List of adult animated television series

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of adult animated television series (including web television series); that is, animated programs that are mainly targeted towards adults aged 18–34.[citation needed] Mature animation is comparatively rare in North America and Europe, as animated series are culturally expected to be created for children.[citation needed] This list does not include Japanese, Chinese, or Korean series, as mature animation is much more common in these regions.[original research?]
