Here they are! The 77 animated series which received the most points from you, the voters! It's my second day of a new job so I'm too tired to make a good post, honestly! But that's OK, because Leee and the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall are here to actually create and post the rollout, for which I'm grateful. OK!

not a fan of this taste

ciderpress, Tuesday, 10 September 2019 16:27 (one week ago) link

not a stellar start but only 2 votes hoping that means most of my ballot placed lol

Mordy, Tuesday, 10 September 2019 16:30 (one week ago) link

the episode of the simpsons where the critic shows up is good (not really because of the critic, but whatever), never seen an ep of the actual show

normal fucking rockman (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 10 September 2019 16:40 (one week ago) link

The episode with Sickle and Ebert was funny. Don't remember much else about the series beyond that.

How many ballots were there in the end?

emil.y, Tuesday, 10 September 2019 17:05 (one week ago) link

just missed my ballot but almost voted for it based on a combination of childhood affection and it being one of the few animated shows that had very visible jewish characters + narratives (including passover + channukah specials)

Mordy, Tuesday, 10 September 2019 17:05 (one week ago) link

The Simpsons being the other one?

Johnny Grottan from the Skeks Pistols (Leee), Tuesday, 10 September 2019 17:06 (one week ago) link

i rewatched most of the critic recently. largely holds up, rich characters, two of the greatest orson welles gags in pop culture history

Thought I'd voted for Rugrats but it didn't survive my main-poll chopping. Definitely childhood affection but I'm sure it would stand up relatively well.

Aw, who was the first-placer for Willo the Wisp? It was on my ballot but I didn't get around to re-watching so it was totally a vote from kid-me. But even the character designs totally rule:

didn't quite reach 'w' in my alphabetical survey of the nominations :(

Johnny Grottan from the Skeks Pistols (Leee), Tuesday, 10 September 2019 19:08 (one week ago) link

I’m curious, did anyone not stick to the nomination list or just me?

ilm jive mind (FlopsyDuck), Tuesday, 10 September 2019 19:12 (one week ago) link

i stayed away from death note for so long bc the premise sounded stupid i was like "how could this show about high schoolers writing names in a death book be any good and not just mopey unrealistic hs drama" but they do a very good job of exploring what such a scenario would actually look like and at least for the first half of the show the cat + mouse stuff is really engaging and interesting. the supernatural element never really gets satisfactorily explored and after the [SPOILER] original antagonist dies his replacement just feels like a knock-off and the whole plot sorta loses the thread at that point. but the first chunk of the show is v compelling. (don't think this was on my final ballot.)

Mordy, Tuesday, 10 September 2019 19:18 (one week ago) link

death note kinda lives in that space of widely popular thing that no one i know is particularly evangelical about so i've never gotten the push to watch it

ciderpress, Tuesday, 10 September 2019 19:18 (one week ago) link

I voted for a fair amount of Ye Olde Englishe animation but Mr Benn didn't make my cut. Death Note did, though, and I'm kind of surprised it got so few votes.

Thanks for running the poll! Any plans for the theme song rollout?

Vinnie, Wednesday, 18 September 2019 12:53 (two days ago) link

realistically I'm going to sum them up at some arbitrary time in the next 7 days and dump them with youtube links in pretty short order, not sure how many total ballots or consensus I'm likely to find in there!

Would be good to have a general theme song poll. Easy to check out as short, easy to find video links too.

I may have messed up my script somehow generating the Dregs list, it's not registering ties, but that…doesn't bother me

president of deluded fruitcakes anonymous (silby), Wednesday, 18 September 2019 17:24 (two days ago) link

should have given count duckula a few more points, could've just made it to the 77.

confirmed ilx does not like family guy

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Wednesday, 18 September 2019 17:28 (two days ago) link

When I was a teenager I obtained the first few seasons of family guy on dvd and enjoyed them

president of deluded fruitcakes anonymous (silby), Wednesday, 18 September 2019 17:29 (two days ago) link

I remember it being slightly better before it was cancelled, but that might be a delusion

untuned mass damper (mh), Wednesday, 18 September 2019 17:32 (two days ago) link

I like the first few seasons ok. not enough to give them a vote. american dad was much better.

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Wednesday, 18 September 2019 17:32 (two days ago) link

do kids these days even know it was cancelled? probably not!

