* Intro Paragraph: The Cartoon Tier List is a list of the top 100 cartoons in history. Each cartoon has been given a tier from one to three, with lower tiers being worse and higher tiers being better. This list was compiled using several different weighted factors including how often each show aired on television, its popularity among people who were children when they watched it, and how many episodes there are for each program.

How we ranked them: When compiling the ranking system for this study, we looked at four weighted variables across all programs: number of times that the show had aired on television, the popularity of these programs among people who were children when they watched them, how many episodes each show had over its lifecycle and the critical reception that it received.

Conclusion: This list was compiled using several weighted factors including number of times a cartoon aired on TV, its popularity among kids when they watched it, and how many episodes there are for each show. As such, some older shows like ‘The Smurfs’ might have come up higher than newer ones like ‘Futurama,’ but we feel confident that this list is a fair representation of the actual legacy that these cartoons have had in the world.

The reason why this is important is that it provides an imaginative way for children and adults alike to learn about history through cartoons. Moreover, these cartoon series are often timeless in their appeal because they include themes which will never go out of style such as friendship, loyalty, love, hard work ethic and family values among others things we should all teach our children from a young age in order to have them grow into well-rounded individuals who fully understand how life works. In addition there’s always new episodes being released with over 600 titles on Netflix alone so you can binge watch your favorite show.
The Cartoon Tier List
*Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry, Scooby Doo, Spongebob Squarepants.
As you can see there are many of them on Netflix alone with over 600 titles but what I’ve found interesting is that these cartoons teach children about history while still being incredibly entertaining to watch for adults as well.
*Tom and Jerry- The adventures of a cat named Tom (a gray tabby) and mouse named Jerry, who always seem to get into trouble no matter where they go or what they do together. Directed by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera’s team at MGM studios during the Golden Age Of American animation from 1940s through 1960s. Interestingly enough this cartoon has little to no dialogue so children must guess what the characters are thinking.
*Scooby Doo- The adventures of four teenagers and a dog who solve mysteries in their hometown, usually involving supposedly supernatural occurrences that turn out to have logical explanations. One of my favorite parts is when Shaggy will say “Like Scooby said, ‘Ruh Roh'” after catching the villain with his cowardly attitude throughout the rest of it. This cartoon has had some interesting adaptations such as live action versions where they use real people instead of puppets but I prefer this old school animation style better than any other version

*Dexter’s Laboratory – A scientist boy who has a secret laboratory that he goes to when his sister Dee Dee isn’t around. My favorite part of the show is typically where Dexter builds up an invention until it ultimately explodes in his face, which always makes me laugh. The adaptations are also interesting with live action and CGI versions but I prefer the original cartoon without any changes
*Pinky And The Brain – Two lab mice trying take over the world by using their knowledge of science as well as their cunning plans while they try to avoid getting caught by Professor O’Brainy or other people like him along the way This was one my favorites because not only does it have some entertaining stories, but it also has an educational component to the show.
*The Flintstones – A classic cartoon that is about a family living in prehistoric times and how they have adventures with each other as well as having some fun along the way The stories usually feature Fred trying out his new ideas for inventions or taking advantage of opportunities he sees while Wilma is looking after their daughter Pebbles and raising their son Bamm-Bamm who was born on April 20th. I liked this one because you never know what’s going to happen next which kept me engaged

They find clues and catch criminals so people are safe from danger like ghosts and monsters too! It was
