Top Ten Best Cartoons

The Top Ten
1 SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator the late Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 20 years, and is beginning its 12th season. ...read more.

It's sad that the creator of SBSP died, but that's okay, it's airing on Nickelodeon, but here's why SBSP is the best cartoon in my opinion.
1. Most of the characters are dumb and funny, and 20% are wise and smart, but mostly I like dumb characters, they make me laugh good.
2. I like how this cartoon resists today too, it's cool that it's airing for 19 years.

That's all
Like who doesn't love SBSP Show? It's so funny and cool, I would stay all night awaken watching spongebob.

Hope this explains why this is the best cartoon, PEACE OUT!

This is byfar the best cartoon in the whole UNIVERSE! I love you SpongeBob SquarePants! You have the best show in the whole world! You're my NUMBER 1 favorite character! You are awesome, funny, lovable and you always have a great sense of humor! I really wish I could meet Tom Kenny one day. I love Squidward because he loves art and music (hey, so do I! I love drawing and playing guitar) I love Sandy because she's nice and smart and tough. I just have one question about Sandy. Is she black?
I love Patrick because 50% of the time he's dumb and the other times he's smart and wise.
I love Pearl because she's sassy at times and a high schooler.
I love Plankton and Karen because they have a good relationship and Plankton's smart like Sandy and he always comes up with clever insults.
I love Larry because he's muscular and strong.
I love Ms. Puff because she's a great instructor.
I really like Mr. Krabs because he's funny and has this HUGE obsession with money. That's great! ...more

This is an AMAZING cartoon. SpongeBob began in 1999. It didn't get major success until season 2. Season 3 had SpongeBob it to new heights, although a hiatus was going on in 2003 during this season due to the movie being made. After the movie things went a little down hill. Season 4 and 5 were still pretty good, but season 6 and 7 were pretty bad. But season 8 brought back some of the old humor and season 9 so far is even better than season 8. Season 10 is coming next year and is supposed to be the longest and best SpongeBob season ever! There's a new movie coming next year and hopefully SpongeBob will be as good as the first 3 seasons!

I can kind of see how people like the naive main character, Spongebob, the stupid star Patrick, and all the unnecessarily irritating side characters such as Sandy and Squidward, but I personally hate this show, mainly because of the storylines and the characters’ voices. If I had to choose between Spongebob and Bart Simpson going to my school, I’d choose Bart. I also hate the Simpsons, so saying that is a lot.
Also a FRICKING PINEAPPLE is his house? That’ll get moldy, probably already disintegrated in the 21 years this retarded show has been running. There are so many better shows too! Gravity Falls, My Hero Academia, Ducktales, and a score of others.
The rant has ended.

2 The Simpsons The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening that originally started on April 19, 1987 as shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show. It got its own series on December 17, 1989 and is still running as of 2020, making it the longest running animated sitcom. It is about a man named Homer ...read more.

Yes, I have been watching them since I was 5 or 6. If you think that's too young to watch, well I couldn't understand any dirty jokes until now, and it's certainly more family-friendly than other adult-oriented cartoons. I love Hank Azaria's characters the best, and I can do a really good impression of Wiggum, Dr. Nick, Snake, and Apu. I have been practicing for a while.

My love for the Simpsons just keeps growing with each passing day. This show’s first ten seasons were amazing and brilliantly written. If I could I would go back in time to dec 17 1989 and go through high school with it. I even fantasize what that life would be like. It’s time for this show to end but I will always love it. From the lovable characters to the hilarious jokes.

Are you kidding me? Spongebob is better than this? I like spongebob don't get me wrong... but the Simpsons has aired longer than this and the plot for each episode is very interesting with a bunch of funny characters. This is why I think The Simpsons should be #1.

Simpsons, Tom and Jerry, Looney Tunes, The Flinstones, Scooby Doo and Batman are the best cartoons ever made. Kids these days have no idea what a real cartoon is with their Steven Universe and Uncle Grandpa and Clarence trash.

3 Looney Tunes Looney Tunes is an American animated series of comedy short films produced by Warner Bros. from 1930 to 1969 during the golden age of American animation, alongside its sister series Merrie Melodies.

Definitely the funniest Looney Tunes related show to come out since the 90s, making it a point to stay true to the originals. And it's definitely the best thing Pete Browngardt's ever produced.

While Elmer and Yosemite Sam losing their guns is a little disappointing, Animaniacs or TTA didn't have much gun violence but were hilarious nonetheless, so I can tell this show doesn't need it either.

This is the great-grandfather of animated comedies, Mickey Mouse was charming, but not that funny until Donald came along (5 years after Bosko and 4 years after Foxy).

Looney Tunes should be number one. Not only were the characters well-drawn, but the writing of the dialog so witty and creative. Plus, incorporating classical music was genius.

I took my kids to Symphony Hall in Chicago to see Bugs Bunny on Broadway. Just thinking about the live orchestra playing with perfect precision to those classic cartoons gives me chills. That performance had a profound impact on my five-year-old daughter who had never seen musical notes in her life. When we got home she drew out the notes she remembered seeing when they performed "Little Brown Jug" I recommend watching the clip for those who have never seen it.

All you people know is daffy and bugs bunny don't you know about bosko and beans and buddy and the censored 11 (you probably don't). The old looney tunes was better than the new ones there wasnt no bugs bunny no tweety no new characters you know. Bosko was the first star then Buddy, Beans, Porky, and then BUGS. And how can you like bugs he made native americans, asian people and black people look like fools. But otherwise the cartoon is excellent even with the macine guns, tobacco, dynamite sticks exploding, and the blackface crap.

4 South Park South Park is an American adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network. The show is about four boys, who are Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick, and their adventures in South Park, Colorado.

Characters of South Park.

Kyle: Very interesting.

