Talk about the Simpson it's difficult. They have been active for too many years (more than 30) with a level that borders on perfection, especially during its first seasons on the air. The fact is that The Simpsons will always be a series that will remain in the memory of several generations, having forged its humor with phrases and mythical moments of which we have appropriated, incorporated in many cases into our vocabulary.


The Simpsons are inimitable, but here are some very interesting alternatives


We can currently see The Simpsons only its Disney+, so, if you are not a mouse subscriber, it is normal that you are looking for heavy alternatives on platforms like Netflix. So, we've decided to compile some Simpsons-like adult animation series that you'll most likely enjoy.

Netflix: the series closest to The Simpsons

In total, you will find the 8 best Netflix animated comedies, all with enough humor similar to I Simpson, in part thanks to the sheer amount of social criticism they contain and some completely disgusting characters. To disorder!

  • South park
  • Rick and Morty
  • The Griffins
  • BoJack Horseman
  • (Disenchantment
  • F as a family
  • Big mouth
  • Current stories

South park

Impossible not to mention South Park, a series that despite having a more scatological and coarse beginning in its last seasons has one sour criticism un a little more refined (it has always been a very critical and ironic series) that reminds us of the most mythical episodes of the Simpsons. This series, the work of Matt Stone and Trey Parker along with South Park Studios, has been in business for more than 20 years and is one of the few that can watch FOX you to you. On Netflix Spain it is not complete, but we can see many of its best episodes.



  • Year: 1997
  • Available seasons: 23 (seasons 1, 20, 21 and 22 in full. From 2 to 19 with skipped episodes)
  • Episodes available: 53
  • Approximate duration: 22 minutes

Rick and Morty

Rick & Morty is one of the best animated series of the last decade and we can fearlessly say that it has dethroned the Simpsons in popularity and relevance. His overly violent humor and the exploration of topics related to physics, parallel universes and other scientific theories completely blur the limits of the series, being able to treat - literally - any topic. Of course, it's one of those series that you have to recommend to everyone and at the moment we have offered you some alternatives to Rick and Morty on HBO.

  • Year 2013
  • Seasons: 4
  • Episodes available: 41
  • Approximate duration: 20 minutes

The Griffins

Impossible to think of the Simpsons clones and not to mention the Family Guy. This Seth MacFarlane series was born as adult alternative to some Simpsons who were losing more and more la their essence to the point that we could say that Groening's work ended up borrowing some ideas or narrative mechanics from Family Guy. With gross, unpleasant, and sometimes straightforward humor, Family Guy is a fun and entertaining product for anyone looking for an animated series for adults.

  • Year: 1999
  • Available seasons: 19 (12 to 18 on Netflix Spain)
  • Episodes available: 140
  • Approximate duration: 22 minutes

BoJack Horseman

BoJack Horseman it is a particular series that goes a long way from previous recommendations. This series of entertainment for adults tells us about the life of a former star who wants to return in style. Will he succeed? The road, of course, will not be easy. If you are in that moment of your life when you are a little lost and discouraged, this series is the most suitable, or maybe not.



  • Year 2014
  • Seasons: 6
  • Episodes available: 77
  • Approximate duration: 26 minutes

(Disenchantment

(Dis) charm is one of the series that has more to do with The Simpsons, mainly because it also comes from the mind of Matt Groening. However, although the humor is very similar, the plot has little or nothing to do with that of the yellow family, since (Dis) the charm takes place in a fictional fantasy world full of medieval references.


  • Year: 2018
  • Seasons: 3
  • Episodes: 30
  • Approximate duration: 26 minutes

F as a family

F is for Family si concentra su a dysfunctional family or more than that formed by Homer, Marge and children. Of course, in the case of F is for Family, the action takes place in the Pennsylvania of the years so much, a time when children played unattended, beer was cheap and television was a mantra. More or less like now ...

  • Year: 2015
  • Seasons: 4
  • Episodes: 36
  • Approximate duration: 30 minutes

Big mouth

We are perhaps facing one of the most peculiar titles on this list of alternatives to the Simpsons. While comedy is assured in Big Mouth, you should know that the series focuses mostly on like puberty makes its way between a group of friends. The transition to adolescence is a hormone festival and Big Mouth is responsible for representing it in the world as graphic as possible.


  • Year: 2017
  • Seasons: 4
  • Episodes: 41
  • Approximate duration: 27 minutes

Current stories

Current Stories retrieves the whitest humor of the Simpsons to set up short episodes between two true colleagues. Mordecai and Rigby are two young friends who have a series of crazy adventures at work in the park. A hilarious and unpretentious series that will be very easy to immerse yourself in.

  • Year: 2017
  • Seasons: 8 (6 to 8 available on Netflix Spain)
  • Episodes: 92
  • Approximate duration: 11 minutes
