Best Adult Cartoonsqwertygoodness
The Top Ten
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.
I'm glad that this show is number #1. It makes me laugh all of the time and unlike the Simpsons or Family Guy it has been consistently funny over the past 20 years. Everyone knows that those two shows have pretty much lost their spark, but meanwhile South Park is still fantastic and creative, I mean heck, it only takes the creators 6 days to make an entire episode that manages to be hilarious and clever, and yet it takes other show creators a year to make an episode that usually doesn't match up with South Park's quality and humor.
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.
Friendly faces everywhere, humble folks without temptation!

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...
Even if you can't stand The Simpsons, one thing you can't deny is that even in it's 29th season, it's a masterpiece. So far in 2018, this is the most watched adult cartoon. South Park is slowly dying, like Family Guy. But The Simpsons and American Dad are shows which have recently started to gain really high standards again.
It really is, but I'm 11 and I watch it so it can be for kids too.V 27 Comments
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.
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.
The newest adult comedy rocks. I love the simpsons and Futurama, but this show follows close behind
I Hate Rick And Morty That Show Is Inappropriate It Has Lot Of Swears in The EpisodesV 40 Comments
Do you that feeling where you feel like you've found something that gives you all the joy you've ever wanted? Well then welcome to Futurama. This show had everything that a good show needed, from legendary characters to creative plots. Not only that, but it provided the audience practically everything it wanted, from a ship that became canon (Fry X Leela for the two who don't know) to the possibility of it coming back. While a few people here and there think it started going downhill as time went on, I think all ten seasons were equally phenomenal. Unfortunately, Netflix recently got rid of the first 6 seasons. But going back to what I said before, all ten were amazing. So please, just please please PLEASE check out Futurama. You will LOVE IT. And if you don't, then you probably don't have a soul
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
Tops my list of best show ever. - KalloFox34V 14 Comments
I have a lot of respect for this show. Early seasons were its finest. The early seasons redefined adult cartoons. But sadly, now it is a spite filled hateful shell of its amazing old self. Some late season episodes are good, but the new ones are offensive and mean spirited. I recommend early seasons, as the early seasons of family guy deserve to be on this list.
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.
Yes, the FCC.V 20 Comments
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 ^-^
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
What I like about this show is that it’s not all about the humor like family guy.V 11 Comments
This Show Has To Be The Best Adult Cartoon Ever
It Actually Has Morals Despite How Adult It Is
Great show because it's different than other adult cartoons. It focuses more on drama rather than just comedy. - The8Bit
The best, so many great episodes. Never gets old.

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 love this show it's funny and it has a likable family that everyone can love it's creative and simple cartoon
This show is actually pretty clever. - KalloFox34V 7 Comments
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 :(
#3 is pushing it a bit, I could see top 10. Top 5 no way I can think of five other shows that are up there that should be. - htoutlaws2012
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
Do you remember Wiggle Jiggle?V 3 Comments
A lot of people aren't gonna like this show, but my sense of humor is built around shows like this - ListerBlister
This show is really underrated. Though it might not be the funniest one, it's still the most relatable one. The first season wasn't really good but it got better and better and season 4 was so incredibly deep, emotional and dark. The characters are incredibly complex and realistic and it's a shame that it's so low on this list
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.
This should be so much higher. Maybe not as funny as the other shows, but it is just so powerful and dark that it is nearly unmatched.
This show makes me realize aspects of my character that I've never seen beforeV 4 Comments
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 show is perfect and should at least be in the top 5! Sooo funny and awesome characters!V 6 Comments
This is one of the dumbest cartoons I've ever watched, but there is not one episode in this show where I haven't laughed my ass off so hard. This cartoon takes various Pop culture themes like movies, T.V. shows, celebrities, video games, and whatever else you could possibly think of and throw them into wacky and unpredictable scenarios that are simply a riot every time. - Mcgillacuddy

