[[caption-width-right:348:[[DeliciousDistraction Mmm, topography]].]]


A sugar bowl is a setting in a story that is lively and happy and where bad events rarely, if ever, happen. Any place with [[CloseKnitCommunity friendly locals (human or not)]], [[SceneryPorn idyllic landscapes]], [[{{Arcadia}} rustic yet hygienic towns]], and NoPoverty is likely a Sugar Bowl.

There is NoAntagonist. The only villians here are {{Harmless Villain}}s. Sometimes you can have a sweet setting with [[VileVillainSaccharineShow unexpectedly creepy and/or evil bad guys]], but even in that case, the kind of permanent damage they can do is likely minor. Expect a HeelFaceTurn via CareBearStare and/or DefeatMeansFriendship.

They're often intended to be a {{Utopia}}, [[BellisariosMaxim so don't worry about the details.]]

Be advised that proximity to, prolonged stays within, or merely entering such places may [[FisherKingdom "naturalize" you into a local in body and/or mind]].

Compare with: LevelAte, which covers settings that are ''literally'' made out of sugar. Contrast with CrapsackWorld, the MirrorUniverse of this trope. CrapsaccharineWorld ''appears'' to be this, but turns out to be CrapsackWorld. Also, SugarApocalypse, where bad things happen to good universes. Not to be confused with TastesLikeDiabetes, which is a ''reaction.''

[[SugarWiki We have one of these.]] See the SelfDemonstratingArticle for SelfDemonstrating/SugarBowl for an in-character description.

NotToBeConfusedWith the MacGuffin in ''Literature/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'', or the hangout spot in the ''Arthur'' series (the animated TV show, not the films), or with the UsefulNotes/CollegiateAmericanFootball [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sugar_Bowl game]] held annually in [[TheBigEasy New Orleans]] on or around January 1st or The Super Bowl, or with the California ski resort of the same name, or with a two-handled porcelain bowl sitting on a dining table that contains granulated sucrose.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
%%* Tomoeda in ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' qualifies.
* Flognarde in ''DogDays'', mostly trusting [[LittleBitBeastly Kemonomimis]], [[FriendlyWar war is a sporting event]] [[WarForFunAndProfit important for the country's inner workings]] and overall is [[TastesLikeDiabetes a fluffy fantasy world]]. Invoked that it was KEPT that way, and not [[DarkAndTroubledPast without effort by the inhabitants themselves when]] TheCorruption strikes occasionally. (Said war is used as LevelGrinding method).
* The Wonder Planet in ''Anime/FushigiboshiNoFutagoHime''. About the worst thing that can happen is hurting someone's feelings. [[spoiler:Takes a darker turn when [[DespairEventHorizon terrible amounts of despair]] end up fueling an EldritchAbomination to the point where it is able to slowly strangle that world to death.]]
* Jewel Land from ''Franchise/{{Jewelpet}}'' is very much a sugar bowl. The most evil thing imaginable in the series, Dark Magic, tends to be locked away somewhere, or be extremely weak in the face of Jewel Magic. Provided it's kept at bay, virtually nothing bad happens.
* Many of the later ''Anime/PrettyCure'' movies involve the heroes having adventures in various Sugar Bowls. In addition to that, the alternate worlds that the girls have to save in each season are inhabited by {{ridiculously cute critter}}s.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* The French comic series ''Les Womoks'', a sci-fi parody series about a bunch of sub-par space troopers, features the Albon, an alien Sugar Bowl civilization of {{Ridiculously Cute Critter}}s. They seldom come out of encounters with the Womoks without getting the business end of an explosion, yet somehow never lose their ludicrously optimistic view of life, even after their world gets invaded by the setting's ProudWarriorRace bad guys. And after their homeworld gets blown to pieces in the following liberation? They happily live on the resulting FloatingContinent Islands, happily enjoying the view.
* In the [[FrancoBelgianComics Belgian comic]] ''[[http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olivier_Rameau Olivier Rameau]]'', the DreamLand setting of Rêverose ("Pink Dream") is very much this; a happy and fantastic place "strictly forbidden to boring people". It isn't entirely devoid of a dark side, though, as some places are governed by nightmares. Nor it is entirely childish, as evidenced by [[InnocentFanserviceGirl Colombe Tiredaile]], the hero's LoveInterest, who has since become quite the sex symbol, thanks to the cartoonist Dany not being shy about drawing her rather au natural.
