*** Its spinoff, ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' has gained a fandom from parents of the target demographic, and by a small amount of the old show's fans. It also has a huge fanbase of toddlers due to the attractive artstyle, to the point where the series was the very first Cartoon Network program to make it into Nielsen's list of the top 10 programs amongst kids 2-5, getting ratings on par with ''Series/SesameStreet'' and ''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouseClubhouse'' with that demographic.

** Speaking of Britt Allcroft, her other show, ''WesternAnimation/MagicAdventuresOfMumfie'', has a lot of teen and adult fans for the same reason, and the fact that it is more mature than Thomas is. And it's easy to see why-how many preschool shows can you think of where one of the storylines centered around an island turned into a prison and had a scarecrow who thought "come inside" [[FreudWasRight meant something entirely different each time the phrase was said]] as one of the main characters? Her letter on the official website is dedicated to these fans. And let's not get started on the huge fanbase Scarecrow himself has...

Added DiffLines:

* The original ''WesternAnimation/GeorgeOfTheJungle'' (ABC, 1967-70) lost money for Jay Ward because over half of its audience were adults. The 2-to-11 demographic simply wasn't there.

* The [[{{DCAU}} DC Animated Universe]] has some of the most intelligent, mature writing in Western Animation. So it's no surprise ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'' and ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' have huge teen and adult fanbases. Including the comic book geeks who watch these out of sheer obligation.

It also has a huge fanbase of toddlers due to the attractive artstyle. It's gotten to the point where ''Teen Titans Go!'' has become the #1 show among 2-5 year olds on the Nielsen rankings chart on 3 seperate occasions and has ratings on par with Disney Junior shows in that demographic.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' is '''THE''' biggest example of this phenomenon today. A show about magical cartoon ponies that go on adventures and learn about friendship has more teenaged and adult fans than child fans. While there are tons of shows with unlikely fandoms (some of which are listed here), you'd be hard pressed to find a PeripheryDemographic more well known or vocal than the [[FanCommunityNicknames Bronies]]. Even the writers, animators, and staff are aware of how prominent they are and have even had episodes, jokes, and characters that cater to them.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Sidekick}}'' has a largely teenage/adult fanbase outside the children that the show supposed to aim. The reason is because of the show's parodying superheroes, technology and teen culture, as well as romantic relationships and the show's characters' being despite being a sadistic and gross-out show.

* ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'' has fans who are neither children nor religious. The copious cultural-reference {{Parental Bonus}}es
probably help.

** Teenage and college age viewers make up a surprisingly big percentage of ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' viewership (so much that it sometimes airs on MTV) ''[=SpongeBob=]'' is a well-written series, greatly assisted by occasional audience [[WatchItStoned chemical enhancement]] and the use of [[ParentalBonus jokes and concepts that intentionally go over younger viewers' heads]]. If you ever worked in fastfood like many teenagers and college students do you can relate to what Spongebob and Squidward go through at The Krusty Krab. Though that being said, later seasons have led to a very BrokenBase, most will agree SeasonalRot has occurred, but to what lengths is what is debated on.

** ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'' has a large following of teens and young adults that hasn't been seen since [=SpongeBob=] premiered. They enjoy it due to the show being similar to their childhoods and having great writing and humor. It's easy to look on online websites for fans of animation and find people who have the characters of the show as their avatar or claim to be a fan of the show.
