** The original 1980's cartoons had this to an extent (lord knows the theme songs did), at least until [[NightmareFuel the villains showed up]]. TheMovie was probably the most diabetes-laden part of G1, even with the villains.

** The original 1980's cartoons had this to an extent (lord knows the theme songs did), at least until [[NightmareFuel the villains villains]] [[VileVillainSaccharineShow showed up]]. TheMovie was probably the most diabetes-laden part of G1, even with the villains. (Y'know, TheOneWith the ever-spreading, all-consuming, HatePlague-inducing, eye- and mouth-spawning living ooze that is frequently compared to the Shoggoths from the CthulhuMythos.)



** [[AudienceColoringAdaptation It's mostly in the Direct-to-Video Generation 3 (early 2000's) that the My Little Pony cartoons acquired the reputation for tasting like diabetes]]. This generation contained, arguably, some of the cutest ponies in the show, and had a very feminine look towards it, as well as heart-warming friendship moments being used to their fullest. This got taken UpToEleven when the already-cute characters were {{retool}}ed into the "Animesque" style fans dubbed "G3.5". But even these two eras have their share of adventuring. Basically, this whole franchise falls under the same category as PoundPuppies - it isn't ever as pure sugar as its ad campaign suggests.

Basically, this whole franchise falls under the same category as PoundPuppies - it isn't ever as pure sugar as its ad campaign suggests.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/RomeoAndJulietSealedWithAKiss'' is basically ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet''...[[AC: [[RecycledINSPACE with sea lions!]]]]. It also being a kid-friendly telling, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that your teeth will rot. One of the worst offenders in the movie though is Kissy the Kissing Fish, who was voiced by the creator's daughter of four years without any script. Better schedule an appointment with your dentist...

* The Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon is pretty much the trope codifier to a lot of people, even though they aren't always as cutesy as they seem. Animation involving fairy tales, cheesy and overlong musical numbers, talking animals who ''don't'' engage in slapstick, and overly cutesy scenes are ''not'' what a lot of people eight and older want to watch.
** Special mention goes to Disney/SnowWhite, whose ''voice'' tastes like diabetes.
** The Pastoral Symphony segment of ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}''. Rosey-assed cupids, simpering centaurs, and candy-colored satyrs, unicorns, and pegasi bury the viewer under an avalanche of sugar -- Right up until [[MoodWhiplash Zeus shows up and]] [[JerkassGods crashes the party]].
** ''Film/PetesDragon1977'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmcCW8zqZEw Pete's song]] is somehow obnoxiously sweet while oddly [[AccidentalInnuendo sounding dirty]] at the same time. Really, this song is on the same level as the "I love you" song from ''Series/BarneyAndFriends.'' Perhaps even ''worse.''
** Averted, however, with a few of the darker films such as ''WesternAnimation/TheLionKing'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'', as well as their recent films such as ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' and ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', which practically everyone can admit are fantastic.

* ''VideoGame/Minecraft: Love And Hugs update'' items were renamed, reskinned, and re-purposed in this april fools day update... for players who had disabled all resource packs who would only have things re-purposed and be a bit confused about why creepers gave them flowers

Added DiffLines:

* Much like its proverbial predecessor, ''VideoGame/FreedomPlanet'' has characters and interactions that can be too saccharine for their own good; to be fair, the most saccharine moments are tongue-in-cheek, with Carol's reaction to Lilac and Milla's interactions [[AsideGlance piercing the fourth wall]], and these moments balance out [[KnightOfCerebus Brevon's appearances]].

** Actually subverted in some (but NOT all) of the cartoons, as well as the toy line itself. See the Western Animation folder for examples. There are plenty of non-pink ponies, and some have surprisingly awesome symbols, including thunderbolts[[labelnote:*]]Firefly, Lightning, Thundercloud, G4 Rainbow Dash, Thunderlane, Sassaflash, Honey Rays, various others[[/labelnote]], dragons[[labelnote:*]]Baby Ribbs[[/labelnote]], shields[[labelnote:*]]Shining Armor, Fire and Flame[[/labelnote]], [=UFOs=][[labelnote:*]]Star Hopper[[/labelnote]], tornadoes[[labelnote:*]][[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Tornado]][[/labelnote]] and fireballs[[labelnote:*]]Fireball, Waterfire, Firecracker Burst[[/labelnote]]. Many of these were among the original generation. And some of the more recent villains from ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Friendship is Magic]]'' have even managed to get made as toys in the G4 line, including the Queen Chrysalis talking toy - a very dark toy which says things about [[TakeOverTheWorld taking over Equestria]] and [[EmotionEater feeding on your love]] for her if you press the speech button. She even has her EvilLaugh. Played with in the case of the talking Nightmare Moon toy however - she looks evil enough, but doesn't say anything evil (or in-character) whatsoever. The Guardians of Harmony spin-off consists of straight-up action figures, including even more villains than the main toy line.
