Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Good Luck Charlie}}'': Despite being the oldest sibling, [=PJ=] is very childish and immature for his age since he still watches kid shows, still believes in fairy tales, and is afraid of things that only children fear (such as clowns, the dentist, etc.)

* ''Series/RavensHome'': Despite having gotten older around their 30s, Raven and Chelsea have not matured at all since [[Series/ThatSoRaven their teenage years]]. They are very childish and immature single mothers who can't handle the responsibility and seriousness of being parents. In fact, ''their own children'' are practically the ones raising ''them''.

** It's hinted that a good deal of Shawn's childish moments was due to the strict upbringing by Henry; while he did have a fulfilling childhood that his dad was an active part of, he still missed out on opportunities to do things he wanted (his father heavily disapproved of superhero comics for how they make cops look). Furthermore, most acitivites are molded to serve as learning experiences for Shawn to become a cop. So it could just be that Shawn's childish acting out is a way to indulge in being free to do what he wants.

** The Fourth Doctor. One of the most dignified, mature and authoritatian Doctors of all - the Third - was immediately followed by probably the most blatantly childish and anti-authoritarian of the lot. He offers everyone sweets, plays with children's toys, doodles cartoons of people he dislikes, loves playing and running around and getting attention, tends to sulk when he can't get his way, and has childish CharacterTics that make him [[CreepyCute bizarrely cute despite being huge and imposing]]. He's sensitive and vain about his age, constantly lying about it to seem younger. He absolutely detests authority and is willing to go anywhere, do ''anything'' to avoid taking orders again.

** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'': [[TheThingThatWouldNotLeave Nico Saiba]] is 18, but you couldn't tell from the way she acts and dresses. She is a {{Troll}}, who decorates her room with TastesLikeDiabetes and grates on people's nerves with her [[ManicPixieDreamGirl cheerful]] [[PluckyGirl attitude]].

She is a {{Troll}}, who decorates her room with TastesLikeDiabetes and grates on people's nerves with her [[ManicPixieDreamGirl cheerful]] [[PluckyGirl attitude]]. Later parts of the story put a twist onto this as more of her act becomes ''pretending'' to be a [[ManChild WomenChild]] out of habit, love for trolling people and need to continue her reputation because she doesn't want people to know she grew up.
** Downplayed example in ''Series/KamenRiderBuild'': Sento Kiriyu is a serious adult rightfully called "hero of justice" as Kamen Rider Build. He is also a science geek with a massive ego, who tried to test his invention on people around him and he agrees with his friends that the more fitting version would be "narcissistic, conceited hero of justice".

* Lenny and Squiggy from LaverneAndShirley are this trope. While they do have some adult ambitions like getting girlfriends and starting a talent agency, they still have the same mindset as kids and often do childish things like drinking chocolate syrup and watching cartoons.
