A series that focuses on the sidekicks as they form their own team. A bit too much melodrama. But hey, in the second season it has Jaime Reyes as the Blue Beetle!

X-men as teenagers! Well most of them. Follows the team as they attempt to keep their powers secret while also thwarting the Brotherhood of Mutants.

A pizza delivery boy is frozen by accident and wakes up in the world of tomorrow. He joins the crew of the delivery company, Planet Express, and wacky hi-jinks ensue. Unfortunately some of its magic fizzled in later seasons.

I may take some of flak for this but I will stand by this statement. Avengers: EMH is the best representation of the team and it beats the live action version by a long shot. Hawkeye is actually an interesting character! The team contends with all manner of villains, too bad they never got to fight Thanos.

Canceled during its peak.

The best representation of Spiderman. Peter Parker is in high school, as he should be. If you can get past the art style you are in for a treat as well as the best representation of the Green Goblin.

Unfortunately it was also canceled at its peak.

Don't let The Last Airbender's position fool you, I adore this show. But this category is stacked! If you want a sprawling epic story with memorable characters and great development this is the show for you.

I only began to watch this recently and wow did I blaze through it. Took me a weekend to watch it all. -_-
With a surprisingly deep world and characters plus outrageous humor it easily takes the spot of number four.

A deconstruction of boy adventurer shows. This series depicts the reality in a dark but also hilarious light. The growth of the characters in something to pay special attention to. And the characters, well, I could make a top 20 list of them alone.

This series deserves to be on this list due to the creation of Harley Quinn and the reinvention of Mr. Freeze into a tragic villain alone. A show that nailed everything about Bruce Wayne: his inner demons, his brooding, detective work, intellect, and kind heart. This is hands down the best and most balanced portrayal of Batman ever.

I admit Batman:TAS should of probably been number one but this show appeals to my inner child too much. The cast is massive with many of the lesser known DC characters such as The Question or Vigilante being focused on from time to time. Despite this the show stays focused and consistent delivering entertaining episodes while also advancing the main plot. It's also funny watching this show as an adult and seeing the sexual references. Like Black Canary saying to Green Arrow "You wanna go a few rounds with me? I am talking about sparring." and him replying, "That'd be nice too." Or a reporter saying, "Flash is like the entire track-team at once". Hehe

Top 20 animated TV shows that aren't Anime. That list will come later. This list was originally top 10 but so many quality shows exist that I had to make it a top 20.

Batman TAS definitely holds an extreme prejudice among it's fanbase, but thank you for not being stubbornly predictable and like put the Simpsons at a ridiculously high number, just because it's been on the air for a long time ;-)...
