Best Nickelodeon Cartoons Between 1991-2011

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 .

Even adults and teens like this show and I'm not surprised because this show is just hilarious for all ages

Between 1991 and 2011 this was the best of course

Naruto used to be in nick?

This came out in 2004. Not 91, and it stopped airing good episodes around 2010 or so. The show has really gone downhill lately.

2 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.

One of the best shows Nickelodeon has given us. People of all ages love it! And that really says something! Love love love love love this show.

3 Invader Zim Invader Zim Invader Zim is an American animated television series created by Jhonen Vasquez for Nickelodeon. The series centers on an extraterrestrial named Zim from the planet Irk, and his mission to conquer Earth and enslave the human race along with his malfunctioning robot servant GIR.

Invader Zim is the BEST! The animation is very well done, the stories are entertaining and hilarious, and the general idea is just brilliant! The characters are all adorable (usually), funny, and all unique. I am so sad it was cancelled :(. It can be kinda dark at times, and probably shouldn't be seen by young kids, but for older people this is the BEST CARTOON EVER. And SpongeBob - that sorry FILTHY STUPID TERRIBLE IDIOTIC DISGUSTING PIECE OF CRAP of a show - needs to BE KILLED WITH FIRE AND SUFFER IN HELL FOREVER. BRING BACK ZIIM!

Not much for kids

4 Hey Arnold! Hey Arnold! Hey Arnold! is an American animated television series created by Craig Bartlett that aired on Nickelodeon from October 7, 1996 to June 8, 2004. The show centers on a fourth grader named Arnold, who lives with his grandparents in an inner-city boarding house.

I'd put Avatar but I still technically consider it an anime. But this show is probably the best Nickelodeon cartoon overall. It's my favorite for several reasons.
1. You could relate to the characters and they were also lovable.
2. The soundtrack. Search on youtube Jim Lang. He created the amazing soundtrack that is so often overlooked. He was/is a genius.
3. The realism of the show. Not only the characters but the setting, the atmosphere.. It all felt real. It's what made it more than a kids show. While kids sat and watched and reveled in the comedy and the endearing nature of the show the adults could sit back and go "wow that was deep" and the show had appeal for adults as well as kids. Good mix of different types of humors.
I could go on and on... Amazing show.

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

I love Cosmo the most because when I look at him I think his skin is really soft and cozy

6 Rugrats Rugrats Rugrats is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain for Nickelodeon.
