* The special assignments on ''WesternAnimation/SpecialAgentOso'' that Oso helps children with range from mundane chores such as washing breakfast dishes to stuff like teaching a kid to use chopsticks. Despite this, each is treated with full urgency complete with traveling there on a bullet train or high-speed helicopter, to the use of Franchise/JamesBond style gadgets.
-->'''Mr. Dos''': It's a serious matter... Your special assignment: help Katie build a sandcastle.

** TheJoker ''lives'' this trope. Anything ''anyone'' does to him, no matter how minor or unintentional, is a grave offense against him personally. He's the funniest living organism in Gotham, dammit, and you'd better respect the hell out of him and give him whatever he wants, or ''he will hurt you''. Yell at him on the freeway? He'll stalk you for ''years''. Refuse to grant him (illegal) patenting rights? He'll threaten to kill you and then carry out his threats in the most unexpected ways possible (even poisoning someone's ''cat'' and goading it into clawing his face). Tell him he's too late in entering a comedy competition? He'll kidnap the three judges and warp their minds with microchips, turning all of them into criminals and ultimately causing one of them to be sent to the hospital with near-fatal injuries.

* The cast of ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' take the children's games they play OnceAnEpisode very, very seriously.

* The cast of ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' take the children's games they play OnceAnEpisode very, very seriously. Kaeloo once lampshades this with a quote:
-->'''Kaeloo''' (to [[CloudCuckooLander Stumpy]]): Be serious, we're playing here!

** Also ice cream, in which the search for the true nature of the "fourth flavor" (vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate being the core three) is akin to that of a religious quest.

** Also ice cream, in which the search for the true nature of the "fourth flavor" (vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate being the core three) is akin to that of a religious quest. Ice cream was so serious business to one character that he became an ''OmnicidalManiac'' over everyone eating his ice cream and not thanking him for it.

* On paper the games in ''ReBoot'' sound like it is serious business, but it is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] because these games are a life-or-death matter for the people ''inside'' the computer.

** This also applies to Halloween, at least in Halloweentown. Since the city is a PlanetOfHats with scaring people as its hat, the town council spends literally the entire year preparing for each Halloween, drawing up plans as early as November 1st. The Mayor actually has a minor panic attack when Jack is not at home to go over the plans with him. No wonder Jack has gotten sick of Halloween.

** In "Does This Duckbill Make Me Looke Fat?", Perry ([[ItMakesSenseInContext in Candace's body]], but that's another story) stops Doofenshmirtz from stealing every fast food restaurant clown figure in Danville. Even though we ''are'' talking about a massive theft of property here, it still seems rather silly that both Major Monogram and the local police give this matter top priority.

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'': In "Curly Snaps", Curly is obsessed over being the "ball monitor" (the kid whose job is to hand out and collect all the kickballs before and after recces) for a week. Every other kid hates the job and considers it a mediocre and boring chore while Curly believes it to be an admirable and highly respected position. He ends up going crazy and locking himself in the principal's office with all the balls and chucks them at people after Mr. Simmons accidentally skips his turn. Sid, who was given the job instead, flat out tells Curly he doesn't want the job and he can have it.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheDreamstone'', naturally revolves around a feud between dreams. The BigBad Zordrak, is vehement on sending nightmares to the heroes in the Land Of Dreams, who will protect their good dreams to any extreme (their creator, the Dream Maker, is [[LargeHam particularly hammy]] about this). Zordrak's Mooks, the Urpneys, are the only ones who barely give a toss about dreams, but are dragged into missions to ruin them regardless (usually via stealing the title stone), facing violent, or even ''deadly'' retaliations from the heroes or their BadBoss (or often both) depending on how they fare. The later episodes added a more genuinely serious world domination scheme, likely to downplay the DisproportionateRetribution on the heroes' part.
