Animation has been experiencing a historic era in recent years. Despite being viewed as a format for children in the last century, as the years have passed and series like The Simpsons have achieved global success, this perception has completely changed. In fact, it has now become more common to see adult-oriented animated series on platforms rather than exclusive content for children.

But what is the best animated series of all time? Obviously, this is highly subjective, but by combining the overall ratings from the world’s leading review aggregators, we can agree that there is one series that surpasses the rest… and it’s from Netflix: Bojack Horseman.

Bojack Horseman exceeds all expectations

Bojack Horseman is a six-season series that aired on Netflix from 2014 to 2020. Since the platform’s worldwide popularity, it has been one of Netflix‘s hallmarks of quality. Despite its conclusion, it continues to be one of the most-watched series, serving as a perfect example of this new animated era.

Although series like Matt Groening’s The Simpsons or Futurama were the most-followed worldwide during the late 20th and early 21st centuries, Bojack Horseman has won the hearts of critics. And rightfully so, as it boasts a 93% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes (96% audience score) and an 82 on Metacritic (9.1 user score).

The series revolves around BoJack Horseman (Will Arnett), the former star of the 1990s sitcom Horsin’ Around. Set in a world where anthropomorphic animals coexist with humans, BoJack Horseman embarks on a journey to reclaim his former glory after years of depression. He teams up with a ghostwriter, Diane Nguyen (Alison Brie), to work on his autobiography.

BoJack Horseman is widely regarded as one of the best portrayals of depression, fame, and nostalgia in recent years. Despite being categorized as a comedy, the series delves into such deep emotional themes that many episodes can leave you in tears or even emotionally affected. This is the secret behind BoJack Horseman’s status as one of the greatest series of all time.
