Sometimes, cartoon characters are given large (or small), round/bulging eyes shaped like a geometric sphere or oval, often with tiny little dots for pupils.

Alternatively, if a character with separate eyes has an excited or scared expression, his/her eyes will change into this style.

This trope comes in two forms: one where the the eyes touch on the border between or slightly overlaps and one where the eyes are separate from each other.

Compare ConjoinedEyes, which uses just one eyeball with two pupils.

Not to be confused with WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises.

!!Touching/overlapping eyes:

[[folder: Comic Books, Newspaper Comics and Webcomics ]]

* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' is an example, since he (and most other characters in the strip) has huge eyes.
** Jim Davis always uses this trope on his strips like ''ComicStrip/USAcres''.
** Surprisingly, despite practically being a trademark of Jim Davis, the sphere eyes were gained through ArtEvolution, as the characters originally had normal circle eyes.
* Most characters in ''ComicStrip/{{Heathcliff}}'' have these too.
* Mother Goose, Grimm and Attila in ''ComicStrip/MotherGooseAndGrimm''.
* Opus from ''ComicStrip/BloomCounty''.
** And don't forget Bill the Cat.
* Most of the characters in ''ComicStrip/{{Buckles}}'', such as the title character.
* ''ComicStrip/ShermansLagoon'' is also an example of this.
* The characters in ''ComicStrip/PearlsBeforeSwine'' usually have these too.
* This is also used in ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot''. It was even parodied in one strip where Paige cuts ping-pong balls in half and puts them over her eyes to give the impression that she's not falling asleep in class.
** Exactly the same happens in Calvin & Hobbes, but since the characters are not normally drawn with SphereEyes it looks a bit creepy.
-->'''Calvin:''' ''[wearing the bulging fake eyes]'' ...Or will I look ''too'' interested?
* ''Adam@Home'' is another example.
* ''Citizen Dog'' also uses these eyes.
* A lot of the characters from ''ComicStrip/DogsOfCKennel''.
* Plus, it was used for characters in Creator/MattGroening's comic strip ''ComicStrip/LifeInHell''.
* The Groening-inspired character designs of Creator/IsaacBaranoff's ''ComicBook/{{Horndog}}'' and ''HereWolf''.
* Sergeant Schlock from ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary''. {{Justified|Trope}} as he's a BlobMonster, and the eyes are both discontiguous with the rest of his body, and interchangable.
** Also Uniocs, such as Lt. Ebbirnoth, whose entire head is one giant sphere eye. With ''two'' eyebrows.
* Bob from ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob''
* Some species in ''Webcomic/TheMansionOfE.''

[[folder: Puppet Shows ]]

* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'': Crow has these, which is why he kinda looks a bit like [[TheBraveLittleToaster Lampy]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]

* The ''VideoGame/JakAndDaxter'' games usually have this, but everyone's eyes were significantly smaller in ''VideoGame/JakAndDaxterTheLostFrontier''.
* The Mobian characters in the SonicTheHedgehog series certainly count
* VideoGame/{{Rayman}} and other characters in his series have sphere eyes.
* Present in pretty much any {{Rareware}}-made game you could care to name.
** And by extension, Franchise/DonkeyKong and his pals in Nintendo's post-Rare games.
** {{FurFighters}} on the Dreamcast appeared to be heavily inspired by Rareware's games in both it's gameplay and it's visuals, so many of the characters there, such as Rico and Bungalow, apply.
* Human Peasants (as well as Sheep) in ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'' are rather conspicuous for this, in contrast to most other units whom are modeled with regular eyes.
* ''VideoGame/HeroSmash''
* ''VideoGame/{{Bubsy}}''
* [[CuttheRope Omnom.]]
* Koume and Kotake from ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' games have creepy bulging eyes.

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* Creator/MattGroening uses this trope often by doing this to the majority of characters in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' and ''{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}}''.
* WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants also has huge sphere eyes.
* Most characters in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''.
* In the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon, some of the comic relief/cartoony characters, most notably Sebastian in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' and Mushu in ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'', have sphere eyes.
* Even animal characters in some non-Disney hand-drawn animated films, such as Batty Koda from ''WesternAnimation/FernGully'', have these too.
* Lampy from ''WesternAnimation/TheBraveLittleToaster'', though it is inverted with Toaster and Kirby.
* ''{{Chowder}}''
* [[Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit Roger Rabbit]].
* The main cast of ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales''.
* EekTheCat also has huge eyes, similar to Garfield.
* Human characters in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', if an emotion calls for them.

* ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow''
** ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' has a very similar style.
* ''WesternAnimation/MrBogus''
* Most of the character designs on ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' have this. Of note is the fact that they tried to transition the look over into their live stage show, with... [[UncannyValley unfortunate results.]]

!!Separated eyes:

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* Pokey the horse from ''{{Gumby}}''.
* Many of Seth [=McFarlane=]'s works like ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', and ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'': Their eyes are large ovals but they are not connected together.
* Many of AardmanAnimations' characters.
* Almost everyone in WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' has spherical eyes. Most of them, including all the humans, have the eyes separate from each other, but a few (including Bloo, Coco, and Cheese) have connected eyes.
* The Watterson family in ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' have unconnected eyes. In the first two seasons they switched between ovular and spherical depending on the expression. From the third season on, they're always spherical.
