Best Nickelodeon Cartoons of All Time
Seasons 1-4 were the best show ever! It's not as good now but it's still good.
Seasons 1, 2, and 3 were the time when the show was at its best. I own all 3 of these seasons on DVD, and I am a HUGE fan of them. In my book, these seasons were when the episodes were all great, the characters lovable, the morals good, and everything about it just so funny. The SpongeBob movie was as great as the show.
Season 4 was a bit of a downslide, but it was still amazing. Still my favorite show. It had mostly good episodes but it had some bad ones too. The bad ones are All That Glitters, Squid Wood, and The Thing.
Season 5 was good, but not as good as past seasons.
Seasons 6 and 7 were terrible.
Season 8 was decent.
And season 9 was very good.
SpongeBob SquarePants Movie-10/10
To me it was The Fairly Oddparents or Spongebob Squarepants. It was pretty hard. I really do like The Fairly Oddparents humor more than spongebob, but spongebob has gotten a lot better humor than seasons 6 to 8. It's improved a lot while The Fairly Oddparents has gone WAY downhill. But spongebob was funny, had REALLY good plots, and was really creative. But I do kinda miss it's innapropiate comedy. (Goodness I'm spelling words wrong) But spongebob was my show through my childhood. Sadly for me I was born at the end of season 5 so I wasn't watching the good episodes. But I still loved them.
I came here from November 26th because Stephen Hillenburg died of ALS a muscle. People thought SpongeBob was gonna end because of this, its really not he stopped after a while. That's why the anime is different and also he left they didn't kick him out, some of the producers still stayed. I was very sad to see this and that Stan Lee died a few weeks died earlier. I really hope this does not destroy Nick, SpongeBob will still live on. Kids were crying in my school when they heard this news.
First I want to say that I really enjoyed the first 3 seasons of the show. Back then this show rocked :)
BUT we are not voting for ONLY 3 seasons, but the whole show that includes every single of the cheap crap seasons afterwards (after 2008 to be precise). I mean come on this show doesn't deserve the first place we're voting for the BEST show not the most POPULAR (in that case FIFTY SHADES OF GREY would be one of the best book of all time...)
Nick invests in this show because its more profitable (and lazier) just to make a new season of it than coming up with a new great show like E.G. avatar: The Last Airbender. That's partly why it's the most popular show because it's the only thing to watch on Nickelodeon right now.
The new producers have no idea why we liked the characters in the first 3 seasons and now all SpongeBob is doing now, is being annoying, cry and love his work. I mean this is his whole life... The only "good one" left is Squidward and he is just a mean ...more
This show is a masterpiece, and is more well-rounded, balanced, and developed than most cartoons AND live-action shows I've ever seen. I simply cannot express how this show has challenged my way of thinking about our world issues today (war, violence, racial issues, vengeance, forgiveness and mercy, and many others). The messages this show displays not only serves as a teaching point for a children's cartoons, but the creators also incorporates those messages as part of the plot and part of the character. For example, for one of our heroes, who is a vegetarian and was born into a culture of peace and non-violence, he faces his own moral dilemma of whether it is right to take another's life. Unlike most other children's cartoon, which would simply use the message as a device to teach the lesson to children, the message is expressed through our characters and is also vital to the plot.
The characters, including the protagonists, antagonists, and even the secondary/minor ...more
Most cartoons are funny and enjoyable, but Avatar: the Last Airbender is so much more than that! It's got genuine humor, not just people getting hurt in silly ways or making funny noises. It has dimensional, dynamic, interesting characters who change, mature, and develop as the series goes on, and there isn't a line between good and bad. There's a gray area, like in the real world. And the Avatar universe is incredible. It has wonderful creatures like flying bison, platypus bears, and dragons. Benders can manipulate the elements of water, earth, fire, and air in spectacular displays. And the animation is a gorgeous blend of anime, American cartoons, and realistic paintings. Not that I (and my entire family) adore it or anything...
I absolutely adore this show. It has the right combination of humor, romance, action and touching moments. It's an amazing show because we get to see the characters grow up and develop before our very eyes. It's also a treat to see that some characters aren't as black and white as they seem, like Zuko, initially seen as an antagonist, actually is in conflict between in good and evil, his honor and losing himself. I love how it has a consistent plot, sticking to its main purpose and yet able to have random, funny moments without deviating from the actual plot. It's a beautiful fantasy but it draws me in because of its realistic situations and characters. Anyway, I love this show so much.
