%%% NOTE: Put examples in ABC order...please don't scramble entries, please.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/AaahhRealMonsters'' had Ickis.
%% * Socrates from ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresFromTheBookOfVirtues''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'':
** Jimmy is the franchise's adorable boy genius. This was especially evident in the shorts, movie and season one where he was a lot more shy, clumsy, awkward and naive. This is why he gets a lot of attention from girls both in-universe and in fandom.
** Brittany Tenelli. She's ditzy, off-the-wall and as sweet as a jellybean. She's also the funniest one of the group, although she usually doesn't mean to be. Brittany is also easily confused because she's often lost in her own little bubble. More of her adorable moments include her giggling and trying to flirt with Nick.
** Cindy often acts shy and sweet around Jimmy when she's trying to flirt with him. She also acted like this towards Nick in the movie and early episodes.
** Jimmy's two best friends, Carl and Sheen. They are both just as geeky as Jimmy, through neither of them is nearly as bright as him. Carl is a LovableCoward who is obsessed with llamas while Sheen is a {{Keet}} who is obsessed with the comic book Ultra Lord.
%% * ''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. Although this fascination with Won Shi Tong's library [[spoiler: ends up getting him killed]].
%%** Aang on occasion. He is very playful, and is adorable. Be careful if he is on his avatar state, though.
%% ** Sokka, on occasion. His moments of over-enthusiasm are the farthest thing from cool, but still endearing in their way.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'':
** 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 Creator/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 ''MLP:FIM''[='=]s 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/TheBrakShow'' has Brak, who is a naive and somewhat gullible cat-like alien creature who constantly breaks out into an impromptu song. His "friend", Zorak, takes advantage of his naivety for his own amusement at times.
%% * ''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, Raj, Clam, Edward, Samson, Chip and Skip and Lazlo. Dave also has shades of this.
* ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone'':
** Penny Sanchez 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.
** Rudy Tabootie is also pretty adorkable. He's a little shy and awkward, an absolute sweetheart, and acts dorky around his crushes (such as Penny and Trina from "The Crush"). The fact that he has buckteeth and big ears just add to his dorky cuteness.
* 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.
** Numbuh 3 for her cute, ditzy personality. She also acts like a little girl, and is AsianAndNerdy as well.
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', 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.
* Cleveland Jr. from ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'' is tubby, mildly geeky, somewhat naive, sweet, and has an adorable voice. Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson has got range.
* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'':
** Dexter, being the ChildProdigy he is. He is also socially awkward and incredibly nerdy.
** Dee Dee also counts. She is an enthusiastic and bubbly GenkiGirl who loves ponies and everything girly.
%% * ''[[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians 101 Dalmatians: The Series]]'':
%% ** Rolly
%% ** Dipstick
%% ** Cadpig.
* ''WesternAnimation/DocMcstuffins'' gives us Stuffy, the adorably awkward blue dragon voiced by Creator/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/DuckTales1987'': Launchpad [=McQuack=] is somewhat awkward and accident-prone, and also boundlessly enthusiastic and good-natured. He's a favorite with a lot of people, in and out of universe.
* ''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.
** Eddy can come off as this at times, especially when he gets tongue tied over Nazz.
** 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.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'':
** Timmy Turner himself is a cute little boy who loves comic books and video games. He also isn't very popular at school and is shown to be quite witty from time to time. His big tooth also helps.
** Cosmo (particularly in early seasons) is a goofy and [[TheDitz ditzy]] guy who nonetheless loves his godson and wife... he just has a weird way of showing it.
** Tootie, Timmy's StalkerWithACrush manages to be this - she wears huge NerdGlasses, has braces and absolutely loves Timmy. Also, despite the fact that she tends to be annoying and creepy (not to mention that Vicky, Timmy's evil babysitter, is her [[BigBrotherBully older sister]]), she is mostly just a friendly, cheerful girl.
* ''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."
%% * ''WesternAnimation/FanboyAndChumChum'' and Kyle.
%% * Oscar from ''WesternAnimation/FishHooks''.
* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'':
** Mac, Bloo's socially awkward, warmhearted, and [[AdorablyPrecociousChild adorably precocious]] creator.
** Wilt, thanks to [[NiceGuy his heart of gold]], but especially during his more "awkward" moments.
** Goo is a silly, talkative, and sweet natured MsImagination.
%% ** GentleGiant Eduardo.
