The Top Ten

Avatar: The Last Airbender
Avatar is one of the most beautifully animated, well-written, heart-melting cartoons of all time.
Come on it's the Avatar (The Original one not the movie) does it need anything else.

2Danny Phantom

3The Fairly OddParents
This shows should be higher ranked then spongebob because I think this show is too underrated I mean why do people prefer spongebob over fairly oddparents spongebob squarepants deserves to be lower ranked I LOVE FOP!

4Back at the Barnyard
They say the movie is better than the show, and I totally disagree!

5Invader Zim
Are you kidding me? This is the most overrated show on Nickelodeon! Why did I post this? Now a whole bunch of Invader Zim fanboys will attack me! Remember, I'm only one person. Anyone who is going to respond to this and say that this is the most underrated show on Nickelodeon, just hit the dislike button. Anyways, I don't see what people see in this show. I don't know why people like it, I just don't understand..
Actually this is not underrated. It has a lot of really good reviews. And Yes I agree this show is awesome and should have never been canceled

6The Angry Beavers
This Should be 1 BEST SHOW EVER!

7Rocko's Modern Life
This show is clever, hilarious, awesome, and inspiring. Thank God that Nickelodeon and the infamously copyright-heavy Viacom have finally allowed the Complete Series DVD set with all 4 seasons and all 52 episodes to be released on Amazon.

8All Grown Up!

Best Show on Nickelodeon, There is a list why this show is Amazing, It Funny epically Cat Valentine, It's Entertaining and They Never run out of Ideas. I Wish That Victorious Could Return and Make More New Episodes.


It's a Hannah Montana rip off, if you love this show, then you are anorexic & drunk, stop watching this dump.
Best show in nickelodeon. It has a great ensemble that made it funny. I really love the whole cast especially jade and cat. I wish the show last longer.
This show is so awesome. I LOVE IT. This show needs some support. COME ON PEOPLE

10The Nanny
I thot it waz retarted I watched now I can't stop! my friend thot it waz retarted I showed it 2 him now we both love it!
The only reason people don't like it is because of Fran's weird voice.

The Contenders

Me and my brother just LOVE brainsurge we haven't seen it in awhile but we loved all the zany things that happened on that gameshow. Plus it's still a better show then spongebob ever will be.
It was gross, think of all the brain gunk, very gross compared to the green slime, which is not that gross.
It was pretty cool!

12Rocket Power


This show needs way more love, it's awesome, Blik Waffle and Gordon are such wonderful characters, and strangly Gordon is the only one who actually looks like a cat, Blik looks like an alternate version of Plankton, and I have no idea what Waffle looks like, these designs are so fantastic and creative, plus the awesomeness of having Waffle be voiced Pleekly from Lilo and Stitch, it's so funny to hear, and just the fact that all 3 of them are super rich and live in a mansion with their very own butler is just hilarious, the theme song isn't the best but it works, and unlike other rich people, instead of having them be obsessed with Beer, they're obsessed with ROOT BEER! I don't know why but to me tags just really funny, and this show's episode plots harken back to the old days where Nickelodeon wasn't afraid of making strange episode plots, where as now their show focus on just being in a normal town with gross people doing gross things *cough* Sanjay and Craig. Catscratch, Danny Phantom, El Tigre and Jimmy Neutron need to return, they were Nickelodeon's finest work

15Full House

16Kappa Mikey

17The Backyardigans
This is one of the best animated shows of all time, yet it is greatly ignored....they even stopped showing it on Nick Jr......


It would be a lot more known if they re-created it as a show that's for kids who are to old for Nick Jr. and to young for TeenNick.
They should seriously replace dora the explorer with the backyarddigans I mean I use to love this show

18Big Time Rush
This is very underrated its the best show on nickelodeon by far and the only other kids show that is better is Good Luck Charlie on Disney. Big time rush is funny, smart and the music is great. The acting is much better than a lot of the other shows like Icarly which is very overrated and is just people doing random things. The only problem with BTR is the sound-effects get annoying sometimes but besides that the shows is amazing and is number #1 on NICK!
I absolutely love big time rush. This show is the most amazing show EVER.
Big time Rush is really underrated, and people should know about it more! it's really a great show! I'm always waiting for the next episode to come out :) WAAAAAAAYYYYYY better than the iCarly or Victorious junk. Come on, people! iCarly is retarded! WATCH BTR!
Big time Rush and Drake and Josh 4EVER! <3
Big time rush are real good singers, a real good inspiration, but most of all, real good friends. Kendall tends to freak, James loves himself, Carlos and his helmet lool, Logan and his brains. Gustavo and his shouting, good song writing and being MAJORLY UNattractive, Kelly, yawn this getting boring so... My point is, Btr should be the only show on nick, wait Nick should be called BTR. BTR ARE SO UNDERRATED!
Come on dudes, love BTR

19The Penguins of Madagascar

20Planet Sheen
It is Not Best Nick Show ever. But it is a Decent Show Throught.

