Which Animated Shows Should I Try? Your Pressing TV Questions, Answered

Welcome back to Stay Tuned, Vulture's TV advice column. Each Wednesday, Margaret Lyons answers your questions about your various TV triumphs and woes. Need help? Have a theory? Want a recommendation? Submit a question! You can email or tweet @margeincharge with the hashtag #staytuned . Am I missing out by not watching animated shows? I know they can't be lumped together just because they're animated, but I've never been into animation on the whole and worry I'm unfairly discounting some good stuff. I've never tried Archer, Rick & Morty , and other shows people rave about. Recently I watched BoJack Horseman , though, and loved it the character development is so well done, and the women on the show had their own interesting story arcs. I've never been into the "everything stays the same" mode a lot of animated shows use. Is BoJack just super great? What else am I missing? Monika BoJack is super great, so it's not totally fair to measure other shows by its standards, but in general: Yeah, you're missing out by not watching animated shows. Archer doesn't have the depth and pathos of BoJack , but it is hilarious and it has season-long arcs where things do substantively change episode to episode. Rick & Morty is more episodic, but it does have real emotional range. If you like mythology series, give Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra a go. (Start with Avatar .) Read More...

Calvin Fischoeder, voiced by Kevin Kline, and his malevolent, surprisingly agile brother Felix will help you relax with their festive jazzy tune, the video of which Vulture has the honor of premiering above.

F Is for Family, Bob's Burgers Kick Off New Wave of Animated TV Comedies for Grown-Ups

Cartoons arent just for kids anymore, and the current state of adult-targeted animation is bothbig business and top quality. Some of the funniest sitcoms on the small-screen contain no live-action: From Netflix's BoJack Horseman to FX's Archer and Fox's Bobs Burgers. Then, of course, there are the still-strong pioneers, like The Simpsons, South Park, and Family Guy. Certainly the concept of grown-up cartoons isn't brand-new to the turn of 2016, but to animated comedies aimed at adult audiences are enjoying unprecedented success. So, why does a genre once meant for children and relegated to Saturday mornings now hold their parents attention between 8 and 11 p..m., as well as on-demand?
