12) Avatar: The Last Airbender (103 points)
The Penguins of Madagascar is a spin-off of the "Madagascar" films and revolves around the adventures of the 4 penguins, Skipper, Kowalski, Private and Rico as they try to get by on a daily basis and protect their habitat at the Central Park Zoo. Everything they do is treated as a strategic military style commando/spy mission and each team member plays a certain role in the group. They are often harassed by a trio of Lemurs from Madagascar, King Julien, Maurice and Mort. The events of the series are supposedly set after "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" but it is unknown as to how the penguins and lemurs arrived at the zoo without the other characters from the Madagascar movies. The show started production before an ending to "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" had been established. Tom McGrath, creator of the show and voice of Skipper said "It's not specifically before or after the movie, I just wanted them all back at the zoo. I think of it as taking place in a parallel universe."

9) Rocket Power (90 points)
The series focuses around a nomadic family of documentary filmmakers known as the Thornberrys, famous for their televised wildlife studies. It primarily centers on the family's younger daughter Eliza, and her secret gift of being able to communicate with animals, which was bestowed upon her after having rescued a shaman masquerading as a trapped warthog. The gift enabled her to talk to the Thornberrys' pet chimpanzee Darwin. Together, the pair frequently venture through the wilderness, befriending many species of wild animals along the way or realizing moral truths and lessons through either their experiences or a particular animal species's lifestyle, or simply assisting the creatures, by which they become acquainted, in their difficulties. The Wild Thornberrys premiered in September 1998, and was the first Nicktoon to exclusively use 22-minute stories (episodes of other Nicktoons usually featured two 10 – 11-minute stories, using 22-minute stories only on occasion).
8) The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius (80 points)
Rocket Power is an animated series which debuted on the Nickelodeon TV channel in August of 1999 and revolves around the day to day adventures of (at present) middle-school age extreme sports enthusiasts who live in the fictitious Southern California beach resort town of Ocean Shores, where they enjoy surfing, roller skating, skateboarding, bicycling, street hockey, and other active pastimes. In fact, due to the activities in the subject matter, the producers retained a Surfer Magazine staff member as a language and technical consultant to make sure that things like ocean waves and skate park halfpipes worked with some degree of credibility. There is reason to suggest Rocket Power and the popular Cartoon Network show, Steven Universe, take place within the same canon timeline. Fans of the show proudly point to the virtues of friendship, mutual loyalty, and physical activity exhibited by the principal characters, as well as the fact that ethnic characters in the show are voiced by ethnic talent.
7) The Angry Beavers (79 points)
The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius (originally promoted as Jimmy Neutron: The Series) is an American television series, starring characters from the film, Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. The series continues the lives of Jimmy Neutron and his best friends Carl Wheezer, Sheen Estevez, Goddard, Cindy Vortex and Libby Folfax.

The series first aired in July 2002 and the last episode aired in November 2006, it had three seasons and television films. In it's early days, it was accused of ripping off Dexter's Laboratory (a show from Nickelodeon's rival channel, Cartoon Network), but overtime, many people saw how the show had its own identity. Even though the movie was popular while in theaters and being shown on Nick, many consider the show to be better than the movie. Also, due to it playing often on Nickelodeon long after it had left theaters, some people believed that it came during or after the show.
6) CatDog (72 points)
The Angry Beavers is an American animated television series created by Mitch Schauer for Nickelodeon. The series revolves around Daggett and Norbert Beaver, two young beaver brothers who have left their home to become bachelors in the forest near the fictional Wayouttatown, Oregon. When their parents have another litter, Norbert (the smart one) and Daggett (the stupid one) Beaver have to strike out on their own. Their new home on a lake in middle of the forest seems to be the scene of most every odd occurrence imaginable. The two beavers have to deal with wacko government scientists, 100-foot walking splinters, super-long teeth, a fish so big it can swallow a Swede, a giant cricket, the dreaded stinky toe, evil mind-controlling pond scum, a Swamp Witch, zombies, Mexican wrestlers, lying documentary-film makers, a stupidity potion, a big fat hairy naked Canadian, and a too-friendly robot, along with many other problems. In the midst of all this, Norb and Dag satisfy their love of Grade-Z 50's sci-fi, hot peppers, Yoo-hoo, and, of course, wood.
The show premiered in the United States on April 19, 1997 and ended on June 11, 2001
5) Doug (66 points)
CatDog is an American animated television series which aired for 3 seasons between 1998 and 2005 on Nickelodeon. The series follows the adventures of CatDog, a conjoined twin hybrid of a cat and dog with two heads (one at either end of its single body) and no tail or hind legs.
The series depicts them as being as different as cats and dogs - Dog loves rock n' roll, Cat does not. Dog loves to chase garbage trucks, Cat does not. Dog enjoys eating at fast food restaurants (such as Taco Depot), whereas Cat does not. However, they are best friends. The creator Peter Hannan said he was inspired by CatDog by watching neighborhood cats and dogs occasionally fight each other, and thought that it would be great to make conjoined twinned Cat and Dog to see how both of the animals would fare against other things. The idea of them being conjoined twins came from Hannan watching several news stories on TV about conjoined twins living a normal life conjoined together. Both aspects he claimed, initially developed the idea of CatDog.
4) The Fairly OddParents! (53 points)

His wishes often backfire on him, as either the wishes are disastrous, or they make for him a new enemy.

