Greatest Nick Jr. Shows

The Top Ten

1 Blue's Clues Blue's Clues is an American children's television series that premiered on Nickelodeon in 1996. Producers Angela Santomero, Todd Kessler, and Traci Paige Johnson combined concepts from child development and early-childhood education with innovative animation and production techniques that helped their ...read more.

I wish this show was still airing :( Why is Dora still airing? It's stupid!

Dora is getting cancelled the actor was an immigrant:) best day ever

the show was really good but the new verision with the new guy is dumb

this is the best show on nick jr. it taught kids good stuff. I autully think that joe is better then steve. SCREW THE SPIN OFF.

This show brings back so many memories of when I was little!

2 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.

I love the Backyardigans, it is better than blues clues and should be in number one place. It would have been nice if the Backyardigans was still airing, but I still love this show all the same.
My top 5 backyardigan characters:
5. Tasha - Even though that I believe that Tasha is the worst out of the five, I still love her. She is rational and headstrong but she can be bossy and stubborn.
4. Uniqua - I really, really like Uniqua, but yes, she can be reckless. She can also be stubborn as well as her best friend, Tasha.
3. Tyrone - I love Tyrone. He is a really, really good character, he is laid-back and cool-headed and he is especially very, very funny. I also love the episode "It's Great to Be a Ghost" I love his personality, its very, very funny. Overall, Tyrone is a great character.
2. Pablo - Pablo is the most popular character, without a doubt and I have to agree that he is one of the best characters. He is an energetic and funny penguin that we can't get enough of. ...more

this show was super entertaning and I watched it all the time!

My all time favorite show and the show I want rebooted. Tasha may be a bossy brat, but she is not slave holder bossy. She is just bossy on some occasions, but she is actually nice. She's even less bossy than D.W. Read.

The show may not be as edgy like many Nickelodeon cartoons, but some episodes are like when they were skateboarding, but with northern Brazilian music called forro, not the same music from the Danny Phantom theme song.

They also didn't shove morals down your throat and became a repulsive mess like say, Caillou.

The show is very imaginative and the adventures are creative like tango may be for only expensive ballrooms from Argentina not secret agents breaking in museums to return a bone, but I found out that the composer for Mission Impossible is from Argentina like tango.

Good news. It is being rebooted by The Shadow Reader but they are older now.

Uniqua and her friends, Pablo the Penguin, Tyrone the Moose, Tasha the Hippopotamus, and Austin the Kangaroo

3 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.

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!

Raccoon cartoon- but on Charlie and Lola they mention the parents.

Sorry but I do not agree that max and ruby is a bad show people that do not agree with me are the dumbest people to ever set foot on earth on the other hand me and my sister are the smartest people in the world

4 Wow Wow Wubbzy

This show is the best I don't know why it stopped airing I watched it when I was little and if it was still sting I’d still watch it now as a ten year old

Yes I had to vote this. I remember being obsessed with this show this is the only thing I would watch

Why is Dora still airing and this isn't? I watched this until I was 9! But now I only listen the songs! Because they make good songs unlike Peppa pig and dora

This and other shows on Nick Jr from 2002-2010 were my childhood. Nick Jr is ruined now. It doesn't even have any good shows.
Make shows like this!

5 LazyTown LazyTown is an English-language Icelandic children's educational musical action comedy program made by an international crew and performed by a cast from Iceland, the United States and the United Kingdom.

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 voted for Backyardigans on a different device, but I can't help but vote for LazyTown despite the fact that I've never seen an episode of it at all!

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.

6 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 ...read 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

Ha ha ha. It's funny how people like this. I thought the fans were 5 year olds. Its about a dumb robot sounding kid named Ryder who has dumb talking dogs. And the merchandise is like Thomas the train was when I was a kid. I was at a lids in Little Rock yesterday and I found a few PAW PATROL HATS! Then there is a million toys on Amazon, board games when the first season was airing, and almost EVERY kid I see at random places have a paw patrol shirt. What's next? A paw patrol THEME PARK?! Well maybe by 2020. It's what I hate about Nick Jr right when a show comes on and it could be cheap but it could have a theme park in the middle of the first season. They even did this with blues clues. You think I'm joking? Than watch some commercials from blues clues.

