* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheCareBears'', Beastly was written as having an extremely bad short-term memory. To the point where he would often lose his train of thought mid-sentence. He wasn't written that way in other episodes.

A character whose defining characteristic is that he is ridiculously forgetful. Usually played for comedy, this trope does ''not'' cover characters with Alzheimer's or brain injuries that medically impair their short-term or long-term memory.

A character whose defining characteristic is that he is ridiculously forgetful. Not the type who forgets to wear a watch every now and then, but the type who can't find it because he's wearing it on his other wrist. He doesn't just misplace his reading glasses, he misplaces them by pushing them up onto his forehead.

Usually played for comedy, this trope does ''not'' cover characters with Alzheimer's or brain injuries that medically impair their short-term or long-term memory.



* On one of the ''U.S. Acres'' segments of ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'', Wade's cousin Newton, who has a ''really' bad memory visits. He keeps forgetting who Orson is less than a minute after he tells him. One hilarious dialogue between them:

* Decidedly ''not'' PlayedForLaughs in ''{{Film/Memento}}'', where Leonard's anterograde amnesia drives the plot, and the movie's format.

* Nangi from ''WesternAnimation/{{Zootopia}}'' is supposed to have an excellent memory [[AnimalStereotypes due to being an elephant]]. Yet, she cannot remember a single detail about Emmitt Otterton. [[spoiler: [[TheStoner Yax]] does, down to the plate number of his car. And yet, in the end, Yax wishes he had a memory like an elephant.]]
-->'''Nangi:''' I have no memory of this beaver.

* This is the main trait of Lily the fox on ''WesternAnimation/TimothyGoesToSchool''. It's not played for comedy, though, so much as AnAesop that she is working to get better about it.



* Lilly from TimothyGoesToSchool is very prone to forgetting important things. One episode had Lilly take care of the class pet (A fish) which Doris thinks isn't a good idea. Lilly always remembers what to do with her pet fish and proves it in that episode. She can also be seen wearing a string around her hand to remember things and would talk to herself to remind herself.

* Sparadrap from ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'', thus extending his TheWatson role to things that his guildmates have presumably already explained to him previously off-screen and mild cases of ViewersAreGoldfish.
