Best Animated Television Series
Fond towards the Simpsons, a very kind family even though they are arguing a lot some times. Some of the most beautiful relationships on television. Can be compare with Family Guy, American Dad, Futurama, and even King of the Hill. They know how to give smiles and that works the best with each lovable character. Also, and of course "I do see it on the Simpsons". Another fine feature is they can be thought of the animations more than while Futurama for instance are futuristic but the lines of language and interactions are not as remember-able as seen later finding for instance. It is no wonder though not as fine seen the Simpsons are the first place when it comes to television animation series as of yet and it is for a reason. Awesome job to the teams!
Best T.V. show ever! Well, for the first nine seasons...,but this is the only show that went on and on for nine seasons without a single glitch in it. From the tenth season everything went downhill... I recommend this T.V. show for everybody from the age of 5 (better 3 or 4) to "god only knows".
Simpsons is enjoyable. I think this show should be down a little lower but all in all great show. Not so much a family show all the time. It is on FOX so there is some adult content on it but the swearing is kept to a minimum. I started watching it two years ago and it is pretty enjoyable to watch
The Simpsons may be old, lost some of its original music, and has new writers, but I'm going to go with this one. It's been on TV over twenty years, has a plot, and is not a rip-off like Family Guy. I mean the jokes in Family Guy is good, but everything else sucks.
I have a lot to say about this show. There are multiple reasons I could say it's both amazing and awful. This show's first 4 seasons and 10th season were absolutely PHENOMENAL. They really showed off the best of the show. Then there is seasons 5, 8, 9B, 11 and 12, which are still good, but nowhere near as good as the first 4 seasons and the return to form that was the 10th season. And the 6th and 7th seasons, as well as season 9A, are bad. And when I say bad, I MEAN GODAWFUL FOR 6, BAD FOR 7, AND TERRIBLE FOR 9A. They did a number to all the characters in this show with seasons 5-9B except for Plankton, who unironically became a whole lot more likeable as a character. Thank GOD the show returned to its old form from seasons 10 and after, otherwise I wouldn't have this anywhere near my top 20 favorite TV shows.
This should be MUCCH higher. I could understand other age groups not having grown up with it, but it's got funnier plots than The Simpsons, more structure than Family Guy, less obnoxious crude humor than South Park and much funnier dialogue, and... Well, all in all, it's one of the most entertaining shows I've ever seen. EVERYONE should love it. I love reminiscing about my childhood- though I'm the first to admit recent ones are terrible- and every thing I mention in conversation about it makes me laugh and makes me laugh hard. I don't think I can think of a single bad joke or unfunny plot from when it was actually good. It's the perfect comedy show, and can be enjoyed by everyone, not just kids.
Spongebob Squarepants is a so awesome show that doesn't matters if you are a child or a teen or an adult you will always enjoy the show and this doesn't happens in Simpsons. The plots of its first seasons are creative and original and Simpsons's writers can't create a great plot without parody something. Obviously Spongebob's episodes got a bit worse throughout the years but it's still a great show.
Definitely the best animated T.V. series. Great humour, excellent plots and awesome characters. There are also some famous movie stars who took part in "Spongebob Squarepants", such as Johnny Depp, Robin Williams and Scarlett Johansson.
Funny as HELL and likeable characters. The writers know they aren't taking anything seriously, and the show acknowledges it, and that's why I love it so much. It's self aware and makes fun of it being self aware.
South Park may have been first to had cartoons that had characters from paper, which I thought was a co-incidence, but when I first watched this, it was cruel for me, which was at such a young age. But when I got a bit older, I knew more knowledge, which then processed the information that South Park gave, which I LOVED it. The Best Jokes I have ever heard, even ones maybe about, I don't know, Hitler. I consider this a 9/10 show to others (I really think it's a 10/10). But many people may think there are racist jokes and stuff like that, crude humor even, but that's only their opinion, my opinion is WAY better than theirs by, what, a mile? Probably.
This is by far one of the best things I have ever seen on television. You either laugh your ass off or you are strongly offended. My appreciation for this show is with no limits. Not only do you get humor with your main characters you get humor from the pop-culture it makes fun of. This show gives a message that has already been said in the show. "Either it's all okay, or none of it is."
