At one time, you’d be forgiven for thinking they’re just cartoons, but today, more than ever, animation is a ripe medium for satire. Today, meet the courageous creators, hard-working headwriters, and sleepless showrunners of today’s biggest animated comedy series. Discover the circumstances that led to your favorite show getting the green light, how the strong voices in front of the microphone and behind-the-scenes make these shows come to life, and how these shows break new ground, take no prisoners, and get away with their characters saying pretty much whatever they want.