21T.U.F.F. Puppy
It doesn't get too much love, sure Dudley's annoying (I'm a dog hater) and so does the humor, but it's one of the better modern Nick cartoons.


Note on last one:oops...I Accidentally Used The FLAWS Instead Of The Good Things So Here You Go!
1.Is ACTUALLY FUNNY...Like Most Underrated Nicktoons Like Robot And Monster
2.The Voice Acters And Actresses Did An AMAZING Job
3.Art Styles Are AMAZING!

22Fanboy & Chum Chum
Whoever likes this show has no taste in real cartoons and should go to a mental hospital! Nobody wants to watch the stupidest show on Earth! I'd rather die than like this show! Same with everybody else! The characters are all idiots! The plot is boring! There's too much farting, vomiting, pooping, burping, all gross out humor! Its animation is the main problem! Its not funny either! I hate these idiotic children with a passion! It should be canceled! Not sorry fans! Do not watch this show EVER! Avoid all it costs please! Its as bad as everybody says it is!
No, the rating seems right. In fact, I think this show is quite OVERrated!
They have no respect for a kids show that doesn't even look that bad.

23Robot & Monster
I agree with you! This needs more seasons and more episodes right now! The only reason why they cancelled this show is because the ideas are unoriginal. I wish that Nickelodeon would air the last two episodes of the first season and make more episodes! People who hate this show don't know that new SpongeBob is bad!
I love this show! The Bacon jokes are really funny! It hasn't been on reviewing websites like IMDB or yet but I wanna check the score and see if this has a good score! Its cute. But its not perfect. There are things the creators should work on, plus the animation is okay. But its entertaining so that is the main reason why this show is good. Its way better than Victorious, T.U.F. F Puppy, All Grown Up, and Bucket and Skinner's epic adventures!

24Aaahh! Real Monsters

25House of Anubis
Best show ever! No one watches it because it looks stupid, but once you start watching you're hooked. Season four hopefully!
You have to be 12 and up to watch this because it is a soap opera, not a kids show.
HOA should get the recognition of all the other big name shows such as iCarly and Victorious but for some reason not as many people seem to know about it. This show is better than the more known shows on Nick and deserves to be acknowledges as the best!
It's basically Nick's #1 soap opera, seriously, this show ROCKS & it's sad to see it get canceled.

26Max and Ruby
This show is my childhood.

27Dragon Ball Z
Dragonball Z was awesome! Cool characters, good action, fun, jokes, worth watching. Love the Whole Thing :D

28My Wife and Kids

29Bucket and Skinner's Epic Adventures

30The Ren & Stimpy Show
I think it gets too much hate. It's my favorite Nicktoon besides SpongeBob.


Rugrats is the opposite of underrated.

32Hey Arnold!

This show needs to be taken off the list, it's actually overrated because it has bad humor.

34Hollywood Heights
It is a great show that involves many twists and turns and keeps you thinking. It even has James Franko in it.
It's a soap opera, so it does not deserve to be on Nickelodeon, but TeenNick.

35As Told by Ginger
Deserves much more praise then it gets a lot better then avatar

36Sanjay & Craig
Seriously, this isn't even the worst cartoon of 2013 (That title goes to Uncle Grandpa). The show is worked on by the people who worked on the show it supposedly "ripped off" (Regular Show by the way). Plus, I actually can handle something like this. I actually get nightmare-fueled by Ren and Stimpy sometimes, and some SpongeBob episodes are nightmare fuel on their own. Reminds me more of a mix of Adventure Time, Flapjack and Billy and Mandy more than anything to me.

37Sam & Cat

38Drake & Josh

39Zoey 101
So good since there's no laugh track & there's comedy at the same time, yet the plot is worth watching, but the show got cancelled because the girl got pregnant.

40Every Witch Way
Most underrated show on Nickelodeon, it is the best one on Nickelodeon in a long time, please bring this higher on the list.
Eh, not really bad. I've seen worse.


41The Wild Thornberrys
It gets too much hate and needs more love.

42Caitlin's Way

43Winx Club
I watched this show since I Washington in 2nd grade and I loved it until I stoped. Nos I santos to come back and it Was gone :(. I Wish this Washington on longer.

44Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius

45SpongeBob SquarePants
I don't like the people who say their fans of the first three seasons of SpongeBob. that's not a real SpongeBob fan
Well, I can only qualify SpongeBob on this list when it has to do with the newer episodes. Seriously, the newer episodes are so underrated. They need more appreciation.


Yes I know it's the highest rated Nick show of all time, but not high enough!

this show is horrible; plus their running out of ideas. I mean, igot a hot room was so boring.
its so cool because they go to many different places and do many different stuff I love it! its really my avourite show ever!
You need your brain cells to grow back by stopping yourself from watching this show, which is a piece of crap.
Me and my mom loved this show. We where Sad when they got ríd of it.
