Best Animated TV Comedy Of All Time – Your Vote

College Humor’s Results

The top spot for the best TV Comedy of all time has been discussed, battled and raged about over many years.

College Humor decided to end all the talk and put it to a vote. Fans of the site had a chance vote for The Best TV Comedy Of All Time. The results didn’t throw up many shocks, all your favourites are included, minus a few english classics.

What will not come as much as a surprise is that the top 2 best TV comedies of all time are 2 animations, yep no actors needed. Legendary shows The Simpsons and South Park Hit the number 1 and 2 spot respectively.

The People’s Top 5

5. Family Guy

The King of the Cutaway, Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy is so funny that it played a joke on Fox by being canceled and making DVD money after the fact. Some people don’t like the non sequitur style of the famous Family Guy gags, but those people just remind me of the time I was locked in a monkey cage in Venezuela with Gary Busey.

4. The Office

There’s nothing like relaxing after a long day at the office by watching people in an office, and there’s nothing more American than taking something from Britain and making it our own. The U.S. version of the The Office pays homage to the classic original, but ultimately finds its own voice, which is definitely a feat worthy of a seat so high on our list.

3. Futurama

Getting accidentally frozen cryogenic-style and waking up in a future where Katey Segal is a one eyed babe is every slacker’s fantasy, and Futurama is the vehicle that lets us live that dream! I mean, who doesn’t want to be best friends with a hard-drinking robot or have pets that poop dark matter? Yea the future sure does look great. Unless of course you live in New York… Enjoy your mutanthood…

2. South Park

Who knew that the crappy cardboard paper you used to play with in preschool could make you millions? Like The Simpsons before it, South Park showed us what animated humor could be if it were on cable. Barf humor and anal probes propelled the series (and its network) to super star status. We now live in a world where we can say “shit” on basic cable. South Park did that.

1. The Simpsons

The Simpsons has come a long way from its roots as a short on The Tracy Ullman Show, as it gears up to enter its 23rd season. This house of Homer is both an animation and comedy institution. In fact, The Simpsons was a major influence for most of the shows on this list. I mean, c’mon. How many shows have had a catchphrase included in the freaking dictionary?

Vote For Your Favourite

It’s great to see the top 5 dominated by 4 animated comedies. So the questions we pose to you is what is your favourite Animated Comedy?

You have a choice of Family Guy, Futurama, South Park and The Simpsons.

EW argues the case.

College Humor’s results put The Simpsons as number one. Over at Entertainment Weekly things got a bit heated. Even StayToonedIn writer Peter Bakare has his say

Out of the 4, It would have to be South Park! The Simpsons have over 20 seasons and to keep up the level is impressive but if you had to be honest with yourself when was the last time The Simpsons actually made you laugh continuously throughout the episode?

Comedy Central Renews South Park Through 2013

South Park Creators Matt stone and Trey Parker have signed a new deal with Comedy Central to produce South Park Episodes until 2013.

Creating an episode in a Week

With just a week to create each episode Matt Stone and Trey Parker will be under extreme pressure to complete each episode. Where as other animated comedies such as Family Guy and The Simpsons have many weeks if not months to prep an episode SP don’t have that luxury

“Every show, we’re down to the wire,” says Parker, running his hand through his hair in exasperation. “I don’t know how we’re going to do it. It’s a nightmare.”

$75 Million Contract

The new deal for Matt Stone and Trey Parker is thought to be worth more than their previous agreement with Comedy Central, which was worth a staggering $75million.

The Rumors

Following the episode “You’re Getting Old”, the last episode in Season 15 before the mid-season break, rumors started to circulate that SP was about to be cancelled.

Now you’ve had the good news you’ll no doubt be itching for October 5th to arrive, but until then here’s one of StayToonedin.com favourite clips from south park, I’m not your friend, buddy