Stan: Charming at times, but mostly bland.

Cartman: The funniest character ever.

Kenny: Very funny.

Butters: THE CUTEST THING EVER! I WANT TO HUG HIM! He can be a little dark at times, but his different personalities are very cute to watch.

Randy: A smarter, kinder, funnier and better Peter Griffin without the fat.

Gerald: I don't find him a great character, but he is okay.

Mrs Marsh: Bland.

Kyle's Mom: Bland.

Cartman's Mom: A bad parent for not grounding Cartman.

Chef: Funny.

Mr Garrison: Used to be funny, but now is propaganda against Republicans.

Mr Mackey: Bland.

Big Gay Al: Very nice despite him being gay.

And so many more characters.

Characters: 9/10

Animation: 8/10

Voice Acting: 9/10

Humor: 10/10

Plot: 10/10

South Park: 10/10

Why? This cartoon is pure brilliance. It has ...more

I truly enjoy South Park, Though my name says "Yin Yang Yo" in it... My Favorite character In south park, is Kenny McCormick. Why? Because, shouldn't we all feel bad for him of when he gets killed (ex, Anacid tablets, Sawed in Half, Etc.). My least favorite character is Eric Cartman. The reason why is, he is the most evil kid in south park (Along with Damien) He killed Scott Tenorman's Mother And Father (So Scott's Father is Possibly Cartman's Dad, Which he well not he killed them, but his Dad was killed) and Scott ate them in the chili, Insults Kyle Broflovski By calling him "Jew" though he is Jewish. And Making Fun of Kenny of when he gets killed.

My passion and love for this show will never end. Sure, it's crass, it's crude, and it's pretty over the top, but you can never judge something by its surface. Unlike something like Mr.Pickles ( Not trying to offend fans ), there's a really positive spirit behind that shocking exterior. These messages leave you thinking, but also laughing! Because, readers, they're pointing out everything wrong with society! It makes you realize what has become of the world, and how you can try to fix it. A bonus is, maybe this is my own bias, but I love this art style. The characters are perfect, the voice acting cracks me up, and the writing is unbelievably sharp! It can be low-brow, but I adore this show. I highly recommend every 13+ to watch this warm, fuzzy, paper masterpiece. Thank you, Matt Stone and Trey Parker.

I have been a fan since just before my 13th birthday (2011) while many others have been fans since the beginning (1997). I prefer characters like Kyle and Wendy while the majority enjoys characters like Cartman, Randy and Butters. I somewhat enjoy the episode to episode continuity as of late while South Park seems to have lost viewers in the last couple years because of it. I'll admit that with my own opinions, I feel a bit disappointed. But no matter what happens within the show itself and the fandom, I will remain a loyal viewer up to the series finale.

5 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 ...read more.

Nothing, and I mean nothing, is quite like gravity falls. When I first came across it I was like this is just another garbage Disney show,and then I watched it...and I instantly fell in love. I ador the characters, the pines twins are adorable and Bill and Stan make me laugh every time. I wish Alex Hirsch would have made more but he wanted to,preserve how good it was.

A majestic, weird, work of art. I loved the apocalypse episodes at the end, and it was very well-told. Every character had a story and flaw, and every adventure was well thought out and important to the plot.

The characters are three dimensional, there's good mysteries, and there are no toilet jokes at all. Probably not suitable for younger children, because it is dark at times, but it is very well written and appeals to preteens, teens, and even some adults. There are also no stereotypes, laugh tracks, or even any fashion obsessed teenage main characters like in other Disney shows. The art style is also very original, and so is the theme song. Even the cast are very charismatic, like Kristen Schaal, Jason Ritter-son of John Ritter- and many guest stars, such as John Oliver, John DiMaggio, and Patton Oswalt. This is definitely unlike any other cartoon I've ever seen.

I don't agree on the art style part. Lot's of cartoons these days use similar art styles and believe me. Gravity Falls was not the first cartoon to use it. Previous shows like Steven Universe and Gumball have similar art styles

Why is this show not higher on the list? This isn't a dump cartoon for kids, this is a show about characters and a big main plot with the mystery element. I watched this show since the beginning, started to think it was just a funnu cartoon. But after the season 1 finale, I realised that there was a big main plot and big secrets hidden throughout the episodes. I watched theories about Gravity Falls on YouTube like the twin brother theory and really got into it. Then I watched season 2, which has a bigger focus on the main plot, and we got more answers. The episode "Not what he seems" blew my mind and showed how good a episode could be. The show went on to the epic finale, that I watched yesterday. It shows the main character conflict and how much continuity Gravity Falls has. Alex did a great job with the show, even if this show wasn't that long. It has a really serious plot and deserve a better placement on the list. I think that most cartoon, like Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry (I ...more

SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS BEAT THIS?! Think clearly guys! This show is a total MASTERPIECE. Interesting characters, beautiful romances, plot twists, humor, and sorrow. I almost cried in the finale episode!

Here are the characters that make the show amazing:

Aang: the kindhearted but powerful protagonist

Katara: sweet and strong female lead

Sokka: sarcastic by sometimes soft warrior

Zuko: the redeemed character who is emotionally conflicted and sometimes dark

Iroh: the old, wise dude who is a total boss

Toph: sassy and kickbutt blind girl

Azula: one of the bad guys who descends into mental illness

I’m embarrassed to say it but I actually cried at the ending of this show a lot! I barley ever cry in any movies, or TV shows. But the characters are just so beautifully crafted and written! This show holds one of the best redemption arcs in animation history, and is perfect for all ages. Not a single character is poorly written, and the plot is well drawn out and played. Each episode develops a character one way or another, and this show will most likely make you fall in love! (Lots of emotional, heart-filled moments.) This show reminds me of the good early 2000s where creates were beginning to create beautiful atmospheres with their ideas. My favorite characters are: Zuko, Sokka, Katara, and Suki! Defiantly people, even if this show does not look like your type, (I thought it wasn’t for me either,) I would still defiantly recommend giving it a try and a watch!

