Best Disney Channel Animated Series

The Top Ten
1 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 Falls, Oregon, while on summer vacation.

This amazing show has taught me many things. Not only does it make me laugh, or make me feel anxious at high points, this show always makes me think the unthinkable. The codes are always a great bonus part and the fabulous characters (like Mabel) will always make me laugh. If you have not watched this amazing animation, go and watch it. This fantastic show has made my childhood feel complete and I did not regret the choice I made to watch Gravity Falls. Thank the entire Gravity Falls crew for making my cartoon life AMAZING. GRAVITY FALLS IS JUST...INDESCRIBABLE. This Thanks for this exciting roller coaster ride. More thumbs up for Gravity Falls!

This show is already a legend since 2 years ago. The great Alex Hirsch has been one of the greatest animated creators I've known, and I love how he make unexpecting suprises popping out of our Television while watching this outstanding animated show. This show has its own package: Mystery, fantasy, horror, comedy... it has everything for a whole family to enjoy. This is one of the most successful animated show I ever watch and it made me enjoy being a kid again, it brings a lot of imagination in our minds that kept us alive and enjoy our former childhood memories. Well done Alex Hirsch...

2 Kim Possible Kim Possible is an American animated children's television series created by Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle for Disney Channel.

THIS is the show that made Gravity Falls and Phineas and Ferb possible. Even though Gravity Falls is a great show, I prefer Kim Possible because it can be action-packed while still being humorous, light-hearted, and quotable. Gravity Falls could be too serious at times, and the characters aren't as fun or memorable as the ones in Kim Possible. Ron Stoppable is more entertaining than all of the Gravity Falls characters combined, Rufus is adorable, and who doesn't love Dr. Drakken and Shego? They're great foils to each other! Plus, I think this show has a better animation style than Gravity Falls.

I love Kim Possible! I use to watch it all the time! I love the characters (especially Ron and Rufus! ) I loved the fourth season too! I thought the show got even better when Kim and Ron got together! I really miss that show! :')

Clever and big-hearted without taking itself too seriously, this show broke the cliches that often come with being a superhero, showing that even the coolest teenager can struggle with insecurity, crushes, and family.

3 Phineas and Ferb Phineas and Ferb is an American animated comedy-musical television series. Originally broadcast as a one-episode preview on August 17, 2007 and again previewed on September 28, 2007, the series officially premiered on February 1, 2008 and ended on June 12, 2015 on Disney Channel, and follows Phineas Flynn and his British stepbrother Ferb Fletcher on summer vacation.

Phineas and Ferb is one of Disney's most beloved animated shows, and rightfully so. The show managed to maintain a repetitive and relatively simple formula for 8 years without it going stale, which is amazing. P&F is produced by the same people who worked on some of the best Family Guy episodes (like the "Road-To" episodes in the early seasons), so the jokes, storylines, and musical numbers are top-notch. Phineas and Ferb may be a show for kids, but the characters are so diverse, well-fleshed out, and the show itself is so enjoyable and entertaining that you're inclined to forget.

I'm an adult and this show still makes me laugh hysterically.

"It all started on the day of my birth. Neither of my parents bothered to show up."

This show sucks. It's repetitive and has way too much episodes. I mean, the summer lasts only 2-3 months but this show has about 200 episodes and even episodes that are about winter...

The animation is not bad but compared to Gravity Falls's animation boring. Here is how I would describe the plot in 5 bullet points:

-Build something
-Candace tells her mom
-Perry fights Doofenschmirtz and escapes
-Suddenly the stuff they build is gone

Honestly, only kids under 12 should watch this. Above is a shame. Yes, a shame. Hope this finally gets canceled before I die because this ruined Disney Channel.

4 Star vs. the Forces of Evil "Star vs. the Forces of Evil" is an American animated television comedy produced by Disney Television Animation for Disney XD. It was created by Daron Nefcy and developed by Jordana Arkin and Dave Wasson. The series follows teenage magical princess from the dimension of Mewni Star Butterfly and her teenage human roommate and best friend from Earth Marco Diaz as they live their daily lives, go on adventures... read more

This is probably one of the most Underrated Disney Channel Shows because everyone thinks it's stupid and girly and TRY to flame but it's so great that nobody can roast this. Gravity Falls is so overrated because it's just so boring and while it's not the worst (Pickle and Peanut and Right Now Kapow is worse), it just always get so much praise when I don't think it's that great. This show needs more attention and love.

It's my personal no.2, losing to Gravity Falls (which is a MASTERPIECE). Star and Marco have a really great chemistry similar to Dipper and Mabel, and though I dislike the Pony Head and Glossaryk characters, this show is really good. I agree it seems girly, too bad it is so :( just give it a chance- it's a really nice hangover cure after Gravity Falls ends.

