The Top Ten

1 Ed, Edd n Eddy Ed, Edd n Eddy Ed, Edd n Eddy is a Canadian-American animated comedy television series created by Danny Antonucci for Cartoon Network, and the sixth of the network's Cartoon Cartoons. The series revolves around three preteen boys: Ed, Edd "Double D," and Eddy—collectively known as "the Eds"—who live in a suburban ...read more.

This show... It's my childhood. When I was little, the only show that I can remember consistently watching was this. It made fantastic points on adolescent life and related to me in ways that most cartoons simply couldn't. I'll admit that I cried after the final episode rolled its credits, but they were happy man tears and I proudly put this show up with the best of them.

I think ending it was a good choice because it would have taken the SpongeBob path. - Skullkid755

I love Cartoon Network a lot and there's only a few shows these days that I consider to be good on it but if there was one show that topped all of them from the start, it was no doubt Ed Edd n Eddy. This show was my childhood and I still continue to watch it because its still funny to us and I feel like it was just as much for kids as it was to teens and young adults.

Yeah. Why can't we have reruns of Ed, Edd, n Eddy instead of that overrated Adventure Time? Screw all the new shows. Ed, Edd, n Eddy is the best Cartoon Network show ever. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The most funny show ever. The Plank is really best friend of johnny. The devotion towards money of Eddy is really powerful that make show ever lasting comedy. The Kevin is perfect rival. The show that really take me back to my innocent childhood. Even today this show if my most likely show if Cartoon Network. - jigar.myself

I grew up on this show. This show was kinda the face of Cartoon Network for a long time. It represented the childhood of 90s and early 2000s kids in a perfect way. Despite its outlandish antics, I can speak for most kids of that era that it in its own wacky way it was very relatable to us. This was Cartoon Network's answer to the juggernaut lineup Nickelodeon was putting out there. Ed, Edd n Eddy was probably the SpongeBob of Cartoon Network.

2 Courage the Cowardly Dog Courage the Cowardly Dog Courage the Cowardly Dog is an American animated horror comedy television series created by John R. Dilworth for Cartoon Network as part of the network's Cartoon Cartoons block.

This show is awesome, Courage has all these dramatic ways getting scared. The story is not bad at all either. It's hilarious!

This show actually has a heart! People say it's scary, but some of the episodes are very emotional and some can be humorous as well!

Courage the Cowardly Dog show has the most subtle humor and irony of all cartoons out there. Wonderful plot, music and graphics!

Great CN show. - Fullwalking2

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.

Regular Show is full of both comedy and adventure/action! Even the name of the show is funny! Regular Show: It's Anything But... Mordecai and Rigby are hilarious! I've seen every episode so far! My favorite episode so far is season 2 episode 1 - Ello Gov'nor. Great work! Keep it up!

I was born in 2001, where I grew up watching shows like Dexter's Laboratory, Ed, Edd and Eddy, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Codename: Kids Next Door, The Power Puff Girls, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy; the CLASSICS. I loved them. KND was just awesome with blender machine guns, Battle-Ready Armor (B.R. A) and a HUGE treehouse. Dexter's Lab had the brains and cool tech that fascinated me back then and the evil scientist accent even though he's from an American family. Courage with aliens, Muriel and that creaky old windmill. Like I said. Classics. Then they all stopped. 2009. 2010. Everything went downhill, but it was simply the slow transition between eras. Adventure Time popped up. Loved it. The Amazing World of Gumball. Hilarious! But the truth is, I never watched Regular Show until one late night when it was on. Then I didn't get what the heck was meant to be happening. Some lollipop guy with a huge head got mistaken for a professional wrestler, and a bird and raccoon helped ...more

That was my first episode too! It's called "Really Real Wrestling". - evil7

This show came out of nowhere and destroyed what I thought was possible with cartoons. Besides Adventure Time and Phineas and Ferb, all the good cartoons were from the nineties. Then Regular Show went beyond the nineties mold of greatness to prove not only that animation was still alive, but it is still improving. The idea of the main characters of a cartoon as boring, lazy, 20-something-year-old roommates at a dead end job as park custodians is the most creative and simple working concept for a cartoon. There is no funnier 15 minutes of television than "Caffeinated Concert" except maybe "This Is My Jam" - mikeford

Best one ever

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.

