The Top Ten

Ren & Stimpy had one of the best plots ever, but it's content made it perfect for Adult Swim, it's full of adult content. - nelsonerico6

Adult Swim or Cartoon Network didn't exist at the time - 445956

Actually,it had a spin off show on adult swim - RyanMtheGamer

Sanjay & Craig has the perfect combination of art, plot and humor for an Adult Swim show, and it aired on Nickelodeon, That's horrible, the butt jokes and gross stuff. - nelsonerico6

Breadwinners Breadwinners is a 2014 animated comedy television series produced by Nickelodeon. It is about the adventures of SwaySway and Buhdeuce, two ducks who drive in a rocket van delivering bread to their customers.

Rocko had adult content and it wasn't anything appropriate for Nickelodeon, good thing John Kricfalusi got fired from this and Ren and Stimpy because of that. - nelsonerico6

Warning:why it should be on [as] is because it swears - RyanMtheGamer

I don't think the show is cancelled, because by samurai jack was cancelled by 2004 but it's come back in 2017 in Adult swim and I think this show come back in Adult swim but in year between 2018 - 2023 but I don't know when

I know the show is cancelled, but when season 3 comes, trust me the show will comes to adult swim but without Greenblatt.

Are you just saying that because of the time when foo peed in front of the 4th wall - RyanMtheGamer

They used butt jokes and peed. - nelsonerico6

Maybe, but it wasn't the main thing to rely on, it probably doesn't need to be on Adult Swim, it's either the equivalent to Chowder or some of the cleanest episodes of Invader Zim. - nelsonerico6

The worst CGI ever made, two kids running around drunk with underwear on their heads, not appropriate. - nelsonerico6

Not to mention references to adult movies like A Clockwork Orange, Silence of the Lambs, etc.

Robot and Monster

Good thing it was cancelled after a few episodes, it would've ran longer if it aired on Adult Swim because of that kind of humor. - nelsonerico6

Take this off the list, it's not disturbing enough to be on Adult Swim, some of the other shows on this list are, even Dark Harvest is tame compared to an episode of Rocko's Modern Life or Sanjay and Craig. - nelsonerico6

Not really, it didn't have that much adult humor and it wasn't violent enough to be on Adult Swim, it was fine where it was, it's more for either Nickelodeon or TeenNick, Sanjay & Craig, Breadwinners, Rocko's Modern Life and Ren and Stimpy were hands down more adultish and violent than Invader Zim, including Dark Harvest. - nelsonerico6
