Let's talk about our favorite media that's mainly targeted at children

Disney movies, cartoons, games and even toys/collectibles in general

The genre itself, the adult fanbase andthe possible stigma around it can also be discussed.

I've really been enjoying children's cartoons from the last few years. They're really making an effort to include adult jokes and interesting plots (probably for the sake of parents who are sick of watching Peppa Pig on repeat). I don't get people who are obsessed with Disney, though.

I've loved dolls my whole life and I've considered buying some second-hand Monster High dolls so I can repaint them and make them little wigs/clothes.

>I don't get people who are obsessed with Disney, though


I would'nt say I am obsessed (Like Baylee Jae or whatever is her name, for example), but at least for me, I really like the animation. Both 3D and 2D, I guess especially 2D. I must admit most of their movies are very predictable and well, kinda stale tbh, but I still enjoy them as silly fun when I am having a lazy afternoon.
I guess some people get obsessed because of: 1- Nostalgia 2- Beautiful animation/visuals 3- Comfortable, cute stories with obvious happy endings 4- (Usually) Good, fun music

On another note, I loved Dreamworks circa Prince of Egypt and Road of El Dorado (one of my favorite animated movies, btw Tulio is my husbando). Too bad they kinda fucked it up, now. It's always a hit or miss, and the misses are growing more frequent.

I am unironically excited for Olaf's Frozen Adventure and Frozen 2 :')

Frozen merchandise everywhere is kind of annoying, though.

I loved frozen, but having a three years old niece made me so sick of it. I'm probably still going to watch it though

Hah, I can imagine! Gladly my toddler nieces don't live in the same state as me, so I see them only at family reunions.

i consider myself an animation fan, i make an effort to see every animated feature film that comes out, i keep track of all the major studios disney, DreamWorks, sony, as well as some of the lesser known studios, i keep track of every film as soon as its announced so you can imagine my disappointment when it ends up being cancelled like the movie Larrikins from dreamworks was going to be an musical set in australia, or Me and My Shadow which was going to have some elements of 2d animation which i was looking forward to.

i wish tv animation was fully produced in their home country instead of being shipped off to korea for their cheaper labor.

im currently into miraculous ladybug a french animated show about 2 superheroes who don't know each others identities and one is in love with the others civilian form while the other is in love with the others hero form. though thats not the main plot (right now at least) it really appeals to my fangirl shipper heart. season 2 is currently airing now and so far its much more interesting and better than season 1.

Oh! I like the designs of Miraculous and its concept, but I feel like I am too old for "monster of the week" formula and no actual plot development, it bores me. Does season two changes that?

Anonymous 1519

>>1517
well there are only 3 eps out so far and they are still 'monster of the week' but they say this season will be made to be watched in an order unlike season 1 where you can watch any episode in any order, watch the first few eps see what you think. at convention panels they have spoiled the who will get some of the remaining miraculous that you will see in the origins episodes so i assume they will be given this season.

Ay anon, My kid loves it too. You know they make MAAAD cash, since every year they start the season with 5 completely new girls, and of course they all have new outfits, new weapons, new spells etc etc. And of COURSE all the little girls want it all. Lots of $$$ has been lost in the past few years.

Bit of a self blog but eh

I love an absurd amount of kids targeted media. Although it has gotten a bit awkward for me in recent years because of the surge of DDLG garbage. I'm not at all interested in that… lifestyle and I absolutely do not have any sexual feelings towards kids stuff. Ive become embarrassed of my hobbies because Im worried people will assume Im some fetishist

I think that as long as you dress and act as a normal, functional adult, most people won't think you are a fetishist, but merely a collector. So you are probably good.

Anonymous 1617

Most people would just accuse you of being infantile probably
(I've never actually met anyone who's openly into dd/lg irl, is it really that popular?)

I recently caught up on Steven Universe. Despite not being really that into the filler… I mean it's cute and expands on the world and characters, but sometimes gets tiring. But when it's good, it's really good.
Have a lot of feelings about the new arc and no one to talk to about it.

There are a few new shows I like but it just seems like a lot of them lack a certain charm cartoons from the 80's, 90's, and early 00's did. Whenever I hear about another one getting rebooted I always prepare myself for disappointment. I really like the new Ducktales reboot though.

Anonymous 2646

The Ducktales remake is good! It's the only 90s show remake that doesn't make me cringe

I'm watching Miraculous Ladybug as well but the writing feels so inconsistent lately and the creator's holier-than-thou attitude on Twitter makes me so annoyed

Been watching Tangled: The Series and it's absolute kino. Actual plot, dark storylines, lore, the best twist villain ever. Cute characters, a sense of story, fair share of action and emotional scenes, it's everything I could ever ask for in a movie spin-off series. I highly recommend it

Also Alan Menken songs.
The cast is overall just really talented.

Fuck I started watching the Adventure Time "epilogue" to the finale set to the outro song before watching the finale.

I stupidly realized, but now going to watch the end now.

The end of an era. It wrapped up so nicely while still being open-ended.

Does anyone still play neopets? I don't really play it seriously anymore, but I do my dailies every once in a while and feed my pets (even though they don't die).

My little pony is actually a really good show. I stopped watching it after season 3 because I didn't like what the adult fandom had turned into at that point, but now that the hype has died down, I'm thinking of picking it up again.

Disney movies are fun to watch Elsa is bae, but I'm not really a fan.
Looking at some of the older ones, it's extremely noticeable how Disney always tried hard to cater to the social norms at the time. While I generally appreciate the progressive sentiments in their later movies, I'm convinced Disney would put pretty much any message in there if they believed it's what will get them the largest profits.

Who knows, I bet they don't even have the balls to make Elsa a lesbian

Would Digimon Adventure be enjoyable to watch for the first time as an adult? Always been a pokemon gal, but saw pic related in a feels thread and now want to watch it.

This doesn’t answer your question but I saw this pic in the feels thread and I saved it too anon. It’s so cute, I want to hug it.

If you compare it to pokemon you'll be dissapointed. But its not a bad show

Anonymous 5237

>>5217
It's not really comparable to pokemon beyond "kids with mons", you can certainly like (or hate) both universes at once. I remember it being pretty cyberpunk for a child audience, they don't mess about with the "digi" bit of the name. Some of the animation is very repetitive, be prepared to skip through parts of it that you've watched dozens of times.

I still find it enjoyable as an adult.

I haven't ever watched Digimon Adventure, but I did watch Digimon Tamers and absolutely loved it. You need to be willing to give in to the 'kiddy' side of the series, but the show takes it's viewers seriously and balances the cyberpunk/friendship elements well.
