* On classic ''SesameStreet'' there was a "muppet" called Sam the Robot who would tell anyone who was around that Machines Are Perfect...except he'd always get stuck so he'd say [[BrokenRecord "Machines are perfec-are perfec-are perfec-are perfec..."]] ''[[PercussiveMaintenance *bang*]]'' "Thank youuuu."

Added DiffLines:
* Many talking calculators, clocks and watches would do this when running on a low battery.

Added DiffLines:
* Many screen reader users found this to be the case when using the sound editing program "Audacity." It caused a glitch in the computer's sound card making the synthesized voice lower slightly.

* One ''FoxTrot'' strip shows a toy robot declaring "I AM THE MIGHTY VOLTAR!" several times, its speech dragging down then going back to normal repeatedly. The joke being that the toy's batteries die fast, and Jason has been taking batteries out of the ones that his dad stockpiled for [=Y2K=] to restart it. * ''{{Doonesbury}}'' in the late eighties had Ron Headrest, a cross between MaxHeadroom and Ronald Reagan, complete with Headroom-esque stutter.

Added DiffLines:
** [[GeniusLoci Castle Heterodyne]]'s resident AI speaks with a st/st/stutter (and [[PaintingTheMedium unique text boxes]]) early on, as a result of [[ExcaliburInTheRust catastrophic damage and neglect]]. As the castle systems recover, it becomes less pronounced, until it vanishes entirely.

* When SHODAN of ''VideoGame/SystemShock'' starts getting [[AGodAmI delusions of godhood]] thanks to her [[MoralityChip coding for ethical restraint]] being disabled, her voice becomes very distorted and broken (this was deliberately designed by the game's developers to mimic a malfunctioning sound card) SHODAN is pretty much the defining video game example of this trope and is as creepy as hell. Notably, she didn't have this previous to the disabling, instead speaking in a [[MachineMonotone monotone]] (though more natural) voice.

* In the anime version of ''LightNovel/JinruiWaSuitaiShimashita'', the first hint that there's something wrong with a certain [[UnusualEars cat-eared]] girl, is that her voice distorts whenever she tries to remember her name.
