10 Best Kids Shows


The Top TenXW

1Spongebob Squarepants

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

I've watched SpongeBob all my life and yeah seasons 5-9 are aren't very good but seasons 1-4 are AMAZING!

2Regular Show

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.

Why would kids watch this, it has drugs and it can influence kids to do that in their lifetime, which is horrible, the show is entertaining, but the drug content keeps it from being a kids show.

It's so good they made a movie

3Gravity Falls

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.

One of the best animated shows ever!

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

What a cool show

5Adventure Time

Oh little lemon hope throw me a lemon rope

Best why is this not in top three!

With epic characters, a nice atmosphere, a brilliant storyline, and being really stupid (don't worry that makes it so hilarious! ), AT needs to be number 2 or 3.

Why is this show even on here it's just bad in one word bad

6The Amazing World of Gumball

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

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.

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.

I loved gumball its one of my favorites of all time

7Teen 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 agree it's very bad

8Avatar: The Last Airbender

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.

Best show I have ever seen

9Phineas and Ferb

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

Nope, makes kids try to also build dumb stuff in there back yard, the people are creepy with there plain weird heads and hair, it is really about love, phineas has a crush on candace, that is all.

This is the best show ever, you can be 19 and love this show while you can't do that for the rest of them!

It's not the best show, it's one of the worst shows, it's plot is too repetitive, the kids break the rules by making inventions when they're too young, which can teach kids to do that, getting them into trouble and hurting themselves, Candace never gets what she's been wanting, it's just a stupid show that needs to get cancelled. - nelsonerico6

Really, why is this show on here? Phineas is a pervert and Ferb is an idiot. This needs to be out of this list

10Tom and Jerry

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.

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.

It's great. End is so emotional. Even my mom, whose not a big fan of Disney sitcom, would make popcorn and sit down with with me to watch it

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.

Also what with the little kid saying they are gonna spy on us

This show sucks, is a rip off of iCarly (a good show) and the humor is unfunny.

I love victorious because she has a beautiful, gentle voice

It was a good show until the violence in a few episodes, but it got cancelled. - nelsonerico6

Victorious is like the absolute BEST show EVER!

Best programme ever

14The Backyardigans

The above are all junk. These shows have REALLY good and sophisticated plots, and the music is so good that adults would want to listen to it if the lyrics were changed.

This show was my childhood! It taught me to say please and thank you and to share in a way with catchy music and fun characters! I recommend this show to parents with young kids!

Very imaginative and musical. This is a great show for kids because it explores your imagination, teaches you creativity.

How bad is this show? Count as high as you can. That's how bad it is to me! - FinnsWorld

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

This show is stupid because it makes parodies of other shows I like!

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

Haters gonna hate

16Blue's Clues

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

I love this show! I think most of the shows that are higher than this are useless. - FinnsWorld

Am I the only one who still watches this even though I'm not a kid anymore?

I liked Steve better, and I used to watch this in my childhood.

I like liv and Maddie and I think it should be number 1 because it is such a good show for kids

18Courage the Cowardly Dog

Courage in the middle of Chowder and MLP? No thanks. This show was and still is awesome, it may not deserve number 1 because of its dark themes. But this show is gold compared to most of the shows lower then this!

Awesomely disturbing show... That's why I love it! It gave me nightmares and I like nightmares so that is why I like it!

It sort of scares me to watch it with the special Halloween one and all the other creepy ones - bulldogbeast

This show is weird

Very cute and creative! The only reason I don't watch it is because my father would get angry. The only age groups of shows he won't let me watch are the Miffy the Rabbit age group-types and below. But I can watch Thomas the Tank Engine etc.

When I was little, this was my first real obsession

Thomas & Friends Should be higher than this! - FinnsWorld

Teletubbies sucks

20Incredible Crew

This show, I know, really sucked! This was probably the last live-action show on Cartoon Network! The thing is every live-action show that's ever been on Cartoon Network is crap, that's why it gets cancelled! Their name is Cartoon Network, and they're disrespecting their name to make live-action shows!

You Guys Are So Wrong This Show Was Not Awesome At All! I Mean, There's A Reason Why This Show Only Had 13 Episodes. Why? You Might Ask. BECAUSE IT SUCKED!

This show was funny. I can't believe they only made 13 episodes and then canceled it.

My mom liked it!
