Best Nickelodeon Cartoons of All Timejwileson
The Top Ten
First I want to say that I really enjoyed the first 3 seasons of the show. Back then this show rocked :)
BUT we are not voting for ONLY 3 seasons, but the whole show that includes every single of the cheap crap seasons afterwards (after 2008 to be precise). I mean come on this show doesn't deserve the first place we're voting for the BEST show not the most POPULAR (in that case FIFTY SHADES OF GREY would be one of the best book of all time...)
Nick invests in this show because its more profitable (and lazier) just to make a new season of it than coming up with a new great show like E.G. avatar: The Last Airbender. That's partly why it's the most popular show because it's the only thing to watch on Nickelodeon right now.
The new producers have no idea why we liked the characters in the first 3 seasons and now all SpongeBob is doing now, is being annoying, cry and love his work. I mean this is his whole life... The only "good one" left is Squidward and he is just a mean ...more
SpongeBob really deserves the first place - My favorite cartoon ever!
SpongeBob rocks and I've liked this cartoon since I was a kid. Way to go SquarePants!
Nicks life support right now
The only good and ongoing show on nickelodeon right now175 Comments
I love this show! It's so funny that I fell of my chair. The characters are so cool especially Sokka who totally cracks me up. I love the romance starting between Aang and Katara. The action is sick as with the awesome bending. And last of all the animals are so adorable and that includes Appa which is a humungous six legged flying bison and Momo which is a flying lemur. I absolutely positively love love LOVE this show. 1000000 out of 10!
This show is a masterpiece, and is more well-rounded, balanced, and developed than most cartoons AND live-action shows I've ever seen. I simply cannot express how this show has challenged my way of thinking about our world issues today (war, violence, racial issues, vengeance, forgiveness and mercy, and many others). The messages this show displays not only serves as a teaching point for a children's cartoons, but the creators also incorporates those messages as part of the plot and part of the character. For example, for one of our heroes, who is a vegetarian and was born into a culture of peace and non-violence, he faces his own moral dilemma of whether it is right to take another's life. Unlike most other children's cartoon, which would simply use the message as a device to teach the lesson to children, the message is expressed through our characters and is also vital to the plot.
The characters, including the protagonists, antagonists, and even the secondary/minor ...more
This show was literally the best thing to ever happen to Nickelodeon. For me, at least. There are so many great things to say about the show.
For one, it's a great concept. I mean, an Asia inspired world where people can manipulate the four elements into a fighting style? Not to mention how detailed every bit of the world is. In one part of the world is a giant swamp with a tree that's wider than most houses. Another is a freezing wasteland, in which one main character has to take shelter in a cave. Not to mention there's a whole other universe where spirits dwell. Seriously, this is such a fantastic world.
The artwork is amazing. I'll admit, the animation wasn't so good that I exploded, but for a kids show, it's spot on. And it certainly gets better in the Legend of Korra, if you haven't seen that series either.
Characters are spot on. They're all relatable and each go through their own problems in the world. The main character, Aang, is forced upon a destiny ...more
Best ever. It has humor, action, and romance, all packed into 1! The character's characters are so realistic! It's always dynamic, never flat, and always follows up on it's story. Best cartoon I've ever seen. Ever.145 Comments
This show reminds me of the teletubbies I don't know why probably because their babys and creepy in my thoughts idc if u hate me this show makes me paranoid and the teletubbies... and barney
It has some disturbing moments - ElSherlock
this list is stupid... rugrats was the best show on nick, it had the spinn-off all groen up... show respect o this amazing kidd show, tommy taught us how to do everything - terren65
Oh really! How the heck is Rugrats at number 4. It should be number 1. I mean,come on. At least it was perfect and didn't have any suicide jokes unlikely modern Spongebob. At least it didn't go on for too long because if it did then it would of sucked. I mean take a look at The Fairly oddparents and Spongebob. That's why it's never good to keep shows on for too long. Anyway this show deserves to be number 1 instead of Spongebob because Spongebob lost it's taste in after 2004. This show is legendary. It's way better than Spongebob.30 Comments
Another classic - ElSherlock
I loved Hey Arnold and I think it deserves to be score higher than this.
This is one of the true classics of the '90s. A lot of cartoons from that decade still hold a very special place in my heart, but only a handful really elevate themselves above the others. Hey Arnold is one of these cartoons. In addition to being a hilarious, romantic approach to the way children perceive their childhood, it's also a very real show, with great themes ^^ moral lessons and well-written stories that allow the characters to emote and feel.
