Animated Shows To Check Out! (Gallery)


play/pause
1) Confinement (6 episodes so far, 2018-) watch on Youtube (Lord Bung)



D-Class personnel Connor is used constantly by the SCP Foundation for tests since he has the ability to immediately respawn should he die.



This dark comedy show is created entirely by Lord Bung on youtube, free of charge, with no ads. So far it's been really imaginative and incorporates tons of different SCPs as cameos or main focuses. It's surprisingly very well put together and easy to imagine it airing on say Adult Swim or something if the SCP brand could make money. A unique artstyle followed by a creative storyline putting together items and people created by the public is pretty damn awesome!

2) The Dragon Prince (2 seasons, 2018-) Watch on Netflix



Young Princes Callum and Ezran must take the egg of the dragon prince back to his home before war breaks out between the human races and the magical races.



This show is really great. Created by one of the writers for "Avatar: The Last Airbender" too and even having Sokka voice Callum, the dancing dude up there. It's essentially a spiritual successer in a new world with new characters, new rules, and new animation. It can be a bit janky at times with a choppy framerate but you get used to it quickly. It's a great adventure and the characterization is spot on. I'm very excited for season 3.

3) Ugly Americans (2 seasons, 2010-2012) Watch online



Mark Lilly has to balance life with his zombie roommate, succubus girlfriend, and work integrating non-humans into Manhattan life while staying politically correct and upbeat.



Man I miss this show. Pretty messed up, but a creative ride from start to finish while integrating political and societal satire as a main focus. Plus Randall is awesome. Fightme.

4) Hazbin Hotel (TBR 2019) Watch on Youtube (Vivziepop)



In order to avoid a mass culling, Charlie, the Princess of Hell, opts to start a rehabilitation program for sinners and demons in her hotel.



Alright I'm cheating a bit. This hasn't been released yet but the hype behind it is astounding. But it's an adult-orientated cartoon, drawn entirely by hand with some astounding voice acting, this particular show already set a name for itself with the unique artstyle. The character designs are likely to be some of the most unique and well-designed in any modern day cartoon and are worth a check out. See a bunch in a clip of the original music number for the show here

5) Gary and His Demons (1 season, 2018-) Watch on VRV



Gary, an aging demon hunter, tries to force himself into retirement while dealing with one hell of a midlife crisis.



This show is my surprise hit. The story is interesting and the characters work off in a vague Rick and Morty-esque fashion that just feels natural and funny. It helps that alot of the show is improvised in the recording booth! This forces the animation to be slightly choppy, not as smooth as some of the other high-budget shows, but it adds to the charm. Also Bloody Mary is the best and I love her.

6) Silverwing (1 season, 2003) Watch online



A young bat breaks the law and views the sun, sparking a whirlwind of events that leads to hardship, loss, and leadership.



A pretty amazing miniseries (also edited into a 3 part movie series) that aired on ToonDisney way back in the day. Based on the book "Silverwing" by Kenneth Oppel. I'm not sure if they planned on doing episodes for the other books, but this was a great adaptation with interesting and memorable character designs and a surprisingly dark and adult story. It has cannibalism in it for crying out loud

7) Paradise PD ( 1 season, 2018-) Watch on Netflix



Insane antics of the Paradise City police department.



It's Brickleberry set in a town instead of a nature preserve. It's fucked up in all the great glorious ways Brickleberry was, only now there's no Daniel Tosh, replaced by an alcoholic, drug-obsessed sniffer dog, Bullet. It's offensive, deranged, stupid, and disgusting, but still alot of fun if you're into that. Season 2 was greenlit!
play/pause
8) She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (1 season, 2018-) Watch on Netflix



Adora of the Horde finds a mysterious sword in the forest, turning her into the 8 foot tall warrior She-Ra as she realizes she has to fight to save Eternia and her friends.



Okay, I didn't think I would like this. I saw it and the following it was getting and thought it looked too much like MLP which i do NOT like. I'm happy to say this is very very different. The writing is great, the environments fun to look at, character designs are pretty astounding, and the relationships of the characters are surprisingly believable and deep, especially Adora and Catra's. Episode 10 is especially poignant. It's still a bit gay, there was no saving that from the source material, but it's toned down and a background element. Still there but not as prominent. I bingewatched the whole show this week.
play/pause
9) Human Kind Of (1 season, 2018-) Watch on Facebook Watch



Judy finds out that she's half alien and suddenly has to figure out her powers and her position in the universe.



This is an odd one I only just recently found. The alien designs are interesting and Judy is a likeable character along with her mom and her best friend Cory. It's an odd slice-of-life show where crazy shit happens and characters just kind of roll with it. It doesn't break any barriers or set any records, but its a fun concept and interesting artstyle. Pretty solid show though every episode is only about 8 minutes long and it's on Facebook for some reason.

10 Long Gone Gulch (TBR 2019) Watch on Youtube (Long Gone Gulch OFFICIAL)



Screwups Snag and Rawhide find themselves as sheriffs for a town moving through an ever-present dust-cloud. Home to all sorts of beings from folklore and myths from all over the world.



Again, kind of cheating as this hasn't released yet. But the kickstarter was a massive success and the creators are incredibly active online detailing the process and timeline. So far it is set to premier this year with tons of people excited to see this.

Animation is an interesting art form and too many great shows are missed!



I have to say though, with the amount of independently created stuff coming out more and more frequently, and usually of pretty high quality, I think we just have more and more to look forward too!



What are some of you're favorite shows? I have another cartoon list if you guys are interested over in my gallery.
