* The "Rad Dudes Wit Bad Tudes" episode of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' revolves around this. Robin says "rad" and gets called out by the other Titans for using outdated slang. He is the only one of his group to consider rollerblades cool. The others think they're old and call rollerbladers "grandpas". The entire episode is full of 1980s slang and the Titans start dressing like neon, 80s stereotypes.

* Tends to be the default mode of both Kevin and Nazz in ''[[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy Ed, Edd n' Eddy]]''. Kevin's particularly fond of calling people he doesn't like "dorks" or some variation thereof, and insulting Edd with "Double Dweeb" [[DontExplainTheJoke (as opposed to his usual nickname "Double D")]]. He's also into stereotypically cool things like customizing his bicycles.

** Mr. Lancer especially. He even has a book called "How 2 B Hip", which he often reads from when attempting to "connect" with his students, which is horribly outdated. Even the students give him weird looks and try to leave leave when he tries to talk to them from it.

** The characters rampantly use the word "[[NeverSayDie waste]]":
** Mr. Lancer's book "How To Be Hip", judging from the slang used, must be decades old. Even the kids at Casper give him weird looks and leave when he tries to talk to them from it.
%%** To say nothing of Sidney Poindexter. To give you an idea, he's from '''the '50s'''.
%%** Technus is another offender. He uses this trope in every appearance and makes the main characters' ears bleed.

%%** Remember
usage. This is remarkably tone-deaf coming from a show that was just as likely to horrendously misuse slang as the Kooks are in-universe. "Remember when the Squid totally BEEFED IT??IT?"



* In season 1 of ''[[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]]'' 's dub of ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'', Musa seemed addicted to slang. Her use of it gradually toned down in S2.

%%* This trope was one of the many things about * ''WesternAnimation/YoYogi'' is the kind of show that caused could have only been spawned in the early 1990s, featuring WesternAnimation/YogiBear to stop starring and company wearing neon-color clothes and backwards baseball caps, hanging out at the mall, skateboarding, and doing other typically "cool" '90s stuff. It's one of many reasons that Yogi doesn't star in regular cartoons.cartoons anymore.



* ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' had shades of this, with Sonic's catchphrase "way past cool", but ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'' took this to a whole new level with Manic, who was raised by thieves and repeatedly uses lingo like "crashing!" "ripping!" and "bogus".
