** The same can be said about SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra.'' To put it in perspective, the 1-hour series premiere had a 1.01 adults 18-49 rating out of its 4.5 million viewers, and another episode had almost 4.1 million total and a 1.13 adults 18-49 rating. Teenagers are also loving it as well, to the point where it's scheduled to start airing on [[TeenNick The Degrassi Network]]!

** In the case of Creator/AdultSwim, ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' gained a rather massive female fanbase during its run, thanks to its many [[HoYay/Metalocalypse ho yay]] moments.

** Sadly, despite the large demographic, this hasn't prevented male viewers open about their love of the show from being bullied for liking a "girl's show", as when an 11-year old boy tried to [[http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20783199,00.html commit suicide]] when 20 other students harassed him and called him gay because of his open passion for the program. The Brony fanbase itself also isn't particularly well-liked either, being a [[FandomRivalry lightning rod]] for many other contemporary fanbases. Many MoralGuardians have also accused them of ruining the franchise for kids.

* Similarly, ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' was aimed at young and pre-teen boys, but is quite popular with teens and adults, given its great character reinterprataions and development, awesome script and voice acting, wonderful tributes to classic Spidey stories and lore, and the surprisingly large amount of joke it got away with. It even holds a good following after its [[TooGoodToLast premature cancelation]].

* ''TheSimpsons'' is quite possibly the TropeCodifier for animated shows. For a series that, to judge by its general content and style when it premiered in 1989, was originally aimed at working-class Baby Boomers, ''The Simpsons'' has cultivated a massive fanbase that cuts across all (or almost all) socioeconomic, ethnic, and generational lines. Most ironically for a program that was patterned as an animated ''MarriedWithChildren'', affluent college students now love it because of its nerdy AuthorAppeal (courtesy of its team of Ivy League-educated writers); this intellectual/hipster bent was always a part of the show, but has grown more and more prominent as the years have gone by. Equally ironically, this may well bring Matt Groening's body of work full-circle, since his 1980s comic strip ''ComicStrip/LifeInHell'', to which ''The Simpsons'' is an obvious SpiritualSuccessor, was definitely aimed at cynical college kids.

* ''WesternAnimation/SagwaTheChineseSiameseCat'' is a PBS Kids show that is generally very well-liked for it's good writing, likeable characters, and beautiful animation, as well as the fact that it teaches things about Chinese culture.
