Kids love to laugh. While their parents may try to get them to watch educational programming, kids just want to change the channel to watch Spongebob Squarepants. Kids comedy shows have one mission in mind: to get milk to come flying out of your nose from laughing so hard. For years now, there has been no shortage of excellent comedy programming for children.
Nickelodeon has earned a reputation over the years for producing top-notch sitcoms and sketch shows geared toward children. The original was Kenan & Kel, which was one of the most popular sitcoms on the network in the 1990s. Some of the more recent offerings from the channel include The Thundermans, Game Shakers, and Henry Danger. The Disney Channel, Cartoon Network, and other channels dedicate themselves to quality content for kids, and great kids comedy is a big part of that.
A lot of children's TV series utilize comedy and comedic characters to an extent. For this list, we will focus on shows that are explicitly sitcoms or cartoons that utilize comedy first and foremost. With that in mind, these are the best kids comedies on television of all time. For the older shows, think back on your childhood to remember which shows had you on the floor laughing until tears were rolling down your cheeks - and for the newer shows, vote up what keeps the current kid generation giggling.
