Top 10 Best Cartoons of All Time

A cartoon refers to any television series that primarily employs hand crafted animation. These animated series are widely popular amongst children and adults alike and have captured the hearts of generations. From classic shows that defined the golden era of cartoons to modern masterpieces, the world of animation has given us numerous shows that are both entertaining and meaningful.

This list includes critical hits, award winners, and high rated shows that have made an impact on the world of animation. Whether it's the nostalgia of childhood favorites or the awe-inspiring creativity of new releases, these top ten cartoons are a must-watch for any fan of the genre. So sit back, grab a bowl of popcorn, and let's take a trip down memory lane as we explore the best cartoons of all time.
The Top Ten
1 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... read more

This is an AMAZING cartoon. SpongeBob began in 1999. It didn't achieve major success until season 2. Season 3 elevated SpongeBob to new heights, although a hiatus occurred in 2003 during this season due to the movie being made. After the movie, things went a little downhill. Seasons 4 and 5 were still pretty good, but seasons 6 and 7 were pretty bad. However, season 8 brought back some of the old humor, and season 9 so far is even better than season 8. Season 10 is coming next year and is supposed to be the longest and best SpongeBob season ever! There's a new movie coming next year, and hopefully, SpongeBob will be as good as the first 3 seasons!

I have an interesting theory that the show is just some kid's imagination. I think the kid's name is "Bobby," and that he imagines an underwater city to escape the real world. This explains why SpongeBob acts so childish and doesn't know that much. He is just a kid and is only starting to learn these things. The people and places are all based on Bobby's life. Gary represents Bobby's cat. Like a snail, the cat is slow and doesn't have much time to play. Patrick is his best friend, who is homeschooled and hardly leaves his house. Some would say he "lives under a rock." Squidward is Bobby's neighbor. He is very old and doesn't like to be annoyed by the boy. Mr. Krabs is his father, who always cares about his money and never spends a single nickel. Plankton is the school bully. He always steals Bobby's lunch, but Bobby always gets it back. Speaking of food, Bobby's favorite fruit is a pineapple, and he jokes that the burgers in the cafeteria are made from poop and calls them "Crappy Patties," but he still enjoys them. Sandy is Bobby's crush. However, the girl hardly pays attention to him, so he imagines that she is a good friend. Finally, the only companion he has at home is a pet goldfish. This explains why the cartoon takes place at the bottom of the ocean.

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... read more

Okay, so maybe the modern episodes suck, but man, just watch the first eight seasons. Well-rounded, consistent characters with conflicting motivations who are so fun to watch (especially Homer), amazing dialogue, unforgettable plot lines... this show was amazing and certainly worth your time. Just... if you are or have kids under the age of ten or twelve, don't show this to them. It's fantastic, yes, but kind of too vulgar for younger viewers. It deals with some sexual themes and violence and stuff like that. Also, the characters aren't the best role models, and I can't say it always teaches great lessons. But the stories are great, relatable, and really funny. So watch it, if you can.

The Simpsons isn't only the longest-running cartoon. It's also the most well-rounded by far. Famous guest stars almost every week, well-written stories and jokes, great visuals and animation, top-quality music, and a complete, detailed universe of interesting, politically incorrect characters guarantee intelligent and stupid fun for ALL ages.

Always fully loaded with pop-culture and historic references, the multi-layered story arcs intertwine perfectly in most episodes. Frequently reflecting recent real-world events, conflicts, dilemmas, and emotions, it is not shy about addressing adult topics in a smart and commonly original way.

Some 10 years ago, it did have some less critically acclaimed seasons, but it definitely picked up in recent seasons. There are many real gems lately.

Younger viewers might not even be aware that when it started, some episodes were very controversial (think Mr. Smithers' sexuality back in '89-'90) and paved the way for mainstream acceptance for later series like South Park and Family Guy. Given it has stayed relevant, original, and fun over 25 years, I cannot help but state this is definitely the #1 cartoon of our time.

3 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 Falls, Oregon, while on summer vacation.

