You've seen 'em before. That great big smile… that [[ChildrenAreInnocent innocent]] look in their eyes that just screams "hug me!" …this is the Cheerful Child. Often female, always younger than 13, and forever with a [[ThePollyanna sunny disposition on life]]. They might, if they're the irrepressibly curious type, know a bit more about the world than respectable people think kids of that age ought to know.

** Trip/Shooti [[{{UsedToBeASweetKid}} used to be this]] before [[{{BreakTheCutie}} something]] undisclosed happened, as shown in flashbacks of his meeting with Alder in the Black and White series. All laughter, smiles, and [[{{LuminescentBlush}} perma-blush]], very striking, compared to his [[{{JadeColoredGlasses}}deeply cynical]] and [[{{Kuudere}} detached personality}]] at present. [[{{DefrostingIceQueen}} He warms up a little]] as time goes on, though.

* ''Film/{{Hook}}'': Maggie Banning is an unusual example, as she ''is'' in peril for much of the film as a prisoner of Captain Hook. It's her innocent, positive outlook on life that allows her to see through his claim that her parents don't love her, and she lashes out at him for trying to manipulate both her and Jack. She has an idea about what's wrong with the villain, too: "You need a mommy very badly!" She's not too far off -- [[spoiler: when the Croc comes back to life and makes a meal out of Hook, his last words are "I want my mommy!"]]

* Lian Harper of ''Creator/DCComics'', which serves as a testament to [[ComicBook/GreenArrow Roy's]] parenting skills. Naturally, once the DarkerAndEdgier hit hard, there was no room for little Lian, who got [[DroppedABridgeOnHim a very large bridge dropped on her]]. Just so her father could descend into drug-fueled angst. And then she got erased from existence completely.

* Pistol, Pete's daughter on ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'', smiles, giggles, squeals, bounces, and [[GenkiGirl bursts with energy]] almost all the time.



* WesternAnimation/RubyGloom. She's a 6 year old girl who has Gothic and creepy tastes and interests. Despite this, she's rather chipper and optimistic.