So many cartoons these days come across as junk food. They give the impression that such stories and characters are of no interest to kids, that they only want bright, loud shows with paper-thin plots and weak caricatures. This is why Hey Arnold has lasted as long as it has, and is so popular with fans to this day. It was none of those things, and left fans with something solid to grasp on to ^^ carry with them as they continued to grow older.
Hey Arnold is absolutely the best cartoon to come out of Nick, and its ...more
HA! IS PURE MAGIC... ONE OF THE BEST THINGS OF MY CHILDHOOD WAS JUST LYING IN MY COUCH AND WATCH HELGA DYING FOR ARNOLD (I MUST CONFESS.. I LOVE HIM 2! ) BUT STILL WITHOUT MISSING HER STRONG PERSONALITY AND YET... SOFT AND MUSHY SELF I JUST WANNA SAY THAT I THINK WAS UNFAIR FOR ALL US FANS YOU ENDED A GREAT SHOW LIKE THIS.. AT ITS BEST SEASON, WITHOUT GIVING IT A DECENT AND PROPER END... I WAS SO MAD AND SAD WHEN IT HAPPENS... BRING IT BACK AND YOU WON'T REGRET IT! EVEN NOWADAYS ANY KID FELL IN LOVE OF OUR SHINING FOOTBALL HEAD!47 Comments
This show sucks now - 015804
It was good - ElSherlock
It was pure magic until season 10 and Chloe Carmichael. Hate her!
My favorite Nickelodeon show and probably my all time favorite show. This show pratically has everything: Time Travel, physically surfing the internet and T.V. channels, good moral lessons. The humor never wears off and any age group would enjoy it. The main characters (Cosmo, Wanda, and Timmy) are some of the best main characters in any story. They are extremely humorous and they help you feel better when you're feeling down because they're so emotionally moving.
Back then, this was all true, but after the trilogy specials, this became false, now it's no longer a good show, and it's now an empty, repetitive and mean spirited show, the same thing happened to SpongeBob SquarePants in 2004, which was way earlier, back then, the artwork and music was the problem with this show, but now, everything about it sucks. - nelsonerica53 Comments
BEST SHOW EVER! 1
A great show that was cancelled - ElSherlock
*gir from invader zim I love invader zim na na na
This show had balls. It introduced many children to the evils of humanity and the question of morality, all while being funny as hell. Even so, it didn't simply rely on shock like other dark shows; instead, the comedy was led by the battles between 3 truly likable characters (Zim, Dib and GIR) and their hilarious one-liners. It was a thrill ride.50 Comments
Danny Phantom was my favorite show as a kiddo. I wasn't ever sure why until I re watched the series as a 16- year old. Upon doing so I realized the sense of community I felt. The interactions between Danny's ghost enemies, whether that be the Christmas truce or Ember and Youngblood teaming up, I saw that Danny Phantom preached about always having a place to belong despite what society might think. Danny had a unique relationship with his enemies, they became almost like his friends. They helped to show that the biggest super power anyone has is self confidence and self worth. Danny Phantom tackled issues such as pressure to grow up, self worth, confidence, and essentially being a teenager in the modern era. Not only that but Danny Phantom featured a variety of ethnicities represented in a mainstream cartoon. Central characters were African American, Latina, and Asian. The show also had an interracial couple at one point. One of the three main characters was an African American! The ...more
AWESOME show, my personal favorite, but in all honesty, I hope it doesn't return for a fourth season. Don't get me wrong, I would LOVE to see what happens next like, how does Danny and Sam's relationship work out? Is it possible for Vlad to return? Does Dani Phantom get adopted by Danny's family? The list goes on. But we all need to take a good look at what Nickelodeon's become. The new art styles are HORRENDOUS, the writers couldn't write a good episode if they tried, the writers DON'T try to write good episodes, and bringing shows back hasn't been a good idea for a LONG time. Look what they did to Jimmy Neutron, or the Rugrats (not All Grown Up, I mean the pre-school days thing), they turned them into terrible "shows" that barely lasted a full season. I LOVE Jimmy Neutron and the Rugrats, and when they re-made those shows, they lost so many fans. They can have a chance to bring the show back, but they are most likely going to screw it up. Personally, I LOVE this show just the way it ...more
Danny Phantom is TRULY THE BEST CARTOON IN THE ENTIRE WORLD! I love Danny Phantom so much & I really hope that Nick will bring him back for a fourth season! Every day I watch at least five episode of Danny Phantom! The show is a major part in my life as is Danny! I was so happy when Danny & Sam finally became boyfriend & girlfriend! Phantom Planet was the best finally EVER! Please, PLEASE, PLEASE SAVE Danny Phantom AND BRING HIM BACK FOR MORE SEASONS! Danny Phantom means everything to me & I really love the show!
