** The InvoluntaryTransformation undergone by Edmund is diminished somewhat when he screams, in that annoying little kid voice, what sounds like [[DoubleEntendre "Jeepers, I'm a furry!"]] He's saying "Jeepers, I'm all furry"; but his speech impediment all but wipes out the 'l' sound, turning this into one of the narmiest moments in the movie for those who know what UsefulNotes/{{furr|yFandom}}ies are.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheBatmanVsDracula'', Bruce Wayne deduces Alucard's true identity by writing his name on a tray with lipstick and holding it up to a mirror. Alfred gasps. Cue the [[ScareChord scary music.]] This was supposed to be dramatic and following the "show, don't tell" rule of storytelling; it ended up looking [[CaptainObvious childish and silly]] because the viewer ''already knows this''. And surely a full grown adult can [[SdrawkcabName reverse spell]] Alucard in his mind.

* One VerySpecialEpisode of ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'' is quite narmy. Richie was shot in the leg and cried, "It hurts, it hurts! It's not like on TV shows, it really ''hurts''!"
** It's sad because the rest of the episode was powerful. Except for the part at the end where [[AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle Static and Rubberband Man address the viewing audience.]]

** That the ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld'' cartoon episode "Mama Luigi" is such a staple of WebAnimation/YoutubePoop is in part due to Luigi's bizarre, wheeze-ridden voicing of lines like "Or is it the bagel?" and "Good thing I found a magic balloon!"

** In the episode "Blind as a Bat", Bruce gets temporarily blinded by an explosion. Pretty harsh; unfortunately, this is revealed in one of the most silly, needlessly dramatic way possible - Alfred asks why doesn't his master want to go to a regular hospital, which our hero answers with "Because... I don't want anyone to find out... that I can't... SEE!!". The random use of dramatic silence by itself was quite funny, but the scene also goes alongside some pretty tragic BGM, and the animation team [[http://img818.imageshack.us/img818/7633/btasnarm.jpg didn't help it]].
*** In the same episode, the Penguin hijacks a helicopter by having his {{Mook}}s replace the crew. Two men find the real pilots BoundAndGagged behind some oil drums, and feel the need to [[ShowDontTell spell it out to the audience]].

** Any time Poison Ivy starts making hammy eco-terrorist speeches. Yes, the woman's insane, but come on now! Bruce Timm and company seem to have realized the narminess too; in "The New Batman Adventures" and comics set in its continuity, the speeches have all but vanished.
*** The problem honestly lay in the delivery--Diane Pershing's insane anger sounded very forced. Ivy's insane ranting worked much better when the character was eerily calm.

** Whenua's infamous "'Cause that's what friends do" line from the third movie. It's supposed to sound comforting and inspirational, but given that it's a huge OutOfCharacterMoment for Whenua, that he says it in response to the line "We'll find a way [to reverse our horrible mutations, fight off an army of GiantSpiders and rescue the imprisoned population of the city] together", his gruff voice in general, not to mention that the movie tried to be ''dark'', it comes off as plainly corny and out-of-place.

** In the French dub of [[Franchise/TransformersGeneration1 Transformers G1]], it's hard to take Optimus Prime seriously because his voice is dubbed by the very same guy who does [[TheSmurfs Brainy Smurf's voice]]. He has the very same annoying, obnoxious voice. And then, there's Bumblebee, also dubbed by the same voice actor, who has the same voice of Clumsy Smurf, stammering on every line like he did on TheSmurfs. Really.

* ''WesternAnimation/GalactikFootball'' had plenty, mostly due to some seriously LimitedAnimation (especially in the third season) and a pretty dodgy dub. There's a particularly hilarious scene in one of the last episodes when [[spoiler:Sinedd's long-lost parents finally find out their son is alive and his mother gets an expression that can only be described as a startled fish pout.]] Which completely ruins what should have been a very dramatic and moving scene.

* The "Doug's Brainy Buddy" episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'' has him being jealous of his best friend, Skeeter, whom after taking an IQ test, ends up being a [[GeniusDitz genius.]] After the two of them get into an argument in which he throws a book at him and walks away, he then yells at Skeeter "Just take your super brain and go to college! See if I care!" This is supposed to be in the heat of the moment and showing him upset, yet the animation of his body language makes it this trope, since his silly hand waving looks like a combination of Doug cupping the air and the famous "bring it" hand taunt by Main/StoneColdSteveAustin.

** The FateWorseThanDeath of [[spoiler:Aiwei, the backstabbing truth seer in season 3, where he gets tossed into the Fog of Lost Souls by Zaheer after leading Korra right to him in the Spirit Realm]], is unintentionally hilarious due to how he pretty much looks like Wiley Coyote falling off a cliff after chasing the Road Runner.

* The escape of the Memory Dump in "WesternAnimation/InsideOut" [[spoiler:when Bing Bong dies]], the singing just makes it impossible for the scene to be taken seriously.
** Also, Bing Bong's name. When [[spoiler:Joy mourns BB's death]], people just laugh out loud, although most fans of ''Tiny Planets'' will probably consider it NarmCharm.

** In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanMaskOfThePhantasm'', there's a flashback to Bruce proposing to a girlfriend. She happily agrees to marry him, even though her father was planning to move them to Europe. But a few days later, Bruce gets the ring back in the mail, along with a note reading "Left with Dad. Too young. Need time. Forget about me." This could have been a sad scene, except he reads it aloud in the most retarded-sounding tones imaginable.

* The ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Proper Condom Use" has a scene where Stan first learns about masturbation, and thinking it's a cool trick, decides to try it on his pet, Sparky. His parents turn around and see him doing it, and naturally yell out in shock. When they do this, it's accompanied by a musical sting that would normally accompany, say, the discovery of a corpse. But in this case, it's the discovery of a boy jerking off a dog. Of course this is Creator/TreyParkerAndMattStone we're talking about, so it's hard to tell what humor is intentional and what isn't.
