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 the late Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 19 years, and is beginning its 11th season. ...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

It's legendary my guy

2 The Simpsons 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 2018, making it the longest running animated sitcom. It is about a man named Homer ...read more.

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

Why is spongebob higher?

3 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."

My favourite cartoon of all time!

4 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

This is hilarious! I mean, this should be in the top 3! Amazing script, funny characters and awesome voice actors!

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

YES I love THIS SHOW YES!

6 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.

One word,yes

7 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

Put this at number 1 as it is full of hilarious slapstick action. The funniest thing in my opinion is tom changing shape whenever he gets hit

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.

I love regular show

9 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.

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. - NoEntranceHere

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.

Two words: Harley Quinn

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.

Amazing

The Contenders

11 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

Gets my vote. - KalloFox34

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.

This show is certainly a masterpiece, and remains one of my favorite cartoons of all time. However, I think it is worth mentioning a couple of bad things about this show

-The animation itself is kinda disgusting (though it works out well with the settings.)
-Sarah, just Sarah. I get she is meant to be the brat, but she should be a little bit nicer to her older brother
-season 5, while still being a solid season, had a couple of downright horrendous episodes like smile for the ed.

That’s literally all I have to complain about. The rest of this series is pure gold! The characters were hilarious, the voice acting is pretty darn good, and it is so easy to rewatch episodes. Also, it didn’t last too long or get cancelled way too soon like most of the good shows did (teen titans, fairly oddparents, etc.) the big picture show ended it with a bang! While I do wish it was still airing, I’m glad it ended when it did since it could have easily lost its magic if it stayed ...more

13 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

Best cartoon ever

14 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’m voting for the one on Cartoon Network so this is the closest

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!

Zim: GIR, auto-destruct yourself
GIR: ¡¡¡YES FINALLY!

16 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.

The only good dynamics in the show revolve around Brian and Stewie. The rest of the characters are tired stereotypes. Peter is the fat stupid dad, Meg is the family pushover, Quagmire is the pervert, Herbert is the much older pervert, etc. There is essentially no character development and they hardly ever change. If they do change it is for the worse. For example, the worst change was Brian changing from the voice of reason to a typical pretentious douchebag. The plots are simple and unimaginative at most times and the remnants of a good plot are cut off by a chicken fight or dumb cutaway gags. But that's the main thing that is wrong with this show. Cutaway gags. Most of the time they aren't that funny and they add nothing to the plot. Imagine watching a play and all of a sudden the entire set bends backwards to fit in a cutaway joke. The audience is gonna habe no clue why you just did something like that and will probably find it pointless. In the end, I will say the older episodes ...more - ripcurl113

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

Damn you simpsons this is the friggnin best cartoon out there! £

17 Rick and Morty 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.

Rick and Morty and Bojack Horseman are the best cartoons of all time. There's something about the witty humor and the dark, strangely depressing undertones of both shows that can't be matched.

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!

This should defiantly be above family guy. It is the best adult cartoon in my opinion - Spongehouse

18 Courage the Cowardly dog 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.

This show is very funny... Attracting and adventurous. Kids will like this show. This show is in my top 10 favorite cartoon shows

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. - Gamefreak23788

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.

One of the best cartoons ever made! ❤

19 The Amazing World of Gumball 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.

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. - JBDBIB_Baerman

Many people believe that this cartoon is for little kids only, but ladies and gentlemen, you're wrong. The Amazing World of Gumball is a great cartoon, with original characters and I don't know about you guys, but it almost always gives me a laugh when I'm down. I think that this deserves to be in the top 10.

This show is so underrated! It's AMAZING and needs to be in the top ten! Sure, it doesn't beat SpongeBob, but that is not my opinion. The animation is clearly better, and it beats the new SpongeBob episodes. I understand that SpongeBob is a classic, but look at the present, maybe even the future. Let it go. This show is great for all ages! It is special and unique and absalutely awesome. It is realatable and have very cute characters. I love this show! People underestimate it so much and look at all the negative things, that they forget to look at all the amazing things this show has already accomplished. I'm soon, that by a little while, it will at least be in the top 15.

Best cartoon ever

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 teenage ...read more.

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 - Thanosgreninja

My new favorite show! It's fun and exciting! I can't get enough of it! I can't wait for the new episodes!

