Pretty much anything by 4Kids, but above all, the old dub for Sailor Moon is the worst. Not only to the voices not fit, but they take some pretty inappropriate liberties to make it more kid-friendly. The new dub fixes just about all of that.

It might not be the worst, but one I hate is High School DxD. Simply horrendous.

Voltron's voice work was fairly horrendous. I'm not overly critical of dubs and enjoyed the show as a kid, but I just can't watch it now.
Fortunately Netflix came to the rescue with a reboot with good voice acting.

The older dubs can be sort of hilarious with how bad they are. Stuff like Speed Racer or the black and white Astroboy.

British dubs of Urusei Yatsura and Rumik World movies like Fire Tripper. Most early dubs really were pretty horrible. 4Kids were not really bad due to dubbing it was that they butchered shows to make them more "kid friendly" even if it makes the shows no longer make sense.

My least favorite dub is from the Diamond & Pearl anime because the good VAs that should have voiced the characters were replaced by amateurs. Even Silent Mobius, Kaleido Star or the Read or Die TV anime had better acting than that.

The english dub of Revolution Girl Utena.

Even Crispin Freeman can't save a dub when the directing is garbage.

Nobody's mentioned Garzey's Wing yet? That's my vote.

I admit that I retain my old loathing for both versions of the old dub (DIC and Cloverway, not the current one, which I actually like).

I think I know exactly which one you want to mention, and we'd best not do that.

almost anything produced by 4kids

the Free! Eternal Summer dub. Funi, oh god, Funi, why? when the only fitting voice is Rei and the script is butchered beyond all comprehension with the random shoehorning of 'dude' and 'bro' at least ten times per episode to try and appeal to a male demographic, despite the damn show obviously being aimed at women, you dun know you fucked it up.

I actually have a soft spot for a few of the 4kids dubs in "so bad its funny" type of way.
For an actual bad dub I turn to Angel Beats, as I've been an anime fan since the turn of the century and yet it wasn't until I saw that poorly scripted, voice directed and edited mess that I finally found a dub I could not stand.
