* ''WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}''. Duckman's two teddy bear assistants' (Fluffy and Uranus) sweeter-than-sweet behavior often results in Duckman ''literally'' pulling the stuffing out of them in the most violent way possible.
* ''WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts'' tend to get this from some audiences. It's both for the fact that they come from the company that makes movies that fall victim to the trope, and being the exact opposite of [[{{WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes}} their Warner Bros.]] and [[{{WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry}} MGM counterparts]]---cartoon shorts involving ''very'' cartoony-looking animals who rarely engage in slapstick, and with a tone that overall seems extremely kiddish.

She's [[OlderThanTheyLook really a 30-year-old]] [[{{Yandere}} insane]] woman who merely [[TheFakeCutie acts like a little girl]] thanks to her massive issues stemming from being a FormerChildStar whose body never matured past childhood.
* The ''Franchise/CareBears'' have a reputation for this (it's what "The Dummi Bears," a ShowWithinAShow on ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'', was inspired by) - and they ''are'' a group of pastel-colored teddy bears, but the extent of its Tastes Like Diabetes status is more a case of the WeirdAlEffect.
** Though the overbearing cuteness in the first two movies are thankfully eclipsed by the films' ''darker'' undertones which, like any series or movie with a VileVillainSaccharineShow position, pretty much kill off any chance of it being ''completely'' saccharine. Plus, in retrospect, the so-called saccharine scenes in the first two movies and the original TV series are nothing compared to the Care Bears movies and TV series of today, as well as some other kids' franchises, to say the least.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGetAlongGang''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' becomes this during Kate and Pal's episodes. The series could be seen as becoming something of it as a whole thanks to the new animation.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''
** Mindy. Between "Wakko's Wish" and the Buttons and Mindy episode "Mindy in Wonderland," one could vomit from the sugar overdose. Especially with the line "Fuzzy Bunny," and, "'kay I love you bye bye."
** Dot. The song "I'm Cute" draws this reaction from Yakko and Wakko as Dot sings about how cute she is.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Chalkzone}}'' is considered by many to be the [[SweetDreamsFuel sweetest and cutest]] of all the Franchise/{{Nicktoons}}. This initially hurt its reception amongst viewers though as many it was too saccharine, but the show has earned itself a decent-sized fanbase over the years.

* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' has Rainbow Monkeys, a line of stuffed animals (and also cartoons, cereal, and even an actual species) which in the show represents everything that Tastes Like Diabetes.
* Parodied in the extreme in 'The Vampire Strikes Back' episode of ''WesternAnimation/CountDuckula'' where they visit the Planet Cute.
** Planet Cute returns in fellow Creator/CosgroveHall production ''WesternAnimation/AvengerPenguins'', where it is villain Caractacus P. Doom's worst nightmare.
* ''WesternAnimation/DanielTigersNeighborhood'': Daniel's pure concentrated cuteness should be illegal in 50 states. Actually, the whole show is pretty saccharine.



* The entirety of ''WesternAnimation/MissSpidersSunnyPatchFriends''. Being that it IS a show for little kids, it's kind of understandable.
* That scene from the ''[[WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983 He-Man]]'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower She-Ra]]'' Christmas special. "Loooove and caaaariing..."

** The SpinoffBabies series, ''WesternAnimation/CaveKids'', is this trope played straight. Technically, it's like the Kate and Pal episodes of WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}} combined with the sweeter parts of WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}, with some mild magical Adventures stuff thrown in. And the villains are NotEvilJustMisunderstood. And each episodes end with a saccharine song reinforcing ThePowerOfFriendship at the end of every episode.

[[note]]Unsurprisingly, the head honchos of CartoonNetwork (who're more inclined towards shows with slapstick and violence like WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls) killed it after just 8 episodes.[[/note]]
* Lila, the "ever so" sickeningly sweet farm-girl from ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold!'', and Olga at times.
** Therefore, the episode where Lila becomes Olga's "little sister" as part of a program is absolutely rife with this stuff.

* Many of the Creator/HarmanAndIsing cartoons had a tendency for this when the duo moved to MGM.
* Along the same lines, one of Creator/TexAvery's earliest [[WesternAnimation/TexAveryMGMCartoons cartoons for MGM]], "Screwball Squirrel", deliberately started out this way with a cute Harman-Ising-type squirrel named Sammy. However, [[TakeThat it is all a set-up for a very rollicking cartoon that deliberately takes jabs at this trope]]. At the end of the cartoon:

It got mixed results with friendship heart light the Trix: while in prison they swore to be way the the magic fountain." The animal designs are this even more evil once they were out, but when they were about to be brought back in two seasons after breaking out they were ''absolutely terrified'' of being imprisoned there again.

** Mindy. Between "Wakko's Wish" and the Buttons and Mindy episode "Mindy in Wonderland," one could vomit from the sugar overdose. Especially
DVD ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' special "All Growed Down," with the line "Fuzzy Bunny," and, "'kay I love you bye bye."
** Dot. The song "I'm Cute" draws
main six as kindergarteners.
* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' is very fond of using
this reaction from Yakko and Wakko as Dot sings about how cute she is.
** A later episode has The Warners forced to see The Snugglers by the censors after the kids gave Attila The Hun a perm.
** "Baloney And Kids" parodies this with the namesake Barney clone.
* Lampshaded in ''WesternAnimation/{{Fillmore}}''; Fillmore and Ingrid need to speak to a store manager regarding a case but they are delayed by a masked assailant. By the time the get to the store, it's closed for the day. Ingrid, the team {{Goth}}, acts like a cherubic waif to convince the store owner to talk to them.

** Parodied in an episode when Garfield wakes up and finds himself in a Franchise/{{Transformers}}-like action/adventure cartoon. He eventually manages to escape from this cartoon, only to wind up in a cartoon that is totally this trope. Naturally, he finds himself running back to the prior cartoon.

* In ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'', whenever Jack Spicer enters the Ying Yang World and comes out good, he is this trope UpToEleven. The monks like him even less than they do when he's normal.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', the ditzy main character Mabel eats a ''very'' volatile sugar snack that causes her to hallucinate that she's in a Lisa Frank parody world, complete with rainbow backgrounds and giant puppies modeled after Lisa Frank's work. There's also a dolphin with quadrupled arms with faces at each end which shoot colorful beams.

* The pilot episode of ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' involves a cartoonist trying to come up with a cartoon about rabbits. Prior to creating Buster and Babs Bunny, one of his ideas is a cutesy-talking baby rabbit. He then scraps it, saying it will give the audience cavities.
** Played straight with the recurring character Li'l Sneezer. Ironically, he's basically the above scrapped character (complete with the same voice), but he's a mouse this time.
