10 Cartoon Characters That Annoyed Us So Much We Almost Stopped Watching TV

- Page 1

It seems like every cartoon we ever watched needed a character whose sole purpose was to piss us off, and in the case of these 10, they were very, VERY good at it.

Tiny Toon Adventures - Elmyra Duff

Warner Bros.

I almost want to cut her some slack because she's a young girl who loves animals and clearly doesn't know any better, but good lord was she annoying for every second of her existence. Not only that, but hurting animals isn't exactly a great way to win any love from the audience.

The Flintstones - The Great Gazoo


You know your show's running out of ideas when you introduce an alien that can warp reality at will and that only one or two of the characters can see. Gazoo's antics were annoying enough, but his pompous voice just made him the worst.

Arthur - D.W. Read


D.W. was basically every bratty sister combined into one character. Tattle-tale? Check. Cries when called out on her BS? Check. Constantly snooping into things that don't concern her? Check. Ugh, she's awful.

Dexter's Laboratory - Dee Dee

Cartoon Network

It has to be hard to be a six-year-old kid with the mind of a genius, and it's gotta be even worse when your sister is a constant terror. Every time Dexter had a new invention or experiment in the works, you could bet that Didi would show up and ruin it.

Sure, she cared about her brother and was mostly just dumb, but it was hard not to want her to just go away.

The characters just get worse from here folks...

The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if


'Clarissa Explains It All' Reboot Is Apparently In The Works, And Melissa Joan Hart Is Involved

We first met Melissa Joan Hart in 1991 when she stepped onto the scene as Clarissa Darling. She was cool, unique, and iconic in her time. She's credited as the first female lead of a Nickelodeon show, and because of her they were able to make many other hit series like The Secret World of Alex Mack and The Amanda Show. But Clarissa was truly one-of-a-kind.  I mean, how many people do you know who owned a baby alligator named Elvis? Her show was different then a lot of others, because she would directly address the audience. She dealt


'Blue's Clues' Is Coming Back, But You May Not Like The New Look

We all remember watching Blue's Clues right? Sure, a lot of us were older, but personally I remember the kids I used to babysit being obsessed with it. "There's a clue!" the children would scream at the top of their lungs, and I would cringe, because I knew that Steve wasn't going to hear them. They would only scream louder, but he would pretend like he couldn't see the big blue paw print in the middle of his cartoon house. This would go on for many, many minutes. Steve took care of Blue, while solving the mysteries that she would
