Added DiffLines:

Granola Girls (and Guys) tend to be WideEyedIdealists or occasional CloudCuckoolanders, and often end up bringing other characters to follow their way of thinking, usually to solve a conflict or think about a situation from a different perspective.

* Music/NeilYoung is an example of a male senior citizen who is this. He's actually referred to lovingly as "Grandpa Granola" by younger rockers.
* Creator/MayimBialik is a mild version, as she has authored books on vegan cooking and attachment parenting.

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'': Sheena, who is a health-nut and hates violence of any kind. Helga even lampshades it at one point: "That's it granola girl, you're dismissed!"
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': Satirized mercilessly in the episode where Death is attracted to a girl who works at the pet store. When he finally asks her out, he discovers to his horror that she says inane things like "you can't hug a child with nuclear arms" and, well, he's TheGrimReaper, what do ''you'' [[TouchOfDeath think he does]]? Followed by a CheckPlease.
* ''WesternAnimation/MissionHill'': Posey. Often subverted for comedic value such as in "Kevin Vs. the SAT" (or "Nocturnal Admissions), in which she heals [[spoiler:a semi-paralyzed pimp ''precisely'' so that he can fully feel the pain of landing after having been pushed off the roof]].

more cynical version. The trope can fully feel the pain of landing after having been pushed off the roof]].be played quite straight, too.



* On ''WesternAnimation/{{Birdz}}'', Eddie's big sister, Steffy, is a staunch environmentalist. The first episode has her throwing paint on models wearing fuzzy caterpillar coats, and another has her boycotting a singer because he uses shampoo with the extract of an endangered plant (even though she had been begging to go to one of his concerts).
* Skye Blue from ''WesternAnimation/CarlSquared.''
* Sam from ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', whom she's self-labeled herself as an "Ultra-Recyclo Vegetarian." though she also blends this with being a goth, or as she puts it Eco-Goth, so wears a lot more black than the average version.



* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'': Oceanbird, Mandark's Mom. His dad, too.

* Male example with TCFM on ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'', who happened to look [[IdenticalStranger similar to Beezy]].

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** "Make New Friends and Keep Discord" introduces [[MeaningfulName Tree Hugger]], who has dreadlocks, is a member of the Equestrian Society for the Preservation of Rare Creatures, is accompanied by sitar music, spends most of her screentime talking about auras and vibes, soothes a [[spoiler:rampaging Smooze]] with "calming auditory therapy", generally acts like she's baked out of her gourd, and ''is named Tree Hugger''.
** Fluttershy herself is often depicted as a Granola Girl, especially in fanarts where she's drawn as a human.



* Jenny from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb''. With a history of participating in various protests along with an inherent desire for world peace, she can be characterized by her hippie-like nature.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'': Miss Grotke, through and through.
* Didi from ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' would be this [[DependingOnTheWriter sometimes]]. Usually when cooking or when it put her at odds with Betty.
* The Hex Girls from ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheWitchsGhost'' are a rock band made up of three PerkyGoth GranolaGirl's. They identify as "eco-goths" and love environmentalism. In future appearances in ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' they don't reference their eco-goth ways despite one of their songs ("Earth, Wind, Fire, and Air") being all about how they love the environment.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** Lisa: she's vegetarian, Buddhist, ecologically aware, into homeopathy and maybe not as smart as she thinks she is.
** She is one-upped by Jesse Grass, who is everything Lisa is and then some. According to him, he is a "fifth level vegan: does not eat anything that casts a shadow."
** Calliope Juniper in the episode "Flaming Moe" is also an example of this.
* Miracle from ''WesternAnimation/SitDownShutUp''.

* Skye Blue Ilana from ''WesternAnimation/CarlSquared.''
''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'' has shades of this, particularly when talking about the unity of heart, body and mind or when she tries to campaign for better food at the high school.
* Miracle Starfire from ''WesternAnimation/SitDownShutUp''.''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' shows signs of this, though she's still getting used to our planet and doesn't really have the finer points down. She doesn't quite have the diet part down though; known for eating many a bizarre food, when they actually go to Tamaran she's shown to have the same level of table manners as the rest of her people (none) and much of their food appears to ''still be alive''.
* The girls of ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' show signs of this, but it is Mandy's mom who plays this trope straight.

This character is not very well grounded, tending to be overly-cheerful and flighty but not [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} scatter-brained]] enough to qualify as TheDitz. They [[AllNaturalSnakeOil love alternative medicine]] and might refer to real doctors as "greedy allopaths," followed by an immediate apology for "being so negative. That's not like me, at all." ''Some''times, she is a StrawFeminist or StrawVegetarian, or something along those lines, though not always.

* ''Film/ChildrenOfMen'': Michael Caine's character Jasper is an aging Granola Guy, living in the woods ''naturally'' with his wife, growing a [[strike:new]] immensely popular variety of pot that has a strawberry flavor. It is implied that he was left without a choice but to withdraw from society after his wife was tortured by the government (Jasper himself had a career as a famous political cartoonist, which also didn't exactly fly under the new regime).

** They ''hate'' trees being chopped down. If you try to trade to an elven caravan anything made out of wood or anything derived from wood (like soap or clear glass[[note]]the production of both require minerals which are purified from wood ash[[/note]]) it will offend the caravan master so much he'll immediately leave. In previous versions of the game visiting elven diplomats would demand that you'd set a yearly maximum quota for tree cutting. And when a world's history is being generated elven civilization swill ''go to war'' over human and dwarven civilizations cutting down too many trees.