This show is one of the best shows I ever watched, and probably the funniest. Sorry Family Guy, your second now. But here are my favorite stuff in it.
I just like Kyle. I can relate to him.
5, Butt out!
4, ManBearPig (No one takes me serial! )
3, Forgot the name, but it was when the girls made a private list of the boys from cutest to ugliest. And Kyle was voted for ugliest.
2, The episode where Sarah Jessica Parker got shot and the Kardashians got killed because of Butters.
1, Again, Forgot the name. But it was when all the kids in the town called the police on the adults and said they 'Molested' them until two adults get stuck in the town run by the kids. (And yes Kenny dies in it )
"I hate all of you, ecspecalliy you Kyle."~Cartman
Whoo boy was I sad to hear this show ended when it originally! There is so much going on in this show and I love it for that reason.
I don't think this is a very original show. It was a knock off of Camp Lakebottom with a similar plot but with different characters. Basically, Dipper and his sister Mabel go to a camp for summer and experience a ton of weird things there, the same as Mcgee and his sister Susie go to opposite camps by accident and Mcgee ends up being in a stranger camp with real monsters there. I think we can see the similarities here. I understand that Gravity Falls was going to the more mysterious version but since Camp Lakebottom is such an underrated show, Gravity Falls was a cheap knockoff that got all the credit for this "original" idea! I'm not saying that the director intended on ripping off another show, I'm just saying it's a possibility. But on the brighter side the characters are way more lovable in Gravity Falls then the cliche characters in Camp Lakebottom. It may be a rip off but the episodes and characters are original even though it's a similar plot. Out of Gravity Falls and Camp ...more
Oh, Gravity Falls, such a wonder... This show gives me chills every time I rewatch it... It's such a great wonderful trip to the one of the oddest places on Earth..."If you've ever taken a road trip through the Pacific Northwest, you've probably seen a bumper sticker for a place called Gravity Falls. It's not on any maps, and most people have never heard of it. Some people think it's a myth. But if you're curious, don't wait. Take a trip. Find it. It's out there somewhere in the woods, waiting."... Gravity Falls indeed is a miracle.
I love Family Guy, Spongebob, and many other cartoons, but Gravity Falls is something entirely new and original. I mean for a kid's show it can get really dark and has really funny jokes without cursing and highly innapropriate subjects (unlike Family Guy and South Park) It's also one of the few shows with continuity. Once you get further into the show, things from past episodes start to add up and make more sense. The amount of detail in the setting, the hidden easter eggs, and the "clues" are what makes this show so amazing. I forgot to mention how amazing the characters are! I don't think there is a single character I truly despise in the series, but in other cartoons, such as Family Guy, there are a lot of characters I do not like. At the least I believe that Gravity Falls should be higher than South Park.
The Looney Tunes are classics! I prefer the shorts to the new show, though. I loved how they were so unexpected. You never knew what the characters would do next! Plus, I love how they're appealing to everyone, not just kids. They're also timeless cartoons. Anyone of any generation would enjoy these cartoons.
I love Gravity Falls, but Looney Toons should be above that. I find Spongebob to be overrated as well.
This should be first, not this goddarned Simpsons that is one of the worst cartoons ever!
This is a show from the theatres just before it was on T.V..
This is truly one of the best animated T.V. series I have ever seen. This show has everything you could ask for, it manages to have comedy, action, adventure, and drama at the same time! There's always something you will like about it. The plot is amazing and the development of the characters is so amazing and real. I've learned a lot about life from this T.V. series and it has actually helped me to live my life to the fullest. I also love the romance in the show because it feels so real and so alive. The music is so amazing that every time I listen to it I feel the emotion the music transmits. I love the way the creators managed to create a whole universe, in which each nation has its own culture and traditions, in which there is a spiritual world, in which they have different animals from ours.
