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

Kids have wonderful senses of imagination. Plenty of us spent our childhoods coming up with elaborate storylines for all of our toys to carry out. Many of these stories came from the television shows we all grew up watching. Kids fantasy shows revealed what was possible with storytelling. Growing up, we all believed in unicorns, monsters, brave knights, and epic quests. That love for fantasy never went away, considering people's love for Game of Thrones. That show may not be appropriate for kids, but all the series on this list are. 

Avatar: The Last Airbender was one of the most popular children's shows in the 2000s. It had much more sophisticated storytelling than other cartoons of the period, and it had plenty of humor to go along with the action. Shows like Adventure Time were wonderfully creative. What kid watching that show didn't wish he or she had a dog that could transform into any size or shape to go on whimsical adventures with?

These are the best fantasy kids shows of all time. Some went off the air years ago while others you can still tune into. One thing is certain across the board: they are all magical. Vote for your favorite fantasy shows that are kid-appropriate below.
