5 Shows like South Park: Cartoons for Adults

Simon Hamilton itcher‘South Park’ is undoubtedly the greatest adult animated series to hit television. It’s a testament to the comic genius of Trey Parker and Matt Stone that it’s been going for so long yet still manages to not only push the limits of bad taste while remaining hilarious, but also provide scathing social critiques of all the main issues of the day.

Shows Similar to ‘South Park’

This article recommends an underrated title, a must-see title, an unknown title, an ‘if you like, you will like’ title and an unexpected title so you have different options when it comes to choosing your next movie to watch.



‘Futurama’ (Fox, 1999-2003)

This a show with mixed reviews which was cancelled after four seasons. It’s about a born loser who, while delivering pizzas, ends up cryogenically frozen… and then thaws out to find himself in the year 3300.

Offering well-timed humour and memorable characters, this is a very much underrated animated comedy.


Similarity Match

Matt Groening's successful but short-lived attempt at a comedy sci-fi. 



‘King of The Hill’ (Fox, 1997-2010)

Mike Judge continued his success after ‘Beavis and Butthead’ with this enjoyable animated show about a Texan gas salesman and his family from Texas.

Full of subtle parodies and observational humour about Texan rednecks and their idiosyncratic way of life, this is a show which deserves wider recognition and viewership outside of America.


Similarity Match

Think 'The Simpsons' as rednecks, but with more nuance and subtlety. 



‘Aqua Teen Hunger Force’ (The Cartoon Network, 2000-2015)

There aren’t too many shows about anthropomorphic fast food on television, but this is one (believe it or not!) which was even turned into a feature-length film.

Fans of the Cartoon Network’s “Adult Swim” line-up will undoubtedly be familiar with this amusingly ridiculous animation, but it truly deserves to be known to a wider audience.


Similarity Match

The delightfully absurd escapades of a milkshake, a box of fries and a meatball. 



‘BoJack Horseman’ (Netflix, 2014-ongoing)

This is an amusing but rather dark and grounded tale of a once-famed actor from the 1990s. Two decades on and ‘BoJack Horseman’ is well past his prime and living a life of despondency.

This isn’t a deliberately provocative animation like ‘South Park’ with ample helpings of toilet humour. Rather, it’s a scathing indictment of Hollywood and the entertainment industry. Still, if you’re interested in a cartoon series similar to ‘South Park’, which is aimed at a more mature audience, this is one to check out.


Similarity Match

A refreshing and surprisingly deep animation following a washed-up former sitcom star. 


If You Like ‘South Park’, You Will Like

‘Beavis and Butthead’ (MTV, 1993-1997)

If you’re looking for a TV series like ‘South Park’, the show that brought Mike Judge fame and fortune should be at the top of your list.

‘Beavis and Butthead’ is a hilariously crude depiction of two delinquent, under-educated and idiotic teenagers and their various misadventures. We’ve all heard of it, of course, but if you’re a twenty-something today you probably missed out on its brilliance.


Similarity Match

A startlingly accurate portrayal of two teenage metal-loving drop outs.
