Question Non-Anime (or the lack of it)

So... anyone seen any good non-anime animation lately? You know, like, animated shows from America and Europe... that don't abysmally suck.












...anyone?

I used to like Family Guy, I still like seasons 1-6. But now its just slanted, and turned into a political cartoon. But was it a great cartoon? Hardly, it was just really funny (sometimes).

Not a lot of great shows currently though. I think Family Guy is alright, ATHF is good too.

One of my favourites was Dexter's Lab. I used to love that show. Shame they don't show it at all over here anymore, would love to see repeats. :/

Yes, not Family Guy. The key word is shows that don't suck. And preferably, shows that haven't been off the air, or that haven't already been on Adult Swim for the past few years.

X-Men Evolution is probably my favorite and I recommend it to anyone who likes superhero shows and especially X-Men.

Dexters Lab, Johnny Bravo (especially Third Dork from the Sun), IR Weasel, Cow and Chicken... all the old Cartoon Network stuff before they went down the crapper. Oh and the Venture Brothers. I loved that one.

Futurama; they have some newish movies.

Some more action packed cartoons that are definitely worth watching are Avatar The Last Airbender, Ben 10 (the original, Alien Force turned out to be a major letdown) and, of course, Megas XLR.

Lately? None. But I've seen tons of awesome series in the past, one of them being Batman: TAS that good man Moeller mentioned.

Family Guy sucks so much, I don't know how people like it. :/

Family guy can be good, but it's inconsistent, some stuff is funny as hell, and then some stuff is beyond rubbish. The Star Wars special was amazing though.

Yeah, Family Guy isn't good. It has some great jokes, but they're only worth watching on YouTube or something. Watching a whole episode, that's something I wouldn't be able to do.

I don't watch animation shows, really. Except for Avatar:The Last Airbender, which was awesome.

How did I miss posting this? Venture Brothers has been my cure for lack of Joe Murray material (at least any good ones). Do anyone else love Dr. Girlfriend?
