Top Ten Best Cartoons

TTT

The Top Ten

1 SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob 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 18 years, and is beginning its 10th season .

This is an AMAZING cartoon. Spongebob began in 1999. It didn't get major success until season 2. Season 3 had spongebob it to new heights, although a hiatus was going on in 2003 during this season due to the movie being made. After the movie things went a little down hill. Season 4 and 5 were still pretty good, but season 6 and 7 were pretty bad. But season 8 brought back some of the old humor and season 9 so far is even better than season 8. Season 10 is coming next year and is supposed to be the longest and best spongebob season ever! There's a new movie coming next year and hopefully spongebob will be as good as the first 3 seasons!

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? The number 1 cartoon in the world is SpongeBob SquarePants! Absorbent and yellow and porous is he. The show became a worldwide phenomenon. Just why is SpongeBob the number 1 cartoon in the world? Reason being is because of everything about it. The show debuted in 1999, and still exists toady. Everybody around the world loved it thanks to the creators of the show from other Nicktoons classics like Rocko's Modern Life, The Angry Beavers, and Hey Arnold! Plus it won like over 11-12 awards in the Kids Choice Awards. The video games do count. It may have lost to favorite cartoon in the 2008 Kids Choice Awards, but nobody cared, and the show became the most popular ever since. It has over 32,000-35,500 fans all around the world. So it's both the most popular cartoon on Nickelodeon, and alone all over the world!

I loved this show as a kid, I still love it as a teenager, and I will always love it no mater how old I get. This is without a doubt the greatest cartoon I have ever seen. It is better than looney toons, it is better than Tom and jerry (though not by much) and it is MUCH better than everything on Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon and Disney nowadays. While looney toons and tom and jerry were the pioneers, or the citizen canes, of the cartoon world, SpongeBob is the godfather of cartoons. They took the ore existing formula for the cartoon show and got it right, almost perfectly right. So thank you Tom Kenny, Stephen Hillenburg and everyone involved in the making of this nostalgic powerhouse! Thank you for SpongeBob, the lovable, friendly, hard working child who was my hero as a kid and one of my favorite fictional characters to date. That you for Patrick, who, in addition to being probably the best comic relief character ever, is an awesome and loyal friend and a true hero. Thank you for ...more

I love this shows ever since I was little and now I still continue on loving it. Spongebob is the funniest of all.

2 The Simpsons The Simpsons The Simpsons is a cartoon that started in 1989, and is still running as of 2016. It is about a man named Homer and his family going through a long series of misadventures.

Remember Family Guy, because that show was so popular, it stole it from one of the cartoons coming in at number 4. The Simpsons. The show was crowned the number 1 most popular FOX cartoon worldwide. Like family Guy, and South Park, there is a little bit of inappropriate stuff for kids. But everyone around the world loved the cartoon, because it has a lot of humor, and other stuff. It became really popular, because more than 20,000 people loved the show. However it still can't match for the next cartoon.

Classic. Funny. Well animated. Everything everyone loves about cartoons.

Watching recent episodes I'm surprised at how clever it is. Maybe I was to young to catch all the innuendos, sly celeb jabs and pop culture references but it's a cartoon that ages well even now and is perhaps more enjoyable for adults than children.

The simpsons is the best thing to ever happen to cartoons

3 Looney Tunes Looney Tunes Looney Tunes is an American animated series of comedy short films produced by Warner Bros. from 1930 to 1969 during the golden age of American animation, alongside its sister series Merrie Melodies.

One of the very first series of cartoons ever made, Looney Tunes introduced a new style of Cartoons that is still used today. Slapstick. That means Safes and Anvils falling from the sky, Bombs and TNT stuffed in pants, Giant Hammers, Explosions, the list goes on. Not only that but introduced great charaters like Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.

Looney tunes is an awesome cartoon... Its funny when daffy and bugs are together in an episode

I love the Looney Tunes. My favorite is when Daffy Duck said to Bugs Bunny "You're Despicable."

