You’re never too old to enjoy cartoons, especially if you have children that enjoy them. Many parents today grew up with the first or second generation of the very same comic and cartoon characters their children now enjoy, so it makes sense that they would continue to be fans! Don’t discredit newer shows, though. You might be surprised to find something new that you enjoy just as much as your old favorites.
Take, for example, the cartoon Ben 10. It may not have been around thirty years, but it is still a favorite among contemporary parents. The show is similar to many
superhero storylines they’ve seen before—Good Guy has special, secret skills to help him fight the Bad Guy. This time, though, there is a science-fiction element to the
premise. Ben 10’s skills come from a device called the Omnitrix, which allows him to evolve into various alien species. This is a story that many comic and cartoon fans
haven’t seen before!
If you’re a parent whose child enjoys the show, maybe you should sit-in and watch it together some time. You might be surprised by how much you’ll enjoy it. And, then, the next time your son asks you for a new Ben 10 shirt, maybe you’ll consider buying one for yourself, too!
