WHO DOESN’T REMEMBER THE FLINTSTONES, SCOOBY-DOO , TOM AND JERRY? THEY WERE THE ORIGINAL CARTOON NETWORK SHOWS WE ALL LOVED! Those were the best Cartoon Network shows of all times!
Cartoon Network Channel used to primarily air only Hanna-Barbera cartoons (Scooby Doo) but started airing MGM cartoons when it gained popularity. The Cartoon Network has evolved over the years but here the 10 best Cartoon Network shows that we still love.
#10 Johnny Bravo
If you ever want to learn how to NOT impress a girl, Johnny is your guy. We could never get enough of his muscle flexing and his hilarious attempts at getting women to date him. The show was immensely popular for it’s humor and occasional pop culture references, and can be deemed as one of the best Cartoon Network shows.
#9 Kids Next Door
Ever wondered how cool it would be if you and your gang could be agents of a secret organization and had a fully furnished HQ? Well, then this was one of the best Cartoon Network shows on air.
The show follows the adventures of five kids who belong to a secret organization of the titular name who fight against adult/teenager tyranny. Each member is assigned a code name or code number and the series is an account of the missions undertaken by KND’s numbah one and his colleagues number 2, number 3, number 4 and number 5.
Meet George Jetson…. The space-age counterpart of the Flintstones, the Jetsons live in Orbit city, in the year 2062. This series follows the lives of George Jetson and his family and their interactions with space age gadgets and their in-house maid Rosy, who is a robot.
#7 The Flintstones
While the Jetsons were set in the future, Flintstones was set in the stone age. The Flintstones is the oldest and most successful Hanna-Barbera production. Fred Flintstone and his family live in the town of Bedrock. Fred’s best friend is Barney. Though the series were set in the stone age, their challenges depict the real world challenges faced by us today.
#6 Ed, Edd and Eddy
Created by Danny Antonucci, Ed, Edd and Eddy is about three boys who are constantly looking to make some money in order to buy their favourite candy: Jawbreakers. Danny Antonucci primarily made cartoons for adults. The show was a challenge for him but may be that’s why Ed, Edd and Eddy were different from its counterparts. Very rare but the show did contain some inappropriate jokes.
#5 Courage: The cowardly dog
Muriel and Eustace, an elderly couple, live in the middle of nowhere with their pink beagle, Courage. The trio were often troubled by ghosts, zombies, mad scientists and even aliens and it was Courage’s responsibility to find courage and ave the family. This was one of the few Cartoon Show series that was nominated for an Academy Award. The dog was definitely loved adored by young audience.
#4 The Powerpuff Girls
This deadly trio of Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup is much more intimidating than one would think. This bunch can beat up an array of scary monsters and criminals and look incredibly cute while doing it. The girls owe the credit for their creation to Professor Utonium who created the trio with sugar, spice, everything nice and a large volume of Chemical X (by mistake).
#3 Dexter’s Laboratory
This show is the reason why in our childhood we thought that nerdy is the new cool. Dexter’s laboratory is a story about a freakishly intelligent boy who had a state of the art laboratory hidden behind the cupboard in his bedroom. His work and creations are continuously disturbed and destroyed by his sister Deedee and he is in a constant war with his arch rival, Mandark. The show had a number of spin-offs like Monkey and The Justice Friends.
Though Cartoon network aired a number of spin-offs and modern versions of the infamous franchise none was as successful and widely praised as the original series that followed the adventures of the gang that comprised of Scooby, Shaggy, Velma, Daphne and Fred. Scooby and Shaggy made a hilarious duo whose only concern was food. With his iconic “Scooby Dooby Doo” howl and love for “Scooby Snacks”, this Great Dane is one of the most loved cartoon characters of all time.
#1 Tom and Jerry
Anyone who has lived knows Tom and Jerry , they’re one of the best Cartoon Network shows .This is a timeless series loved by everyone. The hilarious cat-mouse chase between the two rivals was the crux of the show. While arch enemies, the duo used to ally together when one of them used to get in trouble. The show won seven Academy Awards.
