MLP:FiM won,

Family Guy is overrated.
The Simpsons should have ended 5-6 seasons ago.
"DO THE MONKEY WITH ME!"
I'm on the verge of calling Legend of Korra a cartoon, so it is.
Korra is good series so far.

Your thread has been summarized.

Futurama. One of the wittiest shows I've ever seen, and even the new episodes are great.

Family Guy, My Little Pony, and every show made after 2005.

Swat Katz. Such a great show. It was the last cartoon I saw 5 years ago, it was the first show in a long time that I really found to be gripping. The scenarios were really clever, as were the gadgets. And Dear G-d do I love T-Bone and Razor as characters. They're such an awesome pair. Top Cat is also really good, so funny. Oh, and the original Garfield and Friends. Used to watch it all the time. Kinda grown a bit stale now, though.

MAD. Absolutey brilliant. (Pardon my spelling)
What's overrated?
Code Lyoko. Now if you excuse me, I'll be in my cupboard hiding. (Have you seen its fanbase? Code Lyoko ended in 2007. Everyone begged for it to come back and wouldnt stop asking for it. In 2011/12, it was announced to be coming back due to overwhelming demand. That was 4 YEARS OF BEGGING. Incredible)
What's underrated?
Family Guy

@PikminMonster
I never really got into Code Lyoko, but the plot was pretty good from the episodes that aired, the animation was also good from what I remember, and, most importantly, it took it's viewer seriously. I really don't see it as a bad thing it's coming back, but I would rather see other shows, like Megas XLR, come back and be finished.

I can't tell if you're trolling or not. If a show has prime time airings on at least 4 of the channels I have available, more merchandise than Angry Birds, broadcast by FOX, going 10 seasons strong, AND has only average comedic writing for the most part, I don't think Family Guy can be called overrated.
.
If you REALLY want to see good adult writing, go look up the Simpsons episodes "Kamp Krusty", "A Streetcar Named Marge", and "Homer the Heretic".
Easily the best adult writing of... well anything. The newer seasons aren't bad, not by any means, but when paired up to episodes like these, they don't come close.

I think Code Lyoko was pretty good, plots got kinda repetitive towards the middle of its run but things really shook up towards the end.
What channel is Code Lyoko gonna air on?
Probably not CN again, but still...
I think a show that's overrated is MLP:FiM.
I watched the first few episodes (1-4), and I didn't see anything special about it. My 8-year old sister came downstairs, watched an episode, said it was terrible and went back to watching Regular Show, The Simpsons and Too Cute: Kittens. NO JOKE.
And you know a show that's underrated: (augh I'm gonna get so much hate for this...) My Gym Partner's a Monkey.
I really enjoyed that show while it was on. And Chowder too.
Also, Young Justice is getting good again.
Ooh! Korra is great and so was the original, the last airbender. (Technically it's anime, but it airs on Nick and it is made in the US, i'll let it slide.)

The Last Air Bender is american produced, so it's not anime. Heck, They were made in California. The character designs are anime influenced, but that's it.

I heard about Code Lyoko coming back too. You guys should count your blessings that you weren't there to hear me scream like the most hyperactive school girl ever, in history. I can't wait to see how they're going to continue the show. I was probably the biggest fanboy ever for that show.

I swear, the first time I read that I thought it said "Popeye the sailor moon". Several hilarious and oh-so-horrible images popped into my head all at once.

EDIT: As for my current favorite cartoon, it's Regular Show. It's a blast of random, unexpected ideas thrown into cleverly-structured narratives with the humor of the "That was so terrible it had to be made on purpose!" comedy.

I'm really into futurama I'm just worried about the show turning into the simpsons where you don't watch it cuz it's hilarious u just watch it cuz it's been on for so long you're just used to seeing it.
I think Adventure Time is overrated, the show is not that great and my friends are obsessed with it.
Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated (the newest reboot) was underrated and they were actually trying to be a little more serious with their villains this time.

I actually really dislike how they tried to make Scooby Doo a bit more serious this time around. Just didn't feel right.

Because 1-4 aren't good episodes. I didn't like it till I saw some episode near the end of season 1.

Home Movies. It was that or Futurama and the new Futurama episodes are so mediocre and disappointing that it comes in second.

Bobhobob wrote:

Well, let's see. The Seth MacFarlane trio, of course... and Friendship is Magic. The former is just bad and FiM is good but not amazing. But those have both been said before (Family Guy and FiM that is). Total Drama Island is just annoying and Flapjack is the worst abomination of cartoon-kind I've ever seen.

Well, these are more under-known than underrated, but it technically fits the bill. Home Movies, of course, and my brother just recently started showing me episodes of Sealab 2021, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, and my personal favorite The Brak Show.
