Since more than 50 years ago, Cartoon Characters have become a basic part of television shows and ultimately a basic part of our lives. We watch them and then we grow into letting our kids watch them even though we – and our parents – have always been complaining about how these shows are “affecting the kids”. We watch some cartoon characters and love them or hate them, and among the characters that annoyed viewers most are these:
1- Scrappy do. Well, I don’t think Scooby Doo show was that successful in the first place, but to add this major flaw of a cartoon character to it is an unforgivable crime. The way I see it, if you see that a show is not generating as much money as it used to do before, you look for new ideas and make a new show. You don’t add annoyingly aggravating characters.
2- Dora, the sickeningly sweet little girl from a sickeningly simple and annoying show. Each time I happen to watch the show and this cartoon character I think that it has been made to teach animals or a jungle child, not real live children at the age of computers and smartphones. Also, making it look like a computer game with an annoying mouse icon hovering around in an attempt to make children buy games of that annoying girl makes me grit my teeth.
3- Spongebob Squarepants. Yeah, I know that many of you love the show, or had loved it at least. But seriously, watch it now. Spongebob is now nothing more than a cash cow. The show has lost its brilliance and glamour. The cartoon characters are now dull and repetitive and the comedy is cheap and lacking. What was once a cast of masterfully written and portrayed characters generating comedy smoothly, are now a bunch of annoying figures resorting to the cheapest tactics to make you laugh.
4- Fanboy from “Fanboy and Chum Chum”. With Spongebob Squarepants and Dora, I wonder if we owe Nickelodeon some money to make it torture us this way. The way Fanboy acts makes you hate to have kids, and the way those two cartoon characters act together makes you hate to have friends. The duo try to make viewers laugh with stupid shenanigans that can actually make you plead for mercy. The toilet seat lord something episode gave me nightmares for months.
5- Dee Dee from “Dexter’s Lab”. They tried to make a cartoon character as annoying as possible in every aspect, and the worst thing happened, they succeeded. Starting from her spoilt manner and ending with the pinkish tint covering anything she likes, anything related to this girl is amazingly horrid.
