10 Best Kids Shows

Celestius

The Top TenXW

1Spongebob SquarepantsSpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. Spongebob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 17 years, and is beginning its 10th season.

SpongeBob seasons 1-4 are really great and yea the whole family can watch. But after season four don't even watch it those seasons shouldn't even count. In my opinion SpongeBob only ran for four seasons. Counting seasons 1-4 I would put it at three or four on my personal list behind avatar the last airbender and scooby doo and depending on the day tom and jerry. It's a show that I really really enjoyed as a kid and it's really funny and entertaining. If I had to give a negative of it is that it's a better generic kids show. What I mean by that is the jokes are almost always better than other kids shows a lot of the episodes are incredibly well written and creative. However, think of the template kids show and you are getting a much higher quality version of it. It's like the Big Bang theory the show is great but it's a template sitcom not widely different in structure and often content than how I met your mother, 2.5 men, friends, etc. avatar is different and scooby doo/ tom and Jerry ...more

Only watch seasons 1-4 plus the first (key-word: FIRST) movie. Everything after that is rubbish.

This should number one for so many more reasons:
1. It's been on longer than fairly oddparents and it's still going on with new episodes still coming.
2. The entire family can watch not just the kids.
3. It's way funnier than fairly oddparents

THIS IS TERRIBLE. The first seasons were great but now the creators ran out of ideas and it totally sucks now. This really should be lower down

2Gravity FallsGravity Falls is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation that first aired on Disney Channel, and then on Disney XD from June 15, 2012 to February 15, 2016. The series follows the adventures of Dipper Pines and his twin sister Mabel in the fictional town of Gravity ...read more.

This is an excellent show withe great humor, animation, music, and atmosphere. I really feel like I'm in a small town in Organ! The characters are excellent, mainly the 2 main characters. Despite being pre-teens, they act quite childish and friendly, which isn't a bad thing. Because of they're younger nature, they are more accepting, positive, and forgiving, not like realistic pre-teens who are grouchy, rude, and disrespectful, and besides, those traits belong to other characters, so many, I won't even mention their names. While Dipper and Mabel are already great (Mabel is the most relatable character to me from a T.V. show or movie since Luna Lovegood), Wendy takes the cake as the BEST character. Not only is she just as kind hearted and fun-loving as Dipper and Mabel, but she's 3 years their senior. Wendy is the prime example of what a teenager SHOULD be, but isn't: not embarrassed by hanging out with those younger than her, kind, fun-loving, goofy-yet-mature, hates drama, has a good ...more

This is one of my favorite shows of all time. For a Disney show, it has very memorable characters and amazing plot line. Vote for this if you have any taste in what you watch. - bishop.moore07

This show is way better than that idiot cartoon known as "Phineas and Ferb"! I love Gravity Falls, and a lot of people do.

This is life so it is canceled

3Regular 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.

Okay, I agree with the top ten, but that's pretty much it. Why is Jessie on here and above shows like Danny Phantom? Also, to the guy who made this list, you are missing one show that should be in the top ten, and that's the show that got screwed by its channel, Nickelodeon. That show is "Invader Zim", an awesome show that sadly only had one and a half seasons on Nick. For those who haven't seen it, it is kind of like the dark/insane version of Gravity Falls. it's awesome. For those who agree with me and have seen the show, GO HOME AND SHAVE YOUR GIANT HEAD OF SMELL WITH YOUR BAD SELF!

Everything above this is pretty much junk. I honestly don't know why I like this show so much but I think it has something to do with the characters. This should be in the top ten at least. I could watch this for hours.

Not appropriate for kids, there is gross humor, potty language & violence.

It went downhill since the movie for me honestly, it's not that they don't do a lot of guns and stuff anymore, but because of the same thing over and over again, and the movie didn't go well because it didn't feel like "RG The Movie" All it was is just time traveling to stop a time nado instead of an extended moment of some time at the park or something. I only wish that someday instead of Mordecai and Rigby breaking stuff and risking their lives to fix and/or replace it, they should at least make something that would motivate the duo at least. Or change their characters and turn out to be good people or something.

I don't like this show cause it makes no sense

4The Fairly OddParents

The Fairly OddParents was one of the best cartoons good until 2009, when Cosmo gave birth to Poof, a baby fairy, after that, there weren't enough ideas from the writers to make much more good episodes, and then it went down the bin.

I can't believe this show is lower then good luck charlie it makes me so angry to see this show is lower then it needs to be like the the heck FOP needs to be higher

What I hate baby looney tunes they work like school its educational and not looney but this its so good I hope there will be more than only 8 seasons and more characters - simpsondude

Great until sparky the talking dog.

