The Top Ten

1 Spongebob Squarepants Spongebob Squarepants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 18 years, and is beginning its 11th season. The show ...read more.

When SpongeBob first came out he was good, but after the movie everything went bad. SpongeBob is annoying Patrick is dumber than a rock Squidward is a jerk Mr. Krabs is sadistic, greedy, and cheap. And the humor is just so gross! And Nickelodeon airs SpongeBob like 8 times a DAY. But of course, the kids love SpongeBob and he isn't showing any signs of being canceled

This sponge is probably the dumbest excuse for a cartoon character he laughs so annoying and he acts so weird and don't get me started on his friends the star is stupid, the squid is dull, the squirrel is big mouthed, the Krab is cheap, the small thing makes no impression, the whale is all of the above. The only good one is Gary

Squidward is awesome. COME ON! None of this is true in seasons 1-5. But if it's season 6-present, it's true except "the squid is dull" - Goatworlds

SpongeBob Sqaurepants is the best and I mean BEST Nickelodeon show! He has funny adventures along with his best friend Patrick and his next door neighbor Squiward. My favorite character is Patrick because he is a strong, funny and dumb character.

Modern spongebob is so underrated, SPONGEBOB IS THE SHOW EVER, AND IF U don't THINK SO JUST CRY ABOUT IT

2 iCarly iCarly iCarly is an American teen sitcom that ran on Nickelodeon from September 8, 2007 until November 23, 2012. The series, created by Dan Schneider, focuses on teenager Carly Shay, who creates her own web show called iCarly with her best friends Sam Puckett and Freddie Benson.

I agree because they are role models for youth and they take that for granted with their inappropriate segments that are dumb, offensive or just plain stupid. I am not trying to offend them or make them feel bad or anything. As a wise man had once said; The Truth Hurts! Please comment about my post and share your thoughts and opinions too! - puppy18

It is not funny in my opinion. I am 11, and I don't like some of the things the characters do, which are either cruel, dorky or just plain silly.

Hey at least SpongeBob started out good. This show was lame from the beginning. - Garythesnail

This is utter trash

3 The Wild Thornberries

Overrated? I don't think so.

4 Victorious Victorious Victorious is an American sitcom created by Dan Schneider that originally aired on Nickelodeon from March 27, 2010 through February 2, 2013 . The series revolves around aspiring singer Tori Vega, a teenager who attends a performing arts high school called Hollywood Arts High School, after taking her ...read more.

This show is crap & this list is wrong spongebob used to be overrated but now everyone's hating on it and is not overrated now its just hated it still has a spark of magic that only the voice actors can bring no matter how bad the script is the voice actors make it good so stop hating on a sponge. Now I used to like this show then every character turned into a stereotype of themselves the thing I hate is how this show is so loved by everyone even though it lost all its inspirational meaning it was kind of mean for me to call it crap but now it really is crap.

This show highly overrated, characters are overrated, tori is a mary sue, andre meh, beck ok, robbie was funny at first but when new seasons come in he didn't, I loved jade in the first season but in the next seasons I don't, cat is so overrated even her actress shes just to overhyped in my taste, don't get me started on trina, I love it at first but when new seasons come in I stoped loving it

This brings Nick's Disney ripoffs to a new low.

It doesn't have humour. Jade is mean, Robbie is annoying, Cat is dumb, Beck is 'handsome', Trina is talentless while the best friends Tori and Andre are 'perfect'? Mad Kids Show!

5 Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life is an American animated television series created by Joe Murray for Nickelodeon. The series centers on the surreal life of an anthropomorphic Australian-immigrant wallaby named Rocko as well as his friends: the gluttonous steer Heffer, the neurotic turtle Filburt, and Rocko's faithful ...read more.

This is actually starting to become true... However, RML is still by far the all-time greatest Nickelodeon show in terms of pure quality... Too good for its own good. However, it's NO Ren & Stimpy in terms of cultural impact or style.

Rocko's Modern Life is actually my favorite 90's Nicktoon with Hey Arnold being second. This show is a classic.

This show is not even close to being overrated.

Aw come on, this show is underrated.

6 Back at the Barnyard Back at the Barnyard Back at the Barnyard is a Nickelodeon computer-animated television series that is a spin-off from the 2006 film, Barnyard.
7 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

L'm a Wario I'm a gonna punch whoever put TMNT on the list

8 The Penguins of Madagascar The Penguins of Madagascar The Penguins of Madagascar is an American CGI animated television series that has aired on Nickelodeon.
9 CatDog CatDog CatDog is an American animated television series created by Peter Hannan for Nickelodeon. The series depicts the life of conjoined brothers, with one half being a cat and the other a dog.

