This doesn't include reruns played on Cartoon Network or Adult Swim.

The Top Ten

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.

Best show ever. Why don't they play this anymore and things like Kids next door, Camp lazlo Fosters home, code lyoko and grim adventures of billy and mandy. I hate the stupid shows they play now like scardy squirrel. BRING THE OLD STUFF BACK

This was my favorite kids show while I was growing up, and it was an absolutely amazing cartoon. It's REALLY sad if you look at the network now, because all the new shows are complete garbage compared to shows like this.

Adventure time and steven universe are much better than this god awful abomination. - GGGofluckyourself

Oh. My. God! I love this show! Ed, Edd, and Eddy are three of the greatest trio of boys I know! It was probably my favorite show on Cartoon Network besides Hamtaro and Kids Next Door! And besides, it's quite challenging to find a quality show(like The Legend of Korra on Nick) when there is nothing but reality shows and other garbage on the television. It quite disappointing of what the 'television media' has done. This is why I watch Lifetime movies with my gran gran now.

I love the animation style and the goofy things everyone does. The characters are simple yet well-done, you feel a connection to them. And the show is very cute and funny, a lot better than the cartoons they're making nowadays (except for Adventure Time. Adventure Time is awesome. )

Dragon Ball Z (Toonami) Dragon Ball Z is a Japanese anime television series produced by Toei Animation. Dragon Ball Z follows the adventures of Goku who, along with the Z Warriors, defends the Earth against evil. The action adventures are entertaining and reinforce the concept of good versus evil. Dragon Ball Z teaches valuable ...read more.

One of the best shows ever. My brother and I used to fight quite a lot when we were little and this show was the one thing we could agree on. I remember sitting on the floor in front of the T.V., waiting eagerly for Toonami to start so I could watch this. Dragonball, Dragonball Z, and Dragonball GT have shaped me for the better and have taught me to never give up, always stay true to myself, and to give even your worst enemies a chance.

A turning point in my childhood

The best ever series that made me an addict and the all characters are the rocking no words to mention those things

Best show ever created. Everything is thought out and the story is great for people of all ages. I've seen every episode and was never disappointed. The only reason this isn't number 1 is because most people won't give it a chance but if you watch just one episode you will love it too!

It's not the best, and it shouldn't be number 2 either, the best show on Toonami is Gurren Lagann, even though Gurren Lagann is not for all ages, it's way better than DBZ, The characters are huge, Simon is the size of Earth, and Gurren Lagann is bigger than a galaxy and when he's super, he's bigger than the WHOLE UNIVERSE! And he tears the heavens and drills them with his Giga Drill, no other anime will ever match Gurren Lagann, you should've seen it and then you would've loved it better than DBZ, DBZ is more popular, but that doesn't make it the best/ - nelsonerica

Courage the Cowdly Dog

This is the most funniest yet sometimes scary cartoon of the entire history of cartoon shows. However it is becoming a bit lame nowadays. I prefer the first episodes.

greatest of all time, Ed Edd n Eddy is a sure second - roblist

Doesn't anyone get it that this cartoon was the spoof of all those stupid Hollywood horror films? The sarcasm was awesome. And the computer in the attic. Brilliant. "stupid dog, you made me look bad"

Courage the cowardly dog is my favourite cartoon from childhood... There was too scary moments, but it will remain my favourite cartoon forever:))

Family Guy Family Guy is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Griffins, a family consisting of parents Peter (Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Idiotic Son), and Stewie ...read more.

I mean I thought the earlier seasons were okay but the newer seasons just aren't funny. I don't find myself watching this show again to be honest - miiplaza

I don't understand why some of them saying that family guy is boring. They totally don't understand what's the point about family guy.

It's one of those shows that you really have to have a sense of humor to enjoy. You can't take it seriously at all. It's like South Park, only not as good.

Great cartoon... I just can't stop laughing

Rick and Morty Rick and Morty is an American adult animated science fiction sitcom created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Adult Swim.

I fell in love with this show the first episode I watched. My favorite character is Morty

Everyone vote this up so it can replace all the other crappy shows

Umm... Why is this show getting hate? This literary is a well written show. The characters are amazing, the jokes are funny. It's a definition of original, better than all the other newer adult cartoon shows. May not seem too appealing at first... But as you continue to watch it, it gets better.

