Family Guy is one of the crappiest shows ever made. I've gotten into vicious arguments with people over this pap. I can't believe people like it. It's completely derivative. Its idea of a joke is to almost indentically recreate something from pop culture. Their biggest crutch is "remember that time when..." or "this is just like that time when..."

It's also horribly offensively abusive towards all their female characters. It seems like every episode a woman is being abused in horrible ways.

Finally it's poorly drawn, poorly animated, and badly colored. There is nothing redeeming about the show.

Exactly. You can bet good money that one of those lines will appear at least 5 times in every episode.

God, yes.
Even if it wasn't constantly going for the lowest common denominator, this show is unwatchable to me because I can't stand to look at it. The art style is just too "Sunday Funnies" for me. Yecch.

If you think the new simpsons episodes are better then ANY south park episode EVER.....That's odd.

After 10 years South Park is still funny whereas the Simpsons started to become horrible after 10 years.

But I'll agree 100% that early simpsons own.

Some of the said shows (Simpsons/South Park/Family Guy) have made me laugh a few times but I don't think any of them are brilliant or anything. Perhaps the Simpsons at some point, though I have never really muched watch of it.

Funny how (in England at least) Ren and Stimpy has been pretty much forgotten about, i actually think its really good fun.

The problem with Family Guy is the characters are so 2 Dimensional (no pun intended) though i do think Stewie is a really great creation. The reason the Simpsons is good is because you actually care about them and what happens to them, and i disagree with South Park being toted as "highbrow", people of almost all ages can enjoy it for various reasons, whether you like the social satire or the scat humour.

Incidentally i think the main constituent part of South Park is social satire rather than Pop Culture - like the way they did Scientology, it was about the way people behave under the influence of Religion.
Family Guy just goes "Oh look, its Gary Coleman, he's short..." yawn yawn yawn.

Tom and Jerry is hilarious. As are most old cartoons. Old disney, warner brothers, and MGM shorts were great.

Newer cartoons make me laugh. . . but I think there is something to be said for universality.

The Marx brothers will always be hilarious.

Absurdity and irony are things that will never grow old. Pop-culture references will.

the bono joke made me laugh my ass off, he was galloping through the african village singing "yeah yeah yeah yeah"

The unaired Ren and Stimpy episode "Man's Best Friend" has made me laugh and squirm on many levels.

The one I'm talking about had a whole militaristic/homosexual/bestiality/Dom-Sub thing going on between George Liquor and R&S that was insane.
