I'm currently watching through King of the Hill, which is fantastic, and it got me thinking about the best adult cartoons of all time. I haven't watched a lot (read: most) of the shows on this list, but I tried to list as many popular shows as I could.

At it's peak; The Simpsons. Longevity; South Park

Id have a currently ranking, but I don’t really watch anything new. Occasionally catch the new South Park, but hasn’t been appointment TV for me in a few years.

I haven't watched in forever, but isn't the Simpson's still on? (Unless I'm misunderstanding and you're saying that south park has been better longer)

I freaking love King of the Hill. I bought the boxed set last year and started watching at season one.

I know I've missed out on South Park a lot, as I haven't watched it since the beginning. I probably should watch it, as I know Trey, Matt, and I have similar political views. 

Of the shows I've actually watched a large portion of, Rick & Morty, Bob's Burgers, and King of the Hill are likely my top 3 (in no particular order).

Out of that list I voted South Park in it's prime. I haven't seen a lot of the shows on there, but Robot chicken and Archer are hilarious. I want to rewatch King of the Hill now that I'm older, but not sure my wife will be into it (I think it's on Hulu).  

Big Mouth on Netflix is absurd and pretty funny too.

i know it's weird, but if i'm ranking my favorites, it's like this:

1. Rick and Morty

2. King of the Hill

4. Bob's Burgers

 

BUT. South Park is the GOAT - i never watched it in its heyday (didn't have cable) and overall it's not my favorite. but when they have a good episode, it was and is A-FUCKING-MAZING. None of the others are possible without The Simpsons, but on its own, that show just doesn't stack up with the best shows that followed it.

Your misunderstanding is correct. Well, mostly. I mean South Park has had a longer run of good. I don’t think it was as good as The Simpsons ever was, but it’s had amazing episodes virtually every seasons. Had a longer run of consistency as well.

South Park gets my vote. The Simpsons, Family Guy and King of the Hill are also good.

SP and Simpsons are the obvious choices but I was a Ren and Stimpy fan

Other for me

Looney Tunes

 

For the poll I’ll say Simpson’s, King of the Hill and beavis/butthead

There are a lot of good ones on there, but I've gotta go with ATHF.  Loved that show.

I wouldn’t classify Looney Tunes as adult. Some jokes are above child level, but for the most part those characters are all kid geared.

First 8-10 seasons of the Simpsons is the GOAT for me.  It's been bad for so long though, hard to judge. Futurama was also incredible, had some hard hitting eps too like the dog ep. KotH is fantastic, but haven't seen it in prob a decade. Aqua Teen Hunger Force first 3 seasons are also terrific. S4 got super weird.

KotH never appealed to me.  Same for Family guy, although Stewie and Brian crack me up.

Simpsons, maybe, but I'm not sure I'd call it "adult" humor.  Overall, probably the best in its heyday.  I just don't see it as targeted specifically to adults.

South Park has some truly great moments, and the movie was hilarious.  But doesn't feel as consistent to me as Futurama.  I see potential for Archer, but I've only watched it a few times.

The Simpsons is 100% an adult cartoon.