Awesome - ElSherlock50 Comments
It always says the age for this this show is 13+ - oadoreabledog
This show is amazing and hilarious it does deserve to be number 1 not spongebob maybe the first three seasons in like 3rd place
What?! This deserves to be in the top five! Predictably, Spongebob is number 1. Man, some people need to watch the 90's. I know it's the past, but Nickelodeon was great back then, much better than it is now. Ren and Stimpy was AWESOME! Much better than Sanjay and Craig, or The Fairly Odd Parents. I know when John left, it went WAY downhill, but still. Give it SOME credit for the first two years. This show never failed to make me laugh.
If only the new Spongebob was as merciful...
Not as good as the early SpongeBob but the late SpongeBob... - booklover117 Comments
This show is great and to all the haters that complain about the show pushing an agenda with Clyde's dads and Luna and Sam that is certainly not true at all the show has never felt like their pushing any agenda and anyone who thinks that hey are pushing an agenda are delusional. - Nikx
This should switch with Avatar because I don't even know anything bout it (sorry avatar lovers)
PEOPLE ADORE LUAN!
SO DO III!
But there are other reasons.
And SCREW YOU LOUD HOUSE HATERS!
People just love to hate this show but for me I really enjoy it for what it one of the best Nickelodeon cartoons currently airing hell it even manged to be on the same level as SpongeBob after so many years of dominating Nick we finally get a show that can stand toe to toe with the yellow sponge. - Nikx
I liked Lincoln and his 10 Sisters, they're kinda cool and great. It was late year since I started to watch this show.44 Comments
If you wanna know why this show is SO overrated by its fanbase, here's why:
BECAUSE IT ACTUALLY DESERVES NEARLY ALL OF THE PRAISE THAT IT GETS AND THEN SOME. There. Is that a good enough reason? Ren & Stimpy was an okay series but not as good as this.
How Number 7 it. Should be like number 4
How is this not higher? This show alone made my childhood, I don't understand why more people aren't voting for it.
This show didn't get the airtime it deserved. It was easily the best cartoon with the wackiest sense of humor that could enchant kids and grown-ups likewise. I discovered the show in my twenties and fell in love with the crazy stupidity and had frequently cramps from laughing too hard. But I'm not surprised it's not at the top. Because it never explained what was funny or cheesy. You had to have certain experience in life to appreciate the presentation that was the silliest ever intentionally!23 Comments
This cartoon is decent. There's nothing exceptionally good about it, and there's nothing exceptionally bad. The comedy sometimes works. And to be honest, the characters in this show have been seen in many other shows, sometimes being done better. On top of that, most of the characters are somewhat forgettable. Does it deserve a top ten spot? Certainly not. - JBDBIB_Baerman
Spongebob is definitely the number one Nickelodeon cartoon, fairly oddparents is a good show too but this is one of my favourite shows growing up, it should be in the top ten
I like this really cat dog are twins
Favorite cartoon of all time! I still watch it at night on teen nick laugh out loud10 Comments
My favorite cartoon of all time. Just watched the first in years and it was so good that I binged watched the entire series in a couple weeks and am heartbroken that it only lasted 3 seasons. One of the only shows that actually got better as the series progressed and also one of the only shows that actually have plot points that continue with the series. To many shows nowadays don't follow a storyline and just make a random episode that has nothing to do with the previous episodes. Please bring back Jimmy Neutron
One of the best Nick shows because it has science and good characters and wonderful plot lines.
2%? What disrespect. How dare you put fairly Odd Parents above this show? That show was good but this show was/is better. R.I.P. Jimmy Neutron
This was a great cartoon and it's a classic. It should definitely be top 5 at least12 Comments
I love this show. These two bros are a funny duo - Spongehouse
At least I can respect the fact its in the top 20
This should be 1. Why wasn't in the top 10
One of the funniest shows should be top 5 but unfortunately nick cancelled it3 Comments
I never watched this show but I've seen shorts clips of it and it amazing - oadoreabledog
This deserves top 10. It’s the power puff girls of Nickelodeon!
