Best Cartoon Network Shows of 2013

The Top TenXW

1Adventure TimeAdventure Time is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network.

Looking at all the lists Adventure time is pretty controversial and everyone's opinion varies. This show was reccomended to me by a friend and I was skeptical watching the first few episodes but there are good episodes sprinkled around. The thing I really like is the hidden messages behind some episodes and how even kids will enjoy it regardless of it's "deep" morals. My favorites are probably the episodes that involve Marceline's past but that's just because they decide to go deeper into her history more than everyone else (I don't know why we can't learn more about the other characters though). Best part is that the show (at least tries to) avoid plot holes. The recent episodes make references to past episodes. Some things we question get answered on and there's even foreshadowing (wow! ). But sticking with it's episodic nature Adventure Time isn't confusing if you decide to skip some episodes or watch only one. It's not too confusing and sometimes you can just watch it for the heck ...more

Adventure time is a very deep, emotional, and funny cartoon. It has many well developed characters and no matter what age you are there is always a story you can relate and connect to. There is no repeating storyline, and I really appriciate how the story developes after each episode, instead of restarting. There are so many good points to this series, from the action, to the romance, and on top of that all the characters mysterious pasts, including the mushroom war. I can't stress the genius of this series enough, it's my favorite show of all time, and I can't wait to see more!

I am very touched by the episode "Simon and Marcy. " This episode is emotionally powerful and I strongly recommend all Adventure time fans to watch it. I also hope that the Ice King would remember his past life as Simon Petrikov and "little Marcy"
I love the show as it is very touching and emotional, it's arguably the best kids show ever made. Adventure time has a rather dark history behind the land of Ooo, which leaves the audience in suspense as the mystery slowly unfolds.

Marcy is the loveliest vampire ever and my heart floats for her

2Regular ShowRegular Show is an American animated television series created by J. G. Quintel for Cartoon Network that premiered on September 6, 2010. The series revolves around the lives of two friends, a blue jay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby—both employed as groundskeepers at a local park.

Show is full of excitement and is the best show hands down since the Grimm Adventures of Billy and Mandy. Unfortunately it is belittled by the fact it reaches to a slightly older audience on a mainly 7-12 year crowd.

Regular show should be first and adventure time 2

Top comedy quartz parchment shears anyone

Regular show is 500x better than adventure time

3Amazing World of Gumball

This is one of the shows I really love of all time. It's very attracting and viewers will love it. The show is a hilarious and entertaining type. All the characters in this show are funny so I like them all. I really like how they mix the realistic graphics from the animation graphics.

The Amazing World of Gumball is a funny, crazy, and ultimately entertaining show. Its colorful cast is hilariously relatable to any person who gets in its path. Even people like my parents find it funny.

Some of the characters are just odd.

I LOVE THIS SHOW SO MUCH! I wish The Amazing World Of Gumball has a crossover with Regular Show and Adventure Time. Because Darwin would make a perfect match with Jake and Rigby. - Finn-Mordecai-Gumball

6Total Drama World Tour

I've watched this show since the beginning! I love all of characters and stuff about them! I recommend this show to anyone who cares to take the time to watch it. And I realize that it not for everyone, but it's awesome. I also know all of the songs from season 3 (the musical season. People should watch Total Drama Island, Total Drama Action, Total Drama Revenge of The Island, and the new season premiering in September 2013 Total Drama All-Stars!

Easily one of the best things to come out of Cartoon Network in the past years while the new selection is just awful. Sure, it's the same total drama thing all over again, but it's a system that works and will always be enjoyable

Yeah... Probably this season is not as good as the first one, but is still amazing :D, with comedy, romance, action and, of course, DRAMAA!

