I like Family Guy! But since it's just a copy of The Simpsons, I'll go with South Park =P

I like King of the Hill, and the Simpsons. The Simpsons movie is funny, and I saw this King of the Kill episode where someone trades in their kiddney to a 10-year-old boy who needs it, but instead of trading for $43,000, he trades it for a bunch of kiddy toys :lol: .

Tie between the classic Simpsons episodes (up until around Season 13) and Futurama for me. Family Guy got old, and the gags on the Simpsons started going downhill, personally.

King of the Hill I never found funny, to be honest. Same with American Dad. South Park can be alright on occasions, but I've only seen a few episodes.

I agree with you there, the old Simpson episodes are the good ones. Futurama's pretty good, and South Park can be at times, but American Dad is just stupid. Family Guy is funny in the "I don't want to think, I just want to see ridiculous things" kind of way.

King of the Hill is not as funny most of the time, but I could watch King of the Hill longer than I could watch any of these other shows.

Oh man definitely The Simpsons.

I'll literally sit there when I've got nothing to do, and pop in one of my 10 Simpson seasons, and watch the whole thing.

I know, I'm lame, but I knows what I like. 8-)

Futurama is the best! Some of the jokes, most people wouldn't get, though. If you have it on DVD, try changing the language. Spanish Leela has a very deep voice, and Portugese (I think) Professor Farnsworth sounds kind of like Bender.

Well, I used to love the simpsons, but indeed the series simply isn't as good as it used to be. There are some really funny episodes occasionally, but lately most of the gags are not even laughable. But the movie was brilliant.
Futturama is really good though. Has anyone else here seen 'Bender's Big Score'? Hilarious.
Now, family guy is hilarious, although i'll admit the humour isn't particularly intelligent. But it never fails to give me a good laugh.
American Dad is...ok I guess, but not as good as the others.
King of the Hill I don't find very funny, and the kid has an annoying voice.
South Park can be absolutely hilarious, but sometimes it's just ridiculous and/or disturbing. Gay alien sex? Seriously, no-one wants to see that, it's not funny it's just.....guh *shudders*
Did I miss anything? Oh well, all in all I don't really have a favourite.

I hate the new Simpson's voices in the Latin American dub.
They're just imitators :evil:

Ah, I wondered how they voiced foreign cartoons! So they just have completely random people read their lines in whatever language they're broadcasting, and they suck?

I'm... sorry. :(

Actually... no... Dubbing houses try the best to find voice actors for the characters. The Simpsons producers even went to the dubbing house to cast people, so basically they were chosen by the original creators.

The full story is this one:
The original dubb was done by the dubbing house Audiomaster 3000; when it closed the dubbing was held to be worked by Grabaciones y Doblajes Internacionales, that still used the same voice actors (different company, same people) and which is affiliated to the ANDA (National Actors Association by its spanish acronym). A contract with the ANDA stipulated that only voice actors affiliated to it (ANDA) could be hired by Grabaciones y Doblajes Internacionales. Before Season 16 of The Simpsons, GyDI broke the contract and couldn't get with a solution with the ANDA. So the original voice actors were fired (since they were affiliated to the ANDA) and new ones were hired.

Actually, Humberto Vélez (Homer's original voice) and Gabriel Chávez (Burns' original) started a boicot against the new dubb. They got it to the point they were told they were going to dubb the movie, which sadly, didn't happen.

Not a full list but this is the dubb actors of the Simpson Family:
* Homer Simpson: Humberto Vélez (seasons 1 to 15) / Otto Balbuena (since season 16).
* Marge Simpson: Nancy McKenzie (seasons 1 to 15) / Marina Huerta (since season 16).
* Bart Simpson: Marina Huerta (seasons 1 to 9, the again since 16) / Claudia Mota (seasons 9 to 15).
* Lisa Simpson: Patricia Acevedo (seasons 1 to 15) / Alexia Solís (since season 16).

Here's a video comparison, of course, you wouldn't get it if you don't listen to the spanish dub all the time xD

I never liked King of the Hill that much. Not cartoony enough. Too much dialog, not enough visual gags.

I noticed that after the Simpsons movie they went back to the humor style that they had back in the earlier episodes. Bart became mischeivious again, and the stories became focused on Bart and his friends instead of the spotlight being on Homer the whole time.
