Top 10: Irritating '90s Cartoon Characters

Number 10

Bonkers D. Bobcat


By 1993, America was clamoring for a sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit? What they got instead was Bonkers, a cheap knockoff that featured a similarly washed-up movie star with a penchant for slapstick comedy and detective work. Had the principal character been more endearing, it could have worked, but Bonkers D. Bobcat was little more than a pale imitation of Roger whose tired antics were more annoying than absurd. Disney finally realized their mistake two years later and put Bonkers and his costars out of their collective misery by dropping a giant anvil on the series.

Number 9



Although science has yet to confirm our suspicions, we’re convinced that the only sound more annoying than fingernails on a chalkboard is the ungodly screech of Gilbert Gottfried’s voice; that’s just one of the reasons we labeled Iago one of the most irritating ‘90s cartoon characters. He was also a villainous scarlet macaw who performed the evil bidding of his master Jafar. We also hated his seemingly endless sarcastic rants that had all the bite of a toothless poodle. Hey, if we wanted to hear an angry diatribe, we’d just listen to our girlfriends.

Number 8

Angelica Charlotte Pickles


We’ve never trusted children. They’re frequently spoiled and ill-tempered, and Angelica Pickles is certainly no exception. This bratty little 3 year old is a hellion with pigtails who keeps her neglectful parents under her tiny little thumb. If Angelica were our little girl, we would have given her an extended time-out that would have lasted until her 21st birthday.

Number 7



Just because a character is the focal point of an amusing comic strip, doesn’t mean that he has the charisma to star in his very own half-hour cartoon show. That was the case with Dilbert, our No. 7 irritating ‘90s cartoon character. He was an excruciatingly boring electrical engineer whose life was as dull as his red- and black-striped tie. Luckily for us, producers came to their senses and gave this office drone the pink slip after just 10 episodes.

Number 6


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had no shortage of aggravating characters, so choosing just one irritating ‘90s cartoon character from this show isn’t easy. However, Rocksteady wins hands down because of his sheer stupidity and ineptitude. A 6’8”, 540-poung rhinoceros with the brain of a walnut, Rocksteady was so dense that he made Beavis and Butthead look like Nobel laureates.

Number 5

Max Goof

Goof Troop

Remember when producers of the Itchy & Scratchy Show attempted to liven up their program by introducing Poochie, a skateboard-riding beagle with sunglasses and a backwards hat? That’s exactly what Disney did back in 1992 when they created Goof Troop, an animated show that followed the offbeat adventures of Goofy’s son, Max. However, rather than being a hipper version of his old man, the newest member of the Goofy clan was little more than a thinly disguised marketing ploy created by a bunch of out-of-touch middle-aged suits. Much like Poochie, Max was also universally reviled, forcing Disney to put their ill-advised creation to sleep after just 10 episodes.

Number 4 (Really?)

SpongeBob SquarePants

SpongeBob SquarePants

What can you say about a character whose audience seems to consist exclusively of prepubescent children and 35-year-old gay men? Maybe they see something we don’t, because every time we tune in we find SpongeBob’s earnest and well-meaning attitude to be more irritating than a lawn dart lodged in our left eye. As if his overbearing optimism weren’t bad enough, this glowing sea sponge always tries far too hard, which inevitably creates problems not only for himself, but for everyone around him too.

234i top 10 list

Number 3

Lisa Simpson

The Simpsons

No one likes a know-it-all, which is why we’ve always despised Lisa. The glaring weak link in an otherwise brilliant program, Lisa is a boring bookworm whose favorite activities include attending school and reading Non-Threatening Boys magazine. As if she weren’t enough of an irritating ‘90s cartoon character already, this 8-year-old overachiever is also a raging feminist and environmental crusader whose judgmental attitude always prevents others from enjoying themselves. If only she learned to kick back and enjoy a few dozen cans of Duff beer like Homer, we’re sure we’d enjoy her more.