1. Robot chicken
This show is for Attention whores who like to do dumb
If we're talking about the original, then yes. However, if we're referring to the Adult Party Cartoon revival... NO! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
The original is one of the best shows on Nick that slip by the censors that yes had some kid stuff in there, but most people remember the show for its dark tone which I thought was pretty good for the 90's. No that adult cartoon needs to be burned in New Mexico that was just terrible. - htoutlaws2012
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
I really like this show I got into it from adult swim airings And now I really like it
Boondocks and black dynamite knock off
This Show Sucks - WWEWBMortalKombatFan
This show made family guy a good show.V 1 Comment
This show is below 4 other shows that classify more as kids shows gee the amount of irrelevant choices are astounding, nevertheless Metalocalypse personifies adult show can be with metal music put in, and your basically the rulers of the world. - htoutlaws2012
Love this show! Hope toki is okay
How the f***, I repeat, how THE F***, is this not higher up on the list?! How the F***?!
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!
Its still a kids show, but I find that parents like this show too because it has a ton of adult references kid at the time did not exactly understand. - htoutlaws2012
It seems like a kid's show but it has so many references
Choking chicken will probably get past kids heads
Fun Fact: The Chokey chicken was changed to the chewy chicken because the name was very inapprioate - YoshiAppleV 1 Comment
This is my 2nd favorite show it's hilarious unlike retarded seth macfarlane garbage like family guy - matthewwilliams2
The Boondocks was a great show. I loved how they mocked racial stereotyping. - Mcgillacuddy
Best black cartoon ever
I just watched this, the first episode, and I loved it. Don’t know if I will continue the series like I did with PPG and Death Note, but it’s a good show. It has a good blend of comedy, and speaks up about real issues, like racism and government corruption. The art is nice too. The characters are interesting. It’s way better than Family Guy (saw an episode of that and it’s not that funny, just stupid). I have a friend who loves this show and introduced me to it.
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
My favorite cartoon EVER!
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
To be honest, this should have had a T.V.-PG-L and should have been on Adult Swim - 445956V 7 Comments
Happy tree friends is the best damn thing your eyes will ever see
One of the most terribly written cartoons I've ever seen. - ListerBlister
It sucks. More gruesome version of Mr Pickles.
Number 21 really this is in my opinion the best adult swim show move over south park when will you get cancelled venture bros is the real deal
You know whats really weird the venture bros is at number 21 and a character on the show is named 21
Probably the best damn show on television.
Love this show
I think animaniacs is an amazing cartoon aimed at kids and Adults but its humour is mostly for Adults
One of the most intelligent adult cartoons.
Not only intelligent, but also underrated in the sense people overlook how great it is despite being its very short run on MTV. - htoutlaws2012
If I make an adult cartoon, I'm torn on whether to make it like this or more in the vein of South Park and Family Guy. Should I find a middle ground? - KalloFox34
Cow and chicken is an amazing Adult cartoon
Amazingly original, fast pace, and an exaggeration of old hanna barbara animation. Hilarious.
I'm kinda young to watch it (13 years old) but still a really good show that I love to watch with my brother - BlueDiamondFromNowhere
What a hidden jem this is. - ListerBlister
Super clever series about childhood, and a drunk coack
This cartoon has a lot of adult humor.
Worst Cartoon Ever - Thepassingzone
Of all of them Spawn is the most graphic with the most violence.
People are too nostalgic. The Flintstones is a children's cartoon, Cow and Chicken is a children's cartoon, Looney Tunes is a children's cartoon, Johnny Bravo is a children's cartoon, Animals of Farthing Wood is a children's cartoon, Tiny Toon Adventures is a children's cartoon, Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain is a children's cartoon and the Pinky and the Brain spin off. Ed Edd n Eddy is a children's cartoon, the list goes on stop being nostalgic.
Actually, this and Looney Tunes were made with adults/families in mind (this is confirmed by the creators) - KalloFox34
Much worse than South Park. - Not_A_Weeaboo
It's ONLY for adults
I disagree with the other comment. This show was made for kids; I loved it as a kid for it's serious, non patronising storyline and characters. Surprisingly, upon re-watching as an adult, it's still really really good for those exact same reasons. It's also beautifully animated with a fitting score and packs a powerful emotive punch, which is why many consider it 'not suitable for kids'. Main characters die in this series; infact, many of the animals you grow to love as characters in this show die, and sometimes not entirely peacefully either. This was something even back then I recognised set it apart from it's competition.
The animals of farthing wood deserves to be in this list because it was not for kids lots of animals died on the show
This is for adults.
Sorry but I had a picture book when I was little.
It's a KIDS show you politically correct morons. It was on Children's BBC. I used to have pop up books and children's magazines.
The good thing is that they don't mock religion
MAD is my favorite.
This is one of the best cartoons I have seen. I seriously wonder why it is rated #37. The characters are really great and the storyline can be very emotional. Season 6 may have many filler episodes but season 7 makes up for it. A great show with great characters.
I wonder why this cartoon is only at #37:a lot of people including me love it with passion! It's a great mix of humour,suspense and tears.i love marceline more than ever.
Best cartoon ever with the best characters ever! Marceline is sooo sweet
Adventure time's pilot is played in CBS reality, and moved to cartoon network. cartoon network is have many adult shows like ed edd n eddy or the amazing world of gumball, but that adult cartoon was adventure.V 2 Comments
All of theirs season are for kids and it’s Own by Cartoon Network
All of Them Apparently Season Season 5 was on Adult Swim so I Counts - WWEWBMortalKombatFan
One of the best adult cartoons with awesome characters!
How do you consider this an adult cartoon it cams on Saturday mornings in the 60s just cause it’s animated does not mean it’s for adults
It should be higher on this list
Tom and Jerry an adult carton lolololol confused it with Itchy and Scratchy?