* The Smurf Village in ''ComicBook/TheSmurfs'' started off as {{Mordor}} in the ''JohanAndPeewit'' comic book story ''The Flute with Six Holes'' (later renamed ''The Smurfs and the Magic Flute''), located in what was called The Cursed Land. When the Smurfs got their own series, the village was relocated to a flourishing animal-filled forest until eventually it became a Sugar Bowl.
* ''ComicBook/WidgeyQButterfluff'' is a DeconstructiveParody of shows like this, where the attempts by Widgey and her friends to deal with VerySpecialEpisode fodder like adolescence and [[GRatedDrug G-rated drug addiction]] tend to end in surreal disaster.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* While theoretically set in our world, ''ComicStrip/RoseIsRose'' is constantly on the brink of this.
* ''ComicStrip/LoveIs'': 'Nuff said.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''FanFic/CrownsOfTheKingdom'' has the "It's a Small World" ride.
* The Smurf Village in ''Fanfic/EmpathTheLuckiestSmurf'', though with less sugar than its mainstream media counterpart. In fact, the Psyche Master sees it as more of a WretchedHive, hence the creation of his emotionless and pleasureless race, the Psyches.
* Unicornicopia from ''Fanfic/MyLittleUnicorn'', with its population of winged unicorns and places named after colors.
* ''WebAnimation/TurnaboutStorm'': As far as [[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix]] is concerned, he is stuck in one; the colorful equine filled [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Equestria]]. As far as ''Equestria's'' concerned however, the real one is overseas; a land where ponies and humans coexist.
* Chapter 59 of ''FanFic/YouGotHaruhiRolled'' deliberately makes the setting of ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' into this trope, as a parody of how FourKidsEntertainment would have treated the show had it gotten its hands on it. Haruhi's powers are reimagined as the power of [[Memes/SpongeBobSquarePants imagination]], and everyone else in the SOS Brigade is only there to learn about the true meaning of friendship from her. Taniguchi is chaste and SickeninglySweethearts with Ryouko, and even the Anti-SOS Brigade is nice.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* The Smurfs village in the animated movie ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfsAndTheMagicFlute'', in comparison to [[{{Mordor}} how it appeared]] in the original comic book story.
* The ''Sugar Rush'' game in ''Disney/WreckItRalph'', full stop. [[spoiler: [[CrapsaccharineWorld Or so it appears]]...]].
* Pepperland in ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'' (before the Blue Meanies attack) is a more adult version.
* Arguably, the settings Creator/HayaoMiyazaki films like ''Anime/PonyoOnTheCliffByTheSea'' and ''Anime/MyNeighborTotoro'' are in essence this. In one way or another, the world is almost absurdly nice to nice people.
* ''Film/TheLegoMovie'' has Cloud Cuckoo Land, which is a utopian society which is [[ExactlyWhatItsaysOnTheTin exactly what it says on the tin]], being a complete [[Main/CloudCuckooland Cloud Cuckooland]].
* ''WesternAnimation/LegendsOfOzDorothysReturn'' features a land literally made of candy.
* WesternAnimation/BabesInToyland has Toyland, where everything is supposed to appeal to children.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Heartland USA in ''Film/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand'' pretty much fits the bill. But once Mean Mr. Mustard steals the magical instruments, installs evil 24 hour Video Arcades, and puts the ultimate sign of evil... a giant hamburger... atop the town square bandstand, everything goes to heck!
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* ''Literature/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' parodies these quite beautifully with a fictitious novel (or movie if you feel inclined to watch a '''dreadful''' movie like ''A Series of Unfortunate Events''.) called ''The Littlest Elf''. The reader is told constantly that it would be a better idea to read ''The Littlest Elf'' seeing as the book you are reading is unhappy and therefore should not be read by anyone. ''The Littlest Elf'' is a running gag that even comes up in Lemony Snicket's "Biography".
* In ''Literature/{{Hyperion}}'' the Priest's Story combines this with BodyHorror.
