* In a universe known for it's [[{{Angst}} angst]] and DysfunctionJunction, ComicBook/SquirrelGirl is a breath of fresh air. She's an eternally happy, perky superheroine with the ability to talk to squirrels, is powerful enough to defeat titans like SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom and SelfDemonstrating/{{Thanos}} without breaking a sweat, and unlike the majority of heroes in her universe and others, she chose to be a hero not because of some great personal tragedy, but simply because she wanted to do good (and because she's a big fan of superheroes). The comics she's featured in tend to be hilarious (especially [[Creator/RyanNorth Ryan North's]] ComicBook/TheUnbeatableSquirrelGirl) and a great example of LighterAndSofter [[TropesAreNotBad not necessarily being a bad thing]].

* Most road safety PSAs take the ScareEmStraight approach and show you the gory consequences if you don't buckle your seatbelt, speed, drink-drive, etc. [[https://youtu.be/h-8PBx7isoM Embrace Life]] takes a very different tack and simply wants to remind you that you should look after yourself because there are people who love you and who need you to come home safe. It's simple, powerful, heartwarming and a tearjerker all in one and no one will not want to wear a seat belt the next time they get into a car after seeing it.

* ''E.C. Segar's {{Popeye}}'' anthologies are all excellent comics that have stood the passage of time. While his artwork is fairly crude, Segar created some of the most memorable characters in comic history, and his wit is as sharp as a razor. Even if you're already a fan of the Popeye cartoons, the original comics will only enhance your appreciation for the series even more.

* ''{{Superman}}''. Has there been a hero who's brought this much hope to people? He's a MessianicArchetype, TheParagon, TheCape, basically the ideal hero. He has the powers of a [[PhysicalGod God]] but never once uses them to hurt or control people. Despite the fact he get's overshadowed by ''Batman'' lately. Superman has always been synonomous with [[HopeBringer Hope]].
** Greatest example of Superman's greatness? His scene talking down a jumper in ComicBook/AllStarSuperman.
** ComicBook/AllStarSuperman itself is Sweet Dreams Fuel, despite its TearJerker premise.

** Disney/LiloAndStitch is about a little girl befriending [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter an adorable yet mischievous alien]] and teaching it the meaning of family. In addition to the film's optimistic tone, nearly all the main characters are fun and quirky. [[HeelFaceTurn Two of the minor villains are even redeemed.]]
** Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove. Cute, funny, and so uplifting you won't care if it doesn't make sense. It has a great feel to it and it's near-impossible to watch it and not like it.

** If you ''really'' want an example of this, please watch the (incredibly underrated) Disney film ''Disney/{{Bolt}}''. In short, we get a beginning consisting of the main character as a puppy being adopted by Penny as an adorable little girl and Bolt going across the entire country with two other incredibly adorable animals in tow just because he loves his person so much, in the middle a montage of him doing adorable dog stuff as he gains his identity (all while they're bonding and a happy country/pop song is playing in the background), and at the end we get to see all the main characters happily living together in a TastesLikeDiabetes animation style and an incredibly sweet pop song. It is a testament to both CrowningMomentofAwesome and CrowningMomentofHeartwarming.

* While ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' is filled with NightmareFuel courtesy of the Decepticons, it also has the BGM ''Arrival to Earth''. Why is it here? Because it's the theme of the Autobots when they, well, arrive on earth. it's majestic and fits the tone of alien robot guardians coming from the stars to save us better than anything else in the film, and accompanies what may just be the best sequence in any Creator/MichaelBay film.

** Follow-up ''Film/MuppetsMostWanted'' also has its sweet dreams fuel moments, such as the opening song (or just about ALL the songs), as well as some of the [[Funny/MuppetsMostWanted sillier]] and [[HeReallyCanAct more well-acted moments]]. (Less sweet dreams inducing is the premise: Kermit being replaced by an evil doppelganger and [[HilarityEnsues all hell breaking loose]].)
