** Bart encounters a former student of Springfield Elementary who's basically an adult version of him. He never matured beyond being a 10-year old prankster. He still lives with his mother well into his 20s, doesnt have a job, dresses like a child, and spends all his time and energy on childish pranks. Bart attempts to help him by getting him a job for Krusty The Clown, but what really turns him into a mature person is [[spoiler: getting a girlfriend]]

Added DiffLines:

** Greg was definitely this in his earlier years, refusing to work to support himself and mooching off other people for food. He's matured somewhat, but still prefers living in a van to a house and keeping a relatively unkempt appearance.

** Jack Spicer is a young man who is apparently in his early 20's there have been many signs of him acting very childishly. These hints include [[ ScreamsLikeALittleGirl girly screaming]], constant whining, and he was revealed to often sleep with a night light on. He also plays with the shen gong wu as if they were toys. This is mostly due to the fact that his rich parents did not raise him as much as they should as they often send him money in a vain attempt to make up for this.

* Homer Simpson from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'',. The most immature in the family, even more so than his son Bart. Especially after Season 10.

* Homer Simpson from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'',. The most immature Originally he was just a stereotypical BumblingDad but eventually developed into, in the family, even more so than shows own words "a drunken, childish buffoon". A combination of low intelligence, emotional immaturity brought on by a neglectful father and absent mother, and simple CharacterDevelopment turned him into a ManChild.

** Pinkie Pie acts like an excitable six year old and seems incapable of holding a serious conversation or actually reading the mood. She can be surprisingly neurotic and insensitive whenever events aren't as exciting as possible or if she isn't getting the kind of attention she wants.
** Rarity has drama queen tendencies that are usually PlayedForLaughs, but, at their worst, they'll cause her to lock herself in a room and refuse to come out like a petulant child and sometimes breaks down and cries with little provocation. Her younger sister can hold it together a lot better than her most of the time.
** Princess Luna tries to assert an air of cool authority, but it doesn't take much for the mask to break and this trope to come out. Endlessly enthusiastic about everything, she has a HairTriggerTemper and will sulk endlessly if she doesn't get her way. She is desperate for authority, but tends to resent it when it is actually given to her. Appropriately she gets along very well with children.

* ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'':

** Hugh Test, Johnny's dad has some traits of this as he freaks out over the smallest things, obsessively cooks meatloaf, and is revealed to secretly love video games
** Mr. Black and Mr. White are federal agents in their 30's yet they both love candy and are very irresponsible as whenever they screw up in something, they rely on the Test family to help fix whatever messes Mr. Black and Mr. White themselves create
** Most of the citizens of Porkbelly also fit into this.
