----
%% * ''WesternAnimation/ThreeTwoOnePenguins'' has Jason, Michelle, Dr. Fidgel, and Kevin.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/AaahhRealMonsters'' had Ickis.
%% * Socrates from ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresFromTheBookOfVirtues''.
%% * Jimmy, Carl, and Sheen from ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius''. Hugh also counts because he is a BumblingDad who comes off as embarrassing.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'':
%% ** Finn the Human, and a little less often, Jake the Dog.They're just a couple of aw-shucks, fun loving guys.
%% ** The Ice King.
%% ** Simon Petrikov, who he once was before the crown, fits as well. He and Marceline have some real awww-inducing interactions.
%% ** This seems to be most of Lemongrab's appeal.
%% ** Princess Bubblegum when she delves into her more scientific side during seasons 3 and 5.
%% * Humphrey, Shakey and Salty from ''WesternAnimation/AlphaAndOmega''.
%% * Tom Chan on ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan''.
%% * Steve Smith from ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad''.
%% * ''[[WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger Ginger]]'', and Macie. Also Hoodsey, Brandon, and Courtney (at times when she's dealing with things the normal less richer people deal with), and Darren.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** Zuko's adorable face + hilarious failed attempts at being social = this trope. Zuko's adorkableness started in season 2 in "Ba Sing Se", particularly his date in ''Tales of Ba Sing Se''. [[http://piandao.org/screencaps/ep35/ep35-1079.png Exhibit A.]] His {{Fan Nickname}}s are "Zudork", "Dorko", and "Failko", and that encapsulates his attempts at being normal. Poor guy ''really'' CannotTellAJoke. It's rather funny and odd because he spends most of the time being a no-nonsense warrior, WisePrince and [[{{Determinator}} stern pursuer]]. But when he's forced to be social, he fails hilariously.
--->'''Zuko:''' ''(after months of trying to capture or kill Aang, wishing to now join the group and teach Aang firebending)'' Hello, Zuko here. But I guess you probably already know me, sort of. Uh, so, the thing is I have a lot of Firebending experience and I'm considered to be pretty good at it. Well you've seen me... you know when I was attacking you? Uh, yeah, I guess I should apologize for that, but anyway I'm good now. I mean, I thought I was good before but now I realize I was bad, but anyway... I think it's time I joined your group and taught the Avatar Firebending...
** When Zuko and Mai are together and not fighting, their combined adorkableness reaches critical mass. [[EmotionlessGirl Mai]] [[TheStoic is not]] [[DeadpanSnarker normally very adorkable,]] but around Zuko she gets all giggly and blushy. They express their love in [[IUhYouToo very awkward and adorable ways.]] The B-story in "Nightmares and Daydreams" is a good example.
** The Earth King who is extremely naive for his age since he was kept in the palace his entire life while EvilChancellor Long Feng took care of politics. He is sometimes even called [[FanNickname "King Adorkable."]] Seriously, his pet bear is much more worldly and mature than he is.
** Meng from "The Fortune Teller" is a female example. A young girl with pigtails that defy gravity and a missing front tooth, who believes Aang is her destined lover solely because of his big ears.
** The professor/archaologist Professor Zei from "The Library." Loves his work with a passion, fanboys over Aang not because he's the Avatar but because he is a "living fossil," tries to communicate with Appa (while hushing Momo), admires Won Shi Tong's "foxy assistants" (actual foxes) for being handsome and clever, and can not understand what is so funny about the term "flying buttresses" because he's too busy being genuinely enthusiastic about architecture. He's also almost a PerpetualSmiler in a non-creepy way. Yeah, he lives in his own little world.
** Sokka, on occasion. His moments of over-enthusiasm are the farthest thing from cool, but still endearing in their way.
** Azula of all people has her moments, as her tendency to be perpetually grim and morbid make her extremely socially awkward. Especially evident in "The Beach", where she tries to act normal and socialize at a party.
