Animated shows allow you to escape from reality in a way that live-action series just can’t. Thankfully, there are various streaming options to keep up with past and current animated series, especially if you’re a cartoon lover. Rather than stock up on streaming subscriptions, though, Hulu has a library of animated shows from Hulu Originals, FX Originals and more.
