Best Cartoon Network Shows of 2013

The Top Ten

1 Adventure Time Adventure Time Adventure Time is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network. The series follows the adventures of a boy named Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio)—a dog with the magical power to change shape more.

Adventure time rules!


Easily the best show that cartoon network made here is my favorites
10: Fosters
9: Dexters Lab
8: Johnny Bravo
7: Ed Edd Eddy
6: Steven universe
5: Ok Ko
4 The Powerpuff girls (1998)
3 regular show
2 The amazing world of gumball
1 Adventure Time
plus Chowder, Codename, Samurai Jack, Teen Titans, Courage, and We Bare Bears

Looking at all the lists Adventure time is pretty controversial and everyone's opinion varies. This show was reccomended to me by a friend and I was skeptical watching the first few episodes but there are good episodes sprinkled around. The thing I really like is the hidden messages behind some episodes and how even kids will enjoy it regardless of it's "deep" morals. My favorites are probably the episodes that involve Marceline's past but that's just because they decide to go deeper into her history more than everyone else (I don't know why we can't learn more about the other characters though). Best part is that the show (at least tries to) avoid plot holes. The recent episodes make references to past episodes. Some things we question get answered on and there's even foreshadowing (wow! ). But sticking with it's episodic nature Adventure Time isn't confusing if you decide to skip some episodes or watch only one. It's not too confusing and sometimes you can just watch it for the heck ...more

2 Amazing World of Gumball

I love this show - iliekpiez

This is one of the shows I really love of all time. It's very attracting and viewers will love it. The show is a hilarious and entertaining type. All the characters in this show are funny so I like them all. I really like how they mix the realistic graphics from the animation graphics.

Some of the characters are just odd.

The Amazing World of Gumball is a funny, crazy, and ultimately entertaining show. Its colorful cast is hilariously relatable to any person who gets in its path. Even people like my parents find it funny.

3 Regular Show Regular Show Regular Show is an American animated television series created by J. G. Quintel for Cartoon Network that premiered on September 6, 2010. The series revolves around the lives of two friends, a blue jay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby—both employed as groundskeepers at a local park.

Show is full of excitement and is the best show hands down since the Grimm Adventures of Billy and Mandy. Unfortunately it is belittled by the fact it reaches to a slightly older audience on a mainly 7-12 year crowd.

Regular show should be first and adventure time 2

Top comedy quartz parchment shears anyone

I love this show better than the amazing world of gumball and adventure time adventure time had to much love and romance

4 Johnny Test Johnny Test Johnny Test is an American-Canadian animated television series produced by Warner Bros. Animation, for the first season, and Cookie Jar, for the remainder of the series.

I think the should bring back dragon ball z in the votes

Should bring back DBZ. it was better

Love this show! Funny, creative with amazing inventions!

This is a good show guys who cares about rip offs they are still different anyways we can't always come up with something new or original every time

5 Tom and Jerry Tales Tom and Jerry Tales Tom and Jerry Tales is an American animated television series starring the Academy Award-winning cat-and-mouse duo Tom and Jerry.

Tom and Jerry is the best because it was from old days and its a classic cartoon

This show is funny for everyone

Great animation, great storylines, great idea, what could go wrong?

It is best cause every one understand it regardless of language

6 Total Drama World Tour

I've watched this show since the beginning! I love all of characters and stuff about them! I recommend this show to anyone who cares to take the time to watch it. And I realize that it not for everyone, but it's awesome. I also know all of the songs from season 3 (the musical season. People should watch Total Drama Island, Total Drama Action, Total Drama Revenge of The Island, and the new season premiering in September 2013 Total Drama All-Stars!

Easily one of the best things to come out of Cartoon Network in the past years while the new selection is just awful. Sure, it's the same total drama thing all over again, but it's a system that works and will always be enjoyable

This should be way above Adventure Time.

Yeah... Probably this season is not as good as the first one, but is still amazing :D, with comedy, romance, action and, of course, DRAMAA!

7 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.

I'm probably gonna get flamed for this but... Dragonball Z is awesome. I agree this should be number 1 based on this list. However it's not the best anime out there. I'm tired of people always saying that DBZ is the best anime ever. True it was great for its time. But there is no best anime ever. Every anime is unique in it's own special way. Those who say DBZ is the best anime ever obviously haven't watched a lot of anime. I'm sorry for what I said. But I am kinda tired of everyone saying DBZ is the best, and ignoring every other anime out there.

This should be number 1! What are you idiots thinking by putting a dumb show like adventure time up there

You are total idiots. Dragon Ball Z is the best anime I've ever seen or even the best anime in history of man kind. How the hell this show isn't number 1

Don't you know that the greatest hero is goku and goku is in this episode! You would be mental if you don't put this up

8 Teen Titans GO! Teen Titans GO! 'Teen Titans Go!' is an American animated television series produced by Cartoon Network. The show follows a superhero group called the Teen Titans, and shows what happens when they go home and have silly adventures. This show is Cartoon Network's revival of the popular 2003-2006 American animated television more.

This Shouldn't Be Here. I Hate Teens Titans Go.

I really miss the original teen titans they are the only dc heroes I like.

Awesome it should be number 1!

