Top TV Channels for Kids and Teens


The Top Ten

1 Disney Channel Disney Channel

Disney Channel has sucked for as long as I can remember. The shows aren't funny and they pretty much rip off Nickelodeon. The only good shows were Phineas and Ferb, Wizards of Waverly Place and Good Luck Charlie.

Best channel ever! No offense but I really don't like other channels. Don't you dare tell me I am dumb or an idiot because it. JUST SAYING! Thumbs up if you agree with me!

Full of energy. For teens because of ANT Farm, Jessie or Zack and Cody and for kids because of... It's Disney! (Cars, Mickey Mouse, Phineas and Ferb... You know... ) - roznar97

I really like this channel, it’s AMAZING. Especially shows like: Jessie, Wizards of Waverley Palace, Good Luck Charlie and many more. Although, this channel deserves to be number 2 as nick is slightly better.

2 Nickelodeon Nickelodeon Nickelodeon is an American basic cable and satellite television network launched on December 1, 1977, and is owned by Viacom through Viacom Media Networks and based in New York City.

Nickelodeon has really good actors, the shows are hilarious, the cartoons are fun to watch even for teens, the actors are pretty unlike other channels, and much more! It's so enjoyable for kids and teens!

There are some amazing shows like Victorious, ICarly and Instant Mom. It created big stars such as Ariana Grande. Recently, the shows haven't been great. WITs Academy (spin-off from a really bad show Every Witch Way), Talia in the Kitchen, Neighbours and Home and Away which isn't even age suitable. There is this new one coming out about a princess from another kingdom and it doesn't look good. Its going downhill and if you compare with Disney channel, Nickelodeon is a bit babyish. I don't mean to sound rude, but that's my opinion.

A place for teens and kids. Creative D.S. shows like iCarly, Drake and Josh or Victorious and classic cartoons without end like SpongeBob and Fairly OddParents. - roznar97

3 Cartoon Network Cartoon Network Cartoon Network is an American basic cable and satellite television channel that is owned by the Turner Broadcasting System division of Time Warner.

This channel (in my opinion) is the only channel with anything good left on it. (Although, Disney has star VS the forces of evil and Gravity falls, which are some of my favorites. However I'm not going to give a channel the best channel rating just for two good shows.) I personally think that animated shows can be more creative and adventurous, which is why I enjoy Cartoon Network so much. Steven universe with its beautiful animation and amazing storyline, The amazing world of Gumball with its humor, (seriously there isn't one episode of that show that doesn't make me laugh) and adventure time with its story and wonder. Personally, if people wanna watch those mindless sitcoms they can. I'm not gonna bash on someone just because they watch Nickelodeon or Disney. But I feel like Cartoon Network is the only channel trying to produce something good. Nick and Disney have the mind set to throw any old recycled plot to their 8 year old audience. But who I am to complain when those mindless ...more

Disney Channel is nothing but a bunch of played out sitcoms that will drive most people who aren't little girls insane if it's on for too long. Nickelodeon is nothing but trashy sitcoms and childish cartoons these days. Cartoon Network is the best kids Channel because it is the only kids Channel left with creativity and good cartoons that teens can enjoy too with shows like Regular Show and Adventure Time. Steven Universe is another creative Show with a good storyline. The Amazing World of Gumball is also a great Show when it comes to Spongebob type humor. Everything else is decent, but the shows I mentioned are the best they offer. Let's also not forget Cartoon Network has the best late night block, Adult Swim which currently plays King of The Hill, Bobs Burgers, The Cleveland Show, American Dad, and Family Guy every night as well as their own great animated and live action shows. Plus every Saturday night is Toonami which plays anime. And Cartoon Network also doesn't have an ...more

First of all the only thing Disney Channel has most of the time isn't cartoons it's just these dumb cheesy shows nobody likes Nickelodeon is just a mix of Cartoon Network and Disney Channel but if you want shows that appeal to both adults and children and to make the whole family laugh it's Cartoon Network why well they take chances and yes they have made mistakes like when they wanted Cartoon Network to become Disney Channel by putting on shows like dude what would happen and destroy build destroy now ignoring that did you know Nickelodeon was going to take adventure time well you can all rest easy they didn't like the show and now it's the most watched show and who do you thank for having adventure time put on television that's right Cartoon Network PS Cartoon Network appeals to both genders unlike Disney who appeals mostly to girls and women Cartoon Network should be the best show and should be #1

It was good until they started airing the same show for hours on end

4 Disney XD Disney XD Disney XD is an American digital cable and satellite television channel that is owned by the Disney Channels Worldwide unit of the Disney–ABC Television Group, itself a unit of the Disney Media Networks division of The Walt Disney Company.

