Top 10 Funniest Cartoons of All Time

The Top Ten
1 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.

One of the best and funniest cartoon in the world! Cartman laugh my ass off, Kenny gets killed multiple times, and characters that acts goofy in many ways! South Park should get a A+ on every Comedy Central even though they make little mistakes including Muhammad! Keep up the good work, South Park!

Hands down, South Park is such a masterpiece, with an amazing funny humor from a simple jokes to a very dark ones, not to mention the funny characters like, Kenny, butters, Randy and the legend himself Eric Cartman! All of these characters can make you laugh in their own way, a very legendary show.

Agree, this show is so funny, it makes you laugh your balls off. It just keeps getting funnier. Cartman, Butters, and Randy are so funny. They actually tell relatable jokes that make us laugh so hard. It is very consistent and we can all understand

The only thing that I really disliked about it was Season 20, even then they had some really good moments. It's not just empty jokes like Family Guy. Kinda baffles me how this had any place on the Worst Cartoon list.

2 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 Simpson and his family (wife Marge and children Bart, Lisa and Maggie and pets, Snowball II and Santa's Little Helper) going through a long series of misadventures.

Brilliant, intelligent, wacky, eclectic, undying, and most of all downright funny, oh wow, the Simpsons is should be on top of all these by a mile. More than half a thousand episodes, and counting, consistently funny from season 1 to 26, man, who wouldn't admire that! This cartoon is so great that it even the smart-arse folks get hooked with it. My vote goes to The Simpsons!

Even though, the Simpsons doesn't have racist jokes or a solid dark humor, it remains amazing, I like how the jokes are making funny fun of the life style of regular American and make you say "very funny because that happened to me" also it's very good of making fun of politics, history, etc...
I know the show isn't that great nowadays but you can laugh at least once while watching the new episodes.

This crap is not funny. I admit the from seasons 1-10 were very funny but the new episodes tell the lamest and cringiest jokes. The new episodes make people wish the show would end, just look it up. By the way, stop saying this show makes"you laugh," as in us the audience. Not that many people laugh at this plus you don't speak for me.

I LOVE this show. My all time favorite character is Bart Simpson, and he has the best pranks. Homer is my second favorite, which he is funny for making hilarious mistakes. my third will have to be Lenny. He's funny, and I like his voice. Trust me, this show TOTALLY DESERVES to be on number one!

3 Tom and Jerry Tom and Jerry is an American animated series of comedy short films created in 1940 by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. Best known for its 161 theatrical short films by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the series centers on a rivalry between the title characters Tom, a cat, and Jerry, a mouse. Many shorts also feature several recurring characters.

Tom and Jerry is so overrated. In fact, people only seem to enjoy it because of the nostalgia. But truly, Tom and Jerry has a very simple, boring plot; a cat tries to catch a mouse, but the mouse always outsmarts the cat. There are no (enjoyable) jokes in this show, it's mostly slapstick and cartoon violence, which I do not find in the least bit amusing. Its repetition is annoying, and is completely unnecessary; come on, can't you alter the episodes just a bit? I don't understand the hype with this show.

You don't need swearing and rude jokes to make a cartoon funny. When cartoons that only have rude jokes are above this masterpiece, it kills me inside. Barely anyone knows decent comedy cartoons. This used to be my favourite cartoon of all time.

Tom a Jerry is such a timeless classic! That made my grandpa, my dad and now me laugh for decades, without saying any word most of the time, it's really interesting how this show has aged well.

Don't worry, Tom and Jerry. We all know that you are way better than the Amazing World of Gumball. What a great show.

4 SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator the late Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. 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. The show revolves around a sea sponge called SpongeBob SquarePants and his adventures under the sea. The show is considered to be one of the best Nickelodeon and cartoon shows of all time.

