Top Ten Cartoons That Never Should've Been Cancelled

The Top Ten

1 Courage the Cowardly Dog Courage the Cowardly Dog Courage the Cowardly Dog is an American animated horror comedy television series created by John R. Dilworth for Cartoon Network as part of the network's Cartoon Cartoons block.

I'm so sorry because they cancelled courage the cowardly dog! Courage is one of dozens of cartoons that I grew up, like dexter's lab, the powerpuff girls, lazlo camp, tom and jerry, edd edd and eddy... I just love them so much, and I really wish to come back at T.V... it's not so fun watching them online:(

Bring this back! It was truly great and I love the show! "STUPID DOG YOU MADE ME LOOK BAD! HOOGABOOGABOOGAARR! " classic.

About five years old I asked my mom and dad to turn on Courage the Cowardly Dog because it was my favorite show and then when they turned it on there was no episodes and I cried because that was my favorite show ever when I grew up I wanted to buy this show but I didn't probably because I was too busy but I'm planning on doing it because this was by far my favorite show as a little kid

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.

The only shoe I believe was actually cancelled and also needed more of a chance, most of these had a good run and I am happy that they were put to rest instead of being pressured into dreadful plots with over exaggerated and awful characters of their former loveable characters. Sponge bob.

Kids adored this show. Stupid triggered parents said this show was "too inappropriate" is just stupid. I get it that it costed too much, but if they stopped Spongebob, a very overrated show that needs a rest, this show could work. It had low ratings back then, but now it's one of the most highest rated shows on the network. And plus, I'm getting tired of watching the exact same 45 episodes on Hulu. Please bring it back.

Nickelodeon producers were complete idiots by cancelling this awesome show. They cannot just leave such a good series at that. BRING BACK INVADER ZIM!

With the power of paper, They people of OMI press rose Zim from the dead! Next, Wander Over Yonder!

3 Dexter's Laboratory Dexter's Laboratory Dexter's Laboratory is an American comic science fiction animated television series created by Genndy Tartakovsky for Cartoon Network, and the first of the network's Cartoon Cartoons. The show is about a kid scientist named Dexter that has a sister named Dee Dee that keeps breaking into his lab.

This show brings tears to me when I think about it thats how amazing this show was. The animation was great, the plots were witty and funny and great voice acting. They just don't make cartoons like these anymore

As funny for adults as it was for kids.

Best cartoon ever in my childhood... I feel sorry for the children who watch dumb ass shows like doraemon etc... I still miss it... Bring it back

This was better then jimmy neutron

4 Rugrats Rugrats Rugrats is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain for Nickelodeon.

they never should've stopped wearing diapers!

Great show! If it was still on then The Rugrats Movie 4 wouldn't just be a rumor, it would be a gurantee!

When ever I think about this show I tear up, this is one of my favorite childhood shows. Please! Bring it back!

Still on TeenNicks splat block

5 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.

Danny Phantom had so much to this, so much potential to this ghostly world. I would have loved to see Danny developing new ghost abilities, and his complicated relationships with Vlad or Valerie sorting out. I especially waited for the Ultimate Enemy, where we would have seen legendary ghosts like Clockwork, and the rematch with Dark Danny. Listen up, Nickelodeon. If Danny Phantom returns like old times, the world will shake with happy screams at seeing our dearest Ghost Boy

Danny Phantom was a great show. In my opinion better then Spongebob, the failrly odd parents, AND many of the other nickelodeon shows combined! It is really underrated, and should be brought back!

It was a cool super hero show on Nickelodeon to bad it's cancelled.

6 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.

The worst part is that the ending was an open door to a 6th season. And did we get a season 6? NOPE! We got that abomination known as Teen Titans Go. BUT, we can still fight to get Teen Titans a 6th season, even if Teen Titans Go gets cancelled or not. Now who's with me?!?!

So good. Too bad they replaced it with the very crappy Teen Titans Go.

This show should never been cancelled. It has everything that a cartoon should have. Action, adventure, comedy, drama, romance, the full package. This is doubtless the greatest action Cartoon Network show ever.

Make Teen Titans Great Again

7 My Life as a Teenage Robot My Life as a Teenage Robot My Life as a Teenage Robot is an American animated science fantasy television series created by Rob Renzetti for Nickelodeon.

As a child, I kinda just watched this show due to the interesting concept of a teenage robot, but I never fully appreciated it. Now watching it, I realize that for many reasons it (and Invader Zim) are much better than shows Nick kept around, like SpongeBob or Fairly Odd Parents

Come on lets just bring back all the old shows

I loved this show. I have mixed feelings about when I see it now. I'm happy that I see it and the humor but I'm sad that it was cancelled and I'm angry that they replaced it with cartoons like sanjy and Craig and breadwinners - Helloworld

A crown jewel that got buried by dirt

8 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.

Mainly because I liked the crossovers with fairly odd parents and there won't be anymore now that this show is cancelled

Why IS Dexter's Lab First!? It's Jimmy Neutron That Should Be Most Missed!

Loved this show when I was younger. It should have lasted longer.

What a mistake by Nick for cancelling this classic.

9 Ed, Edd n Eddy Ed, Edd n Eddy Ed, Edd n Eddy is a Canadian-American animated comedy television series created by Danny Antonucci for Cartoon Network, and the sixth of the network's Cartoon Cartoons. The series revolves around three preteen boys: Ed, Edd "Double D," and Eddy—collectively known as "the Eds"—who live in a suburban more.

