Top Cartoons That Did Not Deserve CancellationCartoons today are being replaced by what some people call..."cartoons"...they are terrible, uninteresting and NOT funny or well thought up...
So here's a list of the top greatest shows that never should've been cancelled, in animation.
The Top Ten
An amazing show that is one of my favorites. I loved it as a kid, and I still love it today. Its one of those shows that just gets even better with time and you can enjoy it at any age! Although I did enjoy some episodes of the third season, I thought it was rather rushed (not to mention, but I think the episodes I disliked of the third season are probably the most disappointing of the series. ) This show has great and extremely relatable characters. I also think Sam and Jazz are great female role models for younger viewers. This show was truly Butch Hartman's best.
But when I think about it, I'm actually glad the show has ended with a very satisfying ending. You could tell that Phantom Planet WAS going to be the last episode of the series (everybody finds out that Danny's a ghost). Of course I still think the ending came WAY too soon but it was still a great way to rap up the series.
But if I'm such a big fan, wouldn't I want to bring the show back? I'm sorry, but ...more
Danny Phantom had a beautiful and unique storyline. It's character development was so deep, you could empathize with the boy's troubles. As compared to many of the cartoons nowadays, which seem to focus only on dry, pointless humor, this particular show teaches one so many values and truths of life - everlasting friendships, morality, discrimination, how blind people can be when they follow the crowd.
I love the relationships built in the story itself. The love triangle between Danny and his two love interests, between Danny and his ghost-hunting parents (who plan on destroying Danny's ghost half), and between Danny and his best friends.
The characters were given human qualities too. Danny's best friend experienced jealousy over ghost powers, his arch enemy faces decades of bitterness that led to plans of revenge, and Danny himself had to overcome his selfish desires of cheating his way out.
To sum it all up, Danny Phantom was a cartoon that should never have been ...more
The last season of Danny Phantom was way too rushed. I personally think that they should have had an episode (actually, an hour and a half long movie) where Dan escapes the thermos. I really hate the fact that one of my two favorite cartoons of all time was cancelled and ended the way it was.
I didn’t watch it, but, anyway it didn’t deserve cancellationV 14 Comments
... You made this list just so Zim could be number 1, didn't you? Well, I understand. It's a truly funny and interesting show that died way too soon.
Best darn show ever! Invader zim should keep being #1! All of the characters are my favorite! This show deserves to be back on air making having new episodes
Invader zim DESERVES to be up in 1 people! It COULD of stayed in nick but no that chunk of sponge on did it!
This should be 1stV 6 Comments
Animaniacs had it all: beautiful animation, catchy songs, fantastic writing, and great voice acting. It had humor that both kids and adults could enjoy. It was excellent on all levels. This show also gave us one of the few good examples of a cartoon spin-off: Pinky and the Brain. Animaniacs did not deserve to get cancelled as early as it did. I would have loved to have seen it run for one or two more seasons.
When I was 12,11,10, (I don't know, but I was young), but this show was awesome on the Hub, and Fox (for the older people), but I heard a fact of it getting canceled was because there was an increase in adults viewing of the demographics.
Still, I can see that they may have run out of ideas that time, but it was an awesome show by awesome people. It should never be rebooted, by no means, unless you're a comedic genius.
Personally I love them...considering now most kids would love this Cartoon now! I know I would and I am 17 but...I showed it to kids and they Loved it!
I'm aware that cartoons can easily turn bad if they stay on too long. Here's the thing: Jimmy Neutron still had infinitely more story potential to explore. I hope this show can somehow be brought back. It really deserved at least two more seasons than it got.
My favorite nick toons that should've been cancelled later or at LEAST 2011 or still go on
Should be #1
Pinky and the Brain was a classic that in my opinion provided excellent entertainment from kids and adults alike.
Would be sick film if made 2day
What can I say? It's a great show! The charecters are three-dimensional and have plenty of personality, the animation is top notch, the humor is hilarious, the Green Goblin's story arc was handeled brilliantly, the voice acting is great (especially Josh Keaton as Spider-man), and it somehow made teen drama interesting. It's just a great show!
It's a great show! The best show of the 2000's! It was nothing but but perfect! And where did it go? GETTING CANCELLED AFTER ONLY TWO SEASONS! I hate Disney, Marvel, and Sony for cancelling this! - LegoVaderBatmanDude
This is one of the best shows ever!
