Greatest Nick Jr. Shows

The Top Ten

1 Blue's Clues 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 more.

Blue's Clues is one of the best shows of my childhood! It's sad that it stopped airing on Nick Jr. I really loved it a lot & it even teaches lessons properly rather than Dora the Notorious Explorer!

Childhood but I prefer paw patrol more

This was a good show, I used to love this show when I was little to probably about age 5 or 6 maybe 7

I love this show, though I miss Steve...

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 like, my childhood! It was so funny!

This is probably the greatest Nick Jr. Show of all time. Much better than the current junk Nick Jr. shows like Paw Patrol, Shimmer & Shine and Sunny Day

The best show ever

Way better than Blue's Clues! I owned a soundtrack!

3 Max & Ruby

Awesome! I loved this show and blues clues

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.

I love this show when I was little but the one thing I hate is that Ruby is bossy to Max. In the Halloween episode Ruby try to make Max dress up as a prince when Max want to dress up as a vampire for Halloween

4 Wow Wow Wubbzy

Literally the best

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!

This is the #1 worst show ever, I hate it with a burning passion. Good that it was cancelled in 2010, now die wubbzy

I remember watching this all the time when I was 3 and 4. It taught me good lessons too! I mean, it also had good animation, great voice acting, and good moral lessons! If I could watch one show from when I was little, I would choose this. My favorite character was Walden.

5 LazyTown 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.

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!

This was the best.

We are number 1,we are number 1. it should be number 1.

Is the number one

6 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.

Paw Patrol has great animation

More like the worst show ever. Take it off this list. - Starlightglimmer15

Actually, no.
It's one of the worst. Even Peppa Pig and Dora beats this. This should be last

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

7 Oswald Oswald

Brings back my childhood memories. I loved this show when I was younger. - IceFoxPlayz

The last time ( that I remember ) I saw this show air on T.V. was an episode about firefighters I think. - Qryzx

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. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

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!

We need to vote for this classic.

9 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.

I just realized Little Bill is supposed to be a younger Bill Cosby.
RIP childhood. - TeamRocket747

Little Bill has got a life sentence in a detention centre. (Life sentence because he is always going to be a little kid)

Nope screw this show

My childhood. Right here.

Each time the phone would ring in class someone would sing "The phone, the phone is ringing." - TeamRocket747


Literally everything on this list is my childhood...

Really nice little episodes.
The only thing I'm not so certain about is the opening phrase.
"When we work together, we've got the right stuff" For some reason, that sounds wrong nowadays for me Overall a good show. - Qryzx

12 Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer (2000 - 2014) 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.

I love this! The haters can kiss my ass because this show rocks!

Should be at number 1 - myusernameisthis

The best nick jr show ever. Also how is paw paw patrol in the top 10? That crap should be in 1000 place. Dora is way better than all the other nick jr and nick shows combined.

Should be number 1 or at least in the top 3. - Starlightglimmer15

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

Best show on nick jr

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


This is obviously a joke. Why do you like puppets running around. In one episode a character bit another character. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

18 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.

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

This Bob the builder gave me cancer. The characters are ugly

Bob the stupid. Can we fix it? Bob the stupid. NO WE can't! - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

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.

20 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? - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

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.

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

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. - IceFoxPlayz

Makes no sense but some jokes are funny. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

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.

22 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.

More childhood memories - IceFoxPlayz

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

23 The Upside Down Show 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 was a really unique show but Prick Jr got rid of it for no coherent reason. - PiscesCringe

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!

This show is weird. It is about 2 autistic people trying to fix stuff. Can't believe I liked it when I was 5. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

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

I like Gordon

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. - Eraser

The show is now on Nick Jr. - ethan2226

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

"Be good to bugs! "

Even though it gets whiny at times (not as much as Caillou though) and the last episode went excessively over-the-top, I have to say, this is a good show! - PiscesCringe

28 Team Umizoomi Team Umizoomi Team Umizoomi is an American computer-animated musical children's television series with an emphasis on preschool mathematical concepts, such as counting, sequences, shapes, patterns, measurements, and comparisons.

This show is awesome unllike Dora the Explorer. - andrewteel

I love you team umizoomi cause you love to play around with your fans and the pj masks

Well,pretty good. I like math - Villainnumberone

This title should have been called Math Midgets. It's better than Dora, but they don't solve in REAL emergencies. The ice cream man arriving late is not an emergency. Also, a town DOES NOT HAVE JUST ONE MILK FARMER; they have lots of farmers and substitutes. Also, why does it look like that midget umicar is the fastest thing alive when in reality it can only go 5-20 mph and STILL beat a dump truck which goes 80 mph, and a sports car which goes 120 mph, AND A MOTORCYCLE GOING 150 mph. Last, what good are math superpowers if they rely on PEOPLE'S HELP to properly use them.

32 Peppa Pig Peppa Pig

Why is this show here! I'd rather play Action 52 than watch this crap!

The animation was obviously done in Microsoft Paint, and it looks like a preschooler drew it! The voice acting sucks, and Peppa's voice sounds like she has a sore throat. All George says is "Dinosaur" which makes him annoying, and makes him even MORE annoying when he cries over the dumbest things. All the characters call Daddy Pig fat, which just teaches kids to mock fat people. Mommy pig always criticizes Daddy, but I'm assuming that it's just inferring that some wives are whiny.

This show is given a 0.8 out of 10.


I guess this show was okay for 4 and under due to the content.
But why are a bit of the outline for peppa's ears going into her head? Or literally any lines that collide with each other on her head on general? - Qryzx

Peppa pig is great for younger kids it gives you life lessons and peppa is really funny and fun to watch I think peppa pig should be number 1 it is amazing for my little kids and they love the theme song is super catchy my kids absolutely love it

This show is OK and was the last show (other than Ben and Holly) on this channel that is actually bearable. - PiscesCringe
