35. Adult Swim

If you're not into anime or old Hanna-Barbera joints, then the Cartoon Network seemed to be much ado about nothing- until the freakshows at Williams Street Productions expanded on their Space Ghost re-fix to birth the Adult Swim lineup. From The Brak Show, to Sealab 2021 and Aqua Teen Hunger Force to newer offerings like Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, the programming block (now its own network) redefined what "cartoons" could be: hilarious, bizarre, and filthy.

You have Adult Swim to thank for 2005's MF Doom/Dangermouse collab album, The Mouse and the Mask. What, you thought Meatwad and Carl made cameos for no reason at all?