Spectacular Spider-man was the best animated Spider-man T.V. show in my opinion. Greg Weisman, who also gave us Gargoyles and Young Justice, helped create a program that was accurate to the source material, had likeable characters, a compelling plot, and even managed to surprise many dedicated Spidey fans. This version of Peter Parker/Spider-man was funny, witty, and was a character with whom kids, teens, and young adults could relate. It is a major shame that it was replaced with the disgrace that is Ultimate Spider-man.V 1 Comment
Shame on the network, it should have expanded on the third season and then Tails would have been given a larger focus on his role. Not to mention there gonna give Bunnie that too and introduce Knuckles or Metal Sonic. This is a much better darker interpretation than those recent Sonic games.
Too bad Ben Hurst is dead so reviving the series won't work
Bad thing is it ended of a cliffhanger. That's why it should be brought back. No sonic boom season 2! - spodermanfan1000
Best Sonic show ever!
A simply AMAZING show! It had stunning artwork and some of the most memorable character's ever seen in a cartoon (my opinion). Not to mention, its probably one of the best cartoons that created an excellent balance of action and comedy (also light and dark). Now we are stuck with Teen Titians Go, a show that cannot even be COMPARED to the brilliance of the original. (however, its not as bad as I expected, but it still defiantly has its flaws and I would much rather watch the original show any day! )
The character development as well as their interactions made this show amazing. The plot was well thought out as well. The animation and character designs were top notch in its time and still is today. The voice acting and directing is incredible!
It's was a great show but I never liked robin and starfire together I always wanted raven and robin but the new teen titan go sucks
I miss that show a lot
This should be way higher! Ranked 1st! It's a darn shame I discovered it after its cancellation. It shold have lasted longer than 2 seasons! - AinezoChan
Freakazoid is absolute genius. It took everything that was good about its predecessors and made them even better. It was more funny, more off the wall, and more underrated than any 90's toon.
Just watch, and bask in the brilliance. There's never been anything like it.
Freakazoid was, is and always will be in his own genre but got axed too soon..because of poor ratings kids were lame at that time or what
Gravity falls wasnt cancelled.
Just was so creative. Made me look forward to something new every episode
Season 5 was about to be upgraded to be good.
Wait what do 70s kids think when they grew up with Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings?
This was a masterpiece. It needs a third season!
Anything that's actually good these days will end up getting cancelled. It has been going on for a while: the networks, for some reason let disasters like Johnny Test, Teen Titans Go and Breadwinners stay on for a really long time. Fish Hooks, Yes, that disaster, ran for longer than this. This show was just starting to find an audience. With Gravity Falls, that ended to soon, but the creater decided that was when he wanted to end it. Craig McCracken wanted it to go on longer, but then Disney smashed a creation that was just starting to get some traction. Then, they killed it,vand They haven't been showing reruns. It was just so imaginative: it had great slapstick, The characters were silly, the concept wasn't like snything before it, and yet no, they didn't want it.
The plots were getting so good! I mean I just don't get the ending. I mean why show a new villain and kill off a character. Yup that's right they killed Kid Flash. He was my favorite character of them all. I swear WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE CANCELLED?!?!
Why would such a good show get cancelled? The plot and animation was the best I've ever seen. Just goes to show that if merchandise doesn't sell even awesome cartoons won't last.
Come on any DC comics fan knows this show is awesome! It SO didn't deserve to be cancelled.
It should've been ON DEMAND is what it should've been - xandermartin98
Take this off the list, it was an adult cartoon like the typical Cartoon Network shows, it should've aired on Cartoon Network instead of Nick.
Lol. It deserved to get cancelled.
Fantastic cartoons. Wish it was still on..
Why's this abomination on here?
It does not deserve to end I'm mean sure I loved rugrarts but that's when they were babies I want to watch something with kids my age!
Actually, it did deserve to end. Ruined my childhood of Rugrats X( - RB-Number1-fan
one of Tom Ruegger's most underrated cartoons ever made, only lasted about a season of 13 episodes, and the humour was based on 90s culture which was just brilliant.
I just found out about this Cartoon. Why did it get cancelled so early? It seems like a good show. I'll have to watch it one day. - nintendofan126
Road rovers was a awesome show! but then it was cancelled because merchandiser's were'nt interested! alway's about money...
Who would'nt love road rovers?! it was a 90's cartoon about six super dogs named hunter,Colleen,scout(nicknamed muzzle for the muzzle around his snout),shag,exile,and blitz!V 1 Comment
Could they not have waited until we got the Jungle Movie at least?
