8 Worst Cartoon Characters On Otherwise Good Shows
Annoying characters are hard to do. There's a fine line between funny annoying and just f*%king annoying. Now luckily, most of these characters are usually relegated to supporting roles, but some of them are so terrible that they really can almost ruin a good show. Here's a look at 8 of the most irritating animated characters ever to show up in otherwise good shows!
Pearl Krabs– Spongebob Squarepants
I find this show amusing, but you have to admit, almost every character on it is kind of annoying… in a good way. Except for Pearl Krabs. She is nothing but a whiney, spoiled brat. Just hearing her voice makes me want to stick a rag in her blowhole. Supposedly she is the archetypical teenage girl, but if I were still a teenage girl I would be POd by that notion. That is totally not coral.
Elmyra–Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain
Pinky and The Brain was a good show. And then some dumbasses decide to retool the premise by adding Elmyra Duff, a girl who embodies every single thing that people find annoying about children. I think The Brain's face says it all in the above photo. Someone needs to hug her and kiss her and love her. I'm thinking Lennie from Of Mice and Men would be good for the job.
Dil Pickles– Rugrats
Dil Pickles is widely regarded as The Scrappy Doo of the Rugrats. Annoying, useless and basically brought on the show just in time to help that shark jump. It wasn't like he did anything particularly bad but he somehow still managed to inspire near universal loathing. As one internet commentor put it ' I ABSOLUTELY F*&KING HATED THIS LITTLE DROOLING SH*TBAG WHEN I WAS A KID. I don't know why, but that kind of inexplicable rage cracks me up. I mean, only when it's directed at an animated baby, not like a real baby.
Dee Dee–Dexter's Laboratory
Yes. She's the supposed to be the annoying ditzy sister, but Dee Dee asking 'What does this button do?' got old fast. GTFO Dee Dee!! And that voice.UGH. It's worse than Ke$ha, nails on a chalkboard and a Bieber fart combined. I heard Skrillex was sampling her in his next song.
Poof–The Fairly Oddparents
Another friggin baby character. Just stop with the baby characters brought on to give an ailing cartoon a boost, cartoon makers. You know it's a very common trope now. Do you think you're the one who's gonna make the successful baby character? You are not. See Poof. He almost single-handedly ruined this show with his uncontrollable baby magic. Poof, there it is.
Lisa Simpson–The Simpsons
Golly gee, I hate putting Lisa on this list. I really, really, wanna like her. I do. If only she was smidge less self-righteous nag. Gurllll….don't be so preachy! She's kind of like every vegan, gluten-free, activist ball buster I'm Facebook friends with. I love them. I even agree with them sometimes. But if they post one more damned abused animal photo on my feed, Imma have to hide them. Sometimes I just need a little break from Lisa.
Sarah– Ed, Edd and Eddy
Loud-mouthed, spoiled, bossy, bratty, tattle-tale. There is not ONE nice adjective you can use to describe Sarah. Hey wait a minute…I just noticed that this list is mostly female characters. This just proves that we need more females in the writer's room. DM me on Twitter, boys in charge of cartoon writing!
Very interesting that in the 2011 reboot, Lion-O's loyal pussycat pretty much no longer speaks. I love kitties, but I wanted Snarf snuffed. Luckily he didn't have to die. He just had to get a super-cute makeover.
