Top 10 Cartoon Network / Adult Swim Shows

This doesn't include reruns played on Cartoon Network or Adult Swim.
The Top Ten
1 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.

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 like it, but the show has some problems. Some the characters are complete ass hats for no reason and almost never got a commupapance. Nazz never really did anything. Some episodes were just flat out torture porn towards one of the Eds (Usually Eddy). The Kankers were kinda annoying and over used in the first season. Lastly, the 5th season was pretty weak. But I still like the show a lot.

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. )

I love this show. It's one of the few cartoons I watched as a kid that's just as good now that I'm older. With an unique animation/art style, funny writting, and great characters with humorous personalities, Ed Edd n' Eddy is probably my favorite children's cartoon of all time.

2 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.

Dragon ball z was my brothers child hood and many other kids too. It has Planet busters, hilarous moments like with hercules and buu and many more. My older brothers watched dragon ball z and I was only 4 when I watched this show with them. It was pased down to me by my brothers and I passed dragon ball z to my younger brother! We all love dragon ball z and dragon ball z deserves to be in 1 PLACE!

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!

Dragonball is by far the best show ever. All three series are filled with action and adventure. Many of episodes threwout the series have monemts in them in which a person can somewhat relate to, and it shows how hard it can be tomake dificult decisions the seperate a boy from a man.

3 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.

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"

Haha I love this show it was hilarious but then actually scary sometimes! He was the best dog ever and was ready to leave in a jiff haha

I still watch old episodes of this on Youtube. I wish it was still on...

4 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 (Fat, Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Bitchy Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Fat, Idiotic ...read more.

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.

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.

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

I'm pretty sure most people on this site are 12-16 so they really don't watch Family Guy, there parents won't let them.

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

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).

I hate Rick and Morty and it's one of the 11th best T.V. shows of all time. only one bloody season of what?! Some drunk grandpa and his grandson going on dumb adventures. When I first heard about it I thourght it would be good. But then when I watched the first episode it litterally stunk up the cartoon line I hate this show!

If you haven't seen it give it a chance! This is so well written that idiots and intelligent people alike can find endless humor in each episode. They also like to play around with darkness and sadness from time to time. Love it!

6 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.

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!

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. /

Finally! A good list that appreciates the shear genius and great story telling of this show!

Seasons 1-4 are great
Season 5 is just pure badass!

Best show ever, really.
And it gave a sense of good never beats evil but it is fun watching how he tries.

7 Adventure Time with Finn & Jake

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!

How can you not love this show? Every episode has new characters and a fantastic and creative story, plus the characters have great personalities and design I live in Canada and watched Adventure Time online before I could get in on T.V..

Adventure Time is the greatest animated fantasy epic of a show in my opinion. I am only 13 and have seen other awesome shows on Cartoon Network but none can beat Adventure Time. I love Regular Show as well.

8 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.

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.

This show is whimsical and unique all around. The blending of animation styles is really eye catching, and it's just plain silly fun.

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

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

9 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.

A creative and friendly show.
A show which defines the true meaning of friendship

Is a cool show

10 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. It was first broadcast in Japan on April 1, 1997, in the United States ...read more.

The guy in top comments whoever said black and white generation has the best storyline has obviously not watched pokemon close enough. Diamond and Pearl was way better than black and white. Black and white is so stupid especially because all that iris does is call ash a little kid when he is clearly the better pokemon trainer. I wish ash would get a fiery attitude and battle her with his best pokemon and crush her. And cilan is always ranting on about stupid recipes and crap. Pokemon sucks now with black and white but it used to be THE best show on cartoonetwork

It would be alright if Pikachu wasn't OP, Ash didn't try to tell legendaries what to and if there weren't so many plot holes. Ash meets legendaries then ALWAYS throws commands at them like "LUGIA FLY OVER THERE" and "Mewtwo, USE HYPER BEAM! " Pikachu is so OP and is probably level 100. He always has to win every battle, and it's annoying. If he doesn't win then he "Rematches" until he wins. Plot holes are everywhere. One episode had an insult to Female Gentalia.

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.

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

The Contenders
11 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.

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!

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!

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!

The best cartoon since the 90s. Love it. It's the most realistic. I love how there's no sound affects which can real annoying. The characters are loveable in every way.

12 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.

The fact ATHF and Robot Chicken are so low is just sad. A lot of people just say they are both stupid before they have even seen them. They are both hilarious espically Robot Chicken. If you like Family Guy you will like them.

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.

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.

I think this should not even be here. Bleach should be at 6 this show is boring and it is a waste of time. Dragonball and Death Note are better

13 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.
14 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!

I love this show. It's truly amazing.

Billy was so funny.

15 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!

Creeps me the f out

I love this show!

16 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.

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.

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.

This show really is awesome, and I agree that it's currently the highest quality cartoon that CN is offering.

Fantastic Show! One of my favorites!

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

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!

So? The new stupid dumb ass show teen titans go is going to drop your score! P.S. Teen titans go is really stupid.

Why did they cancel this show? It had great characters and a brilliant plot. Take off the new one and bring back this one! Also, evil beware, we have waffles :D.

18 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.

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

This is what made stop being a nerd. Best thing that ever happened to T.V.. The characters are awesome and the fighting amazing. Thumbs up for naruto

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

19 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.

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

20 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.

Actually this show is boring.

21 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.

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

This makes Cleveland Show non-existent.

22 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

23 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.

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!

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.

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

Just like Camp Lazlo, why was this canceled so early? More people should have been watching this!

24 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

25 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!
