#1 – Avatar: The Last Airbender (Netflix and Paramount+)
Fans of the show won’t be surprised by this one topping the list. “Invincible” is my favorite current animated show, but “Avatar: The Last Airbender” is by far one of the best animated shows I’ve seen and I’m glad it’s getting recognized more since it was put on multiple streaming platforms. The story follows Avatar Aang, a 12-year-old child tasked to master four elements to defeat Fire Lord Ozai and end a war that has been going on for 100 years.
This show is one of the few examples of cartoons that can be watched and enjoyed by both children and adults, with deeply meaningful storytelling and well-executed character development.
