    Okay every time I come on here I get some great memories but I also get reminded of show I couldn't bear ..... heres the list


    1.Bobby's world - I hated this show with a passion I recently saw a tape I had that had him on it and I couldn't help but wonder why his parents didn't put him on ritilan .

    2. The wonder years - Okay so what if I was only 5 when it was on Tv all I knew was that it was boring and seemed way to long.


    3. VR trooper if you watched this you were a betraying the power rangers plain and simple .

    4. the new adventures of Whinne the Pooh - God did I hate this show Pooh seemed so dumb to me I also wondered why Christopher Robin didn't play with matchbox cars like all the boys I knew in real life.

    Okay here are some of mine what are yours.

    I never understood Japanese animation and how they show emotion. One moment a character has the usual stoic look on their faces, then the next moment they become chibi-like with the exaggerated sweatdrops and veins popping out of their foreheads. I suppose I'm too harsh about Japanese animation exaggerating emotions; I've seen plenty of Western cartoons where the character's eyes literally pop out in response to seeing something desirable.

    America's Most Wanted used to scare me because I thought the re-enactments were the real thing. Then that led to me getting pissed off because it actually happened in real life. To this day whenever I feel like watching something that makes me mad I watch AMW.

    I hated the cartoon Captain N, or any other Nintendo based show. I was one of the few dumb ones that went the Sega route, so anything to remind me of that mistake, just mad me mad. I also absolutely hated Fraggle Rock. I still do not know exactly why, I just remember wanting to chuck things at the tv when it came on.

    I hated Sailor Moon and still do. I also didn't care for Captain Kangaroo either. Can't think of any others right now.

    I dont know I loved the Muppets, but for some reason Fraggle Rock I just couldnt stand. Did FR ever have guest appearances by any of the regular muppets?

    Pee Wee's Playhouse! Man I hated that show, but suddenly grew to actually like it just a short time before Pee Wee got hauled off for exposing himself. Pee Wee is one of those things I watch for the same reason some people watch Horror Movies.

    I liked Captain N up till season 3, where the animation went to heck in a handbasket pretty quick. At first animation was pretty smooth, and the characters were well drawn, then suddenly it was more like the crap that's out now. Same for all oher Nintendo cartoons, it seemed 1992 was the year it all went downhill at DiC/Saban.

    I was okay with Bobby's world, but it WAS a little weird at times. I think Bobby sang a song that was something about underpants or "jonny underpants", with all this surrealistic animation going on, which was really weird.

    However, the show I absolutley hated, SOUL TRAIN! That meant the end of my whole cartoon block when I was a wee one in the mid-80's! Every time I saw that darn train on screen I wanted to chuck things at the T.V.

    Oh yea, I forgot about that. Couple times I even tried to watch it, but then the whole rest of the day just seemed crappy. Speaking of which, whatever happened to Saturday morning cartoons? Man that was like the highlight of the whole week.

    I really couldn't stand Bobby's World either. Especially his voice. It sounded like Urkals voice filled with twice the amount of helium.

    Though not a cartoon, I wanted to scream every time Barney the Dinosaur came on. Even as a tyke, seeing that show was... yuck. It was worse when my lil sister wanted to watch it (she was such a fangirl of the show) and I was forced to watch it with her.

    Another one, again not a cartoon, was those soap operas my mom watched around the afternoon during the summer when I didnt have school. You can imagine how bored I was when I wanted to watch TV (or play the NES), and all my [few] friends were grounded, too busy etc.

    I hated the soaps to but for a different reasonmy grandmother would tape the soaps because she worked in the afternoon so one day she taped over my disney channel tape that had under the unbrella tree, pound puppies, the wuzzles and welcome to poohs corner .

    David the Gnome. I remember watching it just because it came on before or after something I really liked...I think it was the Elephant Show...but I never did like the Gnomes

    Ren and Stimpy. I wasn't the crude humor kind of kid. I didn't really care for Rocco's Modern Life either

    Barney........ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I had to listen to my peers sing that stupid song (I wuv youuuuu, you wuv meeee, we're a happy famileee!) all through my 6th and 7th grade years of school. Yes, SIXTH AND SEVENTH grade, and THEY made fun of ME for preferring 80's rock....ARGHHHHHHH!

    Soaps, yep, my sisters used to watch them during the summer, thankfully, when I got my NES, I got a separate TV, so I never had to worry about it anymore after tha tpoint. Soaps bore the heck out of me, even today.

    When All that first came out I hated it I didn't watch it until I was a senior in high school. I thought it was stupid and lame but it grew on me.

    2. When Nick change form Snick to Teen Nick and also the shows that came along with Teen Nick . Those shows are terrible there have no drama , no creativity on those shows it's like Nick is just saying that they are happy with what they have.

    3. When NBC got rid of the showing cartoons on Sat mornings by showing the Today show which I can't stand . This was the start of the end of artoons being showed on the 3 major networks thanks a lot NBC.

    Transformers.. I know theyre really popular so people are going to hate me, but I didnt like the art style, it bugged me for some reason.

    I also hated most Nick shows for the same reason. I was happy to have my regular TV, no cable, just cause I didnt see anything I'd be interested in on the other chanels.

    Maya the Bee, Little Bits and Woody Woopecker. My little sister loved these shows but i dispised them. I wanted to strangle her when she put them on. I used to cause a distraction around their air times so she wouldn't realize what time it was....oh and Eureeka's Castle.


    However, i'd watch them today over the crap they're trying to pass off as cartoons nowadays.

    My So Called Life really pissed me off as a child. Claire Danes is an overrated actress (and isn't anywhere as pretty as people inflate her to be), the Jordan Catalano character was a total prick, and the whole show was just so brooding that I couldn't even bother. Clarissa Explains it All also made me mad. I know a lot of people prefer this to "Sabrina", but I'm the opposite. I found it boring and her little brother was a total jackass. The Tick was pretty lame as well. And don't get started on all the Pokemon knock-offs that started swirling around...
