* ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'' a sequel to ''Disney/TheLionKing'', has sparked continuity issues. It acts as a midquel to the second movie, seeming like it's trying to cram as much into ''The Lion King 2's'' time gap as it possibly can while adding more magical elements not previously seen in the franchise. (Apparently lion cubs can acquire deadly roars from clouds in the sky now.) Disputes over the canonicity of this happen on a regular basis within the fandom. Early on, some fans even thought the show was going to write ''The Lion King II'' out of canon completely.

* Fans of the Mario cartoons are like this. Some fans of [[Series/TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow Super Show]] disregard the sequel series (one being disliked for the [[WesternAnimation/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. Universally though, the re-cut''Club Mario'' version of the ''Super Show'' is regarded as never existing.

* According to most ''[[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow Ren & Stimpy]]'' fans, ''Adult Party Cartoon'' '''never happened'''. It's rather despised for turning the BlackComedy and VulgarHumor of the original [[UpToEleven far beyond eleven]] to the point that [[CrossesTheLineTwice it crosses lines that were previously thought to be theoretical]], becoming [[DudeNotFunny completely disturbing]] in the process. You know it's bad when even the Games Animation episodes from the original show (which are often disliked by fans due to making Ren more of a {{jerk|ass}} than he already was) are considered masterpieces when compared to ''Adult Party Cartoon''. ''[[Recap/RenandStimpyAPC1x02RenSeeksHelp Ren Seeks Help]]'' ''especially'' gets this due to the large amounts of NightmareFuel on top of the previously mentioned issues.
** For that matter, the Games epsidodes themselves get this within the original series. Aside from the above-mentioned Ren [[TookALevelInJerkass becoming more of a jerk]], there's also weaker animation than in the Spumco episodes, and the fact that Creator/JohnKricfalusi [[OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight had no involvement in their creation]].

** The SequelSeries, ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', has a very mixed reception. It was first billed as a quick mini-series, then a single season, then multi-seasons ALL DURING PRE-PRODUCTION. Some see it as a faithful follow-up to the original series, while aothers do not. Fans take issue with either certain elements (the {{Steampunk}}/GangsterLand setting rather than MedievalStasis being most prevalent), the somewhat rapid establishment and changing of the LoveTriangle between first Mako/Korra/Bolin then Korra/Mako/Asami, and the characters being less compelling overall. There are some groups that deny the entire series exists, because they think it contradicts the established canon of ATLA (which is not true), their ships from the original series were officially sunk, and they think it is written poorly when compared to the original series.

** Most bronies pretend "The Mysterious Mare-Do-Well" never happened [[CluelessAesop due to how badly]] [[BrokenAesop it handled it's lesson on humility]] and how [[JerkassBall every character in that episode were uncharacteristically complete jerks]].

** The first episode of Season 4, "Princess Twilight Sparkle" has had some contentious developments. "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E1PrincessTwilightSparklePart1 Part 1]]" reveals the entire series up until that point has taken place within a year, which lead to such {{Continuity Snarl}}s and broke WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief over so much happening in so little time that most keep assuming it took palace over several years. "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E2PrincessTwilightSparklePart2 Part 2]]" for showing the confrontation between Princess Celestia and [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Nightmare Moon]] was over in minutes and before the latter did anything worse then briefly KO Celestia. Many ignore this since Nightmare Moon's [[FamedInStory in-universe infamy]] and Princess Luna's [[TheAtoner guilt over it]] [[FridgeLogic no longer makes sense]], in light of their doing so little, [[http://sonikku001.deviantart.com/art/Past-Sins-551713735 as parodied here]].
