The best, bar none. If you haven't watched it yet, do so.
Honestly, this series had an amazing plot as well as an immaculate character development. I absolutely love this show.
One of the most famous cartoon now days, and its totally worth it, have a well animation and really well worked story.
Gravity Falls is still one of my favorites and its just so amazing, I'm just sad it didn't last longer.
It has a surprisingly good story, it's pretty entertaining and the ending was amazing!
I wouldn't Recommend watching Season 1 because of the slow phase story and character Development
But worth watching in the end. Season 2 in the other hand was great, the filler episodes kinda bit reduced. would be great if there's no filler episodes
Season 3 is the 2nd best season of Steven Universe (in my opinion) it was a little bit rushed but it has a lot of great episodes on it which has one of my favorite episode.
Season 4 is the 3rd best Season of Steven Universe (in my opinion)
There's a lot that I want to talk about this but the story is kinda slow but still worth watching
Season 5 is the Best Season of Steven Universe right now this is the reason why I watched all season of Steven Universe. the story, The Plot Twist if the season 1,2,3,4 is bad on your opinions then I'm going say this again it's all worth it in the end.
Steven Universe is now my top 1 cartoon show in 2018
Don't forget the music in Steven Universe It's Amazing.
If your looking for a show with a lot of plot, This is the right cartoon to pick. Season 1 is mainly charecter development, season 2 has way more plot and lots of mystery, season 3 has even more plot and action, season 4 has lots of new themes and season 5 is more space themed.
Steven Universe has evidence of its plots in its surroundings. The main characters all contribute to the story and the emotions between them. This. Is. A. Masterpiece!
The first season sets up a lot of characters, and doesn't quite get story driven until season two. But when it gets good, it gets good.
Still remember how it all started as another of your run of the mill "random episode each week" and then over time it became this really serious linear storyline with deep character development.
Amazingly deep show with backstories for countless characters and locations that will have you pondering over each and every episode. Lots of deep emotion and character development as well.
Adventure time had one of ththr most complex story lines ever not just for a cartoon for a T.V. show over all there's so many different dimensions and plot lines and look holes.
The start of the new golden era in cartoon network, a really well done cartoon that deals with serious topics.
This show started lacking after The Battle For Mewni, but before that it is amazing. And even after it started lacking a bit, it's still one of my favorites.
This is my favorite show of all time. The last few episodes were amazing, and it has an incredible character development.
I was really surprised when I watched this show. Surprisingly solid character development and linearity.
The best cartoon show I've ever watched!
A dog with anxiety problems...well no but it seems like it, one of the old gold cartoons that will never get too old for anyone to stop enjoying it
Not only is this an amazing cartoon, it's also a horror comedy. Superb.
Great show, especially Season 1 with the mix of suspense, action and romance!
Young Justice season 1 will forever be the best animated series to exist, though the quality of the seasons diminish as they go on, they always promise complex plots and a different view into the world of DC. Season 1 is very character centric, so you'll get attached to the team and all of their adventures.
Definitely one of the best cartoon story lines and surprisingly it isn't all Japanified and with the big eyes and the stupid tear drops.
AMAZING! The most complex and thought-out plot I've ever seen in a cartoon.
One of the best, if you're looking for a sweet romantic development and comedy. This is the one to watch. My boi Ron managed to conquer friendzone.
This show had an epic plot. It had a story arc for every character. Characters developed as more and more seasons progressed. It's the BEST SHOW EVER. Why isn't this higher? The show was very complex, yet funny and lighthearted at the same time. Each character had their own fatal flaw which made them who they really are. And besides, who DOESN'T want to see the cute chemistry between Robin and Star as the series progressed?
Love this show. Each season is basically an arc for each character. Too bad s6 was cancelled.
Very complex plot, with an amazing character development.
I need season 6.
I like how this adaptation of Scooby Doo is different from the other ones.
This show was amazingly surprising and pretty shocking. And I loved it!
As far as surprisingly complex, this one takes the cake.
Hands down the best show ever! Deserves to be in the top 5.
Highly recommended! The Dub is well done.
The world manages to feel real and lived in through all the insanity that happens in the show
Speechless... this is the most incredible and intellectual comedy cartoon that's ever been created. This is what inspired me to do animation.
Um, last I checked, Sword Art Online is a Japanese anime series, not an American cartoon. Eh, either way, Sword Art Online actually has a good and decent story despite all the garbage the haters have been going on about with their salty SAO hate parade.
It does have a pretty decent plot.
Also, to those who say this is not a cartoon, I have some big news for you.
It is a cartoon, just a japanese one. They never said the results on this page were limited to western animation.
I love the comedy in this one, and the different type of animation all in one, that make gumball a good worked and done cartoon
This is the best show ever. It deserves to be in the top 10.
Although some of the episodes are filler or overly kid friendly, the show overall is well written and surprisingly mature in tone, content, and themes. The voice acting is excellent, the animation is wildly more advanced than anything else on this list, and I can happily report that Clone Wars is some of the best Star Wars content around, and the second best show on this list.
Great character development and insight into the universe of the Prequels. Honestly, it makes me like them a bit more than the Original trilogy, if only because they feel like add-ons to this amazing show!
How has this not been added yet. Amazing show.
Generator Rex was one of the biggest parts of my childhood, but I had only seen a little bit of it.
I recently went back and re-watched the entire thing, and still as a young adult, it did a wonderful job of invoking emotions and I still yearn for a cartoon to fill the hole in my heart that Generator Rex ending left.