234j top 10 list

Number 2

Captain Planet
Captain Planet and the Planeteers

There’s nothing more annoying than a cartoon character with zero sense of humor, which is why we always rushed to turn the channel whenever we saw Captain Planet on our screen. This holier-than-thou eco avenger is an ancient entity who has been protecting the environment and delivering sleep-inducing lectures about the evils of smog for multiple centuries. Maybe it’s just his feathery green mullet, but we could never take this guy and his rants about recycling newsprint seriously.

Number 1

Pikatchu (WHAT!!)


Arguably the most annoying anime character ever created, Pikachu was a miniature yellow creature who was so lame he could have had his ass kicked by Hello Kitty. Still, we’ve always wondered what a Pikachu might taste like...

    ehm spongebob is not from the 90's? And also I feel really really old and I would like to retire right after college but I am not 35 and as far as I know I am not gay

    and I think lisa fits great in that family, if I want to watch a family made of idiots I would only watch american dad or family guy (which I also like but still)

    well whoever made this does not enjoy cartoons at all, or has been too old in the 90's to enjoy them

    i loved goof troop and could have swore there was more than 10 episodes o.o

    Yeah, same goes for me.

    Might I add that, with the exception of Firefly (and I'm not going to get off on a rant about that), I really don't think production studios are in the habit of making movies based on a show that died after 10 episodes; especially not Disney.

    I'm not going to make any personal attacks, because it's MissRandom, and she get's unlimited "get out of jail free cards" ;)
    and that's why she gets a +2 lol.
    - godsgift April 16, 2012, 8:23 pm
    lol this is is NOT my opinion
    i made this post so i can get you all here to argue and share your personal thoughts
    NOT because i agree with whomever made this
    i love lisa
    i love max
    i love lago
    pikatchu! etc
    so yea.. the reason i made this post is clear.. and here you are guys XD arguing

    spongebob isnt from the 90's AND spongebob is awesome

    The pilot episode of SpongeBob SquarePants first aired in the United States on Nickelodeon on May 1, 1999
    isn't that considered to be in the 1990's?

    Fuck this opinion right in the fuckin' face with my opinion.
    Pikachu would objectively BATTER THE TITS off of HK if she were his opponent in a battle.
    If not, HK would probably join her shitty suicide club and shriek about dead hookers being beanbag chairs.
    My point is that Hello Kitty is a kitty, and Pikachu is a mouse.
    This is where the irony comes in.
    Hello kitty is hydrocephalic and apparently an amputee.
    Pikachu used Lightning Bolt. It's. Fucking. Devastating.

    tell me about it :(
    i was shocked when i saw that.. BUT.. it's on here for a reason XD
    - MissRandom April 18, 2012, 12:45 pm
    Fuck that reason.
    Fuck that logic.
    Fuck its producers.
    Fuck their parents.
    Now that their parents are preggers, get that kid and raise it RIGHT.
    This post is just a few captions away from "Omg Liek if U Cri Erytym" for /vp/
    - Inedibleedible April 18, 2012, 2:45 pm
    i duno what the hell is /vp/ but you crossed so many lines Mister!
    relax and chill
    you dun have to curse in front of a lady! not like that!
    i brought this post here so i can hear you all argue and get to see how that works out for you
    people use words to express their emotions and anger! not curse words!
    - MissRandom April 18, 2012, 2:48 pm
    Allow me to extend apologies.
    You're absolutely right, as my filthy mouth; rather fingertips, have spewed vulgarity at an alarming rate.
    I am plenty lax and chill.
    This issue is meaningless, but if it is indeed met, it can only go one way.
    After that, if you can prove to me that curse words aren't used for expressing anger, I will never fuckin' curse again.
    Love you.
    I'm so sorry,'s not at all like me.

    Edit: But come the fuck on.
    - Inedibleedible April 18, 2012, 3:22 pm
    you are one of a kind sir :D lol (the last edited part)
    what i meant to say was that gentlemen use words to express anger not curse words
    you are forgiven :D
    it is the internet afterall
    it would be suspecious if you DON'T swear :D
    - MissRandom April 18, 2012, 3:31 pm
    Plus 3 for intention, 'cause that honestly matters most in an action, that is without speculation and so called "justice" being brought or fabricated.
    - Inedibleedible April 18, 2012, 3:45 pm
    english is NOT my first language, captin..
