Nicely put together yet I disagree with the order.

I approve of this though, thats for sure.

Ben 10 more popular than Spongebob?

Homer still at number 1?
Now if this were the late 80s/90s then Homer would be number 1.

Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated was a crappy show and in no way would Scooby be on the list. Again, were this the 70s-90s, sure.

Generator Rex was one of the most badass shows, but he was no that popular at all, hence getting cancelled.

Your list isn't really about popularity, but more of who is your favorite in a Top 20 list. Do some actual research next time.

I agree with you entirely, well put.

popularity =/= favourite
Sahil  +   1053d ago
some will agree, some will disagree and that's how it goes.

I agree with you tho.

Now I see how those first gen Pokémon fanboys feel like. Are the new Scooby-Doo shows good, or is nostalgia stopping me from liking the newer Scooby-Doo, and always liking the old Scooby "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?" show? I watched a few movies from early last decade like the one where they're on a boat with Freddy's parents, and another one involving Tikis and Menehunes, but they weren't special or anything like that... I did like the live action movies though.

And what about Spongebob? I admit I haven't watched the newer episodes since the special where 8 new episodes were shown back to back (or something like that, it's the one where Patrick becomes a girl and everyone falls in love him). I didn't find those episodes funny... AT ALL. Again, might just be nostalgia and probably thinking I'm too old for Spongebob...

I do like that Numba 1 (Heck YES!!!), Bloo (AWESOME!!!!!!!), Ed (I miss these three scammers...), and Samurai Jack (hehe he's secretly the Professor) are on this list. Makes me sad that I grew old, time went by, and these shows are no longer airing (unless they're on Boomerang)... Except for Megas XLR. I heard that show can't EVER be shown on cable TV again... Anyone know if this is true or false?

BEN 10...no...just no

I'm seeing a lot of crappy cartoon network characters here when CN is crap now.

Homer Simpson at number 1....please the Simpsons haven't been funny since the late 90s

Is this an opinion piece? Is there any source for this information besides the authors mind? I would bet any amount of money that if you gathered 10,000 kids 10 years old, since it is regarding the last 10 years, Coop from Megas XLR wouldn't come close to Scooby Doo and Ben 10 wouldn't be ahead of Sponge Bob.
RetrospectRealm  +   1053d ago
Honestly, Scooby Doo wouldn't be on the list. His shows have sucked the past decade. Especially the one he made the list for.
RockmanII7  +   1053d ago
Just because something is popular doesn't mean it is good, it means a bunch of people watch it. There are still a ton of people watching and buying merchandise for Scooby Doo.
RetrospectRealm  +   1053d ago
That show sucked majorly. That's why it was cancelled. xD
RockmanII7  +   1052d ago
I promise you, if you go into a 4th grade classroom (where the kids are 10 years old) there are gonna be more people who know what Scooby Doo is compared to Megas XLR. No ones talking about the quality of the show because it's not relevant to figuring out the popularity.

I can't believe I've been ignorant of Generator Rex & Ben 10.
I guess it's good thing they're coming to netflix streaming.
Sahil  +   1053d ago
Peter Griffin should be no.1
n4f  +   1053d ago
i strongly disagree.
from 2007 to 2010 -yes
after 2011ish its being ridiculous and dumb

Shaggy's name is Norville?
how have i been watching the Scooby cartoons my whole life and never knew that?

and Samurai Jack was freaking awesome.
Sahil  +   1053d ago
haha, same here I had no idea as well.
ps3_pwns  +   1053d ago
this list is fake lol. no one gives a crap about ben 10.
coop from megas xlr is a niche show not many eps and not a big show.
a lot of these pics are from unpopular shows or not long running shows.

you need more nick cartoons characters and more disney characters.

also dexter lab and powerpuff is probably more popular then most them CN shows.
Leio  +   1053d ago
The list is maybe right in the west, there are many famous japanese shows with much more popularity in the east
cell989  +   1053d ago
I disagree with the order of this list, Ben 10? really?
shackdaddy  +   1053d ago
Get rid of the Ben10 stuff. I don't even recognize that #16 guy.

Also, show Adventure Time some love. It's like a cult show now...
imXify  +   1053d ago
I would put with ease Zuko, Aang, Korra or Mako from the Avatar series.
aDDicteD  +   1050d ago
i was surprised to see samurai jack making it on the list. there are many cartoon characters but it's ok i think, it's an opinion piece and he's 1 hit slash is cool kinda reminds me of raiden of metal gear rising.
StarWarsFan  +   1049d ago
I think Futurama as a whole has been undervalued compared to The Simpsons and Family Guy. I'm not necessarily saying it's better, but its barely talked about.
