|This page needs some cleaning up to meet Loathsome Characters Wiki's quality standards.|
The following reason has been specified: Needs more detail.
Angelina Ballerina is the titular character from the British children's book series. Sadly, she was horribly flanderized in the adaptation.
Why She's Such a Ballet Disaster
Note: This page will only talk about her flanderization in the original animated series and The Next Steps, since she was likable in the book series.
- To write down the first problem, her characterization in the animated adaptations has been flanderized from the books quite badly. In contrast to her original book counterpart who is sweet and cheerful who is very kind to her friends despite her being a whiny drama queen at times, here in the in the animated screen adaptations he acts rather rude, mean-spirited, nasty and horrible, especially if she's jealous. In fact, she is even more of a drama queen in this show.
- She had a big meltdown in some episodes, such as "Angelina's Baby Sister" and "The Ballet Dance".
- In "The Silver Locket", she goes into criminal mode and steals her mother's locket without asking, something which Angelina will never do anything nasty in the books.
- She's not good at looking after her cousin Henry or her baby sister Polly, especially since she loses Henry at the carnival in "Angelina at the Fair". She bullies them too.
- She can sometimes be a punching bag (even though she does deserve it), like when the Pinkpaw Twins make fun of her and Alice, when she and Alice realize that the tickets to the ballet dance are sold out in "The Ballet Dance", or when Angelina slips on the beads that fell off her necklace in the same episode.
- In Angelina Ballerina: The Next Steps, she becomes much blander and also becomes a huge Mary Sue and her fur changes from white to light pink.
- She is shown to be dumb at times and always makes wrong decisions. For example, she put food on the edge of the stacked books and made a big mess in "Miss Lilly Comes to Dinner".
- Like Caillou, she cries and screams over petty reasons.
- Her design is at least cute, despite it looking more mediocre in Angelina Ballerina: The Next Steps.
- She's much better-behaved in The Next Steps, despite becoming a Mary Sue.
- She was a far better and more tolerable character in the books than in the two TV shows.
- She is very good at ballet, tap dancing, jazz, classical, ethnic and rock-n-roll.
- She is likeable in some episodes, such as "The Anniversary Party" for example.
