* ''Series/{{Rainbow}}'', the British answer to ''SesameStreet'', features two muppets who look perfectly alright...yet Bungle, a guy in a suit, falls ''right'' into the UncannyValley with his realistic movements and his unfortunate design.

* One episode of ''Series/{[The Librarians 2014}}'' has the team chasing down a shapeshifter called Hoklonote, which impersonates other people, but has a tendency to break out into an inhumanly wide grin.

added example
* The Adult Swim show ''TimAndEricAwesomeShowGreatJob'' uses this trope for comedic effect. Whenever pictures of children are displayed on the show, there's always something terribly wrong with their face. The funny thing is, it's possible for kids to actually look like that.

* PlayedForLaughs in the recurring ''SaturdayNightLive'' sketch, "The Merryville Brothers", which features a trio of animatronic musicians (played by cast members) that engage in increasingly creepy activities towards couples trapped on their rides, [[spoiler: usually culminating in trying to kill or harass the riders in an over-the-top manner]].

* For Halloween 2015, the anchors of ''Series/{{Today}}'' did a group ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' cosplay, [[http://chalie22.tumblr.com/post/132274054669/the-today-show-dresses-as-the-peanuts-gang-and which fits this trope nicely due to how unrecognizable most of them looked with the costumes.]]

** What about April the Robot from I Was Made To Love You? She's an in-universe example, as the main characters all slowly realize there is something wrong with the super-cheery way she talks, the way she walks, and eventually her huge amounts of strength.

Though it has the same problems as April, her friends fail to realize they're talking to a robot, merely thinking that their friend that they've known for years is behaving oddly for some reason, until Buffy herself shows up.

*** Of course, since Data spent so much time ''out'' of the Valley, the scene makes the audience [[TheWoobie sympathise with him]] and make Riker look like a {{jerkass}}. Turns out he felt like one too. ** Which may be a big reason why the Amargosa scene in ''Generations'' willied out a lot of people. Especially when his emotion chip overloaded and he couldn't stop laughing.

* Speaking of Franchise/TheMuppets proper, most Muppets steer far clear of the valley because of their obviously exaggerated portions and colorful cartoonish looks. But every now and then one will be introduced that is just a little too human while not being human enough, and it'll creep people out. The character of Digit from the "MuppeTelevision" segments of Series/TheJimHensonHour is a prime example, often topping lists of creepiest Muppets; the bug eyes that are not open fully and barely moving mouth while at the same time having an otherwise human facial proportion is just disturbing.