* The philosophical novel ''Ishmael'' has a bit where the eponymous [[ItMakesSenseInContext gorilla]] attempts to illustrate his main point by making the case for how a world in which people [[ImAHumanitarian eat other people]] could be one of these.
* The Literature/LandOfOz under Princess Ozma, despite periodic threats from outside and certain parts of Oz of being way out there, generally follows this trope. Only when ruled by Ozma, though. If someone else takes the throne, generally you get a CrapsaccharineWorld (e.g. Jinjur's revolt, the witches running wild).
* For all its attempts at DarkerAndEdgier, ''Literature/TheLookingGlassWars'' really turned [[Literature/AliceInWonderland Wonderland]] into one of these. Its capital city is known as "Wondertropolis", there are foods with names like "Tarty Tarts", and even ''worms'' are known as "gwormmies". Of course, then Redd takes over and the place becomes a CrapsackWorld until Alyss returns to dethrone her.
* In the ''Literature/RainbowMagic'' series, Fairyland is this whenever Jack Frost isn't causing trouble, as is the human world.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Captain Kangaroo's Treasure House.
* The Puppet Land that "Pee-Wee's Playhouse" was set in.
* ''PushingDaisies'': An example that is not a kid's show. To balance it out, we get [[DeadpanSnarker Deadpan Snarkers]] Lily and Emerson, and a whole lot of murder. ''Adorable'' murder.
* ''Series/YoGabbaGabba''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* The work of Music/AdamAndTheCouchPotatoes is very much this, in a good way. The music is full of life and happiness, and very uplifting.
* Aqua's 'Lollipop' has music and lyrics which define this trope. It also helps its genre is a super sugary brand of eurodance.
* Music/KyaryPamyuPamyu's stage persona is very sugary sweet, though with a side of the [[SurrealMusicVideo excessively strange]].
* Music/ThePolyphonicSpree
* ''The Big Rock Candy Mountain,'' a hobo song from TheGreatDepression era, describes a more adult-oriented Sugar Bowl with geographical features like a whiskey lake, fauna like chickens that lay hard-boiled eggs, and flora like cigarette trees.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* ''Literature/TheBible'' has the Garden of Eden. Plenty of food, ''all'' animals are vegetarians (yes, even lions, female mosquitoes, and fleas), no disease, no guilt, and you never die. Also, [[AuthorAppeal everyone is perfectly formed and naked]]. The next world to come will be identical, after this one's inevitable [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt destruction]]. Many Christian offshoots emphasizing [[ApocalypseHow the end of the world]] have a tailor-made second Earth; [[TheFundamentalist fundamentalist sects]] ignore the nudity, while indigenous versions, such as the Ghost Dance, tend to ignore the vegetarianism. Of course, the nudity pretty much ensures the FCC will never have a children's story in Eden.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Puppet Shows]]
* ''Series/BarneyAndFriends'': Wherever Barney the Purple Dinosaur lives.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* In the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' setting ''{{TabletopGame/Planescape}}'', the Outer Plane of Elysium isn't quite this goody-goody, but it's still filled with magical Good-aligned humanimals, brims with bounteous natural beauty, and has an inconvenient habit of turning anyone who stays for more than a week or two into a blissed-out hippie zombie who has completely forgotten why he came there and has no desire ever to leave. This trait is only shared by the planes evil counterpart, the Gray Wastes of Hades, and endless plain of gray dusts. Except that it doesn't make you happy at all. The only reason people don't just lay down and die is that it's futile as most of them are already dead to begin with.
* The Madolche archetype from ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'' is like this. (Although, while these monsters are cute, adorable creatures with a dessert theme, they may not truly be pacifists. A deck that uses them still requires the player to have them battle the other player's monsters.)
** While not quite as cutesy as the Madolche deck, the Naturia archetype is based around adorable cartoon forest life like bugs and flowers.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theater]]
* ''Theatre/BabesInToyland'' in the play and most film adaptations. Operating word being "most"; the late 1980s made-for-TV version featuring a pre-teen Creator/DrewBarrymore and a young KeanuReeves had its horror moments.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Toys]]
* Charm Warp of ''Puzzlebox''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'': In all the worst ways, in Chewbot's Let's Play. [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]] did one too; this one used the "indoctrination" aspect of the trope.
