Top 10 Best Kids Shows

Celestius

The Top Ten

1 Spongebob Squarepants Spongebob Squarepants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. Spongebob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 18 years, and is beginning its 10th season .

SpongeBob seasons 1-4 are really great and yea the whole family can watch. But after season four don't even watch it those seasons shouldn't even count. In my opinion SpongeBob only ran for four seasons. Counting seasons 1-4 I would put it at three or four on my personal list behind avatar the last airbender and scooby doo and depending on the day tom and jerry. It's a show that I really really enjoyed as a kid and it's really funny and entertaining. If I had to give a negative of it is that it's a better generic kids show. What I mean by that is the jokes are almost always better than other kids shows a lot of the episodes are incredibly well written and creative. However, think of the template kids show and you are getting a much higher quality version of it. It's like the Big Bang theory the show is great but it's a template sitcom not widely different in structure and often content than how I met your mother, 2.5 men, friends, etc. avatar is different and scooby doo/ tom and Jerry ...more

And now in post season 9 to now the episodes feel like they're from seasons 1-4 but they're not there yet to being legendary like season 2 - thebadusername

Only watch seasons 1-4 plus the first (key-word: FIRST) movie. Everything after that is rubbish.

This should number one for so many more reasons:
1. It's been on longer than fairly oddparents and it's still going on with new episodes still coming.
2. The entire family can watch not just the kids.
3. It's way funnier than fairly oddparents

I love spongebob!

2 Gravity Falls Gravity Falls Gravity Falls is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation that first aired on Disney Channel, and then on Disney XD from June 15, 2012 to February 15, 2016. The series follows the adventures of Dipper Pines and his twin sister Mabel in the fictional town of Gravity ...read more.

This is an excellent show withe great humor, animation, music, and atmosphere. I really feel like I'm in a small town in Organ! The characters are excellent, mainly the 2 main characters. Despite being pre-teens, they act quite childish and friendly, which isn't a bad thing. Because of they're younger nature, they are more accepting, positive, and forgiving, not like realistic pre-teens who are grouchy, rude, and disrespectful, and besides, those traits belong to other characters, so many, I won't even mention their names. While Dipper and Mabel are already great (Mabel is the most relatable character to me from a T.V. show or movie since Luna Lovegood), Wendy takes the cake as the BEST character. Not only is she just as kind hearted and fun-loving as Dipper and Mabel, but she's 3 years their senior. Wendy is the prime example of what a teenager SHOULD be, but isn't: not embarrassed by hanging out with those younger than her, kind, fun-loving, goofy-yet-mature, hates drama, has a good ...more

This is one of my favorite shows of all time. For a Disney show, it has very memorable characters and amazing plot line. Vote for this if you have any taste in what you watch. - bishop.moore07

This show is way better than that idiot cartoon known as "Phineas and Ferb"! I love Gravity Falls, and a lot of people do.

THIS SHOULD BE FIRST BECAUSE IT HAS STORRRY unlike sponge bob who winch has no story and is so annoying.

and yes I wrote that in a childs point of view

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.

Okay, I agree with the top ten, but that's pretty much it. Why is Jessie on here and above shows like Danny Phantom? Also, to the guy who made this list, you are missing one show that should be in the top ten, and that's the show that got screwed by its channel, Nickelodeon. That show is "Invader Zim", an awesome show that sadly only had one and a half seasons on Nick. For those who haven't seen it, it is kind of like the dark/insane version of Gravity Falls. it's awesome. For those who agree with me and have seen the show, GO HOME AND SHAVE YOUR GIANT HEAD OF SMELL WITH YOUR BAD SELF!

Everything above this is pretty much junk. I honestly don't know why I like this show so much but I think it has something to do with the characters. This should be in the top ten at least. I could watch this for hours.

I love this show but Gravity Falls and SpongeBob SquarePants are NOT junk (in my opinion) - PeeledBanana

In my opinion it's even better than Spongebob. The reason I like it is because it's not like a normal kids show, it's dark at times, but so funny. It can be inappropriate but that's what life is. I also like it because it makes fun of lots of stuff so It's kind of satire, but also really sad at times. - venomouskillingmachine

Bad new that show is cancelled

4 The Fairly OddParents The Fairly OddParents The Fairly OddParents is an American animated television series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon.

The Fairly OddParents was one of the best cartoons good until 2009, when Cosmo gave birth to Poof, a baby fairy, after that, there weren't enough ideas from the writers to make much more good episodes, and then it went down the bin.