Oh my gosh I can't believe that this wasn't first. Or even in the top ten. This show is so unique: it made me rofl more times than I can count, but at the same time it has serious storylines, deep character exploration, and a level of maturity that kid-friendly shows rarely have. It deals with mature themes like loss, revenge, betrayal, and many others, and if you squint you will see parallels of subjects like drug use and racism. It is just such a good show, and the five main characters are all so completely different yet come together for a cause. There's something in this cartoon for everyone.

this show was goofy but funny and had some really good serious episode too

This show is AMAZING! It had great characters, excellent action scenes, and let's not forget to mention that it's just downright hilarious!

5 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 ...read more.

I LOVE this show. After the canceling of my two favorite shows Teen Titans and Young Justice I really needed to find a new show. I love Adventure Time because even though it seems like it has no plot or anything to it, it does. If you watch all the episodes, then you will realize that it really does have a deeper meaning to it then just a comical cartoon. I love that it's created in a post-aptolictic world and if you really begin thinking about it, it really has a sad plot. All of the creatures are all mutated except for Finn (and Betty). I love that there's collapsed buildings and cars and some episodes flash back to before the Candy Kingdom or any of that. I know there will always be people who hate the show, but compare it to the other shows on Cartoon Network right now. It will never beat out the older shows, but it has more of a plot than these newer shows.

This show is really awful to watch. I give it 0/100

Super Mario bros. And legend of Zelda is better and original than adventure time. Adventure time sucks forever.

Super Mario Bros and Legend of Zelda Have Nothing to do With Adventure Time, so shut up, Hater.

This, Steven Universe, and Teen Titans Go all got nominated for Emmy Awards. Luckily, this won over TTG! - Cartoonfan202

6 Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends is an American animated television series created by Craig McCracken for Cartoon Network Studios.

This is one of the best story lines I've seen it's so hilarious. The show is really random and interesting.

This is the most awesome show that has ever graced this Earth. The most amazing humor, awesome characters, and the best art work ever. I love this show

Very weird but very entertaining group of characters. Each characters personality oddly fits well with the whole show.

I love bloo

7 The Powerpuff Girls The Powerpuff Girls The Powerpuff Girls is an American animated television series created by animator Craig McCracken for Cartoon Network. The main characters of this show are Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. The show is about the Professor Utonium creating three little superhero girls that save the day from villains. ...read more.

The Powerpuff Girls is probably the best cartoon network show ever made. There's funny characters, even villains. The only thing that I remembered from my childhood is I used to watch The Powerpuff Girls everday.

This was the cartoon that changed the way I felt about being a girl all together. I was quite a lonely kid growing up and I've never had any real friends nor sisters. So sometimes being a tomboy was tough because I still liked ponies and mermaids along my little animals and cute stuff. But being the only sister sometimes made me feel lonely and when you have three brothers who did everything together and singling you out, it was hard for me. It was hard for me to like something that someone else would pick up on liking.

That all changed when I saw this show at just 10. This cartoon helped me through hard times. During long days of struggling and not being able to sit still in school to times when people would humiliate and hurt me with the things they've said and done. So whenever I'd relax in the evening to some Cartoon Network or come home from school or wake up on weekends in time for the Powerpuff Girls to be on, my mood constantly changed with a huge smile on my face from ...more

This is the best cartoon it has little super heroines fighting bad guys and saving their time and going through 5 year old stuff their are a lot of positive role models like Blossom Bubbles Buttercup

Best CN show ever

8 Dexter's Laboratory Dexter's Laboratory Dexter's Laboratory is an American comic science fiction animated television series created by Genndy Tartakovsky for Cartoon Network, and the first of the network's Cartoon Cartoons. The show is about a kid scientist named Dexter that has a sister named Dee Dee that keeps breaking into his lab.

This show was plain amazing because it was so simple at times but still so funny how didi wrecks everything some point in the show and how dexter flips out it was plain comedy.

