* Life-action subversion: in the [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism mostly idealistic]] universe of ''Series/TheWestWing'', Toby Ziegler is a grumpy, prickly grouch who is nevertheless easily the most idealistic member of the President's senior staff (which is saying something, considering they're ''all'' pretty idealistic). Indeed, part of the reason that he's so grouchy is that he spends most of his time embroiling himself (oft-times unnecessarily) in shouting matches and heated disagreements with people who are a little more practical than himself.
** He's unhappy all the time because the world doesn't meet his high expectations. [[ShutUpHannibal It's why his wife left him]]. Ouch.

* Like his film counterpart, Grumpy Dwarf in ''Series/OnceUponATime'' is quite sour, a trait that extends to his Storybrooke life as the self-described [[TheAlcoholic "town drunk"]] Leroy. Of course, he wasn't always grumpy. He had to get his heart broken to end up like that.

** In spite of her ongoing HeelFaceTurn, Regina Mills retains her snarky, cynical attitude toward the world even when surrounded by more hopeful characters like Snow White, Prince Charming, Emma, and Henry. She can ''always'' be relied upon for a sarcastic remark whenever, for instance, Snow starts going on about the value of hope.
--->'''Regina''': [''sarcastically''] Time for a hope speech?

** Also Abdul and Sole

** Didn't we know that Jim does get cranky when everyone else can't understand what he is saying?

** ''Make Me Laugh'': A comedy game show which ran in three different versions, best known for its 1979 version hosted by actor and sometimes game show celebrity Bobby Van where the contestant had to be a grouch and try not to laugh as three guest comedians did everything in their power to try to make the grouchy contestants so much as smile or have to stifle a chuckle. Being a grouch on here won cash prizes, with a grand prize if a contestant who could go three minutes (one minute for each comedian) without laughing. The grouchy contestants during the 1979 version, by the way, had to deal with some pretty stiff competition: then-unknowns Bob Saget, Howie Mandel, Gallagher, Gary Mule Deer, Jerry Seinfeld, Yakov Smirnoff, Garry Shandling and Bill Kirchenbauer, among others.
** ''Series/MatchGame'': Richard Dawson, on his final appearances of the 1970s version in the late summer of 1978, was in a very foul mood and refused to so much as crack a smile, despite Gene Rayburn's best efforts. [[note]]Theories range as to why Dawson left, but the most accepted is that he was bored with the show and, given his success with ''Series/FamilyFeud'', his time on ''Match Game'' had simply run its course.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* GameShows:
** ''[[Series/TreasureHuntUS Treasure Hunt]]'': Both versions of the Chuck Barris-produced incarnation employed Barris' security guard, Emile Autouri, the man who was responsible for hiding the grand prize check. He was emotionally stoic virtually 100 percent of the time, and several episodes made light of this as host Geoff Edwards and the cast did everything -- unsuccessfully -- to make him smile. (Of course, this was acting at its finest.)