Deserves to be number 1 without a doubt. The world building in this show is second to none. The characters are very well done with their growth and changes. The lessons taught are important for kids and adults. You could make a book full of inspirational Iroh quotes. Avatar a wonderful story of an epic adventure in a fantastic world with amazing characters. It is the best cartoon ever made.

Amazing cartoon. Deserves to be Number 1. The in-depth storyline and the attachments to the characters and the characters themselves and the artwork, everything is just so good about this series. It is hands down the best animated series of all time. Change my mind.

7 Tom and Jerry Tom and Jerry is an American animated series of comedy short films created in 1940 by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. Best known for its 161 theatrical short films by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the series centers on a rivalry between the title characters Tom, a cat, and Jerry, a mouse. Many shorts also ...read more.

Just the funniest thing ever. Simple laughs, making you hooked to the show. You'll watch it for hours and hours, until you realise its just a bunch of sounds and moving pictures. Even after realising it is just drawings, you continue to fall into the deep hole of TOM AND JERRY.
You are never too old or too young for Tom and Jerry.

I love this show so much! this is my first favorite show EVER! This is the best show every made. It's better than all the shows except Spongebob

omg yes! my No.1 show! the first I saw this I thought "woah goooood show cool" this is an amazing show! I hope they add it back! yes jerry may be crazy but that's the whole point! however I do hate spike he's just a dog who wants to kill tom all the time even when he didn't do anything! however I still put this on No.1 because all of the characters and its realistic (besides the cartoon lol) because not much talking going on and its amazing watch this show! :)

Classics... I used to watch this cartoon insanely when I was little, I appreciate the fact it lives. Although there’s no script it’s funny to watch the chase scenes!

8 Regular Show Regular Show is an American animated television series created by J. G. Quintel for Cartoon Network that premiered on September 6, 2010. The series revolves around the lives of two friends, a blue jay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby—both employed as groundskeepers at a local park.

Another show that kicked off this decade. This cartoon was the very FIRST that I grew up with. It takes mundane situations and makes them surreal and zany yet fun. However, that formula has been fairly overused, but when you have a variety of unique characters it can still make the show interesting. The character's misadventures and stories do get touching and amazingly funny at satire, but some can also be redundant with pointless filler. But despite its flaws, Regular Show had a great run and I will cherish it throughout my adulthood forever.

Cartoon Network classics were amazing, however this show blew all of the people away. The show named Regular Show. It became the most popular Cartoon Network cartoon. Everyone loved it, because of the awesome humor, cool lines, and amazing action. Even the characters were amazing. More than 12,000 people loved the show so much. Reason being is that comedy is one of the most popular genres worldwide. The next cartoon isn't from Cartoon Network, but on FOX.

It is the smooth delivery and character development that makes this show enjoyable to watch over all others. While with each new episode most shows seem to reset situations or continue a story line, Regular Show implements scenarios that end in each episode, but still will carry weight later on in the next. We watch as these experiences begin to weigh the choices of the characters and make them all the more enjoyable. Well done.

Regular Show is such a refreshing and entertaining cartoon. It's very consistent with good episodes and doesn't have a lot of bad ones. Too underrated and in my opinion, it's better than most modern cartoons with the exception of Steven Universe. I like most of the characters because the all have different personalities to make the show more likable. I recommend this awesome cartoon for anyone because it's something people can watch at all ages.

9 Adventure Time Adventure Time is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network. The series follows the adventures of a boy named Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio)—a dog with the magical power to change shape ...read more.

Even though I think that this show is weird at times, it still had heartwarming moments (especially with Marceline and Simon), and all in all the plot was great.

Oh it disappoints me to see such a great show not in the top 10. I know why this is so low. The people who say "it's to random and colorful. Pen Ward was stoned when he wrote it overlook it and vote for something else. That would be understandable if you never seen the show and based all thoughts of it off of the 2 minutes you've seen. And it's not called "stoned" it is a little something called creativity. If you don't know why this show has such a large adult fanbase, I'll give you the gist. This show is quotable, creative, has likable characters, is funny, clever and a big shocker for the people whom I've described earlier, it is not just "random to be random". If you were to watch it the randomness is explained, and not through huge reveals, just some bits and pieces of continuity slowly revealing the story's history. That's right. It is not a cartoon that just has one weird episode and starts over the next. There is an ever unfolding history that gets you to keep watching. It is, ...more

Adventure time is the most sophisticated (in a good way) and amazing cartoon ever presented. Each person has a past which becomes a legend. This show deserves to be number 1. The protagonist, Finn, goes through every possible emotional condition a child or teen can face.That's why it's so popular among teens and adults too. The ending was the most emotionally strong one I have ever seen. Adventure time will always be the main building block of my childhood. I could have written tonnes more, but I know adventure time fans understand me.

Do you like adventures like not Dora, not Pokemon, not even Kung Fu Panda. This one show blew everyone away. The name is Adventure Time with Finn and Jake, or Adventure Time for short. The cartoon was crowned the number 1 Cartoon Network show worldwide. Adventure Time was so funny, it has a lot of adventures. The show is almost the equivalent to the Super Mario Bros. , Because they both have kingdoms, they both save princesses, and they both have sports to play. Everyone loved Adventure Time, because it was a complete success, it was the best cartoon over the world. About 28,000-30,000 people loved the show. However it maybe the number 1 cartoon on Cartoon Network worldwide, but it's still not the number 1 cartoon worldwide alone. As we save the best for last.

10 Batman: The Animated Series Batman: The Animated Series is an American animated television series based on the DC Comics superhero Batman.

