Netflix has no shortage of excellent animated movies and television shows available on the streaming service. But as most animation fans know, there are many different styles to enjoy, including anime, CGI creations and hand-drawn animated shows. Below we’ll be showing our love to some of the best animated shows on Netflix, including hits like BoJack Horseman, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power and more underrated gems like Hilda and Inside Job.
Animation isn’t just for kids, as fans know, and our list represents a mixture of series that range from more kid-friendly to edgier, adult fare such as Big Mouth and its spinoff Human Resources.
If you’re a fan of animation, you’ll definitely want to ensure that every show on this list is on your Netflix watchlist, whether it’s your first-time watch or you’re planning a rewatch! Let’s start with one of my personal favorite animated series on Netflix, and, in general, one of my favorite shows of all time.
BoJack Horseman is one of the best television shows ever, argue with the wall. No, but seriously, that show helped me grapple with my depression in ways I’ve never experienced with another television show (except Tuca & Bertie, which is fitting and more on that soon).
Not only was it intelligent and filled with vibrant animation, clever in-jokes and lots of celebrity cameos, but BoJack was funny while also excellent at handling serious topics. Besides featuring countless freeze-frame bonuses and hilarity, BoJack tackled the hard stuff, too, like self-loathing, addiction, self-esteem, anxiety and so much more.
In many ways, this show was able to discuss topics that other sitcoms didn’t even dare approach, and BoJack did it with finesse. It also helps that the voice cast was excellent, the show was super quotable, it was filled with dark humor and ultimately, it was just super watchable and filled with enough quick jokes and blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moments that make it feel fresh every time you rewatch it.