--->'''Azula''': That's a sharp outfit, Chan. Careful, you could puncture the hull of an empire-class Fire Nation battleship, leaving thousands to drown at sea.
--->[''Awkward Pause'']
--->'''Azula''': ...Because it's so sharp.
--->'''Chan''': Umm, thanks...
%% ** Aang himself on occasion as well.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'':
** Most of the science types are your classic hot badass types... then you have Hank Pym, who will geekily squee about the science-influenced powers of a guy ''trying to kill him''.
** On the female side of things, there's Wasp, who also happens to be Hank's not-girlfriend. Seriously, she's d'awwww-worthy in most of her scenes.
%% ** Thor, especially when he is interacting with Jane.
%% * Jake, the adorable, messy CloudCuckoolander fox cub from BabarAndTheAdventuresOfBadou.
%% * Star from ''WesternAnimation/{{Balto}}'', voiced by RobbieRist.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' had quite a few. Most of the rogues can fall into this category at some point in their portrayal, and characters like Alfred have their moments. The series is simply full of it. Harley Quinn is probably most notable for being painfully adorkable when she tries to interact with the public after her release from Arkham (short lived), but also good examples are the Ventriloquist, when he's simply being Arnold, and Jervis Tetch, when he's either at war with himself, or prior to his spiral into madness. Tetch in particular, had some incredibly adorable moments of complete social ineptitude in his office; talking to people, especially pretty people was not his forte.
%% * Rocky Ballantine from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanMysteryOfTheBatwoman'' is a female example. Look no further than her mention in DiggingYourselfDeeper.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'':
%% ** Cooper definitely counts; even after he's had a growth spurt he's still a sweet kid with a crush on Gwen.
%% ** Ben Tennyson at times.
%% ** Kevin, more rarely.
%% * Chester from ''WesternAnimation/BeverlyHillsTeens''.
* Olivia Owl is the thick-glasses, lispy kind on ''WesternAnimation/{{Birdz}}''. She's somewhat like an older version of Twist. Plus, her voice actress played [[Anime/SailorMoon another certain nerdy girl who's very cute]].
%% * Shifty Dingo from ''WesternAnimation/BlinkyBill'' who also doubles as a ShrinkingViolet, LovableCoward and TheKlutz.
%% * Tina Belcher of ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers''.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/BrandyAndMrWhiskers'':
%% ** Ed the otter.
%% ** Mr. Whisker.
%%* Nonny of the Nick Jr. show ''WesternAnimation/BubbleGuppies''.
%% * Quite a few characters in ''WesternAnimation/CampLazlo'' are this: including Slinkman, Lumpus, Raj, Clam, Edward, Sampson, Chip and Skip and Lazlo.
* Penny Sanchez from ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone'', with her [[{{Meganekko}} glasses]], studious personality, and an utterly adorable voice courtesy of Hyden Walch. Helps that she is only ten years old, making her even more adorkable.
* Lola from ''WesternAnimation/CharlieAndLola''. She's eccentric, clumsy, and at times rather annoying - but you just gotta love her.
* Jérémie from ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko''. He's got a 99.87 grade average and ungodly computer programming skills, and has worked tirelessly for two years to give Aelita a normal, stable life. So that makes him a colossal nerd, an angel of a love interest, and just downright adorable physically.
* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'':
** In his comfort zone as TheLeader of Sector V, Numbuh One is a calm, collected {{Badass}}. Outside of his comfort zone--i.e. during father-son bonding, or in romantic situations--he is a total nerd.
%% ** Ben/[[spoiler:Father]].
%% ** Numbuh 2
%% ** Numbuh 3 for her cute, ditzy personality.
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'':
** Danny, especially in his human form. Sweet, awkward, shy, clumsy, those wide baby blue eyes, and more. His phantom form in the earlier episodes could count, being nervous and scared when he started out.
%% ** Tucker Foley definitely counts, being the nerdy one.