The cartoon that made me a Batman fan in the first place and was a huge part of my childhood! While it is aimed at kids (like most cartoons are), it doesn't dumb itself down for the audience, which makes it very enjoyable for adult viewers as well. Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill are iconic in their roles as the Batman and the Joker, and serve as the definitive versions of the characters for me. If you even have the slightest interest in the Batman character and haven't seen this show yet then I highly recommend that you check it out.

The dynamic storytelling and unique film noir style is only matched by the high caliber action scenes and unforgettable cast of characters. This show redefined batman. The Joker's insane maniacal schemes, the riddlers uncanny intellect, Poison ivy's charms and wiles, Two-Face's juxtaposition and character development, these are only matched by the Strong harshness of a kind caring batman who knows what it is like to "have a bad day". Alfred's dry wit and Commissioner Gordon's determination and inclusion as part of the Bat-family really makes this show complete. Adults, children and teens may watch this show and each enjoy it on different levels. It is everything a cartoon should be.

Hell yeah! This is my favorite cartoon of all time, not just due to my love of Batman, but because of its amazing storytelling skills, dark tone, powerful themes, stellar voice-acting, and game changing animation. The characters immerse you in a dark and surreal world, with intense, gritty developments happening all the time. They keep you invested in this series until the very last moment, when everything changes. Every voice actor was a perfect fit for their character, like Kevin Conroy as Batman, Mark Hamill as Joker, Bob Hastings as Jim Gordon, etc (and it made most of them famous too! ). Also, this cartoon stands out as an old show who's animation still rivals that of conglomerates like Pixar or DreamWorks. This cartoon changed the way we look at animation as a whole. This cartoon took true effort and emotion to make, and would have been another random Batman cartoon without it. This show is, without a doubt, the best cartoon of all time.

Kevin Conroy's stellar performance, mixed in with the artwork and animation, really made us believe in a Batman, a real Batman. One who fought evil, and was untainted. A hero able to stare into the worst of humanity and seek its redemption. Which other hero or series was able to give deep and meaningful's through a twenty minute cartoon. The insanity and evil of the Joker, the sad story of Mr Freeze the cast of unusual villains (Kyodai Ken, Lyle Bolton, and Doll-Face, I'm looking at you), the episodes without supervillians, and the uniqueness of every episode makes this the greatest animated series of all time. The episodes "Second Chance", "His Silicon Soul", "Perchance to Dream", "Two-Face (Parts 1 & 2)", "Heart of Ice", "Over the Edge", "Mad Love" and "I Am The Night" are just a few of the many episodes which redefined Batman and his villains showing them to be more human than ever.

11 Steven Universe Steven Universe is an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network. The show's based around a young boy by the name of Steven Universe, who is a hybrid of a gem and a human. He lives with his gem friends, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl.

I liked the idea of different 'Gems' using superpowers and mixed together and stuff, and each mix always makes me think about what the two Gems that mixed have in common. Like Smoky Quartz has Steven and Amythest's childlike qualities, along with curly hair and black-purple color.

I love how each character is so different and unique. Garnet being LGBT. Pearl mourning the loss of a loved one. The messages that this show sends are genius and deep. The songs WOW are they good! It does have some flaws like some bad characters and the occasional bad episode. But they are completely overshadowed by the beauty The humor can appeal to anyone. I love the concept of fusion leading into more great characters. And they are very relatable. They reveals can make the internet self-destruct. It is a 10/10 masterpiece. Just stay away from the fan base

Steven Universe might look like another run of the mill, bland cartoon where the perfect, invincible Gems are always happy and there's sunshine and rainbows The End... At first glance. Don't judge a book by its cover. Steven Universe is a wonderfully thought out show. It deals with problems such as (but not limited to) growing up and losing a loved one; all in a gentle manner that's appropriate for kids and adults alike. It shows that anyone can be strong, in their own ways. And despite Steven Universe's darker backstory, it still manages to be VERY funny. If you haven't given this show a try, please give it a chance.

This show SAVED my childhood. The characters were everything and the plot twists made it so much more interesting. When it ended I cried for hours. And the music is amazing too.

12 Ed, Edd n Eddy Ed, Edd n Eddy is a Canadian-American animated comedy television series created by Danny Antonucci for Cartoon Network, and the sixth of the network's Cartoon Cartoons. The series revolves around three preteen boys: Ed, Edd "Double D," and Eddy—collectively known as "the Eds"—who live in a suburban ...read more.

South park, SpongeBob, samurai jack, courage the cowardly dog, and this and you got yourself the best era for cartoons, the 90s! As a 90s kid I had to give it to this show because of how much as a kid you could relate to this show. Going out and playing with your friends and getting into trouble in your neighborhood was part of being a kid. Unless you're a late 2000s kid then this show won't relate to staying inside all day playing Minecraft and watching adventure time while being on your 700 dollar iPhone with no way of interacting with other people other than Facebook and twitting them ha! Truly sad, but give them like 10 to 15 years and they will see their kids become anti social and hermits and will see what the 90s kids were talking about. I imagine the year 2030 to look a lot like the fatass people in wall e.

This is one of the best Cartoon Network shows, by far. Easy choice. I really relate to Ed, being so derpy and loving buttered toast. Edd is also really funny, and has my favorite voice actor. Eddy is a funny character that has funny schemes, but he can get really mean and annoying every once and a while, and so can Edd. Ed was the one I never didn't like. Rolf, Jonny 2x4, Nazz, Kevin, Jimmy, Sarah, even the Kankers were really fun to watch. Plots and humor were top notch, and that makes it really awesome. Danny Antonucci must be a genius!...MeoMeo

I loved this show as a kid and really missed it when the show ended. I loved every episode, whether it was the ed's getting the tar beaten out of them by farm boy, Ralph. Or the three boys scamming the block with wacky ideas to buy jaw breakers. I'll never forget this great show with its unique animation style, and u memorable characters, Like PLANK!

