The Best Cartoon Series

Animated television series often revolve around one central theme and feature a cast of animated characters who inhabit an established environment; often these series can be entertainingly comic.

Cartoons often evoke associations of childhood and humor; however, they can also tell emotionally complex tales with great depth and nuance that rival any prestige drama series.


Cartoons are two-dimensional illustrations used for humor, satire and caricature. They may take the form of drawings or animated movies and can often be found in newspapers and magazines as well as television broadcasts or online platforms.

Wcofun are animated programs that air for an extended period, typically weekly or daily. Individual episodes often range between 5-11 minutes in duration allowing TV stations to easily fill half hour programming slots with other cartoon series.

Cartoons and anime both depict caricatures; the latter, however, tends to elicit laughs more frequently while anime often features more lifelike features while exploring morals or deeper plotlines with longer attention spans in mind.


Few cartoon series can match The Simpsons when it comes to popularity and longevity. Beginning as shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show, The Simpsons has now been airing for over 30 years as one of the longest running animated sitcoms ever produced.

Adventure Time, which blends fantasy and comedy, has become an icon among American audiences due to introducing cringe comedy into mainstream viewing and changing how animation works.

Hanna-Barbera’s The Flintstones remains an American classic, popularizing bedrock culture across America while inspiring numerous spinoffs and parodies. Today, the series remains popular both on television and comic book shelves alike.


Cartoon characters seem to capture our hearts for various reasons, perhaps it’s their imagination-provoking worlds or childish antics; whatever it may be, cartoons often elicit empathy in viewers while offering an escape from everyday stresses and strains.

SpongeBob SquarePants, the yellow sea sponge who loves flipping Krabby Patties at Krusty Crab and participating in whimsical activities such as jellyfishing with his best friend Patrick Star, is one of the most adored animated characters. Another fan favorite is Squidward Tentacles who often gets in his way.

Notable TV characters include Aladdin’s beloved Genie, Bart Simpson from The Simpsons, and Buzz Lightyear from Pixar’s Toy Story franchise. Furthermore, many viewers can identify with Marvel’s mutant Wolverine.


Cartoon series generally follow well-established styles, yet there are some that break convention. “South Park” is known for its dark humor and daring style; modern shows such as “Bee and PuppyCat” also possess unique aesthetics.

Disney made remarkable strides during the mid-20th century in their cartooning efforts, using live actors for reference and filming scenes for animation purposes to produce ever brighter, more complex, and detailed cartoons that had an influence on video game Cuphead as well.

Adventure Time’s art is highly geometric, and its characters appear boneless, which allows for more fluid animation. This cartoon drawing style, also used by Betty Boop and sometimes known as the Noodle Drawing style, is now more prominently used than ever.


Cartoons are often associated with children and humor, but the best ones transcend this assumption. “South Park” has long been celebrated for its hilarious characters and violent comedy; yet recently it has also sent a powerful message about drug use. Additionally, Looney Tunes remains one of the longest running and best loved animated series with multiple TV incarnations throughout their existence.

Editorial cartoons can be more sophisticated. For instance, The New Yorker runs a series that uses one panel images to provide punchlines – more sophisticated versions of gag cartoons – ideal for periodic magazines that rely on subscribers remembering past installments of these series.

Gary Larson’s cartoons often exhibit his talent for absurdism. These cartoons often poke fun at traditional topics like family life or office politics by placing them into strange scenarios like living among cobras or an office full of wolves and sheep.