2) SpongeBob SquarePants (42 points)
Rugrats is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó, and Paul Germain for Nickelodeon.

It was then revived after two Jewish Holiday Specials on May 9, 1997 and ran for a longer period until it's last episode on June 8, 2004. The show focuses on the little babies and their day-to-day lives, usually involving common life experiences that become adventures in the little babies' imaginations. They are able to communicate with each other through baby speak, although viewers can understand them, because it is 'translated'. It was aired on Nickelodeon, and before SpongeBob SquarePants overtook it, was the longest running show on Nickelodeon. When the show was revived, the plot was radically changed from the original, and in 1998, a new character was introduced. After The Rugrats Movie, in which Tommy's younger brother Dil is born, he was soon added as a character on the show. As a four month old baby, Dil is not able to communicate with anyone. Later in 2000, after Rugrats in Paris: The Movie was released, Kimi was added as a character. She is Chuckie's stepsister (Later real sister after they were adopted).
1) Hey Arnold! (39 points)
SpongeBob SquarePants, also simply referred to as SpongeBob, is an Emmy award-winning American animated comedy series and media franchise. It is chronologically the tenth of Nickelodeon's Nicktoons and is currently the most-watched show on Nickelodeon. In 2007, it was named by TIME Magazine as one of the greatest television shows of all time. It also broke a record for the most amount of episodes aired in one year, with 45.
SpongeBob SquarePants is the longest-running Nickelodeon show. In 2012, the episode "Squiditis" was episode 173a, making SpongeBob the longest-running Nickelodeon series, surpassing the former holder, Rugrats, which consisted of 172 episodes.
The series is set in the Pacific Ocean, in the city of Bikini Bottom, under the island of Bikini Atoll and on the surrounding lagoon floor. The main character, SpongeBob SquarePants, is an active, happy sponge who lives in a pineapple under the sea (as the show's theme song states) while his grouchy, miserable neighbor, Squidward Tentacles lives in an Easter Island-like house. Squidward's name was made as "Squidward" although he is an octopus, but Stephen wanted to make it catchy, so that's why Squidward's name was named as Squidward and not Octoward. Squidward's name came from the English name 'Edward'. SpongeBob's other neighbor and best friend is a chubby pink starfish named Patrick Star, who lives under a huge rock with a compass on the top. SpongeBob and Patrick live on both sides of Squidward on Conch Street. They often go to the Krusty Krab or Jellyfish Fields.
Hey Arnold! is an American animated television series that ran from October 7, 1996 until June 8, 2004 on Nickelodeon.
The show stars 4th-grader Arnold, who lives with his paternal grandparents Phil and Gertie, proprietors of the Sunset Arms boarding house. Arnold attends P. S. 118, along with several other students, including his best friend Gerald, and Helga, a female bully that is secretly in love with Arnold. In each episode, Arnold will often help a schoolmate solve a personal problem, or he will encounter a predicament of his own.
Each episode of the show is one 23-minute block featuring two 11-minute segments, although there are several episodes that last the full 23 minutes. Episodes of the series take place in the order they were written/produced, without adhering to a chronological timeline. The series has subtle continuity and occasional callbacks, and sometimes new recurring characters are introduced, such as in "New Teacher" and "Ms. Perfect".
The series takes place in the mid-to-late 1990s, in a realistic setting; the fictional American city of Hillwood. Contrary to popular belief, the city is not or does not represent New York City. Craig Bartlett has officially stated that the city the show takes place in is somewhere in the Pacific Northwest, and is an amalgam of three cities (mostly Northern) that he lived in: Seattle, Brooklyn, and Portland. Many of the show's events were based on his own experiences growing up in the big city.
Some aspects of the series came about through Bartlett's family. Matt Groening (Creator of The Simpsons, Craig Bartlett's brother-in-law) adviced Bartlett to make his character designs recognizable from a distance, and Lisa Groening (Bartlett's wife, Matt's sister) came up with the idea of Helga's crush on Arnold. Other aspects of the series developed as the series went on, such as the whereabouts of Arnold's parents.
Hey Arnold! first debuted as an animated short for the Nickelodeon film Harriet the Spy in July 1996. Production on the show started in August 1995 and ended on December 7. 2001 after 100 episodes and one theatrical film, though the very last episodes were not aired until 2004.
The show is notable for being one of the first modern animated series to use child or teenage voice actors for most child characters, in order to add a more "authentic" childhood vibe to the series. As a result of the use of young voices, some characters (such as Arnold and Eugene) were played by multiple actors throughout the years, due to their previous voice actors going through voice changes. Other characters (such as Rhonda and Helga) retained the same voice actor for the entire run of the series, and had their voices become deeper as the series progressed, giving the impression of them maturing.
In 2016, over a decade after the original series ended, Nick and Bartlett came to an agreement and began production on a new Arnold TV movie that was originally a cancelled theatrical project, Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie.
