Well his questions relates well to his poll, "Which one of these is your favorite?" Not "What IS your favorite?" See the difference?

I like the idea of the poll but it is a little restricted, as there are a lot of things missing.

I just watched the simpsons and now I'm watching futurama. :)

Its hard to choose between South Park and Futurama. South Park is more consistently amusing, but Futurama has these deep deep moments.

what is with all the people here liking south park better than the other three

and i was so hoping there would be more than 4 options, given that this cartoon poll is supposed to be ultimate. for example, the venture brothers is a great one.

Then not voting would be a good start.

Family Guy FTW! Brian makes me laugh myself into involuntary <censored>! Shame there's no American Dad in the poll though. That fish, man!

It would be a difficult choice between south park and spongebob.

I love Futurama (and voted for it), but that's not deep -- just blatant emotional manipluation.

LOL I thought it was good but fine, then how about the bee jelly?

btw, I voted south park in the end.

Don't get me wrong, Futurama is well-written and very clever, but clever is not the same as deep. They bring up some moderately sophisticated concepts and then exploit them for cheap laughs. Which is what makes the show great.

I think maybe what t0p means by "deep" has more to do with character development and emotional storytelling. It's not really "emotional manipulation" to get the audience to connect with the characters and care what happens to them. IMO, the Bee-Jelly episode is a great example of that.

Yes, there are great character moments in Futurama. "Jurassic Bark," however, is not one of them IMO, which is the episode I was talking about. There's emotional storytelling and then there's wildly overdoing it.

That's the aforementioned episode with the dog. It doesn't so much tug on the heartstrings as pull them out with a pair of pliers and step on them repeatedly.
