** Most fans of the series agree that the seventh season has been by far the grimmest and deepest yet. [[spoiler: The miniseries ''Stakes'' is primarily about Marceline coming of age. She's confronted with five evil foes from her past whom she has to defeat, and there are plenty of heartbreaking flashbacks of her childhood. ]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' manages to be this and DenserAndWackier simultaneously. Season 1 took fairly realistic, lighthearted SliceOfLife plots and contrasted them with the surreal, wacky world of the show. From season 2 onwards, however, the humor got much darker, [[Radar/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball raunchier]], and less subdued, Gumball TookALevelInJerkass, the plots started to become dark deconstructions of common sitcom tropes, and from season 3 onwards the show introduced an actual story arc involving a genuinely dangerous villain and [[spoiler: the idea that the universe itself is sentient and controlling the world.]] At the same time, it also [[GrowingTheBeard became much funnier as a result]], and it never takes itself seriously in the same way that the darker episodes of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' do.

** The Nickelodeon series is in-between, being more serious than the 80s one but lighter than the 2003 one. Though, some episodes from the third and fourth seasons do give the 2003 series the run for its money, with the presence of the Triceratons and Shredder becoming Super Shredder.