This series finale, Ed Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show was just as perfect as how you may think the ending to Avatar: The Last Airbender was. It had a great balance of drama, comedy, suspense and action. Plus: the design for Eddy's brother was perfect. I can clearly tell that that's Eddy's brother and he looks cool.

13 Futurama Futurama is an American animated science fiction sitcom created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

This show is all around hilarious. It has the awkward working situations and romances of The Office and Parks and Rec, the surreal adventures of rick and morty, and the tone of the Simpsons. Mix all of that in with with some of the greatest characters in cartoon history (I.e. Bender, Zoidberg) and you've got the greatest cartoon ever. Sure, Looney Toons is awesome, but come on, compared to nudist scammers that want to rob the world of everything valuable by getting bender to go back in time and steal them using a code that breaks the universe is just plain hilarious.

This is one of my favorite cartoons I've ever watched. Yeah, there are some tiny flaws, but this cartoon is still pretty decent. Characters are distinct, jokes aren't filler, and the show's complexity is getter better and better. What I don't like about this show is all of the romance involved.

Wow, there is no comparison to this show! It's surreal story-lines, hilarious jokes, and crude but likable characters, make for the greatest cartoon of all time. It's more of an adult show, but it isn't super inappropriate so kids around age ten or eleven can still watch and enjoy it. Hands down, my favorite cartoon ever.

This show is like space age Simpsons, plus except the characters are unique, the setting is hilarious, the plot lines demonstrate mastery in storytelling, and it has so many 1 liners and quotable scenes that it's just about my favorite cartoon ever. Real shame that it got cancelled.

14 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.

Why isn't this higher?

This has to be one of the most creative shows of all time at it also features great 3D animation for something that has been made in 2001. The jokes were also good and the voice acting is 10/10

It's a shame it got canceled so early. I know many shows but as far as I know nothing I've seen is quite like Invader Zim. Not even Kid vs Kat, a show I grew up with (Kid vs Kat ripped off Invader Zim) I don't think there will ever be a show to have the same energy this one has.

Not really suitable for little kids unless they like dark stuff but I think it's good for teenagers and adults.

This show is a good one.

It is unique in how it is darker than many other cartoons. Like in the dark harvest, in which Zim takes humans organs in an attempt to keep his secret of being an alien safe.

It has some amazing characters!

Zim, as stated before, is an alien. He is kind if incompetent in many fields, and rather egotistical. But, he also has positive traits, being incredibly good with technology.

Gir is a defective robot that has made his way into the hearts of many who watch the show. He is a chaotic bot who is much like a child. Loud, but loveable.

Dib, a kid who (tries) to persue the paranormal. Also the only who seems to able to tell that Zim is an alien. Smarter than the rest of his race, but has some of the worst luck.

Another thing!
This. Cartoons. Humor.

If you like dark humor, this is a show that delivers. Weather it be about life, or someone being sent to their doom. There are better examples but that's what I could ...more

An amazing show that for some reason just couldn't stay on television. Fans brought it back a few years later, in 2006, and brought back reruns on nicktoons a few years after they stopped showing those. Definitely needs more episodes, because although I love it, seeing the same episodes over and over gets old really fast. All in all, its one of the greats in the era which I consider to have come out with the highest concentration of hilarious and edgy cartoons, 97-03. Back when SpongeBob had its original writers, as well. If the creator and the writers hadn't left after the movie, I doubt SpongeBob would get any of the flack it's gotten these past few years; or if they just ended it after the movie, it would've easily been the best cartoon of all time, even surpassing this one.

Actually, I think the movie would've been a good stopping point for the series. There've been a few good episodes after 2004, but EVERY episode before the movie was a classic. Invader zim ending was kind ...more

This show is one of the best T.V. shows I've ever seen, along with SpongeBob, Gravity Falls, and Steven Universe. Infact, this might me my favorite show out of all of them. A show about an alien that it's own race doesn't like with a stupid robot who likes waffles, an obvious descise, and ONE person who knows he's an alien, it's comedy gold! Plus, the plots are hilarious. They made a guy eating waffles for 11 minutes funny. Any show that can do that is amazing. Zim is a hilarious villain that we end up rooting for, Dib makes you laugh ever time his plans fail, Gaz is... Well, Gaz, and GIR is the cutest and dumbest thing ever, witch is amazing. I wish this show was still on the air because it was AMAZING! You get stuff like Hey Arnold!, Rugrats, SpongeBob, and all of the sudden you have a show that nails dark humor. Every time it managed to get it right. They made going back in time and slowly killing someone funny because it was with rubber pigs. This show is a brilliant work of art ...more

15 Teen Titans Teen Titans is an American animated television series created by Glen Murakami, based on the DC Comics characters of the same name.

A lot of shows on this list are amazing cartoons. Ed Edd n Eddy, Futurama, Courage, Scooby Doo, and so many others defined my childhood. However, this one is just something else. The characters were exciting, each with their own personality that developed throughout the course of the show's entire run. GO is decent and I'm glad the newer generations can have their own Teen Titans. But nothing will compare to the specific flaws and skills of each of these characters and the lessons they taught me

By far the most incredible show ever made. As I get older, I'm introduced to more and more shows. But Teen Titans will always remain my favorite. There's noting like that first show you become obsessed with when you're young- when no show could ever be the same. I love how you can really connect with the characters. Robin and Starfire were always my favorites. The GO version is completely different, and is shown for different reasons. Sometimes I watch it. Not just for a good laugh, but also for something more. I watch the show to look for clues hinting back to the original. In hopes of Robin and Starfire's relationship. I feel like maybe the creators don't show this stuff in hopes we will keep watching and waiting. It was very clever of them. But still the original will always have a special place in my heart. That's who the titans really are to me. That was my childhood. So I'll keep waiting, and hoping. This cartoon was too good. Who knows, maybe Season 6 will come some day!

