* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'''s [[{{Delinquent}} Scout]] seems to be a somewhat DarkerAndEdgier, "grown-up" parody of this trope. Even in his mid-twenties, he clearly hasn't matured at all. He's a rough-and-tumble, mischievous baseball fan from Boston in the 60's with a habit of calling others "chuckleheads" and the like, and carries around a baseball bat... which he uses to bash others' head in.

* The title character in ''MrSmithGoesToWashington'' is a grown-up example, as well as all the boys in his [[ScoutOut "Boy Rangers"]] group.

This species has seldom been seen in recent decades, and naturalists have put it on the endangered species list. The All-American boy is [[CaptainObvious male]], almost always white, typically [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold blond-haired]] and [[InnocentBlueEyes blue-eyed]]; sometimes he'll also have buckteeth and YouthfulFreckles. He is marked by his love of baseball, by having a skill with rural machinery and hunting firearms beyond his years, and his propensity to emit sounds like "Jeepers!" and "Gee Whiz!". The All-American boy usually dwells in EverytownAmerica in the heart of {{Eagleland}} within which he is as [[FreeRangeChildren free as the air, pedaling everywhere on his bicycle]] or spending hours having innocent fun in his treehouse. He is naive but charming and always polite (the worst he dishes out is "You shut up!"), and he treats his parents (who most likely are a StandardFiftiesFather and a HouseWife) and other elders with respect. He is probably a [[ScoutOut Boy Scout]] (or a Cub Scout if still in elementary school). If he has a sibling, it will be an [[BigBrotherWorship older brother to idolize]] or a little sister [[BigBrotherInstinct to protect]] -- perhaps both.

* ComicStrip/{{Dennis the Menace|US}} is closer to this than the name suggests, unlike his [[ComicStrip/DennisTheMenaceUK British counterpart]].
