Hey Arnold the Jungle Movie will premiere on Nickelodeon one week from today, so what better time than now to list my top 10 favorite Nicktoons? Me personally I’ve been more of a Cartoon Network guy but Nickelodeon has had it’s great cartoons too. Also these are based on my personal opinion.
10. The Legend of Korra: I really like Korra’s character development, starting as tough and abrasive to more wiser. I think it’s summed in one line from the episode Enemy at the Gates “Fighting is something the old me would do. That always made things worse. Let me talk with Kuvira. Maybe I can reason with her”.
9. KaBlam!: An very underrated show. Kablam is a show with different segments with different animation and style. Segments like Promethius and Bob and Action League Now are creative. It’s a little dated but still has nostalgia. My favorite segment is with the hosts Henry and June.
8. The Loud House: I’ve already talked about this show so I keep it short. I kind of compare this to Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. Both can be mean spirited at times but still has charm and a cute animation style.
7. Danny Phantom: This is what happens if you mix Ghostbusters with Spider Man. Didn’t see much of season 3 but I really do like season 1 and 2. I really do like Butch Hartman’s animation style and the theme song is badass and catchy. Am I the only one who thinks The Fairy OddParents and Danny Phantom take place in the same universe?
6. The Fairly OddParents: I think this show went down harder than SpongeBob. Before it was stripped of it’s pride, Fairy OddParents was a fun show. It’s pretty much what if the fairy godmother from Cinderella was married and was a TV show. It even had some great TV movies such as Abra Catastrophe, Channel Chasers, and Wishology.
5. Rocko’s Modern Life: Rocko’s Modern Life a very fun, and very wacky cartoon. It has so many innuendos that both kids and adults can laugh at. Wacky Delly is a way better show than Teen Titans Go. Also I will review Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling when it airs in 2018.
4. The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius: A animated series based on an animated movie that I think is just as good if not better than the movie. The CGI for the time was really good and the ideas were creative. The show also introduced the great cartoon character ever, Bolbi! Slap Slap Slap Clap Clap Clap.
3. SpongeBob SquarePants: SpongeBob is sort of the Mickey Mouse of Nickelodeon. He’s practically there mascot. I know SpongeBob hasn’t been as good as it started but that doesn’t mean I can ignore the old episodes and boy were the old episodes wonderful. Who could forget Pinhead, chocolate! or Sweet Victory? Let’s face it old SpongeBob might be the great Nickelodeon show ever!
2. Avatar: the Last Airbender: Thank you so much Nostalgia Critic for getting me to watch this show. It’s one of the most cinematic cartoons I’ve ever seen and in my opinion this is the Star Wars of cartoons. It has a great story, great characters, great world-building, comedy, and drama. It’s pretty much the perfect cartoon! This was at one point my favorite Nickelodeon show but after thinking it over, there is one other show that fits my interest more.
And my number 1 favorite Nickelodeon cartoon is……………………..
1. Hey Arnold: This isn’t just because the Jungle Movie is coming out. I remember watching it as a kid and even seeing the movie in theaters. In 2012 I discovered NickSplat which showed reruns of old cartoons and Hey Arnold is the one I watch the most. There’s just something about Hey Arnold that feels very down to earth and laid back yet still fun. The characters surrounding the city get there moment to shine and the show has great music. SpongeBob may be more memorable and Avatar may be more perfect but personally Hey Arnold is the Nicktoon I love the most.
What are your favorite Nicktoons? Feel free to comment and I’ll see you next week when I’ll see you all in the jungle. 😉