Disney, please give more money for Disney original shows! The funniest side of Disney ever! "Kick Buttowski", "I'm in the band"... - roznar97

Really good! Only programmes I like are Mighty Med, Lab Rats and Lab Rats Elite Force. Its only 3 programs that I like but for me, there are the BEST! Love all the actors and actresses in those 3 programmes

Disney is not like boomerang or teen nick because they show new episodes like new gravity falls which is bringing Disney alive still and it shows reruns of phineas and ferb which was a good show

I like this channel! I really like there shows.some of them are phinias and
fern,lab rats elite force, gravity falls and star vs the forces of evil

5 Nicktoons Nicktoons

This channel was my CHILDHOOD! It used to be called Nicktoons Network, which had modern Nicktoons and classic Nicktoons. It also had great acquired programs like Martin Mystery, The Secret Show and Corneil and Bernie. It was the perfect kid network, having thumb wrestling tournaments and commercials with Nicktoons in them.

, how is this not better than Nickelodeon! It has all of my favorite shows, of all time: avatar, power rangers, ren and stimpy, dragon ball gt, and z kai. And a lot of other great shows!

Nicktoons is better then the actual real channel: Nickelodeon. I say this because Nickelodeon In my option has made so huge mistakes over the years. Such as discontinuing The Mighty B, Danny Phantom, and Invader Zim. (The list goes on) this network on the other hand (even if by Nick) still holds the most memorable cartoons.

To be honest, it's a great channel, but with shows like Younger and Impastor I wouldn't say it is for kids... - roznar97

I had to add this because it gave me memories when I was a baby it had good shows in my time but then again babies watch anything. BUT it had good shows like wow wow wubbzy (don't know how to spell) and blues clues. Good times.


Really that’s where Dora is on.Blues Clues on the other hand is good but Dora is an evil mind killer


10 PBS Kids PBS Kids PBS Kids is the brand for most of the children's programming aired by the Public Broadcasting Service in the United States.

Very good! So much better than the mindless shows on the other "kids" stations.

Kids can learn vocabulary and math for this program

Bland. Disgraceful, and Everything bad.

I love it's much better than "magical" and mindless Disney

11 Teennick Teennick TeenNick is an American digital cable and satellite television channel that is owned by Viacom Kids & Family Group, a unit of the Viacom Media Networks division of Viacom.

Teen nick is just like boomerang but worse. It has old nick shows that are not animated and reruns them. It does have some inappropriate words but someone like me a pre-teen will like this channel

Teenick has awesome old Nickelodeon shows like full house, which is addicting, funny, realistic, yet sends a message.

Don't criticize me

Teennick and Nickelodeon best teen/kid networks ever!

go teens

12 Teletoon Retro Teletoon Retro Teletoon Retro was a Canadian English-language Category B specialty channel owned by Corus Entertainment.

Like Boomerang, it's also a good idea! A Canadian T.V. channel for the best classic cartoons like "The Flintstones" or "Scooby-Doo Show". - roznar97

13 Teletoon Teletoon Teletoon is a Canadian English-language Category A specialty channel owned by Corus Entertainment that broadcasts animated programming.

Yep I'm picking it because I only like one show and that is ( drum roll) total drama but the only problem is I'm from the UK so YouTube is my options to watch it TT /

Good old and only the good new cartoons of Cartoon Network and a lot of creative and super original shows also. (like 6teen, Total Drama, Stoked... ) - roznar97

It's a Canadian channel, I don't have it on my T.V. :(. But they have really good shows. - Catacorn

They have good shows like:
Total Drama
Untalkative Bunny
The Tofus
Good Cartoon Network shows

15 CBBC CBBC CBBC is a BBC children's television strand aimed at children aged from 6 to 12. BBC programming aimed at under six year old children is broadcast on the CBeebies channel.

The best T.V. channel I ever watched as a kid growing up! Also I loved to watch Disney Channel but not as much!

Honestly, I'm really lucky to have this channel in my life. However, some shows are a bit childish, bur shows like Young Dracula, Dragons, World's End, Wolfblood, Eve and The Dumping Ground make it my most favourite channel of all!

It is the only kids show that isn't goofy and lame.

I always watch this channel

18 Boomerang Boomerang Boomerang is an American digital and satellite television channel owned and distributed by Time Warner through Turner Broadcasting.

Boomerang is like a blast from the past. I'm not trying to be an 00's hater when I say te cartoons nowadays suck. Big time. Uncle Grandpa? What is that even? Sanjay and Craig is weird, the Breadwinners is just... Wow... Clarence is even worse, and I hate Teen Titans Go the most. It completely ruins the image of one of the coolest shows ever. If you're gonna make new shows, go ahead. But please refrain from ruining the classics.

Boomerang is like combination of all them. Yea it's the best channel. Best cartoons and what we need else? That's all about it yea

Good old cartoons. That's all. - roznar97

If you are an adult and you don,t want you kids watching inappropriate T.V. this is the channel you want there is no APPROPRIATE WORDS AT ALL.there is scooby doo,tom and jerry, and more keep watching and I should know

The best EVER for young children. My girls learned so much from it and love it. It's so much better than watching cartoons all day.

Great program. My kids all loved watching it, the little one still loves some shows even though she is 5.

Great for babies. That's how they grow.

I want to watch children's channel.
