The Top TenXW

1Ed, Edd n Eddy

This show... It's my childhood. When I was little, the only show that I can remember consistently watching was this. It made fantastic points on adolescent life and related to me in ways that most cartoons simply couldn't. I'll admit that I cried after the final episode rolled its credits, but they were happy man tears and I proudly put this show up with the best of them.

I think ending it was a good choice because it would have taken the SpongeBob path. - Skullkid755

I love Cartoon Network a lot and there's only a few shows these days that I consider to be good on it but if there was one show that topped all of them from the start, it was no doubt Ed Edd n Eddy. This show was my childhood and I still continue to watch it because its still funny to us and I feel like it was just as much for kids as it was to teens and young adults.

The most funny show ever. The Plank is really best friend of johnny. The devotion towards money of Eddy is really powerful that make show ever lasting comedy. The Kevin is perfect rival. The show that really take me back to my innocent childhood. Even today this show if my most likely show if Cartoon Network. - jigar.myself

Ed, edd, and eddy was the best show on Cartoon Network

2Teen Titans

Oh my gosh I can't believe that this wasn't first. Or even in the top ten. This show is so unique: it made me rofl more times than I can count, but at the same time it has serious storylines, deep character exploration, and a level of maturity that kid-friendly shows rarely have. It deals with mature themes like loss, revenge, betrayal, and many others, and if you squint you will see parallels of subjects like drug use and racism. It is just such a good show, and the five main characters are all so completely different yet come together for a cause. There's something in this cartoon for everyone.

this show was goofy but funny and had some really good serious episode too

This show is AMAZING! It had great characters, excellent action scenes, and let's not forget to mention that it's just downright hilarious!

It should be #3 just because the animation is gorgeous and # negative three because of the amazing action

3Courage the Cowardly Dog

This show is awesome, Courage has all these dramatic ways getting scared. The story is not bad at all either. It's hilarious!

This show actually has a heart! People say it's scary, but some of the episodes are very emotional and some can be humorous as well!

Courage the Cowardly Dog show has the most subtle humor and irony of all cartoons out there. Wonderful plot, music and graphics!

This is the worst show ever!

4Regular Show

Regular Show is full of both comedy and adventure/action! Even the name of the show is funny! Regular Show: It's Anything But... Mordecai and Rigby are hilarious! I've seen every episode so far! My favorite episode so far is season 2 episode 1 - Ello Gov'nor. Great work! Keep it up!

This show came out of nowhere and destroyed what I thought was possible with cartoons. Besides Adventure Time and Phineas and Ferb, all the good cartoons were from the nineties. Then Regular Show went beyond the nineties mold of greatness to prove not only that animation was still alive, but it is still improving. The idea of the main characters of a cartoon as boring, lazy, 20-something-year-old roommates at a dead end job as park custodians is the most creative and simple working concept for a cartoon. There is no funnier 15 minutes of television than "Caffeinated Concert" except maybe "This Is My Jam" - mikeford

I was born in 2001, where I grew up watching shows like Dexter's Laboratory, Ed, Edd and Eddy, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Codename: Kids Next Door, The Power Puff Girls, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy; the CLASSICS. I loved them. KND was just awesome with blender machine guns, Battle-Ready Armor (B.R. A) and a HUGE treehouse. Dexter's Lab had the brains and cool tech that fascinated me back then and the evil scientist accent even though he's from an American family. Courage with aliens, Muriel and that creaky old windmill. Like I said. Classics. Then they all stopped. 2009. 2010. Everything went downhill, but it was simply the slow transition between eras. Adventure Time popped up. Loved it. The Amazing World of Gumball. Hilarious! But the truth is, I never watched Regular Show until one late night when it was on. Then I didn't get what the heck was meant to be happening. Some lollipop guy with a huge head got mistaken for a professional wrestler, and a bird and raccoon helped ...more

This show is obviously going to be number 4 and even though mordecai and rigby are sometimes retards the show really retarded

5Adventure Time

This shows sucks ball enough said

Shut up! I love this show you troll! I know your kind! You people stay in your moms basement all nice and cozy all day, righting mean comments ether because you don't have the guts to say it to my face or because your jealous that others people's lives are better!

Super Mario bros. And legend of Zelda is better and original than adventure time. Adventure time sucks forever.

Super Mario Bros and Legend of Zelda Have Nothing to do With Adventure Time, so shut up, Hater.

