* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' parodied ''Series/TheHills'' and ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes'' by putting three of the dumbest celebrities together. One of them drove the car off the road when he complained things were "too hard" and claimed the tires were flat. The other complained to the main dumb idiot that she was just jealous that she got Aaron ''the dumb driver'' and that things were also "too hard." Both idiots left in a huff. Finally, the third idiot couldn't get back into the car, and realized either the dumb blonde or the dumb driver had the car keys. Instead of going after them, she decided to go the completely OPPOSITE way.

** Later, Pam eats tofu shellfish while at an all-you-can-eat buffet, despite the fact that she it fatally allergic to it. When told that she should stop eating, she keeps doing it. Later, she tries to con the Yakuza into buying counterfeit money for amphetamines. Instead of trying to sell the drugs, she just eats them.

** In the episode with Stampy the elephant, Homer got stuck in a tar pit. He first tried to pull out his legs with each arm, getting his arms and legs stuck. Then he tried to use his head to pull out his arms. Stampy was the only reason Homer survived.

*** In the same episode, mobsters are trying to shoot Homer while he's buying a car and are such bad shots they shoot the car he's looking at instead of him, but instead of Homer or the salesman taking cover they just stand there while the car is shot dozens of times. Later on a similar thing happens while Flanders is talking to Homer and thus he gets shot instead, twice. Both times instead of taking cover Flanders simply stands up and explains that he had an item over his heart that saved him before finally deciding to get out of there.

*** Grimes is TooDumbToLive ''deconstructed''. One could argue that he wasn't too ''dumb'' to live, he was driven insane with frustration because ''Homer'' was literally too stupid to survive day-to-day life, if it weren't for the fact that he's a cartoon; the character of Frank Grimes was designed to illustrate this concept. That's right, folks: Homer Simpson is Too Dumb for ''other people'' to Live.

*** In the 2011 edition, he decides to chew off his arm in order to reach his bag of candy, rather than wait twenty minutes to have his arm freed. He chews off the wrong arm. [[UpToEleven Then the wrong]] '''[[UpToEleven leg]]'''.

** Muriel is ''always'' fooled by the bad guys no matter how bizarre or obvious their disguises, even if said villain has menaced them before. There one episode where she eats an explosive cyborg carrot missile... ''twice''. Though she does have her moments of clarity (ex. "Family Business").

* Eustace from ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog''. Well, just Eustace, plain and simple. In fact, his stupidity ''does'' get him killed a lot, but the show makes good use of the ResetButton.

**** Pretty much the entire cast who isn't Lisa can be this and their stupidity increases to the point in the non-canon Halloween specials where their very own stupidity can spell out their own demise as frequently seen with Bart and Homer... especially Homer!
