Another fan credits Adult Swim for saving shows that would have otherwise been doomed forever by tweeting, “Adult Swim turns 20 and could be one of the reasons why shows like Family Guy and Futurama was able to be brought back after getting cancelled by Fox. Even if Disney takes the shows from Adult Swim, what they did for the Fox shows will surely be remembered.”

Adult Swim turns 20 years old today. I remember when me and my brother first watched when it started. Then laughing our asses off watching ATHF, Harvey Birdman, and Sealab 2021. Now I feel as old as the old guy in the first adult swim bumps. pic.twitter.com/YSLuLoPTcc

I came across Adult swim not long after it started and I fell in love with it. I remember staying up late so many nights to watch the shows. So glad they started it and that it stuck around. So many great memories!

When I was a little kid, I use to turn on Adult Swim during my bedtime just to watch shows like Aqua Teen and The Boondocks.

Defiance is cool ????