* Cleveland Jr. from ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'' is tubby, mildly geeky, somewhat naive, sweet, and has an adorable voice. Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson has got range.
* WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}, while she's not shy, is unpopular due to her passive, anti-social and [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] attitude and it somehow makes her more relatable and endearing as a character despite her emotionless personality.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'':
%% ** Dexter
%% ** Mandark.
%% ** Dee Dee also counts.
%% * ''[[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians 101 Dalmatians: The Series]]'':
%% ** Rolly
%% ** Dipstick
%% ** Cadpig.
* ''DocMcstuffins'' gives us Stuffy, the adorably awkward blue dragon voiced by RobbieRist.
%% * Sancho Panda from ''DonCoyoteAndSanchoPanda''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'':
** Doug Funnie. He's a shy, clumsy, awkward young boy with an enormous heart, which makes him adorable.
%% ** Skeeter Valentine.
%% ** Pattie.
%% * Peter Puppy from the cartoon version of ''WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim''.
* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'':
** Ed. He's a lovable oaf with a silly, playful and innocent personality, and has a number of odd obsessions including sci-fi movies and comic books.
** Edd. Everything about him is adorkable. He's cute, geeky, neurotic, endearingly shy, kind, polite, and quite a ShrinkingViolet, especially around girls. And that's why all the girls (In-Universe and out) find him adorable.
** Jimmy being a cute, delicate, accident-prone kid who cries easily and has a lot of Woobie moments.
** Jonny, a weird but good-natured {{Cloudcuckoolander}}. He's especially adorkable when he's interacting with his CompanionCube Plank, a piece of wood who is also his best friend.
** May Kanker, Ed's female counterpart: she's naive, goofy, [[CuteClumsyGirl clumsy,]] UglyCute and the [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold sweetest]] of the three sisters.
%% * Tootie, Cosmo, Timmy, and (sometimes) Wanda in ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents''
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'':
** Meg Griffin because she looks like a geek (she wears glasses), she's called a "wannabee loser", and because of her ButtMonkey status she's constantly picked on and made fun of. You can't help finding her downright Adorkable.
** A parody of Creator/HughGrant, poking fun on his many roles and typecasting: "I'm just so charmingly befuddled."
%% ** Neil.
%% ** Chris in the earlier seasons.
%% ** Brian whenever he acts like a real dog.
%% ** Stewie during his nicer moments in later seasons.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/FanboyAndChumChum'' and Kyle.
%% * Oscar from ''WesternAnimation/FishHooks''.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'':
%% ** Mac, Bloo's socially awkward and warmhearted creator.
%% ** Wilt during his more "awkward" moments.
%% ** Goo because of her crazed imagination.
%% ** GentleGiant Eduardo.
%% * Todd from TheFoxbusters combines this with TheDitz and MinionWithAnFInEvil.
%% * Dexter Douglas from ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}''.
* Phillip J. Fry from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''. Mostly due to his childish nature and his [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} kooky mannerisms]], and he's a [[Franchise/StarTrek Trekkie]]. He's not seen as particularly attractive in-universe, but he manages to date some fairly hot women at times.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/GravedaleHigh'': Max Schneider, Reggie, and especially Cleofatra.
%% * Both Dipper and Mabel in ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''. Mabel especially.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'': Billy and Irwin.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold''.
%% ** Eugene
%% ** Phoebe definitely counts.
%% ** Arnold himself has his moments.
%% * The titular ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' at times. As well as Dib.
%% ** Dib definitely qualifies as this mixed with a BadassLongcoat...in-training, considering he's 12.
%% ** Zim. First episode.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'': Jackie Chan's animated incarnation is a combination of this and BadassNormal. Well, what else would you expect from Creator/JackieChan?
