I think the only children shows I even see are those on PBS... which are pretty clean.. so Which animated shows aimed at children use crude humor?

Prejudice from "fans" doesn't help. Some people act as if jumping to conclusions counts as exercise.
Animated series generally take quite a while longer to produce than live-action series, despite costing less. Announcing it now doesn't mean it'll be out any time soon unless they're going the South Park route, and there's no reason to believe that.
Just because a series is animated doesn't mean it's aimed at children and even if that's the target demographic, that doesn't mean it won't appeal to adults.
And they're right; they need to appeal to a younger generation since the existing fans are literally dying off.
Very few us of appreciate Trek in all forms, certainly not enough to sustain the entire franchise. Discovery was aimed at moviegoers who enjoyed the Abrams films. The Picard series is squarely aimed at second-generation fans. Starfleet Academy can bring in the YA market. Lower Decks is CBS' answer to The Orville. Cartoons available outside CBS All Access (perhaps on Nickelodeon) might bring in an even younger crowd.
No single Star Trek series can appeal to everyone but it seems the goal in offering such a variety of material is to ensure there's something out there for as many Trek fans as possible.

Well....Star Wars, in hindsight, easily transitioned to both live action + animation. However, they did so by making sure their animated series were good enough. Derpy Kurtz better try for the same.