It's Overrated But It's Not Bad.

Stupid concept. How does cat dog ar use the bathroom?
Family guys jokes about CatDawg all the way!

10 Zoey 101 Zoey 101 Zoey 101 is an American teen drama television series which originally aired on Nickelodeon from January 9, 2005 until May 2, 2008. It focuses on the lives of teenager Zoey Brooks (Jamie Lynn Spears), her brother (Paul Butcher), and her friends as they attend Pacific Coast Academy (PCA), a fictional ...read more.

Zoey is just a dainty control freak and this whole show is for little girls. No wonder it's so overrated!

The Contenders

11 Sam & Cat Sam & Cat Sam & Cat is an American teen sitcom that originally aired from June 8, 2013, to July 17, 2014, on Nickelodeon. It is a crossover spin-off/sequel of both iCarly and Victorious.

The Disney Brain has too much undeserved hate for putting Sam & Cat on his list of "Top 5 Worst Nickelodeon Shows". Ariana Grande needs more hate for being racist, being dainty and licking donuts to leave her germs on them, which are such overrated sins.

12 Avatar: The Last Airbender Avatar: The Last Airbender Avatar: The Last Airbender is an American animated television series that aired for three seasons on Nickelodeon from 2005 to 2008. Avatar: The Last Airbender is set in an Asiatic-like world in which some people are able to manipulate the classical elements by use of psychokinetic variants of Chinese ...read more.

I just can't get into this show, I don't hate it I just don't enjoy watching it, it's not as unique as everyone thinks it is and its popularity has gotten to the point where people say it's the greatest show Nick has made, which I don't think is true, they've made far better and far more unique shows, if you like this show that's fine but I just don't think it's the masterpiece everyone says it is

Why is this on the list avatar is way better then spongebob

It's not really anything special, there's lots of similar shows like Dragonball Z and One Piece that are also overrated. I personally don't like Avatar, I watched like about 4 episodes to try it out and it was ok, easily forgettable to me and nothing too new, good, or special.

While certainly not terrible, this is in my humble opinion, THE most overrated T.V. show ever made. It's just not my cup of tea, I'm far happier with light and silly comedies. Same goes for Korra.

13 Aahhh!!! Real Monsters!
14 Are You Afraid of the Dark?

No Offense To The People Who Like This Show, But I'm Sorry Though I'm " Afraid " This Show Is Overrated.

No, I do not think this is overrated at all

15 Nick Studio 10 Nick Studio 10

This is the most overrated live show on Nick, it always interrupts shows every 15 minutes.

16 The Ren and Stimpy Show

In the public eyes: This show is a WAY better series than Rocko ever was.

In reality: Rocko is a WAY better series than this stupid overrated crap ever was. - xandermartin98

I think that people seriously underestimate how astronomically overrated Ren & Stimpy actually was and still is to this day. Although Rocko is technically very overrated now, it still deserves more love.

This shouldn't be on the list. This show is actually underrated. This show is comedy gold. Doesn't deserve being on the list.

17 How to Rock How to Rock How to Rock is a critically panned American teen sitcom that ran on Nickelodeon from February 4 to December 8, 2012. It stars Cymphonique Miller as Kacey Simon. The series is based on the 2011 book, How to Rock Braces and Glasses by Meg Haston published by Little, Brown Books For Young Readers and Alloy ...read more.

All genders are equal, but when Nickelodeon is making paleofeminist shows, they make males and females just as useless. Plus the female rock guitarist seems like she is in the second quarter-decade of her life. Either way, I give How to Rock a 2/10. So compared to other Modern Nickelodeon shows, I am able to actually tolerate How to Rock! - The Ultimate Daredevil

I thought this well be a guy show but it wasn't and I hate how to rock.

18 The Loud House The Loud House The Loud House is an American animated television series created by Chris Savino for Nickelodeon. The series revolves around the chaotic suburban everyday life of a boy named Lincoln Loud and his ten sisters, to which he survives as the middle child and only son in a large family of eleven children. ...read more.

This show's fanbase is too large and annoying. Enough said. - Target

This piece of generic crap should be number one.

Should be 1

19 T.U.F.F. Puppy T.U.F.F. Puppy T.U.F.F. Puppy is a cartoon created by Butch Hartman. It ran on Nickelodeon from October 2, 2010 until April 4, 2015. It focused on Dudley Puppy and his partner Kitty Katswell as they protected Petropolis under the Turbo Undercover Fighting Force, or T.U.F.F.