I honestly was expecting this to be at least 1 or 2, not 5! This show was so good, I rewatched it so many times and it never gets old. It was so hilarious, very clever, and there were really deep themes as well. It was very emotional at times and dealt with some mature things (hello a war and a genocide anyone? ) but somehow made it suitable and understandable for kids as well as older people. The characters were so incredibly well-developed (the most out of any cartoon series I've ever watched) and the whole show was so carefully planned - the pacing, story arcs and EVERYTHING. So epic. I got so attached to the characters and the story that when it ended I felt like a piece of me just died on the spot. Legend of Korra is good but the Last Airbender really holds a special place in my heart!
Oh really! How the heck is Rugrats at number 4. It should be number 1. I mean, come on. At least it was perfect and didn't have any suicide jokes unlikely modern SpongeBob. At least it didn't go on for too long because if it did then it would of sucked. I mean take a look at The Fairly oddparents and SpongeBob. That's why it's never good to keep shows on for too long. Anyway this show deserves to be number 1 instead of SpongeBob because SpongeBob lost it's taste in after 2004. This show is legendary. It's way better than SpongeBob.
HOLD UP! How is Spongebob higher than this awesome show! I may not hate Spongebob,but The Rugrats is a million times better than Spongebob. This show is legendary. This should be number 1 instead of Spongebob because it was way popular back then and it was the first popular show to come on Nickelodeon,So this show beats Spongebob,hands down!
I REALLY love Rugrats! I remember watching it for the first time when I was 3 years old. I'll never forget my favorite characters from this show!
The rugrats is a great show about a gang of babies and is aventures. I love all them, specially Angelica.
I was just 10 when I first watched Hey Arnold and I loved it back then. Now after 16 years I could rewatch the series and it amazes me how funny and amazing it remains, even as an adult. Great plots, strong characters, soothing music, everything fits in so perfectly! I just adore it now more than ever and I truly believe I'll enjoy watching Hey Arnold even when I'm gray and old some day :D Appreciate the two movies that were released and definitely looking foward for a season 6 and on <3
This show is the best Nikelodeon show ever! I was so devastated when it ended and when the Jungle Movie and The Patakis were cancelled. Nikelodeon needs to bring back this show because it would be good for their channel and many people will love it! I recently bought the complete series on DVD and it's amazing! I love it so much! I just hope one day they bring the show back and continue it where they left off or make the characters older and make a show about it! But I hope if they do it that Arnold does not move away because that would suck because he is one of the best characters along with Helga. But this show definitely deserves more love and a continuation
This has my vote! Hey Arnold is one of my favorite childhood shows that kept me going. Helga is one of the characters that kept the show alive, aside being a bully and poetic, she has a good heart and had a strong personality that made the show so intresting. Arnold in the other hand, he isn't aware of Helga's feelings for him since she hides it often when he is around her. Yet... they have said that he might have (possibly) feelings for him through some of the episodes. I fell in love with this show, because how it was based on the reality about kids. Crushes and bullies... and more! That's why this show kept going till the end. Don't worry guys... Nickelodeon has ONE more in stored of our hopeful Footbal Head ^^
Don't get me wrong I'm a huge SpongeBob fan, but Hey Arnold should easily be #1. Why? It's just so brilliant that it's almost unmatchable: amazing episodes, interesting plots, great life lessons, and very entertaining characters. And by the way, Helga is hilarious and so relatable! Gerald is cool, and Arnold is really kind and heartfelt. All in all, I will hold this show in a special place in my heart.
My favorite Nickelodeon show and probably my all time favorite show. This show pratically has everything: Time Travel, physically surfing the internet and T.V. channels, good moral lessons. The humor never wears off and any age group would enjoy it. The main characters (Cosmo, Wanda, and Timmy) are some of the best main characters in any story. They are extremely humorous and they help you feel better when you're feeling down because they're so emotionally moving.
This show is cool, I started watching it in August of last year, and I thought it was great. But I think it should have ended after it,s 8th season, because after that sparky the dog came along and then after that chloe arrived. I also think that if the live action movie was better it would have made a great series finale.
