** Take into consideration that most, if not ''all'', of the plots [[CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot probably wouldn't happen in the first place]] if [[JerkJock Kevin]], [[DudeMagnet Nazz]], [[FunnyForeigner Rolf]], [[TheChewToy Ji]][[FragileFlower mmy]], [[EnfanteTerrible Sarah]] and [[LonersAreFreaks Jonny]] (and [[CompanionCube Plank]]) simply ignored the Eds and their scamming (which they sometimes do).

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' has ''The Gungan General''. The story only lasts an entire episode because Hondo's stupid enough to kidnap Anakin, Obi-wan and ''Count Dooku'' and expect no possible repercussions from either side and their equal stupidity in failing to remember that they're three powerful Force users who could easily escape. Even the end keeps the idiocy going, with Anakin catching Hondo only for Obi-wan to let him go because they have no quarrel with him, somehow forgetting being kidnapped and ''tortured''.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheWeekenders'': Usually a good show, but "Tish's Hair" hinges on [[strike:[[HeyItsThatVoice Lil]]]] Tish (the smart chick of the clique, mind you!) reading a sign that's supposed to say "Your hair is the pits" as "Your hair is it" and not notice that it's been obscured by a tree, and hearing Carver's sister's comment "That's the worst I've ever seen" and thinking it's referring to Carver's shirt instead of her 'do.

** "Princess Spike". The conflict of the entire episode only exists due to the fact that the entire cast failed to handle the situation in the most logical fashion. A few examples include Twilight being sleep deprived because she had to plan an entire conference herself, Spike being given extremely vague instructions about what to do while she was asleep, leading to him creating a ton of trouble by trying to handle her duties for her, and Spike attempting to help Twilight sleep by stopping anyone near the tower from making any noise as opposed to ''closing the window'', or maybe just getting her some earplugs.

Better yet, why not cook up a spell to create a sound-free environment, like the one she comes up with on the fly ''two episodes later'' to chat with Moondancer in private?

* This is the premise of the "Chicken Boo" segment on ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''. Chicken Boo is dressed in a [[PaperThinDisguise painfully obvious costume]] yet still manages to fool everyone (except for [[OnlySaneMan one person]]) each time.
** [[TropesAreNotBad And it's hilarious to watch.]]

*** There's a common fan theory that since [[ExecutiveMeddling Hasbro pretty much demanded this episode]] meaning that the writers [[RememberTheNewGuy had to awkwardly shoehorn in Twilight's brother and old foalsitter,]] The team decided to make it a total IdiotPlot [[TakeThat on purpose in order to get back at them.]]



** Hell, this show has so many Idiot Plots and [[IdiotBall Idiot Balls]] that ''it even has its own WhatAnIdiot page!'' [[WhatAnIdiot/MiraculousLadybug Click here!]]

* ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'': The entire, rather frustrating romantic subplot (Marinette loves Adrien, but as Ladybug, is annoyed by Adrien-as-Chat Noir's advances; Adrien thinks of Marinette as just a talented classmate and friend, but as Chat Noir, is head-over-heels for Marinette-as-Ladybug) could have been avoided if Marinette and Adrien destroyed their [[IdiotBall Idiot Balls]] and actually committed to make the connection between civilian and superhero. Marinette is even ClarkKenting.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'', Wonder Man happened this way: Simon Williams goes to Tony Stark to demand to know why he's out to destroy his company, but Tony brushes him off and he storms out; this leads him to seek out MODOK and get revenge. They meet multiple times after Simon's been transformed into an ion-creature, but Tony ''never tells him'' that he only wanted to buy out Williams' company because it was failing financially, but he believed in Williams' scientific developments and wanted to work with him. He doesn't even tell the rest of the team until the end of the episode, after they've been calling him a heartless bastard for ruining Williams' life the whole time!

** "Mikey Get Shellacne" was the {{Flanderization}} for Mikey's stupidity. Not only did Mikey think putting more ''mutagen'' on him would make him a "super mutant" (despite Donnie actually being GenreSavvy and writing "Mikey do not eat me" ''on the jar of mutagen''), he also [[spoiler:turned Dogpound, who was an already sizable threat for the Turtles, into a stronger, faster, more powerful form.]] Coincidentally enough, Mikey gets his hands on the SmartBall minutes later ''after'' this incident (which is a bit of an AssPull considering what this episode has shown).
