* Most of the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' franchise has a multiple demographic appeal. This may be due to the fact that many of the people who played the original game in their childhood are now in their twenties/thirties and it's nostalgia setting in. In addition, the series attracts new fans for its SceneryPorn, SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic, DarkerAndEdgier stories (though they're [[LighterAndSofter going back ]] [[CerebusRollercoaster and forth]] on that one recently), {{Fanservice}}, and Sonic's {{Badass}} attitude making the series enjoyable for kids and young adults alike.

** Nintendo also has ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''. Boys come for the {{badass}} monsters and the battles, girls come for the [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter cute]] monsters and things like Contests, you have [[TournamentPlay the competitive players who breed for IVs and natures, EV train for a long time, and try to build the best possible team]], and then there's the wide variety of adult fans on {{imageboards}} who have come in all generations, for countless reasons. An Ad for the New 3DS XL had two ads, one aimed at boys and one aimed at girls. Both ads featured Pokemon.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'' is a show aimed at young boys, which is based on one of the most top-selling comics in the world, which was aimed at girls, featured main characters who are female, an epic story reminiscent of ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', and has the name "GregWeisman" attached to it. They made sure to cover all their bases.

* Ask any parent of a toddler what their favorite Disney Junior show is, and they may say it's ''WesternAnimation/SofiaTheFirst''. And it's easy to see why-stories and music on par with Disney films, celebrity voice actors, and appearances by old Disney characters such as the Franchise/DisneyPrincess girls and Flora, Fauna and Merriwether. Teens also enjoy the show as well for these reasons-oh, and Cedric too.

* ''ZettaiKarenChildren'' is a shounen series with lots and lots of [[EyeCandy cute girls]], but somehow a few male characters rose in popularity above the rest, a feature that was expoited further in the [[Anime/TheUnlimitedHyoubuKyousuke the spin-off]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'' was a part of Cartoon Network's daytime programming, but given the amount of horror, violence, well-written comedy and incredibly well done depressing and heartwarming moments, there wasn't much seperating it from an adult cartoon. Even the fact that the main lead was a RidiculouslyCuteCritter didn't hurt (if anything, it helped make him a particularly endearing character).

* Franchise/{{Digimon}} is the same way. While the original digital pets were intended to be a boyish alternative to {{Tamagotchi}}, ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' clearly appealed to more than just young boys. The aversion of TheSmurfettePrinciple with the main cast (and like Pokemon, [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter the cute mons]]) made it appeal to young girls as well, and the surprisingly well-written story ensured a strong adult and teen following since practically the beginning.

* ''Anime/VisionOfEscaflowne'' has HumongousMecha, samurai, a female protagonist, and a LoveTriangle. The appeal to both genders is such that there's both a shoujo manga spinoff ''and'' a shonen manga spinoff.