Alright. I just want to know why the hell this isn't number one. I mean I live E but not as much as this. This is just classic. Way better than most of the Overrated mediocre stuff in front of this. Pretty much all of them except E and Tom and Kerry and maybe fosters

Every younger brother knows why this show is so awesome!

Dexter's Lab was my childhood!

9 The Amazing World of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball is a British-Australian-German-American-Irish children's animated television series created by Ben Bocquelet for Cartoon Network.

Yeah, this show is awesome! I like the part when miss simian and principal brown jumped off the window, it is one of the best cartoons ever made! A T-rex as the school bully, more awesome! One of the funniest parts is when Gumballs brain beats the hell out of Principal Brown! This show is so amazing that it should have its own movie and special eps.

The show is probably one of the best animated shows ever in Cartoon Network history. Story wise it's a hilarious sitcom. I'm surprised it's so low on the list, its well in the Top 10. The characters are funny, the music is epic, and the only problem is that its episodes are way too short.

I LOVE THIS SHOW SO MUCH! How could anyone hate this show. It's totally amazing. I watch it every time it comes on T.V..

It should be ther first please do that...I'm the best fan of amazing world of gumball so u fakers stop commenting...#number 1 fan

10 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.

First of all, it has Rebecca Sugar. She is most famous for writing Marceline's songs from Adventure Time. This automatically makes it cool. Second of all, this cartoon easily made up for that piece of trash, Uncle Grandpa. Not to mention that, so far, it takes on an interesting style of animation, amazing music, and wonderful humor. In my opinion, this can be remembered along with Regular Show and Adventure Time as one of the greatest cartoons from this era.

I swear all the commercials on Cartoon Network makes all their shows look retarded, and when I saw the commercial of this show I was like another stupid show like a adventure time that always talks about hams and fat baskets, but when I saw the two episodes the return and jail break while my sister was watching it I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. I mean the theme song itself lured me in it's so good and all the songs that are sung by the gems and Steven are good and their voices are amazing. Though at times this show can be a comedy it can also be an action show and possibly a drama and has romance. Also this show has so many mysteries whenever you know about the world of the gems you get more questions that you need to watch more episodes to find the answers. The animation and the voice acting and the fight scences are also amazing. We might have stupid shows now on the CW like Clarence and Uncle Grandpa but just remember that there is also Steven Universe and that show is ...more

Steven universe is awesome it the only thing I can talk and think about. Now I feel like it's my entire existence. I would die with out Steven universe. I can't sleep without watching a new episode. The songs are beautiful, I have them all in my play list. Especially Stronger than you I literally played it 3 hours in a row and still love it. If I we the Judge of Cartoon Networks awards I would give them all to Rebecca Sugar and her Crewniverse. I would give all 6 awards for: beautiful songs, cute cartoon, best stories, memorable story boards, organized crew, and lovely voices. I watched all the episodes. I even was Sardonyx for Halloween. When ever I watch Steven Universe I would never blink. Season 1 was pretty AWESOME and season 2 was the BOMB. I have the 2015 Steven Universe Guide book. and now I'm getting all the volumes for the comics. Every time I hear their loving voices they brighten my day. I have Steven Universe all over my I pad, my room, and my life. My friend would come ...more

I still can't believe that people hate this show. I mean, this is nearly the Cartoon Network version of Invader ZIM (ironically, the voice of Billy was also the voice of ZIM)! Of course, that's not because it has a similar plot line, but because it has dark humor. It's funny for both kids and adults. Also, Grim teaches us that even if your friends use you, don't listen to them if they are mean, and make the best of friendship. It's too bad that this show was cancelled.

The was so morbid at times but still it was so funny it was like the first cartoon at the time that took slapstick comedy to a whole new level

12 Codename: Kids Next Door

I can't think of any other show that is 100000% better as an adult.

The show is fueled by a child's perspective and understanding of the world, and it is exaggerated into a CSI world. It's a secret organization of Kids fighting adult tyranny.

