TV Guide Magazine's 60 Greatest Cartoons of All Time

The Simpsons

Of all the fantastical things TV brings into our lives, nothing indulges the imagination quite like cartoons. Whether timely (South Park) or timeless (Looney Tunes), animation can truly take us anywhere. The rules — and the budgets — of conventional television don't apply. In short, we just can't help being drawn to them. In honor of TV Guide Magazine's 60th anniversary, we present our list of the best and, often quite literally, the brightest:

Wednesday TV Review: ABC's Unwelcome Neighbors, Resolving SVU, CSI Cliffhangers

Lenny Venito and Jami Gertz

E.T.s, go home! Less out-of-this-world than out of its league, ABC's The Neighbors (9:31/8:31c) stands out on the network's celebrated Wednesday comedy lineup like a wart on a hand model. Cheerfully ridiculous and unapologetically moronic, this aliens-among-us sitcom follows a long and mostly proudly silly TV tradition that includes Mork & Mindy, ALF and 3rd Rock From the Sun. Nothing wrong with a goofy guilty pleasure in the right circumstances and if blessed with the genius of a John Lithgow or a Robin Williams — or an ALF. read more

Wednesday TV in Review: Worst Friends Ever, Finales of Bent, Happy Endings

Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair

You know how Ellis, the smarmy assistant-from-hell on Smash, has become the most reviled character on TV this season? That's only because most people haven't been subjected yet to Best Friends Forever, the poisonous new sitcom NBC is launching tonight (8:30/7:30c) in the deep, deep rabbit hole of its woeful Wednesday night lineup — which has already claimed the much more enjoyable (though virtually invisible) Bent, ending its run tonight (9/8c) after only three weeks of back-to-back episodes.
