* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'', anyone? Chances are, for example, if Bugs Bunny is in it, the toon's title will often make a pun with the word "hare", "rabbit" or "bunny". Famous titles include ''Hare Trigger'', ''WesternAnimation/RabbitFire'', ''WesternAnimation/OneFroggyEvening'', ''WesternAnimation/WhatsOperaDoc'', or ''WesternAnimation/AliBabaBunny''.

** Most other studios in UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation employed these at least occasionally, as well.



* Especially in later seasons, most of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode titles are puns such as "Mobile Homer", "Moaning Lisa", or "The Bart of War."
** The ''Mona Lisa'', in fact, is one of the most frequent target of parodied episode titles; there have been at least three episodes whose titles use that pun, while the others are a more diverse - the only other recurring theme is "<member of the Simpson family> vs. <plot point>".

* ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' were well-known for their punny titles. For example, FGB had "Mummy Dearest" (''Literature/MommieDearest''); RGB had "A Fright at the Opera" (punning on a Creator/MarxBrothers movie and a Music/{{Queen}} album). However, they ''shared'' a pun by having one episode each called "Rollerghoster!".

* Aside from the obvious PunnyName of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', there's also the episodes "Tourist Trapped", "Headhunters", "The Hand That Rocks The Mabel", "Double Dipper", "Irrational Treasure", "Little Dipper", "Carpet Diem", and "The Land Before Swine". And that's just the first season...
** When [[MetaGuy Soos]] tells a story in "Bottomless Pit!", he averts and lampshades this trope with his story: [[LongTitle "Soos' Really Great Pinball Story: Is That A Good Title? Do They Have to Be Like Puns or Whatever?"]]

** Same for [[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadRunner Road Runner]] shorts, which usually have titles that're puns involving either the Road Runner's superspeed (or uttering of "Beep! Beep!") or Wile E. Coyote's tendency to get maimed (''Fast and Furry-ous'', ''Zoom At the Top'', ''Wild About Hurry'', ''To Beep or Not To Beep'', ''Gee Whiz-z-z-z-z-z-z'', ''Boulder Wham!'', ''Scrambled Aches'').
** ''WesternAnimation/TheDucktators'' is another good example.
