->''"I should have known! You stole my life AND ruined my home! That's it! You and me, Mouse! Right now, c'mon! I've been waiting for this for years! This is gonna be my moment!"''
-->-- '''[[VillainousBreakdown Oswald]]''' when MickeyMouse reveals to him that ''[[NiceJobBreakingItHero he]]'' was the reason [[VideoGame/EpicMickey Wasteland]] [[CrapsackWorld became what it is.]]

Even cartoons have [[TheWoobie characters who desperately need a hug.]]

!!Shows with their own pages:
* ''Woobie/GravityFalls''
* ''Woobie/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''
* ''Woobie/SamuraiJack''
* ''Woobie/TheSimpsons''
* ''Woobie/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil''
* ''Woobie/StevenUniverse''
* ''Woobie/TotalDrama''
** ''Woobie/TotalDramaPresentsTheRidonculousRace''

!!Other examples:

* ''Series/AceLightning'' - the title character has his moments (what with discovering he's really a videogame character and everything he thought was real is nothing more than an elaborate plaything for kids, you can't blame him), as does his human "sidekick", Mark.
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'':
** Finn, for all his [[{{Keet}} optimism]] and [[{{Determinator}} determination]] is a very sympathetic character. As a baby, he was abandoned and sat in his own ''crap'' for three days until somebody saved him! Not to mention he is apparently the [[LastOfHisKind last known human alive]], his parents are dead (at least his mother as of the end of Season 5), and he's had his [[LoveHurts little heart broken so many times now]] that it's a wonder he hasn't pulled a FaceHeelTurn yet out of sheer angst. Not to mention the huge responsibility he has as the champion of all of Ooo.
** The Ice King definitely is a Woobie (or at least a JerkassWoobie). He's lived for hundreds of years ''alone'', getting excited about any type of company but still being too incompetent to know how to handle social interactions. He's driven to kidnapping by this neglected need for companionship, and no one ever bothers to try and help him. [[spoiler: Simon Petrikov, also known as the Ice King before receiving his title was a completely normal, intelligent, and successful human being, And then upon purchasing an old crown to study, his life is unexpectedly changed forever when he loses control of his actions (driving away his beloved "princess" fiance) and sees illusory visions as a result of wearing what turned out to be an evil, magical crown. Once his transformation is complete and his mind is essentially gone, ''cue the afoementioned centuries of loneliness'', and all the while all that's left of Simon is a vain desire to be with his "princess."]]
** Princess Bubblegum is also a very sympathetic character in her own right. She has the huge responsibility of ruling over the whole Candy Kingdom and making sure her citizens are safe from all the calamities that tend to occur on a frequent basis, which leaves her with no time for a personal life. She also has to stay vigilante in trying not to get kidnapped by the Ice King. She was also [[DemonicPossession possessed]] and nearly killed by The Lich, and exhibits many signs of having post-traumatic stress disorder from this, and behind her peppy smile and scientific curiosity lies a crippling fear of dying and leaving her beloved kingdom and subjects under the awful leadership of Lemongrab. And while her treatment of Lemongrab was morally questionable until "You Made Me" showed she ''does'' regret how her mishandling the situation caused his misery, Lemongrab and his clone are shown to shamelessly [[NeverMyFault blame Princess Bubblegum for every problem]] that they encounter in their lives, and most of the time, she is not even at any fault. This woman lives an exceedingly stressful, and sometimes thankless, life of caring for so many people. Bubblegum has also [[spoiler: been revealed to be [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld several centuries old]], meaning she's likely outlived many of her old friends. On top of that, Lemongrab, the kinda-sorta son that she tried to fix bridges with, went ''completely'' off the deep end, and if "We Fixed a Truck" and "Apple Wedding" are of any indication, it doesn't seem like people really respect her either.]] This poor girl needs a break.
** Marceline, especially knowing of her [[spoiler: harsh childhood as a survivor of the Great Mushroom War. To wit, her mother died (either from natural causes or during [[WorldWarThree the Mushroom War]]). Her biological father is {{Satan}} (or the [[{{Expy}} closest thing thereto]]) who [[ParentalAbandonment was absent for most of her childhood]] and ate her fries when she was a teenager. [[FunnyAneurysmMoment And yes, that IS worse than it sounds]] - said fries were the only food in the area and her father [[CompleteImmortality didn't need them]]. Her [[HappilyAdopted adoptive father]] was a wonderful, caring man who ''[[SanitySlippage lost his mind]]'' and now doesn't even recognize her. Her only known boyfriend was [[DomesticAbuse a bastard]] who sold her TragicKeepsake, and something happened [[HoYay between her and Princess Bubblegum]] that [[LoveHurts ended badly]]. It's not surprising she's [[ChaoticNeutral not exactly "good"]] or [[{{Tsundere}} eager to make friends]] after all that...]]
* Zach and Annie from ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresFromTheBookOfVirtues''. Even if they care about everything, they always get so disappointed upon having issues with other children and their parents, ultimately fail at something they tried to study, and sometimes [[VitriolicBestBuds have arguments with each other]], especially at the beginning of each episode. They learn to get much better in the end.
* You could say Klaus from ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' is a woobie sometimes due to his desperation for attention, especially since he was once a human being before the CIA switched his brain with a goldfish.
** Also, Steve, generally. Although his characterization changes often, most of the time he just wants to please his father through various feats, most of which are ineffective.
** Roger can also be considered to be a JerkassWoobie. First off, he gets sent to Earth as a crash test dummy by his own species who lie to him about his purpose on heading to Earth. He also sometimes gets beaten up by Stan or other people even at times when Roger didn't really deserve it. He can also be fully sympathized after he gets a stress induced heart attack from working too hard in his bar and he's forced to sell it.
** Stan Smith can also be a woobie in his own right. His father unexpectedly left him and his mom when Stan was eight years old and his mom constantly dated other men. His upbringing into the CIA has also placed him in many dangerous situations.
* Rose from ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong'' is probably the closest thing to a Woobie in the series. She was kidnapped at birth by the Huntsclan because she was born with a birthmark that makes her a born slayer, was told by the Huntsclan that her parents died and that they adopted her, all while being brainwashed into believing that magical creatures are "sick and nasty". [[LoveRedeems Fortunately, Jake enters her life]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'':
** Buttons. [[BadlyBatteredBabysitter Regularly subjected to heavy comic violence to keep Mindy safe]], he is inevitably scolded by his owners at the end for some minor offense. In the end he is offered Mindy's affection (typically a hug and, "Silly puppy!") for his deeds.
