* A very likely example, as ''WesternAnimation/OggyAndTheCockroaches'' was popular in India, that it influenced ''Rat-a-Tat'' (''Pakdam Pakdai'' in Indian), another pantomime cartoon involving two animals who are related, albeit very different, constantly being (horribly) pranked by a small but TerribleTrio at home. ''WesternAnimation/SylvesterTheCatAndTweetyBird'' became a victim to this as well, as Toonz Media (the studio behind ''Rat-a-Tat'') influenced it for ''Bunty and Billy'', albeit pantomime as well.

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' helped usher in an era of cartoons that aspired to have excellent writing, a great sense of continuity and consistency, smart humor, and a way to use tropes that had not been done before until ''Phineas and Ferb'' came along. Some of the cartoons that ''Phineas and Ferb'' has influenced include ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'', and even ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'' started the trend in children's TV of slapping a face on a vehicle and calling it a day. A trend that still pops up to this very day. Inspiring shows like ''{{WesternAnimation/Chuggington}}'', ''WesternAnimation/RoaryTheRacingCar'', ''WesternAnimation/JayJayTheJetPlane'', and ''WesternAnimation/JungleJunction'' (though in that series the characters are vehicle-animal hybrids). Though, [[WesternAnimation/TheodoreTugboat one of these instances]] actually did have the same producer.

* With the success of Creator/MichaelBay's ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' movies, Creator/{{Hasbro}} decided to hire a "creative steward" to reinvent its other big property, Franchise/MyLittlePony. The result was Creator/LaurenFaust getting the deal to produce ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' And as a result of ''that'', [[Creator/DiscoveryFamily The Hub]] is introducing more similar shows and advertising them as part of the same lineup as My Little Pony. Most prominently, and most obviously, is the new ''[[WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012 Littlest Pet Shop]]'', which shares a similar visual style and somewhat sarcastic but good-natured writing style. It hasn't achieved the huge success of ''Friendship Is Magic'', but it does have its fans and is developing its separate identity. The European-produced CGI cartoon ''WesternAnimation/FillyFuntasia'' is also this to an extent.

** The Creator/{{Netflix}} series ''Pacific Heat'' was slammed for blatantly ripping off ''Archer'' and doing a shoddy job of it.

* After ''WesternAnimation/SofiaTheFirst'' finally beat ''WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer'' as the most popular preschool cartoon, Creator/Nickelodeon decided to create shows that followed young girls who were able to use magic to help others with a special item such as ''Little Charmers'', ''WesternAnimation/ShimmerAndShine'', ''WesternAnimation/MiaAndMe'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/DorasExplorerGirls Dora and Friends: Into The City!]]''. Although the first two shows were successful with the target audience, the last two shows weren't as successful, with the latter show's failure having [[FranchiseKiller killed off the chances of Nickelodeon making any further Dora-related productions]].

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Flaming Moe's". The episode revolves around bartender Moe stealing Homer's idea for a drink recipe and renaming it the Flaming Moe. He even goes as far to rename his bar after the drink. His bar becomes a popular club spot, attracting even the likes of Music/{{Aerosmith}}. After Homer outs the recipe to the general public, dozens of bars, restaurants and carts sprout up ''on the same street'' with variations on the name- e.g., Flaming Meaux.
