Still sad about ‘BoJack Horseman’ ending? Watch these heartwarming animations
Bojack Horseman was certainly one of the most thought-provoking, deep, and surprisingly sentimental animated drama shows to ever exist, and the series couldn’t have given fans a better and more bittersweet ending. While a lot of people may immediately shrug off animated shows and assume them to be shallow and lighthearted, Bojack Horseman was a clear example that proved people otherwise.
If you were one of those people who underestimated the power of animated shows before watching Bojack Horseman, then we’re here to tell you that there are plenty of other animated shows out there that are just as heartwarming and deep. If you’re still not over the beautiful ending from Bojack Horseman, check out our list of other animated shows we think you should check out that are just as heartwarming here.
Adventure Time (2010-2018)
When Adventure Time first arrived on the cartoon scene on Cartoon Network, it was deemed as nothing but a children’s show. However, anyone who has seen other shows from Cartoon Network before know that while their content is catered towards children, lots of their shows are also enjoyed by adults. And as Adventure Time went on, the series evolved into much mature content with more complex matters.
While the entire series is pretty much G-rated, much of the Adventure Time fanbase is made up of young adults, and for good reason too. While the show still keeps a lighthearted tone, Adventure Time also at times tackle much deeper themes such as philosophy, life and death, and other more mature content. We also have to add that there were plenty of moments in the show that have made us tear up. It’s that good.
If the ending of Bojack Horseman made you quite emotional, then there will be plenty of moments in Adventure Time that are sure to do the same. One may be a children’s show, but they both deal with similar issues, with Adventure Time just handling them in a more G-rated manner. However, it definitely does not mean one is better or worse than the other. Both are equally enjoyable and heartwarming.
