This trope was very widespread in TheSilentAgeOfAnimation. It continued to show up a lot in most of Creator/WaltDisney's and Creator/FleischerStudios work in the early '30s too. It had a big comeback when animation got cheap again in TheDarkAgeOfAnimation.

And so, when the story calls for our {{Toon}}s to show off their stuff on the dance floor, you'll see that MichaelJackson had not a thing to worry about. Their movements are stiff, twitchy, and repetitive; often, no two characters will dance to the same beat, and none of them will pay any mind to the kind of music that's actually playing. If a series features more than one dance scene, for example, you'll notice that all the characters waltz the same way they tango. Finally, there are one or two distinct moves per character, which they will repeat over and over and over again. One really must wonder whether this is a dance at all; for all we know, the characters have just finished watching that one episode of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' that gave a bunch of people [[ConvulsiveSeizures epileptic fits]].

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'': The animation is overall excellent and use few loops (mostly for background characters, and too short to be noticeable). The exception is the distant shot of Trixie and the Illusions at the final concert, whose moves are a bit repetitive.

Of course, this trope is a veritable gold mine of NarmCharm. No work that pays homage to the ''{{Peanuts}}'' animated series will fail to mention the piano-accompanied dance scene from ''ACharlieBrownChristmas'', for instance. The Internet has really taken a liking to it, too, the "Peanut Butter Jelly Time" dancing banana avatars (and all variations thereof) and [[CaramelldansenVid Caramelldansen videos]] being the two most noticeable memes.

* The ''WeaponBrown'' comic, a DarkerAndEdgier parody of ''Peanuts'', refers to the scene from ''A Charlie Brown Christmas'' with the neuromuscular syndrome simply called "The jigs".
