Nickelodeon’s 15 Best Kids Shows That You Should Be Watching Right Now, No Matter What Your Age Is

A comprehensive list of what my daughter and I think is cool!


Nickelodeon has been a staple in households for ages. Kids all over the world love the content they provide and (sometimes) the parents do too. With input from my 9-year-old daughter, I’ve compiled a list of the best shows we think you all should watch.

*Note: These are in no particular order.

1. Breadwinners

Two cray-cray ducks run a bread truck and get into lots of trouble trying to deliver odd loaves of bread to the people of their town.

2. Bunsen Is A Beast

A human kid, Mikey, is friends with a beast. Throughout the series, human girl, Amanda, is constantly trying to prove Bunsen is a beast and not just another kid at school.

3. Fairly OddParents

Timmy Turner is a normal kid, except for the magical fairies who grant his wishes and often get him into trouble. Mr. Crocker is always trying to prove fairies do exist.

4. The Adventures of Kid Danger

An animated series in the same universe as “Henry Danger,” where super hero sidekick Kid Danger fights crime in Swellview with Captain Man and a few of his friends.

5. Alvin and the Chipmunks

Alvin, Simon, Theodore… Did you sing that? Hahaha. This is a revamp of the classic “Alvin and the Chipmunks” cartoon we all watched as kids and yes, Dave still yells “AAAAALLLLLVVVVVIIIIINNNNNN!!!!!”

6. Spongebob Squarepants

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Spongebob Squarepants! Spongebob has become a kid’s television staple in its own right. The bright yellow sponge, his friends, and their adventures will entertain many a person without fail.

7. Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, and Dawn

One of the few live action shows on this list, “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, and Dawn” follows the story of quadruplets and their preteen lives where things don’t always go as planned and life is full of laughs.

8. Game Shakers

Another of the live action choices on this list, “Game Shakers” is all about the son of a superstar rapper, Triple G, and his journey with a kid gaming company. The coolest part about this show for older fans is that the dad, Double G, is played by none other than Kel Mitchell of “Kennan and Kel” fame.

9. Peppa Pig

A young pig, Peppa, learns about the world around her in this British animated series that follows her journey with her parents and younger brother. *Side note: For some weird reason, the duck family that lives in their pond are the only animals that cannot talk!

10. Zoofari

Almost like an “America’s Funniest Videos” animal edition for kids, this show features talking animals doing different activities, like a having a dance party or a singing contest.

11. Wallykazam!

Follow the spelling adventures of a young troll named Wally and his pet dragon, Norville, as they use his magic stick to learn the ways of the world around them. Super educational show!

12. Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness

Po the Panda of “Kung Fu Panda” movie fame continues his adventures in China in this animated series. He still eats dumplings too. Fans of the films will get a great laugh and, occasionally, a lesson out of this entertaining show.

13. Tickety Toc

Geared towards the super little ones, “Tickety Toc” is about the characters of a Coo-Coo Clock and their adventures in their hidden world inside the clock. Every episode ends with the kids in the clock making sure they are back in their places on time to Coo-Coo!

14. Max & Ruby

Max and his older sister, Ruby, are bunnies who never get things right. Something always goes a bit off for them and in the end, Max usually has the solution, but Ruby doesn’t know it until the last minute.

15. Shimmer & Shine

Genies in training, Shimmer and Shine, grant amazing wishes for their friend, Leah. With multiple seasons and new characters, this show will appeal to anyone who loves the idea of magic and glitter. Learning life lessons is also a huge part of the show and let’s face it, we could all use a reminder to use manners or be nice.

Did you, or your kids, favorite show make our list?

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
