* In ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'', the humanoid Jellyfish that wander Inkopolis have wildly flexible limbs, those being their tentacles, that they can even extend. As for the most of the rest of the species around, it is actually inverted: Despite many of the races around being humanoid invertebrates, the squid-based Inkling protagonists included, they have clearly defined limbs.

* ''VideoGame/BendyAndTheInkMachine'': the titular Bendy and his SitcomArchNemesis Boris the Wolf are drawn like this as an homage to these kinds of cartoons, particularly black-and-white Creator/{{Disney}} shorts.

Added DiffLines:

* The AnthropomorphicFood characters in ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty'' all have rubber limbs. Granted, as most of the foods are drawn with plane black stick figure limbs.

* The Inklings from ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}''. They're humanoid squids explicitly noted to lack bones.

* Happens to quite a few characters in ''{{Manga/Uzumaki}}'', although the effects are significantly more serious than in most other works.

This is when a cartoon character moves without any visible elbows or knees, so his limbs aren't stiff, but rather, bendy, like rubber hoses. Just watch pretty much any black-and-white cartoon, to give a broad example. In cartoons made before [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation the mid to late 1930s']] or so, this was intentional, for practical reasons rather than artistic ones. It all started with ''WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat'' animators Creator/OttoMessmer and Creator/BillNolan, and it was meant to prevent the motion of the limbs in question from looking like they were drawn through a strobe light and flickering -- the basic idea was that if you didn't draw joints, you could make absolutely sure that the limbs in one frame overlapped with where the limbs were in the last frame. Higher frame rates, the development of [[TheTwelvePrinciplesOfAnimation Squash And Stretch]], and an awareness of camera blur sharply reduced the need for this kind of animation as time went on, and cartoon characters all of a sudden had ''joints''. These days, this is a deliberate artistic decision on the part of the animator -- either to creep you out; to create a fun, zany, or cute character; or as a deliberate nod to the GoldenAgeOfAnimation. In the early days, however, it was just how things were done.
