With so many great TV series currently airing, we’re ranking the best animated TV shows since 2015. Our list of the highest rated animated shows of the past three years is ranked by viewers from everywhere, so make sure you vote up the best new animated series on television. What is the best new animated TV show? 

Featuring new kids shows, animated superhero shows, adult cartoons, and more, the best recent animated TV shows include Guardians of the Galaxy, Harvey Beaks, Apollo Gauntlet, and Ben 10. While Cartoon Network's We Bare Bears is a great animated show for the whole family, while Netflix's original series F Is for Family should probably be watched without the kids.