I really liked this show because its not dumb like others, they only have good jokes and not a real plot or purpose, but this show has everything plotted out from the beginning, it gives ...more
A:TLA scores big in each and every department. Brilliant animation, enthralling voice casts, well thought-out plots and characters, hypnotic music, realistic action depictions.. The list continues. Watching the series has been a truly enjoyable experience. You can easily relate with Zuko's moral dilemma, Katara's passion, Aang's determination, Sokka's resourcefulness, Iroh's wisdom. It's difficult to stay detached while watching Aang's adventures. Leaves one craving for more. But like all good things, ATLA had to end leaving lots of sweet memories. Definitely the best animated show I've seen till date, and trust me I've seen quite a few!
This show is so well thought out and perfectly complicated. The concept is simply genius, and the characters are beautifully deep, diverse and complex, and constantly growing. ATLA always leaves you asking questions about the past as well as what will happen next. The answers never disappoint and are always revealed in a thrilling and emotional way. This show creates an entirely new world but yet you somehow feel like you're a part of it while you watch. It leaves you wishing that you could be a part of their world too. The finales of each season were structured perfectly- each of them was an exciting and intense adventure with many moments that were sure to send shivers up your spine. The art of the show is gorgeous. ATLA is truly a masterpiece.
Hands down the best animated series I've had the privilege of experiencing. The beautiful art animation, the scored music (done by the talented Jeremy Zuckerman) was second to none, the little quirks of each character, and even the ideas expressed great morality in situations.
I remember thinking how animated shows nowadays seem to be going downhill, and it made me feel terrible about the young minds being exposed to such garbage. BUT knowing that such a show as Avatar: The Last Airbender exists, I believe there will be plenty of amazing shows to come! I hope to see more shows like this one.
I recently took my 6 year-old daughter out to watch her new pony movie, what I expected was your typical girly movie with things like glitter, rainbows, fairies, and myspace, but instead I found the animation pretty darn nice. The plot was a little dry, something about a mirror that transforms them or something; however, the characters were stunning to say the least. I am a little ashamed to admit this, but they felt so real that I actually found myself attracted to all of them, most notably the white one with the British accent. How the animators managed to draw her... no wait, all of the characters with such beauty was making my head spin. It didn't help that many shots were taken from their backside
I began to feel a little flustered and exited at the mere sight of them, which was wrong considering that I was watching the movie with my daughter, so I should not be having such perverse thoughts. But just when I thought that my heart was going to explode, the movie had to kill ...more
One of the cutest shows ever in my opinion! Everything about this show is adorable from the characters to the cheesy villain plots to the friendship and morals! I love this show and I am 15!
I have been following this show for as long as it has been on the air, and I am now to the point that I can confidently say that I will be marrying the main character: Twilight Sparkle. She's an absolute perfect woman, and I can think of no one better to make my bride. I have the capability to defend her from harm, and I always dress stylish enough with my favorite black and red fedora that I can accompany to the highest class restaurants. Of course, seeing how gorgeous she is, she will have no chance of not being allowed in, and now neither will I. Our wedding ceremony will be sometime next spring at the crack of dawn (matching her name), right as the season is being "wrapped up" so to say. It will be the most amazing ceremony anyone has ever seen, and our honeymoon is going to be even better! (I can't go into to much detail about that :) )
Some might say that marrying a fictional character is impossible, but to them I say: neigh! She's not a fictional character! I can see ...more
Honestly, if there's one show I'd recommend people to watch, it's MLP:FiM. Not because of the fact that it crosses gender or age boundaries or something like that. I like it because it's a genuinely good show. The plots, while at times simple, are engaging in a way that brings you well into a comfort zone. The characters are written in such a way that, even though on the outside they might seem bland, as the episodes go on they develop their own complex personalities and relationships.
It may not be something as adult as South park, but I personally think MLP:FiM is one of the best animated shoes otu there, and deserves a place at the tippity top of this chart.
Ok, I am a little biased due to my love of Batman, but this is truly an amazing show. It has an impossible great score, wondrous voice acting, and the most beautiful animation possible. Each episode is truly a work of art. What's more, it somehow manages to capture the characters, settings, and themes of Batman's world better than any movie ever has (don't get me wrong, The Dark Knight was great, but this does a better job of what I'm describing). I won't belittle any other show on this list, but in terms of a product that can be appreciated at any age and stands alone as an art form, Batman: The Animated Series is simply the best.