** Rita the Cat, due to most of her misfortunes being based on [[DudeNotFunny unfairness and inequality]].
* Woodhouse on ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}''. Despite saving Archer within hours of his birth, raising him for 5 years by himself and caring for him ever since then, Malory and Archer treat the old man like garbage every chance they get. Archer even discourages his guests from treating Woodhouse with kindness, lest he come to expect it.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** Aang, the current [[MessianicArchetype Avatar]] was told he was the Avatar four years early because a war was coming, was ignored by almost everyone he knew afterwards save for his teacher and pet, ran away when he found out he was going to be sent away from said teacher, and was frozen for a hundred years. After he gets out, he finds out that '''''his entire culture and people''''' [[KillEmAll have been destroyed]] by the power-mad BiggerBad 100 years ago, and that of everyone he has ever known and loved, the only ones remaining are a childhood friend over 100 by this point, and aforementioned pet.
** [[AntiVillain Zuko]], Aang's enemy for much of the show, was consistently denied approval by his father, had his mother leave him at a young age, which she did because [[spoiler:she had just killed his grandfather to save his life]], and at the age of thirteen, was exiled and ''burned by his father'' for protesting against a plan that would use an huge number of troops for a WeHaveReserves tactic that would likely get them all killed, and sent on a SnipeHunt to regain his honor.
* Poor little Shifty Dingo from ''WesternAnimation/BlinkyBill''. One of the sweetest, clumsiest, most timid residents of Greenpatch and he always gets treated badly just cause he's a dingo. He is constantly bullied by Marcia and shunned by many adults and really really REALLY needs a big hug to make him feel all better. And then of course, you have Nutsy who lost her mother.
%% * Tina from ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers''. Thankfully, the autism joke about her was abandoned after episode one.
* The title character of ''WesternAnimation/{{Bonkers}}'' tries so hard to be a good cop yet is often underestimated due to his eccentric behavior and being a toon. He's very sensitive and cries easily. In the pilot episode, he was pretty much kicked out on the street. His HeroicBsod in New Partners On The Block when he thinks Lucky is dead and bawls his heart out several times is enough to earn him sympathy from the audience. Despite his cheerful personality, he's one bobcat in need of a warm hug and some cuddles.
* Jazmine in ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' TV series - a WideEyedIdealist embodiment of ChildrenAreInnocent surrounded by BlackAndGreyMorality characters who are all full-time cynics prone to {{Cluster F Bomb}}s. The time she set up a lemonade stand during a heatwave only to be incorporated and then screwed over by CorruptCorporateExecutive Ed Wuncler is the foremost example though.
* ''Everyone'' except Margo in ''WesternAnimation/BrandyAndMrWhiskers''. ESPECIALLY Ed Otter and Lola Boa. In one episode Ed even stated "I cannot see your face, stranger for I must hide my own in disgrace but if you have come from distant lands, feel free to ridicule me as you would your own" after being embarassed by having whipped cream on him. In another episode, Brandy cuts Ed from the coco ball team. His reaction? Silent, painful tears. And let's not forget the episode where Mr.Whiskers verbally abused Ed and made him cry when all Ed wanted to do was help. Lola Boa has very low self-esteem, too. Also, both Brandy and Gaspar count as Jerkass Woobies. Brandy has trouble adjusting to jungle life, being all pampered and Mr.Whiskers practically drives her crazy.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Bubsy}}'': Arnold the Armadillo. He's supposed to be a ButtMonkey, but comes across as sympathetic because he does nothing to deserve the abuse he goes through, which includes being thrown around against his will, crashing through a roof, getting beaten over the head and getting electrocuted. His only "crime" is not liking Bubsy and his cousins, which seems perfectly justified because they're jerks and responsible for much of the aforementioned abuse. He's also extremely afraid of trucks to the point where it looks like the show wants you to laugh of a mental disorder.
* Max from ''WesternAnimation/CapitolCritters'' is a sweet, adorable little mouse with PuppyDogEyes. In the first episode, he watches his family die from exterminators and he goes to live with his cousin in the white house. Exterminators arrive again and he has a PTSD flashback. In another episode, he falls in love with a girl mouse and saves her from a cat but feels awful and breaks down in tears when he thinks he killed the cat and in another episode, he is nearly murdered by a gang member who forces caffine pills down his throat causing him to become unconcious. And despite all these horrible things happening to him, he's easily the nicest character on the show. Poor little guy needs a BIG hug.
* Oopsy was designed to be the designated woobie of ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresInCareALot''. Unfortunately, it only resulted in a BrokenBase- some fans really do find Oopsy adorable and wants to cuddle him all the time, others really hated him with a passion and want him removed from the series.
* Dog from ''WesternAnimation/CatDog''. While most of the time, he's a cheerful and happy go lucky sort of guy, whenever he gets hit with BreakTheCutie, he gets hit. Hard. He's been laughed at by the entire town of Nearberg for being a failure hero (Dog The Mighty), worked to the point of hypothermia in a sled dog race (Mush Dog Mush), almost sold off as a freak show attraction by his own brother after contacting a disease (Dog's Strange Condition), bullied by mailmen while in a depressed state (Fistful Of Mail), driven to the brink of paranoia (Safety Dog), spent an entire episode thinking he was allergic to his own brother (Sneezy Dog) and has been cheated and lied to several times by his own brother. He also came dangerously close to crossing the DespairEventHorizon in the Great Parents Mystery special. Basically, any time Dog looks emotionally hurt or starts shedding tears, it's enough to just want to reach into your screen and cuddle the poor pooch to make him his happy self again. Someone, please give poor Dog a hug!
* Flash The Wonder Dog from ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers''. He may be a oneshot character but he most definitely deserves a big hug. Basically, Flash is a LovableCoward and NervousWreck of an actor who is framed of several crimes by Fat Cat all because he's a dog. Worse yet, there is a scene where people try to chase him off because they think he's the one who committed a wave of crimes. On top of all this, he feels very guilty over breaking Dale's heart with the fact that he's just an actor and not actually a hero.
* Eugene, a one shot skunk character from the ''WesternAnimation/ChucklewoodCritters'' episode "Scenter Of Attention" IS this trope. First a wildfire forces him to evacuate his home then he starts crying cause he misses his parents then he stinks up everyone's homes by accident and feels terrible about it. On top of that, he's a ShrinkingViolet who speaks in a really soft-spoken southern accent. That episode is just pure TearJerker.