Tom and Jerry: the same cat always chasing the same mouse, ending with the mouse escaping and the cat having pain.
Family Guy: a cartoon with a sitcom structure and totally unfunny jokes, which often don't even originate the stryline but are flashbacks.
The Simpsons: an sitcom-like cartoon series in which white people have a yellow skin and everyone looks so stupid it isn't even funny, which contains 2 jokes an episode.
SpongeBob Squarepants: a show about smaller marine animals going through a lot of crazy stuff, from sitcom-like episodes about their daily lives and parodies of our society to absurd cartoon stories, while still manage to be genuine funny every episode, every segment, being on Nickelodeon and attracting teens and adults just because of the amazing humoristic situations, characters and jokes. SpongeBob has some bad episodes, the other cartoons probably some good ones, but SpongeBob is definitely my number 1 tie with South Park.

Clever and witty, the early Spongebob episodes are chalk full of both mind-numbing, ridiculous cracks, as well as subtle pokes at culture pop-culture. Also featured is a great amount of again subtle adult toilet humour, that younger viewers won't understand or appreciate. A great social commentary too, Spongebob never disappoints. 10/10 for pre-movie Spongebob.

Sponge bob has learned to master the ability to make people quote off things they say. I mean come on how many times in your schools band class have you wanted to ask "Is mayonnaise an instrument? " Definitely should be higher up on the list

By far the funniest kids cartoon ever! The show is really funny for kids and even as a teenage I find myself laughing after understanding many jokes that I didn't get when I was young...

5 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 Son), and Stewie (Sociopathic and Genuine Infant); and lastly Brian (Anthromorphic Pet Dog). The show is set in the fictional city of Quahog, Rhode Island, and exhibits much of its humor in the form of cutaway gags that often American culture. more.

This is like the time Peter counted down all the shows that would need to fail for them to get back on the air!

Family guy can be funny when it wants to, but heck some of its jokes make me want to kick myself in the balls.

Why is this thing on the list? What kind of human would think that the modern seasons are funny?

What how is this lower than toilet humor simpsons!?
Family Guy is toilet humor it has more than the simpsons.

6 Looney Tunes Looney Tunes is an American animated series of comedy short films produced by Warner Bros. from 1930 to 1969 during the golden age of American animation, alongside its sister series Merrie Melodies.

I have watched Season 1 and Season 2 and went crazy when I realized that Season 3 is not out as yet. Looney Tunes is not viewed by many probably because it is only aired on Cartoon Network. The jokes are fresh and crisp, it is loaded with sarcasm (something I'm sure Americans will appreciate) and it still carries the moral of the story, which is not lost on a younger viewership.

You guys seriously have no education in cartoons. Family Guy is by far the most unfunny piece of garbage I have ever watched and somehow it is funnier than Looney Tunes. Yeah right.

The definition of what irreverent, silly although intelligent and appealing humor is. Nothing comes close in terms of originality and charm. Also Bugs bunny is the funniest character ever behind homer simpson.

Looney Tunes is a Classic Masterpiece that should air on other Channels besides Boomerang and Cartoon Network.

7 The Amazing World of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball is a British-Australian-German-American-Irish children's animated television series created by Ben Bocquelet for Cartoon Network.

Has the best character design, out of all the shows here it does the best job breaking the fourth wall. Initially you may not enjoy it as some episodes are mediocre but continue because some episodes are simply brilliant with laughs everywhere and not the silly humor found in spongebob or simpsons.

Are you kidding me? This show USED to be funny, but ever since the voice actors changed it became a new Teen Titans Go. This show was good the first few seasons, but it's absolute trash now. That episode where Darwin grows legs? Not one moment was funny

Best show. This show is awesome because it is funny and somehow it is still able to maintain it and not going "downhill" like adventure time( not a hater of adventure time)

I love Gumball. It's such a down-to-earth cartoon that parodies modern society, yet at the same time it's wild and imaginative. Never failed me.

8 Regular Show Regular Show is an American animated television series created by J. G. Quintel for Cartoon Network that premiered on September 6, 2010. The series revolves around the lives of two friends, a blue jay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby—both employed as groundskeepers at a local park.

