I couldn't stop laughing. This has to be the best show to ever come on T.V., and if not, it is definitely the best show to ever come on Cartoon Network. - nallimcamybloc

This cartoon show was made to be funny for both kids and adults. Bad animation, but when I watched it, I found it hilarious. Definitely #3 in the top 10. - vmacmil-1

Ed, Eddy is the best animated television series ever! - vmacmil-1

Thank you Ed Edd n Eddy 10 years thank you

This show is awesome! It's funny and it should be the best.

This should be number one not My Little Pony. - cosmo

Awesome show, sad that the theme song changed though

Love it! It should be top 5.

24 Death Note Death Note Death Note is a Japanese television drama series based on the manga series of the same name by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. The show is centered around Light Yagami a promising highschooler and aspiring detective with a strong sense of "justice".

Death Note without a doubt is the greatest show ever. Its also the most under rated show. All those guys watching Prison Break should start seeing this and make a judgment themselves - wtvrinc

Epic. Really, it's depth and story have no words to describe it. Death note deserves better than this. A must watch. See it and you'll know its great.

Its a masterpiece I think...
The script is oriqinaL - rebeLLious

Emo? Scene? Goth? Darling, this is the best anime you will ever watch! - NasifSinha

26 Daria Daria Daria is an American animated television series created by Glenn Eichler and Susie Lewis Lynn for MTV.

OMG! I loved Daria... why did they ever have to stop showing that show. MTV sucks... they have taken off or don't show much of or any of the good shows anymore. Now we're just stuck with drama filled "fake" shows like Laguna Beach, The Hills, Super Sweet 16 and more.

I almost can't describe how much I love this show and how much I hate MTV for cancelling it...

27 Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is an anime series adapted from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga by Hiromu Arakawa.

The storyline is absolutely amazing, and there is plenty of character development. If you like Animes like Baccano, you'll love this one.

I have always liked anime but I don't watch it as much as I used too this show has an incredible soundtrack and animation. Digimon, Soul Eater and this are my favorite anime.

Good show. - Skullkid755

28 King of The Hill King of The Hill King of the Hill is an American animated sitcom created by Mike Judge and Greg Daniels that ran from January 12, 1997 to May 6, 2010 on Fox.

Though I give the Simpson's the title to the animated throne, this one will always be my favorite.

What why is
This awesome T.V. show down here!?!?!

This is the best show ever! This should be higher.

Terrible Animation.Spinoff is better.

30 Phineas and Ferb Phineas and Ferb Phineas and Ferb is an American animated comedy-musical television series.

For me it has both the wacky humour of Roald Dahl and imagination of the "Pinky and the Brain". I love shows that have their own set of laws, hence every episode can be realistic according to the shows rules but unrealistic according to our own. - StratThinker

Whys is it so far down! This is one of the best animated show ever.. the characters are so likable and the plot so complicated yet seemingly simple.. sigh..

You two deserve better. Like around 15 to 20. Not that great, but watching this was a blast.

I love this show! #2 ONLY behind spongebob.

31 Animaniacs Animaniacs Steven Spielberg Presents Animaniacs is an American animated comedy television series produced by Amblin Television label in collaboration with Warner Bros.

Probably the most insane cartoon I have ever seen. It was silly and entertaining and even had some educational values. The adult humor of this show was so well hidden that children didn't detect it, making it one of the most ideal cartoons for both kids and adults. We really need shows like this.

Who does not love the animaniacs they have top be in the top 10

This is the most wonderfully insane cartoon since Rocky and Bullwinkle. Its smart, funny and appeals to kids, while adults life at the more off the wall comments

I was going to put Family Guy but Pokemon holds so many fond memories of the 90's for me. It was one of the breathrough Japanese cartoons along with DragonBall Z. It was just such an exciting and magical concept. - bigtanga05

Pokemon is the best ever, even though it might seem a little kidish for a 15 year old to watch. Raelly, though, who doesn't know what Pokemon is? It's popular even if you never watch it. - ToPh

Pokémon is the best...

35 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

My god the turtles for Michael bays 2014 film are hideous, it's a miracle I didn't puke.

Going down to my grandmas and watching this with my brothers. this should be #1. sad to see they are ruining my childhood with the new movie.

Yes you are right

What! It is one of the best T.V. series ever made. It ought to be there in the Top 10.

39 The Legend of Korra The Legend of Korra The Legend of Korra is an American animated television series that aired on the Nickelodeon television network from 2012 to 2014. It was created by Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino as a sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender, which aired from 2005 to 2008.

The legend of korra is a good show. It explains the origin of the avatar and has a lot more action in it. It can never be better than the last airbender but it isn't bad.

Show's low down because it has to split votes with its Last Airbender cousin, and it gets a lesser share of votes despite being similar quality.

This show is incredible. One of the best takes on overcoming mental illness I have ever seen.

Whoever wrote the 4 the comment should shut up because korra is awesome

40 Cowboy Bebop Cowboy Bebop Cowboy Bebop is a 1998 anime television series animated by Sunrise featuring a production team led by director Shinichirō Watanabe, screenwriter Keiko Nobumoto, character designer Toshihiro Kawamoto, mechanical designer Kimitoshi Yamane, and composer Yoko Kanno.

Fun series at the surface, but has some deep characterization going on under the surface. There's more to this series than most writing for American television. I think a good show should tell me a story, not just distract me pointlessly. - dataless

Great characterization, great music, good animation, intriguing plots to the episodes. I have absolutely no problems with this show.

Underrated. Better than DragonBall Z and Yu-Gi-Oh!
