The day’s finally over (or maybe it’s just getting started!), and you’re able to sit and relax. The first question that comes to mind is: What stoner shows do you want to binge watch?
Your bong’s packed, you’ve got some delicious munchies set-out…but wait: Stoner tv shows or a stoner movie?
Stoner movies require you to find something to match your mood. Plus, you’re locked into something for an hour-and-a-half-to-two-hours.
If you’re not feeling like making such a lengthy decision, then you’re left with tv shows. You could always toss on an oldie-but-goodie, but the time has finally arrived to start a new stoner show.
This list is broken down into the following sections:
Each capsule has a descriptive headline. This allows you to dive in for more info, or skim with ease. When appropriate, there’s a trailer, too.
Quick side note: The majority of these tv shows for stoners are available for streaming on Amazon video. If you have a Prime membership, you can watch them for free.
So, use this list to find your absolute favorite new stoner TV shows to binge watch, roll a joint, and hit play.
As children, we watched loads of cartoon shows and movies. Our love for them didn’t reduce as we made our way into adulthood. Entertainment moguls capitalized on this love.
So, you can watch awesome cartoons as an adult, too. Here, you’ll find the best stoner cartoon shows out there.
1. Best Philosophical Stoner Show
As far as stoner television shows go, there are a few that immediately come to mind. You’ve heard your homies talking about it, and cackling over the irreverent, often-intelligent jokes. Say it with me now: Rick and Morty.
A grandfather, Rick–who happens to me the most intelligent man in the universe–and his not-so-brilliant grandson, Morty, travel across the universe and bounce into other timelines.
This brings about interesting philosophical questions. Some people may argue the show isn’t remotely intelligent, and is pure entertainment. Duh! It’s entertainment, regardless of if you’re learning or not.
This dynamic duo gets into tons of tight spots, meet crazy characters from across the universe, and even partake in a game show.
So if you’re ready to get schwifty with Rick and Morty, you need to add this three-season series to your line-up ASAP.
- Provides irreverent, amusing humor
- Short episodes – under-30-minutes
- Has a different take on philosophical issues
- Phenomenal price for the first three seasons
- Not everyone’s cup of tea
2. Best Cartoon Stoner Show
There’s something magical about cartoons when you’re stoned. Seriously. They’re just so dang entertaining.
And, if you’d rather play on your phone with some background noise (honestly, who hasn’t done that?), it doesn’t matter how much you miss of it.
Bob’s Burgers is the epitome of this cartoon-y awesomeness. The show’s about the Belcher family, a middle-class group of five, who own a burger place right off the pier, and live above the restaurant.
Bob just wants to make his customers happy, and he’ll go to weird lengths to do so. Linda always encourages Bob’s dreams, as well as those of her children, Tina, Gene, and Louise.
Tina, the oldest, is an awkward middle schooler, with an obsession with horses. Gene is an over-the-top class clown, who can turn just about anything into a laughing matter. And Louise is a devious genius, with a soft heart, and will never take off her pink bunny ears hat.
Together, the Belcher family will leave you snort laughing, regardless of whether you’ve taken a few bong rips, or not.
- Episodes are 21-minutes – easy to binge watch
- There are eight seasons
- Amusing comedy, meant to make you smile and laugh
- Continues to be funny throughout the seasons
- Not great if you’re looking for something more serious
3. Best Irreverent Stoner Show
If there’s one show that almost all stoners admit to binging when baked, it’s more than likely Family Guy.
After all, it’s full of irreverent humor, and often touches on many touchy or popular topics. And, it’s a cartoon–there’s just something refreshingly enjoyable about cartoons!
The Griffin family is a not-so-average middle class family, consisting of Peter, Lois, Meg, Chris, Stewie, and Brian. Peter’s antics frequently land the family in weird, often unpleasant situations.
One time, he purchased a lame horse, in lieu of the carton of milk he was asked to pick up. Another time, he sold their house in Quahog, for the opportunity to run a farm.
Without a doubt, you’re sure to end up in a fit of giggles over something dumb that happens on this awesome stoner show.
- Sure to put a smile on your face, or fall into a fit of laughter
- Full of irreverent, often controversial humor
- Episodes are only 22-minutes, and there are 16 seasons
- There’s an offshoot show, The Cleveland Show, too
- May not be ideal if you’re easily offended
“Regular” in this sense doesn’t mean “normal”. Instead, it merely refers to the fact that human actors, rather than cartoons are used.
Here, you’ll find the best ones.
4. Best ’70s Stoner Show
The ’60s and ’70s are well-known for diving head-first into drug culture. After all, Woodstock was in 1969, and truly epitomized the stoner lifestyle.
So, it should come as no surprise that That ’70s Show is on the list of the best stoner shows.
That ’70s Show follows the lives of six high school students, who are seemingly different in personality. The show documents the ups-and-downs of teenage life in America–and many of the problems still persist today.
But, it’s comedic takes and goofy characters keep you sucked in through all eight seasons, and an impressive 200 episodes. As far as TV shows for stoners go, you won’t be disappointed.
