* ''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'' [[CanonDiscontinuity out of canon completely]], though given ''The Lion King II'' had its own issues with continuity, among other things, [[BrokenBase there are some that would have preferred that]].

** However, there are some fans who consider the episode ''Paintings and Predictions'' canon, since it (more or less) shuts down the long-standing theory that Simba and Nala were actually cousins.

** Many fans like to pretend the ending, when [[spoiler:Stan got his memories back]], did not happen at all because that moment rendered [[spoiler:Stan's loss of memories and HeroicSacrifice] meaningless.
** Other fans act as if "Roadsite Attraction" as if it didn't exist, largely due to the fact that the episode was awkwardly tacked onto the final five episodes, it did not move the main plot forward nor made mention of very important aspects of the main plot, [[spoiler:Ford wasn't in the episode at all]], and the episode had what is often regarded as the most BrokenAesop in the series.

* 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]].
