Default Why don't grown women like cartoons??

T all,
The above may be a very over generalized statement, however, in my life the grown ladies shun the Toons. I can be watching Sponge Bob, Fanboy and Chum Chum or a plethora of other neat stuff including old Homer Simpson. I must add here that I am 59 years old my two sons are in there 40's. We can be watching this stuff with the grandkids and be having a real enjoyable time. It just seems when the daughters and my wife walk in the remote is swifty transferred to the ADULTS in the room. The females.
I had to watch the Simpson movie almost alone as well as Ice Age and the movie with Billy Crystal as the eyeball.
I love the fabulous deep rich colors on the big plasma and marvel at the imagination of the people who create this stuff. You just watch and rest and do not have to think. Kinda like fishing without all the preparation.

Anyone else out there have this situation at home?

Going on 60 and still loving cartoons -- Tad

Odd. The wife likes Sponge Bob, those egg heads etc. I don't. Last cartoon I got into was Roger Rabbit, and Jessica Rabbit was definitely a big plus.

Unless any animated episode of anything has "butters" in it, i cant watch it with said company.

Also if your girlfriend will watch stooges with you, get a ring on the fing, shes a keeper.

You got it, a Stooge lover with two X chromosomes is a real rarity.

As it happens, my sister (who at 50 years old would qualify as a "grown woman") is a MAJOR cartoon freak- we were raised on Tex Avery, Chuck Jones, Bob Clampett, Max Fleischer... she can still recite lines from just about any Droopy cartoon ever made. "Kissed a cow." I note that her degrees are in math and mechanical engineering, so maybe that explains it.

I suspect that it is encompassed in the saying " Girls grow up to be women, boys grow up to be big boys"

THe hell with it - they don't know what they are missing!

We watch The Simpsons, King of the Hill, and Futurama (my favorite) every week. But neither of us can stand some of the kids cartoons like sponge bob.

It's just not true. My wife has more time for cartoons than I do. She's always introducing me to new ones, such as 'The Life and Times of Tim'

Not that I dislike cartoons, I just get a bit impatient with the increasing plethora of stuff that is aimed at a short attention span, so I often select them out.

707,
I forgot about Futurama. I really like those critters. Even the new show Sheen which is a spinoff of Jimmy Neutron. Like I said it is not necessary the content I just marvel at the far out color schemes.
Before the Simpsons no TV show every had pastel purple, lime greens, and bright yellow in one scene. HD on the big plasma really comes alive with those color combinations. And no hydro in more than 30 years.

There is no telling what 20 more years of technology will do for video. They will not even need human actors for major flicks.
Just got through watching Entourage on HBO.

I loved the Simpon episode where Homer gets sucked into a 3D virtual world in his closet... well cool

They don't like em because they're not 12 - 14 year old boys.

I fake 66 with the best but really, I'm 14.....

It's the wacko kinetic playfulness that connects with the fellas. Doesn't do the same thing for most females.

Studies in obsession are my favs - get the waaaaabit!
