** In "Cell Block Rock", Ami and Yumi try to avoid a crowd using fake beards, which they glue to their faces by mistake. Their manager Kaz mistakes them for tresspassers and gets them arrested.
** "House Unkeeping" begins with Ami and Yumi sneaking past their fans solely by wearing T-shirts claiming they are not Ami and Yumi.

* A obscure cartoon called ''Rainbow Fish'' might contain one of the most stupidest examples. In one episode Rainbow and his friends attempt to stop a construction worker named Phineas T. Gronch from destroying their town to build a mall. They get the idea to scare him away by pretending to be ghosts. So you think they would wear [[BedsheetGhost white sheets or blankets]] over themselves right? Wrong! All they did was put white makeup on their faces and it completely fools Phineas and keep in mind that the heroes spoke with him previously and he didn't recognize them.

* The Big Bad Wolf in Disney's ''Disney/ThreeLittlePigs'' cartoons is fond of this trope. He often even doesn't mind [[DisguisedInDrag going into drag]] to catch the pigs. Generally, the first two pigs are often fooled by his disguises, but strangely in the original short, they AREN'T fooled by the Wolf's attempt at a lamb disguise (crouched in a basket, draped in an old sheepskin and holding an old-fashioned baby bottle.)

** The two-part
episode "The Reeking Reign of the Head Cheese" had Throttle, Modo, and Vinnie framed for kidnapping the mayor of Chicago by Greasepit and two nameless thugs, who impersonated the Biker Mice using very obvious disguises. Greasepit, for instance, disguised himself as Modo solely by wearing fake mouse ears and doesn't even bother wearing an eyepatch.

** In the episode “Frankie My Deer,” Mac, Bloo, an Imaginary Prince Charming, and a pizza delivery nerd attempt to use a fake disguise as a tall man to spy on Frankie on her date. Due to Bloo being the “head,” (and claiming his name is [[Creator/OrlandoBloom Orlando]] [[SueDonym Bloo]])it was very obvious that Frankie wasn’t going to buy the disguise.

* WesternAnimation/TheHairBearBunch disguise themselves as tree surgeons taking a tree to the hospital (episode "Ark Lark") as a ruse to escape the zoo. Zookeeper Mr. Peevly is absolutely oblivious that there are ''three'' individuals in scrubs who sound like Hair, Square and Bubi (who manages to control his StarfishLanguage speech to describe the tree's ailment). What gives them away is when they move the tree out on a gurney and a branch rips off Hair's scrubs.

* ''WesternAnimation/LesSisters'': [[AlphaBitch Rachel]] is throwing a party and Marine and Wendy need to get in because [[spoiler: the party is being held inside ''their'' house, and Rachel has locked them out]]. Unfortunately, Rachel has employed a bouncer to keep them out. So they wear a pair of princess dresses, and Marine changes her hairstyle. They return to the door and introduce themselves to the bouncer as "Princess Wendynoodle" and "Princess Marina". Despite the obviously fake names, and the fact that all they did was change clothes, the bouncer can't tell that "Wendynoodle and Marina" are really Wendy and Marine.

* The season one finale of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' sees Stan, Soos, Dipper, and Mabel sneaking into the announcement press conference of Gideonland. Soos' disguise is probably the thinnest of the lot; among other things, his beard is blatantly taped on, his trenchcoat is too small to hide his iconic question-mark tee that he's still wearing underneath, and he's written the words [[BlatantLies 'NOT SOOS']] on a piece of paper taped to his usual baseball cap. The others have marginally better disguises, though.
-->If anyone asks, I'm ''not Soos.''

** ''Super Show'' also had the heroes do this on occasion. In "The Unzappables," the quartet needs to sneak into Bowser's secret villains-only club, so they don suits with red and green accents (the Mario Bros.), a pink flapper dress and headband (Princess Toadstool), and a newsboy outfit (Toad), none of which do ''anything'' to disguise their distinct facial features; as mentioned above, they also match the characters' distinct color schemes. The outfits work perfectly.
** Suits worked again in another episode, where Mario and Luigi went undercover as riverboat gamblers. Oddly, in the same episode, Toad's disguise as a French waiter doesn't work.

** In season 3, "The Painted Lady" this trope is both subverted and averted. Katara dresses as a Spirit to help a town who's river was polluted by the Fire Nation's factories. It's actually quite a brilliant disguise, and with the help of her waterbending, she's very convincing (at least until Aang catches her sneaking off). On the more comedic side, we have [[CloudCuckooLander a man who seems to be completely insane.]] He switches hats and names, telling the gang he's a trio of brothers.
