* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons:''
* Patty and Selma. They're indistinguishable in personality, have identical voices, and exist entirely to say belittling things. Especially if it's about Homer.
** Ditto Reverend Lovejoy's wife Helen. In her first speaking appearance, "Life on the Fast Lane," she introduces herself as, "Helen Lovejoy, the gossipy wife of the minister." She later is hit with {{Flanderization}}, as she seems to do ''nothing'' but gossip (mostly on Marge)
