The Absolute Best Cartoons To Watch While You’re High
If you’re sick of watching the same old shows with actual human beings as actors whenever you get stoned, diving into the world of animation is definitely something you should try. Animated shows are great to watch when you’re stoned, because you’re getting the same character depth you likely crave when watching a live-action series but with the bright colors, zany personalities and whimsical scenarios of absurdist fiction. Here are some of the best animated shows to watch the next time you light up.
Of all of the cartoons to watch while high, Adventure Time takes the top slot as the best cartoon to enjoy with weed. Not only is Adventure Time so beautiful to look at, with its bright colors and crazy backdrops, but the characters are deep and relatable, especially you enjoy a little bit of insightfulness with your visual high. Adventure Time has a huge cult following, and no wonder: Finn is a brave hero, triggering the nostalgia of childhood adventure in adults, and Jake’s wisdom never comes at a bad time. Adventure Time is an all-around perfect stoner cartoon.
Rick And Morty
If you’re looking for fun stoner cartoons, look no further than Rick and Morty. The series has become a worldwide phenomenon since its release in 2013 and it’s easy to see why. With a loosely real-world scientific and sci-fi backdrop that plays on themes of time travel, alternate dimensions and multiple universes, Rick and Morty is the perfect stoner animation for cannabis lovers who are attracted to supernatural themes and philosophical conversations. It’s also perfect for those of us who love getting the giggles from fart jokes, inappropriate burping, and the completely absurd adventures that take place.
Strains For Giggling And Laughing
While at this point considered more of a classic animation, Sailor Moon is a different style of cartoon to watch while high, as it falls into the anime category. The themes that stoners adore are all still there – friendship, bravery and love – but it’s also action-packed as we watch our heroes try to save the world against all adversity. You’ll definitely get a sense of “girl power” from Sailor Moon while still enjoying everything we love about watching cartoons while stoned: bright colors, engaging scenarios and out-of-this-world characters.
Over The Garden Wall
Over the Garden Wall is one of the best stoner cartoons out there, especially if you’re looking for something short and sweet. As an Emmy-award winning miniseries with only ten episodes, it’s also great for nights where you’ve had some energetic weed and may not have the laziness to binge something longer. Over the Garden Wall is a fantastical tale of two half-brothers, Wirt and Greg, who end up lost in a forest and have to manage in the strange world of the Unknown, encountering a myriad of supernatural creatures along the way. This animated series is definitely for that kind of artsy, insightful and relaxed type of high.
Strains For Relaxation
Almost nothing is better to watch while you’re high than the king of cartoons, South Park. As one of the longest-running non-anime cartoon shows to date, South Park is perfect for stoners who need to satisfy their need for uncontrollable laughter. Like many strains of weed, South Park will definitely bring you joy and feed into your ideas about the current state of the world. Always timely, South Park offers a sometimes absurdist take on current events in a way that stoners in particular will relate to.
The Amazing World Of Gumball
The Amazing World of Gumball can definitely be considered a great stoner animation for those who love to enjoy crazy visuals and aesthetics. By combining different animation styles, puppets and even live-action, The Amazing World of Gumball takes the viewer into an entirely different dimension. The show is also very up to date and regularly comments on current events, which will make for the best kind of stoned conversation as you question your reality and toe the line between fiction and reality.
Cannabis Strains With Stone Effect
Aqua Teen Hunger Force
Absurdity hits an entirely new level with Aqua Teen Hunger Force. ATHF is the backbone of Adult Swim and a must-see for stoners everywhere. And with an 11-season run from 2000 to 2015, some would even argue that mainstream stoner culture couldn’t exist without ATHF. Follow Master Shake, Frylock and Meatwad on adventures as they have the craziest interactions with fictional villains and real-world celebrities. It’s hard to imagine that Aqua Teen Hunger Force isn’t purposeful stoner animation as you follow the daily life of anthropomorphic fast food items living in New Jersey.
If you‘re an animal lover as well as a cannabis lover, you’ll love watching Regular Show while you’re stoned. Nothing is better than watching cute animals doing things that all adults do: working as a groundskeeper, pulling pranks on your friends and. possibly murder? Well, regardless, Regular Show is never dull and every episode is a different adventure, which makes it perfect for the indecisive stoner. Whether you’re looking for something cute and wholesome or are in the mood for dark horror, Regular Show is anything but your regular stoned cartoon experience.
Cannabis Strains For Sleeping
Gravity Falls is definitely not as raunchy or adult as some of the other shows on this list, and may not be considered a typical stoner cartoon, but it’s still just as insightful and impactful to the high mind. Set in the fictional town of Gravity Falls in Oregon, Gravity Falls tells the story of fraternal twins Dipper and Mabel as they try to understand the secret supernatural history of this mysterious town. With only two seasons, the story is compact and action-packed, which will keep you invested, impassioned and on the edge of your seat.
The last show on our list is sure to pull at the heartstrings of millennial stoners everywhere. One of the best ways to fulfill deeper emotions that come up while you’re high is to dabble in something highly nostalgic, and for many millennial stoners, nothing is more nostalgic than watching Pokémon – a series about an alternative world in which humans live side by side with fantastic animal-like creatures. Even the newer seasons are something to enjoy, as we see our main characters growing up before our eyes. Pokémon is the number one adventure story of a generation that encourages friendship, bravery, and overcoming obstacles to become the very best, making it easily one of the best cartoons to watch while high.

