->''"It's too cute! It's... It's disgusting!"''
-->--'''Plankton''', ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants''

This is an audience reaction to works that are strongly [[LighterAndSofter attempting to be kid-friendly]]-- using almost all the tropes of cuteness and {{idealism|Tropes}}, like there's some kind of checklist. '[[http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/saccharine Saccharine]]' is the watchword. Viewers react to this with anything ranging from cutesy cuddling to violent revulsion. Always, there will be fun, colorful settings, {{Narm}} or generally [[LargeHam hammy voice acting]], [[NeverSayDie an aversion to anything resembling death unless for that one final and dramatic battle]], and [[ThePowerOfFriendship no matter the situation, if you have friends, you will win because you can only win with friends.]] The sun shines a lot, and when it's night, the moon is full and bright. Also, there is smiling. Tons of smiling. Even when it's not appropriate, there is smiling. The BigBad is ObviouslyEvil with no attempt to look otherwise, and flips between being born evil([[VileVillainSaccharineShow maybe even worse]]) or redeemable, [[DependingOnTheWriter depending on the story]].

Keep in mind that [[TropesAreTools levity and sweetness are not necessarily bad]]. With proper usage, it may result in an enjoyable series where the cuteness is somehow justified or just part of the environment. When it monopolizes the series, or puts being adorable ahead of things like actual plots or likeable characters, ''then'' it becomes a problem. Cute in and of itself isn't wrong, but given an audience's general conditioning to the notion that SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids and that RealMenHateSugar (a side effect of [[GirlShowGhetto targeting masculine elements towards women as much as men]]), even this wiki has something of an aversion to cuteness as an entity as the incredibly long list of examples below attest. This cultural reaction is also one of the core reasons why AmericanKirbyIsHardcore.

Not to be confused with SweetTooth or SugarBowl settings in general, as this is an Audience Reaction. Use caution when mixing with {{Gorn}} and CrapsackWorld as {{Grotesque Cute}}ness or {{Wide Eyed Idealis|t}}m may result, respectively. Repeated consumption of this product may result in becoming a GlurgeAddict. Be aware also that excessive cheerfulness can be used to disguise a CrapsaccharineWorld.

See also SuperCuteSuperPowers. Compare with CrapsaccharineWorld and contrast with TestosteronePoisoning, in some ways, the opposite of this.

!!Examples:

