Although one might think that TV shows are only meant for children, we would like to point out that there are some amazing animated TV shows for adults as well that are aired all over the world.


Bob’s Burgers

Bob is a father and husband that ownsa hamburger restaurant that has been shut down for various reasons about several thousand times. He is not the best boss, father or citizen because he has employed his kids in the restaurant – because he can’t afford regular employees.

It took some time for this show to stop with (basically only) vulgar jokes, but after a certain period of time, the entire crew harmonized and Bob’s culinary and parental successes turned into about 20 minutes of pure fun. Fox TV keeps on releasing new episodes, so we can hope for further animated entertainment in seasons to come!

Archer

The FX network is one of our favorite networks because they are not afraid to experiment. They let Louie CK do what he wants with his 30 minutes on air, so Louie became one of the most awkward products in the television world.

Their other experiment is in cooperation with another TV network, which happened this TV season, just a few weeks ago. The link for that is the main voice actor H. Jon Benjamin, who also did Fox’sBob’s Burgers and FX’s Archer, engaged in one episode, which means that Bob will mysteriously “unlock” martial arts skills.

Who is Archer? Archer is a spy, an ISIS employee who loves expensive suits, lacrosse, women and gambling. His boss is his hyper-sexual mother that gave him a code name after his pet dog – Duchess. His colleagues are his ex-girlfriend, a gay analyst, a fat gossip girl/pot fan and the dude that at the beginning of this show is with Archer’s ex. All (promising) stories have that “dude.” And this animated story is really promising.

Young Justice

horizontal-1010894_1920If you like comics and super heroes, DC has a treat for you. If you start watching Young Justice with your little brother or nephew, it is very possible that you, a responsible adult, will enjoy Young Justice more than that young watcher because it has a complex story that most youngsters can’t follow. Besides a complex story, there are added goodies: jokes, witty remarks and ALL OF THE DC CHARACTERS ARE HERE in this animated show.  There is Batman and Superman, Robin and Kid Flash, Red Tornado and Plastic Man.

Young Justice is a show about a team of heroes that fall into a category: “I am not a sidekick, but I am not a superhero yet either.” In the first episode, Superman’s teen clone is found in a secret complex. There are also some aliens, Lex Luthor, metal balls that turn into flying bikes, an obsessive fascination of 1990s sitcoms that one character has, and our favorite element – Kid Flash’sfrivolity and awkward childish moments of Captain Marvel, who is actually just a 10year old, although most of his colleagues don’t know it.

This excellent show had just two seasons, but we recommend it with all our heart – find it online and download it for pure viewing pleasure.

We are a bunch of adult cartoon fans. Some of us are parents who enjoy watching cartoons with their kids and debating with them about which cartoons are the best.