This show must be in the top tens, not 25. It is one of the most unique series that I have seen. It is one of the first Nicktoons to add some action. It has beautiful animation, likeable characters, good morals, and plenty of action. Without My Life as a Teenage Robot, there would not be Danny Phantom or Avatar. It deserves more credit for one of the first action cartoons and girl power series in Nickelodeon.11 Comments
This show has to be at the top of the list! It has beautiful animation, a great voice cast and fun, new characters.
Appeals to all audiences, lives up to the reputation of The Last Airbender, and visually stunning in animation and storyline. I am a Korra worshiper. Laugh out loud
Awesome animation show, with just a generally good approach and understanding of human nature. Definitely one you don't want to miss
I like this show as much as I liked Avatar: The Last Airbender. Everything that made that show awesome is in here, only this show has a lot more bending action, which makes this show more fun to watch.15 Comments
Man, what a show! I got hooked the moment I watched the first episode! Booyakasha!
The best TMNT adaption.
I always loved it - Pokemonfan10
TMNT is the best ever show and I am a giant fan. I always loved those turtles and I will always do it! It has to be the number one, because of the amazing story, animation, voice cast. I am a girl and I love it! Also I love Mikey, he is my favourite character ever and I think he is the cutest! TMNT for ever!33 Comments
Good cartoon but need more Patrice to become best. Give respond please thank very much
From all cartoons fan
Awesome cartoon but not as good as Avatar, SpongeBob, Rugrats etc.
Absolute best cartoon of all time I love watching it with my kids can it wait for a new one so sad to see it go off the air!
This show is old school but it is such a good show4 Comments
This show is extremely underrated - Spongehouse
This needs to be higher top 3 at least - 015804
Harvey Beaks was a beautiful, fun cartoon. This and loud house show Nickelodeon is rising up to rival Cartoon Network again. So, HARVEY BEAKS!
Well, I like this show If you hate it or like it I respect your opinion.9 Comments
I like Doug. A little dated, but it's funny
Lame show - iliekpiez
Whoever did the first comment your right half of the one up top should be down here shows in the 90's were all that and up to about 2003 maybe 2004 with shows like Ned's Declassified, Drake and Josh, Zoey 101 was straight when you think about it and shows like unfabolous
This show should be in the top 2. The problem is, the majority of the people voting on this grew up in the 2000's, and have no idea what a good cartoon is. Shows from the '90's wipe the floors with the later cartoons.5 Comments
One of the most underrated nicktoons ever - Spongehouse
I love this show so much! In my opinion it's funnier than Monsters inc.
I really can't believe that ATBG is only at the 20th place. This proves to me again that this "cartoon" (personally I prefer animated series, because I feel like this one deserves more than just the word "cartoon") is way too underrated. The storelines are actually something t (w) eens actually can relate to; even I as a 17-year-old can still relate to some of the problems Ginger and her friends have to face (e.G. drinking too much coffee in order to stay up to study, but falling asleep at school). And of course the animation itself is amazing: characters actually have 5 fingers (instead of 4, which most cartoon characters have), characters have an entire garderobe instead of just 1 outfit for the entire series and the mood in some of the scenes gives me goosebumps (e.G. the scene where Ginger reads her And She Was Gone poem).
Conslusion: Vote ATBG up people! It deserves way better than 20th place and only 0, 06% of your votes!
oh I just loved ginger and her weird friends and family - they should never have stopped running it
Always enjoyed shows like this, Daria and Pelswick.
Great show Good Moral's1 Comment
The wild thornberrys, are cool! Based on a comedian named marvin and his son named nigel and their crew, a camerawoman named lorraine, a grunge cartoonist named deborah, a nature and myth geek named elizabeth, a strange boy named donnie, and a clever ape named darwin
Childhood right here, childhood
This show was absolutely wonderful and hilarious and great love it
This was such a great show teaching us about wildlife. - 4459561 Comment
My friends don't remeber this show but I do - oadoreabledog
I love this show. It's cousin Butch Hartman work I most love. The universe which constitutes anthropomorphics animals, action and adventure that resembles Zootopia and Sly Cooper. The characters are very well made, the bad guys are funny. The show was successful without need magic (The Fairly OddParents) or super powers (Dany Phantom), only needed to combat crime + science fiction. The show is decent and suitable for children and not to mention it's beautiful parts of some of the episodes involving emotions of the characters. He has to earn more seasons.
