* ''PicketFences'' had a rather dark RealityEnsues take on this. The character involved, who would often spout amusing nonsequiturs in the middle of dramatic murder investigations and was one of the funnier guys on the show, turned out to have Alzheimer's, which led to a tragic downward spiral.

* The Doctor of ''Series/DoctorWho'' is an example of a Cloud Cuckoo Lander that managed to be [[BunnyEarsLawyer pretty damn good at what he does]], but nevertheless retained his disdain for mundane things like reason and reality, even in his more serious [[TheNthDoctor regenerations]] (One, Seven and Twelve in particular), with regenerations like Four and Eleven constantly breaking the Cloud Cuckoo Lander scale. A lot of it is ObfuscatingStupidity to fool his enemies, but most is because he just operates on a different level than everyone else. This could be justified by being a Time Lord, a civilisation that had been making the fabric of time and space their bitch for millions of years before the Doctor was born, except numerous episodes demonstrate that even other Time Lords find him weird.

** The Doctor's various companions are well aware of his... eccentricities, and have to repeatedly justify not only why others should listen to the Doctor, but also convince ''themselves'' why, exactly, they put so much faith into this crazy person, for example the episode "Flesh and Stone":

** The episode "The Doctor's Wife" demonstrates that [[spoiler:the TARDIS]] is '''even more''' of a Cloud Cuckoo Lander than the Doctor, with a heavy dose of TheCloudcuckoolanderWasRight. Having [[spoiler:your mind spread across all of time and space]] will do that to you.

** He actually borders on AmbiguouslyAutistic; he's legitimately bright, but his brain is... not like our brains.

** While quite sane in the first few seasons, Joey ends up fitting this trope in later seasons. His intelligence seemed to drop off and he was very particular about food, not sharing it with anybody and eating quite excessively.

* From British sitcom ''{{Miranda}}'', while best friend Stevie is more of a BunnyEarsLawyer, Miranda ''definitely'' counts. She spend more time messing around in the joke shop than actually working ("How about a game of Biscuit Blizzard?"), has an alarming tendency to burst into song randomly and [[NoFourthWall has no concept of the fourth wall]]. It's [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]] in the Season 3 opener, when Stevie actually quits the shop because she's fed up of Miranda never taking anything seriously. When Miranda later gets a normal office job, her Cloudcuckoolander nature just doesn't fit and she quits fairly sharpish, the pair soon reuniting when they realize just how boring life is without a Cloudcuckoolander to share it with.

* ''TheMiddle'' (the SpiritualSuccessor of ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle''): Brick, who even looks like Dewey, loves books to the point where he treats librarians as some sort of celebrity, has an unusual knowledge of fonts, and tends to repeat things after saying them. These are some of the more normal things he does. ''normal''...

* Ed Norton from ''TheHoneymooners'', many times, although there have been other times where [[TheCloudCuckooLanderWasRight he's right about things]].
* Faith Fairfield on ''HopeAndFaith'' occasionally lapses into this trope (when Hope went off to college and joined a sorority, Faith thought she had joined a Greek cult for four years) though she's usually TheDitz(and she's also a DumbBlonde to boot).
