Top 10 Most Creative Nickelodeon Shows

The Top Ten

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 (Drake Bell) and Josh Nichols (Josh Peck), who become stepbrothers. Both actors previously appeared in The Amanda Show along more.

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.

Drake & Josh is not creative... sure it's funny but it's no different than your average sitcom with laugh tracks. Avatar is a lot more worthy of first place.

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?

Drake & Josh is the only show that deserves the #1-9 place compared to other sitcoms

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?

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

I could leave a paragraph explaining how creative this show is, but I'll let it speak for itself.

Best T.V. show ever!

This made a whole world that’s amazing and does not deserve such a crappy movie adaptation.

This show is different from most cartoons. Most of the characters are highly developed and it proves that a can be a cartoon can be realistic. I love this show. Make it number 2 on the list.

How is This Below Bella and The Bulldogs? - kcianciulli

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.

PFFT! WHAT?! All these generic live-action sitcoms are considered creative? Um, what about creative animated series from Nickelodeon like SpongeBob SquarePants or Avatar: The Last Airbender? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Username says "SpongeBob Sucks" says SpongeBob SquarePants is a creative show. Really?
