* ''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.

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).

* In the 1960s there were action animated shows (often based on MarvelComics) that actually were not animated at all. Yes, apparently they reached a new low in how to be cheap on animation. But how did they handle the characters talking? Simple! When a character spoke, that character would be a still drawing with a human mouth on the face speaking. This is called SynchroVox and it gave off what is arguably the first and one of the creepier examples of Uncanny Valley in North American animation. Say what you will about [[TheSeventies the 1970s]] being a [[TheDarkAgeOfAnimation Dark Age for TV animation]], but by that time that practice was no longer the least bit common. (Nowadays it's only very rarely used for [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants comedic effect]] and for the AnnoyingOrange series, where two of the same human eye and a human mouth are used to make talking inanimate objects.)
