Do you mean old episodes or new? For me it's the writing and the large cast of well-developed characters that always made the show good, not if it's gut busting funny to people or not. The Simpsons had very intelligent thinking humor, while to me Family Guy is more retarded "in-your-face" shock value type humor (which the fans seem to prefer either cause they don't want to sit through real storylines in a show or they just don't get subtle humor). We're always saying how character and storytelling is one of the things that make Pixar films so great, and I think the same applies to the classic episodes of The Simpsons.

Am I really the only person who voted Futurama their favorite show? :?

Yeah, Futurama is my favorite show, but a year ago I would have told you South Park. I still love South Park, but Futurama really came back for me, with the new episodes and all, they're still really good!

And I used to absolutely love Family Guy.... then I graduated from Jr. High School :wink:

I'm going with South Park because instead of using comedic timing, which is what cheaters (like the modern episodes of Family Guy), South Park uses...just good writing.


Futurama=close second...I THINK. Everything on this list is good in one way or another, whether it be pure food for thought like South Park, or great delivery like Family Guy. So it's hard to choose.

Well, I love the Simpsons. Few of the new episodes are heartwarming and funny but does not live up to its wonderful past- the family values and devotion.

Family Guy has good moments of smart humor, but seriously, they cheat. In fact, I will not be surprise if we find out the writers are just manatees swimming around in their tanks taking idea balls...

I can't really judge Futurama, I don't watch the show much. Though I have seen funny episodes.

It took curiosity to get me into South Park. I just wanted to see how laugable it was. And when I watched it, I was amazed at its social relevance. The humor can be childish, but the premises and themes are genuis satire. Many times it crosses the line: for example, even though I am a Christian, I actually found the Scientology episode very offending. I actually laugh with some of jokes of Jesus. There was even one episode where the writers Parker and Stone actually exhibited their understanding of Christianity despite being strong agnostics themselves. Not to mention the truth they exposed about Family Guy...

It's a tied for Simpsons and South Park.

I don't watch it cause it's not my kind of humor, but the town that Family Guy takes place in is based after my home town.

The Simpsons: Clever jokes and writing,charecters. Makes me laugh.

Futurama: It's good but not great.

futurama wins it for me, so many quotable moments and brilliant characters.
I love the other 3 as well, although I prefer seasons 1-3 of family guy. I wouldn't of minded American dad being in the poll because I think thats my second favourite after futurama.
You can be so selfish, can't you see that i'm doing this for me!

Oh, The Simpsons, all the way. Honestly, while I can't comment on the recent "decline" as I haven't seen any of the newer episodes, I always thought it was a very steady show. And I normally don't enjoy adult-aimed animations. The writing was always solid, pop culture references were enough to be like "Hey, I know that guy!" instead of bombarding us with them to the point where it isn't funny if you don't get it, and the main cast was actually pretty sympathetic.

Simpsons all the way.

South Park is just terrible. I find the humour too crude for my tastes., and it pretty much relies on the shock-value of it's jokes/storylines.

The Simpsons is a great animated classic that can pretty much be enjoyed by the whole family, not like with South Park, which is not even remotely child appropriate.

Just voicing my opinion,not hating on South Park, my sister watches it all the time so I have had to sit through a few episodes.

I don't work at being ordinary.

Too crude? Shock Value? South Park is by far the most creative out of any of the choices given. It's TV-MA, it's not meant to be for people under 18. Making something child appropriate doesn't make something good and that is why I hate The Simpsons. I see it as being too childish.