I love this especially bugs daffy porky marvin gossamer pete fog horn elmer wile e road runner lola tina Henry hawk granny slyvester tweety Yosemite speedy...

4 South Park South Park South Park is an American adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network. The show is about four boys, who are Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick, and their adventures in South Park, Colorado.

I love this show! It may get racist at sometimes, and Cartman insults Jews a lot, but this show actually has a plot. A plot for every episode. And, back in the old days, Kyle or Stan always learned something. They give us lessons that we now use in our everyday lives.

And the fact that in their Cartoon Wars episodes (may be spoiler) when Cartman stated that Family Guy is nothing but jokes that have nothing to do with the storyline... South Park has jokes that go with the storyline.

Cartman is designed to be the most evil child in the world. He is like a metaphor that represents everything wrong with society. - Lasvegasxavier

South Park was Comedy Central's world phenomenon. It became the most popular cartoon on Comedy Central. It maybe very popular, however their is some stuff kids shouldn't watch, because the rating of the show is rated
T.V. -MA. Most of the adults around the world love the show. The total of popularity is about 7,000. Obviously Futurama almost took it's place for best Comedy Central cartoon. But the South Park fans didn't care about it. On to the next cartoon we go.

My passion and love for this show will never end. Sure, it's crass, it's crude, and it's pretty over the top, but you can never judge something by its surface. Unlike something like Mr.Pickles ( Not trying to offend fans ), there's a really positive spirit behind that shocking exterior. These messages leave you thinking, but also laughing! Because, readers, they're pointing out everything wrong with society! It makes you realize what has become of the world, and how you can try to fix it. A bonus is, maybe this is my own bias, but I love this art style. The characters are perfect, the voice acting cracks me up, and the writing is unbelievably sharp! It can be low-brow, but I adore this show. I highly recommend every 13+ to watch this warm, fuzzy, paper masterpiece. Thank you, Matt Stone and Trey Parker.

This can be really offensive a lot, but it is undeniably funny. - LeiaSkywalker

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

Actually Tom & Jerry had more battles than Dragonball z did. Over 300 cartoons featuring a cat battling a mouse is much more entertaining than some stupid martial arts crapfest.

It is the best cartoon of all times and also its own thousands of films with live peoples! Tom and Jerry is much more than just cartoon, its sweet memory about good old days. It was probably first cartoon I ever watched... I will watch this till the moment I wouldn't open my eyes

This should have been on the top, above all.
This cat-mouse Chase has entertained numerous people for over seventy years and is still going strong. - nicholas73

Wait, The creator of Yogi Bear created this masterpiece of animation. Hannah Barbara is capable of great things. It's the first cartoon I ever watched. All I knew back then was Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, which is my childhood.
Tom and Jerry is actually funny, but entertaining. I'd rather watch Tom and Jerry than Scooby Doo episodes or season 30 of the Simpsons. I like the Old Simpsons, not Lisa goes Gaga.

6 Avatar: The Last Airbender Avatar: The Last Airbender Avatar: 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.

This show is a masterpiece. It reinvented what it meant to be a cartoon by not being some ridiculous slapstick comedy that relies on shallow and unrealistic plot lines just to gain a laugh. Avatar was the one of the first successful cartoons to introduce an overarching plot, a storyline that stretches over the entire series. By doing this, they were able to show great character development. Sokka turned from a narcissistic, misogynistic jerk to a man deserving of leading the Water Tribe, while still maintaining his comedic elements. Aang turned from a bubbly little kid to a true hero. Katara turned from an overbearing supporting character to a strong, independent warrior. Zuko probably displayed the most change, literally turning from villain to hero. You get the point. And aside from the main characters, there was an amazing and memorable cast of supporting roles like Iroh, Bumi, and Azula. Aside from characters, the universe they creating was so expansive and detailed. So much so ...more

Avatar the Last Airbender is an amazing show. I'm surprised it isn't in number one right now! It's perfect for every age; it has EVERY element that a great show would have; romance, comedy, adventure, action, and great characters. Toph has incredible and awesome earthbending powers, Aang is fun-loving (and of course the Avatar), and Sokka keeps me laughing all the time! (I don't think there was any episode where I didn't laugh out loud). Katara is very brave and kind, which is definitely something to admire! I've seen every single episode, and is NEVER boring. The creators also did a great great job, especially with the whole bending concept! Who doesn't love that? The story line is amazing and filled with danger and excitement. This show is a classic! There is no show currently in the world that can beat Avatar and there never will be! I will never stop liking this AWESOME AWESOME cartoon.

