What if you could change the age rating of any cartoon?

For those of you who don't know, in the US we have an age ratings system known as the TV parental guidelines, which is supposed to let parents know what kind of show or movie their kids are watching. These aren't used for the news or sports.

A big bold square with the word TV on top and the rating under it appears on the top left side of the screen for 15 seconds at the start of a show, and a smaller one appears the same way after each commercial break.

The ratings are as follows:
* TV-Y (Made for kids, okay for all ages)
* TV-Y7 (Made for kids, okay for ages 7 and up)
* TV-G (General Audiences)
* TV-PG (Parental Guidance Suggested)
* TV-14 (okay for ages 14 and up)
* TV-MA (Mature Audiences only, ages 17 and up)

However, many people don't like this system, saying the ratings are useless. People also believe shows are being misrated. If you could change the rating of any cartoon shows, what would they be, and why?

I'd say the Boomerang cartoon Dorothy And The Wizard Of Oz. The show is rated TV-Y7 in America, which I don't get. It's clearly made for a younger audience (not that it's a bad thing since I like the show), and in other countries, it's given the equivalent of TV-Y, which is more appropriate.

Minnesota. Or maybe Wisconsin. Or maybe Iowa.
Did Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated ever get a TV-PG rating? If not, give it that because that series makes way more sense for that instead of Guess Who!, who does have that rating.
The same situation goes for The Tom & Jerry Show 2014, which also has a TV-PG (at least in the first season, I haven't checked for the others).

I wonder how seasons 2 and 3 supervised by Ralph Bakshi of the 1967-70 Spider-man cartoon would be rated today especially the episode "Revolt in the Fifth Dimension"?

Right behind you.

I finished the final issue of Gilda And Meek (Gilda And Meek #33 "Dark Child: Part Two: The Pilot, Un-Iverse #47) today. I had been planning it for 30 years, and it ended exactly the way it did in my fifteen-year-old head. This is a milestone I NEVER expected to reach. Huge day for me.
It turns out that, while the CGI for Stillwater is done by Polygon Pictures, the 2D stories told by Stillwater are animated by Studio Fost, who did post production for Wolfwalkers, and have done other works for Cartoon Saloon.
eeeh. I guess i'll skip this season for anime as far as new ones go.

Just compare Xiaolin Chronicles' voice acting to the voice acting of this show. I can't believe someone in the 2010s was inspired by a 1990s obscurity. Apparently not a good sign. How about that?
If there was ever a character like this, I think she'd be a fan favorite.
