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

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

22 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!

I could not get into this show. I'm sorry I'm really bored by this show. I'm not even talking about new episodes, I'm talking about the show as a whole - Gangem

23 The Flintstones The Flintstones The Flintstones is the first animated prime-time American television series. It was broadcast from September 30, 1960 to April 1, 1966 on ABC.

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.

It's so funny! They use a tortoise as a dustbin.

24 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.

Love the show. Has hilarious plot and it can have a toilet joke, but the animation and the three-dimensional characters make up for it.

Gumball: The upbeat, jokester always getting in trouble.

Darwin: The happy one you always wanted as a plush toy.

Anais: The smart, problem solving 4 year old with the most brains out of the whole family.

Nicole/Mom: The strong one with a lot of backstory put into her. She can be demonic at times, but her great personality makes up for it.

Richard: The most lovable character in the show. Sure, he can be stupid at times, but that's what make him so funny, like when he played the game
Calculator (pronounced cal-coo-latore).

Overall, a great show with amazing characters, funny plot, and three-dimensional characters. - SionicRelations

25 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!

Definitely best all-around cartoon with a little bit of everything. Only 3 years in by the time it ends it's run it'll be number one.

26 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!

This is hilarious! The babies are always having their butts showing

The original one was both Creepy and Funny.

27 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.

Best cartoon in the world. It's graphics and everything is so cool. I love Pokémon.

28 My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a children's animated fantasy television series developed by Lauren Faust, produced by Hasbro Studios and DHX Media Vancouver . 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

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.

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!

Hell no! HOW THIS CRAP EVEN GET ON LIST ALL THE SONG IS MY LITTLE OH MY LITTLE PONY. ALSO the character is dumb to it said once upon a time there is kingdom of pony. and there is a pony and a dragon like kid wait... WHAT WHERE THE DARGON COME FROM?

29 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.

I love this show and the art style :)

although the reboot is really bad - wrests

31 Samurai Jack Samurai Jack Samurai Jack is an American action-adventure chanbara animated series created by Genndy Tartakovsky for Cartoon Network. The series premiered on August 10, 2001, with a TV movie called The Premiere Movie, before ending in its fourth season on September 25, 2004, without concluding the story. A revival ...read more.

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

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? :(

The fact that this isn't higher is insulting. Samurai Jack is about as close to lightning in a bottle as you can get. The simple storytelling, fast action, and absolutely simple yet stellar animation makes this show a one of a kind. People forget that this show influenced other greats like Avatar or other modern shows.

Easily top 5. The strong characters like Jack, Aku, The Scotsman, and many more. The awesome settings, plot, and action. Plus the best villian of all time! This show should be at least Top 10.

32 Star vs. The Forces of Evil Star vs. The Forces of Evil Star vs. the Forces of Evil is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation.

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!

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

I love the action and the comedy in this series and the romantic push on the background really completes it, I am still searching for more series where there are 2 main characters that haves a tension like they have and really can't wait on the next season.

if you like the sort of secret romance on the background, you HAVE to give this a shot so you can fall in love with this.

ps the flags in s2 from ludo are AMAZING

33 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.

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.

Seth is actually trying to appeal to conservatives. After Brian. Seth is actually not at all too bad and Steve and roger are a perfect couple. Big improvement over family guy.

Why it's just #32? , it's better than shows like Fairly Odd Parents... Roger is funnier than Cosmo, Stan is less bad than Timmy... American Dad is like Futurama, Family Guy and The Simpsons!

35 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 was awesome 👏 and she still is. Ron was hilarious 😆 and he still makes me laugh 😆. I’ve always found Drakken annoying and I still find him annoying. I’ve always found Shego annoying and I still find her annoying.

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

I honestly love this show it should be #3

Why is this #38? This show is so under appreciated like more people need to watch this and see what an amazing show it was!

37 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.

Great humor, visuals, voice acting, and even stories. Yeah there isn’t a overarching plot but who cares when you have funny sketches!

38 Total Drama Island Total Drama Island Total Drama Island is a Canadian animated television series which premiered in Canada on Teletoon on July 8, 2007 and on June 5, 2008 in the U.S.

I love this show SO MUCH! I enjoy the characters, the comedy, and all the funny action! I wasn't a huge fan of season 2 and 4, but over-all THIS SHOW IS AMAZING! Come on guy like the other guy/girl said, VOTE TD!

(I LOVE Cody! )

This show is so original. I love the characters in this show and like how must of them have distinct personalities as well. It's underrated and deserves more spotlight and attention than it has gotten. I think the original cast is the best and some of my favorite characters are Noah, Owen, Tyler, Duncan, Izzy, Gwen, Lindsay, Harold, Geoff, Bridgette and Cody.

This should be in the top ten, this cartoon is so like a reality show

Total Drama is one of my all-time favorite cartoons. This show is also quite underrated and under-appreciated. The characters are unique and interesting, and the competition environment brings a lot of suspense and drama. My favorites have to be Bridgette, Courtney, Heather, Jasmine, Lindsay, Noah, and others. It deserves some recgonition and I would recommend checking it out.

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.

So good made me get the complete series set by shout factory

I like the wacky adventures of Rocko, and his buddies, Filburt and Heffer.

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!

I described the show "AMAZING," it has funny characters that you can relate to, amazing animation and the only decent show in Nickelodeon. I hate SpongeBob, but don't get your panties in a bunch. It's my opinion and everyone is entitled to it.
