* One of the more notable examples of this trope played straight is ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'', which is 90% CringeComedy. You can count the amount of jokes that are not [[RefugeInAudacity shock value]], [[NauseaFuel bodily function-related]] or at the expense of any kind of social/racial minority on one hand.

TheMovie, which even people who like the show hesitate to defend, can be best described as every negative stereotype of adult animation played completely straight and stretched out to feature length.

Unfortunately, because of this, most of the adult-oriented shows that followed in ''South Park'''s wake were similarly vulgar, envelope-pushing fare -- the most successful being FOX's ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. Thanks to creators following the example of these shows, people now believe that any western animation that isn't just kids' shows are either sitcoms and/or a raunchy cartoon, which is far from the truth. Thus, it's very hard for aspiring animators/creators to pitch animated shows without VulgarHumour and ComedicSociopathy in mind[[note]]It's usually thought that Japanese animation doesn't deal with this perception issue, which is somewhat true. Non-children targeted animation just has [[{{Otaku}} its own]] [[{{Hikikomori}} baggage over there[[/note]], which leads to people creating ''more'' South Park-esque shows; lather, rinse, repeat. Many such shows have animation that is extremely ugly, extremely cheap, or both, in order to resemble South Park's own animation-stlye.

This thinking has similar effects to the 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]].

* The ''Webcomic/CyanideAndHappiness'' animated shorts usually fall under this category. Some of the shorts can be dark (both BlackComedy-wise and NightmareFuel-wise), some of their shorts can be relatively light, some of their shorts can be surreal, some of their shorts can be gross. You get the idea. In that way, they're much like the original webcomic.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebAnimation/SonicForHire'' is jet-packed with BlackComedy and VulgarHumor.
** Its brother show, ''WebAnimation/MegaManDiesAtTheEnd'', is more LighterAndSofter in terms of this trope but it still occurs.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' contains loads of sex, violence and shocking subjects, particularly jokes involving Krieger, the NightmareFetishist.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' contains loads of sex, violence and shocking subjects, particularly jokes involving Krieger, the NightmareFetishist. It does have a highly detailed and realistic art style, however, compared to the usual crude looks of shows of this type.

* ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' is basically a Live-Action version of this, especially after the first, more low-key season.

* Ask anyone as to what they think is the most mature game on the UsefulNotes/Nintendo64 and the answer will usually be ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay'' despite the fact that the same console also had ''VideoGame/{{Shadowman}}'', ''VideoGame/PerfectDark'' and ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2''. It may just reveal what gamers think of when they see a game that has the M rating on it.

* One major complaint about ''WesternAnimation/MrPicklesGoodBoy'' is that the show tries to cram as many sex jokes and as much offensive, disgusting content as possible into 11 minutes.

This mentality can also work in the opposite direction, where adult viewers understand that not all cartoons are for children but think that anything not in lockstep with ''South Park''[='s=] particular brand of CrossesTheLineTwice humor is kiddie garbage--ignoring the many critically acclaimed animated series and films that are suitable for all audiences (such as ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' or ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'').
