    The Venture Brothers for me. It's got everything I could want in an animated show. Humor, awesome villains, comic book references, nods to various cartoons, movie acknowledgements and gratuitous violence.

    BATMAN.




    Says it all. But if it's not considered adult enough, then Invasion America comes darn close. And if anyone agrees with me on Batman the Animated Series, I encourage you to begin your post in the exact same way as I did! :o

    Simpsons for me. It manages to be an "adult" show while remaining smart. And it manages to keep some values to it. The Simpsons are a working nuclear family (no pun intended): father works and actually loves his family; the wife is smart and not a ***** and takes care of the family; the son, while a hellchild is in the end a nice kid and usually owns up and helps fix his really BAD shenanagins; the daughter is intelligent; and the baby doesn't have anything wrong with her.

    And all the supporting cast are great. And in recent years, I've come to appreciate Ned Flanders alot more. He's often still cast as the over the top Christian who could be made fun of, but he's also written as intelligent and a good person who, despite everything Homer puts him thought, still manages to keep the basic rule of his religion, by loving his neighbor. Had Flanders been written by Mcfarlane, he'd probably be a loudmouthed, drooling, self-rightous moron. I have no problem with atheists, but he's the kind that I hate, who likes to go out of his way to offend and shove it in peoples faces, which makes him just as bad as the extreme conservative Christians who do the same thing.

    I'd say anything by Seth McFarlane is at the bottom of my list and least liked. Used to watch Family guy in the first couple of seasons and it was decent. Then it just turned in to pure, sophomoric drivel. There's not a single likeable character. The father's a moron, but an unlikeable dolt with no redeeming qualities, unlike Homer. The mother's written as a nympho. The kid's are throwaway jokes, depending on if you need a dumb character or an unpopular character. The baby has become a gay joke. And the dog is a pompous, annoying douche... truely a Mary Sue of Seth M.

    After Simpsons, in order of preference, I also likeKing of the Hill, Futurama, Beavis and Butthead, Venture Brothers, Metalocalypse, Ren and Stimpy (the original on Nick), and Southpark.

    South Park is by far my favorite. A couple of the seasons in the middle didn't do much for me, but overall I've enjoyed. There is usually just one clunker a season for me and they keep it fresh with current topics and doing only 14 episodes a season.

    I was into the Simpson for about its first 10 seasons. Then, I grew tired of it and can't really bring myself to watch an episode anymore.

    Although I haven't minded their Star Wars spoof specials, Family Guy is nothing more than a bunch of random jokes to me. I've never really cared much for it.

    Even though South Park has probably been the most consistent in terms of quality, I gave it to Ren & Stimpy. While it went downhill after creator John Kricfalusi was fired by Nickelodeon(and got even worse when he came back for Spike TV's run), the early stuff had an insane brilliance to it.

    While I still occasionally watch McFarlane's toons and find the shows laugh out loud funny at times(and other times cringe inducingly bad), I agree with you about the characters & McFarlane being unlikable. Even South Park shows some heart now & again while Family Guy, for instance, is just full of vile characters doing vile things. I also find extreme liberals like McFarlane(I'm left leaning on a few issues as well but I'd never call myself a Liberal or a Conservative) as unlikable & self righteous as the religious right.

    Beavis and Butt-Head for me. Ren and Stimpy is up there as well. Simpsons ruined itself to me. South Park is hit or miss to me, mostly miss. I hate Futurama, Family Guy, and all the other stuff.

    Took the words right out man, Venture Bros is the best show for all those reasons and more. Voice acting is just top notch, character designs are great, the animation quality has gotten better with each season and the characters grow and develop as the show progresses.

    Agreed. While South Park can be really blue and have 12 year old humor, every episode is tied together by a pretty important message that it conveys extremely well. Family Guy's characters never learn anything at the end. It's 30 minutes of moving colors that pertain to sex and poop, and occasionally have some funny cutaway reference. And yeah, I'm on the fence, leaning toward the left, and I don't care for extremists of either side.

    With the exception of Family Guy (which imo hasn't been good since season 4) I enjoy all of these shows, however, Futurama wins by a landslide. It's hilarious and I can get emotionally invested in the characters. I can't really say that about most of the shows on the list.

    Agreed. I'm surprised at how well written Futurama is sometimes. It's definite favorite as well.

    Also forgot Robot Chicken. Sometimes there's a pretty eye-rollingly immature joke in there (usually the sex stuff like Teela or Jem as nymphos or crackwhores), but there's also alot of really hilarious stuff as well.

    Also loved Cartoon Planet and Space Ghost Coast to Coast. But after that, alot of the "Old cartoon-new stories" weren't that good. Birdman was OK in the beginning and I never liked Sealab. I've found that a good rule of thumb is that alot of Adult Swim's original content is too immature or randomly dumb for me. Same with Aqua Teen Hunger Force. I gave it a chance.... I even watched it high and didn't think it was funny (Though I do kinda like that mad scientist guy that seem to pop up on it - "Behold! CORN!")

    While I have seen bits & pieces of Space Ghost, Robot Chicken, Boondocks, and Aquateen Hunger Force, the only reason I didn't mention any Cartoon Network/Adult Swim shows is due to the fact that I don't watch them. While I may eventually give Venture Brothers a chance since friends of mine have said how great it is, most of the other stuff seem like toons made for teens, stoners, or those who like "shocking" toons just so they can say how "edgy" they are.

    Gotta agree with Predabot on this one.
    I find I appreciate the Animated Series far more as an adult than I did as a kid.

    I also love Futurama and The Simpsons.