I can't believe this show is lower then good luck charlie it makes me so angry to see this show is lower then it needs to be like the the heck FOP needs to be higher

What I hate baby looney tunes they work like school its educational and not looney but this its so good I hope there will be more than only 8 seasons and more characters - simpsondude

I love this show it's funny a little

5 Avatar: The Last Airbender 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.

Sure, Fairly Odd Parents and Adventure time are good shows, but in comparison to Avatar The Last Airbender all other shows get blown out of the water. It had likable characters, an interesting plot, the fighting scenes were fantastic, it was amazing in every way. If you have not seen it, this show is an absolute MUST. Sure it might be for kids but I'm pretty sure I can watch this at 40 years old and still love it. This isn't the best kid show, this is one of the best shows period.

. Best...show...ever! I just finished watching it and I already miss it. The quality of this show is just spectacular. It's a show made for 8 year olds but even a full grown adult would like it. It teaches many life lessons. Leasons that either we learned as a kid and forgot about or lessons we have yet to learn. Like how everybody needs help. That you aren't expected to do everything by yourself. How there are good and bad guys and those varying shades of grey. Everybody does something for a reason. The things "bad" people do? Those people might feel justified in doing. That we learn from those around us, especially our family. I don't know why or how this got ranked so low. This should be the #1 show to watch. It keeps you hooked. The characters are so lovable and have their own quirks. It also is a blow when you learn Aang's age in the beginning. No 12 year old should have to deal with what he did, but somehow Aang made it through. He even became a better person for it!

If we're judging these on quality, nothing comes close in both plot and production value. This show simply destroys most kids' shows and, in my opinion, is one of the best shows period, regardless of category.

The only show that can compare to this is Gravity Falls - PeeledBanana

6 Tom and Jerry Tom and Jerry Tom and Jerry is an American animated series of short films created in 1940, by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera.

Slapstick violence, it would never happen to your children so you don't need to worry about that. It's a show that is there to make you laugh.

I loved it when I was 3... And I still love it. The new episodes are horrible, with bad music, bad design, and a boring plot. Old episodes (found on boomerang) are so much better, so I'd only recommend the old ones.

This show is extremely funny I use to watch it when I was 6 and I still do.

This is suposed to be number 1

7 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.

I love this show! It's funny and I love all of the different creative characters! This show is awesome and should be in the top three! You have to watch it.

Coming from the opinion of an actual kid, I think this show is so awesome!

OK, this is not bad. its really funny, good for 8 year olds like me, and is cool! not the best, though. one episode is when they play a game and you pick a card, what the card says is what happens to you, for example, if my card said you grab a towel, I will randomly grab a towel.

Very funny

8 Phineas and Ferb Phineas and Ferb Phineas and Ferb is an American animated comedy-musical television series. Originally broadcast as a one-episode preview on August 17, 2007 and again previewed on September 28, 2007, the series officially premiered on February 1, 2008 and ended on June 12, 2015 on Disney Channel, and follows Phineas ...read more.

This deserves to be in the top 3! While SpongeBob and Regular Show are mindless cartoons without meaning, Phineas & Ferb is a great example of what every show should be. It has amazing music, great animation, and the most wonderful characters I've ever seen. They don't make gags about being mean to each other, getting hurt, or even the lame bathroom humor. The jokes are actually HILARIOUS, if you ask me. Phineas is optimistic, cheerful, and tries his best to make sure everybody has a good time. He is a big part of sending good messages to kids about staying positive even when the going gets tough. People have said things about how the characters "break the law," but really they don't think they are doing anything wrong. Usually the adults providing materials to the children will ask if Phineas is too young to be doing what they are doing. Instead of lying, like most children do in T.V. shows, he outright states that yes, yes he is. In the very first episode, there is a whole ...more

I've noticed a lot of people hate this show. Well screw you haters! A lot of people say its just a bad taste in opinions, but they are just hating! If you hate this show then you don't have an imagination!

This is probably the best cartoon ever made. It shows kids that if they put their mind to it, they can do anything. It has awesome songs and the characters are well thought out and lovable. This show should be #1.

My Favourite Show EVER. I love Perry the most. But my mom says you can't watch it! Noo

9 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.

Cool characters, interesting plot lines, and it's a fun show for kids and adults. What I really like about this show is that the main aspect is Finn and Jake's cool adventures, but the show doesn't always just focus on those characters. Almost every character has a backstory. Finn and Jake, Simon and Marceline, even root beer guy! The Fionna and Cake episodes are great, and the stakes series as well. Adventure time is a show for everybody. There are funny episodes, sad episodes, episodes that expand the plot line, etc. I guess what I'm just trying to say is that ADVENTURE TIME ROCKS!

