Top 10 21st Century Kids Shows
The Top Ten
SpongeBob is the best show on Nick. I have been watching it ever since the 1st episode. And I don't know what people are talking about when they say SpongeBob is annoying. His voice and laugh do not even phase me at all. My favorite character if Squidward because he is really funny and sarcastic.
He got annoying between seasons 5 and the first half of season 9. But SHUT UP if your including the first 3-4 seasons. Those seasons have similar content to "Rocko's Modern Life". - Kid_ethinederland
This show is idiotic. If you want to watch a decent show, turn on Gravity Falls, Avatar: the Last Airbender, Teen Titans (the original show, not the crappy remake), or even Danny Phantom. The only thing that leaves me thinking about SpongeBob is wondering how it managed to still be running.
You're half wrong. It used to be good, but now it's a load of crap, since 2008. - Goatworlds
Modern spongebob is terrible.
Seasons 1-4 are the best.
Season 5: Started to get a little bad.
Season 6-7: You will pass out if you watch these episodes. They are just so bad it makes people not want to watch it anymore.
Season 8: Started to go a little better.
Season 9: Improved:
Season 10-11, It felt like people were going to go back to season 1. - WorldPuncher47592834
Season 1: A strong start and many memorable episodes
Season 2: A treasure trove of golden episodes
Season 3: Needs no introduction :D
Spongebob Squarepants Movie: Greatest movie of all
Season 4: Still a great season with many funny and memorable moments
Season 5: Started to go a bit stale but the episodes were still enjoyable
Season 6: The breaking point
Season 7: The utter abomination that destroyed the series >:(
Season 8: No better than Season 7
Spongebob Movie, Sponge out of Water: Nowhere near as good as the first, but it’s still a great movie.
Season 9: The point where Nick were learning from their mistakes
Season 10: Funny and entertaining. A short season though
Season 11: About as great as the original :)
Season 12: I’m hoping it’s just like Season 11
SpongeBob SquarePants, really people? You would pick that idiot sponge over the ingenuity of Gravity Falls? Gravity Falls has intelligent yet flawed characters, a continuing plotline and plenty of action. I've got nothing against Phineas and Ferb, but that show has no continuity! Both Gravity Falls and Phineas and Ferb take place during a summer vacation, but while Phineas and Ferb's summer is seemingly endless with no plot linking the episodes, Gravity Falls's timeline actually progresses and you actually get the feel that Dipper and Mabel only have so long to achieve their summer goals.
Mysteries, Adventures, Strangeness. What more could I need? This is so cool this must be number 1 here!
The Scooby Doo series has the same plot, this is the same thing, except it has no dog, but the Mystery Shack is like Crystal Cove in shack form. - nelsonerico
Probably the only half decent show Disney has and probably the only reason they have people watching their channel.
Rip Off of Scooby Doo and Regular Show, it looks like Regular Show and has a plot like Scooby Doo minus the dog Scooby Doo, the Mystery Shack rips off Crystal Cove. - nelsonerico

Sponegbob has absolutely nothing on this show. You just stupid and immature if you think that spongebob is better than this. He is a very bad influence on kids. This show is inspiring, action packed, and has a great storyline. Spongebob has no story line. After you see the first season of this show, its beats out spongebob like a pitbull vs a chihuahua
I do agree that Avatar: The Last Airbender is better than SpongeBob SquarePants, even in SpongeBob SquarePants' golden years, but you obviously have jog seen SpongeBob SquarePants in the golden years of the show. - PeeledBanana
Avatar: The Last Airbender is inspirational and is totally addictive if you watch the first season you'll be itching to watch the next to seasons unlike the other children's shows like fairy odd parents or SpongeBob which do not make any sense at all. at least all the characters in this show have a story behind them.
Just the first season is enough for it to be no. 1 on this list much more all 3 great action, plot, humor, and twists. It blows the doors off of SpongeBob. The bare idea is so epic SpongeBob can't touch it. Plus it's the best show on Nickelodeon and SpongeBob is on Nickelodeon so there's another reason it's better. Combines epic manga style with classic humor
In what sick universe is Spongebob and Total Drama Island/Action higher on this list than Avatar: The Last Airbender?!?V 9 Comments
TOTAL DRAMA IS THE BEST SHOW EVER CREATED. IT is so cool I think I am going to die as whenever I watch it I am in hysterics and can barely breathe
It's amazing, but this is NOT for kids. - TheRedstoneWiz
I like this show more than anything!
Yeah thisis awesome - coolguy101V 5 Comments
Well yea its good but sometimes I do not like it
Fairly Odd Parents is the best cartoon in the world.
Best cartoon ever cosmo You need to see this
So lame bro makes me want to sleep🙄V 5 Comments
Regular Show is SO awesome! It has a good mix of a bit of adult humor, but more children excitement and humor for the kids to enjoy. the main characters being a blue jay and a raccoon, you can put pretty much everything in it (It's original motto was "Regular Show-its anything but"). It has got the classic touch of succeeding but then realizing you forgot something, or you fail and everything goes okay. Mordecai (the blue jay) and Rigby (the raccoon) are two slackers who get into large scenarios, and tend to get away with it from their angry, but sometimes cool boss, Benson. All the elements of this show make Regular Show the perfect T.V. series.
