Nickelodeon is Turning into...stamp by Dauntlesse Nickelodeon is Turning into...stamp by Dauntlesse
Whatever happened to the cartoons?

Why are there so many sitcoms now and less animated series?

There should be a good balance of both, just like the good ol' days.

Let's have some cartoons back on TV where they belong, and bring back imagination to kids!

Why is it that I see so many talented artists, so much talent on the internet and in school and yet we don't have it shown on TV?

Stop killing the art, nick. You're not going outside of the box...what happened to you?

Poor Nickelodeon, but The loud house, TMNT 2012, Harvey Beaks are saving Nickelodeon.
I remember old Nick shows.
I despise Nick sitcoms like Max and Shred, Sam and Cat, Gameshakers, The Thundermans and other crappy shows.

There are 2 ways a cartoon can go: Either it can die a peaceful death or continue living until it turns into a garbage cesspool. Too bad 2 certain Nickelodeon cartoons had to choose the latter.

I can agree with most of the comments here: Carton Network is the only channel that is actually good. It has decent cartoons like Amazing World of Gumball, Wabbit, and the new Scooby Doo cartoon. It still airs Adventure Time and Regular Show, and it has an excellent program in Steven Universe. Teen Titans Go and Uncle Grandpa are bad, but their humor doesn't just rely on grossout. CN brought back Powerpuff Girls for a new generation to enjoy, Samurai Jack on Adut Swim for both old and new fans (plus it will have a lot more maturity than before). It will even bring in a Ben 10 reboot and might possibly air Lakewood Plaza Turbo in the future. Cartoon Network is not afraid to try new things, such as creating an animated Bunnicula series. Disney tries with their cartoons at least with Star Wars Rebel and the animated Marvel series. Nickelodeon however keeps bringing these knockoff Ren and Stimpy shows, way too many live action shows that try way too hard to be Disney Channel, and it's only good cartoons left have been suffering years worth of seasonal rot.

Hopefully when they do make cartoons, they aren't just cheap, quickly-written cartoons spewing out with toilet humor. Because an entire generation watching hours of shows like breadwinners is just lovely.

What about Sanjay and Craig? Sure,it's not as bad with toilet humor as Breadwinners is, but about 70% of its humor is toilet humor/gross out.

The only good show on there is tmnt. Spongebob went downhill, it used to be really good. Now it's trash.
Disney just cancelled all their good cartoons. The only good cartoons on there now is Wander over Yonder and Star vs The Forces of Evil... Oh wait, nope. They are cancelling woy, one of their only good shows. .-. Now let's wait for Svtfoe to end....
Cartoon Network has dumb cartoons but they have better shows such as Steven Universe, Amazing World of Gumball, We bare bears, Adventure Time, and some other cartoons. 

I'd say Cartoon Network wins!

I agree (well except for the TMNT part,I prefer The Loud House).Seriously, WTF Nickelodeon?!Quit pushing all your cartoons over to Nicktoons, ESPECIALLY if they still do new episodes (Breadwinners,Rabbids Invasion) or are still technically new (The Loud House)!

Amorraa Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2016  Student Writer
Yes! I'm glad we both agree on this. I honestly forgot completely about the Loud House. I've never seen it, but I've heard that it's really good. Harvey Beaks is another good Nick cartoon though. (I have no idea how I could have forgotten about those.)

Heh,it's OK.I tend to forget too!

But still,Nicktoons at least has multiple cartoons in its lineup,all Nickelodeon has (not including the preeschool hours) is Spongebob and Alvin reruns with the occasional new Loud House episode,other than that,they have their sitcoms.

(Sorry for the long reply, I have a tendency to rant)

Remember when Cartoon Network wanted to be like Nickelodeon and Disney Channel? In 2009 CN had a block called CNreal. Obviously it wasn't very good.

:iconvideogameguy21:
videogameguy21 Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2016
I think I remember a little bit of CNreal. I remember watching Destroy Build Destroy and a few other shows,but not much. Usually I would watch cartoons like Camp Lazlo that came on before and after the block went off.

I didn't have cable during that time so fortunately I didn't have the (dis)pleasure of watching CNreal. I had to watch WordGirl, Maya and Miguel, and Arthur.

Meh,some shows like TTG and Breadwinners I actually liked back when they were new,but nowadays I don't really like nor care for them.
I do sort of agree on the low standards thing. Sometimes if there's nothing on,I switch it to Disney Junior or PBS kids.

(How low,exactly?)

Eh, not too low. Just low by my standards. Like I didn't really pay much attention to anything, and just watched things for bright colors or jokes. So not really low standards, that was pretty much an exaggeration.

Ah.

Usually, I'll watch pretty much any cartoon so long as it doesn't have too much toilet humor (Teen Titans Go, Sanjay and Craig),doesn't make me feel like an idiot (Dora,Mickey Mouse Clubhouse), or has the same song sung in every episode (Doc Mcstuffins).

Nick is a lost cause.  They'll cancel good shows like Invader Zim and T.U.F.F. Puppy while letting SpongeBob and Fairly Odd Parents continue on when it's clear they're getting old to begin with.  Why, Nick, why must you kill T.U.F.F. Puppy in favor of continuing to milk money off a beaten horse like FOP, which should have been cancelled instead?

I agree. Whatever happened to Nicks' 'by kids for kids' thing? Instead of making more cartoons (like they should!) they think LIVE ACTION and SITCOMS! While I do admit some of the older ones like Drake and Josh and I Carly were good,the ones nowadays are just stupid (some even feel like rip-offs!).

Nickelodeon was not even creative with their name.
A nickelodeon was a movie theatrr in which you pay 5 cents to watch a movie, this is a sum up not the 200% true definition, so what does that quite say about the channel.
