It features the voice of Lizzy Caplan as Reagan Ridley, a genius but socially awkward robotics engineer who works at Cognito Inc., a secret government organization harboring several secrets. Reagan works with her dysfunctional co-workers and tries to resolve several conspiracy theories.

Furthermore, the show’s unique style and sense of humor make some poignant social commentary like ‘Agent Elvis.’
7. Koala Man (2023-)
Created by Michael Cusack, ‘Koala Man’ is an Australian-American superhero animated sitcom. It is based on the 2018 pilot episode of the same name that premiered on ‘Fresh Blood,’ a comedy anthology series. It features the voice of Michael Cusack as Kevin Williams/Koala Man, a father and IT expert moonlighting as a superhero. The show’s protagonist lives a double life similar to Elvis in ‘Agent Elvis.’ Moreover, the show’s universe takes a discourse from real-world history and takes place in a world where Australia is a superpower, and the Titanic never sank. Despite the similarities with ‘Agent Elvis,’ the show creates a distinct identity for itself through the strong influence of Australian culture.
6. Moonbeam City (2015)
‘Moonbeam City’ is an adult animated television series created by Scott Gairdner. It features the voices of Elizabeth Banks, Rob Lowe, Kate Mara, and Will Forte. The show parodies cop shows of the 1980s, such as ‘Miami Vice’ and ‘City Hunter,’ to create a hilarious and intriguing narrative in a retro-futuristic setting. It follows detective Dazzle Novak as he works as an undercover cop and tries to solve several crimes in the titular city. Several traits of Novak’s personality match Elvis and the show’s retro-futuristic setting will remind viewers of ‘Agent Elvis.’ However, its satirical take on the cop shows from the 80s will give viewers a refreshing viewing experience.
5. American Dad! (2005-)
‘American Dad!‘ is an animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker, and Matt Weitzman. In the series, Seth MacFarlane voices Stanford Leonard “Stan” Smith, the patriarch of the upper-middle-class Smith family. Stan works for the CIA and must balance his family responsibilities with his duty to his nation. Although Stan is an agent much like Elvis, his family life forms a crucial aspect of the show’s narrative, giving it a family comedy dynamic. However, ‘Agent Elvis’ and ‘American Dad!’ have satirical takes on American politics and feature main characters driven by a desire to serve their nation, making them cosmetically similar.
4. Black Dynamite (2011–2015)
‘Black Dynamite’ is an adult animated television series developed by Carl Jones. It is based on the 2009 action comedy film of the same name, directed by Scott Sanders and written by Michael Jai White, Scott Sanders, and Byron Minns.

Like ‘Agent Elvis,’ the series is predominantly set in the 1970s and focuses on a secret agent. It also features several real-world personalities, such as President Richard Nixon, and comments on the era’s politics. However, as a parody of blaxploitation cinema, the series has a unique cultural significance.
3. Clone High (2002–2003)
‘Clone High’ (also known as ‘Clone High USA’) is an adult animated science fiction sitcom created by Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Bill Lawrence. It follows the lives of a group of clones of historical figures such as Abe Lincoln, Joan of Arc, Gandhi, Cleopatra, and JFK. The clones engage in typical teenage shenanigans while attending the titular high school. The short-lived series is considered among the best adult animated sitcoms. If you enjoyed watching a fictionalized version of Elvis, you would relish watching more such culturally relevant historical figures, albeit with a twist in ‘Clone High.’ Moreover, a revival of the series has also been announced, taking its popularity to new heights.
2. The Venture Bros. (2003-2018)

Jon Benjamin as Sterling Archer, a narcissistic and womanizing who works for the International Secret Intelligence Service (ISIS), a fictional New York–based intelligence agency.

The show’s flamboyant action style, coupled with its spy-themed narrative and crude humor, is the very same recipe as ‘Archer.’ Moreover, Mike Arnold, who wrote episodes of ‘Archer’ serves as the showrunner on ‘Agent Elvis.’ Lastly, few animated shows have cultural resonance and survive the test of time, like ‘Archer,’ making it the top pick for this list!
