Aqua Teen Hunger Force

Aqua Teen Hunger Force

Aqua Teen Hunger Force (a.k.a. ATHF) is an animated comedy shown on Cartoon Network as part of (and the most popular show on) Adult Swim. The series features three fast food items, the Aqua Teens, whose purpose is to solve crimes. As the series progressed, the crime-solving was abandoned, though many episodes still involve villains. The title of the show is a misnomer: The characters have no major affiliation with water (though many episodes involve their neighbor's pool), they aren't teenagers (their ages are never really established, but they do pay bills and live on their own), and they are rarely shown as any kind of a force. "Hunger" seems to be the only word that has a bearing on the characters' lives. There is also little emphasis on continuity between episodes: virtually all of the recurring cast members have died at least once. The focus is instead on character interaction and a pervasive form of brutal, ironic humor.

Family Guy

Family Guy

Sick, twisted, politcially incorrect, and freakin' sweet, the animated series features the adventures of the Griffin family. Peter and Lois have three kids -- the youngest is a brilliant, sadistic baby bent on killing his mother and destroying the world. Their talking dog Brian keeps baby Stewie in check while sipping martinis and sorting through his own life issues.

Futurama

Futurama

Futurama is absolute brilliance. A sci-fi cartoon from Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons, it's not only hilarious but at it's greatest moments, truly touching and even tear-jerking.
