Let's settle this properly. Best animated comedy?
14. Oct 2007 at 11:24
 
Since the poll between Family Guy and American Dad turned to a brawl between series, most of which weren't even in the original poll, I decided to create a new one with all of those series to settle this matter. Probably someone's favourite was still left out but these five arose in the original topic.

While The Simpsons get cult classic status, I will always enjoy Invader Zim.
P.S.
I know I.Z. is a now defunct Nickolodeon show..........

Futurama just barely edges out South Park, for me. Although now that SP has turned to crap, and with Futurama coming back soon...Futurama is the reigning king.

Futurama by far. South Park is very funny and clever (at times) but Futurama has heart and characters I care about.

My poll was fine, there was no brawl  Sad lol, anyway it's a difficult choice between South Park and Family Guy, but I think Family Guy gets my vote! Wink

I voted for The Simpsons as a series, but the animated show that has me rolling on the floor the most is SGC2C.

Aw shucks. I forgot all the AdultSwim series. Which is really shameful since I watch a lot of them. Space Ghost: Coast to Coast, Sealab 2021, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Robot Chicken, etc. etc. Well, the Other-option is losing anyway so doesn't probably matter.

I've only ever seen The Simpsons, so didn't vote.  I will say, though, that I thought the South Park intro to Tom Sawyer on the currect Rush tour was great.

I hardly ever watch those shows but however, The Simpsons has lasted so long and it still stands alone amongst the rest.  It is a forever classic and you can get your fill of laughter therapy to recover from a bad day.

Altough I voted for Family Guy at this time, I don't know if it will beat South Park in the long run.

South Park gets first place for sheer, Oh your god I can't believe they just did that, effect.                                               Family Guy is in a 2nd place three way with American Dad and Simpson.                                                                           Futurama is a very close 3rd.                                                  Drawn Together wasn't on your list but it's really funny in a Ren and Stimpy sort of way.

I voted Simpsons for the heights it reached in its prime and its iconic status.  It clearly is not longer at its peak but that is life.
 
After that I would go Futurama and then South Park.
 
Also really enjoy Family Guy.
 
I can't believe American Dad got a vote against this competition.  I would rate that one way after the above and several cartoon network numbers like Sealab 2021.

'Monkey Dust' is by far the best animated comedy. Space hoppers, suicidal fathers, and West Brom-supporting terrorists. Essential viewing for anyone who wants to learn more about Britain.

Futurama!
 
Futurama has consistently been the best out of the shows listed...and the new DVD Bender's Big Score is great! Never fails that good tv gets canceled but GOOD NEWS EVERYONE! that we get more Futurama for at least the next couple years via DVD and I heard Comedy Central will air the new movies split up into episodes.
 
Though I haven't had a chance to see a lot of Adult Swim in recent years...I love Harvey Birdman AaL, but never get to see frequently enough....and well there are some older shows like Animaniacs, Freakazoid, The Critic...

It depends on the day I am having.  Today, I voted for South Park although The Simpsons is such a close second.

I voted for something else....Bro town !!!
 
NZ's answer to South Park. Very very funny if you know anything about NZ/ Polynesian culture. Remember nearly wetting myself watching it on an Air NZ flight from Auckland to SF a couple of years ago.
