Top 10 21st Century Kids Shows
Modern spongebob is terrible.
Seasons 1-4 are the best.
Season 5: Started to get a little bad.
Season 6-7: You will pass out if you watch these episodes. They are just so bad it makes people not want to watch it anymore.
Season 8: Started to go a little better.
Season 9: Improved:
Season 10-11, It felt like people were going to go back to season 1.
SpongeBob is the best show on Nick. I have been watching it ever since the 1st episode. And I don't know what people are talking about when they say SpongeBob is annoying. His voice and laugh do not even phase me at all. My favorite character if Squidward because he is really funny and sarcastic.
As a kid I had no idea what was sometimes going on in the show but now I think that its something I would never want my kids to see... but if you ignore the last bit of episodes SpongeBob square pants was a good show.
Still the best show ever show on television, I am 18 and still I am a Hugh fan of the show. It is just awesome fantastic and the best show ever made
Gravity Falls is one of the few shows in the WORLD, let alone for children, that actually understands the concept of time traveling, foreshadowing and continuity. The fact that it also doesn't belittle children's intelligence by dumbing things down to the eighth degree and incorporates adult topics and jokes only makes it better. You say it's a rip-off of Scooby Doo? Does Scooby Doo have genuine sibling friendship? Does it have relatable characters with rich lives and backstories apart from each other? Does it have an awesome female lead whose traits are inheritantly feminin? Does it take place within a finite, believable timeframe? No? I didn't think so. So don't say it's a rip-off. Just. Don't.
Gravity Falls should be first on the list, no matter how long Spongebob or Fairly Oddparents has run.
Peace out! -mckee11223
SpongeBob SquarePants, really people? You would pick that idiot sponge over the ingenuity of Gravity Falls? Gravity Falls has intelligent yet flawed characters, a continuing plotline and plenty of action. I've got nothing against Phineas and Ferb, but that show has no continuity! Both Gravity Falls and Phineas and Ferb take place during a summer vacation, but while Phineas and Ferb's summer is seemingly endless with no plot linking the episodes, Gravity Falls's timeline actually progresses and you actually get the feel that Dipper and Mabel only have so long to achieve their summer goals.
SpongeBob!? REALLY!? This show is pure genius, mixing adult and kid humor, a GREAT mystery, and interesting, fun characters. This (or Avatar: The Last Airbender) should be #1.
When you first look at it, it may seem kinda weird, but it gets deeper if you dare to all the episodes, specifically Not What He Seems and Weirdmageddon 3.
How is this not number one? I mean honestly, what other show can give us such adult themes, while retaining the charm of a kid's show. Not to mention the brilliance brought throughout the show.
Most would say that having a fictional world in which a war brings every neighbouring country onto the brink of disasters a bad influence on kids. I'd say that this is very much the opposite! Children aren't going to stay young forever. Some kids live in war-torn countries. And when they watch shows like this they can relate. Who in their right mind would watch SpongeBob and "relate" to the character? It has a sense of reality in it that if someone told me that this was actually happening in and alternate universe somewhere -I'd probably not have second thoughts! So well done Nickelodeon, now all you have to do to make my life better is to adapt the graphic novel Amulet by Kazu Kibuishi and turn it into a 2d animated show. Then you'll be top dog!
Just the first season is enough for it to be no. 1 on this list much more all 3 great action, plot, humor, and twists. It blows the doors off of SpongeBob. The bare idea is so epic SpongeBob can't touch it. Plus it's the best show on Nickelodeon and SpongeBob is on Nickelodeon so there's another reason it's better. Combines epic manga style with classic humor
SpongeBob has absolutely nothing on this show. He is a very bad influence on kids. This show is inspiring, action packed, and has a great storyline. SpongeBob has no story line. After you see the first season of this show, its beats out SpongeBob like a pitbull vs a chihuahua.
Everything on this list is good exepect for Pokemon and Barney. Lets keep voting for this until it reaches Number 1!
Fairly Odd Parents is the best cartoon in the world.
