* In ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'', this trope was deliberately subverted as Ashley Tisdale was asked to dye her natural brown hair blonde so they could provide an inversion of the Dumb Blonde, Smart Asian stereotypes. As such, [[AsianAirhead London]] embodies every characteristic of the dumb blonde apart from the actual hair color while Maddie is a good student, very logical, and has the most common sense out of all the characters. One episode featured an alternate reality where things in the hotel were swapped around with Maddie being the heiress and London being the candy counter girl. Here, the trope was played straight with Maddie.

* The Pretty Princess from Perrault's ''Riquet of the Tuft'' is often represented in illustrations as a blonde. She's sweet and kind but ''very'' dumb, and [[HeroicSelfDeprecation quite aware of it.]]



* Charlotte La Bouff from ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog''. None too bright and easy to fool; when hiring Tiana, she hands her a wad of cash.

** [[ViewersAreGeniuses Her book is]] ''The Salvaging of Civilization'' by H.G. Wells, published about ten years earlier. The reference to machines taking the place of every profession is a dead giveaway.