- Has eight seasons, 200 episodes – plenty to binge watch
- Extremely relatable to many common high school experiences
- Hilarious and will leave you giggling all night
- Packaging may arrive damaged
5. Best Stoner ‘Reality TV’ Show
If you’re into more “reality TV” shows, then I’ve got the stoner show for you. And no, I’m not talking Keeping Up With the Kardashians or Toddlers in Tiaras.
Instead, I’m talking something a little more trailer park, and a lot more Canadian. Trailer Park Boys documents the lives of Julian, Ricky, and Bubbles.
They grew up in the Sunnyvale Trailer Park, and continue to live there as adults. Jail, cannabis, and a significant amount of drinking occur in this hilarious stoner show (I’m looking at you, Mr. Lahey!).
In addition to laughing your butt off, you’re bound to hear more than your fair share of “ehs”. Trailer Park Boys may just become your next stoner show go-to.
Price: $44.66 (50 percent off MSRP)
- Each episode is only 30-minutes, so you can watch one, or a bunch in a row
- Runs more like a documentary/reality show of the lives of three trailer park residents
- Comically Canadian
- There are tons of specials and offshoots to binge, as well
- The humor can get a bit stupid at times
6. Best Comedy Stoner Show
Parks and Rec has a bit of a cult following in the same vein as The Office. It’s a TV show documenting the interactions between the Parks and Recreation Office of Pawnee, Indiana.
But, this isn’t just any ol’ government department. Instead, it’s full of a bevy of characters, with different ways of approaching their jobs.
Technically headed by Ron Swanson, the government-hating Libertarian, it’s actually run by Leslie Knope, the spunky, caring, ambitious blonde.
Together with herself, April, the unmotivated, snarky intern, Tom, the goofy, wannabe celebrity who will exploit his position for his gain, Donna, the wicked smart woman who tells it like it is, and Jerry/Larry/Gary, (and a slew of other people outside of the department), they take on various projects from filling a hole in the ground, to improving parks.
As far as shows for stoners go, this is one you’ll come back to time and time again.
- Show evolves of the season, without going too “out-there”
- Hilarious, with a wide variety of other emotions
- Episodes are only 22-minutes, so it’s super easy to binge
- Full of many well-known actors
- Some of the actors are controversial
7. Best Cannabis-Related Stoner Show
Family Guy may be the number one thing to come to mind, when asked the question “What’s your favorite stoner show?”.
But if you said Weeds, you’re definitely correct, too. After all, it’s literally a show about growing, selling, buying, and distributing cannabis.
Nancy Botwin’s husband passed away suddenly. She was left with two boys, and felt lost in the world. For some side income, she occasionally sold bud to some local neighbors.
As time wore on, though, her clientele grew ever-larger, imposing certain threats to herself and her family’s safety.
Her now-dead husband’s brother, Andy, moved into the house, often providing assistance to the boys, and frequently annoying Nancy to death.
While they begin life in Agrestic, California, their journey takes them many places. Weeds gets crazy for a few seasons, but bear with it, and you’ll be happy you did.
- Actually about weed
- Very different stoner show than others on this list
- Episodes are around 25-30-minutes – easy to get sucked-in
- Gets a little crazy (unrealistic) at points
8. Best Unique Concept Stoner Show
When TV shows provide a different perspective or type of TV show, it’s downright refreshing. Nowadays, it feels like many shows are “similar” in some way or another. But, Wilfred is definitely an exception.
This show follows the life of a guy named Ryan, who somehow has the power to speak with his neighbor’s dog, Wilfred.
To Ryan, Wilfred acts and talks like a human being. But, to everyone else he’s just a normal dog–a la Eliza Thornberry.
Ryan’s struggling in life in general, and Wilfred provides an interesting friendship. If you’re ready for something original, then Wilfred is the stoner show for you.
- Very unique take on a stoner TV show
- Not strictly comedy – provides drama
- Episodes run around 20-minutes
- Only four seasons
While technically a “regular stoner show”, these series have an educational twist to them. Dive into a mind-blowing topic, during your next smoke sesh.
9. Best Conspiracy Theory Stoner Show
Sometimes when you’re stoned, you just want your mind to be blown. Cue Ancient Aliens Guy meme.
Yep. You know what’s coming next: Ancient Aliens is one of the best stoner documentary series out there. Why? Because it’s so unbelievable, it’s almost believable.
The series dives into various aspects of the theory that extraterrestrials not only exist, but visited earth, and helped shape humanity.
Thanks to various clues across time, from Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, to cave drawings, and mass UFO sightings, it’s hard to deny the possibility of their existence.
Each hour-and-a-half episode drills down into a single aspect of the possibility of alien life on earth. You might not believe in them, but it’s sure as heck interesting to consider it.
- Provides in-depth evidence of the possibility of aliens on earth
- Each episode tackles a single aspect of extra terrestrials
- Episodes are so interesting, you’re easily sucked-in
- There are 10 seasons
- Episodes are an hour-and-a-half-long
