Here's my rankings (one being the best)

1. The Simpsons: Seasons 1-8 (WINNER)
2. The Simpsons: Seasons 13-15
3. Futurama: Seasons 1-3
4. Futurama: Season 4 (First Half)
5. Family Guy
6. The Simpsons: Seasons 9-12
7. Futurama: Season 4 (Second Half)
8. South Park

I like all these shows but they're pretty different. Futurama and The Simpsons rely on their plots whereas Family Guy and South Park rely on humor.

The Simpsons is my favorite, though.   big grin

A poll of "crazy" cartoons and Invader Zim is not on the list -- not to mention a host of other classic cartoons? There are 6 more openings in the poll form! You sir, are a fool.

Since Futurama will no doubt eat this poll alive. I'm gonna give my vot to South Park.

Leelaholic: define "Crazy" cartoon. Because there's not a single Williams Street production in that poll, it's just 4 well established prime time sitcoms, so it seems like a somewhat vague and sketchy poll.

Good shows that are sometimes tainted with a little shock humor.

That's Invader Zim all over! Not to mention Tom & Jerry, Pinky & the Brain, Animaniacs, Tiny Toons, etc.!

Also, Leelaholic - South Park tends to rely on sattire & parody rather than just humour. Speaking of South Park... ummm, I voted for it.

Eh, I'm not entirely happy with this poll either. No Zim or Rocko's Modern Life or a bunch of the Adult Swim stuff, plus "The Simpsons" is debateable since a lot of people don't actually watch it for the wackiness specifically.

Is one of the best crazy cartoons ever. But I chose Family Guy because it's unpredictible. Anything can happen (IE The Kool Aid Joke in Episode 1)

This is the worst thread I have ever seen. The choices are wacky. I never considered The Simpsons or Futurama a crazy cartoon.

Gnome is right. Zim should be all over this.

Worst poll ever.*  Along with Zim, Freakazoid, Animanicas, etc, where's the option of the entire output of Tex Avery, the man who pretty much invented crazy cartoons?

Anyway, I voted for Family Guy, because it's the craziest of the choices listed.

It's worse than the Favorite Anime poll, but at least we got an 'other' choice there.

But if I have to choose out of those 4 it would be Family Guy. The pacing's quicker than other cartoons, and the flasbacks alone make it worth watching.

But I also want my Animaniacs and Freakazoid.

Hmm...I'd actually like to ask, why are people saying Futurama ISN'T wacky?  I mean, its not an inheritely bad thing or anything.  Its a science fiction comedy, of course its going to be a little wacky...

You all need to be executed. The Simpsons are comparable to all things holy in this world. And I agree with whoever said that this is the single worst poll. Ever.

Seriously, did these people WATCH Amazon Women in the Mood, Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles, or the Sting?  Some of the craziest half-hours in television.

On a seperate note...

Gandhi: Numbers don't lie.
Number 3: I'm the number four!

Joan: ...And that's why you shouldn't smoke raisins.
George Washington: That Joan of Arc makes a compelling argument.
JFK: All cool people report to my van to smoke raisins!
George Washington: That JFK makes a compelling argument.

Yeah, exactly Nixorbo.  The wackiness is part of Futurama's charm, always has been (especcially in seasons one and two when there wasn't even much else to it).  Even the most relatively "down to earth" episodes have, shall we say, wacky things like sewer mutants and  cloning devices made from children's toys.  Nothing wrong with that, its a science fiction comedy.

Actually, I was just repeating a poll I started at NHC. I tried to bring the joy here but everyone was like...

"OMG!! FTF?? Dis iz Dee WurSt poll evaH!!! Leelaholic, U Shood be Ashameed!! FDGR HB vb z xsre Five dollars?? Get outta here!"

It was supposed to be a simple competition between four quality shows, but noooo. "I want my Freakazoid!", "I want my Invader ZIM!", "Leelaholic, you iz teh bastard for theese choices!!"
