2 The Backyardigans The Backyardigans The Backyardigans is a Canadian–American CGI-animated musical TV series created by Janice Burgess, It is a co-production of animation studio Nelvana and Nickelodeon Animation Studios.

This show was my favorite show to watch on nick jr. And it still is! This show was part of my childhood and frankly, I'm so happy it was!

Every young child that I have come in contact with loves the Backyardigans. I am so disappointed that Nick Jr. Is not showing it anymore. Please bring it back!

I can't even begin to explain the worth of this show. There are so many great songs, plotlines, sayings, and moments. The character development is beyond incredible. I can see a little of myself in all of the character. It certainly is a great show; don't ya think?

This show is not only great, but it also teaches children to go outside and use your imagination. Other then sitting on their couch and playing on their mothers phone.

3 LazyTown

LazyTown was a fun show. It encouraged exercise and healthy living while still being fun and enjoyable. Also Robbie Rotten is the star of the show. I always love when he's on screen.

I wonder why it's called lazy town when everyone is always active, cute concept and I like what their trying to teach know the in this show, but it's weird

I actually loved Lazytown but over time it kinda got old pretty fast because every plot of it was to stop Robbie Rotten which eventually caught up to itself.

I used to like this, but this is so WEIRD and CREEPY!

4 Max & Ruby

Nope, I'm sorry, but this shouldn't be on this list. The animation is cheap and lazy. The theme song is just saying the title of the show over and over again. The concept is dead on arrival. The writing is formulaic and atrocious at that. The dialogue is either stupid, redundant, or all of the above. Ruby's voice actress is the worst I've ever heard. The sound effects are over-the-top and cartoony and don't fit the show's tone. It's inconsistent with the era it takes place in. It's clearly set in 1950s North America, but one episode shows a kid with an MP3 player. The music is decent, but it's way overused. It's a bad show. If you disagree, you probably follow the "It's Just for kids" mentality, which I refuse to take seriously. Either that or you're nostalgia-blind. Just watch a few episodes and those nostalgia goggles will quickly fade to reveal the utter abomination that this show is.

This and Blues Clues bring back so many memories. These are both awesome shows. - TopTenJackson

Don't bother putting this on the list. Ruby needs to get kicked by a horse. She is constantly bossy to her little brother Max and where the heck are their parents? Who pays and keeps eye on them when the sneak out of their house? SOMEONE EXPLAIN!

I personally use to love ❤️ max and ruby it was very funny and a great show for kids.

6 Little Bill Little Bill Little Bill is an American animated children's television series produced for Nick Jr. The stories are based on Bill Cosby's Little Bill book series, set in Philadelphia, and feature Bill Jr.

Better than Caillou because I don't see him whine nearly as much.

This show is pretty good. It teaches kids about their imagination and learn about school. I remember watching this show a lot. The voice acting is pretty good as well. It's actually not that annoying.

Caillou, but actually good. No, Little Bill was originally a book that came out before Caillou and Caillou is the rip-off. Caillou had a grating voice, Bill had a cute one. The only problem is that it was made by a rapist. - 445956

7 Oswald Oswald

I remember watching Oswald when I was a kid I used to love this show but for some reason it only lasted for like 2 or 3 seasons. Now they don't even show reruns of it on nick jr in fact the last time I've seen an episode of it was 5 or 6 years ago!

This is not half bad.

This was a great show. Too bad it lasted only two seasons. - Connor360

9 PAW Patrol PAW Patrol PAW Patrol is an Canadian animated television series created by Keith Chapman. It is produced by Spin Master Entertainment with animation provided by Guru Studio. In Canada, the series is primarily broadcast on TVOKids, which first ran previews of the show in August 2013. The series first aired on Nickelodeon more.

Why isn't this Number #1? This show on Nick Jr is great for many reasons, but the most important one being that the characters don't "talk" to you or ask you questions like Dora or Blaze and the Monster Machines. Those shows are annoying! I'm 13 years old and I don't watch Paw Patrol that much but my neighbors little brother likes it and I have seen it before and it is very cute and adorable! I love it! Sometimes me and my brother laugh and make fun of how ignorant and weird some of the characters are like Marshall and Mayor Goodway! There are actually funny parts in this show like for example in the episode when Carlos' bird is lost they are at the old ruins where Mateo is up on top of it and Marshall says "too bad no one has a ladder" and Marshall does have a ladder so Ryder, Carlos, and the pups look really weirdly at him and there is long silence that made me crack up also when the pups are the elevator that is always funny when someone cracks a joke. Sometimes they are cheesy but ...more

Oh my goodness! I love this show! It's so much better than any of these shows! This has to be #1!

Oh you're so kidding. This show is actually ugly, stupid, dumb, and overrated. It's the worst Nick Jr show ever made. It will never be good.

What is PAW PATROL doing here? I vote it 1000th ALL THE WAY AT THE BOTTOM! Everything is super stupid. Especially the sayings! It should be more like:

"PAW PATROL IS NOT EVER ON THE ROLL" and Dora sucks too. Die, Crap Patrol Die! Dora the explodes! They are both not educational and horrible shows that cause chaos! Is Maggie And The Ferocious Beast lower than this? This and Maggie should switch places! WORST! CRAP! EVER!

