I still don't understand how people are incapable of judging something by target and goal.

If it does what the players behind it set out to do, it succeeds its goal. If it appeals to its target, it also succeeds. If it does anything beyond that, it's a bonus.

If you make a cartoon that is aimed at 6-year-olds and 6-year-olds love it, then that's a success. It is very much not a failure if it does not appeal to 40-year-olds, because the creators weren't trying to appeal to 40-year-olds. But if it does also appeal to those outside of the target demographic, that's more successful. It's hitting stuff you were aiming at and then some.

(This is not a defense of any specific piece because, for one I haven't even seen Samurai Rabbit. It is basic common sense).
