List Rules Cartoons and animated series that originally aired on Nickelodeon or Nick Jr.

Nickelodeon cartoons are some of the best on cable and have made Nickelodeon the go-to source of basic cable children's entertainment. While Nickelodeon was known for its live action shows in the 80s and early 90s, it started to shift its programming focus over to cartoons. They even created their own cartoon company called, "Nicktoons." 

"Nicktoons" introduced the world to such famous Nickelodeon cartoons as Rugrats, Ahhhhh Real Monsters, Doug, and much more. It wasn't until 2000 that Nickelodeon really started to pick up steam with their massive hit, Spongebob Squarepants. Spongebob was so popular it became synonymous with cartoons in general. In addition to Spongebob there are many of other memorable Nickelodeon cartoon characters from these Nick cartoons.

Since then Nickelodeon has made cartoon hits as well as some off-kilter toons like The Fairly Odd Parents, Invader Zim, and Ren and Stimpy. Nick is also the creator of some cutting edge programming like Avatar: The Last Airbender and its current follow up, Avatar: Legend of Korra.

Nickelodeon might not make the live action shows that some of us grew up loving anymore, but they certainly have made up for it by producing some of the best cartoons around. Vote for your favorite old and new Nickelodeon cartoons here on this Nickelodeon shows list!
