* The world of ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks''. Stereotypes of people with black or brown complexions are rampant, corrupt people with lighter complexions and greater wealth [[KarmaHoudini get away with everything]], a group of muslims owning a gas station are arrested for ''defending themselves'' when their station is robbed and the robbers (the aforementioned people with greater wealth) are cheered for stomping out terrorism, and any world where Uncle Ruckus isn't locked inside an insane asylum is a bad one.

* The world of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''. Aku rules everything, and the only weapon that can stop him for sure is Jack's sword. If you're not a slave, chances are you're being terrorized by some two-bit thug. Half the world is stuck in a MedievalStasis, people are enslaved, fragile ecosystems destroyed for senseless industrialization, and the major hubs are Cyberpunk megacities that double as {{Wretched Hive}}s to put Mos Eisley to shame. Oh, and Aku's finally gotten bored of Earth, so he's branching out to other worlds.

* There's a reason why in ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'' business is always booming. The world is violent, cold and crime-filled everywhere. ''[[VirtueIAWeakness Do not show any signs of kindness]]'' or [[TheSocialDarwinist the predatory masses will see it as]] ''[[TheSocialDarwinist weakness]]''. You will be robbed and beaten savagely within ''seconds'' of giving a kind word. ''And that's just life outside the jail.'' Inside the jail, led by a RealityWarper PsychopathicManchild Warden, the inmates (thugs, terrorists, rapists and the occasional comedic - but still lethal - [[EvilOverlord supervillain]]) are brutally murdered by a killer robot, an overly-violent [=MtF=] {{transsexual}}, a MadScientist obsessed with HalfHumanHybrids and a couple of [[CreepyTwins alien twins]] who wreak havoc just ForTheEvulz.

* In season 3 of ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'', the formerly-bustling city of Mainframe has been turned into a pretty nasty Crapsack World. It gets better, but by the {{cliffhanger}} ending of the fourth season, it looks like it might be on its way back to Crapsackdom, as [[spoiler: Megabyte takes over the mainframe]].

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy's'' Quahog, Rhode Island. Everyone is a moron, a pervert, a {{Jerkass}}, a racist, abusive, greedy, violent, mentally ill, morally corrupt, or some combination of the above. [[{{Flanderization}} And it gets worse with each passing season.]] Peter was once a casual family man with a knack for making impulsive choices in his everyday life, often leading to him having to face the inevitable and deciding to set things right, has become a [[PsychopathicManchild manchild with an increasingly violent streak]] who [[KarmaHoudini consistently evades the law,]] frequently gets into unnecessary conflict with others (sometimes outright ''murdering'' them) and could possibly be the major instigator for the town's disharmony without any reprecussions. Brian was a voice of reason amongst the nonsensical nature of the other characters until he turned into a huge SmallNameBigEgo and a jerkass, (at least in later seasons). Not to mention that he's so desperate for sex that he tries to get a hand job from a woman he knew for only 45 seconds and tries to have sex with high school teenagers. Joe used to be nice, probably since he moved from another town, but he's become more of a jerk too (This may be justified since rude and mean jokes about disabilities can turn the most sane person impatient). Although Meg has a kind heart and she isn't a {{jerkass}}, she has rage issues, {{Yandere}} tendencies, and huge self-esteem problems (this was all brought on by the fact that she's the ButtMonkey, and significantly abused by her family as well as the townspeople). Also, the [[AdamWesting mayor]] is a corrupt {{Cloudcuckoolander}} who's gotten away with killing people in public, and a rapist is allowed to walk the streets and live like a normal person (presumably because he has an amusing CatchPhrase. Giggity giggity goo!). Bonnie used to be kind hearted, but she turned out to be a BitchInSheepsClothing who prioritizes her personal desires before her family, even abandoning her own daughter for a supposed life of excitement with Brian, and seems to be intent on murdering Joe. Even Cleveland Brown and his family turned out to be racist idiots who accused someone he knew for decades of a hate crime. [[FridgeHorror That's right, take away the humorous tone of the show, and]] ''Family Guy'' becomes creepier than ''Film/{{Gummo}}''.

* The world of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' has many attractions to it, but at base it's a stereotypical American trailer park expanded to world size: nearly everyone is annoyed, annoying, credulous, stupid, bigoted, and rude; vital human organs are removed from unwilling donators on the city streets, atleast moderately-intelligent animals, including humans, dolphins, and whales are killed for food or fuel; it is implied that there will be no qualms about synthesizing a needed oil in the cells of gene-spliced third-world orphans who would then presumably be violently harvested. The Earth's most looked-up-to figure is a megalomaniacal, genocidal (of both aliens and his own troops), jerk [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking who's lousy in bed]]. And UsefulNotes/RichardNixon, or at least his head, rules the whole lot, his tyranny (as before) limited only by his incompetence and self-hatred. Even SantaClaus is a postal invincible psycho who has turned Xmas into a night of terror and despair, where the populace huddle in military-grade bunkers and hope to survive his brutal rampage. ''Now'' do you want your flying car?

* The City of Townsville in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' is threatened by giant monsters, super villains, bank robbers, natural disasters, and aliens on what seems to be a daily basis. On top of that, the city is [[StatusQuoIsGod always restored to it's normal state before the events of the episode]] with no explanation as to how the damage was repaired so quickly and how the economy hasn't collapsed from this happening constantly.
** More explicit Crapsack Worlds were portrayed in a BadFuture where Him took over, and the Townsville portrayed in TheMovie before the Powerpuff Girls were created. Even the narrator has the tone of "abandon hope all ye who enter."

* Lawndale from ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'', a spinoff of the aforementioned ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtHead''. Daria and her friends are the [[OnlySaneMan sole island of sanity]] in a school where athletic accomplishment is valued over academic achievement, where the popular kids are [[DumbJock too]] [[DumbBlonde stupid]] to actually be malicious, and where the entire faculty is composed of mental basket cases. Back home, their parents are either neurotic or [[InvisibleParents absentee]], and their siblings are vapid. ''Sick, Sad World'', a tabloid shockumentary show that Daria watches, even used to lend its name to a separate trope here (before it was redirected to this one).

* Highland in ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtHead''. The adults are either mean-spirited and ill-tempered or peaceful yet clueless, the kids and the teenagers are stupid and/or violent, and the whole town looks like the extension of a junkyard. However, [[WesternAnimation/{{Daria}} Daria Morgendorffer]], even being cynical and a DeadpanSnarker, she is the exception.