* ''[[BioShockInfinite/BurialAtSea BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea: Episode 2]]'' starts with a leisure stroll down a vibrant and gorgeous esplanade over Seine, Paris, filled with nice, friendly people ([[FriendToAllLivingTHings and a little birdie]]). The game being what it is, [[spoiler:it quickly descends into NightmareFuel]].
* The world of ''{{SugarWiki/Eversion}}'' starts out as one of these. It [[{{DarthWiki/Eversion}} definitely doesn't stay that way, though]].
* Melodia of ''[[Videogame/HarmoKnight HarmoKnight]]'' is this, but in a more [[BandLand musical]] way. Everything is in the shape of notes and instruments, but it just looks ''so happy!'' You could even think that this could basically be a musical [[{{Kirby}} Pop Star]] with more human characters. This place is a musician's dream come true.
* Most ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' games are this sort of world. ''A Wonderful Life'' is a little darker, but only in the fact that it deals more with actual real life issues than the other ones do.
* ''HelloKitty Online'', as it extends the TastesLikeDiabetes Sanrio franchise into the world of {{MMORPG}}s. However, to some players, the fact that ever time you step outside of a town you're surrounded by [[EverythingTryingToKillYou hordes of dangerous, aggressive]] ([[RidiculouslyCuteCritter but still painfully cute]]) animals makes it seem more like a CrapsaccharineWorld. One of the buildings in the first town after the starting town is a giant sugar bowl (another building is a giant teacup).
* ''{{VideoGame/Kirby}}''
** Dreamland, the main setting of the franchise. Its geography is even named after different types of kid's food. And yet there's enough {{Eldritch Abomination}}s around that it gets darn near a CosmicHorrorStory world, even through [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Kirby beats them on a regular basis]]. Although it makes a twisted kind of sense in the end- what better for AlwaysChaoticEvil enemies that [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman even the most pure of heart heroes]] can destroy without raising questions?
** Then they went and made a world out of fabric in ''VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn''. Which also had a LevelAte if you were wondering.
* ''Marvel Land'': World 3.
* ''VideoGame/MySims'' and the sequel ''[=MySims Kingdoms=]'', wherein your job is to make it even ''better''.
* Nippon in ''{{VideoGame/Okami}}'', once the protagonist gets through with it. However, as she finds it, it's a SugarApocalypse.
* ''{{Franchise/Pokemon}}''
** Hoenn, Snap Island even more so.
** Hearthome City in Sinnoh is one of the best examples of this trope, having babies everywhere and a park allowing entry only to cute Pokemon.
** Maybe. As nice as the above-mentioned places are, Hoenn still has its fair share of problems (its villains manage to cause ''[[HarsherInHindsight global warming]]''), and there is a school of thought that some aspects of Hearthome City (much like Sinnoh in general) are not quite what they seem.
** In Kalos ironically the only characters that are actually evil, [[spoiler: want to reset civilization (In a Biblical flood sense) because they think the world has gotten too corrupt]] despite Kalos is not only the most beautiful region, filled with gorgeous scenery, lots and lots of atmospheric cafes filled with friendly people, but also has tons of random people giving the player (A complete stranger) helpful items and advice for no reason other than to be friendly, even the street punks are generally well mannered.
* ''{{VideoGame/Rayman}}'': In the first game, they have a world made [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXMYlNOCTqs&feature=related entirely of musical instruments]], a world [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1WKQXUSnb1M&feature=related based on pencils]] and a final level [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFFWLtnD1T8 made entirely out of candy.]]
* ''StyleSavvy''. You're an up-and-coming designer in the cutthroat fashion industry, struggling to succeed amidst the pettiness, politics, and backstabbing of-- wait, no. Everyone is utterly sweet, polite, and encouraging. You could create the most horrific outfit on the face of the planet, and the worst someone might say to you is that it's not really their style, but thanks so much for your time! The worst possible criticism you can get during a fashion contest is along the lines of "Your outfit didn't fit the theme, but you have potential -- keep trying and your skills will shine through!" No matter how badly you fail a contest, your model will do her best to cheer you up and express her faith that you'll win next time.