You are all wrong
This aired in 100 countries I totally agree 2nd best show I've ever seen. 1st is Dance Moms!
Man I love this show it has comedy with a pinch of drama. Just the way I love it
TDI was the best. I just want another season like TDI.
I like this show more than anything!
This makes me inspired to use more often on my imaginations and believe that you can do anything. It is also funny and some are romantic.
The series is imaginative, fun and showcases something new every episode despite having a redundant story line.
I love actions like Perry the platypus do to Dr. Doofenshmritz. And cool inventions too that Phineas and Ferb invented.
- Aren't you a little too old to watch Phineas and Ferb?
- Yes. Yes, I am.
Regular Show is SO awesome! It has a good mix of a bit of adult humor, but more children excitement and humor for the kids to enjoy. the main characters being a blue jay and a raccoon, you can put pretty much everything in it (It's original motto was "Regular Show-its anything but"). It has got the classic touch of succeeding but then realizing you forgot something, or you fail and everything goes okay. Mordecai (the blue jay) and Rigby (the raccoon) are two slackers who get into large scenarios, and tend to get away with it from their angry, but sometimes cool boss, Benson. All the elements of this show make Regular Show the perfect T.V. series.
Regular show was the thing that got me through my middle school years. It's got this feel to it that makes it so fun to watch (it did decline in later seasons, though)
I used to like this show! But I don't know the new episodes aren't as good as the old ones...maybe I should watch it again and see.
I just hate it when they fight it when the 2 best friends fight bbut also cool.
This and Avatar: The Last Airbender both need to be at the top of the list. This show is amazinggg. It is the first Cartoon Network show to be created by a woman, it has one of the first LGBT couples shown on a "kids" show, and breaks countless other barriers. Great plot, action, humor, CHARACTERS *feels*, and everything in between.
Love love love this show.
Steven Universe, Gravity Falls, and Avatar the Last Airbender all need to be A LOT higher on this list! They all get really deep and not to mention hilarious
Did you know that Paradox was written as an inspiration from "Invader Zim". These 2 shows have so much in common.
How on earth is this so low?!? This show is absolutely beautiful!
One of Disney's few succeseses, and probably their only live one.
This show just made my childhood awesome..
My kids love this show
SUCH A GOOD SHOW! The music is inspiring and the story is magnificent! If you haven't seen the show, it's only ten episodes and it will change your life!
It's not just the best kids show not just the best T.V. show ever, but the best work of fiction I've ever seen ever
This should be number 1!
'I want to be the best, like no one ever was' who dosen't sing the theme song whenever it turns on, no other show has 900 episodes, 17 seasons, beast storyline and cool characters like this show. Kids these day don't know what they missed, them few 11-13 year olds and all the 14-26 year old know what actual good shows are.
2. Fairly odd parents
3. Lilo and Stitch
4. Suite life of Zac and Cody
5. That's so Raven
6. Jimmy Neutron
7. Wizards of Waverly Place
8. Dexters Labratory
9. Looney Tunes
You just have to agree.
The episode racing to a big event is my 2nd favorite T.V. show episode behind band geeks (Spongebob)
Pokemon is my favorite show right next to total drama island.
Love it! Kinda wish I had a jiggly puff. She is just adorable!
This show is so good that it should have never ended. I mean come on a boy that is smart and build weapons, now that's a show I will always watch
I am still pissed at Nick for cancelling it... Very underrated.
One of the best Cartoon Network shows ever made!
Funny, and sweet
How is this not in the top ten? And where is Zim? I must have ZIM!
I loved this show, so great way better than the stupid chibi style one. Which, by the way, is so gr I hate it sooo much it's a total change.
I TOTALLY AGREE! I have, however seen some negative reviews saying it's dumb because it's a kids shows. Screw people who think that, the only bad thing about this show is the horrible flash animation that started recently. BUT STILL, IT RULES!
What's with the Jamaican music?
One of the BEST shows Cartoon Network had to offer!
