* ''Series/{{Screenwipe}}'': Barry Shitpeas and Philomena Cunk, two brainless characters who pastiche the kind of TalkingHeads found on ILoveTheExties shows. They spend all their time misidentifying shows they're watching, assuming they can even identify the actors (they are under the impression that Professor Brian Cox is [[Music/TakeThat Jason Orange]]), and delivering rambling, brainless commentary that sometimes is unexpectedly profound but is mostly just InsaneTrollLogic. Later, Philomena starts making TV documentaries about subjects like "Time" and "Crime"--in the latter show she said that if 1 in 20 people in Britain are victims of crime, that means [[CriticalResearchFailure 19 in 20 are criminals]], and asks a legal expert questions like "[[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} if a policeman broke the law, could he arrest himself?]]".

** Though at least [[VideoGame/StrongBadsCoolGameForAttractivePeople game]] shows [[spoiler:Homsar]] as being completely intelligent, [[spoiler:it's just that he's speaking another language]]. It's also been shown that he is completely coherent and intelligent on the phone, and is in fact both aware of, and quite distressed by, the fact that he can only speak random nonsense in all other situations.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': Stumpy, to the point of being TooDumbToLive at times. There was one episode in Season 2 which proved that he is literally the "most moronic of morons".

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': Stumpy, to the point of being TooDumbToLive at times. There was one episode in Season 2 which proved that he is literally the "most moronic of morons". However, there are implications that he may have a mental disability, with Mr. Cat even going as far as to call him the show's "token disabled person" because of this.

* ''WebAnimation/PlancysWorld'': The main character, Plancy, is this. The series is made as a TakeThat toward ''WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer'', so Plancy is made to be like Dora, but dumber.

* ''Series/{{Friends}}'': Rachel's sister Amy, who notably thinks Phoebe's name is Emma. When Phoebe keeps trying to correct her, she doesn't at all get the hint and instead thinks she's making a "funny noise."

** Joey, especially in later seasons. His ditziness especially shines through in the subject of geography - at various points in the series he has thought that the Netherlands was where Peter Pan lives, described Chandler's "going to Yemen" ruse for getting rid of Janice as clever because "it almost sounds like a real place", and gone to the bank to try changing dollars into "Vermont money".
** Phoebe frequently comes off as a flaky ditz.
-->'''Phoebe''': I got a call at two in the morning, but all I could hear was, like, this high squeaky sound, so I thought, okay it's, like, a mouse or a possum. But then I realized, like, okay, where would a mouse or a possum get the money to make the phone call?
** Rachel starts out as one as she was clueless concerning any real life skills but thanks to CharacterDevelopment she becomes a lot more sensible and capable

** Sonya is largely defined by her comedy stupidity. There are occasional moments which suggest that she has some kind of brain which she just never bothers to use. but that's unproven at best.

** Maura definitely lacks smarts, and is prone to silly accidents such as knocking her date out.



* Andy of ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'' is completely incapable of picking up social cues or noticing when he's being exploited, and takes the dumbest advice from whoever offers it, to the point of hero-worshipping the very {{camp gay}} Dillon as an oracular source of heterosexual dating advice.
