The voting was definitely not unanimous, so if you think another show deserves a spot on this list, leave your vote on the list below!
#5: “W.I.T.C.H.” (2004)
This animated action/fantasy show premiered on ABC Family and Toon Disney and followed the story of five girls who use their magical powers to become the Guardians of the Veill. The titular acronym represents their names: Will, Irma, Taranee, Cornelia and Hay Lin and their powers of the elements that help them guard the walls between parallel universes. Fans of the show praised it for its unpredictable story, strong and lovable characters and an interesting anime-influenced animation style.
#4: “Totally Spies!” (2001)
Here we go, here we go! Sam, Clover and Alex were like the cartoon version of Charlie’s Angels, but they had to balance it all with their homework. They went from regular high school (and later university) students to undercover international spies faster than you can say “totally” and it totally rocked. If you didn’t grow up with the goal of having your own colored jumpsuit, did you really watch “Totally Spies”?
#3: Danny Phantom (2004)
From the creator of “Fairly OddParents”, “Danny Phantom” was a Nickelodeon favorite for many, following Danny, the boy that acquired paranormal superpowers after an accident in his parent’s lab and decided to begin fighting ghosts. If you were a fan of this cartoon it was probably on account of the well-written stories, successful voice-acting and fun use of sarcasm, or maybe you just wished you could be half-ghost too.
#2: Static Shock (2000)
Based on the DC Comics character of the same name, “Static Shock” follows Virgil Hawkins who’s brief street gang activity leads to chemical explosions that give him electromagnetic powers with which he battles against Dakota City crime. Praised by fans and critics for its ability to tackle real-world social issues related to gangs, violence, racism and poverty, this animated high schooler/superhero clearly made an imprint on his pre-teen audience in 2000.

#1: Code Lyoko (2003)
“Code Lyoko” received the most votes on this list by far and based on the show’s reviews from both critics and devoted fans, everyone is pretty much in agreement that it was a hit. The Cartoon Network show followed boarding-school students Jeremy, Yumi, Ulrich and Odd who discover Lyoko, a virtual universe where an A.I. named XANA threatens to destroy the world. Although there was a reboot, “Code Lyoko: Evolution,” that ended in 2013, there is an overwhelming demand for round 3. Re-watching the original just isn’t enough anymore!
