* A curious example: There used to be a long series of Disney Comics rooted in their ''Little Hiawatha'' shorts, who were basically family sitcom adventures about a little Native American boy. Whenever there were enemy tribes, dishonest white traders or greedy settlers wanting to steal stuff off tribal lands about, Hiawatha (who is eight, tops) and his little sister Sunflower would be the only ones who would notice. Appearently AdultsAreUseless regardless of your ethnicity.
* Sometimes they show up in ''ComicBook/{{Diabolik}}''. Being very cunning, the titular VillainProtagonist is ''terrified'' by them. And with reasons, given that random kids nearly got him arrested on multiple occasions and got him to crash his car once.

* Being adapted from the book, ''HarrietTheSpy''.
* ''ThePresidentsAnalyst'', stressed out and paranoid, flees his job, slipping out of Washington with a tourist couple he ingratiates himself with, posing as a Presidential staff member interviewing 'typical American families'. At their home he telephones his own analyst, still on edge, and their son listens in with his 'junior spy kit' wiretap. In the next scene Federal agents are at the door, implying the kid ratted him out.

* Penny from ''InspectorGadget'' is a perfect example of this trope. She is always sneaking around the enemy's latest hideout, trying to discover their plans and stop them. She would sometimes narrowly escape capture or detection, and other times would get caught, at which point her captor would utter the quote at the top of the page.

to:

* Several episodes of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' see Huey, Dewey, Louie and Webby fulfilling this trope. Notable examples include "Sir Gyro de Gearloose", "Hotel Strangeduck", "Duckman of Aquatraz", "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Mcduck" and "The Billionaire Beagle Boys Club".

* The main characters of ''ScoobyDoo'' were [[YouMeddlingKids treated this way]], despite the fact they clearly weren't little kids[[note]]they were all teenagers[[/note]]. Hanna-Barbara made up for this with actual kids in most of their subsequent Scooby-clones (See: ''Clue Club'', ''TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan'', and the 80's cartoon called ''A Pup Named ScoobyDoo'' that followed the same characters when they were children.)
