The editors of WowCheckItOut have reviewed a good half of the cartoons on Netflix and advise those who will laugh, touch, and make viewers of any age think.
Love for cartoons is timeless. As a child, we comprehended fairy-tale worlds together with “Cubs,” teenagers received a catch-up for watching the forbidden “Family Guy” – in short, we know how nice it is to get lost in the cartoon world. And it’s not just that CGI technologies have erased wrinkles from the faces of members of the corporation “Secret” (the heroes of the series of cartoons and animated series “Scooby-Doo”).
From two-dimensional cartoons to plasticine animation and CGI, who knows what the future holds? Animation technologies are constantly evolving without losing their analog charm. It is necessary to curl up in front of the screen. Under the influence of creative cartoon storytelling and visual stimulation, capable of stretching with any game movie, an inner child wakes up in us.
Fortunately, animation has expanded the age range of its audience, so that now the choice of adult animated series is not limited to “The Simpsons.” Whether you’re looking for a series that meets your adult needs, classic cartoons from your childhood, or something in between for the whole family, Netflix has it all.
Avatar: The Last Airbender
To the delight of fans, the legendary animated series, which was released on Nickelodeon from 2005 to 2008, appeared on Netflix. Yes, the cartoon-inspired M. Find Shyamalan for a mediocre film adaptation, but if your acquaintance with the franchise was limited to his “Lord of the Elements,” feel free to discard traumatic memories and watch this witty, touching, and exciting cult classic. In the center of the plot is a twelve-year-old boy Aang, who wakes up after a hundred years of suspended animation to fulfill his destiny and achieve world peace.
Total Drama Island
Good news for binge telemans – the world of animation also has something to please you. Island of Desperate Heroes is a cartoon parodying the reality show The Last Hero. If you’re looking for a long animated series, seven seasons of the children’s but truly hilarious “Island…” waiting for you on streaming.
More stellar voice actors and screenwriters than “Big Mouth” are hard to imagine. This series, voiced by Nick Kroll, John Maleney, Maya Rudolph, and Jenny Slate, is written by an equally dazzling galaxy of young talents and mastodons of screenwriting. It is not surprising that the “Big Mouth” was extended for three seasons, not the limit. The sitcom is wonderful in its anxiety, ingenuity, and excitability acquaintance with the wonders and horrors of puberty in the suburbs.
This grown-up black comedy has become something of a new classic. The project, which began as a budding animated series, degenerated into a thoughtful study of mental health and Hollywood. The cartoon, the heroes of mainly anthropomorphic animals, has a very insightful view of the human experience.
Tuca & Bertie
Unfortunately, “Tuku and Bertie” — a new masterpiece from the creators of “BoJack’s Horse” — closed after the first season. Still, this adult sitcom about a touching friendship between two thirty-year-old birds, voiced by our favorite comedians Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong, is definitely worth a look.
F is for Family
The series “F means family” is largely based on the life of stand-up car Bill Burr in the seventies. As the name hints, the cartoon is distinguished by the trademark humor of the comedian known for his political incorrectness.
The Midnight Gospel
The bad news: if you were thinking of recording an apocalypse podcast, the idea has already been stolen. The good news: now you don’t have to write it down. Midnight Sermon is the brainchild of Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward and comedian and podcast host Duncan Trussell. This series, which tells the story of a young “spacecaster” who travels the universe to have philosophical conversations with other forms of life, is as psychedelic and introspective as one might expect from an animated podcast.
A medieval sitcom from The Simpsons and Futurama producer Matt Graning follows rebel Bean voiced by Abby Jacobson of Broad City and her life in the kingdom of Dreamland. Alcoholic Princess Bean explores the world of fantasy in the company of personal elf Elfo and personal demon Lucik.
Retsuko, the heroine of this anime series from Hello Kitty, is a red panda who is an accountant in a trading company. After shooting in the office, she goes straight to the local karaoke. Her favorite music genre? Death metal, of course. Speaking of work routine – episodes of the cartoon last for ten to fifteen minutes and represent a perfect respite at a distance.
