* According to the fan section of the PBS website for ''Series/TheNoddyShop'', most of the viewers of the show were surprisingly not in the 2-5 range it was aimed for, but rather in the 9-11 range. It helps that the scenes inside the shop with the toys were very interesting and hilarious, and that DJ and Katie, two of the main kids in the show, were around this age. It was also big with adults, due to it's nostalgic 50's theme and some of the songs being inspired by ''Film/{{Grease]]''.

** It should be pointed out that some of the SuperSetai and KamenRider entries into this trope may be due to air times. Prior to the mid-2000s, they were largely seen as family shows (for Americans, think of them in the same way as TheIncredibleHulk TV show and you're not far off). Originally they aired in an evening time slot, so it would be perfect time for family viewing. Around 1997[[note]] for Sentai only, Kamen Rider first aired in the time slot in 2000, replacing ''Moerou! Robocon''.[[note]], they were moved to 7:30AM and 8:00AM on Sunday mornings, often seen as the SaturdayMorningCartoon equivalent.

* Most shows [[GirlShowGhetto aimed for tween girls]] can be this towards boys. Shows like ''Series/LizzieMcGuire'', ''Series/ICarly'', ''Series/SonnyWithAChance'', ''Series/{{Victorious}}'', ''Series/ShakeItUp'', etc., are watched by a surprising number of boys because they a) like/have a {{celeb crush}} on one or more of the lead/supporting girls in the show, b) want to hear them sing, c) enjoy their antics, or d) all of the above. The FanService itself on the girls helps too. (This also applies to non-Creator/{{Disney}}[=/=]{{Nickelodeon}} shows.)

** Same goes for, in a slightly different context, with ''MisterRogersNeighborhood''. Compared to Sesame Street, Mister Rogers had more {{Affectionate Parod|y}}ies, although [[Series/SaturdayNightLive some]] [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy were controversial]].

* ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' - It has a GettingCrapPastTheRadar page, a former FetishFuel page, and a former [[IncestSubtext Incest Yay]] page -- the only show outside of {{Anime}} with its own page. You can't deny there's a periphery demographic following this show.

* The children's TV show ''LazyTown'' is also known to be popular with teenagers and young adults as well as parents; possibly from it's quirkiness and LargeHam villain. Though given Sportacus's and Robbie's tight pants we can be reasonably sure that some of the [[ParentService adult appeal]] is deliberate.
