Wow, Blood. I never thought I'd say this but you are completely right... and I do mean completely. Though to you this probably means very little coming from me, I'll say it anyway.
I've always had a hard time fully justifying watching children's cartoons, to the point of me simply not doing it. It's not that I think they are bad, that is just about the opposite. I mean, look where I am. Look what I am posting- look at my fan-fiction for Pete's sake.
But there has always been a little something that nags me away from it. Since then I've gotten into enjoying House, Dexter, Weeds and recently; Homeland- thought I hear some people want me to start on Doctor Who. (Cough)
And while the shows that have inspired me will always be held dear in my heart, I know that simply watching them over and over is kind of... eh, for lack of a better term; a waste of time. The only bigger waste of time I could think of is watching 'new age' kid's cartoon shows. Currently- I do neither, unless it involves my little brother forcing me to watch something 'funny' on his show.
I respect the writing and satire of Gumball and the characters as well as the world of MLP, but I don't think they should be considered a respectable pass-time for adults... under any circumstances other than amusing/humoring younger siblings or children.
Also Blood, I don't remember exactly when you went on your religious journey or whatever, but since you've been gone there has been an explosion of Kid's shows dominating the internet- if you couldn't tell already. It has led me into more than a few pointless fights on the internet arguing the point of it all... but it seems like I am somehow the minority.
I don't know when this happened, but I'm almost intimidated by it. If it's this now, what could it possibly be in five years? I'd love to discuss this more, but there is a time and a place for every wall of text, and this one is running Its course.
If you want to speak more on this subject that I am incredibly interested in, hit me up... sure, I won't be holding my breath here but it would be interesting to hear your side of this to say the least.
