Despite being different kinds of animals and object, they are all presented in a very human way
This is how I announce how odd it is that Adventure Time didn't make the list.
My thoughts exactly. VGK clearly isn't just the king of video games...
OP, if you haven't watched Adventure Time yet, I'd advise that you do so. The show has varied and, most importantly, likable characters; the plots for every episode (that I've seen, at least) seem fresh and even evoke emotional reactions at times (Holly Jolly Secrets and I Remember You are two of the most gripping episodes of any TV show in my opinion); the episodes occasionally explore more complex, mature themes (see my last parenthetical); the animation is a well-done, bright affair that can appeal to anyone who appreciates such aesthetics (it also appeals to stoners, more or less for the same reason); the episodes occasionally explore more complex, mature themes (see the two episodes I mentioned earlier); and the innuendo/censor teasers are laudable.
Also, Neil Patrick Harris, George Takei, Matthew Broderick, Lou Ferrigno, and Henry Rollins. Yes, the guy from Black Flag.
And this is coming from someone who got the episodes on a jump drive from a friend a week ago. A week ago. Yeah, this show grabs a hold of you quickly.
Alright, I had to get that all off my chest; haven't circlejerked to myself about anything in a while. Well, there you go.
Overall, I'd say the OP picked decent choices for his favorite TV shows. That is all.
Considering recent episodes in both of the shows, I feel like this thread should come back.
For me, I'd have to say I prefer Adventure Time. Although I like the retro vibe, the humor, and the laidback nature of the voice acting in The Regular Show, Adventure Time has an edge for a variety of reasons:
Although I like Regular Show's animation style, for some reason the brightness of Adventure Time's animation appeals to me more.
I think there's a lot more depth in Adventure Time; after all, The Regular Show will most likely never indulge in discussions of nuclear holocaust bringing the modern world to an end, leading to the development of a stranger, more magical one (The Mushroom Wars), nor will it examine the deep sadness that runs through memory loss via dementia (watch "I Remember You" to get what I'm talking about; it is, in my opinion, the most emotional, tear-jerking episode of any cartoon I've ever seen (then again, my history with Alzheimer's most likely influences me on this one), primarily due to the multi-faceted nature of its tragic subject matter).
The silliness of Adventure Time's humor has subtle nuances that add to a lot to the humor; being a deeply analytical person, I get a lot out of it (only this show could make me possibly laugh at the use of the word "butt"). Meanwhile, I find The Regular Show's humor to be more surface-level; although it's good, I prefer things that run just a tad bit deeper.
I think the world presented in Adventure Time is more memorable, and I really like the characters (who are a lot more numerous and varied) more. Although The Regular Show also features likable locales and characters, the setting of the show pales in comparison to the gorgeously-animated, fantastical places featured in the other program, and I don't care about the characters nearly as much (once again, AT episodes like "I Remember You" really add to the appeal of the characters).
Although The Regular Show probably features more innuendo, I think AT handles the adult-ish humor more effectively.
