The Top Ten

Adventure Time
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 of it.
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.
[Newest]Marcy is the loveliest vampire ever and my heart floats for her

2Regular Show
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
[Newest]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.
[Newest]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.

4Johnny Test
I think the should bring back dragon ball z in the votes
Should bring back DBZ. it was better
Love this show! Funny, creative with amazing inventions!

5Tom and Jerry Tales
Tom and Jerry is the best because it was from old days and its a classic cartoon
This show is funny for everyone
Great animation, great storylines, great idea, what could go wrong?
[Newest]Very funny show. The way that tom run after jerry is very funny.

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!
[Newest]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
[Newest]It's an amazing show

8Teen Titans GO!
This is awesome show. I'm glad they made this I was so sad when they canceled teen titans. Love the jokes and short stories but I am hoping that beast boy gets with raven <3!
Awesome it should be number 1!
I really miss the original teen titans they are the only dc heroes I like.
[Newest]The prequel is better

9The Looney Tunes Show
Really boring and stupid

10Total Drama Island
Total Drama Island is a very good classic cartoon. It, and it's other seasons are awesome!

The Contenders

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.
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.
This show is so cute! 1! Especially Chowder! Radda radda

12Young Justice
The show shouldn't be cancel like this. It should go on till the end for all the fans
Please bring back Young Justice, it's the best show I've ever watched
The cancellation of this show broke my heart

13Misadventures of Flapjack
I love the show it brings back memorys
Very funny and funny!
I think flapjak is a very nice show I love it so so so much

14Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated
This is the best show.
The story is just awesome
The fun never gets old. Scooby-Doo is timeless!

15Star 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.
Great show! Truly amazing
Best star wars cartoon ever

16Steven Universe
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!

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!
This is the best cartoon ever. It relates to everyday things like lose your diary or
Its worth watching
I promise

18Danny 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.
This was on Nickelodeon.


I like bacon. I like the adventure in it's like do they die or do they live kind of show! :-)! Popcorn
I like this show and I can't wait for the new season
It is so underrated. It deserves to be in the top 5.

20Total Drama Action

21Generator Rex
It's WAY better than those same ol Ben 10 shows.
This is kind of the best.

Pokemon is interesting cartoon there are many strange and cute pokemons
Oh my! Why is Pokemon so low? It was the best, I'll admit now it's not the same, I mean what happened to Brock, ash and misty? And 151 Pokemon? Still it was a very good show.. Originally.
It should be 1st ranked shows

23Sym-Bionic Titan
It would be nice if this show last longer than 20 episodes. Just look how long Teen Titans made their episodes.


25Family Guy
Very funny and lots of adult humor

26Ben 10: Omniverse
It is a fun cartoon with ben tennyson and his awesome aliens
It is such a very amazing
It is the best cartoon ever I watched

27Green Lantern: The Animated Series
I miss this show so much
This show is awesome
This show is the best

28Oggy and the Cockroaches

This show is really good! Except it was aired in 2002-2004

Naruto has been one of my favorite shows because the story was properly set and gives people that emotional feel. Adventure time is just a bunch of random events that have no plot and absolutely not any complexity. Shows like Naruto help children find their way to proper adulthood, but Adventure time for some might just encourage others to do stupid things in public and disrespect others.
Naruto is one of my show that I like from the start he never gave up on his friend sasuke and he has one dream to be come the great hokage that why it should be on top and not adventure time
Naruto is the best show that people see it's better then adventure time because naruto save the world
[Newest]The best anime series ever

31Beyblade: Metal Fury
It is a great show
This show is so awesome tithi is the best chareter and his bey questqutil too they're so awesome awesome!

Its the best show ever. From the very starting til end I have watched all of its episodes & I know that it will give a strong competition to other action & fighting cartoons.

33The Problem Solverz
I really like the Paper Rad artwork and animation.

34One Piece
Its all about circous food which telecast in shahara T.V. in india

35Dragons: Riders of Berk
This is the most awesome cartoon of all time
You can watch them on
This should be at the top because it is so awesome and funny!


They are so cool thell be aired on 10 sep

36Total Drama Revenge of the Island


38Total Drama All-Stars
I only watch it to see Scott... Too bad he got eliminated. Anyways, good show.

It was funny, but it did get a bit old. At the same time, I want it back.
Is a grat show, and very funny
It rocks an awesome show

40Incredible Crew
Incredible crew is on the best because it is funny and the girl eats paper

41Legends of Chima
Maybe if some of you guys dropped the idea of LoC being a Thundercats ripoff you would see the series qualities. The proof that graphics aren't that much if you have a nice story and environment.
MY friend was obsessed with it before he moved to Michigan..."sniffle"
