Best Cartoons of 2017

With last year's Best Cartoons of 2016 list going over so well, I figured that I might as well make a list celebrating the best of television animation to start the new year. Rick and Morty is starting its third season this year, Adventure Time is still going strong after seven seasons, Bojack Horseman has become one of the best shows on television, Regular Show is coming to its conclusion, Star vs. The Forces of Evil is doing a great job at filling Gravity Falls' void on Disney XD, and plenty of newcomers such as Nick's surprise hit The Loud House are already leaving an impact. 2016 was a really good year for cartoons, so let's hope that that string of success not only carries over into 2017, but many years going forward.

22 Welcome to the Wayne Welcome to the Wayne

It's a great show! I love how each episode shapes each other and lead to the next mystery and adventure. It is totally different from other shows I have and is makes you wonder what will happen next.

It started as a series of shorts, now it is one of the best nickelodeon shows there is.

24 Pokemon: Sun & Moon

Am I the only one that thinks x and y was much better than sun and Moon cause I've watched almost 20 episodes of sun and moon and it has been so underwhelming that I can't even pull myself through another episode

Its bad but I would prefer this than black and white

Ya I also amazing

It is a new take on the anime having a more humorous side than any other season the only downside is that it can get REALLY overwhelming with the faces it makes me think "So this is Pokemon huh? " it makes me sad
to see my favorite cartoon go from a kind of serious and adventurous from XY to a season that based on overwhelming humor but I'm not quitting it. I'll still watch Pokemon even if it makes me feel uncomfortable seeing a weird and a tiny bit disgusting face every 5 seconds.

26 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

This is one of my favorite nickelodeon cartoons of all time. Its action packed, funny, deep, and the animation is good. They are constantly adding new problems to the turtles' life, an they are only slowly taking care of them. I can't wait until they beat shredder and april and donnie end up a couple.

Nickelodeon finest show in currenly decade

Love it!


27 Hotel Transylvania: The Series

This reminded me of Ruby Gloom. That is a good thing, by the way. - FondaSu


28 Milo Murphy's Law Milo Murphy's Law Milo Murphy's Law is an American animated television series from the creators of Phineas and Ferb, Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh, which premiered on October 3, 2016 on Disney XD.

From the creators of Phineas and Ferb, this show about a misfortunate teenage boy is just oozing with charm and creativity. I'm a fan of Weird Al Yankovic, and it's really cool to hear him play the main character in his own cartoon series. The show's only had a handful of episodes so far, but it's already proven that it belongs in the realm of television animation. - phillysports

The only cartoon my mother joins in watching... Brilliant cartoon just like Phineas and Ferb!

Best cartoon show
