21 Steven Universe 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.

22 King of the Hill King of the Hill King of the Hill is an American animated sitcom created by Mike Judge and Greg Daniels that ran from January 12, 1997 to May 6, 2010 on Fox.

I love this show! Funny and awesome at the same time! I love the animation and characters. Hank's friends were funny and weird at the same time, Boomhauer talks fast, Dale's quotes make me rofl and others were funny! The episodes were great, even the old ones. Every time I see this show, it makes me want to say "I sell propane and propane accessories. " Why the creators quit this show? This is the best show I ever seen on Adult Swim!

I watch this show all the time - njmyi

This is a good show I'll tell you what!

The best show ever

26 Death Note Death Note Death Note is a Japanese television drama series based on the manga series of the same name by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. The show is centered around Light Yagami a promising highschooler and aspiring detective with a strong sense of "justice".

This was one of my most favorite shows I missed when Toonami left. Next to Naruto, Bo-bo-bo, sailor moon etc. Now a days, things are out of hand, please bring back the anime we loved to watch on Friday- Saturday!

This is undoubtably my favorite show. After every episode ended, I couldn't help but craving more. This definitely deserves to be up higher than 37th place.

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

Love this anime

28 Ben 10 Ben 10

I do like all 3 of Ben 10 series. Can't wait till the fourth coming out. Oh, did you know Ben Tennyson teams up with Rex from Generator Rex? They appearred together in a 1-hour episode only on Generator Rex and they teamed up to defeat a half-alien, half-EVO monster. That episode was bad-ass awesome!

BEN 10 IS THE BEST! I AM HIS BIGGEST FAN! I do like all 3 of Ben 10 series. Can't wait till the fourth coming out. Oh, did you know Ben Tennyson teams up with Rex from Generator Rex? They appearred together in a 1-hour episode only on Generator Rex and they teamed up to defeat a half-alien, half-EVO monster. That episode was bad-ass awesome!

I don't know why this show isn't #1 it has everything a good T.V. series needs it has action, comedy, adventure, sci-fi, and it has lasted for 8 years (so far), and the series has the veiwer in suspence the whole time!
I think the original version is best, and everyone else thinks so too, and now they are going back in time and feutering new adventures of 10 year old Ben, and the 16 year old Ben! I also love the new artwork in Ben 10: Omniverse, because like the original series it has a bright theme to it and seems much funnier than, Alien Force and Ultimate Alien. Stay tuned for the new Ben 10 series Ben 10: Omniverse (Coming to Cartoon ...more

The manga has been adapted into an original video animation (OVA) produced by Production I.G in 1998, and an anime series produced by Toei Animation, which began broadcasting in Japan in 1999 and has aired 749 episodes to date.


Not as awesome as Gurren Lagann, the show about galaxy sized robots and giant robotic wars, no other anime ever matches it, it beat One Piece by 1000000000000000000%, One Piece is nothing compared to Gurren Lagann. - nelsonerica

30 Total Drama Island Total Drama Island Total Drama Island is a Canadian animated television series which premiered in Canada on Teletoon on July 8, 2007 and on June 5, 2008 in the U.S.

This show takes all the concept from the survivor series and make it work into a fantastic cartoon series with memorable cast of characters. - Larrysegale1990

This is my favorite show on cartoon network and it is because it is just funny and I don't know why but heather is my favorite just because how smart she plays the game she is bad ass!

I am disappointed in Pakitew Island as I hate most of the characters but this one is amazing, back then no one was backstabbing *cough* Heather *cough* no one wasn't really bad, no one was killing for a million bucks, since back then they were a hundred-thousand, it was awesome.

Ok...maybe they have to stop making total drama...

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.

34 What a Cartoon
35 Looney Tunes Looney Tunes Looney Tunes is an American animated series of comedy short films produced by Warner Bros. from 1930 to 1969 during the golden age of American animation, alongside its sister series Merrie Melodies.

This show is just so classic. It shouldn't be this low.

When family guy and American Dad are above this, you know there's some issues. - SevenTreeTool

This show is cool how come this is lower than steven universe plus steven is a fat ass...

I like all episodes except for "See ya later Gladiator"...

The first was broadcast for 167 episodes on Yomiuri TV in Japan from October 16, 2000 until September 13, 2004. The second series, called Inuyasha: The Final Act, began airing more.

I like inuyasha because it reminds me of the T.V. Show Ranma 1/2 and the maker Rumiko Takahashi also the main characters have the same voice

Love this show its great! (: I love all the action, adventure and romance c:

38 Codename Kids Next Door

I grew up with KND. My sister and I are now teenagers but when we were younger this was our go to show, and it still would be. The very few times that they show this nowadays are the best times ever. I remember watching the last episode ever, and crying at the end. Only show that's ever made me cry. I will miss this show forever. There were so many great characters and episodes, but I think the best episodes were the ones where all the adults got together to get back at knd and excluded the toilet guy and the other best episode is when numbah 4 goes to the all girls school. Also when numbah 4 plays dodge ball, that is a good one two. But overall the best episode is and always will be the last episode when you find out that numbah one's dad... Never mind. I won't spoil it. There are so many classics I can't name them all and I will always miss and always love KND. Oh no... I am crying just remembering the great times watching this show as a child. Just such a good show I miss it all ...more

This show is so much more than a kid's shows. I just adore everything about it: the art style, the plots, the music, etc. Also, the characters get so much development throughout the seasons; it's really amazing. The series finale was absolutely perfect.

I always thought this was the coolest show ever. I still think it's terrific, if a bit immature.

Okay, how is this show not above Adventure Time? Come on, Kids Next Door was a show I loved more than Adventure Time, even now as a teenager. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
