The Top Ten
1 Charlie the Unicorn

Hey Charlie! Wake up! Yeah, silly sleepyhead, wake up! What the heck is it? Is the forest on fire? No, we found a map to Candy Mountain! Laugh out loud!

When I was in elementary school, my friends and I would act out episodes of Charlie the Unicorn at recess! It was SO MUCH FUN!

Oh man, I haven't seen an episode in forever! But they're the best. I've got them memorized.

2 Potter Puppet Pals

Hilarious! It'll satisfy the needs of Potter-hungry fans who are still shocked they finished the series so soon. I should know. I was one of them, and Potter Puppet Pals rescued me from the cold, dark, harsh reality I was trapped in.

I remember this. At my camp a few years ago, everyone sang the mysterious ticking noise song.

The bleeping curse words are one of the episodes.

3 The Evolution of Dance

So awesome! One of my life goals is to master the evolution of dance routine!

4 Numa Numa

Yes, I was just watching this. It's so funny! Wish I could've lived back then.

Laugh out loud! Have you seen the Numa Numa guy's mouth? It's huge!

You should see Numa Numa conducting a marching band! Actual video!

5 Don't Hug Me I'm Scared

I will always love you, Robin (duck guy). You will always be my special one.

I am absolutely 100% OBSESSED with DHMIS. I love almost all of them. RIP, Robin. You really did kill all those pesky bees. *cries*

It's got a catchy song, a twist, horror, and comedy. What's not to love? - Unnamed Google User Remade

I thought we agreed to never be creative again!

8 Shrek is love, Shrek is life

It hurts a lot, but I do it for Shrek.

He looks my father straight in the eye.

It's all ogre now.

This story has changed me emotionally and physically. I cried at the sad parts, was scared at the spooky parts, and cheered at the happy parts.

This video is a classic, and hopefully, we get a movie adaptation.

He changed my life. Shrek is love.

9 Funny Spongebob Video - Grandma's Kisses

This video is inappropriately sick, which is why it is so funny.

10 Nyan Cat

What's better than a flying cat in space farting out rainbows with his belly as a Pop-Tart?

The Contenders
11 Keyboard Cat
12 Me at the Zoo

When YouTube shuts down, there will be a video called "me leaving the zoo."

The first video ever!

Also, by the way, why is a Katy Perry music video at 16?

13 Zombie and Squid get 3 jobs and get grounded
14 Shoes
15 Katy Perry - Roar
16 Postman Pat Rude Version
17 The Scottish Peppa Pig