Deserves to sit at the top of this list. Inception (reality vs dream), Matrix (virtual reality), Terminator (artificial intelligence, cyborgs) and other such movie's essence can be found in a 90's show (darkest cartoon ever, its not a just kid show, its much more). That's not it, you get to watch all the best of batman's villains. Men who gave batman's & joker's voices for the first time are still doing stupendous job in batman arkham video game series.
I love this show... It is one of the best American cartoons I have seen. It's probably up there with some of the best anime I have seen. I don't usually watch American animation because I find it most of it too boring or childish but this show is mature, amazing, and well-written. Its sequel is just as good, too.
The show that turns kids into men. Fun with serious undertones. A must watch for all ages.
While the Simpsons kept getting dumber and dumber to try and be more like Family Guy, Matt Groening kept true to the original premise of the show. The series was so well liked by true fans that when Fox got rid of it for other 'worthless' animated shows, fans petitioned hard enough to bring the show back; done in the form of 3 movies and then picked back up by Comedy Central.
The series also had critical acclaim by being nominated for 17 Annie awards and 12 Emmy's. Not bad for a show that lasted 7 seasons.
Not many shows in general (let alone animated) can garner that kind of fan base or praise.
Brilliant and genius plots, hilarious and jokes, funny and lovable characters, and don't forget… the FUTURE! Just a fantastic show! A lot better than the sometimes boring Family Guy and far better than the unbearable Simpsons. My favorite characters are Bender, Zoidberg and Zapp. My favorite episodes are "Roswell That Ends Well", "Murder on the Planet Express" and "The Late Philip J. Fry"
If you don't like the show, then BITE MY FAT HUMAN ASS!
Great T.V. show but 11th place are you a sleep it's a smart funny hilarious T.V. show and eleven man this should be first like not first but higher but simpsons for first or spongebob dragon ball z family guy wow!
I still maintain the opinion that Dr. Zoidberg and Bender are the 2 most enjoyable animated characters ever created. That and this show is entertaining, creative, and always funny!
This show has always had a special place in my heart as I remember my father recording episodes of this show on Cartoon Network when I was little. After all these years, this is still my #1 animated T.V. show of all time.
Looney Tunes is a classic and it is just a tad more iconic, but unlike Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry is the one that still makes you laugh today, so they get my vote. Also, where's 2011-2014's The Looney Tunes Show?
If any replies, say +EadlumKirke.
This cartoon show makes me laugh a lot. It's one of best cartoon show in the world. I watched this cartoon show for the first time on black and white T.V. screen.
Greatest cartoon of all time! Many cartoon have come and gone but this will remain till the end of the world.
Good show. Jolly good show indeed.
I love it how the characters are in a real life situation but always wind up in trouble. If I had a job it would be at the park
Great for all ages.
It is so funny for little kids and there trying to get the young youth and it has a quality that no other show as just like adventure time.
#12? Are you high people? This show is great and makes you care about it's characters and their stories.
It's original and unique!
Truly the best animated series of all time.
Haha! I never get tired of Family Guy. Their way of delivering jokes through cutaway is repetitive, but the jokes themselves never lose their touch. Been my favourite animated show since I was very young.
What is this? Seven? It should be first, and South Park should be second. what?! SpongeBob at 2? Simpsons at 1? This is golden, it's hilarious. Oh forgot, this site is for little kiddies who like stupid SpongeBob? What the living hell?
I'm not fan of this show anymore but I used to love this show back in the old seasons. Better plots, hilarious jokes, MOST OF ALL the characters are awesome. Credit to Seth MacFarlane from Season 1 to Season 7
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...rea
One of my all time favourite shows- definitely deserves to be higher up on this chart. This show is the perfect blend of stupid humour and creepy/dark themes. It's just plain weird, yet it has so much charm. In a world so wacky, the characters are somehow easy to make connections with and relate to. Amongst the spontaneous nature of the episode structures, the underlying themes and backstories are fascinating and at times heartbreaking. Adventure Time did everything from twisting my emotions and producing me to tears, to throwing out crazy plot twists to blow my mind, to making me uncontrollably laugh at the most ridiculous things (sometimes simultaniously). And I don't think I've ever cried more over a finale than I did to the ending of what was this absolute masterpiece. I'll always miss the adventures!
