Because my opinions actually matter. Picture

Forgive me if you love these guys, its just a trivial opinion. None of these images/creations belong to me, they all belong to their prospective companies and authors, yadda yadda, let's get rolling:

10. MUFFY CROSSWIRE- Originally Olive Oyl took this spot, but you will see later why I didn't bother putting her here as her traits get all covered and then some by #7. She is an obvious fossil of the time she was getting hyped so I can grudgingly allow her some slack, and while she is a sexist and bland annoying plot device, I don't hate HER really as a character for what she's done/her behavior, olive's just a rescue token who whines alot. The reason Muffy is here is because she was a whiney, obnoxiously girly, spoilt little BITCH who went from being a general aristocratic snob, to an actual monster: Asides teasing poorer people/refusing to stoop to their level of life when she has to, she is obsessed with her self-image and cannot tolerate people who do not have the same feelings about their own looks. She is a sore loser, a liar, talks only about herself, expects people to wait on her hand and foot, mocks everyone openly, brags constantly about how successful her father is, and does all the rich kid stereotype bullshit that we hate. The worst she's probably ever done is exploiting her friends creative cookie recipe idea for a giant profit behind their back and makes COOKIES SHAPED LIKE HERSELF instead, and that sell like crazy, and when they object, Muffy doesn't care a bit that they are upset, and when she finally does crack, she goes and makes some cookies with THEIR likenesses. Oh that's so nice of you. Did you offer to split any of the profit with them??? Mention on the box WHO came up with the idea, or did you just add 'and friends' to the box? Despite Muffy ironically being best friends the most with Francine, who appeared to be the kind of token 'urban poor tomboy' girl, and their relationship showed much depth and conflict that helped them both to evolve to become slightly better people, Muffy has still made me along with similar other rich brat girls in real life and on tv as a kid learn to distrust ALL rich ppl and feminine things like putting on makeup. While that's slightly founded in reality, when you grow up realizing not every popular pretty girl is a douche, but some are actually popular for a good REASON, you start to wonder why is it theyre always presented that way and i wish Muffy hadnt brainwashed my early childood into this kind of bigoted skewed view of Feminine girls or Rich girls as all being horrid, i'd maybe been a more tolerant kid and had a better awareness of how to make my face up and realize the awesome artistry and the amazing hard work that goes into makeup/fashion as i know of of now, if only it wasnt so villified to me.

9. QUACKERS- A popular cutesy Tom & Jerry plot device, not much else. Just look at that PWESHUS WIDDLE FACE! I want to punch it and then put it in a blender. I want to put THAT blender into a blender when he starts to talk. I do not care for Tom and Jerry but I do not hate it, I'll watch it if nothing's on and study the facial animation/have the occasional chuckle at a well timed gag and cameo. Like Donald Duck but without the attitude, or humorous timing, the only credit I can give this kid is he's well animated. He's not just over-the-top kyood and annoyingly squawky/high pitched, he's also a self-absorbed EMO, always whining how 'nobuddy wikes me coz I kand shwimmm', or 'nobuddy wikes me coz I kand fwy!' etc etc. He is STUPID and literally every 4 minutes is either getting captured/swallowed/ or completely falling for every trick Tom or a predator throws. I know he's a baby but gimme a break. Babies can sense danger. This is just sheer idiocy, and it was pandering to the fans in the worst way possible at the time. And what disgusts me most of all is that it worked.

