5 Times That Cartoons Were Too Real About Adulthood

When your teenage years are over and it’s time to say hello to living on your own, paying bills & doing your own laundry, there’s nothing that you’ll miss more than your childhood. But even if you’re an adult, cartoons can understand the struggle when no one else does. Here’s 5 times that cartoons spoke nothing but the truth about the pains of adulthood:

1. Adventure Time

2. Daria