I thik this show is going to be carrying Disney because all of their episodes are so funny and can be watched for the family. Star vs. The Forces of Evil is going to be one of the best shows next from Gravity Falls and Wander Over Yonder.

5 DuckTales DuckTales is an American animated television series produced by Walt Disney Television Animation. It premiered on September 18, 1987 and ended on November 28, 1990 with a total of four seasons and 100 episodes.

I watch this show all the time. I have it on DVD. Maybe I'm being a little biased, as I grew up with this show, but come on, you know it's the best.

This show is a lot of fun. It's fun, original, and had an awesome theme song. My only problem was how girly and stereotypical Webby is.

Full of adventure, emotion and hunger of winning.

6 Recess Recess is an American animated television series created by Paul Germain and Joe Ansolabehere and produced by Walt Disney Television Animation, with animation done by Grimsaem, Plus One Animation, Sunwoo Animation, and Toon City.

YES! The best animated Disney Channel thing EVER! There's so much you can do! Horrible teachers, variety of bullies, weirdos and just plain unique kids, the ideas were great, and it inspired me to watch more Disney Channel!

Recess is the best show overrall but phineas and ferb is great and unique to but when I was 7 I enjoyed this show every saturday thts why this show overall is super unique and should number 1 no matter what.

So popular, Disney considered breaking it's own 65-episode rule just to bring it back

7 Lilo & Stitch: The Series Lilo & Stitch: The Series is an American animated television series produced by Walt Disney Television.

This show should be at least at number 3 because I admit number 1 and 2 are really good.
Also P&P sucks now it has gotten boring with the same plot over and over again but this does not, not every episode has a new experiment and they don't have the same plot over and over the only thing is recurring is finding a new experiment

This is not the best Disney's series but I have to agree that this series is very GOD! EXCELENT eries. I love Lilo the Most, she used to help Stich become a better "little Monster" everyday! Hope Disney Channel will play it again THUMP UP if you agree with me!

Overall, it's a cute show. Not as good as some others, but was fun, creative, and entertaining. If you like the movie, you should watch it.

8 American Dragon Jake Long

This show got everything- action, drama, comedy, and romance. American Dragon: Jake Long still makes me laugh to this day.

American Dragon is the best show ever, it beats all the other disney series, they MUST make a season 3

Jake is so sick American dragon is amazing need to put it back disney channel is so boring pleease put it back

9 Wander Over Yonder Wander Over Yonder is an American animated television series on Disney XD. Created by Craig McCracken, it follows Wander and his best friend and steed Sylvia. Adventurous and optimistic, Wander rides across the galaxy to help persons live freely, against the intentions of Lord Hater to rule the universe.

No way it should be number #7. It should at least be in the top 3. The show was created by Craig McCracken, the same creator of "The Powerpuff Girls" and "Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends" and as a matter of fact, he's one of my top 3 favorite show creators of all time. And of all of his creations, this is his best one yet.

When I first saw ads for this show I looked at it and thought it would be a super dumb show. However, it suprised me. I like the simple animation, diverse world and some of the characters. Sadly, I think it got a little sour when they put dominater in the plot, and now they stopped it. If they marketed it the right way then it show could have been a lot more popular. I want to make a T.V. hosw and this my inspiration

Wander over yonder is going to be excellent! It's awesome! Best show plot and characters Disney has made of all time! Love it! It's awesome! Can't wait for it to air out on Disney Channel! Reminds me of the old Disney Channel and old Cartoon Network shows and characters

10 Buzz Lightyear of Star Command Buzz Lightyear of Star Command is an American animated science fiction/adventure/comedy series produced by Walt Disney Television Animation.

Its My Favorite Show and it's the best like the Legend of Tarzan and ITs Way Better Than Barney

This Show Should be In First I ts My Favorite Disney Show of all Time It Has So Many Characters In it Like Buzz Booster XR and Nova Zurg and Warp

This Show is awesome and its way better than Barney I Hate him so Much

The Contenders
11 The Proud Family The Proud Family is an American animated sitcom that ran on Disney Channel from September 15, 2001 to August 19, 2005.

How in the world is this show not number one? It's funnier than most of the other shows they've been making lately. Kids these days just don't know good shows anymore. The only other show on here that I would approve of the top spot is Kim Possible, but that's not even first either.

This was a unique cartoon as it followed a black family rather than the typical white cartoon family. In fact, most of the characters in the show are black so that gave a refreshing take on the typical kid's cartoon. Not to mention this show is hilarious and heartwarming.

I think this should be in the top ten cause this show is so awesome, the minute I saw it I already loved this show

12 The Owl House The Owl House is an American animated fantasy television series created by Dana Terrace that premiered on Disney Channel on January 10, 2020. The series stars the voices of Sarah-Nicole Robles, Wendie Malick, Alex Hirsch, Tati Gabrielle, Issac Ryan Brown, Mae Whitman, Cissy Jones, Matthew Rhys, Zeno Robinson, and Fryda Wolff.

