Have you seen John Green's video? I believe it answers your question.

It depends on what show and how you're enjoying it. If you are enjoying it to find the weird innuendos or just laughing at it to laugh at it, then there's not really an age. If you are being immersed by it and you find entertainment in the actual plot and you're over like .. 13? That's when I become a little worried about you... There's a difference between reminiscing with an old childhood show like the Flintstones or Tom and Jerry, and becoming attached to really anything on today's Disney Channel.

When you start being referred to as an adult, enjoying shows aimed at small children is a little weird... especially if you consider yourself a fan.

I know of a lot of childrens shows that are enjoyed by all ages. Kids Next Door, Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends, MLP. all of these have a substantial amount of adult fans, and not all things made for children are bad for you when you become an adult. Take legos for example they are made for children and yet they are loved by adults, and no one has a problem with that. How is liking a childrens toy any different than liking a childrens show.

There are exceptions, I agree... but My Little Pony? Come on man! That show has it's roots traced back to dolls designed for little girls.

Side: This age...

I don't think there is such a thing as "children's show".

Could you be more specific?

Side: This age...

There are very few shows that are specifically "children's shows". Even shows that are aimed at toddlers are still written by adults. The person who is writing it, the actors who are performing, all the support staff involved in the filming and editing, each have their own input which places adult overtones into "children's shows". An adult may walk away with an entirely different message from a show than a child.

Right... keep in mind that I'm talking about shows directed towards really young children, not Looney Tunes type stuff.

It's true that adults are the ones who make the children's shows, but adults also make everything for children. Would you see nothing wrong with an adult sitting on the ground playing with dolls? A child may come up with some far-fetched fairy tale story while playing with their toys, but the adults... oh, they'll add the realism to it. Come on!

The people this debate is really aimed towards, are men who watch My Little Pony. It's called "My Little Pony" because it is a doll designed for little girls, which then became a television show by the same name. It's really the equivalent of a full grown man getting really into the Barbie cartoons. I'm not saying it is wrong or that it should be stopped, just that it is weird.

I don't think it is weird, what's weird is that someone would be interested in what shows someone else chooses to watch and comment on it, that's a little creepy

So I'm "creepy" because I think that grown men who watch a show based off of a toy designed for little girls is weird? What if my comment were to be positive... would that be "creepy" too? I'm talking about the learning time Blues Clues/Dora The Explorer type shows. I assume that My Little Pony fits in that category, except that specific show is marketed towards little girls... yet there is apparently a fan club that consists of full grown men.

So I gave two options. It's a debate. Either you agree or you don't. I personally find it strange, but that's just my opinion. If you're offended then tough shit, but don't try to offend me because I posted a topic that is truly debatable.

My opinion is that it's a bit weird to hear grown men have an intelligent conversation about adventure time... I didn't even know it was shown in my country. But everything's relative, each to their own.

I'm talking about shows aimed at really young children, like that show My Little Pony. Do you think it's weird that there are grown men who are fans of that show? It would be nice if you do... because so far I'm the only one who finds it strange lol.

I don't know, because I haven't seen it. Therefore my opinion on the subject is invalid. I usually take the 'whatever rocks your boat' stance, until it comes to harming people.

Side: This age...

Ohhh come on, Adventure Time is like crack cocaine to me XD. Plus the show can be kinda deep sometimes, and has adult elements in it that go right over kids heads. I mean there was one episode where Finn made a robot for an elaborate prank, and the robot actually had feelings and what not. Then they forgot that he ever existed for a while, then finn falls in love with a girl made of fire who is kind of evil, and she burns everything and he does nothing about it, and the robot helps him though and says "creator I still love you, even if everything burns I will always love you". There was one episode where Lumpy space princess wore a see through dress, caked herself with make up and tried to seduce finn, and acted like your typical negatively portrayed teenage girl, and then learned that beauty was on the inside. There was also a couple of episodes together that I swear strongly imply a past lesbian relationship.

It's nice to take a break from porn and enjoy purity sometimes...no really, everything is too sexualized in this day in time, and honestly it gets old. Alot of animated films are being created to attract older audiences now (ex. Shrek/adventuretime has alot of jokes kids wouldn't get).

I like some animated films. I think the last one I saw was The Adventures of Tin Tin and I thought that was really good, but I'm talking about shows aimed at a very young audience. Like 3-7 age range. Really, this debate is about that show My Little Pony. I just find it weird that so many grown men like a show that seems to be marketed to four year old girls.

Side: This age...

Honestly I don't really give a shit about it. I watched the power puff girls when I was younger, I know that may be a different situation but mehh. I really don't care one way or the other, I can understand how grown men could like PPG, so I understand why grown men like MLP. Is it wierd, yeah a little, everything is in some perspective. I don't think they are ONLY watching it for the attention though, I think they are trying to create cliche about it and thus gain attention that way, but I don't think that is the only reason they watch it. I suspect that the show might actually be a quality show, and that is why they like it. I like PPG, despite it's girlyness and what not, because it was an action show about superheroes fighting supervillains, little girl super heroes maybe but it made no difference to me. The point is I found qualities in the show that got me to like it, sure there was some qualities I didn't care much for but I didn't mind either. Perhaps with MLP it might have a REALLY good plot, or really interesting characters, or something. To be honest GuitarGuy I mean this with little offense as possible, but I think you may be coming from a place of prejudice here.

It's weird! If I think something is weird then I'm going to point it out... most of the time lol. What I find strange and what other people find strange isn't always the same. Everyone seems to think I'm turning into the My Little Pony Nazi or something. That's not how it is, I just think that guys watching that show is the equivalent of guys watching a Barbie show... it's just weird.

Side: This age...

ehhh I think I see where you are coming from there, I would find it kinda weird to see a grown man watching a barbie show, weirder than MLP, but that is just me.

Side: This age...

Did you know the woman who created PPG also created MLP? How interesting is that? Plus I know a ton of bronies who enjoy both those shows, they have the same basic premise anyway, a group of heroes fighting villains.
