* Car example: Lexus was introduced as [[MarketBasdTitle a luxury division of Toyota]] in America and Europe. The Lexus LS is a special case, as that came first, with the Toyota Celsior being introduced back to Japan following [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff the un-expected success that the LS had in North America]]. When the Lexus brand was introduced back to Japan, they come up with [[OriginalCharacter completely original Lexus models]] (without Toyota counterparts and badging for most models), and became an acclaimed and instant hit among both car enthusiasts and government organizations in Japan.

** In the time period when Speedy was created, Mexico wasn't so different to the way how the country is depicted in the cartoons, albeit in a very cartoony way. The country was recovering from the scars from both the UsefulNotes/MexicanRevolution and the Cristero War and most of the country, barring Mexico City, Guadalajara and few other cities from the southern side of the country were mostly small, poor towns populated with peasants, workers, and other low class people, some of them were dressed with more or less the same clothes used in the series. This fact is normally taught in Mexican history books and by many of the still living relatives who lived in that time period, before the country started his restoration in the 1950's. Even if the cartoons showed an stereotypical version of Mexico, at least that version was a ''very honest'' (if a very wacky) one, especially for the people who lived in that period during their childhood or teenage years. Heck, many old Mexicans who lived in that time claimed to have meet someone like Speedy (minus the "Speed" thing) somewhere in their lives.

** Canadians seem to have taken the gibes at their accent and their country in the movie version of the series with good humor. Canadian fans tend to love anything involving Terrance and Phillip.

** From 1999 to 2002, the cartoons were banned in the USA by Cartoon Network, who had exclusive broadcasting rights, and discontinued by Warner Bros. but a massive fan campaign and lobbying by the League of United Latin American Citizens eventually led to this practice ending. The temporary discontinuation was referenced in ''LooneyTunesBackInAction'', when Porky Pig meets Speedy at the Warner Bros. canteen and they talk about how [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad having to be PC]] ruined their careers, since Porky has a handicap (stuttering) and Speedy is an ethnic minority. ** In the time period when Speedy was created, Mexico wasn't so different to the way how the country is depicted in the cartoons, albeit in a very cartoony way.

* Many Asian-American critics dislike the CharlieChan franchise because of its {{Ice Cream Koan}}s, {{Yellowface}} (despite in the first iteration, the actor was actually 1/4 Mongolian), misrepresentation of Chinese culture, [[AsianSpeekeeEngrish broken English]], and the title character's alleged subservience to whites. However, he's also a brilliant, law-abiding detective [[FairForItsDay in a time]] where most Chinese characters were [[YellowPeril villains]] and some of his Ice Cream Koans are ActuallyPrettyFunny. Plus, Chan is the hero of series, always defeating the villain. Also, while Chan is a stereotype, his children are shown as being all-American kids and were played by actual Asian actors. This has earned the franchise a few Asian-American defenders, including actor Keye Luke. Also, the series was enormously popular in East Asia. The popularity in East Asia could also due to ValuesDissonance. The use of color-face (blackface, whiteface, yellowface) isn't seen as offensive as in the US, especially if it's not used spitefully. A commercial by Nippon Airline had an actor dressing up in whiteface for a gag, and most Japanese didn't see the problem (it wasn't clear if there was a difference between the opinions of white and yellow Japanese, since only nationality was noted, not the race), and an English competition in China featured middle school students dressed as "foreigners".

* Series/HouseOfCardsUS has VillainProtagonist Frank Underwood as a ruthless amoral bisexual Southern Gentleman politician [[spoiler:and later PresidentEvil]]. Bisexual males have absolutely no problem with him, mainly because while he has used sex as a tool to manipulate, his actual relationship with his wife and ex-boyfriend in college have been portrayed rather sympathetically, if a little shaky with the former.