The characters are three-dimensional, there are good mysteries, and there are no toilet jokes at all. It's probably not suitable for younger children because it can be dark at times, but it is very well written and appeals to pre-teens, teens, and even some adults. There are also no stereotypes, laugh tracks, or even any fashion-obsessed teenage main characters like in other Disney shows. The art style is also very original, as is the theme song. Even the cast is very charismatic, featuring Kristen Schaal, Jason Ritter - son of John Ritter - and many guest stars, such as John Oliver, John DiMaggio, and Patton Oswalt. This is definitely unlike any other cartoon I've ever seen.

Gravity Falls is the best cartoon ever created, and let me tell you why. Most cartoons that I watch are basically the same thing over and over, with no progression or character development. But Gravity Falls has a plot, amazing characters, mystery, and suspense. The whole show fits together so nicely that it makes me want to cry from happiness. I understand that not all people want actual progression because they don't have time to keep up, but if you watch them all online and in order, everything will make sense, and it will be the best experience of your life. This is the only show for which I counted down the days until the next episode was released. And I'm still in pain that it ended, never getting over that.

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.

My passion and love for this show will never end. Sure, it's crass, it's crude, and it's pretty over the top, but you can't judge something by its surface. Unlike something like Mr. Pickles (not trying to offend fans), there's a really positive spirit behind that shocking exterior. These messages leave you thinking but also laughing because, readers, they're pointing out everything wrong with society! It makes you realize what has become of the world and how you can try to fix it. A bonus is, maybe this is my own bias, but I love this art style. The characters are perfect, the voice acting cracks me up, and the writing is unbelievably sharp. It can be low-brow, but I adore this show. I highly recommend it for everyone 13 and older to watch this warm, fuzzy, paper masterpiece. Thank you, Matt Stone and Trey Parker.

I've been a fan since just before my 13th birthday in 2011, while many others have been fans since the beginning in 1997. I prefer characters like Kyle and Wendy, while the majority enjoys characters like Cartman, Randy, and Butters. I somewhat enjoy the episode-to-episode continuity as of late, though South Park seems to have lost viewers in the last couple of years because of it. I'll admit that, given my own opinions, I feel a bit disappointed. But no matter what happens within the show itself and the fandom, I will remain a loyal viewer up to the series finale.

5 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.

Looney Tunes should be number one. Not only were the characters well-drawn, but the writing of the dialogue was so witty and creative. Plus, incorporating classical music was genius.

I took my kids to Symphony Hall in Chicago to see Bugs Bunny on Broadway. Just thinking about the live orchestra playing with perfect precision to those classic cartoons gives me chills. That performance had a profound impact on my five-year-old daughter, who had never seen musical notes in her life. When we got home, she drew out the notes she remembered seeing when they performed "Little Brown Jug." I recommend watching the clip for those who have never seen it.

What could possibly be better than Bugs Bunny playing tricks on Elmer Fudd, Daffy and Porky being friends, and the Roadrunner being chased by the Coyote?

It's an IGN 10/10 show because of its lack of computer animation and its age. It only died out about three years ago due to controversy, I think. There was only one voice actor, Mel Blanc, and don't tell me that even one episode wasn't entertaining or funny. Some episodes you may have never seen had a good message. These episodes were made during WWII. This show has always been my favorite by far, and I am very disappointed that it doesn't run on mainstream television channels like Cartoon Network.

6 Avatar: The Last Airbender Avatar: The Last Airbender is an American animated television series that aired for three seasons on Nickelodeon from 2005 to 2008. Avatar: The Last Airbender is set in an Asiatic-like world in which some people are able to manipulate the classical elements by use of psychokinetic variants of Chinese martial arts, known as "bending". This show is often seen as one of the greatest cartoons of all time... read more

This show is a masterpiece. It reinvented what it meant to be a cartoon by not being some ridiculous slapstick comedy that relies on shallow and unrealistic plot lines just to gain a laugh. Avatar was one of the first successful cartoons to introduce an overarching plot, a storyline that stretches over the entire series. By doing this, they were able to show great character development. Sokka turned from a narcissistic, misogynistic jerk to a man deserving of leading the Water Tribe, while still maintaining his comedic elements. Aang turned from a bubbly little kid to a true hero. Katara turned from an overbearing supporting character to a strong, independent warrior. Zuko probably displayed the most change, literally turning from villain to hero. You get the point. And aside from the main characters, there was an amazing and memorable cast of supporting roles like Iroh, Bumi, and Azula. Aside from characters, the universe they created was so expansive and detailed that the makers used the same universe for their spin-off series, The Legend of Korra. Don't even get me started on the beautiful animation. There was never such an epic yet hilarious cartoon. It definitely deserves to at least break the top 5.

