* Despite having the most blatant examples of gay stereotyping [[ValuesDissonance that would never be allowed on a television sitcom today]], most of the LGBT community appears to love ''Series/WillAndGrace'', and not just because of the significant impact the show made towards marriage equality and the like. An NBC revival is in the works.

* The stereotype is made by someone from the targeted culture itself and points out its own self-acknowledged flaws. There's enough truth to it to be funny but enough affection that it doesn't offend -- for example, the exaggerated queer flamboyance of ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' and the "blue-collar" humour of Creator/JeffFoxworthy, Creator/BillEngvall, and Creator/LarryTheCableGuy.

** ''Disney/Moana'' has lots of fans in Hawaii and Polynesian countries like New Zealand. Much like ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'', it helped that many cast members had Polynesian ancestry -- Wrestling/DwayneJohnson is of Samoan descent, Jemaine Clement is half-Maori on his mother's side, and Auli'i Cravalho (in her breakthrough role as Moana) is Hawaiian. That isn't to say the film doesn't have its critics. One complaint was Maui's portrayal as [[BigFun a fat Polynesian]] -- a New Zealand author compared him unfavorably to ''{{WesternAnimation/Shrek}}''.

** Many fans with disabilities love ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'' and ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory''. Sure, the franchise uses things like the word "gimpy", and there's been some criticism about using animals as a stand-in for representation. But it's also one of the few major mainstream film series to have many characters with disabilities (who vary in both condition ''and'' characterization), and for the most part, it's handled well. Dory's short-term memory loss may often be played for laughs, but the movies as a whole are comedies anyway, and both films balance it out by throwing in a CerebusRetcon.

* According to Arab-American comic Ahmed Ahmed, Creator/JeffDunham's infamous puppet Achmed the Dead Terrorist is actually a big hit in the Middle East. This was backed up by a claim by Creator/GabrielIglesias, who is apparently the number two biggest comedian in the Middle East to Dunham's number one.

to:

* Comedian Paul Rodriguez says he likes Speedy's friend, Slowpoke Rodriguez, even more than Speedy, despite being a caricature of lazy Mexicans.
* Stand-up comic Carlos Mencia was once asked to perform in front of a crowd of hospital patients with mental and physical disabilities. The crowd ask Mencia to do jokes about "retarded people," but he was hesitant to until one of them asked an ArmorPiercingQuestion of "why won't you do those jokes in front of us?" So Mencia did, even turning the stereotypes UpToEleven, and the crowd was beside themselves with laughter.

** Creator/GabrielIglesias tells a story that backs up the claim about Dunham's. He once told by a cab driver in Saudi Arabia that he was the #2 most popular comedian in all of the Middle East. He was very flattered, then he asked who was #1. The driver's answer? Jeff Dunham.
-->'''Gabriel:''' You mean you guys don't find him at all offensive?\\
'''Driver:''' ''[gasps, offended]'' No! "[[CatchPhrase I KEEL YOU!]]"
** Also, while in Riyadh, Iglesias talked about how "I didn't know I would be performing for Franchise/AssassinsCreed." The crowd loved it.
