View Full Version : Kids programmes for adults.....

16-Oct-08, 18:46
I was on holiday last week and, late one night (after far too much wine) my hosts produced a DVD that they said I would find 'entertaining'...oo-er.

It was a digitally animated kids' cartoon I'd never heard of by a French company featuring Bernard (French pronunciation important!) the Polar Bear.

They're short cartoons about four minutes long. For the next forty minutes I genuinely cried with laughter.
Just to make sure it wasn't just the drink, today I watched a couple of clips on YouTube...still very funny.


Does anyone have any favourite kids cartoons that they will happily sit and watch as adults? And how many cartoons seem to work on one level for kids and another one for adults?

Hee hee! Great clip.:lol: I have never seen Bernard the Polar Bear.

I love Shaun the Sheep and keep looking to see when there will be a new series.

Most cartoons are written for an adult audiance as well as for kids. Bugs Bunny, The Simpson's and Ice Age etc.

I can easily sit and watch any of the Merry Melodies cartoons, which included Bugs Bunny, Yosemite Sam, Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote, Tweetie Bird...the list goes on! They still make me chuckle.

I used to watch The Flintstones as a child...when they were new and shown once a week in a Prime-time evening slot! I used to laugh then at things like Dino knocking Fred down, but I never realised just how funny some of the dialogue and contemporary send-ups really were until 20+ years later when I watched them with my own children. Hilarious stuff!

I also have to vote for the Road Runner. I can watch those over and over and still laugh. :)
