Friar’s Ass-Hat Cartoon Hall of Fame
(*) In no specific order
You know a shows’ writers are starting to grasp at straws and run out of ideas, whenever they have to introduce a lame-ass side-kick. And an asshole one, at that.
Seriously. Who LIKES this little shit?
Just Google “I hate Scrappy” and you’ll be suprised at how many sites you come up with.
Wonder-Twin powers, activate!
Shape of…a retarded monkey.
Form of…the point in time, at which Superfriends jumped the shark.
I had happily managed to repress this awful childhood memory for a few decades, until I recently flipped channels and re-discovered “The New Adventures of BatMan” on the Cartoon Network.
I never had a problem with Batman or Robin, despite their questionable man/boy relationship. (Which, even my Mom had pointed out was a little fishy…)
But I have NO idea WTF Bat-Mite is.
All I know is I wish it would must DIE! DIE! DIE!
Hah hah! Bet you forgot about this one, didn’t you?
Again, another gem from the 1970’s, that Golden Era of creating Saturday Morning Cartoons from past-their-prime TV shows.
I never got into the regular Partridge Family that much in the first place. (I always considered them the B-Team, compared to the Brady Bunch.)
But to make a cartoon version, and to turn it into a rip-off of the JETSONS?
Strike one. Strike two. Strike three. Yerrrr OUT.
Newton the Centaur
If you were a Canadian born between 1964 and 1975, chances are you know you all about Newton and The Mighty Hercules
For those who aren’t, just imagine an androgynous (possibly gay) centaur, who repeats everything twice, in an annoying high-pitched, whinnying voice.
I watched Hercules for the first time when I was five, and even at that age, I could already recognize the extreme ass-hatted-ness of Newton.
But hey, at least he could SPEAK.
…unlike his autistic buddy, Toot, who could only communicate via flute-music.
Unless you’re a little boy, between ages 6-10, there is absolutely NOTHING of any redeemable quality, here.
Seems things started to go to Hell in a hand basket, just at the precise moment when they brought out this cartoon.
I blame Pokémon for bringing the onset the decline of our civilization, as we know it.
Prove me wrong, folks.
Passe-Partout (Honorable Mention)
Okay, you had to grow up in Quebec to have seen this one. This gets an honorable mention, because they aren’t really cartoons, they’re puppets.
But puppets 100 times more obnoxious than Elmo.
Words fail to describe how ass-hat this is. It’s best to see it yourself.
And (Good Lord) especially HERE:
