* In one ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' episode, Minx and Techrat meet. Techrat HatesBeingTouched however he doesn't mind Minx touching him. WordOfGod is that the two would have ended up together if the series hadn't been CutShort.

** The episode "[[Recap/GravityFallsS2E10NorthwestMansionMystery Northwest Mansion Mystery]]" was full of Dipper/Pacifica (known as Dipcifica/Padippica by the fandom) teases. Let's see, there's Pacifica [[AccidentalHug hugging]] Dipper then getting embarrassed and trying to bribe him to forget about it, Dipper walking into a column due to trying to act suave in front of her, and of course the tender moment the two share when Dipper tells Pacifica YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre. Not to mention that in the video game "[[VideoGame/GravityFallsLegendOfTheGnomeGemulets Legend of the Gnome Gemulets]]", when Mabel mentions it, they seem to inconspicuously [[ShesNotMyGirlfriend deny it ever happened]], although Mabel [[ShipperOnDeck seems to think otherwise]]. If THAT weren't enough the [[{{Defictionalization}} published journal]] shows that Dipper admitted he thought she was becoming a decent person, thought she looked nice in a dress, and thought she smelled like champagne and flowers. The last sentence, crossed out, is him wondering if there was some vibe going on between them. ''Don't Color This Book, It's Cursed!'' throws a little more fuel on the fire by including Dipper and Pacifica as a couple on a two-page spread of "Mabel's Future Match-Making Projects".

* Lots of this in ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012''. Donnie has a crush on April, which was mostly played for comic relief in the first couple of season, though the teasing became more serious after [[https://youtu.be/aRWc1GScT9E?t=32s this scene]]. The writers do include some ship tease for Casey and April, too. On top of that, Leonardo has a variance of DatingCatwoman with Karai. They seek each other out for fun, they both care about the other's well being despite technically being enemies, and their battles absolutely reek of sexual tension.

* ''WesternAnimation/ElTigre'': This is all supported by WordOfGod confirming that Manny and Frida would become a couple when they got older.
** "Oso Solo Mio" ends with Manny and Frida watching El Oso run off into the moonset (yes, it ''is'' a word. Look it up.) with the thing he loves most -- money. Frida comments on how beautiful love is before sliding herself towards Manny. Manny simply looks at her confused before a heart-shaped IrisOut appears around the pair. Awww.
** The final scene in the final episode sees Frida suddenly ''kiss'' a surprised Manny in her arms after the Riveras defeat every villain in Miracle City.

* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'':
** From day one there's all manner of Ship Tease going on between Kim and Ron. Certain exchanges ("If she saw us coming out of a date movie together, she might, you know..." "[[FlatWhat You. And me.]] On a date?" "Not that we, y'know, would or anything...") and certain scenes (the parody of the famous [[Film/SpiderMan1 upside-down kiss]]) littered various episodes, and "Emotion Sickness" was one big tease from start to finish, while simultaneously teasing Drakken and Shego. The ''first episode'' has Ron declare [[ShesNotMyGirlfriend "And contrary to popular belief, I am not dating Kim Possible"]] in what could be the quickest series-start-to-ship-tease since [[Series/TheXFiles Mulder and Scully]]. All of which inevitably lead to their RelationshipUpgrade at the end of season three.
** "Homecoming Upset" had its fair share of Ron/Bonnie teases.
** Kim and Shego were always a FanPreferredCouple, but [[PostScriptSeason season 4]] dropped numerous {{Fandom Nod}}s to this, like Shego calling Kim "my Kimmie" while declaring [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou she's the only one who can defeat her]], and the episode "Stop Team Go" channels every [[FandomSpecificPlot "Shego turns good and hooks up with Kim"]] fanfic in existence (they don't actually hook up, but they do get very close very quickly). In the end Kim still stays with Ron and Shego and ''Drakken'' of all people pair up, but it was nice while it lasted.

* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'':
''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'':
** From day The two-parter "Mortal Folly"/"Mortal Recoil" is filled with [[PrecociousCrush Finn/Bubblegum]] teasing. Even beyond Finn defeating [[VileVillainSaccharineShow The Lich]] with the [[ThePowerOfLove The Power of L-l-liking Someone a Lot]] thanks to the sweater Bubblegum gave him, and Finn's subsequent ineffective attempt at admitting this to Bubblegum, the two-parter ends with Bubblegum [[PuppyLove turned thirteen years old]] and giving Finn a congratulatory hug. "Too Young" continued this teasing with a vengeance, only to swerve into a ShipSinking ending.
** Intentionally [[RelationshipWritingFumble or not]], "What Was Missing" is seen as
one colossal tease for Bubblegum/Marceline, the pinnacle of which was either A) a song that hinted at some incredible emotional pain in their past relationship with all the subtlety of a mountain, or B) that Bubblegum's stolen treasure was a shirt Marceline gave her (directly paralleling Finn's stolen treasure; a wad of Bubblegum's hair). [[http://www.scribd.com/doc/77248876/What-Was-Missing-Storyboard The publically released storyboard]] reveals that originally there were even ''more'' hints planned.
*** "Sky Witch", holy crap. The episode literally opens with Bubblegum ''sensually sniffing'' the shirt Marceline gave her, and the end reveals that said shirt has more emotional significance attached to it than ''Hambo'' (Marceline's stuffed animal, the only thing she has to remember her ParentalSubstitute after [[spoiler:he became the Ice King]]).
*** "Varmints" was filled to the brim with Marceline/Bubblegum ship tease, complete with lots of blushing and ending with just the sweetest SleepCute moment between the two.
** "Go With Me" is odd in that it seems to be both teasing and [[ShipSinking sinking]] Finn/Marceline at once--the whole episode makes a point of showing how they get along better than either does with Bubblegum, but Marceline [[TheNotLoveInterest pointedly turns Finn down]] when he seems to be asking her on a date. When it turns out to be NotADate she goes, and they bond over their hatred of romance in the most romantically platonic way possible.
** "Hot to the Touch" is dedicated to nothing other than teasing Finn and the Flame Princess.
*** And "Burning Low" caused a veritable explosion in the Finn/FP shippers, what with [[spoiler: Jake calling Bubblegum out as being jealous that Finn likes FP, and the [[TheBigDamnKiss huge kiss]] and heroic rescue at the end.]]
** "Gotcha!" teases Lumpy Space Princess/Finn, oddly enough, with the episode revolving around LSP trying to charm Finn and Jake only to fall for Finn's kindness and sincerity ("His hot lumps are on the ''inside''!"). Near the end, LSP even admits that she thinks Finn is "hot".
** Ever since "You Made Me" aired, fans have shipped Lemongrab with his clone. In what can only be described as something straddling the line between a ShipTease and full-blown WordOfGay, Adventure Time writer [[WordOfGod Thomas Herpich]] once drew a picture of the Lemongrabs smiling and hugging each other... while [[http://sphotos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/311281_299606876817451_1503856371_n.jpg butt naked]]. And in "All Your Fault," the Lemongrabs actually ''have children together''.
** "Too Old" refloats the Finn/Bubblegum ship to tease it briefly, only for Bubblegum to harshly shut down Finn towards the end of the episode, followed by Finn seemingly learning for the final time that the age difference between the two make them incompatible.
** "The Pajama War" seems to have brought back the Finn/Bubblegum ship. The episode revolves around the two going on a kind-of-date, spending quality time together after the Candy people shove them in the closet to have "heavenly thoughts." The two have a few heart-to-hearts, play around with a giant cat and take selfies, all culminating in the two watching a sunset (on a screen) and admitting that they enjoy hanging out together, complete with them gazing at each other with sparkling eyes. The episode ends with Finn looking fondly at the pictures of him and PB having fun and being touchy-feely on his phone. All this happens after PB admits out loud that she wants to spend time with Finn, and she doesn't even leave when her people need her, instead [[CharacterDevelopment continuing to do something for her own wants;]] chilling with Finn.
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers'' had quite a bit of this between Shane and Niko, especially if Chris Rowley was writing. "Scarecrow" is positively loaded. There's one scene where Shane was dancing with a local girl. Niko asks him later about his "girlfriend," and he remarks "She already has a date...and so do I." Then,
there's all manner of Ship Tease going on between Kim the scene where Scarecrow busts into an injured Niko's room and Ron. Certain exchanges ("If attacks her. Shane breaks in and brawls Scarecrow, but is knocked against a wall. Before the Scarecrow can kill him, Niko grabs her {{BFG}} and shoots, scaring the thing off. As she saw us coming out of a date movie together, swoons from the injuries she might, you know...already has, Shane catches her, and says softly. "Easy, babe, sleep now." "[[FlatWhat You. And me.]] On a date?" "Not It was rather amusing when Rowley discovered the FanFic fifteen years later...
* Throughout ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien'' there are hints
that we, y'know, would or anything...") King Julien and certain scenes (the parody of his bodyguard Clover could be an item. She gets extremely upset when Julien starts dating her twin sister Crimson, but adamantly denies it's because she's jealous. Most subtly, both characters [[HatesBeingTouched don't like it when characters randomly touch them]], but are generally fine if it's each other doing the famous [[Film/SpiderMan1 upside-down kiss]]) littered various touching.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' has unimaginable amounts of [[EveryoneHasLotsOfSex everyone on everyone]] but in the season 4
episodes, the most prominent is Archer and "Emotion Sickness" was one big tease from start Lana, who have plunged into the WillTheyOrWontThey category. They used to finish, date but since Archer's an unrepentant asshole, Lana has no desire to be in a relationship with him. However, they've slept together at least once since the break up and Archer shows signs of actually caring about her while simultaneously teasing Drakken she flip-flops between hating his guts and Shego. The ''first episode'' realizing he isn't a total JerkAss. This is taken further in ''Archer: Vice''. Along with comforting her several times whenever things got too dire, Archer has Ron declare [[ShesNotMyGirlfriend "And contrary tried his damndest to popular belief, I am not dating Kim Possible"]] in what could be the quickest series-start-to-ship-tease since [[Series/TheXFiles Mulder [[spoiler:father figure he feels Lana's unborn child is going to need.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' teased Arthur/Francine a few times with a SheIsNotMyGirlfriend episode at one point
and Scully]]. All a few glimpses into the future (which may or may not be {{Imagine Spot}}s) that imply both will eventually get married.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans'': Plenty
of which inevitably lead to their RelationshipUpgrade at ship tease, but what crossed the final line was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pixB4kf_9I the song "I Need a Hand"]] during "Caveman's Best Friend". It's the end of season three.
** "Homecoming Upset" had its fair share of Ron/Bonnie teases.
** Kim and Shego were always a FanPreferredCouple, but [[PostScriptSeason season 4]] dropped numerous {{Fandom Nod}}s to this, like Shego calling Kim "my Kimmie" while declaring [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou she's

In the end Kim still stays with Ron and Shego and ''Drakken'' of all people pair up, but song, folks. When they're holding hands. Doesn't that scream "LOVE" to you?! I guess it was nice while it lasted.does.



* ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'':
** Depending on the episode, Gadget was either interested in Chip, interested in Dale, interested in someone else (usually a oneshot character like Sparky), not interested in anyone, or unaware of the concept of romance.
** One-shot teases like Dale and Foxglove, which carried over into the brief comic revival by Boom!. To a lesser degree there's Tammy and Chip, although this was rather [[StalkerWithACrush one-sided]] on Tammy's part.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}'': There are a few such moments between Shnitzel and Ms. Endive, even though Endive has a DoesNotLikeMen attitude and Shnitzel is TheUnintelligible of the group. [[spoiler: They are ultimately HappilyMarried in the GrandFinale.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'':
** Used on several occasions with Odd and Sissi, who share an almost SlapSlapKiss dynamic.
** Odd gets a lot of ShipTease with [[BarrierWarrior Aelita]], calling her "Princess" and mentioning how pretty she is on more than one occasion. Aelita also seems to worry about him more often, usuually running to help him every time he gets hurt in Lyoko, and prefers riding on the Overboard with him. [[spoiler:And then there's their kiss in season 4]]. According to WordOfGod, though, [[ShipSinking nothing comes of it]].



* In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' Bruce Timm admitted to doing this with Franchise/{{Batman}} and Franchise/WonderWoman after shippers misinterpreted a gesture of thanks as flirting in "The Brave and the Bold". Anybody who's familiar with the Franchise/{{DCAU}} (specifically ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'') knows that Batman is going to end up bitter and alone...
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' had [[OfficialCouple Robin and Starfire]] ShipTease in spades...and that's not even getting into the PsychicLink between Robin and Raven. Or the constant [[SlapSlapKiss conflict]] between Raven and Beast Boy. Or Terra/Beast Boy. Beast Boy and Raven are teased in the ''ComicBook/TeenTitansGo'' comics, [[RecursiveAdaptation based off the animated series]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' continually teases the Beast Boy and Raven pairing even further than its original cartoon, featuring many shorts dedicated to them.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans'': Plenty of ship tease, but what crossed the final line was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pixB4kf_9I the song "I Need a Hand"]] during "Caveman's Best Friend".

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'': The promos for the [[MilestoneCelebration 10th anniversary special]] "Truth Or Square" all focused on a scene where Spongebob and Sandy get married. In the actual episode it turns out [[spoiler:it's all part of a play. Fan reaction has not been too hostile (albeit it was disappointing for some), which is good because it would look really foolish considering it wasn't a ShipSinking.]]
* While ''WesternAnimation/{{Fillmore}}'' was mostly a NoHuggingNoKissing series, the writers definitely gave a ToyShip vibe between the two leading characters. Mostly because their dialogue had a tendency to sound flirtatious at times, coupled with all the subtext of a BuddyCopShow.

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'':
** Phineas/Isabella gets teased a lot. Isabella spends the whole episode "Out to Launch" trying to ask Phineas to a dance... only to have him misunderstand her and invite Ferb along as a third wheel. In "That Sinking Feeling" Phineas and Ferb attempt to help Baljeet impress a girl, and Phineas later invites Isabella along, [[NotWhatItLooksLike but not in the way you'd think]]. In "One Good Scare Ought to Do It", Phineas not only spends the whole episode trying to help her, but holds her hand practically through the entire song. Many smaller examples also exist.
*** Isabella spends the whole of "The Chronicles of Meap" trying to get registered by Phineas's "Cute Tracker", to no effect. Then Phineas explains he already took her cuteness into account and set the device to ignore her from the start. When he resets it to stop ignoring her, it immediately shorts out.
*** In TheMovie, Phineas seems rather pleased when [[spoiler:Isabella kisses him]], and makes like he's going to do/say something else, but never gets the chance.
** The episode "Vanessessary Roughness" does this for [[PrecociousCrush Ferb/Vanessa]], especially given the cheek-kiss at the end.
** The hour-long special "Summer Belongs To You" teased two of the three most prominent pairings in the show: Phineas/Isabella and Ferb/Vanessa ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and]] [[HoYay Buford/Baljeet]], [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar of]] [[SpaghettiKiss all]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny things]]). It didn't tease Candace/Jeremy however, [[spoiler:considering they became an OfficialCouple at the end of the special.]]
** "Phineas and Ferb's Quantumn Boogaloo" almost confirms the ship, while at the same time opening a new can of worms. While 20 years in the future Isabella is ecstatic to hear Candace's kids comment she looks like their Aunt Isabella, proving she must marry Phineas. Then past!Candace points out she could also marry Ferb and still be their aunt, prompting a look of shock from Isabella - and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny a point and a wink]] from the [[CovertPervert usually-stoic]] Ferb.
** For some reason, despite the [[InterspeciesRomance species difference]], the show loves teasing Doofenshmirtz and Perry.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' teased Arthur/Francine a few times with a SheIsNotMyGirlfriend episode at one point and a few glimpses into the future (which may or may not be {{Imagine Spot}}s) that imply both will eventually get married.
* Despite their relationship being [[JustFriends explicitly platonic]], ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' threw in some teasing for Brad and Jenny from time to time.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'':
** Phineas/Isabella In "[[Recap/GravityfallsS1E12Summerween Summerween]]", Candy Chiu [[SecurityCling hanging on to Dipper after the Trickster's threat]] was enough to send some shippers into fits of squeeing. There were aleady Candy/Dipper shippers before, but this was the first remotely shippy real interaction they could grasp. In "Roadside Attraction", she canonically gets teased a lot. Isabella spends temporary crush on Dipper, of which Mabel and Grenda are way too eager of helping them get alone time together. However, due to Dipper feeling uncomfortable about her crush, and her losing interest by the whole episode "Out to Launch" trying to ask Phineas to a dance... only to have him misunderstand her and invite Ferb along as a third wheel.

Let's see, there's Pacifica [[AccidentalHug hugging]] Dipper then getting embarrassed and trying to bribe him to forget about it, Dipper walking into a column due to trying to act suave in front of her, and of course the tender moment the two share when Dipper tells Pacifica YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre. Not to mention that in the video game "[[VideoGame/GravityFallsLegendOfTheGnomeGemulets Legend of the Gnome Gemulets]]", when Mabel mentions it, they seem to inconspicuously [[ShesNotMyGirlfriend deny it ever happened]], although Mabel [[ShipperOnDeck seems to think otherwise]]. If THAT weren't enough the [[{{Defictionalization}} published journal]] shows that Dipper admitted he thought she was becoming a decent person, thought she looked nice in a dress, and thought she smelled like champagne and flowers. The last sentence, crossed out, is him wondering if there was some vibe going on between them.
** There is also quite a lot of Ship Tease for a popular ship [[spoiler:that sinks in the second season which is then reinvigorated by the fans near the end,]] Wendip (Wendy and Dipper). Despite Dipper himself realizing that it is hopeless at times, the show has several episodes where the tease appears reciprocated. A couple of notable episodes include "The Inconveniencing" with their first session of really hanging out and "The Deep End," where Dipper and Wendy continually chill and have fun together as lifeguards at the pool. Then there is "Into the Bunker." This episode begins with [[spoiler:teasing but ends with sinking]]. The tease happens in the beginning with Dipper and Wendy watching a movie at her house, and there is a bit of it when [[spoiler:they get trapped in the closet and bump into each other. After that, however, the ship sinks after Wendy kindfully rejects Dipper]]. There is a little more teasing after that, though, when Dipper and Wendy hug in "Weirdmageddon Part 1." [[spoiler:"Weirdmageddon Part 3 is ultimately the biggest revival of the ship with Dipper and Wendy switching hats as they part ways until next summer]].
* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold''
does this for [[PrecociousCrush Ferb/Vanessa]], especially given the cheek-kiss at the end.
** The hour-long special "Summer Belongs To You" teased two
with some of the three most prominent pairings in the show: Phineas/Isabella and Ferb/Vanessa ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and]] [[HoYay Buford/Baljeet]], [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar of]] [[SpaghettiKiss all]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny things]]). It didn't tease Candace/Jeremy however, [[spoiler:considering they became an OfficialCouple at the end of the special.]]
** "Phineas and Ferb's Quantumn Boogaloo" almost confirms the ship, while at the same time opening a new can of worms. While 20 years in the future Isabella is ecstatic to hear Candace's kids comment she looks like their Aunt Isabella, proving she must marry Phineas. Then past!Candace points out she could also marry Ferb and still be their aunt, prompting a look of shock from Isabella - and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny a point and a wink]] from the [[CovertPervert usually-stoic]] Ferb.
** For some reason, despite the [[InterspeciesRomance species difference]], the show loves teasing Doofenshmirtz and Perry.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' teased Arthur/Francine a few times
lesser characters: Harold with a SheIsNotMyGirlfriend both Rhonda and Patty, Sid and Rhonda (in the episode at one point "Wheezin' Ed"), Sheena and a few glimpses into Eugene. Phoebe and Gerald also count earlier on, but they're more or less the future (which may or may not be {{Imagine Spot}}s) that imply both will eventually get married.
* Despite their relationship being [[JustFriends explicitly platonic]], ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' threw in some teasing for Brad and Jenny from time to time.
official BetaCouple by season 4.



* ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' is infamous for possibly the longest ever (still ongoing!!) never-resolved WillTheyOrWontThey between Fred and Daphne (if you're not counting the live action movies). In ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' Fred proposes to Daphne, and while that didn't work out Episode 51 had [[spoiler:Fred come right out and say he loves Daphne followed by a BigDamnKiss]]. However, after [[spoiler:the jump to a different timeline, it's unclear if Fred's intentions were still valid at that point.]]
* Even ''Literature/TheMagicSchoolBus'', which was primarily an EdutainmentShow and aimed at little kids, managed to sneak in some hints between most of the kids. The most consistently teased pairings were the three cases of OppositesAttract: Ralphie/Keesha, Carlos/Dorothy Ann, and Arnold/Wanda. Arnold was a veritable ChickMagnet; he was also teased with Phoebe ("The Busasaurus") and Dorothy Ann ("Cracks a Yolk"), and a girl in another class named Tiffany ("Wet All Over"). One episode teased him with ''both'' Phoebe and Wanda at once ("Goes Cellular").

* According to the [[http://questfan.com/Page/Writer%27s_Bible.html Writer's Bible]] of ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures'', the writers wanted to ShipTease Jonny/Jessie in the first season. When a new head writer took over in season 2, ShipTease was also planned for Hadji/Jessie while continuing the Jonny/Jessie teasing from the previous season, hinting at a possible TwoGuysAndAGirl LoveTriangle. The Jonny/Jessie teasing culminated in the second season episode "Ghost Quest" where Jonny and Jessie [[KissingUnderTheInfluence kiss while possessed by the ghosts of two former lovers]]. With the kiss continuing for several seconds after the ghosts, as it took them that long to realize they were back in control of their bodies.
* In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' Bruce Timm admitted to doing this with Franchise/{{Batman}} and Franchise/WonderWoman after shippers misinterpreted a gesture of thanks as flirting in "The Brave and the Bold". Anybody who's familiar with the Franchise/{{DCAU}} (specifically ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'') knows that Batman is going to end up bitter and alone...



* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'':
** During season 2 (''Total Drama Action'') the writers loved to tease Duncan with girls other than his canon love interest Courtney. Mostly this was with [[FanPreferredCouple Gwen]] but he also ended up kissing Heather (as part of a challenge) and going on a 'date' with Lindsay (to deliberately infuriate Courtney). Then season three, the tease with Gwen [[RelationshipUpgrade became the truth]].
** {{Crack Ship}}pers had a field day when Noah/Bridgette was thrown at them [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight out of NOWHERE]].
** [[TheSmartGuy Noah]]/[[ManicPixieDreamGirl Izzy]] seem to be just friends, but a lot of their interactions come off as cutesy or romantic. They also happen to be a FanPreferredCouple.
** Heather and Alejandro in World Tour. It's actually confirmed.

* ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers'' had quite a bit of this between Shane and Niko, especially if Chris Rowley was writing. "Scarecrow" is positively loaded. There's one scene where Shane was dancing with a local girl. Niko asks him later about his "girlfriend," and he remarks "She already has a date...and so do I." Then, there's the scene where Scarecrow busts into an injured Niko's room and attacks her. Shane breaks in and brawls Scarecrow, but is knocked against a wall. Before the Scarecrow can kill him, Niko grabs her {{BFG}} and shoots, scaring the thing off. As she swoons from the injuries she already has, Shane catches her, and says softly. "Easy, babe, sleep now." It was rather amusing when Rowley discovered the FanFic fifteen years later...
* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' does this with some of the lesser characters: Harold with both Rhonda and Patty, Sid and Rhonda (in the episode "Wheezin' Ed"), Sheena and Eugene. Phoebe and Gerald also count earlier on, but they're more or less the official BetaCouple by season 4.
* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'':
** Used on several occasions with Odd and Sissi, who share an almost SlapSlapKiss dynamic.
** Odd gets a lot of ShipTease with [[BarrierWarrior Aelita]], calling her "Princess" and mentioning how pretty she is on more than one occasion. Aelita also seems to worry about him more often, usuually running to help him every time he gets hurt in Lyoko, and prefers riding on the Overboard with him. [[spoiler:And then there's their kiss in season 4]]. According to WordOfGod, though, [[ShipSinking nothing comes of it]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'':
** "Metal Attraction" deliberately plays with Bulkhead/Arcee, right down to Miko acting jealous (a tease in an of itself depending on you want to look at it).
** The biggest amount of shipping seems to be between Arcee and Jack. If only because the writers seem to like teasing nearly every type of relationship the two of them could possibly have.
** Arcee has been shipteased with almost every other Autobot. Shiptease moments include; Arcee/Cliffjumper in Out of the Past, Arcee/Optimus Prime in Scrapheap, Arcee/Wheeljack in Plus One, and Arcee/Bumblebee in Predacons Rising.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}'': There are a few such moments between Shnitzel and Ms. Endive, even though Endive has a DoesNotLikeMen attitude and Shnitzel is TheUnintelligible of the group. [[spoiler: They are ultimately HappilyMarried in the GrandFinale.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'':
** Edd was teased for Edd/Nazz in "the day the Edd stood still." See the kiss scene which we ALL remember.
** Eddy gets a kiss from Nazz too in [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddysBigPictureShow The Big Picture Show]]. It's adorable.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' has the FoeYay variety of this at times between Him and Bubbles, Mojo Jojo and Blossom, Buttercup and Him, ''and'' Buttercup and Ace.
* ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'':
** Being the OfficialCouple, it's only natural that Scott and Jean had plenty of ShipTease before their RelationshipUpgrade in early season 3. Remy and Rogue also had their share of ShipTease, likely as a reference to their relationship in the comics.
** Despite them both getting love interests in season 2, Kurt and Kitty had a lot of ShipTease throughout the show. There is some debate over whether the writers did this deliberately to please (or torture) the Kurt/Kitty shippers, if it's a case of RelationshipWritingFumble, or if [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Kurt and Kitty would have gotten together]] had there been a season five.
** The New Mutants had a truckload of it. From Iceman making an ice ballerina spin for Jubilee, to everything Sunspot and Wolfsbane did in "Retreat", to how much time Cannonball and Magma spend together.
* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'': Between Robin/Artemis, although they end up [[spoiler: sharing a BigDamnKiss with Wally and Zatanna respectively in the first season fanale, with Artemis and Wally becoming an OfficialCouple]].
* ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'':
** Depending on the episode, Gadget was either interested in Chip, interested in Dale, interested in someone else (usually a oneshot character like Sparky), not interested in anyone, or unaware of the concept of romance.
** One-shot teases like Dale and Foxglove, which carried over into the brief comic revival by Boom!. To a lesser degree there's Tammy and Chip, although this was rather [[StalkerWithACrush one-sided]] on Tammy's part.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats'', Cheetara is teased with both Lion-O (they spend an episode psychically linked, he's been shoved into her, and she has a throwaway line in the pilot about how handsome he'd become) and Tygra, who she eventually gets together with in the tie-in comics.
* The writers of ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011'' [[http://tv.ign.com/articles/117/1176532p2.html decided]] to take the original concept above and ''[[InvokedTrope run with it]],'' making Tygra Lion-O's adoptive older brother, giving them a longstanding, deep-seated SiblingRivalry and a [[SiblingTriangle shared]] attraction to Cheetara.
** In "Omens Part One", TheCharmer Tygra openly flirted with Cheetara while she's clad in [[FullBodyDisguise priestly vestments]] that leave only her ''eyes'' visible.
** In "Song of the Petalars", Lion-O had a moment holding hands with Cheetara as she comforts him during a moment of grief... promptly [[MomentKiller killed]] by Snarf's glomping his face.
** In "Journey to the Tower of Omens", Lion-O is a bit ''nervous'' over Cheetara's HandsOnApproach towards coaching him in the Sword of Omens' use, (which Wilykit notices, and merrily mocks with smooching noises) while Tygra later [[LongingLook gapes]] over Cheetara's SuperSpeed, to which a smirking Panthro quips:

* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'':
** The two-parter "Mortal Folly"/"Mortal Recoil" is filled with [[PrecociousCrush Finn/Bubblegum]] teasing. Even beyond Finn defeating [[VileVillainSaccharineShow The Lich]] with the [[ThePowerOfLove The Power of L-l-liking Someone a Lot]] thanks to the sweater Bubblegum gave him, and Finn's subsequent ineffective attempt at admitting this to Bubblegum, the two-parter ends with Bubblegum [[PuppyLove turned thirteen years old]] and giving Finn a congratulatory hug. "Too Young" continued this teasing with a vengeance, only to swerve into a ShipSinking ending.
** Intentionally [[RelationshipWritingFumble or not]], "What Was Missing" is seen as one colossal tease for Bubblegum/Marceline, the pinnacle of which was either A) a song that hinted at some incredible emotional pain in their past relationship with all the subtlety of a mountain, or B) that Bubblegum's stolen treasure was a shirt Marceline gave her (directly paralleling Finn's stolen treasure; a wad of Bubblegum's hair). [[http://www.scribd.com/doc/77248876/What-Was-Missing-Storyboard The publically released storyboard]] reveals that originally there were even ''more'' hints planned.
*** "Sky Witch", holy crap. The episode literally opens with Bubblegum ''sensually sniffing'' the shirt Marceline gave her, and the end reveals that said shirt has more emotional significance attached to it than ''Hambo'' (Marceline's stuffed animal, the only thing she has to remember her ParentalSubstitute after [[spoiler:he became the Ice King]]).
*** "Varmints" was filled to the brim with Marceline/Bubblegum ship tease, complete with lots of blushing and ending with just the sweetest SleepCute moment between the two.
** "Go With Me" is odd in that it seems to be both teasing and [[ShipSinking sinking]] Finn/Marceline at once--the whole episode makes a point of showing how they get along better than either does with Bubblegum, but Marceline [[TheNotLoveInterest pointedly turns Finn down]] when he seems to be asking her on a date. When it turns out to be NotADate she goes, and they bond over their hatred of romance in the most romantically platonic way possible.
** "Hot to the Touch" is dedicated to nothing other than teasing Finn and the Flame Princess.
*** And "Burning Low" caused a veritable explosion in the Finn/FP shippers, what with [[spoiler: Jake calling Bubblegum out as being jealous that Finn likes FP, and the [[TheBigDamnKiss huge kiss]] and heroic rescue at the end.]]
** "Gotcha!" teases Lumpy Space Princess/Finn, oddly enough, with the episode revolving around LSP trying to charm Finn and Jake only to fall for Finn's kindness and sincerity ("His hot lumps are on the ''inside''!"). Near the end, LSP even admits that she thinks Finn is "hot".
** Ever since "You Made Me" aired, fans have shipped Lemongrab with his clone. In what can only be described as something straddling the line between a ShipTease and full-blown WordOfGay, Adventure Time writer [[WordOfGod Thomas Herpich]] once drew a picture of the Lemongrabs smiling and hugging each other... while [[http://sphotos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/311281_299606876817451_1503856371_n.jpg butt naked]]. And in "All Your Fault," the Lemongrabs actually ''have children together''.
** "Too Old" refloats the Finn/Bubblegum ship to tease it briefly, only for Bubblegum to harshly shut down Finn towards the end of the episode, followed by Finn seemingly learning for the final time that the age difference between the two make them incompatible.
** "The Pajama War" seems to have brought back the Finn/Bubblegum ship. The episode revolves around the two going on a kind-of-date, spending quality time together after the Candy people shove them in the closet to have "heavenly thoughts." The two have a few heart-to-hearts, play around with a giant cat and take selfies, all culminating in the two watching a sunset (on a screen) and admitting that they enjoy hanging out together, complete with them gazing at each other with sparkling eyes. The episode ends with Finn looking fondly at the pictures of him and PB having fun and being touchy-feely on his phone. All this happens after PB admits out loud that she wants to spend time with Finn, and she doesn't even leave when her people need her, instead [[CharacterDevelopment continuing to do something for her own wants;]] chilling with Finn.

''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'':
** Phineas/Isabella gets teased a lot. Isabella spends the whole episode "Out to Launch" trying to ask Phineas to a dance... only to have him misunderstand her and invite Ferb along as a third wheel. In "That Sinking Feeling" Phineas and Ferb attempt to help Baljeet impress a girl, and Phineas later invites Isabella along, [[NotWhatItLooksLike but not in the way you'd think]]. In "One Good Scare Ought to Do It", Phineas not only spends the whole episode trying to help her, but holds her hand practically through the entire song. Many smaller examples also exist.
*** Isabella spends the whole of "The Chronicles of Meap" trying to get registered by Phineas's "Cute Tracker", to no effect. Then Phineas explains he already took her cuteness into account and set the device to ignore her from the start. When he resets it to stop ignoring her, it immediately shorts out.
*** In TheMovie, Phineas seems rather pleased when [[spoiler:Isabella kisses him]], and makes like he's going to do/say something else, but never gets the chance.
*** "Phineas and Ferb's Quantumn Boogaloo" almost confirms the ship, while at the same time opening a new can of worms. While 20 years in the future Isabella is ecstatic to hear Candace's kids comment she looks like their Aunt Isabella, proving she must marry Phineas. Then past!Candace points out she could also marry Ferb and still be their aunt, prompting a look of shock from Isabella - and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny a point and a wink]] from the [[CovertPervert usually-stoic]] Ferb.

an OfficialCouple at once--the whole episode makes a point of showing how they get along better than either does with Bubblegum, but Marceline [[TheNotLoveInterest pointedly turns Finn down]] when he seems to be asking her on a date. When it turns out to be NotADate she goes, and they bond over their hatred of romance in the most romantically platonic way possible.
** "Hot to the Touch" is dedicated to nothing other than teasing Finn and the Flame Princess.
*** And "Burning Low" caused a veritable explosion in the Finn/FP shippers, what with [[spoiler: Jake calling Bubblegum out as being jealous that Finn likes FP, and the [[TheBigDamnKiss huge kiss]] and heroic rescue at the end.]]
** "Gotcha!" teases Lumpy Space Princess/Finn, oddly enough, with the episode revolving around LSP trying to charm Finn and Jake only to fall for Finn's kindness and sincerity ("His hot lumps are on the ''inside''!"). Near the end, LSP even admits that she thinks Finn is "hot".
** Ever since "You Made Me" aired, fans have shipped Lemongrab with his clone. In what can only be described as something straddling the line between a ShipTease and full-blown WordOfGay, Adventure Time writer [[WordOfGod Thomas Herpich]] once drew a picture of the Lemongrabs smiling and hugging each other... while [[http://sphotos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/311281_299606876817451_1503856371_n.jpg butt naked]]. And in "All Your Fault," the Lemongrabs actually ''have children together''.
** "Too Old" refloats the Finn/Bubblegum ship to tease it briefly, only for Bubblegum to harshly shut down Finn towards
the end of the episode, special.]]
** Baljeet and Ginger get a little in "Bee Day" and "Bee Story". It's the first time we see them actually interact. Baljeet tells Phineas to wait a little while he talks with Ginger. And Ginger actually listed to what Baljeet was talking about where he said earlier most people either leave or fall asleep by that point.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' has the FoeYay variety of this at times between Him and Bubbles, Mojo Jojo and Blossom, Buttercup and Him, ''and'' Buttercup and Ace.
* ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' is infamous for possibly the longest ever (still ongoing!!) never-resolved WillTheyOrWontThey between Fred and Daphne (if you're not counting the live action movies). In ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' Fred proposes to Daphne, and while that didn't work out Episode 51 had [[spoiler:Fred come right out and say he loves Daphne
followed by Finn seemingly learning for the final time that the age difference between the two make them incompatible.
** "The Pajama War" seems to have brought back the Finn/Bubblegum ship. The episode revolves around the two going on
a kind-of-date, spending quality time together BigDamnKiss]]. However, after the Candy people shove them in the closet [[spoiler:the jump to have "heavenly thoughts." The two have a few heart-to-hearts, play around with a giant cat and take selfies, all culminating in the two watching a sunset (on a screen) and admitting different timeline, it's unclear if Fred's intentions were still valid at that they enjoy hanging out together, complete with them gazing at each other with sparkling eyes. The episode ends with Finn looking fondly at the pictures of him and PB having fun and being touchy-feely on his phone. All this happens after PB admits out loud that she wants to spend time with Finn, and she doesn't even leave when her people need her, instead [[CharacterDevelopment continuing to do something for her own wants;]] chilling with Finn. point.]]



* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'':
** In "[[Recap/GravityfallsS1E12Summerween Summerween]]", Candy Chiu [[SecurityCling hanging on to Dipper after the Trickster's threat]] was enough to send some shippers into fits of squeeing. There were already Candy/Dipper shippers before, but this was the first remotely shippy real interaction they could grasp.
** The episode "[[Recap/GravityFallsS2E10NorthwestMansionMystery Northwest Mansion Mystery]]" was full of Dipper/Pacifica (known as Dipcifica/Padippica by the fandom) teases. Let's see, there's Pacifica [[AccidentalHug hugging]] Dipper then getting embarrassed and trying to bribe him to forget about it, Dipper walking into a column due to trying to act suave in front of her, and of course the tender moment the two share when Dipper tells Pacifica YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre. Not to mention that in the video game "[[VideoGame/GravityFallsLegendOfTheGnomeGemulets Legend of the Gnome Gemulets]]", when Mabel mentions it, they seem to inconspicuously [[ShesNotMyGirlfriend deny it ever happened]], although Mabel [[ShipperOnDeck seems to think otherwise]]. If THAT weren't enough the [[{{Defictionalization}} published journal]] shows that Dipper admitted he thought she was becoming a decent person, thought she looked nice in a dress, and thought she smelled nice.
** There is also quite a lot of Ship Tease for a popular ship [[spoiler:that sinks in the second season which is then reinvigorated by the fans near the end,]] Wendip (Wendy and Dipper). Despite Dipper himself realizing that it is hopeless at times, the show has several episodes where the tease appears reciprocated. A couple of notable episodes include "The Inconveniencing" with their first session of really hanging out and "The Deep End," where Dipper and Wendy continually chill and have fun together as lifeguards at the pool. Then there is "Into the Bunker." This episode begins with [[spoiler:teasing but ends with sinking]]. The tease happens in the beginning with Dipper and Wendy watching a movie at her house, and there is a bit of it when [[spoiler:they get trapped in the closet and bump into each other. After that, however, the ship sinks after Wendy kindfully rejects Dipper]]. There is a little more teasing after that, though, when Dipper and Wendy hug in "Weirdmageddon Part 1." [[spoiler:"Weirdmageddon Part 3 is ultimately the biggest revival of the ship with Dipper and Wendy switching hats as they part ways until next summer]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' has unimaginable amounts of [[EveryoneHasLotsOfSex everyone on everyone]] but in the season 4 episodes, the most prominent is Archer and Lana, who have plunged into the WillTheyOrWontThey category. They used to date but since Archer's an unrepentant asshole, Lana has no desire to be in a relationship with him. However, they've slept together at least once since the break up and Archer shows signs of actually caring about her while she flip-flops between hating his guts and realizing he isn't a total JerkAss. This is taken further in ''Archer: Vice''. Along with comforting her several times whenever things got too dire, Archer has tried his damndest to be the [[spoiler:father figure he feels Lana's unborn child is going to need.]]
* Lots of this in ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012''. The writers use Donnie's crush on April as comic relief, but some fans are taking it seriously. Despite this, the writers do include some ship tease for Casey and April. On top of that, Leonardo has a variance of DatingCatwoman with Karai. They seek each other out for fun, they both care about the other's well being despite technically being enemies, and their battles absolutely reek of sexual tension. Also, to be fair to serious Donnie and April shippers, there's [[https://youtu.be/aRWc1GScT9E?t=32s this scene]].
* In IvanhoeTheKingsKnight, Rebecca gets ship tease with three different characters: Saladin's son Nur, Front-de-Boeuf's Danish cousin's son William Lampton and her friend Wamba in that order.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'':
** In "[[Recap/GravityfallsS1E12Summerween Summerween]]", Candy Chiu [[SecurityCling hanging on to Dipper after
''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'': The promos for the Trickster's threat]] was enough to send some shippers into fits of squeeing. There were already Candy/Dipper shippers before, but this was [[MilestoneCelebration 10th anniversary special]] "Truth Or Square" all focused on a scene where Spongebob and Sandy get married. In the first remotely shippy real interaction they could grasp.
** The
actual episode "[[Recap/GravityFallsS2E10NorthwestMansionMystery Northwest Mansion Mystery]]" it turns out [[spoiler:it's all part of a play. Fan reaction has not been too hostile (albeit it was full of Dipper/Pacifica (known as Dipcifica/Padippica by the fandom) teases. Let's see, there's Pacifica [[AccidentalHug hugging]] Dipper then getting embarrassed and trying to bribe him to forget about it, Dipper walking into a column due to trying to act suave in front of her, and of course the tender moment the two share when Dipper tells Pacifica YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre.

* ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'' contains several Ship Teases involving Rick and Jedda. For example, at the end of "The Men of Frost":
--->'''Rick''' (referring to guest character Elgar): He's a great guy, Jedda. I can see why he's so special to you.
--->'''Jedda''': Yes, he is. But no-one's as special to me as you are, Rick.
* Throughout ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien'' there are hints that King Julien and his bodyguard Clover could be an item. She gets extremely upset when Julien starts dating her twin sister Crimson, but adamantly denies it's because she's jealous. Most subtly, both characters [[HatesBeingTouched don't like it when characters randomly touch them]], but are generally fine if it's each other doing the touching.
* ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' might as well be the one to top them all. The main premise of two superheroes who are in love with each others' alter egos is a breeding ground for this.

Or Terra/Beast Boy. Beast Boy and Raven are teased in the ''ComicBook/TeenTitansGo'' comics, [[RecursiveAdaptation based off the animated series]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' continually teases the Beast Boy and Raven pairing even further than its original cartoon, featuring many shorts dedicated to them.

She she has a throwaway line in the pilot about how handsome he'd become) and Tygra, who she eventually gets extremely upset when Julien starts dating her twin sister Crimson, but adamantly denies it's because together with in the tie-in comics.
* The writers of ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011'' [[http://tv.ign.com/articles/117/1176532p2.html decided]] to take the original concept above and ''[[InvokedTrope run with it]],'' making Tygra Lion-O's adoptive older brother, giving them a longstanding, deep-seated SiblingRivalry and a [[SiblingTriangle shared]] attraction to Cheetara.
** In "Omens Part One", TheCharmer Tygra openly flirted with Cheetara while
she's jealous. clad in [[FullBodyDisguise priestly vestments]] that leave only her ''eyes'' visible.
** In "Song of the Petalars", Lion-O had a moment holding hands with Cheetara as she comforts him during a moment of grief... promptly [[MomentKiller killed]] by Snarf's glomping his face.
** In "Journey to the Tower of Omens", Lion-O is a bit ''nervous'' over Cheetara's HandsOnApproach towards coaching him in the Sword of Omens' use, (which Wilykit notices, and merrily mocks with smooching noises) while Tygra later [[LongingLook gapes]] over Cheetara's SuperSpeed, to which a smirking Panthro quips:
-->'''Panthro:''' Close that mouth; you're drooling.
* Babs and Buster Bunny ([[RunningGag No relation]]) in ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures''. Buster and Babs can't seem to decide whether they're just really good friends or a couple, and the writers had quite a bit of fun teasing us about it until the third season (when they finally started being overtly romantic).
* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'':
** During season 2 (''Total Drama Action'') the writers loved to tease Duncan with girls other than his canon love interest Courtney. Mostly this was with [[FanPreferredCouple Gwen]] but he also ended up kissing Heather (as part of a challenge) and going on a 'date' with Lindsay (to deliberately infuriate Courtney). Then season three, the tease with Gwen [[RelationshipUpgrade became the truth]].
%%** Harold with Heather and Leshawna.
** [[TheSmartGuy Noah]]/[[ManicPixieDreamGirl Izzy]] seem to be just friends, but a lot of their interactions come off as cutesy or romantic. They also happen to be a FanPreferredCouple.
** Heather and Alejandro in World Tour. It's actually confirmed.
%%**
Most subtly, scenes with Courtney and Gwen in ''All-Stars'' can count as this.
* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'':
** "Metal Attraction" deliberately plays with Bulkhead/Arcee, right down to Miko acting jealous (a tease in an of itself depending on you want to look at it).
** The biggest amount of shipping seems to be between Arcee and Jack. If only because the writers seem to like teasing nearly every type of relationship the two of them could possibly have.
** Arcee has been shipteased with almost every other Autobot. Shiptease moments include; Arcee/Cliffjumper in Out of the Past, Arcee/Optimus Prime in Scrapheap, Arcee/Wheeljack in Plus One, and Arcee/Bumblebee in Predacons Rising.
* ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'':
** Being the OfficialCouple, it's only natural that Scott and Jean had plenty of ShipTease before their RelationshipUpgrade in early season 3. Remy and Rogue also had their share of ShipTease, likely as a reference to their relationship in the comics.
** Despite them
both characters [[HatesBeingTouched don't like it when characters randomly touch them]], but are generally fine getting love interests in season 2, Kurt and Kitty had a lot of ShipTease throughout the show. There is some debate over whether the writers did this deliberately to please (or torture) the Kurt/Kitty shippers, if it's each other doing the touching.