* The entire ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'' series could probably qualify. The Mushroom Kingdom is an idyllic land where Toad people romp happily and the only real problem the kingdom ever seems to have is Bowser's penchant for kidnapping the Princess. A problem Mario consistently resolves in short order.
* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' is the best-known, with areas named after donuts, vanilla, chocolate and many cute (though often deadly) creatures.
* Both ''{{Zool}}'' games were actually sponsored by a lollipop sweet manufacturer (Chupa Chups), which [[LevelAte subsequently turned up a lot in the game]], making things even worse.
* VideoGame/TeamFortress2: Apparently this is how [[spoiler:The Pyro]] sees the world. [[spoiler:Melee weapons are lollipops, the other team is cherubs, and fire is rainbows. Ammo crates are presents and Health packs are cakes/cupcakes too.]] Unfortunately, it's a bit of a CrapsaccharineWorld as well- Mayor [[{{Unicorn}} Balloonicorn]][[note]]Mayor? Don't be ridiculous. Were talking about an inflatable unicorn here. He's the Municipal Ombudsman.[[/note]] is an alcoholic with a hair-trigger temper, appears to be in debt, has a bit of a nicotine addiction, and his wife's cheating on him. [[http://store.valvesoftware.com/product.php?i=ATF005T But isn't he the cutest thing ever?]]
** And now with special googles, provided by the same company, that also made Pyro's mask, every class can experience it.
** Let's put it this way: the Pyro appears to have the mind of [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Pinkie Pie]], and many videos edit in her voice or appearance to the Pyro. The Pinkie Pyro. None of it seems incongruous.
* Played for laughs with ''{{VideoGame/Toonstruck}}'s'' Cutopia, ruled by a giant smiley face.
* ''{{VideoGame/Touhou}}'': Once you get past the [[BulletHell customary greeting]], Gensokyo could very well qualify. Nobody ever dies ([[MemeticMutation except that one bat]]), all the notable locals are MoeMoe girls, and whenever something goes horribly wrong, inevitably the {{Miko}} and the CuteWitch save the day and [[DefeatMeansFriendship befriend]] whatever was causing the problem.
** [[SubvertedTrope On the other hand]], most of the {{youkai}} (and possibly some of the [[ImAHumanitarian humans)]] living in [[FantasyKitchenSink Gensoukyou]] are still [[ToServeMan man-eaters]], the humans that do live there are [[TwoDecadesBehind culturally and technologically mostly stuck in the Edo Period of Japan]] beyond the occasional [[SchizoTech firearm or tank]], and that's not the only indication there is of it being a CrapsaccharineWorld... But so far nothing has made it to the screen yet, so... [[ConservationOfDetail Yayifications]]?
* ''Vigilante 8'' on the N64 had a bonus map called ''Super Dreamland 64''.
* Common to the point of cliché in 8-bit and 16-bit platformers, especially those with an ExcusePlot. E.g. ''Zool'', ''James Pond: Robocod'', ''Putty'' and others.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/HelloCthulhu'' is about [[CosmicHorror Lovecraftian horrors]] trapped in Sanrio's Sugar Bowl. Dagon, for example, runs a fish-and-chips shop.
* The below quote from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' is some kind of inversion of this trope: the place Belkar is calling "Happy Fun Sunshine Land" is actually a city where it is not odd to walk down the street carrying a corpse with your dagger still in it. He calls it that because he's feverish and delusional from the Mark of Justice curse, and has no idea what's actually going on. The magical fairy part is the only accurate part.
-->'''Belkar:''' Be very quiet, Mr. Scruffy! If we make any noise, the magical Cart Fairy might not take us on the enchanted trip to Happy Fun Sunshine Land!
* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''
** During the "Dimension of Pain" Saturday story arc, the Dimension of Pain was taken over by a sneaky angel who managed to briefly turn the Dimension of Pain into the Dimension of Fun. The demonic hordes became {{Care Bear|s}} parodies of themselves and the Demon King was turning into [[MisterRogersNeighborhood Mister Rogers]]. Fortunately, Lord Horribus returned from his exile and managed to make the angel Fall and become demonic, allowing the Dimension of Pain to be restored to its original evil. Yay!
