Avatar: The Last Airbender is set in an Asiatic-like world in which some people are able to manipulate the classical elements by use of psychokinetic variants of Chinese more.

This show is incredible. It was very seriously made (meaning the creators put a lot of effort into it) and every episode leaves you wanting more. It is emotional, funny, pleasing and as a child, you really want to be a bender. It has very nice effect on children and their imaginations

The art style is amazing, the characters are complex, which is what I love, and the plot is AWESOME! Zuko is my favorite.

This is my favorite show of all time! I love it! The Asian culture and martial arts with bending is awesome!

A great show for any age, everything about it is fantastic.

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.

Regular for one reason is because of the awesome songs. plus it pretty funny. maybe it's a waste of time but it is the most funny and sensible show on Cartoon Network

It's anything BUT! (See, that's when the word 'regular' comes in)

With rigby pops and mordicai as the big three this show is awesome this show made my childhood dream to meet JG Quintell

Nice animation and great story line, the characters are well-thought out and lovable. That's hard to find these days. Hopefully, it won't be a flop and only air for a couple episodes like most new cartoons.

One of the most clever, intriguing and loveable shows ever! The characters are great, the story arc is impressive, and the animation is top notch! The show is amazing and deserves to be in the top ten.

It is too amazing for words.

I like this show so I bet that's why its on this list

Best. Show. Ever. How on earth is it not first?! I first discovered DP when I was seven and still watch it now I'm almost fifteen. It wasn't like all the other corny American superhero shows; it was unique, funny, action-packed and had an amazing plot and a colossal cast of zany characters! I used to visit my friends and sister just so I could watch it because I didn't have foxtel, and I managed to never miss an episode He was and always will be my favourite cartoon character of all time - our ghostly crusader fights on!

Unique, emotional, and clever. This show appeals to people of all ages, with great plot and character development, as well as an intriguing take on the afterlife. It's action-packed and loads of fun!

Me and my sister watched it when we were younger and we still watch it now even our mom likes DP.

I think Danny Phantom is the best show Nickelodeon has ever had

Greatest cartoon ever. Very funny, had lots of good storylines and great action. Needed another season to close things up about Terra though - jpyke999

Best show on Cartoon Network in those good days! Better action, funny quotes and better storylines through the series! Plus, the movie of Teen Titans is great!

Way better than this Teen Titans Go crap, it has good story line and character a that balance each other, but they needed more seasons.

Can these Teen Titans kill the Teen Titans Go! ones? The latter are like villains!

I wouldn't say it was the best, but its good. The animation and art style is not as good as Steven Universe, but I like it. It is very childish at times, and quite goofy in some episodes, but that's what I like about it.