In summary:
GO TEAM AVATAR!

An thoughtful, mature, heartwarming and sometimes humourous show with which no other cartoon can compare. It has a simple fantasy premise but the execution is interesting and inspired. The show convinces you that this world exists in and of itself, with unique cultures (cleverly inspired by real east-Asian and inuit cultures) with a magical power (bending) integrated into the lore perfectly. The characters are relatable, multidimensional and somehow quite accurate portrayals of children. For a show generally targeted towards children, the use of a character like Zuko, with an alignment with the antagonists at the beginning but an alignment with the protagonists by the end, is quite revolutionary. The presentation of the people of the fire nation as human, and the government of the Earth Kingdom as corrupt elucidated that the enemy nations aren't always merely evil and that the allied nations are never perfect either. This is a nuance which again is revolutionary for a children's show.

If you don't like this show, I will find you and I will kill you

7 Gravity Falls Gravity Falls Gravity 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.

The characters are three dimensional, there's good mysteries, and there are no toilet jokes at all. Probably not suitable for younger children, because it is dark at times, but it is very well written and appeals to preteens, teens, and even some adults. There are also no stereotypes, laugh tracks, or even any fashion obsessed teenage main characters like in other Disney shows. The art style is also very original, and so is the theme song. Even the cast are very charismatic, like Kristen Schaal, Jason Ritter-son of John Ritter- and many guest stars, such as John Oliver, John DiMaggio, and Patton Oswalt. This is definitely unlike any other cartoon I've ever seen.

Why is this show not higher on the list? This isn't a dump cartoon for kids, this is a show about characters and a big main plot with the mystery element. I watched this show since the beginning, started to think it was just a funnu cartoon. But after the season 1 finale, I realised that there was a big main plot and big secrets hidden throughout the episodes. I watched theories about Gravity Falls on YouTube like the twin brother theory and really got into it. Then I watched season 2, which has a bigger focus on the main plot, and we got more answers. The episode "Not what he seems" blew my mind and showed how good a episode could be. The show went on to the epic finale, that I watched yesterday. It shows the main character conflict and how much continuity Gravity Falls has. Alex did a great job with the show, even if this show wasn't that long. It has a really serious plot and deserve a better placement on the list. I think that most cartoon, like Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry (I ...more

This show is amazing! Disney has been failing us recently, so this is the only thing keeping me on this channel. It is smart, creative, funny, and mysterious. I understand that it is dark at times, but I never really thought this show was meant for younger kids. Even though it is only number 18 on this list as of right now, at least it's number one on "Top ten cartoons that deserve a higher ranking on the top 10's list"!

Amazing show. I wish it would get a spin off. - Stevenuniversefangirl

8 Regular Show Regular Show Regular 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.

Cartoon Network classics were amazing, however this show blew all of the people away. The show named Regular Show. It became the most popular Cartoon Network cartoon. Everyone loved it, because of the awesome humor, cool lines, and amazing action. Even the characters were amazing. More than 12,000 people loved the show so much. Reason being is that comedy is one of the most popular genres worldwide. The next cartoon isn't from Cartoon Network, but on FOX.

It is the smooth delivery and character development that makes this show enjoyable to watch over all others. While with each new episode most shows seem to reset situations or continue a story line, Regular Show implements scenarios that end in each episode, but still will carry weight later on in the next. We watch as these experiences begin to weigh the choices of the characters and make them all the more enjoyable. Well done.

