    21 Annoying Cartoon Characters Every '90s Kid Loved To Hate

    They were the absolute worst.

    1. Elmyra, Tiny Toon Adventures

    Annoying because: Who bosses babies around?! BABIES.

    3. Gary Oak, Pokémon

    Warner Bros. / Via spazztastic-muffin.tumblr.com

    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!

    Nickelodeon / Via a-gif-for-you.tumblr.com

    Annoying because: Well, she's hugely passive-aggressive and a jerk to most everyone.

    5. The Joker, Batman: The Animated Series

    Warner Bros. / Via fyeahbatmantheanimatedseries.tumblr.com

    6. Ed Bighead, Rocko's Modern Life

    Nickelodeon / Via ed-bigheadplz.deviantart.com

    Annoying because: He's so jealous of Rocko, and it's so obvious. He's probably unhappy about his miserable marriage with Bev Bighead.

    7. The Gromble, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters

    Nickelodeon / Via mygifdump.tumblr.com

    Annoying because: Mood swings.

    8. Dee Dee, Dexter's Laboratory

    9. D.W. Read, Arthur

    PBS / Via lukeseymoup.tumblr.com

    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

    Warner Bros. / Via wishpicker.com

    Annoying because: They seriously failed at every attempt to capture rare Pokémon. However, The Team Rocket motto almost makes up for that. PREPARE FOR TROUBLE!

    Annoying because: We never see his face!

    12. Scrooge McDuck, Ducktales

    Annoying because: When has being a megalomaniac worked out for anyone?

    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

    Nickelodeon / Via giphy.com

    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?

    Fox / Via worldduh.com

    Annoying because: WHERE IN THE WORLD IS SHE!? LIKE, YOU'D SEE HER, AND THEN SHE'D BE GONE THE NEXT SECOND.

    20. Montana Max, Tiny Toon Adventures

    Warner Bros / Via peteneems.tumblr.com

    Annoying because: He's a bully, and not only that, he had a crush on Doug's sister, Judy, who was equally as annoying.
