Top 10 Best Things About Samurai Jack

I'll admit I didn't really watch this show growing up because it was a little too violent and unusual for me at the time, and at first, I wasn't gonna watch it because I thought it wasn't gonna age well like how a lot of kids' shows I grew up with haven't. But now I've started to get into it, and I gotta say it's one of the best shows I've ever seen (animated or not). And I have 10 reasons as to why it's such a flawless piece of animated art.
The Top Ten
1 Great Writing

A lot of the episodes were very well written. Each one had its own simple story that was easy to follow, and there were some creative plots as well.

2 It's Very Creative

It has all sorts of different creatures and bizarre-looking characters. It also has some creative stories, like Jack fighting his own dark side (Mad Jack) and entering a haunted house.

3 Great Action Scenes

Some of the best action I've ever seen in any animation. Jack's fight with Aku's giant robot beetles was graphic and epic!

I love the action scenes!

4 Great Animation

I like how the art style has no lines. It makes it look even more beautiful.

5 Few Bad Episodes

It was strange that there was no decline in quality as the show went on, which made it even better!

Which is pretty rare for a cartoon show.

6 Good Character Design

The art style is beautiful, and the designs themselves are very intricate. I have to admit, Demongo has the best design in the show.

7 It Doesn't Fit Any Bad Cartoon Stereotypes

Almost all cartoons are stereotyped as being too goofy and child-friendly, but Samurai Jack doesn't fit those stereotypes at all. It is a show that had a lot of effort put into it, which is greatly appreciated.

8 It Breaks Stereotypes of Western Animation Being Dumb Cartoons for Kids
9 It Mixes Different Genres

It reminds me of The Dark Tower, which mixes sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and western. This show also blends a variety of genres such as action, sci-fi, fantasy, chanbara, cyberpunk, sword and sorcery, comedy, and drama.

10 You Can Take It Seriously

That's why I like the show. Then again, I prefer serious stuff over funny things these days.

I can actually see the appeal of Samurai Jack, unlike shows like My Little Pony or Steven Universe (which are just for younger kids). Samurai Jack isn't as overrated, and I don't hear about it everywhere I go.

The Contenders
11 Awesome Theme Song
12 It Doesn't Depend on Nostalgia to Stay Relevant

I agree with almost everything except this one fact. If you watched season 5, episode 6, there were at least four scenes that showcased Jack's recent journeys.

13 It's Aged Really Well
14 Great Voice Acting

You have to love the all-star cast that this one-of-a-kind Cartoon Network original program has. From the veteran voice actor Phil LaMarr (who played Marvin in Pulp Fiction and portrays Samurai Jack, whose actions speak more to his character than his words), to other well-known voice actors in the animation industry like John DiMaggio, Tara Strong, and Tom Kenny. Calling Samurai Jack's cast an all-star lineup is an understatement. And of course, let's not forget the legendary Mako Iwamatsu, the voice of the Shogun of Sorrow, the Deliverer of Darkness, and the Shape-Shifting Master known as Aku!

15 It's Dark
16 Great Characters
17 Scaramouche is Amazing

He's just amazing, easily my favorite character from the great Tom Kenny. Even though he was killed off toward the end, his musical style and genitalia jokes will always have a soft place in my heart. A hilarious character from a phenomenal final season.

18 It's Very Eclectic

The epilogue.

I appreciate this list once and for all. That's what I call flawless art.

19 Perfect Amount of Violence
20 Season 5 Played on Adult Swim

I only put this on here because, in my opinion, something as phenomenal as Samurai Jack should have been shown on a more grownup channel. I'm just saying not everyone will take it seriously if it plays on a kids' channel.

21 It Appeals to Multiple Audiences
