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.
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.
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
I used to like this show as a kid, but rewatching it now it really hasn't aged well at all. In fact, it's a lot worse than I remember. Weird internet sketches that look like they were written by stoners, Sam constantly abusing Freddie which can get pretty uncomfortable at times, and don't even get me started on that unholy crossover they did with Fred (two awful Internet celebs collaborating). - DarkMatter1997
Victorious is an American sitcom created by Dan Schneider that originally aired on Nickelodeon from March 27, 2010 through February 2, 2013 . The series revolves around aspiring singer Tori Vega, a teenager who attends a performing arts high school called Hollywood Arts High School, after taking her ...read more.
I never even liked this show when it started, mainly because the writing sucked and the characters were so unlikable it was just painful. I'm pretty sure a lot of people out grew this show and moved on to something better. - DarkMatter1997
3 Hannah Montana
Hannah Montana, also known as Hannah Montana Forever for the fourth and final season, is an American musical comedy series created by Michael Poryes, Rich Correll, and Barry O'Brien which focused on Miley Stewart, a teenager living a double life as an average schoolgirl by day and a famous recording ...read more.
Many people have probably grown out of this by now (and they probably now wish they haven't viewed it considering how the main star is now a twerk-obsessed prosititute who looks like Gollum's hooker). - DarkMatter1997
4 Family Guy
Family Guy is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Griffins, a family consisting of parents Peter (Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Idiotic Son), and Stewie ...read more.
The only adult show I've added. I used to think this was the funniest thing ever but then I found stuff that was better, way better and way funnier and I was like "why bother with this? " I feel like this show has comedy backwards. All you see is a old pedophile acting weird and characters getting beaten and killed for no rhyme or reason. The first few seasons weren't really anything special but trust me when I say I'd rather watch them than any of the newer episodes. - DarkMatter1997
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
5 Teen Titans Go!
'Teen Titans Go!' is an American animated television series produced by Cartoon Network. The show follows a superhero group called the Teen Titans, and shows what happens when they go home and have silly adventures. This show is Cartoon Network's revival of the popular 2003-2006 American animated television ...read more.
I'll admit, I actually used to like the original Teen Titans but I don't really like it that much anymore (I'm not saying it's bad or anything, it's just that I've lost interest in superhero-related media), but one thing I know for sure is that 2010s kids are eventually gonna grow out of this abomination of a cartoon. - DarkMatter1997
6 The Cleveland Show
The Cleveland Show is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane, Richard Appel, and Mike Henry for the Fox Broadcasting Company as a spin-off of Family Guy.
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
I'll give this show credit that it promotes love and being nice, but now that I'm older and less religious this show just doesn't interest me anymore (I've already stated many times on my old account that religion isn't really for everyone. You can still believe in it but know that not everyone will). - DarkMatter1997
I love this show but I hate the new Netflix version.
Well I've seen some inprovement from you yeah it's a great show but sometimes you've grown out of it - BoyGenius234
8 Dora the Explorer
Dora the Explorer (2000 - 2015) is an American educational animated TV series created by Chris Gifford, Valerie Walsh, and Eric Weiner in which Dora goes on adventures with her friend, a monkey named Boots.
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
9 Barney & Friends

SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 18 years, and is beginning its 11th season. The show ...read more.
Not saying this show is bad, but many people (including me) started to grow out of it ever since it kept jumping the shark (no pun intended since this show is set underwater). - DarkMatter1997
It’s getting better, but I can see how bad episodes made you lose faith in SpongeBob.
Rugrats is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain for Nickelodeon.
Eh, it still holds up to me as a Nicktoon classic, but then again, I never really watched much of the episodes, so I'm probably not a big fan of it like others are. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
I still like this
I used to like this, but rewatching it now it's just pretty bland and boring (not to mention the ugly art style and the super creepy moments that make this show more deserving of a T.V.-Y7 rating. How this was rated T.V.-Y I will never know). - DarkMatter1997

Teletubbies is a British pre-school children's television series created by Ragdoll Productions' Anne Wood CBE and Andrew Davenport, who wrote each of the show's 365 episodes .
Disney1994 is again gonna be triggered by this but I still don't care (learn to accept the fact that people have different opinions already). - DarkMatter1997
Them monsters used to terrify me when I was younger. - LemonComputer
I think everyone grows out of preschool shows.
I love Teletubbies, though I'd have to be honest if I said that I don't watch it anymore. Yeah, it's a pre-school show that I'd look back on and say "Oh, I used to watch that show years ago. Good times". I understand that notion.
This also extends to most other cartoons and kids/tween shows. The only animated media that I take interest in is Anime and I'd rather watch something like Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, Westworld or a documentary off Nat Geo or Discovery Channel than any other T.V. shows. - CrimsonShark
