Best Nickelodeon Shows That Were Cancelled

nelsonerica
Back then, Nickelodeon used to e great, but then when Cyma Zarghami became president, and when Stephen Hillenburg retired from SpongeBob after its first movie, it all went downhill with cr@ppy shows.
And many of the good ones got cancelled, this is about cancelled shows, not shows that ended their full run.

The Top Ten

1 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.

Invader Zim was without a doubt one of the best shows Nickelodeon has ever made, it had a variety of stuff that kept us glued, it was action packed, it contained so much drama as well, and it even had emotions and lessons, it was full of comedy too, we know it was too dark and scary for kids, but it was so great to watch, and we were hoping for a movie, but then not long after it started, it got cancelled.

Yet ever since its cancellation, fans were signing a petition to Nickelodeon to bring Invader Zim back, yet it made a cultural impact on Nickelodeon since that day, but Nickelodeon decided not to revive it, yet it was said that it got cancelled because of issues, such as low ratings and that it didn't fit with the target audience. - nelsonerica

I NEED TO STOP BUT I WONT EVER - BoliRoasts

It was produced by Billionfold Studios and distributed in Canada by Nelvana, a Canadian animation company.

Danny Phantom was such a good show, it was very awesome and funny, but sadly got cancelled, fans were begging Nickelodeon to bring it back, but Nickelodeon decided not to, it's just so awful that Nickelodeon doesn't care about what they say and that they want to keep on doing what they want to do, they want money and not stuff for their fans. - nelsonerica

At least it never went downhill like The Fairly OddParents did. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

So good! I loved almost every episode!

3 Rugrats Rugrats Rugrats is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain for Nickelodeon.

It was one of the best shows on Nickelodeon, but ever since SpongeBob aired and when it outbeat Rugrats in popularity, it got cancelled, it was such a great show, but now we have SpongeBob, and SpongeBob was so great until after the first movie, but thankfully got great again. - nelsonerica

4 Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life is an American animated television series created by Joe Murray for Nickelodeon.

True - BoliRoasts

Once again, Nickelodeon made a great show for people, it was another grown up show, and it had sexual content, but it was funny and filled with awesome moments you would never get tired of, but it shamefully got cancelled as it didn't fit with Nickelodeon's target audience, and yet John Kricfalusi got fired by Nickelodeon, which was shameful, it wasn't safe to watch, but it was entertainin. - nelsonerica

5 The Ren & Stimpy Show The Ren & Stimpy Show The Ren & Stimpy Show, often simply referred to as Ren & Stimpy, is an American animated television series created by John Kricfalusi for Nickelodeon.

Ren & Stimpy was one of the best things ever made by Nickelodeon, we know it was too gross and inapproriate for children, it was for teens, but it was so great and it had awesome moments and it was very funny and entertaining, we got a good laugh about it and enjoyed it so much, no wonder it was so important for Nickelodeon, but when it got cancelled, people were complaining about wanting to see it again, they said that if it kept running it would make more good episodes, it did come back on Spike as "Ren and Stimpy: Adult Party Cartoon", but it was nothing like the original, it was boring, stupid and more inappropriate than the original show "Ren & Stimpy", it was horrible. - nelsonerica

All That was a variety sketch franchise, it was even the best sketch show anyone could ever watch, it was filled with comedy, jokes, stunts, and other forms of entertainment, it made everyone laugh and smile, it was so funny you could never leave the T.V. or PC, unfortunately, it got cancelled, but when it first revived, it got a new cast, which deteriorated the charm of the show, but then later on, it was permanently cancelled, and it got a sad announcement on the end, they decided to stop in the middle of more things. - nelsonerica

14 House of Anubis House of Anubis House of Anubis is a mystery television series developed for Nickelodeon based on the Dutch-Belgian television series Het Huis Anubis.

House of Anubis was one of the greatest modern shows on Nickelodeon, it had mystery and it was the first daily show on Nickelodeon, each season and episode left us entertained, spellbound and on a cliffhanger after each episode, but tragically, after Season 3, it got cancelled, people were crying when it got cancelled, it was said that it got low ratings, but also Nickelodeon has gotten so desperate lately that they don't care about their fans anymore. - nelsonerica

It was one of the best live action shows on Nick, it was funny too, but sadly after it's first movie length episode, it got cancelled, there should've been a graduation episode, and there could've been a spinoff called Ned's Declassified High School Survival Guide, but the actors decided to move on to other things.

Cookie decided to be in Zeke and Luther, on Disney, and the others just simply gave up, that show got cancelled too. - nelsonerica

pro only - BoliRoasts

It got low ratings initially being the reason why, but the bad shows got low ratings and are renewed for more seasons, so it shows you that it was Viacom's fault for being so arrogant and cancelling the good shows.

26 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.

Please die now you thrash fan boy - BoliRoasts

Who put this here? It wasn't a good show, not to offend you, but it was an awful show about two characters jumping around and playing stupid, they even acted like they were on crack drugs, which is harmful.

Not to bully you, and I don't mean to, but it wasn't a good show, so many people hated it, and it's true why it got so much hate.

It deserved to be cancelled. That show was bad and was nothing but complete and utter nonsense. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Another great show on Nickelodeon, yet it was on modern Nickelodeon, but it was great, it was full of comedy and fun, and people got slimed and junked, yet they were guessing riddles and answers and they were eager to find out, then it got cancelled, it's no wonder that Nickelodeon keeps cancelling good shows and keeping bad ones for more seasons. - nelsonerica

It was another decent show, especially in Nick's modern period, where it was hitting rock bottom after shows like Fanboy & Chum Chum, Sanjay and Craig and Nick Studio 10 aired, and we thought there was no hope, but when Every Witch Way aired, we found hope that Nickelodeon was still alive, then when it ended, we were sad that a good show went away, but when WITS Academy went on, we were glad to see that Nickelodeon can still make good spinoffs, but then later after season 1 ended, Nickelodeon cancelled it, now we've lost another good show, and it just shows us that Nickelodeon is still desperate for money and that they don't care about their fans anymore, there were other shows, like Harvey Beaks, 100 Things To Do Before High School, but they got cancelled too, and the upcoming show "The Loud House", Plus, SpongeBob has gotten better, as Stephen Hillenburg returned during the second movie, Sponge Out of Water. - nelsonerica

A good show on Nickelodeon, cancelled due to bad ratings/SpongeBob, Nickelodeon needs to respect their fans more.

I can't believe Nickelodeon would cancel it, and given the title 100 Things, it should have 100 episodes.
It was a good show, and many are awful these days, the episodes weren't very popular thought, so must be why it got cancelled, low ratings, and to make room for School Of Crap and more bad shows.
