Cartoons are mindless entertainment for any age, light hearted and amusing. I watch them with my 10 year old and still laugh out loud at some of them. Some of the humor is geared to adults and goes right over the heads of kids.
I like: Spongebob, Teen Titans, Gravity Falls, Penguins of Madagascar, Back at the Barnyard and some 90's toons like Angry Beavers and Rocko's Modern Life.
I'm far from immature. I have a job that puts me squarely into high stress literal life and death situations (other lives, not necessarily mine) and the news etc is just too real for me sometimes because of it. If I'm not watching horror movies or comedies or catching up on Game of Thrones and some other night time dramas, I'm all over the toon channels seeking to give my mind some relaxed fun.1

I actually think the adults who believe that are just insecure of their own self-worth. Does rejecting certain actually positive and not harmful things that you'd like make you a happier, a better individual? Is saying "oh I'm too old for that kind of thing so I'm disinterested by principle" actually honest with yourself... or are you just abiding arbitrary rules that prevent you from being yourself?
I think what truly makes one mature is that one knows what they like, and they are okay with it, and accept it.
For example, I do think anyone who claims that `Inside Out` is "just a kid movie" actually just isn't capable of comprehending the psychology that is portrayed in that movie. That movie is amazing, and it portrays the value of human life, the complexity of our thoughts, the origin of our behavior and how our feelings alter that, and most importantly that how our emotions and our memories shape us into being who we are.2
