'''Mom:''' [=DeeDee=]! Time to go! Have you seen your brother?\\
'''[=DeeDee=]:''' What was that Monkey? ''(listens intently)'' Monkey says that Chubby Cheeses took him into the deepest, darkest shadows!
** Naturally, this is completely accurate.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack'': Lolly Poopdeck is a recurring minor character on the show who is always seen carrying two buckets. Originally being his ongoing job on the harbor, each new episode has him acting as if his buckets are his best pals. Ironically, he is one of the residents who appears to regard Peppermint Larry's candy wife as an inanimate object when hanging with Knuckles in the episode, "Candy Cassinova": "Hanging out with inanimate objects is ridiculous and embarrasing. [[HypocriticalHumor Right bucket]]?"
* There are times in ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' when Tucker shares special bonding moments with his PDA, sometimes with the former treating the latter like a lover.
-->'''Tucker:''' If I don't make it, tell my PDA I love her. The cell phone meant nothing to me.
** Other technology, too.
-->'''Tucker (Talking to a security camera in a loving voice):''' Hello special new friend.
* Ivan Dobsky from ''WesternAnimation/MonkeyDust'' has his space hopper which he calls Mr Hoppy. It was implied that Mr Hoppy was the force behind some of Ivan's crimes; having said that, the results when the prison staff took Mr Hoppy from Ivan definitely count as {{Squick}} and probably count as pure terror: [[spoiler:Ivan fashioned a new space hopper out of some dead guards. Needless to say, people weren't laughing at him then]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TimonAndPumbaa'': In one episode, Pumbaa ditches Timon in favor of a meteorite that fell from the sky. It ends up becoming a better friend for Pumbaa (despite being a space rock) and this causes Timon to get jealous and find a new friend. The friendship is only temporary, since Timon and Pumbaa reunite again and the meteor strikes a new relationship with a cheetah.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}'': Freakazoid once had his own sidekick named Handman in "The Sidekick Chronicles", which happened to be his own hand with eyes drawn on it, and a voice provided by his ventriloquism. What's more, Handman then had an affair with Freakazoid's other hand, who both shared a long, kissing sequence (which was graphic even for a kids show) and married among a wedding made up of the cheering, dressed hands of the guests. Despite losing his sidekick, Freakazoid hopes to gain a daughter... or an upper hand. Unlike his hand couple, however, his feet are in a very rocky relationship.
* While martial arts training, WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo befriended a pebble. It was surprisingly touching.
* A ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' short had Beezy making friends with a sandwich. Naturally, [[BigEater it doesn't last long]].
* In ''Anime/TransformersCybertron'', Decepticon loner Lugnutz' only true friend is his trusty rifle, Dutch.
* Rico from ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'' has an amorous relationship with a doll.

* ''WesternAnimation/FanboyAndChumChum'' has ''a lot'' of these:
** Fanboy went to the school dance with a sentient mop, Moppy.
** Boog treats the Chimp Chomp arcade game as if it's his girlfriend. He does the same thing with his car, Sandy.
** Lenny acts similarly, though to a much lesser extent, with his bike, Bikey.
** Janitor [[Franchise/StarWars Poopatine]] appears to have a personal relationship with his mechanized chair, Brenda.
** Yo's best friend is a pine cone named Ingrid. She also has a digital cat named Scampers.



