    You are too literal. That was not the implied question.

    Yeah, the cartoon connection to mental retardation was kind of a secondary question.

    The first question was about when it is too old to watch anime, which when spoken by those who do not speak Japanese, refers to only Japanese and Japan-style animations. Most of the 'cartoons' that come from Japan and to out to the world are not things like Dora the Explorer or Little Einsteins. Most of the 'anime' is for geared towards older kids and young adults, and could easily be watched by even older adults.

    Cartoons, in general, are more varied. A lot of them are geared towards school-age kids, but with some intended for very young children and some being for teens and adults only (Family Guy and such). Though it would be odd for an adult without a young child to watch Dora the Explorer regularly, there isn't necessarily anything mentally wrong, and I'm not going to be all judging them for being too old or something. But it isn't odd for an adult to be watching those TV-14/MA cartoons because that's kind of who they are intended for.

    I sometimes watch cartoons, but it's usually when i'm high. I don't see anything wrong with liking cartoons. I love disney movies.

    I think they should stop when they feel it is wrong or embarrassing, but obsessive fans, who insist on sharing when others have shown no interest in anime, should stop immediately.

    I'm over 40 and still enjoy watching Slayers, You're Under Arrest, Ah My Goddess and even Adventures of the Mini-Goddess, but I would never insist anyone watch or have a discussion about them.

    In a world where vampires sparkle, why limit your choices when it comes to entertainment.

    Sure some of the forum has no interest, and some have something against anime, but there I those I know who do like it, and are hiding because of some embarassment nonsense...

    Adults who ask ignorant questions. How old is TOOOOoooooooo old?

    It's really annoying that nearly everyone who hears the word "Anime" seems to just think about Pokemon, Digimon, Naruto, Dragonball Z etc. . It get's especially hilarious if they are typical hollywood-action-movie-watcher who usually are more interested in effects than in a intelligent story, but they tell ME I'd be childish because I watch animes. -_-
    They say I only think in form of crunching numbers.....

    could watching cartoons be a sign of mental retardation? or some psychological disorder?
    So long as its not a show for small children, like teletubbies, there is no problem with cartoons.
