There are some strangely specific parts of American culture that are super popular in foreign countries. It's understandable why some pieces of American culture are popular overseas, like the Ukrainian people's love for Ukrainian-American David Duchovny, but other trends are just plain baffling.

Few Americans would expect an ancient Donald Duck cartoon to be an integral part of Swedish Christmas, or that Japan would dig Little House on the Prairie so much that the series inspired a craft quilting industry.

Whether it's due to a cultural lag, or a difference in aesthetic sensibilities, all of these has-been artifacts of American culture still have a devout following overseas. Just remember, with enough sound reasoning, absolutely anything can be considered high art.
