* ''WesternAnimation/SonicTheHedgehog'' started out as mostly dramatic in Season 1, but added much more humor in Season 2 alongside the drama, shifting it towards dramedy. ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'' also qualifies.

Trimmed examples. Having a few more serious episodes is not really a dramedy.
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' - The specials can be quite dramatic, in particular, the Bardock special and especially the Trunks special.

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' - The specials can be quite dramatic, in particular, the Bardock special and especially the Trunks special.

* ''Series/FamilyTies'' -- Some episodes, the VerySpecialEpisode[=s=] in particular, can be so painfully serious at times. Notably, the 2-parter from 1987 about Alex P. Keaton reflecting on his past to a psychiatrist while mourning the death of his friend Greg, which still keeps some of the comedic tone.

* ''Series/{{Friends}}'', later on, initially it was straight comedy.

* ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' - some episodes of Seasons 3 and 4.

* ''WebAnimation/DSBTInsaniT'' - Every now and then.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' is mostly a wacky comedy, although sometimes there is serious drama.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' - although a comedy at its core like ''The Simpsons'', there were some serious episodes such as "Brian Wallows and Peter's Swallows", "And Then There Were Fewer", etc.

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold''- Episodes like "Pigeon Man", "Arnold's Christmas", and The Journal" are very present within the show and definitely qualify

* ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'' - This show starts out as a dark comedy, but towards the end of the second season, the majority of the episodes became more dark and dramatic as the show went on, having little to no elements of comedy in most of the episodes, turning the show into a Dramedy.

* ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' - In similar vein to Adventure Time, this show has become a bit more dramatic since the end of season two, which had more than several episodes being given near-total seriousness, focusing more on the development of character relationships instead of using humor.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' - Though mostly a comedy show, several episodes focused on Homer's mother, as well as many earlier episodes like "Homer's Odyssey" and "One Fish Two Fish Blow Fish Blue Fish", are more serious, while still with a healthy dose of comedy.

* ''Franchise/PrettyCure'' fluctuates a lot between LighterAndSofter and DarkerAndEdgier not only among its many {{Alternate Continuit|y}}ies but also within each series. ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'' and ''Anime/GoPrincessPrettyCure'' are especially notorious for this.

Note that a dramedy is not just "drama with some comedic elements". Elements of comic relief (bumbling sidekicks, absurd complications, snappy dialogue or pithy one-liners) can appear in all but the very darkest dramas. Even classic tragedies like ''Theater/{{Hamlet}}'' have it. A dramedy must still be comedic in nature, even if it has a serious plotline. Because of this, expect to see them get lumped in with the sitcoms come award season (this can actually serve as a litmus test for if a show is dramedy or straight drama -- can you imagine it being nominated in the same award category as a sitcom?)
