    Simply put, what episodes should different animated shows submit for consideration for the Outstanding Animated Program category? One we already know is that Bob’s Burgers will be submitting the episode, “The Horse Rider-er,” which aired this past Sunday. Which ones should (or are) be submitted for other programs in the race?

    Here are some of the other shows in contention:

    American Dad!
    Animals
    Archer
    Bojack Horseman
    F is for Family
    Family Guy
    Gravity Falls
    Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero
    Regular Show
    Rick and Morty
    The Simpsons
    South Park
    Star Wars Rebels

    BoJack Horseman should definitely submit “Escape from L.A.” (Season 2, Episode 11). One of the best TV episodes of the year, animated or otherwise.

    The episode is good, but I don’t think it works without the context of the entire season. I think the better choice would be “Hank After Dark,” episode seven. It works really well on it’s own. I’d also put episode five (“Chickens”), six (“Higher Love”) and eight (“Let’s Find Out”) on that possibility list.

    For “Rick and Morty” I definitely think “Auto Erotic Assimilation” is a great choice but I also think “Total Rickall” would be a stellar choice as well.

    I actually included explanations for each of my episode choices but it didn’t get posted sadly, and included Total Rickall on that list.

    American Dad should submit “Hayley Smith: Seal Team Six” A laugh riot-from beginning to end, both the main plot and sub-plot are superb. This is the show at its FUNNIEST, and that is why it should be the show’s submission.

    Rick & Morty should submit “Auto Erotic Assimilation” or “Total Rickall”, I like the former more but the latter could appeal to a larger base of Emmy voters who are not fans of the show like I am.

    Gravity Falls “A Tale of 2 Stans” I know it seems crazy not to submit the AMAZING series finale, but I don’t know how many Emmy voters who have never watched the show before would get the emotional impact of the ending and all the character resolutions, compared to 2 Stans, which stands on its own as a great individual episode that can be appreciated by anyone, regardless of whether or not they are familiar with the show and its characters.

    South Park “You’re Not Yelping” A brilliant satire of just how unqualified and total obliviously narcissistic so many “professional critics” are nowadays, with the “Yelp” subject being easily applied to Rotten Tomatoes, or any website that gathers critical reviews, regardless of the experience or credentials they actually have. The best and most solidly structured episode of the season, with a disgustingly perfect ending, “Boogers and Cum!”

    Moonbeam City “The Strike Visualizer Strikes Again” I don’t know if they are even submitting an episode since they got tragically, annoyingly cancelled, but if they do, the visually inventive and cleverly entertaining “Strike Visualizer” might actually pull off an upset win. Don’t rule it out, but again, I don’t know if they’re even submitting, which is sad because I would love to see this show be given some well-deserved posthumous recogniton for its sharp satire, love of puns, and unique eccentricities. Poor Rob Lowe, first Moonbeam City gets cancelled, now The Grinder. Even when he’s actually doing great work he can’t catch a break. ;(

    OMG! I can’t believe my reviews DID get posted….. Just hours later after I pressed “submit.” Weird, but still totally awesome that they’re there now.