Adventure time has more character development than most adult dramas. It also has tragic backstories. Okay, Simon and Marcy is the saddest T.V. episode of all time, the first time I cried at a T.V. show. Also, PB is not a black and white character like finn, she is more real, like most of the characters. They are grey. Also, it is very mature. Like when Martin, FInns dad did everything to get rid of his son, finn. That meant ripping finn's arm off, ON SCREEN!
Best cartoon of all time. Some people just look at the strange setting and weird slang in the show and say that it sucks, but every episode teaches you something and there are actually very deep story plots in the show.
It has awesome action and it is the best selling kid show ever at least that's what I think and they have a flipide too and I just want more and more of adventure tim and there flip side.
I grew up on DBZ! Sure some of the jokes are kinda cheesy but I absolutely love it. I can tell you the name of every character and everything that happened in all of the episodes until the Bu Saga. I don't know about all of you, but Bu annoyed me and I lost interest in watching after that. Anyways, DBZ is what inspired me to start writing my own adventures and when my novel finally gets published everyone that reads this post will know. Ps. I don't like Goku, Vegeta is the best character!
Dragon ball is the First animated series I had seen when I was the age of 3 and at that age it attracted me so much this kind of action can not be founded in any animated series and movies. Thanks to dragon ball z it gave me much pleasure I will keep watching it in my entire life.
I loved it's story. I love vegeta and trunks.
The most exciting part is in dragonball super.
When black goku hits the show. Waiting for more episodes. Best animated show I've ever seen. Vegeta and trunks are the best.Goku is also a powerful warrior but not good enough yo surpass vegeta.
This is a million times better than family guy and simpsons! DBZ is filled with life lessons and insperational messages. You can learn so much more from DBZ than any other show. You can even learn to fight!
I totally agree! From the animation itself to the unique and hilarious humour, Archer is always underrated and forgotten, not just by award shoes but in different aspects!
Once I watched this show I had a hard time finding another show to takes it's place.
Definitely one of those shows that's pretty unique. For well, a lot of things...
Such a great show
This proves Seth Macfarlane is a talented guy. This is like a much more polished Family Guy, with better, tasteful, humor, good characters, and much better stories
What's with all these Asian shows being in the top 10?
I believe American Dad is a lot better than people think. People don't realize Seth MacFarlane left the production crew when Fox renewed Family Guy, eventually causing an increase in quality.
Roger roger is the best character in history. Him and stan braking rocks in the hot sun. Stop stan I love that song. Or screw it I thought the law and the law won
BEYOND underrated. The invader zim of adult entertainment, and probably has the catchiest theme song I've ever heard.
Wow. Number 50? I would honestly rather watch this than any crap from Seth MacFarlane. Beavis and butthead is labeled and demonized as immature when it has quite genius and intellectual humor. I love a show where metal rules and pop sucks! I REALLY love season 4 also because they bash garbage shows like Jersey Shore. Love the originality and I love shows and movies from Mike Judge. I hate how overrated Family Guy is though. The first season is a HUGE ripoff of the Simpsons. Original? Not really. Clever puns? Not at all. Just random nonsense. Original humor? I wish. Almost every joke is ripped from a movie. You would be surprised how many times someone tells me "a joke from family guy" that turns out to be something I have seen in a movie. The cutscenes are ok, but do nothing for the plot. Believe it or not, I actually kind of like family guy, but not enough for a top ten list of any kind. Beavis and Butthead, South Park, and King of the Hill > Family Guy, American Dad, and ...more
This show is rad!
For me it has both the wacky humour of Roald Dahl and imagination of the "Pinky and the Brain". I love shows that have their own set of laws, hence every episode can be realistic according to the shows rules but unrealistic according to our own.
Absolute classic for when I was born (2006, it came out when I was 1). There is no doubt that this deserves a special place in my heart.
