** [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Big Gay Al]] is ''super''! Thanks for asking! So is his husband, [[PetHomosexual Mr. Slave]].

* The Random persona of Blitzwing in ''TransformersAnimated'' is, according to him, "light on his oscillating servos". Unlike his other two personas he has a rather high-pitched and giggly voice and has markedly more feminine behavior. On one occasion he referred to a crane (that he did not know was nonsentient) with "it's big, it's bold, it's sassy!".



** Another gay robot example: The Larry 3000. At the beginning of the series he was AmbiguouslyGay: he was overly sensitive, enjoyed traditionally feminine tasks such as cooking and sewing, and had a love for women's fashion, but nothing too obvious. But later in season two the ambiguity flies out the window and Larry is crushing hard on his macho [[TimePolice time cop]] partner Tuddrussel.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousGender aside, ''Webcomic/TheBedfellows''' Fatigue shows multiple traits of being a camp gay man, such as feminine mannerisms and flamboyant vocal inflections.

* Clarence from ''CodeMonkeys'' is practically the epitome of this trope. He flies around instead of walking (leaving a trail of sparkles), wears a flamboyant light blue jumpsuit, and sings everything he says, most of which is a double entendre referring to how gay he is.

Added DiffLines:

* The local doctor Marian in ''VideoGame/StoryOfSeasons'' is the first openly gay character in the ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' series. He's decked in pink, wears make-up, says things are "fabulous", [[DudeLooksLikeALady could pass for a woman]], and has a boyfriend.

* The ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' SissyVillain known only as "Him". Take {{Satan}}, give him crab-like claws, and dress him in a red dress, thigh-high hooker boots, and makeup - voila. He tends to mince around, explaining his evil plans in a high-pitched, friendly voice that echoes slightly...but when he's angry, or just wants to make a point, he'll abruptly break into a loud snarl that drips with barely-contained fury.
* And before Him, there was the Big Red Guy on ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'' and later ''WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel''. Also a version of the Devil, also fa-''laming''. Anyone else sensing a pattern in classic Cartoon Network original programming?
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFL4YpcK_5g&feature=related "Kings and Queens"]]. Oh, Scrappy.



* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'':
** Cupid is portrayed as being very feminine and campy.
** The campy "gay voice" is quite common in FOP overall. Many generic male characters seem to talk like this for the purpose of making various throwaway gags a bit zanier.



** Stewie himself, now that [[WordOfGay he's been outed by Seth [=MacFarlane=].]] He's [[BiTheWay bisexual]] though.



* Greg Corbin and Terry Bates in ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad''. Roger the alien talks like [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Lynde the trope]], but he himself isn't particularly gay, even though he can play a staggering amount of different personas.
** He does seem to be attracted to a variety of men though, Stan's father comes to mind.
** Early on they seemed to be playing him as at least AmbiguouslyGay, with some BizarreAlienBiology making his sexuality even more confusing. He still has some of that, but more recent seasons have leaned him closer to CampStraight territory. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] for one joke that required him and Klaus to follow a pair of attractive women:
-->"Do I even like girls? I must like girls."
*** It was finally confirmed in a recent episode that Roger is pansexual.
* On ''WesternAnimation/JimmyNeutron'', AmbiguouslyGay Principal Willoughby seems more interested in staging Broadway-style shows than education.

* Xandir the elf P. Wiffelbottom from ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether''.''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' starts out as AmbiguouslyGay, but comes out of the closet by the third episode and is shown to be quite ecstatic about his sexuality and attraction to men for the remainder of the series.



* Snagglepuss from the old Creator/HannaBarbera cartoons. "Exit, Stage Le-eft!"

Added DiffLines:

* ''Theatre/MidlifeTheCrisisMusical'': In the "I Quit" song, a man comes out to his wife and children and progressively becomes more stereotypical as his part in the song continues.
--> "I'm gay! Hooray! Throw my power tools away / I'm not exactly walking out. It's more of a sashay!"

Unlike StraightGay characters, '''Camp Gays''' usually show up on television as caricatures or one-off jokes (see ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' for a few good examples) because they're still seen as AcceptableTargets, even among other gays (or ''especially'' among other gays, for the crime of [[StopBeingSterotypical "making all gays look bad"]]).
