List Rules Vote up your favorite animated shows on MTV.

This list contains information about the best MTV cartoons, ranked by none other than your votes! This is a list that's LONG over due, because over the years, MTV has aired a variety of the most humorous, inspirational, and hilarious cartoons (OK, call them MTV's animated series if you prefer to go more highbrow). You can vote on this list of the best animations that have aired on MTV and MTV2. Some of these cartoons also aired on Nickelodeon (which, fun fact, is owned by the same network).

So which cartoons make the cut? Of course, Mike Judge's Beavis and Butt-head made the cut (created in 1993). This MTV show is definitely one of the funniest MTV shows, and because it's so popular, it was brought back in 2011. You'll also find Daria (a spin-off of Beavis and Butt-head) because Daria, Jane, and Tiffany are amazing and they basically define 90's angst. 

Celebrity Death Match is another favorite MTV show among fans. This stop-animation series was created by Eric Fogel in 1998. Celebrity Death Match was later resurrected and broadcast on MTV 2 from 2006 – 2007. So where does your favorite MTV show fall on this list? Be sure to vote it to the top and share your thoughts in the comments section!