I like how it includes a lot of characters and handles it well. I dislike the remake of this show but if it appeals to children then whatever.

Pokemon and Teen Titans are the best cartoons ever Pokemon is funny and cool and Teen Titans is DC NATION; they don't follow the comics. Teen Titans does follow the comics teen titans go just messes everything up they don't follow the comics all teen titans go is is just corny jokes and immaturity they give bad advice and all they are a disgrace to DC Teen Titans is truly part of DC they are promoting it while teen titans go is making it look bad Pokemon AND TEEN TTIANS ARE THE BEST CARTOONS EVER May the Grace of Our Lord Jesus be with ALL

16 The Amazing World of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball is a British-Australian-German-American-Irish children's animated television series created by Ben Bocquelet for Cartoon Network.

An absolute work of art. I loved every second of it, and every joke was smart and well thought. Sometimes I would go on laughing forever. Every plot if either cute, adventure-ish, or absolutely hilarious. Gumball is a great character because he is just SO relatable, and he has his flaws. Darwin is nice, but sometimes too nice, and that's his flaw. Anais's smart remarks are funny, Richard's jokes are comedy gold, and Nicole is one of the funniest characters with her anger and all. I love Gumball and Penny, especially in 'The Shell', and each character has made at least one joke that's made me laugh, and all in all it's just beautiful.

Why on earth is this not in the top ten. Sure it's like War of the great cartoons but everything it does is awesome. The theme the plots the characters (especially Gumball, Darwin, Penny and Patrick) Are all pitch perfect. And the only reason this actually manages to beat SpongeBob SquarePants is because squidward is the only character I actually like in the show and just to make it clear, These people have all saved their town at least once. Homer saved Springfield by stopping a bomb with Bart and ended the simpson Griffin grudge. SpongeBob saved bikini bottom once and the Krusty Krab numerous times. But gumball has saved lots of people and made them feel better about themselves. Like when Penny revealed her true form and Gumball had to convince her she wasn't a monster. And has been saved more times than I could count ever. So I think the reign of SpongeBob should end and to me, This is the new champion. Note:Only show that's better is Top Gear.

While I completely disagree with this show being better than SpongeBob, Gumball may deserve to be in the top 10.

While I like cartoons with more emotional moment than comedies, this is my all time favorite cartoons because of the comedy (and we don't need all emotional cartoon or all comedy cartoons, while shows like Adventure Time and Steven Unverse has the emotional moments, Gumball comedy is what make it amazing) there are a lot of background chacter but that is one of the thing that make the show great, the characters are memorable. I still remember names like Penny,Larry,Alan, Tubasse (if that's how you spell it, Gramma Joe, and more. And they aren't even the main characters. The comedy can appeal to all ages, and the moral of this show is really good. Honestly Gumball has an Amazing world and though the show is over (I think) I'm glad it was made.. It inspires me to make some cartoons of my own..

What? 20th place? I seriously hoped they'll put it in the list. It's my number 1 show and it's much better than SpongeBob! Cute characters, jokes for both adults and children, family-friendly content, realistic backgrounds, realistic situations...this show is the best in my opinion. Even though season 1 was a bit bad, seasons 2, 3, 4 and 5 are awesome. The show beats some standards we often see in cartoons: dumb parents (FairlyOddParents, Billy and Mandy), naughty brothers (even though Gumball is a bit selfish, Darwin is always there to show him the right way), comedy based on fart effects and pranks...I rate this show 10/10. It's the best show ever!

17 Courage the Cowardly dog Courage the Cowardly Dog is an American animated horror comedy television series created by John R. Dilworth for Cartoon Network as part of the network's Cartoon Cartoons block.

If you need a reason why Courage is one of the best cartoons of all time, check out these episodes:
Freaky Fred, Courage In The Big Stinking City, King Ramses Curse, Perfect, Remembrance Of Courage Past and Last Of The Starmakers. All fantastic episodes the last three are the saddest episodes of the series.

There's just something about Courage that makes you love him. The show is definitely creepy at times but somehow the little pink pup always pulls through and makes you want to keep watching. Very, VERY unique cartoon with a vivid world in the middle of Nowhere

This is my personal favorite shows, It is very artistic and has an abstract mood and visuals. A very creative show that is loved by many critics. Plus has the saddest Series finally I've ever seen.

I only watched it when I was little. (I need to watch it again) But I need to watch it again! From what I remember it was funny but it freaked me out, but I would probably like it better now.

18 Family Guy Family Guy is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Griffins, a family consisting of parents Peter (Fat, Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Bitchy Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Fat, Idiotic ...read more.

Family Guy is a perfect definition of my humor: it is politically incorrect, yet still not only features shock value content but also silly and goofy humor. Peter is a random and childish/childlike character who can barely say a word that doesn't seem hilariously stupid. It works because it sparks through that Seth MacFarlane is in fact an intelligent person with awesome views on the world, and is pretty much laughing at the characters and world he created, not so much with them. Family Guy may have gotten more graphic over the years, but the goofiness has stayed the same. It is the way it is delivered that makes it work so well.

I just love this show. Brian and Stewie are awesome, the musical numbers are just brilliant, the plots are usually great, and most of the secondary characters are great, or at least funny (Quagmire, Carter, etc.). It's my type of show, my type of humor. I don't think it copies from the Simpsons. Sure, the family might be based around it (dad, housewife, son, daughter, baby) but otherwise, they aren't very alike. In short, I adore the genius that is Family Guy. And if you disagree, all I can say is: LET ME HAVE MY OWN OPINION.

