If you’re late to the party, this fan-favorite centers around the eccentric Smith family — Jerry (Chris Parnell) and Beth (Sara Chalke), their two kids, Summer (Spencer Grammer) and Morty (Harry Belden), and Beth’s father, Rick (Ian Cardoni).

In a nondescript New England beach town, Bob Belcher (H. John Benjamin) and his family live in a tiny apartment above their small family restaurant, Bob’s Burgers. Bob and his wife, Linda (John Roberts), and their three kids, Tina (Dan Mintz), Gene (Eugene Mirman), and Louise (Kristen Schaal), aren’t fancy.

3. The Simpsons

Title art for the classic adult animated sitcom, The Simpsons.

Known for potentially predicting many of the major events in recent history, the Golden Globe-winning series, The Simpsons, is one of the longest-running TV shows ever, with an astounding 35 seasons and counting. 

Why has this adult animated comedy lasted so long? Our guess is the show’s satirical take on the average American family, current events, and pop culture. 

While Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and baby Maggie are a bit on the dysfunctional side, the show centers around their love for each other and the connections they make in Springfield, the small town they call home.
