Best Nickelodeon Cartoons of All Timejwileson
The Top TenXW
SpongeBob really deserves the first place - My favorite cartoon ever!
SpongeBob rocks and I've liked this cartoon since I was a kid. Way to go SquarePants!
Can't go wrong with SpongeBob. He's the beast ever no matter how old you are
SpongeBob SquarePants is the funniest laughing show ever. Patrick is really funny and Dumb. Mr. Krab likes money. I love this show. (childhood memories)!
This is one of the best cartoons of all time.V109 Comments
I love this show! It's so funny that I fell of my chair. The characters are so cool especially Sokka who totally cracks me up. I love the romance starting between Aang and Katara. The action is sick as with the awesome bending. And last of all the animals are so adorable and that includes Appa which is a humungous six legged flying bison and Momo which is a flying lemur. I absolutely positively love love LOVE this show. 1000000 out of 10!
This show is a masterpiece, and is more well-rounded, balanced, and developed than most cartoons AND live-action shows I've ever seen. I simply cannot express how this show has challenged my way of thinking about our world issues today (war, violence, racial issues, vengeance, forgiveness and mercy, and many others). The messages this show displays not only serves as a teaching point for a children's cartoons, but the creators also incorporates those messages as part of the plot and part of the character. For example, for one of our heroes, who is a vegetarian and was born into a culture of peace and non-violence, he faces his own moral dilemma of whether it is right to take another's life. Unlike most other children's cartoon, which would simply use the message as a device to teach the lesson to children, the message is expressed through our characters and is also vital to the plot.

This show was literally the best thing to ever happen to Nickelodeon. For me, at least. There are so many great things to say about the show.
For one, it's a great concept. I mean, an Asia inspired world where people can manipulate the four elements into a fighting style? Not to mention how detailed every bit of the world is. In one part of the world is a giant swamp with a tree that's wider than most houses. Another is a freezing wasteland, in which one main character has to take shelter in a cave. Not to mention there's a whole other universe where spirits dwell. Seriously, this is such a fantastic world.
The artwork is amazing. I'll admit, the animation wasn't so good that I exploded, but for a kids show, it's spot on. And it certainly gets better in the Legend of Korra, if you haven't seen that series either.
Characters are spot on. They're all relatable and each go through their own problems in the world. The main character, Aang, is forced upon a destiny ...more
Yes! Avatar is an amazing show, it's not just about fighting and stuff like that, it definitely deserves to be on the list.V119 Comments
This is one of the true classics of the '90s. A lot of cartoons from that decade still hold a very special place in my heart, but only a handful really elevate themselves above the others. Hey Arnold is one of these cartoons. In addition to being a hilarious, romantic approach to the way children perceive their childhood, it's also a very real show, with great themes ^^ moral lessons and well-written stories that allow the characters to emote and feel.
So many cartoons these days come across as junk food. They give the impression that such stories and characters are of no interest to kids, that they only want bright, loud shows with paper-thin plots and weak caricatures. This is why Hey Arnold has lasted as long as it has, and is so popular with fans to this day. It was none of those things, and left fans with something solid to grasp on to ^^ carry with them as they continued to grow older.
Hey Arnold is absolutely the best cartoon to come out of Nick, and its ...more
HA! IS PURE MAGIC... ONE OF THE BEST THINGS OF MY CHILDHOOD WAS JUST LYING IN MY COUCH AND WATCH HELGA DYING FOR ARNOLD (I MUST CONFESS.. I LOVE HIM 2! ) BUT STILL WITHOUT MISSING HER STRONG PERSONALITY AND YET... SOFT AND MUSHY SELF I JUST WANNA SAY THAT I THINK WAS UNFAIR FOR ALL US FANS YOU ENDED A GREAT SHOW LIKE THIS.. AT ITS BEST SEASON, WITHOUT GIVING IT A DECENT AND PROPER END... I WAS SO MAD AND SAD WHEN IT HAPPENS... BRING IT BACK AND YOU WON'T REGRET IT! EVEN NOWADAYS ANY KID FELL IN LOVE OF OUR SHINING FOOTBALL HEAD!
I love hey Arnold because it is like real life and you learn a lot from the show and most characters are hilarious especially Helga she is my favorite because she is so hilarious and she has a heart of gold because she is nice to everyone and she does the funniest pranks. She also had a rough childhood with terrible parents and she always apologize when she makes a mistake and I love when she express herself. I feel like I learned so much from her. That is why I admire Helga and the show so much.
Hey Arnold! Is one of my favorite Nickelodeon cartoons of all time!V37 Comments
this list is stupid... rugrats was the best show on nick, it had the spinn-off all groen up... show respect o this amazing kidd show, tommy taught us how to do everything - terren65
I LOVE THE RUGRATS. I'm 13 years old and I still watch them! If your smart you'll vote for them!
