Added DiffLines:

* While they can serve as a middle ground for both kids and adults, animated action shows are the frequent victim to this stigma since it can be easy for parents and MoralGuardians alike to rip the network a new one over the intense violence and lead them to either tone down the content, move it to a later time slot, or outright cancel the show. Not to mention that, along with being expensive, action cartoons are strictly relegated to television meaning their main source of profit comes from merchandising and video sales. Because of this, it's easier for networks to produce more kid-friendly action shows like ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' and ''WesternAnimation/Ben102016'' since they're cheaper to produce and more likely to turn a profit from kids without any hassle from their parents or TV watch groups.

** If anything, since the success of TTG, current CN president Christina Miller has been accused by fans of enforcing this trope as the channel's current programming almost strictly emphasizes comedy shows aimed towards younger children rather than producing additional content for any teen's and young adults watching.[[note]]made worse as three of the [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo channel's]] [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016 current]] [[WesternAnimation/Ben10 shows]] are all reboots to action shows that flat-out ignore both the action and writing that made the originals a hit with older audiences.[[/note]] Not helping is the channel's [[AdoredByTheNetwork treatment of]] [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime more]] [[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse acclaimed]] [[WesternAnimation/RegularShow shows]] and Miller's previous involvement with HIT Entertainment, a company that produces television shows aimed at preschoolers.

* Don't expect anyone to take you seriously if you admit your a fan of ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'', fansites notwithstanding. Ever since Season 8, the series has generally been written off as "just another kiddie show". The [[LighterAndSofter drastically changed tone]] that plagued the show for almost 7 years straight played a major role in this. It doesn't help that the show is based on [[Literature/TheRailwaySeries a series off books]] that are [[NightmareFuel/ThomasTheTankEngine well-remembered for being extremely dark at times]]. While the show has [[WinBackTheCrowd won back the crowd]] in recent times, it's still very common to hear this argument against it. Not to mention that [=HiT=] Entertainment has flat out stated that the only reason the show survived this long is because [[MerchandiseDriven the toy line sells really well]].

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' has been noted for its ability to entertain both kids and adults, but a lot of people tend to believe that it is a kids' show and it is broadcasted as a kids' show despite all the [[Radar/{{Kaeloo}} adult jokes]] in it.

*** It should be noted, however, that there is an element of ScapegoatCreator to this. The shift from action to comedy on Cartoon Network was well under way before Miller became president. For reference, a number of the network's more "serious" shows, including [[WesternAnimation/BewareTheBatman]], [[WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011]], and [[WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan]] were cancelled under Miller's predecessor, Stu Snyder. Additionally, while [[WesternAnimation/RegularShow]] did end in 2017, it did so at the request of its creator rather than being cancelled by the network.

* The reason behind the infamous ''Comicbook/OneMoreDay'' reboot is firmly rooted to this. JoeQuesada firmly believed that a married Spider-Man could not attract a younger audience to the comic.
