He did it! [[AliceAndBob Bob finally asked Alice]], the prettiest girl in school, to the big dance. And she said yes! Just thinking about dancing with her makes his nostrils flare, lips curl, eye lids get puffy and eyes all squinty. While he's a little too happy to notice now, Bob is about to learn very important lesson in life we all have to learn at one time or another: '''Love Can Make You Gonk'''.

Warning signs of a character about become {{Gonk}} with love include [[SayItWithHearts floating hearts]], [[JawDrop dislocated jaw bone]], profuse sweating, panting, [[NoodlePeople noodleing]], [[BlushSticker redness]] of [[LuminescentBlush the face]], and the heart attempting to escape their chest at high velocity. If you or a loved one have become gonk with love, do not be alarmed. These symptoms are often momentary and the affected individual will return to their usual artistic style soon. In extreme cases, it has been known to last for a [[HardWorkMontage full montage]], but will undo itself as the character becomes tired.

* Sanji of ''Franchise/OnePiece'' is rather prone to this unfortunate condition, enough that even his new wanted poster (rather than the previous FacialCompositeFailure) has a picture of him in such a state, which he isn't too thrilled about.
* A very mild PlotDevice in ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins'', as King thinks that Diane would prefer his {{Gonk}}ish human form, rather than his child-like faerie form.
* In ''Manga/{{Gokusen}}'', Kumiko does this when ever she is fawning over Shinohara. Her eyes go from their usual fixed glare to big, sparkly, bishojo-standard and can flick back and forth between panels when the situation calls for it.
* Shuichi of the BoysLove manga, ''Manga/{{Gravitation}}'', does this on the rare occasion when something good happens with Yuki.
* In ''LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokuroChan'', Sakura gets all of the mentioned traits, and even snorts like an aroused stallion.


[[folder: Film ]]

* ''Film/TheMask'': This happens in a scene which pays homage to Creator/TexAvery, with EyePop, JawDrop, [[SayItWithHearts jumping heart]] and eventual wolf-head whistling (that as the Mask hits his own head in praise, even gets mangled with the hat...).


[[folder: Web Comics ]]

* Walky falls prey to this in ''Webcomic/DumbingOfAge'', gaining bug eyes, red cheeks and floaty hearts. He is accompanied by a bar showing [[http://www.dumbingofage.com/2010/comic/book-1/02-uphill-from-here/dexter/ his fall into buffoonery]].

* "[[http://www.collegehumor.com/post/6961926/7-awesome-pickup-lines-i-learned-from-cartoons 7 Awesome Pickup Lines I Learned From Cartoons]]" is another Creator/TexAvery homage.


[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* In old Creator/TexAvery cartoons, men would often bug out and even [[AllMenArePerverts literally turn into wolves]] at the sight of an attractive woman.
* Starfire of the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' cartoon is known to do this when coming across something too cute for words.