The pups are cute and it's a cool show, but disney's Puppy Dog Pals wins the title of the best show in the world. Paw Patrol used to be perfect, but the toys got bad. The Sea Patrol vehicle figures don't even have moving legs! The toys don't have all the right details and colors. Also, the paint chips so easily. The action pack pups were cool, but now the backpacks are clip-ons!
The plush pups sometimes have dorky faces, but sometimes they are cute. The toys are actually getting pricer. The My Size Lookout Tower's elevator is too small to fit all the pups. The pups don't flip into their cars, and it's hard to put together. The show is bad now too. They stole the other pup's jobs! Mission Paw is like spy Chase. Air Pups Is Skye. Sea Patrol is Zuma and Ultimate Rescue is Marshall. The adults have no brains and where are Ryder's parents? But Zuma is cute. Zuma is the best pup, but only Chase and Marshall get the fame. Paw Patrol has some cons, but Zuma makes it a great show. He's ...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.

7 Oswald Oswald is a safety-conscious but fun-loving octopus who lives in an apartment complex in Big City with his dog, Weenie. His neighborhood is peopled with colorful characters like his pal, Henry the Penguin, Madame Butterfly, who runs the Big Diner, and her daughter, Catrina Caterpillar. Oswald likes ...read more.

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.

Who made this show? A HIPPIE? Everything is so drugged up. It looks like when you accidentally take the other person's pills. And you act like it is hilarious.

8 Little Bear

Absolutely LOVED this show! It had excellent and charming characters, the music set the episodes, scenes and characters perfectly. The episodes had excellent plots and imagination to them. Why they don't do re-runs anymore is beyond me. "Little Bear" was one of the creams-of-the-crop. No matter how old I get, I'll never stop loving this show.

HA HA this is above Dora the Explorer now!

This shows alright
Guess what
Little Bears actor is Bridgette from the total drama series

They should make a little bear, Franklin,Wonder pets crossover episode. Despite that it’s canceled.

9 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.

This show was so charming! Animation wasn't too bad and the characters were pretty good. Alice the Great was especially a favorite character of mine because she truly reminds me of my own maternal great-grandmother.

Bill Cosby, will kill Cailou and his parents, friends, family, and neighborhood

this show tought kids that everything can be solved with imaginaition. I think that caiyou is a rip off. SCREW YOU CAIYOU.

I just realized Little Bill is supposed to be a younger Bill Cosby.
RIP childhood.

10 Franklin

Just like the books themselves, Franklin the TV series was one of the best! I do admit though, that I liked the older episodes much better, before Harriet came along (no offense.) But I did see the "Back to School With Franklin" special on the internet and thought that it was great. I also watched the Christmas one (the one when they go to Grandma and Grandpa's house to spend the holidays). That was pretty good too. I loved the music and the characters were well developed.

Franklin brings joy to people.

Franklin is weird. In both of them.

The most kindest turtle around

The Contenders

11 Wonder Pets Wonder Pets! is an American animated children's television series. It debuted March 3, 2006, on the Nick Jr. block of the Nickelodeon cable television network and Noggin (now Nick Jr.) on December 27, 2006.

*phone rings* Mom: can you get that? Me: the phone is ringing,
the phone is ringing!

Each time the phone would ring in class someone would sing "The phone, the phone is ringing."

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..

At least this is better the Team Umizoomi.

12 Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer (2000 - 2019) is an American preschool 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.

this show is good. it was autully my faverite shows on nick jr. the stupid people who hate this show can EAT MY SHORTS.

13 The Upside Down Show The Upside Down Show is an Australian children's television show originally aired on Noggin, Nick Jr. Australia, ABC, Seven Network, Nine Network and Network Ten.

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.

This was a really unique show but Prick Jr got rid of it for no coherent reason.

14 Pocoyo

The only female character (Careless if that sleeping bird in the tree is a girl) is the elephant that loves pink and ballet and ribbons and dolls and stuff so yeah...

This show is the worst show ever! I dislike this show

I loved this show. My son loves it also.

