The 10 Best Animated Comedies of 2013

A genre of TV entertainment which has huge levels of potential but is often criminally overlooked by those that always group it in with Tom & Jerry-style programming, animated comedy is a genre that by its nature is able to morally and physically have a far greater range of potential storylines, suspension of disbelief, and content than anything produced in live-action.

top-animated-comedy-2013Unfortunately, this is missed by many that fail to see past the generalisation that something animated (including Pixar’s conveyor belt of strong movies) is ‘made for children’ (even if the content has a clear age recommendation next to it), but the format has come a long way in quality and popularity over the last two decades and generated plenty of viewers and interest, including a fair share from this website.

So to celebrate the upcoming onslaught of new content from at least half of the shows that will be featured below, we at WorldTVPC have compiled our ‘Top 10′ of the best shows in the genre, a subjective list that is based approximately on a 25:75 scale considering ‘legacy’ and ‘current quality’. We have taken care to try and include reasons why each entry is where it is on the ranking, with the ‘blurbs’ not made as essays, but not the single-paragraph affairs you might see on some other (more ‘popular’) websites either.

Other important things to note on this list include that only shows which have aired new episodes in 2013 are being considered, anything which cannot be seen as much beyond a ‘children’s cartoon’ are disqualified, and that only globally-known programmes that premiere on American networks (and have had coverage on this website) are put in. Again this specification is subjective (and means that cult series such as Adventure Time, The Regular Show and popular Japanese anime titles miss out), but it has cut the list down to about a perfect 10, give or take a few, a selection which we shall present in reverse order:
