1. Ed, Edd n Eddy (1999–2008)
TV-Y7 | 30 min | Animation, Comedy, Family
The off-the-wall, day-to-day life of three friends who have exactly the same name.
It knows what it is and what it's trying to be: an entertaining cartoon. That's all it is, and that's all you're going to get out of it. An entertaining cartoon. But it has perfected this down to a science, and remains the only one of the original Cartoon Cartoons to still be aired, simply because it is an entertaining cartoon. It does what it does really well.
2. Avatar: The Last Airbender (2003–2008)
TV-Y7-FV | 23 min | Animation, Action, Adventure
In a war-torn world of elemental magic, a young boy reawakens to undertake a dangerous mystic quest to fulfill his destiny as the Avatar, and bring peace to the world.
It treats it's cast with a lot of dignity and respect, allowing us to get inside their heads and enjoy them all the more as they make decisions or choices through out the arc. Not to mention the animation is wonderfully detailed, and story is really intense and gripping.
3. Pokémon (1997–2002)
24 min | Animation, Action, Adventure
Follows the adventure of Satoshi with his Pokemon, Pikachu and his friends to become the Pokemon master.
GOTTA CATH EM ALL, GOTTA CATHC EM ALL!
4. Xiaolin Showdown (2003–2006)
TV-Y7 | 30 min | Animation, Action, Adventure
A young Xiaolin monk named Omi with a giant yellow head leads a trio of other students to collect powerful items known as Shen Gong Wu while battling the evil Jack Spicer who is also after the artifacts
Wonderful characters, and despite being episodic maintained a story line, and you could often feel the pressure on top of stunning animation and a realistic fight between good and evil.
5. Batman: The Animated Series (1992–1995)
TV-PG | 23 min | Animation, Action, Adventure
The Dark Knight battles crime in Gotham City with occasional help from Robin and Batgirl.
The literal pioneer of all modern animation.
6. The Ren & Stimpy Show (1991–1996)
TV-Y7 | 30 min | Animation, Comedy
The gross misadventures of a hyper chihuahua and a stupid cat.
Strange, strange, strange. The humor is good, but the straight up strangeness is gold.
7. The Powerpuff Girls (1998–2005)
TV-Y7-FV | 30 min | Animation, Action, Comedy
Three super-powered little girls constantly save the world (or at least the city of Townsville) from monsters, would-be conquerers and a few other gross things.
One of the coolest shows ever made for kids, yet still having the absolute girliest name ever. On top of that, the characters were likable and the villains were a ton of fun.
8. Courage the Cowardly Dog (1999–2002)
TV-Y7 | 11 min | Animation, Comedy, Family
The offbeat adventures of Courage, a cowardly dog who must overcome his own fears to heroically defend his unknowing farmer owners from all kinds of dangers, paranormal events and menaces that appear around their land.
Each episode was like a mini-horror movie for kids, which is something to respect for just being new, as well as having fu while doing it.
9. Teen Titans (2003–2006)
TV-14 | 30 min | Animation, Action, Adventure
A team of five teenaged superheroes save the world from many villains around their city while experiencing things normal teens face today.
On top of having an all-star rogues gallery, it was also a much darker cartoon than most are used to and actually made Robin cool. That's not easy.
10. The Secret Saturdays (2008–2010)
TV-Y7 | Animation, Adventure, Family
An adventuresome family of experts in the field of creatures known as cryptids attempts to protect their secrets and powers from the forces of evil.
It was not episodic, with a compelling story and characters, as well as a somewhat tragic ending. At times, it could even be a bit frightening for younger children.