7 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.

Nothing beats this cat and that mouse. Not even each other.

This is seriously amazingly awesome, and I couldn't part with it. It has been a piece of my life since I was a little kiddo and now I am a teen - and I still love it more than ever!

Also, I don't know why it is NOT in the top three! Because it is way better than South Park - especially. Come on, vote for it! And get it to the top because it really, really deserves it!

Wait, the creator of Yogi Bear created this masterpiece of animation. Hanna-Barbera is capable of great things. It's the first cartoon I ever watched. All I knew back then was Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, which is my childhood.

Tom and Jerry is actually funny, but also entertaining. I'd rather watch Tom and Jerry than Scooby-Doo episodes or season 30 of The Simpsons. I like the old Simpsons, not Lisa Goes Gaga.

Probably one of the best cartoons ever, hands down. If you're under, let's say, 40 years old, you probably don't appreciate these older cartoons due to the time these toons came out.

8 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 and size at will. Finn and Jake live in the post-apocalyptic Land of Ooo. Throughout the show, they... read more

Oh, it disappoints me to see such a great show not in the top 10. I know why this is so low. People who say, "It's too random and colorful. Pen Ward was stoned when he wrote it," overlook it and vote for something else. That would be understandable if you had never seen the show and based all your thoughts on the two minutes you've seen. And it's not called "stoned". It's a little something called creativity. If you don't know why this show has such a large adult fanbase, I'll give you the gist: This show is quotable, creative, has likable characters, is funny, clever, and - big shocker for the people I've described earlier - it's not just "random to be random." If you were to watch it, the randomness is explained, and not through huge reveals, just bits and pieces of continuity slowly revealing the story's history. In simple words, it's great.

9 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.

Another show that kicked off this decade. This cartoon was the very first that I grew up with. It takes mundane situations and makes them surreal and zany yet fun. However, that formula has been fairly overused, but when you have a variety of unique characters, it can still make the show interesting. The characters' misadventures and stories do get touching and are amazingly funny at satire, but some can also be redundant with pointless filler. Despite its flaws, Regular Show had a great run, and I will cherish it throughout my adulthood forever.

It is the smooth delivery and character development that makes this show enjoyable to watch over all others. While with each new episode most shows seem to reset situations or continue a storyline, Regular Show implements scenarios that end in each episode but still will carry weight later on in the next. We watch as these experiences begin to weigh on the choices of the characters and make them all the more enjoyable. Well done.

10 Batman: The Animated Series Batman: The Animated Series is an American animated television series based on the DC Comics superhero Batman.

The dynamic storytelling and unique film noir style are only matched by the high-caliber action scenes and unforgettable cast of characters. This show redefined Batman. The Joker's insane, maniacal schemes, the Riddler's uncanny intellect, Poison Ivy's charms and wiles, and Two-Face's juxtaposition and character development are only matched by the strong, harsh yet kind, caring Batman who knows what it's like to "have a bad day." Alfred's dry wit and Commissioner Gordon's determination and inclusion as part of the Bat-family really make this show complete. Adults, children, and teens can watch this show and each enjoy it on different levels. It is everything a cartoon should be.

Hell yeah! This is my favorite cartoon of all time, not just due to my love for Batman, but because of its amazing storytelling, dark tone, powerful themes, stellar voice acting, and game-changing animation. The characters immerse you in a dark and surreal world, with intense, gritty developments happening all the time. They keep you invested in this series until the very last moment, when everything changes. Every voice actor was a perfect fit for their character, like Kevin Conroy as Batman, Mark Hamill as the Joker, Bob Hastings as Jim Gordon, etc. (and it made most of them famous, too!). Also, this cartoon stands out as an old show whose animation still rivals that of conglomerates like Pixar or DreamWorks. This cartoon changed the way we look at animation as a whole. It took true effort and emotion to make, and it would have been just another random Batman cartoon without it. This show is, without a doubt, the best cartoon of all time.