Besides SpongeBob this is my favorite cartoon on Nickelodeon. When I was little I used to always love to watch this show. The episodes never get old. I wish that this show was at least number 2 on the list. Great Jokes and Stories.
This is the best show ever! I've always liked and I never get bored watching the same episodes over and over. It is better than SpongeBob. I have a huge addiction to this show. And the episodes are really well done.
Invader Zim is still a very cool cartoon, but it does need some improvement. 1. The characters in the series should probably talk politely and not use as much trash talk as they normally should. 2. If Dib figured out if Zim was an alien and not human, then Zim would have to make his disguise have a nose, two ears, white skin, no gloves, and a different outfit. 3. Some of the grammar is spelled incorrectly. 4. The characters should be more positive role models. Gaz should be more sympathetic and supportive with her brother Dib, Zim should probably ask the tallest to go to a different planet, The tallest should of gave Zim a normal SIR and not GIR, because GIR is too hyperactive, Gaz should be happier, Zim should probably lower voice because he talks in a really loud tone. 5. Ms. Bitters should be as grouchy and mean as she always is she should probably learn to lighten up. Jhonen Vasquez remember Invader Zim can still be funny but in just a more positive way rather than a negative way.
Invader ZIM is by far the bets cartoon I have ever seen on any channel. It has always made me laugh. The characters are so memorable, and the show itself is just so creative and humorous. Dib has always been my favorite character, but I also love Zim, the tallests (They are just too funny), and Gir. The animation is beautiful. All the other shows on Nickelodeon are terrible, and even SpongeBob is losing its spark. The first 1-3 seasons of SpongeBob were great, and the movie was amazing, but after the movie, it all went slowly downhill. Invader Zim never loses it's spark.
Two words: Pure. Happiness. This show is without a doubt MY favorite cartoon as I watched it as a kid. Sure, it has some dark humor, but THAT IS WHAT WE (or at least me) ARE LOOKING FOR. This show brang joy to those who watched it, and it gave me joy too along with an AMAZING theme song that fit perfectly with Invader Zim's atmosphere and theme. So as I conclude, this show without a doubt is the best to me.
This show had balls. It introduced many children to the evils of humanity and the question of morality, all while being funny as hell. Even so, it didn't simply rely on shock like other dark shows; instead, the comedy was led by the battles between 3 truly likable characters (Zim, Dib and GIR) and their hilarious one-liners. It was a thrill ride.
AWESOME show, my personal favorite, but in all honesty, I hope it doesn't return for a fourth season. Don't get me wrong, I would LOVE to see what happens next like, how does Danny and Sam's relationship work out? Is it possible for Vlad to return? Does Dani Phantom get adopted by Danny's family? The list goes on. But we all need to take a good look at what Nickelodeon's become. The new art styles are HORRENDOUS, the writers couldn't write a good episode if they tried, the writers DON'T try to write good episodes, and bringing shows back hasn't been a good idea for a LONG time. Look what they did to Jimmy Neutron, or the Rugrats (not All Grown Up, I mean the pre-school days thing), they turned them into terrible "shows" that barely lasted a full season. I LOVE Jimmy Neutron and the Rugrats, and when they re-made those shows, they lost so many fans. They can have a chance to bring the show back, but they are most likely going to screw it up. Personally, I LOVE this show just the way it ...more
Danny Phantom was my favorite show as a kiddo. I wasn't ever sure why until I re watched the series as a 16- year old. Upon doing so I realized the sense of community I felt. The interactions between Danny's ghost enemies, whether that be the Christmas truce or Ember and Youngblood teaming up, I saw that Danny Phantom preached about always having a place to belong despite what society might think. Danny had a unique relationship with his enemies, they became almost like his friends. They helped to show that the biggest super power anyone has is self confidence and self worth. Danny Phantom tackled issues such as pressure to grow up, self worth, confidence, and essentially being a teenager in the modern era. Not only that but Danny Phantom featured a variety of ethnicities represented in a mainstream cartoon. Central characters were African American, Latina, and Asian. The show also had an interracial couple at one point. One of the three main characters was an African American! The ...more
Danny Phantom is underrated and honestly one of the best cartoons of all time, if not one of the best shows of all time. The art is amazing, stories wonderful and every single episode seemed to have meaning and care. It was weird while not being like many shows after the YouTube craze hit. I'm talking about the ones that are "dude, we're so random! " but end up not being random and end up just being dumb (Sanjay and Craig, etc.) It's so amazing but I hope that it doesn't return, unless for maybe an animated web series by the original creators. Anything that airs on Nick will not be the same as the original.
