** In a vlog, Doug gets pretty upset with the fact that ten year olds come up to him at cons and say they love his stuff, as he thinks they ''really'' shouldn't be watching him at such a young age.

** The YouTube copyright school is one of the few episodes actually alright for kids... trouble is, pretty much the ''entire series''[[note]]apart from a few DVD-exclusive shorts[[/note]] is on the site, and nearly all of it is saddled with that rating. At least it seems that they didn't do the same to the spinoff ''Ka-Pow!'', where we see [[AxeCrazy Flippy's]] [[ShellShockedVeteran past]], among other things.

** Even YouTube got fooled by the series' cute appearance: when the site started using the TV Parental Guidelines, Happy Tree Friends was initially given a TV-Y rating, meaning it's allegedly suitable for even the youngest of children. The YouTube copyright school is one of the few episodes actually alright for kids... trouble is, pretty much the ''entire series''[[note]]apart from a few DVD-exclusive shorts[[/note]] is on the site, gore and nearly all of it is saddled with that rating.all.

* Almost anything made by Creator/RoosterTeeth. Being a group of gamers who enjoy copious amounts of drinking and swear like sailors, it bleeds into their other work, such as Creator/AchievementHunter, ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' and the like. Since it disturbs them to see younger fans enjoying these sorts of works, they try to draw them to some of their gentler works such as Game Kids or ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}''. It got to the point where, after ''RWBY''[='s=] third volume took a turn for the DarkerAndEdiger, they went and created a lighter series called ''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi''.

* Several posters in the Giant In The Playground forums were offended by sexual content in a recent ''[[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Order of the Stick]]'' [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0622.html comic]], on the grounds that "children read this comic." So, apparently it's okay for kids to watch stick figures kill each other in various brutal ways (including [[spoiler: [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0639.html committing genocide]]]]), but masturbation jokes are just going too far. Never mind that anyone who's mature enough to [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar realise it's a masturbation reference]] probably has [[IncrediblyLamePun first-hand experience]] of the activity.

* The American cable network ABC Family has run into this issue many times. Formerly a family-friendly channel originated by evangelist Pat Robertson, when ABC bought the network. An urban legend denied by the network is that the purchase agreement required the name "Family" to stay in the name of the network. As time went on, ABC Family started to attract criticism from parents and moral guardians over its airing of programming that was not considered family friendly, either due to controversial subject matter or sexual content (''Series/PrettyLittleLiars'' is one example). In 2015, the network announced it was rebranding as Freeform, which was indicated in media coverage as a sign the network was moving away from its family-friendly origins fully.
