''If it's adorable enough, then it doesn't have to make sense.''

For example, [[WaddlingHead anatomically improbable]] [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter creatures]] can be perfectly justified in [[SugarBowl the right setting]].

Subtrope of RuleOfCool. Compare RuleOfGlamorous, TinyTropes.

Contrast {{Gonk}}, HollywoodHomely (where someone isn't supposed to be cute or beautiful, but is), InformedAttractiveness (where someone is supposed to cute or beautiful, but isn't more than anyone else).
