** ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'''s conscience Jiminy Cricket is considered by many to be not only the first Non Human Disney sidekick in a long line of many, but also the first wise cracking sidekick who used (what was at the time) modern humor and colloquialisms. To boot, he was also voiced by a radio star who many households at the time would've been able to distinguish: Cliff "Ukulele Ike" Edwards. In this movie there's also Figaro and Cleo.

* The television show ''GetEd'' had no less than four examples of these, spread out evenly amongst the protagonists and antagonists. Series BigBad Mr. Bedlam had a computer AI named Kora who tended to function as the system administrator for his evil empire (while also giving snarky comments on the side). Similarly his toaster apparently grew a skinny body to become the robot Crouch who tended to be somewhat less snarky and more of a suck-up but who nonetheless seemed to be the one who helped designed the vehicles for the evil mooks. One the good guys' side the title character wound up acquiring Torch for his flying surf board, a sentient navigational program that helps to keep Ed in the loop as to his surroundings. Perhaps oddest of all is CloudCuckoolander Loogie's sidekick Dr. Pinch, a catfish puppet decked out in a doctor's outfit. While the idea that Loogie suffers from disassociative identity disorder can be used to explain Dr. Pinch's animated nature, this troper can't help but remember the episode where, in order to sneak into Bedlam's firewall protected Virtual Reality World after each one was locked out, the good guys wound up placing the VR interface on Pinch's head (read that, PINCH'S head, not Loogie's) and the puppet was able to enter the virtual world (as a puppet on BEDLAM'S arm no less) with his personality completely present. Even team brain [[TheSmartGuy Fizz]] wasn't able to come up with an explanation for this.