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

This show is all-around hilarious. It has the awkward working situations and romances of The Office and Parks and Rec, the surreal adventures of Rick and Morty, and the tone of The Simpsons. Mix all of that in with some of the greatest characters in cartoon history (i.e., Bender, Zoidberg), and you've got the greatest cartoon ever. Sure, Looney Tunes is awesome, but come on, compared to nudist scammers who want to rob the world of everything valuable by getting Bender to go back in time and steal them using a code that breaks the universe, it's just plain hilarious.

I like this more than The Simpsons and Family Guy because:

1. Unlike in The Simpsons, the characters don't all look like they have hepatitis (though it did make Homer Simpson more iconic).
2. While it can be cruel at times, unlike Family Guy, it isn't like this all the time, and there really isn't any unnecessary violence.
3. Unlike in both Family Guy and The Simpsons, the show didn't overstay its welcome, and while the last season was kind of lackluster (though it had its gems of episodes), it was still great, and it wrapped up the show pretty nicely.

Vote this to #1!

12 Steven Universe Steven Universe is an American animated television series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network. The show's based around a young boy by the name of Steven Universe, who is a hybrid of a gem and a human. He lives with his gem friends, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl.

In the 21st century, where cartoons are becoming more developed with plots that even threaten to outwit anime, Steven Universe should rise high, along with other great shows like Gravity Falls. Steven Universe tackles some great issues in society, such as dictatorship and individuals feeling pressured. It has creative character designs, beautiful pastel animation, awesome storylines and plots, and most importantly, the emotional connection between characters. If there is one thing Steven Universe has taught me, it's that "perfect" doesn't exist. No one is perfect, and yet we get along with that and are happy with it. This show is the masterpiece of modern cartoons and, even more so, an important lesson for the modern universe.

Steven Universe might look like another run-of-the-mill, bland cartoon where the perfect, invincible Gems are always happy, and there's sunshine and rainbows - The first glance. Don't judge a book by its cover. Steven Universe is a wonderfully thought-out show. It deals with problems such as (but not limited to) growing up and losing a loved one, all in a gentle manner that's appropriate for kids and adults alike. It shows that anyone can be strong in their own ways. And despite Steven Universe's darker backstory, it still manages to be very funny. If you haven't given this show a try, please give it a chance.

13 Teen Titans Teen Titans is an American animated television series created by Glen Murakami, based on the DC Comics characters of the same name.

By far the most incredible show ever made. As I get older, I'm introduced to more and more shows, but Teen Titans will always remain my favorite. There's nothing like that first show you become obsessed with when you're young - when no other show could ever be the same. I love how you can really connect with the characters. Robin and Starfire were always my favorites. The GO version is completely different and is shown for different reasons. Sometimes I watch it, not just for a good laugh, but also for something more. I watch the show to look for clues hinting back to the original, in hopes of Robin and Starfire's relationship. I feel like maybe the creators withhold this stuff in hopes we will keep watching and waiting. It was very clever of them. But still, the original will always have a special place in my heart. That's who the Titans really are to me. That was my childhood. So, I'll keep waiting and hoping. This cartoon was too good. Who knows, maybe Season 6 will come someday!

14 Ed, Edd n 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 cul-de-sac in the fictional town of Peach Creek. Under the unofficial leadership of Eddy, the trio... read more

South Park, SpongeBob, Samurai Jack, Courage the Cowardly Dog - add these and you've got yourself the best era for cartoons: the '90s! As a '90s kid, I have to give it to this show because of how relatable it was. Going out and playing with your friends and getting into trouble in your neighborhood was part of being a kid. Unless you're a late 2000s kid, this show won't relate to staying inside all day playing Minecraft and watching Adventure Time while being on your $700 iPhone with no way of interacting with other people other than through Facebook and tweeting them. Ha! Truly sad, but give them like 10 to 15 years and they will see their kids become antisocial hermits and will understand what the '90s kids were talking about. I imagine the year 2030 will look a lot like the people in Wall-E.

