* The ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' episode "Cookie Chomper III" also teaches about death, this time that of a pet. The Sevilles take in a lost kitten, which they name Cookie Chomper III or Cookie. The chipmunks spend the first few minutes adjusting to life with their new friend, but things take a tragic turn when Cookie gets out of the house and is run over by a car. The rest of the episode shows how the chipmunks deal with their loss - Theodore refuses to accept that the cat is dead, Alvin tries to get rid of all the houseplants and replace them with artificial plants (so that nothing else can die on them), and Simon is too miserable to do anything. Dave later convinces the chipmunks to think about the happy memories they have of Cookie. The episode ends with Dave and the chipmunks going to the animal shelter to get a new pet - Theodore sadly says this pet won't be the same as Cookie, but Dave says they will love it just as much. (Rather than choosing another cat, they choose a dog which they name Lily.)

* Nickelodeon's ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger'' was, as far as Nicktoons go, never one to shirk away from touching on real adolescent issues. Three notable episodes stand apart for their efforts to address particularly tough subject matter: "Stuff'll Kill Ya" (about caffeine addiction), "And She Was Gone" (about depression, suicide, and how schools overreact to students who are allegedly depressed or suicidal by assuming what they write is a cry for help), and "Losing Nana Bishop" (about death and coping with loss). "And She Was Gone" was nominated for an Emmy Award in Outstanding Animated Program (Less Than One Hour).

** [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016 The 2016 reboot]] has an episode where the girls discover a pony that wants to be a unicorn. The episode has been described by WordOfGod as being a metaphor for gender dysphoria, though its moral is cheapened somewhat due to the ending featuring said pony, [[spoiler:after having undergone rigorous transformations via the Professor, being discovered to have been a unicorn the entire time (its horn was tucked away under its mane).]]

** The ValentinesDayEpisode also counts as it teaches kids not to hit other people. It starts with Bobby's female friend telling him that she made her Valentine's Day gift for him, but Bobby gets annoyed and pushes her. Bobby then decides to ask something to his friend, and she tells him that she made a promise and apologizes to him. Bobby then tells her "No fair!" and runs off, making her cry. When Bobby returns home, his mother scolds him by telling him not to hit a girl. The scene then transitions to a {{game show appearance}} where the hosts tell him that Bobby hit a girl, but Bobby says that he didn't hit her but pushed her - and then another guest enlightens him by stating that hitting and pushing are basically the same thing. And yes, Bobby does apologize to his friend.
** Another episode in the series has Bobby learning about where babies come from, since he's just found out that his mother is pregnant. Throughout the episode, Bobby asks this question to his father, his uncle and (near the end of the episode) his mother. Before the closing credits roll, Bobby endorses some books that parents can use to teach their kids about birth, such as ''How You Were Born''. This would later start a one season arc of Bobby's mother being pregnant and eventually going into labor.

** "Shelter From The Storm" is similar to "April 9th" in that it's related to real life events. The episode is a response to Hurricane Sandy. One of the two main plots involves Brain becoming overly anxious after Hurricane Sadie and being sent to a therapist, voiced by Creator/IdinaMenzel, and Muffy having to stay in a shelter instead of a hotel while traveling with her parents. The other two sub-plots have Arthur fundraising for pets abandoned during the hurricane and the other involves a character worried her father would be too busy working to come home for her birthday.

** This was played straight in "Equal Fights" (focusing on sexism) where the town is terrorized by a feminist villain called Femme Fatale, who tricks the girls into hating boys with her propaganda. Ms. Keane and Ms. Bellum manage to bring the girls back to normal and they take Femme Fatale to jail after telling her that she has no idea what she's talking about.

Near the end of the episode, Bobby's father announces to Bobby that Abe just passed away. Bobby at first doesn't understand what death is, but Bobby's father later means that he will never come back. This causes Bobby to cry in pure sadness, but in the end he actually gets happy and remembering how good of a friend and how much fun Abe was.

Alvin tries to get rid of all the houseplants, saying they will only have artificial plants from now on so that nothing else can die on them. Simon is too miserable to do anything.
