Top 10 Stop Motion TV Shows of All Time

Sometimes animation can be very unique, and it doesn't half to be in 2D, or 3D. Instead why don't we look back at some of the greatest Stop Motion (also known as Claymation) shows that have seen from around the world.

The Top Ten

1 Robot Chicken Robot Chicken Robot Chicken is an American stop motion sketch comedy television series, created and executive produced by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich along with co-head writers Douglas Goldstein and Tom Root for Adult Swim.

It's alive!

Yes, predictably Robot Chicken is not only one that most people have at least heard of, but it also one of the best shows on Adult Swim still on today. Seth Green has a thing for its long lasting appeal that may match other adult primetime shows to come. - htoutlaws2012

I watched this ever since it first came and after so many years it still hasn't lost its hilarity - Mcgillacuddy

Great show (don't tell my parents I watch it) - 445956

2 Celebrity Deathmatch Celebrity Deathmatch

A true golden era cartoon by MTV that hit hard with its fans back when it was still had fans left before nowadays nobody cares about the channel it did have two shows of quality left. Celebrity Deathmatch was the last great cartoon to come out of that Sushi tree that was an excellent choice to have as its own show. Many fans wanna see it return once again, but nothing is known for sure if that will take place in the near future. - htoutlaws2012

I love this show nothing like watching celebrities beating each other up to the death. - egnomac

3 Wallace & Gromit Wallace & Gromit Wallace and Gromit is a American-British clay animation comedy series created by Nick Park of Aardman Animations.

Great show - iliekpiez

I can't believe I forgot this show actually was a T.V. show, yeah this definitely deserves to be in the top 5 the definition of stop motion animation. - htoutlaws2012

4 Pingu Pingu Pingu is the main character of the TV show of the same name and Pingu in the City. He was created by Swiss filmmaker Otmar Gutmann in 1986.

Both for kids and adults - iliekpiez

Can you believe this lasted 20 years... this 80's classic was around for a long time until 2006 that's pretty impressive to me. - htoutlaws2012

5 Action League Now! Action League Now!

Pretty weird, and off the wall compared to most of the shows on this list, but still a solid show that spawned from KaBlam, and the first one I ever saw of this animation style. - htoutlaws2012

6 Shaun the Sheep Shaun the Sheep Shaun the Sheep is a British stop-motion animated television series, a spin-off of the Wallace and Gromit franchise.

Once Wallace and Gromit experience had ended... shortly afterwards they came up with an idea to have a show about a sheep, and you could tell it had that britishness to it. - htoutlaws2012

My childhood - Gangem

7 Bob the Builder Bob the Builder Bob the Builder is a British children's animated television show created by Keith Chapman. In the original series, Bob appears in a stop motion animated programme as a building contractor, specialising in masonry, along with his colleague Wendy, various neighbours and friends, and their gang of anthropomorphised more.

My childhood show, and I still love it! - darthvadern

Theme song still bops - cjWriter1997

I know what you're thinking what is a children's show aimed for that 1-5 range. You can't help, but realize when you see joke memes of this Bob sticks out in you're mind like it or not. - htoutlaws2012

8 The PJs The PJs The PJs is an American stop-motion animated black sitcom, created by Eddie Murphy, Larry Wilmore, and Steve Tompkins.

If you remember right when the late 90's had a ton of so so shows that debuted well PJs was actually a heavily underrated show that ended up getting picked up reruns from Adult Swim, and realized how forgotten the series was sure it was not that bad since it was overshadowed by King of the Hill. Probably one of the last Eddie Murphy works that was still top notch. - htoutlaws2012

9 Gumby Gumby

Still holds up - iliekpiez

The original!

10 The Moomins (1977) The Moomins (1977) The Moomins is a stop motion animated children's television series based on the Tove Jansson's Moomin series of books which was produced by Se-ma-for and Jupiter Film between 1977 and 1982 for Polish, Austrian and German television.

This version of the Moomins was made in Europe, and it was the only one that was in this claymation style one of the earliest to be noticed. While I never really had interest in myself... it has a cult following with the fans. - htoutlaws2012

The Contenders

11 Angry Kid Angry Kid

Granted its not that long of a series with the duration maximum of a minute. It does create nightmare fuel based on the main characters appearance unintentional... perhaps, but this show has been surfaced from different platforms from BBC, MTV, and even YouTube. It lasted a long time at least. - htoutlaws2012

12 Titan Maximum Titan Maximum

It was only on for 9 episodes, but in that came a show that maybe could of been given another season at least because I initially thought it would suck, but I was wrong for something he tried to leaning a little ''Aniclay'' if you will type of approach. - htoutlaws2012

13 Thomas & Friends Thomas & Friends Thomas & Friends is a British children's television series. In the United Kingdom, it had its first broadcast on the ITV network in Great Britain in 1984.

A well thought, pleasant show for both kids and adults. This was my childhood.

An instant classic with fun adventures and new things every episode.

14 Bump in the Night Bump in the Night
15 The Amazing Adventures of Morph
