* {{Inverted}} in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy,'' where Peter wears glasses despite being a total moron. His daughter [[ButtMonkey Meg]] does too, but usually isn't portrayed as particularly intelligent. Meanwhile, BrainyBaby Stewie does not.
** In one episode Brian, who varies from legitimately smart to a KnowNothingKnowItAll DependingOnTheWriter, wears glasses to appear smart. Stewie keeps calling him out on this, especially when Brian makes a show of taking them off or adjusting them.

* ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' has Simon and his female counterpart, Jenette. While Simon plays the trope straight by excelling academically, Jenette is [[CuteClumsyGirl a cute girl who's accident prone]] and happens to wear glasses. Which makes her {{adorkable}} instead.

* PlayedWith on ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow''--Junior wears glasses, but his intelligence is somewhere between PingPongNaivete and straight-up DependingOnTheWriter, which the show itself sometimes {{Lampshades}}. If a character ''is'' going to be portrayed as unusually intelligent, however, it's usually him.



* In 2014, then Texas Governor Rick Perry [[InvokedTrope invoked]] this trope for a time.

Added DiffLines:

* [[HeroAntagonist Dib]] from ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim,'' who's the only human smart enough to instantly recognize [[VillainProtagonist Zim]] is an alien ([[IntelligenceEqualsIsolation and suffers for it]]). {{Downplayed}} by [[https://static.giantbomb.com/uploads/original/0/9493/1745894-dib_invader_zim_518477_600_947.jpg the art style]], since his glasses function as an ExpressiveMask and are oddly drawn without temples, making the bridge the only way to notice them visually.
* In ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls,'' both [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Stan]] and [[ScienceHero Ford]] wear glasses in their old age, but the WholeEpisodeFlashback reveals that Ford, being a genius, had them even as a child.
* {{Invoked}} in the ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' episode "The Real You," when [[KidHero Finn]] wore a pair of magic glasses that made him TheOmniscient.
