Everything is amazing in the clone wars movie and T.V. series, the animation is fantastic and the characters awesome. This show deserves to be number one!

3 Young Justice

By far the best cartoon that has ever been made; complex storyline, great graphics!

Best superhero show of all time

Young justice is so amazing!

Arguably the most well written, and well plotted, American action cartoon of the past 10-15 years. Very well acted and animated with great characters, fights, and stories with real weight to them. One of the best comic book adaptations of all time, animated or otherwise, and the best thing put out by D.C. or marvel in 10 years. Period.

4 Teen Titans Teen Titans Teen Titans is an American animated television series created by Glen Murakami, based on the DC Comics characters of the same name.

This show is crazy action. Robin can beat slade with his kung fu. Starfire can make laser come from her eyes or hands. Cyborg killed brother blood like crazy with one arm. Beast boy can turn into any animal and he's my favorite character next to raven. Raven can control anything she's awesome she's my favorite character she killed trigon the most powerful thing in their universe.

Best Teen Superhero show ever.
Even though she is the darkest and most had-to-please character on the team, I think Raven has some of the funniest lines in the show.

5 Dragon Ball Z Dragon Ball Z Dragon Ball Z is a Japanese anime television series produced by Toei Animation. Dragon Ball Z follows the adventures of Goku who, along with the Z Warriors, defends the Earth against evil. The action adventures are entertaining and reinforce the concept of good versus evil. Dragon Ball Z teaches valuable more.

Dragonball Z is the best action cartoon. Ever. Widely imaginative, intriguing stories, over the top fighting scenes, & the quality of the animation itself is great (considering it came out in the 80's). It doesn't get better than DBZ.

This is truly an ageless and timeless classic. This show is so universal in how it appeals to not only kids, but also teens and adults. The characters are so well developed and charming, and they give us reasons to both laugh and cry. It's a fascinating universe, with such an incridibly trilling story, that you can't possibly avoid being captured by. Nothing beats Dragon Ball Z!

Dragon ball z is the greatest cartoon ever the fact that's not in the top ten is is unreasonable it should be one or two

6 Justice League Unlimited

I got into ut late. But enjoyed it for the most part. I thought it was short, like most american cartoons, for the amount of material they had in the comics.

7 Kim Possible Kim Possible Kim Possible is an American animated children's television series created by Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle for Disney Channel.

It's a action cartoon for people who like butt kicking women. And it is awesome.

12 The Spectacular Spider-Man

Good lord this is great. It had a unique art style and a pretty good look on the whole Spider-Man thing, I really enjoyed it and am disappointed that it ends so abruptly but it's a good watch if you are desperate.


13 Batman the Animated Series

Personally, this is my favourite show of ALL time. Ever.

One of the best written animated superhero shows ever. Very dark too.

14 Justice League of America

Justice league is the KING of action cartoons, and the GOD of all superhero cartoons (and Justice League Unlimited obv). Characters, development, complexity, animation, plot... And every episode even has classical literary, philosophical, and/or mythological subtext. Genius.

15 X-Men

Best american cartoon ever. And all the movies are based on the episodes.

There's a character that everyone can relate to in some way!

Best show ever. I've watch nearly all these series.

27 Iron Man: Armored Adventures
28 Voltron Force

Wow,I actually forgot about this.I'm not sure why.

29 Red vs Blue

Funny and action pack and I Don't even like halo yet I love this show more than most anime

30 SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron

Oh my god, if you want to literally get up and randomly fist bump out of pure awesomeness, then this is the show for you. The best cartoon you've ever seen, STARRING A COUPLE OF CATS! Who kick ASS! So hold on to your seat, because you might just pass out because you can't handle the G's!

Simply the best show ever... brilliant concept and characters

31 Bakugan: New Vestroia

Loved it, must be number 1

Underrated, must watch

36 The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes

It was awesome - Triceratops

37 Monsuno

Most underrated on the list

38 Generator Rex Generator Rex Generator Rex is an American science fantasy action animated television series created by Man of Action for Cartoon Network.

I agree especially sad they discontinued it because season 3s ending practically set up a new season: even though the evos are gone nanites are still in every living thing the consortium and the pack escaped the cure event the alpha was seen escaping its prison, and a guy who looked like doctor fell from episode 19 is destroying a city in a giant robot. This is my problem with Cartoon Network they are quick to get rid of good shows like this, secret Saturdays, and sym bionic Titan and replace them with crap like Clarence, and teen titans go!

Should of stayed on Cartoon Network longer much better than adventure time regular show and Ben 10

39 Inazuma Eleven

It is the best cartoon I have ever viewed it is based on soccer and offensive and defensive moves of players are Awesome!

An epic show. Should be number 1 or.2