This Show is My favorite along with Robot and monster I'm 14 now so I stopped watching cartoons since 12 years old And boi! Am I thankful

20 Wendell & Vinnie Wendell & Vinnie Wendell & Vinnie is an American sitcom television mini-series that premiered on Nickelodeon on February 16, 2013 and ran until September 22, 2013. The series stars Jerry Trainor and Buddy Handleson. The first official promo for the show was released on December 21, 2012.

It gets way too much praise on both iMDB and YouTube. Granted, Wendell & Vinnie is actually a good show by itself. But as a Nickelodeon show, it is way too inappropriate for the incredibly childish demographic the network it's on has. Nickelodeon conceived this. I may be raunchy, but this is a very terrible show for children. - The Ultimate Daredevil

This show is too inappropriate for children. Wendell is a geek that wears a tie everyday and has hardly any friends. Vinne talk to much about sexual activity and sexual related jokes. This show should be rated T.V. mA and should be on Adult swim or Comedy Central because it's too inappropriate for children under the age of 12. I don't think this show is funny at all it's just a rip off of regular show (Even thought I hate regular show more than Wendell and Vinne). Thank god this show got removed in 2013 and only ran for 9 months.

21 Rocket Power Rocket Power Rocket Power is an American animated television series. The series debuted on Nickelodeon on August 16, 1999. The series ended on July 30, 2004 after four seasons.

Mr. Enter was right about Rocket Power being teen-pandering. The animation in Rocket Power suits my style, but this show is normally focused too much on being all like "Whoa! Totally radical, dude! ". It proves why the 90s is not the greatest decade of all time (I, the Ultimate Daredevil am a 90s kid as well, but I certainly do not overlook the other decades of the 20th Century meaning that I am a 20th Century kid and even a 2nd millennium kid). I give Rocket Power a 6/10 (8/10 for the animation, 7/10 for the sound, 3/10 for the story and 6/10 for the characters).

22 Invader Zim Invader Zim Invader Zim is an American animated television series created by Jhonen Vasquez for Nickelodeon. The series centers on an extraterrestrial named Zim from the planet Irk, and his mission to conquer Earth and enslave the human race along with his malfunctioning robot servant GIR.

This show does get an awful a lot of attention, but it's not as violent as Sanjay and Craig. I like the little green alien because he's pretty cute. Plus, there are other shows that are worse.

This show is just annoying. Zim is a decent character but Dib is incredibly annoying, Gir is stupid and Gaz is just the one dimensional goth. The show is really never funny and I still think it's a decent show. Its got good plots and phenomenal animation, its just not the best. - bashed

This show is good but everyone thinks it's the best show ever, I just can't believe that people think this show is better than spongbob

This is life

23 Fanboy & Chum Chum Fanboy & Chum Chum Fanboy & Chum Chum is an American 3D CGI animated television series created by Eric Robles for Nickelodeon. It is based on Fanboy, an animated short created by Robles for Nicktoons and Frederator Studios, which was broadcast August 14, 2009 to July 12, 2014 on Random! Cartoons. The series was first ...read more.

What the hell is this?!

It's absolutely depressing that people are happy with Cartoon Palooza for giving Fanboy and Chum Chum an "IT'S WORTH IT! " rating and bash PhantomStrider for completely wishing that Fanboy & Chum-Chum NEVER won the Emmy Awards. >8(

24 Danny Phantom Danny Phantom Danny Phantom is an American animated series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon. It was produced by Billionfold Studios and distributed in Canada by Nelvana, a Canadian animation company. The series follows a teenage boy who, after an accident with an unpredictable portal between the human world ...read more.

Dummy Phantom Is Crap.

Dunny Makke you STOOPEED.

25 Planet Sheen Planet Sheen Planet Sheen is an American CGI animated television series. It is a spinoff series in the Jimmy Neutron franchise, focusing on the show's comic relief, Sheen Estevez, as he gets stranded on another planet. The show was hated by critics and fans for not using any of the original cast (besides the obvious), ...read more.

This is a VERY crappy ripoff of Jimmy Neutron. I can understand trying to help a good show, but this just SUCKS. It's lame and unoriginal, and should have left long ago. They should just drop this show entirely and make new Jimmy Neutrons.

I miss Jimmy Neutron. Now, we're stuck with this annoying troll. - DunnaNunnaBatman

This Show Actually Isn't Overrated, Because Everyone Hates This Show.