%% * Todd from TheFoxbusters combines this with TheDitz and MinionWithAnFInEvil.
%% * Dexter Douglas from ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'':
** Phillip J. Fry, 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.
** Kif Kroker, Zapp's meeker, smarter alien assistant, who tends to be a nervous ExtremeDoormat and becomes painfully shy when he's around his love interest, Amy.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/GravedaleHigh'': Max Schneider, Reggie, and especially Cleofatra.
* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'':
** Dipper is an "awkward and sweaty" pre-teen who is absolutely ''horrible'' at interacting with people (to the point where he has to make a list when wanting to speak to his crush) - however, this makes him a very endearing character, along with the fact that he'll do just about anything to impress people and make his twin sister happy.
** Pacifica Northwest. She's had such a controlled upbringing, so governed by others, her parents especially, that she really has no idea what to make of social situations on her own and appears to be naive to things as basic as sharing. Because of this, not only does she get along very well with Dipper, but it can be downright entertaining to see him trying to look cool in front of her.
---> '''Pacifica''': "Wait, leaving already? You're at the world's best party, dummy."
---> '''Dipper''': "I'd love to stay, but I've got a [[ItMakesSenseInContext category ten ghost]] to depose of." *walks right into a pillar, but makes a quick recovery* "Ehehe. Category ten."
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'':
** Jeff the Spider, a GiantSpider with a sweet heart of gold and no desire beyond [[WellDoneSonGuy to be loved by his adopted father]], Billy.
** Billy is a goofy [[TheDitz Ditz]] who (by his own admission) [[AllLovingHero loves everything]] (except clowns). It's sometimes offset by his many [[GrossUpCloseUp Gross Up Close Ups]], and it's definitely more evident in earlier episodes; nevertheless, he's especially lovable when eagerly getting along with Mandy and Grim.
** His cousin Nergal Jr. is practically ''infamous'' for it. He is a CreepyChild, but that doesn't stop him from being a NiceGuy or an [[CuteMonsterGirl adorable demon spawn]]. He's also TheWoobie, since everyone else thinks LonersAreFreaks.
** [[BlackandNerdy Irwin]], who also doubles as a [[CuteMonsterGirl Cute Monster Boy]]. He's a NonActionGuy and TheChewToy, and is usually a NiceGuy (particularly of the [[DoggedNiceGuy dogged]] variety). Like Junior, he also comes off as TheWoobie due to his relentless suffering.
** General Skarr happens to count as well due to gardening most of the time or just being a ButtMonkey. he also his the same dorky traits as his Evil Con Carne counterpart.
%%% if you add context, please fix also example indentation. thanks!
* ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBeaks'' has a lot of such characters.
** The eponymous character. He's a such meek, friendly NiceGuy and a very sweet child who gets along with nearly everyone. It's hard not to find him cute when you combine that with his huggable appearance.
** Claire is a shy and nerdy little girl who loves anime and has a ''huge'' crush on [[WildChild Foo]], often drawing her and Foo together in an anime style.
** Piri Piri an extremely sweet and idealistic daydreamer who loves to make art. She's also an immense CloudCuckoolander (she says her art is inspired by her dreams) and is revealed to have feelings for Harvey in "Secret Gordon". Even her voice is adorable!
** Harvey probably gets his {{adorkable}} nature from his dad Irving, who is shy, sensitive, and a bit of a klutz, but also a very kind and loving father and husband.
* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold''.
** Eugene. He may be TheChewToy, but his optimistic personality no doubt makes him endearing.
** Phoebe definitely counts. AsianAndNerdy, cute, very nice and very intelligent.
* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'': Dib. His little dance with GIR near the end of "The Frycook What Came From All That Space" comes to mind. Also, this exchange.
-->'''Zim''': "Your loony "PARA-CHUTING" powers don't scare me, Dib. All it does is make you look stupid!"
-->'''Dib''': "It's para-NORMAL, and you're wrong, it makes me look cool!"
%% * ''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'':
** [[TheHeart Moral center]] Goomo is [[TheKlutz a bit clumsy]], [[CryCute cries cutely]], has a SpeechImpediment and an eye for nature.
