* While Spike Milligan's ''Wolves, Witches and Giants'' was a comedy series with funny retellings of classic fairy tales, "The Little Mermiaid" still ended with the Little Mermaid turning into sea foam just like in the original story.

** "Escape from the Citadel is pretty bad. Finn has finally found one of his actual parents, meaning he's not the last human anymore, but his father wants nothing to do with him and tries to get away. Finn's grass sword attaches to the ship Finn's father is on, but the grass sword, and Finn's entire arm, get pulled off, and his father escapes. The only good thing to happen is that the Lich has been changed into an ineffective humanoid form, but how long will that actually last for someone like the Lich?

** In "[[Recap/ThomasTheTankEngineS2E18ThomasComesToBreakfast Thomas Comes to Breakfast]]". Thomas burst into someone's house where a family was going to have breakfast. The mother got angry at Thomas for [[SkewedPriorities ruining their breakfast]] so she slammed the door. And the plaster fell everywhere, including Thomas. Despite Donald and Douglas pulling Thomas back on the track, The Fat Controller lectured to Thomas that he got into a lot of trouble. And now, that the Diesels will have to do the work for Thomas. The last shot of the episode is completed with [[TheFreelanceShameSquad Percy and Toby laughing at Thomas.]]

* The finale of ''AquaTeenHungerForce'' ("The Last One Forever And Ever (For Real This Time) (We ?#@!! Mean It)") [[spoiler:had Frylock dying because the power in his jewel was giving out. Shake finds himself in a similar situation and accompanies the only person capable of going into space to retrieve a replacement jewel from the giant mother clam in which it is entombed--Meatwad. He succeeds, but Shake is gobbled up by minion clams (he's allergic to shellfish) and by time Meatwad returns, Frylock dies as Meatwad forgot to bring the jewel with him. Meatwad gets married and has two kids; he takes the family to the house where he lived with his Aqua Teen mates, but with nobody there any longer (even Carl), he sadly packs the family in the car and leaves.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wolverine and the X-Men}}'' ended with [[MacGuffinGirl Jean]] back, and the the BadFuture averted. However, [[spoiler: [[DefrostingIceQueen Emma Frost]] [[RedemptionEqualsDeath is dead,]] [[UglyCute Squidboy]] and his mom are implied to be dead, due to a GoryDiscretionShot, a probable thousand or so of mutants have been slaughtered, Angel is still under [[ManipulativeBastard Sinister's]] control, and [[CrystalSpiresAndTogas Genosha]], the only completely safe haven for mutants, has been leveled. Oh and that whole, BadFuture averted thing I said earlier? Yeah, well there's a new one where Apocalypse is now dictator of the world.]] But hey, the producers set that up so it could all be resolved for season 2. I mean, [[TemptingFate there's no way]] [[ExecutiveMeddling the show]] [[ScrewedByTheNetwork will be cancelled]] [[CutShort on a cliffhanger this enormous]].

* ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'': ** Episode 11 is literally titled "Downer Ending." ** The 11th episode of Season 2 continues in the vein, with Bojack utterly destroying his relationship with [[OldFlame his old friend Charlotte]] by seemingly trying to (seemingly) [[WhatTheHellHero sleep with her 17 year old daughter, Penny.]]

The Pink Panther
Added DiffLines:
* Quite a few ''WesternAnimation/ThePinkPanther'' shorts. Some of the most memorable: ** Pink enters a shrine and emerges cursed to morph into different animals every few seconds. ** While trying to kill a fly, he is swallowed alive by a vacuum cleaner, which then sucks up the entire scenery and finally ''itself''. ** After spending an entire episode cleaning up a polluted city as punishment for littering, a TickertapeParade is thrown in his honor - after which [[AllForNothing he is forced to clean up the city]] ''[[AllForNothing again]]''.

Pigeon Man is a bittersweet ending.
** "Arnold Betrays Iggy": ends with Arnold, finally fed up with the HumiliationConga Iggy put him through, angrily breaks off ties with him for forcing him to wear bunny pajamas, while Iggy desperately pleads for forgiveness. ** "Helga and the Nanny": ends with Helga's home life back to its regular dysfunctional state. *** "Helga and the Nanny" and "Arnold Betrays Iggy" were actually aired together. ** "The Pigeon Man": That whole episode's a Downer, but at the end, Pigeon Man loses his home thanks to the bullies who don't understand him, after he's lived as a hermit for years to avoid people like them. But the clincher is that all of his pigeons each grab a string attached to Pigeon Man and fly him away into the sunset. Make what you want of the metaphor. There is a small bit of hope since Arnold's kindness convinces the Pigeon Man that not all people are jerks who will treat him like an outcast, but it's still a pretty depressing episode from start to finish.

** In ''Two-Tone Town'', Buster and Babs help obscure Warner Bros. stars Foxy, Roxy, Goopy Geer, and Big Bee get parts on an upcoming television show when they are down on their luck. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, the new show replaces ''Tiny Toon Adventures'' in its time slot, thus cancelling it and forcing Buster and Babs to get jobs at ''[[Series/TheHollywoodSquares Toonywood Squares]]''. This example also counts as a Main/BrickJoke because Buster was worried this would happen to him and Babs at the beginning of the episode.]]

** "[[StanleyCup Stanley's Cup]]," the Season 10 finale where Stan is forced to coach a Pee Wee Hockey team is considered one of the most miserable. One of the kids on the team has Leukemia and promised that he would live if they won a game. Eventually, they are asked to play a game at Pepsi Stadium against another Pee-Wee hockey team, but when the opposing team doesn't show up, the Colorado Avalanche volunteers them to play against the ''Detroit Red Wings''. In probably the most cruel subversion of feel-good sports movies, if not anything ''ever,'' the Detroit Red Wings crush the poor kindergarten team by 31 to 1, all while brutally hurting many children who are less than ''6 years old''. When the Wings win, they have their own cliche "victory scene" while Stan's poor team is left writhing on the floor and quite a few people feeling resentment towards Stan for failing them so badly. The last shot in the episode? The child with Leukemia utters "...no hope..." and friggin ''dies''. Okay, so winning a hockey game won't save a kid's life, but MAN was that the saddest death EVER. Made even worse by the MoodWhiplash of ''South Park'''s closing credits song.
