The Best Kids' TV Shows of the Decade (2010–2019)

The past decade saw a massive shift in how people -- kids especially -- watch TV. Saturday-morning cartoons became any-time-of-day cartoons as Netflix and other on-demand viewing services became the norm. At the same time, the amount (and quality) of kids' programming exploded, and kids were introduced to some of the best, most diverse TV characters of all time. We selected 10 of our absolute favorite kids' shows that came out between 2010 and 2019, listed here in order by age rating. These quirky, colorful series are chock-full of positive role models, learning potential, and entertainment value. And for more of the best media of the past 10 years, check out our list of the Best Kids' Movies of the Decade and the Best Kids' Books of the Decade.