* Kam and Philly Phil from ''WesternAnimation/ClassOf3000'' have their moments. Kam, the lighter example by virtue of being the resident ButtMonkey and his [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold more abrasive personality]], is often ignored, even as the voice of reason. His sympathetic side is in full force in [[DayInTheLimelight Kam Inc.]], where, after falling in love with a girl, starts his own company to impress her as a self-made man, nearly costs him his friendship with Eddie. Philly Phil, meanwhile, despite his overall happy personality, [[StepfordSmiler hides a number of insecurities]] in regards to his social status.
* Cleveland Jr. from ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'' and ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. Once a fast, hyper kid, he is now slow, fat, and speaks in a calm sounding voice. He is totally broken up by his parents' divorce and became SuperOCD as a result (that was later fixed) and his belief that God would never forgive his mom for cheating on his dad turned him into a non-theist.
* Al Capone in "The Clownfather" takes up the clown trade (and forces his underlings to do so too) to prevent any clowns from ruining the birthday of his son or any other children, after a clown ruined his fifth birthday. Tuddrussel weeps after hearing his story.
* Jerry in ''WesternAnimation/CodeMonkeys'' has to put up with all kinds of crap that would probably [[DrivenToSuicide drive a lesser person to want to kill himself]]. Of course, being a BlackComedy, it doesn't look like things are going to get much easier for the poor guy.
* ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'': Courage. His parents got blasted to the moon by a cruel veterinarian, he takes a lot of crap from the other villains, and on top of all that, he is undeservedly abused by a cruel, {{Jerkass}} farmer who [[UngratefulBastard doesn't respect him the slightest bit despite the fact that the dog goes through all the trouble to save the old man's life]], along with his more kindhearted wife who actually adores Courage. If that isn't enough, the cruel farmer even went so far to hire Courage's old villains to ''kill'' him and enjoyed seeing the dog suffer sadistic pain. You just can't help but feel sorry for the poor dog for all he's been through.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Cyberchase}}'': Delete. Even though he's one of Hacker's henchmen, he's simply just too much of a KindheartedSimpleton to even be a JerkassWoobie. Just watch "The Fairy Borg Father" and chances are high you'll want to reach into your screen and cuddle the poor robot.
* WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck, from the WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts, may be THE Disney ChewToy...Yet some fans do feel for him greatly, mostly because in quite a number of the shorts his bad luck is there...because it has to be. In the comics by Creator/CarlBarks you even feel more sympathy towards Donald.
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'':
** [[OppositeSexClone Danielle]] has lived in a world where she thought Vlad adored her like a daughter only to find out she was nothing but an inferior tool for his ''true'' goals (creating a perfect clone of Danny). Then she's on the run for the better part of a season, knowing she could melt into ectoplasm at any time. Valerie then proceeds to trick her, and despite being cured, and returning to help Danny, she's still left on the run. How could you ''not'' just want to hug her?
** Being half ghost, Danny is stuck at a cross point where both humans and ghosts would shun him for his freakish state. Not to mention for a season and a half, Danny is either ignored or insulted by nearly everyone outside of his closest companions and settled with the responsibility to save his hometown on a constant basis despite the [[HeroWithBadPublicity community viewing him as nothing but their most hated enemy]]. This is truly one of those EarnYourHappyEnding thing that Danny went to get where he is now.
** Vlad in AlasPoorVillain fashion. By the end, Vlad realizes all the evil he's done, but it's too late for him to repent. [[spoiler: After years of fearing loneliness, he has the cold, dark depths of space staring back at him]]. Cue upside down smile. Not only that, but the last few minutes of the episode consist of [[spoiler: his getting smashed into by a giant meteor.]]
** Somehow, Dark Danny gets this, not so much from canon itself, but from the fandom. Fans tend to forget he's a mass murderer, has wasted what is implied to be a good chunk of the Earth, and has crippled/completely ruined several ghosts, and instead focus on the tragedy of the Nasty Burger accident before he became an AxCrazy maniac, trying to sympathize and justify his actions through his mourning.
* [[StockNessMonster Nessie]] from the Disney animated short, 'The Ballad of Nessie''. She was forced from her home pond by a land developer and constantly gets kicked out of the places she finds, all the while fighting back the urge to cry because everyone keeps telling her not to until she finally breaks down bawling like a baby. [[spoiler:Which actually solves her problem, because her tears create a nice new pond for her to live in.]]
* Sancho Panda from ''WesternAnimation/DonCoyoteAndSanchoPanda'', mainly due to being a {{Moe}} sidekick and a ButtMonkey.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'''s constant teasing, awkward shyness, and fears that he won't fit in with everyone else makes you feel sorry for him.
* ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales'':
** Zak, who must constantly endure his sister Wheezie's wild behavior- because they're a two-headed dragon. He also seems to be the show's target for comic abuse from any of a number of avenues.
** Also Cassie, due to her shyness and inability to easily speak up. Plus, even on the very rare occasions where she gets jealous, it's hard to lose sympathy for her.
* Frizz and Nug of ''WesternAnimation/TheDreamstone''. Compared to [[BigBad Zordrak]] or peers such as [[MadScientist Urpgor]] and [[DrillSergeantNasty Sgt Blob]] (who themselves are pretty valid {{Jerkass Woobie}}s), these two Urpneys are [[MinionWithAnFInEvil cowardly idiots who have little interest in giving the Sleeping World nightmares]] and are often sent kicking and screaming into an upteenth dangerous mission to steal the Dreamstone, with threat of death otherwise. This is often treated with complete apathy from the heroes (par [[CheerfulChild Spildit]] on occasion), [[GuiltByAssociationGag who treat them as any villain]] and [[HumiliationConga punish them mercilessly]], with another CoolAndUnusualPunishment from Zordrak often awaiting them at home. It's not hard to end up actually [[RootingForTheEmpire rooting for them]] to win after only a few episodes.
* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales1987'':
** Webby. Even though the boys allow her around and demonstrate that they really do care about her (sometimes), they often brush her off when she wants to join their project-of-the-week.
** Fenton Crackshell was extraordinarily good at counting, and he did become the super hero Gizmoduck. But he also had a big case of bad luck and a tendency to screw things up, and he was beaten up by the Beagles ''four times'' in one episode alone. And he lived with his trailer trash mother, who would often care more about watching TV than listening to what her only son had to say. Not to mention that he was stuck with dating Gandra Dee, who often was ungrateful or cold-hearted towards him. Of course, we're still talking about a relatively light-hearted cartoon, and plenty of this was played for laughs. But the poor guy deserved all of the breaks that he could ever catch...
