With so many great TV series currently airing, we’re ranking the best animated TV shows since 2017. 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 Disenchantment, Castlevania, Love, Death, and Robots, and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. While Cartoon Network's Infinity Train is a great animated show for the whole family, while DC Universe's original series Harley Quinn should probably be watched without the kids.

Vote up the best new animated TV shows and feel free to add any new animated series missing from the list.
