Top Ten Best Cartoons

The Top Ten

1 SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 18 years, and is beginning its 11th season. The show ...read 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!

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? The number 1 cartoon in the world is SpongeBob SquarePants! Absorbent and yellow and porous is he. The show became a worldwide phenomenon. Just why is SpongeBob the number 1 cartoon in the world? Reason being is because of everything about it. The show debuted in 1999, and still exists toady. Everybody around the world loved it thanks to the creators of the show from other Nicktoons classics like Rocko's Modern Life, The Angry Beavers, and Hey Arnold! Plus it won like over 11-12 awards in the Kids Choice Awards. The video games do count. It may have lost to favorite cartoon in the 2008 Kids Choice Awards, but nobody cared, and the show became the most popular ever since. It has over 32,000-35,500 fans all around the world. So it's both the most popular cartoon on Nickelodeon, and alone all over the world!

I loved this show as a kid, I still love it as a teenager, and I will always love it no mater how old I get. This is without a doubt the greatest cartoon I have ever seen. It is better than looney toons, it is better than Tom and jerry (though not by much) and it is MUCH better than everything on Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon and Disney nowadays. While looney toons and tom and jerry were the pioneers, or the citizen canes, of the cartoon world, SpongeBob is the godfather of cartoons. They took the ore existing formula for the cartoon show and got it right, almost perfectly right. So thank you Tom Kenny, Stephen Hillenburg and everyone involved in the making of this nostalgic powerhouse! Thank you for SpongeBob, the lovable, friendly, hard working child who was my hero as a kid and one of my favorite fictional characters to date. That you for Patrick, who, in addition to being probably the best comic relief character ever, is an awesome and loyal friend and a true hero. Thank you for ...more

2 The Simpsons The Simpsons The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening that started in 1989, and is still running as of 2017, making it the longest running animated sitcom. It is about a man named Homer and his family Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie going through a long series of misadventures.

Remember Family Guy, because that show was so popular, it stole it from one of the cartoons coming in at number 4. The Simpsons. The show was crowned the number 1 most popular FOX cartoon worldwide. Like family Guy, and South Park, there is a little bit of inappropriate stuff for kids. But everyone around the world loved the cartoon, because it has a lot of humor, and other stuff. It became really popular, because more than 20,000 people loved the show. However it still can't match for the next cartoon.

Classic. Funny. Well animated. Everything everyone loves about cartoons.

Simpsons is a cartoon that the whole family can enjoy, and it doesn't get old. I watched SpongeBob for about 2 years and then I got bored. I've been watching Simpsons for about 4 years now, and it still cracks me up every time, even if it's one I've already seen. - GingerSnapz

It rips off The Flintstones so much it's not even funny. Now The Flintstones isn't even looked at anymore thanks to this idiotic show. Thanks a lot.

3 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 ...read more.

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.

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

Gravity falls deserves to be number one on this list and here's why. This show is a creative masterpiece with amazing jokes and witty banter but unlike the other shows on this list that's not the only part of the show unlike the Simpsons the looney toons and spongebob this isn't a mindless cartoon that just spews at jokes for kids it's a much deeper cartoon with a huge and amazing plot with many mysteries still there. I don't know anyone who would spend hours analyzing the plot and mysteries of the looney toons or the simpsons and I don't hear anyone talking about how complex and fascinating the others show are. This show may not necessarily be a kids show but it isn't an adult swim show either it didn't have to rely on fart jokes and it didn't have to play out unoriginal tropes this show had a unique cast of characters and episodes that made you laugh cry and ask multiple questions. No episode of spongebob made me laugh as much as most episodes of gravity falls and gravity falls ...more

This is the greatest show of all time and it has shown me how you can really go in a cartoon

4 Looney Tunes 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.

One of the very first series of cartoons ever made, Looney Tunes introduced a new style of Cartoons that is still used today. Slapstick. That means Safes and Anvils falling from the sky, Bombs and TNT stuffed in pants, Giant Hammers, Explosions, the list goes on. Not only that but introduced great charaters like Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.

Looney tunes is an awesome cartoon... Its funny when daffy and bugs are together in an episode

I love the Looney Tunes. My favorite is when Daffy Duck said to Bugs Bunny "You're Despicable."

