:::I'm neutral about this page's existence.

:Well, if you're putting it that way, then I'd add entries like how [[Reynold]] is treated like a child in [[Commandos in the Classroom]] and only drinks Warm Jenkins in [[Decemberween Dangeresque]]. Or how [[Coach Z]] goes to juvenile prison in [[Play Date]] and is tried as a minor in [[Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 17.2]]. Or how [[Strong Mad]] acts throughout Play Date. Or how the [[King of Town]] acts like a defiant teenager in [[I Killed Pom Pom]]. Basically, any time one of the grown-ups suddenly starts acting like a child for humor's sake. I wouldn't know much about kids pretending to be adults since there aren't many [[children]] in these cartoons. -- [[Special:Contributions/68.37.43.131|68.37.43.131]] 22:44, 21 December 2018 (UTC)

I'm with anonny on this one. The concept is too vague and at least partially covered in Ages of Characters. And, frankly, of the three examples on the page, none really strike me as "confusion" of any sort (the best I can say is the word "kids" in the slumber party example, if you take it too literally). If you really wanted to keep this page, L.U.R.N. would be far and away a better example than any of these, as would Marzipan's letter in A Decemberween Mackerel. --Fourth of Jay (Fireworks!) 02:28, 20 December 2018 (UTC)