* In a parody of ''Film/CastAway'', an episode of ''WesternAnimation/BeingIan'' has Ian trapped on a sandbar and talking to polystyrene coffee cup.
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' Almost all of the residents of Ooo are composed of sentient candy, mountains, teddy bears, etc. However, in the beginning of 'The Jiggler', Finn and Jake are rescuing a 'family' consisting of seemingly random food, although one, a watermelon, is named Stanley. None of them are sentient, and yet they have a house and apparently they get into danger constantly.
** "WestermAnimation/AdventureTime" Also has Marceline and her stuffed toy monkey [[http://adventuretime.wikia.com/wiki/Hambo Hambo]]. It was given to her by Simon Petrikov [[spoiler: who became Ice King]] as a child. In the episode "Memory of a Memory" she is seen fixing Hambo and talking to him, calling him her only friend. She loves it so much she broke up with her JerkAss boyfriend because he sold it. Later in the episode "Sky Witch" she travels with Princess Bubblegum to retrieve it from Maja the witch and when they encounter a talking Hambo in the woods she actually believes it could be the real Hambo talking to her, until it is revealed as a trap by PB.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Spliced}}'': The coconut and tire from "Stupid Means Never Having To Say "I'm Sorry"", and the pancake from "Helen".
* Hank Hill from ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' seems to be very attached to propane to the point of him affectionately nicknaming it "Lady Propane" in a few episodes.
** The episode "Sug Night" almost implies that he has a fetish for it.
** In "Chasing Bobby" Hank gets very emotional about his pickup truck "dying".
* Glen's Planet-Man action figure in ''WesternAnimation/{{Dogstar}}''.
* Bob in ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' does this on a fairly regular basis, ranging from a cutout of Keanu Reeves to a night light to the Thanksgiving turkey. It's later explained that this stems from Bob having no friends as a child, and his only toys were a bar of soap and a scrubbing pad.
* ''WesternAnimation/ScaredySquirrel'' has his pet plant Richard.
* Parodied on ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' with the "Log" [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjzBpJ1XYwc commercials]].

When Wax Stan is beheaded, Stan acts like he's been murdered and even goes as far as to hold a funeral for his wax effigy. [[spoiler: After "Not What He Seems", it's implied, and confirmed by WordOfGod, that Stan was using Wax Stan as a replacement for his own long-lost twin brother.]]



* ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien'': Julien tends to talk out his own problems with Amelia, the skeletal remains of the airplane pilot, holding entire conversations although we never get to hear her responses. Even some of the other characters like Maurice have been known to do this.

to:

* ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien'': Julien tends to talk out his own problems Rico from ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'' has an amorous relationship with Amelia, a doll.
* In ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' Dr. Doofenshmirtz's only childhood friend was a balloon with a face drawn onto it, which he talks to and calls "Balloony." In a later episode, he gets another one he names "Balloony 2."
** In "Meapless In Seattle", Baloony returns. [[spoiler: Apparently, he really is sentient and cares for Doofenshmirtz. Or maybe it's just his [[VideoGame/EarthwormJim super-suit]].]]
** In "No More Bunny Business", Doofenshmirtz is upset when Perry
the skeletal remains Platypus doesn't show up on schedule, and creates a new nemesis by putting a [[NiceHat fedora]] on a potted plant, which he dubs "Planty the Potted Plant". It not only defeats him, but is made an agent of OWCA at the end of the airplane pilot, holding entire conversations although we never get episode.
* A spool of thread, which was said
to hear her responses. Even some be Pinky's sister in ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain''.
** In another episode, Pinky's actor is "married" to a sock puppet. When Brain's actor's wife kicks him out, Pinky said that his "wife" did the same... "or maybe she just fell behind the dryer."
* Parodied on ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' with the "Log" [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjzBpJ1XYwc commercials]].
* Mr. Buns from ''WesternAnimation/RubyGloom'' is a weird sort
of cross between this and a [[LivingToys Living Toy]]; when he's on-screen, he seems totally inanimate, and just to be treated as though he's a character by the other characters characters. But the moment he's off-screen, he seems to be genuinely animate, doing things like Maurice have been known stealing buns or, in one case, fencing with Poe.
** This is highlighted in "Missing Buns", when Misery shocks everyone else by claiming that Mr. Buns is just a stuffed sock and therefore irrelevant
to their game of hide-and-seek. By the next morning, she concedes defeat to Mr. Buns and goes to bed.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'':
** Angelica's tattered fashion doll, Cynthia, which she treats as her most valued possession. Later on in the ''TimeSkip'' series, ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'', it is revealed that she still has the doll and still cares for it like she did as a child.
** Tommy's stuffed lion, Henry, as seen in the episode, "Rebel Without a Teddy Bear". Said episode focuses on Tommy going through a rebel phase when Didi considers throwing Henry away.
** Chuckie's teddy bear, Wawa, as of ''WesternAnimation/RugratsInParis''. Said teddy bear was a gift from his [[MissingMom deceased biological mother]].
** Kimi's Superthing, a superhero doll made from an oven mitt.
** Phil and Lil's teddy bear, Bill, as seen in the episode, "Together at Last".
* ''WesternAnimation/ScaredySquirrel'' has his pet plant Richard.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** Once Mr. Burns give an employee of the month award to... ''an inanimate carbon rod''. Later in the same episode, a second inanimate carbon rod is hailed as the one who saved a space mission from disaster, and said rod ends up [[WorstNewsJudgmentEver on the cover of Time]], with the title "In Rod We Trust!" Homer is not happy.
*** In a ContinuityNod, a much later glimpse at the nuclear plant employee chart gives us just enough time to see that Homer is right at the bottom... and the rod is his immediate superior.
** "Are you kids hugging the TV?" (Homer to Bart and Lisa).
** When Marge throws Homer out of the house he creates a replacement version out of a plant and a paper plate. He then freaks out when it falls out of the tree house.
* Mr. Hat and Mr. Twig on ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. At least, Mr. Garrison treats them as real characters. To the point of rushing Mr. Twig to the hospital and accusing Mr. Hat of trying to kill him. It doesn't make things much clearer when Mr. Hat, despite being an inanimate doll who never moves onscreen at all, manages to drive a truck into the side of the jail to break Mr. Garrison out.
** "How the hell did he reach the pedals?!?!?"
** Mr. Hat also manages to vanish from Mr. Garrison's hand when Garrison refuses to take him to a Klan meeting. Mr. Hat is then seen sitting on the ground of the meeting later in the episode, though he doesn't
do this.anything.
** Subverted by a single instance of seeing him move by himself; his eyes turn in "Summer Sucks."
** If you pay attention to Mr. Hat, the pupils in his eyes do change position fairly frequently.
** Mr. Hat also managed to beat up Mr. Mackey whilst removed from Mr. Garrison's hand in "Worldwide Recorder Concert". Not bad for a hand puppet.
** He also shows up in a sauna with John Elway, showing signs of life.
** Mr. Hat is also a boss in the South Park video game, seen piloting a GiantRobot. Mr. Hat is a two-timing whore.
** Cartman's toys in ''1%'' are a much darker example, showing his twisted, schizophrenic mind.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Spliced}}'': The coconut and tire from "Stupid Means Never Having To Say "I'm Sorry"", and the pancake from "Helen".
* Several times in ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'':
** Patrick enters a rock in the snail race. Somehow, "Rocky" ''wins''.
** [=SpongeBob=]'s "Bubble Buddy", though he turns out to be animate after all.
** Nickel Buddy "I'll never spend you"!
** Funny Muffler
** Jerky Pal
** Boo-boo keys
** Snake Eyes
** "We love you!"
** [[MadnessMantra ...POP THE BUBBLE!]]
** Spat from "All That Glitters", thought it also seems to be sentient.
** In the episode "I Had an Accident", [=SpongeBob=] shuts himself in his house with his three "new friends" Penny (a copper one-cent piece), Chip (a potato chip), and Used Napkin (take a wild guess). He acts as though they can speak, and carries on one-sided conversations. ("I could do without your sarcasm, Used Napkin!")
** Patrick at least treats them as being real, tearfully commenting on Penny's beautiful singing voice, as well as thanking Chip when he 'showed them the door', an act apparently done by Spongebob tossing it at the door. Patrick is a [[TheDitz complete idiot]].
** Mr Krabs treats his money like they're his friends, but when the Flying Dutchman gave him the ability to talk to money, they didn't like him because he never spends them.
** Squidward affectionately calls his clarinet [[ICallItVera "Clarie"]], he also sleeps with it in his bed and says good night to it.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheTick'' once created his own CompanionCube sidekick, Little Wooden Boy. And unfortunately was forced to burn him in order to escape the belly of a whale.
** There was also Arthur's nemesis Handy, a hand puppet belonging to The Human Ton.
** In the live action adaptation, The Tick converses and attempts to reason with a clogged toilet.
* ''WesternAnimation/TimonAndPumbaa'': In one episode, Pumbaa ditches Timon in favor of a meteorite that fell from the sky. It ends up becoming a better friend for Pumbaa (despite being a space rock) and this causes Timon to get jealous and find a new friend. The friendship is only temporary, since Timon and Pumbaa reunite again and the meteor strikes a new relationship with a cheetah.
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'', Owen has a very intense emotional bonding experience with a coconut. Later, the other campers [[spoiler: vote it off the island. The last scene of the episode shows Mr. Coconut floating out to sea]].
* In ''Anime/TransformersCybertron'', Decepticon loner Lugnutz' only true friend is his trusty rifle, Dutch.
* Sammy, a dead rat, in ''[[WesternAnimation/WaysideSchool Wayside]]''. Miss Mush seems to be able to interact with him with no problem, and he routinely beats her at cards. "How you do that? You ''dead''!"
* Lampy (not [[WesternAnimation/TheBraveLittleToaster that one]]), Awful Alvin's "sidekick" on ''[[WesternAnimation/VeggieTales Larry-boy: The Animated Series]]''.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' episode "The Revenge Society", the villain Revenge [[spoiler:AKA Phantom Limb]] is completely insane, and the rest of his organization consists of various inanimate objects that he believes are people: Lady Nightshade, a woman's shoe, Chuck, a toaster, and a coffee mug named Wisdom, who he believes is a traitor and executes.
* In an incredibly literal case of this trope, the [[AmplifierArtifact Eliacube]] in ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'' is this for [[BigBad Nox]], who is heartbroken and obsessive enough to hear it [[HearingVoices talk back]]. [[spoiler:In the end, this relationship turns ugly.]]
** Though at this point its rather ambiguous whether the cube spoke to Nox, or whether he was just that insane. It's possible that [[spoiler:Quilby]], the entity inside the cube was speaking to Nox.

