As a medium, cartoons can be a misunderstood as a form of entertainment reserved for children and hardcore fans of Family Guy. In actuality, there is a large population of adults who consume both old cartoons they watched as kids and new cartoons targeted toward adults. These shows can illustrate both youthful and grown-up themes while still serving as a great escape from the stressful world. At university, I actually met one of my best friends by identifying a sticker on her laptop that was a reference to a cartoon on Disney Channel. While the show isn't made for my age group, it has plenty of adult humor and general cuteness to make me happy. If you're just dipping your toe into the cartoon pool, I've collected a wide array of TV shows available on Netflix.

There was a day where cartoons were just for kids. However, thanks to the elimination of many Saturday morning cartoons and the rise of Netflix and other streaming platforms offering hour entertainment, things have changed. Adults have now become the target audience for many animators in modern-day television, with even shows geared towards kids having a lot to offer adults watching in the background, or in some cases, those without kids watching cartoons on their own time. With Adult Swim making adult cartoons specifically for grown-ups and even shows on Cartoon Network making sure to make their programming as adult-friendly as they can, here is a look at the 30 best cartoons that even adults can love. The Amazing World of Gumball is an animated series created for Cartoon Network, debuting in and airing over episodes and six seasons to date. The cartoon features the story of a year-old cat named Gumball Watterson and his family, including his smart sister Anais, working mother Nicole, lazy stay-at-home dad Richard and best friend, Darwin.
When popular cartoons like Looney Tunes first premiered, they were shown before films and were geared towards adult. Fast forward a few centuries and pretty much all cartoons on the air are targeted towards kids. This isn't a bad thing, since some modern cartoons like "Adventure Time," "Regular Show" and "Steven Universe" pushed the "for kids" envelope and found their way into the hearts of both adults and children. Amongst the many kid's cartoons, a few adult-oriented cartoons found their way to the surface.
Western cartoons are funny , and every year, the American animated movies hoisting Oscars over their heads are the ones consumed by kids and marketed for families and designed to make everyone laugh and feel good about themselves and their anthropomorphized feelings. TV shows? And with darker, heavier, more violent content, animation is starting to have its adult moment again this time without the empty inanity of Beavis and Butthead or South Park ; we'll still watch those classics, though. BoJack Horseman and Archer have proven that jaded comedies could still have a lot of heart.
