* Spoofed in the late ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short "Invasion of the Bunny Snatchers", where aliens are replacing all of WesternAnimation/BugsBunny's adversaries with "pale stereotypes" with dull, non-confrontational personalities. The copies embody every conceivable bad TV animation cliché out there, from being drawn OffModel in [[ThickLineAnimation thick lines]] to fake WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck even having WesternAnimation/ClutchCargo–style [[UncannyValley superimposed human lips in one scene]].

Added DiffLines:

* Website/GoAnimate, due to the technical limitations of it comes off as it.
* ''WebAnimation/GreenyPhatom'' is barely it, with each scene being one frame of MS Paint drawings edited together in Windows Movie Maker.

Traditional cel animation took over and dominated the field for years, until Creator/ChuckJones's ''WesternAnimation/TheDoverBoys'' short reminded people that extreme stylization was okay. Studios like [[ColumbiaCartoons United Productions of America]] [[note]] "UPA" for short, producers of ''WesternAnimation/MrMagoo'' and ''WesternAnimation/GeraldMcBoingBoing''[[/note]], MGM Animation and, of course, Creator/HannaBarbera revived the technique. Initially it was a way to stand out from Creator/{{Disney}}, but in very short order it was recognised as a way to save [[ExploitedTrope time and money]], too.

* Most of the beginning cutscene in ''UltimaVI'' looks like a bunch of paper dolls - the figures are moving, but not animated. This was fairly common in late 80s-early 90s games.

** Played Straight with the early shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show from 1987-1989. I mean it was the very end of UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfAnimation after all. Seriously, go back and look at how many times they reuse a model of one of the characters from an earlier short! It often looks jarring when contrasted with the constant Main/ArtEfolution of the anthology.

* Both ''WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble'' and ''WesternAnimation/HulkAndTheAgentsOfSMASH'' fall victim to this, which is odd since despite being a massive BaseBreaker in terms of writing, ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'' usually has very fluid animation.

* The animation company ''Creator/RabbitEarsProductions'' was well known for using dissolve animation where the characters from the illustrations would dissolve into the next panel whenever there is movement from the characters. Also, the style of the animation consists mostly of moving the camera across the illustrations to give the story a sense of movement.

** This also extended to TheBrakShow, though Brak had much more animation than he did on earlier shows.