Family Guy could be good when it properly channelled McFarlane's assholeness (it would also be very terrible when it did that, of course)

Chipmunks was mine! I watched it on repeat for about three hours a day between the ages of 4 and 8 and it is how I came to develop my understanding of everything in American culture and history. Chipmunks at the Movies in particular I think had a big effect on how my life’s turned out.

Mommy...can I go out and VAPE tonight? (voodoo chili), Wednesday, 18 September 2019 22:23 (two days ago) link

Good results!

this show starts off sucking ass let us not forget
Lots of great shows start out with a bad pilot.

#1 - It would have been cool if anything besides The Simpsons was the winner, but it's not an inappropriate #1 either. It's crazy how many perfect episodes they've done. Probably more than the total number for about half of the shows on this list.

#2 - Bojack at #2 is a refreshing surprise for sure. I definitely have not seen it praised as highly anywhere else. Like Stranger Things and a few other current shows, I've been hoping it soon wraps things up. It might be the only show on this list that made me cry.

#3 - Adventure Time is a challenge. I had to go through its ILX thread, made a list, and skipped over the episodes without a recommendation from someone. It was worth the effort.

#4 - John DiMaggio and Billy West are two of the best voice actors of all time, but imo they use their most annoying inflections on Futurama. Even when the jokes are ok, they're always executed with an extra wink to the viewer. I don't think I've ever once laughed at this show.

#5 - Ignoring its worst fans, I will love Rick & Morty forever - a show that I did not like at first. I am very concerned the new season will be horrible.

#6 - As a huge Home Movies fan, I'm so happy its spirit continues through Bob's Burgers. Again, I don't think I've seen it praised as highly elsewhere. But it deserves to be the #6 best animated show ever. This feels very appropriate.

#8 - Beavis and Butthead was my #1. It's a much deeper show than its surface might indicate.

#9 - I never got into Daria, but maybe I'll give it another shot.

#10 - Home Movies deserves top 10. There's a fun story in pretty much every episode.

#11 - I should binge Space Ghost at some point in the next year. Also I'm kinda disappointed Sealab didn't place higher.

#14 - Ren & Stimpy has a few of the most incredible animated moments I've ever seen -- especially the "Cousin Sven's Visit" episode. I was heartbroken when the John K story broke.

#18 - Was Animaniacs this good?

billstevejim, Thursday, 19 September 2019 01:31 (yesterday) link

i didn't vote for animaniacs, but when i was grabbing images for the results - i realized it def had it's moments. enough so that i regretted not making space for it. tho looks like it did fine without me.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Thursday, 19 September 2019 04:18 (yesterday) link

#8 - Beavis and Butthead was my #1.

high five

Vernon Locke, Thursday, 19 September 2019 05:29 (yesterday) link

adventure time my #1
'thank you' my fav episode if people want to check
the most perfect and hilarious ending to anything i've ever seen

Bojack Horseman
Kim Possible
Justice League Unlimited
Hey Arnold!
The Simpsons
Steven Universe

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Spectacular Spider-Man aired in the early 00s and is probably my favourite superhero show after B:TAS. The two shows aren't very much alike, but I like Spectacular for similar reasons - it's evidently made by people with a lot of knowledge and affection for the source material, but has a very distinct style and direction of its own. Too bad it only got two seasons.

Kim Possible is probably the highest-ranking entry I find most difficult to defend objectively. It made me laugh at a time when I badly needed it, though I doubt it holds up all that well. But if nothing else, it's got a another great John DiMaggio role in Dr Drakken.

I didn't watch enough of it to vote, but I'm mildly surprised Gargoyles got almost nothing.

Duane Barry, Thursday, 19 September 2019 16:33 (yesterday) link

I've never watched a Boondocks episode, but realized yesterday it got no votes. I liked the comic strip, is the series bad or just not memorable?

nickn, Thursday, 19 September 2019 16:42 (yesterday) link

its good, i forgot about it completely somehow

ciderpress, Thursday, 19 September 2019 16:54 (yesterday) link

was it not on the nominations list maybe

ciderpress, Thursday, 19 September 2019 16:54 (yesterday) link

whenever i read the word "toons" i still get the homestar voice in my head saying "toons...games...downloads...characters" etc. the exact cadence is etched in my brain

A few months ago HSR's voice saying "downloads!" suddenly started popping up in my head anytime I open my "Downloads" folder.
