Some cartoons are like childhood friends - you treasure them. You remember all the funny moments they brought to your life, and you know them inside and out. They are pop icons that somehow can unite people together thanks to their awesome characters and cool animations. Your childhood was even more awesome because of cartoons. That's why you would love your children to watch cartoons too. But what cartoons exactly? Some of these animated tv shows are downright bad for children. They might be interesting, but they pass on no positive lessons. Worse, they may be full of violence, sex and foul language. That's why we've curated a list of the 10 worst cartoons for kids to watch.

Even though the plot is based on the adventures of a family, the show is far from family-oriented. Endearingly ignorant Peter and his stay-at-home wife Lois have three kids. Meg, the eldest child, is a social outcast, and teenage Chris is awkward and clueless when it comes to the opposite sex. The youngest, Stewie, is a genius baby bent on killing his mother and destroying the world. The talking dog, Brian, keeps Stewie in check while sipping martinis and sorting through his own life issues. Hardly the sort of content that children should be exposed to.
We're not sure that this animated series was created with children in mind. There are no family values to take away from here, and the Simpsons children are not exactly the model of stellar kids. The head of the Simpson family, Homer, is not a typical family man. A nuclear-plant employee, he does his best to lead his family but often finds that they are leading him. The family includes loving, blue-haired matriarch Marge, troublemaking son Bart, overachieving daughter Lisa and baby Maggie.
Sanjay and Craig
This Nickelodeon animated series has almost all the trappings of educative entertainment. Sanjay Patel doesn't know the meaning of "uncool" or "impossible." The 12-year-old has great curiosity and excitement about the world. Joining Sanjay is his best friend, Craig, who is a talking snake and master of disguise that can turn into just about anything or anyone. The problem is Sanjay's adventures are sometimes ridiculous, gross or odd. You don't want your kids to develop an unrealistic view of the world.
Despite initial criticism that its action violence targeted child audiences, the franchise has continued, and as of 2019 the show consists of 26 television seasons of 20 different themed series and three theatrical films released in 1995, 1997 and 2017.
Avatar: The Legend of Korra
This follow-up series to "Avatar: The Last Airbender" follows Korra, the next avatar from the Southern Water Tribe. With earth, water and fire under her belt, Korra must master the art of airbending. Korra is bisexual, which is not palatable news in Nigeria. In fact, it's a crime punishable by law. Because kids can be very impressionable, it's not a good idea to expose them to content of this type.
While it may seem that this cartoon has a strong family theme, it is an adult cartoon and shouldn't be exposed to kids. It features strong language and sexual content. Your kids shouldn't be watching it as there's no positive take away for them.
This animated series airs on Cartoon Network. It tells the story of Naruto Uzumaki, a young ninja who searches for recognition from his peers and also dreams of becoming the Hokage, the leader of his village. It would be an inspirational experience to have your kids learn from Naruto about chasing dreams. However, the show is laced with a high degree of martial arts violence. You may not be able to stop the kids from practicing dangerous moves at home.
Don't be fooled by the presence of 8 and 10 year old kids in this cartoon. It is far from family oriented. it s an adult series that features strong language and violence. It is not for kids.
Kids love racing, so why not put all their favourite characters into a bunch of cars, right? Well, the premise seems great if you're in a boardroom, but not if you're an actual kid. The races are dull, the characters never really have any dimension. The plot lines were all the same, and the villains weren't really that evil. Not very interesting. Borrrring!
Pinky and the Brain
It is chaotic cartooning with Brain, the genius mouse and his stupid sidekick who try to conquer the world each night. While it's great to want to conquer the world, nobody should talk to their friend the way Brain talks to Pinky.