* ''WesternAnimation/JellyJamm'':
** Goomo who is TheHeart and TheKlutz, CryCute with SpeechImpediment and who love nture.
** Mina, a GadgeteerGenius and a JerkWithAHeartOfGold is adorkable often enough as well, especially when her [[NoSocialSkills non-existent social skills]] are brought up.
%% * Jimmy Two Shoes from ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes''.
* ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'':
** Larry. He's sweet, shy, and a bit nerdy.
** Sniz and Fondue. Comic book obsessed buddies who are [[CartoonCreature ferrets (or cats!)]]
** June in the first season. For the rest of the show, the "dork" part was removed but she remained cute as a button.
%% ** Henry borders into this depending on the episode.
%% * Mikey Simon from ''WesternAnimation/KappaMikey''.
* Ron Stoppable, WesternAnimation/KimPossible's best friend/boyfriend, is a huge dork, but his loyalty to Kim and his unabashed optimism make him adorable.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'':
** Bolin. This comes of being a [[ManChild painfully naïve sixteen-year-old boy]] who is spoiled by his older brother, as well as just an [[NiceGuy absolute darlin']] and the team ButtMonkey. His pet [[WeaselMascot fire ferret]] also helps a lot. He's also TheCharmer who clearly succeeds because of his Adorkable nature rather than sex appeal, and to top it all off, he has a CatSmile! He is the fandom's puppy, and can do no wrong in their eyes.
** Tenzin, which is especially funny because he spends most of his appearances being super serious and pretending to not have a sense of humor. And then Korra brings up his romantic past with Lin Beifong. Tenzin's NotSoStoic[=/=]TheComicallySerious moments are largely what contribute to his Adorkable status. A lot of his facial expressions during his NotSoStoic moments wouldn't exactly look out of place on [[{{Keet}} his dad]].
* WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries
** Lilo. She's such a friendly, sweet-natured, but socially awkward girl who has a strange obsession with Elvis and taking photos of fat people, and loves hanging out with her best friend, Stitch, an alien from outer space.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012'':
%% ** Blythe Baxter.
%% ** Sunil Nevla.
%% ** Vinnie Terrio.
%% ** [[ShrinkingViolet Penny Ling]] definitely has her moments too.
%% * Lloyd, Kurt, and Douglas from ''LloydInSpace''
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'':
** Lola Bunny, a bubbly, perky GenkiGirl with a MotorMouth, who takes adorable ditziness to new heights.
%% ** Bugs Bunny.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyB'': Bessie Higgenbottom.
* ''{{WesternAnimation/Motorcity}}'':
** Chuck. He's NonActionGuy, CowardlyLion LARP-er. He's a DoggedNiceGuy to Claire who he has a crush on.
** Dutch, a genius engineer who's also a talented artist. His own crush is on Tennie. He has PostKissCatatonia moments that are particularly adorkable.
%%* WesternAnimation/MrBogus
* Ingrid Giraffe of ''WesternAnimation/MyGymPartnersAMonkey'' may be the tallest in the class but she's shy and tries desperately to fit in with her classmates.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'':
** Jenny whenever she deals with the real human world. Her appearance is quite cute and her insecurities and innocence can be quite endearing.
** Even better, Sheldon. Not only is he a geeky GadgeteerGenius, but he takes no effort into fitting with society due to his awkwardness. He has quite a crush on [[{{Robosexual}} Jenny]], who he is often helpful and sweet to when he gets the chance. It's really hard not to like him.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** Twilight Sparkle is essentially a former shut-in who's just learning how to maintain friendships. Despite this she can still spend days cooped up in her home reading books, and has evinced a tendency toward SuperOCD that [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E3LessonZero borders on the scary]]. It's on full display when we see [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftbdCR6OjQg her dancing skills (or lack thereof)]] at her birthday party in Canterlot, and she takes it UpToEleven when she was a filly, in "The Cutie Mark Chronicles". In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E3CastleManeia "Castle Mane-ia"]], she lays eyes on the library in the castle. She can now squee in three dimensions.
