After a long week of exams, Auburn students deserve a few days to relax and binge-watch some new TV series. But with so many different services producing new originals, it can be hard to find gems in your Netflix homepage. For cartoon series geared towards an older audience, this can be even more difficult. We want the toilet humor and the dad jokes. But we also want interesting characters and plots to keep us coming back for more. Only a handful of cartoons have been able to succeed in both.
If this sounds all too familiar, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a bucket list for anyone who can’t outgrow Saturday morning cartoons.

You probably saw this one coming. We follow the crazy adventures of an alcoholic scientist, Rick, and his mediocre grandson, Morty. While the pilot episode was a quirky space adventure and a great introduction to the show, we explore many complex and interesting characters within the Smith family. While every episode is just as action-packed and unique as the last, many fans come back to learn more about their favorite unstable family. Whether you love the philosophic and scientific undertones, or you just like toilet humor, Rick and Morty is worth a little bit of everyone’s time.
An FX classic, this show is the perfect balance of The Office and Get Smart. Sterling Archer, voiced by cartoon legend H. John Benjamin, claims to be the ‘most dangerous spy in the world’. Underneath, he’s an alcoholic narcissist with deep childhood trauma and unhealthy relationships with almost every person he knows. The show is full of unadmirable yet interesting characters, making it a fresh experience. Not to mention, it’s full of intense action scenes and mean-spirited humor. If the spy-genre gets old, the series has seasons dedicated to new settings and plotlines. They’ve reimagined the entire cast into operating a cocaine business, a detective agency, and even a 1940’s Los Angeles gang. Come for the weird, action-packed adventures, and stay for the infamous running gags.
Hopefully, none of us remember our experience with puberty like this. This Netflix Original rings painfully relatable in every episode. Big Mouth follows the every-day routine of Andrew and his imaginary “hormone-monster”, Maurice. As he tackles the awkwardness of growing into an adult, his friends Nick and Jessi suffer through their own experiences that many of us are too familiar with. Some amazing comedy talents, such as Nick Kroll, Maya Rudolph, and Jordan Peele, have never held back when pushing the boundaries in this show. If you can get past the cringe-worthy and graphic depictions of the middle school experience, you’ll love this relatable and honestly funny new series.
On the surface, it may just look like the animated lovechild of Star Trek: The Next Generation and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. But this long-running series has been a favorite of many cartoon fans for a reason. After a pizza man named Fry is cryogenically frozen by accident, he wakes up in the 31st century. After finding his only living relative, simply called “The Professor”, he works for a space-delivery company alongside his alien colleagues. This show has a unique group of loveable characters and the classic wacky adventures you would expect from an animated series. If you haven’t seen this TV classic yet, make some plans to stay in tonight.
Don’t let the animal characters give you the wrong idea. This is definitely not a kid’s show. After peaking in his career as a sitcom star in the 90’s, BoJack Horseman goes through a major mid-life crisis as he tries to go from rock bottom to back in the limelight. Starring household names Will Arnett, Alison Brie, and Aaron Paul, this show isn’t traditional in any sense. Aside from the colorful animation and setting, much of the humor stems from BoJack’s inability to succeed in anything. While it seems strange to laugh at the main character’s expense, it’s also part of the series’ unique charm. If you’re looking for something completely fresh and different in a cartoon, BoJack Horseman delivers.
If you grew up loving The Simpsons, you may also be a fan of Bob’s Burgers. We follow the daily antics of the Belchers, a middle-class family running a small burger joint on their own. Bob, voiced by H. John Benjamin, constantly pushes to beat his competition and become the most popular and creative restaurant in town. Linda, his ditzy yet optimistic wife, and his three kids, Tina, Gene, and Louise, have their own unique escapades as they assist Bob in running the store and advertising around town. Every member of the family has their own hilarity to their personalities, which makes it easy for anyone to become addicted to the show. Whether you like the loud, nonsensical and somewhat dumb humor from Gene, or the deadpan tone and dad jokes from Bob, everyone should watch this series at least once.
