The Top Ten

1
Ed, Edd n Eddy
Best show ever. Why don't they play this anymore and things like Kids next door, Camp lazlo Fosters home, code lyoko and grim adventures of billy and mandy. I hate the stupid shows they play now like scardy squirrel. BRING THE OLD STUFF BACK
Oh. My. God! I love this show! Ed, Edd, and Eddy are three of the greatest trio of boys I know! It was probably my favorite show on Cartoon Network besides Hamtaro and Kids Next Door! And besides, it's quite challenging to find a quality show(like The Legend of Korra on Nick) when there is nothing but reality shows and other garbage on the television. It quite disappointing of what the 'television media' has done. This is why I watch Lifetime movies with my gran gran now.
This was my favorite kids show while I was growing up, and it was an absolutely amazing cartoon. It's REALLY sad if you look at the network now, because all the new shows are complete garbage compared to shows like this.
[Newest]I remember I used to love this show a lot and I still love it.

2Dragon Ball Z (Toonami)
One of the best shows ever. My brother and I used to fight quite a lot when we were little and this show was the one thing we could agree on. I remember sitting on the floor in front of the T.V. , waiting eagerly for Toonami to start so I could watch this. Dragonball, Dragonball Z, and Dragonball GT have shaped me for the better and have taught me to never give up, always stay true to myself, and to give even your worst enemies a chance.
A turning point in my childhood
The best ever series that made me an addict and the all characters are the rocking no words to mention those things

[Newest]Best show ever created. Everything is thought out and the story is great for people of all ages. I've seen every episode and was never disappointed. The only reason this isn't number 1 is because most people won't give it a chance but if you watch just one episode you will love it too!

3Courage the Cowdly Dog
This is the most funniest yet sometimes scary cartoon of the entire history of cartoon shows. However it is becoming a bit lame nowadays. I prefer the first episodes.
greatest of all time, Ed Edd n Eddy is a sure second

roblist

Doesn't anyone get it that this cartoon was the spoof of all those stupid hollywood horror films? The sarcasm was awesome. And the computer in the attic. Brilliant. "stupid dog, you made me look bad"
[Newest]I a girl from high school love this dog and I want to...

4Naruto (Toonami)
This introduced me to the world of anime and I am so thankful for that. It is an amazing anime and I am always watching it on the computer. I like it better in Japanese instead of in English for some reason. I think it's awesome.

SasuNaru315

Naruto is the best cartoon "believe it" positive character teaches never ever give up and true meaning of friendship
This show was the first anime show I ever watched and led me to so many more. It has many different lessons in the show, has humor, and also who doesn't love action? This should be number 1

5Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy
Most of the Cartoon Network cartoons are really lame, but this is one is extremely creative and hilarious. I mean, there aren't many cartoons that feature the Grim Reaper as a main character, especially not if it's a kid show, but "Grim" is very funny and is easy to relate to. People used me in elementary school, just like how Billy and Mandy use Grim, but we both try to make the best of our lives. For those of you who are Invader ZIM fans, this is basically the Cartoon Network version, since they are both black comedies. Even so, this show is full of creativity, and shows that take risks are a winner in my book.
This show was one of my favourites of all time, I loved it so much I wanna jerk off, that's how my penis always reacted
This and fosters home for imaginary friends define my childhood. They should take off level up, incredible crew, and almost naked animals and replace them with the good stuff!
[Newest]Billy was so funny.

6Family Guy
It's one of those shows that you really have to have a sense of humor to enjoy. You can't take it seriously at all. It's like South Park, only not as good.
FAMILY GUY IS NOT GOOD
I'm pretty sure most people on this site are 12-16 so they really don't watch Family Guy, there parents won't let them.

Zindondiddlybop


7Samurai Jack
Samurai Jack is awesome! It is fairly basic art but shot in such a brilliantly cinematic way that it more than makes up for any of it's shortcomings.
The music and sound is beautifully epic too, just a pity the series was never finished-bring back Jack!
They seriously need to make another season where Jack goes back in time and beats Aku. Then my life will be complete
SAMURAI JACK IS IN the HOUSE THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE SAMURAI.