IT'S COMING BACK! : D
I hate that this show has been cancelled without the company letting the fans know that its REALLY gone now and the fact that they just suddenly stopped making episodes and never told anything to us about it is just straight up disgusting
It TOTALLY didn't deserve to be cancelled! But it's coming back this september so... Yay!
I really love the show there where very good things in there
I really like how they explored four things going on in their lives with school to Friendship and their families and keeping their secret from everyone else
This show gave TRON fans something to live for while waiting for TRON 3 (AKA TRON: Ascension). When I learned they cancelled it, I was devastated. The animation was beyond amazing, the story has a very good base and has enough wiggle room to thrown in some side-stories, and it gives more background story and better all-around perspective to the world of TRON. The worst part, just like TRON: Legacy, is the fact that Disney left us ON A CLIFF HANGER (because TRON 3 was cancelled)! And Disney won't listen to the obvious uproar its viewers has on the cancellation of both Ascension and Uprising. I can think of dozens of shows and movies Disney should cancel and replace with the TRON series. It appeals to both adult and child audiences. Adults can focus on the story, while the children get their eye candy with the amazing animation, action, and all those lightbikes and lightjets!
PEOPLE, JOIN THE UPRISING AND GIVE A MESSAGE TO Disney: TRON LIVES!
Hey, I'm the guy who had the "tell Disney Tron lives" comment. I'm back because I forgot to mention that THE SOUNDTRACK, DIALOGUE AND EVERYTHING IS AMAZING! It really amazes me how Disney pulled the plug on such a well founded and good show with so much potential.
Great characters, great stories, great voice-acting, pretty much one the best things Tron-related. It got canceled way too soon. This and Avengers:Earth's Mightiest Heroes are easily one Disney 's best shows.
Disney doesn't know what to cancel and what to not. eg-Tron uprising, Split Second.
Is this based on the movie?
The show is funny. it should be number two on this list right after invader zim
Defiantely one of those cartoons with so much potential to be cancelled so suddenly. I hope that 3rd season comes some day. They should at least have given the show a real PROPER ending.
This show is my 4th favorite Cartoon Network show and there is only 1 bad episode in my opinion. It is Ball of Revenge. Well anyways this show is awesome and should deserve a reboot and hopefully it doesn't end up like teen titans go and the powerpuff girls 2016 reboot. - spodermanfan1000
This should never ever ever go off the air... Ever. I watch it on Netflix consistently
I loved that show! I loved Courage's computer-what a jerk laugh out loud!
Best cartoon ever it probably would have lasted longer but I think my little pony friendship is magic (which is another awesome show may be the reason it ended
If Nick's president was a man, Harvey Beaks would have never gotten cancelled. But it did, because a woman is Nick's president. - kcianciulli
This was one of the best animated shows of all time and should definitely have had a third and fourth season. #bringbackavengersemh #joshkeatonisspiderman
THIS SHOW WAS AWESOME HAD AN AWESOME INTRO FLESHED OUT HEROES AND VILLANS IT WAS PLAIN AWESOME JUST LIKE JLU.
Still get goosebumps when I read the cartoon title 😢😢😢😢
IT WAS AWESOME IT TOLD THE STORY LINE IN THE COMIC SERIES CALLED DAYS OF FUTURE PAST WATCH IT!
I totally <3 Kim Possible a lot! And now, it's replaced with Phineas and Ferb! How could you do this to us, Disney Channel?! WHYY?! Why in the hell, Disney Channel, did you do this?!
"The city of Townsville! " Whenever I heard those words I flopped down on the couch haha!
Seriously, Whatever happened to him?
I really wished It lasted longer. It has a great plot.
F-zero Gp Legend should be brought back in the air
While most of these shows had at least two seasons, catscratch only had one. - ilovelife
Who put this on this list is evil - atomicboom
This show always made me laugh. Its not on movie anymore either. The movies they make have Yoshi replaced by Toad.
I wanna see more monsters and robots in one of my favorite monster battle shows! Plus, when will the gang try to save their home planet?
It absolutely DISGUSTS me to know that crap like what they show on Cartoon Network now gets undeservingly continue, while amazing shows like Sym-Bionic Titan doesn't even get a second chance
Legit raw fights, good animation and an awesome story
Dexter was so great! I wish they would bring it back! What a great show!