This used to be my favorite childhood show. I loved it. I really want Butch Hartman to bring it back, but I think that it's time to take a look at how Nickelodeon is now. I mean it has bad shows, except The Loud House, TMNT 2012, and Harvey beaks. I mean the writers wouldn't be able to write a good episode. We should also take a good look at how The Fairly oddparents is today. I mean Butch Hartman is already running out of ideas on that show and he doesn't want to end it. Now please don't get me wrong, I used to like The Fairly oddparents back in the day, but now that I look at it today, I feel like I don't want to watch it anymore. I feel bad for this show. The plot is repetitive, the episodes are getting weaker and weaker and so are the characters, same thing with SpongeBob today. I mean, I can't stand those two shows staying in our new generation anymore because they are gonna get even more worst. If Butch Hartman brought back Danny phantom, then he and the writers would of messed ...more
What?! This deserves to be in the top five! Predictably, Spongebob is number 1. Man, some people need to watch the 90's. I know it's the past, but Nickelodeon was great back then, much better than it is now. Ren and Stimpy was AWESOME! Much better than Sanjay and Craig, or The Fairly Odd Parents. I know when John left, it went WAY downhill, but still. Give it SOME credit for the first two years. This show never failed to make me laugh.
If only the new Spongebob was as merciful...
I'm so surprised this show is not in the Top 10 section! I mean, just like Doug and Rugrats, it was one of the first Nicktoons to air on Nickelodeon! It was insane, gross, crude, but I still love it to this day!
I don't understand why people love this show so much! This is totally the most overrated Nickelodeon show of all time! It's a rehash of bad movies like "The Master Of Disguise", "The Cat In The Hat", and " The Muppets Wizard of Oz"!
Ren and Stimpy is one of nickelodeon's most offensive shows ever due to crude animation, gross gags and sometimes homosexual scenes but that's why we love it!
I love The Loud House! It's easily one of the best cartoons that's currently airing on Nickelodeon. I mean, it actually beat SpongeBob in the ratings! Is that enough proof for you? (I have nothing against SpongeBob though.) The setup is good, the voice acting is great, the animation is just fantastic (I love how it's in the style of old 80's comic strips), the characters are both fun and lovable (my personal favorites are Leni, Luna, Lincoln, Lily, Lana, Lynn, and Lori), and the music is awesome. It should certainly replace Fairly Odd Parents in the Top 10 part of the list, since that show has obviously lost its charm and likability after its fifth season (I mean, even the newest episodes SpongeBob (post-Sponge Out of Water) are doing better than the modern episodes of FOP).
Personally, I don't watch The Loud House, but looking at how it's gotten more ratings than SpongeBob in June 2016, I think Nickelodeon has finally struck gold! Disney redeemed itself with Gravity Falls (that show will be dearly missed), Cartoon Network redeemed itself with Adventure Time, and now Nickelodeon has redeemed itself with The Loud House, the greatest redemption it has had since SpongeBob SquarePants getting better again in Season 9.
Should be in the top three! This show is great, it teaches about family and other life lessons and has relatable characters. This show has characters not just for the target age, but also for people all the way up to Lori's age and below Lincoln's! If you have not yet watched this, you should because you find something you can relate to and something funny or something you could just simply relate to! Five stars!
Is it weird that I'm almost fifteen and I ' love this show? I didn't think so. But anyway, The Loud House is the best modern cartoon on T.V.. I give it a 10/10 and I don't care if some episodes are bad, I'll still enjoy this show.
Okay, why is this not in the top 10?! This show is that good and has to be somewhere up there!
I remember watching this show as a kid, and many years later, I still thinks it holds up. The animation is great, the jokes are funny, the characters are both memorable and hilarious, and the music is awesome. Honestly, it's my Number 1 favorite Nicktoon. However, I really wish people would stop talking about how it's not a kids' show (it's possibly due to innuendos). So, what? It's still enjoyable to watch!
