Who says cartoons are only for children? The Simpsons are one of the longest running shows on television and it is a testament that adults can appreciate cartoons as much as kids too. With the proper script, animation style, and comedic flair, an animated TV show can easily please a much older crowd. American Dad, The Family Guy, Futurama, and many more shows have also become successful in capturing the attention of adults. With that being said, we listed some of the best animated television shows that you can watch on Netflix right now. Let your kids sleep first before watching these cartoons because they are for adult eyes and ears only.

Bojack Horseman

This highly acclaimed series is still considered one of the best. Now on its fifth season, Bojack Horseman is still available on Netflix and has no signs of slowing down. The show still revolves on the story of the 90s sitcom star Bojack, a horse, that aims to get back to fame. The show features a world where human and anthropomorphic animals live side by side in harmony and live as if they are all the same beings.


The creators of The Simpsons and Futurama are at it again. Disenchantment is not your ordinary fantasy animation. It follows the story of Bena, a medieval princess who does not care for the rules. She does not want to be one of those typical princesses that would marry a prince and happily ever after. She just does what she pleases including living a carefree life and drinking lots of alcohol. Although the show having mixed reviews, you still get what you expect from its creators.


Aggretsuko is a show like Bojack Horseman, it features a world full of anthropomorphic animals. The star of the show is a red panda that works in an accounting firm in Japan. Feeling restrained all day, she unleashes her inner beast at night when she sings death metal karaoke. The show is based on a Sanrio character with the same name.

Paradise PD

This animated comedy show focuses on the mishaps and shortcomings of a police precinct. The police department in the small town where it is located does not really do a great job of protecting its citizens.  Paradise PD features a silly and pop culture-ish type of humor.

Big Mouth

Big mouth features pre-teens going through puberty, but this does not make it appropriate for audiences in those ages. It is a show that adults can relate to because it is sort of a retelling of how adolescence and hormones and all that stuff felt like. It is pretty vulgar so better keep your kids away from this show.
