    Well, after the Pinky & the Brain accident @ Nick (which I doubt was an accident) and the Animainiacs screw-up, the horrible butchering of Ren & Stimpy, and The Angry Beavers, and also letting Tommy Pickles get away with pretending his pop gun is a real gun, it all comes down to it, Nickelodeon is the wrost channel EVER!
    BUT! ....
    what is the BEST show on Nickelodeon?
    In my opinion the best Nick show is...
    THE ANGRY BEAVERS!!!
    Among other shows I like, or tolerate, are Ren & Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life, and Invader Zim. The rest of the shows aren't worth watching AT ALL! Unless your desperate for something to watch.

    The Fairly Oddparents are gold. It's one of Nick's best shows in a long time, and has enough zaniness to keep it fresh for a long while...
    The Angry Beavers are excellent as well, but I haven't seen them in a while.

    Anything from Klasky-Csuspo is junk nowadays. Everything else is good, I guess, but TAB and TFO are the best shows...

    Angry Beavers is good stuff. And I'll agree that Klasky-Csupo needs some shaking up... all their new shows are too formulaic, and their "house" style gets more hideous all the time. If you think the designs on their teen show (whose name I forget) are ugly, you should have seen the ads for the McDonald's videos they did...

    I'd say--

    --a toss-up between The Angry Beavers and Spongebob Squarepants (Squidward's whining, morose Ned Sparks intonations always get me) . I got bored with Rugrats after it just got too saccharine to take...E.G. Daily's a lot more platable in The Power Puff Girls, IMO (she said in an interview once that there's a little bit of Buttercup in her when she's...well...feeling not so fresh, so to speak....) ;)

    In production? Dat would be SpongeBob Squarepants, Bob.

    Out, Animaniacs still conquers all.

    Crud. I forgot HEY ARNOLD and SPOGEBOB SQUAREPANTS. Arnold's show has really given a lotta life to all the characters, and yet still keeps humor. That's a very difficult task to achieve and it's done it dozens of times!

    SBSP gets my vote primarily for The Krusty Krab and Mr. Krab-any moment with him is gueranteed to be gold! :D

    Keenan and Kel were always watched by me when I was younger, and I still think it's good, but I really don't spend my Sunday afternoons watching it on Teen Nick...

    Nick originals - animation:

    The Angry Beavers
    Hey Arnold!
    Spongebob Squarepants
    Kablam! (primarily for Action League Now!)
    Invader ZIM (it took me a while to warm up to it)
    The Fairly Oddparents
    Rugrats (1991-93 eps only)
    Pelswick
    Rocko's Modern Life

    live-action:

    Kenan and Kel

    shows I wish were back on:

    Salute Your Shorts
    Welcome Freshmen
    Are You Afraid of the Dark?
    Roundhouse
    Ren and Stimpy

    Though I love the show, I won't list "Animaniacs". Check the quote-unquote "opening" for my reasons.

    The Fairly Oddparents and Rugrats are probably my favorites right now. On some of the other shows...it depends on the mood I'm in.

    I also like The Wild Thornberrys, because I really like animals (my parents are veterinarians) and I've always wanted to be able to talk to them..kinda corny, I know, but I still like the show.:)

    Other than whatever they get from KWB --- emasculated openings & closings notwithstanding --- I'd say The Fairly Oddparents & Invader Zim. And I can tolerate Rugrats. The rest I just don't get, & I have given them a chance. All a matter of taste.

    Nick faves

    Fairly Oddparents
    Spongebob Squarepants
    Invader Zim{though at times it's a bit violent for the really young ones}
    Rugrats, though I've been, well, Rugratted out for a while- only so many marathons of one show you can take
    Hey Arnold, mainly for the crazy as a loon bully Helga Pataki
    Wild Thornberrys, Catdog, and Doug I am on the fence about.
    Rocket Power I really don't like, as well as the Nick themed PatB and A! openings
    The rest I don't watch.

    Ditto. They're kinda going for, well, I'm not *sure* what they're going for.

    D*sney, meanwhile, is only going out for the "kewl awesome" kinda teenagers (recently saw the D*sney channel original movie 'The Poof Point', which does prove my point merely with the name 'Urban Slugs')

    Actually, a lot of networks are trying to aim for teens. I suspect it's because most fans are finally growing up, and most won't be like us and stay with toons forever....thus what with "Teen Nick" and this new Disney plan...

    ...but that's another lame theory from me.:rolleyes:

    INVADER ZIM has been temporarily bumped off Nickelodeon. Darn shame too - it's one of their best most innovative shows.

    I vote for Ren and Stimpy. I can’t believe it didn’t get many other votes. I hate Nickelodeon, and in my opinion, the only other good cartoon they had other than R&S is Rocko’s Modern Life.

    To those of you non-TTTP-ers who are wondering who I am, I never really post at this forum, but I read here occasionally and I just had to vote in this thread.

    The only things I really watch on N! are Animaniacs and SpongeBob... more than I usually watch on that channel, actually, but I've don't set time off to watch them. If they're on and I'm flipping the channels... But I watch a bit of Toon Disney, History Channel, and Travel Channel too...

    Cleary the best cartoon on Nick, is....

    Now wouldn't be nice if CARTOON NETWORK could make very good cartoon programs such as this one? Eh, Doubt it very much!
