* To a lesser degree to the previous shows above, ''WesternAnimation/WabbitALooneyTunesProduction'' also has a broken base regarding the style of the show. Half of the fanbase like the fact that the show is returning to the slapstick nature of the original ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' classic cartoons, while the other half of the fanbase don't like the new designs of the characters, especially Yosemite Sam and Foghorn Leghorn.

* Fans seem completely split over ''{{Thomas The Tank Engine}}'s'' shift to CGI animation. Many fans find it a complete betrayal to the original model series, or a necessary move that opened up more potential for characterization and flexibility story wise.

* ''BrokenBase/SouthPark''



* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':
** There are two main views on ''South Park'': either it really [[GrowingTheBeard hit its stride]] when it moved from a show comprised solely of [[BlackComedy crude, shock-value humor]] to one focused just as much on social/political commentary, or it completely [[JumpingTheShark went to hell]] by turning into an AuthorTract. The fandom became even more fractured as latter seasons began incorporating season-long story arcs. The thing with ''South Park'' is, though, that it can sometimes be as polarizing to its fanbase as it is to people in general. Combine that with [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters a town full of people]] and the tendency for [[NegativeContinuity things to stay relatively the same despite earth-shattering events]], and you end up with a show that can have half its fanbase loving how it's using a character/joke/plot/etc., and the other half ''hating'' it, meaning the whole thing is constantly a Broken Base, over any number of issues from any given episode.
** Believe it or not, Cartman has been a victim of this in later years by the same fans. Yes, a good fan base loves Cartman because he is funny as hell and the show would not be the same without him, but some viewers claim that Cartman's ComedicSociopathy was exaggerated into him becoming an asshole extremely callous and lack of feelings with his friends and even family, and would not be very strange call it a challenge as TheScrappy in his humor becoming in DudeNotFunny. Many people hate Cartman by episodes like the end of "Kenny Dies". He is mostly hated by Kyle's fans.
** A similar case would be Cartman's fight between him and Wendy. Several fans of the series (even fans of Cartman) felt comfortable that Wendy would have won in the fight with him. While there are other fans who hated her even more since she won.
** And let's not get started on "You're Getting Old" and "Ass Burgers". Several fans weren't happy with these episodes for being overly dramatic, derailing the characters (especially Stan), and ultimately led to absolutely nothing but an excuse to bash Stan and the audience at the same time.
** The existence of anime-style fanart and the ShipToShipCombat in the fandom itself have caused further splitting of hairs.
** A lot of characters have been this for the show, as well:
*** Butters was probably the first example. He went from EnsembleDarkhorse when he was a side character to being hated by a lot of fans due to his becoming one of the main characters, and his perceived {{Flanderization}}. Nowadays, he's used less often, but more effectively.
*** Kyle went from this JerkWithAHeartOfGold with traces of TheWoobie to a DesignatedMonkey and a {{Foil}} for Cartman. Some fans do not like his Designated Monkey status, while others are annoyed by his newfound obsession with stopping Cartman. Some also blame him for stealing screentime away from Stan, while some others are happy to see him focused on more often.
*** Then there's Cartman himself, and whether his antics are still funny or if his actions starting in "Scott Tenorman Must Die" rendered him beyond sympathy and likeability.
*** Randy Marsh's increased role is either met with amusement or irritation, some going as far as to say that Randy's bone-headed attitude has helped run the show into the ground.

** ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeRenegades'' is also a source of contention with fans with some finding it to be an interesting reinvention and origin story for the franchise and others loathing it because its series premise, with Duke, Scarlett, and co. being framed for crimes they didn't commit by COBRA, made it basucally an {{Animated|Adaptation}} SpiritualAdaptation of ''Series/TheATeam'' (not helped by its versions of Roadblock, Flint, and Lady Jaye being {{exp|y}}ies for BA Baracus, Colonel Lynch, and [[Film/TheATeam Lt. Sosa]] respectively).

** ''Franchise/GarbagePailKids'' fans can't agree whether the ''WesternAnimation/GarbagePailKidsCartoon'' is a decent adaptation of the trading cards or if it's just as bad or even worse than ''Film/TheGarbagePailKidsMovie''.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Gems [[AmbiguousGenderIdentity genders]] are a tough topic in the fandom. There are those who believe they have no physical sexes but are female gendered while others believe they don't consider themselves female but use female pronouns. There are arguments on both sides but debates can be quite aggressive.
