Go for it.
"It's not that simple. We are all both, good and evil, we have rage and compassion, we have love and hate...murder and forgiveness."
Added a few of the suggested examples.
"It's not that simple. We are all both, good and evil, we have rage and compassion, we have love and hate...murder and forgiveness."
Searching through the western animation folder at the moment.
If you want you just just comment them and I can add them.
"It's not that simple. We are all both, good and evil, we have rage and compassion, we have love and hate...murder and forgiveness."
Just a question but was Young Justice created with teenagers rather than young children in mind? How do we know if a certain shows are created with kids in mind? Because the Young Justice example on that page has like 10 indents trying to convince readers that this show isn't as childish as it leads on. Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend Of Korra was going to be brought up sooner or later so would they fit with Mature Childrens Work as well?
On YJ, I haven't seen more then a couple episodes when I happened to flip to CN, so I wouldn't know. The other I haven't seen any of.

Haven't seen Young Justice, but I know Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra would definitely count.

(TBH, I haven't seen Korra either, but I have seen TLA)

What are the target audiences of the Avatar works?
Standard for Nick, elementary school, I think.

No, the other one.
I believe Avatar is written to suit a wider audience.

[up] Pretty much.

[up][up]Yeah, it always felt like more of a family show than a kids' show. I may be biased because I actually used to watch it with my family.

Just because stuff can be enjoyed by the whole family doesn't negate the fact that children are part of the intended audience. Besides, mature material is part of what separates family shows from children's shows in the first place. I would definitely include the Avatar shows.
But I am a cat, and no cat anywhere ever gave anyone a straight answer
There's a difference between a family show and a kids show. something marked as a family show can get away with a little more because it's intended the parents are there to explain things.
"It's not that simple. We are all both, good and evil, we have rage and compassion, we have love and hate...murder and forgiveness."
Well yeah both Avatar shows can be seen as a family shows but I still get the impression that both of them were marketed towards a younger audience in general. In other words, kids.

How so?

I really don't think Avatar was intended to be a family show. It aired on Saturday morning. Even if we must make a distinction between family shows and children's shows, if it airs in the Saturday morning time slot, I think it's safe to say it's intended as a kid's show.

No, the other one.
I think it's more like both, if you want to be precise. It may be designed to be watchable by kids, but also mature enough to keep older people interested. Either way, watching it doesn't really give any significant surprises as to what age it's aimed at, whatever you think.

What the duck said.
I think the time is long overdue that all "What do you mean, it's (not) X?" tropes were renamed as, regardless of the presence or absence of the "not", all such titles could be interpreted as "yes, this is X" or "no, this is not X" and are thus ripe for abuse. I remember "What do you mean, it's not symbolic?" being renamed some time ago for this very reason; it was being regularly abused to mean "this work is full of symbolism" when what it was actually supposed to mean was "this work is full of what looks like symbolism, but is actually just random stuff". The trope got renamed to Faux Symbolism because of this.

Yeah, I ran into the same problem once. We are currently working on this "trope" and will probably shift to others later.

No, the other one.
I think another problem is the very varying values of vhat "mature" means. I see a lot of things people are surprised are meant for kids, but I see it as obviously child-safe. Historically it's also been a lot more acceptable with less child friendly stuff in works for children.

[up][up][up]So it's true. A duck's quack really does echo.

So that list thing was obviously going to be long but I didn't expect it to be actually in the description of the trope. I think just saying "sex" is too vague; you can have sex in a work that isn't obviously there. That isn't even touching upon the fact that being vague is what got us into this mess. The thing I was trying to do was mark (for the discussion) which Sex Tropes were attributes of a work with this trope. In the description, the tropes from Sex Tropes that aren't attributes of this would need mentioning (note: "mentioning" does not mean "listing out"), I think, since there are far fewer of those than the other Sex Tropes.
Sex/Fanservice spells it out enough, I think.

When does it differ from merely being Parent Service?