Whoever said this list is stupid, and said this show was good is an idiot, because this is the list of the BEST Nickelodeon cartoons. I respect your opinion but READ THE LIST FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.
This show is so ugly. Fat babies crying.V14 Comments
My favorite Nickelodeon show and probably my all time favorite show. This show pratically has everything: Time Travel, physically surfing the internet and T.V. channels, good moral lessons. The humor never wears off and any age group would enjoy it. The main characters (Cosmo, Wanda, and Timmy) are some of the best main characters in any story. They are extremely humorous and they help you feel better when you're feeling down because they're so emotionally moving.
Back then, this was all true, but after the trilogy specials, this became false, now it's no longer a good show, and it's now an empty, repetitive and mean spirited show, the same thing happened to SpongeBob SquarePants in 2004, which was way earlier, back then, the artwork and music was the problem with this show, but now, everything about it sucks. - nelsonerica
Besides SpongeBob this is my favorite cartoon on Nickelodeon. When I was little I used to always love to watch this show. The episodes never get old. I wish that this show was at least number 2 on the list. Great Jokes and Stories.
This show is my life and I can't believe this is not 1 I love this show What a shame there's no more fop, Nickelodeon sure could use it now that all they have is shows that stink the only time they have it on is at like 6 or 7 am
Come on how about 2V40 Comments
INVADER ZIM IS BY FAR THE BEST CARTOON I HAVE EVER SEEN! SpongeBob is the most DISGUSTINGLY ANNOYING, MIND-MELTINGLY IDIOTIC WASTE OF TIME I have ever heard of. The producers of Invader Zim had a lot of freedom on what they did with the show, and they ended up using that freedom to the fullest extent. Invader Zim had the most amazing, detailed, unique animation that I have never seen on any show, and the main idea of the show is just brilliant and original. Have you heard of or seen any other show like Invader Zim? The characters are lovable, adorable, and incredible too, unlike the fools and idiots found in SpongeBob. The stories of Invader Zim are very creative, and the humor present throughout the show is hilarious and actually funny, unlike in - you guessed it- SpongeBob. Someone seriously needs to reboot Invader Zim! And SpongeBob needs to be DESTROYED WITH FIRE AND SENT INTO THE DEPTHS OF HELL TO SUFFER FOR ETERNITY. Thank you.
This show had balls. It introduced many children to the evils of humanity and the question of morality, all while being funny as hell. Even so, it didn't simply rely on shock like other dark shows; instead, the comedy was led by the battles between 3 truly likable characters (Zim, Dib and GIR) and their hilarious one-liners. It was a thrill ride.
GIR! That is all I should have to say to make it clear this deserves number. This show made me laugh so much I felt like my brother died when it was canceled
Invader zim was awesome I don't know why they banned it it was so cool better than that SpongeBob crapV30 Comments
If you wanna know why this show is SO overrated by its fanbase, here's why:
BECAUSE IT ACTUALLY DESERVES NEARLY ALL OF THE PRAISE THAT IT GETS AND THEN SOME. There. Is that a good enough reason? Ren & Stimpy was an okay series but not as good as this.
How is this not higher? This show alone made my childhood, I don't understand why more people aren't voting for it.
Most hilarious Nick cartoon of all time. If you like animated shows with comedy this is the one you want. Plus better characters, and pictures. Even adults will like this show.
This show was one of the best - NESSquidV15 Comments
What?! This deserves to be in the top five! Predictably, Spongebob is number 1. Man, some people need to watch the 90's. I know it's the past, but Nickelodeon was great back then, much better than it is now. Ren and Stimpy was AWESOME! Much better than Sanjay and Craig, or The Fairly Odd Parents. I know when John left, it went WAY downhill, but still. Give it SOME credit for the first two years. This show never failed to make me laugh.
If only the new Spongebob was as merciful...
Really good show, Should Be #2 Sponge Bob #1 Some of the best episodes were Fake Dad, The Royal Kilted Canadian Yaksmen, and my favorite, The episode where Russian Ren and Stimpy race the U.S. Pigs.
