** Also subverted; not only can she switch to a deeper, un-accented voice at will (as shown in the episode, "The Man Who Killed Batman"), but she's actually highly intelligent, not only having been a psychiatrist before her brainwashing, but able to pull off a perfectly good and understated gem heist on her own. The implication is that she acts like this because the Joker ''prefers'' for her to act stupid.

When the character is male, generally expect a halting voice in the low registers, or else a high-pitched quavering, with most sentences beginning with the word 'duh'. When the character is female, expect a high-pitched nasally whine or an even higher-pitched squeak-fest. Often, characters with this voice will use poor grammar. Male characters often substitute the t or d sounds for the th sound, like saying "dat" for "that." A ValleyGirl accent helps for female ditzes.

Very common in animated works, because allegedly such an obvious characterization tool [[AnimationAgeGhetto appeals to children]]. In UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation, this sort of voice was used a lot by characters who were a parody of Lenny from the film adaptation of ''Of Mice and Men''.

* Creator/StephenColbert was raised in South Carolina, but by adulthood, had shed his Southern accent because when he was growing up, he'd seen that stupid characters were frequently shown speaking with similar accents, which led him to imitate the accents of American news anchors.
