The Best Nickelodeon Cartoons of All Time

List Criteria: Cartoons and animated series that air or 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 it's live action shows in the 80s and early 90s, it started to shift it's programming focus over to cartoons. They even created their own cartoon company, "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.

What are the best shows on Nickelodeon? 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 also is the creator of some cutting edge programming like "Avatar: The Last Airbender" and it's 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 Nickelodeon Cartoon here.