5Adventure TimeAdventure Time is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network. The series follows the adventures of a boy named Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio)—a dog with the magical power to change shape ...read more.

Cool characters, interesting plot lines, and it's a fun show for kids and adults. What I really like about this show is that the main aspect is Finn and Jake's cool adventures, but the show doesn't always just focus on those characters. Almost every character has a backstory. Finn and Jake, Simon and Marceline, even root beer guy! The Fionna and Cake episodes are great, and the stakes series as well. Adventure time is a show for everybody. There are funny episodes, sad episodes, episodes that expand the plot line, etc. I guess what I'm just trying to say is that ADVENTURE TIME ROCKS!

Oh little lemon hope throw me a lemon rope

Best why is this not in top three!

I think it's alright

6Phineas and FerbPhineas and Ferb is an American animated comedy-musical television series. Originally broadcast as a one-episode preview on August 17, 2007 and again previewed on September 28, 2007, the series officially premiered on February 1, 2008 and ended on June 12, 2015 on Disney Channel, and follows Phineas ...read more.

This deserves to be in the top 3! While SpongeBob and Regular Show are mindless cartoons without meaning, Phineas & Ferb is a great example of what every show should be. It has amazing music, great animation, and the most wonderful characters I've ever seen. They don't make gags about being mean to each other, getting hurt, or even the lame bathroom humor. The jokes are actually HILARIOUS, if you ask me. Phineas is optimistic, cheerful, and tries his best to make sure everybody has a good time. He is a big part of sending good messages to kids about staying positive even when the going gets tough. People have said things about how the characters "break the law," but really they don't think they are doing anything wrong. Usually the adults providing materials to the children will ask if Phineas is too young to be doing what they are doing. Instead of lying, like most children do in T.V. shows, he outright states that yes, yes he is. In the very first episode, there is a whole ...more

This shouldn't EVER be on this list, it's actually one of the Top 25 WORST kids shows of ALL TIME, The plot is overly repetitive, it's the same thing in EVERY SINGLE EPISODE! Phineas & Ferb invent dangerous things at young ages, which is against the law and dangerous, they could get into trouble with the law and even get hurt, it can make kids do that, which could get them into trouble and hurt themselves, Candace keeps trying to bust them, which is a good thing because of what I said before, but she NEVER GETS WHAT SHE WANTS! The music is alright since it's a kids show and so is the animation, but EVERYTHING ELSE ABOUT IT IS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE! This show is one of those few that should have been cancelled a long time ago, because of those main reasons as it ran longer than any other show on
Disney Channel. - nelsonerico6

Every show has a plot which is a little repetitive just so the show can stay the same show each episode. It's not the exact same thing each episode.

It's a cartoon. Stop applying real life logic into a world with no laws or anything that the real world has. It's not illegal in their world. The kids are geniuses anyway.

Candace is part of the show. At least you like some plot of the show. She doesn't bust them because she's trying to keep them safe, but she's jealous of the boy's intelligence. - LemonComputer

I've noticed a lot of people hate this show. Well screw you haters! A lot of people say its just a bad taste in opinions, but they are just hating! If you hate this show then you don't have an imagination!

This is one of my favourite shows, so happy it's in the top 10 although it should take the place of SpongeBob or regular show cause this makes sense but those do not at all.

7The Amazing World of GumballThe Amazing World of Gumball is a British-American-Irish children's animated television series created by Ben Bocquelet for Cartoon Network.

I love this show! It's funny and I love all of the different creative characters! This show is awesome and should be in the top three! You have to watch it.

Coming from the opinion of an actual kid, I think this show is so awesome!

OK, this is not bad. its really funny, good for 8 year olds like me, and is cool! not the best, though. one episode is when they play a game and you pick a card, what the card says is what happens to you, for example, if my card said you grab a towel, I will randomly grab a towel.

Love this show

8Teen Titans Go!

WHY IS THIS ON HERE! The old Teen Titans were so so cool. I was raven for Halloween once. This show is making fun of the teen titans. This show is really stupid. It's all about laughing at dumb people, being dumb, and every other episode they get fat or something! This show IS NOT SO COOL. I only watch it when nothing else is on.

When is saw this I thought "oh yeah I knew the old TT was on here! " But no. All this show does is make great characters like Raven and others look like jerks! I don't even feel like they are fighting, if you watch the dodgeball episode then you see they don't even fight for the trophy (did I forget to mention they already had it? ). And going back to the good characters looking like douches thing, Raven and Starfire had to sit out because Raven was too ruff and Starfire was too dumb.

