Guided by Kluckhohn and Strodtbeck’s Values Orientation Theory, this paper examines the cultural differences between China and the United States in terms of how the Chinese and the Americans view humanity, education, kinship, love, and friendship based on the TV series Young Sheldon. Due to the differences in historical origins and ideologies between China and the US, people’s perspectives contrast sharply in many ways. Recognition of these differences helps both nations seek common ground while reserving distinctions, pursue mutual understanding and respect, and establish win-win partnerships in more sectors.