How is this in the top ten? Each episode is a bland remix of the last adding nothing to the series other than reinforcing the fact that main characters of the series are irritatingly irresponsible and are an overall annoyance to a somewhat decent show. The jokes are recycled roughly 10 episodes (in a good season) and they aren't even that funny. They output this on a kids network yet it has nothing to relate to a kids life other than mere hobbies like slacking off. The fact that this trash heap got so many episodes is mind boggling considering how every single episode plays out the same way: a simple task is given to Mordecai and Rigby, all goes normal until they're fly-like attention span cause a supernatural catastrophe to occur which seemingly obliterates the park, and could have been simply avoided by doing their job in the first place. And before somebody says that would make for a less interesting show, then how come all of the other characters do their jobs and still maintain a ...more - Therevengewedge

This show should definitely be above gravity fails

9 Ed, Edd n Eddy Ed, Edd n Eddy Ed, Edd n Eddy is a Canadian-American animated comedy television series created by Danny Antonucci for Cartoon Network, and the sixth of the network's Cartoon Cartoons.

The end of this show ruined the rest of my childhood. I still miss it to this day, yet I still hope that no one tries to recreate such a masterpiece of a cartoon without the original actors. - izzychavez

While it disappoints me to no end that this show ended, it does me good to know that my favorite cartoon went out with a bang. I will never forget this show. It rules.

It had cool jokes. Nice character development. And was Cartoon Networks most popular show. It also had a good finale. Watch it for a half hour of laughs.

This show was a MASTERPIECE. It's THE BEST Cartoon Network show, and the current longest running Cartoon Network show (it ran for 10 years). The jokes were hilarious, every single episode you'd find yourself rolling on the floor in laughter. I hope that they don't reboot this, the finale was perfect the way it was.
RIP ED EDD N EDDY (1999-2009). - Catacorn

10 Family Guy Family Guy Family Guy is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Griffins, a family consisting of parents Peter (Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Idiotic Son), and Stewie ...read more.

I just love this show. Brian and Stewie are awesome, the musical numbers are just brilliant, the plots are usually great, and most of the secondary characters are great, or at least funny (Quagmire, Carter, etc.). It's my type of show, my type of humor. I don't think it copies from the Simpsons. Sure, the family might be based around it (dad, housewife, son, daughter, baby) but otherwise, they aren't very alike. In short, I adore the genius that is Family Guy. And if you disagree, all I can say is: LET ME HAVE MY OWN OPINION.

Family Guy is stupid! It got stupid when it began because of the constant randomized humor and it's stupid because of PETER GRIFFIN who is a retarded man-child. I only laughed once or twice at a time when I watched it on Netflix. The characters are bland: Peter is retarded and annoying, Lois is a stereotypical mother who isn't even hot at all, Chris is stupid but tries, Meg is outspoken, Stewie is a vulgar and abusive person who doesn't bring humor at all, and Brian is a dumb liberal!

Speaking of comedy, this show became so popular, it came on FOX. The name of that show is Family Guy. Why is Family Guy one of the popular cartoons worldwide? Reason being is because of the humor. But like South Park, there is some stuff inappropriate for kids. But most adults loved it, and became a worldwide phenomenon. It was crowned the most popular show on FOX, because more than 15,500 people around the world was so amazed of the show. However it's still number 5, because it stole it from one of the cartoons coming up next.

This is the best show I have seen in years it has comedy whoch I like a lot

11 Batman: The Animated Series

The dynamic storytelling and unique film noir style is only matched by the high caliber action scenes and unforgettable cast of characters. This show redefined batman. The Joker's insane maniacal schemes, the riddlers uncanny intellect, Poison ivy's charms and wiles, Two-Face's juxtaposition and character development, these are only matched by the Strong harshness of a kind caring batman who knows what it is like to "have a bad day". Alfred's dry wit and Commissioner Gordon's determination and inclusion as part of the Bat-family really makes this show complete. Adults, children and teens may watch this show and each enjoy it on different levels. It is everything a cartoon should be.

