12 of the Best Adult Animated TV Series to Watch Right Now

You’re never too old for cartoons! But seriously, there’s plenty of adult animations out there that aren’t just enjoyed by a more mature audience; they’re geared towards it. We’ve rounded up the best adult animated TV series out there right now – and there’s some real gems to check out!

Even if you’re not super into adult animated shows you’ve probably already heard of the big ones: Rick and Morty, South Park, Bob’s Burgers, and The Simpsons, for example, are shows everyone knows.

These are adult animation suggestions that you might not have seen!

Love, Death & Robots

This Netflix made science fiction series is actually an anthology show, meaning each episode follows a different storyline. And it’s really good! Believe it or not, it was originally conceived as a reimagining of the movie Heavy Metal – but became this show instead.

One of my favorites, Archer is full of hilarious adult humor and quotable memes. Set in an alternative universe and influenced by the style and politics of the 60s and 70s, Archer is about a team of secret agents working at a private intelligence company.

Bojack Horseman

One of Netflix’s best original shows, Bojack Horseman is the dark, “too real” comedy that some of us need in our lives. If you find it slow at first don’t worry – it picks up in season 2!

The Venture Bros

One of the many Adult Swim shows that everyone should watch, The Venture Bros. is about a super scientist dad and his two adventuring sons. Basically a spoof of kids shows like Johnny Quest, the hilarious cast of characters (including rival “The Monarch”) make this show easily one of the best adult animations ever made.

Parasyte

Not to be confused with the 2019 Bong Joon-ho movie Parasite, Parasyte is an anime series about a high schooler that has an alien creature growing out of his hand. Creepy and apocalyptic, Parasyte has the main character and his invader banding together to survive.

Unlike typical teen or shonen anime, Parasyte is mature and deep.

The Way of the Househusband

Another anime series, The Way of the Househusband is about an ex-Yakuza boss who’s now retired and supporting his wife’s career. Each short episode is a mini story about the househusband’s day as he does various mundane chores – a stark (and funny) contrast to his intense personality and intimidating appearance.

King of the Hill

An older classic that’s totally worth re-watching if you only caught it as a kid or checking out if you haven’t seen it. King of the Hill is actually really funny!

F Is for Family

If you like Bill Burr you’re going to love F is for Family – it’s his show. Not only is he a creator and writer, but also stars as the main character in this adult animated comedy series.

Big Mouth

Big Mouth may follow middle schoolers but it’s definitely not a show for kids. At the start of the series the main character, who is just starting puberty, finds he has a “Hormone Monster” following him wherever he goes.

The series will have you remembering all the worst parts of growing up like first awkward romances, depression, shame, and so so much libido.

Over the Garden Wall

Although it’s technically a miniseries for all ages, Over the Garden Wall often comes up as one of the best adult animations of all time. Sweet and fantastical, it’s about two brothers trying to find their way home.

Castlevania

It’s hard to find a TV series based on a video game franchise that’s actually good – but Castlevania isn’t just good, it’s one of the best. Make sure you watch the 2017 series, not the new Castlevania: Nocturne (it’s nowhere near as good).

Aggretsuko

As a major Sanrio fan I couldn’t leave their latest (and funniest) character off the list! Aggretsuko stars Retsuko, a single 25-year old red panda. On the surface Restuko looks adorable, but she also has a temper… Which leads her to sing heavy metal at karaoke to blow off steam.

Think of it like Hello Kitty but with adult situations like, office drama, drinking, and swearing!