DEAR LORD! This show is horrible! Do not let your kids watch this atrocity. It teaches bad morals, the characters are utterly annoying, and none of the episodes are funny. The writing is lazy and redundant. The visuals are inferior. And the only people that root for this awful show must have not seen the true original teen titans. For those who have, do not watch this show. Please don't. It wastes time at best, and plagues the brain at worst.

I totes agree

9PokemonPokémon, 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.

Pokemon is like a bunch of other shows, it started out good, but then became plain boring.

Seasons 1-5 were the best! Creative characters, loads of adventures, and clean comedy. That's what made it so good.

Seasons 6-9 these seasons were amazing. Sure they can't top the original but I still like it because it kept the special feeling.

Seasons 10-13 the four seasons were pretty good but not down right cool. I was mostly interested by Ash's rivalry with Paul and the fact that Brock was still there.

Seasons 14-16 awful. The characters were unoriginal, the plot was simple, and the comedy was meh.

Seasons 17 and 18 I stopped watching it. These seasons made Pokemon really hard to watch, epsically if you're in poke shipping. Not only that, but the series became predictable after season 13. Not only that but Ash's new voice actress became annoying. The first one sounded really good and it made Ash sound like a boy. The new one just sounds like a little girl ...more

Pokemon is great and all but when they took out Brock I was mad I mean he was in the first season if they can take out Brock then they can Ash. Very disappointed at the people who made this decision. :(

Pokemon WAS a great show, until the new seasons, which had repetitive episodes and worse animation, making the series go downhill, it's nowhere near as good as it used to be, if you love Pokemon, only watch the classics and not the new ones.

The only thing I hate about pokemon is that Brock always run for the white girls

10Tom and JerryTom and Jerry is an American animated series of short films created in 1940, by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera.

Slapstick violence, it would never happen to your children so you don't need to worry about that. It's a show that is there to make you laugh.

I loved it when I was 3... And I still love it. The new episodes are horrible, with bad music, bad design, and a boring plot. Old episodes (found on boomerang) are so much better, so I'd only recommend the old ones.

This show is extremely funny I use to watch it when I was 6 and I still do.

I have and will always love this show.

11Good Luck Charlie

Good Luck Charlie should be where SpongeBob or Phineas and Ferb is. I really wish that show would end already.

This show wasn't like other Disney Channel shows. It actually taught kids about reality, wow, shocker. Definitely the best live action Disney show by far.

It's the only Disney Channel show where the teenagers are "funny stupid" and not "stupid stupid". The parents are actually there unlike all the other Disney Channel shows.

This show is so good, too bad it finished. It really deserves to be higher up.

13Avatar: The Last AirbenderAvatar: The Last Airbender is an American animated television series that aired for three seasons on Nickelodeon from 2005 to 2008. Avatar: The Last Airbender is set in an Asiatic-like world in which some people are able to manipulate the classical elements by use of psychokinetic variants of Chinese ...read more.

Sure, Fairly Odd Parents and Adventure time are good shows, but in comparison to Avatar The Last Airbender all other shows get blown out of the water. It had likable characters, an interesting plot, the fighting scenes were fantastic, it was amazing in every way. If you have not seen it, this show is an absolute MUST. Sure it might be for kids but I'm pretty sure I can watch this at 40 years old and still love it. This isn't the best kid show, this is one of the best shows period.

If we're judging these on quality, nothing comes close in both plot and production value. This show simply destroys most kids' shows and, in my opinion, is one of the best shows period, regardless of category.

Absolutely one of the greatest children's shows of all time. I would list off all the things it has but then this comment would be too long to read. Anyway this show is an absolutely must watch for anyone, your children or even yourself. No matter the age, this show will give you a run for your money because it is just so gosh darn amazing.

I hate this show

14My Little Pony: Friendship is MagicMy Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a children's animated television series that was produced by Hasbro Studios and DHX Media Vancouver. One of the things this show is known for, is it's Bronies, who are the grown men that like the show .

This show sucks. The Bronies are just creepy idiotic perverts who want to have sex with horses. This show sucks just like the animation and characters. I can't wait for this awful show to finally end so we don't have to hear "bronies for life" anymore. - mrcoolface

This show should get lower! Its not the best! - cosmo

This show is worshipped by the most retarded fanboys ever! Just look at the boys whining "This is the best show ever! " They are almost as stupid as Minecraft fanboys!

This show is so terrible, anytime I see it in feel to dig my eyes out and plug my ears, why is it so high?

This is my favorite show. This should really be #1. This is the best show ever. You guys are insane. This deserves to be first.

