* Possibly the UrExample, Fanny Brice's Baby Snooks was somewhere in between this and ConstantlyCurious. Her sole reason for existence appeared to be to drive her father to the very brink of insanity, but she did it without apparent malice -- just pure innocent mischief. And given that the character was created in 1912, and continued to be wildly popular until Brice's death in 1951, it shows that Arnold from ''DiffrentStrokes'' far from created the trope -- he just incarnated it for a new, more relaxed generation.

* ''BeavisAndButthead'': Mike Judge said that dialogue is a better reflection of the real-life Mouthy Kid -- not too clever, relies heavily on toilet humor -- because in reality, kids aren't as smart as a roomful of Harvard-graduate writers.

In the '50s the MouthyKid would have been [[DopeSlap slapped upside the head]] and shipped off to the MilitarySchool. Children were little angels, or at least tried to be (''LeaveItToBeaver'', ''MyThreeSons'', ''FamilyAffair''). That all changed when Arnold on ''DiffrentStrokes'' popularized the MouthyKid. Television parents have been dealing with attitude ever since.

Almost always on the side of good, most likely belonging to the ChaoticGood category, this character isn't an indiscriminate back-answerer like the BrattyHalfPint but rather steps up when an unreasonable or outright abusive authority figure tries to do something stupid or horrible, instead of submitting quietly to their authority. Expect them to be quite [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] about it, at least at first.
