* Despite being somewhat well-received in any other country, ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' is more of a subject of LoveItOrHateIt in Russia. A lot of flak was caught from anime fans (those of Sailor Moon especially), as well as MoralGuardians due to main characters' {{Stripperific}} outfits. People may just hate it, [[BileFascination love it for]] [[SoBadItsGood all the wrong reasons]] or [[SnarkBait snark at it]], but if you are a genuine fan of the show [[PeripheryDemographic outside its target demographic]], you will be seen as childish or brain-dead.

** The Swedish Chef is not liked by many Swedes, who find him insulting, or not Swedish. This is because of the Muppet not speaking actual Swedish, but a [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign completely unrelated mixed-up language]] (officially termed "Mock Swedish") in an accent that is not Swedish either. The Swedish Chef is basically a LoveItOrHateIt phenomenon in Sweden. Swedes either feel annoyed by how inaccurate a portrayal he is, or [[MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales laugh at him for the exact same reason]].

* In a similar vein to its sister franchise, ''Godzilla'' in the Live-Action Film folder, the ''[[Franchise/UltraSeries Ultraman]]'' franchise suffers very badly from this almost everywhere outside of Japan, with the exception of a few other Asian countries (and a small cult following in the West). In Japan, Ultraman is one of the biggest pop culture icons, a CashCowFranchise, and a major influence on many Japanese TV, film, video game, and anime creators. Elsewhere, it's viewed as goofy and cliché schlock. A lot of this is for the same reasons as the ''Godzilla'' movies due to the ValuesDissonance of the diverse and fantastical designs of Japanese monsters being seen as ridiculous, with the [[PeopleInRubberSuits rubber suit effects]]. There's also the issue of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' eclipsing Ultraman in the West, leading to accusations of ripoff (''despite the fact that Ultraman debuted long before Power Rangers did, and the two have only superficial resemblances''). None of this is helped by Tsuburaya Productions' lack of distribution (with the exception of the original show in the 60s and a few bad dubs and failed westernized spinoffs during the 90s), as well as a long-running legal dispute between Tsuburaya Productions and the Thai company that started the problem, Chaiyo Productions, over the international rights to the franchise.

** Indian-Canadian filmmaker Deepa Mehta's film ''Water'' (set in 1940s India and deeply critical of many Indian traditions) was so controversial in that country that riots broke out and sets were destroyed; Mehta was eventually forced to shoot the film in Sri Lanka. The film was selected as Canada's entry for Best Foreign Language Film in 2005.

* Disney Theatricals has several blockbuster Broadway musicals to its credit, and they tend to do well internationally but across UsefulNotes/ThePond in the U.K., the West End has not been quite so hospitable. ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' ran for over 13 years on Broadway, but only managed a little over 2½ years in London even after winning the 1998 Olivier Award for Best New Musical. ''Film/MaryPoppins'' '''began''' its life in the West End as a co-production with super-producer Cameron Mackintosh, yet ran for barely over three years while the subsequent Broadway staging ran for over ''six'', only closing to make way for ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}''. Only ''Theatre/TheLionKing'' became a certifiable West End blockbuster, having been running there nonstop [[LongRunners since 1999]]. One reason for ''Beauty and the Beast'' underperforming was that, to the eyes of Brits, it was little more than a glorified, sentimental {{Pantomime}}, a concept virtually unknown in the U.S. but a Christmastime tradition in theatres across the UK. Why take the time and expense to see a Disney fairy tale, when you can stay home and check out a local fairy tale farce instead?

Disney has only seen two real success stories in the U.K. thus far -- ''Theatre/TheLionKing'' has been running in the West End [[LongRunners since 1999]], and ''Aladdin'' has so far demonstrated staying power, possibly because the source material's tongue-in-cheek tone, lack of a fourth wall, and jokes that reference contemporary pop culture are so similar to {{Pantomime}} conventions.

** Episodes that take place in (and poke fun at) countries other than America don't tend to be popular in the given countries ([[MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales with the exception of]] [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS6E16BartVsAustralia Bart vs Australia]]). While aware of this phenomenon, ''Simpsons'' writers have stated that they never consider how a new episode will be received by a non-American audience. One episode in particular – the one where Homer becomes a gun nut and breaks every safety rule in the book (plus rules that weren't known to need to exist before this episode happened) was banned from broadcast in the UK, which normally ''loves'' the show, mainly due to being aired around the same time as the Dunblane Massacre (which set into motion the banning of handguns in the UK). It was eventually aired 4 years later. However, the ending was edited to further push the anti-gun stance.

* ''Series/{{Empire}}'' was a massive hit in the United States when it debut, but flopped in international sales, even in Canada, where most American hits succeed (though being ScrewedByTheNetwork in Canada may have played a role). There have been a number of claims to why, but most comments say that subject matter (about the cutthroat hip-hop industry) doesn't really appeal to international audiences.

Added DiffLines:

* When ''Series/TheNoddyShop'' was aired in the United Kingdom, not only did the show attract a lot of flack because of it being a re-packed version of [[WesternAnimation/NoddysToylandAdventures a beloved British series]], but fans of the original ''Noddy'' tended to have a particular distaste for Johnny Crawfish due to [[WolverinePublicity the BBC promoting him every opportunity they could]], most notably airing his ADayInTheLimelight episode "A Fish Story" twice a week. This made British fans get tired of him and wish that the BBC could stop airing the American version of the show due to how much he annoyed them.

* Korean animation is barely known outside of South Korea (apart from international co-productions or stuff appealing to a very dedicated demographic. ''The King of Pigs'', for instance, which is quite beloved among fans of adult WesternAnimation), however, there is an especially big {{Hatedom}} in Japan, who see it as Koreans ripping off their own animation (and considering the two countries' hatred for each other, it's understandable).

* Indians, by default, generally hate any portrayal of them or their country that is even in the least bit negative. Part of this is NWordPrivileges ([[SelfDeprecation they can criticize our country as much as they like]] - filthy foreigners can just shut up), but a lot of it is simply because many of these portrayals come from the Anglosphere, which as far as many in India are concerned, is directly responsible for most of the things the criticisms are about (especially the UsefulNotes/TheRaj of Britain), overlapping with UnfortunateImplications, MisplacedNationalism and PatrioticFervor.

** For similar reasons, Theater/{{Chess}} didn't play well, there, either. The song "One Night in Bangcock" in particular was considered so offensive as to get a government ban. Not shocking, as the lyrics depict the city as a giant RedLightDistrict.

* Sindy, the UK's equivalent to Barbie, still sells particularly well in her native homeland, but an attempt to bring her to the other side of the Atlantic (with commercials starring Susan "[[Series/{{TheBradyBunch}} Cindy Brady]]" Olsen) was a dismal flop.

* Nokia. In most of the world, they have a sterling reputation for selling ''billions'' of the most advanced and reliable cell phones ever made. But in North America, they are only remembered for some rather unimpressive low-end devices. Blame carriers, who wanted to ''remove'' features from their high-end phones to sell piecemeal (such as disabling wi-fi to make people use their expensive data plans), and shunned Nokia when they refused to compromise.