Reruns would be really nice, though it ended properly with a series finale that destroys the status quo, so I doubt a reboot would be needed.

It got a series finale movie, so it wasn't really canceled. Still, they need to show more reruns of it on Cartoon Network.

Childhood memories shouldn't be forgotten or erased like they did with all these good cartoons. I promise you if they bring back all these childhood cartoons, every adult around the world would toon in just to remeber how good the cartoons were back then.

Any day over this show

10 Tom & Jerry

TOM AND JERRY WAS CANCELLED? That is my life right there, I can't believe that people would cancel such a classic! The cat and mouse chase has been popularized because of Tom and Jerry. It's so funny!

Tom and Jerry is the best cartoon of all times! I used to watch it from the first days of my life, till the moment when I lose eyes!

This was the funniest show I ever seen. I use to laugh at it until I barfed my brains out!

It got bad when they crossed over with Robin Hood or Sherlock Holmes - Kid_ethinederland

The Contenders

11 Blue's Clues Blue's Clues Blue's Clues is an American children's television series that premiered on Nickelodeon in 1996. Producers Angela Santomero, Todd Kessler, and Traci Paige Johnson combined concepts from child development and early-childhood education with innovative animation and production techniques that helped their more.

I hope one day Blue's Clues will be back on the air! I know they won't have the same actor playing as Steve, but at least it should be good.

Blue's Clues was canceled? Now way! That's like my entire childhood right there.

I'm 16 and I still like this show! Bring it back please!

Yo I used to watch this at daycare bros

12 Rocket Power Rocket Power Rocket Power is an American animated television series. The series debuted on Nickelodeon on August 16, 1999. The series ended on July 30, 2004 after four seasons.

I don't think that this show deserves all the hate it gets. It's pretty good, and I can't do anything that they can. It's just a cartoon, and I'm not saying this because I like it.

Was crazy about this show when I was younger. - Cincin845

13 Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life is an American animated television series created by Joe Murray for Nickelodeon. The series centers on the surreal life of an anthropomorphic Australian-immigrant wallaby named Rocko as well as his friends: the gluttonous steer Heffer, the neurotic turtle Filburt, and Rocko's faithful more.

42 is the meaning of life, and the place on the list that this show is currently at as I am typing this comment - xandermartin98

14 A Pup Named Scooby-Doo

15 Codename: Kids Next Door

One of the greatest shows of all time to ever meet Cartoon Network!

Immature yet genius at the same time

This was an awesome show!

16 Young Justice

I love Young Justice sooo much! My brother and I used to watch it all the time. After my brother and I finished the second season on Netflix we were really disappointed to find out that it was canceled. Please bring it back, cancel teen titans go cause all cartoon network is doing is making a mockery of the original teen titans cartoon.

Dark side appeared in the end of season 2 but I think the young justice team won't win against him because dark side is the feared being in the universe.

True that uncle grandpa has got to be the worst cartoon ever created bring back the good old toons not this crap of today

They announced this show is coming back. REJOYCE!

17 Max And Ruby

It was a childhood favorite and I still love it at age 18. I've always loved the theme song, and Max is the sweetest thing ever, these jackasses need to stop disrespecting it!

Max and Ruby has been renewed for another season. it is one of Nick's longest running shows.

Lame..ruby is a total bleeping mess

Acually its not canselled they started a new season and their parents finally appear. I did like tthe old 2002-2004 version of max and ruby. The 2007-2012 version is meh. 2012-2015 version is bad. But check out season 6 2016-present

18 Planet Sheen Planet Sheen Planet Sheen is an American CGI animated television series. It is a spinoff series in the Jimmy Neutron franchise, focusing on the show's comic relief, Sheen Estevez, as he gets stranded on another planet. The show was hated by critics and fans for not using any of the original cast (besides the obvious), more.

This show deserves to be cancelled. It sucks. - Tyler730

Sheen, Do not push this button,
Dogs like cheese, cows like monkeys! Planet Sheen is oh, so funky!
Okay, I get the last part, but the first few lines, you're just off bro!
Skateboards rock! Shoes like feetsies, you are watching Planet Sheensies
Okay, it's not called "Planet Sheensies"
You know what they say Sheen; it ain't par-tay until somebody breaks a tongue! Check!
That's just creepy
Tuna noodle casserole!
Pomegranate stew
Stranded on a planet...
Whatcha gonna do?
Change your name to Larry?
Rub bacon on the queen...
It all makes perfect sense on...

19 Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends is an American animated television series created by Craig McCracken for Cartoon Network Studios.

Such a great show, better than all other shows on here. That is saying something considering Jimmy Neutron and Dexter's were awesome shows.

Best show on Cartoon Network

I love this show, but it's 2017, and reboots of good stuff are bad these days. I don't want a good show to have a bad reboot ;-;. Like look at what happened to the PPG and the Teen Titans!

This show and We Bare Bears are the best shows on CN

It was aired on both Nickelodeon and Nicktoons on July 9, 2005. It is an adaptation of TenNapel's graphic novel, Gear, which is also the name of the cats' monster truck. The series more.

Why did it have to be cancelled after only one season? It could have been Nickelodeon's version of We Bare Bears! Just goes to show you how bad Nickelodeon is at treating most of its shows. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
