Anyone who says it's just a dumb kids show has clearly never watched it and seen all the clever adult themes and jokes I.e an entire episode about trying to get away with murder

I still like this show at age 20, some episodes still make me laugh, the fun song still makes me laugh, and chocolate!, and wah wah wah, will you cut that out, and some other funny scenes

My Dad used to watch this show until he got tired of it, & why, because the new seasons were getting so bad.

2 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

@Kiteretsunu It actually is for kids, it's aimed at kids though it earned itself an adult fanbase. Just because it earned adult fans, that doesn't make it an adult show, I don't remember seeing any swearing and boobs in that show.

Surprisingly, it had amazing detail as a Nickelodeon show, which is why adults like the show. There's a possibility that it's the only Nick show to end. Avatar would soon have a spin-off titled The Legend of Korra.

I don't think it's only for kids. It has a pretty good story for adult viewing too.

3 Adventure Time Adventure Time is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network.

Adults enjoy the show for promoting creativity.

5 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.

Only 34, but I love those. They used to show them at 11 am on Saturdays back in the 80's

BEST SHOW EVER! When I was six years old, it was the first day of elementary school and I was looking for something to watch while I ate my breakfast. I remembered watching My Little Pony (the older versions) when I was really little and not really getting into it, but I saw this new and updated version on Netflix and decided to give it a shot. I finished the first episode before I had to go to school, and I was HOOKED. The entire day, I was just thinking, "What's gonna happen?" because the episode left off on a total cliffhanger. Now I'm fourteen years old and still completely hooked. On the first day of high school, I watched the first episode again (for like the 20th time by now) and nostalgia hit me so hard. First day of elementary school, first day of high school. I have a special attachment to this show and totally recommend it to anyone who's willing to give it a shot. Never judge a book by it's cover.

Rocko's Modern Life was a show I watched as a kid on Nickelodeon, and it was always one of my favorites. It's only gotten more interesting to me as I've gotten older; the jokes that were WAY too adult for a child audience, the wonderfully wacky animation, and the characters themselves make Rocko one of the best kids' T.V. shows that you can watch as an adult.

I watched Rocko's Modern Life on Paramount+ and I can understand the adult humor used on the show. This show didn't age that much badly.

Adults watch it for nostalgia and the jokes they snuck past the censors.

22 K.C. Undercover K.C. Undercover is an American sitcom developed for Disney Channel, created by Corinne Marshall and executive produced by Rob Lotterstein.
23 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.

I love the Flintstones. The only problem is, this show was NOT originally made for kids. It aired at prime time, so the whole family watched it, including the adults. That's why there's so much sophisticated humor in there.

So while this show IS great and lovable, I'm not sure if it really belongs on THIS list.
