** The entire [[SpeciesSurname Banana]] (especially Banana Joe) seem to lose all contact with reality when they get excited, scared, or angry.

Added DiffLines:

* Several characters in ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' qualify, but a few stand out in particular.
** The entire [[SpeciesSurname Banana]] (especially Banana Joe) seem to lose all contact with reality when they get excited, scared, or angry.
** Richard goes right up to many strangers and hugs them, thinking that will make them like him. This is justified because he has been over-sheltered by his mother, however.
** Sussie takes this trope UpToEleven. Her eccentric behavior is actually [[spoiler:merely how she wants to live her life. To her, the meaning of life is enjoying it in any way possible, and acting bizarre is her way of doing so]]. That explains a lot. It's also heavily implied that it comes from [[spoiler:her being dropped as a baby. Before that she was a WiseBeyondHerYears ChildProdigy]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheDavincibles'': Leo Davinci. Just to name a few of his quirks: he is a Man Child, who doesn’t hesitate a moment to drag his niece and nephew into his adventures, is not the brightest bulb on the tree, can easily get hyperactive and carried away when pursuing a new relic, and doesn’t really know much about antiques despite running an antique store.



* MadScientist Urpgor of ''TheDreamstone'' plays with this, since while he is completely and utterly nuts, he also often acts as an OnlySaneMan to the other Urpneys' stupidity. Sgt Blob and Nug have shades of this trope as well, even if they are much more lucid. Rufus is a more mundane example DependingOnTheWriter.

* Gregory from ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall'' is a total Cloud-Cuckoolander, [[{{Foil}} in stark contrast]] to his uptight and neurotic half-brother Wirt. He's constantly optimistic, even in the face of ferocious monsters or [[spoiler: being turned into an edelwood tree]]. He also is constantly saying and doing random things, which include stating [[LittleKnownFacts "Rock Facts"]].



%%** ALL HAIL BRAK!



* Star Butterfly, the title character of ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', is "a magical princess from another dimension". She's also flighty, hyperactive, easily-bored, LiteralMinded, has little sense of personal space, and [[FishOutOfWater is slow to pick up on Earth customs]].

** And difficulty as it may be, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Evil Midnight Bomber What Bombs at Midnight]] manages to even out-cuckoo TheTick.

* ''TinyToonAdventures'' had Gogo Dodo, a ''literal'' resident of [=Cloudcuckooland=] (here called Wackyland), in which self-control is a high crime. And ''his'' father, the original Dodo, from the Porky Pig short ''Porky in Wackyland''.

** He is a firm believer in phrenology and candling, outdated and dangerous procedures which have both been declared bunk over a hundred years ago.

%%* Dave the [[SmellySkunk skunk]] from ScaredySquirrel seems to be one of these.
* In ''ScoobyDooMysteryInc'', of all people, ''Freddy'' has been cast as this. The most obvious fit is GeniusDitz, but some of his behavior and ways of thinking go straight into Cloudcuckooland.

** Actually, Freddy had previously been the Cloudcuckoolander in ''APupNamedScoobyDoo'' and ''WhatsNewScoobyDoo'', so this is not new to this series.

* Captain Murphy from ''{{Sealab 2021}}'' is like an unusually clueless child. He thinks you don't have to pay for things bought by credit card, and never quite gets what people want from him. ("If trenches are what Hollywood Actor Beck Bristow wants, then trenches he shall have!")

* Arnold's grandmother on ''HeyArnold'' was ridiculous to the point of dressing up as Mary, Queen of Scots to go downstairs to the dinner table. Indeed, her Cloudcuckoolander status was so central to her character that in one episode, which was about a heat wave, it was so hot that it made her ''sane''.
