* The page image is from the Disney short "How to Have an Accident in the Home". where Donald is the careless, accident-prone protagonist is jabbing a knife into the still-connected and operating toaster while complaining "confounded infernal contraption", immediately before the inevitable ''ZAP'' and electric fireworks. Donald also appeared in "How to Have an Accident at Work", pointing out accidents caused in the workplace due to carelessness.

** As a matter of fact, the same could be told about the humans in this series in general. Seriously, a kid with [[PaperThinDisguise green skin, no ears, a weird uniform]] and [[LargeHam megalomaniac tics and mannerisms]], yet they don't suspect a thing. The [[OnlySaneMan only one to notice anything]] is Dib, and everyone just think he's talking nonsense.
*** Dib's sister Gaz seems to know about the aliens, and has used their technology or helped save the world (grudgingly) before, but the thing is though she knows the truth, she just doesn't care. In fact, in one episode she outright states she doesn't give a damn what Zim is doing because he's way too incompetent to do any damage.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThundarrTheBarbarian'': Many of the wizards Thundarr battles contribute to their own demises, but Vashtarr, the villain of the episode "Prophesy of Peril", is the absolute worst. When Vashtarr learns of a prophesy that three specific women will join forces to defeat him, he tries to stop them. One of the women is a fashion model from the 20th century, thousands of years before Vashtarr's time. First he time travels to the past to kidnap her; if he hadn't she would have died centuries before he was even born. Then, once he has captured her, instead of killing her he locks her in a cell that she escapes easily despite having no powers or relevant skills. Afterwards, she meets the other two women and strips him of his powers, but if had either left her alone in her own time or either killed or properly secured her when he had the chance he never would have been defeated.

* Hank and Dean from ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' In fact, they ''truly are'' Too Dumb to Live: the show reveals that they have both died 14 times, mostly due to their own incredible stupidity. Describing them as "death-prone", their father keeps a few [[ReplacementGoldfish clones]] growing in the lab as a precaution.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/DanVs'', Dan cooks up a poisonous meatloaf to feed to the animals at the animal shelter because he can't sleep during the night. His friend Chris comes around and ''ends up eating'' the meatloaf even after Dan has told him about his plan. Chris would end up exactly as what you'd expect.

* Rigby in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' tried to eat eggs in order to win a hat, despite the fact that he is highly allergic to eggs. You can guess where that landed him in.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'', Rocko gets a piece of spinach stuck in between his teeth, which doesn't come out even after brushing and flossing. Finally, he uses a jackhammer and winds up in the hospital.

* At the climax of the two-part ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero'' episode "There's No Place Like Springfield", Shipwreck steals a chemical the villains are working on (in their town base, called Springfield) that turns water into an explosive, and with Destro and a few mooks in hot pursuit, pours it down the drain of a lab sink. When Destro and the mooks break in, he holds a match over the drain, explaining that the chemical would likely blow up the entire base now that he's poured it into the plumbing system. Destro has a good laugh at this, and tells him a match isn't enough, and it would need something like laser-fire to ignite it; Shipwreck think's he lying and drops the match. Destro isn't lying. OhCrap. But then, the two mooks completely forget what he said, open fire on Shipwreck with their ''laser rifles'', missing, hitting the sink, and... Well, suffice to say now there really ''is'' [[LiteralMetaphor no place like Springfield.]]

* The ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' episode "Chill of the Night!", retells the story of Batman confronting [[TokenMotivationalNemesis Joe Chill]] over the fact that Chill killed his parents. Like in the original story, Chill runs out to get some criminals to help him--and reveals his role in the creation of Batman while doing so. Unlike the original story, though, where it was just goons, the criminals he tells this to are members of Batman's rogues gallery, including the Joker--and in both stories, the people Chill tells this to doesn't take too kindly to Chill being the reason Batman exists, and while it's implied the Spectre killed him, the rogues still tried to kill Chill first.

* ''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.