I actually thought the pilot was great- I had to pause it at one point because I was laughing so hard. This is a pretty good show, though- I mainly started watching it because it seemed popular among the Gravity Falls fandom (same goes for Steven Universe).

Samurai Jack Samurai Jack is an American action-adventure chanbara animated series created by Genndy Tartakovsky for Cartoon Network. The series premiered on August 10, 2001, with a TV movie called The Premiere Movie, before ending in its fourth season on September 25, 2004, without concluding the story. A revival ...read more.

They seriously need to make another season where Jack goes back in time and beats Aku. Then my life will be complete

Samurai Jack is awesome! It is fairly basic art but shot in such a brilliantly cinematic way that it more than makes up for any of it's shortcomings.
The music and sound is beautifully epic too, just a pity the series was never finished-bring back Jack!

SAMURAI JACK IS IN the HOUSE THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE SAMURAI.

I wish they continued samurai jack, It was my favorite show.

Chowder doesn't deserve to be on this list. Neither does FHFIF.
The old-school shows like Samurai Jack were the best. And, Cartoon Network took them out because it didn't fit childrens interests and didn't benefit ratings.
And, of course, ratings = cash.
Duh. / - frostwiire

Adventure Time with Finn & Jake

Adventure Time is one of the most epic animated shows in history. The only other show on Cartoon Network this awesome is Regular Show, but Adventure Time is better.

This show is AWESOME. It mixes nonsense and adventure concept. I know many people would argue about bringing the old cartoons back, but this show, to me, is the best CURRENTLY aired in Cartoon Network.
This is a show that doesn't seems to be what it looks like, because that's a dark past inside this cartoon (Mushroom War), it's so epic, every song in the cartoon have sense, and all those jokes are made for both Teenagers and Adults, I personally think the creator of this show is a total genius.

Adventure Time is one of those shows that just when you see it, you know it's special. With a simple but clean art style, great music, logical continuity, crazy but lovable characters, amazing facial expressions and clever humor, I believe this is the show that got Cartoon Network in the right direction again!

This is so awesome! The show mixes both cartoon-like elements with a theme of action adventure. Its like the only show in excistence which I can talk to with both my twelve-year-old friends and my six-year-old sister.

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.

Gumball is rated TVY7 THE SPOON AND THE QUEST WERE THE FIRST EPISODES TO BE RATED TVPG THE DATE RATED TVPG THE GI RATED TVPG THE PARTY TVPG THE PRANK TVPG THE MYSTERY TVPG THE SHOW HAS SOME ADULT JOKES GUMBALL IS NAKED IN A WHOLE BUNCH OF EPISODES AND HIS CROTCH IS CENSORED OUT THE SHOW FOCUS MORE ON DATING AND HAS SOME CLOSE TO SWEARING WHAT THE WHAT AND SOME DISTURBING SCENES LIKE GUMBALL AND DARWIN ACCIDENTALLY KISSING NOT KNOWING IT AND LIKING IT A CREEPY HORSE IT REALLY FEELS LIKE IT SHOULD BE RATED TVPG

Greatest comedy cartoon of all time in my opinion, never has been truly bad, so creative and just a fun show.

The Problem Solverz wasn't the only Cartoon Network original show to be rejected by Adult Swim, because it was too cute. The Amazing World of Gumball however was originally intended to be an Adult Swim show just simply named "Gumball", but rejected for looking too cute, allegedly, so it also got passed on to Cartoon Network.

Gumball was never pitched to AS. It was always intended for children - Gaygure

Trippiest show on Cartoon Network. Adventure show and Flapjack are good. Not a huge fan of Regular Show or Chowder.

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.

The show, I must say was very creative. I remember when I was little; I would come home everyday for elementary school and turn on cartoon network and watch that show. Those days were the best.

It's so creative that it can't even be described.
It's one of those shows that makes you wonder why it wasn't thought of before.

The number one show of my childhood

This show made me laugh a lot

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.

10/10 masterpiece. This is my best Cartoon Network show ever. I loved to see ash beat gym leaders, his rivals, I loved the movies, this even has best movie ever (Pokemon heroes) every season was great

I'm a huge fan of pokemon games and the anime too. I'm a huge fan of the series - miiplaza

This is just the older seasons that are the classics, the newer ones are terrible! Iris, from what I've seen, is even worse than Dawn. The older ones are pure genius! I think its best to put this show to rest and just show reruns of the older seasons.

