* The WB's short-lived ''WesternAnimation/BabyBlues'' was a failure mainly due to this trope, taking was a genial, family-friendly comic strip about the everyday hassles of parents raising two young children, and filling it full of dirty humor, innuendo, and adult-oriented plots, driving away fans of the comic strip while failing to bring in people who weren't.

* ''Manga/CrayonShinChan'' is an odd example. In it's native Japan, the anime adaptation is considered to be a ''[[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids family show]]'' despite the crude, raunchy humor. When the show received a GagDub by Creator/{{FUNimation}} in the west, however, it was marketed towards adults and had its raunchiness turned UpToEleven.

TheNewTens has seen the pendulum swing the other way, with comedy shows like ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' and especially ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'' learning from the mistakes of adult animation from the TurnOfTheMilenium by taking it's sophomoric humor a little more seriously, using otherwise lowbrow jokes as [[TropesAreTools tools]] for CharacterDevelopment and compelling drama all without [[ComedyGhetto sacrificing the comedy]]. They also did away with the callous attitude towards taboo subjects, such as abuse, depression and socio-political issues, and instead addressing them with [[SeriousBusiness at least a modicum of respect]] if not doing straight [[BlackComedy dramady]]. Both shows have seen rave reviews from audiences and critics alike and similar shows, such as ''WesternAnimation/FIsForFamily'', have followed their example (it helps that many of these shows are for on-demand services, meaning more lax creative control). Even ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty'', a feature film based entirely around swearing, drug use and ethnic stereotype humor had significantly more heart and attention to detail than, say, ''WesternAnimation/EightCrazyNights'' did thirteen years prior.

Overall, this thinking is just an evolution of AnimationAgeGhetto: animation may not be seen as exclusively for children anymore, but it is still seen as exclusively childish. Compare with AllAnimeIsNaughtyTentacles and RatedMForMoney. Contrast with [[AllAnimationIsDisney All (Kid-Oriented) Animation is Disney]].

* This trope might as well have originally been called "All Adult Animation Is Creator/RalphBakshi" for two reasons: one, when he was still making films, it was, as nobody was making animation for adults as noteworthy as him (relatively speaking). Two, the only others who were only aped the gratuitous sex and nudity, which Bakshi only included in his films as a form of rebellion. His gritty violence and themes of corruption and racism, however, all came from personal experience and are never played for laughs. To be fair, the only reason he got away with this is because he worked independently, a big part of the reason ''Film/CoolWorld'', produced by Paramount, plays this trope straight.

* ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty'' plays with this trope. The film succeeds in being as raunchy as it can be, but the filmmakers actually tried to show some depth with the characters and story.

* ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty'' plays Zig-zagged with this trope. The film succeeds in ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty''. There's plenty of CharacterDevelopment and a solid plot, but it still sold itself on being as raunchy as it can be, but the filmmakers actually tried first 3D computer-animated feature to show some depth with the characters and story.get an R-rating.

* One of the reasons why ''WesternAnimation/AllenGregory'' lasted very briefly was that it had so much vulgar, offensive, and tasteless content to the point that it alienated its target audience.