Speaking of comedy, this show became so popular, it came on FOX. The name of that show is Family Guy. Why is Family Guy one of the popular cartoons worldwide? Reason being is because of the humor. But like South Park, there is some stuff inappropriate for kids. But most adults loved it, and became a worldwide phenomenon. It was crowned the most popular show on FOX, because more than 15,500 people around the world was so amazed of the show. However it's still number 5, because it stole it from one of the cartoons coming up next.

Some stuff is inappropriate for kids because this show is not for kids.

Family Guy isn't such a bad show, but personally it was at its best from Season 1 to 9. It went downhill after all of the characters became downright unlikable and it just relied on shock humor all the time. But it's not terrible, its does have its funny and memorable moments.

19 Rick and Morty Rick and Morty is an American adult animated science fiction sitcom created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Adult Swim.

Honestly, I'm not generally into adult swim. I know that's kind of strange, but it's just that they're so inconsistent. They release one great show like robot chicken, and then they release Squidbillies. They release Venture Bros, then they release Mr. Pickles. But out of the shows they've released, this is far and wide the best. It has sharp, clever humor, fantastic plots (I mean, how do you beat switching dimensions because you ruined your old planet with a love potion? Why, just add parasites that infest people's memories! ), great characters and awesome action scenes. The only way to describe this master piece is Futurama meets American Dad, and they get cross bred with Invader Zim, and that result is then ate by Ren and Stimpy. And if that doesn't sound awesome, then you're weird.

Bizarre and funny. Cool and smart. Amazingly animated and the voices are great. Impressive and awesome. Creative and sometimes even heartfelt. This cartoon has deep characters and it's mysterious, like whats behind Rick's giant mind. I only just started watching this cartoon 2 weeks ago and, even though I've only seen the first season on dvd, This is my new favorite cartoon of all time. Things like Regular Show and Spongebob have nothing on this extremely good cartoon. My 2 favorite minor characters of all time have to be Dr. Bloom and Snowball. I could write a 700 page book on how much I love this cartoon. I am watching it right now. Please don't judge me on everything that I've said. Goodbye, and Wubba Lubba Dub Dubs!

If this is seriously below Spongebob and the Powerpuff Girls, I'm killing myself because this is the best cartoon on television right now. I swear, it's the funniest, smartest, and most creative show out there, and if you think The Simpsons is better, I'm sorry, but I will think very low of you unless it's for nostalgia or childhood memories reasons.

Imagine getting that offended over a cartoon not being high on some subjective top ten website.

I'm sure that this one is going to raise fast! Simply flabbergasting; this cartoon really has it all: Simpsons storyboard and animation style, South Park/Ren&Stimpy humor, Adventure time creativity, Regular Show utter wackyness and unique charachters like no other. Indeed this show really has all it needs to become one of the top 10, if not top 3, best animations ever

20 Phineas and Ferb Phineas and Ferb is an American animated comedy-musical television series. Originally broadcast as a one-episode preview on August 17, 2007 and again previewed on September 28, 2007, the series officially premiered on February 1, 2008 and ended on June 12, 2015 on Disney Channel, and follows Phineas ...read more.

Nostalgia. Every character is different, Doofenshmirtz is the most relatable and funny character ever, and I love each new invention and it never gets old.

My top 10 reasons why Phineas and Ferb is the best Disney channel cartoon

1 Doofenshmirts is the funniest villain ever.
2 Perry the platypus is the coolest cartoon character ever.
3 Phineas and Ferb are the best partners ever.
4 Isabella is the cutest cartoon character ever.
5 Phineas and Isabella are the best cartoon couple ever.
6 the voices are very sharp.
7 the animation style is great.
8 they make every episode with the same formula and make it good at the same time.
9 the inventions are cool and creative.
10 across the second dimension is the best Disney channel animated movie ever.

This show absolutely deserves to be in the Top 5. BUT NOT IN THE TOP 10. This show is too good for Top 10. And the Top 20. I got to be honest this show crashed in the last season. I mean if you compare the last song (From the Episode "Last Day of Summer") to a season 1 song (such as Backyard beach) it's like comparing Poop to a bag of M&M's I mean the last song is ABSOLUTE TRASH. Even my 5 year old cousin could write a better song. Seasons as the year went on just were trash.
Season 1: Great songs, better plots and awesome desperate attempts from Candace to bust her brothers and notice Jeremy.
Season 2: Good songs, Still good plots and funny attempts from Candace to bust there brothers. Still trying to get Jeremy
Season 3: Not as Good songs Stale Plots and the desperate attempts from Candace was just getting old. Jeremy and Candace finally got together.
Season 4: Trash songs, Stale plots again the attempts to bust her brothers were getting pretty idiotic and Jeremy and ...more

Even Though this show is popular, what I really liked about it was it was the only Best Bro Show (In my 2009-2014 Gen) that wasn't ruined by a girl (other than SpongeBob). I'm not being hateful, but in cool shows like Gumball and Regular Show, halfway through the show they decided to throw in a girlfriend for Gumball, Mordecai and Rigby. Which made the dynamic duos grow apart. I like how Jeff Swampy Marsh and David (or Dave) Povenmire didn't put in a lovelife with Phineas. I mean there was a time towards the end of the series where Phineas kissed Isabella. But I didn't get enraged because that episode came out the week before the Finale.

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

This show is great! Deserves to be higher! But what's the point of Poof? I'm not complaining or anything I'm just saying he really just floats there.

This T.V. Show was very awesome in the first 5 seasons, but then Season 6 they started to run out of ideas, by introducing Poof. By season 9, I lost interest, but do NOT get me started on Season 10. I hate season 10 with a passion. It ruined my childhood, a bad theme song, getting rid of the good secondary characters, and introducing CHLOE! Now I'm so glad this show will be cancelled soon...

