Top 25 Animated Series

After viewing IGN's top 100 Animated series I have decided to make my own. I tryed to combine my personal favorite with what is most popular and best rated on to one list. I only put shows on this list I have seen so there is not everything on this list. Keep in mind when it comes down to it there is no real best just shows you remembered and liked for different reasons.