This is one of the best Cartoon Network shows, by far. Easy choice. I really relate to Ed, being so derpy and loving buttered toast. Edd is also really funny and has my favorite voice actor. Eddy is a funny character with funny schemes, but he can get really mean and annoying every once in a while, as can Edd. Ed was the one I never disliked. Rolf, Jonny 2x4, Nazz, Kevin, Jimmy, Sarah, even the Kankers were really fun to watch. The plots and humor were top-notch, making it really awesome. Danny Antonucci must be a genius! ...MeoMeo

15 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.

Why on earth is this not in the top ten? Sure, it's like the War of the great cartoons, but everything it does is awesome. The themes, the plots, the characters (especially Gumball, Darwin, Penny, and Patrick) are all pitch-perfect. And the only reason this actually manages to beat SpongeBob SquarePants is because Squidward is the only character I actually like in that show. Just to make it clear, these people have all saved their town at least once. Homer saved Springfield by stopping a bomb with Bart and ended the Simpson-Griffin grudge. SpongeBob saved Bikini Bottom once and the Krusty Krab numerous times. But Gumball has saved lots of people and made them feel better about themselves, like when Penny revealed her true form and Gumball had to convince her she wasn't a monster. He has been saved more times than I could ever count. So I think the reign of SpongeBob should end, and to me, this is the new champion. Note: The only show that's better is Top Gear.

16 Invader Zim Invader Zim is an American animated television series created by Jhonen Vasquez for Nickelodeon. The series centers on an extraterrestrial named Zim from the planet Irk, and his mission to conquer Earth and enslave the human race along with his malfunctioning robot servant GIR.

An amazing show that for some reason just couldn't stay on television. Fans brought it back a few years later, in 2006, and brought back reruns on Nicktoons a few years after they stopped showing those. It definitely needs more episodes because, although I love it, seeing the same episodes over and over gets old really fast. All in all, it's one of the greats in the era which I consider to have come out with the highest concentration of hilarious and edgy cartoons, 97-03. Back when SpongeBob had its original writers, as well. If the creator and the writers hadn't left after the movie, I doubt SpongeBob would get any of the flak it's gotten these past few years. Or if they had just ended it after the movie, it would have easily been the best cartoon of all time, even surpassing this one.

Actually, I think the movie would have been a good stopping point for the series. There have been a few good episodes after 2004, but EVERY episode before the movie was a classic. Invader Zim ending was kind of a good thing in a way. It ended before it could become mediocre.

17 Courage the Cowardly Dog Courage the Cowardly Dog is an American animated horror comedy television series created by John R. Dilworth for Cartoon Network as part of the network's Cartoon Cartoons block.

If you need a reason why Courage is one of the best cartoons of all time, check out these episodes: Freaky Fred, Courage in the Big Stinking City, King Ramses' Curse, Perfect, Remembrance of Courage Past, and Last of the Starmakers. All fantastic episodes. The last three are the saddest episodes of the series.

There's just something about Courage that makes you love him. The show is definitely creepy at times, but somehow the little pink pup always pulls through and makes you want to keep watching. Very, VERY unique cartoon with a vivid world in the middle of Nowhere.

This is my personal favorite show. It is very artistic and has an abstract mood and visuals. A very creative show that is loved by many critics. Plus, it has the saddest series finale I've ever seen.

18 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.

Scooby-Doo has lasted longer than any cartoon that you have put on this list and at least deserves to be in the top two, if not number one. The two most iconic cartoon characters in the world are Mickey Mouse and Scooby-Doo, and you need to respect this show way more than it has been given credit for on this list. Without Scooby on this list, it is irrelevant and just straight-up garbage.

This is the best Scooby-Doo cartoon out there! I loved it! It's funny, scary, and interesting, all mixed into one great cartoon masterpiece! It should be number 5 in all cartoons, 1 in old cartoons, and 10/10 on a scale of greatness. Hanna-Barbera's greatest creation is this amazing cartoon that deserves to be in the top ten! Thank you, William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, for making such a great cartoon!

Scooby-Doo has been the only cartoon that I continue to watch even now. Watching this show when I was five years old is the reason why mystery is my favorite genre today. For many people, including myself, those meddling kids will always have a very special place in our hearts. Love you, Scooby-Doo x.