Kevin Conroy's stellar performance, mixed in with the artwork and animation, really made us believe in a Batman, a real Batman. One who fought evil, and was untainted. A hero able to stare into the worst of humanity and seek its redemption. Which other hero or series was able to give deep and meaningful's through a twenty minute cartoon. The insanity and evil of the Joker, the sad story of Mr Freeze the cast of unusual villains (Kyodai Ken, Lyle Bolton, and Doll-Face, I'm looking at you), the episodes without supervillians, and the uniqueness of every episode makes this the greatest animated series of all time. The episodes "Second Chance", "His Silicon Soul", "Perchance to Dream", "Two-Face (Parts 1 & 2)", "Heart of Ice", "Over the Edge", "Mad Love" and "I Am The Night" are just a few of the many episodes which redefined Batman and his villains showing them to be more human than ever.

This is by far the best cartoon ever! It's the show that changed everything! Before this show kids didn't have any adult-level cartoons. The show is dark, but still comepletely accesable to kids! That's hard to do!

Love Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy!

12 Futurama Futurama Futurama is an American animated science fiction sitcom created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

This show is like space age Simpsons, plus except the characters are unique, the setting is hilarious, the plot lines demonstrate mastery in storytelling, and it has so many 1 liners and quotable scenes that it's just about my favorite cartoon ever. Real shame that it got cancelled.

All those who think otherwise should bite Bender's red hot glowing, shiny metal, glorious golden ass!

This cartoon is nearly perfect. The characters are all great and as silly as it can be it can also be deep and touching. The characters grow and work very well together and has never failed to make me laugh. How this is stuck at number 11 is beyond me - Johnnyt800

Wow, there is no comparison to this show! It's surreal story-lines, hilarious jokes, and crude but likable characters, make for the greatest cartoon of all time. It's more of an adult show, but it isn't super inappropriate so kids around age ten or eleven can still watch and enjoy it. Hands down, my favorite cartoon ever.

13 Adventure Time Adventure Time Adventure 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.

Oh it disappoints me to see such a great show not in the top 10. I know why this is so low. The people who say "it's to random and colorful. Pen Ward was stoned when he wrote it overlook it and vote for something else. That would be understandable if you never seen the show and based all thoughts of it off of the 2 minutes you've seen. And it's not called "stoned" it is a little something called creativity. If you don't know why this show has such a large adult fanbase, I'll give you the gist. This show is quotable, creative, has likable characters, is funny, clever and a big shocker for the people whom I've described earlier, it is not just "random to be random". If you were to watch it the randomness is explained, and not through huge reveals, just some bits and pieces of continuity slowly revealing the story's history. That's right. It is not a cartoon that just has one weird episode and starts over the next. There is an ever unfolding history that gets you to keep watching. It is, ...more

Do you like adventures like not Dora, not Pokemon, not even Kung Fu Panda. This one show blew everyone away. The name is Adventure Time with Finn and Jake, or Adventure Time for short. The cartoon was crowned the number 1 Cartoon Network show worldwide. Adventure Time was so funny, it has a lot of adventures. The show is almost the equivalent to the Super Mario Bros. , Because they both have kingdoms, they both save princesses, and they both have sports to play. Everyone loved Adventure Time, because it was a complete success, it was the best cartoon over the world. About 28,000-30,000 people loved the show. However it maybe the number 1 cartoon on Cartoon Network worldwide, but it's still not the number 1 cartoon worldwide alone. As we save the best for last.

This show should be higher because of the huge legacy it brought. I like regular show a lot but this show needs to be the #1 rated cartoon of all time for cartoon network because of the impact it had on cartoon network during it's dark age. If it wasn't for Adventure Time, shows like Regular Show, Steven Universe and Gravity Falls wouldn't exist. I like the setting it has and it's story is better than regular show's story. Although I still think regular show is superior in comedy. Adventure time however has my favorite cartoon character friendship of all time. Finn and Jake are just so well written and their friendship is the best.

