south park, hands down.  I really like the simpsons as well (who doesnt?). I just think south park is sooo brilliant at times. the way they incorporate certain issues of today and give their unsalted opinions ( to which i agree most of the time).

Lots of good Choices and the adult swim stuff should be included in any poll like this. I watch all of it and they all have their moments.  Cool

BTW there were 2 series that were on the comedy channel besides South park one was Tripping the rift. that one was very funny. you might catch a rerun late nite sometime it was only on for 2 seasons.
 
The other is still on The name escapes me at this moment. It is about 6 different cartoons living in a house  Real world style and shows the dynamics of the group living.Very funny and very adult rated  Grin. As they say these are not the cartoons for the kiddies Cheesy

It was "Drawn Together".
 
I caught it a few times, funny but I think Adam Corollo, who I'm not a big fan of, and he was one of the voices, detracted from me liking the show that much...not to mention I didn't have time to watch much tv either  Roll Eyes Tongue

Has anyone heard that the Family Guy episode Blue Harvest is coming out on DVD soon (maybe it's out now) I think I might have to buy it. It's hysterical. It's the Starwars story told with the Family Guy characters.  Stewie is Darth Vader and Brian is Chewbaca Grin Grin Grin

I've seen clips of it, and definitely want to see the whole thing (and not dubbed, as nearly all cartoons from the US are in my country)!  
 
And also (Randal if you're reading this thread), there's a quick reference to Doctor Who! (the only part I've seen of the ep, yep its funny!)

Just my opinion, but that show is terrible. I've tried watching it three different times and it just doesn't do it for me.

The Flintstones.
 
I specially liked Barney, and the way in which he always seemed to get his comeuppance over Fred, who despite calling Barney his "ol pal ol buddy"  always treated him as an inferior. Also loved the imaginative use of prehistoric animals as the substitute for machines.

I'd probably have to go for The Simpsons. Either that or the cult UK kids TV show The Trap Door, which was crammed full with wonderfully witty lines and some mind-boggling animation  Grin

Voted South Park. I grew tired of the Simpsons for some reason.
Yet my personal favourite is Ren & Stimpy. At least those created by John K.
 
I simply can't laugh about American Dad/ Family Guy. Somehow I find those comedies very lame.

Indeed, early Ren&Stimpy with John K's sick mind,
 
but also Duckman. Which was pure genius.
 
Of those listed, Family Guy takes it hands down.

Family Guy easily.
 
Was a very big fan of The Simpsons before, but I've grown tired of it. No wonder after all those seasons...

The Simpsons is just plain boring and I've never seen Futurama or American Dad.
 
Both Family Guy and South Park are great. If I had to choose my favorite it would probably be FG. They might steal a lot of their jokes, but I can still laugh about it. And sometimes South Park's voices get on my nerves. Tongue

I used to love The Simpsons, but it's easily gotten rather dull. It can still be good, but nothing makes me laugh quite like Futurama and Family Guy!
I think Family Guy gets my vote, though I love both very dearly.
 
Not a fan of South Park.

It's either South Park or Family Guy. Both have scenes that have made me laugh so hard I almost wet my pants.

My vote goes for Family Guy.
I do like Simpsons, great show, especially the newer seasons, but Family Guy falls much, much more into my taste. Damnit I love that show, everything in it is just perfect.
