* From [[MyLittlePonyG3 My Little Pony generation 3.5]], the Newborn "Cuties". Besides looking like they had a permanent "duck face," the size of their eyes compared to the rest of their bodies [[http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2nu7muf&s=3#.VI8nH9LF8uc looks a little bit off]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'':
** Something about the animation is not quite right. The series costs a lot (over $11 mil. USD) and it shows. The characters are very expressive but the character designs combined with this expressiveness can make them look uncanny. Certain characters also have a plasticy look to them. The original {{animesque}} 2D trailer was far less in the valley.
** Rose is really freaky looking compared to everyone else. She has huge eyes for some reason.

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}: The Legend Reborn'' used the actual LEGO toys as its character models with an absolutely minimal amount of tweaking, to make them seem more realistic while still keeping the intended "toy look". One added feature was the rotten-looking teeth and weird lips formed by a ''second'' row of mechanical teeth that slid over the real ones, but their true jaw-line still remained apparent. When they smiled, it looked horrifying.

* ''MrMeaty'' was ''made'' of this. Especially [[http://www.btvision.bt.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/mr_meaty_cms_big.jpg the two main characters]].

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'': The original pilot. The animation is much more detailed and makes the characters look ugly or downright monstrous, especially the necks.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'': The original pilot. The animation is much more detailed and makes the characters look ugly or downright monstrous, especially the necks. It's also present in the first opening, used for ''six years'' and long after the animation and art style had become more pleasing to the eye.

** Even worse were the crossovers with ''FairlyOddParents''. When the ''[[WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius Jimmy Neutron]]'' characters went into the ''FairlyOddParents'' cartoon and [[http://67.media.tumblr.com/9d9a2ccf129424132c023655a70bf984/tumblr_mu28wfpZjl1rl8y2zo1_400.jpg were animated in its 2D style]], it was relatively okay, even if their character designs were strikingly different. But when [[http://66.media.tumblr.com/7f245a6e6c9d54aa98cb639dc0d12148/tumblr_mu28wfpZjl1rl8y2zo2_400.jpg Fairly OddParents]] [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/jimmyneutron/images/f/ff/Vlcsnap-2012-12-09-17h41m39s170.png/revision/latest?cb=20130101052757 were rendered in]] [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/jimmyneutron/images/8/81/Vlcsnap-2012-12-09-17h40m18s141.png/revision/latest?cb=20130101052846 Jimmy Neutron's 3D style...]] the results were downright ''horrifying''.

** Lenny (The football helmet) averts this when he betrays them for the K.N.D. He's still a bit weird, but seems like a normal kid with a nasally lisp thanks to his headgear. [[spoiler:Then he dives headfirst back into the creepy hole when he reveals himself as a triple agent. He ''slides back into his place in the group with a slurping sound''.]]

* If you're still not clear on what the Uncanny Valley looks like, watch ''SidTheScienceKid''.

* ''WesternAnimation/ZackAndQuack'': Although the characters are supposed to look like they're in a popup book, it's not hard to feel they just look weird.

* Baby Jake [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/baby-jake/]], part of Creator/TheBBC's latest line of WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs programming that is actually meant for toddlers. Words just cannot describe it, and the only thing deeper into the valley than the show itself are the ''toys'' (see Toys section).
