Added DiffLines:

* The actor Langdon Cobb from ''WesternAnimation/Futurama'' always wears a bag over his head, no matter what he's doing or what movie he's acting in. He gives the explanation that it's an artistic choice, but in reality he's an alien species whose appearance will drain the life force of anyone who looks at it, even if it's just a picture. Bender actually ''does'' manage to take a picture of his face, but it is never shown to the audience.

* A staple of "golden age" theatrical shorts (''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'', etc.) in the '40s and '50s was to have a human character, typically female, who was only shown from the knees down. Examples include Mammy Two-Shoes (and her white, sometimes Irish, replacement as seen in edited versions of the shorts and in the short-lived ''Tom and Jerry Tales''), in the ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' shorts; Sylvester and Tweety's owner in ''Tweetie Pie'' (though not Granny in the later shorts); J.L. in the Daffy Duck cartoon "The Scarlet Pumpernickel," and Marc Antony's owner in Chuck Jones' ''Feed the Kitty''.

** It's because the babies are small and on the floor, and keeping them in the shot means only focusing on Nanny's legs. It turned into a RunningGag: if Nanny picks up a baby you still only see the back of her head or her chest from the neck down; pictures of Nanny have the faces obscured; and any other grownups who ever appear, such as a neighbouring friendly policeman, are shown the same way.

** The Gameboy Advance version of ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobSquarePantsMovie'' video game uses this trope on [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMp4MVz4faA# David Hasslehoff in the cutscenes]] (see10:32 in video). However, if you've seen the film, you will realize that it's just a screenshot of his chest taken from another scene
* ''RockyAndBullwinkle'' - Mister Big, superior to Boris Badenov (and possibly Fearless Leader) was mostly seen as an ominous looming shadow - but was revealed to be small. Very small, like insect sized.

* On ''WesternAnimation/ThePJs'' The woman who works at HUD is only ever seen in shadow. Juicy's parents are morbidly obese and his mother is never seen, but all we see of his father are his side and an arm.
