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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

    Most regular cannabis consumers have developed a tolerance to weed wherein even a heavy sesh isn’t likely to do much beyond enhance mood, promote relaxation and maybe stimulate the appetite a bit.

    But for new smokers (or seasoned smokers trying lesser-used products like edibles), weed can transport one on a psychological and emotional journey like no other.

    Stage 1: The wait

    Sitting and waiting for products like edibles to kick in can take hours, as illustrated when SpongeBob is sitting with Patrick and bashing his tiny fist against a tabletop in impatience.

    Stage 2: The ascent

    The edibles are kicking in as SpongeBob sails through the air. “Fly so very high and touch the sky!” he sings as the clouds zip past and all is well. Oh, SpongeBob, if only you knew what you were in for next.

    Stage 3: Ice cream

    SpongeBob licks an ice cream cone with precision and speed, possibly trying to ward off the dreaded cotton-mouth, as he stares vacantly into space. Many consumers can relate!

    Stage 4: The power of imagination

    “We don’t need television… not as long as we have our imagination!” Patrick and SpongeBob make the statement from a large cardboard box, which we all know is the ultimate blank canvas for 3D creativity/hideout for if and when the outside world become a little too intense.

    Stage 5: Paranoia

    “The aliens are projecting our memories onto the environment! They’re trying to confuse us, Patrick,” a paranoid, spacesuit-bedecked SpongeBob hyperventilates, perfectly illustrating the moment shortly before a consumer realizes he or she probably didn’t need that second helping of gummies.

    Stage 6: The munchies

    SpongeBob dumps an entire box of Kelpo l into a bowl and devours it within seconds. Who among us can say that they have not eaten an unreasonable amount of cereal at one time or another thanks to a little too much weed?

    Stage 7: The comedown

    “Now I am utterly normal,” SpngeBob squeaks, staring into space without blinking in a matter that fuses denial and a need or desire to be as low-key as possible about the fact that he is still mashed out of his tiny, perforated mind.