This show is really awful to watch. I give it 0/100

You are awful to look. You suck and you should shut up your nonsense mouth.

I will admit this show had a few good episodes but there are other shows more deserving of this spot

6Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends

This is one of the best story lines I've seen it's so hilarious. The show is really random and interesting.

This is the most awesome show that has ever graced this Earth. The most amazing humor, awesome characters, and the best art work ever. I love this show

Very weird but very entertaining group of characters. Each characters personality oddly fits well with the whole show.

It is awesome

7Codename: Kids Next Door

I can't think of any other show that is 100000% better as an adult.

The show is fueled by a child's perspective and understanding of the world, and it is exaggerated into a CSI world. It's a secret organization of Kids fighting adult tyranny.

Think of it as a G-rated animated version of Lord of the Flies but it's not a sausage fest, and there is slightly less killing.

The show had very memorable and likable characters, multiple plot twists, and best of all it was funny. Even as an adult it is genuinely, unironically funny.

"What's a Bra"
"And What's she TRAINING for"

It brings you back to those good old days of being an innocent kid, and as an adult you can really appreciate the satire and allegories in the show.

The series finale is by far the best series finale of any show on CN. It is surprisingly sophisticated for something that came out of Cartoon Network. While it's not the most satisfying, at the same time that's kind of what makes ...more

This show was practically my whole childhood.
KND had an amazing plot, great characters, and gave kids an amazing imagination! The episodes were amazing and gripping, once you started you can't stop. The ending was probably the best finale ever, and I hope they can restart with new episodes, maybe from the children of the original characters and their adventures!
The ideas for the weapons are amazing, like turning a simple blender into a machine gun! Everything a kid could ever dream of folds out before your eyes, even if your older this show takes you back to that time you spied on your parents and sprayed your sibling with a water gun!

The show deserves a spot because it was so cool and creative of how they used simple things like candy and blow-dryers as weapons and the ideas they had were so unique

How the hell is this on here?! - mayamanga

8The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy

I still can't believe that people hate this show. I mean, this is nearly the Cartoon Network version of Invader ZIM (ironically, the voice of Billy was also the voice of ZIM)! Of course, that's not because it has a similar plot line, but because it has dark humor. It's funny for both kids and adults. Also, Grim teaches us that even if your friends use you, don't listen to them if they are mean, and make the best of friendship. It's too bad that this show was cancelled.

The was so morbid at times but still it was so funny it was like the first cartoon at the time that took slapstick comedy to a whole new level

I wish it would play more often, it's funny and awesome at the same time, I really do miss watching it laugh out loud

I agree with the person below. It was the Invader ZIM of Cartoon Network! (Although it was a little more comedy-driven than Invader ZIM was).

9Dexter's Laboratory

This show was plain amazing because it was so simple at times but still so funny how didi wrecks everything some point in the show and how dexter flips out it was plain comedy.

Alright. I just want to know why the hell this isn't number one. I mean I live E but not as much as this. This is just classic. Way better than most of the Overrated mediocre stuff in front of this. Pretty much all of them except E and Tom and Kerry and maybe fosters

Every younger brother knows why this show is so awesome!

As much as I love Ed, Edd, n' Eddy, I also Dexter's Laboratory. Forget the overrated mediocre stuff on CN right now such as Adventure Time and Regular Show, Dexter's Lab rules!

10The Power Puff Girls

The Powerpuff Girls is probably the best cartoon network show ever made. There's funny characters, even villains. The only thing that I remembered from my childhood is I used to watch The Powerpuff Girls everday.

This is the best cartoon it has little super heroines fighting bad guys and saving their time and going through 5 year old stuff their are a lot of positive role models like Blossom Bubbles Buttercup

Best show in the whole wide world. Who thinks they should make a spin off called The Rowdyruff Boys Show? That would be awesome. We would get to see what the boys are doing at home or what their up to, planning trouble, or running into some fast food places or cool game stores, or the boys going to the beach. They could make an episode where they meet the ppg again and be friends but then they turn into enemies again with an epic battle. Please make that spin off! That would be a dream and the best spin off ever.

Love it as well

The Newcomers

?The Simpsons

Is the person who put this on here stupid or something? I love The Simpsons. It's an awesome show. But it airs on FOX. IT'S BEEN AIRING ON FOX FOR THE PAST 27 YEARS!

