* Zaboo from ''TheGuild'''s StalkerWithACrush behavior would be horrifically creepy in RealLife, but on the show it's over-the-top funny (to everyone except Codex, the target of his affections, but even she stops being creeped out and is instead mostly just annoyed by it).

* On a similar vein, much of ''{{Victorious}}''[='=] humor comes from jokes that imply [[BlackComedy mental instability, death, parental abandonment]], etc. In real life, this would be horrifying, and [[DudeNotFunny it's not too funny when they make jokes about it anyway]].
