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

They were the absolute worst.

1. Elmyra, Tiny Toon Adventures

Warner Bros / Via vernequeneto.tumblr.com

Annoying because: You shouldn’t squeeze the life out of anyone, no matter how much you love them.

2. Angelica Pickles, Rugrats

Nickelodeon / Via hellyeahrugrats.tumblr.com

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!

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

Annoying because: He plays with Harley Quinn’s emotions. Not cool at all.

6. Ed Bighead, Rocko’s Modern Life

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

Cartoon Network / Via mrwgifs.com

Annoying because: She’s possibly the most annoying sister in the history of television. Dexter couldn’t ever work in peace.

9. D.W. Read, Arthur

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!

11. Doctor Claw, Inspector Gadget

DIC Entertainment / Via boards.theforce.net

Annoying because: We never see his face!

12. Scrooge McDuck, Ducktales

Disney / Via wifflegif.com

Annoying because: He’s an old miser.

13. Ms. Muriel Finster, Recess

Annoying because: Although Ms. Finster could be sympathetic at times, she was mostly an overbearing killjoy.

14. Mojo Jojo, The Powerpuff Girls

Cartoon Network / Via alejisrandom.tumblr.com

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


19. Queen Beryl, Sailor Moon

DIC Entertainment / Via sailormoongifs.tumblr.com

20. Montana Max, Tiny Toon Adventures

Warner Bros / Via peteneems.tumblr.com

Annoying because: He’s a spoiled, entitled rich kid. Always insufferable.

21. And Roger Klotz, Doug
