** In the episode "The Death Camp of Tolerance," a gerbil named Lemmiwinks is forced to [[OrificeInvasion crawl up Mr. Slave's ass]] and must traverse Mr. Slave's entire digestive system and [[OrificeEvacuation crawl out the mouth]] or else he will die. Amusingly, this entire disgusting sequence is described in a song with a merry, adventurous tune [[ShoutOut reminiscent]] of the soundtrack to the [[{{WesternAnimation/TheHobbit}} 1977 animated version of The Hobbit]].

* ''Disney/GravityFalls'' has [[http://neilblr.com/post/142982667678 "It's Gonna Get Weird"]], a CutSong composed by Creator/NeilCicierega that was going to be performed by Bill Cipher in part 1 of the series finale "Weirdmageddon". It's a tune that alternates between tinkly children's song and jazzy show-tune, with lyrics about [[RealityIsOutToLunch all the weird and terrifying things Bill does to Gravity Falls]].

** Cartman and Cthulhu's Song from ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Mysterion Rises". Super cheery song about, well, [[DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu being friends with Cthulhu]] and going on a rampage with him. Made worse by the fact that it's a spoof of a song from "Anime/MyNeighborTotoro".
* In one episode of ''TheFlintstones'', Pebbles and Bam Bam are found singing what sounds like an upbeat, cheery song about how "Smilers never lose, and frowners never win." Do you know why frowners never win? Because THE DEVIL WILL GET YOU IF YOU FROWN.
* WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow has the "Happy Happy Joy Joy Song". Although the song itself is a deliberately insipid -- though insanely catchy -- song about being happy sung by Stinky Wizzleteats (an {{Expy}} of Burl Ives), it's interspersed with his increasingly insane rantings paraphrased from Ives' role in ''{{Film/The Big Country}}.''

* "Christmastime Is Here" from ''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas''. It has lyrics that describe how wonderful Christmas is ("Fun for all that children call their favorite time of year") but has a very slow, almost melancholy feel to it. This makes it memorable.

** The first season finale has "Poney Pokey", a lively and upbeat song about the Mane Six becoming dissatisfied with the Grand Galloping Gala. It's most evident during Fluttershy's verse while she's chasing the Canterlot critters:

** The season 5 opener has "In Our Town", the cheerful-sounding anthem of Stalight Glimmer's [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill uber-conformist]] FalseUtopia. [[WordOfGod According to songwriter Daniel Ingram,]] it was based on World War II propaganda songs. The main cast clearly notice the dissonance, getting increasingly disturbed apart from Fluttershy, who gets caught up in the mood before Pinkie frowns at her.

The main cast clearly notice the dissonance, getting increasingly disturbed apart from Fluttershy, who gets caught up in the mood before Pinkie frowns at her.



* "Let It Go" from ''{{Disney/Frozen}}'', an uplifting-sounding song by Elsa about finally accepting her powers... which is also about choosing to live a life in isolation and cut herself off from the world. Ironically enough that's ''inverted'' on a meta-level, seeing as by many people it's viewed as an empowerment anthem and has actually encouraged many, which is arguably the ''opposite'' of what some dissonance may suggest it means for Elsa. Also of note is that it was originally meant to be a ''VillainSong'' before the story was changed, and the song led people to treat it as... well, the exact opposite. Irony at its finest.



* ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}} And The Holograms'' songs are almost always cheery, upbeat 80s pop. Even songs like "Who Is He Kissing?", which is about infidelity, and "Nightmare", which is about how Jem's life has become a living hell due to {{gaslighting}}, are in a peppy tone. Certain songs have fittingly slow rhythms though.
* "Remember" from ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom''. Sam even scoffs it as a mindless pop song. It is a depressing song about how a girl was abandoned by a boy. It gets even worse when it turns out it's about Ember's ''death''. {{Fanon}} largely took it as a song about Ember committing suicide however WordOfGod says it isn't quite that dark, though not by much. Ember was an unpopular girl who was asked out by a boy who never came to the date. She was too exhausted to wake up when a fire broke out and died. Suddenly Ember's [[AttentionWhore need to be remembered]] and breakdown when her PopularityPower fails is [[HarsherInHindsight dramatically less amusing]].
* In the ''WesternAnimation/JuliusJr'' episode ''Smellalicious Flower'', the gang tries singing Sheree's special staying awake song, which consists of original lyrics about staying awake sung to ''Brahms Lullaby''.
