1 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 theme is the best! It sums up Zim's villainous and psychopathic personality. - MorganDunn

Creepy and futuristic. Also alien, of course.

An iconic theme song. I'd be surprised if any child doesn't even know the theme song of SpongeBob SquarePants. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Spongebob may not be the same as it used to be, but I'm glad they kept the theme song the same all these years unlike Fairly OddParents. - Disneykid00

Childhood nostalgia enough said. Everyone should be familiar with it - Randomator

Endearing lyrics, happy nautical beat...You can't help but sing along!

3 Danny Phantom

Apparently ChatNoirFan18 thinks I am lying well I do research and Butch Hartman (creator of DP) revealed it in an interview so not stolen. They also changed it to a rap and that's it. And you have to be the creator to know if it is stolen or not so make sure you know your facts before you post everywhere that the theme song is stolen when it was revealed by the creator himself that it was inspired. I apologize if this was anyway offensive.

Gonna catch 'em all 'because he's Danny Phantom! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I suspect someone is spam voting this entry higher.

I'm sorry, WHAT?! How is Danny Phantom not number one?
Yo, Danny Phantom; he was just fourteen
when his parents build a very strange machine..
-Keeps singing as she leaves, and you can still hear it when she leaves the web page-

4 ChalkZone ChalkZone is an American animated television series created by Bill Burnett and Larry Huber for Nickelodeon.

I love when Snap raises part of his body from the chalkboard and says Rudy's got that chalk! "

That guitar good god is that awesome.

Underrated cartoon with an awesome theme song.

Best theme ever!

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

The old one was good, but the new one sucked. At least Spongebob didn't replace their theme song with something garbage.

I'm thinking the old, pre-2016 theme song, but the new one is surprisingly good too! (makes me want to start watching it again)

I HEAVILY agree with MorbidCannibalSlayer. The original theme song had so much charm and soul put into it and truly brought some magic to our childhoods. Now the new one is just pathetic. Why did you have to ruin my childhood, Chloe Carmichael?! - ModernSpongeBobSucks


6 Hey Arnold! Hey Arnold! is an American animated television series created by Craig Bartlett that aired on Nickelodeon from October 7, 1996 to June 8, 2004. The show centers on a fourth grader named Arnold, who lives with his grandparents in an inner-city boarding house.

I've never really liked this one. But the jazz flavor fits the show so perfectly!

There are two of these theme songs. The first one was better.

I remember Rocko's Modern Life having two different sounding themes, but not Hey Arnold. - htoutlaws2012

The season 1 intro was WAY better in my opinion - Granton8ter05

Why isn't this higher on the list?

10 The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius is an American computer animated television series created by John A. Davis. It is the first spin-off to the 2001 film Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.

This theme song should absolutely be number one! The theme song has been stuck in my head for more than a decade! Awesome lyrics and the season 1 intro was absolutely super funny!

Also all the screaming in the season 1 intro is hilarious - Granton8ter05

Catchy, with good lyrics that sum up the show's premise.

Why is this masterpiece not number 1?

The Contenders

So CATCHY and chill!

12 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.

15 T.U.F.F Puppy
16 Rugrats Rugrats is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain for Nickelodeon.
