Cartoon Network has made a lot of good cartoons in its prime time. So I made this list counting down the best creators of animated television series that have been created by them for Cartoon Network. Feel free to vote or add more items to the list if you would like.

The Top Ten

Samurai Jack is back with Season 5 on the Toonami block on Adult Swim. There are two things you should know. One, I can already tell this revival is going to be better than Teen Titans Go! and the 2016 reboot of The Powerpuff Girls. Two, things are definitely going to be more mature and intense in this new and final season of Samurai Jack. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
