Why do adults watch only adult shows instead of cartoons?
(Personal Opinion) Because they cannot imagine there life as a cartoon. In 2011, there are more "reality tv" shows than there are anything else... Why do you think that is? (And how much of reality do they actually portray)
They teach us that cartoons don't explain the world around us
Some adults find normal tv shows boring and perhaps depressing (news etc.) They are trying to find a new source of entertainment and watch cartoons because they usually consist only happy and joy full things. In the other hand sometimes adults watch anime, which has shows that are meant to be watched by adults, so its normal.
What is the difference between adults watching cartoons as part of their entertainment and adults who watch only cartoons as their main entertainment?
The difference is the maturity and experience that an adult has. Watching only cartoons as an adult can result in a lack of maturity and experience whereas an adult watching cartoons as part of his or her entertainment shows responsibility and more maturity
I am not sure that they do. I am an adult, and I have never seen a show that told me that it was bad to watch cartoons. I still watch them sometimes, even though adults are a lot busier than kids usually, and we have less time to watch. But cartoons are still fun, and many adults still watch them. In fact, some cartoon shows are made for adults.
Do they? It isn't so much cartoon versus realistic, as it is children oriented versus adult oriented. Adults watch adult oriented shows that may or may not be realistic. Traditionally cartoons were a medium focused towards children. As the focus of cartoons changes the audience will change with it.
because adults are older now they might still watch cartoons from time to time
Because that's likely their form of entertainment
Cartoons and children shows are a lot easier to understand they require less thought to understand them. Many adults look for something a bit more mentally or psychologically challenging. Add to that that there are some things that adults don't want children to see.
they are too old and watch ADULT shows.
Because as you age you thiink that you are to old to watch baby programs and start watching adult stuff! But some adults still watch both!
Why does a girl think that since you watch cartoons you are acting like a kid and you should man up?
because cartoons are not what an adult should watch unless he has kids. ___ On the contrary, many adults watch cartoons, and it is okay. That girl obviously doesn't like cartoons, but that doesn't mean no girls like them, or that they are any worse to watch than some of the "adult" shows that can be stupid too. There is no rule in adulthood that says you can't watch cartoons. I am an adult, and… Read More
Why do some adults prefer to watch only cartoons instead of other shows like sitcoms dramas and the news if they know it is bad for them?
They don't care about the consequences
I think it's because early cartoons were aimed at children, specifically. Cartoons nowadays have more adult themes and references than cartoons from the early 1900's to the 1960's. Those were cartoons from a more innocent era. People are more cynical and savvy now. There are plenty of cartoons nowadays that are aimed squarely at teens and adults. 'Family Guy', 'Futurama', 'The Simpsons', and many more, are written with an adult sensibility. I am not, in… Read More
cartoons are developed especially for children. The mind of adults is too advanced for any of that. Study shows, the older you get the more bored of cartoons you get.
The kids covers show cartoons and the adults covers are more like photographs. For example, the Deathly Hallows kids cover shows Ron, Hermione and Harry surrounded by jewels from Gringotts. However, the adults cover shows Slytherin's Locket.
Either they are boring, or they are just plain not cool. --- It has been embedded into many teenagers' and adults' minds that cartoons are for children. Therefore, they will dislike cartoons based on that alone. But there are still many teens and adults who enjoy cartoons. Among the older crowd, South Park and Family Guy are popular, as are anime shows.
Why do some adults like to watch only cartoons instead of other shows like sitcoms dramas and the news if they know it is bad for them?
Because they either don't care about the world around them, or they have childhood trauma
Because adults are expected to watch grownup shows and if you are still watching cartoons by the age of 18 or older than you should probably stop.
well because they're serious in life
Well, I mean like when adults are watching kids cartoons it's just not very grown up. Maybe you just enjoy watching it for the memories or for the laughs, but their's other shows for grown ups that are cartoons, such as South Park, Family Guy, Futurama, I grew up with those cartoons, though.
They do. Many cartoons cater to mature audiences. This is seen in shows like South Park and many anime series.
They expect the teenagers to be more mature now, and the teens sometimes feel that they have outgrown cartoons.