The looney tunes are better as the simpsons and spongebob square pants.

5 South Park 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.

I love this show! It may get racist at sometimes, and Cartman insults Jews a lot, but this show actually has a plot. A plot for every episode. And, back in the old days, Kyle or Stan always learned something. They give us lessons that we now use in our everyday lives.

And the fact that in their Cartoon Wars episodes (may be spoiler) when Cartman stated that Family Guy is nothing but jokes that have nothing to do with the storyline... South Park has jokes that go with the storyline.

Cartman is designed to be the most evil child in the world. He is like a metaphor that represents everything wrong with society. - Lasvegasxavier

South Park was Comedy Central's world phenomenon. It became the most popular cartoon on Comedy Central. It maybe very popular, however their is some stuff kids shouldn't watch, because the rating of the show is rated
T.V. -MA. Most of the adults around the world love the show. The total of popularity is about 7,000. Obviously Futurama almost took it's place for best Comedy Central cartoon. But the South Park fans didn't care about it. On to the next cartoon we go.

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

6 Tom and Jerry Tom and Jerry Tom and Jerry is an American animated series of short films created in 1940, by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera.

Actually Tom & Jerry had more battles than Dragonball z did. Over 300 cartoons featuring a cat battling a mouse is much more entertaining than some stupid martial arts crapfest.

It is the best cartoon of all times and also its own thousands of films with live peoples! Tom and Jerry is much more than just cartoon, its sweet memory about good old days. It was probably first cartoon I ever watched... I will watch this till the moment I wouldn't open my eyes

This should have been on the top, above all.
This cat-mouse Chase has entertained numerous people for over seventy years and is still going strong. - nicholas73

7 Avatar: The Last Airbender Avatar: The Last Airbender Avatar: The Last Airbender is an American animated television series that aired for three seasons on Nickelodeon from 2005 to 2008. Avatar: The Last Airbender is set in an Asiatic-like world in which some people are able to manipulate the classical elements by use of psychokinetic variants of Chinese ...read more.

This show is a masterpiece. It reinvented what it meant to be a cartoon by not being some ridiculous slapstick comedy that relies on shallow and unrealistic plot lines just to gain a laugh. Avatar was the one of the first successful cartoons to introduce an overarching plot, a storyline that stretches over the entire series. By doing this, they were able to show great character development. Sokka turned from a narcissistic, misogynistic jerk to a man deserving of leading the Water Tribe, while still maintaining his comedic elements. Aang turned from a bubbly little kid to a true hero. Katara turned from an overbearing supporting character to a strong, independent warrior. Zuko probably displayed the most change, literally turning from villain to hero. You get the point. And aside from the main characters, there was an amazing and memorable cast of supporting roles like Iroh, Bumi, and Azula. Aside from characters, the universe they creating was so expansive and detailed. So much so ...more

Avatar the Last Airbender is an amazing show. I'm surprised it isn't in number one right now! It's perfect for every age; it has EVERY element that a great show would have; romance, comedy, adventure, action, and great characters. Toph has incredible and awesome earthbending powers, Aang is fun-loving (and of course the Avatar), and Sokka keeps me laughing all the time! (I don't think there was any episode where I didn't laugh out loud). Katara is very brave and kind, which is definitely something to admire! I've seen every single episode, and is NEVER boring. The creators also did a great great job, especially with the whole bending concept! Who doesn't love that? The story line is amazing and filled with danger and excitement. This show is a classic! There is no show currently in the world that can beat Avatar and there never will be! I will never stop liking this AWESOME AWESOME cartoon.

In summary:
GO TEAM AVATAR!

An thoughtful, mature, heartwarming and sometimes humourous show with which no other cartoon can compare. It has a simple fantasy premise but the execution is interesting and inspired. The show convinces you that this world exists in and of itself, with unique cultures (cleverly inspired by real east-Asian and inuit cultures) with a magical power (bending) integrated into the lore perfectly. The characters are relatable, multidimensional and somehow quite accurate portrayals of children. For a show generally targeted towards children, the use of a character like Zuko, with an alignment with the antagonists at the beginning but an alignment with the protagonists by the end, is quite revolutionary. The presentation of the people of the fire nation as human, and the government of the Earth Kingdom as corrupt elucidated that the enemy nations aren't always merely evil and that the allied nations are never perfect either. This is a nuance which again is revolutionary for a children's show.

