* All three eponymous ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' fit the bill in varying degrees. Rory, the youngest, is the most clearcut example - a CuteBookworm member of the GeniusBookClub and a GoGettrGirl. Her mother Loerlai is a more offbeat example - a BunnyEarsLawyer who is an incredibly quick thinker. Unike her daugther, she is more street smart than book smart. Emily, the grandmother, is a BrainyBrunette of the ManipulativeBitch persuasion, rounding up a trio of book/street/people smarts.

** There's also Chopper, who acts as the crew's doctor. He's also a reindeer, so the brunette part is kind of justified.

* Played mostly straight with the Kanker sisters in ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''. May (the blonde) is TooDumbToLive; Lee (the redhead) definitely has the attitude; and while Marie has [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue hair]] and isn't overtly bookish, she comes up with the smartest ideas.
