* In the United States, ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'' had a small fandom comprised of fans of [[Disney/TheLionKing the movie the show is based on]], but was not liked by the target demographic because it was DarkerAndEdgier than most Disney Junior shows, making it one of the factors leading to a ratings downfall for the channel. But in the United Kingdom, it's one of the channel's most popular shows, and is so big that parents reported that their kids began using American pronunciations for animal names after watching episodes of the show.

*** Like ''My Little Pony'' above, the Japanese dub actually failed because it aired late on a Saturday morning and was overshadowed by more popular boy-oriented shows that aired earlier in the day like ''Anime/ShinkansenHenkeiRoboShinkalion'' and the ''Franchise/UltraSeries''. However, it did gain a following of cute-loving girls who are teenagers or adults in Japan.