Guys, I'm in LOVE with AVATAR!

8 Regular Show 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.

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.

While I think the Simpsons is the best, I'm gonna vote for Regular Show. It's so bizarre yet so creative and hilarious. CN has had many fantastic shows and this one will be remembered.

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.

The end of this show ruined the rest of my childhood. I still miss it to this day, yet I still hope that no one tries to recreate such a masterpiece of a cartoon without the original actors. - izzychavez

It had cool jokes. Nice character development. And was Cartoon Networks most popular show. It also had a good finale. Watch it for a half hour of laughs.

While it disappoints me to no end that this show ended, it does me good to know that my favorite cartoon went out with a bang. I will never forget this show. It rules.

It was fine

10 Adventure Time 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.

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 an amazing show, the one I grew up with, and the one I've grown to love. I't such a shame to see it under some shows I really hate (I apologize to fans of these) such as Edd, Ed, n Eddy. I can't describe how much this show, it's characters, and it's universe have expanded over the years. When I first watched it, I thought it to be some stupid show about a one-dimensional hero boy and his dumb shapeshifting dog going on "mathematical! " adventures with a stereotype princess scientist made of bubblegum. And honestly, that's what some of the first season's episodes were. But as the show went on, Finn went from a self absorbed hero boy to a complex character trying to hold onto his universal perspective, friends, and himself as he gets older (also, did you know adventure time is one of the few shows with aging characters? ) and faces new challenges, such as discovering his dad -Spoiler: He's a complete fool and makes Finn lose his arm trying to keep his dad ...more

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.

How is this so low? Adventure Time is an amazing, humorous yet deep cartoon which has an amazing plot. I have grown up with this show, and I still watch it at ten years old. There is an unforgettable, unfolding story which always has something to reveal. Some people may find it 'weird', but remember: never judge a book by it's cover!

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

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.

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.

This is by far the best cartoon ever! It's the show that changed everything! Before this show kids didn't have any adult-level cartoons. The show is dark, but still comepletely accesable to kids! That's hard to do!

HOW IS THIS NOT IN THE TOP 10, IT’S SO GOOD THAT PEOPLE OF ALL AGES CAN WATCH IT, IT HAS SUCH DEPTH AND STORYTELLING. - Jon8201

12 Steven Universe 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.

Man, where do I begin with this. This has to be my all-time favorite show. The characters are some of the most realistic-feeling, layered, and lovable characters I've ever seen in a T.V. show. Garnet is a strong leader that cares deeply for the rest of the Crystal Gems, even if she doesn't always show it. Pearl is basically the closest thing Steven has to a motherly figure, and despite still having some troubles with past experiences, she still shows passion for what she believes in. Amethyst is just a bundle of fun, with some surprisingly deep self-esteem issues, that acts as a sibling/friend for Steven. And Steven is a sweet, relatable kid who just wants the world to be a better place. I could go on about the characters but do to length and spoilers, I'll stop here. The point is that the characters are extremely relatable and perfectly imperfect. The music is absolutely gorgeous, weather it is a song playing in the background or a character randomly breaking out into song. The art ...more

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.

Steven Universe is a kind and thoughtful show. It features thoughtful and meaningful characters that are well thought out and planned. It also reflects on real life conflicts, like losing a dear friend or fighting between someone different, revealing that no one, not even Gems, are perfect. It also shows how an unlikely group deals with real life situations and the occasional time where mythical monsters and creatures get involved. This show is perfect for anyone who likes drama and cartoons. Along with the occasional comedy and jokes. - StevenU

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

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.

All those who think otherwise should bite Bender's red hot glowing, shiny metal, glorious golden ass!

This cartoon is nearly perfect. The characters are all great and as silly as it can be it can also be deep and touching. The characters grow and work very well together and has never failed to make me laugh. How this is stuck at number 11 is beyond me - Johnnyt800

14 Family Guy 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 (Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Idiotic Son), and Stewie ...read more.

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.

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. - Martin_Canine

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.

