* 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. A Netflix revival is in the works.

* The allegedly offensive character has strong sides -- for example, WesternAnimation/{{Speedy|Gonzales}} may be somewhat stereotypical, but note that he always wins.

* ''Film/SpaceJam'' seems to have a cult following among sports fans - especially those that grew up in TheNineties and experienced MichaelJordan's abrupt retirement, attempts to play baseball and then return to the NBA, which in real life was all so surreal and riddled with questions that one who witnessed it could watch a movie saying the LooneyTunes were behind it all and say "makes sense to me."

* In ''VideoGame/PunchOut'', every opponent is a blatant stereotype designed to be [[TakeThatScrappy all the more satisfying to beat senseless]]. When it's America's turn, Super Macho Man is an elitist, condescending, rich, and very, very tanned Californian actor with a fair share of FanDisservice to boot. And yet, he's one of the most popular characters in the United States, especially in the Wii sequel, because of [[LargeHam how completely over-the-top he is]]. Also, the Wii game was developed by Canadian developers Next Level Games, and yet one of the only two characters brought from the SNES game is Bear Hugger, stereotypically a Canadian boxer.

* The fictional sport of ''Quodpot'', introduced in ''Literature/QuidditchThroughTheAges'', is a joke on EagleLand and [[AmericansHateTingle American rejection of association football]] in favor of American football. It's essentially basketball, played on broomsticks, and [[StuffBlowingUp the Quaffle is a time-bomb.]] American fans of the series generally think that Quodpot [[http://doodlewee.deviantart.com/art/HP-Quodpot-114676537 sounds like a lot of fun.]]

* The Song 'Yankee Doodle' was originally intended to poke fun at American Revolutionaries who wanted their independence. Americans have since embraced the silly song, and consider it as one of the nation's most patriotic songs.

* ''Film/OceansThirteen'' is reportedly very popular with hotel staff worldwide. In particular is the treatment of the VUP (Very Unimportant Person) [[spoiler:who is in actuality the reviewer of the coveted Five Diamond Award]]; many a hotel worker has claimed their (obviously impossible) wish to be able to treat guests in that manner.



** For another British character that's much loved across the pond, look no further than Jonathan Quayle Higgins III from ''Series/MagnumPI''. Not only is he an effective foil toward Magnum, as well as T.C. and Rick, Higgins is also a worldly man that has served His/Her Majesty's interests on and off the battlefront since World War II (such that a running gag in the series is him going off on one of his adventure stories), and more or less plays an older, more sagely [[TheSmartGuy Smart Guy]] among the main group. And like Niles, Higgins' actor, John Hillerman, is ''not'' British and also hails from Texas.