I wish they continued samurai jack, It was my favorite show.

8Robot Chicken
Just give the show a chance and you'll find out that it is the best show ever!
I was travelling with some friends once. We got to our hotel room at night, and one of them turned on Robot Chicken. We were laughing all night.
I think this should not even be here. Bleach should be at 6 this show is boring and it is a waste of time. Dragonball and Death Note are better
[Newest]This should be 1st robot chicken rules


9Pokemon
10/10 masterpiece. This is my best Cartoon Network show ever. I loved to see ash beat gym leaders, his rivals, I loved the movies, this even has best movie ever (Pokemon heroes) every season was great
Pokemon is NUMBER 1. If you think pokemon is stupid, you should think that digimon is stupid. Pokemon would be way better. I like the first season best because it's funny, but black and white has weird pokemon.
This is just the older seasons that are the classics, the newer ones are terrible! Iris, from what I've seen, is even worse than Dawn. The older ones are pure genius! I think its best to put this show to rest and just show reruns of the older seasons.

10Tom and Jerry
Tom and Jerry should be higher than Ed, Edd, and Eddy.

Stephen2

This show was basically my show I would watch everyday. It is and will be my favorite cartoon of all time. Better than looney toons.
Tom and Jerry are the BEST! I like Jerry better than Tom!
[newest]
Simply par excellence 10/10

The Contenders

11Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends
The show, I must say was very creative. I remember when I was little; I would come home everyday for elementary school and turn on cartoon network and watch that show. Those days were the best.
It's so creative that it can't even be described.
It's one of those shows that makes you wonder why it wasn't thought of before.
The number one show of my childhood
[Newest]This show made me laugh a lot

12Dexter's Laboratory

13Total Drama Island
This show takes all the concept from the survivor series and make it work into a fantastic cartoon series with memorable cast of characters.

Larrysegale1990

This is my favorite show on cartoon network and it is because it is just funny and I don't know why but heather is my favorite just because how smart she plays the game she is bad ass!
This show was EPIC! Why isn't it in the top ten? I loved the drama that happened and the totally SWEET challenges

14One Piece
COME ON GUYS MONKEY D LUFFY IS FUNNY AND awesome ONE PIECE IS awesome

15Scooby-Doo
You gotta love Scooby-Doo!
Scooby-doo is my favorite cartoon show that I watch it in Cartoon Network
Scooby doo deserves to be way above in list.

16Fullmetal Alchemist

17Yu Yu Hakusho
I still remember to this day watching the very first premiere episode on Cartoon Network. And even then I was already immediately connected with the character Yusuke. I think it was the first show I actually felt this strongly about. English dubs, but still was decent. I would definitely recommend for any anime fan.

18Powerpuff Girls

19Inuyasha
I like inuyasha because it reminds me of the T.V. Show Ranma 1/2 and the maker Rumiko Takahashi also the main characters have the same voice
Love this show its great! (: I love all the action, adventure and romance c:

20Looney Tunes
This show is just so classic. It shouldn't be this low.
How is this lower than Pokemon? HAS THE WORLD GONE MAD?!