The year was 2010. While Disney Channel gave terrible sitcoms, Cartoon Network gave us Regular Show. It was a great year for young viewers to finally watch quality programming, especially if it's hilarious cartoons like Regular Show. What's the catch? Blue jay and raccoon named Mordecai and Rigby turn everyday things into wacky adventures. Many other beloved characters including Pops, Muscle Man, High 5 ghost, Benson, Skips, and many more are involved too. You'll laugh and cry when you watch this show. Hilarious dialogue, great voice acting, amazing slapstick comedy, great artistry, and pop culture references make for an amazing cartoon. This is indeed the Looney Tunes of the 21st century.

Hilarious and imaginative cartoon, with generally likeable characters and the chemistry between the two main characters is delightful, would have likely been higher if some of the storylines had been better, the love triangle saga got boring really quickly & most likely contributed to lower viewers rating.

I like this show. They say that Adventure Time is better, but I find that show hard to like. Regular Show is amazing. It has some hilarious jokes, even though 19 is a pretty fair rating for this cartoon. It's not the best, but it's the only good cartoon nowadays.

Best cartoon show ever, it has muscleman's my mom jokes, Rigby and Mordecai messing up cool music.I remember one episode where mordecai and rigby were versing the hammer and it came to life muscleman went up to it the hammer punched him then while he was going back his boobs hit him in his face.

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

Very intelligent show with a very great episodes plot and script, and unlike the Simpsons it has aged well.

Amazing show! Way better than Tom & Jerry or SpongeBob...

Watched them all. Futurama is the best for me!

Get this higher than Family Guy!

10 Animaniacs Steven Spielberg Presents Animaniacs is an American animated comedy television series produced by Amblin Television label in collaboration with Warner Bros.

It's everything that made the Looney Tunes hilarious, but with some added Marx Brothery, Monty Python-esque flair that really makes it stand out as its own thing. It's just absolutely side-splitting, and it's one of the only cartoon shows that actually gets progressively funnier to me as I get older. It's got everything: parodies, puns, pop-culture references, slapstick, adult humour, verbal humour, musical humour... You name it, they've done it and perfected it.

The Warner Siblings, especially Yakko, are the funniest cartoon protagonists I've ever seen, and that's really saying something. The rest of the show is very funny too (although to be fair, for every Pinky and the Brain there's a Rita and Runt, and for every Slappy Squirrel there's a Katie Ka-Boom), but let's face it: it's the Warners who carry the show, and their antics alone are enough to make you fall out of your seat laughing. Goodnight, everybody!

If you love smart, witty dialogue and clever satire like I do, you will get ADDICTED to this show. Wow! The more I watched Animaniacs, the more it amazed me. This is easily one of the smartest and funniest cartoons I have ever seen. The Warners alone are an absolute laugh riot (especially Yakko), and who doesn't love Pinky and The Brain. If you've never watched an episode of Animaniacs, do yourself a favor and watch it (Start with the episodes with the Warners, Pinky and the Brain, and Slappy and Skippy).

One episode of this show has more laughs than seasons 7-12 of Family Guy combined. Seriously, watch "Hot, Bothered and Bedeviled," "Temporary Insanity," "Baloney and Kids," and "King Yakko." I dare you to get through these episodes without laughing. And don't get me started on Pinky and the Brain (who were so popular they got their own spin-off show).

Whenever I watch a video I haven't seen before I always laugh myself half to death. In one of the videos, Slappy had gone crazy! Well at least crazier than normal. I love how she annoyed the doctor.

The Contenders
11 Gravity Falls Gravity Falls is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation that first aired on Disney Channel, and then on Disney XD from June 15, 2012 to February 15, 2016. The series follows the adventures of Dipper Pines and his twin sister Mabel in the fictional town of Gravity more.

Honestly, there hasn't been one episode of this show that hasn't gotten at least one laugh out of me. Gravity Falls manages to maintain consistent humor and jokes, without purely relying on comedy as it's source of plot material.

Seriously, this should be higher, this was the first cartoon I was ever interested in... Which lead to me liking other cartoons... Which eventually lead me into anime!
But now for why I like it its hilarious... I think I better stop...

