* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Bunnicula}}'' episode "Catula" when Harold tells Chester that Bunnicula's bite won't turn him into a vampire because he chews on his foot in his sleep, which is then followed by a closeup of his swollen, pulsating, blister covered foot.

[[TropeCodifier Trope codifier]] is ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' as it was used extensively in the show, but the trope can be considered [[OlderThanDirt older than dirt]] in the sense that looking at something up close is bound to reveal its imperfections. The creator of Ren & Stimpy says he drew the inspiration from Fleischer ComicStrip/{{Popeye}} cartoons. The phenomenon spawned many copycats of both the {{Gross Up Close Up}}s, [[GrossoutShow the original show's disgustingly revolting aesthetics]] and the [[Creator/BobClampett revived]] DerangedAnimation. Currently, this trope can be spotted in a number of shows and usually leads to visual MemeticMutation.

A close up of something disgusting. For some reason, these pop up most in comedy and horror, though in practice, it's more NauseaFuel than anything else. If done in an animated series, the close-up is usually much drawn in a [[ArtShift much more detailed style]] than the rest of the show.

* In [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Forever Phantom]], we get a [[SarcasmMode nice]] close up of some teenage boy's pussing ingrown/cyst. Not surprising since this series is another one of Butch Hartman's works...

* In ''Anime/SpiritedAway,'' StudioGhibli spared no expense on the scene where Chihiro's parents turn into pigs. There's a very detailed closeup on the food dripping out of their pig mouths and the flying spittle.
