Also do not add shows from other channels than the ones that I mentioned

5 Gravity Falls Gravity Falls Gravity Falls is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation that first aired on Disney Channel, and then on Disney XD from June 15, 2012 to February 15, 2016. The series follows the adventures of Dipper Pines and his twin sister Mabel in the fictional town of Gravity more.

Was a really good show. Had lots of spark and potential in it and was mysterious and spooky enough to grab the viewers attention, as well as throw in some laughs and adult jokes. Sadly, good things don't last forever, and it ended. But it still had one of the best endings to a T.V. show of all time. Never going to forget this one.

Ah man I should've voted for Gravity Falls instead but I still think that The Loud House is good. - Anonymousxcxc

It wasn't cancelled it ended at the end of summer.

Should have more seasons

7 Veggietales Veggietales VeggieTales is an American series of direct-to-video children's computer animated films created by Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki featuring antropomorphic fruits and vegetables in stories conveying moral themes based on Christianity

Ahaha I love this show so much. It's the single best show on TBN, and it teaches you good lessons about the Bible. The silly songs are awesome and there are funny pop culture references. it's better than Auto B. Bad. - cartoonfan101

It was created by Jean-François Tosti, David Alaux, Eric Tosti and produced by TAT Productions and Master Films. The series is about Maurice, a penguin that thinks more.

One of the best Sprout shows, right up there with Doozers, Maya the Bee, Floogals (sort of), Nina's World (sort of), and Berenstain Bears. Everything else is mediocre or just sucks. This show has action and funny moments, and plot, unlike Super Wings. - cartoonfan101

This, Doozers, Floogals, and Nina's world is good. Everything else is horrible, like, Super Wings, and Dumb Dumb, Twerp, and LAME. Also, I don't care for Maya the Bee.

I kind-of like this show. The only thing I can't stand is Bunga. I want to rip Bunga's head off and drown his already decapitated body in a river of BLOOD! - TailchaserFan10

I find this show good and underrated - Neonco31

It's the best show on Disney junior. Its also very mature for a T.V.-Yshow.

The Contenders

14 Star vs. the Forces of Evil Star vs. the Forces of Evil Star vs. the Forces of Evil is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation.

A show that's worthy being in Disney, one of the best 2010s cartoon ever made, and it keeps improving every season.

One of the most underrated shows ever.

15 Pokémon: Sun and Moon

In Canada, it is broadcast on Treehouse TV. The literacy series takes place in a colorful world resembling that of inside a fairytale, more.

I don't understand why everyone hates this show. It's way better than WordWorld. It teaches good literacy and has funny jokes for the parents.

I bet you all noticed I haven't put a Disney Junior show on here yet. Well I will soon, because most of the shows on DJ are mediocre or just plain bad. - cartoonfan101