** In another game show example, the game board on ''Series/{{Scrabble}}'' was literally a giant cube, which had four sides: two sides with a neon version of the traditional ''Scrabble'' game board (used for the intro), the Crossword side, with a rear-projection monitor which would be visible through a opening door, and the Sprint side, which consisted of a row of monitors near the top. It was all controlled by computer concerning the monitors, but the mechanical side of things [[http://www.buzzerblog.com/2014/08/14/tbt-the-legend-of-the-scrabble-cube/ could be a nightmare]].

* Murasaki from ''VideoGame/SenranKagura'' has her stuffed-bear-thing Bebeby. This is PlayedForDrama, as a [[FreudianExcuse tramatic childhood]] means Bebeby is pretty much the only person who she trusts not to betray her and isn't ashamed to show her face to. She sees Bebeby as a ''very'' close surrogate sister, and attempting to harm it will almost certainly lead to a FreakOut, followed by Murasaki's Root of Calamity activating, which is an excellent way to get yourself killed.

* In ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'', the main characters treat their {{Humongous Mecha}}s like living beings… because thanks to their PsychicPowers they ''know'' that their machines are alive. Rei treats her Unit-00 as a poor puppy which needs to be tamed and properly trained, but Asuka takes insults and diss to her Unit-02 very personally.
-->“Plain?” Asuka growls, not taking the insult to her machine lying down.
* In ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'', Asuka and [[spoiler:Keiko]] note that their {{Humongous Mecha}}s are not mere machines to them, and there's something alive inside them.

* Boo, the Miniature Giant Space Hamster of ''BaldursGate'' fame, served as a biological version of this trope for the brain-addled Minsc. Although it's also entirely possible Minsc was right. It has been [[http://archive.gamespy.com/interviews/october00/minsc/ implied]] by what may count as WordOfGod that Boo was bought from Elminster himself.
