    If we're talking about a 17-40 year-old who watches "Tom and Jerry"(level) everyday, then there is definitely a problem. I'm not exactly sure what the problem is though.

    Agreed!

    could watching cartoons be a sign of mental retardation? or some psychological disorder?
    Absolutely not. Even if it is childish, I'd say there is nothing wrong with tapping in to the lighter and more innocent side of life. However, have you ever watched a good anime? Like Akira or Memories or anything Miyazaki? If we're strictly talking about Japanese anime, it developed as a form of story telling as production for actual movies or films was very restricted. Therefore, the range of storytelling and genres are far and wide in Japanese anime. There are some incredible stories told in animation form in Japan. But not limited to just Japan. There are a lot of adult targeted animation out there. Ralph Bakshi is an american "cartoonist" or animation producer and artist, and he's created a lot of amazing adult targeted stories through them. Wizards is one of my favorite by him. There's a lot of amazing French animation as well: Triplets of Belleville, Fantastic Planet. Honestly, I find a lot of these stories far more intriguing and memorable and intelligent, then the stuff hollywood produces.

    Are you joking? Some anime story lines are pretty adult, depending on what you're watching.

    I like Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Scooby Doo, as well as more adult cartoons like Family Guy and American Dad, and that's not even close to the level of sophistication of anime.

    My mom is in her 50's and likes Courage the Cowardly Dog. My grandfather always liked Tom and Jerry and old Bugs Bunny cartoons, even when he was old.

    So I wouldn't worry about any of this too much if I were you, unless all you do is watch cartoons.

    Yeah it doesn't take a genius to figure out that the OP just has some personal vendetta against anime. If anyone needs to grow up, it's you.

    Anime usually tends to be created for an adult demographic.
    Cartoons usually tend to imply a younger demographic.

    While satire in cartoons has managed to bridge the gap in the form of Family Guy, South Park, The Simpsons, Drawn Together etc whose primary aim is an adult demographic. There are more certainly. Then I'd wonder at the audience for Anime which do have a mature audience in mind more often.

    Now the correlation here would imply whether that happens to be a viewing instrument in a persons lives that takes over their lives and is larger than life. Whereby their sense of reality is warped because of the addiction to anime. The answer is simple, everything in moderation. There are an abundance of extremes, much like computer gaming, when is the cut off for playing computer games. You'll find adults tend to be entertained by both animation and games and when it turns into the focal point. Then yes psychologically speaking there is an issue of addiction that would needs be addressed. Everything in moderation I suppose, because there is something that is being filled by such media, and it is a media of entertainment as much as the interface between viewing films and tv series alike. When you are in it, in the whole spending more time viewing said programs then yes there is a trance here. and the trance is induced by a release of stress and escapism from that which is real to the realm of that which is disproportionate to reality.

    Personally, I was never a fan of anime. Besides the crappy animation and hard to follow dialog, most of the shows seem like they try too hard to be "dramatic." They're like animated soap operas. That's just not my kind of tv, if you know what I mean.


    I want to make clear, I have nothing against those who are into it, it just isn't for me.

    I agree, there no set age limit on cartoons. some cartoons are intentionally made for adults.
