Who would have thought that there are so many kids cartoons for adults out there?! I won’t lie; I have watched most of these shows on my own without any children present. Is that weird? Maybe, but who cares? There are a lot of kids cartoons that adults watch too, even without their kids around. So here are seven kids cartoons for adults to enjoy too.
1. Spongebob Squarepants
Who doesn’t love “Spongebob"?! Seriously, I know people in their 40s that enjoy watching Spongebob just as much as little kids do. It’s the kind of show that the whole family can enjoy watching together. This may seem like the most obvious choice on a list of kids cartoons for adults, but it’s a cartoon nonetheless and it’s interesting that so many adults love to watch it!
2. Gravity Falls
“Gravity Falls” is a really weird show. The premise is that this set of twins moves in with their great-uncle Stan and it seems like there are a lot of weird things happening in the town. That doesn’t seem like too strange of a plot, but when I’ve watched the show with other people who aren’t into it, they look at me like I’m crazy for enjoying it. Although it’s really weird, it’s also a lot of fun!
3. My Little Pony
This is the only show on the list that I haven’t watched. It may seem odd, but there is really a huge adult fan base for “My Little Pony.” Even more surprisingly, it’s a lot of male adults that are watching it! They say that the show sends these amazing messages of love, acceptance, and friendship, but I wouldn’t know since I haven’t seen it. I don’t judge those who watch it, but I’m still surprised by it.
4. Phineas and Ferb
I used to not be able to stand this show and now I think I love it more than my younger siblings do! I know so many people around my age (early 20s) and older than me that love to watch “Phineas and Ferb”! Who knows what it is that is so entertaining about this show, but it really is just so much fun to watch. As a reference point, my mother always says that it sort of reminds her of “Rugrats,” but better.
5. The Regular Show
I’ve watched a few episodes of this show and found it pretty funny, but could never get into it enough to want to watch more. “The Regular Show” has attracted a lot of adult viewers and I can’t figure out why. It seems that the show is aimed for an older child to maybe the early teens and yet adults are tuning in! It has some pretty odd-ball characters and it can definitely cause a few laughs.
6. Adventure Time
This one really confuses me! I’ve only watched one episode of this show and it was so weird. I’m sure that’s what people like about it, but it just didn’t draw me in. To be quite honest I couldn’t tell you what it was about if I tried. It wasn’t a bad show; it just didn’t make me want to watch more. Other than that, it was pretty funny and it had a vampire, so that’s pretty cool.
7. The Amazing World of Gumball
Another weird but fun to watch show. It seems that adults really like to watch strange kids cartoons. “The Amazing World of Gumball” is about a family where the dad is a rabbit, the mom is a cat, and the kids are a rabbit, a cat, and a fish. Other than that I have no idea what this show is about! It’s really cute and funny though, so I enjoy watching it. Now that I think about it, cartoons are really strange these days…
You’re never too old for cartoons! It may seem weird that these shows attract so many adults, but I think it’s kind of fun and interesting. Do you watch any of these shows? What would you add to this list?
