The 10 Best Cartoons Targeted At Adults

Many people view that cartoons are meant for children. Some animated shows, however, can deal with adult themes and transcend the medium.

According to an online discussion, these are the best cartoons for adults.

Bojack Horseman

Bojack Horseman invented an anthropomorphic world that comes closest to capturing the authenticity of the human experience better than any other live-action show ever could.

Moral Orel

The three-season run of this claymation show followed Orel, a twelve-year-old boy who loved God and took the Bible verbatim. Viewers watched as Moral Orel found his way into trouble by following what he loved most, God.

The Regular Show

The Regular Show follows a seamless pattern, the first half of the ten-minute episodes follow a simple slice-of-life style of storytelling detailing Mordecai and Rigby’s early 20s, and halfway through the show, the plotline turns, well irregular. 


Don’t be fooled by Bluey. While the show is marketed toward younger children, Bluey’s viewing demographics run across the board. Why is that? Partly due to the realistic experiences of parenting and family life showcased in Bluey

Avatar the Last Airbender

What happens when two siblings uncover a 12-year-old boy and a flying bison trapped in an iceberg for 100 years? They all become best friends and explore the world together! Sort of. 

Gravity Falls

Twins Dipper and Mabel move in with their Great Uncle Stan in the show’s titular town. Once they arrive, they realize Gravity Falls isn’t what it seems.
