Top Cartoons That Did Not Deserve Cancellation

Cartoons 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

1 Danny Phantom Danny Phantom Danny Phantom is an American animated series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon. It was produced by Billionfold Studios and distributed in Canada by Nelvana, a Canadian animation company. The series follows a teenage boy who, after an accident with an unpredictable portal between the human world more.

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.

Honestly I wanted to see the new beginings

2 Invader Zim Invader Zim Invader Zim is an American animated television series created by Jhonen Vasquez for Nickelodeon. The series centers on an extraterrestrial named Zim from the planet Irk, and his mission to conquer Earth and enslave the human race along with his malfunctioning robot servant GIR.

... 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!

I guess people didn't like the gore...i like a little bit of sappiness, but not a whole box of happiness and smiles, so I watch this.

3 Animaniacs Animaniacs Steven Spielberg Presents Animaniacs is an American animated comedy television series produced by Amblin Television label in collaboration with Warner Bros.

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.

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!

4 The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius is an American computer animated television series created by John A. Davis. It is the first spin-off to the 2001 film Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.

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

5 Pinky and the Brain

Pinky and the Brain was a classic that in my opinion provided excellent entertainment from kids and adults alike.

6 The Spectacular Spider-Man

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!

7 Sonic SatAM

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

8 Freakazoid Freakazoid Freakazoid! is an American animated television series created by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini and developed by Tom Ruegger for the Kids' WB programming block of The WB.

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.

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

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

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! )

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

The Contenders

11 ChalkZone ChalkZone ChalkZone is an American animated television series created by Bill Burnett and Larry Huber for Nickelodeon.

Season 5 was about to be upgraded to be good.

12 Gravity Falls Gravity Falls Gravity Falls is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation that first aired on Disney Channel, and then on Disney XD from June 15, 2012 to February 15, 2016.

This was a masterpiece. It needs a third season!

14 Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life is an American animated television series created by Joe Murray for Nickelodeon.

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.

15 Young Justice

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.

16 Wander Over Yonder Wander Over Yonder more.

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.

17 W.I.T.C.H. W.I.T.C.H. W.I.T.C.H. is a French-Italian-American animated television series based on the Italian comic book series of the same name.
18 Drawn Together Drawn Together Drawn Together is an American adult animated sitcom which ran on Comedy Central from October 27, 2004 to November 14, 2007. The series was created by Dave Jeser and Matt Silverstein, and uses a sitcom format with a TV reality show setting.

Lol. It deserved to get cancelled.

Fantastic cartoons. Wish it was still on..

Why's this abomination on here?

19 Tiny Toons
20 All Grown Up! All Grown Up! All Grown Up! is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky and Gábor Csupó for Nickelodeon. It is a spin-off of Rugrats, and takes place about ten years after the original series where the characters are now pre-teen to teenage.Tommy, Dil, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Kimi, Angelica, more.

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
