Which kids’ TV shows are just as funny for adults?

Of the TV shows created for kids, which one have you enjoyed the most as an adult? I have liked ”Invader Zim” and ”The Fairly OddParents.”

The quiet humor and nearly abstract art make ”Samurai Jack” my favorite current TV cartoon. But my all-time fave kids’ show is the sincere and campy ”Pee-wee’s Playhouse” (1986-91). Crammed with characters inanimate (Globey!) and real (Laurence Fishburne as Cowboy Curtis!), ”Pee-wee” pleased everyone, adult and child, in my house.
