Top 10 Cartoons That Should Not Have Reboots

Cartoons that are great, are destined to have bad reboots. These cartoons may not have planned reboots yet. But they will when they end, and they will suck. (We are only putting show on here that are considered great and/or popular/overrated)

The Top Ten

1 Steven Universe Steven Universe Steven Universe is an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network. The show's based around a young boy by the name of Steven Universe, who is a hybrid of a gem and a human. He lives with his gem friends, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl.

The show is still new and going strong, so I'm sure they won't be making a reboot anytime soon. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

If it gets ruined in the reboot, the fanbase will worsen - TwilightKitsune

Please don't make a reboot of a very good show - DWisawesomethe3rd

Nah, they SHOULD cancel this show and make a reboot of it, run by the creator of Brandy and Mr. Whiskers. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

2 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. The series follows the adventures of Dipper Pines and his twin sister Mabel in the fictional town of Gravity more.

We all saw what Teen Titans and Powerpuff Girls did with their reboots. Watching reruns of old episodes is better than having new, awful episodes. - Catacorn

Same with this one. - lolololololol

3 Adventure Time Adventure Time Adventure Time is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network. The series follows the adventures of a boy named Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio)—a dog with the magical power to change shape more.

Also this one (The show really got deeper over the seasons) - lolololololol

I honestly don't care how deep it got. The only way this show would ever become good is if Chris Savino took over, and was rebooted. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

4 Regular Show Regular Show Regular Show is an American animated television series created by J. G. Quintel for Cartoon Network that premiered on September 6, 2010. The series revolves around the lives of two friends, a blue jay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby—both employed as groundskeepers at a local park.

5 SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 18 years, and is beginning its 11th season. The show more.

My username states the obvious, and since the show is only getting better again with its Post-Sequel episodes, a reboot would be detrimental to the entire SpongeBob SquarePants franchise! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

6 Voltron

Too late

unless you're talking about legendary defender

7 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.

It would be a great shame to ruin Cartoon Network's longest-running animated series with a god-awful reboot. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Ed, Edd n Eddy = How to scare kids
Ed, Edd n Eddy reboot = How to terrify kids
Which Ed is the scariest. The jawbreaker in their mouths = nightmare fuel.

8 Teen Titans Go! Teen Titans Go! 'Teen Titans Go!' is an American animated television series produced by Cartoon Network. The show follows a superhero group called the Teen Titans, and shows what happens when they go home and have silly adventures. This show is Cartoon Network's revival of the popular 2003-2006 American animated television more.

At the rate this show is sadly going... We could get a reboot of a reboot. Maybe... Teen Titans Go.. Again? - lolololololol

Looks like this show is getting even more babyish than ever!

They should cancel ttg, and bring back the original teen titans. - Catacorn

No, wait. Maybe a reboot is a good idea for TTG. They should make serious reboot, like the old Teen Titans. - TwilightKitsune

9 Young Justice Young Justice

This extraordinary show should never been done and ruined by some bad reboot as it did to Teen Titans.

We learned from Teen Titans again. - lolololololol

I loved this show - AnonymousChick

It's getting a rebooted season this year 2017

10 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.

This show should get back on air after that Planet Sheen.

We've already seen what happened with Planet Sheen, so it's best to leave this show just the way it is instead of butchering it. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The Contenders

11 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.

It's good as it is. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Butch Hartman is a great writer and all, but considering how the modern seasons of The Fairly OddParents are starting to make modern SpongeBob look like pre-movie SpongeBob, I would definitely NOT want this precious Nicktoon gem to be rebooted. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

12 Battle of the Planets
13 We Bare Bears We Bare Bears An animated comedy show by Daniel Chong about three different species of bears - Grizzly, Panda and Ice bear (polar bear). Since they were little, they wanted to get adopted by owners separately. But then they missed each other too much, so they reunited again. Now as adults, they now live in a cave more.

Imagine Daniel Chong leaving when the We Bare Bears show when having a reboot and the writer of Teen Titans GO is now the writer. *shivers*

14 Saber Rider and The Star Sheriffs
15 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.

Because if you take a boy genius with a dumb sister, you're probably going to get a bad sitcom full of internet memes and a remix of the powderpuff girls 2016.

16 Denver the Last Dinosaur
17 Legend of Zelda
18 The Amazing World of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball is a British-Australian-German-American-Irish children's animated television series created by Ben Bocquelet for Cartoon Network.

Please don't make an awful reboot of my favorite show - DWisawesomethe3rd

19 Super Mario World
20 Kim Possible Kim Possible Kim Possible is an American animated children's television series created by Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle for Disney Channel.

I absolutely love this show but I don't want it or it's legacy butchered by an awful reboot like what happened to Teen Titans and Powerpuff Girls - bobbythebrony

21 Chowder Chowder Chowder is an American animated television series created by C.H. Greenblatt for Cartoon Network. The series follows an aspiring young child named Chowder and his day-to-day adventures as an apprentice in Chef Mung Daal's catering company.
22 The Fairly Oddparents The Fairly Oddparents The Fairly OddParents is an American animated television series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon.
23 The Powerpuff Girls The Powerpuff Girls The Powerpuff Girls is an American animated television series created by animator Craig McCracken for Cartoon Network. The main characters of this show are Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. The show is about the Professor Utonium creating three little superhero girls that save the day from villains. more.

Seeing how bad their 2002 movie did, I of all people dislike the original series for 3 reasons. 1. Bubbles' voice was so squeaky, whoever was responsible for it did a terrible job. 2. Buttercup's voice didn't have to be all raspy, for that is until the recast back in 2015. 3. The 2002 film didn't even get a sequel! By now, we should've seen an official teaser trailer for crying out loud!?!?

I love the original, but the reboot sucks - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

I hate the original, but the reboot can have its flaws.

It was but completely different. Its like Gen 2.

24 Button Moon

Do not reboot it. They already rebooted Andy Pandy, Bill and Ben The Flowerpot Men, and The Magic Roundabout.

We're off to Button Moon! And we've followed Mr Spoon, Button Moon! (Button Moon! ) Button Moon! (Button Moon! )

25 The Lion Guard The Lion Guard The Lion Guard is an American animated television series developed by Ford Riley based on Disney's 1994 film The Lion King. The series was first broadcast with a television movie titled The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar on Disney Channel on November 22, 2015 and began airing as a TV series on January more.
26 Sonic the Hedgehog (SatAM)

Love this show, but loathe the rabid fandom... I don't see what's so special about SatAM compared to other Sonic shows or even the games. There is more to the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise than this show, people.

27 Powerpuff Girls Z Powerpuff Girls Z
28 Mr Benn

As if by magic... the shopkeeper appeared

29 Jem

Another toy from the 80s that was made into a cartoon then decades later they made a live action movie, if they rebooted it the cartoon would probably be based on the movie, because the original was years ago.

30 Rubik, the Amazing Cube

You'd be like, have I gone back in time.
