** It's worth noting that ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' and its many contemporaries were originally created with an ''adult'' audience in mind, being shorts that were run before feature films in theaters. They picked up their huge following (and association) with young audiences thanks to syndicated reruns on television starting in the 1950's.

** The Kalos seasons (''XY'' up to ''XYZ'') are often seen as a subversion of this trope, due to their greater efforts to engage older fans with their better plotting and character development along with the Mega Evolution side story specials. However, the English dub is widely considered to be of very poor quality with shoddy voice acting and unnecessary dialogue changes and edits, likely as a consequence of this trope along with TheyJustDidntCare. Furthermore, when a trailer was released for the following season (''Sun & Moon''), it came under fire from older fans for seemingly reverting to a goofier, more kid-friendly style akin to ''VideoGame/YokaiWatch''.

* Creator/TheCriterionCollection struggled with this trope for years; owing to Disney and other major animation studios keeping their top-drawer material to themselves, for many years the only animated feature in the collection was ''Anime/{{Akira}}'', and only on laserdisc. In TheNewTens the wall came down: ''WesternAnimation/FantasticMrFox'', ''Literature/WatershipDown'', and ''WesternAnimation/FantasticPlanet'' have all become part of the collection.

* One of the reasons the ''ComicBook/{{Batwoman}}'' and ''ComicBook/TheQuestion'' features in ''Creator/DetectiveComics'' drew so much controversy was because some conservatives accused Creator/DCComics of pushing a "homosexual agenda" on young kids. Never mind that ''Detective Comics'' is usually quite violent and like most Batman books, is generally ''not'' aimed at young children. And of course given recent strides in gay rights in the U.S., the idea of a lesbian superhero being "taboo" for children is itself controversial.

* One illegal streaming site claims to host cartoons for children that have educational content. Said site contains anime like ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', ''DiabolikLovers'', ''HighSchoolDxD'', ''Manga/JunjouRomantica'', and ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt''. Someone did not do their homework.

* Ever since its uncancellation, WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants has received a huge fanbase of toddlers, thanks to it airing before and after NickJr starts. There"s a ton of merchandise for toddlers, and a famous Vine video features a toddler dancing to the theme song. This still happens today even though Nickelodeon says that [[http://www.commercialfreechildhood.org/if-spongebobs-not-preschoolers-why-does-nickelodeon-market-it-them-ccfc-urges-nickelodeon-stop no, [=SpongeBob=] isn't meant for the Dora the Explorer crowd]]. And [[Radar/SpongeBobSquarePants it's clearly easy]] [[NightmareFuel/SpongeBobSquarePants to see why]]. What's even worse about this is that the show used to be rated TV-Y!

** ''WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy'' (particularly ''Adult Party Cartoon'') got hit quite hard. Notably, the latter was ''intended'' to be as disturbing and inappropriate for children as humanly possible, but somehow ended up briefly getting a 'Y7/C8' rating.

* It's probably safe to say that the ghetto was enforced in ''QuestForCamelot'', as it was originally intended to stay true to the source material, which happens to be an Arthurian lore-based novel written by Vera Chapman called ''The King's Damosel'' to the point where it would've gotten slapped with a PG-13 rating, but WarnerBros executives decided that a film like that wouldn't succeed, so they insisted that the film be toned down for a family audience. Ironically, those executives should've been careful what they wished for, as a decision like that caused an inversion of this trope by way of the film turning out to be a failure, as many people were pretty lucky to notice how much of a Disney knock-off it turned out to be.