Franklin brings joy to people.

The Contenders

11 Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer (2000 - 2015) is an American educational animated TV series created by Chris Gifford, Valerie Walsh, and Eric Weiner in which Dora goes on adventures with her friend, a monkey named Boots.

Why is this on the list? Dora is a stupid explorer. I would vote her 000. If there was a contest of who has the most likes, dora would have 0 points.

I liked the old Dora, but know it stupid level over 90000.

Old plots: saving animals, buying stuff she wants, mostly normal stuff for a kids cartoon
New plots: Dora saves her kitten from a talking starry owl in story land, Dora saves a kingdom from a mean king because he doesn't know how to read and gets a magic wand and fairy wings,

See what I mean? It's getting worse by the episodes.

Oh my god I love this show! How is this not number one?!

No just kidding. This show is ugly, stupid, and annoying. This show should stop airing.

Way Better Then Blues Clues Because It Is More Animnated And Longer Because Dora Teaches Spanish When Blues Clues Does Not Because I See Too Much People Liking Blues Clues They Need To Start Hating Blues Clues And Like Dora I’m Glad I Got Rid Of My Blues Clues VHS And DVDs And Blues Clues Characters Like To Have Sex At Night Eat Poop And Drink Pee So All Stores Need To Bring Back all The dora Toys And DVDs And Bedroom Stuff And Get Rid Of The Stupid Paw Patrol Stuff Because Dora Is The Real Poplar Nick Jr Show Not Paw Patrol

12 Wonder Pets Wonder Pets Wonder Pets! is an American animated children's television series. It debuted March 3, 2006, on the Nick Jr.

You're hating this show because it's a kids show... The animals can talk because it's a kids show and really you shouldn't be watching it because you're way too old to be judging kids shows like that.. Haters.. - SheepBuggy

Wow, the top tens are full of shows I watched when I was 3-8. I still watch some of them with my little sister, besides PAW Patrol. (Read my comment; it says something about March 2015.)

At least this is better the Team Umizoomi. - Connor360

Tuck is a dumb name for a turtle - Ihateschool

13 The Upside Down Show

This show, along with Lazy Town and Maggie and the Ferocious Best should be in the top ten! Who cares about Dora and Diego?! Those shows just got worse as they went on. I actually remember ENJOYING certain shoes as a little kid, and it wasn't Dora. The Upside Down Show rocks, and I still like it 10 years later! Don't judge me, it was a part of my childhood!

Nick jr is just asking for people to stop watching cause' they're deleting good shows and adding bad ones, and the few that used to be good they're making bad

ITS AWESOME! They are so funny! My favorite episode is when they go to the pet shop! Its ironic how David has a pet chair! I would prefer the bunny.

Have to switch places with Backyardigans

14 Maggie and the Ferocious Beast Maggie and the Ferocious Beast Maggie and the Ferocious Beast is a Canadian animated TV series created by Michael and Betty Paraskevas.

This and The Backyardigans show that Canada really can produce great shows. Screw Umizoomi and whatever brainwashing bull crap they put on Nick. Jr now, Maggie and the Ferocious Beast, Blue's Clues, Miffy and Friends, Backyardigans, Little Bear, Oswald, Oobi, and Little Bill should be the only shows that Nick. Jr should air everywhere! Not just the U.S. and just maybe we can share our childhood memories with the ones we love. Late 90's to Early 2000's were the best years for Nick. Jr.

This and Dora need to switch places.

This show gave me nightmares when I was little, IF YOUR UNDER THE AGE OF 5 DON'T WATCH THIS

I loved this show when I was little.

15 Jack's Big Music Show

I have read this and it seems like that everybody thinks the old shows are better than the new ones. Also, everybody agrees that Dora stinks. I have to agree.

I loved this show when I was 2. I wonder why it got canceled. Bring it back please. - EpicJake

This and Dora should switch places when this is at the bottom.

EpicJake how old are you?

16 Bob the Builder Bob the Builder Bob the Builder is a British children's animated television show created by Keith Chapman. In the original series, Bob appears in a stop motion animated programme as a building contractor, specialising in masonry, along with his colleague Wendy, various neighbours and friends, and their gang of anthropomorphised more.

I bet you don't remember the show Dig and Dug and Daisy. Possibly the original Bob the Builder. It first aired in 1994 on Channel 4.

The new Bob the Builder sucks. Everything and everyone is different

It was better on Nick Jr. PBS made it worse.

17 Ben And Holly's Little Kingdom

Peppa Pig was made first, and Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom was made second and Ben and Holly is WAY WAY better than Peppa Pig, Peppa Pig sucks.

Peppa Pig is a rip-off and ben and holly's little kingdom is so much better - SheepBuggy

This show should at least be towards the top ten. I love that this show teaches kids something different each episode. The actors/actresses on there are really good singers and have a sense of humor. When I first saw this show (I was about 9 or 10), I showed my little brothers and they LOVED it!

I love this show my dad hates it but I'm 12 and I think it's a good kids show the humors good it teaches good lessons and the songs are catchy

Why is this 15th? It should be in the top ten, if not in the top 5. I rate it 1000000/10!

This show is pretty good. Characters are likable! Songs are catchy! Wish my parents would enjoy it as much as I do...