Think of it as a G-rated animated version of Lord of the Flies but it's not a sausage fest, and there is slightly less killing.

The show had very memorable and likable characters, multiple plot twists, and best of all it was funny. Even as an adult it is genuinely, unironically funny.

"What's a Bra"
"And What's she TRAINING for"

It brings you back to those good old days of being an innocent kid, and as an adult you can really appreciate the satire and allegories in the show.

The series finale is by far the best series finale of any show on CN. It is surprisingly sophisticated for something that came out of Cartoon Network. While it's not the most satisfying, at the same time that's kind of what makes ...more

This show was practically my whole childhood.
KND had an amazing plot, great characters, and gave kids an amazing imagination! The episodes were amazing and gripping, once you started you can't stop. The ending was probably the best finale ever, and I hope they can restart with new episodes, maybe from the children of the original characters and their adventures!
The ideas for the weapons are amazing, like turning a simple blender into a machine gun! Everything a kid could ever dream of folds out before your eyes, even if your older this show takes you back to that time you spied on your parents and sprayed your sibling with a water gun!

The show deserves a spot because it was so cool and creative of how they used simple things like candy and blow-dryers as weapons and the ideas they had were so unique

I loved that when I was a kid! Watching it again makes me feel... old.

13 Looney Tunes 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.

Looney Tunes are the greatest cartoons on the planet. They are way above anything else on this list. With classic characters, admit it you can name most characters and the characters are the best Cartoon characters in the world.

The looney tunes is the most hilarious show ever the funniest for me is porky the best episode was when the African sand spider and when it went on porky pigs face an the other characters daffy, bugs, lola, yosemite sam and loads more best show in a million years better than amazing world of gumball by far! Go looney tunes yeah!

This list is WRONG! Regular Show, Ed Edd and Eddy are mindless enough that I could make it on my own and it would be just as good. The new looney tunes, the Looney Tunes Show, Is very funny. Especially when Daffy does a "Daffy Move" (Something stupid).

The Looney Tunes Show is total crap, it hardly has the slapstick moves that the original classic has and it's just like the new Family Guy, it sucks, Looney Tunes got ruined. - nelsonerica

Yeah, Cartoon Network really screwed this show in 2004, Seriously, How did this show get screwed so bad? It is one of Genndy's best cartoon ever made, but what I think has to be the best performance goes to Phil LaMarr. So please Cartoon Network, bring this show back, and gives this show a real run, Something that The Simpsons didn't deserve. I'm looking for Cartoon Network's apologize through.

Samurai Jack was a very underrated show, and you should watch it.

Best Cartoon Network show ever. I don't really like Adventure time or
Regular show that much. The only Cartoon Network shows I like are the
Old ones like Powerpuff Girls, Ben 10, and Samurai Jack, and all the old
Ones. The new ones are not really good, in my suggestion.

Season 5 converted this gold to platinum

15 Tom & Jerry

I have watched almost all the programs in cartoon network and I think tom and jerry is the only one which is worth being in the first place...
It is because it is the only program that I watch even now (my present age is 18)... It is always new to me eventhough I have seen all the episodes like a 100 times..
It is the only program that is still being casted in CN...

I love this show it is really funny even it is an old show

I have watched Tom and Jerry ever since I was a little kid. I'm 13 and I still love Tom and Jerry. It was one of the best shows that Cartoon Network ever made besides Samurai Jack, The Amazing World of Gumball, Teen Titans, and more. It was great seeing a smart mouse beating up a not so bright cat. AHH! Those were the Days!

My childhood revolved around watching the iconic cat and mouse cartoon on cloudy afternoons. 6 year old me loved this show and I still love it to this day. I can't understand why this show isn't in the #1 spot.

16 Johnny Bravo Johnny Bravo Johnny Bravo is an American animated television series created by Van Partible for Cartoon Network, and the second of the network's Cartoon Cartoons.

What?! Johnny Bravo is legendary!

Please put johnny bravo on the top ten it's better than all of them

Definitely one of the best cartoons that was ever aired. It's a shame the channel formerly known as CartoonNetwork has stepped down to low quality cartoons such as Adventure Time and Regular Show. I guess animators and storywritersjust aren't what they used to be. Johnny Bravo should be in the top ten.

