Added DiffLines:

** He is cemented in this role in season seven, as he [[spoiler:absorbs Sam's [[ImHavingSoulPains soul pains]] from his time spent in the Cage in Hell, which ultimately drives him insane. He spends several episodes concerned with bees and monkeys and is only peripherally able to deal with serious issues (like Leviathan) that the Winchesters care about.]]
--->'''Castiel''': Well, I'm still, uh, honing my communication strategy. I haven't even been back to Heaven. I-I keep thinking there are no insects up there, but here we have... trillions. You know, they're making honey and silk and... miracles, really.
--->[[spoiler:'''Crowley''':]] What are you talking about?
--->'''Castiel''': Um, preferring insects to angels, I guess. Here. I can offer a token, if you like. It's honey. I-I collected it myself.

* The Mayor in ''SpinCity'' comes through in the occasional crisis and was much more normal in Season 1, but he's clearly not very bright or rational much of the time.

* While there are few characters in ''TheMightyBoosh'' who ''don't'' meet the full Cuckoolander criteria, The Moon probably tops them all - and he's so popular with fans that he has his own [[http://www.imthemoon.tv/index.html Web site]]. And yes (for those unfamiliar with the series), the ''Moon'', as in the actual celestial object, is a recurring character within the show. He typically appears a couple of times per episode, grinning down benignly from the heavens and treating us to some staggeringly random asides and anecdotes in a curious Eastern European accent. His comments never bear much, if any, relation to the plot (then again, the Boosh is a [[BizarroEpisode Big Lipped Alligator Show]] if ever there was one) although the other characters ''do'' seem able to interact with him on occasion. Tony Harrison once stopped and asked him for directions, only to be greeted by a completely uninvited rant about telescopes. Tony was forced to deem him an "alabaster retard" and move on.

* Wendy's neighbor Noser from ''TheMiddleMan'' seems to do little else but sit in the hallway with a guitar and quote lyrics and pop culture references to Wendy.

* Richie and Eddie from ''{{Bottom}}'' start off in this situation and descend occasionally into [[TheDitz ditz]] territory. When they think they've killed a gas meter reader, Richie suggests they eat the corpse in order to dispose of it; when they go camping, Eddie lights the Sterno without inserting the valve and almost sets himself on fire; and then there's the following exchange over a crossword puzzle:

* Margaret in ''OneFootInTheGrave'' sometimes lapses into this despite usually being the StraightMan (er, woman). Every now and then she will make some wild claim that makes very little sense, sometimes seeming a bit out of character. For example, when talking about friends who have died to her husband Victor, she mentions someone who apparently died of a terminal disease:

%%* Detective Sgt. Luke Harris from ''{{Stingers}}'' slips into this. Not that surprising given he's on the bipolar express.
* [[RobotGirl Cameron]] from ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'' has an odd tendency to go off on random spiels and discussions without any warning, including one instance where she starts measuring the exact center of the house to determine when it will need to be repainted in a couple of decades, or when she randomly goes off quoting Bible passages. In her case, its actually quite justified, as her processor is damaged and thus renders her ''slightly'' unpredictable.

* Many characters on ''TheYoungOnes'' have a touch of this, but the top candidates for Cloudcuckoolander on the show would be some of the Balowskis, particularly Reggie ("Hello, Mr. Pussycat! What you doing in a bucket?") and Brian ("...a helicopter, £100,000, a complete set of steak knives, some of those little black rubber things...").