Definite one of the best shows lately.

13 Gargoyles Gargoyles is an American animated series produced by Walt Disney Television Animation and Buena Vista Television, and originally aired from October 24, 1994 to February 15, 1997. The series features a species of nocturnal creatures known as gargoyles that turn to stone during the day.

Probably the best series Disney ever made, one of the few to treat it's audience maturely. It also cleverly incorporated elements of Shakespearean dramas into it's already fantastic Modern Fantasy genre. Deserves to be in the top 10 at least.

One of my top Disney animated series. It was a bit darker in comparison to their usual stuff which younger me loved. Should be higher on the list in my opinion

14 Darkwing Duck Darkwing Duck is an American animated action-adventure comedy television series produced by Walt Disney Television Animation that first ran from 1991 to 1992 on both the syndicated programming block The Disney Afternoon and Saturday mornings on ABC.

"I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the shiver down your spine! I am... not in the top ten! What's going on here!? Do you know who I am? I'm DARKWING DUCK! Superhero extraordinaire! You mean to tell me that some clumsy barbarian is ahead of me? Does anyone even remember that bozo's name? This is an outrage! Oh, and Tarzan? The guy who swings on vines in his underpants!? SERIOUSLY!? "

Yeah, I just had a talk with Darkwing about his place on this list. Needless to say, he's not very happy...

An alternative to Duck Tales, Darkwing Duck does not fail in its purposes. Parodying the old crime fighting shows from back yonder. Also, I think it has a fine combination of humor for all ages.

A classic from my youth that inspired my imagination enough to lead me on a path as a published author.

15 House of Mouse

This show was my childhood I cannot believe its off the air! Ever since this was canceled Disney started to suck! It should be #1! I loved how they made new shorts pretty much the exact way Walt Disney would do it. It was funny of course! There is nothing wrong with it! PLEASE BRING IT BACK! Oh and also bring back The Proud Family and Kim Possible! No More Disney! Nobody even thinks Disney is funny! Thumbs up if you agree!

This was a great cartoon. We need more Mickey on Disney Channel. This show provided interesting shorts aloh with a plot going on in the House of Mouse along with cameos of various Disney characters. What's not to like?

A good series. It was like Kingdom hearts, but without keyblades. Good drawing quality, good characters, good episodes, it was like a dream came true seeing all disney characters in one zone, and like disneyland.

16 DuckTales (2017) DuckTales (2017) is an American animated television series that serves as a reboot of the original 1987 series. It features the adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his grandnephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie as they seek treasures and fight villains.

17 Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers

This show is always so much fun for me!

18 Aladdin

It's pretty awesome! My favorite character was genie, because he's so funny. My favorite villain was Mozenrath, now he was a great bad guy!

Okay I guess kind of boring though

19 Tangled: The Series

An amazing yet underrated show!

20 Goof Troop Goof Troop is an American animated comedy television series produced by Walt Disney Television Animation.
21 Dave the Barbarian Dave the Barbarian is an American animated television series created by Doug Langdale for Disney Channel.

:) Dave was a very hilarious cartoon, it was fun and thus it is a shame it doesn't have new seasons coming, as a result not a lotta people would remember the show

God, this cartoon had some of the most creative ideas of all time. I just love the episode where Uncle Oswald makes the heroes invisible.

Dave de barbarian is awesome, it doesn't bore me up to dis date

22 Big City Greens

Really fun! Love the characters

23 The Replacements The Replacements was an American action-fantasy-comedy animated television series for Disney Channel that ran originally from July 28, 2006 to March 30, 2009. Although the series originally aired episodes on Saturdays at 8:00pm EST, it was moved to Mondays at 5:00pm EST.

The series focuses on siblings Riley and Todd who were orphans until they found a Fleemco comic book and found an ad for... read more

I will be first to admit the first season left much to be desired but go back and watch season 2 and witness it's genius. Maliciously underrated in my opinion

24 TaleSpin TaleSpin is an American animated television series based in the fictional city of Cape Suzette, that first aired in 1990 as a preview on The Disney Channel and later that year as part of The Disney Afternoon, with characters adapted from Disney's 1967 animated feature The Jungle Book, which was theatrically rereleased in the summer before this show premiered in the fall.

This far down the list just discredits the entire list..

Great show, made up a big chunk of my childhood.

25 The Legend of Tarzan

Awesome! Love the Tarzan movie and love the series. It's very adventurous aesthetic funny! Best animated T.V. show Disney has made yet, but I they would have made episodes!

The most CRIMINALLY underrated show PERIOD!