[[folder:Advertising]]
* Let's start with the ads for Cuties oranges. Having a little kid narrate the advertisements add about 20% more of this trope.
* Any commercial by the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Foundation_for_a_Better_Life Foundation for a Better Life]], which all feature a completely saccharine skit promoting values like "generosity" and "caring".
* The aggressively adorable kids in the Welch's Grape Juice commercials.
* The aggressively adorable kids in the Bandaid commercials, especially the little black girl.
* [[RuleOfThree The aggressively adorable kids]] in the Motts Juice commercials.
* [[RunningGag The aggressively adorable kids]] in the Wuzzles commercials.
* [[OverlyLongGag The aggressively adorable kids]] in the Denny's 3-Course Meal commercial.
* [[OverusedRunningGag The aggressively adorable kids]] in ads for [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForLittleGirls insurance, cars, and other things kids have no interest in]] as [[{{Moe}} cuteness-appeal for adults.]]
* [[PlayingWithATrope Played with to the point of parody]] in the late 2009-early 2010 radio ads for the New York Lottery's "Sweet Million" game, which feature intentionally tooth-rotting things like kittens that meow "I love you" and puppies that croon barbershop harmonies for little old ladies. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vF6PyIML0hI Television ads]], too. Look at the cute bunnies!
* Any commercial for Snuggle. Goddamn that bear...
** Surgeon General's recommended treatment for this particular case is a dose of ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'''s sketch involving that bear. It's [[BlackComedyRape hilarious]].
** Gen-X might prefer ''Series/TheState'''s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdT8R3TBW8s parody.]]
** Or the ''VideoGame/BattleTanx'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3HXGIFPxbtk version.]]
* All of the [[PreciousPuppy puppy-fueled]] Cottonelle commercials from the last few years, featuring a puppy that sounds like Zach Braff BEING THE CUTEST THING ALIVE OHMYGODOHMYGOD... So you should... buy... TOILET PAPER. Yeah.
* The Pillow Pets commercial. "D'awwwwwwww!" cranked up to 11!!! The similar Happy Nappers commercial is even WORSE!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXMhjM0GZNc Sinupret commercials]]. Ugh.
* [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xariu7_publicite-kinder-chocolat-1993-fran_shortfilms Any commercial for Kinder Chocolate.]] When they're not either the most [[UncannyValley disturbing]] or frightening things you've ever seen.
* [[http://www.retrojunk.com/details_commercial/23223/ This commercial]] for Puppy Chow.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8egB7N86eA FurReal kittens]]. ''Aww...'' *puke*
* During the early [[TheEighties 1980s]], UsefulNotes/WashingtonDC. Creator/{{CBS}} affiliate WDVM (now WUSA) commissioned a tooth-rotting promo using the branding of "Ours to Share." The campaign was basically one they could have gotten away with if it was a smaller city, but certainly not in D.C., as the reaction was harsh enough for WDVM to fire their creative services director as a result. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIUj0J-7kt4 Watch and look for dentures]].
* The commercials for the ''Teddy Ruxpin'' bear are adorable to the point that you'll cry. Case in point: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0sgFxFeuqM]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95zejdL_SQo This commercial]] for the HP Touchsmart 520t. "'Cause, he's ''bacon!''"
* Parodied with [[http://www.retrojunk.com/commercial/show/1390/sprite-sun-fizz a]] Sprite commercial.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffkDRynWAMw Mel the Milkbar]], a new granola-milk bar from Kraft. Adorable, huggable, and [[TheWoobie a MASSIVE woobie.]]
* The commercial for the Lego Duplo Zoo playset, especially when those kids giggle.
* Fairy Liquid adverts from the UK [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bI-uKniXpE]]
* The new Vonage commercial with the puppy. Granted, the puppy was cute, but the neighbors are borderline creepy.
* The commercials for a Brazilian soda called Guarana Dolly, which features a grotesquely cute anthropomorphic bottle of said soda which talks with a baby-like voice.
** Doesn't help that said soda is also very saccharine.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3Z-ePjlvuE Taste it for youself!]]
* The new Fisher-Price commercials.
* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UFUwjvYtsU CuddleUppets]], [=CuddleUppets=], the blankets that are puppets!"
* During the early-1990's, there was a commercial for a mail-order children's construction set called ''Geerios''. The set itself was actually quite nifty. It allowed children to build their own non-motorized mechanical devices (robots, etc.) without parental fear of things like electric shocks. However, the commercial for it was so sickeningly cute that it could put just about any other commercial on this list to shame. The [[HellIsThatNoise most annoying nursery music ever]] played in the background, while some Hallmark-ish woman described the toy, depicting kids innocently playing with it and even parents getting a kick out of it.
* Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} and one of their teen stars, Creator/DaniellaMonet, managed to do this with a product called My Fruity Faces, which are edible stickers of characters from either ''WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer'' or ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'', which are placed on pieces of fruit or vegetables so that kids will be more likely to eat them. These kids happen to be in the demographic for Creator/NickJr and pour on the saccharine.
* The Oreo "Wonderfilled" advertisements. Special mention goes to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDaCU_qD5gk this one]], narrated by a girl wondering if her dad would let her stay up past bedtime if she gave him an Oreo; what really adds to the adorableness is that it's implied that she doesn't ''just'' want to avoid bedtime, [[DaddysGirl but she also wants to spend time with her dad]]. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Awww!]]
* The Zulily commercials, specifically when a nursery rhyme song is sung by a woman in a soft voice.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Creator/ArinaTanemura's works falls into this, possibly due to the art style. As for the stories...not so much. She does some pretty dark stuff before the happy endings including [[spoiler: [[Manga/FullMoonOSagashite a six-year-old boy committing suicide in front of his mother.]]]] Something like that definitely shouldn't taste like diabetes. If anything, Tanemura is more like a Japanese female version of Creator/DonBluth where she does some major [[BreakTheCutie breaking the cutie]] before they [[EarnYourHappyEnding earn their happy endings]].
* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia''
** The [[WholesomeCrossdresser cross dressing]] toddler form of Italy, Chibitalia. Especially while singing "Maru Kaite Chikyuu."
** Also, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWexebzZaE4 episode 22]].
** How about Chibi-USA? He's adorable, isn't he?
** Basically, if they're not a {{bish|onen}}ie-[[MemeticSexGod sex god]], they are the most adorable thing to ever rot you teeth out, ever.
* ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh''
** Chiyo-chan + [[EverythingsBetterWithPenguins penguin suit]]. Or simply Chiyo-chan, period (that song she sings in Episode 1!). It's even pointed out by other characters that it's so cute it breaks your mind.
** o/ Cooking is so fuuuuun, cooking is so fuuuuun o/
** The scene with Marco the kitty is caramelized sugar dipped in a cup of sugar with glaze and powdered sugar on top. [[AnimalsHateHim Poor Sakaki-san]].
** And speaking of Sakaki, that cuddling scene with Maya...
* The main character from ''Because I'm The Goddess''.
* The two sisters Kyou and Asu in ''Manga/BinbouShimaiMonogatari'' are really ''just'' endearing enough to pull off their saccharine sweet interaction, depending on how much sweetness you can take in.
** The level of saccharine is mostly offset by the appearance of the Echigoya sisters. Thank goodness for them!
** Note that this is not the case with the manga, only the anime suffers from this.
* Elizabeth Middleford from ''Manga/BlackButler''
* ''Anime/BottleFairy''. Blargh.
* ''Anime/BinchouTan'' is so cute it hurts.
* Episode 8 of ''Anime/CarnivalPhantasm'' has the scene with Saber giving Shirou a birthday present, the sweetness of the scene is enough to rot your teeth.
* The entirety, and especially the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jq33dzbO840 opening sequence]] of ''Manga/ChisSweetHome''.
* [[BrattyHalfpint Fuko Ibuki]] from ''VisualNovel/{{CLANNAD}}'' when she enters "starfish mode." [[http://cdn.myanimelist.net/images/clubs/3/10949m.jpg This picture]] should ring a bell.
* ''Anime/DogDays''
** So, there's a pink dog-eared princess. Who is also a pop idol songstress. Her country is embroiled in war with a rival nation... where the worst thing that can happen to you is getting turned into an adorable ball of fluff with ears and a tail.
** Bonus points for nearly every character being named after something sweet. Namely, pastries.
* ''Anime/EurekaSeven'''s ending is this in an overly sappy, cutesy way. A ''giant heart gets carved into the moon.''
* ''Anime/ExcelSaga''
** The Puchuus are more likely parodies of this trope, since they're evil, and look like [[Manga/{{Golgo 13}} Duke Togo]] when hit.
** They're also paralyzingly cute in-universe, with Nabeshin and Space Butler unable to resist the cuteness when they're trying to escape a Puchuu spaceship.
** Subverted (Tastes Like Insulin?) with Misaki Matsuya's encounter with one. She is momentarily entranced by a Puchuu, only to suddenly axe it in half, while saying "I don't like cute."
** The same with Excel, except substitute the axe with a karate chop.
-->'''[[RefugeInAudacity Excel]]''': Aw, it's so cute! ''([[CrowningMomentOfFunny punches Puchuu]])'' ''But who the heck cares?!?!?''
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''
** The interactions between [[DotingParent Maes]] [[OverprotectiveDad Hughes]] and [[CheerfulChild Elysia]] (or just Hughes showing off the family pictures) is this in spades, and they even have an ImageSong duet together. [[spoiler:[[TearJerker Tragically,]] this would not last for long with [[DisconnectedByDeath Hughes' murder in a phone booth]] and the [[BreakTheCutie resulting]] [[MeaningfulFuneral funeral.]]]]
** [[BattleCouple Sig and Izumi]] occasionally have [[SickeninglySweethearts moments]] like these in which those nearby are literally pelted with hearts and flowers.
** Being exposed to the sugary images spawned from [[{{LittleMissBadass}} May's]] boy crazy imagination can make you reach for the insulin bottle in shock.
* ''Anime/GalaxyAngel'' is the example that has overused this trope and cut everything uncute out of the show, including the male protagonist.
** Which doesn't even make sense because not only is said male protagonist drawn to look just as cute as the girls, cutting out the romances he shares with the girls actually makes the show LESS cute. But the anime director likely did this for the sake of Pink Bishoujo Ghetto. Blargh indeed.
* ''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}'' features overly cutesy hamsters and saccharine adventures, though it is quite entertaining.
* The title heroine of ''Manga/HayateCrossBlade'' is a BadassAdorable to begin with, but cranks it [[UpToEleven way up]] when she spends the school festival in a [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/hayate_x_blade/v05/c030/17.html duck suit]].
* Franchise/HelloKitty. Pretty much anything from Sanrio or San-X, really.
* ''Manga/HidamariSketch''. The character designs and SliceOfLife situations will have you fearing for your [[MemeticMutation nutbladder]].
* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry''. You know, before all the killing.
** [[VerbalTic Mii]]...[[MostWonderfulSound Nipaa!]]
* ''Franchise/{{Jewelpet}}''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S57RNMGzIOc The intro speaks for itself.]]
* ''Manga/KOn''
** The entire Hirasawa family, with the parents as SickeninglySweethearts and the sisters in a practically similar relationship (minus the LesYay... maybe), your teeth will have rot before Mugi offers any cake.
** Then there are the lyrics Mio wrote, if the reactions of the other club members are any indication.
*** The song in question, Tokimeki Sugar, has been released and is sickeningly sweet.
** Yui's songs might qualify for this trope too, but most of them are more starchy than sweet.
** Azunyan. When she has her cat-ears on, when she calms down for some reason (eating cake or being pet by Yui), etc. It is impossible to not love her.
** Does this series really need examples? Every second of every episode qualifies for this trope really.
* ''Anime/KillLaKill'': [[CuteAndPsycho Nui Harime]], [[TheFashionista the Grand Couturier]], is a parody of this trope. She is a sickeningly cute girl with a sickeningly cute voice and a sickeningly cute demeanor who wears sickeningly cute frilly clothes that make her look like a MagicalGirl. Her actions, however, will make you sick in a whole different way. She keeps up her adorable facade even as she tells the protagonist about how she [[spoiler:murdered her father]].
* ''Manga/KimiNiTodoke'' centers around teenagers who are kind and understand one another. -Gasp-!
* ''Manga/KiniroMosaic'' is very saccharine in a British way, ''especially'' in the first episode when Shinobu first met Alice in England.
* ''Anime/ALittleSnowFairySugar''... the epitome of overly-cutesy MoeMoe if there ever was one.
** The word "sugar" is right there in the name, as is "fairy." That might actually count as a LampshadeHanging.
* ''Manga/LuckyStar''
** Konata's little cousin [[IllGirl Yutaka]] qualifies. From the first moment you see her, she rots your teeth--and as soon as you think it can't get any worse, just wait till you see her interaction with Iwasaki's dog in the {{O|riginalVideoAnimation}}VA.
** Hell, the entire series tastes like diabetes--or more like chocolate cornets.
* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' was like this before the plot showed up five or so episodes in. And then again at several points through the whole series. But special mention should be made of the Vivid manga which takes it UpToEleven.
* Aqua, a minor villain from ''Manga/{{MAR}}'', was so sickeningly adorable that she was [[spoiler:''[[KillTheCutie killed by one of her own allies]]''.]]
* The first 15 minutes of ''Literature/{{Momotaro}}'s Divine Sea Warriors'' is like this. [[MoodWhiplash Then they]] [[KillerRabbit start preparing]] [[WartimeCartoon for war]]...
* ''VisualNovel/NanatsuiroDrops'' is so cute, that just watching 5 seconds of the opening will make your teeth fall out and your eyes pop of SO. MUCH. CUTENESS. Gah
* ''Manga/NonNonBiyori'' has a number of scenes where the characters constantly show how happy they are.
* The whole purpose behind ''NyanpireTheAnimation'' and the original manga [[http://ekladata.com/0qUzJmDhgBJxe7o1Zh3_Lk_ingo.jpg "The Gothic World of Nyanpire".]]
* The OP for ''LightNovel/OreShura'' is a ridiculously cutesy song played over numerous shots of the maximally cute-ified heroines in a bright-pastel-colored world overflowing with cake, candy, and flowers. And, of course, plenty of mild {{fanservice}}. It doesn't get much more sugary than [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvhK1QrzwO8 this.]]
* ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub''. [[http://www.nanoda.com/public/wallpapers/honey-senpai-wallpaper-big.jpg Honey-Sempai]]. Enough said.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Nee-ptoQ4E Oyayubihime Monogatari]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvg6WbZJyiQ its]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hH5HLvzqP0 American]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QoMh0DkXAI counterpart]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCxsu15QAwY EVEN]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5jhFA0lFQU MORE]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDd_6zyJwRQ SO]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIZuDbDI4nc HNNNN]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlDym8EURK8 NNNNNNN]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=221EHekXsQo GGGGGG!]]
* Hina from ''LightNovel/PapaNoIukotoOKikinasai'', is strong enough to put you in a diabetic coma.
* Franchise/{{Pokemon}}
** Some of the critters, especially those belonging to the main characters of the [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} anime]]. Granted, some of these start out cute and get progressively...less so, but there are some that stay adorable. Example: Igglybuff, Jigglypuff and Wigglytuff. Even their NAMES are cute!
** The Chansey family also falls into this, especially Happiny, the baby form of Chansey. It has a diaper! D'awww...
** The film short ''Pikachu and Pichu'', which plays at the beginning of one of the movies, is SO cute. Heck, any time Pokémon are interacting in a friendly manner without their trainers present probably counts.
** In the ''Diamond and Pearl'' episode ''Battling a Cute Drama!'' Ash and friends meet a girl who only cares for cute Pokémon. In fact, when Dawn ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Brock]]) battle her, she spends almost all of her time giving speeches about her cute Pokémon. Everyone else is both disgusted and annoyed. [[OffModel Or crosseyed.]]
** Dawn and Piplup themselves are ''big'' offenders of this trope.
*** That is, if Dawn isn't busy [[StepfordSmiler having emo moments]].
** Most of the anime and movie endings are this as well. For example, the first ''Best Wishes'' ending, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DatuMyJR4Yk Kokoro no Fanfare]]. It involves a ''Pokémon marching band.''
** The short ''Eevee And Friends'' is one of Pokemon's strongest examples of this trope. It basically is 20-30 plot-less minutes of adorably cute Pokemon playing around and just being sugary sweet, including [[PlotHole evolved Pokemon that should not be found in the wild in the first place, because they need stones to evolve.]]
** Much (but not all) of the series can qualify, though being an anime for young boys (rather than girls) it isn't the most extreme example. NeverSayDie, ThePowerOfFriendship, and {{Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain}}s are frequently in full effect, and much of the screentime is filled with "cute" Pokémon speaking in PokemonSpeak. Many of the series' later dub theme songs, [[AmericanKirbyIsHardcore despite being less soft than the original Japanese songs]], dealt with ThePowerOfFriendship.
* While there is some debate over whether the film as a whole qualifies (it is one of the few films from Creator/HayaoMiyazaki that is very definitely for young children), pretty much everyone agrees that the song that assaults you during the end credits of the American dub of ''Anime/PonyoOnTheCliffByTheSea'' is... yikes. Just yikes.
-->"She's a little fish from the deep blue sea! / She's a little girl with a round tuh-mee!"
* ''Anime/{{Potemayo}}'', on the surface. Then you get to the ''Film/BrokebackMountain'' references, crossdressing and toilet humour (and HoYay) and you begin to wonder [[WidgetSeries just what the hell you're watching]].
* Intentionally evoked for parody reasons throughout the ''Anime/PrettySammy'' series. Sammy's "Pretty Space" turns the area around her into a diabetic coma inducing place saturated by the color [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick piiiink]] and with hearts floating everywhere. This gets commented on by the other characters a few times.
* This is how most people react when they first hear about an anime called ''Anime/PrincessTutu''. It's about a duck who turns into a girl who turns into a [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Magical Girl Ballerina Princess]]! Suffice it to say that [[DefiedTrope this is NOT]] a SugarBowl.
* [[CrapsackWorld Anything]] not in the [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs Witches' Realm]] in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' and Kyubey. [[TearJerker Really]], [[HarsherInHindsight IT'S THAT BAD]].
** Well, it ''is'' an [[BlatantLies Iya]][[MemeticMutation shi]][[{{Iyashikei}} kei]] series.
** [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion The film]] takes this further than the series ever did. For the first half-hour, it centers on the '[[FiveManBand Puella Magi Holy Quintet]],' who defeat [[UglyCute fairly cuddly]] bad dream monsters with the help of their cute sidekicks (the BigBad and KnightOfCerebus in the original) by using MagicMusic to turn the bad dreams into cake and friendship. [[spoiler: This is the result of the LotusEaterMachine Homura's been stuck in, and being ''Madoka'', it doesn't take long before things go downhill.]]
* ''Anime/RiskySafety''. My teeth!
* The "Super S" season of ''Anime/SailorMoon'' was notorious for this.
** Chibiusa in general is like this.
* ''Anime/SerendipityThePinkDragon'' is a sweet story of a boy and his pink, sappy-eyed sea monster. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbSIsDRiuTw Look no further than the theme song.]] ''"My, what a wonderful world we'd have if we all could be... loving and caring! Giving and sharing! Like my friend Serendipity!"''
** The Actual Books that inspired this series are only sometimes this trope, besides there being a lot more characters then those that show up in the Anime the series did a lot of heady themes albeit in a way that children could understand like racism, domestic violence and helping the environment while the series may run on Aesops [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped at least their good Aesops]]
* ''LightNovel/StrawberryPanic'', to such levels that people tend to dismiss this show as StealthParody.
* ''Manga/SugarSugarRune''. The first half of that anime feels like diabetes heaven.
* Yui from ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline''. Fans thought that she was adorable and contributed to Kirito and Asuna's relationship. Detractors on the other hand saw it as contrived and pretentious and say it contributed to the show's SeasonalRot.
* ''Anime/TamakoMarket'', for pretty much the same reasons as K-On.
* ''Tamagotchi Video Adventures'' the anime adaptation of the ''Videogame/{{Tamagotchi}}'' videogames. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14QEWBAwEls Here is a video of said series.]]
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'': While the anime in general is [[RatedMForManly very manly]], there is still one case. Nia. With Young Nia, it feels like every single pore of her body begs you with puppy eyes, "Please, love me, please love me."
* ''Anime/TenshiNiNarumon''. It is a shame that most people are turned off just by seeing the art (or the face of the main character), even though the series is really good and many times it was described as 'reverse Utena' (in terms of main themes and overall surrealism).
* ''Franchise/YuGiOh''
** Even though up to 95% of the monsters are {{Badass}} types, some of them are really cute, e.g. Kuriboh.
** Tea's deck in the anime has some cuties in there, such as Shining Friendship.
** ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' does this in one episode with a monster called [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Mokey_Mokey Mokey Mokey]]. Jaden's friends thought it was so cute, and it [[spoiler: actually makes them fall asleep.]]
** [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Rescue_Cat Rescue Cat]]! And his fuzzy comrade, [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Rescue_Rabbit Rescue Rabbit]]!
** The [[SugarBowl Madolche]] archetype definitely qualifies.
* ''Manga/YumeiroPatissiere'' is ridiculously shojo.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Art]]
* Anything, anything, '''anything''' by ''[[http://www.annegeddes.com Anne Geddes]]''.
* The complete works of [[http://www.maryengelbreit.com/ Mary Engelbreit]].
** Even her name tastes like diabetes.
* Cicely Mary Barker's ''Literature/FlowerFairies'' [[http://www.flowerfairies.com/home.html]] certainly counts.
* Jeff Koons embodies this trope from his [[http://arthistory.about.com/od/from_exhibitions/ig/lacma_bmca_08/broad_inaugural_12.htm golden statue of Michael Jackson and pet monkey Bubbles]] to a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Koons#Puppy_1992 40-foot puppy statue made of flowers]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} [[LampshadeHanging Hangs A Lampshade]] on this when reminiscing about [[spoiler:his ex-wife]]: "...all this 'I love you snookie pie' and 'you too honey lips face head mush mush'... go into diabetic shock just walking by the place."
* Miss Martian of the DC Universe, which is especially interesting considering she's a [[AlwaysChaoticEvil White Martian]]. Which leads to fans thinking she's cuter in her [[UglyCute true form]].
* Lampshaded in Mark Waid's ''ComicBook/{{Empire}}'' with the line "I need insulin listening to you!"
* Spoofed in the ''Franchise/{{Batman}}''/''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' crossover, where Scarecrow sprays Judge Death with his nightmare toxin, causing Judge Death to panic wildly over the sight of adorable ponies and cutesy little animals.
* Creator/CarlBarks found Christmas stories with AnAesop like this. Unfortunately, he was so good at it, that he got assignment after assignment.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* Ladies and gentlemen, I give you ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5690584/1/The_Vampoife_Dood_Who_Lifed Lilac Rosetta Cretan Veron]]''.
--> "Lilac, you're the most sickeningly sweet person ever to grace the planet, aren't you?" Lilac didn't seem to catch the insult, and just smiled broadly, apparently under the impression that her 'influence' had reached B as well.
* This trope is invoked in the fanfic ''Fanfic/DumbledoresArmyAndTheYearOfDarkness'', when Hannah tells Neville that her Aunt has some sickeningly cute collectible china witch figurines. Apparently, "It's like trying to eat half of Honeydukes in one sitting. You can feel your teeth start to rot the second you cross the front door."
* ''Fanfic/HarryPotterAndTheNatural20'': The hamster summoned by Milo's Christmas gift to Hannah is so adorable that "simply seeing it required a Will save, or you were compelled to want to hug it".
* [[TheQuincyPunk Heathcliffe]] and [[TheIngenue Aki]]'s relationship in ''FanFic/OnePieceParallelWorks''. One reviewer of the fic describes their relationship as "Diabeetus."
* [[CaptainObvious Parodied]] in [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3750836/24/Parody_of_Symphonia "Parody of Symphonia"]], where the particular character achieves the title ''"So saccharine, she gives you diabetes!"''
* ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}'s'' and Rosechu's children, three small, pudgy, vaguely mammalian creatures named Robbie, Cerah, and Christine. All of their dialogue is written in a sickeningly-sweet baby-talk tone with the "r"s and "l"s replaced by "w"s. Their faces forever wear grins of absent-minded, naďve bliss. These attributes have caused them to become TheScrappy in the series's "fandom," leading to ''an entire subgenre'' of fanfiction focusing around their [[SugarApocalypse extremely brutal, graphic, and merciless slaughter]].
* ''WebAnimation/TurnaboutStorm'' has this in-universe. [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Twilight]] and Spike get rather embarrassed when they mention a land overseas where weird ponies and humans coexist, those being characters from previous generations of ''Franchise/MyLittlePony''.
-->'''Twilight''': They're not weird, Spike! They're just...\\
'''Spike''': They're just what?\\
''*[[CutawayGag Cut to G1/G3 ponies]]*''\\
'''Twilight''': Uh... really... happy...\\
'''Spike''': They seem too frolicky for my taste...

