* On the show ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'', Monique went from having black dot eyes, to white eyes with pupils by the second season.
** Also, the characters had more movement in the first two seasons than in later ones. The animation also got smoother as time went on.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has cleaned up over the episodes, in subtle ways. One noticeable change is that unicorn horns now are a part of the head instead of being separate, and each individual unicorn's magic is colour-coded instead of being a generic faded colour. Another is that Applejack's freckles don't vanish when she runs anymore.

* The character designs in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' [[DependingOnTheArtist vary depending on the storyboard artist]] but even with the various differences in style there are still certain things that stand out. Overall, the characters are a lot rounder in season 2 than they were in season 1. Pearl's face is "cuter" looking and round instead of oval shaped.



* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' originally looked quite angular and cartoon-y, with simple backgrounds and rather basic coloring. It kept the same basic style, but subtly evolved to have smoother lines, much more detail, and more natural coloring.

** DonHertzfeldt's [[CouchGag/{{TheSimpsons}} couch gag]] parodied this trend to horrifying effect -- first Homer fiddles with a time-traveling remote that viscerally morphs him back to his crude 1989 model, then in a panicked attempt to undo the rewind he launches into a far future where he and his family are grotesque mutant caricatures that barely resemble their original selves.

** Episodes after the first movie had a brighter color palette. As the post-movie era progresses, the characters started getting less expressive, making their design less off-model.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'': In the second season, the characters' outlines were colored and now look a little more like how they appeared in the classic shorts.

For example, Bugs is now gray, and his body is taller and thinner. This is possibly in response to the massive backlash fans gave the creators who never stopped pointing out how "wrong" Bugs looked.
** Even Lola has gone through a little bit of change - between Seasons 1 and 2, her design became more rounded (to match the look of the other characters reverting to their traditional looks), she's now shorter than Bugs (much like her ''Film/SpaceJam'' version), she's much more curvy (her chest is notably larger in Season 2) and her dress changed from purple to cerulean.
** Also, the animation style in this season resembles ''WesternAnimation/TheLifeAndTimesOfJuniperLee''.

** The show zigzags this in regard to how baby ponies are drawn; the show has three separate designs for baby ponies, and tends to switch between then depending on how expressive they need to be. [[note]]The first baby shown, seen in "Mysterious Mare-do-Well" looks like [[https://derpiboo.ru/448969 a chibi-fied pony with]] BlackBeadEyes. Then, later on, the [[https://derpiboo.ru/448969 Cake Twins]] are introduced, with colored eyes and slightly less exaggerated proportions. Then things start to get weird: "Apple Family Reunion" shows Applejack as a baby... reverting back to the initial [[https://derpiboo.ru/1113365 black-eyed big-headed]] design. Then in "The One Where Pinkie Pie Knows", we see Applejack's birth certificate, which contains [[https://derpiboo.ru/1112050 another picture of baby AJ]] that uses a completely ''different'' design with large, fully-detailed eyes. Then "The Crystalling" shows [[https://derpiboo.ru/1076580 Princess Flurry Heart]] with the same large, detailed eyes. This could be chalked up to ArtEvolution, but then "On Your Marks" shows the Cake Twins again, and they still have their original designs.[[/note]]

* In the 90's British animated series "The Adventures Of Peter Rabbit And Friends" which would have two stories in one episode or sometimes a full length story in an episode based on the works by BeatrixPotter. The facial expressions for some of the animal characters started looking more expressive when it got to the later episodes starting on a full length episode based on Literature/TheTaleOfSamuelWhiskers. Most notable when the characters get upset or angry.
