I'm sure this is something I've seen crop up in children's cartoons a ton of times, but I can't think of any examples.

The hero of the story has just lost a bet or a competition or something. Since it's the hero, they're kind and humble about it, and they graciously accept defeat. They offer whatever to the winner, and it turns out that this act of kindness actually helps the hero be the real winner in the long run.

Unfortunately, the only children's cartoon that's clear in my memory right now is MLP. Did this show up in some Disney movie or fairy tale or something? The closest example I can think of right now is how Charlie "wins" in the film "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory" (1971). Thanks for any help.
