Netflix is home to some of the most raunchy, gut-busting, hard-hitting adult animation out there. That’s old news. But which one of Netflix’s original animated offerings is the most popular amongst adult animation fans? More importantly, which series should you be bingeing right now?
Luckily, here at FANDOM, we have the largest collection of fan data in the entire world. So, we can definitively tell you which series is truly the best of the best, based on cold hard data. Looking at the total number of wiki page views, here are all of Netflix’s original adult animated series ranked from least to most popular.
#7 – SUPER DRAGS
In a very undeserving last place comes a brand new series fresh from Brazil — Super Drags. This quirky cartoon follows the lives of three gay co-workers who moonlight as superhero drag queens fighting the terrible forces of shade.
Netflix released this fierce series earlier this month to mixed reviews. It’s relatively new on the scene, so that could explain its shockingly low ranking. Super Drags deserves better than last place.
This fabulous cartoon is stuffed with sassy queer commentary and we are here for it. If you like Drag Race or Queer Eye, you should definitely try this show on for size. (Drag Race fans might even recognize the familiar voices of Shangela and Trixie Mattel.) Super Drags has some pretty great Powerpuff Girls vibes, but don’t let that fool you. It’s 100% not suitable for children.
#6 – PACIFIC HEAT
Pacific Heat, an Australian animated cop show, centers on an undercover and underqualified police unit, tasked with toppling drug dealers and international terrorists. It’s basically an unfunny version of Archer from down under.
Pacific Heat has been on the beat for a couple of years now, so it’s safe to assume it ranks so low because it’s just not good. There’s no way of sugar-coating it. Pacific Heat is riddled with thin plots, inconsequential characters, and flat humor. No #FOMO here. Skip over this one. Or better yet, watch Archer instead.
#5 – PARADISE PD
Brickleberry fans will appreciate this next one. Coming in fifth place, yet another animated cop show, Paradise PD. It’s almost as if Netflix ordered this series to make up for the preceding pick because everything Pacific Heat does wrong Paradise PD does oh, so right.
Paradise PD’s stellar voice cast sets this series apart from the competition. Performances by Scrubs alum Sarah Chalke, Reno 911 alum Cedric Yarbrough, and SpongeBob SquarePants himself, Tom Kenny really stand out. They will make you laugh until you cry, and groan and scream.
This series is also fairly new, so maybe after a couple of seasons, its ranking will reflect its sheer brilliance. This show is equal parts absurd and hilarious, a recipe for great comedy. If you were a fan of Reno 911 or The State, then this show is definitely for you.
#4 – F IS FOR FAMILY
F is for Family secures its spot in the middle of the pack. This dark comedy turns the middle-American sitcom genre on its head. We dare you not to laugh at this beautifully crude portrayal of a remarkably dysfunctional family.
Perhaps it would be more popular if it were more unique. F is for Family almost feels like an off-color King of the Hill or Family Guy without its iconic non sequitur moments. Though the premise feels familiar, it goes much further than these network shows. We’re talking Newgrounds level vulgarity and violence.
#3 – DISENCHANTMENT
We’re not shocked that the newest series to come from animation royalty, Matt Groening, ranked third. Disenchantment premiered a few months back and received polarizing reviews. Like marmite, you either love it or hate it.
Disenchantment has been described as Futurama set in fantasy land, but it’s so much more. That being said, it’s hard to ignore the striking similarities between the two shows. They both use a lot of the same tropes, gags, and voice actors. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. If you were a huge fan of The Simpsons and Futurama, then you will love this one.
#2 – BIG MOUTH
We highly recommend watching Big Mouth with subtitles because you will not be able to hear everything over the sound of your unending laughter. Comedy legends Jordan Peele, Maya Rudolph, and Will Arnett, to name a few, lend their voices to a star-studded cast. It’s currently in its sophomore season on Netflix, which has earned the series a coveted 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. If you haven’t already seen Big Mouth, watch it immediately.
#1 – BOJACK HORSEMAN
It’s no surprise that Netflix’s flagship adult animated series comes in first place with over 3M wiki page views. Bojack Horseman is currently in its fifth season, and like fine wine, the show keeps getting better over the years.
Bojack Horseman chronicles the life of a washed-up Hollywood celebrity who goes through a personal renaissance while battling addiction and a myriad of mental health issues. You wouldn’t immediately peg that plot description as comedy, but Bojack is so funny it hurts.
Bojack Horseman is more than one of the best animated series out there, it is one of the best pieces of television, period. The absolutely brilliant risks taken by the creative team completely pay off time and time again. This show is disrupting modern storytelling as we know it. One could argue that Bojack‘s tenure on Netflix puts the series at the top of this list, over other very deserving shows. However, in this writer’s opinion, Bojack Horseman truly is the best of the best.
