** Patty and Selma often get treated as hideous, especially by Homer. While they're heavy, a bit past their prime, and have hairy legs, they don't really look that different from their sister Marge (who in turn, given the art style, may have a case of InformedAttractiveness).

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''
** Wendy unloads this gem (Almost all the kids look almost exactly the same except for clothing and hair color): "I have pimples on my forehead! My bottom teeth are crooked! So what?! You have short legs. And Jason has freckles, and Billy Turner has narrow shoulders. The cheerleaders? Bebe has acne. Lola arms are too short. Nicole's eyes are puffy. Annie has thin hair."

** They also did this in the first Terence and Phillip episode ("Not Without My Anus") with Ugly Bob, a character who was treated as horrifyingly ugly despite the fact that he looked like every other Canadian on the show. He returned in the episode "Royal Pudding", and this time his supposed ugliness caused a monster to [[TakenForGranite turn into stone]].
** Then there was the episode where Cartman went to jail. Most of the kids are drawn with exactly the same shape except for their facial features, clothes, and hair, with Cartman being the only one who is physically larger than any other kid. After Cartman goes away, the kids unanimously decide Clyde is the fattest one left and start calling him "fatass" and the like.
** In one episode the girls make a list that ranks the boys from cutest to ugliest, and Kyle happens to be at the bottom, even though he looks just like any other kid (the list later turned out to be manipulated). When he talks to his parents about it they say he looks fine, and also mention that he has his mother's nose. This freaks Kyle out, because her nose is rather large and stereotypically Jewish, but due to the art style Kyle's nose isn't even visible.

** Butters is [[RunningGag grounded]] in one episode for supposedly making a funny face that ruined his school picture, even though he was only smiling. Butters is understandably confused, especially when his parents accuse him of making the same stupid face when he's doing absolutely nothing.
* In ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'', everyone says that Dib's head is freakishly huge, but it looks the same size as anyone else's head. Of course, the characters who claim that his head is big are usually the same ones who actually believe that Zim's green skin and lack of ears is a skin condition, so they're not exactly masters of perception.

* Peggy Olson of ''Series/MadMen'' is repeatedly criticized and bullied for her appearance in the earlier seasons. Elizabeth Moss, and the character of Peggy for that matter, are at worst in the high range of average in appearance. To add to the irony, one of her main tormentors eerily resembles Pee-wee Herman; Could likely be referencing how men can traditionally get away with being less than dapper and movie-star esque, even in a profession that is known for promoting a rigid standard of beauty and appearance for women as a way to sell products.

** One episode does point out that for someone being the same age as Marge time took a bigger toll on him.

** While Moe Szyslak is quite odd-looking compared to other characters, people act like he's hideous and even inhuman. His PerpetualFrowner expression and {{Jerkass}} behavior only seem to amplify the problem. His appearance is downplayed in the few episodes where he's actually pleasant.

* On ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'', Mrs. Hudson is frequently mentioned to have a bad hip (she herself refers to it as "atrocious.") However, she doesn't use any kind of walking aid, has no visible limp, and seems to get up and down the stairs of 221B Baker Street with relative ease.