8. HAROLD- 'Hey Arnold' was a great show. It was not perfect, it often had flat plots and big continuity errors. But it was entertaining, touching and sincerely written, even controversial and heartbreakingly depressing at times. Harold here was the usual main antagonist. When somebody planned out something he screwed it up. He'd yell out any minor social faux-pas he'd see then relentlessly mock them, or threaten to beat you up. (he was more bark than bite though.) He was not the sole bully, what I liked about the show was that there never were ANY perfect characters (save Arnold, who is Jesus Jr or something). It showed the accepted universal experience of grade school as the dumb, colorful, and unique hell that it is: Your best buddies who'd rescue you from getting hit by a bus one minute could start name-calling you for weeks, all just because you caught lice or spilled a cup of juice onto your pants crotch. And it wasn't personal. All the kids in this show, even the nice ones at some point or other laughed cruelly together, peer pressured or bullied other children just because, well, they were kids! Not because they were jocks or had vendettas or actually cared about popularity status-(except for Rhonda). They all were dumb immature brats who never analyzed what they said or did, they just knew they were in the same dog-eat-dog world and had to make the most of enjoying it, even if it came at the expense of others. So what makes Harold bad? BECAUSE HE IS TOO REAL. HE IS TOO annoying. HE IS TOO CRUEL. HE IS TOO. FUCKING. STUPID. And in exactly the right ways every worst idiot in your life ever was. All the rude obnoxious loudmouthed idiots who THINK they are the witty class clowns, but really just make the actual class clowns sigh and roll their eyes, or the guys who drive by you to shout a very not clever insult, or make lame suggestive pick up lines, this is him. The guy who draws graffiti cocks on 9-11 memorials for no reason, this is him. The Tea Party would adopt him as their mascot, because he's the ideal guy for yelling out bigoted and obviously dumb messages of mistrust/violence without questioning what he is even talking about. He is a dumb glutton who makes fat people look retarded, if not evil. HE SWIPED A HAM for god's sake. A WHOLE HAM, compulsively, from a butcher's shop, without knowing why! Now that is just pathetic. Harold gets the ball rolling when the teasing is good, and when the teasing is 100% NOT good and nobody in their right mind would see any reason to poke fun at something like The Holocaust or paint drying, or see any need to crack a whiney loud complaint when something poignantly sad or beautiful is happening like a sunset or a funeral, this kid will: And worst of all he won't even know WHY. Speaking of the Holocaust this kid is Jewish. I took great annoyance to that even as a kid, not because he was a racist stereotype in any way- his sarcastic fat doting parents which are totally obvious Brooklyn Jew stereotypes much more compared to him, I found them funny and loveable and even somewhat accurate. But because he just was so damn aggravating and strangely UGLY I felt I was being slightly misaligned somehow. But I couldn't figure out in what way. I think it was a total coincidence honestly, a detail the writers threw in late to make this flat bully more depth/show his family off better. I have to actually give the creators some kudos for that. You couldn't get away with something like this nowadays. Maybe the reason Harold's jewish-ness combined with his ghastly caricature face and personality didn't cause much stir is because nearly EVERYBODY on this show had a ghastly looking body and personality somehow, and he wasn't really evil, he was just an ignorant dumb little kid, like any other. He had a heart and even nurtured a lost kitten in a very sweet episode. When truly made to understand how he hurt people, he'd always shamefully apologize/try to fix it up. The reason he is farther down on this list though is I just find his voice absolutely grating beyond belief, worse than all the other people above him, and I think that is for comedy so you'll laugh when he get's his butt kicked like he deserves, but it it goes way over the top, and everything he says isn't funny- and I think that is exactly how the creators wanted him to be. He's almost like Cartman if you take away all the crazy impossible stuff that makes you love him despite being a complete evil jerkass.