Hate it characters don't speak

15 Yo Gabba Gabba Yo Gabba Gabba! is an American live action/puppet children's television show starring five costumed toys-come-to-life and their friend DJ Lance Rock.

this show is kinda cool. but now I think the show is kinda weird.

Yo gabba gabba had a great impact on my life. It tough me that I could do anything with imagination

I love this show why are people saying that it sucks

My favorite show! Is it just me or are these characters creepy

16 Fresh Beat Band

I remember with my cousin memories I love it top 1# now also I like the new and old ones thank you everyone who made it LOVE IT The fresh beat band and the fresh beat band of spies ah

The new Marina was so hot! And the songs were pretty good too! I remember three of them completely!

Who has got the Freshest beat? The Fresh Beats, of course!

Twist is the best character. Try to change my mind.

17 Go Diego Go Go, Diego, Go! is an American animated educational interactive children's television program that originally aired on the Nickelodeon children's cable network in the United States and produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studio .

Tapirs are my 1 favorite animal and I am so glad that they are in this show

I used to love this show as a kid, and I still do. Baby Jaguar is so dang cute

I love this show because it has animals and dinosaurs

This show sucks but it's better than Dora the Idiot. There was one episode where there was an iguana that age strawberry seeds, and crapped in a garden so it could "grow" into fruit. How can iguana crap grow?! Way to go Nick Jr. Thanks for ruining he show.

First up, the stuff in the iguana's "business" has nutrients and other good stuff inside there to fertilize the plant and give it nutrients.

18 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 ...read more.

Funny and wonderful show! Spud definitely brought the whole thing to life with his silly antics and his constant tendency to get into trouble.

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

You meant the original whoever put the reboot on there and I like Dizzy and Lofty

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

I'll never forget this show, especially when it started off with those shorts that would air in between shows on the Nick Jr. block. Had funny moments and nice music to it.

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

20 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.

I can tell this is better than peppa pig

This show had much more effort and thought put into it than Peppa pig. Ben and holly makes Peppa look like a pile of pure crap.

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

21 Hey Duggee

This show was quite charming! The animation was cute and was done really well in the no-line style, and the voice acting was top notch quality.

I hate you nick jr

This was my fab T.V. show but one day

22 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.

Yeah it's because people have an issue where they can't outgrow. What's next they are going to miss pacifiers because they had it as a kid?

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

This show rocks! Dora Bubble Guppies Team Umizoomi Peppa Pig Paw Patrol Fresh beat band Lalaloopsy and Wallykazam need to go. Blues Clues Mac & Ruby Little Bear Backyardigans Little Bill This show Oobi Lazytown Maggie and the Ferocious beast etc. need to come back

I agree with all except Dora, Bubble Guppies, Team Umizoomi and the Fresh Beat Band I love those shows.

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

23 Thomas And Friends Thomas & Friends is a British children's television series. In the United Kingdom, it had its first broadcast on the ITV network in Great Britain in 1984.

Thomas the Tank Engine was definitely a thing for me as a child. Ringo Starr really brought everything to life with his voice-over narration and the voicing of the characters themselves. I also remember when "Shining Time Station" aired on Nick Jr. and that show was pretty good too. It's a shame that it got ruined with the CGI and the characters actually moved their mouths when they talked. It should've just been left as it once was.

This show is on Nick Jr, and this show is the best show ever along with Ready Jet Go, so it should be number one because it's really well made.

Everyone, help us move this to the top five, it doesn't deserve to be any further back than that! Jared

I remember this show it was good show

24 Gullah Gullah Island

Introducing: The Ugly Brother of Yo Gabba Gabba

Wasn't this show taped at Nickelodeon studios at universal studios Orlando Florida?

Wasn't this show filmed at Nickelodeon studios at universal studios Florida?

What? I hate this show! Get it off the list!

25 Olivia

I like this show better than dumb old Peppa Pig.

She's not bad. She's not as bad as Peppa Pig.

This show sucks olivia is overrated and needs to die olivia sucks this show needs to get taken off the list because olivia sucks ultra hard

Olivia is way better than Peppa Pig.!