Pokemon is NUMBER 1. If you think pokemon is stupid, you should think that digimon is stupid. Pokemon would be way better. I like the first season best because it's funny, but black and white has weird pokemon.

Well that's not a very good argument. You assume that every Pokemon hater likes Digimon. That is simply not true. If they hate both, what then? - FondaSu

This is the best (and first ) anime I've ever seen. It deserves a higher spot on the list. Go pokemon!

The Contenders

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 funny because the main characters are always fighting
And always get in situations and the funny thing about that is that its called regular show and it's the opposite of regular

If you like surreal humor like Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Robot Chicken you'll like this show. Really funny because of Rigby's stupidity. However, I don't like the episode Do Me a Solid or anything after halfway through season 3 and present because Benson got way angrier and there's too much romance in such a male dominated environment. Also why is Adventure Time higher than this masterpiece? It sucks! - metaldude8

18? What the heck man? This is the best Cartoon Network show EVER! It has everything action comedy laziness this show NEEDS to be number 1. It is so good that it makes all the other shows cry. YEAHYAH!

Really good show and who put Adventure Time on here that show sucks if you compare anything on this list to Regular Show, Mordecai: Other Shows: AAH! Mordecai and Rigby: OOH!

Robot Chicken Robot Chicken is an American stop motion sketch comedy television series, created and executive produced by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich along with co-head writers Douglas Goldstein and Tom Root for Adult Swim.

This show is ridiculously funny, even though seth greens voices are getting kinda annoying. One of the funniest shows on T.V.. Metalocalypse should also be up here. - deadgrass27

I was travelling with some friends once. We got to our hotel room at night, and one of them turned on Robot Chicken. We were laughing all night.

Just give the show a chance and you'll find out that it is the best show ever!

Great, except what does the robot chicken has to do with this show?

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.

WHY the HELL IS IT NOT ON NO. 10?!?!?!

Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy

Most of the Cartoon Network cartoons are really lame, but this is one is extremely creative and hilarious. I mean, there aren't many cartoons that feature the Grim Reaper as a main character, especially not if it's a kid show, but "Grim" is very funny and is easy to relate to. People used me in elementary school, just like how Billy and Mandy use Grim, but we both try to make the best of our lives. For those of you who are Invader ZIM fans, this is basically the Cartoon Network version, since they are both black comedies. Even so, this show is full of creativity, and shows that take risks are a winner in my book.

This and fosters home for imaginary friends define my childhood. They should take off level up, incredible crew, and almost naked animals and replace them with the good stuff!

This show was one of my favourites of all time, I loved it so much I wanna jerk off, that's how my penis always reacted

I love this show. It's truly amazing.

Futurama Futurama is an American animated science fiction sitcom created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

You have no sense of humor if you think Ed, Edd n Eddy, The Amazing World of Gumball, Family Guy and Robot Chicken are better than this masterpiece of a show!

I love this show!

Creeps me the f out

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.

Steven Universe is my number 1 favorite Cartoon Network show. I've grown in love with this show ever since it started airing. Shame it barely gets any airtime at all, since it only airs once per day rather than airing alongside the newer shows.

I thought this would be another "Uncle Grandpa", but I gave it a chance. It is now one of my favorite shows of all time. It has a great theme song, diverse characters (that are not annoying), and great morals. This show, along with Adventure Time and Regular Show, has got to be the best Cartoon Network show currently running.

Trash and will never ever be important - jkingsavage101

Fantastic Show! One of my favorites! - ZachTheSuperSaiyan

Teen Titans Teen Titans is an American animated television series created by Glen Murakami, based on the DC Comics characters of the same name.

This is the best show on Cartoon Network because its one of the few shows were the characters don't act stupid

I love this show and still do I just wish it was on Cartoon Network so I didn't have to record it on my cable box from boomerang at 11-12 pm. I wish the show on now had a good story in them. At least adventure time and regular show, the best shows on now, and dc nation show hope of good cartoons returning.

Teen Titans is one of my favorite shows till it ended sadly in 2006. But look on the bright side, DC Nation is making a new Teen Titans, but I don't know about it in chibi-form. But I might find out once its coming out on Cartoon Network!