** Twilight's brother Shining Armor was a huge nerd before becoming a guard. When he gets a chance to talk to his crush Cadance for the first time, he manages to croak out a ''very'' awkward "Hello"; Cadance's observation is "Could he be any more adorable?"
** With the release of "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E4LunaEclipsed Luna Eclipsed]]", Princess Luna is adorkable easily, especially with her use of FloweryElizabethanEnglish and some of her other phrases.
--->'''Princess Luna:''' Ha-hah! The fun has been doubled!
** Trixie, ''of [[LargeHam all]] [[{{SmallNameBigEgo}} ponies]]'', turns out to be this once she makes a HeelFaceTurn after her ArtifactOfDoom is removed. It’s also adorable seeing her trip while she runs away.
** Rainbow Dash, PassionateSportsGirl and LovableJock, can be adorkable, particularly when she's fangirling over [[TheAce The Wonderbolts]] and Daring Do, an Indiana Jones Expy. She's even willing to wear a very dorky looking sweater while posing with an owl. She also has some really cute moments with [[CoolBigSis Fluttershy]] like going to see the Butterfly Migration just because Fluttershy asked.
** In addition to being the [[TheCutie regular kind of adorable]], Fluttershy also has her share of adorkable traits as well. Normally she's very well... shy, but if something piques her interest, such as animals, she'll get excited and starts talking your ear off.
%% ** Princess[[BigGood Celestia]] has traits of awkwardness.
%% ** Same thing with Princess Cadance to an extent.
%% ** Adorkableness seems to be a family trait, if Twi's big brother Shining Armor is anything to go by.
%% ** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syusHg6_p2I Brushie brushie]]. NOTE: WeblinksAreNotExamples.
%% ** Derpy Hooves.
%% ** Spitfire and Soarin of the Wonderbolts are this.
%% ** [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Hayseed Tur]][[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyMicroSeries nip Truck]]
%% * The title character of ''NightmareNed''.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/OggyAndTheCockroaches'' has Oggy.
%% * ''OscarsOasis'': Many characters from OscarsOasis fall into this category but Oscar and Harchi stand out in particular.
%% ** Oscar.
%% ** Harchi the hyena also fits the bill rather nicely because he's a derpy as heck.
%% * Trembly Paw from ''WesternAnimation/PawPawBears'', whose also the LovableCoward of the tribe fits this trope nicely.
%% * The title character of ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn''
%% * ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb''
%% ** Lawrence Fletcher
%% ** Phineas
%% ** Ferb
%% ** Candace is that rare big sister example, due to her neurotic ButtMonkey-ness.
%% ** BollywoodNerd Baljeet.
%% ** Carl, and Doofenshmirtz during his saner moments. There's practically no shortage of cute nerdiness in this show!
%%* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'':
%% ** Bubbles.
%% ** Boomer, of The Rowdyruff Boys.
%% ** The Professor.
%% * Roba from ''TheProblemSolverz''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}''
** Mikey's naivety mixed with his LargeHam tendencies make him adorably dorky.
** The Pale Kids are a group of nerdy ten year olds who spend their recesses playing [[BlandNameProduct Daggers & Dragons]] and reading comic books.
** Miss Grotke has many cute, dorky moments throughout the series. It's her over-enthusiasm about everything that really hits it.
** T.J. can be pretty adorkable. His ditzy BookDumb moments, his overly enthusiastic and optimistic nature, and he's got an enormous heart. And he was a ShrinkingViolet in kindergarten! And he's been revealed to be a huge geek when it comes to comics.
** Gus is a shy cutie who doubles as TheWoobie. He's a timid, naive, insecure yet good natured boy.
** Gretchen's pretty adorkable. She's an intelligent, cute, nerdy NiceGirl, with red hair in GirlishPigtails, freckles, buck teeth, and NerdGlasses.
%% * Eileen from ''RegularShow''.
%% * Rocko of ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife''.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}''
%% ** Chuckie Finster.