10 Cartoons You Have To Watch Stoned
If you ever find yourself yearning for shows that play to the strength of being high, then look no further. There are no nature documentaries or dramatic mini-series here. Instead, our “must-watch” list is comprised of the best cartoons to enjoy high.
GET HIGH AND FALL IN LOVE WITH CARTOONS ALL OVER AGAIN
Whether it is the style of animation, the quirky characters, or the downright outrageous storylines, each cartoon is significantly improved by our uplifting friend, Mary Jane. Those quiet evenings getting stoned in front of the TV needn’t be so quiet anymore. You will be bursting with feel-good vibes, and lost in fits of laughter late into the night.
AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE
It is hard to put the concept of Aqua Teen Hunger Force into words. Just trying to describe the characters makes it sound like the creators must’ve been high when they designed the show. The characters make no sense, the plot is often bizarre, and the animation style takes pride in mocking itself. By all accounts, Aqua Teen Hunger Force shouldn’t be great to watch, but it really, really is.
A few joints in, and suddenly the show just seems to make sense. Don’t ask us how, just smoke and find out for yourself.
An absolute classic that contains all the elements needed to keep stoners entertained. Outlandish animal characters may start life grounded in reality, but quickly defy the odds and cheat death regularly. The episodes are also short and sweet, which is a welcome change from the hour-long comedy specials on Netflix.
Sometimes, you want to watch something that lasts as long as one joint, before getting stuck into your evening plans. Looney Tunes will remind you of those carefree years as a child, and leave you floating with feel-good vibes.
RICK AND MORTY
No matter how many times you watch the same episode of Rick and Morty, there is always a subtle innuendo or hidden reference you miss. There are the obvious jokes; then there are the inside jokes that only loyal fans will understand. The difficulty, however, is the show can be a little hard to get into, especially if you have started late and your friends have a head start.
Fire up the bong, get the first couple of seasons lined up, and before you know it, you’ll be the guy that’s doing flawless Rick impressions at house parties.
THE REN AND STIMPY SHOW
Ren represents the uptight, moderately stressed corporate machine that many of us fall victim to being. While Stimpy, on the other hand, is the fun-loving, carefree friend we all wish we could be a little more like. Whether you relate to the characters or not, there is something strangely real about the scenarios that Stimpy gets himself into, and the way Ren reacts.
Add marijuana into the equation, and The Ren and Stimpy Show is one of the few cartoons that will have you rolling around with laughter, rather than just the light exhale many shows manage these days.
If you struggle with some of the ageing animation techniques used in older shows like Looney Tunes or Freakazoid, Adventure Time is the modern remaster that captures the essence of lovable children’s cartoons. While many of the characters may appeal to children, it is the dialogue and suggestive nature that have captured the hearts of adults.
The perfect way to fuse the visually appealing nature of the animation with the laughter-inducing narrative is to add some top-drawer ganja to the proceedings. By allowing your mind to wander the cosmos, it suddenly feels like you are right there with the Adventure Time crew.
Western society has long been fascinated with Japanese culture and the concept of the samurai. Samurai Jack blends Western animation and constant action with the themes of honour and redemption as told by ancient clans of samurai warriors.
While many viewers tune in for the classic underdog tale of Jack against the hordes of evil, stoners stay for the intoxicating art style and iconic soundtrack. An intensely euphoric sativa is the ideal complement to the vivid colours and fast-paced fight scenes. Cannabis elevates the show, helping it become the perfect conduit for East-meets-West.
If you have already seen some of the older cartoons in our must-watch list, then it is easy to see their influence in Spongebob Squarepants. The show perfectly balances simple animation with very adult themes. In fact, if you have been on the internet in the last five years, it doesn’t take much to find a sprawling collection of Spongebob memes.
Pre-roll a few blunts, and the charismatic characters will become your new best friends. Some cartoons don’t have to make sense to be funny, they just are.
If you thought the best stoner cartoons would all be about bizarre characters and high-octane fight scenes, think again! Sailor Moon still has some odd characters, and there is action, but the show has an appeal that’s grown among adult men and women. The main characters are fighting for justice while trying to balance the struggles of everyday life. Highly relatable for a large portion of its audience, Sailor Moon has gathered a cult following.
With a few joints to break you in, you will soon find you have more in common with the main characters than you originally thought.
Freakazoid comes from an era that many of us cannot believe existed. Cartoons were free to push the boundaries of their jokes, and their characters, but still be shown in primetime slots.
Freakazoid is not your typical superhero; instead, he may be one of the first anti-heroes to capture the attention of mainstream audiences. Either way, he is strangely charming—in a slightly psychotic and deranged kind of way. With a ton of subtle references and quick skits, a hard-hitting indica helps slow down the senses and let you capture every moment.
One of the few (surviving) shows that is still allowed to step over the line and tackle controversial topics.
With 22 seasons, there is plenty of satirical humour to go around, but all that popular culture can wear a little thin after a while. Instead, try chomping down on a few edibles before embarking on a South Park binge. The fart jokes, jibes about Cartman’s mum, and the infamous “who killed Kenny line” will seem just as funny 22 seasons in as they did when watching the first episode.
Even if you've seen the cartoons on our must-watch list, spark a few joints and enjoy them all over again. You'll quickly find they take on a new meaning.