What's amazing about this show is that is it's seems like an average other Disney cartoon, and then you realize the entire thing behind Gravity Falls!

I love this show! Why is it at rank 12? It should be at least at rank 10! This show is so funny it made my parents laugh! And plus it has no fart jokes!

12 Ed, Edd and Eddy Ed, Edd n Eddy is a Canadian-American animated comedy television series created by Danny Antonucci for Cartoon Network, and the sixth of the network's Cartoon Cartoons. The series revolves around three preteen boys: Ed, Edd "Double D," and Eddy—collectively known as "the Eds"—who live in a suburban more.

Hard to resist not laughing at every thing this trio does.
It uses classic jokes, 4th wall breaks ( Not like Chowder which breaks the 4th fall every second ), Dirty Jokes ( "Snowjob.. Get it? Snowjob! " ) and rarely toilet humor (Ed contributes to this the most

I loved this show since I was 7. Unfortunately, that's the year it got cancelled.

Should be top four

This was awesome

13 Phineas and Ferb Phineas and Ferb is an American animated comedy-musical television series. Originally broadcast as a one-episode preview on August 17, 2007 and again previewed on September 28, 2007, the series officially premiered on February 1, 2008 and ended on June 12, 2015 on Disney Channel, and follows Phineas more.

Why the hell is this all the way down here, and where's Perry?

I'm busting you for being inaccurate!

Perry and Doofensmirtz are the only good thing about this show.

So many awesome moments

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

Should be a contender for #1 funniest of all time. Brilliant, unafraid and hilarious with dynamic epic sci-fi plots as a bonus every episode.

It's on it's way to the top of the list and if you'd seen it you'd know.

Epic jokes, deep ideas. Loved it.

The most intelligent by far.

15 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.

I love this show

16 Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! is the first incarnation of the long-running Hanna-Barbera Saturday morning cartoon series Scooby-Doo.

Shaggy is the funniest cartoon character of all time if you really think deeply about what he says.

17 Archer

Sketching balances between modern and retro, characters and jokes are edgy and plots are well thought of. The eponymous character is something of a James Bond caricature working for a private secret agency called ISIS (unlucky coincidence, show started way before the Islamic State was a thing) who combines vitriolic irony, surprisingly huge knowledge of scientific, pop and historic trivia and idiocy of Jackassic proportions. The rest of the characters are even edgier, including the Hitler-clone scientist of the agency and the voicing is done by several acclaimed actors, who in my opinion give some of their best performances.

As a bonus, it has a killer spy theme in the intro, only criticism I have heard about it is that some people can't stand the constant shouting of the characters.

Sterling Archer's sarcastic attitude is hilarious and he is very easy to relate to, also the crazy Car CHERYL does.

Should be way higher on this list. Amazing show!

18 Teen Titan Go! 'Teen Titans Go!' is an American animated television series produced by Cartoon Network. The show follows a superhero group called the Teen Titans, and shows what happens when they go home and have silly adventures. This show is Cartoon Network's revival of the popular 2003-2006 American animated television show, 'Teen Titans'.

I have... mixed thoughts about Teen Titans Go. Though the animation is choppy, it's still bright and energetic? The drawing style is uninspired, the voice actors grate on my nerves... Jeebus, watch Infinity Train.

Buns, ketchup, pickles, cheese! Put that pattie in between, it's burger, what what, its burger!

It's so funny. I mean one time I laughed so hard I started crying literally.

It's my fave show of all time. Except the meatball episode which sucked.

19 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 6, 2005, following Super Bowl XXXIX, with the rest of the first season airing three months later beginning May 1, 2005. American Dad! is a joint production between Underdog Productions, Fuzzy Door Productions and 20th Television Animation and syndicated by 20th Television.

This should be in the top ten instead of Family Guy. Family Guy hasn't made me laugh since the Star Wars parodies they did. American Dad almost always makes me laugh.

