You know the 2D portions of Kung Fu Panda? That's what Samurai Jack looks like.

Hah! You call those recommendations. Obviously Swat Kats!

Anypony else I missed?...
I'd like to discover cartoons that I can find easily on YouTube, or tv, but not Boomerang. I'd prefer nothing that is really well known, or popular.

I like a cute, funny cartoon, with colorful cartoon animals that would appeal to someone who likes My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, SpongeBob SquarePants, Rocko's Modern Life, and The Amazing World of Gumball.

I'd also like a cartoon in the vein of Invader Zim, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, and Jimmy Two-Shoes. Thanks.:)

The answers are 1123, Michael Jackson, that creepy dog downstairs, infinity, Axl Rose, keeps your pants up, and Nethaniel and Superfly.
So I just finished watching Avatar and legend of korra and I want more!! I finished All of DCAU, 90's marvel cartoons like spiderman, and spectacular spidey and x-men and x-men evolution and star wars clone wars 2003 but my appetite for bad-ass action cartoons with superb writing and animation is insatiable. Help anybody? I'm open to anime too I guess But western animation is preferrable.

Transformers Beast Wars is quite good.

[up][up] Samurai Jack, all the way.

Oh, and both Avatar series are recommended to hell and back, but you've probably all seen them.
[up]Yup avatar's down. So is Samurai Jack. How I wish they'd hurry up with the Samurai jack movie.sad

Sym-Bionic Titan, which is probably the only good western mecha show I've found so far. Well, only somewhat serious mecha show.

It's a crime to like western animation and not have seen Megas XLR.
Can anyone recommend something similar to Daria? It doesn't have to be a cartoon, any form of media will do?
If any form of media will do then the question might be better asked in the Media in General conversation.

Those seem very different from each other and only some of them are western animation. I would suggest taking them to their separate conversations like Top Gear to Live Action TV.

I think the request is for 'works that are similar to any of these, so long as they are Western Animation'.

[up] Correct. It's good to make clear what you enjoy beyond the medium you are in.
So can anyone think of works that are similar to Daria

[up][up] Sadly, I'm not familiar with most of what's on that list, and the works with which I am familiar I cannot think of similar works in animation.

Hmmm, possible exception: Monty Python is maybe sort of vaguely similar sense-of-humour-wise to Rocky and Bullwinkle. Do not presume to question the free-association.

[up] Not familiar with it.

For Daria it might help if you briefly tell us what about it you like.

I recognize only some of those titles. The Simpsons is like Futurama. I can't imagine what western animation is like Top Gear. Do you want a cartoon with cars, contests, British people, or what?

Any interesting experimental type stuff going on in the world of Western Animation that's worth watching? Stuff which isn't kiddy while averting the whole All Adult Animation Is South Park trope?

Don't be the penis.
Actually, on second thought, just look at General Recs.

There are lots of 11-minute cable shows that might come close to what I'm looking for, but most of the ones I know are animated, so I posted here.

I do it all for you.
[up][up] If you really want adult animation that isn't All Adult Animation Is South Park, there's always Coonskin. If you want a show, then Megas XLR is something everybody needs to watch in their lifetime. Some of the stuff on DC Nation right now is really good.
