* ''Webcomic/{{SSDD}}'': a flashback panel to Norman's teen years showed him wearing one. Considering he's a huge rabbit with buck teeth that stab him in the chest whenever he sneezes they apparently didn't help. This sene later gets a bit of a CerebusRetcon: [[spoiler: They weren't routine orthodontics, but likely part of the reconstructive surgery he had to go through after the car accident that killed both his parents.]]

** One episode revolves around Homer and Marge being framed for a murder committed by a man wearing a giant set of braces, and ending up on death row. [[spoiler: It turns out it was a new reality show from Fox]]

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** In "The Cutie Re-Mark Part 1", one of the unicorns attending Twilight's conference sports braces with an external frame. She was seen in earlier episode "Three's a Crowd", being wary of going through a metal detector.
** In "Parental Glideance", one of the wall pictures of Rainbow Dash as a filly shows her wearing braces that extend from her mouth to her ears.

* One episode of ''KidsIncorporated'' had Renee needing braces. After spending an entire episode angsting, [[SnapBack she got an invisible set]].

* The title character of ''UglyBetty'', which gets pretty bizarre as she keeps them during the show's entire run. You really have to wonder if her dentist is just a con artist.

* Gretchen on ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' has very noticeable braces, but oddly, they're fairly normal -- the main problem is ''her teeth'' are so large and stick out even when her mouth is closed. She's a geeky background character (though a ''bit'' more popular in the fandom since she has a [[ToyShip crush on Dib]]).

** Timmy's friend, Chester, wears what look like regular braces. However, in an episode set in the skate park they kept getting damaged and replaced with ones that did unusual things on occasion, such as sprouting swingsets.

Given that the replacements [[ChildProdigy were crafted by AJ]], it's somewhat justified.

* Orthodontic headgear comes up on more than one occasion on the cartoon ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken''. For one thing, Chicken's friend Earl wears them all the time. There was also an episode where everyone (even Earl) was terrorized by the "Orthodontic Police" and forced to wear various orthodontic devices, all of which were obtrusive and exaggerated-looking. Some of them even came with ''belt harnesses.''

Some of them even came with ''belt harnesses.'''' At the end, Supercow beats the crap out of Red Guy and straps him into an even bigger brace rig, which doubled as a ''cellphone tower''.

** He also wore the same type of braces as a bullied teenager.