** GadgeteerGenius and JerkWithAHeartOfGold Mina is adorkable often enough as well, especially when her [[NoSocialSkills non-existent social skills]] are brought up.
* The titular ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' is perpetually cheerful, optimistic, very naïve [[DependingOnTheWriter (though sometimes he's just flat-out dumb)]], and always trying to befriend everybody he meets.
* ''WesternAnimation/JungleBook'': [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4dimam Tabaqui]] from the 2012 DQ Entertainment CGI version of the Jungle Book. Despite being a ManipulativeBastard and a SmugSnake, his nervous and cowardly nature make him a goldmine of cute, comedic moments. He's also a total IneffectualSympatheticVillain compared to the rest of the antagonists that Mowgli faces.
* ''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''.
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'': Kim's best friend/boyfriend Ron Stoppable 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]].
** Opal Beifong from Season 3 is a shy, sheltered girl who blushes and stumbles her way through her introductions when Team Avatar arrives in Zaofu. Naturally [[BirdsOfAFeather she and Bolin quickly bond with one another]].
* ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'' has 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, the [[LovableCoward cowardly]] but [[NiceGuy polite and mild-mannered]] aspiring magician with thick Indian accent.
%% ** Vinnie Terrio.
%% ** [[ShrinkingViolet Penny Ling]] definitely has her moments too.
** Russell Ferguson, as he is TheSmartGuy of the pets. He is also a ScheduleFanatic with a case of SuperOCD.
%% ** Pepper Clark, her [[PluckyComicRelief Fun-loving]] personality can make her this.
%% * Lloyd, Kurt, and Douglas from ''WesternAnimation/LloydInSpace''
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'':
** Lola Bunny, a bubbly, perky GenkiGirl with a MotorMouth, who takes adorable ditziness to new heights.
** Porky Pig. They used a more appealing design than his classic appearance, in part because they knew they'd be depicting him as shy, lonely, frequently depressed and generally taken for granted.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse'':
** Lincoln Loud for his savvy and plucky personality. His freckles, white hair and prominent chipped tooth just add to it.
** Luan, who has [[TheTrickster penchant for practical jokes]], and wears braces to boot.
** Lynn for her energetic demeanor and [[PassionateSportsGirl love of sports]].
** [[ChildProdigy Lisa]] for her messy hair, [[NerdGlasses large glasses]], saggy clothes and her lisp when she talks.
** Leni for being a sweet and ditzy DumbBlonde. Especially when she's confused in a situation or when she's giggling.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyB'': Bessie Higgenbottom, the main protagonist. She is mostly friendly, incredibly geeky, wears big NerdGlasses and has a pretty cute lispy voice.
* Pretty much everyone in ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' is this, especially our two main characters Marinette and Adrien.
* ''{{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
* ''WesternAnimation/MyGymPartnersAMonkey'': Ingrid Giraffe 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.
** 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.
** Seems to run in the family: 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 a cute dork 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. She can even be adorkable when she's not fangirling in episodes like Flight to the Finish. [[http://i.imgur.com/8yOzhWg.png Like this]].
--->'''Rainbow Dash:''' Aww... get to the nitty-gritty later! Tell 'em the important stuff! Like, who's the coach?! *blows whistle* That's right, ME!
** 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.
** Even Rarity at times. She prides herself on gems and fashion and possesses vast knowledge about both (in the former's case, her cutie mark is three diamonds). She even wears glasses sometimes while making dresses.
%% ** Derpy Hooves. With her cross-eyes and her [[TheDitz ditzy personality]].
%% ** Spitfire and Soarin of the Wonderbolts are this.
%% ** [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Hayseed Tur]][[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyMicroSeries nip Truck]]
%% * The title character of ''NightmareNed''.
* ''WesternAnimation/OggyAndTheCockroaches'': Oggy. Besides being an expy of [[WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry Tom]], he often keeps trying, and failing to capture the roaches, and he is the biggest Buttmonkey of the show.
%% * WesternAnimationis'': 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.
* Kowalski from WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar. He is a nerdy and highly intelligent penguin who is obsessed with science and reacts with almost child-like glee whenever something sparks his interest. He also has an unrequited crush on a dolphin named Doris.
%% * The title character of ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn''
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'':
** The titular charaters. They're [[{{Keet}} always happy]] (especially Phineas), and they [[{{Determinator}} never give up]].
