We here at Smosh love cartoons. There are a lot of kid characters that are fun to watch as children, but show signs that they have a lot of darkness in their soul. We used a time machine to see how all of this kids turned out after they grew up. Things didn’t turn out so well for them. Here are Cartoon Kids Who Grow Up To Be Troubled Adults.
