Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Galavant}}'':
** At the end of the first season Richard becomes this to Galavant.
** Chester Wormwood the evil sorcerer/wedding planner has one of these. He has trouble separating which bits are secret and which aren't, leading to Wormwood exasperatedly explaining that yes, there is the wedding ''plan'', the evil ''plot'' and the color ''scheme'', and culminating in him sending out "Save the Dates" for their army's sneak attack.

** ComicBook/PlasticMan was already pretty funny in his own right, but he still got Woozy Winks, a fat, bumbling sidekick [[{{Expy}} with a personality based on]] [[AbbottAndCostello Lou Costello]].

An annoying, incompetent sidekick for another character -- usually an UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist -- who barely tolerates him. The only talent a Bumbling Sidekick has is the ability to tolerate any amount of abuse -- and he needs it, given how often his "[[WithFriendsLikeThese friends]]" are yelling at him and throwing him face-first into walls after his latest screw-up.

** Even TheSpectre had "Percival Popp, the Super Cop," a dorky amateur detective (but not an actual police officer) who followed him around.

* ''Stolen from Gypsies'' has two, both probably inspired by Baldrick from ''BlackAdder''. The protagonist/narrator has his servant Antonio, and in the story-within-a-story he's writing, there's the character Short Clog. Since the characters in the story-within-a-story reflect the narrator's life, it's likely Short Clog reflects Antonio, although the two are somewhat different- Antonio is a bit of a HypercompetentSidekick, whereas Short Clog is a straight up BumblingSidekick, being a dullard with bad hygiene.

* ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' villain Toad was played this role for Magneto for a very long time. He didn't start to grow balls until the '90s, and even then, he was still the ButtMonkey until TheMovie came out where -- thanks to additional ranine abilities like a "nasty tongue" and spitting goo -- he became quite an effective villain, which carried over into the comics.
* Ukko in ''{{Slaine}}''.
