List Rules It's all about what you can't stand. Vote up the most annoying shows ever!

There's something about TV shows made for children that can really put the rest of the world on edge. The loudness, the obnoxious voices, sounds, and music, the cheesy storylines – there's nothing about these shows that aren't completely vomit-inducing. The shows on this list exemplify the absolute worst of the worst. 

Which kids' shows are the most annoying? That's up for you to decide. Vote up all the TV shows you think are the most annoying, and vote down the ones you find more tolerable. Either way, kids will still probably watch them! 

These are the most annoying childrens tv shows.