26 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.

Doug narrates each story in his journal, and the show ...read more.
28 Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig is an American animated television series produced by Nickelodeon. The show is about a 12-year-old boy named Sanjay Patel who owns a talking pet snake named Craig.

Overrated because it doesn't get enough hate! But that would mean Breadwinners is more overrated. - Goatworlds

Definitely not a good show. I really hope it gets canceled soon.

It gets way too much hate

29 Every Witch Way Every Witch Way Every Witch Way is an American telenovela-formatted teen sitcom that originally aired on Nickelodeon from January 1, 2014, to July 30, 2015. It is the American version of the Nickelodeon Latin American show Grachi.

This tele-novel or sitcom mix is WAY too overrated, it's so good that you have to see it.

This tele-novel or sitcom mix is actually underrated.

30 Game Shakers Game Shakers Game Shakers is an American television sitcom created by Dan Schneider that premiered on Nickelodeon on September 12, 2015. The series revolves around two seventh graders named Babe and Kenzie who start the multi-million-dollar title gaming company and who take on rap superstar Double G as their business ...read more.

This Show Is Even Worse Than Henry Danger!

Review of the characters:

Babe: is bossy and annoying

Kenzie: a random nerd

That blond kid: just weird

I actually like this show. Respect my opinion please. Thank you!

31 Rabbids Invasion Rabbids Invasion Rabbids Invasion (French: Les Lapins Crétins : Invasion) is a French/American animated television series which premiered on August 3, 2013, on Nickelodeon. The series began airing on Nicktoons during its second season in late 2015. On June 23, 2017, the series finale ended during its third season. ...read more.

Ah well, looks like another civil war between likers and dislikers is coming...

Bwah, this show is superb, put it back on the air nick.

Why is this here?

Higher than Rugrats? Rugrats was overrated, Hey Arnold! was underrated! Sorry, but it's true!

33 The Angry Beavers The Angry Beavers The Angry Beavers is an American animated television series created by Mitch Schauer for the Nickelodeon Channel The series revolves around Daggett and Norbert Beaver, two young beaver brothers who have left their home to become bachelors in the forest near the fictional Wayouttatown, Oregon.
34 Pig Goat Banana Cricket Pig Goat Banana Cricket Pig Goat Banana Cricket is an American animated television series created by Dave Cooper and Johnny Ryan for Nickelodeon.

First episode already a stupid show

36 Monster High Monster High

The series revolves around a 13-year-old boy who becomes the sidekick of a local superhero. On March 2, 2017, Nickelodeon announced that a new animated series, ...read more.

This show is overrated. Almost everyone likes this, and all the 9 year old girls think "JACE NORMAN IS SO HOT XOXO! " - Cartoonfan202

Despite the unanimous praise PhantomStrider's list of "Top 10 Worst Nickelodeon Shows" got, there were opinion disrespecters that act like Henry Danger is awesome. It doesn't have the worst concept, but it borrows from Batman and The Incredibles. The execution of Henry Danger was very abysmal. The names of the places are too dumb and horrible for us. Junk N' Stuff?! Swellview?! NOO! WHY, NICKELODEON?! YOU COULD DO BETTER, DAN SCHNEIDER?! I GIVE HENRY DANGER A LOWER RATING THAN 1/5! >:(

38 The Fairly OddParents The Fairly OddParents The Fairly OddParents is an American animated television series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon.

100% agree. Timmy is way too selfish and stupid of a character.

Danny Phantom shouldn't have been cancelled. FOP should have.

The series follows the lives of two teenage boys with opposite personalities, Drake Parker (Drake Bell) and Josh Nichols (Josh Peck), who become stepbrothers.

DUDE WHY IS THIS ON THIS LIST THIS WAS PART OF MY CHILDHOOD! This show is underrated because it's not on Nick anymore and more people like ICARLY. I don't watch ICARLY anymore but drake and josh was better. Take this off this list now or a riot will start!

This Show Is Underrated. Not Overrated! ICarly Is The One That's Overrated Not This Show! SO TAKE IT OFF!

But I love this show...😩

40 The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron

I agree! It started off as a decent kid's movie but when the T.V. show came, it became crap quickly, also the CGI looked terrible and the characters were annoying, heck we got to see Jimmy's parents more and they were as dull and annoying as possible (thank god in the movie we only saw them for a couple amount of minutes).

41 React to That React to That

A YouTube-imported show that's so crappy it's WAY too overrated.
