15 Cartoons That Were Too Mature For Us As Kids (But We Watched Anyway)

MTV / Comedy Central

Not all cartoons that we grew up with were necessarily intended for kids! Once 9 PM rolled around, networks like MTV, Cartoon Network, and even Fox would air shows that, while animated, definitely tended towards much more "adult" subject matter. We weren't supposed to be up late enough to watch, but these 15 shows were so good it meant we defied our parents and watched them anyway.

1) The Simpsons

2) Futurama

3) Duckman

4) King of the Hill

5) Undergrads

6) Beavis And Butt-Head
