The Top Ten

1 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.

Possibly one of the greatest animated shows of all time

Not really that good, targeted towards 7yo's it seems. repetitive and cliche - EliHbk

10:Super Mario World
9:Pac Man and the Ghostly Adventures
8: Angry Birds Toons
7: Yokai watch season 1
6: Rabbids Invasion
5: Kirby Right Back at Ya!
4: Eartworm Jim
3:Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog
2: Super Mario bros Super Show
1: Pokemon
Trust me. it is amazing!

2 Earthworm Jim

Possibly the most underrated cartoon of all time. - xandermartin98

3 Kirby Right Back At Ya

So many memories of watching this show. It also had some really good life lessons for kids and was still action-packed and funny. Hopefully all of the episodes get released on DVD someday.

I liked it, but it's not near as good as the games. Plus, a lot of the characters are portrayed inaccurately. Especially King Dedede, since he's an absolute sadist in this show. - Garythesnail

This show is probably the most underrated kids show ever

4 Sonic Sat AM
5 Megaman
6 Super Mario World Super Mario World Super Mario World is an American animated musical comedy television series loosely based on the Super NES video game of the same name.

I watched this show, it was actually entertainingly mediocre. I could watch this all day! - EliHbk

One of the first Video Game Based shows. Still one of the best.

That's MAMA LUIGI to you Mario!

7 Castlevania
8 The Super Mario Bros. Super Show The Super Mario Bros. Super Show

Theme song stuck in my head.

9 F-Zero: GP Legend F-Zero: GP Legend

Also a great show...
aside from the English dub, that is - xandermartin98

10 Sonic X Sonic X Sonic X is a Japanese anime television series created by TMS Entertainment and based on the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series published by Sega.

Great show, needs a game for it, and a reboot.

The Contenders

11 Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, also known as Pac-World, is an American/Japanese/Canadian computer-animated comedy-adventure television series featuring Namco's classic video game character Pac-Man.

This was ok - EliHbk

12 The Adventures of Super Mario Bros 3

This one is better than SMBSS and Super Mario World. Great storylines, great songs, and everything. Oh and Ludwig has the most iconic laugh in the Mario franchise. - asantalo

13 Viva Pinata
14 The Legend Of Zelda

Hey! Excuse me, princess! - Nirocart

15 Sonic Boom Sonic Boom
16 The Adventures Of Sonic The Hedgehog The Adventures Of Sonic The Hedgehog
17 Saturday Supercade

Divided into cartoon segments (Donkey Kong, Q*Bert, Frogger, Pitfall and Donkey Kong Junior). By the time season 2 aired, Donkey Kong and Q*Bert were joined by Space Ace (created by famed animator Don Bluth) and Kangaroo. Sadly, Saturday SuperCade was canceled due to the video game crash in 1983. Several years later, Mario came back to television alongside his brother Luigi in Super Mario Bros. Super Show but Donkey Kong had his own cartoon: Donkey Kong Country (based on a Super Nintendo game of the same name). - playstationfan66
