* The obscure 2002 [=CGI=] Christmas special ''WesternAnimation/TheRapsittieStreetKidsBelieveInSanta'' has gained some infamy for its atrocious looking character designs, which are downright hideous-looking especially by 2002 standards of [=CGI=] animation. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4e-wuyjgDPQ Just look at them!]]



* Descendants Wicked World is an animated series that showed the worst of computer animation ever shown on screen. The character designs tried way too hard to capture the classic Disney style onto the cast of the 2015 TV film it is based on, and it does not look right whatsoever, and what is even worse is that the result ended up being too horrific for children to look at. Thank God that Invisible Sister, another 2015 TV film from Disney, will avoid having this abomination of CGI by having hand-drawn animation just like Phineas and Ferb and Gravity Falls, if that film ever gets adapted into an animated series sometime in the future.
* Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie tried to put Dav Pilkey's characters into computer animation, and they look a bit wierd..

* Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie tried to put Dav Pilkey's characters into computer animation, Most, if not all, of the character designs in ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry: Willy Wonka and they the Chocolate Factory'' just look a bit wierd..[[http://grawly.tumblr.com/post/162799624613/pearlescentsheep-i-watched-that-tom-and-jerry straight-up]] [[http://bumpsgonnagooseya.tumblr.com/post/159814707585/i-wanted-to-continue-the-posts-of-the-beautiful weird]], to the point where some have unfavorably compared the film to the infamous [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDIGames Legend Of Zelda CD-i games]].

* The infamous ''WesternAnimation/TheRapsittieStreetKidsBelieveInSanta'' special takes it UpToEleven with its [[NoBudget severe budget problems]] during the production. The result has all the characters resembling mangled-up sex dolls who move in very robotic and unnerving ways. The backgrounds are no better as they appear to be some freakishly unnatural hybrid between hand-drawn and CG renderings. [[EpicFail Did we mention that the makers behind this had no experience in animation?]]

* ''[[ThomasTheTankEngine Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends]]'' is this to some fans after the show's format was converted from using model trains to CGI with the characters actually moving their mouths while they talk.

* Done specifically in ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' when Bill Cipher [[DemonicPossession possesses]] Dipper's body to make things all that much creepier. As such, Dippers facial features become [[http://33.media.tumblr.com/4abcbd7cb0062ddc6c0b741172d83fe9/tumblr_nbmux2Iynt1qduyqso7_250.gif slightly more detailed]], to the point he enters this territory. What's worse, he won't...stop...''[[SlasherSmile smiling]]''.
** Done in the same way with [[http://68.media.tumblr.com/1e0ac773ab0f6c3b1db4c4aba7c91cb6/tumblr_inline_nbgu29A4RX1rvm5yj.png this]] handsome fellow.
** Then of course there's Giffany when she possesses an animatronic. Check the ''UncannyValley/VideoGames'' section for reasons why.

* In ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'', ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' and ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'', Toyman version for [[Franchise/DCAnimatedUniverse DCAU]] falls into this trope, with his very big toy head.

* Played intentionally in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' in any episode involving [[LotusEaterMachine Rose's Room.]] The room can accurately represent Steven's views of his friends and family[[spoiler: even managing to fool him with a replica of Connie]], but this trope comes into play whenever it attempts to replicate too much, such as ''the whole of Beach City'', or a complete personality. The [[AGlitchInTheMatrix result]] [[SpeakInUnison can]] [[BrokenRecord be]] [[MoodWhiplash creepy,]] if well-intentioned by the eponymous room.

to:

* Played ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'':
** Garnet's [[ThirdEye third eye]] ([[spoiler:and in turn, Sapphire's [[{{Cyclops}} single eye]]]]) can invoke this in first-time viewers. This is presumably why Garnet wears a [[CoolShades visor]] ([[spoiler:and why Sapphire's hair [[BlindingBangs covers her face]]]]).
** [[BigBad The Diamonds]] stand around 30 feet tall, are drawn with more detailed facial features and have [[HellishPupils diamond-shaped pupils]]. In addition, Yellow Diamond has a [[LongNeck really long neck]] and a piercing glare, while Blue diamond has a [[ForeheadOfDoom tall forehead]] and a perpetually droopy face. Not helping is the fact that [[{{Leitmotif}} the music accompanying them]] is deliberately unsettling.
** Smoky Quartz is one of the more human-like fusions, except their [[MultiArmedAndDangerous left hand divides into two]], giving them an odd number of limbs in total.
** While [[DependingOnTheArtist creative freedom is encouraged for storyboard artists]], there are some insistences where the characters look [[OffModel off]], such as Pearl being too stretched out, Amethyst appearing too bloated and Steven's face misshaping. [[ArtEvolution This was more notorious in]] [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness the earlier episodes]].
** Deliberately invoked with Frybo when brought to life. It moves like an animatronic, [[LiteralMinded follows orders literally]], materializes food from inside itself and [[SymbolicBlood 'bleeds' ketchup and mustard]]. Later it gains vain-like bulges and the fries on the top of its head [[CombatTentacles become prehensile]].

* 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 [[UsefulNotes/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 WebVideo/TheAnnoyingOrange series, where two of the same human eye and a human mouth are used to make talking inanimate objects.)