Worst show I've ever seen. The characters are annoying, and the only likable characters are the background characters. Nobody wanted to be an actor of liv so Maddie had to do both :P

16Teletubbies Teletubbies is a British pre-school children's television series created by Ragdoll Productions' Anne Wood CBE and Andrew Davenport, who wrote each of the show's 365 episodes .

Disney1994, you think the Teletubbies are cute, charming, friendly, and teach friendship? Sanjay and Craig is lame, but not as bad as this abomination called an "educational show".

And NO, the Teletubbies aren't cute, charming, and friendly, they are actually ugly, nasty, stupid, creepy, mind-numbing, hellspawning, grimacing, sadistic, DISGUSTING characters, and I didn't learn one single thing about friendship in this show. Go kill yourself if you are over the age of 6 and like this show.

Teletubbies, according to a CreepyPasta, is about the end of the world, and it got banned because it gave kids nightmares beyond nightmares (It even gave me nightmares! ), and the Teletubbies don't even look 1% cute. It's true. I hate this show so much, I'd rather watch Dora or Barney than watch this ever again.

And these Teletubbies are truly the hellspawn of preschool shows. The "educational content" in it was blasted into space many universes away, all ...more

What is Teletubbies even doing here this show is a burden on this planet... I hated it in my childhood...my brother though used to like it when he was 2 years old but after a few months he stopped watching it... thank God he did!

This show is actually quite creepy towards children. If you watch Teletubbies in black and white you'll see what I mean.

This gave me NIGHTMARES oh goodbye childhood.

Who ever likes this sucks, I am 8 years old, I should love this. it makes fun of SpongeBob! what idiots!

It was really funny! I liked "Flammable" and "Doctor Whose Line Is It Anyway". It ended too early! But maybe the writers ran out of ideas, and maybe it's a good thing that it ended. - Discord

People don't like this show because it parodied shows that they liked. That's stupid! That's the point of it! I didn't care when they poked fun at my favorite celebrities, I actually laughed along! People are too sensitive these days. Every word you say has to be so PC

Terrible show, should be lower down, cause it sucks

Blue's Clues is as cute as it can get. I liked the fact that the show merges animation with reality, had educational content and gave my six year old self bright artistic dreams.

I wonder why so many people hate Joe! While I did like Steve better, like most people, I also liked Joe

They replaced the main character with some fat a**. They didn't think I would notice! This is why I stopped watching you.

I used to really enjoy this when younger. - LemonComputer

19Sesame Street

I remember they had a segment in one episode called 'Preschool Musical', as opposed to 'High School Musical'. And the gang! From Big Bird & Snuffy being the stars of the show to Oscar's sarcasm about liking being sad and what have you, it's a fantastic show! You know what it used to be called? Television for Preschool Children'. - JayJayPlane

I'm 12 and I still laugh at this show! The puppet work is awesome, the characters are downright memorable, and the show itself is just plain genius! It's not as good today, but in it's early years, it was simply remarkable!

Best show ever. Teaches children gentleness, acceptance and kindness. Also encourage children to learn and love learning.

This should swap places with Arthur.

I am only 11, and I am STILL IN LOVE with this show. I mean, this show is my LIFE! In fact, I think I'm the biggest Thomas The Tank Engine And Friends fan ever! I watched every single season, and every single movie. No kidding! Ever since I was a kid I treated this show as if it was the only thing I will love. May Thomas The Tank Engine And Friends stay alive FOREVER!
Man, I don't care when people say I'm too old to watch this show. I mean, TOO OLD?!?! Dude! I'm only 11, and I'm STILL a kid! Yep, I'm a Thomas fan-girl! When I grow up and have kids, I'll totally make sure that Thomas The Tank Engine And Friends will be the FIRST show they'll ever watch! And if anyone's wondering, Thomas is my favourite engine, he's my Number 1and my crush!
I LOVE YOU THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE AND FRIENDS, YOU ARE MY NUMBER 1 SHOW, AND MY LIFE! MAY YOU STAY ALIVE FOREVER!

I love this show ever sense I was a little kid. I love to watch the episodes from the original series and I like how the episodes were recreating the books. I love the show and I will keep it with me for times to come. A good show for kids and if you can, buy the original episodes on DVD for your kid.

I love it! I am one of the biggest fans of Thomas and Friends. Everything associated with it! The characters, merchandise, episodes, everything! It's the best T.V. show in the world!

This show is very good. I watched it ever since I was 1 year old. I had a lot of Thomas Train Toys. Thomas, Percy, James, Edward, Gordon, Emily, Henry, Toby, Spencer, Murdoch, Salty, Flora, etc.