At first glance this show may seem way to crazy and a show that heavily relies on randomness like Teen Titans Go but this show is so much more! Although it is pretty crazy and random at times it really brings the emotion and tension. It should be much higher on this list. Everyone should at least watch the season 1 finale

You laugh, you cry, you scream, you love. This show contain dangerously addictive character. Be prepared to become a fan of this. Can't wait season 4.

21 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

22 Scooby Doo Where Are You? 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.

It should b in top 10 n that's my opinion

23 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.

I loved this show so much as a kid. Angelica is the most spoilt bitch ever

24 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.

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

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

I want to become like phineas

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

Dude, this deserves to be higher. It's lower than Adventure Time and Family Guy, which is weird in my opinion. I think it should be between 15-10. Very good show. - Ummagumma1969

This show is way better then dragon ball z which is not a cartoon it's anime there is a total difference between the two (anime is from Japan and cartoon is from America)

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!

This show deserves to be higher. It has everything: life lessons, fun scenes, emotions and also, magic. I’ve heard for this only four months ago, but it’s better than anything else.

Only at 16! This cartoon was hysterical! This should be in top 10.

The Flintstones was so, so clever. Amusing and inventive. Excellent for its age. - Myke1

This shows was spoofed from the Honeymooners. YouTube it if you dumb-dumbs don't know what that mean.

27 The Powerpuff Girls The Powerpuff Girls The Powerpuff Girls is an American animated television series created by animator Craig McCracken for Cartoon Network. The main characters of this show are Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. The show is about the Professor Utonium creating three little superhero girls that save the day from villains. ...read more.

Three little girls fighting crime? That's what make this cartoon unique. Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup saves the day before bedtime. Other characters includes Mojo Jojo, one of cartoon's best villains and HIM, the most scary villain in this show. The cartoon has plenty of mature jokes that you would not get until you're older. Also, this cartoon shows the equality in genders. Most of the characters cross-dressed in some point of the series, the town's heroes are little girls, their parent is a single father who cooks and clean, and HIM is a cross-dresser. The Powerpuff Girls is a funny, clever, and friendly series.

This series is cute and really cool, it provides A nice dose of violence for older viewers, and has had A spin-off special.

Plenty of adult jokes, and plenty of funny normal jokes. And it's pretty cute. I loved the Powerpuff Girls when I was younger. And also, HIM is definitely the scariest thing I've ever seen. I just don't understand why he's there. Is he supposed to be terrifying? Is he supposed to be funny? I can't tell.

Doubtlessly my all time favorite! I daren't even attempt to put into words how perfect this show is, so I'll leave it at this: It is something everybody should give a chance at least once in their entire lifetime. This needs to be in the top 3, top 5 absolute minimum.

28 Animaniacs Animaniacs Steven Spielberg Presents Animaniacs is an American animated comedy television series produced by Amblin Television label in collaboration with Warner Bros.

Funny. Funny. And did I say funny? Also had educational songs. Example: united states Canada Mexico panama hati Jamaica Peru. Song 2: baton rouge Louisiana Indianapolis Indiana and columbus is the capital of Ohio. Examples completed. Watch it.

Way funnier than any of these new cartoon shows that have come out. - egnomac

This should be in the top ten. Animaniacs is the God of humor. It uses humor right. I almost laughed at this show which is pretty rare. Yakko, Wacko and Dot are the best cartoon characters ever created. I find this to be even greater than SpongeBob SquarePants for sure. I don't get why SpongeBob is number one. It deserves to be on the list, but One Coarse Meal and A Pal For Gary were so bad I dislike the cartoon more. But Animaniacs has no bad episodes. I do hope it gets more attention.

Top ten all time

29 Pokemon Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets.

I'm pretty amazed that this is so low. I think the genwunners just hate that it's gone on for so long. Truth is, I recently started watching the show again when I found out how many free episodes were on the website, and I think the show is going just as strong as ever. Maybe even better. I started watching the original Indigo League season after many Black and White episodes and I feel the old episodes have worse animation, worse jokes, and the loud, obnoxious Misty. Can't believe I put up with her as a kid. Iris is way cooler. Also, I've seen one or two episodes with N, and I really like how they're using him to explore the issue of whether Pokémon battles can be ethical. It's about time they addressed that. In the first season, Ash uses a torturous power generator to give Pikachu an extra boost to beat Brock. That shocked me, so to speak. I can actually see why some animal rights activists got worked up about this show. So quit whining about how the show has gone downhill and all ...more

I think the whole reason this show is #16 is because of the new series. I mean I don't blame people for doing it. Before, Pokemon was a great show but after they replaced Brock and moved on to season 14 it kind of went down hill. I'm not saying the characters are bad (even though they are pretty annoying) I'm just saying that maybe this is why people voted this show for such a low rating.