I love the theme song

17 Pokemon Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.

ALL THOSE WHO SEE THIS, THIS IS TRUE STUFF. I used to watch pokemon and I kept watching until black and white. The best to me was either battle frontier or galactic battles. All the pokemons were great until black and white. I think the creators are running out of ideas and that's when your suppose to end the show. Its had a good run for about 14 years! That's enough.
Like I was saying, black and white is awful and I have been watching pokemon since the beginning so I would know. The new characters are really stupid but. One because iris always calls ash a little kid and she is very irritating and two because cilan is always going on about how everything works out to be a perfect "recipe" and THEY ABSOLUTELY DO NOT WANT ASH TO WIN A POKEMON LEAGUE. With all the great pokemon he has he should be sweepinng the competition like is nothing.
I heard there is a new pokemon coming and I've seen it. It seems really stupid as pokemon keeps getting worse

I loved every episode in every season in Pokemon's history in anime...
I think best wishes generation is generally improving the show's quality (i think even better that the unique first seasons...
Pokemon forever!

Eh, not a big fan. I have nothing against the fandom, this just my opinion. I loved as a kid. It wasn't the first series that I started with but the third or so. I don't remember. Then I found the great wonder ours channel that is now destroyed, boomerang. Then I realized that it was like I was watching the same cartoon. The show has changed at all. It's the same thing. Ash and pikachu go to different areas and go town to town with his side kicks and they win tournaments and fight team rocket and catch Pokemon. It's so overused it's gotten boring

Meh, the games are much better than the show

18 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.

Way better and had actual comedy, not just idiots doing stupid stuff. (I'm talking to you all things in top ten and adventure time. ) this had stuff that even adults laugh at

It's actually really creative and hilarious! I can't see why people hate it so much! It also has the voice of Joe DiMaggio (who makes the voice of Jake the Dog and The robot from Futurama) and Tara strong (Who voices Twilight Sparkle and Raven from MLP and Teen Titans) Its really good and I love it. - LpsDisneyTmntFreak

I like the majority of the content in this show, but the only thing I dislike about Chowder is ONE. WRETCHED. FACE.

Dude, chowder is great, that's it, no arguments.

19 Scooby Doo

Which Scooby Doo show? Other than the original Scooby Doo from the 70's, there are at least 4 different spinoffs. There's "A Pup named Scooby Doo" (which was pretty good, even if Fred was always trying to pin it on that red haired bully he had a rivalry with), "What's New Scooby Doo? " (Which was the best spinoff as it felt like they took the original Scooby Doo and put them in a more modern setting and gave us some good straight to DVD movies (Scooby Doo and the witch's ghost, Scooby Doo and the lock ness monster, Scooby Doo Vampire Rock, etc.)), "Scooby Doo, Mystery Inc." (Which was pretty good, not the best, but still pretty good, although I was constantly rolling my eyes at Fred's trap obsession) or "Shaggy and Scooby Doo get a clue" (A show that should be dosed with fire and destroyed in my own opinion. This show was more insulting as a spinoff than "Loonatics Unleashed". At least "Loonatics Unleashed" was pleasing to look at and had some good characters, even if it didn't feel ...more

The show was really cool because of the mysteries and how Shaggy and Scooby were always scared and how their big their appetite was always brought laughs

I have all the movies. No likes it more than me.

This show earned its way and should be number 1 a over regular show and adventure time. I love both of those shows but Ben 10 is a classic

I Love this show please bring it back or make another movie

Ben 10 was, is, and probably will forever be my favorite cartoon ever. It sparked my interest in making cartoons, and is the reason I am who I am. This show taught kids everywhere that you don't always need powers to be a hero, you just need to be brave and committed. I can never sing this show's praises enough.

Holy stinkfly I absolutely love this show
Forearms is definitely my favorite alien
This is easily top 5 worthy
This show is 99.9% better than adventure time
Ben 10 is fantastic
It's the best show Tara strong has ever done