19 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 Flynn and his British stepbrother Ferb Fletcher on summer vacation.

Even though this show is popular, what I really liked about it was that it was the only Best Bro Show (in my 2009-2014 generation) that wasn't ruined by a girl (other than SpongeBob). I'm not being hateful, but in cool shows like Gumball and Regular Show, halfway through the series they decided to throw in a girlfriend for Gumball, Mordecai, and Rigby, which made the dynamic duos grow apart. I like how Jeff Swampy Marsh and David (or Dave) Povenmire didn't introduce a love life for Phineas. I mean, there was a time towards the end of the series where Phineas kissed Isabella, but I didn't get enraged because that episode came out the week before the finale.

This show is absolutely amazing and my favorite cartoon of all time! I love this cartoon with all my heart! It's funny, creative, and every character is fun and likable. I recommend this cartoon not just to kids, but to EVERYONE! I also recommend the first 8 seasons of The Simpsons, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Avatar: The Legend of Korra, Wander Over Yonder, Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball, Star vs the Forces of Evil, Looney Tunes, and Tom & Jerry if you can find them.

20 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... read more

Family Guy is a perfect definition of my humor: it is politically incorrect, yet still not only features shock-value content but also silly and goofy humor. Peter is a random and childish/childlike character who can barely say a word that doesn't seem hilariously stupid. It works because it shines through that Seth MacFarlane is, in fact, an intelligent person with awesome views on the world and is pretty much laughing at the characters and world he created, not so much with them. Family Guy may have gotten more graphic over the years, but the goofiness has stayed the same. It is the way it is delivered that makes it work so well.

So far on this website, I have been negative about the show. Well, that's because of the modern episodes, and they're HORRIBLE! All of the characters went downhill! However, this IS a best list, so I'm going to talk about the positive aspects of the show before it got uncanceled. The humor was top-notch, and the characters were likable. It also had a charm to it. Modern episodes: -10/10. Old episodes: 8/10.

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

Honestly, I'm not generally into Adult Swim. I know that's kind of strange, but it's just that they're so inconsistent. They release one great show like Robot Chicken, and then they release Squidbillies. They release Venture Bros, then they release Mr. Pickles. But out of the shows they've released, this is far and away the best. It has sharp, clever humor, fantastic plots (I mean, how do you beat switching dimensions because you ruined your old planet with a love potion? Just add parasites that infest people's memories!), great characters, and awesome action scenes. The only way to describe this masterpiece is as if Futurama meets American Dad, and they are crossbred with Invader Zim. That result is then consumed by Ren and Stimpy. And if that doesn't sound awesome, then you're weird.

Bizarre and funny. Cool and smart. Amazingly animated, and the voices are great. Impressive and awesome. Creative and sometimes even heartfelt. This cartoon has deep characters and it's mysterious, like what's behind Rick's giant mind. I only just started watching this cartoon two weeks ago and, even though I've only seen the first season on DVD, this is my new favorite cartoon of all time. Shows like Regular Show and SpongeBob have nothing on this extremely good cartoon. My two favorite minor characters of all time have to be Dr. Bloom and Snowball. I could write a 700-page book on how much I love this cartoon. I am watching it right now. Please don't judge me on everything that I've said. Goodbye, and Wubba Lubba Dub Dubs!

22 Star vs. The Forces of Evil "Star vs. the Forces of Evil" is an American animated television comedy produced by Disney Television Animation for Disney XD. It was created by Daron Nefcy and developed by Jordana Arkin and Dave Wasson. The series follows teenage magical princess from the dimension of Mewni Star Butterfly and her teenage human roommate and best friend from Earth Marco Diaz as they live their daily lives, go on adventures... read more

Perfect, perfect, PERFECT! A great cartoon that defies many stereotypes! First of all, when you look at the main character, you might think that Star is another blonde-haired, blue-eyed Disney princess. Well, she is all that, but move over, Sleeping Beauty! There's more to this princess! Instead of sitting on her throne and waiting for her Prince Charming, she kicks monster butt with her friend Marco. And you don't see something like this too often! This show is also a lot funnier and more original than some other cartoons on today. This show is great. I highly suggest it!

