Chances are, most Americans are at least aware of uber-popular animated series such as Family Guy, American Dad, and King of the Hill. If you find any of those three shows to be bizarre and over-the-top, then you have not yet experienced some of the previous and current animated shows on Adult Swim. From talking asses (yes, actual human asses) to alcoholic and hard partying mice, Adult Swim features some of the strangest and most creepy animated comedy shows ever to grace and pollute cable television.

Just what kind of warped imagination does it take in order for one to become a writer for an Adult Swim series? I believe that that question simply can not be answered, however I can’t wait to see what kind of crazy and morbidly amusing show those crazy and delightful folks come up with next.
