** A notable example was 'The Ducksters', featuring a ShowWithinAShow 'Truth or AAAAAAAAH!'. The penalties for missing answers on that show were ... probably not going to make it past the FCC these days.
** Winning wasn't much better, the prizes had a tendency to be ''dropped'' on you.

* ComicBook/SpiderMan can tend this way, DependingOnTheWriter. At the best of times, writers make sure to show how his superheroic life makes his mundane life more difficult. At the nasty end of the scale, he can't keep a girlfriend ([[ComicBook/OneMoreDay or wife]]), job, or residence; he's roundly hated and on the run from both the police, the mob, and a veritable army of {{Super Villain|s}}; all of his friends are dead, insane, on drugs, insane AND on drugs, or refuse to take his phone calls because he's so unreliable; and he intermittently suffers injuries, power fluctuations, web-fluid shortages, and costume damage. [[spoiler:[[ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan And at one point, his heroism winds up killing him!]]]] How pathetic can it get? There was a three issue run in the early '90s where, because Peter had been so busy with superheroics ''and'' his mundane life, he forgot to do laundry and had to fight crime in a dirty, slightly mildewed costume. ''Everyone'' he encountered commented on the smell and made remarks about his personal hygiene.

** ''Manga/GirlsBravo'' does this with a protagonist who's literally allergic to women. HilarityEnsues.

to:

** ''Manga/GirlsBravo'' does this with a protagonist who's literally allergic to women. HilarityEnsues.Heck the show opens up with him getting beaten up by his friend after walking in on her taking a bath. Typical anime cliche right? Well the thing is ''it was his own house which she broke into and used without his permission''. [[HilarityEnsues Oh the hilarity.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ''Disney/ChickenLittle'' is just full of this. The title character overreacted to something falling on his head and causing a panic in the town and they [[NeverLiveItDown never let him live it down]] to the point that he's pretty much labeled a loon. His father isn't any better, constantly feeling ashamed of him and never even trying to connect with him, least till he manages to win a ball game for his town. [[SarcasmMode Model parent, he is.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/StickinAround''. There are a plethora of times where this show outright is just plain mean and nasty to secondary protagonist Bradley, even in terms of writing. Many of these episodes don't even seem written well enough to pull it off, or even have any good build up or sense of justification, even if it is a kid's sadist show. Local bullies Lance and Russell, though getting their fair share of punishment, seemingly only get it if they mess or get involved with events if Stacey steps in- Many extreme instances involve them either crawling into Bradley's room through his window even while he's sick just to give him a beating, loading him up into a trash can and dumping the entire thing into the public pool, and to where even the series' finale ends with a statue of Bradley receiving a wedgie by them. Granted, there are times where the cast are mean to each other, but how their faults are childish and out of naivety, to where even Bradley's pettiness and self absorbed moments are plain harmless is just jarring and disproportionate to what small mistakes Bradley makes, or how practically criminal Lance and Russell act. Hell, considering what kind of delinquency and extremes of bad behavior those two brats engage in, in reality, they'd be the ones on the receiving ends on a short leash by the law or in juvenile hall.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' - From about Season 4 and onwards.

to:

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' - From about Season 4 and onwards.onwards it's almost like the writers saw Trey Parker and Matt Stone defend ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' by saying they don't sit down and think, "Who can we piss off," and decided to use this as the basis of the show, with it becoming so mean spirited and removing any heart or warmth it had.
