Do you have any television programs that you might be hesitant to admit that you like? Is one of the reasons you don’t want to confess your admiration for these shows because they are geared towards children?
Don’t feel bad! Many adults secretly love kids’ shows. After all, they offer a fantastic escape from reality and, for a little while, they help us forgot the harshness of adult life. Many kids’ TV shows have elements of magic, family values, and life lessons, which we can relate to as grown-ups.
We grew up watching some shows that we are eager to share with our own children. Then there are programs with new characters, new storylines, and new adventures that hook us in. Here are 25 Kids’ TV Shows That Adults Secretly Love Watching Too.

Phineas and Ferb
Phineas and Ferb is a show that follows the story of two stepbrothers with a lot of curiosity about the world and how things work. Phineas is usually the one with ideas while Ferb (who usually doesn’t talk) goes along for the ride.
Adults get a kick out of the imagination that goes into making one of Phineas’s inventions, or perhaps it’s the friendship that these two brothers have. It could also be they love the characters and can’t help but repeat all the catchy phrases.
Girl Meets World
Girl Meets World is the spinoff series of Boys Meets World (a popular family show that ran in the ’90s). In this series, Corey and Topanga have two children: a boy and a young high school student named Riley.
What made this show good was it brought back all the characters we loved from Boy Meets World, but then added some new fresh faces that we couldn’t help but adore.
Riley faces some of the same problems her father dealt with in high school as well as issues that are more relevant today.
You know him, you love him, and his theme song will be stuck in your head for days. Yes, we are talking about everybody’s favorite living sponge.
SpongeBob has humor for kids and adults alike. Some of the jokes are aimed at adults, yet when kids get older they may have an, “A-ha, so that’s what they meant,” experience.
Spongebob also teaches lessons about forgiveness, friendship, and putting up with things that anger you, but it a funny way.
Good Luck Charlie
Good Luck Charlie is another show that went off the air (perhaps because Charlie got older). You may still be able to catch reruns or order DVDs on Amazon.
The show centers around high school student Teddy, who is making a video diary for her baby sister, Charlie. Charlie is a toddler most people can’t help but adore. She is awfully adorable (she is a toddler, after all).
Good Luck Charlie offers wholesome family entertainment, and the young Charlie has a personality that made many people want to keep watching.
Almost everybody played the computer game, “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?” It spawned a game show, television series, and comic books. In the game, Carmen was a world-renowned art thief, and it was your objective to find and capture her with clues given to you.
Now that Netflix has remade the series, Carmen uses her skills for good. She is still a thief, but she helps people instead of just robbing for the thrill of it.
