Kids Shows Are For Kids

Originally I was going to talk about a show my kids enjoy, Teen Titans Go, but as I worked on that I realized something about children’s programming and ended on a totally different topic entirely.

    Something that you failed to bring up in your review is that alot of the initial hate for Teen Titans Go! is that it replaced Young Justice and Green Latern two very good shows that were written for a older audience in mind, Also if I remember TT Go originally being advertised to the people who originally saw Titans and were expecting a return of the original series instead of 15 minutes of gags.

    I have watched cartoons meant for kids, and some I enjoyed them. but you bring up good points. College aged kids ARE the ones doing this because they are a new between, young enough to still be near the less adult stuff, but still learning about the adult world, so they essentially combine the two.

      You are right about the college age thing – that transitioning from kids shows to adult stuff. The original Powerpuff Girls came out when I was 19/20 and I loved it, but it was really the only cartoon I watched, having outgrown all the other new stuff. And while I still like the aesthetic of the original Powerpuff Girls and will still buy a nostalgic toy here and there, I lost interest in the show after the first season or two. I’ve not gone back and even watched the episodes I loved back then because I know it won’t feel the same.
