The annoying kid. It's an affliction even the most classic of series' can't escape. Medieval fantasy realms, spy thrillers, '60s period pieces—they all have that one bratty child, the problematic infant, and/or the moody, woe-is-me teen that fucks up our vibe.

The current state of TV is more plagued with frustrating children than ever, with the confused, increasingly sociopathic Carl Grimes on The Walking Dead leading the pack, and we're sure we'll be tired of hearing about Ashley Judd's much ballyhooed abducted son on Missing by the fifth episode in.

Of course we appreciate the predicament. If, for example, Walking Dead didn't explore how growing up in a post-apocalyptic world would affect a kid, the show would be creatively irresponsible for it. Doesn't mean we still don't roll our eyes when we're watching at home. Read on for The 25 Most Annoying Kid Characters On TV.