** The "Dimension of Lame" is naturally like this, even if it looks more like our world.
--> '''Torg:''' Why the '''[[labelnote:BLEEP]]Yes, the dimension has naturally occurring censor bleeps.[[/labelnote]]''' does it smell like flowers down here?\\
'''Alternate Zoë:''' It's a sewer, silly!
* ''Webcomic/SugarBits'' has Confectionaria, which is exactly what it sounds like.
* ''{{Webcomic/Wuffle}}'', full stop.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''Website/UniCreatures'' is set in one, right down to their being ''no carnivores'' (that big scary lion on fire? He eats fruit.) to avoid the violence and pain of creatures hunting each other.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGummiBears'' may be an exception to this -- or at least not as happy go lucky as the other Disney shows. True, they live in a pretty happy [[MedievalStasis Medieval world]] standard to the trope, but they are the last remnants of their once great race/civilization on Earth (well, the European part of it anyway) with a certain amount of sadness and {{Zeerust}} thrown in as well.
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', which is odd considering that it's AfterTheEnd and there's dangerous monsters everywhere.
* ''WesternAnimation/BarbieAndTheSecretDoor'' has the world Zinnia. It's a magical land full of fairies, unicorns, and mermaids, and its entire color palette is very bright and almost like candy. [[spoiler:This is subverted when Malucia drains the entire land of its magic, though.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/BobTheBuilder'', what elevated this trope to its own rights.
* ''Franchise/CareBears''.
* ''Chorlton and the Wheelies''.
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' has "Gothapalooza" turned into this briefly by one of the Reality Gems. The protagonists were understandably shocked.
* ''Franchise/DisneyFairies'''s Pixie Hollow.
* Dragon Land in ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales''.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheDreamstone'' has the Land Of Dreams, in contrast to the desolate Land Of Nightmares, the former is colorful utopian [[MedievalStatisis Medieval World]]. The majority of it's civilians are perpetually cheerful and sparse on jerkish or cynical traits, usually their only wrathful actions are towards Zordrak and the Urpneys which even then are [[AmusingInjuries rather leniant cartoony punishments]].
* The ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'' appear to inhabit one of these until you [[BloodyHilarious keep]] [[CrossesTheLineTwice watching]].
* "Hello Kitty, Hello Kitty/ we all think you're, very pretty/We all love to, hug and kiss you/ You make boys and girls so happy when they're with you/ Little Twin Stars, are so charming/ And My Melody, is such a darling/ We all love to, come and see you/ ''In the happy little world of Sanrio!''"
* ''Lalaloopsy'' (the TV series) is one of these. The characters are all very friendly and helpful with each other (despite a few times where they don't always help right away), the worst problem seems to be running out of ingredients for each characters' [[TrademarkFavoriteFood favorite food(s)]] or a Little (Sister) getting lost. Everyone leads happy lives in a low-tech setting (they use can-and-string as phones!) with no need for paying back another character's helpful deed or even asking for favors in return for doing the deed. There's no villain and no monsters (except the various Pet animals each character has, but they are always as nice as their owner).
* ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicRoundabout'' would almost certainly count if it weren't for both ''Dougal and the Blue Cat'' and the recent movie
* ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' has a reputation for this. Not entirely undeserved, especially in the [[TastesLikeDiabetes cartoons for the G3/G3.5 toyline]], but the pilot specials, TheMovie, and the original ''My Little Pony and Friends'' show had the ponies frequently dealing with supernatural threats to their peaceful lives, ranging from rampaging monsters to wicked witches to {{Evil Overlord}}s.
** ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' takes place in a world where ponies can move the clouds around to make it rain or shine, and plants and animals need to be ''told'' to grow or hibernate. Thus, [[PaintingTheFrostOnWindows changing seasons is a large community project]]. The inhabitants are so accustomed to this way of life that [[TheLostWoods the Everfree Forest]] - an untamed wilderness where animals take care of themselves, plants grow on their own, and weather occurs independently of pony intervention - is considered [[EldritchLocation spooky and unnatural]]. And again, there are monsters aplenty.
