List RulesVote up your favorite animated families. Note that we're only including recurring immediate family members (and pets) - no estranged uncles, random cousins, second cousins once removed, etc.

Get ready to feel the love as we rank the greatest cartoon families in TV history! These memorable families can love, fight, and even deceive one another, but at the end of the day, you know they all love and support each other.

Whether it’s the Griffins from Family Guy, the Belchers, the Simpsons, or even the Morgendorffers from Daria, these families consist of very different archetypes, but they're all dynamic, funny, and extremely memorable characters. These characters may be great when they’re on their own or paired up in various combinations in storylines, but that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and they tend to shine the best as one cohesive unit.

From talking dogs and pet dinosaurs to genius babies and awkward grandparents, vote up your all-time favorite cartoon families. And if your favorite animated family is missing, go ahead and add them to the list!