Creative and funny show
This show is so underrated, it deserves more praise than it gets.6 Comments
This show is awesome but Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sucks
I love this show that comment is a boo for me
I just like it yo now its have beter version1 Comment
I like the creativity
Animation is horrible
Why did it get cancelled? It barely had a bad episode!
I love this show! This should be number 1 on the list! I wish it could have had more seasons than 3. It deserved at least 5 seasons.
Penguin of madagascar is a good cartoon
This has over 7.1 Million viewers, and accordind to T.V. experts POM is the Second Best Animated Show Behind SpongeBob. GO POM!11 Comments
I love and like it because I watch the episodes
All grown up, isn't bad. We got a very intense drama for kids about the adventures of the babies now 10 year olds. Now I could recognise the characters. And probably this should be higher. (Along with the last airbender and invader Zim)
In my opinion all grown up is better than the rugrats because I'm a teenager and you can relate more to cartoon teenagers than you can cartoon babies
It's not too good and it's not too bad
Brings back good memories.
I still love it (I know that's weird but I don't care) - Pokemonfan10
Blue's Clues is better than Fanboy and Chum Chum!
This show is okay, but it gets freaky when Steve or Joe draws clues in their notebooks, they come to life, and start singing about themselves.3 Comments
One of the greatest has the best theme song
That song that plays when they show the episode title cracks me up
I've loved Catscratch my whole life. I was so sad when it ended. Every character is funny, especially Waffle. This should be higher!
Screw you Nick foe cancelling it.3 Comments
Why do they make baby spin offs?
How about a reboot? It was interesting to watch in the 90s before school lol.
This is a good show. It's one of the only good cartoons of today.
I love the show.
Nick brought the cartoonish version of Alvin and the Chipmunks back
This show, SpongeBob, Phineas & Ferb, and Pokemon are the only good cartoons today.5 Comments
These are best cartoons I really like panda
Its nothing but 22 minutes of the Rabbids screaming and causing mischief just how the hell can anyone make an entire cartoon series based on this premise. - egnomac
This show sucks. If shows could turn you into retards, than this is the perfect show to do the trick.
They are so retarded I like em.
This show was so annoying to all audiences, glad it got cancelled.5 Comments
Love dis show
That series Is Hilarious It made me laugh at lot when I see it is one of my favorite Nickelodeon T.V. Shows and I wish it got back for Season 3.
Oh for the love of... HOW IS THIS LIWER THAN RABBIDS INVASION?!
I do not like this show at all - BloomFire
A they didn’t even share this on Nick this error on Nick Jr.
Um, violent? This is a preschool cartoon. It's not the slightest bit violent. - lamourieparkinson
How is it violent?1 Comment
Even if it did air on Nickelodeon at some point, it wasn't by Nickelodeon, and it wasn't originally made FOR Nickelodeon. Therefore, it is NOT a NickToon. Seriously, people?!
For those of you saying it is not in nickelodeon. It has been on nickelodeon so get your facts right
This isn't even a nicktoon. The is from warner brothers kids. This is still one of the best shows of all time but this isn't a nicktton so it would be unfair.
He is the coolest because he did not want any power or any other thing he only use his mind and help everybody he is a real superhero I love you ninja hattori you are the best and you are my favorate hero.
I love it and I watch it everyday hope to see it forever nabeel
Story of a ninja! He is a cool ninja! this one occurs maximum time in nick! - samashok
My favorite Kids show next to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse!
Its the best cartoon on nick go wubbzy
Great evene for me and I'm 12!
Sheen, Do not push this button
Dogs like cheese, cows like monkeys! Planet Sheen is oh, so funky!
Okay, I get the last part, but the first few lines, you're just off bro!
Skateboards rock! Shoes like feetsies, you are watching Planet Sheensies
Okay, it's not called "Planet Sheensies"
You know what they say Sheen; it ain't par-tay until somebody breaks a tongue! Check!
That's just creepy
Tuna noodle casserole!
Stranded on a planet...
Whatcha gonna do?
Change your name to Larry?
Rub bacon on the queen...
It all makes perfect sense on...
This show sucks. They made Sheen stupider, and took him to some kind of place in a different universe.
Planet sheen is the worst spin off ever!
Jar Jar Binks's spirit arises with Planet sheen.2 Comments

Kamblam is cool mad is ugly