** The show carefully avoids drawing attention to this, but Huey, Dewey, and Louie were already orphaned by their biological parents (the original 1930s cartoons show them abandoned on Donald's doorstep) when Donald decides to up and abandon them to his elderly, initially uncaring uncle to pursue a career in the navy. Glimpses of the future suggest that he never returns to them, and over time he stops being mentioned at all. Luckily Scrooge quickly warms to them and does his level best to be a good caregiver, but still, that's a pretty sad back story.
** Doofus Drake. While he's typically used as comic relief, what the show reveals about his life isn't very positive. On top of being saddled with a cruel name, he's bullied at school by the Beagle Boys' younger brother and out of it by the Junior Woodchucks. Even Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webby aren't above taking digs at him and [[TheFriendNobodyLikes don't seem to really like him]], despite letting him hang around.
* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017'' brings DonaldDuck back into the main cast and gives him a role similar to his comic book counterpart, being a very caring father yet still has to deal with [[BornUnlucky that awful luck of his]]. He ends up finding himself in a lot of trouble, and humiliated constantly, especially compared to his [[BornLucky cousin who gets everything he wants]]. [[spoiler: Doesn't help that the main reason he quit adventuring was because he lost his sister on an adventure, causing Donald and his Uncle Scrooge to split.]] It's a good thing he's [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass shockingly skilled]] and [[{{Determinator}} has an absurd amount of determination]] or else nothing would go right for this guy.
* Peter Puppy from the ''WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim'' cartoon. He was picked on by all the neighborhood dogs for being a coward and then he finally faced his fear of the vacuum and got cursed with the ability to transform into a monster when upset. In the pilot episode, he was shown bawling his eyes out, begging for Jim not to leave him. Watch "The Origin Of Peter Puppy", then watch "Sidekicked". If you don't have the urge to just give the poor puppy a hug after that, you've got no soul.
* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' has a few, including the Eds for starters:
** Ed has to put up with his little sister's crap. He also has to deal with a father who doesn't give a care about him, and a [[AbusiveParents mother]] who spoils said little sister rotten while treating Ed like crap. Not only that, but despite Ed being clearly too dumb to tell the difference between right and wrong, his mother still punishes him just for being too loyal a friend to not go along with Eddy's scams. Meanwhile, she lets [[JerkAss Sarah]], who routinely beats up other kids, including Ed himself, get off [[KarmaHoudini scot free]].
** Edd, compared to the other two Eds, is polite, meek and sensitive, but [[NoRespectGuy usually suffers no less]]. Although his parents seem to be relatively normal, they're never there for him, communicating exclusively through sticky notes and leaving him to do all the houserwork while they're off doing their jobs, presumably. He is also often given penalties along with Ed and Eddy, even if he hasn't done a damn thing to deserve it! In the movie, [[spoiler: he finally snaps because of it, only remaining with them because...]]
** [[spoiler: Eddy himself]] is revealed to be one in ''The Big Picture Show''. As it turns out, [[spoiler:Eddy's father is a used car salesman and a bad example, his mother seems to be completely unable to do anything, and Eddy's [[BigBrotherBully brother]] is a total bastard who beat up Eddy just for fun for his '''entire life'''. And his parents did ''nothing'' to stop him.]]
** Jimmy, the youngest, most delicate and sensitive character, is the biggest ButtMonkey and slapstick magnet on the show and also gets a few BreakTheCutie moments.
** All three of the Kankers could fall into this. Yes, they are temperamental, possessive, rude and unhygienic, but there have been moments that show they DO care for each other. They have barely any physical traits in common and it's heavily implied their mother ReallyGetsAround and they have three different Dads who aren't around anymore, so as such they latched on to the Eds because that's all they know how to do. Notably, after spending most of the series violently pursuing, the Movie shows them actually doing their best to protect the Eds from the wrath of the rest of the Cul-de-sac; it can be inferred that dubious ways of going about it, they do genuinely have feelings for the Eds.
* Kariel from ''WesternAnimation/ElArca''. She indirectly killed four characters ([[SelfMadeOrphan her parents, her sister]],[[AMillionIsAStatistic a hippo]]) and is mistreated by Xiro.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents''.
** Tootie has the world's most sadistic babysitter as a big sister and fails to win the boy she loves, plus is bottom of the barrel on the social ladder and, unlike Timmy, seems to have no friends outside the Cream Puffs, who seem unwilling to even attend her birthday party.
** Timmy. ParentalNeglect, sadistic babysitter, villainous teacher (who despite his ineptitude would be a more nurturing parent than Timmy's own), constantly belittled for his appearance, and let's not forget the small fact that he was shown with explicit detail how [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop pretty much the entire world would be far better off without him]], which was reality essentially giving him a ReasonYouSuckSpeech. How could you NOT want to hug the poor little guy and just make everything better?
** Cosmo and Timmy's Dad, especially in recent episodes when they're not being Bumbling Dads to Timmy. Dad's reaction to getting fired by his own son in one episode is heart-wrenching, despite all those times he's lied and neglected Timmy. Plus it's good to know that Timmy's Dad wasn't always neglectful and it was his wife and Vicky's fault that he ended up being one. Cosmo is a MommasBoy, can't do anything without Wanda, and is supposedly extremely stupid (in the earlier seasons, he was at the very least sensible, but later seasons play on his lethal stupidity) not to mention abused by his mom, Jorgen Von Strangle, and even Timmy and Wanda on occasion. You've got to feel sorry for both of them.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'':
** Meg Griffin. There are dozens upon dozens of examples of abuse being heaped on Meg. Apparently, the writers think it's funny. Not to mention many of the fans also consider it funny, too.
** [[BrokenBird Brenda Quagmire]]. Abused by her jerkass boyfriend Jeff and has to constantly live in denial with the abuse. The abuse was so bad, that Joe agreed with Peter and Quagmire to kill him. Could you imagine if Brenda actually went through with marrying him?
** Death, is this and a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds. The poor guy is [[EveryoneHatesHades despised and treated like shit by everyone for doing his job]] and can't form a good human relationship. Even [[{{Jerkass}} Peter]] takes pity on him.
** Hell, even ‘’Glenn Quagmire’’ himself, as he was revealed to have been born nine times and a lot of his childhood was constantly being structured by his mother's promiscuous lifestyle, which in turn molded him into the promiscuous man that he is today. Having to deal with the fact that his sister constantly got abused by her boyfriend got Quagmire into dark levels and he was married twice with the first ending tragically with his first wife.
%% * Felicity from ''WesternAnimation/{{Felidae}}''.