7. PETUNIA PIG- One of the obscurer Warner Bros characters, she's basically the Olive Oyl version of Porky Pig. Except more obnoxious. While Olive Oyl has kept to her original form really for the most part, Petunia has gone through quite an evolution. And I have to say it has gone from bad to worse. Petunia started out very very ugly and had a bitchy Betty Boopish kind of voice. Over time as Porky evolved she got higher in pitch, and her face got cuter. TOO GODDAMN CUTE. Don't believe me? Do a Youtube search for 'Peace World' or whatever that loveydovey musical short about feuding southern families that makes you wanna throw up is called. Was this the end? No. She got even KYOODER until she became that abomination you see up there in Looney Tunes Babies. She has been a little bit saved in the newest retcon series, but it's not enough to keep her from being one of the most forgettable characters ever made. Petunia started out with Porky in some of the earliest Looney Tunes shorts, back when they were exclusively played in theaters. She mainly served what Nostalgia Chick called 'The Smurfette Principle' (go look it up.) and was about as deep as a piece of paper. So why is she lower than Olive Oyl? Her voice and hideous appearance and behavior is not just annoying, it INCREASES in annoyance, with every completely different shift she takes with every retcon. In her first form, she is fat and disgustingly hideous. She is a snooty tramp who teases poor Porky, abuses him, eats chocolate all day like its water, and whines and moans whenever she is argued with or if there is trouble behind Porky's back, whenever she isn't openly flirting with him or slamming the door in his face. This character made me terrified at a young age of the idea of falling in love and true marriage, because when I witnessed Porky doing it, it inevitably led to that popular depiction of the miserable post-honeymoon 'ball-and-chain' future hell. Yknow, where after they say I DO! and they kiss, it goes to black, and then it says 3 YEARS LATER...cut to a whole shitty apartment full of wailing thousands of babies, a spoiled fat wife/husband on the couch drinking beer in front of the TV, and a poor beleaguered terrified domestic abuse victim beating the carpets/vacuuming/doing the dishes/scrubbing the toilet/washing the windows/praising the spouse timidly. HA HAH HAH!!! SEE? It's funny cos they are MARRIED! Doesn't marriage just SUCK? hahahaha!....ehhh. Yknow, I get where the humor is supposed to lie, in that this is (in most stories) a paranoid FANTASY, based on the universal fears of insecurity we all get when for the first time truly committing to a relationship, when we don't really know what lies in store or how really perfect our lover actually is when all the makeup gets washed off. I hated Married With Children for this reason and all the other shows/episodes like this. Mainly because I grew up as a child witnessing my own parent's who married/had me very young start to lose their ability to communicate sanely with each other when they started to doubt one another. While things never got dangerously bad overall, to watch every passing year from the get-go a supposed perfectly happy family sustained by True Love turn sour, crumble and die, and watch that with the full guilty awareness that because of you, these two once passionate people with dreams settled down and became boring, stuffy, cold cynical grouchy overworked people, because they had to do their best to be good parents, always accusing which one was being the over-worked servant and which one was being the lazy spoiled brat: when in reality BOTH were equally hard-working loving parents and flawed but overall decent human beings who could have probably if they really tried and had better circumstances kept their marriage together or at least ended on more graceful notes...but instead, thanks to media brainwashing and self-doubt, they still beleive it was their self image that caused the break up, beleive it was the 'universal' mid-life stage of ugliness/grouchiness/old flames dying setting in, that they both deserved younger, better looking, completely content robots who never ever played any mind games and were rich and always had time to praise constantly, and any lack of such was indication that something was wrong with themselves: when such a creature does not exist...I know this may seem a bit ludicrous to attach all this personal baggage to an obscure cartoon character, but that was what such on and off angry unhappy/happy/unhappy couples as the old school Petunia/Porky pig stereotype meant to me. I know abusive/dried up but upheld/unpleasent marriages exist, and all do for their own personal reasons. I know that there is dark reality being poked fun at when people make these jokes, and it was especially popular back in the day to make a 'dominating wife' marriage joke, I think mainly because to be under the thumb of a dominant let alone what you'd consider spoiled woman was just so rare those days, at least in the media. Spoiled abusive over-reproducing people are vile in either sex, but there seems to be comedic tolerance of it when its a woman and not a male- if a male is the lazy dysfunctional oaf or brute, it tends to be either of a much darker sort of humor at stake, where everybody is fucked up like in The Simpsons, or it is played 100% to drama. Anyway. Even without all these connotations, the later Petunias I just find disgustingly saccharine, and even more irritating to listen to than the other voices listed above.

6. CAPTAIN KOROS- Now here's a very different example, a person on here that I actually LIKE. To a degree. This man is a 'heroic' character from the Don Bluth film Titan A.E. This is an awesome cult sci-fi film. When I saw it, it highly influenced my imagination and many races and characters developed simply out of watching that. It was a taste of what 2d Western animation could give us adults if we just goddamn LET IT. BUT NOPE! Gotta maintain that Animation Ghetto! Thanks America