* The Creator/JohnHughes movie ''Film/BabysDayOut''. Yes, it exists, and it's 99 minutes of Baby Bink giving you diabetes by being just a cute little baby, while [[ButtMonkey the three kidnappers that have held him for ransom]] get their butts handed to them trying to get him back.
* Isn't [[http://www.cdd4ever.com/Backlot03/CDDMSheets/DarlaMS01.gif Darla]] from ''WesternAnimation/CatsDontDance'' just the ''cutest'' thing? Subverted when she's [[http://www.cdd4ever.com/Backlot03/ProdArt/sketches/DDimple1.jpg being]] [[EnfantTerrible evil.]]
** An in-universe example: Darla's film ''Lil' Ark Angel'' is this, to the point where Cranston mutters "Shoot me".
* ''Film/AChristmasStory'': This is Ralphie's reaction to Aunt Clara's gift. [[http://bestmoviesevernews.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/ralphie-bunny-suit-a-christmas-story.jpg Poor Ralphie.]]
** Even his father finds it ridiculous: "He looks like a pink nightmare!"
* At the beginning of ''Film/{{Commando}}'', when Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger plays the daddy of a fourteen year-old Alyssa Milano. They do all kind of sugary things, like playing in the pool, learning karate, and especially feeding a goddamned deer. Get to kicking the villain's ass, already!
* During ''Film/TheDayAfterTomorrow'', the rescue of the LittlestCancerPatient.
* The films of Disney are usually this outside of the FamilyUnfriendlyViolence scenes.
* While still on the topic of Disney Films, Ranjan in ''Disney/TheJungleBook 2''. To be fair, this is somewhat made up for by Shere Khan, who is even more of a menacing and dangerous character this time around (he was a serious threat in the first one, but he was also more funny and charming when he wanted to be), but it still doesn't prevent the scenes with Ranjan from being overly kid-friendly. Not only is he a DeliberatelyCuteChild, but he's got quite an exaggerated kiddy voice, and even more childish mannerisms such as continuously pretending to be a tiger and trying to roar like one.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08NzDB_i3bw first three minutes]] of ''Film/{{Enchanted}}'' was a parody of things that taste like diabetes.
* ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'' Note that it is still ''so popular'' -- right up there with ''Series/HannahMontana''-- it's spawned [[{{Sequelitis}} two sequels]] and a spinoff movie, and the franchise still doesn't look dead.
* ''Film/HoneyIShrunkTheKids'''s sequel, ''Honey, I Blew Up the Kid''. Specifically, any scene with Wayne Szalinski and his two-year-old son Adam, the namesake kid. An example, where Wayne makes his voice squeaky to portray Big Bunny at Adam's bedtime:
-->'''Wayne''': ''(holding a stuffed bunny toy)'' You know what I was thinking, Big Bunny?\\
'''Big Bunny''': What?\\
'''Wayne''': I'm thinking we should be nicer to our brother Nick, you know why?\\
'''Big Bunny''': No, why?\\
'''Wayne''': Well, because he's moved to a new place now, and has got to make new friends, just like you and me.\\
'''Adam''': Yeah?\\
'''Wayne''': Yeah.
** ''Honey, I Shrunk The Kids'' itself could be seen as this.
* Parodied in the Creator/MarxBrothers film ''Film/HorseFeathers''. Thelma Todd's character is going out with Groucho, in an attempt to steal some football signals for a rival college. She adopts an extremely cutesy and high pitched voice and says "If Big-Stwong-Man don't let Icky-Baby see the football signals, Icky-Baby gonna cwy!" To which Groucho somehow manages an ''even more'' cloying voice and responds "If Icky-Baby don't stop talking like that, Big-Strong-Man gonna [[CrowningMomentOfFunny kick all her teeth wight down her thwoat]]!"
* The first half of the musical and film ''Theatre/MammaMia!'' is ridiculously cheerful. It is a musical based on ABBA songs, after all.
* Parodied and lampshaded in ''[[Film/TheNakedGun The Naked Gun: 33 1/3 - The Final Insult]]'', when Frank and his wife are in a marriage counseling session, they devolve into baby-talking pet names, at which point the therapist states "Mr. and Mrs. Drebin, please - I'm a diabetic."
* ''Anime/MyNeighborTotoro'': Mei, the 4-year-old girl who would often repeat the last thing her older sister Satsuki says.
** ''[[Anime/PonyoOnTheCliffByTheSea Ponyo]]'', another movie from Creator/HayaoMiyazaki, is even heavier on the cutesy stuff, and that includes the English dub's theme song.
* ''PreschoolUniversity''.
* The Ewoks of ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' are notorious for this. Exactly one dies, [[RockBeatsLaser despite taking on bad guys who can blow up planets and only being primitive hunter-gatherers]]. And then there was an Ewok cartoon series afterward.
* Being an adorable puppy voiced by five-year-old ''Series/AmericanIdol'' contestant Kaitlyn Maher made Tiny from ''[[Film/AirBuddies Santa Buddies]]'' [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter ridiculously cute]]. To some, irritatingly so.
* In the [=MSTing=] of the movie ''"Film/SantaClaus,"'' [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 Tom Servo]] (accurately) refers to Lupita, the main child character, as "aggressively cute."
-->"Lupita, no!"
* Parodied in the opening scenes of ''Film/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' about "[[FakeOutOpening The Littlest Elf]]." This is straight from the book, with the ShowWithinAShow often being invoked as an example of "[[SnicketWarningLabel books you should be reading instead of this one.]]"
* ''Film/{{Toys}}'': The Christmas musical at the beginning.
* Some of Creator/DonBluth's later films, especially ''WesternAnimation/ATrollInCentralPark'' exhibit such cuteness in their characters that it is undoubtedly unhealthy to watch.
* The ending of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfTheTitanic'' takes this UpToEleven. The sickeningly happy atmosphere regarding the film's approach to a tragedy makes the film rife with UnfortunateImplications.
* Pretty much any Hallmark original movie shown on the Hallmark channel. All the characters (especially the CHILDREN) are so sappily unrealistic, you just may want to gag, leave the room, or both. Extra sap points when it's a Christmas movie.
** Double Bonus Points when said Christmas movie features a helpful old man with a beard. Could he somehow be the really for real...?
*** And speaking of Christmas movies, pick ''one''.
* The movie adaptation of ''WesternAnimation/TheLorax'' has shades of this. Examples include some of the woodland critters that the Once-ler meets (especially Pipsqueak) and some of the musical numbers like "Let It Grow," which can really come across as sappy and unnecessary. However, the biggest offender has to be that little three year-old girl that gets an entire verse to herself in "Let It Grow," and is basically just there for people in and outside of the movie to adore. UGH, if that doesn't qualify for this trope, I don't know what does.
* ''WesternAnimation/HappyFeet'', to a certain extent. An entire segment of it focuses on baby penguins learning to sing (and dance in Mumble's case), so you're bound to get at least some of this. However, the sequel takes it UpToEleven in the form of even more of a focus on baby penguins. Then there's Mumble's son Erik, who takes the cuteness factor to absolutely ridiculous heights.
* The 2003 version of ''Film/CheaperByTheDozen'' and its sequel.
* ''Film/TheOogielovesInTheBigBalloonAdventure'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6R8ejuwlbuU]]. And yes, it's a feature film.
* The ''WesternAnimation/IceAge'' series can sometimes get into Taste Like Diabetes territory whenever they show younger children-just look at any scene involving Roshan, Peaches as a baby or a kid, and the baby dinosaurs.
* In ''Film/BackToTheBeach,'' the Big Kahuna, excited at the prospect of seeing his daughter, goes off on a sugar-ladden, sickeningly cute pet names for her. Lampshaded when his GenreSavvy son tries to stop him before...the entire rest of the airplane cabin break out the air sickness bags.
* In-universe in ''[[Film/TheAddamsFamily Addams Family Values]]'': The summer camp full of rich kids of [[WhiteAngloSaxonProtestant WASPs]], which of course makes it a living hell for Wednesday and Pugsley.
** A little girl explaining how her mommy got a baby, invoking every trite and saccharine "where babies come from" myth of the past few centuries. And it leads to Wednesday's [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Crowning Moment of]] {{Deadpan Snarker}}y.
-->'''Young Girl''': And then Mommy kissed Daddy, and the angel told the stork, and the stork flew down from heaven, and left a diamond under a leaf in the cabbage patch, and the diamond turned into a baby!
-->'''Pugsley''': Our parents are having a baby, too.
-->'''[[DeadpanSnarker Wednesday]]''': They had sex.
* Disney's adaptation of ''Theatre/BabesInToyland'' could count, but ''especially'' the song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihFZNcV8L88 "Just A Whisper Away"]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* ''Literature/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'': Invoked with the first few minutes of TheFilmOfTheBook, which is quickly and mercilessly subverted by a RecordNeedleScratch.
** In one TakeThat, the narrator refers to real-life poet Edgar Guest as "a writer of limited skill, who wrote awkward, tedious poetry on hopelessly sentimental topics," invoking this trope.
* For {{Literature/Redwall}}, [[TwoWordsObviousTrope one word:]] '''Dibbuns!''' (Especially in the later books).
* ''Literature/HarryPotter''
** Rowling sends up this trope with [[Characters/HarryPotter Dolores Umbridge]] in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix Order of the Phoenix]]'', as she's described as having images of insipid kittens mewling on the walls of her office wherever she works and her voice is described as "high, girlish" and sounding like "poisoned honey," she wears a black hairbow, and in the movie she is seen putting loads of sugar (PINK SUGAR) in her tea (also pink). This is a subversion, because she's actually a [[SadistTeacher sadistic,]] evil, and [[FantasticRacism bigoted]] old hag.
** Beatrix Bloxam, author of the "Toadstool Tales" book series that was banned by the Ministry of Magic because the stories caused nausea and vomiting. One would normally assume this meant the stories were scary, as exemplified in [[http://spitefire.livejournal.com/21148.html this]] fanfic. But in Dumbledore's notes within ''Literature/TheTalesOfBeedleTheBard'', it's revealed that the child readers' negative reactions were instead due to Bloxam having re-written Beedle's and others' wizarding fairy tales so that they're sickeningly sweet. "Then the little golden pot danced with delight - hoppitty hoppitty hop! - on its tiny rosy toes! Wee Willykins had cured all the dollies of their poorly tum-tums, and the little pot was so happy that it - " *BARF*
** Then there's the epilogue: "All was well" ... a bit too well for those sensitive to excessive cuteness.
* Many people react in this way to the over-the-top, frequent love scenes, love phrases and love acts in the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' series.
* The late Dorothy Parker considered the Franchise/WinnieThePooh book ''The House At Pooh Corner'' to fall into this trope: "And it is that word 'hummy', my darlings, that marks the first place in ''The House at Pooh Corner'' at which Tonstant Weader fwowed up."
* How Susan's charge Twylla in ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}'' ''tries'' to act to endear people to her, but Susan will have none of it.
-->'''Susan''': Real children don't go hoppity-skip unless they are on drugs.
* [[LoveFreak Madeline Bassett]] in Creator/PGWodehouse's Literature/JeevesAndWooster stories. Even Bertie Wooster, who's hardly the poster child for cynicism, finds her more than a bit much.
* The new dog book epidemic (TheDogOnlyAFamilyCouldLove, ThePupAfterMertle, MarleyAndMe), adorable stories of man's best friend are this.
** In the words of one reviewer from EntertainmentWeekly - "Not to be callous, but I've had it! I'm sure Oogy and Pukka are great pooches, but their cloyingly cute books are enough to give you a case of canine diabetes."
* Lewis Carroll's lesser known duology, the ''Literature/SylvieAndBruno'' books. The overly-cutesy perfection of the title children is probably the main reason these books are not given the same love as Alice.
* In the Christmas-themed ''More & More & More Tales To Give You Literature/{{Goosebumps}}'', one of the short stories, ''A Holly Jolly Holiday'', dealt with a young girl whose older sister bought a video of a vomit-inducing Christmas special. The video had the power to turn those who watch it for a prolonged amount of time into near-carbon copies of the main character, Susie Snowflake.
* In-universe example from ''Literature/TheHost''. Souls kept television around after taking over the planet, but every single pre-invasion show (save, briefly, for ''Series/TheBradyBunch'') was booted off the air and replaced with the Souls' original programs. All of them fit this trope.
* ''Juniper'' by Robert Kraus. A preschool book about a bunny named Juniper, who lives in an Easter egg. He befriends a doe named Jeanette, she decides never to go home, and they play happily ever after. And one gets the depressing impression that any [[Literature/WatershipDown elil]] that ate them would get sick from the cloyingness.
* The ''MillyMollyMandy'' stories.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* Lampshaded in ''Series/{{Psych}}'' when Lassiter tries to win back his estranged wife with sugary-cutesy figurines and an equally nauseating card. When she rejects him, he takes the sugary-cutesy figurines down to the shooting range and happily blows each one away.
* ''Series/BarneyAndFriends'', to most people over the age of four. Some of these folks become parents and the "purple freak" is forgiven as being a instant thirty minute babysitter.
* ''Series/HeresHumphrey'' is this due to the mundane nature of each episode, the cheery kid-sung songs and [[ViewersAreMorons a host that talks down to the viewers]]. Is there any surprise that Australian kids between the age of six and sixteen have a strong dislike for him?
* Oh boy Willow and Tara in the early stages of their relationship in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', the episode "Family" being the sappiest episode ever. It ended with the two of them hugging while floating in the air. Thankfully they became a much more realistic couple towards the end of season 5.
* PlayedForLaughs on ''Series/{{Angel}}'' where a children's show is stealing souls. Watching one episode Angel hears one of the songs played, begins quivering with rage at how sappy it is before demanding they go all Jihad on the show.
* ''Series/TheTenthKingdom'' largely avoided this... an exceptional feat for a 10-hour miniseries about fairy tales. But in certain places, the sappiness factor was cranked UpToEleven. See also: Hearts and butterflies swarming through the air in Kissing Town under a ''pink, heart-shaped moon.'' Insulin, STAT. Add in the literal LoveIsInTheAir, most exemplified by the massive pink heart which appears over Wolf and Virginia's head as they share their first kiss, and the little Cupid girl skipping through the streets dispensing fortunes, and... yeah.
** Then there's the singing ring...
* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}''
** Parodied in the episode "The Soup Nazi." George and Elaine are disgusted by the sappy nicknames Jerry and his GirlOfTheWeek constantly call each other. So George decides to strike back by doing the same thing with Susan. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard But the plan works too well, and Susan starts babbling like a two-year-old]].
** A surprisingly straight example, for a show centered on four cynical {{Jerkass}}es (although Kramer and occasionally Elaine [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold could be very well-meaning]]); some of the child characters who appeared now and then could be pretty sugary. One example being the boy in the hospital Kramer accidentally donated the Yankee birthday card to in the episode "The Wink."
* The Creator/{{MTV}} Music/MileyCyrus New Year's Special ''A Miley-Sized Surprise'': The Veronicas dressed up as fairies, a high-pitched sugary voice reading horrible poetry with the most TotallyRadical {{Painful Rhyme}}s imaginable, and all the gushing about making a difference combined.
* Connie Talbot from ''Series/BritainsGotTalent''.
* In later episodes of ''Series/FamilyTies'' we get little Andrew Keaton, the youngest of the four Keaton children. It even affects the politics-obsessed Alex P. Keaton
* The ending voice over segments in ''Series/ModernFamily''.
* Creator/TheBBC's ''Series/RobinHood'' occasionally strays into this sort of territory with its uplifting messages and such. Then the writers, in their infinite wisdom, decided to have an episode filling in Robin and Guy's backstory. Cue Child!Robin developing his addiction to vomit-inducingly-noble stances while throwing out tax collectors.
* This trope is a staple of a video known as the Palate Cleanser on ''Series/WebSoup'', which immediately follows the segment "Things You Can't Un-See."
* The various ''Franchise/StarTrek'' spinoffs have several episodes set on the resort planet, Risa. It's supposed to be the Federation's greatest vacation place, but both the environment and the locals are sickeningly nice and hospitable. Justified in-universe by the weather being artificially controlled and the locals' hospitality expressing mainly via [[FreeLoveFuture free love attitudes]].
* The Doctor's holographic family in the ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode "Real Life" start out like this, but B'Elanna tells him how unrealistic this is and he agrees to let her alter the programme to make it more realistic.
** She also invokes it by first saying, "I am stopping this before my blood sugar levels overload."
* Semi-parodied among Franchise/TheMuppets with Bean Bunny. The Muppet that Henson Studios learned to love to hate.
** The 1981 episode of ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' with Music/LindaRonstadt, particularly the finale, where she sings "When I Grow Too Old To Dream." It's very heavily sentimentalized - resident {{Jerkass}} Rizzo the Rat is actually ''shedding tears'' as he listens to the song.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has [[http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/Adipose the Adipose]], essentially ''living fat''. (Leave it to Series/DoctorWho to combine this with BodyHorror...)
** See also "Fear Her". [[{{Narm}} "Feel the love!"]]
** Some fans complain that the Tenth Doctor and Rose got like this.
** It sort of parodied this trope in the bizarre and controversial story ''The Happiness Patrol'', from the Classic era. Basically, the Doctor and co. travel to a society where ''everyone'' is happy, all the time. Except it's discovered later that being anything ''but'' happy is treated as a crime. The TARDIS is painted pink, and one of the villains is a "Kandyman".
* In an episode of ''Series/HaveIGotNewsForYou'', Stephen Fry, upon seeing Victoria and David Beckhams' coat of arms (the motto being something along the lines of Love Friendship), he quipped "sometimes there just isn't enough vomit in the world."
** He made the same joke on QI when panelist Clive Anderson's buzzer was the sickeningly saccharine "Everything I Do, I Do It For You" by Bryan Adams.
* Animal Planet's ''Series/TooCute'' documentary series contains graphic depictions of CUTENESS.
** [[http://animal.discovery.com/videos/too-cute-kittens-extra-footage/ There's even scenes]] that are TOO CUTE FOR T.V.!
* An obscure television series called ''Hug-a-Bug Club'' was pretty much ''Series/BarneyAndFriends'', except with insects instead of dinosaurs.
* ''Film/TheStarWarsHolidaySpecial''. It's particularly jarring when you consider that at the end, Luke and Leia join them, and their families were killed in the movie. It's even more jarring when you consider that [[FunnyAneurysmMoment in a couple decades, Chewie will have the moon dropped on him]].
* This was a major complaint about ''Series/FullHouse'' back in the day. But hey, if the show didn't fit this, it wouldn't have been the {{Trope Namer|s}} for [[SentimentalMusicCue Full House Music]]. Seasons 6, 7, and 8 toned down a bit on this, though, only having that occur whenever [[CousinOliver Nicky and Alex]] are involved. On an interesting note, any moment on a show that is overly sappy (even if the show itself is not normally) is called a "Full House Moment" outside of Wiki/TvTropes.
* Invoked on ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' with Nummymuffin Cocoabutter, an impossibly adorable pet created by Dr. Forrester so he can take over the world while everyone is preoccupied with one. He ends up getting sucked into the CutenessProximity himself before this can happen.
* The end of the TV film of ''TheStand''. King ended the book with a mix of light and dark,but the miniseries really turned up the sentimentality and happier stuff.
* Parodied on episode three of ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' when Eric Idle played a children's storyteller who read stories that started out like this but [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids rapidly went south]]:
-->'''Storyteller:''' Rempletweezer ran the Dinky Tinky shop in the foot of the magic oak tree by the wobbly dum dum bush in the shade of the magic glade known as Dingly Dell. Here he sold contraceptives and... (''turns pages anxiously'') discipline?... naked?... (''turns book sideways, apparently looking at an illustration'') With a ''melon''!?
* "Sprout." Just,"Sprout." The fact that the main character is a baby chicken who speaks only in squeeks is only the beginning of the sugar coma!
* Penelope Garcia from ''Series/CriminalMinds'' tends to evoke this in the fans, since in some episodes her cuteness can go UpToEleven (especially in later seasons). Her wardrobe is always colourful, and her tone is extremely playful, and not just with [[PlatonicLifePartners Derek Morgan]]. It's {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in "No Way Out II: The Evilution of Frank" by her boss, Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner, when he profiles the team to his boss, Erin Strauss (reviewing his conduct), saying that Garcia fills her room with cute figurines and pictures for her to "remind herself of humanity when faced with the horrors that fill her screens".
* The climax of the ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' episode with Frasier's ex-wife Nanny G. Yes...the ''stage show''. Good grief, the '''stage show'''!!!
* In one episode of ''[[Series/{{Blackadder}} Blackadder the Third]]'', Edmund needs Prince George to marry Amy Hardwood, daughter of an industrialist, whose "nosey-wosey is so tiny, sometimes I think the pixies gave it to me!" Coincidentally, this predated by only a few years Hugh Laurie as Bertie Wooster having to get disengaged from Madeline Basset, who Amy might be a parody of (although Madeline lacks Amy's secret double-life as a man-voiced, squirrel-murdering highwayman.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* In general, music falling under this trope (songs that make your teeth decay) is called "schmaltz."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwbkklN0XQw Faster by Matt Natason.]] One line, sung very sweetly and softly, is "You taste like sunlight and strawberry bubblegum."
* Parodied in Music/KatyPerry's video for ''California Gurls''. She and the other characters are pieces of a fictitious board game called ''Candyfornia''.
* Snuggle Bunny (Schnuffel Bunny In German), a CGI bunny that sings cute songs. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrtNQluMU3c They use this music video as a commercial for ringtones.]] So cute! So obnoxious!
* If you thought Snuggle Bunny was cute. Then meet Snuggelina or (Schnuffelienchen in German). [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPFjA_fYDFw In her debut music video "Kiss Me, Hold Me, Love Me"]] The best part is when Snuggelina hugs the Snuggle Bunny plush. Also Snuggelina is Snuggle Bunnie's girlfriend which means that Snuggle and Snuggelina are [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming love birds!]]
* Japanese idols. UsefulNotes/{{Kawaisa}} and {{moe}} to the max.
** Of special note is Music/KyaryPamyuPamyu. Song titles include [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UoK8DaJRDaM CANDY CANDY]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzC4hFK5P3g PONPONPON]] (Pop Pop Pop) and CHERRY BON-BON.
*** If you like cute boys, there's the [[Music/{{Vocaloid}} Len]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcKwDTJcdUI cover]] of PONPONPON.
** Music/KodaKumi takes this trope on frequently when she feels like ditching her sexy image. Songs like Koi no Tsubomi, Birthday Eve, Stay, Joyful, Wonderland, Melting, Bambi, Twinkle, KAMEN... if the songs don't sound too cutesy, don't worry! The accompanying [=PVs=] will turn your blood to molasses.
* The song "Honey," sung by Bobby Goldsboro. It got a lot of votes in Creator/DaveBarry's Worst Song Ever poll because, as one person put it, "Bobby never caught on that he could have drilled a hole in himself and poured the sap out." And this being Goldsboro, that's just for starters.
* Disney pop. Even the ''break-up'' songs are cute and ''bouncy.''
* Almost any song by ''[[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} IOSYS]]'' that has gotten an animation, several of them listed [[AwesomeMusic/TouhouProject here]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oL871Wbi1oc Even without a video to accompany this, your blood will turn into syrup.]]
** Then there's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVtTNN8jJXU Neko Miko Reimu]]"...
* Once you understand what the lyrics mean in English (or if you've even heard it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySp7JOw9uao sung in English]]), "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vTqv8naUdY Bouken Desho Desho]]," opening theme of [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya an anime that needs no introduction]], ''[[SlidingScaleLongName easily]]'' falls into this. Thank goodness for the ''[[Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei despair]]'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUYCX0905lo treatment]].
** Then there's "[[DancingTheme Hare Hare Yukai]]"... EarWorm, anyone?
*** And even happier than the above, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERGGVE7HRfM this.]]
**** I see your Mikuru and raise you [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYwr68ObbMg Kyon's sister]].
** Not sure about "Bouken Desho Desho," but just remember that "Hare Hare Yukai" is being sung by ''Haruhi'', not her voice actress...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJMKfvUfW_o Pink Dinosaur]].
* ''Music/KidzBop.'' Small children cover songs never, uh, ''[[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids intended]]'' for their demographic.
* "The Christmas Shoes" by New Song with the adorable, dirty little scamp with the dying mother.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FyjKQvWKw8 "Butterfly Kisses,"]], by Bob Carlisle, is highly pukeworthy.
* Music/{{Vocaloid}} Yuki Kaai has managed to somehow be even more adorable than her sisters. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXTsI9XEamI Case]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlvpKdFtOPM in]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPeJBn_QFQM point]].
* Speaking of Vocaloid, Oliver is often portrayed as this. It's parodied in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXO3pNOgF6o this song.]]
** Takoluka. If you're not grossed out by her, you're probably fawning over the mere sight of her.
*** The audio drama [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Dx65lqDl78 "Let's Speak in English with Luka Megurine"]] has Len and Rin attempting to speak English with Tako Luka. Hearing the two attempt to pronounce "road roller" is especially adorable.
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1R0i7BKi-p4 Tako Luka * Tuna Fever]]. I can't be the only one who ships [[InterspeciesRomance Takoluka / Ooma-san]].
*** There's a line of [[http://extrovertedotaku.blogspot.com/2011/04/shinryaku-tako-luka-musume.html official Takoluka plushies]], with seven different possible facial expressions. They have magnets on their tentacles, allowing you to stick 'em on fridges and cabinets. The end result may cause you to pass out from cuteness overload.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=504jpjucl0k Cat Ear Switch]] is about having kitten ears and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoWc3sf3t2I RingxRingxRing]] is about singing and letting the whole world know about how happy you are because if you do that then everybody else will be happy as well and you'll be one big happy family. It just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter.
* [[http://cuppycake.ytmnd.com/ My honey bunch, sugarpwums, pumpy-umpy-umpkin. You'we my sweety-pie. You'we my cuppy-cake gumdwops, snoogums-boogums. You'we the apple of my eye... :3]]
** [[http://www.cuppycake.com/ Origin of song.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVWzZ_lZKTU "Do you want to be a professional, or do you want to be a screw-up?" "A skwew-up!"]]
** Wow, she's [[PerverseSexualLust grown]] [[FetishFuel quite a bit...]]
** [[http://dcuppycakes.ytmnd.com/ Parodied for the lulz, now that's diabetes for daddy!]] '''({{N|otSafeForWork}}SFW)'''
** Subverted in one part of FanFic/AMVHell 4, with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTAEwkSnBFk BABY!Sasuke and his big brother Itachi]].
*** There's also a parody featuring [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion the first Rei and Naoko Akagi]]...
* Music/TaylorSwift, despite how well written and performed most of her music is, can sometimes fall into this. Even [[GreenEyedMonster pure, unadulterated envy]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuNIsY6JdUw can sound tooth-rottingly saccharine]] when coming from her.