Regular show was the thing that got me through my middle school years. It's got this feel to it that makes it so fun to watch (it did decline in later seasons, though)
This show is just awesome in every way
This show deserves to be in the top 5. - Kid_ethinederlandV 4 Comments
This makes me inspired to use more often on my imaginations and believe that you can do anything. It is also funny and some are romantic.
Extremely creative and a perfect example of "it's so stupid its funny! "
The series is imaginative, fun and showcases something new every episode despite having a redundant story line.

Steven Universe, Gravity Falls, and Avatar the Last Airbender all need to be A LOT higher on this list! They all get really deep and not to mention hilarious
Did you know that Paradox was written as an inspiration from "Invader Zim". These 2 shows have so much in common. - Kid_ethinederland
This and Avatar: The Last Airbender both need to be at the top of the list. This show is amazinggg. It is the first Cartoon Network show to be created by a woman, it has one of the first LGBT couples shown on a "kids" show, and breaks countless other barriers. Great plot, action, humor, CHARACTERS *feels*, and everything in between.
Love love love this show.
How on earth is this so low?!? This show is absolutely beautiful!V 5 Comments
Pokemon is my favorite show right next to total drama island.
Don't listen to the haters! Pokemon is THE BOMB!
Love it! Kinda wish I had a jiggly puff. She is just adorable!
The episode racing to a big event is my 2nd favorite T.V. show episode behind band geeks (Spongebob)V 8 Comments
This show is so good that it should have never ended. I mean come on a boy that is smart and build weapons, now that's a show I will always watch
I am still pissed at Nick for cancelling it... Very underrated.
This destroys Phineas and Ferb
Are you going to finish that cwasoun?
I just want to see it back running again - Afb2004
SUCH A GOOD SHOW! The music is inspiring and the story is magnificent! If you haven't seen the show, it's only ten episodes and it will change your life!
best - MikaBeeWall
It’s not just the best kids show not just the best T.V. show ever, but the best work of fiction I’ve ever seen ever
One of The Greatest Show Ever
Marceline is my little flower
This should be number 1!
It's d's best
One of the best Cartoon Network shows ever made!
One of Disney's few succeseses, and probably their only live one.
Love this show so sad it ended
My kids love this show
This is the best comedy series of my chilhoodV 3 Comments
Best show ever! - WinchesterGirl26
Nope! - Goatworlds
No! - Neonco31
New ones coming out in April 2017
Best show in Cartoon Network, even better than TAWOG.
How is this not in the top ten? And where is Zim? I must have ZIM!
I loved it. - Goatworlds
Nice - Markerzegamer
It Should be In First
I HAD TO PUT TEEN TITANS ON THE LIST MYSELF, MAKES ME SO MAD, THAT WAS THE BEST CARTOON SHOW EVER. IT WAS SO awesome. COME BACK ROBIN, WE MISS YOU SO MUCH.
I loved this show, so great way better than the stupid chibi style one. Which, by the way, is so gr I hate it sooo much it's a total change.
So weird,yet so funny
Why is this 22nd? It should at least be in the top 3. It won Kids Choice Awards three times.
This show sucks, two girls dancing around like stupid cats, racism, laugh tracks & sexual content, what has nick come up with.
Its 36 now of febuary 28th 2016
I don't like or love this show
The most awesome penguins in the world..
This was my absouloute fave!
Get this to the top 10, this show is underatted.
One of the BEST shows Cartoon Network had to offer!
I don't even know why this isn't in here, it should be up there with SpongeBob.
Good storyline, and will be WAY better in 2014.
I TOTALLY AGREE! I have, however seen some negative reviews saying it's dumb because it's a kids shows. Screw people who think that, the only bad thing about this show is the horrible flash animation that started recently. BUT STILL, IT RULES!
Forget Sesame Street, Arthur is the best on PBS.
What's with the Jamaican music?
Hahaha it might make no sense but its still funny!
I grew up with this show and I loved it.
Even though I may be to old for it, Elmo still makes me smile!
Nope, this should be worst
Shut up haters
This show was classic it was perfect
Basically my childhood!
That's SO RAVEN WAS THE BOMB IT WAS AN AWESOME SHOW
Ah the idiots saying Nickelodeon going downhill since this was cancelled even though this cartoon is crap.
Why was it cancelled? WHY?!
The creator got fired & Nick started going downhill since this.
Probably my favorite show
Come back Zim! COME BACK!
I RATHER VOTE FOR TEEN TITANS, BUT I HAD TO PUT IT ON THE LIST INSTEAD, AS WELL AS NARUTO AND TRANSFORMERS, SO I couldn't VOTE FOR THEM.
This was made in 1991
I can't believe this wasn't on the list! Best T.V. show EVER!
Hilarious and full of adventure and fun!
This Show Shouldn't Be On This List!
Yes. Oh my, I screamed when I saw this! It was epic
It's good except they allowed a soap opera like this for children, while this should be more teen & adult oriented.
HOUSE OF ANUBIS SHOULD BE #1
Love Victorious. Awesome show.
That show was Nick's idea of Hannah Montana, or any Disney Channel star, glad it got cancelled.