Oh little lemon hope throw me a lemon rope

Best why is this not in top three!

Adventure time all the way, best show ever!

10 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.

Pokemon is like a bunch of other shows, it started out good, but then became plain boring.

Seasons 1-5 were the best! Creative characters, loads of adventures, and clean comedy. That's what made it so good.

Seasons 6-9 these seasons were amazing. Sure they can't top the original but I still like it because it kept the special feeling.

Seasons 10-13 the four seasons were pretty good but not down right cool. I was mostly interested by Ash's rivalry with Paul and the fact that Brock was still there.

Seasons 14-16 awful. The characters were unoriginal, the plot was simple, and the comedy was meh.

Seasons 17 and 18 I stopped watching it. These seasons made Pokemon really hard to watch, epsically if you're in poke shipping. Not only that, but the series became predictable after season 13. Not only that but Ash's new voice actress became annoying. The first one sounded really good and it made Ash sound like a boy. The new one just sounds like a little girl ...more

Pokemon is great and all but when they took out Brock I was mad I mean he was in the first season if they can take out Brock then they can Ash. Very disappointed at the people who made this decision. :(

Pokemon WAS a great show, until the new seasons, which had repetitive episodes and worse animation, making the series go downhill, it's nowhere near as good as it used to be, if you love Pokemon, only watch the classics and not the new ones.

I'm not such a fan of Pokémon

This show sucks. The Bronies are just creepy idiotic perverts who want to have sex with horses. This show sucks just like the animation and characters. I can't wait for this awful show to finally end so we don't have to hear "bronies for life" anymore. - mrcoolface

This show should get lower! Its not the best! - cosmo

I don't get why people are hating on this shows because of the fandom! We are at talking about the show! Who gives a cap about who the fandom is! I don't care if there are bronies. That just goes to show that the show is THAT good! I'm a girl so I'm not a brony, but insulting the show because of the fandom is dumb. That's like you stupid Steven's Universe haters saying the show is bad because the fandom is bad. (I'm not a hater by the way.) The fandom is CAUSED by the good show, not the other way around. This show is good and no one should give a crap if the fandom is trash. Just the show. Only focus on the show. That's what the list is for. If you're looking for the worst FANDOMS, find another list to hate on.

12 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 ...read more.

WHY IS THIS ON HERE! The old Teen Titans were so so cool. I was raven for Halloween once. This show is making fun of the teen titans. This show is really stupid. It's all about laughing at dumb people, being dumb, and every other episode they get fat or something! This show IS NOT SO COOL. I only watch it when nothing else is on.

When is saw this I thought "oh yeah I knew the old TT was on here! " But no. All this show does is make great characters like Raven and others look like jerks! I don't even feel like they are fighting, if you watch the dodgeball episode then you see they don't even fight for the trophy (did I forget to mention they already had it? ). And going back to the good characters looking like douches thing, Raven and Starfire had to sit out because Raven was too ruff and Starfire was too dumb.

DEAR LORD! This show is horrible! Do not let your kids watch this atrocity. It teaches bad morals, the characters are utterly annoying, and none of the episodes are funny. The writing is lazy and redundant. The visuals are inferior. And the only people that root for this awful show must have not seen the true original teen titans. For those who have, do not watch this show. Please don't. It wastes time at best, and plagues the brain at worst.

Take this off the list

14 Good Luck Charlie Good Luck Charlie Good Luck Charlie is an American sitcom that originally aired on Disney Channel from April 4, 2010, to February 16, 2014. The series' creators, Phil Baker and Drew Vaupen, wanted to create a program that would appeal to entire families, not just children.

Good Luck Charlie should be where SpongeBob or Phineas and Ferb is. I really wish that show would end already.

This show wasn't like other Disney Channel shows. It actually taught kids about reality, wow, shocker. Definitely the best live action Disney show by far.

It's the only Disney Channel show where the teenagers are "funny stupid" and not "stupid stupid". The parents are actually there unlike all the other Disney Channel shows.

This show is so good, too bad it finished. It really deserves to be higher up.

I think it's the best because I am a twin and it is funny I especially enjoy live in maddie Cali style and my name is Callie

This is my favorite show. This should really be #1. This is the best show ever. You guys are insane. This deserves to be first.

Worst show I've ever seen. The characters are annoying, and the only likable characters are the background characters. Nobody wanted to be an actor of liv so Maddie had to do both :P

Drama,Love,and Basketball these were the ingredients chosen to make a terrible Disney show

16 Sesame Street Sesame Street Sesame Street is a long-running American children's television series, produced by Sesame Workshop and created by Joan Ganz Cooney and Lloyd Morrisett.