I am listing this more on the seasons 1-5 I'm not fond of the new series at all, this is the best anime I have watched, giving great characters such as Misty Brock and Gary Oak. it's hard not to love this show even if you don't play the game.

30 The Ren & Stimpy Show The Ren & Stimpy Show The Ren & Stimpy Show, often simply referred to as Ren & Stimpy, is an American animated television series created by John Kricfalusi for Nickelodeon.

Can't believe this isn't in the top ten! Well at least it's somewhere in the list. This is the second-best cartoon ever (after Batman: The Animated Series)!

How is this not in the top ten?! Ren and stimpy is one of the most classic cartoons ever!

Adult jokes, sexual innuendo and non-stop over the top violence with an emotionally unstable chihuahua and a very dim cat. It's a cartoon like nothing I've seen before, and never be likely to see again. An obvious influence for later shows such as South Park

I'd have to admit this is better than that unholy adult spin-off. - Calebd20

Despite the target demographic of young girls, Friendship Is Magic has also gained a large following of older viewers, mainly young and ...read more.

This show is ok, I guess. What it needs is some tough love and grit, as well as greater diversity, relatable characters, exciting plots, times when the odds are against the pony featured in an episode, stronger characters with flaws and weaknesses as well, and times when things are dark, but in a way that doesn't feel too dark. It needs to be real. It needs to confront social and societal issues in a way that is appropriate and up to date.

A few ideas would be scenarios in which friendship is more difficult, and isn't portrayed in a cheesy 'it's a cure-all' way. It also needs to portray not an ideal and problem less society, but an exact opposite, that varies by region. Equestria shouldn't be the only country shown in the series, and the countries should have different governments and cultures, and show how they directly affect people. It should show some basic relationships between countries; good and bad. And while females take the spotlight, they shouldn't have stereotyped ...more - AthenOwl

You guys are STUPID for saying this is the best show and should be #1. This show is not interesting and not funny. It's ugly and annoying. The fandom is even more WORSE!

Liked it at first but when I got to season 3 series I was bored and annoyed. The characters are too over exaggerated, the plot is dull, and the show is overall stereotypical. Ponies, rainbows, sweets, and bright colors? What kind of originality is that! If you want real good shows then try watching Pokemon or Sonic X. Cause this show makes us girls look like all we think about is Sunshine and rainbows.

This should be around top 20 or more like 10 because this is the best show and it teaches you about friendship and als 20% cooler

32 American Dad American Dad American Dad! is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker, and Matt Weitzman for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

Besides the typical liberal vs conservative dogfights in the show, this is miles beyond Family Guy in terms of story. Almost every character in the show has depth and is very interesting. They nailed it with Roger though because he has a very fluid personality and has many personas. There is also great character development for characters like Stan. Some episodes revolve around why he acts so harshly authoritarian (most likely because he had a horrible father) and in others he is convinced to change his views on certain subjects. But there are a lot of very dynamic and interesting plots. I especially love episodes with Principal Lewis. A deranged, drug-addicted, maniacal middle school principal is so god damn funny. While this show may not touch shows like Futurama or South Park, I say it is very very close to both of them, and way beyond Family Guy. A great show that never bores me and I enjoy watching every episode. - ripcurl113

This show is the best that Seth Macfarlane has ever done since Johnny Bravo in the 90's it's funny with Stan who is actually hilarious, Francine who is the typical mother who ACTUALLY IS HOT!, Steven is funny because of his attempts to be cool, Hayley is the hippy daughter, and Roger the funniest character of the show with Klaus. American Dad can never die.

American Dad should be at number one it is just so funny. Roger is hilarious and so over the top. Francine is funnier than every other cartoon mom. She made Stan and Hayley go out to bond otherwise she would cut there faces with a wine bottle. You wouldn't see Linda, Donna, marge or even Lois doing that. The other charictors are funny and good to.

This show is hilarious - KalloFox34

Too underrated there are a lot of better shows but deserves a higher position, at least top 20's but good job with most of the list!