%% ** Cuckie apparently inherits from his dad
%% ** Cuckie's Dad.
%% ** Stu Pickles.
%% ** Tommy, Phil and Lil also count.
%% * Both Pi and Harvey from ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries''.
%% * Both Scaredy and Dave from ''WesternAnimation/ScaredySquirrel'':
%% ** Scaredy is a geek with OCD.
%% ** Dave is a lovably awkward FatIdiot.
* ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo''.
** Velma. Scooby adores Velma in ''WesternAnimation/APupNamedScoobyDoo''. And who couldn't? She's smart, quiet-spoken, and sweet as all get out.
** Fred Jones has shades of adorkability in ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated''. Particularly his love for traps and the way he acts towards Daphne at times.
%% ** Shaggy.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
%% ** Lisa Simpson
%% ** Milhouse.
%% ** Homer Simpson at times.
%% ** Maggie
%% ** Ralph.
* The title character from ''WesternAnimation/SkippyAdventuresInBushtown'' shows shades of this, but Pos the cameraman possum probably fits the trope even better. In the TitleSequence, Pos is shown trying to film Skippy walking towards him but the he trips walking backwards and falls on his butt so Skippy doesn't bump into him. It's only 1 or 2 seconds long and yet it is completely adorable.
%% * Antoine in ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM''.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':
** Butters. He's so endearing because of how hopelessly naive and innocent he is.
%% ** Kyle can be this when he's not busy going on adventures with his friends or trying to thwart Cartman's evil plans.
* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'':
** Spongebob. An endlessly cheerful, optimistic and kindhearted sea sponge with InnocentBlueEyes.
** Spongebob's loyal friend Patrick also qualifies: he's a chubby, lovable but not very bright pink star who's just as childish and carefree as Spongebob, if not more.
* Rusty from ''WesternAnimation/{{Squidbillies}}'' due to his naive nature. Rusty is the only character who has any sense of consequences or morality and is easily the nicest character on the show.
* Both Virgil and Richie from ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock''. Both are Fanboys of comics, superheroes, zombie movies, and video games, and heavily interested in the sciences.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/StormHawks'' had [[GentleGiant Junko]] and [[CowardlyLion Stork]].
%% * Jimmy Olsen from ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' has been seen as this.
* Octus in his "Newton" disguise and ''WesternAnimation/{{Sym-Bionic Titan}}''. He's nerdy, but also very sweet and often tries to make his girlfriend Kimmy happy. [[GiveGeeksAChance This trait is probably what made her fall for him.]] He also manages to "own" Kimmy's ex without even trying to ("You better watch it or I'll come after you!" [[ComicallyMissingThePoint "Do you want my phone number? It might make it easier to find me?"]]) Jason is also the "gawky nice guy" type.
* ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'':
** While not all [[AdaptationOverdosed iterations]] count, Donatello tends to fall into this category, particularly the [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 2003 show's]] version. Soft spoken and gentle, noticeably awkward and even ''clumsy'' compared to his brothers, and that's not even getting into the TeenGenius bit. Considering that the turtles don't have irises most of the time, the amount of emotion he conveys through his eyes alone is incredible, and can make big-hearted viewers want to hug him.
** The 2012 show has Leonardo take the steed. While still the leader of the group, he also has a fondness for an old Sci-fi show and uses this as his basis of being a leader. And it is ''adorable''. It's approaching ridiculous {{moe}} levels combined with his [[InnocentBlueEyes big blue eyes]] and the expressions he makes.
%% ** Irma Langinstein from the 1987 show.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'':
** Starfire's unfamiliarity with Earth customs and overall naivete makes her adorkable.
%% ** Beast Boy, who is just a big kid.
%% ** Terra, when she 's mostly around Beast Boy.
