* The Russian adaptation of ''Literature/TheJungleBook'' suffered from this when imported to the US, ruining several sequences (the Red Dogs, Kaa hypnotizing the monkeys) that were effective precisely because the action was mostly silent.
** For that matter, compare the adventures of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEJSFPaHZTU Scamper the Penguin]] with the original Russian [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5aD4FDl9xQ Lolo the Penguin]] - the dubbed characters insistence on narrating every self-evident bit of action will soon drive you insane.

** Continued in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' and this time it clashes much more with the show's grim tone. A shining example are Insecticons, monstrous hulking brutes, the first appearance of which had one creep on the heroes in a horror movie manner. The Japanese actor didn't shut up voicing it as Beast Wars Waspinator, who used to be comic relief.

* The Italian dub of ''Film/BrianOfNazareth'' adds at the end a dialogue between two persons (apparently Eric Idle and John Cleese, since the voice actors also did some of their roles in the movie) commenting that the final scene wasn't that great and they should make a sequel, retconning the finale so that a passerby Egyptian princess saves Brian from the cross, brings him in her land and then Brian and the Egyptian army declare war to the Roman Empire making it fall. The second voice then proposes that it should just be "Brian dies and then he resurrects after some days", but it's turned down because [[ItWillNeverCatchOn "It's not believable"]].

* Disney's adaptation of [[Creator/HayaoMiyazaki Miyazaki's]] ''Anime/KikisDeliveryService'' is guilty of this, as especially evident near the beginning of the film, when Kiki is running past one of her neighbors. In the English dub, the neighbor calls out "Hello, Kiki," and Kiki responds by yelling, "Hi!" In the original Japanese soundtrack, she simply runs past the neighbor, who turns to watch her pass. Also, in the original, Kiki's cat is a quiet companion. In the dub, he often makes snarky remarks. This frequently changes quiet, contemplative moments into ones of humor. However, said dub was reedited in 2010 to remove these lines, matching the Japanese soundtrack closer.

* ''WebVideo/FriendshipIsWitchcraft'' seems to be parodying this. In scenes where Twilight is just walking along, she makes random mouth sounds for no apparent reason. Also parodied by the several background ponies who chatter obnoxiously in crowd scenes for no reason. In one episode, Twilight and Spike pass a dance party, where the ponies are randomly shouting, "Dancin'!" to each other. In another, we fade in on a school classroom, where the students are quietly chanting [[Film/TheWickerMan "Phallic symbol, phallic symbol...."]]

* The Japanese dub of ''WesternAnimation/BraveLittleToaster'' added grunts and voices to characters where there originally wasn't.

* Similar to ''Quest For Camelot'', the animated adaptation of ''WesternAnimation/TheKingAndI'' seems to suffer from the fear that its classic songs cannot hold the audience's attention, and so each musical number also includes one of the many, ''many'' CanonForeigner sidekicks being up to something in the ''foreground'' of each song.

* In the WesternAnimation/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat cartoons, there is a ''lot'' of dialogue, and most of it is pure exposition, with the characters either [[CaptainObvious stating the obvious]] or [[AsYouKnow whats already happening or happened in the plot]]. Its justified by the fact that the series was aimed at kids, each episode was originally aired in two parts (which partially justifies a quick recap at the start of the second part in their original airings, not so much on the DV Ds) and the ultra low budget animation and rushed schedule would've precluded a lot of ShowDontTell techniques anyway.
