* ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall'': Wirt describes his life back in his hometown this way. When we finally do see his home, [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope he's actually pretty well-liked, particularly by his crush Sara]] - [[UnreliableNarrator he's just too insecure to realize it]]]].

* Dobie Gillis from TheManyLovesOfDobieGillis was one of the first examples in television. He lives with his parents throughout the entire series and has little money. He is lazy and aimless. He is considered to have below average intelligence and average looks. His only friend Maynard G. Krebs is an even bigger loser than he is. He chases after girls who often have no interest in him. And the only girl that likes him is HollywoodUgly.

* Being essentially a kid-friendly version of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' has one in the form of Gumball Watterson, who is lazy, irresponsible, unathletic, BookDumb to a sometimes dangerous degree, and the ButtMonkey of the series. And as with Homer, there are a number of minor characters who take this trope so far as to [[ExpectationLowerer make him look good by comparison]], including his father Richard, Anton, Mr. Small, and Tobias.

* ''Series/EverybodyHatesChris''. He lives in a house where both his father and mother don't pay much attention to his needs over his little brother and sister. Speaking of which - his younger brother is handsome and most girls his age and even adult women fall for him the moment they see him. This is especially sad, because most of the girls Chris has a crush on during the show, end up falling for his younger brother in the end. His younger brother is also taller and more imposing. His little sister constantly torments him and gets away with it. Worst case scenario: Chris will get in trouble, even if it's obvious his little sister was in the wrong. He goes to a prominently white school where he is bullied by racist students. He gets no help from the teachers whom project their own racial prejudices on him - especially his homeroom teacher who thinks he's a welfare case, despite being raised in a hardworking two parent home. And worst of all: Whenever Chris tries to do anything meaningful, it always backfires on him by the end of the episode. This theme is played till the series end, [[spoiler:Where Chris doesn't finish high school, so he takes his GED test. Before the results of the test are announced, the show suddenly ends, taking a cue from ''Series/TheSopranos''.]]
