The Top Ten

1 Phineas & Ferb

I used to love this show, long ago. I watched it from day 1. Yes, it's repetitive, but I still liked it. Up until after the movie. That's when the show got so bad, and yet they are still making new episodes. They should just end it already. - Minecraftcrazy530

Repetitive-but done in an extremely charming fashion-in a way that doesn't really get old for me! - keycha1n

I sadly have to agree... I loved this show for the first 2 and a half seasons, and of course all the special episodes... but then it got too repetitive. 'I know what we're gonna do today, Candace freaks out, song and dance number, where's perry? ' Still, one of my favorite shows thougj.

3 Scooby Doo

Like fairly oddparents, it's a long running show and it has the same plot. The gang goes on a mystery van to go on a trip. Then something weird happens. A monster came out of nowhere and ruins everything. Next, the gang goes into a wild goose chase and tries to figure it out what was the person who was hiding in a disguise. Then at the end, the gang knows the culprit and the person reveals themselves through the disguise and explains why they did it.

The T.V. series is a little bit repetitive. How? In the beginning a experiment pod gets wet by water and gets activated. Then the experiment causes trouble and Lilo and Stitch tries to capture it. Gantu gets in the way and tries to get the experiment but Lilo and Stitch defeats him at the end. Then Lilo nicknames the experiment and tries to find one true place.

10 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.

The reason why I put on this list is because it's kind of formulaic as the series progress. First, Mordecai and Rigby do something stupid and then weird stuff happens at the park. (Sometimes someone else cause weird stuff to happen). Benson gets mad and yells at them. Skips explains what's going on and Mordecai and Rigby saves the day. Also There's a lot of running gags such as Muscle Man's mom jokes, Benson's anger issues, Mordecai and Rigby being lazy or stupid (Mostly Rigby), Pop's laughter, Mordecai and Rigby play video games, etc. - creativelover93
