* Roz of NightCourt partially subverted this, being, basically the [[ScaryBlackMan Scary Black Woman]]. She was more of a DeadpanSnarker, but could be quite sensitive and shy compared to Cloudcuckoolander Bull.

* Harriet Winslow, the elevator operator, in ''Series/PerfectStrangers''. ''FamilyMatters'' was originally supposed to be a show centering on her, since she was a particularly popular Sassy Black Woman. [[SpotlightStealingSquad It]] [[AscendedExtra didn't]] [[ExtravertedNerd work]]. Seems to be a family trait, because both Estelle Winslow ("Mama" Winslow) and Laura are textbook examples of the Sassy Black Woman Syndrome.

* ''Series/TheMrPotatoHeadShow'': Given her voice and personality, Queenie Sweet Potato comes across this way, though she's [[AnthropomorphicFood an anthropomorphic yam]].

* Rebecca De Mornay on ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}.'' It seems Jerry wanted to make the show more gangsta in later seasons. Her comedic threats are played off comedy.

* On ''Series/BlueBloods'', Danny Reagan's replacement supervisor (after Sgt. Gormley is promoted to a position in Frank's office) at the 54th Precinct Detective Squad is one of these in the form of Lt. Dee Ann Carver, played by [=LaTanya=] Richardson.

Note that this trope might well be on it's way to becoming a DiscreditedTrope if the poor reaction to the use of this stereotype in the trailer for ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' is any indication.

Added DiffLines:

* The trailers for the ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' suggest Leslie Jones' character is one of these. This hasn't gone down too well - the UnfortunateImplications of having the three white actors play highly qualified scientists and making the sole black character this lazy stereotype is already causing a backlash before the film is even released.

** Stephanie from the SpinOff ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaPresentsTheRidonculousRace'' is another good example. She's basically Leshawna with a slimmer figure and a much worse attitude.