* ''WesternAnimation/ForestFriends'': Leon the hungry wolf, a one shot character from his self-titled episode. He was separated from his parents and is cold, lost, scared, alone and hungry. When he arrives in the village, most of the adults shun him just because he is a wolf. He even overhears the adults spreading rumors about how he ate the rabbit twins so he storms off in tears and becomes stranded on an island on a frozen river until he finally gets rescued.His shyness, soft-spoken voice and street urchin look just add to his woobiness.
* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends''
** Wilt, badly injured in the past and then abandoned by his creator, he does his best to help out everyone with a smile, often with little or no thanks--partially because he's desperate for approval. His {{Catch Phrase}}s are "I'm sorry!" and "Is that okay?"
** Frankie. That poor girl puts up with loads of crap that would drive a lesser person to complete insanity. Her "Woobie" status rises to an extreme in the episode, "Imposter's Home for Um...Make 'Em Up Pals", where an "imaginary friend" comes in and looks like he's obviously a human with a rubber nose. She has to do everything for him. What makes it worse [[spoiler:is that at the end, the imaginary friend turns out to be real.]]
** Mac is occasionally on the receiving end of some pretty major torment. His mom is hardly around, his older brother constantly beats him up, his dad never makes an appearence (WordOfGod says he's dead), his imaginary friend is a [[JerkAss Jerk Wad]], and he doesn't have any real friends (besides Frankie and Goo). If he was an imaginary friend and was up for adoption, he needs to be adopted quickly.
** World, the toy box friend from the special, Destination Imagination, is probably the biggest woobie in the show. Having been separated from his creator by the kid's parents, all his time spent alone has driven him nearly insane. When the other characters try to take Frankie from his imaginary world, he has an emotional breakdown that literally breaks his entire world apart. "She has to stay! Without her my world is empty, and I'm nothing!"
** [[TastesLikeDiabetes sickeningly adorable]] Foofy Wuggums from ''Good Wilt Hunting''. Accidentally left all alone at a train station lost-and-found for several months, leaving her to believe that her creator doesn't want her anymore? Aww... and she even speaks in BabyTalk!
* Todd the fox from ''WesternAnimation/TheFoxbusters''. Just watch the episode "Winging It" and you instantly want to hug him. "I guess I screwed up again. Oh well, least I'm consistent. I always do the wrong thing, heh. If I was in a prop cartoon, I bet I'd find myself on a clifftop right about now singin a sad song about how I don't fit in...."
* Fraidy Cat from the 1975 cartoon called, well, ''WesternAnimation/FraidyCat'' is a much more unique woobie; he lost his [[CatsHaveNineLives previous 8 lives]] from different timelines and is trying to make his last one last. The problem is that every time he mentions the numbers 1 to 8, ''even words that sound like those numbers'', a specter of his previous incarnations tries to make his life miserable, even though he is constantly trying to avoid conflict. Mentioning 9 makes a cloud of thunder attack him. Coupled by the fact that [[KafkaComedy every episode subjects him to this horrible fate]] makes him even more pitiful. Seriously, can someone [[PetTheDog give this poor guy a hug?]] [[FridgeHorror Even more horrifying]] if his entire existence is based around religious reincarnation, where he reincarnates 8 times before his soul is completely destroyed.
* ''Literature/{{Franklin}}'':
** If it's possible for an inanimate object to qualify, then how about the treefort? Depending on whether or not you consider ''Franklin and Friends'' an AlternateContinuity, the kids are now on their third treefort. The first one was blown down by a stiff wind in the original series in "Franklin Plays it Safe." A new one was built, and this one (possibly) was knocked down (along with the tree that it was in) by a fierce storm in "Franklin Sees a Storm" on ''Franklin and Friends''. One really begins to wonder just what's up with treeforts in Franklin's world. (As an amusing sidenote, ''Franklin'' / ''Franklin and Friends'' airs on a network called "Treehouse TV" in Canada.)
** Poor, poor Snail. He is a snail and therefore can’t travel to places quickly which is why he leaves ''days'' early just so that he can get to school or somewhere on time. In "Hurry Up, Franklin!", because the other animals were much quicker than him, none of them noticed Snail slithering on the road until Franklin, a turtle, noticed Snail crying because no one else noticed him and he won’t be able to make it to Bear’s birthday party on time.
** Badger. An adorable and shy girl who suffers from cerebral palsy and therefore needs crutches to help her walk around. Thankfully, everyone gets along with her and they enjoy being with her, but still, a disabled child in a SugarBowl show like this can be jarring and quite depressing. (It's likely that due to parents and children finding her depressing, she was removed from ''Franklin and Friends'' and is never mentioned again.)
** Bear. He is just way too sweet on Franklin, even when he doesn’t deserve it, so when Franklin gets angry at him, he defends Franklin and is unreasonably nice to him. Also, he holds honesty and trustworthiness so dear to him that he gets angry at Franklin when he lies or can’t keep a secret. Considering that most of his friends (Franklin, Beaver, and Fox) aren’t always honest or noble, it must be hard for Bear to find someone like him or even someone to trust.
** Franklin himself. Episodes like "Franklin Has A Bad Day" is just cruel and makes him a ButtMonkey when he is already in a bad mood because he dearly misses his friend Otter. "Franklin Goes to Day Camp" where he and Bear meet Possum but ends up being ignored and then punished by the coach many times for minor offenses. His day was ruined and he was practically cheated on. "Franklin's Valentines" has Franklin losing his valentine cards on the way to school and breaks down when he can't find them. "Franklin's New Hat" has him wearing a gaudy hat his sister Harriet made just to keep her happy. Unfortunately it turns out to be a burden to him until he tells his sister that it has many other uses. ([[RunningGag This show kind of likes]] to make Franklin a ButtMonkey for the sake of a plot...)
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'':
** Though the {{Chewtoy}}'s poster-boy, Zoidberg is indeed seen as a Woobie by a section of the show's fanbase, who'd love nothing less than to comfort him.
** Tinny Tim, the ridiculously over the top and adorable parody of Tiny Tim from ''Literature/AChristmasCarol''. Nearly every scene featuring him has him suffering some kind of misfortune despite basically being a crutch armed, kind-hearted orphan ([[FridgeLogic I know]]) robot.
** Kif, could an alien possibly scream Woobie more than this guy? Not only does he receive grief in nearly every episode he appears in, he also has to go through an unplanned male pregnancy when Amy freaks out and runs out on him in "Kif Gets Knocked Up A Notch".
** Leela falls into this a few times, mostly when her upbringing in the orphanage is alluded to, or when she laments her lack of parents.
