*** The ''Equestria Girls'' spinoff, [[GrowingTheBeard beard-growing]] aside, is still relatively overshadowed in popularity by the main series in it's home territory. In Japan and other parts of Asia, it's the MorePopularSpinoff. While ''Friendship Is Magic'' has been considerably slow getting new material released in Japan (Season 3 is still yet to be released), ''Equestria Girls'' was a hit, as ''Rainbow Rocks'' and ''Friendship Games'' were released relatively quickly after the first film and well before their respective ''Friendship Is Magic'' seasons were ever aired. This move has received a ton of negative backlash from many Japanese fans, since the first three Equestria Girls movies contain [[DubInducedPlothole massive spoilers]] for the last episodes of Seasons 3, 4 and 5 respectively.

* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' has a huge fanbase of all ages in the United Kingdom, despite the UK branch of Cartoon Network skipping a few episodes due to their content. It helps that Brits enjoy wacky and surreal shows and the merch sells quite well in a lot of UK bookstores and comic shops.

*** Bushiroad attempted to invoke this with their adaptation new J-pop-style openings and endings for each season, an excellent dub with some bigger-name voice actors (Creator/MiyukiSawashiro and Creator/KikukoInoue, just to name two), and a little VarietyShow segment at the end. They put so much effort into it that one could easily mistake it for a Japanese production with unusually smooth animation (at least until some of the songs play untranslated). Unfortunately, as mentioned above, it didn't hit with its target demographic of elementary-aged girls, likely due to that market already being saturated with more popular domestic franchises see ''Franchise/PrettyCure'', ''Franchise/HelloKitty'', etc. The dub was also criticized for cutting out scenes for time and to use in the new openings, which caused a few plot holes, not to mention leaving a few of the songs undubbed. [[note]] There was a rumor going around at one point that Hasbro Studios offered to animate new intros and outros specially for the Japanese market, but the Japanese dubbing team declined. [[/note]]

** It's also huge in Hungary, where it's the top watched show on Netflix. The local dub is also held in very high regard. Hungarians love adult oriented animated comedies in general, the more vulgar and lowbrow the better -- even ''WesternAnimation/{{Brickleberry}}'' was hailed as a top ranking classic by many. In fact, this mentality even influenced their profanity-laden dub of ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'', though that one never caught on due to its cultural differences and more laid-back humor. ''Family Guy'' on the other hand is still a comedy juggernaut with a very vocal and protective fanbase.

** It too was popular in Japan - the first video of the series was the third-top selling anime video when it came out, and its soundtrack was the fifth-top selling anime CD of the week in Japan. Despite this, the episodes after Mumfie's Quest weren't dubbed.[[note]] By the time the 1998 episodes rolled around, Creator/ForteMusic had dissolved into Columbia Records Japan. It doesn't help that [[Creator/KeiTomiyama Scarecrow's Japanese voice actor]] had died of pancreatic cancer 3 years before, making Scarecrow his last role.[[/note]]

** It was rather popular in Nick's Japan branch, premiering in 1998 (dubbed in Japanese) when Nick Japan was launched, and ''finally getting cancelled'' around 2007-2008. (Please note that the show was put in reruns by then).

** The show is very popular in Poland, likely due in part to [[SuperlativeDubbing its very well-done Polish dub]] (occasional hiccups aside). That it's the first show to be listed if you look on MiniMini+'s website is a good indicator. In fact, it's so popular there that [[http://www.fge.com.pl/ they even have their own Equestria Daily!]]

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' actually has a Latin American following, with many fans of the show from that part of the world. You'll be likely to see comments, fanart, and more from these fans in the region, but luckily they're about the same amount (or a bit more) as their US counterparts. Also it is one of the fondly remembered Nicktoon in Vietnam, mostly due to Mr. Hyunh.

** Not a nation, per se, but the series also seems to be especially popular with the black community in its native Canada despite the main character being white.

A Princess Luna plushie is even featured in one of the music videos of Turkish pop star Aleyna Tilki.
