A few exceptional (or lucky) works with unexceptional debuts will be re-discovered and re-analyzed and become critical darlings after about twenty years, as well as timeless classics in the eyes of the public, usually when their authors/producers are no longer around to bask in their belated fame. [[TrueArtIsAngsty Unconventional and gloomily-themed works]] that star little-known actors are the most prone to this.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'': Back when it first aired, the show gained many detractors, largely due to its animation style and being yet another dysfunctional/idiosyncratic family show cut from the same cloth as ''The Simpsons'' and ''Family Guy''. But after GrowingTheBeard in its second season, which included becoming a more lighthearted comedy and focusing on the heartwarming interactions between the Belchers, therefore stepping out of what was expected of an adult animated sitcom, the show has become widely considered the best animated FOX sitcom since ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' (or at least ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'').
* The Hanna-Barbera television animation studio had been up and running since 1957, and had been enjoying at least middling success due to the popularity of its earliest shows, most notably ''Huckleberry Hound''. But it was the early '60s success of ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' established a [[StealthPun rock-solid]] TV empire for them, in which they could throw together whatever they wanted and not worry about the ratings. Two such shows came out of this early freedom, ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons'' and ''WesternAnimation/TopCat'', neither of which lasted more than one season during their initial runs. Hanna-Barbera subsequently built stable franchises out of these underrated works over the course of a few decades, to the point where their status as mainstream classics became undisputed.
* ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' was overlooked in favor of other WB cartoons such as ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'', ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'', and ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}'' back in its time, but nowadays, it has become extremely popular, being considered by many fans to be the true successor to ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes''.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' has always been given good reviews, but never the amount of acclaim that ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' has. However, as it went, fans began to love it more, and more, as it's now considered one of the best in the DCAU.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/BeastMachines Transformers Beast Machines]]'' was not well received for a wide variety of reasons. Nowadays, fans that have since matured are more positive about their opinions, and others regard it more favorably than the Anime/UnicronTrilogy.
** Bob Budiansky, the writer of much of [[ComicBook/TheTransformers the Marvel Comics series]], was widely derided in the early online fandom for his liking of childish or absurd stories (Ratbat leading the Decepticons, evil car washes, wrestling leagues) and Simon Furman was seen as MyRealDaddy for comic fans. At a certain point, however, people realized just how important he'd been to the early history of the franchise - writing ''all'' the profiles and coming up with almost every character name for the first three or four years - and started to notice that his comic run still had its share of decent or unique stories ([[UnbuiltTrope even today]]). While Furman is still considered the better writer of the two, Budiansky is less remembered as "that guy with the stupid plots" and more remembered as "that guy without whom ''Transformers'' would not exist." Fans have also become more aware (and understanding) of the fact that Budiansky, far more than Furman, suffered from a high amount of ExecutiveMeddling, forcing him to push out new characters at a near-impossible rate, instead of giving them time to develop.
** The third season of [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers Generation One]]. It was once the most derided season in the fandom, but since coming out on DVD and being made widely available alongside the rest of the series, many fans have taken another look at it, and now many episodes of the season are regarded as some of the series' best. Check any top ten list of G1 episodes and season three episodes will make up almost half of the list, at least.
** Fan response to ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' at the time of its release was a BrokenBase, due to using [[AnimationAgeGhetto a more cartoon-ish artstyle]] and LighterAndSofter tone (sometimes mocked for being ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''-esque, despite ''Teen Titans'' being a popular show), though it would eventually [[WinTheCrowd win some viewers over]] its CerebusSyndrome and GrowingTheBeard, such as "Thrill of the Hunt" early on in Season 1 and especially by Season 3, though there were still detractors that continued to dismiss it as a kids' superhero cartoon. Years later, ''Animated'' is considered one of the best ''Transformers'' cartoons, likely stemming from the mixed response of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersRobotsInDisguise2015''.
* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' lasted 1 1/2 seasons on Nickelodeon, unable to maintain high ratings, and it was just too expensive to keep making. In the following years it has become a Nicktoon favorite, ranking alongside ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'', ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'', ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'', ''WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy'', ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' and the ''[[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Avatar]]'' [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra franchise]] as the most popular. Zim is now used in Nicktoon games and merch even though his show hasn't been on in years.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'': Although never as big a hit as ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', ''Futurama'' always had a relatively big audience, but failed to become a CashCowFranchise. Most people expected a similar ''Simpsons''-style show, but all they got was a satirical science fiction series that wasn't as recognizable as a nuclear family set in modern times. Eventually the show was even cancelled, but thanks to high DVD sales, high ratings from reruns on Creator/AdultSwim, and fans sharing files on the Internet, it eventually became a popular cult show and was revived on Creator/ComedyCentral. The following seasons proved highly popular.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': The first 2 runs of ''Family Guy'' proved fairly unpopular, despite being given a time slot during prime time. It was cancelled after the second season but fan demand was enough to give it a third season. It was shuffled around to worse and worse time slots, until it was finally cancelled for the second time and for good (back then, at least) after the third season ended. Its impact earned it [[SacredCow Immunity To Criticism]] and DVD sales were large enough to have the series revived, however, and the show went on to become one of the highest rated shows on Fox during its run.
** Season 4 (the first series when the show came back from cancellation) of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' wasn't met much with praise when it began airing. Many fans were hating on it to the point of someone working on the show stepping in and defending that said season. But now, the fourth season is considered to be the golden age. For some people who tuned in the show since its return, it's considered to be hands down the best season. For people who have loved the show prior to its return, it's considered consistent compared to the other uncancelled seasons.
* ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants''
** You won't find as many [=SpongeBob=] fans who hate Seasons 4 and 5 as back in the day (they're still seen as inferior to Season 1-3, but not by a whole lot), some even going as far as to include Season 4 as part of the show's Golden Age. However, [[SeasonalRot that's probably because Seasons 6-8 don't fare much better]].
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' had a large hatedom back in the day from [[FandomRivalry SatAM fans]], and those who thought it was just bad in general. In the mid-2000s, with the rise of the WebAnimation/YouTubePoop and several memes stemming from the show, it is now regarded as a classic due to its silly humor, SoBadItsGood nature, DerangedAnimation, and the crazy antics of Robotnik and his minions Scratch and Grounder. Scratch and Grounder themselves were even the inspiration for henchman robots that Eggman would use in further incarnations or games in the franchise, such as [[VideoGame/SonicColors Orbot and Cubot]], and [[Anime/SonicX Decoe and Bocoe]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'': The Dil and Kimi episodes, when they were on, were the most hated of the cartoon's run on the Internet alongside Klasky-Csupo's other cartoons at the time, due to [[{{Flanderization}} flanderizing the baby talk]], and many people thought that it was over-saturating the network. But in later years, those seasons are as held in high regard as the seasons before those. It's gotten to the point of where people have hardly noticed the changes (minus additional characters) that happened throughout the show's run and think that the show has been consistent in quality.
* ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone'': While the premiere episode gained the highest ratings for a Nicktoon premiere at the time (March 2002) and was well liked among its target audience, older Nickelodeon fans detested it for various reasons: Mainly being too "safe", "tame", or "cute" compared to other Nick shows at the time (such as ''[=SpongeBob=]'') and some {{Misblamed}} the show for replacing ''Invader Zim'' (when in reality, ''[=ChalkZone=]'' was delayed for two years), though it was more of an extremely BrokenBase as it also had many defenders. Nickelodeon itself even overlooked the show in favor of its other Nicktoons. After the show ended, it started to gain a cult following and now many Nickelodeon fans regard it as being one of the best Nicktoons of the 2000s decade.