** Fry living under Leela's shadow makes him qualify for this, ''and then some''. Trying to keep up with the futuristic times, not being as smart or mentally stable as his fellow employees (save for Zoidberg), and suffering the consequences despite noble intentions and a heart of gold. It's enough to get you upset at anyone who berates him for his antics and shortcomings not matter how accurate or deserved.
** Flexo? The poor guy gets hit by a car, risks his life to protect the atom, then gets arrested instead of Bender who actually stole it? And in his second appearence, he mentions how horrible his prison life was, then just laughs it off and forgives Bender immediately. Then when Bender starts dating his ex-wife who he wishes to remains friends with, Bender trys to kill him out of jealousy and almost gets him killed by the Robot Mafia. And the last time we see Flexo, he's in a dumpster heading towards a garbage dump planet. And he was a pretty nice guy who had the misfortune to meet Bender.
%% ** Seymour from "Jurassic Bark."
%% * Wade Duck from ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'':
** There's something about the way Goliath carries the weight of the world on his shoulders (even without considering his tragic backstory) that just makes you feel sorry for the poor guy, for all that he is an epic badass. The main villain from the same series, Demona, alternates back and forth between Woobie and OmnicidalManiac with disturbing ease, particularly in the episode "City of Stone", which revealed ''her'' tragic backstory.
** Lexington. He's the tiniest gargoyle, big ole eyes, and the "I'll never trust anyone again!"
** Brooklyn for the amount of times he had his heartbroken (not to mention the time he ended up having to help Derek, his rival for Maggie's affections.)
* PJ from ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'' is so hard ''not'' to feel sorry for that "poor PJ" might as well be his FanNickname. His father WesternAnimation/{{Pete}} [[AbusiveParents belittles, browbeats, and takes advantage of him on a regular basis]], which instills in him [[NervousWreck crippling anxiety]], [[ExtremeDoormat a self-defeating inability to decline unreasonable requests/orders]], ''and'' [[ShrinkingViolet horrible self-esteem]]. He has no friends other than Max, who despite often supporting him, is also often [[WithFriendsLikeThese selfish]] and [[NoSympathy unreliable]], and Bobby in the movies, [[TheFriendNobodyLikes who barely counts]]. He is both TheCassandra and an easy target for antagonists other than his father. External circumstances cause him anguish as the ''standard conflict'' of [[RotatingProtagonist his episodes]], as well as a fairly major part of most of Max's and his main role in focus-shared episodes. He also mentions that he was even ''worse'' off before he met [[LivingEmotionalCrutch Max]]. And despite ''all'' of this, he's [[NiceGuy consistently sweet to and/or honest with everyone]]. Thankfully, he does get [[ThrowTheDogABone thrown a bone every now and then]], and [[EarnYourHappyEnding gets a well-deserved and much-needed happy ending]] in [[WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie the second movie]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' has a lot of them, as for the record, a lot of the character's suffering comes from [[EnfantTerrible Mandy]], which is even ''worse'' when one realizes that Mandy ''[[KarmaHoudini always]]'' gets her way. We have;
** Jeff, whose entire existence seems to be devoted around [[WellDoneSonGuy getting Billy to love him]]. Instead, Billy has a severe case of arachnaphobia and attacks Jeff on sight.
** Grim, who has been enslaved by a couple of children and is treated like crap
** Billy, a lovable idiot who suffers from CoolAndUnusualPunishment at times
** Irwin, who is an {{Adorkable}} [[TheChewToy Chew Toy]] whose suffering is relentless and excessive
** Nergal, a creature from the Earth's core who [[IJustWantToHaveFriends can't make friend to save his life]]
** Junior, who is [[LikeFatherLikeSon in the same boat as his father]]
* ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'':
** Flaky often gains sympathy from fans due to her being, unlike just about every other character in the show who is blissfully happy until their eventual gory death, perpetually terrified of everything. This is not enough for her to escape her own inevitable grisly fate, however. (The jury is still out on her actual gender too... However most of the creators, most notably on the DVD commentaries, refer to Flaky as a female).
** Petunia and Sniffles tend to die in almost ''every episode they appear in'', typically in the most horrible ways possible ("Wishy Washy" and "Tongue in Cheek" being the most infamous examples).
* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'':
** Arnold, due to his ParentalAbandonment situation, [[JerkassWoobie Helga's]] constant bullying, and his HopelessSuitor status with Lila.
** While she's not much better than her husband, it's hard not to feel at least a little bit sorry for Miriam when you find out about her past. She's implied to have been The Ace when she was younger, a world-class swimmer, a mechanical bull-riding champion and knows enough about business that she can run the Beeper Emporium much better than Big Bob. However, somewhere along the line she flushed all her hopes and dreams down the crapper and married Bob for whatever reason. Everyone treats her like dirt and not even her own daughter has any respect for her, so she becomes an alcoholic just to cope. She even tells Olga during her engagement episode not to make the same mistakes she did.
** Chocolate Boy in his self-titled episode. The reason why he became addicted to chocolate was because it was his favorite treat given to him by his nanny. After she moved away, he ate more chocolate to cope with losing her. He clearly loved her a lot and breaks down crying about how much he misses her.
** Lila in her debut episode. She's the new student, having just moved to town from the country. Despite being very polite and sweet, she unintentionally ends up pissing off the other girls because she is getting a lot of attention from the other students and teachers. So they bully her to the point that she runs home in tears. After agreeing to bring over her homework, they see that Lila is not as perfect as they thought. She lives in a run-down apartment with her single, unemployed father who is completely broke and cries about how she just wanted to have friends. The girls all realize the error of their ways and try to fix everything. Lila was completely huggable in that episode.
** Arnie. Everyone (other than Lila) hates him and openly mocks and ridicules him, even genuinely nice kids like Phoebe, to his face just because he happens to be a little peculiar. Perhaps Lila liking him isn't such a bad thing after all, since she's about the only one who shows him any affection.
