** Ocho, the 8-bit spider, only spoke in arcade beeps in the pilot and in Season 1. As of Season 2, he can speak English.

* Coco in ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends''. Frequently, the other characters repeat her lines a la RepeatingSoTheAudienceCanHear: "Coco coco!" "Ripoff artist?!?" The ambigious nature of her dialogue is often played for laughs, such as when Coco makes a suggestion about dealing with a common enemy that leaves everyone else shaken and Mac replying "[[NoodleIncident I think we'd go to jail if we did that]]." Her clucking does, however, match the syllables of an equivalant, sensible phrase in English ("Co-CO!"/"Yeah, right!").
* Snowpea in ''WesternAnimation/MuchaLucha'' who is only capable of saying [[AmbiguousGender his or her]] [[PokemonSpeak own name]].

* The title character in ''IvorTheEngine'' could only communicate through his organ-pipe whistle. How comprehensible he was varied from episode to episode and character to character, though Jones the Steam seemed able to hold full conversations with him.

** If one were to slow down their dialogue, they speak very clearly; it's worth noting that until 1950, all of their dialogue was repeated from their first episode "Private Pluto".

** In reality, if one listens to the General carefully, they can tell he is actually just talking very fast.
* Rufflefeather from the "Go Go Gophers" segments of ''WesternAnimation/{{Underdog}}'' speaks a fictitious American Indian language. It doesn't offer much variety to the phonemes; in fact, if Runningboard didn't understand him, we might assume that he just sputters insanely. This is ironic, because Rufflefeather is TheSmartGuy who comes up with most of their plans to screw up the cavalry.
* Ron Stoppable's pet molerat Rufus in ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime,'' Bumblebee does not speak, presumably for similar reasons as his movie counterpart. He communicates by way of electronic beeps a la R2-D2, and is understood just fine by his fellow Cybertronians, but can't use human speech. Raf Esquivel can understand him anyway, and as of the end of season one, the reason for this remains unknown. Even he has said he doesn't know why he can understand 'Bee.
** This gets plot relevance later on when [[spoiler:It exposes the fake Optimus Prime, who can't understand a word he's saying.Not that it helped much.]]

* [[MotorMouth Pinkie Pie]] become this in the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "Bridle Gossip" when her tongue swells up after walking through the poison joke. When the main cast goes to confront Zecora, thinking she caused the various problems they're suffering with a curse, and Pinkie wants to sing her song about Zecora again, she briefly tries, before begging Fluttershy to do so. Fluttershy agrees, not sounding thrilled about the idea.

* Ricky's great-grandmother from ''WesternAnimation/TheRapsittieKidsBelieveInSanta''. She speaks in unintelligible mumbles followed by a word or short sentence related to the conversation. However, according to her voice actress Debra Wilson, she had been given actual dialogue but the editors decided to splice her dialogue together so she couldn't be understood.
