The Ten Worst Animated Films EVER – Redo

At #1 and #3, Pokemon rules the list of Worst Animated Films of All Time. This can’t be a surprise; even calling Pokemon 2000 and Pokemon the First Movie “films” is insulting, since they’re little more than advertisements for a card game. But a lot of people watched them… shame be upon them.

This is the first time in the “Top 10″ blog feature that we’ve looked at the worst of a genre. Any surprises, or surprising omissions?

Note: This is our second version of this list. We originally included some films that had animated CGI characters, but couldn’t really be considered “animation”. Two Garfield films finished 1st and 2nd that list, which amused us enough to let them slide through. But while they’re terrible, terrible movies, it was ultimately incorrect to label them as animation.

#1. Pokemon: The Movie 2000 (2000) – 2.49
Ash Ketchum must put his skill to the test when he attempts to save the world from destruction. The Greedy Pokemon collector Lawrence III throws the universe into chaos after disrupting the balance of nature by capturing one of the Pokemon birds that rule the elements of fire, lightning and ice. Will Ash have what it takes to save the world?

YtadelThe high point of the movie is when they say the word “sex.” In Pokémon! Other than that, it does nothing to elevate itself above Saturday morning cartoon level, which is fine for 21 minutes but not a feature.

#2. Tom and Jerry: The Movie (1992) – 2.61

The popular cartoon cat and mouse are thrown into a disappointing feature film. The story has the twosome trying to help an orphan girl who is being berated and exploited by a greedy guardian.

When a group of scientists are offered funding into genetic research if they agree to try and clone the greatest ever Pokemon, Mew, the end result is success and Mewtwo is born. However Mewtwo is bitter about his purpose in life and kills his masters. In order to become the greatest he throws open a challenge to the world to battle him and his Pokemon. Ash and his friends are one of the few groups of trainers who pass the first test and prepare for battle. However they soon find out about further cloning and Mew 2’s ultimate plan for the earth.

#4. Home on the Range (2004) – 2.70

When a greedy outlaw named Alameda Slim (Quaid) schemes to take possession of the "Patch of Heaven" dairy farm, three determined cows (Barr, Dench, Tilly), a karate-kicking stallion named Buck (Gooding Jr.), and a colorful corral of critters join forces to save the farm in a wild quest full of high-spirited adventure. (Disney)

Davey Stone, a 33-year old party animal, finds himself in trouble with the law after his wild ways go too far. In keeping with the holiday spirit, the judge gives Davey one last chance at redemption – spend the holiday performing community service as the assistant referee for the youth basketball league or go to jail.

#6. Barnyard (2006) – 3.01

On his way to the planet of youth, Tyler wipes out most of a space colony and kidnaps a sexy woman. His big mistake is that he doesn’t kill the woman’s sister, Julie, who then sets out on a mission of rescue and revenge.

#8. The Rugrats Movie (1998) – 3.13

Can they find their way home and can Tommy and Dil just get along?

 

#9. Cool World (1992) – 3.16

    Where’s Doogal? Doogal is crap…

    Can we really call the TMNT III animated tho?

  3. 3 mpowell

    You’re right … TMNT III is a terrible film, but not traditional animation, so we’ve remove it from the list. Much to the chagrin of the Rugrats, who now occupy spot #10.

  4. 4 ORLANDO

    Is Garfield really an animated feature? Just because the character is animated doesn’t make it “an animated feature”. In that case, King Kong (the Jackson one) and LOTR would be animated.

    ‘Great’ list, haha.

    Pokemon 2000 was awfull, blegh.

  7. 7 Steve Stanchfield

    You can’t really ever consider Spirit or Cool World in any ‘worst’ list, since they’re nowhere near so much of the dreck that’s insulted our eyes over the years. ‘Dirty Duck’ and ‘We’re back’ HAVE to come way under these, as would Hugo the Hippo, the Care Bears movies (though the first is almost tolerable..) and a hundered others….

    Not to forget the four Charlie Brown animated movies between 1969 and 1980, the Disney animated movies that left me bored and who else last of course is that stupid cat who ruined the ill-fated Shrek franchise goes by the luckily name of Puss in Boots the idea of turning Perrault’s good feline hero into a Errol Flynn wannabe does not work with the character I’m afraid!

  11. 11 bigg3469

    May I also add “Titanic The Animated Movie” and it’s two sequels to the worst list. This was known as “The WORST animated movie ever created” with “singing Mexican mice” who look like rejects from a Speedy Gonzales cartoon, a “Custey-Wusety face Octopus (EEEEEEEEW!!) and…..A DOG WHO RAPS!?!?! This took place in 1912 one hundred years agoand WTFH Is a Rapping Dog doing in 1912 England??? I hope they never show this piece of garbage during the cenntenal year of the Titanic tragic sinking or ever again!!!

    @ Bryan Lynch,

    First the two Peanuts animated feature films (A Boy Name Charlie Brown and SNOOPY Come Home) were pretty good but the other two (Race For Your Life Charlie Brown and Bon Voyage Charlie Brown (And Don’t Come Back!) ) sucked big time. Also only Disney Animated film that sucked was the Madagascar ripoff “The Wild” and the Dreamworks version of “Puss in Boots” was better that a animated ripoff of the same film that starred William Shanter.