I'm still angry at Nickelodeon for cancelling this in the middle of Season 3. It caused the finale Phantom Planet, which wasn't terrible, but not the finale that the writers wanted, or that anybody else wanted. Major networks have a problem with cancelling amazing shows, and I don't know why. - RestlessHeartGrenade

Top 40 is good, but reaching first page would be phenomenal. Especially since one of the greatest cartoons in animation had just finished up its 2017 revival with a bang from the beginning and a bittersweet yet satisfying conclusion in the end. And let me tell you some things. Even though I unfortunately never watched Samurai Jack as a kid, I've recently seen many clips of the old episodes from the first four seasons and I can guarantee you that they are of 5-star quality. Samurai Jack was already a masterpiece of an animated series in its first four seasons, but its fifth and final season truly proved to be the most deep and mature season that the show has ever had, especially since it was aimed towards its original audience that had grown up with the show. All in all, Samurai Jack is a diamond in the rough that will not only continue to be regarded as Genndy Tartakovsky's magnum opus of his works in animation, but also one of the best cartoons in existence. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I'll admit I didn't really watch this show growing up and I decided to give it a chance for the first time. I originally thought it was gonna be one of those really corny cartoons I grew up with that don't really hold up now (at least to me), but this show is surprisingly good. It has such a unique art style, animation and ideas.

It didn't really make me a fan though because I'm not really much of an animation guy (like I said, some cartoons I watched don't really hold up now), but if you want to get people into animation then introduce them to this. - DarkMatter1997

Samurai Jack, 81? Existence needs to rearrange itself, before this award winning, king among kings among the era that unleashed some of the greatest classics of animation in any time is placed so low on this list, I don't believe my eyes, come on people, Titans Go got higher than this? :(

While I'm not really a huge fan of Dexter's Lab or Powerpuff Girls (even though Genndy didn't make that one), this show really got me hooked. One of the less commercial and more artsy animated shows of the 2000s, Samurai Jack had everything. Clever writing, funny humor, a beautiful art style, eclecticism and a ton of creativity.

Seriously, it's rare to find American cartoons like this. You can actually take it seriously and it doesn't come off as too corny or childish. Definitely check this show out if you're new to animation. - Redrocm

Am I hallucinating? Did this show seriously not reach the top 200 on this list? I understand that this show is a little-known underground cult classic that took 21 years to finally get full DVD support. However, this show was brilliant, clever, satirical, memorable, relatable, adult-oriented, inspiring, and very high-class kids' comedy with a beautiful style. It was definitely an inspiration for Spongebob, and it has a lot of moments that should be considered classic and awesome ("He's completely... NAKED... WITH NO CLOTHES ON! "). Throw this show a bone, please.

This show is surprisingly close to being literally the definition of pure class, despite its appearance.

38 Bob's Burgers Bob's Burgers Bob's Burgers is an American animated sitcom created by Loren Bouchard for The Fox Broadcasting Company. It premiered on January 9, 2011 and is still running as of 2017.

The way the dialogue in this show goes just feels so real, and for that reason is also very hilarious. I also love how, despite it being a family character set, still doesn't have any stereotypical characters. Sure Bob is fat, but he isn't stupid and actually is rational and cares about his family. The kids and Linda are also interesting and quirky, and the thought of having a very low-pitched voice for Tina is hilarious. - ripcurl113

I got into this show pretty easy, though the first season is a little boring. It doesn't try to be edgy like other "adult cartoons". It's way more wholesome and most of the characters are enjoyable (even some of the jerk characters). - Phillip873

It's so funny and clever! I love how there are 3 main female characters, and only one is voiced by an actual female. My favorite episode is probably the one when Tina reads "friend fiction" in front of her school. That is 100% comedy gold.

This show is just OUTSTANDING

Dragon Ball Z follows the adventures of Goku who, along with the Z Warriors, defends the Earth against evil. The action adventures are entertaining and reinforce the concept of good versus evil. Dragon Ball Z teaches valuable ...read more.

Dragon Ball Z is just the best show ever created, and I think it should be #1, but the Simpsons is a cool show to. But DBZ has so much action and fighting and lots of character development, and a good story, Plus, Tom & Jerry is a good show, but a fight isn't really a cat chasing and mouse around, plus evan if there are fights, no one dies and no one gets SERIOUSLY injured like in DBZ. Plus it's not a fight if the same person wins every time.

