* In 1905, a French newspaper began publishing a comic strip about a young housemaid called Bécassine. This strip was popular across most of France, and is widely considered to be the founding of the ''[[FrancoBelgianComics bande dessinée]]'' (the ComicBook tradition of France and Belgium that gave us the aforementioned ''Tintin'', ''Astérix'', and ''De Kiekeboes''). However, it was deeply unpopular in one region of France: Brittany. You see, Bécassine was supposed to be Breton, but she didn't really act like a Breton woman; where the portrayal of her wasn't stereotypical, it was ludicrously off-the-mark. The comic ended up being so hated in Brittany that when a Breton man in Paris saw a giant statute of her, he destroyed it.

* ''Becassine'' was a very popular book character in the France of the early 20th century, with the exception being a French province known as ''Brittany''. The reason why it never caught on there is because the mentality that ''Becassine'' had clashed with the cultural mentality of most people in Brittany, where women usually behaved differently. It was so hated there that a man from Brittany destroyed a giant statue in Paris that featured her.

* ''WesternAnimation/YinYangYo'' is universally despised in France. And so is ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'', to the point that Foop's voice actor disowned the series more than Creator/RobPaulsen did for ''WesternAnimation/{{Bubsy}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Coconut Fred's Fruit Salad Island}}''. ''And that is a lot!''

** This was ultimately subverted by the ''Equestria Girls'' spinoff, which wound up [[MorePopularSpinoff eclipsing the main series in popularity]] (and potentially [[{{UnCancelled}} saving the series]]) in the region. The first movie was released in 2015 and proved to be a pretty solid success that the sequels ''Rainbow Rocks'' and ''Friendship Games'' were dubbed and released relatively shortly afterwards. Sega Toys have also taken over the series from Bushiroad, and 52 more episodes of ''Friendship Is Magic'' being announced to be currently in the works.

** Bart was undeniably the BreakoutCharacter early in the show's run in the United States, but he was loathed in Japan. This is because Bart's rebellious, loud nature clashes strongly against Japanese culture's emphasis on obedience and quiet politeness, especially due to how most authority figures in the show were powerless to stop him. The Japanese localizers knew their audiences would hate Bart, however, and downplayed him in favor of Lisa, whose studiousness and gentleness made her a more relatable protagonist than Bart (of course, she is tossed a JerkassBall in a passive-aggresive way every now and then, but she's mostly mellow). Being more subtle in your snark helps in Japan. In a weird twist of this, Lisa has become one of the more controversial characters in the American fandom. Some fans actually blame it on the Japanese fandom, occasionally accusing the creators of centering too many episodes on Lisa to increase the show's marketability in Japan.
* 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 braindead.

** It is also decreasing in popularity in Japan despite once being popular there, thanks to the aforementioned decline in quality for Seasons 4-9 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).

* Disney Theatricals has several blockbuster Broadway musicals to its credit, and they tend to do well internationally but across 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?

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[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.
