Best Adult Cartoons


The Top Ten

1 South Park 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.

I like the first top 3, but I have to say the most hilarious of them 3 is South Park. Of course The Simpsons and Family Guy have limitations because they go on national broadcast and South Park has almost no limits... but to me head to head comparing all characters and the issues touched, South Park wins by far.

South Park has a wider list of funny characters than the Simpsons and Family Guy.

Matt and Trey already explained why family guy is horrible, the simpsons, king of the hill and cartman agree, so why isn't south park #1? Family guy is SO overrated with so many limitations.

COME ON! Family Guy is so cheap that they have to result to retarded flashbacks that have NOTHING to do with the plot! The Simpsons is a good show, but not as good as South Park, SOUTH PARK IS THE BEST T.V. SHOW EVER! - pancakedude7

South Parks's satirical humor is the best, along with the amazing plots and characters they have (Eric Cartman as one of my personal favorites). I also love how South Park makes fun of EVERYONE. Politics, religion, and basicaly everything.

2 The Simpsons The Simpsons The Simpsons is a cartoon that started in 1989, and is still running as of 2017. It is about a man named Homer and his family going through a long series of misadventures.

The simpsons is one of the written shows of all time. It has a memorable cast even though it has about ten times more characters than most other sitcoms; it can do a show about a topic in society without it being it preachy. In its prime, the show was the funniest or one of the funniest shows in history. They the simpsons is not as funny as it use to be, but there are much less funny and unimaginative shows on T.V.. It can still have a good joke a few times in an episode. It doesn't need to resort to a cut away gag and other jokes that have no relevance to the plot or anything going on. A show that does this all the time is family guy. Even now, it still has better writing than family guy because family guy has always has had very undeveloped characters and horrible writing. I will admit that family guy is funny, it is not a clever kind of funny. The simpsons is one of the best sitcoms and T.V. shows of all time.

Homer giving Bart the "sex talk":
H- Do you know why me and Mom sleep in the same bed?
B- Cause we're poor?
H- that's right, and we're poor because we have children. This is the process in which they are made...

I used to be obsessed with this show. Even though it's not as funny as it used to be, I still love The Simpsons with all my heart's content. - AO1-H1KAR1

This is awesome except it's a kid friendly show and isn't innapropriate. - AlphaQ

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

I love pretty much anything sci-fi, but even without that element, Futurama is still my 2nd favorite cartoon ever (behind Gravity Falls) because it's just so damn well-done as a T.V. show overall. It has all the things that a quality series needs: great characters, immersive plot, unique elements, & top-notch writing/creativity. Unlike Matt Groening's older, more-famous "Simpsons", it actually knew not to overstay its welcome, which is why I actually don't mind how it ended already, leaving the fans satisfied without getting stale & overdone. Not to mention how memorable even the episodes & moments were. If you give me almost any quote from this series I would instantly recognize it. While Community got their "six seasons & a movie", Futurama made nine seasons & FOUR movies (I could do without the 2nd of those 4, but it's still a good overall count). The show even survived cancellation when Comedy Central picked it up from retirement, giving us episodes with just as good quality. It ...more

This & spongebob is my childhood I will cry on the last episode I can't believe this is the last season ever

I Really want this show to be back up. I am sure many people would be happy to see Season 8 of Futurama than Season 29 of The Simpsons - Seventies-Music-Fan

Come on guys futurama deserves to at least be above family guy - HazzaInHisMazda

4 Family Guy 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 (Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Idiotic Son), and Stewie more.

It is also the most succesful and simpsons has been going a lot longer and it is unlike the rest of American animations visually good

I met seth once and now I inspired to create an adult cartoon comic strip series myself these days.

Family guy rocks man especialy baby stewie keep rocking stewie

It seems today that all you see, are violence in movies and sex on T.V.! - Pixtol

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

This is, in my opinion, the ONLY adult cartoon that surpasses The Simpsons. Don't get me wrong- The Simpsons is classic, but I sometimes feel like it gets more credit simply for how long it has been on T.V., (while Rick and Morty did not roll around until about 25 years later.) That said, here are some examples of the sheer weirdness of this show: In the first episode I ever saw, Rick shows Morty that he has created an endless world known as a "miniverse" inside his car battery. (The episode is entitled "The Ricks Must Be Crazy".) In another episode, Morty travels inside the body of a hobo dressed as Santa Claus. ("Anatomy Park".) There is simply no other cartoon that has the same wonderfully weird trippiness that this one does.

The newest adult comedy rocks. I love the simpsons and Futurama, but this show follows close behind

This show is ridiculously funny! It is the best adult cartoon I have seen so far and it even managed to make its way to my top 3 favourite cartoons.

If I made a top 10 list of the favourite shows I'd seen in my life this would be under 5! this is my absolute favourite cartoon and 1 of my favourite shows! its hilarious,the animation is awesome, the voices are good and their isn't a single episode I hate.The only problems I have is there isn't enough Rick and Morty! and the ending for the last episode of season 3,had me angry yet really upset. Overall though it is a must-see! Wobba Lubba Dub Dub!

