Interesting points, but I have to say I enjoy Archer a lot, although I do see why someone would dislike it. I really like Family Guy as well, even with the 'needless' time fillers, to me it makes the whole thing more of a sketch show, which isn't always a bad thing. One I watched lately, and not commonly known is a series called Metalocalypse. Didn't like it at first, but after 2-3 episodes it sucked me in. If you're into metal music/culture and dark/toilet humour and absurdity, I'd recommend it.
Problem with both South Park and the Simpsons is the longevity actually. Both are getting really stale for years now, I even gave up watching Simpsons quite a while ago, it's just outright boring now. Funny about the show was that the Hungarian dub was actually much better than the original one, I wouldn't have liked Homer's character half as much if I watched in original from the beginning.
Anyway, I only asked because I'm about to start writing an animated show/series type of thing, and wanted to know what the kids like these days :D So let me know if there's anything else you guys like, and why. Lesser known shows are welcome as well.
When you say "kids" do you mean kids as in very young kids? As a dad for almost 11 months, I've become well versed in various "kid" cartoons and have picked which ones are good and which ones are legitimately pointless.
I hear you.
There are some very good "kid" cartoons...and there are some that are pure junk that we don't record for them.
We encourage kids cartoons that teach something.
Bubble Guppies, Octonauts, Team Umi Zoomi, Wild Kratts... my kids love those shows...and they teach kids stuff.
And don't think they don't retain that information...kids are sponges at that age. My kids know more about animals than most kids, just from watching Wild Kratts.
When my daughter was like three years old, I was reading her a book about shapes, and we got to one page and I asked her what shape was on that page and she said: "rhombus"
...and I was like..."uh...I guess that's right." (She was right.)
I didn't know what in the hell a rhombus was.
