* ''[[WesternAnimation/TheMagicRoundabout Doogal]]'' is probably one of the most notorious examples of this in animated film history. Based on the British-French stop-motion children's show from the 60s, the CGI film was originally released in Europe in 2005. Even though the original series and franchise is practically unknown outside of its native France, Harvey Weinstein himself after watching the original film felt it would be a [[BlatantLies brilliant idea]] to release the film in America in 2006. This was done by recasting all but two of the original British cast with well-known American stars, rewriting the film by inserting obnoxious pop culture and fart jokes and reediting the film to accommodate all the script changes. The results turned ''Doogal'' into a critical and commercial nightmare in the United States, continuing to baffle and [[BileFascination intrigue]] film enthusiasts and critics to this day.

* Indians seem to feel this way about any humorous depiction of UsefulNotes/MahatmaGandhi, for very obvious reasons. There was a major backlash on Website/YouTube over the "Gandhi II" clip from the Music/WeirdAlYankovic movie ''Film/{{UHF}}'', a fake movie trailer that re-imagines Gandhi as a 1970s blaxploitation-like vigilante. The joke is simply a parody of {{actionized sequel}}s taken to such an extreme that even ''Film/{{Gandhi}}'' gets the treatment.

* Indians, by default, hate any portrayal of them or their country that is even in the least bit negative. Part of this is NWordPrivileges ([[SelfDeprecation we can criticise our country as much as we like]] - you filthy foreigners can just shut up), but a lot of it is simply because a lot of those portrayals come from the Anglosphere, which as far as many people 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 PatrioticFervour.
** It is still very much an unwritten rule in India that going after public figures, history or social issues ''on any tack except the official position'' is going to be a BerserkButton. Putting people, ideals and traditions on pedestals is SeriousBusiness in India.

** ''Film/SlumdogMillionaire'' was hated by Indian people, due to its obliviousness to the Bollywood cliches that were in it and [[UnfortunateImplications stereotypical portrayal]] of India as a poverty ridden hellhole. Elsewhere the reception was almost universally positive, where it won 8 UsefulNotes/{{Academy Award}}s (including "Best Picture"), and the film currently has a 94% rating on Website/RottenTomatoes.

* The Disney comics are traditionally more popular in Europe than their native United States. However, according to Don Rosa, the confrontation between Scrooge and Soapy Slick in Part Eight of ''ComicBook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck'', in which Soapy's riverboat casino was destroyed, was frowned upon by European readers for supposedly making Scrooge look like a Batman-esque vigilante (although Rosa never wrote what exactly happened and constantly maintained that the tale was meant to be exaggerated through legend).

* Nokia was the absolute king of cell phones from the 1990s to the early 2010s. The high quality and advanced features of their devices granted them a huge and rabidly loyal clientele. That is, except in North America, where they never made much of a dent, and are only remembered for very unimpressive low-end devices. Blame carriers, who wanted to ''remove'' features from their high-end devices to sell piecemeal (such as disabling wi-fi to make people use their expensive data plans), and shunned Nokia when they refused to compromise.

* ''Film/{{Borat}}'', unsurprisingly, was not at all well received by many ethnic groups, to the point that it was [[BannedInChina banned in most Middle Eastern countries]]. Russia discouraged cinemas from showing it, because many felt it would lead to race riots (as Russia has a Kazakh minority population). The movie wasn't shown in theatres, but it is available on [=DVD=]. Ironically, [[MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales the Kazakhs loved it]].

* ''Franchise/{{Tintin}}:'' [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Universally popular, even in places you might not expect like Africa, The Middle East, China]],... Except in North America, especially the U.S.A., where it is still more a cult strip. Case in point is Creator/StevenSpielberg's 2011 movie adaptation, which was a box office success across the world, except in the United States where the media attention and public interest were very low. Most Americans seem to be puzzled about Tintin's lack of super powers and see it more as a detective comic with a lot of slapstick.
** Actually subverted in the aforementioned U.S.A., as Creator/StevenSpielberg is one of the world's greatest Tintin fans; therefore, this franchise [[VindicatedByHistory got better in North America]], as he is America's shining light for ''Franchise/{{Tintin}}''.

* While ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' is considered to be one of the greatest shows that Nickelodeon has ever produced in the Western world, Japan hated ''Avatar''. It's possible this is because the Fire Nation was heavily based on UsefulNotes/ImperialJapan, and [[OldShame Japan doesn't like to acknowledge the war crimes they committed]] in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. Another reason is that the Japanese version of Nickelodeon was shut down before it had the chance to air the third season, resulting it to have a NoExportForYou until 2016 when Amazon Prime Japan included the third season in their library along with the first two seasons but having its original American version as it is the only season not to be dubbed in Japanese. Ironically, its sequel series ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' is a CultClassic there.

* ''Franchise/CabbagePatchKids'' is simply hated by many Japanese fans, due to the doll's [[UncannyValley grotesque nature]] compared to the simplified yet cute face of the country's native ''Franchise/HelloKitty''.

to:

* 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.

* Disney's ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' was well-received by critics and audiences alike, but it was universally ''hated'' by the Greeks, who were angered at the film [[DisneyFication playing]] [[LighterAndSofter fast]] [[SadlyMythtaken and]] [[TheThemeParkVersion loose]] with their revered mythology, to the point where Greece [[BannedInChina outright denied the film a premiere in their country]] (the attempt to have the film premiere there on Pnyx Hill, one of the most revered sacred sites in the country, did not do them any favors PR wise). Considering how Disney's take on an [[Disney/{{Pocahontas}} American legend]] is generally considered SnarkBait by American Disney fans, it's surprising this hasn't happened with their other non-European fairy tale/story adaptations.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' is disliked in Norway not only due to the SeasonalRot affecting the post-movie episodes, but also the replacement of the titular character's voice actor with Trond Teigen (known for his role as {{Disney/Aladdin}} among other more action-oriented roles), whose attempts at mimicking the previous actor's performance comes off as forced and unnecessary.
** It is also decreasing in popularity in Japan despite once being popular there, thanks to Seasonal Rot and its ScrewedByTheNetwork treatment by both Animax and NHK. This also caused Paramount to make [[WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobMovieSpongeOutOfWater the second movie]] play at only one theater chain in Japan (Aeon to be exact, which only had a handful of theaters there).
