    Default Do You Watch Kids Shows?

    Do you ever put on a show intended for kids? I've found a few I like, like the newer Strawberry Shortcake, and now Ever After High.

    How about you?

    I mean, I guess? I'm not dismissive of the idea but I never go out of my way to watch them, and I don't have a TV now. I used to love the hell out of Phineas and Ferb back when I was still visiting my parents more frequently, though

    Yep, I really don't see any reason why I shouldn't watch kids shows.
    There really isn't anything "immature" about that - "immature" is when you are irresponsible and never take anything seriously, whereas watching kids shows is a type of joy and entertainment.

    In my opinion, anything that makes you feel good and that doesn't hurt anyone in any way is something that is worth doing.

    A few personal favourite shows include "Donald Duck" (of course!), "Dick Dastardly & Muttley In Their Flying Machines" and "Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers".

    I only watch those shows in English though, since those versions are almost always better in most aspects - better character names, better lyrics etc.
    In particular, the names of Disney characters are perfect, I like how they use alliteration and that their last names often specify their respective species (Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse etc), and both those things are mostly missing in the Swedish versions.

    My stepdad is nearly 50 and gets up early on a morning every day to watch cartoons and he doesn't give a smurf. He's always liked it!

    I would if there were any I liked nowadays. I probably wouldn't go out of my way, but if I knew that like Cardcaptors was on every day at 8am I'd probably watch it! I think cartoons are such a morning thing for me! I loved watching the cartoon shows before school and on weekends!

    Phineas and Ferb is one of the greatest shows ever and a rare kids show that if I see a new one I'll watch. Beside that only with my niece and nephew.

    Phineas and Ferb and Adventure Time are really good. I randomly found myself watching Courage the other day.

    I hadn't seen kids television since I was 11 or 12, up until last year when Mr. Carny's younger sister (who was 6 at the time) was watching a Care Bears cartoon. Being the dutiful sort-of-brother that I was, I of course watched it with her, asking her to explain the various concepts of the television show in my usual deadpan 'the comically serious' humour that I tend to have with kids.

    It was actually pretty enjoyable. I also watched a My Little Pony show with her. In that one, there was a detective mystery about a defiled dessert at a pudding competition, and I do love a good mystery. I feel like where I am now, I can't ever see myself watching a cartoon voluntarily or by myself, but if a child was there watching (or wanting to watch) then I'd be happy to oblige.

    I don't really like Adult Shows that much with a few exceptions. Kids shows however... they amuse me more then adult shows.

    I don't enjoy watching educational cartoon aimed at 3-6 years old, now that I'm 22.

    ... I do like some animated films and TV series, but actually I consider them as "All age shows" though rather than being specifically a kids only thing.