The Simpsons rock no other shows can top this Fox's number one show

The Simpsons rock no other shows can top this

This isn't on Cartoon Network

The Contenders

11Looney Tunes

Looney Tunes are the greatest cartoons on the planet. They are way above anything else on this list. With classic characters, admit it you can name most characters and the characters are the best Cartoon characters in the world.

This list is WRONG! Regular Show, Ed Edd and Eddy are mindless enough that I could make it on my own and it would be just as good. The new looney tunes, the Looney Tunes Show, Is very funny. Especially when Daffy does a "Daffy Move" (Something stupid).

The Looney Tunes Show is total crap, it hardly has the slapstick moves that the original classic has and it's just like the new Family Guy, it sucks, Looney Tunes got ruined. - nelsonerica

The looney tunes is the most hilarious show ever the funniest for me is porky the best episode was when the African sand spider and when it went on porky pigs face an the other characters daffy, bugs, lola, yosemite sam and loads more best show in a million years better than amazing world of gumball by far! Go looney tunes yeah!

Lil bit I like it

12The Amazing World of Gumball

Yeah, this show is awesome! I like the part when miss simian and principal brown jumped off the window, it is one of the best cartoons ever made! A T-rex as the school bully, more awesome! One of the funniest parts is when Gumballs brain beats the hell out of Principal Brown! This show is so amazing that it should have its own movie and special eps.

The show is probably one of the best animated shows ever in Cartoon Network history. Story wise it's a hilarious sitcom. I'm surprised it's so low on the list, its well in the Top 10. The characters are funny, the music is epic, and the only problem is that its episodes are way too short.

I LOVE THIS SHOW SO MUCH! How could anyone hate this show. It's totally amazing. I watch it every time it comes on T.V..

I love this show so much! I watch it everyday after school. My one friend said it's a boy's show, but on Cartoon Network when is it 'just a boy's show'?

13Tom & Jerry

I have watched almost all the programs in cartoon network and I think tom and jerry is the only one which is worth being in the first place...
It is because it is the only program that I watch even now (my present age is 18)... It is always new to me eventhough I have seen all the episodes like a 100 times..
It is the only program that is still being casted in CN...

I love this show it is really funny even it is an old show

I have watched Tom and Jerry ever since I was a little kid. I'm 13 and I still love Tom and Jerry. It was one of the best shows that Cartoon Network ever made besides Samurai Jack, The Amazing World of Gumball, Teen Titans, and more. It was great seeing a smart mouse beating up a not so bright cat. AHH! Those were the Days!

Why is this show just 13 it has to be 2nd behind Tom and Jerry Tales

14Johnny Bravo

Please put johnny bravo on the top ten it's better than all of them

What?! Johnny Bravo is legendary!

Definitely one of the best cartoons that was ever aired. It's a shame the channel formerly known as CartoonNetwork has stepped down to low quality cartoons such as Adventure Time and Regular Show. I guess animators and storywritersjust aren't what they used to be. Johnny Bravo should be in the top ten.

This show is three of my sister's, two of my older brother's, and my childhood. It was my favorite when I was 5 or 6.

15Pokemon

ALL THOSE WHO SEE THIS, THIS IS TRUE STUFF. I used to watch pokemon and I kept watching until black and white. The best to me was either battle frontier or galactic battles. All the pokemons were great until black and white. I think the creators are running out of ideas and that's when your suppose to end the show. Its had a good run for about 14 years! That's enough.
Like I was saying, black and white is awful and I have been watching pokemon since the beginning so I would know. The new characters are really stupid but. One because iris always calls ash a little kid and she is very irritating and two because cilan is always going on about how everything works out to be a perfect "recipe" and THEY ABSOLUTELY DO NOT WANT ASH TO WIN A POKEMON LEAGUE. With all the great pokemon he has he should be sweepinng the competition like is nothing.
I heard there is a new pokemon coming and I've seen it. It seems really stupid as pokemon keeps getting worse

I loved every episode in every season in Pokemon's history in anime...
I think best wishes generation is generally improving the show's quality (i think even better that the unique first seasons...
Pokemon forever!

I started watching this summer and since then I haven't missed an episode of the series xy I really like how clement is an inventor but every single invention he makes fails horribly. I also think team rocket should NOT try to steal pikachu even though it is hilarious how it fails every time. Easily the best Cartoon Network channel show.

"Pokemon is a good show". I wonder when they are going to get season 19 in...

