As you may have noticed from my theme, “All Things Geek,” I might not be all the way grown up. If you needed more clues to my maturity level, check out my previous posts for the A t0 Z Challenge so far.
The thing is, I don’t feel that liking geeky things makes me less of an adult. I just happen to be an adult that LOVES weird and awesome things. And that is ok.
On to the letter C! Today, ladies and gentlemen, we are talking about cartoons.
I love cartoons. I always have and always will. Anime, from day one is one type of cartoon, but I wanted to talk about a few of my favorites that use a different style of animation.
If you haven’t seen Bob’s Burgers, you are missing out on some awesome comedy. It’s basically about Bob, who own’s a burger restaurant. He and his family get into trouble every episode and it’s amazing.

They just added season 5 to Netflix and I couldn’t be happier. I do have to restrain myself from watching ALL the new episodes by myself before Luke gets home. I’m sure he’s waiting to watch them with me too…RIGHT, LUKE?!
Plus, every character gets there moment to shine (err…mess up) and I love them all.
Another favorite cartoon that I find myself gravitating back to every once in awhile is Futurama. So funny. The seasons are all done being created now (that I know of), but it’s still makes me laugh after seeing each episode a billion times.
I am NOT caught up on Adventure Time at all, but it will always have a place in my heart. I remember when the short cartoon version was a huge hit on YouTube and when the show was announced. Mathamatical! Although Adventure Time plays on Cartoon Network (and KIDS loves it), it has it’s deep moments which really make the show more mature. Plus, they give great advice sometimes!
This one is terrible. But like a train wreck, I could not look away. It takes place in an alternate United States where animals are also people (?!), but some of the same celebrities walk around too. The story revolves around a washed up actor named Bojack Horseman who used to be a huge sitcom star in the 80s. His life has gone down the crapper since the show ended and he wants to revitalize his career by writing a memoir. It’s really SO bad…but I’ve watched it through at least twice now. Weird.