Dragon ball z has action and little bit of comedy. It is not only that because the characters develop and grow older. Just like Goku who is there when he was 12 and he should 28 and his son gotten and gohan. It has so much action that even though you watch it so many times you still get exited seeing. It was so extremely popular in Japan they couldn't stop showing it. They made new series called dragon Ball super aND movie called resurrection of Frieza that made 4 million dollars in its first showing in Japan. So you should go to YouTube and watch my favorite fight gohan versus cell or watch it on adult swim at 8 on Saturday or 12. Too Nami show it twice

The Simpsons is a show by show cartoon, so one doesn't have a yearning of anticipation for the next episode. Dragonball tells a great story that leaves you wanting more after every episode, that's why Dragonball is better for anyone who watches from the beginning while Simpsons are better for a casual observer.

YES! Dragon ball z for life! DBZ and sailor moon are my most favorite Animes ever... Plus Goku and chichi are my most favorite anime couple ever <3 by the way DBZ is waay better then Family guy in my opinion

The series revolves around the chaotic suburban everyday life of a boy named Lincoln Loud and his ten sisters, to which he survives as the middle child and only son in a large family of eleven children. ...read more.

Even though this show began like 2 months ago, I am impressed how it really gets my attention for some reason, the main character of the series is a boy called Lincoln loud, who has to survive his childhood with his 10 sisters all living together in one single house, the plot is so well organized and it has amazing animation, with each episode having Lincoln coming out with a plan in order to do something without his sisters ruining it. highly recommended!

"Amazing" is not the first word that comes to mind when looking at that animation. - LordDovahkiin

I'm going to start calling this show " The cartoon that saved Nickelodeon". - TheCartoonManiac

Nick does not still suck, SpongeBob is getting a lot better and The Loud House is here. - PeeledBanana

I cannot describe my love for this show! I had extremely lovable characters, exceptional voice acting, distinctive animation, interesting plot, EVERYTHING I LOVE AND EXPECT FROM A SHOW!

Ths show can kick spongebob's ass

42 Dexter's Laboratory Dexter's Laboratory Dexter's Laboratory is an American comic science fiction animated television series created by Genndy Tartakovsky for Cartoon Network, and the first of the network's Cartoon Cartoons. The show is about a kid scientist named Dexter that has a sister named Dee Dee that keeps breaking into his lab.

This should be WAY higher. Dexter's Lab is a cartoon classic.

This is the (2nd) best cartoon that has ever been aired on Cartoon Network.

It's a cartoon worth remembering. It had great comedy, funny storylines, and quirky characters. It was one of the best shows shown on Cartoon Network. It was great! - MissRWBY202

On of the best cartoon classics ever to be aired. A brother-sister relationship wrapped up in comic adventure, spiced up with evil encounters from Mandark. One of the best childhood memories I will relish for ever.

43 Kim Possible Kim Possible Kim Possible is an American animated children's television series created by Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle for Disney Channel.

How is this so low? It's one of the best cartoon shows Disney has EVER created! The characters are all amazing and the show is overall fun. Top 10 material easily! - sofiav

This show is so good! The greatest part about it was that it didn't matter if Kim was a guy or a girl, she could do anything. I'm pretty sure boys watched this too.

Very interesting show and yes it should be in the top ten

I love that show. Kim is such a smart girl. Ron is really funny. Drakken is extremely annoying and Shego is also annoying as well. If any too characters had to be dropped from the show, it would be Drakken and Shego.

44 The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius is an American computer animated television series created by John A. Davis. It is the first spin-off to the 2001 film Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.

Jimmy Neutron should be number 1 for sure. All episodes are amazing, the characters are greatly designed and the plot is fantastic! If you want to see more lists about Jimmy Neutron, check: Top 10 Best Episodes Of Jimmy Neutron.

One of my favorite nostalgic classics. Despite being sometimes over the top, it still is one of the most interesting half-hour animated comedies out there. It's also great because it's one of the few 3D-animated kid cartoons out there. But anyways, delving into the show. Every character in this show gets a laugh out of me. Sheen, Carl, Jimmy, Hugh, and Bolbi are some of the funniest characters not only on this show, but also in the span of all cartoons as well. I don't know about anyone else, but those characters as well as others are enough to have me enjoying this show at any age. - ripcurl113

One of the greatest cartoons on Nickelodeon, period.

TERRIBLE SHOW!

48 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987)

Although I love all the versions of TMNT, the old version is the best one and always will be.

This cartoon started a lifelong obsession for me. So much so that I have a Raphael tattoo on my leg. I'm really surprised this is not in the top 10 seeing as it spawned pretty much a cultural phenomenon - Johnnyt800

That his great

The best everything love 2003. As well 2012. sucks.so bad. They are cool. Not 2012.
