** Chandler is pretty much made of this trope, several times during the series he has accidentally revealed his friends secrets. Probably his biggest offence is when he revealed to Rachel that Ross was in love with her. In a final season episode he reveals to a child that they were adopted and then later reveals to Phoebe's nieces and nephew that Phoebe actually gave birth to them.

* Rose on ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'' was well known for her inability to keep secrets, because she was both a BadLiar and a CloudCuckooLander.

* Rose on ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'' was well known for her inability to keep secrets, because she was both a BadLiar and a CloudCuckooLander. The other girls knew about this weakness, and were quick to exploit it. In one episode, Blanche is able to get Rose to blab by threatening to tickle her.
* [[Series/TheBradyBunch Cindy Brady]] was infamous for her love of knowing--and sharing--secrets. One episode had her running around bragging that she knew a secret, just to get her siblings to ask her about it.



* The mid 70s syndicated five-minute comedy ''The Secret Adventures of the Tooth Fairy'' had an installment where a dentist is in a contest to guess which famous person is in the broom closet. He knows and is sworn to secrecy. Eventually blabs out that the famous person is Thomas Edison.

** DW is desparate to be told a secret, any secret, which she then tells other people -- because what's the point of knowing a secret if you don't tell? She eventually learns AnAesop about keeping secrets.

** Pinkie Pie--a MotorMouth and {{Cloudcuckoolander}} extreme--surprisingly averts this trope in a later episode, "The One Where Pinkie Pie Knows." She's tasked with keeping a huge secret, and spends the entire episode trying (and failing) to avoid situations that might tempt her to blab. Pinkie comes dangerously close to cracking several times, but manages to hold in the news (though the pressure literally [[VisualPun breaks her apart]] in the end).



* In the pilot episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheDreamstone'', the Dream Maker insists Rufus promise not to tell a soul about the Dreamstone's existance. Within five minutes, he brings Amberley up to the tower to look.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'': Patrick Star is too dumb to keep a secret. In fact, it was thanks to him that Mr. Krabs found out where their hiding place is at.

* ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye:'' Swerve, by dint of being [[{{Motormouth}} Swerve]], is physically incapable of keeping any secret for more than a few seconds, even his own. Mockingly pointed out by Chromedome in a conversation with Skids.

* In episode 7 of ''Manga/KitakubuKatsudouKiroku'', the going home club members talk about Natsuki's secret birthday party and plans, all while Natsuki is sitting in the club room hearing every little detail of it. She even [[LampshadeHanging tries to point out]] what's so secret about it if she's already expecting it.

* ''AlloAllo'': Lieutenant Grueber had the reputation that he would break the second someone tickled him with a feather, as did Rene himself. Given that they were a Nazi art thief and a French Resistance operative respectively, this was not a good trait to have.
* Rose on ''TheGoldenGirls'' was well known for her inability to keep secrets, because she was both a BadLiar and a CloudCuckooLander.