mrcoolface


21Aqua Teen Hunger Force
Aquateen hungerforce is awesome season 1 THERE RATED TVPG AND TV14 is okay for tweens and teens its very tame season 2 THERE RATED TVPG AND TV14 is okay for tweens it got a little more mature but still tame season 3 14+ is okay for tweens but got way more mature with swears and bloody gore season 4 got more mature bad episodes grim reaper gutters all the 18+ episodes good boost mobile rated TVPG ALL THE TV14S MAYBE DICKESODE BECAUSE ITS RATED 14+ IN CANADA NOT MOONAJUANNA SEASON 5 GOOD ROBOTS EVERYWHERE THE REST IS 18+ SEASON 6 14+ TIME MACHINE SHE CREATURE TVPG 2 AND A HALF STARWARS OUT OF FIVE CREATURE FROM PLAQUE LAGOON SEASON 7 14+ MULTIPLE MEATS HANDS ON A HAMBURGER RABBOT REDUX SEASON 8 14+ WI TRI VAMPIRIOUS LAST DANCE FOR NAPKIN LAD THE CREDITOR LASANGA JUMPY GEORGE 18+ FREEDOM COBRA ALLEN PART 1 ALLEN PART 2 SEASON 9 AQUA SOMETHING YOU KNOW WHATEVER BIG BRO 14+
Every time I watch this show, I am always laughing and repeating their AMAZING quotes. All the characters have something funny about them.
I love this show because it is weird and bizarre! :D

22The Boondocks
It's so funny. The only problem is that they say "n****" every episode.
This makes Cleveland Show non-existent.
Because The Cleveland Show sucks.

23Regular Show
Regular show is funny because the main characters are always fighting
And always get in situations and the funny thing about that is that its called regular show and its the opposite of regular
If you like surreal humor like Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Robot Chicken you'll like this show. Really funny because of Rigby's stupidity. However, I don't like the episode Do Me a Solid or anything after halfway through season 3 and present because Benson got way angrier and there's too much romance in such a male dominated environment. Also why is Adventure Time higher than this masterpiece? It sucks!

metaldude8

18? What the heck man? This is the best cartoon network show EVER! It has everything action comedy laziness this show NEEDS to be number 1. It is so good that it makes all the other shows cry. YEAHYAH!
[Newest]How did this show only get 1 percent

24Codename Kids Next Door
I grew up with KND. My sister and I are now teenagers but when we were younger this was our go to show, and it still would be. The very few times that they show this nowadays are the best times ever. I remember watching the last episode ever, and crying at the end. Only show that's ever made me cry. I will miss this show forever. There were so many great characters and episodes, but I think the best episodes were the ones where all the adults got together to get back at knd and excluded the toilet guy and the other best episode is when numbah 4 goes to the all girls school. Also when numbah 4 plays dodge ball, that is a good one two. But overall the best episode is and always will be the last episode when you find out that numbah one's dad... Never mind. I won't spoil it. There are so many classics I can't name them all and I will always miss and always love KND. Oh no... I am crying just remembering the great times watching this show as a child. Just such a good show I miss it all the time. KND is the best. Should be NUMBAH ONE! Mr. Warburton is my hero. Miss you and love you KND.
I always thought this was the coolest show ever. I still think it's terrific, if a bit immature.
The best adult butt kicking show of all time. They should bring back the show. I remember the great times I had watching the show.

25My Gym Partner's A Monkey

26Teen Titans
This is the best show on cartoon network because its one of the few shows were the characters don't act stupid
I love this show and still do I just wish it was on Cartoon Network so I didn't have to record it on my cable box from boomerang at 11-12 pm. I wish the show on now had a good story in them. At least adventure time and regular show, the best shows on now, and dc nation show hope of good cartoons returning.
Teen Titans is one of my favorite shows till it ended sadly in 2006. But look on the bright side, DC Nation is making a new Teen Titans, but I don't know about it in chibi-form. But I might find out once its coming out on Cartoon Network!
[Newest]I love this show it should be number one!

27Bleach
One of the most heartfelt stories about a orange haired teen named ichigo rivals naruto and one piece
This show is great, but it can sometimes get really ' boring...

28Ben 10
BEN 10 IS THE BEST! I AM HIS BIGGEST FAN! I do like all 3 of Ben 10 series. Can't wait till the fourth coming out. Oh, did you know Ben Tennyson teams up with Rex from Generator Rex? They appearred together in a 1-hour episode only on Generator Rex and they teamed up to defeat a half-alien, half-EVO monster. That episode was bad-ass awesome!

