List RulesVote up the best kids action shows that have aired on television.

Kids action shows can spark the imagination. A single series can make children believe they can grow up to be globe-trotting explorers or become an astronaut and travel to the farthest reaches of space. Action shows teach kids bravery and valor exist in all of us no matter how small we may be. Most importantly, they teach kids the value of friendship. And on top of everything else, action TV shows are just plain fun. These are the best kids action shows made for kids. Which ones did you grow up watching? 

Power Rangers followed a group of teenagers with attitude as they fought monsters from space. Which series did you follow? Were you a Power Rangers Beast Morphers fan, or did you prefer Power Rangers in Space? The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have also had several series over the years, and it's been thrilling to see Raphael, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Leonardo defeat Shredder time and time again. 

Which of these shows got your blood pumping the most? Vote for your favorites. With this list, kids in the future will know exactly what shows had the most fighting and adventure-seeking. The top action children's series are below, so get to voting!
