* Inverted in the [[FunWithSubtitles opening credits]] of ''MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'', where the subtitler's sister was the idiot, "Karving" her initials into the moose, causing a violent reaction from said moose.

* Semi-subverted with Mr. Moose on ''CaptainKangaroo''. Not the brightest puppet a hand could control, but he could still trick the Captain to say something that will have ping pong balls raining down on him.

* Inverted in the short-lived animated series ''Frootie Tooties,'' by Honeycombe Animations, where [[IncrediblyLamePun Strawberry Moose]] is explicitly described as the most intelligent of all the animals and has a rather large vocabulary.

* Bullwinkle J. Moose of ''RockyAndBullwinkle'' is the TropeCodifier, if not the UrExample.
* In ''CampLazlo'', Scoutmaster Lumpus is a moose. He is an extremely incompetent, apathetic JerkassWoobie who doesn't even like being a scoutmaster. As a RunningGag, he has trouble identifying Clam's species (a pygmy rhino). On the other hand, as a nature lover, he is useful to the scouts because he fights the system to keep the camp open.

* {{Franklin}} had the titular turtle working together with a new student who, despite being the same age as Franklin and his classmates, easily towered over them. Initially frightened of his appearance, Franklin befriends the new student and learns of his creativity as an artist despite his awkwardness. Of course he's [[ADogNamedDog a moose named Moose]].
* Despite only looking like a moose, YakkityYak is a TooDumbToLive yak for fits in this trope.

* Lumpy from ''HappyTreeFriends'' is the absolute epitome of this trope. He frequently does stupid things that [[LethallyStupid endanger the lives of the other cast members]] ([[TooDumbToLive often even himself]]), and tends to do very incompetent things.

* Averted realistically in ''{{The Wild Thornberrys}}'' where Eliza had to prevent a bull moose from attacking her sister Debbie and their friend Shane when it mistook them for another male moose while they were playing with a discarded moose antler. The moose is portrayed as simply territorial with bad eyesight (as {{Real Life}} will attest). It even offers to help Eliza rescue Debbie and Shane from a cave-in after she, in a moment of {{Sanity Slippage}} and {{Crowning Moment of Awesome}}, scares off another encroaching bull moose by waving and screaming at it.
