* The Creator/{{HBO}} Family Original Special ''Literature/TheSissyDuckling'' from 1999 is a different take on the Creator/HansChristianAndersen story ''Literature/TheUglyDuckling''. The song "Time Take Time" is a heartwarming song about patience and being yourself.

* ''WesternAnimation/GenerationO'': An early 2000's cartoon about a popular rockstar girl who still has to deal with some real-life problems kids tend to have, such as (to name one example) not being allowed to have her ears pierced. It only managed to get one 13-episode season, but is still pretty enjoyable. Letters to Cleo did a good job on the songs that appeared in the show! Also, Suzanne Collins, the author of ''The Hunger Games'', was a writer on this show.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Dofus}}''. Much like Wakfu(listed below, taking place in the same universe), Dofus is a character-driven, beautifully animated series, and its movie even moreso. Yet despite having a theatrical release, almost nobody outside of France and Belgium even know about either series. Even the official wikis are wildly out of date.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Dofus}}''. Much like Wakfu(listed Wakfu (listed below, and taking place in the same universe), universe, but a thousand years earlier), Dofus is a character-driven, beautifully animated series, and its movie (which had a far more serious tone than the series it was based on, despite having the same animation style and characters) even moreso. Yet despite having a theatrical release, almost nobody outside of France and Belgium even know about either series. Even the official wikis are wildly out of date. It should be further noted that the Dofus Movie ("Dofus Book 1: Julith") wasn't very well-marketed in its native France, either, meaning that what was intended to be the first in a series may be the only Dofus film.



** It should also be noted the creators also made another series, "Dofus," listed above, which takes place in the same universe, has a feature-length movie, and is even less well-known that Wakfu itself.

to:

*** Unfortunately, the general agreement is that the dub isn't very good (most notably, the English voice actors seemed to think they were dubbing a show aimed at a much younger audience than the one the often violent and risqué series was actually aimed at), which didn't help the series' obscurity in the US.
** It should There was also be noted a Season 3 released in 2017 (which takes place after a timeskip) and several movies that take place between Season 2 and 3 that cover the missing time period.

* There's a 26-episode Canadian-German animated series named ''WesternAnimation/TurtleIsland'', which is basically ''WesternAnimation/MikeLuAndOg'' blended with WorldOfFunnyAnimals. But the only episode available in English on the Internet is "Nostramewmew", and a few AMVs have been made based on the show. Besides those videos, there is no other trace of the series on [=YouTube=].

But about a group of animals living on a tropical island headed by a wise turtle king, while a three-man pirate crew tries to steal the only episode king's treasure. While the show had some written comedy and nice storylines, there are no English episodes available in English on the Internet is "Nostramewmew", and a few AMVs have been made based on the show.

* ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn'' was a hilarious and clever show, however, unlike the other "big three" OneSaturdayMorning shows, it [[WesternAnimation/{{Doug}} wasn't merchandise driven]] or [[WesternAnimation/{{Recess}} a cult hit with adults]]. It's also the least remembered, and the only one of the "big three" without a video or DVD release, as well as not being rerun as often as the other two, and when it was, it was usually during school or when people are asleep. And it had a great theme song as well.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBrothersFlub''. Sure, it's not one of the best cartoons out there, but a '''''ton''''' of people who have heard of it hate it just because of its [[MostAnnoyingSound obnoxious theme song]], which could also be the reason for it being one of the obscurest cartoons ever. This show deserves less hate, especially since, as mentioned earlier, most of it is because of the theme song, and ''only'' the theme song.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Spliced}}''. You can't even see it in the US unless you use Website/YouTube or are one of the lucky few to get {{Qubo}}. And the network that airs it in its native Canada doesn't seem too fond of it either. It's funny, takes inspiration from ''Literature/TheIslandOfDoctorMoreau'' for its interesting character designs (read: MixAndMatchCritters you never would've thought of mixing in a million years) and it feels like something that would've aired on Nickelodeon in the mid-1990s. Oh, and Peri is cute.

* {{Creator/Nelvana}}'s ''WesternAnimation/TimothyGoesToSchool''. This show takes place in a WorldOfFunnyAnimals and focuses on a group of Kindergarten students at Hilltop School. The main character, Timothy, is a young 5 year old raccoon who's best friend is Yoko a kindhearted Japanese kitten. Timothy loves helping out his friends and the other class students when something goes wrong or they're in a bad situation. The show is based on the works of Creator/RosemaryWells (who would be involved with the ''WesternAnimation/MaxAndRuby'' series in 2002), with the first two episodes adapting the original ''Timothy'' and ''Yoko'' books while the rest of the shows adapts some stories from the ''Yoko & Friends'' series. A few episodes also had original plots with some good Aesops for children and adults to learn. The show first aired on Creator/PBSKids "Bookworm Bunch" Sunday morning block from 2000-2004, then returned in reruns on Creator/DiscoveryChannel and {{Creator/TLC}}'s "Ready Set Learn" block. The show can be seen on Qubo in America (which doesn't get too many viewers being a {{digital subchannel|s}} and all), and Canadian channel Creator/TreehouseTV has all the episodes on Youtube [[NoExportForYou though they can't be seen outside of Canada.]] The show also airs on Tiny Pop in the UK.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFoolAndTheFlyingShip'' was a Russian folktale that was apart of ''Creator/RabbitEarsProductions'' "We All Have Tales" series and it was quite a humorous and witty story. It was narrated by none other than the late ''Creator/RobinWilliams'' and it was probably one of the most creative and hilarious interpretations of the old Russian folktale. Unfortunately, it tends to go by unnoticed, just like its parent company, due to being available to limited markets at the time (only being available through educational sites) and even though the entire Rabbit Ears series is now available on DVD, it still not recognized by most of the audience.
