Axe Cop

Axe Cop is a show about a cop who finds the perfect axe, and becomes Axe Cop. He is literally the toughest superhero in existence, and gets by on just two minutes of sleep a night and a diet of birthday cake.

Mr. Pickles

If you are into how disturbing and fucked up Rick and Morty can be, then this is definilety the show for you. Mr. Pickles is definitely one of the most fucked up shows out there. The show is about the Goodman families satanic border collie Mr.Pickles. 6 year old Tommy usually goes around town with his beloved dog, having fun, unaware of Mr. Pickles evilness except for his grandfather. Mr. Pickles is as evil as it gets, always slipping away to kill, torture, mutilate, and have sex with his victims, and always returns without no one ever knowing his crimes.

Adventure Time

I know what your thinking. Why is a kids cartoon show on a list that contains satanic dogs, and drug loving scientist. Well these days Adventure Time has become less and less kid friendly. In the beginning the show seemed to just be a silly cartoon about a boy named Finns adventures in the land of Ooo with his best friend Jake ( who just happens to be a magic dog). But as the series continued, it was revealed that the world of Adventure Time was actually Earth, just a dystopian version of it. The characters also go through these very noticeable changes. Finn goes from happy fun loving boy, to being depressed and somewhat jaded, and Jake the wacky dog becomes a true nihilist. There was even an episode in which the writers slipped in a sexual joke–definitely not kid friendly. By the end of the series, the show had become a dark nihilistic show worthy of Adult Swim. Because hey everyone has to grow up, and the show and its characters both did.

Mike Tyson Mysteries

Mike Tyson in this Scooby-doo type animated series is one of those things that you didn’t know you needed until you got it. The show stars boxing legend Mike Tyson, his adoptive teenage daughter Yung Hee, a sex addict/ alcoholic pigeon, and the ghost of the Marquess of Queensberry. The Mystery team goes on some hilarious adventures as they initially try and solve a mystery, get off track, and either solve the mystery or leave them unresolved. The writing for this show is well written, and packed with some funny dialogue and scenes, that will leave you laughing so hard that you’ll forget all about last season of Rick and Morty coming to an end.
