Follow TV Tropes
Uhmmm... What? First of all, other shows Getting Crap Past the Radar and averting Negative Continuity doesn't make Breaking the Fourth Wall and Shout-Outs less unusual, that's a Non Sequitur. Secondly, Phineas And Ferb didn't originate or popularize any of the things listed, so I fail to see how this relates to the trope at all.
Pulling these because of the edit war. Discuss them here.
Personally, they're closer to Jump the Shark and seem less this trope. The shows have declined in quality, they haven't looked worse in comparison.
Also pulled these:
As written, none of them are this trope. They're all just describing the work as being groundbreaking... and then leaving out the entire "Is Unfunny" part of the title. Don't know if they're examples or not, but they need to be rewritten.
I really think My Little Pony needs to be on here. It's a mix between this, Deader Than Disco and maybe even Internet Backdraft. I do not mean to offend anyone, but it is the sad truth. Back in 2010, you probably just heard "brony" and just simply ignored it, then in 2011 bronies got more popular, and by the end of 2012 people were ripping their hair out at the thought of the word. Even bronies themselves are. Again, I do not wish to offend anyone.
But the trope is about something that was new and fresh when it came out, now looking outdated and trite due to so many other works copying the main aspects of the original work. Why would MLP:FIM belong in this trope?

How well does it match the trope?
