Western cartoons are funny , and every year, the American animated movies hoisting Oscars over their heads are the ones consumed by kids and marketed for families and designed to make everyone laugh and feel good about themselves and their anthropomorphized feelings. TV shows?

BoJack Horseman and Archer have proven that jaded comedies could still have a lot of heart. Series like Amazon's Undone find creative ways to illustrate challenges to mental health.
