** Also, Trixie (see the image above) in "Just the Two of Us".
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' ends with a shot of Fry doing this after being forced to destroy his robot Lucy-Liu girlfriend, and then watch Bender start making out with the real Ms. Liu. Or at least her head. It's complicated.
* The lunch lady in the ''WesternAnimation/FanboyAndChumChum'' episode ''Little Glop of Horrors'' does this when Fanboy insults her glop.
** Not to mention Lenny, who even has an anti-stress twitch cream.
* MickeyMouse does this in the short "WesternAnimation/FireEscape" when he sees the giant rabbit baby.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' uses this a lot. Mostly with Billy's mom and her BrokenSmile.



* On ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'', Heloise does this after [[CallASmeerpARabbit Cerbee]] and [[TheSlacker Beezy]] ruin her private picnic with Jimmy. She then is paralyzed with rage, breathing deeply and heavily in one spot for hours.

** When he appears in VideoGame/PokerNight2, this is one of his "tells" to indicate he has a bad hand.
* Tweek of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', in addition to his overall jitteriness, has a perpetually twitchy eye.
* In a ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Simpsons]]'' parody of ''Theatre/{{Amadeus}}'', Lisa, as Salieri, does this when the emperor declares all music other than [[AnachronismStew Beethoven]] obsolete, making her schemes against Mozart all for nothing. She then hails a coach for the nearest asylum and rides off, [[LaughingMad cackling hysterically]].
** If you pay careful attention, you can see Ned Flanders twitch an eye during "Hurricane Ned" after the rebuilt house falls down, just before he puts his glasses back on and [[FreakOut completely loses his shit]].
** Yet another Simpsons example involves Moe the Bartender. When he attempts to remake his bar into a family restaurant and himself into a more family-friendly image, the customers--as per usual for [[DysfunctionJunction Springfield]]--quickly annoy him to the breaking point. What sets him off on a [[GoshDangItToHeck G-Rated]] ClusterFBomb barrage is a child complaining, during Moe's twitch of anger, that her soda was too cold.

Justified, given that his day has gone quite south, he's had his psychic leash yanked for much of the movie, and he later has a reputation for being, well, just plain nuts.