** Candace is that rare big sister example, due to her neurotic ButtMonkey-ness. She also Squee a lot, tries to get her brothers in trouble, and fails miserably.
** Doofenshmirtz. There's practically no shortage of cute nerdiness in this show! He has a miserable childhood, his adulthood is not much better, and it's possible if he is a misunderstood individual or not.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'':
** Bubbles. Her playful, naive, and childish attitude as well as the love for stuffed animals qualify her for this. She is the sweetest of the girls, and would never want to do anything bad for a person in need. It helps that she's probably the youngest of the trio.
** The Professor. He would cause accidents, and is clumsy, but is also sweet, and there are times where he can ''really'' care for his children.
** Blossom. She is intelligent and looks absolutely cute. In her spare time she likes reading.
* ''WesternAnimation/RandyCunninghamNinthGradeNinja'':
** The title character tries to be cool, but he's such a goof that he comes off as charmingly quirky.
** Julian. He's the [[PerkyGoth perkiest of goths]], to the point where it could put WesternAnimation/RubyGloom to shame; he's eccentric and an aspiring magician; he has CuteLittleFangs; and he has a soft, sort of creepy yet adorably shy voice (courtesy of Creator/DeeBradleyBaker). All of this bundled into a very cute, friendly, likable character.
%% ** All of Der Monster Club could qualify. And Howard, when he's not being a jerk.
* ''WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo'':
** The series star, Jet. With his LargeHam tendencies and naivety about "Earthie" culture, it's impossible not to love him.
** Jet's dad also qualifies. He is a BumblingDad, but he is lovable nonetheless, especially since he cooks many odd Bortronian foods throughout the series.
** Sean. He is an intelligent, cute, yet easily nervous BrokenBird with YouthfulFreckles
** Even Mitchell can be this when he's not being a JerkAss, especially in the episode "Solar-System Bake Off!", where he acts socially awkward around Jet and his friends when he is trying to gather information about their entry, [[ToyShip especially Mindy]].
* ''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 ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow''.
* WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty has Morty. His good-nature, stutter, attempts at making conversation with girls and the fact that he's mentioned to have some kind of ambiguous learning difficulty make him adorably sweet.
%% * Rocko of ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}''
** Chuckie Finster, a nervous, awkward kid with a heart of gold.
** Chuckie apparently inherits from his dad, Chaz, who is equally neurotic and good-natured.
** Stu Pickles, an inventor who is bumbling. He also can be childish at times, such as in "A Tale Of Two Puppies", when he begs Didi to get a puppy.
* ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries'': Harvey. Unlike the live-action sitcom where he was a popular jock, here Harvey is a cute but nerdy weirdo… who has girls fighting over him anyway, including AlphaBitch Gem.
%% * 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.
%% ** Fred in ''WesternAnimation/WhatsNewScoobyDoo'' as well. Especially when he's prone to MyHovercraftisFullofEels.
%% ** Shaggy.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** Lisa Simpson, as smart as she is, is still a little girl, so she does have her moments of adorable dorkiness. She really loves her Malibu Stacy doll and on her Christmas list, she listed "pony" over and over again.
** Milhouse has NerdGlasses and is a naive, socially awkward boy who suffers some of the worst luck out of all charaters. Not to mention about his crush on Lisa Simpson.
** Homer Simpson at times, at least when not being a complete jerk. He's awkward, not that smart, but his goofiness and love for Marge make him lovable. Also, just look at him when he was a child.
** Ralph is an oblivious and innocent kid with a huge imagination who tends to make weird and inappropriate comments all the time. Despite his frequently stupid and odd behaviour, his father adores him.
* 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 .
** Cartman, as evil as he is, is still a little boy, so he would often play with his dolls, and acts like a little girl, on occasions.
* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants''
** Spongebob. An endlessly cheerful, optimistic and kindhearted sea sponge with InnocentBlueEyes.
** His cousin, Stanley S. [=SquarePants=], is a self-conscious [[TheKlutz Klutz]] who geeks out at the chance to take photos with some of the Krusty Krab's customers while working as a cashier, and is voiced by Creator/ChristopherGuest to boot.
