I realize there are many more than what is in the poll. I did not want to include too many options (just some of the more popular ones).

Re: What is your favorite "mature" animated series?

For me, it was a toss-up between Futurama and Beavis & Butthead, and I chose Futurama. I also used to watch The Simpsons and King of the Hill, though I haven't watched a first-run Simpsons in about ten years. A lot of people that I worked with were big fans of Ren & Stimpy, but I just never "got" it, and found it more annoying than funny. Archer is one that I'm looking forward to binge-watching, I've only seen snippets so far, but it looks really good.

For me, it was a toss up between Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Robot Chicken, although I like all of the shows on the list (with the exception of King of the Hill and American Dad). I included Archer because I just recently started getting in to it. It is hilarious.

King of the Hill hands-down. Not only was it always a quality show but it's practically a documentary of my childhood

Though their latest season wasn't as strong as Vice, Archer has always been a good distraction.

Too many to choose from, but right now, this minute, I'd say Black Lagoon

"Johnny Quest" was always a fave!

Re: What is your favorite "mature" animated series?

I find the Simpsons more comforting than funny these days. Family guy has some very funny moments but equally has some very lazy, predictable stuff. I enjoy the occasional episode of Futurama but have never really warmed to it as much as my friends

Beavis and Butthead is the Rocky IV of.......oh you know

Beavis and Butthead is definitely a guilty pleasure.

Futurama is the best animated show of all time.

Oh, sorry... You stated "mature", not "twisted, sick and perverted beyond all belief".



Sincerely,

South Park

*If Ren and Stempy is labeled as mature, than so is South Park, which is tamer in comparison.