I don't know why this show isn't #1 it has everything a good T.V. series needs it has action, comedy, adventure, sci-fi, and it has lasted for 8 years (so far), and the series has the veiwer in suspence the whole time!
I think the original version is best, and everyone else thinks so too, and now they are going back in time and feutering new adventures of 10 year old Ben, and the 16 year old Ben! I also love the new artwork in Ben 10: Omniverse, because like the original series it has a bright theme to it and seems much funnier than, Alien Force and Ultimate Alien. Stay tuned for the new Ben 10 series Ben 10: Omniverse (Coming to Cartoon Network in September 2012! )

Not in the top 10 list?

29Rurouni Kenshin
Epic story of a man who is haunted by his past, and vows to over come it.
This suppose 2b number 1 It Was The Best Show Ever

30Death Note
This was one of my most favorite shows I missed when Toonami left. Next to Naruto, Bo-bo-bo, sailor moon etc. Now a days, things are out of hand, please bring back the anime we loved to watch on Friday- Saturday!
This is undoubtably my favorite show. After every episode ended, I couldn't help but craving more. This definitely deserves to be up higher than 37th place.

31Adventure Time with Finn & Jake
This show is AWESOME. It mixes nonsense and adventure concept. I know many people would argue about bringing the old cartoons back, but this show, to me, is the best CURRENTLY aired in Cartoon Network.
This is a show that doesn't seems to be what it looks like, because that's a dark past inside this cartoon (Mushroom War), it's so epic, every song in the cartoon have sense, and all those jokes are made for both Teenagers and Adults, I personally think the creator of this show is a total genius.
Adventure Time is one of the most epic animated shows in history. The only other show on Cartoon Network this awesome is Regular Show, but Adventure Time is better.
Adventure Time is one of those shows that just when you see it, you know it's special. With a simple but clean art style, great music, logical continuity, crazy but lovable characters, amazing facial expressions and clever humor, I believe this is the show that got Cartoon Network in the right direction again!
[Newest]I swear its more than obnoxious characters and random nonsense. It just looks like that from the outside looking in.

32MAD
GREAT T.V. sHOW! A LOT OF STUFF ON CARTOON NETWORK IS STUPID. THE STUFF ON CARTOON NETWORK IS LIKE LOONEY TOONS, THE AMAZING WORLD OF GUMBALL STAR WARS AND ALL OF THAT JUNK. THEN OF COURSE ADULT SWIM COMES ON AND I'M ONLY 10 YEARS OLD SO THE ONLY THING I CAN WATCH ON THAT IS KING OF THE HILL. SO THAT'S WHY MAD AND REGULAR SHOW ARE THE BEST SHOWS ON CARTOON NETWORK.
THIS SHOW IS NOT FOR LITTLE KIDS ITS EITHER FOR YOUNG TEENS OR 10-15 BECAUSE IN AN INTERVEIW THEY SAID WERE MORE LOW TEENS AND THEY SAID WERE SORT OF 6-12 SO IT COULD BE FOR 10-15 INFACT I'm POSITIVE that's WHAT ITS FOR ANY WAY ITS A CRUDE YET FUNNY SHOW
Looney Tunes isn't junk. How dare you?

mrcoolface


33Chowder
It's humor is clever. The animation is exotic. ALL the characters are great and have great design
Love that animation and lines the characters have! Everyone is all cheery and the cartoon just gets you in a happy mood! Plus, Chowder is a cute cat bear rabbit thing!
Best show ever. Come on the animation the voicing is just hilarious and just plain out funny. I could watch this show for days
[Newest]Its has the best jokes

37Space Ghost Coast to Coast

38Code Geass
the awesomest ever well although my vote is for death note the would be my second choice and bleach would be my third

Code Geass is one of the best Mecha Anime ever made with it supernatural geass ability and awesome yet cool design of it Knightmare Frame

39Code Lyoko

40Johnny Bravo

41Flapjack

42King of the Hill
I love this show! Funny and awesome at the same time! I love the animation and characters. Hank's friends were funny and weird at the same time, Boomhauer talks fast, Dale's quotes make me rofl and others were funny! The episodes were great, even the old ones. Every time I see this show, it makes me want to say "I sell propane and propane accessories. " Why the creators quit this show? This is the best show I ever seen on Adult Swim!
I watch this show all the time

60Spongebob Squarepants
Oh, come on! This isn't even on Cartoon Network!
This show so awesome
This show is on Nick.

