* Judging from its sheer presence on the internet, it's a fair assumption that the ''MyLittlePony'' franchise never caught on with males until ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', but there were bronies (not that they ''called'' themselves that) back as far as Generation 1 - believe it or not, the G1 cartoon series usually dealt with boy-friendly epic fantasy adventures, not stereotypically girly fare. But since 4Chan wasn't around in TheEighties, the male fans of the show didn't make themselves known as a significant PeripheryDemographic until the latest series.
** The infamous "Rainbow Dash always dresses in style" quote is usually associated with G3.5 (as is the theme song the lyric appears in), but the quote - and the song - were actually borrowed from G3.
** Actually, who here remembers the ''first'' time we saw multi-colored equines dancing across the screen in WesternAnimation. You know, small unicorns dancing around, and pegasi too. What, TheEighties? No...we saw these as early as TheForties - I'm talking about the Pastorale in ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}''.

** [[PeripheryDemographic A children's show appealing to an adult audience?]] Friendship Is Magic is revolutionary and has broken down ''all'' the barriers of the AnimationAgeGhetto...if ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}} Arthur]]'', ''[[WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans The Backyardigans]]'', and ''[[Series/SesameStreet Sesame Street]]'' didn't beat it to the punch ''years'' and even ''decades'' earlier.

** At first, ''Friendship is Magic'' became well-known for its occasional GenreShift into SliceOfLife instead of adventure. This was actually first explored in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTales'' and later on in G3 along with G3.5.

** Many ponies (especially in the toy line) predate ''Friendship Is Magic''. Applejack was outright one of the first G1 ponies as she was a year 2 character.



* The Chipettes from ''Franchise/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' first officially appeared in 1983 however they were first referenced a year earlier in the song "The One That I Want" from the CD ''The Chipmunks Go Hollywood''. In the song, Theodore mentions Charlene and states that she's from a group known as "The Chipettes". Charlene was eventually replaced with a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute, Britanny.

* When it was announced that ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' would be getting a brand new fifth season years after being cancelled, one notable aspect that surprised many is that the new season would be set to premiere on Creator/{{Toonami}} on Creator/AdultSwim... and would ''still'' be produced by Cartoon Network Studios, the same company who produced the first four seasons. Surprising? Maybe, but it's actually not the first time that Cartoon Network Studios has produced anything for [adult swim]. That honor belongs to the second season of ''WesternAnimation/BlackDynamite''.

* Many people are unaware that the cartoon segments on ''WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse'' originated as segments of the short-lived ''Mickey [=MouseWorks=]'' television series, possibly due to some of the shorts making their debut on ''House of Mouse'' without previously airing as part of ''Mickey [=MouseWorks=]''.

** And the trend of CelebrityVoiceActors in animated films actually started with ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'', a Universal Studios production from 1986 that starred Dom DeLuise and Madeline Kahn, though ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' would be the TropeCodefier.

* On a larger scale, a lot of baby boomers who grew up in TheSixties, if they have no knowledge of animation history, will be surprised when you tell them that cartoons from TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation such as ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' and ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' were coming out in the 1930s and '40s, and were already decades old back when they remember watching the cartoons on Saturday mornings.

* There used to be a very vocal faction at the [=IMDb=] forums which reckoned that "all of [=DreamWorks'=] ideas were stolen from Pixar" (yes, '''''all''' of them''). At least two of their favorite examples were shown to be nonsense, as they were in production years before and only bore a superficial resemblance, and in any case one of them (''WesternAnimation/FlushedAway'') was actually an AardmanAnimations movie -- the [=DreamWorks=] involvement was minimal.
