* 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.

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.

* For some reason, Creator/DreamWorksAnimation thought in the early 2010s that doing sentimental films ''á la'' Disney (''totally'' inverting the studio's previous formula) would be a good idea. The company almost sank, before they snapped out of it.



* ''Film/TheOogielovesInTheBigBalloonAdventure'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6R8ejuwlbuU]]. And yes, it's a feature film.

* (usually) Subverted by Bubbles Utonium on ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''. She can induce diabetes in one moment then kick as much ass as her sisters the next.

* [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016 The remake]], on the other hand, gives us [[VillainOfTheWeek Allegro]], the panda whose face, tone of voice, and mannerisms can induce diabetic shock [[TheScrappy if not abject rage]].
