AVPGuyver21's rating:

Here's a list of the longest running animated shows that are both still on today in the United States producing new episodes or have finished their run. Shows on this must have been going on for almost decade (7 years - current) or longer while they are airing or before they finished.

Let me know if I forgotten any shows or if I made any mistakes.
