1. Elmyra, Tiny Toon Adventures
Annoying because: You shouldn’t squeeze the life out of anyone, no matter how much you love them.
2. Angelica Pickles, Rugrats
Annoying because: Who bosses babies around?! BABIES.
3. Gary Oak, Pokémon
Annoying because: Gary thinks he’s so great as a Pokémon trainer (and he is), but why does he have to be so smug about it?
4. Helga Pataki, Hey Arnold!
Annoying because: Well, she’s hugely passive-aggressive and a jerk to most everyone.

Annoying because: He plays with Harley Quinn’s emotions. Not cool at all.
6. Ed Bighead, Rocko’s Modern Life

7. The Gromble, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters
Annoying because: Mood swings.
8. Dee Dee, Dexter’s Laboratory
Annoying because: She’s possibly the most annoying sister in the history of television. Dexter couldn’t ever work in peace.

Annoying because: Actually, I spoke too soon. D.W. is arguably the most annoying little sibling in the history of television. Sorry, Dee Dee.
10. Jesse and James, Pokémon

15. Iago, Aladdin
Annoying because: Iago was so loud and abrasive, which makes him aggravating by default.
16. Jubilee, X-Men
Annoying because: Jubilee has good intentions, but she always got in the way. She was mostly just a nuisance.
17. Patrick Star, SpongeBob SquarePants
Annoying because: Patrick is incredibly dim, and he’s only funny because you can’t believe one character could be so dopey.
18. Carmen Sandiego, Where on Earth Is Carmen Sandiego?
Annoying because: WHERE IN THE WORLD IS SHE!? LIKE, YOU’D SEE HER, AND THEN SHE’D BE GONE THE NEXT SECOND.
19. Queen Beryl, Sailor Moon
Annoying because: OK, so you’re already QUEEN of the Negaverse and you’re worried about destroying the lives of a group of teenage girls? Got it.
20. Montana Max, Tiny Toon Adventures
Annoying because: He’s a spoiled, entitled rich kid. Always insufferable.
