All of the below + One Punch Man!

One Punch Man is pretty amazing, my friend just showed it to me this weekend. A great deconstruction of the super hero concept.

Great documentary!

It's interesting how even what seems like the simplest thing has layers upon layers of understood complexities.  And those geniuses that understand how to make all of those layers work for them.

A lot of the cartoons I love have been mentioned, but I also enjoy a few other shows (can't remember which right now)

I'm obsessed with cartoons.

Spongebob Spongebob Spongebob
Codename Kids Next Door
Recess
Spongebob
Futurama
Invader Zim
Gravity Falls
Ren and Stimpy
Archer
Spongebob
Steven Universe
The old WB cartoons with Road Runner and Cayote and Bugs Bunny
Dexter's Lab
Powerpuff Girls

Did I mention Spongebob yet? Seriously. I can quote up to Season 5 at will.

Seems like you aren't a big Spongebob fan.  :p

Spongebob just got so much worse over the years. Sandy is basically non-existent, Spongebob is either whiny as hell or too stupid to function, Patrick is either too stupid to function or an *******, Mr. Krabs is just a greedy *******. They took all the subtleties of each character and made them so over-pronounced.

If I could find out where to get that whole show on dvd/blu ray I'd buy it in a heartbeat, keep it unopened for years to come then show it to my future kids.

I just don't get engaged by US-centered animated stuff anymore, but anime is a different matter (even considering my 4+ decades)

Yup, the Flanders Effect. It happens a lot in long-running characters, unfortunately.

I could talk about cartoons all day.

In general I'm super happy that we have finally gotten out of the era of cynical, faux-vintage tone and style in American cartoons. It took us 15 years to get out of the shadow of Ren and Stimpy and Powerpuff Girls (not that those aren't great shows, but they were imitated in tone and design ad naseum). I really enjoy the new school of character design and genuine emotion that started flourishing with Adventure Time and Regular Show a few years ago.

I'm almost done with season 2 of Rick and Morty now. I love the show, but the B-storylines with Morty's family don't work for me at all. I really, really want to love Bojack Horseman but I just don't find it that compelling. The characters are great (except for Todd), the gags are great, the themes are great, but it doesn't form a cohesive whole that I love as much as I feel like I should.

Obligatory faves:
Adventure Time
Regular Show
Bee and Puppycat
Stephen Universe
Gravity Falls
Phineas and Ferb
Venture Bros

Oldies but goodies:
Dr Katz, Professional Therapist
Space Ghost
Daria

How many episodes have you seen?  You've probably heard it already, but the tone shifts drastically mid-way through the first season.

Highly recommend F is For Family, especially if you're a fan of Bill Burr (as he voices the main character). The first season is on Netflix, and while it's only 6 episodes, it's definitely worth the watch.

Also obligatory Rick and Morty :)

The first three seasons of spongebob were amazing. I think they changed writers after that though and it quickly became awful

I'm done season 4 of Bob's Burgers and I'm reluctant to watch more... afraid that I'll have nothing left once I'm all caught up.

It has really been my favourite series in the longest time. :)

Another thing to note, I was on a vacation a few days ago and just chilled in the hotel and watched some older spongebob. I really love and miss those episodes where it's silly but still damn funny at the same time. Not so much mindless stupidity.

So with running out of Bob's Burgers episodes to watch, a few years until more Rick and Morty, what should I check out that would be similar and enjoyable? I like fun stuff, but nothing brain-dead stupid. In fact, Rick and Morty was especially awesome because of how sci-fi and smart it was haha.

I've already given my top recommendations.  Did you have a chance to check them out?  Based on feedback, I could perhaps offer some others more tailored to your interests.

Yeah, him leaving and the writer's strike really killed the show. Sucks so much because before that it really was a great show. Obviously I'm a little out of their target demo by now, but I still just can't watch any of the new stuff, it's just too stupid.

Huge fan of gravity falls, the season finale episodes were amazing, just for the imagery. I enjoy adventure time as well, though I fell off in later seasons as soon as they started actually explaining what was going on. Futurama is probably my all time favorite, and these days R&M took that spot since it's on the same vibe.

My childhood was filled with the same staple cartoons I see in here, it's awesome. Can't remember if I read that you guys mentioned Ren and Stimpy, or like cow and chicken, "ed, edd, and eddy". There were so many. Been getting tired of watching random things on youtube, I think I'm gonna start watching cartoons

I'm kind of surprised I found some cartoons I haven't heard about, but would be interested in watching here! Lately I've been looking into getting out the old rose-colored specs and checking out some of the old 80s-90s obscurities and  saturday am cartoons I use to watch with my bro growing up to see if any were actually good.

Some of the series I plan to check up on:

Pirates of Dark Water
Skeleton Warriors
MASK
Brave Starr
Attack of the Killer Tomatoes
Bionic Six
Exo Squad
Cadillacs and Dinosaurs
COPS
Mighty Max

I'm also surprised no one mentioned Star vs the Forces of Evil; character progression and interaction seems surprisingly deep for how goofy they can normally behave, and it seems to have a pretty solid story with decent world building. I'd rate it up there with Adventure Time and Steven Universe for recent good general cartoons.

Never got into the hipster cartoons of the past few years. By that I mean Regular Show, Adventure Time, Rick and Morty, etc. I'm only 35, but I still with what I grew up with, and then some later shows like Family Guy or American Dad. But mainly 90's Simpsons, King of The Hill, Beavis and Butthead.
