* ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012'' is a cute, fun, little show involving pets that get up to silly antics which gets overshadowed by [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic a certain other show that had been going on for a extra two years]] and because the creator's [[WesternAnimation/MyGymPartnersAMonkey previous cartoon]] has [[PeripheryHatedom a very bad reputation on the Internet]].

* ''WesternAnimation/PacManAndTheGhostlyAdventures'' has a rather undeserving PeripheryHatedom. It's a clever, if somewhat goofy take on a 30+ year old video game that had literally no story to begin with, but still manages to stay pretty tongue-in-cheek and not take itself too seriously. The [[SceneryPorn backgrounds are gorgeous]], there are some excellent character designs in regards to the ghosts, and it's up there with ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' for its completely unabashed love of the original game and classic gaming in general, in terms of [[MythologyGag Mythology Gags]], homages and overall style.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016''. Sure, it's rife with [[{{Blooper}} animation errors]], numerous [[AdaptationDecay changes to the original show]] and several very blatant and awkward attempts to be [[WereStillRelevantDammit trendy]], not to mention the fact that all three Powerpuffs were [[TheOtherDarrin recast]] and at least one fan-favorite character (Miss Bellum) never made it to the new series. Despite all this, the art style is very lush and slightly reminiscent of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', not much has changed in terms of plot, and it doesn't deserve the bile it gets from fans of the original show (like ''Loonatics Unleashed'', its {{hatedom}} mainly comes from [[NostalgiaFilter nostalgia sticklers]] who believe that the girls should not be changed).

* ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' has acquired a Vocal {{Hatedom}} mainly because of the more contemporary, stylised Character Designs being very different from the norm as well as the fact that ''The Rise Of Lyric'' Video Game (Which most people associate Sonic Boom with the most) was a rushed glitchy mess. If you give the show a chance there are some well written episodes that might let you redeem The Sub Franchise.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheCrumpets'' had a brilliant, adorable, and peculiar cast, funny jokes, and interesting stories, though it can get too dark for children and its main characters are often jerks at least in season one. It has a very sparse fanbase despite the chock-full content at 104 episodes, a lack of reviews, and is overshadowed by ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheDaltons'' in its native France, not to mention the show didn't localize to a lot of countries nor the English dub never aired in the industrialized Anglosphere, but it's partially available on Website/YouTube officially. It's also not afraid to be progressive in a couple of social topics like feminism and homosexuality.


** It should be noted that one of the biggest reasons why he's so underrated is that [[WesternAnimation/FelixTheCatTheMovie his]] BigDamnMovie is widely considered one of the [[SoBadItsHorrible worst]] animated features of all time. Unfortunately, this is his most well-known appearance, if only because of how awful it is. Some people just don't know the real Felix.

* ''WesternAnimation/SongInTheSky'' is an indie animation on YouTube about an emotionally broken fighter pilot who lives in a post-post-apocalypse and is trying to survive. The first episode sets up fantastic world-building and characterization, and its creators intend to make more!

* ''WesternAnimation/GenerationO'': An early 2000's cartoon about a popular rockstar girl who still has to deal with some real-life problems kids tend to have, such as (to name one example) not being allowed to have her ears pierced. It only managed to get one 13-episode season, but is still pretty enjoyable. Letters to Cleo did a good job on the songs that appeared in the show! Also, Suzanne Collins, the author of ''The Hunger Games'', was a writer on this show.


* ''WesternAnimation/{{Dofus}}''. Much like Wakfu(listed below, taking place in the same universe), Dofus is a character-driven, beautifully animated series, and its movie even moreso. Yet despite having a theatrical release, almost nobody outside of France and Belgium even know about either series. Even the official wikis are wildly out of date.

Much like Wakfu(listed Wakfu (listed below, and taking place in the same universe), universe, but a thousand years earlier), Dofus is a character-driven, beautifully animated series, and its movie (which had a far more serious tone than the series it was based on, despite having the same animation style and characters) even moreso. Yet despite having a theatrical release, almost nobody outside of France and Belgium even know about either series. Even the official wikis are wildly out of date. It should be further noted that the Dofus Movie ("Dofus Book 1: Julith") wasn't very well-marketed in its native France, either, meaning that what was intended to be the first in a series may be the only Dofus film.

*** Unfortunately, the general agreement is that the dub isn't very good (most notably, the English voice actors seemed to think they were dubbing a show aimed at a much younger audience than the one the often violent and risqué series was actually aimed at), which didn't help the series' obscurity in the US.

* ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn'' was a hilarious and clever show, however, unlike the other "big three" OneSaturdayMorning shows, it [[WesternAnimation/{{Doug}} wasn't merchandise driven]] or [[WesternAnimation/{{Recess}} a cult hit with adults]]. It's also the least remembered, and the only one of the "big three" without a video or DVD release, as well as not being rerun as often as the other two, and when it was, it was usually during school or when people are asleep. And it had a great theme song as well.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Spliced}}''. You can't even see it in the US unless you use Website/YouTube or are one of the lucky few to get {{Qubo}}. And the network that airs it in its native Canada doesn't seem too fond of it either. It's funny, takes inspiration from ''Literature/TheIslandOfDoctorMoreau'' for its interesting character designs (read: MixAndMatchCritters you never would've thought of mixing in a million years) and it feels like something that would've aired on Nickelodeon in the mid-1990s. Oh, and Peri is cute.

* {{Creator/Nelvana}}'s ''WesternAnimation/TimothyGoesToSchool''. This show takes place in a WorldOfFunnyAnimals and focuses on a group of Kindergarten students at Hilltop School. The main character, Timothy, is a young 5 year old raccoon who's best friend is Yoko a kindhearted Japanese kitten. Timothy loves helping out his friends and the other class students when something goes wrong or they're in a bad situation. The show is based on the works of Creator/RosemaryWells (who would be involved with the ''WesternAnimation/MaxAndRuby'' series in 2002), with the first two episodes adapting the original ''Timothy'' and ''Yoko'' books while the rest of the shows adapts some stories from the ''Yoko & Friends'' series. A few episodes also had original plots with some good Aesops for children and adults to learn. The show first aired on Creator/PBSKids "Bookworm Bunch" Sunday morning block from 2000-2004, then returned in reruns on Creator/DiscoveryChannel and {{Creator/TLC}}'s "Ready Set Learn" block. The show can be seen on Qubo in America (which doesn't get too many viewers being a {{digital subchannel|s}} and all), and Canadian channel Creator/TreehouseTV has all the episodes on Youtube [[NoExportForYou though they can't be seen outside of Canada.]] The show also airs on Tiny Pop in the UK.