** Good luck finding a better aversion than [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCMqcFAigRg "Picture To Burn"]], though.
** Unlike many of the other examples on this list, however, Swift actually has a sense of humor about this and sometimes makes fun of herself for it.
** Her last album, ''Red'', pretty much averts this trope.
* Plenty of Music/MartinaMcBride's material can fall into this category. If you can't stand ''her,'' you will probably puke out your guts over Music/TaylorSwift.
** "This One's for the Girls" deserves special mention. Clearly intended to be about female empowerment, this song's lyrics were [[TheyJustDidntCare not]] [[{{Narm}} well]] [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment written.]] For example, she puts the spotlight on various walks on life, but for the 25-year-olds, she forgets to give any real encouragement.
* The entire genre known as "Twee Pop," a subgenre of indie rock. Mind, some of their lyrics are biting or even angsty, but the presentation is wrapped in pink.
** Bubble Gum pop; Janet Jackson's pre-''Control'' work deserves honorable mention.
* The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus' SurprisinglyGentleSong ''Your Guardian Angel'' starts out this way, but then suddenly goes into hard rock mode toward the end.
* The song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvpRViH-2J8 Brownie the Cat]] by The Brilliant Green is pure unadulterated High-Octane Adorable Fuel.
** Put it to an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGsy-NeEGzA adorable AMV]] to make it a WMD (Weapon of Mass D'awww.)
* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9nE2spOw_o Sugar, Sugar]]" from ''[[Comics/{{Archie}} The Archies]]''-- aka the poster child for sweet 60s pop music.
** ... which produces a completely different picture if you assume that "Sugar" and "Honey" are {{Unusual Euphemism}}s.
* Donna Lewis' ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdydipoUjkw I Love You Always Forever]]''. ''especially'' the chorus. If you can hack that one, though, you're set.
** And another of her songs, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUOcSoHBcJA Mother]]''.
* Doubling as an EarWorm, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSvOowL7rkU Moji Pittan.]] Even more so if you understand the lyrics. It's a lot better with the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rle2zmmMzS0 Angry German Kid]] treatment.
* Music/MichaelJackson could be ''awful'' about this when he was trying to be heartwarming and/or tearjerking: "Someone in the Dark," "Gone Too Soon," "Heal the World," "Childhood," and "The Lost Children" (the first is from the ''[[Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial E.T. -- The Extra-Terrestrial Storybook Album]]'', on which his overemoted narration ladled syrup all over a film that largely avoided this trope). After his death, the sentimentality of him and his fans was turned UpToEleven, as the video for the posthumous single [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oCCnxBos10 "Hold My Hand"]] (with Akon) proves -- happy little dancing multiracial children, sparkles, balloons, hearts, angels, you name it.
** In "Will You Be There," he delivers a maudlin, sobbing monologue.
* Dear Lord, Music/JustinBieber. Only ''he'' can make a 16 year old male sound and look like a 10 year old girl. Pairing him with rappers only makes it worse.
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koJlIGDImiU&feature=av2e Hero]]" by Enrique Iglesias, a song so ridiculously syrupy that you can feel your teeth rotting out of your head while listening to it. Then listen to the ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hF8-FF_V8wQ version]] instead!
* Everything that Hellogoodbye has ever recorded. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05VaUDa6k9A This]] (''When We First Met'') is their latest song, and it's not even near their previous hit, ''Here In Your Arms,'' on the cute-o-meter.
* Similarly, anything by Mika. His reign of cuteness teams up with a large-scale rampage of LyricalDissonance, with songs including not getting too caught up in love [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6md5RSnVUuo&ob=av2el (with an adorable cartoon video as well, which includes nearly everything in the precautionary list at the top of this page)]] and a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gX0AJbRjJRE married doctor who gets in a secret relationship with another man.]]
* Parodied in Music/LosCampesinos!'s video for "Death To Los Campesinos!" - the band had been pigeon-holed as a cutesy twee-pop band and so in the video showed their frustration by having the band being killed off by kittens, rainbows, confetti, and vomiting flowers.
* Anything made by Music/OwlCity. The song "Fireflies" makes insomnia sound saccharine.
* It's odd for Music/WithinTemptation, but "In Perfect Harmony" creates cavities with each repeat of the chorus.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgqDURxuZo0&ob=av2n Utopia]]" takes this UpToEleven.
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YriPIujLtsA Long Haired Lover from Liverpool]]" by Jimmy Osmond. (Yes, an ''{{Osmond}}.)'' Dear God, it makes a lot of the other songs here look macho.
* For those who can't stand Music/VanessaCarlton's voice, her work will occasionally fall into this, but especially the ''Heroes and Thieves'' album.
* Most anything by Math The Band, a Nintendocore duo. I believe "saccharine" is the operative word.
* ''How Much is that Doggie in the Window?'' -- butchered by HomerAndJethro in ''How Much is that Hound Dog in the Window?''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-ejCD6ZR0U "Dear Mr. Jesus"]] by Power Source, is a hideously overwrought Christian pop/rock song about the evils of child abuse, sung by a six-year-old girl, and it somehow made it to #61 on the Billboard charts.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8hKMFBbJZVI&feature=relmfu A Child on the Street]] by Philippine (now former) child idol singer, Jaymie Baby (ugh, even her name tastes like diabetes) has it singing about a child on the street, but possibly about an orphan or a young beggar too. If you're nostalgic, you'd probably say to yourself this is probably something ''{{Madeline}}'' would sing. She's more known as a rapper of children-targeted songs. If you're a Filipino (or just someone who can understand their language) the other songs can count as well because of how thematic and childish it sounds.
* Heintje, a German child star singer from TheSeventies. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0yqKrGKukE Listen to his "Mama"]].
* " Sugar Rush" by Japanese pop band: Music/AKB48, a song for the faux video game 'Sugar Rush' in the Disney movie Wreck it Ralph. The game is a parody of children's racing games especially ones found in Japan, set in a world made of candy, with candy themed race cars and candy themed racers. The Jpop band Music/AKB48, also filmed a music video in which they dress up in candy themed costumes likewise in a candy themed world.
* "Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows" sung by Lesley Gore at the end of ''Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs'' fits this. It's as sweet as the lollipops in the title.
* Kina Grannis' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOu0DuxFAT0 "In Your Arms"]] is this [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming in the]] [[TropesAreNotBad best possible way]].
* The Backstreet Boys could be seen as this back in their prime.
* The more upbeat strains of PowerMetal are sometimes accused of this by other metalheads. One particularly memorable review puts it thus:
-->Freedom Call's ''Crystal Empire'' is a shiny flurry of sparkling Carebears prancing through fields of poesies with rainbows shooting out of their asses and sunbeams shining in through one ear and out the other without obstruction, and I'll be damned if it doesn't grate on the nerves.
* "My Front Porch Looking In" by Music/{{Lonestar}}:
-->There's a carrot top who can barely walk, with a sippy cup of milk\\
A little blue-eyed blonde with shoes on wrong 'cause she likes to dress herself\\
And the most beautiful girl holding both of them\\
Yeah, the view I love the most is my front porch looking in
* If you find that the early stuff by Music/TheSweet, like "Funny Funny", is not a convincing example, just hear their later stuff, say, "Blockbuster", first. And THEN "Funny Funny".
* If ''Falling Into You'' does not put Music/CelineDion into this territory, ''nothing'' does. Not even "My Heart Will Go On."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* ''ComicStrip/LoveIs''. Concentrated and undiluted example.
* ''ComicStrip/FamilyCircus''. almost no one but 6-year-olds and grandmothers actually finds it anything but sickeningly sweet.
* ''ComicStrip/RoseIsRose''.
* ''ComicStrip/{{Monty}}'' played with the trope, adding the alarmingly cute Giggles the Bear to the cast. The strip claims readership reached an all-time high, citing letters like "After reading today's 'Giggles' strip, I cut it out and cuddled it - signed, My Inner Child," and "When I saw your new character/product line 'Giggles,' I felt a peculiar stirring in my loins - signed, Comic Syndicate Executive."
* An in-universe example in ''{{ComicStrip/Peanuts}}''. Before Linus was old enough to read and write, he would have Charlie Brown take down his letters to Santa Claus, and they were so overly saccharine (Linus admitted he was trying to butter him up), Charlie Brown had to quit writing, claiming he was getting nauseated.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Subverted again in ''TabletopGame/{{Munchkin}} Fu'' with the monster card "Big Eyes, Small Mouse." Its description? "Too cute to live. Your duty is clear."
* TabletopGame/{{Candyland}}.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theater]]
* "She's in Love" from TheMusical version of ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' (it's sung by Ariel's sisters and Flounder). Just...uughh.
* Subverted in ''Theatre/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'': Veruca Salt is an adorable-looking, blonde, pink-clad, ballet-loving-down-to-the-tutu tot...and a SpoiledBrat extraordinare who's AllTakeAndNoGive to her forever-accomodating dad. Their mutual IAmSong "When Veruca Says" is the cutesiest-sounding number in the show, too, playing up LyricalDissonance. When she decides she wants one of Willy Wonka's nut-sorting squirrels though, she learns the hard way that cute is not nice...
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Toys]]
* Most toy lines and cartoons aimed at young girls. Particularly {{Franchise/Barbie}}'s EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses spin-off toyline.
* Franchise/MyLittlePony, [[EarWorm My Little Pony...]]
** Actually subverted in some (but NOT all) of the cartoons. See the Western Animation folder for examples.
* Franchise/LittlestPetShop. Those eyes are ''horrifying.''
* That darn Squinkies commercial.
* {{Lalaloopsy}} is this, but with a dash of WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeonDrugs?
* WesternAnimation/PJSparkles
* Franchise/TheCareBears
** Subverted in '''almost all''' of the cartoons tho. Save for one ''Adventures in Care-a-Lot'' special and two ''Play-Along'' era made-for-video specials, there is always a villain in the series, no exceptions.
* Kawaii Crush: UpToEleven. Pretty much the whole point.
* Creator/FisherPrice's Laugh and Learn line, particularly the Love to Play Puppy and Sis plushes.
* Franchise/LeapFrog toys whose target audience are toddlers. Special mentions should be made for the Scout and Violet toys.
* Any toy from V-Tech's Baby line.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Given that video games are generally less plot-driven and character focused than other mediums, even genuinely superb games can fall into this trope. ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'', despite being an excellent game all around, succumbs to this trope with moments like the game's opening music (including the brief chime when the "Nintendo Presents" opening pops up) and the Yoshi's Island map. This is further exasperated by the fact that the (at the time) competing ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' entirely averts this trope. Much of the Franchise/SuperMarioBros franchise counts as this. The main characters are all cartoonish and happy, and many of the allies and enemies are {{Ridiculously Cute Critter}}s, and the music is usually happy and cheerful. Even BigBad SelfDemonstrating/{{Bowser}} can swing between being an IneffectualSympatheticVillain and a [[VileVillainSaccharineShow more menacing]] KnightOfCerebus.
* The designs of many ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', especially Baby Pokémon like Cleffa, Pichu, Igglybuff, Togepi, Azurill, and Happiny. The Pokémon-Amie feature in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' will cause this, even for Pokémon that aren't generally cutesy-looking.
* Parodied in ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=JeQzJC-vS40 Whimsyshire]] as a TakeThat towards complaints about early screenshots being "too colorful."
* Parodied in ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'':
** It is possible to summon a love song so saccharine that it does a fairly decent amount of damage.
** Iiti Kitty. During nearly all attacks, they state that it's an adorable monster. For a mummified cat trying to beat you senseless. Iiti is Ancient Egyptian for "Hello."
** Hell, "cute" was added as the sixth [[ElementalRockPaperScissors element]], though nothing actually uses it. Yet.
* The redesigns of the ''[[http://www.dabbledoo.com/ee/images/uploads/gamertell/littlest_pet_shop_wii.JPG "Littlest Pet Shop"]]'' pets. They were originally just small cartoon animals, but now they're saccharine googly-eyed {{Animesque}} chibi horrors (a wee monkey shouldn't have ''jowls'', darn it!). And you should see what they did to the ''Sims''...
* The entirety of ''VideoGame/TwinkleStarSprites'' (a puzzle/shooter/fighting game) is about the same color and sweetness as a pack of Starbursts. Strangely, the game is highly enjoyable nevertheless.
* ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' - at least, until its {{vil|eVillainSaccharineShow}}lains brings the MoodWhiplash. The trailer for ''VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn'' seems to have turned this UpToEleven with the art style.
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''
** Mug'gok the Ogre. Granted, most single-headed Ogres aren't exactly the brightest gemstones in the mine, but Mug'gok's childish rants and raves are kinda sappy.
** Furthermore. The tauren babies in Nagrand and, I believe, Agmar's Hammer. The first time you see them, you WILL squeal so loud that your entire vocal system will splatter over the walls.
** No [=NPC=] in [=WoW=] is more sickeningly adorable than [[http://www.wowhead.com/npc=39930#comments Mylune]]. All of her quests are about saving critters in Hyjal. She says she can speak deer (It's all in the nose) and if you don't save the little fawns, she'll give you the big eyes (Yes, her eyes grow big and dewy). She's happy when you save the deer because "now they can grow up and have ADVENTURES!" [=P.S.=] She thinks you're swell for saving the critters.
*** The "give you the big eyes" part can also be a hilarious case of DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment when you're a [[KnightInShiningArmor Paladin]] or a [[NatureHero Druid]]; you were going to save the little fawns anyway.
*** Mylune actually deserves a special mention here because her deliberately saccharine speech tends to sound funny rather than sickening. It seems that Blizzard deliberately parodied this trope with her.
* Princess Anastasia, [[InThePastEveryoneWillBeFamous yes]], ''that'' Anastasia in ''VideoGame/ShadowHearts: Covenant'' takes this trope and runs with it. And she [[EnfantTerrible damn well knows it, too.]]
* ''VideoGame/PhantomBrave'': Marona. Especially any scene with both her and Castille in it.
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''
** Kanji Tatsumi, the JerkWithAHeartOfGold, when accused by police of bullying (and he was innocent, as he was just making plushies for a boy and his mother), has this to say to the police:
-->"Dolls! I made them. They're dolls! Go and see them for yourself. They're so cute they'll give you diabetes! The instantly-lethal kind!"
** Not to mention ''Nanako...''
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss.'' [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter MIEU. And all the other cheagles]], though to a lesser degree. Especially jarring because this game is probably the darkest and has easily the highest death toll in the ''series.''
* ''VideoGame/EternalSonata'', pretty much every time Polka is on screen. Several other characters qualify as well.
* The first half of Zone 3 in ''[[VideoGame/NicktoonsUnite Nicktoons: Attack of the Toybots]]'' ([[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment which is where the second page quote came from]]) appears to be this, what with the pretty pink colors and the cute little suns and plants and dolphins and butterflies and bees decorating the area. The twist? This is where the SurpriseDifficulty kicks in... and you have to remind yourself that you're still in an EternalEngine run by a MadScientist voiced by Creator/TimCurry.
* ''{{Eversion}}'' [[CrapsaccharineWorld starts that way]].
* ''VideoGame/LocoRoco''. Wait, what?
* ''VideoGame/YoshisStory'' takes place in a cutesy storybook world with baby Yoshis as playable characters making, well, babylike sounds trying to get back the "Super Happy Tree" from Baby Bowser. Unlike the previous ''VideoGame/YoshisIsland'', which was for all ages and featured challenging stages, this game with its saccharine world and low difficulty level was obviously targeted towards little kids.
** Low difficulty, sure. Unless you're trying to get through level 6-3, that damn Ghost castle. And since it's targeted towards little kids, the precision timing and tendency of the ghosts to give chase whenever you weren't staring the bastards in the eye, this level can qualify both as That One Level and Nightmare Fuel.
*** 4-2 could also apply because of the Blurps, right?
** ''VideoGame/YoshisIsland'', while indeed more difficult, is just as adorable. You're a cute dinosaur, and you have to relay a cute baby across a colorful, crayon-drawn, (mostly) happy island environment to another cute dinosaur. Rinse and repeat until the baby is reunited with its missing twin brother.
*** The [[UpdatedRerelease Game Boy Advance port]] added the ''Yoshi's Story'' sounds but made Baby Mario's crying less annoying.
** The soundtracks for every Yoshi game after the first seem to be trying as hard as they can to invoke this trope. Almost every song is quiet, gentle, and sounds like something out of a preschoolers' cartoon. Even the boss themes don't sound particularly threatening.
* The little mole girls in Moleville from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG''. Also from that same game, we have the Mystery Egg. You can buy it from the blue-spotted Toad in Moleville after getting the 5th Star Piece, and it can only be hatched by Peach while she's wearing the B'Tub Ring and using the Egg 10 times. Afterwards, it becomes the Lamb's Lure, in which a cute, chubby, little lamb rolls around, turns an enemy into another lamb, and they fly up into the sky. If you do that 48 times, the Lamb's Lure becomes the Sheep Attack, which summons a bunch of these cute little lambs darting across the screen turning all enemies into even more lambs. If you don't find that cute, then ''get help.''
* In the Babeland level of ''VideoGame/DukeNukem3D'', there's these cartoon mice walking around, saying things like "We're gonna have a wonderful day!" in the most cringe-inducingly cutesy voice imaginable. No wonder that, when you shoot one, Duke says, "Damn, that was annoying."
* ''VideoGame/{{Beatmania}} IIDX 16'': Empress is already cute and happy and ''pink'' from the get-go. Then someone goes and plays [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1d0HiykFZQs I'm Screaming LOVE]] and it all goes to hell. Fluffy-bears-swimming-through-candy-carrying-spoons hell.
** There's ''plenty'' of precedent for this. Raspberry Heart. Sweet Lab. Romeo and Juliet. With Your Smile. Sigsig. Poodle. Silvia Drive. Eco-G. ICF 5800. Not to mention Wish, Double Loving Heart, and Sun Field...from DISTORTED.
** One word: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6s0HK-pKj0&fmt=18 smooooch]]. It's been parodied to the level of MemeticMutation.
* Regina Berry in ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney: Justice for All'' is the sweetest sheltered little lion tamer. Half the circus is in love with her (and EvenTheGirlsWantHer) and she thinks that when people 'go away' they go up to the sky and become stars. It's so intense that you're a little sympathetic when you find out [[spoiler: she was the one Acro was trying to murder.]]
* As its own official Getting Started guide puts it, "Even death is cute in ''VideoGame/LunaOnline''!"
* PlayedForLaughs in the Creator/AdultSwim Flash game ''SugarWiki/RobotUnicornAttack'', in which you play as the title's robot unicorn, dashing through a sparkly, purple world collecting fairies while Music/{{Erasure}}'s ''Always'' loops in the background.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEhWA0ejiLs Kissy Poo]] for Xbox Live Indie Games, although it might be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] seeing how it was designed for pre-schoolers. Players control the titular Kissy Poo, [[ForHappiness who must cheer up all the sad animals with a sweet kiss.]]
** [[DancePartyEnding DANCE TIME!]] [[HappyDance Do a little dance, because it's dancin' time!]]
* Famously {{subverted|Trope}} by ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'', which ''seems'' like it'd fit, but really isn't that bad at all.
* Xbox title ''VideoGame/RazesHell'' really let the player loose on those goddamned cuddlie-wuddlies. Eliminate them all. Though don't feel bad about it; said adorable creatures take WhatMeasureIsANonCute to [[WellIntentionedExtremist "slight" extremes]].
* The first couple hours of ''VideoGame/{{Klonoa}}: Door to Phantomile''. [[MoodWhiplash Then it starts getting]] [[TearJerker depressing, tragic,]] and sometimes downright horrifying.
* Parodied in ''[[VideoGame/{{Creatures}} Creatures II]]'', (and probably in Creatures I as well) where the baddies and goodies taste like diabetes but commit all sorts of bloody acts of violence on each other.
* In the ''VideoGame/DungeonKeeper'' games, this seems to be one of the reasons for the war against the surface, or at least so suggest the mission briefings. Eg: "Sing Song. A joyous realm, filled with life and music. Let us silence their wailing voices once and for all."
* {{Xbox 360}} Kinect launch title ''VideoGame/{{Kinectimals}}''. Those cubs has to be the cutest things to ever grace Microsoft's console.
** Though when it was first shown at E3, the presentation was so full of {{Narm}} that the word "Skittles" became an instant meme.
** So they're ''not'' [[UncannyValley the creepiest things]] ever to be put together from ones and zeroes?
* This trope has been played straight, exaggerated, lampshaded, parodied, deconstructed, exploited, and who knows what else in the ''ArTonelico'' series. Saki from ''ArTonelico3'' even has an attack that turns enemies (including people) into ''cake''.
* ''VideoGame/BubbleBobble'' and ''VideoGame/RainbowIslands'' are teeming with UsefulNotes/{{Kawaisa}}. Taken UpToEleven in world 4 of ''Rainbow Islands'', where all of the enemies are toys and it has even brighter colors than the other worlds.
* A literal version in ''VideoGame/TheSeveralJourneysOfReemus'' -- the honey made by Sugar Bees is so potently sweet that ingesting even a small amount will cause a temporary diabetic coma while the body sorts out all this extra sugar. Injection works just as well, so any schmuck with a dart gun can ''weaponize'' the effect.
* In contrast to the somber [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moy2gSOgFvU Tragic Marionette]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdtJj5hwDGc Sinful Rose's Fragrance]] that play on the GameOver screens of the first two ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' games, ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|Absence of Justice}}'' has the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eywOADyH7JM Maritsu Evil Academy Entrance Applicant Recruiting CM Song]]: a tune so peppy and cheerful that most fans suspect that the game is making fun of them for dying.
* In ''VideoGame/RodLand'', absolutely everything is cute, from the characters, to the bosses, to the surrounding environment.
* In the ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' official video "Meet The Pyro," it is revealed that the Pyro's delusional psychosis makes him/her/it perceive the world as this. For example, where Pyro is incinerating someone as they scream in agony in reality, Pyro sees it as showering them with bubbles and rainbows out of a shiny brass horn shaped and held like his/her/its flamethrower.
** The Pyrovision Goggles make the game this. Everything is bright and colorful, everyone (including the player) laughs cheerfully when they die, dominating a player is perceived as becoming best friends with him, and The Pyro has some toys that can only be used in Pyroland that are perceived as lethal weapons in reality (ex. Rainblower = Flamethrower).
* ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'': Originally, the infamously awful [[SuddenDownerEnding endings]] of the game resulted in a ''massive'' InferredHolocaust for all cases. This was changed in the "Extended Cut," which retconned numerous things about the endings. However, they may have gone too far in the opposite direction with the Synthesis ending: not only does everyone get along perfectly with no one caring that they've had their DNA forcibly rewritten without consent, but the organic/synthetic conflict is apparently completely over, the Reapers help rebuild the galaxy, and a bunch of dead people come back to life. Crosses over with {{Glurge}}, due to the aforementioned rewriting of everyone's DNA, because some of those dead people are [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Husks]], a lot of which are mashed together in hideous organic constructs that would result in AFateWorseThanDeath if they were actually alive.
* While the dream eaters in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3D'' are cute, they aren't overwhelmingly so. However, when you start playing games with them and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BikEwlP1ewM this song]] accompanies it...
* In ''VideoGame/BarbieSuperModel'', everything that Barbie owns is pink, there's bright and happy scenery everywhere, a big point of the game is dressing Barbie up in colorful outfits, and the game was made for little girls, who tend to love things that taste like diabetes.
* ''VideoGame/SnowboardKids'' has you play as SuperDeformed 10-11 year old children, with huge heads and huge noses. The game's levels featured props such as a gigantic snowman with a CatSmile, really short, cute penguins, an amusement park (with a gigantic circus tent used as the skydome), and a beautiful (within N64 hardware constraints) grass-filled valley with rustic brick buildings near the finish line.
** Despite the cutesy exterior, the game's difficulty level was fairly high, and the mechanics, even to this day, are very unique.
** [[SequelEscalation The sequel took it even further.]] The character designs in the sequel had things such as buck teeth, comically huge glasses, overalls, and nose band-aids. The texture art looks like it came straight from a pop-up book, and the anthropomorphic animals were much more present.
* Let's not even get started on the sickeningly cute sounds some of the enemies make in the first ''VideoGame/{{Pandemonium}}''.
* Subverted in ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay''. The game opens with a cutesy N64 logo dancing around (complete with cliche "nursery music"), but then [[spoiler:Conker storms in, horror movie music abruptly plays, and he proceeds to gleefully saw the N64 logo in half with a chainsaw - literally killing it]]. The game itself subverted this during development, as it was originally intended to be a literal representation of this trope, until Creator/{{Rare}} decided to give it a DarkerAndEdgier makeover.
* While we're on the topic of Rare games, ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'' both plays this trope straight and subverts it. Some of the enemies and especially side characters are sickeningly cute. However, Banjo and Kazooie themselves (despite their cutesy appearances) are actually pretty [[DeadpanSnarker quippy and sarcastic]], even veering into [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar blatantly adult humor]] from time to time.
* ''Franchise/SylvanianFamilies: Otogi no Kuni no Pendant''. Cutesy little girl rabbit finds injured pastel cupid-type fairy, "bandages" it with her handkerchief, and later has to return the pendant it lost. 'Nuff said.
* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' has the Baby Stars that you feed star bits too.
* In ''Pop'n Magic'', [[http://www.thegaygamer.com/2012/08/manual-stimulation-popn-magic-pc-engine.html pictures of sweets fill the background of the manual's cover and its second inside page.]] The game's world isn't quite a SugarBowl, but it's definitely on the cute side.
* Let's just leave the artwork for the Ice Tower's Viral Frost ability in ''VideoGame/BloonsTowerDefense 5'' and call it a day. Basically, it's the Ice Tower's monkey wrapped up in a blanket.
* ''VideoGame/MagicalChaserStardustOfDreams'', despite being a {{Doujinshi}} FightingGame, falls into this due to the fact that it crosses over several CuteWitch animes. All of them are done in PuniPlush style.

