theres a lot of episodes I like for example rock bottom

Overrated, but the first 3 seasons aren't bad.

Better than all the Nicktoons ever. - orangemo8

It used to be so good. Now it's garbage

2 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.

The characters in this show and pretty much everything else is excellent first we have Zim the arrogant, selfish and destructive alien who has a lust for world domination. Gir is Zim's hyperactive, goofy, and dim-witted robot assistant. Dib is Zim's paranoid, intelligent, and heroic arch-nemisis. Gaz is Dib's ill-mannered, angry, and gothic sister. Professor Membrane is Dib and Gaz's busy, scientific, and famous dad who is a scientist for living. Ms. Bitters is Zim and Dib's grumpy, cold, and pessimistic teacher who hates her students and she teaches them negative things. Finally there's Zim's slothful, devious, and powerful leaders called the Almighty Tallests.

Invader zim is the most awesomest show ever to be aired on nick and nicktoons, I honestly think nick is quite stupid for canceling the show and they should bring it back just look at the thousands and thousands of comments asking for it to come back :'( nick curse you and why was there bacon in the soap :3

Action, adventure, humor, horror, lovable characters, cuteness, more humor, great animation, interesting plot, a bit of romance (Zim x Tak).. What more could you want?! Oh, did I mention the humor...?

Crap show notice it didn't even last for very long.
Like Three Friends and Jerry but that had less episodes.

4 Danny Phantom Danny Phantom Danny Phantom is an American animated series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon. It was produced by Billionfold Studios and distributed in Canada by Nelvana, a Canadian animation company. The series follows a teenage boy who, after an accident with an unpredictable portal between the human world more.

Danny Phantom has a lot of meaning, actually, under all that rather child-like façade. It teaches one so many different values and the truths in our lives - honesty, morality, identity, everlasting friendships, how blind certain people can be to the truth when they simply follow the crowd. It revolves around Danny Fenton, whose parents, teachers and classmates who only see him as just another troubled, lazy teen, but what they didn't know is the other side of him. The selfless, persevering, ghostly Phantom.

Yet, despite his good deeds, he was still seen as a menace by many, and was even hunted by his own ghost hunting parents. Why? Simply because he is a ghost. And ghosts are supposed to be evil. No exceptions. The end.

This is why I feel that Danny Phantom should be ranked as the top few best shows of Nickelodeon. It holds so much potential and character development. So much that you would even be able to empathize with his troubles.

Danny Phantom is the absolute best show ever! He is the only character of all time to be half-ghost! Not to mention the hilarious jokes an characters like Box Ghost. Danny Phantom is a one-of-kind show altogether. He is an unbeatable character and I wish it would continue.

Danny Phantom is the best show I can relate to as a teenager it came on when I was little but after I reached the same age as him I understood it although it was cancelled and now I've got nothing to watch except the reruns

Oh love it

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

The Fairly OddParents is the show that deserves the Kids Choice Award every year! NOT SpongeBob! Fairly OddParents is the best show to ever live and always will be! People of Nickelodeon and Nicktoons... DO NOT stop making new FOP episodes EVER! If this show dies, I die!

I love this show to pieces this show needs to be way higher then SpongeBob it's bad enough SpongeBob wins every single kids choice awards

This show sucks now! I used to like the show. But when they keep adding new characters it kept on getting worse and worse! And when they added Chloe it went downhill terribly!

Lovely show. Keep it going.

6 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.

Perhaps not as creative and divisive as Zim or Airbender, Arnold just has such a special quality to it. It doesn't always have happy endings, the characters are deep (Helga, of course, is the standout), it had a wonderful jazz score (I listen to the music casually), the character designs out visually, it captures childhood beautifully, and it's also a lot of fun. I really do think it's the best Nicktoon. - FuzzySlippers

Unfortunately, I was born in 2003, so I never got to see any new episodes of this show, only reruns. Why did this awesome cartoon get canceled for boring CGI crap that has 30 potty jokes per episode.

This is my favorite show from my childhood. I always remember watching this show whenever it would comme on. - BigBerry25

Even though kids and some Tweens may find this show boring and too sophisticated and serious, most people ages 8+ will find this show pretty entertaining. - Yorkshire2001

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

This show holds so many memories, nostalgia, And not to mention the wonderful characters and development and HUMOR. So much better than spongebob in humor! Deserves to be #1

The 2nd most popular Nickelodeon show! (First is obviously SpongeBob.)

Rugrats will forever be an all time nation favorite

Better than spongebob, because spongebob got stupid after a while

8 Ren and Stimpy Ren and Stimpy The Ren & Stimpy Show, often simply referred to as Ren & Stimpy, is an American animated television series created by John Kricfalusi for Nickelodeon.

The exact definition of disgusting and disturbing and yet.,I love it.

I love everything about this show... Except the Adult Party Cartoon...

