The Top Ten

1 Sweet Victory (Band Geeks) - SpongeBob Squarepants Sweet Victory (Band Geeks) - SpongeBob Squarepants

In my opinion the greatest SpongeBob moment of all time in the final act of the episode after Squidward has given up on the band being able to perform at the bubble bowl as Squilliam shows up just to watch Sqidward fail when SpongeBob and the other band members show up to perform as Squidward fears another failure but to his and Squilliam's surprise SpongeBob and the band put on one hell of a show performing "Sweet Victory" as Squilliam passes out from seeing Squidward actually succeeding as Squidward basks in victory as Squidward jumps in the air as the episode ends. - egnomac

Best episode and NHL show ever. - codgtamk34

And it's sweet, sweet, sweet victory, yeah. - TheAwesomeBowser

2 The Ending (The Luck of the Fryrish) - Futurama The Ending (The Luck of the Fryrish) - Futurama

Another Futurama moment that made me tear up. It really showed Yancy missed Fry so much. - codgtamk34

Had a tough choice between this and Seymour but I ultimately went with the ending to The Luck of the Fryish, throughout the episode Fry believes that his brother Yancy who he never got along with stole his name and his dream along with his lucky clover as he, Leela and Bender go to rob Yancy's grave only to find out that the Philip J Fry he believed to be Yancy is actually his nephew who Yancy named after Fry in his memory as we get a flashback of Yancy naming his son after his brother who despite their strained relationship really missed him when he left, after retrieving the clover Fry decides to leave it on his nephew's grave as the song "Don't You Forget (About Me)" plays in the background as the episode ends. - egnomac

Both this episode and Seymour brought me to tears. For the episode Seymour, it was because Fry learned about how long his dog had lived, and decided to let him go, never knowing just how long Seymour had waited for him to return. - PandaMan

3 Ed Yells at Sarah (Little Ed Blue) - Ed, Edd N, Eddy Ed Yells at Sarah (Little Ed Blue) - Ed, Edd N, Eddy

After all the years of Sarah treating Ed like crap it was really satisfying seeing Ed finally tell her off, after Ed ends up in a foul mood and tosses everyone out of his garage Sarah yells at him telling him he can't kick her out as she lives here too and Ed goes off on her and screams "SO MOVE! " which puts her in her place as she slowly backs away. - egnomac

4 Luna and Sam Hug (Racing Hearts) - The Loud House Luna and Sam Hug (Racing Hearts) - The Loud House

I know a lot of people are gonna disagree with this moment but it's my list and I'll put whatever moment I want, this was a very memorable and heartwarming moment after spending nearly the whole episode realizing they have almost nothing in common and want to break up their relationship over it, but Sam and Luna do end up reconciling in the end after they both botch making an apple pie and decide that even though they have nothing in common they still want to make it work and hopefully discover new things they might like as they embrace in a hug as Lori and Leni watch on giving Luna the thumbs up. - egnomac

One of my favorite moments of the show. - Loudhouserules

I... am... inevitable! *Snap* - TheAwesomeBowser

Really heartwarming especially with both Lori and Leni being their support Luna. - Loudhouserules

5 Marge Chooses to Stay with Homer (Life on The Fast Lane) - The Simpsons Marge Chooses to Stay with Homer (Life on The Fast Lane) - The Simpsons

My opinion the best Simpsons moment of all time, in a scene parodying the ending to An Officer and a Gentleman after being torn between satisfying with Homer and going with Jock Marge shows up at the power plant to surprise Homer who is delighted that she came to see him as he carries her off as everyone cheers him on with one of them saying what should he tell the boss as Homer says "Tell him I'm going to the back seat of my car with the woman I love, and I won't be back for 10 minutes" as everyone continues cheering as Homer carrying Marge walks off into the sunset as the episode ends. - egnomac

6 Did You Say Chocolate - (Chocolate with Nuts) - Spongebob Squarepants

Yes sir, with or without nuts? - codgtamk34

"Did you say chocolate, chocolate, CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE! ". - egnomac

7 Come Crawl with Me (The Lounge Singer) - Rocko's Modern Life
8 "Lincoln Loud The Best Dang Brother Anywhere Around" (Yes Man) - The Loud House

One of the best endings on the show after Lincoln is unable to get money from mom and dad after they gave all the money to his sisters after they guilt trip him into helping them get money from them seeing how devastated Lincoln is in not being able to go the SMOOCH concert because of them the sisters show him their appreciation by hosting their own private concert as they perform their own song for him titled "Lincoln Loud the Best Dang Brother Anywhere Around" not only that but they also managed to get SMOOCH to perform for him and his friends. - egnomac

This moment really shows just how much the sisters care about Lincoln. - Loudhouserules

9 The Finale (A Regular Epic Finale) - Regular Show
10 Brawl in the Family (Lethal Weapons) - Family Guy Brawl in the Family (Lethal Weapons) - Family Guy

Personally I thought it was hilarious watching the entire Griffin family just break down and start beating the crap out of each other after having to undergo anger management only for this powder keg to go off as Lois punches Peter then Peter retaliates and punched Lois much to her surprise as the two go at it as Meg, Chris, Brian and Stewie join in as the whole family breaks out into a free for all. - egnomac

The Contenders

11 Bugs Bunny's Square Dance (Hillbilly Hare) - Looney Tunes Bugs Bunny's Square Dance (Hillbilly Hare) - Looney Tunes

That song was pretty catchy as Bugs acts as the square dance caller to have two hillbillies beat each other up before both falling off a cliff knocking them out. - egnomac

12 The Happy Happy Joy Joy Song (Stimpy's Invention) - The Ren and Stimpy Show The Happy Happy Joy Joy Song (Stimpy's Invention) - The Ren and Stimpy Show

Stimpy in an effort to make Ren happy forces him to wear a hemlet he made to force Ren to be happy much to Ren's annoyance as Ren is forced into being all happy against his will as Stimpy plays the Happy Happy Joy Joy song as the pair sing and dance along until Ren jumps into the kitchen and grabs a hammer and smashes the helmet on his head as he rushes over to Stimpy no longer under the control of the helmet as he furiously grabs him by the neck and yells at him for putting him through all that. - egnomac

17 The Death of Chef (The Return of Chef) - South Park
18 Do It for Her (And Maggie Makes Three) - The Simpsons

An emotional ending to a great episode as Homer plasters pictures of Maggie over the plaque Mr. Burns installed to demotivate Homer until it says "Do it For Her! " to help motivate Homer. - egnomac