16Steven Universe

First of all, it has Rebecca Sugar. She is most famous for writing Marceline's songs from Adventure Time. This automatically makes it cool. Second of all, this cartoon easily made up for that piece of trash, Uncle Grandpa. Not to mention that, so far, it takes on an interesting style of animation, amazing music, and wonderful humor. In my opinion, this can be remembered along with Regular Show and Adventure Time as one of the greatest cartoons from this era.

Steven universe is awesome it the only thing I can talk and think about. Now I feel like it's my entire existence. I would die with out Steven universe. I can't sleep without watching a new episode. The songs are beautiful, I have them all in my play list. Especially Stronger than you I literally played it 3 hours in a row and still love it. If I we the Judge of Cartoon Networks awards I would give them all to Rebecca Sugar and her Crewniverse. I would give all 6 awards for: beautiful songs, cute cartoon, best stories, memorable story boards, organized crew, and lovely voices. I watched all the episodes. I even was Sardonyx for Halloween. When ever I watch Steven Universe I would never blink. Season 1 was pretty AWESOME and season 2 was the BOMB. I have the 2015 Steven Universe Guide book. and now I'm getting all the volumes for the comics. Every time I hear their loving voices they brighten my day. I have Steven Universe all over my I pad, my room, and my life. My friend would come ...more

I swear all the commercials on Cartoon Network makes all their shows look retarded, and when I saw the commercial of this show I was like another stupid show like a adventure time that always talks about hams and fat baskets, but when I saw the two episodes the return and jail break while my sister was watching it I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. I mean the theme song itself lured me in it's so good and all the songs that are sung by the gems and Steven are good and their voices are amazing. Though at times this show can be a comedy it can also be an action show and possibly a drama and has romance. Also this show has so many mysteries whenever you know about the world of the gems you get more questions that you need to watch more episodes to find the answers. The animation and the voice acting and the fight scences are also amazing. We might have stupid shows now on the CW like Clarence and Uncle Grandpa but just remember that there is also Steven Universe and that show is ...more

Steven universe is best show

17Samurai Jack

Yeah, Cartoon Network really screwed this show in 2004, Seriously, How did this show get screwed so bad? It is one of Genndy's best cartoon ever made, but what I think has to be the best performance goes to Phil LaMarr. So please Cartoon Network, bring this show back, and gives this show a real run, Something that The Simpsons didn't deserve. I'm looking for Cartoon Network's apologize through.

Best Cartoon Network show ever. I don't really like Adventure time or
Regular show that much. The only Cartoon Network shows I like are the
Old ones like Powerpuff Girls, Ben 10, and Samurai Jack, and all the old
Ones. The new ones are not really good, in my suggestion.

Samurai Jack was a very underrated show, and you should watch it.

This was literally my childhood go Jack 2016

18Total Drama Island

I love this show. It deserves a higher ranking. One of the best shows ever hands down!

We don't often get a show that pushes boundaries that the censors put in place and makes a show that just stands out, Sure it isn't for everyone but it's unique and makes people want to tune in every week just to cheer for their favorite character in hopes that they win the million. Even at its worst Total Drama Island and its sequels has kept us coming back for more. I love this show. It deserves a higher ranking. One of the best shows ever hands down!

This is an AWESOME show! Every character is unique and funny, and all of the plots are cool too. Total Drama World Tour is cool too.

This show is just amazing showing Kids how Survivor (Amazing Show) works.

19Dragon Ball Z

This is the best cartoon in the UNIVERSE. It Is very Fantasy Story. My Favorite Character Is Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Goten.

Best. Anime. Ever. Enough said! Vegeta is the best character on the show. Love all the action and storylines!

Dragon ball z is the best anime I have ever seen in my life, and hilarious moments. Most of all my favorite characters are vegeta, and Goku

Dragon Ball Z... Goku is the best

20Chowder

Way better and had actual comedy, not just idiots doing stupid stuff. (I'm talking to you all things in top ten and adventure time. ) this had stuff that even adults laugh at

It's actually really creative and hilarious! I can't see why people hate it so much! It also has the voice of Joe DiMaggio (who makes the voice of Jake the Dog and The robot from Futurama) and Tara strong (Who voices Twilight Sparkle and Raven from MLP and Teen Titans) Its really good and I love it. - LpsDisneyTmntFreak

I like the majority of the content in this show, but the only thing I dislike about Chowder is ONE. WRETCHED. FACE.

Chowder is really funny! I remember watching this when I was younger, I'm so thankful that they're still playing it! - funnyuser
