Unsupervised is an American comedy television series that aired on FX network from January 19 to December 20, 2012. It was created by Rob Rosell, Scott Marder and David Hornsby, the latter also one of the main voices in the show. The plot of Unsupervised revolves around two best friends, Gary and Joel, who are going through their teenage years without any parental supervision.

Gary (voiced by Justin Long) and Joel (voiced by David Hornsby) are two boys who are living in a suburban town in the United States. They are both in their mid-teens, enduring the challenges that come with this period of their lives. Gary is the more confident of the two, enjoying life through care-free activities like playing video games and hitting on girls, while Joel is more reserved, often getting involved in activities like writing poetry or simply staying at home watching films.

The main draw of the show, however, is the fact that neither of the boys have any parental figures to guide them through their coming-of-age experience. Gary's mother is constantly in rehab, while Joel's father is in prison. Instead of being guided by parents, they rely on themselves and each other to figure things out. Together, they tackle the challenges and insecurities that come with high school life, forming a strong bond in the process.

Adding to the mix of characters are the boys’ classmates and other denizens of the neighborhood. These characters include Megan (voiced by Kaitlin Olson), Joel’s crush, who is outgoing and tough, and Russ (voiced by Romany Malco), a friendly, but somewhat clueless character who always gets into trouble. There’s also Darius (voiced by Fred Armisen), a biology teacher who is always trying to push boundaries in the classroom, and Carol (voiced by Sally Kellerman), a school counselor who is always struggling with her own issues.

Overall, the show is a humorous and heartfelt look at the ups and downs of teenage life. While it features plenty of zany humor and wacky situations, it also explores deeper themes related to growing up, including friendship, love, and personal growth. The show often puts these themes into a comedic context, but always keeps them at the forefront of the story.

Aside from its strong cast of voice actors, Unsupervised is also notable for its unique animation style. The show features a style of animation that is distinctly different from most other popular animated shows of its time. The characters and environments are rendered in a simplistic, almost crude, style that gives the show a distinct visual identity. This visual style, combined with the show's humor and heart, make it stand out among its peers in the animated sitcom genre.

In conclusion, Unsupervised is a fun, irreverent, and often poignant animated comedy that explores the challenges and joys of being a teenager. While it only aired for one season, the show continues to be beloved by fans who appreciate its unique humor and emotional depth. With a talented cast of voice actors and a distinctive animation style, Unsupervised is a show that is well worth watching for anyone who enjoys clever, heartfelt comedy.

Unsupervised is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (13 episodes). The series first aired on January 19, 2012.
