Do you still watch cartoons as an adult?

I can not forget in a hurry the days of the popular Tom and Jerry series in our time. That was the time when we won't eat anything because we are trying to catch up with the series. 

However, as adults, I think that this is different and I would like to know if you still watch cartoons because this is what I always enjoy watching even at this age.

Yes, cartoons are still an acceptable for adults to watch so I still watch them. The difference is that cartoons for adults exist now, so rather than watch the ones meant for children, I watch adult ones like BoJack Horseman. I was also never really into cartoons to begin with, so my experience with them has been someone else introducing me to the cartoon and then, I decide to watch it too. Shout-out to an ex-boyfriend for introducing me to BoJack in the first place lol.

This is nice. I always have fun watching cartoons and one thing that I have gotten to understand is that it is even better than watching some movies that are poorly scripted as well.

I agree. Sometimes these cartoons make more sense compared to some movies with a high budget.

That’s a good point - there are a lot of cartoons designed more with adults in mind rather than children. Just because something is animated doesn’t mean it’s created for little ones! I’ve heard a lot about Bojack Horseman and I really need to check out some episodes.

Cartoons is just telling a story in style. One can watch the children ones and enjoy. Once the story is well told, I see no problem in watching cartoons

I still watch cartoon shows and cartoon movies. In fact, some of my all time favorite movies are actually cartoon movies. When I was a kid I watched a lot of cartoons, however, I stoped watching cartoon when I became a teenager. I stopped watching cartoon because I though cartoon was for kids and I was no longer a kid. Then after a long time, when my nephew and nice began watching cartoon, I sat with them watching cartoons. These days I watch cartoon with my two years old child.

Oh yes, why not? Cartoon is a form of entertainment and there is no harm in watching Cartoons. It does not have any age bar. When a number of people watch animated films and Anime, I see no harm in watching Cartoons on the TV and on Youtube. I mainly watch Scooby Doo and Tom and Jerry as these are very humorous and always keep me laughing.

Let's be honest, cartoons can be better than movies. If it's drawn it doesn't make it less serious or a boring form of art. For example, one of my favorite cartoons back in the old days were Samurai Jack series. Beats any action movie if you ask me.

Cartoons are more entertaining. And they're more relaxing to watch compared to other shows. I think this is why even adults still watch it.

I remember Samurai Jack. I agree it is very interesting to watch. A lot plot twists and actions that makes it very interesting and entertaining to watch.

One of my favorite cartoons back then that I won't get tired of watching is Jackie Chan. It is based on the international star Mr. Jackie Chan. In the series he was an archaeologist who battles Shadow clan ninjas for the 12 amulets of Zodiac. It was very entertaining to watch. And as a fan of Mr. Jackie Chan, maybe I imagine him doing the series in real life at the back of my mind as I watch the series.

Tom and Jerry it's a classic, and doesn't matter how old it gets, it still is super funny. However, I have to say that I've watched a newer version, where they even speak, and I don't find it as funny as the old one. Maybe is the fact that I'm used to the mute version, where you have to create the whole plot with what you think they're saying.

We cannot deny the fact that cartoons are still entertaining even though we are already adult. It was the best days of our lives when we was young. We sacrifice everything to watch our favorite cartoons but as we grow older, we already have our priorities and we don't have much time on watching cartoons, but sometimes I am watching some clips when I have my free time and it was so relaxing to watch them once again.

Absolutely correct. We did not have smartphones those days and it was a lot better. People enjoyed watching the television and playing video games on the console. It were the golden days and I'm afraid they will never be back for the next generation thanks to the advancement in technology.

Yeah, I watch cartoons with my daughter. Especially because I don't like modern cartoons, as they seem very evil and not kid friendly. So we watch the old cartoons I used to back in the old days. Like Samurai Jack, Jimmy Neutron and many many others. It's fun to this day, hehe.

Jimmy neutron is a nice kid cartoons and one that you can watch with your little children. There are some new generation cartoons that are not nice for kids and this is something that I don't really like when we are talking about cartoons watching since there is ought to be a balance on that angle.

What I dislike in modern cartoons is the art and the animation. Modern animation seems not so kid friendly. It even seems somehow aggresive, at some point. Not suitable for the mind of the children. I'd even prefer my 3 years old daughter to watch Courage rather than these "new cartoons".

I don't see why adults should not watch cartoons anymore. Actually, there are a lot of cartoons that I have enjoyed as a child, that I come to understand better when I watched it as an adult. Like Spongebob. Or Adventure Time. There are a lot of cartoons that you come to appreciate more when you are older.

You are right as watching cartoons while we are old enough is one way that we can get to understand some basic things about what they are trying to show us. I have learnt so much by watching cartoons and I don't really bother about what people around say about it.

You mentioned Pixar and I instantly thought of Coco.

That animated movie is my most favorite of all! It not only gives you a nice look at a culture and tradition but it also teaches you a lot about family and love. It's just one of the movies I love watching over and over.
And I think I watched it 4 times when I got the DVD.

I know right? sometimes the repetitive sound of the characters gets in my head too.
