A few I'd like to suggest:

Mighty Ducks:  the animated series
Quack Pack
anything from disney after Gargoyles got cancelled.
anything from cartoon network after 2000 (aside from adult swim)
Thundercats!  Try watching it again after being a kid; you'll see what I mean.
Digimon's worse than Pokemon
So's Yu-Gi-Oh!  (they should call it Yucky-Oh)
Sniffles the mouse!
"Tom & Jerry Kids" and "Muppet Babies" for the same reasons as Baby Looney Tunes
This Just In, and Gary the Rat(believe me, Stripperella's the best out of all the Spike TV toons... even if you hate it)
The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3
Sonic Underground
Sonic X
A few of the new TMNT cartoons
Kirby:  Right back Atcha!
(Jumping into movies) 
*All the Land Before time sequels.  ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
*Alice in Wonderland... boring and episodic IMO.
*Hey Good Lookin'.  I saw a speck of this with my dad, but I couldn't watch any more.
*I'm a little iffy on Pocahontas.  It's a great film, but the inaccuracies sort of ruin it.
(Let's do comic strips too)
-Family Circus
-Dennis the Menace
-One Big Happy
-Sally Forth

That's enough of my griping...

I think Strawberry Shortcake should be higher up the list. That awful song about optimism... and the fact that the characters are called things like "Strawberry Shortcake" and "Orange Blossom" and "Honey Pie". Even having a pony in it is pure evilness.
The voice acting is really annoying. No expression whatsoever and the accents are so cutesy and awful.
As well as that, Huckleberry is thoroughly irritating. The way he calls himself "Huck" and rides a skateboard... it's so sad that the producers probably think they're "with it" by introducing him.
And the way they say "berry" instead of "very"... AAAAAAARRGHHH!!!!!
WHAT IS THE MEANING OF ALL THIS FOOLISHNESS?!

Some new entries:



Van Brueren's "Tom & Jerry"...no, not the cat & mouse... the bland/unfunny early '30's duo :P


"Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi"

"Megas XLR"

"Totally Spies"

"Mel O Toons"

"Buzzy the Crow"



Though I forgot about  Sniffles the Mouse.  :P

I must be the only person here who liked Hammerman. Oh. I heard the theme tune to that recently and I laughed my head off.

"He was given magical shoes
By a hip-hop motown dude
Together they had power
They stood up for what was right"

Absolutely priceless.  ;D

Some cartoons I particularly don't like are Digimon and the batman animated series.
