I don’t watch a lot of television, only two or three hours per week, but I love cartoons. Especially cartoons made for grown-ups, with animated families! They’re hilarious, and so true-to-life! Granted, my father’s not yellow and my mother doesn’t have a four-foot blue beehive hair-do… but the Simpsons, and most other animated families, are pretty realistic. Here’s my list of the eight funniest cartoon families… enjoy!
1. The Simpsons from “the Simpsons”
Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie, even Grandpa and Marge’s sisters, Patty and Selma, make up the Simpsons family. We’d loved watching their weekly animated series for a record-setting 21 seasons. They’re the perfect picture of an average American family in an average American town… but they’re all a little skewed, but somehow endearing for all their faults — Homer’s complete lack of social skills, Marge’s over-the-top sweetness of temper, Bart’s endless stream of pranks, Lisa’s frustrated brilliance, and Maggie’s… well, isn’t she the one who shot Mr. Burns?