I'm not sure if this show is a gateway drug to LSD or the other way around

14 Scooby Doo Where Are You?

Question: WHY THE HECK IS SCOOBY DOO NOT IN THE TOP TEN?!
Just like SpongeBob and Gravity Falls, I will love this show and remember it forever. My dad is as obsessed as SpongeBob with this cartoon! It is very original too: Who ever thought of putting a talking dog and his "Gang" (NEVER TEAM. I DO NOT LIKE THAT WORD, EVEN IF I'VE USED IT.) that solves mysteries and catch suspects.

Each character is different, too. Sure, they may seem like "Stereotypes" but that's just the fun of it. It is an enjoyable and amazing show, and I will never, ever, ever ever ever ever forget it.

~TAH OUT! - TheAlbinoWolf

Scooby Doo is the best cartoon to be put out on television, ever. It's a classic. It's the king of all mystery shows. This show doesn't even need an introduction.

I grew up watching scooby doo as a kid. The coolest thing about from the new scooby doo movies series is that they made batman and robin into the scooby doo world I thought that was a great idea.

15 Phineas and Ferb Phineas and Ferb Phineas 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.

Phineas and Ferb starts the countdown, because although it is a popular Disney Channel show, but it's still not enough for the most popular shows right now. Most people loved the show, it made some of them watch Disney Channel more often. It just goes to show that Phineas and Ferb is a funny comedy, and lots of people in the world love comedy. More than 5,000 people worldwide loved the show, but the show is still in danger because it's still number 10 in the countdown.

I'm sorry, but if this isn't top ten worthy, then Gravity Falls isn't either. Though I love both shows, Phineas And Ferb started a whole wave of merchandising Disney Channel never could dream of, all while staying as a great cartoon for 8 years, and being fun for the whole family. Without Phineas And Ferb there is no Gravity Falls or any other decent cartoons of the 2010's (Adventure Time, Legend Of Korra etc.)

Why is it so low on the list? Why is my little pony higher on the list. This and my little pony should switch places!

16 The Flintstones The Flintstones The Flintstones is the first animated prime-time American television series. It was broadcast from September 30, 1960 to April 1, 1966 on ABC.

Only at 16! This cartoon was hysterical! This should be in top 10.

The Flintstones was so, so clever. Amusing and inventive. Excellent for its age. - Myke1

This shows was spoofed from the Honeymooners. YouTube it if you dumb-dumbs don't know what that mean.

17 Invader Zim Invader Zim Invader Zim is an American animated television series created by Jhonen Vasquez for Nickelodeon. The series centers on an extraterrestrial named Zim from the planet Irk, and his mission to conquer Earth and enslave the human race along with his malfunctioning robot servant GIR.

An amazing show that for some reason just couldn't stay on television. Fans brought it back a few years later, in 2006, and brought back reruns on nicktoons a few years after they stopped showing those. Definitely needs more episodes, because although I love it, seeing the same episodes over and over gets old really fast. All in all, its one of the greats in the era which I consider to have come out with the highest concentration of hilarious and edgy cartoons, 97-03. Back when SpongeBob had its original writers, as well. If the creator and the writers hadn't left after the movie, I doubt SpongeBob would get any of the flack it's gotten these past few years; or if they just ended it after the movie, it would've easily been the best cartoon of all time, even surpassing this one.

Actually, I think the movie would've been a good stopping point for the series. There've been a few good episodes after 2004, but EVERY episode before the movie was a classic. Invader zim ending was kind ...more

This show is one of the best T.V. shows I've ever seen, along with SpongeBob, Gravity Falls, and Steven Universe. Infact, this might me my favorite show out of all of them. A show about an alien that it's own race doesn't like with a stupid robot who likes waffles, an obvious descise, and ONE person who knows he's an alien, it's comedy gold! Plus, the plots are hilarious. They made a guy eating waffles for 11 minutes funny. Any show that can do that is amazing. Zim is a hilarious villain that we end up rooting for, Dib makes you laugh ever time his plans fail, Gaz is... Well, Gaz, and GIR is the cutest and dumbest thing ever, witch is amazing. I wish this show was still on the air because it was AMAZING! You get stuff like Hey Arnold!, Rugrats, SpongeBob, and all of the sudden you have a show that nails dark humor. Every time it managed to get it right. They made going back in time and slowly killing someone funny because it was with rubber pigs. This show is a brilliant work of art ...more

