There have been many fantastic animated TV shows throughout the history, but which ones are the best? Some people think that cartoons are just for children, but there are many that have frequent themes that even adults will enjoy. From classic animated series like "Looney Tunes," "The Flintstones," and "The Jetsons" to the modern day hits of "The Simpsons" and "South Park," there are many great cartoons available.

The cartoon was created during the silent movie era as a short that was shown before movies. They gained even more popularity when the talkies came around, most notable of these were made by the Walt Disney company and Warner Bros with "Merry Melodies" (which later became "Looney Tunes"). With the invention of the television, cartoons and animated programs finally found a realm in which to flourish.

This is a list of the best cartoons of all time, including series that are long gone and ones that are still going today. Vote up your favorite or make your own version.
