A large part of the appeal of television is that it helps you to escape from your everyday life. When the hustle and bustle of your tedious 9 to 5 job gets to be too much, just turn on the boob tube and relax with familiar faces and repetitive plot lines. And when it comes to escapism, few do it better than a cartoon can. I know, I know. Cartoons? But those are for children! Adults can’t watch cartoons, they can only watch shows where someone with supernatural abilities helps a cop solve crimes, and nothing else!

Well that’s baloney. Cartoons have always been a medium to be enjoyed by humans of all ages, and there’s no reason you can’t sit down and enjoy some animated fun just because you’re old enough to drink, or drive a car or because you enjoy drinking prune juice instead of apple juice (as I assume all people over 50 do).

So, now that we have that out of the way, here’s our top ten list of the best cartoons that EVERYONE can enjoy. Please note that I have narrowed this list down to cartoons that are at least relatively kid friendly, and that have been aired in the last 10 or so years.

There’s an urban legend that goes on about how the number 23 is a mystical number. For example, the digits of the number added together create five, which is the opposite amount of stars that The Number 23 deserves. Happy normal dude Walter (Jim Carrey) goes off the deep end after reading a book called The Number 23. He begins to think that the book – a story of a man who murdered a woman – is about him, so he flees his family, locks himself in a hotel room and goes Se7en all over the walls, refusing to be reasoned with.

Comics are a truly wonderful medium. You get beautiful artwork combined with amazing and exciting stories full of rich characters. Unlike the movies, the breadth of the story isn’t determined by numbers and budgets, but by the writers imagination and the skill of the artist. Still, you have to admit, there’s just something appealing about seeing a character portrayed by a real live person on a really huge screen.