6 American Dad American Dad American Dad! is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker, and Matt Weitzman for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

It is fun, fun, fun. And not in a Rebecca Black sense. Really, a great T. V. Show. It is made by the creators of Family Guy and The Cleveland Show, but the humor and plot are way better done than them.

This show rocks. A mixture of family guy and the simpsons.

This is made by the same person who made family guy

This should be number 2 and family guy should be number one how is this number 6

Come on king of the hill above this? Once I watched this show and laughed so hard my mom asked if I needed to go to the doctor

I love this show

I like a lot of shows on this list, but nothing can top this! This is one of, if not, the funniest show on T.V.!

9 Beavis and Butt-head Beavis and Butt-head Beavis and Butt-Head is an American animated sitcom created and designed by Mike Judge. The series originated from Frog Baseball, a 1992 short film by Judge originally aired on Liquid Television.

I would not expect for a show about two underachieving high school students doing stupid things to work so well. But it does. Mike Judge is a genius and Beavis and Butthead is, in my opinion, the first show since Tom & Jerry to execute a simple plot so well. Many times, their mischievous acts cause a complex series of events that they don't even notice taking place. Best of all, what could be better than hearing their commentary about all of those music videos? - surgeonsanic

This show is great the best love it

I remember watching them react to Black Sabbath's Iron man and they said thet Ozzy was an "Old fart". Haha ^-^

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

Should be at least number 3 behind South Park and Simpsons, no offense but I hate family guy and American dad. I am so sad this is the last season :(

The funniest. Carl's the best t. v. character ever. - 15rt

Carl is so funny and so is shake should be top 5 at least

This show is better than family guy

11 The Cleveland Show 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.

This show made family guy a good show.

Boondocks and black dynamite knock off

Come on, Tenth?
This is much better than King of the Hill or Beavis and Butthead.

12 Archer

Finally, a list that Archer's on. This is hilarious, how the hell is Robot Chicken higher than this. RC is TERRIBLE.

Should be top three. Danger zone. No more.

This show is in the Danger Zone.

This should be in the top 10!

13 The Ren & Stimpy Show The Ren & Stimpy Show The Ren & Stimpy Show, often simply referred to as Ren & Stimpy, is an American animated television series created by John Kricfalusi for Nickelodeon.

If we're talking about the original, then yes. However, if we're referring to the Adult Party Cartoon revival... NO! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Even though it aired on Nickelodeon, I sometimes find it hard to believe that this show was meant for kids. Despite that, however, I enjoy Ren and Stimpy for all of the hilarious lines, insane animation, and clever writing. In closing, if you didn't like this show...than you're an EEDIOT! (No offense to the people who take it seriously. I was just trying to quote Ren's catchphrase.

Ren And Stimpy isn't for kids in my opinion but its surely hillarious but the APC is the worst thing to ever grace television

14 Rocko's Modern Life 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.

It may be for kids, but as an adult, I don't see why we can't enjoy it as well. It's got good jokes, great writing, clever setups, likable (and hilarious) characters, spot-on voice acting, creative designs, and an amazing amount of innuendoes. In other words, this show is awesome!

It seems like a kid's show but it has so many references

Choking chicken will probably get past kids heads

This show is awesome! But I don't like sleeping in front of the T.V. when it comes on late @ night. - Target

15 Total Drama Island Total Drama Island

This show is for kid's and I know because my 6 year old sister watches it

Not really for adults, more fore teens

I count it as an adult show. - CardboardBox

16 BoJack Horseman

Maybe not the funniest of them, but I respect it the most, because of the one-season-storyline (which works! ) and Bojack being probably the most relatable cartoon character I've ever seen.

Witty and intellectual. Bojack Horseman tells a tale that is very rekatable but also very funny

17 The Venture Bros. The Venture Bros. The Venture Bros. is an American animated television series that premiered on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim on February 16, 2003. It is considered to be an action/adventure series that mixes comedy and drama while chronicling the lives and adventures of the Venture family: well-meaning but incompetent more.

Love this show

19 Regular Show 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.

I do get that people like this show, but it's overrated. Regular Show is for kids not adults - CardboardBox

It's not for adults. I Watch it all the time. It's more of a teen show like South Park, Family Guy and Adventure Time.. - AlphaQ

Regular Show is not an adult show. - GravityFallsAndWBBLover18

Regular show is rated TVPG and is for teens it has mild swearing lots of sexual innuondoe characters are implied and seen drinking alcohole and its very vilonte like in one episode rigby had this backstage pass that showed satan chopping off a guys head with his guiatar and blood comes out and the creator has said he's aiming at the 10-18 year old crowd in the cartoon making process so it would still count as a Adult cartoon and the creator has said lots of times in interveiws that its not for little kids - danny700