Anyone who likes this just doesn't have a good taste in shows - yuma9009

I do like this show, not too much but still it can be pretty funny at times. Yet I also have a good taste in cartoons like samurai jack, gumball and steven universe - GGGofluckyourself

9 Young Justice Young Justice Young Justice is an American animated television series developed by Brandon Vietti and Greg Weisman for Cartoon Network.

Please bring back Young Justice, it's the best show I've ever watched

The show shouldn't be cancel like this. It should go on till the end for all the fans

The cancellation of this show broke my heart

Best Example of a modern cartoon ever

10 The Looney Tunes Show

It is an amazing show and funy to

11 Steven Universe Steven Universe Steven Universe is an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network. The show's based around a young boy by the name of Steven Universe, who is a hybrid of a gem and a human. He lives with his gem friends, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl.

Why isint this number one next to Gumball? This is a amazing show...
Here's a short story... At first, I thought this show was gonna be complete crap, I saw the pilot, then didn't like it, and I saw the advertisement on T.V. and I thought it was STUPID. But then, over the eatser holiday this year, I saw a couple post on Tumblr about Steven Universe so I decided to watch one episode. The I was like "Oh wow, this show is pretty good. Its also very funny! " So then, I decided to watch another episode... Then another, then another. Then I finally became obsessed with Steven Universe. And hell yeah. Hands down. PEARL is my ultimate FAVORITE. I love Pearl's voice. I'm IN LOVE with Garnet's accent. I love Amethyst's personality and I love how Steven is so caring. I love the animation, the characters, the plot... I absolutely love everything about this show!

This is one of the only good shows that isn't complete and random crap like uncle grandpa or regular show. It actually has an intense plot and amazing character development. It should be WAY higher up the list, and if you haven't watched Steven universe yet, I suggest you watch an episode (I recommend some episodes AFTER episode 30, that when things start getting intense and so the show won't look like crap)

Eh... I understand that Steven Universe wasn't the best in the first few episodes of season 1. But it has more deeper plots than what it seems.

This should trade this with Johnny Test. Johnny Test sucks. Steven Universe rocks!

12 Chowder Chowder Chowder is an American animated television series created by C.H. Greenblatt for Cartoon Network. The series follows an aspiring young child named Chowder and his day-to-day adventures as an apprentice in Chef Mung Daal's catering company.

Why is this on ten and not 9 places in front? It was creative at how they used textures behind the background and their clothes actually just an emptiness. Also, I just loved how their jokes worked. I'm watching the whole show on netflix.

I love it super duper much. I wish it would return on June 1st. A new season premeire, so. It'll be super exciting. I wouldn't be able to contain myself. Super great. Can you wait until then? Or maybe Boomerang will get a place for "Chowder". I'll tell Mr. Greenblatt (the creator of "Chowder") to bring it back to Cartoon Network.

This show is better than gumball

This should be 1st

13 Total Drama Island Total Drama Island Total Drama Island is a Canadian animated television series which premiered in Canada on Teletoon on July 8, 2007 and on June 5, 2008 in the U.S.

Did anyone notice that they changed the things that Lindsay said to Heather. She said that Heather is mean and bossy but it wasn't like that before. She was saying curse words to Heather that why everybody looked so supried. Even DUNCAN.

Total Drama Island is a very good classic cartoon. It, and it's other seasons are awesome!

One of the best in Cartoon Network

14 Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

Star Wars the Clone wars and The legend of Korra has been the only cartoons worth watching now a days that have a good story behind them. His should be number one.

Great show! Truly amazing

This is a great show. Star Wars fan should watch this.

Couldn't get a chance to see it? No probably. It is on Netflix.

The most heartless show I have ever watched

Abysmal after Life of Brian

Very funny and lots of adult humor

This show airs on fox and adult swim and is rated T.V.-14 so this really isn't a Cartoon Network show for ya

21 6Teen 6Teen

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

23 Bakugan
24 Sym-Bionic Titan Sym-Bionic Titan Sym-Bionic Titan is an American animated action science fiction television series created by Genndy Tartakovsky, Bryan Andrews, and Paul Rudish for Cartoon Network.

30 Naruto Naruto Naruto is an anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto. The manga was later adapted into a television anime, which was produced by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex. It premiered across Japan on the terrestrial TV Tokyo and other TX Network stations on October 3, 2002. The first series more.

Naruto has been one of my favorite shows because the story was properly set and gives people that emotional feel. Adventure time is just a bunch of random events that have no plot and absolutely not any complexity. Shows like Naruto help children find their way to proper adulthood, but Adventure time for some might just encourage others to do stupid things in public and disrespect others.

Naruto is one of my show that I like from the start he never gave up on his friend sasuke and he has one dream to be come the great hokage that why it should be on top and not adventure time

Naruto is the best show that people see it's better then adventure time because naruto save the world

Obviously naruto is the 2nd best show here naruto shippuden is way better though

34 Legends of Chima

Maybe if some of you guys dropped the idea of LoC being a Thundercats ripoff you would see the series qualities. The proof that graphics aren't that much if you have a nice story and environment.

MY friend was obsessed with it before he moved to Michigan..."sniffle"

Take This Show Off The List Please! I'm Sick Of People Liking This Disgusting Sorry Excuse Of A Cartoon.

This Show Was Awful. I'm Glad It Got Cancelled, But I'll Be Even More Glad If You Just Take This Show Off The List.

This Show Should NOT Be On This List! I Mean, I Could Give Somebody A Seizure. You Don't Want That Do You?