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' was initially seen as a shallow knock-off of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' with hamfisted attempts at political humor. The show gradually stepped out of the former's shadow, [[GrowingTheBeard grew its beard]] and became more character-driven, with a change in its style of humor to surreal, DenserAndWackier antics (in an example of TropesAreNotBad). Some have argued that the show not only has better writing than ''Family Guy'', but that it's also Seth Macfarlane's best.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' during the Scully era (seasons 9-12) was often criticized due to the DenserAndWackier tone and zany plot twist when it was airing. But now, some people are defending the era and even consider season 9 (and a lesser extent, season 10) part of the classic era...but only because the episodes helmed by Al Jean aren't any better than what Mike Scully did.
* Most of Creator/CartoonNetwork's original programming from 2004 through 2009 (''WesternAnimation/HiHiPuffyAmiYumi'', ''WesternAnimation/CampLazlo'', ''WesternAnimation/ClassOf3000'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}'', ''WesternAnimation/TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack'') were all initially brushed aside as mediocre or bad by many. They've since gained more popularity for being among the best and most fondly remembered shows during the height of CN's DorkAge.
** ''Hi Hi [=Puffy AmiYumi=]'' got a lot of hate during its run, had ''very'' few fans or defenders, and viewer ratings were quite low compared to other shows airing on the network back then. But after being ScrewedByTheNetwork, the general consensus started to change, and, while it isn't as popular or as beloved as other Cartoon Network shows, it has gained a pretty sizable fanbase and following.
** ''Class Of 3000'' also received mixed reviews and opinions during its run, and soon got the axe for having low viewer ratings. Today, it's considered one of the better shows that Cartoon Network introduced during its DorkAge.
** ''The Marvelous Misadventures Of Flapjack'' stands out in particular as some of the storyboard artists for the show have gone on to [[WesternAnimation/RegularShow make]] [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime smash]]-[[WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall hit]] [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls shows]].
** In a similar vein, network president Stuart Snyder, the one responsible for the first Dork Age [[ScrewedByTheNetwork by cancelling more liked originals for rather petty reasons, killing the first version of]] Creator/{{Toonami}}, and [[NetworkDecay trying to force reality shows onto]] ''[[NetworkDecay Cartoon]]'' [[NetworkDecay Network]]. There was [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing much rejoicing]] when Snyder left, even on Wiki/ThisVeryWiki. Come 2017, Snyder is seen in a less negative light, however, being known for not being afraid to [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar push the boundaries]] compared to other kids' networks, and despite removing most {{Anime}} from the schedule, was a big supporter of western action cartoons, along with ''WesternAnimation/DCNation'', as well as having helped support the development of beloved hits ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'', ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', and (though he had left before it aired) ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall'', especially in light of the second DorkAge (which goes in detail [[DorkAge/TelevisionNetworks here]]) that Cartoon Network re-entered with Christina Miller's reign. Though the Dork Age still happened and people still hate it, his tenure has gone from being viewed as "the worst years Cartoon Network ever had" to "It started off bad, but he managed to salvage it."
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'': The Games episodes were once one of the most reviled cartoons in the history of animation, and its low ratings and critical backlash, following John Kricfalusi's firing[[note]]Which, it must be pointed out, he really brought on himself, at least in part.[[/note]] had led to the show's demise in 1995. After the failure of ''[[WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpyAdultPartyCartoon Adult Party Cartoon]]'', and further stories about what happened behind the scenes at Spumco (From Billy West, Bob Camp and many other colleagues of Kricfalusi's, a book documenting the events of the show's history, released in 2013 entitled "Sick Little Monkeys: The Unauthorized Ren and Stimpy Story", and sexual allegations of John K.), the Games episodes nowadays are seen as either not as good as the first two seasons, but good in their own right, or better than the Spumco episodes that had preceded it (It's very telling that Bob Camp is usually the one out of the two creators of Ren and Stimpy, that is asked to attend conventions on a frequent basis). Either way, most people agree that the Games episodes fare better than ''Adult Party Cartoon'' did.