Because some adults want to be kids again, or some adults think that Other content is boring because there is no right style put into 'em, for example, shows/movies that are done with camera and actors, are too realistic, for example, adults who are artists who makes distorted pictures doesn't usually like realism. Some adults like cartoons because cartoons can contain much more impossible things that doesn't happen in real life. Some adults like childish… Read More
nothing! it shows you still have a kid in you which is awesome! :D
I think they want to maintain a young mind, just like me , I am around 25, but I also like cartoons, I think these shows are pure enough, it can made me forgot all unhappy things when I as a adult. That's my answer. Just like this http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090301193726AAthrcX
irt doesn't matter what age you are you can watch whatever shows and cartoons you like....... nice question mate........
No, it really wasn't, there's little if any evidence of that, the show was meant to appeal to both adults and kids, seeing how adults usually are forced to watch cartoons with their kids, the show added some adult humor to itself, humor that only the adults would get. Other then that, no, it was always intended to be a kids show. The same effect happened with other kids shows like Rocko, Rugrats, and many… Read More
As people mature many lose their sense of imagination, fun and fantasy, and find themselves content to watch dull-witted "reality" shows and other mindless pursuits. They, unfortunately, have little concept of the many skills and talents involved in the production of a well made cartoon or animation.
Yes ,they should start whaching adult shows.
because their expectations are too high to have the perfect child
Adult Swim is a section of more mature cartoons and animes that are shown on cartoon network late at night.
Why adults treat you like a kid since you like to watch cartoons on a regular basis as a 20 year old man?
Probably because they think cartoons are for kids, which they are, but there's honestly nothing wrong with what kind of shows you watch.
because some parents want to remember there young hood
I'm guessing that adults and teens don't find the comedy in these cartoons amusing which i get because i am a teen! "grown up" shows like family guy seem much more amusing because they have crude humor that they find funnier, people mature with age and those dumb kiddie cartoons don't seam to be mature or like you said grown up enough. but cartoons like Disney's classic "steamboat willie" (please look it up on youtube)… Read More
These teens & adults probably think you are too old to watch these or they think that those shows are stupid. Or possibly they are just being immature.
They are young adults so it's logical they would watch shows targeted to that audience.
Absolutely not! There are even perfectly normal adults that watch nothing but cartoons. People continue to watch cartoons into adulthood because they are familiar television shows. People usually watch cartoons all throughout childhood, so naturally they cling to the familiar and beloved pastime.
Contrary to what the question suggests, college students watch a lot of cartoons - ranging from the stupid like spongebob squarepants to the more complex like some Anime.
Many adults know it is nothing to be shameful of, and embrace the concept of cartoons as a form of entertainment. Shows such as Family Guy and South Park are strong evidence of this, as are many animes - these shows are fully intended for mature audiences and are often scaled back for westerners, to be displayed as "children's television" - Yu-Gi-Oh and other such programs are perfect examples of this, as anyone who has… Read More
Depends what you mean by cartoons. If it is childish shows like Dora, than that would be because Dora is a show purely meant for children, and it has certain themes that are repetitive and are only really new to children. However, if you are speaking of spongbob, or my little pony, it is fine to watch only those types of shows because there is an adult side to the humor of the show. Those… Read More
Cartoons are shows so no.
All this shows that all adults should be educated and we must help them, if we can.
the medium of cartoon is a fantastic way to get life messages across to kids, and an easy way to spark their imaginations also, as cartoon characters are free, you can defy the laws of gravity and do anything you want to do! However there are cartoons/animated shows that are definitely not for kids, with adult humour, obscenities, nudity and recreations of things kids wouldn't have even heard about. An interesting thing about most adult… Read More
because they want to pretend thet they actually want to be adults
because most cartoons are made for kids, some however, are very inappropriate such as family guy. but shows like Adventure Time and Chowder and Invader Zim are aimed at children around the ages 10 to 15. i hoped this helped your inquiry.
They don't only watch adult shows. Most of the time they don't like children's shows because they find them too simple, childish, or unrealistically positive. However, there are exceptions. Sometimes teenagers and adults watch children's shows, most of the time it is for nostalgic purposes as they revisit shows from their childhood. Sometimes, however, they will find a new show they like. In a rather unusual case, many and perhaps millions of teenagers and young… Read More
i think that it is because they don't realise that they are not all just silly little kids shows some of them do actually have a meaning behind them. they are also not used to this because they did not have it when they were younger and can only relate them to when they were kids shows.
It is definitely very rude and shows no 'class ' on the part of this adult, however I doubt it is illegal. ( particularly as 'adults' make all the laws)
To just make sure adults dont see, it might be embarrasing to the actor, and maybe ... A little... Disgusting?
no, if an adult shows a babinski sign this could mean that there is a problem in the central nervous system particularly in the pyramidal tract.
