How character designs and story are affected according to intended targeted audience

Ben10

Different Ben 10 designs appeal to different audience over the years.

In general, for pre school kids (Below 6), try to keep the character simple. Big facial expression (Big Eyes, Big Smile etc) makes it easier for kids to read what is happening. Keep camera movement to minimum. Less fast actions. Younger kids has less attention span. So normally one episode is around 11 mins.

For older kids (6 to 12), characters and story can be more complex. You can have more actions and camera movements. You also have longer time to tell the story. Around 22 mins.
