The Best Animated Program of 2011 as voted by you is also the longest running Animated program that was nominated. The Simpsons!
The lovable nuclear family from Springfield, Somewhere, USA topped the polls convincingly with nearly 500 votes. Now in its amazing 23rd season, the cartoon that developed from a skit on the Tracey Ullman show has been the flagship program of FOX for many years. Homer, Bart, Maggie, Marge, Lisa & the gang never really seemed in doubt to win from day 1 of the finals thru till the end. They opened up a large lead fast, and never looked back.
Family Guy narrowly held on to 2nd place, after having a comfortable lead on the spot early on, as 3rd place Family Guy closed the gap near the end only losing by 22 votes. South Park finished 4th, and Phineas And Ferb (a write in challenger in the 1st round) rounded out the finalists, and came close to pulling itself out of the basement in the final couple days.
THE SIMPSONS 489
FAMILY GUY 327