%% ** Raven when you get past her Kuudere personality.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}}'':
** Tygra, an AlwaysSomeoneBetter [[TheDutifulSon Dutiful Son]] in adulthood, revealed in {{flashback}} as a big-eyed, gawky boy who approaches his junior position on the palace guard with nerdy zeal. The present day Tygra has a [[TheCharmer flirtatious streak]] while his younger self [[GibberishOfLove couldn't even form a coherent sentence]] when he first met Cheetara.
%% ** Lion-O still has shades of this as an adult. Particularly in regards to [[spoiler: Pumyra]].
%% * Otto Osworth from ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad''.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'': Hamton J. Pig.
* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland''
** Cody; just ''try'' to watch "[[PaintballEpisode Paintball Deer Hunter]]" without having [[TheWoobie a sudden urge to pick him up and hug him]]. No wonder Sierra is so obsessed with him.
** While this term is used to describe HoYay between Noah/Cody, the Paris episode proves that Noah on his own certainly counts.
** Beth has many traits of adorkability, especially how awkward she acts when she interacts with the other characters.
%% ** Ezekiel.
%% ** Harold -- [=LeShawna=] thinks of Harold this way.
%% ** Mike.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'':
%% ** Alex.
%% ** Clover, a major ButtMonkey.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'':
%% ** Bulk head who is also from ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime''.
%% ** Wreck-Gar from ''Animated''.
%% * In the ''WesternAnimation/TuffPuppy'' episode "Operation: Happy Birthday" there's a flashback to Kitty's 12th birthday showing she used to wear braces.
%% ** Teen Kitty in "Pup Daddy".
%% * Tino from ''WesternAnimation/TheWeekenders''
%% ** Mordecai has his moments too. Who could forget [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpxUjcCXeIA&feature=related the song?]]
%% * Eliza from ''WesternAnimation/TheWildThornberrys''.
* ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'': Tecna acts like a robot a lot and it's suspected she didn't have any friends or feel emotions before meeting the rest of the Club, as well as her boyfriend, Timmy. No bowtie, but still adorkable, as the pairing is.
%% * Glasses? Bowtie? Complete nerd? Let's see... [[WesternAnimation/WordGirl Tobey McCalister]], anyone?
%% * Walden from ''WesternAnimation/WowWowWubbzy''.
* Both Scott and Kurt in ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men Evolution}}'' have shades of this:
** Scott especially in the episode "Power Surge", where he can't seem to move without tripping, hurting, or humiliating himself.
** For Kurt, there's his playful nature, adorable elf ears, and constant joking, as well as his tendency to make Sci-Fi references with Scott when the two are doing something.
---> '''Scott:''' ''Teleporter to Maximum, Mr Wagner.''
---> '''Kurt:''' Aye Captain!
---> '''Scott:''' ENGAGE! *Both teleport out of scene.*
** Kitty Pryde has them both trumped. Geeky, a little on the clumsy side, and just plain adorable, especially when she's dancing.
* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'':
** Tim Drake as the new Robin in season 2 has his moments, especially when he gets nervous and flustered when put in charge of leading team alpha and his facial expressions to his teammates' antics.
** [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] is this almost from his first appearance, where he clearly just wants to hang out with the Team and be their friend, trying to do everything he can to be nice, friendly and helpful to them. However, since the kids are generally mistrustful of the League (as some of their mentors have been keeping secrets from them), they wind up keeping him at arms length until they find out that he's just a 10 year old kid whose superpowered form happens to look like a 30 something year adult.
%% ** Miss Martian during season 1 is endearingly awkward in her attempts to fit in.
%% ** Robin gets very adorkable around Zatanna.
%% ** Kid Flash.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeamUmizoomi''
** Bot is a lovable demi-klutz RobotBuddy when he's not doing math work.
** And when [=DoorMouse=] chased his cheese in one of the specials, one couldn't help but awww at the cute, little mouse guard.
** Squiddy is just adorkable the way his inventions [[HoistByHisOwnPetard backfire on him]].
