What is your favourite cartoon out of the 3 listed. I love them all but if i had to pick it would be Futurama.
I really like the Simpsons... Especially Homer...
â€śThree Legions of Marines stand to defend you, sire. All of us will unflinchingly place ourselves between you and the warâ€™s desolation. We are the greatest humans ever born â€“ we are the flame of Humanity where the rest of the galaxy is just the spark. In centuries of warfare, against the vileness of the alien, the lies of the heretic, the foulness of the mutant, I have never known fear â€“ but your silence terrifies me.â€?

Arghhhh what sort of a poll is this. How am I supposed to choose? I will go with Family Guy, but it was a close run thing.

A toss up between Famely guy and Futurama. Simpsons have lost their zing over the years, but still a funny show. Famely guy and futurama still have the freshness to be hystaricle nearly every eppisode. :rofl:
futurama is finished you know?? family guy is brill because i havent seen them all.

all great shows, but comeon, i grew up on the simpsons, no contest.
Take my words with a grain of salt, i am not the tactical genius i think i am!
Family Guy far and above the others. I have probably seen every run of it but it still seems to make me laugh until it hurts. The characters are new and we haven't explored every facet of their existance yet as we have in the Simpsons. Delightful character design when looking at Stewie, Brian and the host of neighbors/friends like Quagmire or the EXTREMELY creepy, toothless old pediphile walking around in a bath robe with the help of a walker. One could draw parallels to the Simpsons such as: the stupid, alcoholic yet morally great father -- the hyper, semi-attractive but has a crazy woman side wife -- the self concious, worrysome, budding daughter -- the boy becoming a man, good natured but silly mannered son. One can even go furthur and note the usually hysterical "news anchor/s" on the tv bit.
Family Guy took some of the popular aspects of the Simpsons recipe and turned it around with a whole new cast and world to explore. They went even furthur and created their own characters who, just as in the Simpsons, the viewer can relate to.
I feel that Family Guy is quite close to a natural extension of the Simpsons. Another family, more disfunction, way more racey humor/pokes, GREAT voice acting, great animation, smooth but perhaps a little more real as far as colors and shapes. Simpsons introduced the genre, but I think Family Guy is carrying on the torch and very well I might add. I used to watch a good amount of tv, then slacked off lately. But Family Guy has renewed my faith in some tv programming, and I can't wait for the new seasons.
As far as longevity, with the news of new seasons coming, I think Family Guy is shaping up for a good decade or more of viewing. Popularity of Family Guy on a programming like Adult Swim is huge, if not the most popular. With such a montage of incredible animation on the screen during Adult Swim, it feels like a new era of television, much like an old variety hour from the 60's/70's.
Simpsons was great and still is high quality funny, but I think they have really run out of places to go with stories/jokes/one-liners. If I was at the brainstorming table for writing on the Simpsons, I think I'd just tear my hair out trying to think of a new episode/topic that hasn't been touched at all. Occasionally I will watch an episode and they usually have great stories, especially Halloween specials, but the amount of sheer laughter I get from Family Guy is just too good to pass up. Luckily it is physically possible to watch both given their time slots on different networks. I've found Family Guy will go places Simpsons wouldn't dare though, leading to big funny through shock value aka "Did he just really say that? wow". Favorite character though would be the comic store owner, I can't stop laughing because it so true and I'm sure a fair share of us are/or know that guy. Long hair, big fat guy, unshaven, trekkie, talks fast and in a superior dork 9000 fashion, "Best. Episode. Ever? Hello?" <rolls eyes>. Whatever drink I have immediately exits my nose on that one.
Futurama is kind of an odd bird. More fast paced than Simpsons humor, the newer characters and fresh stories made it a very good show for when it first aired. Its still a good show and usually has the tried and true deep underlying moral, spiked with weird funny. A good application of the Simpsons style of animation, which I find is very high quality stuff as far as viewing pleasure. Smooth and colorful, never really dull, very rubbery/plastic cartoony, bright, fast but can follow with the eyes. Also the classic celebrity guest voice over's can make for some good stuff (ie talking heads in jars). It seems to push the edge past Simpsons as far as racey humor, which a younger generation is going to favor. Some of the one-liners can get quite tiresome though. Zap Brannigan and Kif absolutely slay me though as far as laughing out loud. They'll get quoted at the gaming table for sure when playing against SM/IG.
All three would get watched if I was in the mood for tv, but Family Guy wins top seat in my mind.
Family Guy by far! The Petoria episode is great! ^_^

I gotta go with Futurama. Simpsons was/is/and will be great, but it hasn't grown at all in what, 13 years? Futurama had the potential to be just as prolific as the Simpsons, if not more so, since each season grew in diversity. It's a shame that Fox cut it off at the heels.
And what about other American cartoons like Megas XLR, Fairly OddParents, and Venture Brothers?
