Matured Childhood

Cartoon characters are given adult makeovers that reinforce reality

Implications - While cartoon characters used to remain untouched by time, realistic makeovers bring them into the present and provide further tangibility for consumers that long for childhood nostalgia. Negating Peter Pan syndrome, grown up cartoons acknowledge reality and reinforce that childhood doesn't have to end, but can rather grow with them.