Not as good as the early SpongeBob but the late SpongeBob... - booklover1
This show is good, but Adult Party Cartoon sucked.V8 Comments
AWESOME show, my personal favorite, but in all honesty, I hope it doesn't return for a fourth season. Don't get me wrong, I would LOVE to see what happens next like, how does Danny and Sam's relationship work out? Is it possible for Vlad to return? Does Dani Phantom get adopted by Danny's family? The list goes on. But we all need to take a good look at what Nickelodeon's become. The new art styles are HORRENDOUS, the writers couldn't write a good episode if they tried, the writers DON'T try to write good episodes, and bringing shows back hasn't been a good idea for a LONG time. Look what they did to Jimmy Neutron, or the Rugrats (not All Grown Up, I mean the pre-school days thing), they turned them into terrible "shows" that barely lasted a full season. I LOVE Jimmy Neutron and the Rugrats, and when they re-made those shows, they lost so many fans. They can have a chance to bring the show back, but they are most likely going to screw it up. Personally, I LOVE this show just the way it ...more
Danny Phantom is TRULY THE BEST CARTOON IN THE ENTIRE WORLD! I love Danny Phantom so much & I really hope that Nick will bring him back for a fourth season! Every day I watch at least five episode of Danny Phantom! The show is a major part in my life as is Danny! I was so happy when Danny & Sam finally became boyfriend & girlfriend! Phantom Planet was the best finally EVER! Please, PLEASE, PLEASE SAVE Danny Phantom AND BRING HIM BACK FOR MORE SEASONS! Danny Phantom means everything to me & I really love the show!
Danny Phantom is the best cartoon in Nickelodeon. Also it has some humor, action, romance, adventures, comedy, and moral lessons. Its actually a great show once you see it. I love ghosts.
This show and Avatar: The Last Airbender have a special place in my heart. Although I want more closure and to see how stuff turned out, I don't want Nick's new writers and cartoonists to make another season. They wouldn't be able to make it live up to what it deserves, now if the original writers and artists wanted to make one last season is totally watch!V37 Comments
Spongebob is definitely the number one Nickelodeon cartoon, fairly oddparents is a good show too but this is one of my favourite shows growing up, it should be in the top ten
Favorite cartoon of all time! I still watch it at night on teen nick laugh out loud
This show is part of my childhood heaven - Sassy13crown
This show makes no scentsV5 Comments
One of the best Nick shows because it has science and good characters and wonderful plot lines.
This was a great cartoon and it's a classic. It should definitely be top 5 at least
Deserves to be higher. I loved this show! - RickyReeves
Love this carton the theme is catchy the cast works well together I also really like the movieV4 Comments
This should be 1. Why wasn't in the top 10
One of the funniest shows should be top 5 but unfortunately nick cancelled it
At least I can respect the fact its in the top 20
Why wasn't top 10V2 Comments
This show has to be at the top of the list! It has beautiful animation, a great voice cast and fun, new characters.
Appeals to all audiences, lives up to the reputation of The Last Airbender, and visually stunning in animation and storyline. I am a Korra worshiper. Laugh out loud
Awesome animation show, with just a generally good approach and understanding of human nature. Definitely one you don't want to miss
This deserves to be higher, but ending sucked.V10 Comments
Good cartoon but need more Patrice to become best. Give respond please thank very much
From all cartoons fan
Absolute best cartoon of all time I love watching it with my kids can it wait for a new one so sad to see it go off the air!
This show is old school but it is such a good show
I remember watching it. Anyway I love the theme songV2 Comments
I love this show! This should be number 1 on the list! I wish it could have had more seasons than 3. It deserved at least 5 seasons.
Penguin of madagascar is a good cartoon
This has over 7.1 Million viewers, and accordind to T.V. experts POM is the Second Best Animated Show Behind SpongeBob. GO POM!
I love this show it should be higher at least number 1V6 Comments
The wild thornberrys, are cool! Based on a comedian named marvin and his son named nigel and their crew, a camerawoman named lorraine, a grunge cartoonist named deborah, a nature and myth geek named elizabeth, a strange boy named donnie, and a clever ape named darwin
Childhood right here, childhood
This show was absolutely wonderful and hilarious and great love it
Gotta pay respect to the classics. Much, much better than Avatar.
I love this show so much! In my opinion it's funnier than Monsters inc.
This show must be in the top tens, not 25. It is one of the most unique series that I have seen. It is one of the first Nicktoons to add some action. It has beautiful animation, likeable characters, good morals, and plenty of action. Without My Life as a Teenage Robot, there would not be Danny Phantom or Avatar. It deserves more credit for one of the first action cartoons and girl power series in Nickelodeon.
This needs to be in the top ten. This show is amazing. The adventures are zany and exciting, the villains always set up interesting situations, and the characters are hilarious. Overall, My Life As a Teenage Robot is one of the most clever cartoons I've ever seen in my life.
Favorite cartoon until it got cancelledV1 Comment
The original smash hit nicktoon, one of the most important cartoon series of all-time.V1 Comment
I've loved Catscratch my whole life. I was so sad when it ended. Every character is funny, especially Waffle. This should be higher!
One of the greatest has the best theme song
That song that plays when they show the episode title cracks me up
Screw you Nick foe cancelling it.