Man this is so underrated, for people who think it's overrated think about Adventure Time SUCKS and is higher than this masterpiece. For all you AT fans go check worst Cartoon Network Shows of all time and most overrated cartoons. Original (pre-2008) SpongeBob is not as good as Is. Gravity Falls is my second favorite show after Is. Is is just so good, it's funny, cool and has extremely likeable character (Invader ZIM is my cartoon crush(I love the insane hilarious "evil" type))

Why the hell is this number 18? This show is badass!

18 Hey Arnold! Hey Arnold! Hey Arnold! is an American animated television series created by Craig Bartlett that aired on Nickelodeon from October 7, 1996 to June 8, 2004. The show centers on a fourth grader named Arnold, who lives with his grandparents in an inner-city boarding house.

It's one of the only cartoons that keeps getting better by each season. The last season had the best episodes.

This show should be in the top ten of the list! This show is the best show ever and I recently bought the whole series on dvd and it's amazing! This show deserves more love

Great Nick Classic and Arnold was great as a main character

I've never seen it, but I wish I could. You all make it sound very good. In fact, it probably IS better than Breadlozers. If it isn't, I'll be disappointed.

19 Steven Universe Steven Universe Steven Universe is an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network. The show's based around a young boy by the name of Steven Universe, who is a hybrid of a gem and a human. He lives with his gem friends, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl.

Steven Universe might look like another run of the mill, bland cartoon where the perfect, invincible Gems are always happy and there's sunshine and rainbows The End... At first glance. Don't judge a book by its cover. Steven Universe is a wonderfully thought out show. It deals with problems such as (but not limited to) growing up and losing a loved one; all in a gentle manner that's appropriate for kids and adults alike. It shows that anyone can be strong, in their own ways. And despite Steven Universe's darker backstory, it still manages to be VERY funny. If you haven't given this show a try, please give it a chance.

I PROMISE THAT IF YOU WATCH THE FIRST 13 EPISODES BEFORE JUDGING YOU WONT REGRET IT! Steven Universe was the one Cartoon Network show I did not give a chance at first. I watched one episode that didn't hook me because I did not have the background to appreciate the great moments in the show, but after watching Cartoon Network show after show go downhill (Uncle Grandpa, Teen Titans Go) I decided to watch the first 10 and then decide. I spent the rest of that summer day marathoning this show! It was amazing! It took me 3 days to watch over 60 episodes and then I eagerly awaited more. This show deserves to be in the top four current ones alongside of Gravity Falls, Star V.S. the Forces of Evil, and Rick & Morty.

Steven Universe is a kind and thoughtful show. It features thoughtful and meaningful characters that are well thought out and planned. It also reflects on real life conflicts, like losing a dear friend or fighting between someone different, revealing that no one, not even Gems, are perfect. It also shows how an unlikely group deals with real life situations and the occasional time where mythical monsters and creatures get involved. This show is perfect for anyone who likes drama and cartoons. Along with the occasional comedy and jokes. - StevenU

THIS NEEDS TO BE HIGHER! It has a lot of sexuality equality and gender/ race equality too, which the world needs WAAAY more of. It might have even inspired my friend to come out as a lesbian! Please put this higher! :D

20 The Fairly Oddparents The Fairly Oddparents The Fairly OddParents is an American animated television series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon.

Dude, this deserves to be higher. It's lower than Adventure Time and Family Guy, which is weird in my opinion. I think it should be between 15-10. Very good show. - Ummagumma1969

This show is way better then dragon ball z which is not a cartoon it's anime there is a total difference between the two (anime is from Japan and cartoon is from America)

I hate that dog sparky it ruined fairly odd parents and don't forget that Chloe and SHARING the God parents dang this show sucks nowadays I miss this show before that dog I hope sparky gets worms and Chloe gets Ebola and they both DIE!

Poof was neutral to the show, it really went downhill with Sparky and Chloe.
