* 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.

* The world of ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'', where humans are generally stupid, ignorant, and repulsive and the world they live in is polluted and unclean. The episode "Halloween Spectacular of Spooky Doom" featured creatures from another almost hell-like dimension crossing over under the impression that the other side is a perfect world that they can ruin, but they are so repulsed by their first impressions that they immediately retreat back into their own world. The Irkens, the other main civilisation featured, are a cheerfully xenocidal species that decide rank by the individual's ''height'' and whose main form of entertainment is the extermination of entire planets while eating nachos and curly fries. The main characters---being somewhat more intelligent than most of the others---nevertheless only seem able to cope by being delusional (Zim), apathetic (Gaz) or ridiculously persistent (Dib).

*** And the future he shows them is, in actuality, the fate Zim has in mind for Earth when he ''succeeds.''



* After TheMovie, Bikini Bottom from ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' may qualify. Bikini Bottom as shown, is a city full of grumpy people, manchildren, {{Jerkass}}es, [[TooStupidToLive idiots]] and even [[FantasticRacism extreme racist]]s, hating mammalian species (like squirrels) and even other aquatic inhabitants by skin color (see the episode "Sun Bleached").
** It gets worse. In "Sun Bleached", Bikini Bottomites, after getting tanned, start discriminate others by ''their shade of tan''. Something that '''can be gained by lying out in the sun.'''

** The original point was actually {{lampshade|Hanging}}d by [[TheChewToy Meg]] in a later season, her claiming that if anyone else saw her life with the Griffins, Peter would be in jail for a lifetime, Chris would be jobless, and Lois would be alone with no friends or family. Then we get her awesome [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech Reason You Suck Speech]] ''subverted'' by her being forced to be the family's Butt Monkey since it "keeps them together".
