By the time the first season launched in 2008, it was a huge success and ran until 2015 with 129 episodes. The show was a quick-paced comedy, with stepbrothers Phineas and Ferb trying to find things to do during summer vacation. It’s similar to Family Guy with rapid-fire jokes and running gags, but made for kids, without any of the raunchy humor of Seth MacFarlane’s show. Disney is bringing Phineas and Ferb’s chaotic inventions back for two more seasons, adding it as one of the best Disney Plus shows.

14 Gargoyles (1994 – 1997)

  • Episode Runtime: 22 minutes
  • Genre: Kids Animation

Its gothic atmosphere and unusually dark tone are part of what made it stand out. The cartoon remains iconic, with comic books and merchandise still sold over two decades later.

  • 1 Season
  • Episode Runtime: 40-50 minutes.
  • Genre: Comic Book Adaptation

This is the series that introduced the world to the man who ended up known as Kang – which is the next big bad of the MCU. While not as critically acclaimed as the 2022 series Ms. Marvel (98% on Rotten Tomatoes compared to Loki’s 92%), it remains one of the most important shows to watch when following the franchise and one of the best Disney Plus shows in the MCU.

  • Episode Runtime: 20-23 minutes
  • Genre: Kids Comic Book Animation
  • Voiced By: Brian Bloom, Chris Cox, Jennifer Hale

Before Avengers Assemble, there was Disney’s Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, a series that took a few cues from the MCU, but for the most part, remained true to the fan-favorite characters from the comics. The show started out with the original team from Avengers #1 in 1963 and allowed it to grow from there. Each episode of Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes provided a fun new adventure for Marvel’s flagship superhero team, many pulled straight from the comics. Viewers looked forward to seeing which Avengers would be paired together each week, and what classic hero or villain would be the next guest star.

  • 1 Season
  • Episode Runtime: 38-50 minutes
  • Genre: Sci-Fi
  • Starring: Diego Luna, Faye Marsaye, Stellan Skarsgård, Genevieve O’Reilly

Before their release on Disney Plus, the series Obi-Wan seemed like the best bet for success since Ewan McGregor returned as the legendary Jedi Warrior. However, it was Andor, with Diego Luna reprising his role from Rogue One that ended up as one of the best Disney Plus shows in the Star Wars world since The Mandalorian. This prequel showed Cassian Andor before he sacrificed his life to get the Death Star plans to the Rebel Alliance. This was an origin tale, showing how Andor went from a thief and scavenger to a warrior who became a legend. A second season is coming, and it promises to lead into the timeline of Rogue One​​​​​.

  • Genre: Family Comedy
  • Starring: The Muppets, various guests

Created by visionary Jim Henson, The Muppet Show brought characters similar to those on the iconic Sesame Street.

Each week, a human celebrity would show up on the show, including everyone from Mark Hamill and Steve Martin to Vincent Price and Alice Cooper. With memorable Muppets like Fozzie Bear and Miss Piggy, the show was a success and led to several movies. Not only did Disney Plus bring in The Muppets, but it also rebooted the franchise with Muppets Now in 2020, one of the best Disney Plus shows.

The Owl House got its start as an original series on The Disney Channel in 2020, and it was renewed for a second season before the first even arrived. However, it only lasted for three seasons before ending. This is rare for the best Disney Plus shows, as it promotes inclusivity above all, with The Owl House featuring strong characters, including an LGBTQ+ couple in the lead roles. The show focuses on a teenage girl who finds a portal to the Demon Realm, where she befriends the Owl Lady and sets out to become a witch in her own right. It won the Peabody Award for Children’s & Youth Programming.

  • 1 Season
  • Episode Runtime: 21 minutes
  • Genre: Kids Comic Book Animation
  • Voiced By: Christopher Daniel Barnes, Sara Ballentine, Linda Grey, Jennifer Hale

Over the years, Marvel has made quite a few cartoons based on the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, but the best is arguably Fox’s 1994 animated series. Spider-Man, which featured a traditional depiction of the wall-crawler, perfectly captured the spirit of the comic book hero and is loved by fans for its interpretations of Spider-Man’s most important comic storylines. While there are arguments that Spectacular Spider-Man improved on the stories, the original still remains one of the best Disney Plus shows based on critical and fan reviews, beating it 8.4 to 8.3 in IMDb fan voting.

7 Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008 – 2020)

  • 7 Seasons
  • Episode Runtime: 22 minutes
  • Genre: Sci-Fi Animation
  • Voiced By: Matt Lanter, James Arnold Taylor, Ashley Eckstein, Dee Bradley Baker

Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars filled in the gap between Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. The series, which used a unique 3D animation style, allowed viewers to get to know the various members of the Jedi Order, including characters who didn’t receive much screen time in the prequels. Through five seasons on Cartoon Network, The Clone Wars featured top-notch storytelling, and its additions to the Star Wars lore are still recognized today in other installments. In 2020, Disney+ became the exclusive home of a brand-new season of The Clone Wars.

  • 5 Seasons
  • Episode Runtime: 22 minutes
  • Genre: Kids Comic Book Animation
  • Voiced By: Norm Spencer, Cathal J. Dodd, Cedric Smith, Lenore Zann, Catherine Disher.

X-Men: The Animated Series is easily one of the most influential superhero cartoons and best Disney Plus shows of all time, and it is equally lauded today. The series is largely what drove the popularity of Marvel’s Merry Mutants in the 1990s, and its take on characters like Cyclops, Rogue, Gambit, Rogue, and Wolverine had a huge impact on how these comic book heroes are remembered today. X-Men had everything that a show of its kind needed: likable characters, tension, humor, and a heavy dose of action. The show maintains a massive fanbase and the MCU is rebooting it on Disney Plus with the new title, X-Men ’97.
