* Bobby from ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' is once put on drugs for what appeared to be ADHD. The drug's actions on his body are rather realistic, causing him to count the ridges on checkers rather than playing the game, to everyone's surprise.

* ''Webcomic/TheBirdFeeder'' has Tina, a hyperactive hummingbird. Clearly set forth in her very first appearance in [[http://thebirdfeeder.com/comic/6 #6]], "Short Attention Span," when a conversation is cut short when she is distracted by something off-panel.

* On ''[[Literature/CliffordTheBigRedDog Clifford's Puppy Days]]'', it is typically possible for one of the puppies to end a conversation they don't want to have by simply asking "Are we going to talk about X all day, or are we going to play?", which prompts an excited response of "Play, play, play!" At least for a little while.

** When [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots1065.html Elan is trying to mend the airship]], he wonders why Bard Camp never explained how to concentrate on a spell in difficult conditions. Cue FlashBack to the bardic instructor explaining exactly that, while Young Elan is wondering what flavour clouds are. Then return to the present, where Elan has forgotten what he's doing because he's ''still'' wondering what flavour clouds are.

Many years later, while visiting her older brother Sou, she finally realises [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone what had happened]] and [[TearJerker breaks down in tears]].

* The closest kind of RealLife ADHD to this trope is ADHD inattentive type, a major subtype of ADHD but only one of three (the other two being ADHD hyperactive-impulsive type and ADHD combined type). It's also relatively rare that a person would encounter someone with obvious ADHD symptoms in public, as most adults with ADHD have by that point developed coping mechanisms to function in daily life. That being said, the effects of ADHD on people professionally and academically are often inhibiting: for instance, in the United States the rate of college graduation among the general populace is about 28-30%, while for those with ADHD, the number is more like 5%.

* Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz of ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' has a bad case of this. He'll be explaining his latest evil scheme, then digress midway-through to ramble about how a particular word sounds weird to him, or pause mid-defeat to exclaim over a band.
-->'''Doofenshmirtz:''' (strapped to a giant rocket) "AAAAAAHHHHHH...Hey, is that 'Love Handel'?"