Bring these teens back and trash the other

Naruto (Toonami)

This introduced me to the world of anime and I am so thankful for that. It is an amazing anime and I am always watching it on the computer. I like it better in Japanese instead of in English for some reason. I think it's awesome. - SasuNaru315

Naruto is the best cartoon "believe it" positive character teaches never ever give up and true meaning of friendship

This show was the first anime show I ever watched and led me to so many more. It has many different lessons in the show, has humor, and also who doesn't love action? This should be number 1

It's just awesome that toys turn into mutants! Good anime that ended I miss that anime

Aqua Teen Hunger Force Aqua Teen Hunger Force is an American animated sitcom created by Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro for Cartoon Network's late night programming block, Adult Swim.

Aquateen hungerforce is awesome season 1 THERE RATED TVPG AND TV14 is okay for tweens and teens its very tame season 2 THERE RATED TVPG AND TV14 is okay for tweens it got a little more mature but still tame season 3 14+ is okay for tweens but got way more mature with swears and bloody gore season 4 got more mature bad episodes grim reaper gutters all the 18+ episodes good boost mobile rated TVPG ALL THE TV14S MAYBE DICKESODE BECAUSE ITS RATED 14+ IN CANADA NOT MOONAJUANNA SEASON 5 GOOD ROBOTS EVERYWHERE THE REST IS 18+ SEASON 6 14+ TIME MACHINE SHE CREATURE TVPG 2 AND A HALF STARWARS OUT OF FIVE CREATURE FROM PLAQUE LAGOON SEASON 7 14+ MULTIPLE MEATS HANDS ON A HAMBURGER RABBOT REDUX SEASON 8 14+ WI TRI VAMPIRIOUS LAST DANCE FOR NAPKIN LAD THE CREDITOR LASANGA JUMPY GEORGE 18+ FREEDOM COBRA ALLEN PART 1 ALLEN PART 2 SEASON 9 AQUA SOMETHING YOU KNOW WHATEVER BIG BRO 14+

Every time I watch this show, I am always laughing and repeating their AMAZING quotes. All the characters have something funny about them.

This is my favorite show on adult swim I miss it a lot I wish they still showed 2 episodes at 12.30 and 12.45 instead of only 1 episode at 1.00

This deserves to be 1

Powerpuff Girls The Powerpuff Girls is an American animated television series created by animator Craig McCracken for Cartoon Network.

Great show, in my opinion I love it, its funny, and adorable at the same time.

This show just as funny as family guy just without cussing

Actually this show is boring.

The Boondocks The Boondocks is an American animated sitcom created by Aaron McGruder for Cartoon Network's late-night programming block, Adult Swim. It is based upon his comic strip of the same name. The series premiered on November 6, 2005.

It's so funny. The only problem is that they say "n****" every episode.

This show is genius and hilarious. Each episode has some deep meaning overwhelmed by comical satire and racial stereotype. - Mcgillacuddy

This makes Cleveland Show non-existent.

Because The Cleveland Show sucks.

Cowboy Bebop Cowboy Bebop is a 1998 anime television series animated by Sunrise featuring a production team led by director Shinichirō Watanabe, screenwriter Keiko Nobumoto, character designer Toshihiro Kawamoto, mechanical designer Kimitoshi Yamane, and composer Yoko Kanno.

Love this anime

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.

It's humor is clever. The animation is exotic. ALL the characters are great and have great design

Love that animation and lines the characters have! Everyone is all cheery and the cartoon just gets you in a happy mood! Plus, Chowder is a cute cat bear rabbit thing!

Best show ever. Come on the animation the voicing is just hilarious and just plain out funny. I could watch this show for days

Amazing The characters funny and have great personality plus the hole thing is just super funny, cute and well thought out it's defiantly in my top five.

Yu Yu Hakusho Yu Yu Hakusho is a manga franchise created by Yoshihiro Togashi. An anime adaptation consisting of 112 television episodes was directed by Noriyuki Abe and co-produced by Fuji Television, Yomiko Advertising, and Studio Pierrot. The television series originally aired on Japan's Fuji TV network from October ...read more.

I still remember to this day watching the very first premiere episode on Cartoon Network. And even then I was already immediately connected with the character Yusuke. I think it was the first show I actually felt this strongly about. English dubs, but still was decent. I would definitely recommend for any anime fan.

It's my favorite show when I watched it on
Jacksonville Florida. Briana gave me her yyh

Space Ghost Coast to Coast Space Ghost Coast to Coast is an American animated parody talk show, created by Mike Lazzo and hosted by the 1960s Hanna-Barbera cartoon character Space Ghost.

This, Harvey Birdman and The Venture Bros. are the best cartoons ever!
