** The episode "Lisa Goes Gaga" is considered this as well.

** The episode "Lisa Goes Gaga" is considered esentially played out like a Simpsons-Lady Gaga crossover fanfiction. While there have episodes with celebrity guest stars before on the show, this as well. was literally 20 minutes of nothing but Lady Gaga having her ass kissed, which may have been great for her fans, but not to people who aren't really into her music. It's especially grating when you consider that some of the other famous iconic guest stars on the show like Music/PaulMcCartney, Creator/ElizabethTaylor, or Creator/KirkDouglas, only appeared in small cameo roles or parts that only took up one-third of the episode's plot. The episode rehashed a lot of jokes about Lady Gaga that have been done before (and done better elsewhere) and received some backlash from fans.

* Fans of the Mario cartoons are like this. Some fans of [[Series/TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow Super Show]] disregard the sequel series (one being disliked for the [[TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3 Koopa Kids and mostly taking place in the human world]], the other for the [[WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld cave man theme]]), others acknowledge the first two and ignore the third. Some acknowledge all three.

** Anything after {{the movie}} and {{uncancell|ed}}ation is often reviled and ignored, due to the original producers and writers leaving the series (including creator Stephen Hillenburg), and the series ultimately becoming a FranchiseZombie, especially considering that the movie was originally intended to be the series finale. In fact, ''WE'' have a [[JustForFun/SpongebobSquarepants Just For Fun page]] that pretends the latter seasons didn't exist.

*** Even fans of the movies disregard any [[ContinuityNod continuity nods]] that happen in the films that might imply that the movies are canon. The reason being that [[WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief they raise too many questions.]]

** ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls Equestria Girls]]'' got this from a large chunk of the fanbase for turning the ponies into humanoids and placing them in a HighSchoolAU setting. As a result of this, and misinterpreting showrunner Meghan [=McCarthy's=] statement that the movie would not affect the continuity of Season 4, these fans were unhappy when movie-original character Flash Sentry, part of what's seen as a RomanticPlotTumor by many, cameoed (in pony form) in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E11ThreesACrowd "Three's A Crowd"]], doing his job as Cadence's bodyguard. Although they were temporarily quelled by staff insisting his inclusion was an animator's decision rather than Meghan's, a second Flash cameo (in a speaking role this time) during [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E25TwilightsKingdomPart1 "Twilight's Kingdom"]] caused these fans to [[BerserkButton absolutely flip their shit]].

*** [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure "Magical Mystery Cure"]] is easily the most divisive episode amongst the non-Purist contingent, due to it ''shattering'' StatusQuoIsGod by having Twilight Sparkle ascend to become the fourth Alicorn Princess. A significant portion of the fandom prefer to deny it happened.

** Even Poof fans hate Sparky, Timmy's new magical talking fairy dog. There's also a new girl appearing in the next season and fans are not pleased. Instead of bringing back fan-favorites, they're demoting almost everyone to extras (including characters like Trixie and Tootie) and creating new ones to spice up the show.

* The continuity of Disney's classic characters (Mickey, Donald et al.) depends on who you talk to, given they show up in different time periods and appear in works aimed at different age groups.
** Disney's Direct to Video sequels and spin off cartoons of its movies are often disregarded by fans for reasons including resetting CharacterDevelopment, CharacterDerailment, and are generally found to be inferior to their source materials.
%comment% There is no need to list every individual cheapquel that gets disregarded. Also, if you're going to make an entry denying films from the Disney Animated Canon, don't. That "canon" is nothing more than a list of films, not a series of events that take place in a continuity, so listing that would amount to nothing more than Complaining About Films You Don't Like. Also, the Stitch anime is listed in Anime, as that is its proper medium.%
This list shows the last 10 events of 674. Show all.