I feel like people don't give the earlier seasons some credit, they had some hilarious episodes and clever cutaway gags! - Phillip873

15 Invader Zim 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.

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

I love this show so much! Compaired to SpongeBob SquarePants, this show is awesome! I feel it should be on the top ten because it's extremely unique. I would never have been able to come up with such a show. Though it was cancelled, fans are demanding for it to come back. This show is full of Dark humor, but it's just hilarious! GO ZIM!

How does South Park and Family Guy beat this show?

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

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!

With action packed battles, hilarious comments, and great characters, this is the best show ever!

Personally, one of the BEST cartoons there are! With a detailed plot and amazing characters you really get to know, how can you not fall in love with the animation style and characters! I'm sad that it's so low down the list when (to me) it beats quite a few of the cartoons above.

I put this show at #2 of all time next to Spongebob, they need to make a season 6 what happens to TERRA and what happened to her. number 1 rule in T.V. NEVER END THE SERIES ON A CLIFFHANGER and if they do bring it back for the final season but if they make it like that go trash cartoon network would probably be sued, but the're starting to air it again season 6 is within reach.

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

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

Chuckie was hilarious though, with his fear of William Penn (the guy in the oatmeal box) and his paranoia of monsters coming at him

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.

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

18 Hey Arnold! 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.

It's one of the only cartoons that keeps getting better by each season. The last season had the best episodes.

This show should be in the top ten of the list! This show is the best show ever and I recently bought the whole series on dvd and it's amazing! This show deserves more love

Great Nick Classic and Arnold was great as a main character

Not as good as Spongebob, The Simpson's, or Futurama, but it is great and should be in the top 10.

19 Scooby Doo Where Are You?

Question: WHY THE HECK IS SCOOBY DOO NOT IN THE TOP TEN?!
Just like SpongeBob and Gravity Falls, I will love this show and remember it forever. My dad is as obsessed as SpongeBob with this cartoon! It is very original too: Who ever thought of putting a talking dog and his "Gang" (NEVER TEAM. I DO NOT LIKE THAT WORD, EVEN IF I'VE USED IT.) that solves mysteries and catch suspects.

Each character is different, too. Sure, they may seem like "Stereotypes" but that's just the fun of it. It is an enjoyable and amazing show, and I will never, ever, ever ever ever ever forget it.

~TAH OUT! - TheAlbinoWolf

It's not in the top ten as it is repetitive as hell...Fred and Daphne were also very bland protagonists. - DapperPickle

Scooby Doo is the best cartoon to be put out on television, ever. It's a classic. It's the king of all mystery shows. This show doesn't even need an introduction.

I grew up watching scooby doo as a kid. The coolest thing about from the new scooby doo movies series is that they made batman and robin into the scooby doo world I thought that was a great idea.

This is the best scooby doo series ever made

20 Phineas and Ferb 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.

Phineas and Ferb starts the countdown, because although it is a popular Disney Channel show, but it's still not enough for the most popular shows right now. Most people loved the show, it made some of them watch Disney Channel more often. It just goes to show that Phineas and Ferb is a funny comedy, and lots of people in the world love comedy. More than 5,000 people worldwide loved the show, but the show is still in danger because it's still number 10 in the countdown.

I'm sorry, but if this isn't top ten worthy, then Gravity Falls isn't either. Though I love both shows, Phineas And Ferb started a whole wave of merchandising Disney Channel never could dream of, all while staying as a great cartoon for 8 years, and being fun for the whole family. Without Phineas And Ferb there is no Gravity Falls or any other decent cartoons of the 2010's (Adventure Time, Legend Of Korra etc.)

What are you talking about? Gravity Falls is top ten worthy even if Phineas and Ferb isn't in there with it, and Adventure Time and Legend of Korra have absolutely nothing to do with Phineas and Ferb, all 3 of them are on separate channels. While I do think Phineas and Ferb is an amazing cartoon that all should watch, it is not top ten worthy, however Gravity Falls does deserves a spot in the top 10 (which I'm glad it already is in the top 10) - PeeledBanana

Why is it so low on the list? Why is my little pony higher on the list. This and my little pony should switch places!

Ahh, why did this show have to end :(
