They really speak to your grown-up inner child
Who here misses racing home from school to watch SpongeBob, Danny Phantom, Kim Possible, and Totally Spies?
Call it nostalgia, but sometimes there’s nothing like cartoons to put a smile on our faces. Why keep looking back, though? You don’t have to be a kid to enjoy watching cartoons – in fact, these shows we’ve picked were created specifically for adults like us. No, we’re not going for the R-rated and crude thrills here. Using satire, dark humour, and yes, a couple of F-bombs thrown around, these animated shows take on complex topics such as politics, technology, depression, and death. Not so different from our sci-fi and crime dramas, but with cute or quirky animation art.

8. Bob’s Burgers
If you haven’t seen Bob’s Burgers yet, you have seriously been missing out. It’s a personal favourite because of the rare wholesome look into an imperfect family. Besides running a burger restaurant, the Belcher family (Bob, Linda, Tina, Gene, and Louise) get into lots of hilarious shenanigans that often create trouble, but at the end of the day, they support and love one another. Oh, and Tina is always such a meme, we love her.