At least when John was there. The whole thing was a train wreck after that.

One of the best Nicktoons of all time of the 90s. The Adult Party one was really bad.

9 Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life is an American animated television series created by Joe Murray for Nickelodeon. The series centers on the surreal life of an anthropomorphic Australian-immigrant wallaby named Rocko as well as his friends: the gluttonous steer Heffer, the neurotic turtle Filburt, and Rocko's faithful more.

Great show I like the humor it has The show was only cancelled because Murray left the studio If he had stayed the show would probably run longer Maybe someone can revive this show

I have only seen a few episodes, but I really like this show. It's not as good as Rugrats and Ren and Stimpy, but it's still great.

These shows... are quite possibly the best shows in "the whole wild world! "

10 Loud House

This is good but this topic was made a long time ago so it will take a long time for it to get to the top

I love this show so much - Spongehouse

This is my favorite nicktoon and one of the best modern cartoons in my opinion

Best. Show. EVER!

The Contenders

11 The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron

One of the best shows on nicktoons, they need to get rid of this new crap and put the classics back on, all this other stuff is stupid, I want my nicktoons to be loaded with all the good shows. Bring me back the shows I love

The only good CGI ever made. (Excluding Pixar.)

Jimmy Neurtron was the first CGI Nicktoon, and one of the best. Almost all of the plots were zany and interesting, it knew how to handle humor without turning into it's spinoff... Also it had mostly fully realized characters.

This show is a classic that had it all.

12 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

I love this show its excited

Please put more tmnt season a I love them

Ninja Turtles is the only good Nicktoon (Beside classic SpongeBob & FOP) currently airing. Most shows on the network nowadays are based around retards doing nothing but farting and playing games. That crap is only appealing to braindead five year-olds.

First of all Michelangelo is an idiot
Second of all it's funny
Third of all it's action packed

13 The Legend of Korra The Legend of Korra The Legend of Korra is an American animated television series that aired on the Nickelodeon television network from 2012 to 2014. It was created by Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino as a sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender, which aired from 2005 to 2008.

Cartoon Network has 5 good shows, but Nickelodeon has 1 good show, that is Korra. This is a spinoff of Avatar, and a good one. Now if only Planet Sheen was to say the same...

I'm in love with the legend of korra. Both this and the original are some of my top favorite shows

This is awesome. They should have more seasons, though

This show will be top on nicktoons

14 The Penguins of Madagascar The Penguins of Madagascar The Penguins of Madagascar is an American CGI animated television series that has aired on Nickelodeon.
15 The Angry Beavers The Angry Beavers The Angry Beavers is an American animated television series created by Mitch Schauer for the Nickelodeon Channel The series revolves around Daggett and Norbert Beaver, two young beaver brothers who have left their home to become bachelors in the forest near the fictional Wayouttatown, Oregon.

This should be #1, in my humble opinion.

Oh my gosh, I completely forgot about this show! The brotherly love/hate relationship between Norb and Dag is surprisingly charming and well done. Their dynamic (Norb super laid back, Dag manic) is hilarious and very entertaining. The animation was excellent back in the 90's and is still pretty today.

16 Harvey Beaks Harvey Beaks Harvey Beaks is an American animated television series created by C.H. Greenblatt for Nickelodeon. Originally announced to premiere on March 29, 2015, the series instead premiered on March 28, 2015 following the 2015 Kids' Choice Awards.

Doesn't try to be hyperactive, hip or trendy. A more laid back, funny and very sweet show with some atmospheric background design, great music and amusing characters.

I love the art in most backgrounds of this show, plus it's like one of the best recent show on Nick along with The Loud House.

Really fun and adorable show that harkens back to the times of creative 90's Nickelodeon. Made by CH Greenblatt, the creator of Chowder, it's a really great watch and is one of modern Nick's current best toons. One one of the only things I tune into when I watch Nick nowadays.

17 Dragon Ball Z Kai Dragon Ball is a Japanese anime television series produced by Toei Animation. It made anime popular in America and is based on the manga of the same name by Akira Toriyama. It was dubbed in English on Cartoon Networks Toonami block and still has many fans today.

Dragonball z kai is the best movie on earth! I love the actions and fighting it makes me feel like I am in heaven and my favorite people are Gohan, Goku, Vegeta, Chi Chi, and Piccolo.

This show is better than any other show on nicktoons

18 Aaaah! Real Monsters

I honestly think this show is cool, even if I only see it on Teen nick at 11 PM or some time like that. - craz

19 All Grown Up

Whenever I watched that show it always made me want to hang out with friends instead of staying inside all day. Awesome show!

A rare case of a spinoff that is actually loyal to the original show.

It was rerun in the United States on Nickelodeon and occasionally Nicktoons until November 1, 2007. The show returned to The '90s Are All That for one night, and aired on March 21, 2013. The show aired on Nicktoonsters more.
