* A Portuguese TV channel aimed at kids, SIC K (the K standing for Kids), frequently airs some less child friendly anime alongside the friendlier one the rest. They occasionally switch between ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'', ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Brotherhood'', and ''Manga/DeathNote'', while it airs ''Manga/DragonBall'' consistently, two episodes a day. Slightly mitigated as most Portuguese parents today had grown up with shows like the aforementioned ''Manga/DragonBall'', and, thus, they aren't as strict about what counts as acceptable.

The Internet also helped breaking the ghetto to a lesser extent. Before Internet access became widespread, animated short films (which in general have mature themes) were only available in universities that catered towards that specific field, but the Internet helped many artists to publish those projects for a mainstream audience. Similarly, anime aimed at adults was limited to science fiction conventions and college campuses, but now has a worldwide following. On the other hand, the Internet-based ghetto tends to reach the other way; thanks to animation's growing reputation as a medium for all demographics, many forum users would sometimes express surprise that a well written show was [[WhatDoYouMeanItForKids made purely for kids]] or try to play up the MultipleDemographicAppeal to separate it from "other" kids' shows, thanks to the ghetto stereotype of "for kids = brainless".

* If a Broadway show comes out that's based on a non-Creator/{{Disney}} cartoon or animated movie, you can expect many people to refuse to see it because it is based on something for kids, thus resulting in the show closing. One example of this was the ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' musical, which closed after a year due to low ticket sales, as well as ''Theater/{{Seussical}}'', which was also based off a children's property. However, this has been averted with ''Theater/{{Anastasia}}'', which changed many plot elements from the movie to make the story more realistic.

* Most defenders (within Creator/CartoonNetwork) of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThundercatsRoar'' have justified their "controversial" (read: almost universally reviled) artistic decisions as animation being a kids' medium.

** The Kalos seasons (''Pokemon the Series: XY'', ''Pokémon the Series: XY: Kalos Quest,'' and ''Pokemon the Series: 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 version is still widely considered to be inferior due to factors such as dialogue changes, music replacement and the voice acting itself; some fans accuse these changes of being a result of a "kids will watch anything" mentality, and therefore chalk it up to this trope. Furthermore, when a trailer was released for the ''Sun & Moon'' anime, it came under fire from older fans for seemingly regressing into this trope with a goofier style akin to ''Anime/YokaiWatch''. When the show actually came out, most of the fire died down, as the show managed to balance out hijinks and humor with mix-ups to series formula and surprisingly heartfelt arcs. In this case, the complainers ran into this trope on their own as well; they assumed that just because the show had ''Yo-kai Watch''-style silliness and simplified designs, the season' writing would suffer for it.

* This is the number one reason for the reputation of ''Literature/WatershipDown''. It's about cute fluffy rabbits, but nobody should let their children watch it alone.

* ''Series/ThomasTheTankEngine'' is an interesting case of this trope. Due to being a kids show that uses cartoonish model trains, it is frequently mistaken to be a cartoon. It dosen't help either that [[ShiftedToCGI the later seasons were done using CGI]].

* ''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan'' is designed for adults, however it has a huge PeripheryDemographic of children because it's a puppet show based off of ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros''. It's gotten to the news where mainstream news has discussed the channel and called it essentially "deceptively inappropriate", despite the fact it was always intended for mature audiences.