** Phoebe, due to being taken advantage of not only by Helga but by everyone else around her.
** Eugene because he was BornUnlucky, although unlike the other examples he [[ThePollyanna doesn't let it get to him.]]
* IM Weasel from ''WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel''. [[FridgeHorror In one episode (Ping Pong At Sea) he knew that his parents sucked eggs and in another (the Christmas special) he claimed to be an orphan so that must mean his parents died when he was young and he went to live at an orphanage. The caretaker forced him to go to regular school despite his gifts and he was constantly bullied and picked on for being smarter than the other kids (this is validified through a comment he makes in the Back To School episode).]] He probably had a very sad life in his early years and many nights, [[TearJerker he probably cried himself to sleep because he missed his parents so much.]] But then one day [[IronWoobie he decided to put it all behind him and transformed his feelings of greif into helping others.]] However, he still has very woobie-ish moments like in I Am Legend, where he sits on a bench and [[ManlyTears cries his heart out]] because he thinks he's the only one alive on Earth and the very end when [[AwfulTruth he finds out the only reason everyone is watching their show is because of IR Baboon and not him]] so he looked absolutely heartbroken. Who wouldn't want to give him a hug after all that?
* Brain from ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget''. In one spin-off series, he quit being a regular because of all the abuse he went through. On top of that, the poor pup became a nervous wreck.
* Dukey from ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'', especially in the episode "Bath Time For Johnny" where Johnny "forgets" Dukey's birthday and he spends most of the episode bawling his eyes out.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' has a few:
** Kaeloo is sweet, loving and cares about her friends, yet pretty much everyone around her is a {{jerkass}} to her. There's also the fact that when she gets angry, she [[HulkingOut transforms into a giant monster]] [[AndIMustScream whose actions are beyond her control]] and beats up her beloved pals. There have even been actual episodes in the show which all but suggested she was ''suicidal''.
** Stumpy is an ugly idiot who sucks at almost everything and is constantly ridiculed by [[WithFriendsLikeThese his own best friends]]. [[spoiler:In Episode 105, he finally calls them out on it, and performs an IWantSong detailing how all he wants is for people to accept him for who he is.]]
** Quack Quack is tortured on an everyday basis by his [[WithFriendsLikeThese "friend"]] [[{{Jerkass}} Mr. Cat]], yet he forgives him each time. Throughout the show, he is put through constant pain and abuse by Mr. Cat, such as being blown up, being tricked into breaking up with his girlfriend, [[ShamefulStrip being forced to strip in public]] and even being DraggedOffToHell.
** Eugly the rabbit is one of the nicest characters on the show, yet she is constantly ridiculed and made fun of by ''everyone'' except [[NiceGuy Quack Quack]], which even Kaeloo joins in. It doesn't help that she's also [[FragileFlower very emotional]] and bursts into tears for the smallest things,
* Ron Stoppable from ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' in the first three seasons. He's always made fun of, seems to never fit in with the other students, is ridiculed by Kim herself, never is shown any importance, the list goes on. Just watch him in "A Sitch in Time" when his family ends up having to move to Norway when he's away from Kim, and him throughout a lot of "So the Drama", especially during the "Why Don't you Kiss her?" montage with Kim and Eric.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', there is a lot of people who fit this;
** The two prime woobies are Bolin and Asami, who both distinguish themselves by being jilted love interests. Bolin is, of course, [[{{Adorkable}} adorably childlike]] and spends a while trying to get Korra to like him, only to [[spoiler: walk into a kiss between her and his brother.]] It's hard not to feel sympathy for him as he bursts into tears and runs off. Asami, meanwhile, after losing her mother as a child and in between [[spoiler:having her father turn evil and subsquently try to kill her]], gets neglected by Mako in favor of Korra. Mako's mild JerkAss behavior towards her, and her reserved sadness about it, turned Asami into a fandom darling.
** Korra, from the end of Season 3 to about mid-season 4, in which about three years had passed. She ends up getting kidnapped by [[spoiler: Zaheer]] after witnessing her father's [[spoiler: apparent death]], is chained up by unbendable platinum and [[spoiler: poisoned by the Red Lotus]] causing her immense pain, sees visions of her past enemies telling her she's useless to the world (she feels that serving the world as the Avatar is her life's sole purpose), is viciously beaten by [[spoiler: Zaheer]] when she breaks the chains and fights him, takes multiple falls that would kill the average person, and is suffocated by [[spoiler: Zaheer]]'s airbending. All of this not only [[spoiler: nearly kills her]], it leaves her with physical injuries so bad that she was wheelchair-bound for years, and was left with major depression and PTSD which she had to go through hell to overcome. She'd spent years separated from her loved ones to recover from her trauma, and is haunted by visions of [[spoiler: Zaheer]] and a dark version of herself, which lasts even after she felt well enough to return to Republic City.
%% * James, Henri, and Moses of ''WesternAnimation/LibertysKids'' are like this whenever they talk about their past.
%% * Hardy the hyena from ''WesternAnimation/LippyTheLionAndHardyHarHar''.
* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'':
** WesternAnimation/PorkyPig in ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow''. Doomed to the status of a ButtMonkey at the hands of WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck, despite the fact that he is the nicest character in the show. While original ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' shorts and media play his abuse more for laughs, there are some occasions what he goes through is outright heartbreaking (watch "Porky's Romance" or "Bah Humduck, A Looney Tunes Christmas" for key examples).
** Wile E. Coyote. Continuously failing in his one goal in life: catching that friggin' Road Runner. Many people have felt sorry for him and wished he caught that bird just once.
** Sylvester. While he does misbehave, he is one of the more sympathetic {{Designated Villain}}s along with Wile E., mainly because his punishments tend to be disproportionate and inconsistent.
* Sunil Nevla from ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012''. He's pretty much a timid NervousWreck with poor self-esteem. The other pets sometimes ridicule his magic tricks as well. His woobiness reaches it's peak during the Stay Here Forever song where he bursts into tears over Blythe leaving to fashion camp.
* Arnold, of ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicSchoolBus'' fame. Helped that he was in some cases [[TheWatson the voice of the audience]], who would quite rightly be terrified of rafting on a magma floe [[ConvectionShmonvection regardless of how "safe" it was]].
* Marion, Mr. Milk, heck, just about all the regular supporting characters on ''WesternAnimation/MakingFiends'', due to constantly living in (justified) fear that [[EvilGenius Vendetta]] is going to do something awful to them. She has all of them under her thumb.
* The eponymous character from ''WesternAnimation/TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack''. He lives in perhaps one of the creepiest fictional towns ever, is always selfishly manipulated by Cap'n K'nuckles, and is constantly subjected to terror, yet he's perhaps the most optimistic and friendly character on the show. In the episode "Jar She Blows," Cap'n K'nuckles tricks Flapjack into squeezing himself into a bottle and sent out adrift where he is lost for days at sea.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'':
** [[HypercompetentSidekick Charles Foster Ofdenson]] has to put up with Dethklok on a constant basis, a task which would have driven a lesser man to insanity or suicide. What's worse is that their reasons for abusing him are completely invalid; they view him as being the opposite of all that they stand for, but in reality, his mercilessness and brutal competence make him one of the most metal characters on the show. The band eventually grow to care for Charles more openly from Season 2 onward, even being seen interacting with him in a casual and friendly way. Too bad he gets [[spoiler: beaten up by a thug and mind-poisoned to death by an Eldritch horror.]] He got better, but still. Poor dude.
