    yes definitely. I still love Tom and Jerry, never fails to make me laugh. It may be old school but i love how it reminds me of how clumsy we can be no matter how aged we are.

    Oh definitely! Since a lot of them are geared toward adult audiences anyway. Examples are Rick and Morty and Bojack Horseman. These shows humor will definitely just go over kids' heads. I honestly wouldn't even recommend these to kids. I think they make shows like these to help people escape reality. Sure, it tackled real life issues if you think hard enough about it, but it hides behind those colorful quirky drawings that just rests your eyes and your mind from the harrowing days of adulthood. I know I went pretty intense there, but a lot of people will agree that sometimes they just want to go back to being mindless kids again, not worrying about bills you haven't paid yet. Watching cartoons help adults like me to have a breathing room from all of this reality. I hope that makes sense to a lot of you.

    Definitely. Adults will always have kids inside of them. For me, being an adult can't stop me from watching cartoons. From time to time, we have to give a break to ourselves and forget about the real world. Sometimes, we can get good lessons from watching cartoons that we can apply to our own lives. It can even be our way to make us laugh even for a while when the things around us can't make us happy anymore.

    Well, I do sometimes! Simpsons is so entertaining, the humor I think is adult oriented. I find most cartoons on Nick Jr. and Disney a bit irritating.

    Of course! Adults watch cartoons to relieve stress in everyday work. Cartoons make an adult like me to feel young and happy. Watching cartoons also brings back memories of our childhood and it is a good way to bond with our children. When we watch cartoons, we talk with our children and we spend good quality time with them. So, I believe adults do watch cartoons even nowadays.

    Nowadays not much really. It doesn't bring me any thrill and excitement anymore compared to when I was a kid.
    And I know there are a lot of incredible and intellectually-engaging cartoons out there so that's kind of sad.

    Yes, Adults do watch cartoons. I am 24 now I still watch cartoons like Tom and Jerry, Mr. Bean and Sponge Bob. Tom and Jerry my favorite cartoon since my childhood. Watching cartoons like Tom and Jerry, and Mr. Bean helping me to release my stress and be more pleasant. In my opinion, cartoons create the feeling that life is so simple and easy.
    Still, at this time cartoons are the best option to relax and to laugh.

    Even at the age of videogames cartoons plays an important role in the life of both children and adults. I often watch the old cartoons that I enjoyed in my childhood.

    For me yes, most of the adults I know still watch cartoons, and I watch cartoons because I enjoy it and I feel like I am a kid again, and there are some cartoons that it is not only for kids but also there are cartoons for adults as well, it shows that in this cartoons for example the Family Guy, The Simpsons, etc, this cartoons aim for adult audiences, it shows in this cartoons that they illustrate some lives of the adults in their story.

    Not as much as I used to, but I'll still watch the old reruns of The Simpsons sometimes (not the newer episodes as they've kind of gone downhill in my opinion. Big Mouth on Netflix is specifically made for adults rather than kids, and it's hilarious.

    Considering that I am a 29 year old male who has binge watched the original running of Animaniacs and am now working my way through Tiny Toon Adventures, I would say so! There are many cartoons out there for different demographics (both adults and children alike) and what you watch really depends on your personal tastes. Myself, I watch both adult (for adult humor) and children (for slapstick or hidden adult humor) cartoons.

    I still very much enjoy cartoons, it's funny. Cartoons aren't childish for me it's general in my opinion and even adults can relate to it than children sometimes. I often like to watch old cartoons and when I do, I discover things I never noticed in the same cartoon as a child (especially the use of pun) and I understand it better. Recently I've watched Ralph Wreck It, Moana, Kubo, Captain Underpants, Boss Baby, Zootopia and I did enjoy them all.

    It is normal for adult people to watch cartoons, as a simple way to relax and get out of reality. Besides, there are very smart and modern cartoons that show us today problems and situations. It is also fun to watch with children and sometimes remember our cartoon generation.

    Even as an adult, I still love watching cartoons. Spongebob Squarepants is one of my favorite cartoon to watch too. I love a lot of cartoons from the 90s or early 2000s. I love watching Rocko's Modern Life, Cow and Chicken, and many others.

    Yes, adults watch cartoons. People of all age groups enjoy the comic cartoons and animations. This proves that cartoons are not only for kids but for all. Cartoons effectively convey social messages with a touch of humor. The cartoons that have happy endings instill confidence in the minds of those who watch them.

    I think all adults should carve out some time to watch cartoons because they help to alleviate the stresses of everyday life by temporarily taking our attention away from all the "have to's" in our lives and the laughter derived from watching cartoons is actually beneficial to our overall health.

    Apart from emotional memories everyone has from its childhood favorite cartoons (and that could answer this question alone), we must remember that any cartoon is primarily based on a script, and we are used to basic rules for screenplays as they are the same for any target:
    You have a hero who will relentlessly pursue a dream/goal, face challenges to get there and most likely will succeed. Anyone can relate to that!

    Along with that, cartoons tend to use a lot of comedy and parody in many forms, and humour is a very popular genre on tv/movie industry, as anyone can appreciate its sarcastic premises.

    So, a cartoon has a lot of familiar
    stuff going on with the added comfort of being harmless fun: It won't (probably) mess with controversial topics and serious life questions. If it does, will be in a very light way.

    Mix that with a well constructed and interesting character/premise and it's easy to understand why it's still so fun to watch cartoons as an adult!

    Surely Adults watch cartoons not just to relieve stress but Cartoons can make an adults feel young and reminds them lots about their childhood. Besides Adults still have one or two things to learn from those cartoon movies.

    Now what if you got the chance to travel to a parallel world that has none of these remainders? A parallel world where no one could get harmed and where no problems similar to yours exist forever. Adults also watch cartoons because the experience sends their minds to this parallel world. In other words the person escapes from reality as long as he is watching a cartoon movie and as a result he good feeling for a while. Movies does the same thing to the mind, They allow it to escape to a parallel world that helps it forget its problems but because movies seem more realistic than cartoons then can actually end up making a person feel worse.

    Adults watch cartoons also. Yes, I've known a lot of adults who loves to watch cartoon and count me in. Cartoon shows is for all ages, it gives entertainment. Watching cartoon makes me reminisce my younger days, my elementary days that all I have in mind is games and have fun. A lot of lesson also I learned from watching cartoons that I can pass to my siblings.

    Cartoons are not only for children, there are cartoons that has good lessons about life. For example Tom and Jerry is one of the oldest cartoons that shows that regardless of being arch enemies they sometime become good buddies. In real human life most of us have friends and enemies.

    Absolutely Yes! Watching cartoons makes me feel I'm less older like before. It reminds me of my childhood memories and How little my happiness is. And cartoons make me more imaginative and creative. And appreciate little things.

    I believe so though I cannot say that all adults do so. I mean it really depends on the person's personality and hobbies. Moreover, people are way distinct when it comes to passion and interest, right?

    Absolutely yes! Watching cartoons can make you feel young. Me and my children love watching cartoons together. It’s our bonding time.

    As an adult, I prefer Anime shows (replacing cartoons) over regular TV shows. Why? Aside from it is a bit more entertaining for me because of its super power thing, it teaches us important moral lessons that we, although we are adult now, we can still apply it in our everyday journey in life. Just like Naruto, who taught me to "Never Surrender" despite of the difficulties he suffered until he achieved his childhood dream to be Hokage. Lastly, watching Anime is a part of my childhood which cannot be replaced by any shows.