I also still find it amazing that the some of the writers for this show were some of the same people behind SpongeBob SquarePants and Phineas and Ferb. It's no wonder why I like those two shows!
This show's stories are known for being clever, creative, hilarious, and genuinely well-written, with tons of relatable themes and adult humor... The characters are incredibly colorful, quirky, and memorable... The theme song was arranged by the B-52's, and the graphics were masterful... I could go on, but I'll just finish by saying that I wish this show had gotten its share of DVD support sooner. I started watching it as a sophomore late this year and I love it. It has been a great (and sometimes dirty) influence for me as a teenager.
This show didn't get the airtime it deserved. It was easily the best cartoon with the wackiest sense of humor that could enchant kids and grown-ups likewise. I discovered the show in my twenties and fell in love with the crazy stupidity and had frequently cramps from laughing too hard. But I'm not surprised it's not at the top. Because it never explained what was funny or cheesy. You had to have certain experience in life to appreciate the presentation that was the silliest ever intentionally!
Best Nicktoon ever! Here's 5 reasons why:-The animation is nice and smooth-They had a LOT of adult references-It's interesting that the main character is a wallaby-The theme song is sung by my favorite band, the B-52's!-It's simply a really funny show!This, along with Invader Zim and Rugrats, is what you call a Nicktoon.
This cartoon is decent. There's nothing exceptionally good about it, and there's nothing exceptionally bad. The comedy sometimes works. And to be honest, the characters in this show have been seen in many other shows, sometimes being done better. On top of that, most of the characters are somewhat forgettable. Does it deserve a top ten spot? Certainly not.
Spongebob is definitely the number one Nickelodeon cartoon, fairly oddparents is a good show too but this is one of my favourite shows growing up, it should be in the top ten
Favorite cartoon of all time! I still watch it at night on teen nick laugh out loud
Because SpongeBob and Winnie the Pooh are in this.
My favorite cartoon of all time. Just watched the first in years and it was so good that I binged watched the entire series in a couple weeks and am heartbroken that it only lasted 3 seasons. One of the only shows that actually got better as the series progressed and also one of the only shows that actually have plot points that continue with the series. To many shows nowadays don't follow a storyline and just make a random episode that has nothing to do with the previous episodes. Please bring back Jimmy Neutron
The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron is the best show in Nickelodon History. In this show, are more than 100 episodes like:
Crouching Jimmy, hidden Sheen, The love Potion and More! Characters in this show are: Jimmy Neutron, Sheen Estevez, Carl Weezer, Libby Folfax, Cindy Vortex and more! I think "Adventures of Jimmy Neutron" is the best show ever!
2%? What disrespect. How dare you put fairly Odd Parents above this show? That show was good but this show was/is better. R.I.P. Jimmy Neutron
One of the best Nick shows because it has science and good characters and wonderful plot lines.
I loved this show almost as much as Avatar: The Last Airbender. It had themes that ran deeper than most shows on the network. It was awesome! It is such a shame that Nickelodeon mistreated a show that had so much potential.
I love legend of korra but I still think the last airbender is better! I love this show and I recomend it. In order to understand it I think that people should watch the last airbender first and the legend of korra! This show is amazing!
I like this show as much as I liked Avatar: The Last Airbender. Everything that made that show awesome is in here, only this show has a lot more bending action, which makes this show more fun to watch.
Appeals to all audiences, lives up to the reputation of The Last Airbender, and visually stunning in animation and storyline. I am a Korra worshiper. Laugh out loud
This show must be in the top tens, not 25. It is one of the most unique series that I have seen. It is one of the first Nicktoons to add some action. It has beautiful animation, likeable characters, good morals, and plenty of action. Without My Life as a Teenage Robot, there would not be Danny Phantom or Avatar. It deserves more credit for one of the first action cartoons and girl power series in Nickelodeon.
This needs to be in the top ten. This show is amazing. The adventures are zany and exciting, the villains always set up interesting situations, and the characters are hilarious. Overall, My Life As a Teenage Robot is one of the most clever cartoons I've ever seen in my life.
This show or Danny phantom needs to beat Spongebob. One of them needs to be number 1. It's not that I hate Spongebob I just think that it should be in the top 15 only because it's not good like how it used to be,So to be fair,I would put Spongebob at least number 11.