** And then there's [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2003-01-28 this.]] Justin's response two pages later sums up everything that can be said about that...
* ''ComicStrip/ThePerryBibleFellowship'' plays with this very often: lots of strips start too sweet, but end in some horrible bloody mess. Also, in the strip [[http://www.pbfcomics.com/?cid=PBF048-Suicide_Train.gif Suicide Train]] shows a character who has such an aversion to a too sweet world.
* ''WebComic/{{Narbonic}}'' passed into this territory for a while. It was lampshaded by the characters wondering if they were disturbing the readers by being all cutesy and flirting all the time. They then remembered that they were [[CardCarryingVillain evil]], so the readers could suck it.
* ''Webcomic/{{Weregeek}}'' had little fun with [[http://www.weregeek.com/2012/08/15/ vampire seduction]]. "''This'' is why I hate hanging around the [[CharmPerson Blood Bond]]."
* One character in ''Webcomic/AngelMoxie'' is so [[http://www.venisproductions.com/angelmoxie/archives/1/7/178.html disgustingly]] [[http://www.venisproductions.com/angelmoxie/archives/1/7/170.html cheerful]] she's creepy. Appropriately, her name is [[MeaningfulName Candi Shugari]].
* ''Webcomic/TheBoyInPinkEarmuffs'' has just the right combination of PuppyLove and pink that this happens. Note, TropesAreNotBad since it works pretty well.
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', a flashback to young Durkon with his mother. At least in the opinion of a negative energy being.

