* In [[WesternAnimaion/The7D The 7D]] episode "Oh Happy Grumpy", Grumpy is [[spoiler: not really]] cursed by a [[spoiler: woman pretending to be a]] witch so he can't get angry or be turned into melted cheese. After being sung a song by Happy, Grumpy puts on a facade of happiness, [[https://i.ytimg.com/vi/q4iA4WymXCk/hqdefault.jpg sporting a grin that not only creeps out the other 7D, but is so huge that it takes up the bulk of his face.]]

Added DiffLines:

* On ''Series/TheDickVanDykeShow'', Rob is at work trying to figure out why his wife, Laura, seems so upset (occasionally prone to crying fits). Sally and Buddy suggest that maybe she's jealous of someone. Rob dismisses the idea, saying that when she's jealous, she "smiles". They don't understand what he's talking about until he demonstrates by squinting his eyes and showing a lot of teeth.

This trope is always played for laughs. And no, no amount of {{Genre Savv|y}}iness will protect you from it. Not to be confused with StepfordSmiler, though they can overlap. May be the result of FingerForcedSmile. Compare SlasherSmile, for when the smile goes from merely creepy to horrific. See also TechnicallyASmile. Contrast WhenSheSmiles, where a smile is especially nice for a character.

* ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' has Dr. Phlox, who most of the time smiles normally...unless he's ''really'' pleased, or trying too hard to be friendly. Then he moves well past UncannyValley and straight into NightmareFuel. Think [[Music/{{Soundgarden}} ''Black Hole Sun'']].

** She's absolutely right when a nice, big smile makes people more civilized. They do ''not'' want things to be ''un''civilized.