** Spongebob's loyal friend Patrick is a chubby, lovable but not very bright pink starfish 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.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'':
** Star is a GenkiGirl fascinated by every little Earth thing she comes across.
** Marco is a safety-minded fellow with girl-communicating troubles and a longing to be seen as a "misunderstood bad boy".
* 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/StevenUniverse'':
** Steven is an enthusiastic, dorky kid who is awkward about introducing himself to Connie, gets really worked up about things like birthdays or breakfasts, and will adopt as his new best friend and/or beloved child virtually anything that sits still long enough, even acid-spewing bug monsters or fully-grown lions.
** Connie is very shy and self-doubting, but after meeting Steven, she shows a much more vibrant and energetic side around him. She discusses her favorite books with glee and shows an absolutely ''adorable'' eagerness to join Steven in his adventures.
** Despite being a villain, [[spoiler:Peridot]] gets in on this quite a bit, with her overall immaturity, high-pitched voice, and tendency to squeak when startled. After Steven lightly taunts her in a confrontation, complete with EyelidPullTaunt, she can be seen mimicking both the taunt and his preceding smug expression later in that episode. Doesn't help that in most of her appearances, she's [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain not that big of a threat]]. [[spoiler:Cranked up in "Catch and Release", when it turns out that without her limb enhancers she's no larger than Steven and even nerdier than anyone had ever suspected, pulling off stunts like slap-fighting with Steven and [[https://38.media.tumblr.com/b12487cc9fb733fdb237bb2c2368d3db/tumblr_nv7go8ftmp1qhe6cpo7_r1_250.gif attempting unsuccessfully to flush herself down the toilet to escape]]...and then again in "Log Date 7 15 2", where she explores life on Earth by getting obsessed with a Canadian teen drama, donning GoofyPrintUnderwear, learning how to tell jokes, and gloating over how impressed everyone will be by the paint-can stilts Steven gave her.]]
%% * ''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/SymBionicTitan''. 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.
* ''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]].
* ''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 the PluckyComicRelief of the group. His infatuation with Terr and his love of tofu and video games makes him adorkable. .
%% ** 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]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'' has Otto Osworth, bespectacled sweetheart who seriously nerds out over history.
* ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'': Hamton is rather likable due to his nervous and easygoing personality.
* ''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.
** ''Pahkitew Island'' brings us Max, the aspiring supervillain whose attempts at being evil always backfire. He's later revealed to have a soft spot for kids, and states that he never spent his life being social.
** The same season brings us Dave, a hypochondriac who often freaks out when he gets remotely dirty and has a tendency to get himself in awkward situations, such as accidentally kissing a bat on the lips, climbing out a confessional toilet, and accidentally telling Sky he's glad she was stung by bees instead of him (believing he's allergic to bee stings).
%% ** Ezekiel.
%% ** Harold -- [=LeShawna=] thinks of Harold this way.
%% ** Mike.
* The SpinOff of ''Total Drama Island'' ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaPresentsTheRidonculousRace'' gives us the Father and Son team:
** Junior's attempts to show how much of a "man" he is can come off as a cute dork.
** Dwayne's attempts to be cool with the younger and hipper contestants come off as endearingly awkward.
* ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'': Alex is a cute sporty girl, sometimes awkward and ditzy, and very friendly.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'':
%% ** Bulk head who is also from ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime''.
%% ** Wreck-Gar from ''Animated''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Trollz}}'':
** Amethyst is the group's clumsy, loyal and all around adorable protagonist.
** Topaz's ditzy, sweet, space cadet nature makes her a perfect fit. She is also easily confused, due to her head always being in the clouds. This is especially evident when she starts to CryCute.
** Sapphire is the group's {{Meganekko}} bookworm. She is smart, ambitious, overly analytical and awkward with boys.
%% * 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".
* ''WesternAnimation/{{VeggieTales}}'':
** Larry the Cucumber is a lovable {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.
** Larry's girlfriend Petunia Rhubarb is a cute and dorky GenkiGirl.
%% * Tino from ''WesternAnimation/TheWeekenders''
%% ** Mordecai has his moments too. Who could forget [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpxUjcCXeIA&feature=related the song?]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/WeBareBears'':
** Panda who is emotional, worried about not getting a girlfriend and not as social a his brothers and he's also an {{Otaku}}.

* ''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]].
%% * Walden from ''WesternAnimation/WowWowWubbzy''.
* ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'':
** 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.