* In ''WebVideo/ComixFromTheUnderground'', the Comix Scrutinizer reviews [[http://comixfromtheunderground.blogspot.com/2012/09/comix-scrutinizer-kit-n-kay-boodle.html a comic]] that he says looks like something that "the Franchise/CareBears would beat off to."
* At one point, the cast of ''WebVideo/TheFundayPawpetShow'' got annoyed with a handful of channel dwellers who kept complaining that the show was getting too raunchy. In response they split one episode into two parts - First half was ''The Squeaky Clean Pawpet & Friends Show'' which fit this trope, followed immediately by ''The Poink Show'' which allowed the naughty weasel to crank the raunch UpToEleven.

* [[http://cuteytmnd.ytmnd.com/ This.]]
* Used for laughs in ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends''. Their misadventures often begin with them playing, doing something innocuous or disgustingly cute typical of animated animals. Of course, [[CrossesTheLineTwice it]] [[GrotesqueCute ends]] [[BloodyHilarious badly.]]
* The titular giant KillerRabbit in ''WebAnimation/BigBunny'' gives his thoughts on the matter:
-->Too many sweet things can make your brains ''sticky'' and '''''unpalatable'''''.
* The ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'' ending is pretty cute on its own but multiply its cuteness by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCgJvKme5_U putting Moemon in it.]]
* Parodied in the 'Lost Notebook' episode of ''[[http://www.atom.com/channel/channel_stickman_exodus/ Stickman Exodus]]'', as the notebook is 'borrowed' by its owner's younger sister to doodle in. Thus surrounding the PTSD-suffering stick figures with fluffy, cutesy-talking friendly flowers, bees, teddy bears, and unicorns who join everyone's hands for the ''We're All Friends!'' song. Naturally, once her brother takes it back, [[GrotesqueCute things go very, very wrong]]...
* [[http://www.cuteoverload.com Cute Overload.]] Just what it sounds like.