Needs to be revived and revamped. Had potential and still has potential.
I love this show. These two bros are a funny duo
This should be 1. Why wasn't in the top 10
Why wasn't top 10
One of the funniest shows should be top 5 but unfortunately nick cancelled it
This show should be in the top 2. The problem is, the majority of the people voting on this grew up in the 2000's, and have no idea what a good cartoon is. Shows from the '90's wipe the floors with the later cartoons.
How shows like fanboy and chum chum and tuff puppy are above doug is a complete blaspheme. How doug is rated at number 33 is even worse.
This should be in the top 5 at the VERY LEAST! It was one of many great shows growing up. 90's cartoons, what an era!
Loved how Doug was so good-natured and wanting to help others. there was always a moral takeaway. Disney ruined it though!
TMNT is the best ever show and I am a giant fan. I always loved those turtles and I will always do it! It has to be the number one, because of the amazing story, animation, voice cast. I am a girl and I love it! Also I love Mikey, he is my favourite character ever and I think he is the cutest! TMNT for ever!
This show is amazing! It should be number 1. My brother and cousins love it and I'm a girl. We have watched every episode so far up to the recent one. I like raph, My brother likes mikey. My oldest cousin loves leo and younger cousin loves donnie.
Deserves to be higher. I am female from an all girls school and everyone seems to like this show. The new episodes of SpongeBob is worse than this. TMNT 2012 deserves to be higher...
Why is this not #1? It's way better than SpongeBob! The new version of SpongeBob is just horrible. The show is mind blowing. And guess what? I'm a girl and I love it!
If you think this show is bad, you're dreaming.
The theme is good, the animation is good, and I had know idea why it got cancelled. Also, play the rocket power video games on GameCube and gameboy.
Absolute best cartoon of all time I love watching it with my kids can it wait for a new one so sad to see it go off the air!
Good cartoon but need more Patrice to become best. Give respond please thank very much
From all cartoons fan
Awesome cartoon but not as good as Avatar, SpongeBob, Rugrats etc.
The wild thornberrys, are cool! Based on a comedian named marvin and his son named nigel and their crew, a camerawoman named lorraine, a grunge cartoonist named deborah, a nature and myth geek named elizabeth, a strange boy named donnie, and a clever ape named darwin
Gotta pay respect to the classics. Much, much better than Avatar.
This was such a great show teaching us about wildlife.
This show was absolutely wonderful and hilarious and great love it
I really can't believe that ATBG is only at the 20th place. This proves to me again that this "cartoon" (personally I prefer animated series, because I feel like this one deserves more than just the word "cartoon") is way too underrated. The storelines are actually something t (w) eens actually can relate to; even I as a 17-year-old can still relate to some of the problems Ginger and her friends have to face (e.G. drinking too much coffee in order to stay up to study, but falling asleep at school). And of course the animation itself is amazing: characters actually have 5 fingers (instead of 4, which most cartoon characters have), characters have an entire garderobe instead of just 1 outfit for the entire series and the mood in some of the scenes gives me goosebumps (e.G. the scene where Ginger reads her And She Was Gone poem).
Conslusion: Vote ATBG up people! It deserves way better than 20th place and only 0, 06% of your votes!
Always enjoyed shows like this, Daria and Pelswick.
I love this show so much! In my opinion it's funnier than Monsters inc.
This show is okay, but it gets freaky when Steve or Joe draws clues in their notebooks, they come to life, and start singing about themselves.
Blue's Clues is better than Fanboy and Chum Chum!
That show was my childhood.
Brings back good memories.
I love this show. It's cousin Butch Hartman work I most love. The universe which constitutes anthropomorphics animals, action and adventure that resembles Zootopia and Sly Cooper. The characters are very well made, the bad guys are funny. The show was successful without need magic (The Fairly OddParents) or super powers (Dany Phantom), only needed to combat crime + science fiction. The show is decent and suitable for children and not to mention it's beautiful parts of some of the episodes involving emotions of the characters. He has to earn more seasons.
Decent show. I don't like it myself as it seems stupid but others like it.
This show is so underrated, it deserves more praise than it gets.
Creative and funny show
It's one of the spinoffs that were actually good.
Very good spin-off.
This show is awesome but Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sucks
