1. Aqua Teen Hunger Force
Aqua Teen Hunger Force is another show that airs on Adult Swim, just like Rick & Morty.

The trio lives and goes on adventures together, despite their differing personalities. Master Shake is a pathological liar who is selfish, Frylock is intelligent and level-headed and Meatwad is simple-minded and not very bright. For some serious laughs, this is the show for you!
Squidbillies has been on television since 2005 with an eleventh season premiere scheduled for summer 2017. The show is about a family of poor hillbilly squids who live in a muddy area found in the Georgia Blue Ridge Mountains.

This is the perfect comic animated show to binge watch, offering 104 episodes with more on the way!

I’ve never seen Rick and Morty, but I’m taking the grandkids to the beach next week and this looks like a good show to watch together. We’ll definitely check out the other shows as well.
My husband actually likes all of these shows lol! My favorites are more along the lines of Bob’s Burgers and South Park!
I am not a big fan of animated tv shows, with that being said my adult children think they are wonderful. Age gap here big time. Sure they would enjoy watching these if they already haven’t.
When I was a kid, I love to watch animated and cartoon shows and I must say until now. haha! It’s a stress reliever for me.
Do you know I haven’t watched any of these, I might have to give them a whirl as we are always looking for new things to try.
I watch a lot of these shows with my husband. We really love Rick and Morty! We also enjoy Squidbillies and Robot Chicken. So funny!
Our teenage daughter watches most of these. She has always been a major fan of animation and this type of humor.
My kids love Gravity Falls. They can watch any episode over and over again.
I Love Gravity Falls! And Aqua Teen Hunger Force has always been a favorite. I’m so glad it’s still around! I had no idea!
I love Rick and Morty!! I actually haven’t seen any of these other shows, do you know if they air in Australia?
I don’t have any kids in my household, so I can’t say that I have ever watched any of these. However, they all sound good. I might just check them out for the fun of it.

These seem to be all funny shows. I will have to share these with other family members I know will like them because I don’t have cable. Thanks for sharing these funny shows
I never heard of these shows. My nephew is 12 I am sure he watches Rick and Morty and a few other the shows listed.
My son watches and loves all of these shows (Rick and Morty is his current favorite) but I’ve never seen them myself. I might just have to spend some time with him this next weekend and see what I think of them!
All my kids are teenagers now but I’m sur they would still get a kick out of these shows.
