Inevitably causes most critics to rush to hail them as classics that were [[TheWoobie grossly misunderstood]] in their time, but now can be worshipped as the masterpieces they truly are. Often-times people in general forget that they were bombs to begin with. [[TheParody Parodies]] and HypeBacklash inevitably follow in their footsteps.

Most works that are well-recieved remain so, long after they get released. However, some works that are well-received at their debut will fade into the mists of time as the public moves on to the newest thing, doomed to obscurity.

History is a fickle mistress. Many works that are well-received at their debut will fade into the mists of time as the public moves on to the newest thing, doomed to obscurity. On the other hand, 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.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants''
** You won't find as many [=SpongeBob=] fans who hate Season 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 Season 6-8 don't fare much better]].

* Some major crossovers, universally panned at first, have gone on to garner popularity. In particular, ''Maximum Carnage'' and ''ComicBook/TheCloneSaga'' have been reappraised as good despite being initially being panned. Part of this is due to the stories working slightly better when read all at once in a trade collectible, rather than one at a time over a period of months/years (many of these, like the examples above, were written before WritingForTheTrade became a thing)

* ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'': Back when it first aired, the show gained many detractors, largely due to its animation style. But after [[GrowingTheBeard Growing the Beard]] in its second season, the show was widely considered the best animated FOX sitcom since ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' (or at least ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'').

But after [[GrowingTheBeard Growing the Beard]] in its second season, the show was widely considered the best animated FOX sitcom since ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' (or at least ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'').



** Season 4 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/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' had a large {{Hatedom}} back in the day from [[FandomRivalry SatAM fans]], and those who thought it was just bad in general. Then, in the mid-2000s, with the rise of 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 Orbot and Cubot.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'': The Dil and Kimi episodes when they were on, was the most hated cartoon 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/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.

* ''WesternAnimation/CampLazlo'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}'', and ''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.