* ''WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig'' started off [[SnarkBait disliked]] like many of the other [[DorkAge post-2009]] Nicktoons on Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}. Not unlike ''Bob's Burgers'' however, its [[GrowingTheBeard second season saw an improvement]]. The [[GrossOutShow gross-out humor]] was dialed back, while the focus on the characters and story-telling over cheap laughs increased. This did wonders for the show, and before long it had gained a noticeable fanbase and was considered one of Nickelodeon's saving graces alongside ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBeaks''. In the end, there were sighs of disappointment rather than sighs of relief when it was cancelled, which is more than could be said for some of its fellow Nicktoons such as ''WesternAnimation/{{Breadwinners}}''.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' was initially poorly received by fans, especially since it was hot off the heels of the poorly-received Prequel Trilogy and the well-loved ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars'' cartoon by Genndy Tartakovsky, not to mention that it introduced concepts foreign to the then-[[Franchise/StarWarsLegends Expanded Universe]], such as Anakin being more hot-headed, Anakin having a Padawan that was never mentioned in the movies, and so on. After GrowingTheBeard halfway through the show, reception towards the show became warmer, combined with the target audience using the show as a [[GatewaySeries gateway]] into the franchise, though some concepts continued to be controversial topics for ''Legends'' fans for the {{Retcon}}s of previously well-received stories such as ''VideoGame/StarWarsRepublicCommando''. After the show was cancelled and the ''Legends'' EU was {{retcon}}ned, among other BrokenBase responses that still continue as of this writing, ''The Clone Wars'' is fondly remembered and many still clamor for it to be continued, with a common response being to compare it with its successor show, ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels''.
* The first solo Batman cartoon outside of the DCAU since 1992, ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'', was ''loathed'' when it was on air, with many fans and even some critics deriding it as "unwatchable" and a "22-minute toy commercial."[[note]]It was also disliked due to the "Bat-Embargo" it caused, meaning that it prevented any ''Batman'' character other than Batman himself from being used on ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'' because it was believed that two concurrent Batman series' would confuse young children[[/note]] These days, it's looked back on fairly positively, with many people (including former critics) acknowledging that it's actually a pretty good show and arguing that it handles certain things way better than even ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries BTAS]]'' ever did (the action being one big example as ''TAS'' action scenes haven't aged well.).
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' had very vocal critics for similar reasons, but is now looked back on as a fun, campy romp, with many former critics admitting that they wound up liking the show after giving it a second chance and that it isn't the cheap, kid-centric program they initially thought it was.
* When it first came out, ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' was bashed by fans of [[WesternAnimation/Ben10 the original series]] for its [[DarkerAndEdgier completely different tone]]. Nowadays, people generally agree that it had the best balance of humor and seriousness out of any of the franchise's installments, and gave the characters a much-needed dose of maturity and CharacterDevelopment. It helps that a later installment, ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'', was [[BrokenBase much more divisive]].
* ''WesternAnimation/BackAtTheBarnyard'' was generally dismissed as yet another product of Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}'s DorkAge at the time, with fans not caring for its dumb jokes and bizarre nature. It didn't help that [[WesternAnimation/{{Barnyard}} the movie it was based on]] was largely considered [[SoOkayItsAverage mediocre]]. Nowadays, the show has started to gain status as a CultClassic (some of it ironic, some of it genuine), with fans who love its absurdist nature and consider it a FountainOfMemes.

* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' became one. The game has always been loved by the fans, but all admitted that ''Visualnovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' was an EvenBetterSequel. However, in later years, with the latest two installments of the franchise ended up becoming [[ContestedSequel Contested Sequels]] ([[VisualNovel/NewDanganronpaV3 [=DRV3=]]] has its own BrokenBase page) and several events of the sequel being rendered pointless or outright {{Retconned}} by ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' while various of the survivors of the original game TookALevelInBadass, several fans have taken a new appreciation for the original game.