** In a similar vein, [[http://askbabynatural.tumblr.com/ Ask Baby Natural]] based on ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' (with a side of ''Literature/GoodOmens'').
* [[http://www.peta.org/sea_kittens/ This]] PETA website. Admittedly, though, the concept of a fish with cat ears and a Fu Manchu beard is a mite disturbing. And then we have the [[GrotesqueCute "Sea Kitten Stories"]] bit...
* Several Squiby user-created adoptable lines, including [[http://www.squiby.net/user/Fouf Foufs]]. Just ''looking'' at the holiday-edition Foufs will give you a toothache.
* The VideoGame/{{Touhou}} flashes made by takenoko exemplify this spectacularly, especially [[http://dagobah.biz/flash/IOSYS_toho5_OyomeNiShinasai.swf this one]]. '''Warning: you may die from''' '''CutenessOverload.'''
* The [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/pool/show/903 Disgustingly Adorable]] pool on Danbooru is dedicated to this sort of stuff.
--> "Pictures that invoke so much adoration that they cause near physical harm to occur. This is far above the level of just cute. Pictures that are HHHNNNGGGGG worthy."
** There's also a [[VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}} "so moe i'm gonna die!"]] tag, used for images of characters taking physical damage (often in the form of {{nosebleed}}s) from cuteness overexposure.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWZxcAeSoVI The Snuggle Bunny.]] So painfully cute it's almost an insult to actual rabbits.
* SugarWiki.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BmvIWhe_DQ SugardanSen]] tastes just as the title suggests. A 3 minute {{Moe}} explosion of [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome visually amazing]], [[{{Pun}} kawaiibeetus]]-inducing catchiness that will have you [[MemeticMutation dancing along]] if you're not HNNNNNNNNG-ing away from the combined barrage of epic/adorable.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87p53rAD7Sk 100 Ways To Love A Cat]]. Deliberately evokes this trope to create a horrific endurance video of epic proportions - at thirty-five minutes, someone put way too much effort into this. Look out for the key change at twenty minutes in.
* Music/SongsToWearPantsTo brings us [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWM2joNb9NE Pink Fluffy Unicorns Dancing on Rainbows]], though the FrozenFace smile is somewhat creepy.
* The Nyan Cat, and the little online game someone made to go with it. You have Nyans instead of points and go around getting sweets for MORE Nyans. Veggies are a no-no.
* The related {{Tumblr}} blogs [[http://everyday-cute.tumblr.com/ "Everyday Cute"]] and [[http://pusheen.tumblr.com/ "Pusheen the Cat"]] consist of almost nothing but [[EverybodyDoTheEndlessLoop hypnotically-animated]], adorably squishy cartoon cats.

* [[http://www.iloveegg.com/eng_index.htm I Love Egg!!]]/ Get ready for an overload of egg cuteness.
* Team Wondercute of the WhateleyUniverse. As if schoolgirls like [[CrazyAwesome Jade]] and [[TheDitz Misty]] and [[{{Meganekko}} Molly]] and [[WrenchWench Bunny]] aren't cutesy enough individually, they team up with some other students who like this stuff, and wreak havoc accordingly.
* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' tumblr [[http://askfluttershyandpinkiepie.tumblr.com/ "Ask Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie"]] is more or less pure saccharine, and even given that, Fluttershy's picture of Pinkie was [[TakeOurWordForIt apparently]] cute enough to induce CutenessOverload in the party pony.
* Even the Wiki/SCPFoundation sneaks a couple of these in, with [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-2558-j "Pufferkittens"]] and [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-999 "The Tickle Monster"]].

