Only viewers who have been around for a while will appreciate the cultural allusions and themes in some of the best recent American animated series. 

While we enjoy numerous kid-friendly, family-friendly animated television series, cartoons are not just for kids.

1. The Simpsons

Even beyond its status as one of the greatest adult cartoons ever produced, “The Simpsons” is one of the greatest shows of all time. That is, for the first nine or 10 seasons. After then, things take a turn for the worst.

With its “Inception”-level layers of satire and sharp gags that are as relevant today as they were when the show premiered in 1992, the best scenes of this immensely influential series are as relevant today as they were when the show premiered in 1992.

2. Family Guy

“Where are those excellent old standards on which we utilize to rely?” asks Peter Griffin & his spouse Lois in the opening credits. “Anywhere except here,” could be the answer. To put it another way, Seth MacFarlane’s popular adult cartoon rips apart the sitcom formula in every possible way.

3. BoJack Horseman

One of our all-time favorite Netflix original series is BoJack Horseman, an animated black comedy. Humans & anthropomorphic animals coexist in this futuristic society.

As a self-loathing, post-fame Hollywood celebrity dealing with depression, alcoholism, and many other issues, BoJack. is the show’s central character.

4. Rick and Morty

An inventive and controversial take on fantasy adventure stories like the conception of “Back to the Future”. It begins with an insane scientist and his young sidekick bouncing around time and space but swiftly evolves into an acerbic and hilarious parody of the genre.

5. Futurama

Although “The Simpsons” may be Matt Groening’s most acclaimed television series, “Futurama” may be his best work.

After a four-season run-on Fox and a subsequent revival on Comedy Central, this light-hearted satire of traditional science-fiction themes such as robot revolutions, ecological calamities, and extra-terrestrial invasions is cantered in the 31st century.