Shouldn't be 15? What. And the Simpsons is not funny. American dad should be at least number 2

This should be number 1. Roger is the best.

I love the way it crushes the celebrities!

20 Adventure Time Adventure Time is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network. The series follows the adventures of a boy named Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio)—a dog with the magical power to change shape more.

This is so amazing, all the cross links, Lich, Golb, Glob, wish makers, Orgalorg, ice king, Finn and the comet. Even adults could watch this show

Best show ever! Should be number 1 for sure

Haters dislike this show?! Unacceptable!

It's cool. That's all I have to say.

21 The Boondocks The Boondocks is an American animated sitcom created by Aaron McGruder for Cartoon Network's late-night programming block, Adult Swim. It is based upon his comic strip of the same name. The series premiered on November 6, 2005.

If you're white, you might not like it, but The Boondocks is 20 times better than Family Guy. I haven't laughed at Family Guy since I started watching The Boondocks. Family Guy is an okay show, but the flashbacks are the funny parts, not the show itself. On the other hand, The Boondocks is hilarious and never bores me. It's also based on truth and real events, and it spoofs people like 50 Cent and others. Additionally, it has better voice characters and a better theme, which makes Family Guy look like a horrible show, despite having ten seasons compared to The Boondocks' three.

Highly underrated cerebral humor chock-full of memorable side-splitting, crying laughing moments...I blame a sprinkling of racism with a dash of American White guilt for the lack of mainstream reception of this show.

How is this not number 1?

22 Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life is an American animated television series created by Joe Murray for Nickelodeon. The series centers on the surreal life of an anthropomorphic Australian-immigrant wallaby named Rocko as well as his friends: the gluttonous steer Heffer, the neurotic turtle Filburt, and Rocko's faithful more.

I think Rocko deserves more love and attention than Fairly Odd Parents because, when you compare it to modern episodes of FOP, it's got better writing/humor, and more likable characters.

Why is this show always so underrated/neglected so horribly on mainstream lists of the best cartoons of all time, when it clearly belongs on the top ten?

I love this show so much! It's got good animation, nice music, great writing, amazing satire, and memorably funny characters.

To shorten what the previous person said:
1. The show is indeed hilarious
2. It's for adults
3. Why haven't more people watched it?

23 My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is an animated children's television series based on the fourth incarnation of Hasbro's My Little Pony franchise. The show follows a studious unicorn (later an alicorn) pony named Twilight Sparkle (Tara Strong) and her friends Applejack (Ashleigh Ball), Rarity (Tabitha St. Germain), Fluttershy (Andrea Libman), Rainbow Dash (Ball), Pinkie Pie (Libman), and dragon assistant Spike (Cathy Weseluck). They travel on adventures and help others around Equestria while solving problems that arise in their own friendships.

This show is mostly for educational purposes by learning friendship morals, but the entertainment is NOT worth it. Good animation and morals, even though its cute, but NOT the best; sometimes annoying and creepy.

Rating: 7.0/10
Grade Letter: C-

If you're looking for shows that have amazing entertainment for fun, then this show is not for you; Mediocre cartoon, but NOT the best. The biggest problem of the show is the fanbase full of bronies, praising this show as something special in life; Inaccurately overrating this show to out-rank other cartoons. Good for education, NOT THE BEST FOR ENTERTAINMENT.

Why is this last? Come on now this is some quality television! Meanwhile people like Breadwinners ( a horrible show) but not this. Seriously, what?! That infuriates me, sorry to be a nuisance but in my opinion this sickens me.

Not that funny, but a good show for those who like action and fight scenes nevertheless.

It's funny like spongebob, creative like adventure time, and family friendly like phineas and ferb

24 Aqua Teen Hunger Force Aqua Teen Hunger Force is an American animated sitcom created by Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro for Cartoon Network's late night programming block, Adult Swim.

Actually, on it's 3rd season, it's called Aqua Something You Know Whatever!

25 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.

One of the best cartoons ever.people just make bad cartoons now about love. Their just teaching little kids inappropriate things

The best cartoon ever