61Rick and Morty
Best show ever on adult swim. Don't know what the critics of this show are thinking. Oh, that's right. They're not thinking.
It's on adult swim, it literally sucks
I hate Rick and Morty and it's one of the 11th best T.V. shows of all time. only one bloody season of what?! Some drunk grandpa and his grandson going on dumb adventures. When I first heard about it I thourght it would be good. But then when I watched the first episode it litterally stunk up the cartoon line I hate this show!

62Eureka Seven

63Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo
I MISS THAT SHOW ITS FUNNY AS HELL

64Paranoia Agent

65The Secret Saturdays
The plot of cryptids being hidden among us and the whole idea of somebody whom is well known on a T. V show actually being an evil lunatic bent on taking over the world is a truly unique concept.

But, on a much sadder note, the creators basically flung the show into the abyss we all know as Cartoon Network (No offense but every decent show that ever touches CN dies in a horrible fire we know as the directors of Cartoon Network and their lack of patience).

Sadly, there is more that they did wrong, they didn't really promote the show as they did Chowder or the KND (Which evedentally could have been CN's "SpongeBob" so to speak. There's more they did wrong they burned all bridges that could have made a spin-off series or another season (And I know you're thinking "What about Zach Monday? " well I have covered that base too. It would have been a weak series unless they made some Yu-Gi-Oh Gx style alternate universe, but that would've been a weak link too.

What I'm saying is that it was a good show but its dead and gone and there is no way it can come back.
~Noah

It's a awesome show. Why don't they show it on Cartoon Network

82Moral Orel
This show was amazing! Its one of the only shows that made me laugh, cry, and just sit there thinking "Did they really just do that? " I can't believe how underrated this show is, and I really wish Adult Swim didn't cancel it (This show got cancelled for being too dark).

83China, IL
Stupid show what is about anyway a bunch of reatrded chinese people

84Futurama

85Steven Universe
I thought this would be another "Uncle Grandpa", but I gave it a chance. It is now one of my favorite shows of all time. It has a great theme song, diverse characters (that are not annoying), and great morals. This show, along with Adventure Time and Regular Show, has got to be the best Cartoon Network show currently running.

86Attack on Titan
Attack on Titan should be 1

87Loiter Squad

88Mr Pickles
Best show on AS since moral oral

89The Amazing World of Gumball
Gumball is rated TVY7 THE SPOON AND THE QUEST WERE THE FIRST EPISODES TO BE RATED TVPG THE DATE RATED TVPG THE GI RATED TVPG THE PARTY TVPG THE PRANK TVPG THE MYSTERY TVPG THE SHOW HAS SOME ADULT JOKES GUMBALL IS NAKED IN A WHOLE BUNCH OF EPISODES AND HIS CROTCH IS CENSORED OUT THE SHOW FOCUS MORE ON DATING AND HAS SOME CLOSE TO SWEARING WHAT THE WHAT AND SOME DISTURBING SCENES LIKE GUMBALL AND DARWIN ACCIDENTALLY KISSING NOT KNOWING IT AND LIKING IT A CREEPY HORSE IT REALLY FEELS LIKE IT SHOULD BE RATED TVPG
The Problem Solverz wasn't the only Cartoon Network original show to be rejected by Adult Swim, because it was too cute. The Amazing World of Gumball however was originally intended to be an Adult Swim show just simply named "Gumball", but rejected for looking too cute, allegedly, so it also got passed on to Cartoon Network.
Trippiest show on cartoon network. Adventure show and Flapjack are good. Not a huge fan of Regular Show or Chowder.
[Newest]This is the best show ever...
My all time favorite!