This show be cray

7Dragon Ball Z

I'm probably gonna get flamed for this but... Dragonball Z is awesome. I agree this should be number 1 based on this list. However it's not the best anime out there. I'm tired of people always saying that DBZ is the best anime ever. True it was great for its time. But there is no best anime ever. Every anime is unique in it's own special way. Those who say DBZ is the best anime ever obviously haven't watched a lot of anime. I'm sorry for what I said. But I am kinda tired of everyone saying DBZ is the best, and ignoring every other anime out there.

This should be number 1! What are you idiots thinking by putting a dumb show like adventure time up there

You are total idiots. Dragon Ball Z is the best anime I've ever seen or even the best anime in history of man kind. How the hell this show isn't number 1

It's an amazing show

8Teen Titans GO!Teen Titans Go! is an American animated television series based on the DC Comics fictional superhero team, the Teen Titans.

Anyone who likes this just doesn't have a good taste in shows - yuma9009

This was my only reason to live, besides Phineas and Ferb, Arthur, and Tara Strong.

This show sucks. - AnonymousChick

The Contenders

11ChowderChowder is an American animated television series created by C.H. Greenblatt for Cartoon Network. The series follows an aspiring young child named Chowder and his day-to-day adventures as an apprentice in Chef Mung Daal's catering company.

Why is this on ten and not 9 places in front? It was creative at how they used textures behind the background and their clothes actually just an emptiness. Also, I just loved how their jokes worked. I'm watching the whole show on netflix.

I love it super duper much. I wish it would return on June 1st. A new season premeire, so. It'll be super exciting. I wouldn't be able to contain myself. Super great. Can you wait until then? Or maybe Boomerang will get a place for "Chowder". I'll tell Mr. Greenblatt (the creator of "Chowder") to bring it back to Cartoon Network.

13Family GuyFamily Guy is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Griffins, a family consisting of parents Peter (Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Idiotic Son), and Stewie more.

Very funny and lots of adult humor

This show airs on fox and adult swim and is rated T.V.-14 so this really isn't a Cartoon Network show for ya

14Steven UniverseSteven Universe is an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network.

Why isint this number one next to Gumball? This is a amazing show...
Here's a short story... At first, I thought this show was gonna be complete crap, I saw the pilot, then didn't like it, and I saw the advertisement on T.V. and I thought it was STUPID. But then, over the eatser holiday this year, I saw a couple post on Tumblr about Steven Universe so I decided to watch one episode. The I was like "Oh wow, this show is pretty good. Its also very funny! " So then, I decided to watch another episode... Then another, then another. Then I finally became obsessed with Steven Universe. And hell yeah. Hands down. PEARL is my ultimate FAVORITE. I love Pearl's voice. I'm IN LOVE with Garnet's accent. I love Amethyst's personality and I love how Steven is so caring. I love the animation, the characters, the plot... I absolutely love everything about this show!

This is one of the only good shows that isn't complete and random crap like uncle grandpa or regular show. It actually has an intense plot and amazing character development. It should be WAY higher up the list, and if you haven't watched Steven universe yet, I suggest you watch an episode (I recommend some episodes AFTER episode 30, that when things start getting intense and so the show won't look like crap)

This should trade this with Johnny Test. Johnny Test sucks. Steven Universe rocks!

Teen Titans Go is infinity times better

15Danny Phantom

Who doesn't remember the awesome kid who transform into a ghost and uses a thermos to capture them!

Dude... this is a Nickelodeon show... this list is for Cartoon Network SHOWS ONLY! I love Danny Phantom too, but this should not be on the list since it is not a CN show.

16Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Star Wars the Clone wars and The legend of Korra has been the only cartoons worth watching now a days that have a good story behind them. His should be number one.

Total Drama Island is a very good classic cartoon. It, and it's other seasons are awesome!


This is the best cartoon ever. It relates to everyday things like lose your diary or

This was such a funny show for me! I LOVED Jude and I feel like it is unfair how everyone always judged this show before even watching it, so before you dis, watch!

The story is just awesome

The fun never gets old. Scooby-Doo is timeless!

20PokemonPokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.
