*** 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 makes Nielsen's list of the top 10 programs amongst kids aged 2-5 every month, gaining ratings on par with ''WesternAnimation/SofiaTheFirst'' and ''WesternAnimation/PawPatrol''.

** ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' started out mainly for children of elementary school age, but with its crazy characters, hilarious plots, and countless pop-culture references that [[ParentalBonus children would not understand]], it has become a huge hit with adults and adolescents. Creator Butch Hartman points out that the success of a show intended for children can be measured by its popularity with older viewers.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' is aimed at adults, but is also quite popular with middle and high schoolers. It's also ''extremely'' popular with {{Yaoi Fangirl}}s, if the amount of {{Slash|Fic}} fanfiction and fanart featuring its characters is any indication. [[HoYay/SouthPark Although, to be completely honest, the fangirls don't just get it from nowhere.]] They even made fun of this in [[Recap/SouthParkS19E6TweekXCraig "Tweek × Craig"]].

** [[HoYay/SouthPark Although, to be completely honest, the fangirls don't just get it from nowhere.]]
** At the same time, despite being the scourge of this very group when it first premiered, WesternAnimation/SouthPark has actually become quite popular with a lot of conservative Christians for its shameless liberal bashing (to clarify, the show bashes everyone equally, in contrast to most adult animated shows which tend to bash conservatives only, because Most Writers Are Liberals) and occasional willingness to portray religion in a more positive light (see the "Go, God, Go!" two-parter and, to some extent, "Red Hot Catholic Love").
** South Park is aimed at adults however you'll find it's quite popular with middle and high schoolers.

* The intended audience of ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' was intended to be elementary and middle school age girls, but due to the show's [[FetishFuel fetishistic overtones]], the show has found its primary audience among college age males. And of course, the show is all about [[ValleyGirl Valley Girls]] doing secret-agent stuff, fighting supervillains and cracking wise, so fans of, say, ''[[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]]'' are inevitably going to love it.

** ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' is an inversion, especially when they got their own spinoff on Sunday evenings. And yes, Pinky's idiocy, catchphrases, and the show's occasional physical violence (against Pinky, usually) was there to keep the kids entertained. But practically everything the Brain said ([[MauriceLaMarche as well as the fact that the voice actor is doing]] Creator/OrsonWelles), AND the pop culture references, AND the often VERY scathing political and social commentary of the show, AND even the occasional TakeThat at the younger viewers, all possibly leads one to believe that the show was really a program for parents that kids would watch and not get 90% of what was going on (making the kids the Periphery Demographic). And even in Pinky's case, the "Are You Pondering What I'm Pondering?" exchanges eventually got extremely out of a child's comprehension. One wonders if the failed ''PinkyElmyraAndTheBrain'' spin-off was green-lit because [[ExecutiveMeddling some executive wanted to increase the kid viewership to a very smart, adult program by severely curtailing the adult appeal in favor of getting more young children watching the program]].
