* Animated TV pilots in general fall into this trope; the reason being that they're sole intent is to get the creator's idea across to executives in hope that they invest into the show's production. This is why most pilots are never released to the public outside of test screenings[[note]] often becoming [[MissingEpisode lost]] in the process[[/note]], as they were never produced for general audiences to begin with.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNIMH'' Subverts this trope. It was reported that the film was produced on a budget of $7 million; which was said to have been around twice as small then the budgets of Disney's animated features during this period. Despite this, the film was heavily well-received by critics with much of the praise being directed towards its animation, which was praised for surpassing the quality of Disney's at the time.

* Speaking of which; many of Disney's animated features following ''WesternAnimation/SleepingBeauty'' are usually considered the black sheep in the company's history as the animation is a noticably sharp down-grade from their previous, and later, titles.


Added DiffLines:

** In all fairness, these production values were pretty much enforced in any cartoon made between the [[TheDarkAgeOfAnimation 60s and 70s]].


Added DiffLines:

* Almost anything produced by, or for, ''Spike and Mike's Sick Twisted Animation Festival''.

* Speaking of The Simpsons, the country of Georgia produced their own CG animated [[ShoddyKnockoffProduct version of the show]] called ''The Samsonadzes''. A quick glance at the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dk9un9tR-g intro alone]] should be a clear indicator of the show's overall budget.

* Played with on shows like ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' and ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty''. While they were produced on modest budgets for Creator/CartoonNetwork and AdultSwim respectively, their [[DerangedAnimation crude and often bizarre]] art styles give them both the impression of being done cheaply.

** ''The Ruff & Ready Show'' had a budget that was tiny even by Hanna-Barbera's standards, around ''$3,000 per shor''t (even in 1958 that was paltry). Compare that to the last ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' shorts Hanna and Barbera made for MGM a couple years earlier, which had budgets of close to $60,000! ''Huckleberry Hound'' didn't fare much better with it's meager budget of 6,000$ per short.

* ''Film/WhoKilledCaptainAlex'' takes the No Budget thing to the extreme, which was only made on a budget of roughly '''$200'''. For context, the film company that made the film lived in slum in '''Uganda''', so you couldn't really blame them for the money issues.
