Wick cleanup, Edit War moved to Administrivia
'''Note:''' Keep in mind that this trope is cultural, and is subject to the aforementioned ValuesDissonance; what may seem normal or only marginally strange to one culture may come off as mind-blowingly weird to another, and vice versa. If an example here strikes you as not as unusual as the entry makes it out to be, you may want to take it to the discussion page instead of instigating an EditWar.

** ''WesternAnimation/TwelveOunceMouse''. Some describe it as TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: The Cartoon. No surprise given its StylisticSuck mixed with bizarre pseudo-drama.

** ''WesternAnimation/CoconutFredsFruitSaladIsland''. Take ''Spongebob Squarepants'' and ''Veggie Tales'', throw them in a blender, add a whole load of plots so nonsensical and random that you head will be spinning by the time the episode's over, and make them into a cartoon. Voila, one of the weirdest cartoons ever made.

* ''Many'' 90's cartoons, particularly ones that came from ''WhatACartoonShow'', such as ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'' and its SpinOff ''WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel''. ** ''TheTwistedTalesOfFelixTheCat'' is a particularly bizarre example.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' is this in terms of animation (a mix of stop-motion, compuet-generated effects and traditional animation), characters (the protagonist is a blue cat with an orange fish as his brother, and his parents are a pink bunny married with another blue cat; his schoolmates include a TyrannosaurusRex, a paper-made gal, a female cactus and a cloud) and events (very silly incidents that are taken too seriously). %% * ''{{Robotomy}}''.

A kid's show is about robots going to school is one thing, but one where something (or someone) is destroyed every other scene, the cast is almost entirely mentally unstable, and the ENTIRE planet is a war zone? Yup, pure WHAT.

* ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes''.

Episode premises have included a principal and a hippo being turned into rappers, , Billy turning the world into a [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 40s-]]era cartoon by juggling chickens, an invisible fart-imitating duck annoying everyone, and a parody of Creator/HannaBarbera cartoon characters trying to conquer the world by stealing beds. * ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder''. Take the animation of WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes, the wackiness of WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants, the character designs of ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'', and a space setting. Now, put them in a blender, and voila! A weird, wacky little cartoon. * ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken''. A couple, who both happen to be a pair of legs, have two children: the titular animals. The duo are harassed in every episode by an insane, crosdressing demon and the former of the two can turn into a Spanish-speaking superhero. [[FlatWhat Wait, what?]] * ''WesternAnimation/YakkityYak'', an obscure and short-lived GagSeries by Creator/{{Teletoon}} that also aired on Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} from 2003 to 2003. It's about the adventures of a yak who lives in the town of Onion Falls and dreams about being a comedian. By itself that's weird enough, but to add to it, his best friend is a pineapple-headed person, his agent is a trilobite, and a mad scientist with hair that changes colour based on his mood and a CuteRobot assistant lives in his basement. Yup, a Wicket in the purest sense of the term.

%% ** ''PerfectHairForever''''PerfectHairForever'', a parody of anime in general and shonen anime in particular. The hero's mentor and the main villain look identical aside from one being nearly bald and the other having [[KaleidoscopeEyes kaleidoscopic]] AnimeHair, and minions include Catman (who is just a guy in a cat costume) and Terry/Twisty, a walking, talking tree with a SplitPersonality (who later seems to do a HeelFaceTurn but that's around the point where the show stopped following the plot and started just being a RandomEventsPlot).

Follow-up series ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'', while less {{Animesque}}, just outright drops the seriousness and embraces WHAT territory.

* ''ComicBook/SavageDragon'' is too violent and sexual to be a typical superhero book but way too fun to be a serious adult comic. Some of the villains this series has seen include a man who fires human waste with enough force to decapitate, a deadly FlyingBrick with a chicken head, and a cute 3-foot tall warlord that takes over entire galaxies (and was friends with the hero's adopted daughter for a time). Then we have strange twists on {{exp|y}}ies of DoctorDoom or [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]]. Then we have the other end of the spectrum with characters like Darklord and the Fiend who are very disturbing and deadly.
