1 Daria

3 The Simpsons The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening that originally started on April 19, 1987 as shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show. It got its own series on December 17, 1989 and is still running as of 2023, making it the longest running animated sitcom. It is about a man named Homer... read more

Excellent! I am not surprised it has been on so long and is still going strong!

One of the best shows ever. It has 34+ seasons, too, a record that no one will beat.

Number 1. The best, most watchable animated sitcom.

4 South Park South Park is an American adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network. The show is about four boys, who are Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick, and their adventures in South Park, Colorado.

Starts as a regular show and turns into aggressive research comedy. This is the best show ever!

The best because they aren't afraid to make fun of anyone.

My favorite show ever. It never seems to lose its quality like The Simpsons or Family Guy.

5 The Fairly OddParents The Fairly OddParents is an American animated television series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon.
6 Family Guy Family Guy is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Griffins, a family consisting of parents Peter (Fat, Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Bitchy Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Fat, Idiotic... read more

You haven't seen funny until you have seen this. Bob's Burgers and The Simpsons are good but don't make me laugh so hard to the point that I can't breathe. This show does.

Hilarious characters and very funny stories. They need to make new episodes.

7 Rick and Morty Rick and Morty is an American adult animated science fiction sitcom created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Adult Swim.

Why should you watch Rick and Morty?

As of August 2016, the series has received universal critical acclaim, holding a 100% approval rating by critics on the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes. Additionally, the first season of Rick and Morty holds a Metacritic score of 85 based on eight reviews, indicating "universal acclaim."

The smartest show I have ever seen. It is incredibly intelligent, incredibly relevant, and, most importantly, laugh-out-loud funny.

8 Futurama Futurama is an American animated science fiction sitcom created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

This is the best animated sitcom ever and, in my opinion, also the best show, period. It is unique. How many others on this list are set in the future? Most are about the everyday lives of (insert names here).

Best animated sitcom ever. Cool characters (Bender, Fry, Leela, Zoidberg, Professor, Hedonismbot). All of them are genius and intelligent stories. I have seen the series countless times and will watch it again and again whenever I can!

So clever that it surpasses The Simpsons. I cannot believe that it is this low on the list.

9 Bob's Burgers Bob's Burgers is an American animated sitcom created by Loren Bouchard for The Fox Broadcasting Company. It premiered on January 9, 2011 and is still running as of 2022.
10 King of the Hill King of the Hill is an American animated sitcom created by Mike Judge and Greg Daniels that ran from January 12, 1997 to May 6, 2010 on Fox.

By far the best. Most realistic and down-to-earth. The show introduces Southern life and Texas culture along with some good morals and values.

Provides good humor without going over the top. I love the subtle jokes.

The Contenders
11 Bojack Horseman BoJack Horseman is an American adult animated sitcom created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg. The series stars Will Arnett as the title character, BoJack Horseman.

Profound humor. Too deep, but fascinating at levels we didn't even know existed.

Deep as hell. Very rarely does an animated sitcom tackle the problems faced by celebrities in a funny manner. Bojack very cleverly uses dark humor to convey the complex emotions faced by Bojack.

One of the most thought-provoking animated sitcoms. Not for kids, obviously.

So good. Why is The Cleveland Show above this?

12 Archer

The best and funniest show ever. Not afraid to be real.

13 American Dad American Dad! is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker, and Matt Weitzman for the Fox Broadcasting Company and currently on TBS. American Dad! is the first television series made to premiere on the network's Animation Domination block. The series premiered on February... read more

A lot better than South Park and Rick and Morty.

14 The Looney Tunes Show The Looney Tunes Show is an American animated television series that premiered in 2011. It is a modern interpretation of the classic Looney Tunes characters, featuring Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and others as they navigate contemporary suburban life. The show blends elements of comedy, drama, and adventure... read more

I really wish this show had gotten more than two seasons. I have my complaints about some character changes (mostly Lola), but the dynamic between Bugs and Daffy as housemates in a sitcom feels like it was meant to be.

The ongoing nature of the show allows for jokes and continuity to build. This show builds on and remains mostly true to the original Looney Tunes shorts while, I think, turning them into something even better.

Why is this 10th? Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck make legendary roommates in this! This has seriously cracked me up way more than anything else on this list, especially the added 3D Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner cartoons, as well as the Merrie Melodies songs.

15 Beavis and Butthead
16 The Flintstones The Flintstones is the first animated prime-time American television series. It was broadcast from September 30, 1960 to April 1, 1966 on ABC.

Way better than everything listed above except maybe The Simpsons.

17 The Jetsons The Jetsons is an American animated sitcom produced by Hanna-Barbera, originally airing in primetime from September 23, 1962, to March 17, 1963, then later in syndication, with new episodes in 1985 to 1987 as part of The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera block.

It may not be the funniest show, and its animation may be a bit lacking, but dammit, The Jetsons is a classic. It was a great casual sci-fi cartoon for its time, and for that, I will show respect and vote for The Jetsons.

18 The Cleveland Show The Cleveland Show is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane, Richard Appel, and Mike Henry for the Fox Broadcasting Company as a spin-off of Family Guy.
19 Brickleberry Brickleberry is an American adult animated television sitcom that aired on Comedy Central from 2012 to 2015. The series was created by Waco O'Guin and Roger Black and executive produced by O'Guin, Black, and comedian Daniel Tosh.

SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 23 years, and is beginning its 13th season... read more

Most family and generationally acclaimed.

25 Scooby Doo, Where Are You! Scooby Doo is a famous fictional dog character from the show Scooby-Doo Where Are You? He is the protagonist of his series .

Another classic that has had generational success.
