Both actors previously appeared in The Amanda Show along ...read more.

Drake and Josh was in a mixture of shows that made of my childhood. Probably #2 on my list behind iCarly or #1

This show was by far the best show I seen on Nickelodeon and the best one I seen in a long time. - steelers1979

This, early SpongeBob, Invader Zim, and Fairly Odd Parents was the whole reason I WATCHED Nickelodeon. - Catacorn

Zoey 101 is second only to this

2 SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator the late Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 20 years, and is beginning its 12th season. ...read more.

SpongeBob was spectacular until after the first movie (which was also great). Once the fourth season hit you could tell something was off (beyond the stark changes in the animation and voice acting). The biggest issue was that the writing got sloppy (which it still is - more than ever). - BKAllmighty

Too bad it went downhill after the first movie. But I did hear it's starting to get better after the second movie. Either way, the old SpongeBob was a classic. They should show reruns of it more than the new ones. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

SpongeBob is Nickelodeon's best show ever to exist.

SpongeBob at #2?! Should be #1! Though Drake & Josh is good but not as good as ATLA and SBSP - PeeledBanana

3 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.

Avatar The Last Airbender was very innovative and there wasn't any kid show like it at it's time. It had great characters, great world building, fantastic and interesting lore, amazing fight scenes, and it took its audience seriously, no matter what age they were. The series still holds up to this day compared to other Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and Disney Channel shows, and deserves to be at the #1 spot.

I love this show so much...I used to be absolutely addicted to it. Super excited for Smoke and Shadow part 3, which I pre-ordered and is coming out Tuesday!

Have it as number 1 on my Top 10 Cartoons Nickelodeon Should Show Reruns Of List. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Uh, why is this #3? Surely deserves the #1 spot - PeeledBanana

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

In the early 00's, when I wasn't watching SpongeBob, chances are it was because this show was on. - BKAllmighty

This is pretty easily my favorite show EVER, thank you very much. It deserves to be on the list. I guess you could say I was a fan of paranormal stuff even BEFORE it, but THIS?! Good work, Butch.

This is easily the best nickelodeon show hands down. Though I feel like it should get more mentioned.

This is the best series ever. At first I watched a video about good cartoons with bad episodes.i liked the concept of Danny phantom so I watched it. When I finished I was in aw. Also this series doesn't get much respect.on literally every video about amazing nickelodeon shows it's always on stinking honorable mentions but I think this is easily the best animated T.V. show in the world.
