Is adult animation due for a reformation? A lot of current adult animation shows is pretty consistent with the Simpsons/Family Guy formula, and doesn't really seem to stray from it. I know you work more with shows for kids but do you have any suggestions to improve adult animation? Is JG Quintel's new show a sign that adult animation is going to get better? Do you think you'll work in that end of the industry at some point?
I don’t watch much animation made for adult audiences, so I’m probably not the best person to ask… But Rick and Morty, Bob’s Burgers, and BoJack Horseman are a few I’ve seen that I thought were really good.
I do get the feeling most “adult” animation, with the exception of the Simpsons and the shows I mentioned above, is mainly raunchy animation written by guys. Rick and Morty is gross–but it’s also smart. That’s appealing!
So I dunno. More women making adult animated shows could be good. Also more smart, genuine stories couldn’t hurt either.