At first, I thought this was a dumb cartoon because I looked at random clips of their episodes on YouTube a while back. A couple of weeks ago, my internet friend suggested cartoons to me that I should watch. She brought up this one. Then I said to myself, "Why not watch the very first episode and see how it goes?" So then I did, and I thought it was pretty hilarious. After that, I got more into the series, and it was pretty worth watching! It's a good cartoon to watch. I watched it because I was bored all the time. So if you're bored or have any spare time and have nothing to do with it, you should go watch this.

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... read more

There are so many comments here talking about stereotypes, which is the first mistake. My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is unique in its style. This cartoon show breaks those stereotypes most of you talk about, so that just lets me know you do not know the show well. And I'm not going to tell all of you "go and watch more episodes." No, just watch a documentary about the show, called "Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony," and you'll see why this cartoon show does not have those stereotypes. Let me tell you, if you say this cartoon show has stereotypes, then you don't know a single thing about it. By the way, one episode for all of you: "Bridle Gossip" from Season 1. I hope you enjoy it!

Honestly, most people who hate the show haven't watched it at all. They just see it as something targeted for preschool girls. And there is some truth to that. The original show was made for that age group. The episodes were nothing more than an extended advertisement for the MLP toy line.

But that was Gen 1 MLP. The show in question is Gen 4. Gen 4 was made to actually be a cartoon. Though they still supported the toy line, that was never Gen 4 creator Lauren Faust's main focus. She wanted to make a show that broke the expectations and clichés for all the past generations of this show.

To quote The Last Jedi, "Let the past die, kill it. It's the only way to become who you're truly meant to be."

That's what this show does. It doesn't care about where it came from or what everyone expects it to be. The story becomes something of its own, unique and radiant among countless other works.

My Little Pony - it's a show about ponies, magic, but above all, friendship. Yeah, yeah, groan and cringe all you want. Get it out! I'm telling you, though, the friendship isn't just a cheesy go-to option for what the episode's lesson was. It delves into the deeper aspects of it, the good, the bad, the ugly, and everything in between. The show, its lessons, its characters, are never black and white. They're complicated and seek the deeper meaning, warring within themselves - like all of us do every day, which makes it so relatable.

Friendship is as much a part of real life as anything else. Too often we take it for granted and don't realize how little we understand about the love that is shared between friends. It isn't like the love of a couple or the love of a family. It's something altogether unique, wonderful, and magical.

I can honestly say that I believe that friendship is magic. You can't love the show and not believe it!

24 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... read more

This show is the best that Seth MacFarlane has ever done since Johnny Bravo in the '90s. It's funny, with Stan who is actually hilarious, Francine who is the typical hot mother, Steven who is funny in his attempts to be cool, Hayley who is the hippy daughter, and Roger who is the funniest character on the show, along with Klaus. American Dad can never die.

American Dad should be at number one. It is just so funny. Roger is hilarious and so over-the-top. Francine is funnier than any other cartoon mom. She made Stan and Hayley go out to bond, threatening to cut their faces with a wine bottle if they didn't. You wouldn't see Linda, Donna, Marge, or even Lois doing that. The other characters are funny and good too.

Seth is actually trying to appeal to conservatives. After Brian, Seth is actually not all that bad. Steve and Roger are a perfect couple and a big improvement over Family Guy.

25 The Fairly Oddparents The Fairly OddParents is an American animated television series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon.

This T.V. Show was very awesome in the first 5 seasons, but then Season 6 they started to run out of ideas, by introducing Poof. By season 9, I lost interest, but do NOT get me started on Season 10. I hate season 10 with a passion. It ruined my childhood, a bad theme song, getting rid of the good secondary characters, and introducing CHLOE! Now I'm so glad this show will be cancelled soon...

This deserves to be higher. Though I don't like Chloe and the show's recent seasons, this show should be at least in the top 15. Honestly, I think this show is better than Adventure Time.

Dude, this deserves to be higher. It's lower than Adventure Time and Family Guy, which is weird in my opinion. I think it should be between 15-10. Very good show.