The animation is great, the creator of this show worked on the amazing Danny phantom, honestly this show might have gone downhill (suprizingly enough I still like it) the animation became more and more modern and well drawn,
I'm mad that nickelodeon canceled this in June, I WANT MORE! MORE! This is my favrote cartoon!

I hate that dog sparky it ruined fairly odd parents and don't forget that Chloe and SHARING the God parents dang this show sucks nowadays I miss this show before that dog I hope sparky gets worms and Chloe gets Ebola and they both DIE!

22 Scooby Doo Where Are You?

It’s probably one of the most classic shows with a lot of good jokes, monsters to leave you hanging wondering who it is. The characters and plot development are also superb though Scooby Doo mystery incorporated might just be the best. The mayor is a whole ass mood though-

This is the best Scooby-Doo cartoon out there! I loved it! Funny, scary, and interesting, all mixed into one great cartoon masterpiece! I should be number 5 in all cartoons, 1 in old cartoons, and 10/10 on a scale of greatness. Hanna-Barbera's greatest creation is this amazing cartoon that deserves to be in the top ten! Thank you William Hanna and Joseph Barbera for making such a great cartoon!

Scooby doo has been the only cartoon that I continue to watch even now. Watching this show when I was five years old is the reason why mystery is my favorite genre today. For many people including myself 'those meddling kids' will always have a VERY special place in our hearts. Love you Scooby Doo x

Scooby Doo had the most underrated cartoon character ever Scrappy Doo, come on he was just so cute. Ok maybe some hated his catchphrases "dananaadana puppy power" "let me at 'em." But from childhood to now I just thought he was a cute dog. I just ignore the evil Scrappy from the movies. He was out of character he would never try to kill his uncle.

23 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 love watching this show! Sid is the funniest character and when he cries it sounds hilarious. I'm sad there weren't more seasons, because it could go on until season 20 something if there were.

Hey Arnold is a pretty great cartoon that actually teaches life lessons and good morals. This show was way ahead of its time

This show seemed to do something that lots of other shows would struggle to do. It was super boring at the first season or two, but after that it got better and better all the way to its end! The Jungle Movie was great and ended the whole franchise so perfectly! I just wish they would have made a scene where Arnold finds out that Helga was Cecile this whole time from the Valentine’s Day episode.

Hey Arnold is one of the best cartoons I've ever known. I loved it as a kid, and I love it as a 20-year-old adult. It's full of little hints, and all of the episodes are entertraining and interesting. Kids should watch cartoons like this because I learned a lot from this as a kid.

24 Star vs. The Forces of Evil "Star vs. the Forces of Evil" is an American animated television comedy produced by Disney Television Animation for Disney XD. It was created by Daron Nefcy and developed by Jordana Arkin and Dave Wasson. The series follows teenage magical princess from the dimension of Mewni Star Butterfly and her ...read more.

(Spoiler Warning)
The best Disney show I have ever seen! (Well, probably because this is the only show on Disney that I have got into by myself)
It shows characters with flaws and character development. For example, Star is a girl sent from Mewni. Marco isn't comfortable with her at first but then falls in love in the seasons 3 and 4. This should at least have a season 5, or a movie. I try to get myself into drawing art for it when I can, and this is just my opinion. Please do not hate. Also I love underrated shows. And SvtFoE; is just one of them.

Perfect, perfect, PERFECT! A great cartoon that defies many stereotypes! First of all, when you look at the main character, you think that Star is another blonde-haired, blue-eyed Disney princess. Well, she is all that, but, move over, Sleeping Beauty! There's more to this princess! Instead of sitting in her throne and waiting for her prince charming, she kicks monster butt with her friend, Marco. And you don't see something like this too often! This show is also a lot funnier and more original than some other cartoons on today. This show is great! I highly suggest it!

This show is the next Steven Universe its fairly new so many people don't know about it but let me tell you that this shows first season is very promising! The show has magic, comedy, and an actual plot near the end of the season. This show got a 7.9/ 10 rating which is REALLY good and it deserves it for sure! The main character Star is an awesome character and her companions such as Marco and others are equally as fun. This show is worth your time...just get to the season 1 finale!

To compare this show to Steven Universe is just wrong. I have seen this show and it is horrible. If you compare it to Steven Universe you must hate Steven Universe

First I thought this was a dumb cartoon cause I looked at random clips of there episodes on youtube a while back. A couple weeks back my internet friend suggested cartoons to me that I should watch, she brought up this one, then I said to myself
"Why not I watch the very first episode and see how it goes"
So then I did, then I thought it was pretty hilarious, so then I got more into the series and it was pretty worthy to watch! It's a good cartoon to watch, I watched it because I was bored all the time, so if your bored or have any spare time and have nothing to do in it, you should go watch this

25 Rugrats Rugrats is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain for Nickelodeon.

This show rugrats is the best it lasted for 13 years 1991-2004 the show was the best those little kids adventure was so cool it made you want to be one of them coming from my opinion I watched this show everyday when I was a kid this show was so awesome it was so good they even made a spinoff all grown up 2003-2008 T.V. series this show was also the bomb but nothing can beat rugrats this really should be number 1 who doesn't love chuckie this show should of never ended it should lasted long like the Simpsons since 1989 if I were a producer I would've renewed this show after all grown up was done. this show shouldve been number 1 spot or 2 how dare they put this at 21
. but this was my favorite show ever no doubt. love it if you haven't seen it check it out you'll fall in love.

One of the cutest shows I've ever seen. Tommy and Chuckie are absolutely adorable. But let's face it, some part of us will always want to punch Angelica.

Lots of my childhood featured the Rugrats. Chuckie Finster is just the cutest little thing!

If you hate rugrats then you think Sanjay and Craig or modern SpongeBob are great