I remember they had a segment in one episode called 'Preschool Musical', as opposed to 'High School Musical'. And the gang! From Big Bird & Snuffy being the stars of the show to Oscar's sarcasm about liking being sad and what have you, it's a fantastic show! You know what it used to be called? Television for Preschool Children'. - JayJayPlane

I'm 12 and I still laugh at this show! The puppet work is awesome, the characters are downright memorable, and the show itself is just plain genius! It's not as good today, but in it's early years, it was simply remarkable!

Best show ever. Teaches children gentleness, acceptance and kindness. Also encourage children to learn and love learning.

My baby girl love that show which Alexandra Carney like my mom.

17 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.

At first glance, this show, it looked like another filler cartoon like Uncle Grandpa. But I was SO WRONG. The first few episodes seem kind of boring, but after a few episodes, the show got so interesting. The characters got backstories, and the show got more mysterious, and dark. Steven even matured a bit and got a love interest! It's such a amazing show, the jokes are funny, and the show takes itself seriously, but still
Is funny enough to enjoy!



Garnet: Oh, yes, this is Mom Universe. Yes, the children are playing swords. Sorry, playing WITH swords. They're bleeding! Oh no! They are dead! Don't call again. Sorry, I panicked.

This is one of the awesome jokes in the show.

Garnet=Master of Comedy

You can skip the first few episode because they mean nothing but the rest is AMAZING! The show introduces awesome concepts like fusion, the gem war, and even the DIAMOND AUTHORITY! There is so much to ponder and I just can't stop thinking about it. The jokes are hilarious and deep unlike the cheap bathroom humor and insults other shows seem to offer. Steven Universe is a standalone cartoon among all the others and breaks the barriers of what we thought cartoons are supposed to be like. 10/10 best cartoon ever.

HOW IS THIS SO LOW?! Seriously, Adventure Time is 5th, and this is 58th. But if you search, "Steven Universe vs Adventure Time Poll" on Google and you click on a couple polls (or more) then you will see that Steven Universe has more votes.

Love this show. 17th is too low.

18 Teletubbies Teletubbies Teletubbies is a British pre-school children's television series created by Ragdoll Productions' Anne Wood CBE and Andrew Davenport, who wrote each of the show's 365 episodes .

Why does everybody hate this cute little kids show? Why? This show rocks! Gravity Falls, Regular Show, and Adventure Time are way worse than this cute little kids show! Everybody in this world thinks this show Teletubbies is the worst baby show of all time, but it is not, it never will be and never has! This show is not bad at all! This show always gets hated on, which is not supposed to happen! The people who made this show made a great little kids show! This film is not supposed to be hated at all, ever! Teletubbies is is not bad in the least! Just because people hate this cute little kids show does not mean it is bad or awful! No one should hate this cute little kids show!

Disney1994, you think the Teletubbies are cute, charming, friendly, and teach friendship? Sanjay and Craig is lame, but not as bad as this abomination called an "educational show".

And NO, the Teletubbies aren't cute, charming, and friendly, they are actually ugly, nasty, stupid, creepy, mind-numbing, hellspawning, grimacing, sadistic, DISGUSTING characters, and I didn't learn one single thing about friendship in this show. Go kill yourself if you are over the age of 6 and like this show.

Teletubbies, according to a CreepyPasta, is about the end of the world, and it got banned because it gave kids nightmares beyond nightmares (It even gave me nightmares! ), and the Teletubbies don't even look 1% cute. It's true. I hate this show so much, I'd rather watch Dora or Barney than watch this ever again.

And these Teletubbies are truly the hellspawn of preschool shows. The "educational content" in it was blasted into space many universes away, all ...more

What is Teletubbies even doing here this show is a burden on this planet... I hated it in my childhood...my brother though used to like it when he was 2 years old but after a few months he stopped watching it... thank God he did!

WHY IS THUS EVEN A THING. BABYS LIKE weird THINGS. BUT TO ME IF I WACH THIS I WILL POSIBLY NO WAIT MOST LIKLY TO HAVE NIGHTMARES. Sorry for screaming its just HOW IS THIS A BEST T.V. SHOW. >:(

19 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 creepy, but creepily lovable. The reason why I couldn't watch this show is because my sister said it was creepy and always changed the channel. But if I could, I would watch it!

Courage in the middle of Chowder and MLP? No thanks. This show was and still is awesome, it may not deserve number 1 because of its dark themes. But this show is gold compared to most of the shows lower then this!

Awesomely disturbing show... That's why I love it! It gave me nightmares and I like nightmares so that is why I like it!
