List RulesVote up the best original TV shows that have ever debuted on Cartoon Network.

Cartoon Network shows have been bringing some of the funniest and most action-packed cartoons that both kids and adults can enjoy since the '90s. This list of the top Cartoon Network TV series (even classic CN shows), both current and canceled series, includes the date when each cartoon first aired as well as lists of the casts of actors. The best Cartoon Network TV programs of all time include the most viewed shows on Cartoon Network, as this list covers the entire history of the network. From old Cartoon Network shows like Courage the Cowardly Dog and Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy to new series like We Bear Bears, Infinity Train, and DC Super Hero Girls are included on this list along with many more.

With so many great cartoons in the 2000s and 2010s what's your favorite Cartoon Network show? Adventure Time might top your list of CN shows. Adventure Time follows the epic adventures of Jake the Dog and Finn the Human throughout the Land of Ooo. These two best friends fight evil, save princesses, and still have time to chow down and chill out. Have any of underrated favorites been overlooked? Other classic shows include Mordecai and Rigby, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Dexter's Laboratory, and all of your other childhood favorites.
