Top 10 Most Creative Nickelodeon Shows


The Top Ten

1 Avatar: The Last Airbender Avatar: The Last Airbender Avatar: The Last Airbender is an American animated television series that aired for three seasons on Nickelodeon from 2005 to 2008. 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.

Aside from Drake and Josh, this whole list was a joke before we added popular animated shows to it. I mean, how could you forget something as breathtakingly unique, innovative, and most importantly, creative as Avatar: The Last Airbender with its awesome premise of fighting by bending elements, anime-influenced art style, amazing characters, all with a cohesive and well-written plot that makes this show not only a Nickelodeon gem, but also a diamond in the rough in the animation industry? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Even drake and josh, as much as I love it, isn't that unique. It's your typical teenager high school comedy - Jackamalio

2 Drake & Josh Drake & Josh Drake & Josh is an American television sitcom created by Dan Schneider for Nickelodeon. The series follows the lives of two teenage boys with opposite personalities, Drake Parker and Josh Nichols, who become stepbrothers.

I have a question: Not that I hate Drake & Josh, but does the OP of this list even know what "creative" means? Creative technically means to be unique. Creativity is different from quality, although it does correlate with the latter. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I have loved Drake and Josh since I was little but some shows now are garbage like Bella and the Bulldogs. Bella and the Bulldogs is non realistic.

Yes because the reason people watched Drake and Josh was for realism right? - Jackamalio

Used to watch this when I was a kid... It's still seems so iconic - Ananya

Should be number 1. - Selfiefansman
