    I love the old Simpsons, I was practically raised on 'em hahaha....the last several years haven't been as good, but I still watch 'em...Family Guy has some really awful moments that I hate, but most episodes I enjoy, there's just a few that are really awful/go "too far". South Park is awesome, but I haven't watched it in like a year and a half...need to change that soon. And Futurama is great too. I also like American Dad, it's better then Family Guy and way better then The Cleveland Show (which is pretty fucking terrible...like the worst of Family Guy, all the time). I also enjoy other comedies like a bunch of the Thursday night NBC ones, weird shit like Fringe and X Files, a bunch of HBO/Showtime stuff....I watch too much TV :/

    Same here, old Simpsons is great but the newer stuff is awful. South Park is my favourite cartoon, it's still funny even with the newer eps. And as for Family Guy... don't get me started. I hate it. The randomness of it really annoys me and it rips off The Simpsons too much. Almost all the episodes don't stick to the 'story' and the jokes are all just "This is like the time when..." ARGH! How is that funny? Anyone can make jokes like that. And I don't like how they prolong a certain scene, e.g. Brian vomiting, it went on for aaaaaaages. OK we fucking got it after the first 10 seconds. And also sometimes they'll throw in a really long song for no apparent reason, it's like they can't think of anything to add so let's just shove in a song to make up for time! Urgh... HOWEVER, when FG isn't doing all that, and actually sticks to the storyline, then it can be really good... though this is rare.

    I really don't get the whole "family guy is a simpsons ripoff" thing. Aside from it being about a family with a fat, stupid father, there are no comparison points. Aside from Peter and Homer, the two families are completely different, I hardly remember Maggie trying to take over the world. The funny thing is, I've noticed that newer Simpsons episodes have actually started stealing the cutaway joke format that made Family Guy popular.

    Now I'm not a huge fan of either Family Guy or The Simpsons, but I think out of the two I prefer Family Guy. The reason being that The Simpsons was only funny for a really short period of time, the really early episodes were preachy, predictable, all-american crap that was neither funny nor compelling, the newest Simpsons episodes are worse, but for a completely different reason (mainly that the writers just stopped caring about the characters they had established) so the show was really only any good during the early 00's. Now, the episodes during that period probably made me laugh more than the average Family Guy episode. But, overall, Family Guy has still been more consistently funny.

    Like alot of people on the forum, I really like South Park, but only really the episodes made after the movie. The first couple of series were just poor, I honestly think the only reason it got so popular was because parents hated it. I also like alot of the old Adult Swim cartoons like 12oz mouse, Space Ghost, Moral Orel etc.

    i'd point out that a lot (not all, but a lot) of the "offensive" humor in family guy is there specifically to ridicule and put down people who have those viewpoints in real life. a lot of it isn't meant to be racist/sexist/homohobic etc, but to hold up a funhouse mirror to the racists/sexists/homophobes and make them see themselves how the rest of the world sees them, and to give us a good laugh at their expense.

    The Simpsons is great. Along with Doctor Who, it's about the only thing I enjoy watching on tv.

    I'm a bit of a cartoon fan myself. Haven't really watched Simpsons or Family Guy in quite a while, though.

    I like too many cartoons to list.

    I guess if there's one cartoon I've been watching recently on a regular basis, it would be Bob's Burgers. That's just off the top of my head.

    Like I said, there are too many cartoons I like to list at this point.
