        Is Nostalgia the Reason for Adventure Time's Amazing Awesomeness? | PBS Idea Channel

        Adventure Time is an animated kids show on the Cartoon Network that is very popular - not only with kids, but also with full grown adults! Why would serious adults, including Mike's Mom, watch Adventure Time? We think it's because the show taps into our memories of childhood with nostalgia. However, this isn't the "I Love the 90's" kind of nostalgia that we normally talk about! We're talking about Romantic Nostalgia, which is a confusing emotion that mixes happy and sad, creating a powerful mix that hits you right in your gut. It adds emotional depth to an already great kids show.