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}''. Duckman's two teddy bear assistants' (Fluffy and Uranus) sweeter-than-sweet behavior often results in Duckman ''literally'' pulling the stuffing out of them in the most violent way possible.
* Awww... wook at [[http://www.worldsfinestonline.com/WF/batman/btas/bios/babydoll/09.jpg Baby]] [[http://www.worldsfinestonline.com/WF/batman/btas/bios/babydoll/08.jpg Doll]] (''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''). She's [[OlderThanTheyLook really a 30-year-old]] [[{{Yandere}} insane]] woman who merely [[TheFakeCutie acts like a little girl]] thanks to her massive issues stemming from being a FormerChildStar whose body never matured past childhood.
* The ''Franchise/CareBears'' have a reputation for this (it's what "The Dummi Bears," a ShowWithinAShow on ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'', was inspired by) - and they ''are'' a group of pastel-colored teddy bears, but the extent of its Tastes Like Diabetes status is more a case of the WeirdAlEffect.
** Though the overbearing cuteness in the first two movies are thankfully eclipsed by the films' ''darker'' undertones which, like any series or movie with a VileVillainSaccharineShow position, pretty much kill off any chance of it being ''completely'' saccharine. Plus, in retrospect, the so-called saccharine scenes in the first two movies and the original TV series are nothing compared to the Care Bears movies and TV series of today, as well as some other kids' franchises, to say the least.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGetAlongGang''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' becomes this during Kate and Pal's episodes. The series could be seen as becoming something of it as a whole thanks to the new animation.
* A lot of children's shows that air on PBS fall into this. Eventually the network had the sense to separate them from the ones that work into a block called "PBS Kids Go".
* ''WesternAnimation/DinosaurTrain''. Cute neon-colored child dinosaurs explore the friendliest possible universe where all species across all eras have non-stop fun. It tends to dance around the meat eating, showing Buddy eating carrion, but never mentioning the actual or potential death of a dinosaur. Armor plates, etc., are shown as protecting against "mean dinosaurs".
* The entirety of ''WesternAnimation/MissSpidersSunnyPatchFriends''. Being that it IS a show for little kids, it's kind of understandable.
* That scene from the ''[[WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983 He-Man]]'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower She-Ra]]'' Christmas special. "Loooove and caaaariing..."
* The ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry Nutcracker Tale''.
** ''TomAndJerry'' itself would probably be this without the violence and slapstick. It ''could'' fall into this straight on in some occasions.
* Just about any scene from ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' featuring Pebbles. Not only does sappy "nursery" music play whenever she comes crawling in but Fred, normally an amusing [[Series/TheHoneymooners Ralph Kramden]] type, [[CutenessProximity starts going all "Oh my little Pebbly-poo" whenever she's around]].
** In ''Film/TheManCalledFlintstone'', she and Bam-Bam get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfkgPieX4zY one of the most saccharine musical numbers in history]].
---> '''Pebbles:''' I know a way to make wishes come true/Easy as climbin' a tree/Just close your eyes and open your heart/Slowly repeat after me.../Tickle, toddle, nickel-y noddle/Toodle-a bell and a shoe/These are the magical words I say/ when I want a wish to come true
** The SpinoffBabies series, ''WesternAnimation/CaveKids'', is this trope played straight. Technically, it's like the Kate and Pal episodes of WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}} combined with the sweeter parts of WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}, with some mild magical Adventures stuff thrown in. Did I mention that the show stars baby Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm?
* Lila, the "ever so" sickeningly sweet farm-girl from ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold!'', and Olga at times.
** Therefore, the episode where Lila becomes Olga's "little sister" as part of a program is absolutely rife with this stuff.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' episode "So Totally Spaced Out," where little cutesy creatures that speak in PainfulRhyme known as "Giggle Pies" become a huge threat to the cuteness-hating, violence-loving inhabitants of the planet Yugopotamia. Somewhat ironically, Giggle Pies actually taste of manure when eaten themselves.
* Pretty much every Nicktoon made after 2012. The most notable examples include WesternAnimation/RocketMonkeys, WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig, and WesternAnimation/{{Breadwinners}}. They are also considered [[GrossoutShow Gross-Out Shows]], which is really weird.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''
** The 'Creator/{{Disney}} Universe'. That is, until Mort Goldman the Jew shows up, prompting a reaction to the annoyingly persistent rumor of Creator/WaltDisney's anti-semitism.
-->'''Stewie:''' Oh yeah I forgot. This is a Disney universe...
** In the episode "The Former Life of Brian," Brian gushes about his [[spoiler:son]] to extremes. When he finally leaves, Joe remarks to his owner, "Peter, your dog is giving me diabetes."
** Brian as a puppy in "The Man with Two Brians." D'awww~
** Invoked by Tom Tucker when Diane Simmons pretends to act excited and interested by their interns, Meg and Niel.
--> '''Tom''': Don't act any cheerier, Diane, you'll give us all diabetes.
--> '''Diane''': Bite me, Tom!
* Foofy Wuggums, the [[TheWoobie little lost and frightened imaginary friend]] from the ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' TV movie ''Good Wilt Hunting,'' who is a ''pink teddy bear'' who speaks in ''BabyTalk''. Hell, just look at his ''name.'' And it certainly helps (?) that he's voiced by Creator/TaraStrong, the '''Ultimate Mistress of Cuteness.'''
* The Pastoral Symphony segment of ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}''. Rosey-assed cupids, simpering centaurs, and candy-colored satyrs, unicorns, and pegasi bury the viewer under an avalanche of sugar -- Right up until [[MoodWhiplash Zeus shows up and]] [[JerkassGods crashes the party]].
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''
** The opening scene in the episode "A Very Crappy Christmas," where Kyle and Ike wait for Mr. Hankey in the bathroom. They even left out cookies and milk for him [[spoiler: which got eaten by a cockroach.]]
** Parodied and subverted with the episode "Woodland Critter Christmas", where the seemingly-cute forest creatures turn out to be devil-worshipping zealots.
* The "Best Day Ever" song from ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants''.
* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'', where they portrayed ''Creator/EdgarAllanPoe'' of all people as this. It's only until the characters start criticizing his pink cake that he's MaddenedIntoMisanthropy and becomes the poet that history knows him for.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays'', [[EvilTwin Drew Monday]] is very much like this to Zak, when pretending to be his mother. She does later say:
--> "You do ''not'' know how nice it is to not have to pretend to ''care'' about you anymore."
* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' has Rainbow Monkeys, a line of stuffed animals (and also cartoons, cereal, and even an actual species) which in the show represents everything that Tastes Like Diabetes.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ohps2nDs4C0 ARE YOU DYING YET?]]
* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' is very fond of using this trope the same way ''Happy Tree Friends'' does. [[Franchise/MyLittlePony Apocalypse Pony]] anyone?
* The pilot episode of ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' involves a cartoonist trying to come up with a cartoon about rabbits. Prior to creating Buster and Babs Bunny, one of his ideas is a cutesy-talking baby rabbit. He then scraps it, saying it will give the audience cavities.
** Played straight with the recurring character Li'l Sneezer. Ironically, he's basically the above scrapped character (complete with the same voice), but he's a mouse this time.
* Molly Cunningham from ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin''. Especially because they got a real little girl to voice her. Basically, every time she shows up on screen, expect the show to [[{{Anvilicious}} shove her cuteness down your throat]]. [[LittleMissSnarker She even calls HERSELF cute at one point, making her well aware of this trope]].
** WordOfGod says that Molly was written that way in ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'' essentially to offset her mother Rebecca's nagging tendencies towards Baloo, and bring out her softer and often [[MamaBear more protective]] sides.
** Even more so Webigail Vanderquack from ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''. Half her appearances were even accompanied by an [[EarWorm equally cutesy]] {{Leitmotif}}. And unlike Molly, she ''never'' seemed to be deliberately utilizing the trope.
* In ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'', when Henry or June turn the page to ''Life with Loopy'', this is what we expect.....and then we go five seconds into it.
* ''Every''. ''Single''. ''One''. Of the ''[[WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime Land Before Time]]'' sequels. In stark contrast to the original film.
** But ''especially'' the last one, ''Wisdom of Friends''. Which is saying something!
** ''The Secret of Nimh 2'' and the ''American Tail'' sequels are just as guilty of tasting like diabetes, especially when compared to their predecessors!
* We have this line from ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'':
--> '''Agnes:''' It's so fluffy I'm gonna die!
* Lady Rainicorn from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' looks like a [[http://i35.tinypic.com/3518pkx.jpg toy]] but is really a BadassAdorable.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''
** In the episode "Lethal Inspection," we get [[http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l6196q7D251qa619oo1_400.jpg baby Bender.]]
** Lampooned mercilessly in the episode "Love and Rocket," and summed up nicely by Lrrr (Ruler of Omicron Perseii 8):
--->"This notion of 'wuv' confuses and infuriates us!"
*** And from the same episode, the Lovey Bears.
** An AffectionateParody comes from "Saturday Morning Fun Pit" in the form of "Purpleberry Pond".
* Many of Creator/ChuckJones's pre-''WesternAnimation/TheDoverBoys'' shorts such as the Sniffles series.
** And of course there's his little penguin, who brings out rare protective reactions from WesternAnimation/BugsBunny, quite against his will.
** His 1950's cartoons with Pussyfoot (''WesternAnimation/FeedTheKitty'', ''Kiss Me Cat'', etc.), however, beautifully avert this. They're adorable, to be sure. But their witty writing and excellent plots keep them from falling into this trope.
* ''WesternAnimation/RoliePolieOlie''
* Parodied in the extreme in 'The Vampire Strikes Back' episode of ''WesternAnimation/CountDuckula'' where they visit the Planet Cute.
** Planet Cute returns in fellow Creator/CosgroveHall production ''WesternAnimation/AvengerPenguins'', where it is villain Caractacus P. Doom's worst nightmare.
* Hasbro's ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' cartoons are famous and notorious for this, but reality is a bit murkier...
** The original 1980's cartoons had this to an extent (lord knows the theme songs did), at least until the villains showed up. TheMovie was probably the most diabetes-laden part of G1, even with the villains.
** Played straight in some episodes of ''MyLittlePonyTales''.
** [[InkStainAdaptation It's mostly in the Direct-to-Video Generation 3 (early 2000's) that the My Little Pony cartoons acquired the reputation for tasting like diabetes]]. Unlike previous generations (and the following one), the average G3 plot involves [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal pretty ponies planning parties]]. This got taken UpToEleven when the already-cute characters were {{retool}}ed into the "Animesque" style fans dubbed "G3.5". But even ''that'' era had its share of adventuring. Basically, this whole franchise falls under the same category as PoundPuppies - it isn't ever as pure sugar as its ad campaign suggests.
*** Unintentionally subverted with one specific part of G3.5, ''Newborn Cuties'', and not in a good way. They obviously ''try'' to go for this, but instead, the peculiar art style and poor animation leaves the "cuties" looking very unsettling. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7ljjOTbLjg Behold.]]
** ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', in direct response to the previous generation, largely averts this. However, it does like to play with the trope: [[ShrinkingViolet Fluttershy's]] bashfulness is a source of much humour on the show, while [[KidAppealCharacter Apple Bloom's]] cuteness is counterbalanced by her forceful and outgoing personality, as seen in her overbearing sales pitch for the family apple stand in "Call of the Cutie". Meanwhile, [[GenkiGirl Pinkie Pie]] is... ''[[CrazyAwesome different]]''.
*** Sweetie Belle, however, is occasionally a good source of this trope played straight. The actress's voice-cracks are a large part of the reason why.
*** Played straight but mocked in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E23TheCutieMarkChronicles The Cutie Mark Chronicles]]," where the excessively sweet story is deflated by Scootaloo's mockery. Spike gets in on the mockery too when he comments on Twilight's unusually corny friendship letter.
*** Also {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E17HeartsAndHoovesDay Hearts and Hooves Day]]," where Cherilee and Big Macintosh drink a love potion that makes them SickeninglySweethearts. Even the Cutie Mark Crusaders are weirded out by how lovey-dovey they act.
*** In fact, the show subverts this trope from the very start with a TitleSequence that initially begins with the standard treacly melody (still used to this day in the commercials)... until it explodes into a rock tune utilizing the sequence's fast cutting, making it clear that this incarnation is under new management.
* The later seasons of ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'', particularly the ones with Dil and Kimi.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vndnx_QCUfk This promo]] for the show both plays straight and subverts this trope.
* The direct-to-video and DVD ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' special "All Growed Down," with the main six as kindergarteners.
* The Land Of Dreams in ''WesternAnimation/TheDreamstone'' is a high octane example, especially with the Noops, Rufus and Amberley. The place is perpetually cheery and cutesy, and the show's trademark slapstick violence tends to downgrade heavily whenever the town is the main focus, especially during early seasons.
* Ed Otter from ''WesternAnimation/BrandyAndMrWhiskers'' when he tells that Dougie the turtle story: "It was a misty morning in the amazon, much like today, and Dougie the turtle was wondering why his shell was so hard while his heart was so soft. Oh whiskers, you had never seen colors so bright and pretty. Dougie knew right away that this was a very special cesspool. And so the happy magic piggies laughed and danced and played until the wee-wee hours of the morning. The end!"
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb''
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QcOS-4vAUk Melissa.]]
** PlayedForLaughs and exploited in the episode, "Meapless In Seattle". In it, we learn that Meap's planet is dominated by cuteness to the point that it’s almost a sugar rush for your brain. The entire plot is to obtain the substance [[AppliedPhlebotinum Cutonium]]. Mitch tries to take it to become irresistibly cute and, by effect obtain total power. [[spoiler: Mitch and Dr. Doofenshmirtz both end up taking it and transform into some of the most utterly cute and diabetic things on the show.]] This was likely meant to be a parody of the various other examples on this page.
** [[VocalDissonance If the war song on Meap's planet is anything to go by,]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhL5EiK7_Kc then yes, yes it is.]]
** Also the song "Sunshine and Bubble Gum" from the episode "A Real Boy." Not played seriously, and with a slight twist at the end of the lyrics:
-->'''Singer:''' If you're worried 'bout the sound, you can always scream into a pillow...
* ''WesternAnimation/KryptoTheSuperdog'' has kittens and puppies galore and every one of them will are melt-your-face cute.
* ''WesternAnimation/PuppyInMyPocketAdventuresInPocketville'': "Let the spirit of the friendship heart light the way the the magic fountain." The animal designs are this even more - even the bad guys are ridiculously cute!
* (usually) Subverted by Bubbles Utonium on ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''. She can induce diabetes in one moment then kick as much ass as her sisters the next.
* ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' has the prison of Lightrock expose the inmates to great amounts of cuteness to bring them to reform. It got mixed results with the Trix: while in prison they swore to be even more evil once they were out, but when they were about to be brought back in two seasons after breaking out they were ''absolutely terrified'' of being imprisoned there again.
* Roll had this reaction in the WesternAnimation/MegaMan cartoon to a park attendant's overly sugary demeanor and voice.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''
** Mindy. Between "Wakko's Wish" and the Buttons and Mindy episode "Mindy in Wonderland," one could vomit from the sugar overdose. Especially with the line "Fuzzy Bunny," and, "'kay I love you bye bye."
** Dot. The song "I'm Cute" draws this reaction from Yakko and Wakko as Dot sings about how cute she is.
** A later episode has The Warners forced to see The Snugglers by the censors after the kids gave Attila The Hun a perm.
** "Baloney And Kids" parodies this with the namesake Barney clone.
* Lampshaded in ''WesternAnimation/{{Fillmore}}''; Fillmore and Ingrid need to speak to a store manager regarding a case but they are delayed by a masked assailant. By the time the get to the store, it's closed for the day. Ingrid, the team {{Goth}}, acts like a cherubic waif to convince the store owner to talk to them.
-->'''Ingrid''': Stand back, I'm going to have to use my cute face. It won't be pretty.
--->(later)
-->'''Fillmore''': You really took one for the team, Ingrid.
* The "[[ShowWithinAShow Animal Friends]]" children's show in ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan''. The characters also speak in ElmuhFuddSyndwome.
* Many of the Creator/HarmanAndIsing cartoons had a tendency for this when the duo moved to MGM.
* Along the same lines, one of Creator/TexAvery's earliest [[WesternAnimation/TexAveryMGMCartoons cartoons for MGM]], "Screwball Squirrel", deliberately started out this way with a cute Harman-Ising-type squirrel named Sammy. However, [[TakeThat it is all a set-up for a very rollicking cartoon that deliberately takes jabs at this trope]]. At the end of the cartoon:
-->'''Sammy''': My cartoon would have been cuter.\\
'''ScrewySquirrel, Meathead, and their OffScreenTeleportation doubles''': Oh, brother! NOT THAT!\\
''(they all [[BigBallOfViolence descend on Sammy and beat the crap out of him]])''
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gumby}}'' could be this on occasion.
* ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends''.
** Parodied in an episode when Garfield wakes up and finds himself in a Franchise/{{Transformers}}-like action/adventure cartoon. He eventually manages to escape from this cartoon, only to wind up in a cartoon that is totally this trope. Naturally, he finds himself running back to the prior cartoon.
** Also the sickeningly cute Nermal. Yeah, the one Garfield is constantly trying to ship off to AbuDhabi.
* The "Buddy" series of ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' shorts in the 1930's were ''definitely'' this in many instances.
* ''WesternAnimation/DanielTigersNeighborhood'': Daniel's pure concentrated cuteness should be illegal in 50 states. Actually, the whole show is pretty saccharine.
* In ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'', whenever Jack Spicer enters the Ying Yang World and comes out good, he is this trope UpToEleven. The monks like him even less than they do when he's normal.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', the ditzy main character Mabel eats a ''very'' volatile sugar snack that causes her to hallucinate that she's in a Lisa Frank parody world, complete with rainbow backgrounds and giant puppies modeled after Lisa Frank's work. There's also a dolphin with quadrupled arms with faces at each end which shoot colorful beams.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'', when Raven is accidentally [[LiteralSplitPersonality split into 5 different versions of herself via personality]]. Beast Boy and Cyborg volunteer to go after the happy one. When they do, The three titans engage in what can only be described as this trope in spades.
* ''WesternAnimation/PBAndJOtter''. And how! Nonetheless, this one has grown a notable fanbase, to the point that it was ressurected due to fan outrage.
* ''WesternAnimation/BabyLooneyTunes''. Suffers from both PeripheryHatedom and FanonDiscontinuity.
* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'': Chris [=McLean=] has a volatile hatred for gushy nice things and an obsession with drama. Heather and Alejandro acting like SickeningSweethearts freaked him out so much that he changed the rules to get them to turn on each other just so they would ''stop''. He also hated Ella for all her singing.

* Daria [=McGrain's=] artwork mostly shows this trope, but that doesn't excuse the fact that nearly all of her artwork is definitely NSFW.
* Shimejis are those cute little desktop mascots that run around your screen being practically useless, but utterly adorable. Some of the cutest ones include Pokemon, Homestuck, Hetalia, and etc.
* You would NOT expect to find this trope in Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles especially not in the 2003 incarnation...But the way the Turtle Toddlers are drawn in episodes like Father and Sons, was just to sickeningly cute for some viewers to stand, baby mutant turtles should not have chipmunk like buck teeth dammit!

* Creator/AnneGeddes ' baby pictures.
* The streetcar system in Würzburg, Germany has a chorus of little kids announcing the next stop. Downright creepy, not to mention rather difficult for non-native speakers to understand.
* The Japanese street fashion [[ElegantGothicLolita Lolita]] has a crazy lovechild between Sweet Lolita and Decora; [[http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_kxgdd7Hr761qa20ryo1_400.jpg OTT Sweet Lolita.]]
* Ride/DisneyThemeParks are full of this. It's a Small World is the most famous example, but the general "heartwarming and magical" aesthetic of parades, live shows, and so on can be wearying after a while, even for fans of the characters being featured. Even the most adult-oriented of the parks, Epcot in Florida, is occasionally prone to a little ''too'' much sugar making the {{Edutainment|Show}} go down, though it likely was a lot worse when the park opened (think songs like "It's Fun to Be Free", "Making Memories", "Tomorrow's Child", etc.).