You two deserve better. Like around 15 to 20. Not that great, but watching this was a blast.
Personally, I think this should be on the top of dis list. It has great jokes that are not crappy, and has great characters. awesome!
Although still early in it's 11:30 time slot on Adult Swim, currently airing season two, I'd happily consider Rick and Morty as one of the best animated programs out there. It's ability to balance belly aching, quick witted humor and hit emotional beats resoundingly are a marvel to watch. The show adds an abundance of fresh ideas within it's irregular main characters (an alcoholic genius grandfather and not too bright, cowardly grandson) and satirical dark humor. Each episode acts like a cinema spectacular, involving immense sci-fi adventures and actions, using clinical science fiction tropes and adding their own unique spin to them, even adding layer upon layer of their own crazy, oddly fitting twists. The pacing of each act is spectacular, as it waste's no time or energy matters they don't need to delve upon. The jokes are almost always great to see come out right, and even most of the side characters are creative and fun to watch. 10/10
While it has a ton of crude humor, this is just sacrilege to my heart... 102? Hell this is the first list I've seen that didn't put Rick and Morty in their top 10!
This is the most entertaining animated series ever made.Period. (of course for adults)
It deserves to be on the top spot under the limelight which is unfairly denied to it.
Best show of all time. Will definitely dethrone Simpsons in a few years.
One of my favorite show behind Avatar.
Teen Titans is awesome.
Eh, tops go sure but eh
Please bring back a season 6! (But if you do, please don't ruin it and bring back the original creators. Don't ruin it like spongebob! ) Come on, people! This show ROCKS. It deserves to be way higher than this! I wish I was born in the mid 1900's so I could have watched it. Sadly, I was born in 2007 when the show was cancelled. Luckily, I'm able to watch it On Demand and on the CN app (Why I downloaded it in the first place! ) The show rocks! I know the whole theme song (Japanese AND english my heart! ) and LOVE them both. The characters were so amazing. Robin was my cartoon crush and badass leader, and all the other titans perfectly fit together as a team! But TTG gives a bad name to them! CANCEL IT! (by the way, please BUY THE NEW TTG MOVIE. TARA STRONG SAID THAT IF MORE PEOPLE BUY IT, THEY MAY BE ABLE TO BRING BACK TT WITH A SIXTH SEASON! )
One of the most epic shows ever. They should never have cancelled this amazing show. Invader Zim has a convention (InvaderCON) and STILL has a big fanbase after YEARS of being cancelled. This show is the best. Period.
How is this not on the top ten? Gir is adorable, plus he has a pig named Piggy. I actually didn't like this show until I was about 13, though. But anyways, Invader Zim is amazing. (just because of Gir)
I love invader zim and it's specal plot and cast of characters it's a good show and deserves to be higher on the list. Besides the fact the animation was great unlike some shows today yes I would love to see the show with new episodes.
Invader Zim is hilarious!
Why's this on here and why is so high up? It's gross and overrated!
Horrible overrated series.
Funnier than South Park my a**!
Ah, yes, dragon ball. I love this series, I can never get enough of it.
Pokemon is the greatest thing ever crested! I as well believe the best wishes is the best thing that could possibly have happened to Pokemon it is amazing! Can't wait for Pokemon X and y! Pokemon was, is and always will be the best thing that ever happened to kids, adolescents and for adults as well! Pokemon for ever!
Before black and white I whole watch like 20 episodes a day... Then when the trash began yuck iris gives me a bad tast in my mouth all I hear is " Ash your such a little kid " then having moments like she like him what really then that's when they came back with new ideas ash is not a complete idiot anymore and he finally gets a girl with a HUGE crush on him
I was going to put Family Guy but Pokemon holds so many fond memories of the 90's for me. It was one of the breathrough Japanese cartoons along with DragonBall Z. It was just such an exciting and magical concept.
Pokemon is one of those cartoons that inspires you and is highly enjoyable to watch. Never mind all of the amazing games that Pokemon creates. This so is amazing. So spend 20 minutes of your day and watch any episode of this great anime and save yourself from boredom before its too late...
P.s x and y will be epic.
