Best: Harvey Beaks. (The show, not it’s treatment of it) It was the closest Nick came to Adventure Time which Nick famously rejected.
Worst: Their whole attitude towards animation. This decade has shown that compared to other networks and services, Nick has the least amount of respect for animation as an art form. Everyone else put out several shows that are artistic visually, narratively, and auditorily and the handful of ones Nick did have were poorly managed, I don’t want just animated sitcoms like the Loud House. They really needed to take animation seriously in the 2010’s because with streaming taking off, they likely won’t have that kind of chance again.
Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Amazing cartoon because it shouldn't work and somehow does. It rejects every major part of the Turtle canon and that's why I love it. The Turtle canon as a whole sucks, especially if you try to get to everything like 2012 did. Rise is fast and funny and doesn't really want to do much more than entertain us. It's also weird how the 2-D animation must be much less expensive than 2012's CGI, but it looks and animates SO much better.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2012:
Everything a TV cartoon CAN do wrong, this did wrong. The character designs were ugly, and despite the big budget, everything looked cheap in an empty New York, and the writing was outright terrible. Worse, the Turtles were outright unlikable and incompetent. It wasn't four Ninjas. It was the Three Stooges and Roger Rabbit. The show was literally so bad that the last episode ended with the world being destroyed due to their incompetence, and them spending the rest of the future apocalypse getting every single one of their remaining allies killed because they were so irresponsible. And the producers thought that was a swell note to leave us off on. This isn't just one of the worst Nick cartoons of the decade. It's one of the worst cartoons of the decade period.
Best : Harvey Beaks (should have ran longer but best) , The Loud House ( First Nick show I've adored in years) , The Casagrandes, Hunter Street (yeah I'll put that here, it was some of their best live-action stuff in years) Bringing back some game shows , glad they want to have game shows again, their revival stuff was good.
Middle : I like their experimentation on the telenovelas at least it was something different some what enjoyable. Their sitcoms were other wise kind of weaker. So of the good ones they had were better than Dan Schneider's this decade like 100 things to do before High School, The Thundermans , that one show from Canada (Max and Shred).
Worst: Their weird problem of not letting other animated shows grow. (I do worry they might over do it with the Loud House, and run it into ground instead of letting it end at a good point) Their scheduling of things badly. Letting things run into the ground . Letting Teenick and Nicktoons kind of just wither on the vine. (That might be Viacom problem)
They gotta at least make new cartoons for their channel in addition to ones for streaming.With scheduling being a common complaint, maybe Nickelodeon would be better off developing new animated properties for streaming rather than their network, where scheduling is not an issue.
