List RulesVote up your favorite ever animated shows geared for a grown-up audience.

This is a list of the best adult cartoons that ever aired, ranked by your votes. In the 1990s, cartoons with R-rated humor became popular all over TV (what with Homer Simpson and Peter Griffin and all) and fortunately, that trend continues to this day. This list contains funny adult cartoons and action-packed animations. You can even vote on this list of the best adult cartoons to make sure your favorite adult cartoon ends up in the No. 1 spot. 

Which cartoons appear on this list of the top adult animated shows? Of course, Family Guy made our list. Family Guy is one of the funniest adult cartoons of all time. It was created by Seth MacFarlane in 1999. The series led to another cartoon for adults, The Cleveland Show, which is also on this list of cartoons with r rated humor.

Other good adult cartoon shows like Tom Goes to Mayor and Aqua Teen Hunger Force also appear on this list of cartoon shows with adult humor. Netflix adult cartoons Tuca & Bertie and Big Mouth are some of the newest adult cartoons to gain a cult following (and for good reason). They features the voices of several hilarious comedians including Tiffany Haddish, Ali Wong, Nick Kroll, and John Mulaney.

Where do your favorite adult cartoon shows fall on this list? Be sure to vote up whatever you think are the best adult 'toons below!
