Best-Reviewed Animated Series 2020

With the big streamers throwing plenty of cash around, some of the biggest names in recent adult-targeted animation released new series this year: Bob’s Burgers creator Loren Bouchard put out Central Park on Apple TV+, Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland gave us Solar Opposites on HBO Max, and Adventure Time’s Pendleton Ward co-created The Midnight Gospel for Netflix. All were hits with critics and make our list below. But it was season 4 of Netflix’s Big Mouth, the no-holds-barred dive into the horrors of puberty, that critics loved most, followed by DC Universe’s playful and excellent Harley Quinn in its second season.

The order of the rank below reflects the Adjusted Score as of December 31, 2020. Scores might change over time.

Big Mouth: Season 4 (2020)
100%

#2
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Harley Quinn maintains its frenetic energy and humor while doubling down on the shenanigans and giving its titular anti-heroine even more room to play.

#3
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: With warmth, wit, and a pitch perfect ensemble, Central Park is a joyously hilarious musical love letter to the Big Apple.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Charming, hilarious, and surprisingly sincere, Solar Opposites revels in the ridiculousness of life while finding a few fresh things to say about humanity along the way.
Directed By: Josh Bycel

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Midnight Gospel's strange brew won't be for all tastes, but those willing to drink deep will find a wealth of vibrant visuals and illuminating insights.
