Nerd Fight Poll: What is the Best Cartoon Series?
Hello all you Geek Enthusiasts and Nerd Aficionados!
We are back with another Nerd Fight for this week. The last two weeks saw the fight for the best Comic-Con fandom. It was a tight race between Marvel and Supernatural fans up untill the end. Check out the article by Mest5150 to see who won in the end! A lot of wonderful discussions were had with voters over the last week. So, thanks to everyone who came out and participated, you made the week a lot of fun.
This week we are jumping into the world of beloved cartoon series. So many wonderful classics to choose from. It was really hard to narrow it down to one apiece. But, let’s see who stacks up against each other. Remember, the new Nerd Fight will last for 2 weeks.
Phineas and Ferb:
Phineas Flynn and his stepbrother, Ferb Fletcher, are determined to make every day of their summer vacation fun. Their family pet, Perry the Platypus, doubles as a secret agent and battles evil. For this fact alone they should win. It’s a clever show, and very entertaining to watch.
Accidentally frozen, pizza-deliverer Philip J. Fry wakes up 1,000 years in the future. He is taken in by his sole descendant, an elderly and addled scientist who owns a small cargo delivery service Planet Express. How do you hate this show? Funny as hell, characters you could relate to, and a plot that went beyond a 1 episode arc. I sure do miss it.
The show revolves around four boys—Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick—and their bizarre adventures in and around the titular Colorado town. What can i say, it’s rude and crude at times, but brilliant in its use of satire. No one is safe from being mocked by the characters of South Park.
Blending wit, slapstick and pop culture references, the variety show “Animaniacs” features a large cast of characters, whose predominant personalities are the Warner brothers, Yakko and Wakko, and their sister, Dot. It brought to life characters like Chicken Boo, Pinky and the brain, Elmira and Slappy Squirrel. It also made learning geography way more fun then studying a map.
One of the long running animated comedies focuses on the eponymous family in the town of Springfield in an unnamed U.S. state. It has a colorful cast of characters as well as countless celebrity cameos. It’s funny, and crude, but throws in enough heart to keep it grounded.
Rick and Morty:
After having been missing for nearly 20 years, Rick Sanchez suddenly arrives at daughter Beth’s doorstep to move in with her and her family. He ends up running a Lab out of the garage, and taking his grandchildren, Morty and Summer on adventures across the universe. This show is definitely unique and appeals to your inner sci fi geek.
Thundarr the Barbarian:
