Top 10 TV Shows that You've Grown Out Of

I was inspired to make this list because I've been seeing older users (most of them in their late teens and 20s) obsessing over children's media so much, and kids' channels that are high on the Best TV Channels list. IMHO, I don't really think they should be watching kids' shows and instead watch stuff that's intended for their actual age demographic. I say this not just because you grow up and become an adult, but because sometimes people grow out of certain things. I should know this because when I was young I used to be so obsessed with cartoons. Now that I'm older I don't really have any interest in them anymore. Tastes change and it's just a natural part of life. I'm pretty sure most of the users on this site have grown out of some of these shows. Not saying some of them are bad or anything, it's just that they probably just couldn't do a whole lot for you once you got older.

Please know that this list is subjective and there's nothing wrong with no longer liking a show you used to like. Feel free to add whatever show you want as long as you've grown out of it/stopped liking it.

This list isn't just for kids' shows, but for teen/adult shows as well (those that haven't really aged well or were probably not even good to begin with). Feel free to add them too if you want.

The Top Ten

iCarly iCarly is an American teen sitcom that ran on Nickelodeon from September 8, 2007 until November 23, 2012. The series, created by Dan Schneider, focuses on teenager Carly Shay, who creates her own web show called iCarly with her best friends Sam Puckett and Freddie Benson.

ESPECIALLY after knowing the real reason for Dan Schneider's split with Nickelodeon.
*shudders in utter disgust* - Jasmine21064

One could pretty much say they've grown out of Dan Schneider live-action sitcoms in general. I know I liked some of his shows as a kid, but I've pretty much grown out of live-action kids sitcom comedies in general. It's especially grown out of me now that Schneider's split with Nickelodeon due to abusive harassment allegations. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Another show I used to love when I was younger. And we have people hating it just because it's cool. Why do people act so damn proud if they hate kids cartoons while they're over the age of 18? It's normal, not something to be proud of. You haven't achieved anything, so get off your damn high horse. - LemonComputer

This seemed cool when I was 13-15 years old, but now I see it for what it is, a poor man's version of The Simpsons (which is so much better), for people who have never seen The Simpsons! - DaWyteNight

This used to be my favourite show but now I find it kind of repetitive. - 3DG20

It's an adults show. It's for any age above 18. How can you grow out of it? I don't understand it. - LemonComputer

Veggietales VeggieTales is an American series of direct-to-video children's computer animated films created by Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki featuring antropomorphic fruits and vegetables in stories conveying moral themes based on Christianity
