6 Essential Reasons Why Adults Like to Watch Cartoons
Have you ever wondered why adults like cartoons and are seemingly into anime seasons, such as “Attack on Titan” and even the all-time classic, “Death Note”? If you are an adult and like toons, you have nothing to worry about as you are not alone.
Even if you are a die-hard fan of kids’ cartoons, there is nothing wrong with you! I would rather say “Welcome to the Club”. The truth is that cartoons are awesome. But if you are an adult and still watch Mr. Bean or Pokemon, you might have been labeled as weird.
Why you might ask, we are as clueless as you are. Perhaps, people hold the mainstream conception that cartoons are meant to be for babies alone. Well, they are wrong. Cartoons are for everyone, irrespective of their age and gender.
Read on to learn about the best reasons adults, including you and I, watch cartoons and why more adults should indulge in watching cartoons and improving their outlook on life.
Cartoons Represent Art
When I say that cartoon is art, I refer to all sorts and kinds of cartoons here, ranging from old-school Donald Duck, Looney Toons to the modern times’ anime genre of Monster and Attack on Titan. If you appreciate art, you naturally appreciate cartoons and comic books.
Cartoons are also better than live coverage. With the availability of different cartoon and anime platforms, you can watch your favorite cartoon series whenever and wherever you want. Cartoons never get old. Take the Looney Toons, for instance; they have been around for ages and are still as entertaining as day one.
No Long Episodes
We, as adults, don’t usually have much time to waste on long dramatic episodes. This is why we turn to cartoons and have our fair share of entertainment. As an adult, you are more likely juggling two jobs while trying to get to college.
Do you have the time to watch a one-hour-long show on the television before hitting the pillow? I reckon the simple answer to this question is – No. With certain cartons, such as the “Robot Chicken”, you aren’t wasting tons of time on getting your share of entertainment.
The fifteen-minute episode suffices to freshen up your mind while providing you with the much-needed entertainment for the day. That said, by watching cartoons, you are in control of what you are watching and when you want to stop. You can always resume wherever you left without ruining the fun and entertainment.
Cartoons Are Cathartic
Cartoons invoke all kinds of feelings into us. It wouldn’t be wrong to state that they are cathartic to the core. We can relate and empathize with the characters, which allows us to let go of surplus, and often bottled-up (unbeknownst to us) feelings and emotions.
Do you feel skeptical about it? Okay, let us talk about the Disney cartoons of “Frozen” and tell me honestly, didn’t you feel emotions dwelling up inside of you when Elsa turned her sister accidentally in a block of ice?
Despite being thick-skinned humans, we cannot help but feel an emotional connection with cartoons. For instance, “The Lion King” moved everyone, and no matter how many times you have watched it, you always get all the feels from the beginning to the end.
Cartoons Impart a Sense of Empowerment
Have you watched the cartoons Peter Rabbit, the Power Puff Girls, Ninja Turtles, and Kung Fu Panda? It doesn’t matter how many times you watch them. They will always impart some sense of empowerment to the viewers.
A majority of these cartoons teach us to confront the bad, help our friends in need and distress, and rescue people in need. In other words, cartoons impart a feeling that makes us want to get up, grab someone, and kick their ass.
Depending on which cartoons you watch, typically, they also teach us the lesson of standing up for oneself and speaking up on what is right, even if it means going against the world.
There is Always Some Lesson
Believe it or not, but there are always some sort of lessons in cartoons. Sit back and think about the times when we were kids and remember the tiniest details from our favorite cartoon shows. You might have watched an episode of your favorite cartoons so many times that you can recite every single verse of the episode.
Cartoons usually carry some sort of lesson derived from history, geography, or a moral lesson, such as the moral lesson of poetic justice. Also, cartoons can help you break the ice at a social gathering as they teach kids and adults alike how to be good friends and social conductors.
It is always fun to know what cartoons have to offer and the variety of stuff they can teach and display.
You Just Want to Chill
Sometimes you just turn on the television to chill and relax while letting your mind wander off to some area that is unworldly. There is no better source than cartoons. Have you watched the cartoons Rugrats and Doug? We had a quality childhood, no?
There are times when we want to stay low, cut out all unnecessary drama from our life, and relive our childhood. Undoubtedly, some cartoons and anime series tell us complex stories. However, then there are the cartoons that allow us to remain calm, simple, and just go with the flow as we shut down our brain and immerse ourselves in a fun, light, and entertaining world of cartoons.