*** Not that Ponyville (or Equestria as a whole) is a paradise on Earth. Plenty of [[FantasticRacism species intolerance]] (the townsponies' reaction to Zecora, the racial conflicts between the three types of ponies depicted in "Hearth's Warming Eve," etc.) and generally bad attitudes (the episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E19PuttingYourHoofDown "Putting Your Hoof Down"]] is chock-full of Ponyville residents acting like real douches) are present. That's not to mention the various monsters that are quite willing to kill anypony they come across (the main protagonist was TakenForGranite offscreen by a random monster in one episode), the occasional but regular nation-/worldwide threats posed by [[MadGod rogue]] [[GodOfEvil gods]] and [[VileVillainSaccharineShow cruel dictators]], and ''[[HellGate the gate to]] [[FireAndBrimstoneHell Tarturus itself]]'' less than a day's trot away.
* Parodied by Meap's home planet on PhineasAndFerb. The Meaps' society is explicitly based on cuteness, and the harshest legal punishment they have is a fifteen minute time out. [[BadassAdorable This does not stop them from having an effective military force]].
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'': Him tricks Bubbles with one of these in "All Chalked Up". Clever -- who would suspect a place like this of secretly being the creation of an evil, manipulative demon?
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/ProjectGeeKeR'': Geeker, Noah, and Lady [=MacBeth=] are chased into a [[AmusementParkOfDoom run-down amusement park]]. They encounter interactive holograms that adapt to the visitor's "play setting" -- with adorably goofy, brightly-colored cartoon bunnies being the default mode. [[spoiler:(That is, until Lady [=MacBeth=]'s short temper triggers their "battle mode".)]]
* ''WesternAnimation/RainbowBrite'': Rainbow Land.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''
** In an early episode, Homer sarcastically evokes this trope in a bitter moment.
-->'''Homer:''' Oh, look at me! I'm making people happy! I'm the Magical Man from Happy-Land, in a gumdrop house on Lollipop Lane!
** ''The Happy Little Elves'', a ShowWithinAShow seen in some early episodes, seemed to be an example of this trope.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs''. Gargamel has only succeeded in making one permanent change to the Smurf Village -- introducing a [[TheSmurfettePrinciple female smurf]].
* Imaginationland from ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' is most definitely this, until [[SugarApocalypse the terrorists broke down the wall that was keeping evil imaginary characters in]]. [[spoiler:It's up to Butters to save the realm from being destroyed.]]
* Strawberryland in ''WesternAnimation/StrawberryShortcake''.
** And Berry Bitty City of ''Berry Bitty Adventures'' is even more so.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' episode [[Recap/TeenTitansS1E6Nevermore "Nevermore"]], between all the nightmarish landscapes that Beast Boy and Cyborg run into is one of these. Complete with floating strawberries. Beast Boy quips, "This must be where air fresheners comes from."
* ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats''
** The Ro-Bear Berbils seems to be space-colonists from the Sugar Bowl. And true to their nature, they've set up a little piece of Sugar Bowl right in the middle of the mutant-infested swampland of Third Earth. A place filled with houses shaped like giant, pink mushrooms, where candy-canes grow in orchards. They also talk like Smurfs, and all have names starting with a B. Isn't that right, Ro-Bear Bill? Berbil-fruit, anyone?
** In the [[ExpandedUniverse ThunderCats UK comic]] we saw that Sugar Bowl was a deliberate choice. They used to be cyborg-Bears rather than cyborg-Teddy-Bears but they are trying to be SpaceAmish while still having the SuperweaponSurprise technology in their underground facilities to rebuild themselves in their spacefaring warlike image (the [=ThunderCat=] they showed the hologram of what they used to look like was impressed enough to instantly agree to help them restore their façade of cute harmlessness).
** In the DarkerAndEdgier ''[=ThunderCats=]: Dogs of War'', they are wiped out by the Lizard Men after welcoming the invaders with flowers. This can probably be seen as trying too hard.
** [[WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011 The new series']] Berbils home is a bit more conservative (though they're are a ''lot'' of pink flowers everywhere).
* From the late 1960s, the Happydiculous World of the UpsyDownsys was definitely this.
* ''Series/WonderShowzen'': Parodied in an animated segment "The Boogie Noogie Bunch".
