List RulesVote up the funniest animated comedies that have ever aired on television.

You expect cartoons to be funny. The funniest animated television shows take that expectation a littler further. The best animated comedy TV shows ever prove that easily, offering everything from family sitcoms to satire that are designed to make you laugh. If you’ve been looking for the great animated comedies, this list of the top animated comedy series of all time will help you figure out what needs to go into your queue.

It's easy to assume that the funniest animated TV shows are adult cartoons, like Family Guy and South Park. As funny as they can be, cartoon comedy series for a wider age range, like Gravity Falls or Ed, Edd n Eddy, know how to bring the laughs as well. Many of the best animated comedy series are sitcoms - similarly to how some of the most popular television comedies of all time are also animated sitcoms. The Simpsons, Bob's Burgers, and King of the Hill all take the classic sitcom premise and animate it, using the unique abilities a cartoon has to amp up the comedy.