** At first glance, Toki Wartooth seems to be one of these - sure, he's in the most brutal death metal band ever and is a sociopath like the rest of the members, but he has a naive, childlike nature, and seems to be one of the only genuinely likable people on the show. Not to mention, he's [[FunnyForeigner adorably foreign]]. Of course, this makes him the band's resident ButtMonkey. You start to feel bad for him... [[BreakTheCutie Then]] [[UnstoppableRage he]] [[{{Gorn}} finally]] [[BewareTheNiceOnes snaps]]. Most people lose their desire to hug him when he dresses in an outfit ''covered in spikes.'' Then there was that stuff with his ''dad'': a life time of abuse and the moment he finally forgives him, WHAM! [[spoiler: Dead under the ice.]] Oh and there's the fact that ''everyone he loves dies.''
** Dr. Rockzo gets treated sympathetically in some episodes, particularly in "Cleanzo," where his drug problems are extremely evident, and the band helps him to get clean out of sympathy for him. Of course, due to the popularity of the character, his clean streak couldn't last long, ending in the next episode he appears in.
** Many characters fulfill the qualifications for Woobieness in ''Metalocalypse''. Murderface's many emotional issues, Skwisgaar's neglectful childhood, Pickles' parents favoring his conman leech of a brother over him... Need I go on?
* Several of the characters from ''WesternAnimation/TheMrMenShow'' are considered Woobies. Some fans feel bad for Mr. Grumpy, though he doesn't get it as bad as the latter characters. Mr. Quiet and Miss Calamity due that they get bad luck (Mr. Quiet especially because he just happens to live next door to Mr. Loud). Mr. Bump due that he always get hurt, Mr. Persnickety/Fussy due to always being scapegoated and living in a duplex with Mr. Messy, and even Mr. Happy from some of the fans. Whenever he feels sadness, anger, anxiety, etc, he hides it behind a smile so other people will still be happy, making him suffer in silence the most out of anyone in the show, without most of the Mr./Misses knowing.
* Rufus Hyena from the ''WesternAnimation/MyGymPartnersAMonkey'' episode "The Mighty" is easily the biggest woobie on the show. The only episode he was ever in, he suffered from severe BreakTheCutie. Once Adam insulted him and his laughter, he stormed out of the bathroom in tears and actually went into a TroubledFetalPosition at one point. He was in a constant state of OcularGushers and Adam barely felt any remorse for having hurt his feelings. Not once did Adam feel the need to apologize to Rufus, even THREATENING him to stop crying at one point. Also, [[MoralEventHorizon Nurse Gazelle terrorizes him for no reason by trying to shave off his fur while he's in his tearful state.]] The only amount of sympathy Rufus even got was Windsor cuddling him and Jake feeling concerned about him. Adam, Principal Pixiefrog and Nurse Gazelle treated him like garbage, not giving a damn about his hurt feelings.
** Vice Coach Horace Ferret, who may be being used by Coach Gills only as a means of transportation and she may not care about his feelings.
** Ingrid Giraffe, due to being the tall awkward girl in the class.
** Adam, due to many of the predicaments he's gotten into throughout the series.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'':
** Sheldon Lee. He has an [[AllLoveIsUnrequited unrequited crush]] on Jenny, and despite the fact that he would at least understand her far more than most of the people around her do he is discarded most of the time by the fact that he's - *gasp* - [[OneOfUs a geek]]! (OK, so [[StalkerWithACrush he has a couple of those stalker tendencies]], but what lovable fictional nerd doesn't?)
** Jenny is [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer viewed as an outcast]], her mother hid her away from the world for most of her life and treats her more like machine than a person, the military is constantly waiting for her to step out of line, and she is constantly being attacked by the Cluster, who have made many attempts to capture her, destroy her, or [[WeCanRuleTogether make her join them and enslave humanity]]. Just try to watch the ChristmasEpisode where Jenny is [[spoiler:[[BrainwashedAndCrazy mind controlled]] to destroy holidays for ''a year'' to point where her even her best friend and ''her mother'' when to shut her down for something she doesn't even remember doing]] without wanting to give her hug a hug and tell her everything will be okay.
* Oscar from ''WesternAnimation/OscarsOasis'' most definitely fits this, considering he's a [[TheChewToy Chew Toy]] who is only trying to get by in life. Harchi the hyena has his woobie moments as well, like when he gets frightened by something and starts crying.
* WesternAnimation/OswaldTheLuckyRabbit, as we get to see in ''VideoGame/EpicMickey'' was abandoned by [[Creator/WaltDisney his own father]] over a [[DoingItForTheArt budget dispute]] with [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Charles Mintz]], and when Creator/WalterLantz took over the cartoons, Walt ''openly approved'' of Lantz using Ozzie. And it only got worse when Oswald's half-brother MickeyMouse usurped his original popularity, which, coupled with Lantz's change of the character, as well as the gradual rise of ScrewySquirrel characters over cute funny animals in the early 1940s (including Creator/{{Universal}}'s own new character, WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker) sent Oswald to his grave in 1943, after limping by for the last several years. You would think that in the world for forgotten Disney characters, he would have finally gotten [[EarnYourHappyEnding the happy ending he deserved]]. But nope, [[FromBadToWorse things got even WORSE for him]] -- said half-brother just happened to [[NiceJobBreakingItHero accidently spill a jug of paint thinner onto Yensid's world]], which would up ruining the whole place by turning it into a [[CrapsackWorld savage wasteland]], as well as unleashing the [[EldritchAbomination Shadow Blot]] upon the place, which would lead the entire world into even more mayhem and ruin, forcing Oswald and any remaining resistance underground--the lowest point of his life would be seeing his own wife, Ortensia the Cat, [[AndIMustScream frozen into stone]], the experience eventually degenerating him into a distrusting, bitter Antihero. And on top of that, he's manipulated by the Blot into becoming jealous and hateful of Mickey so he can be used to its advantage. [[spoiler: That said, he DOES finally get his happy ending when Wasteland is restored and he finally bonds with Mickey.]] Things are getting better for him in RealLife as well. In 2004, Japan had a gigantic craving for rabbit and toy companies began churning out [[EverythingsBetterWithPlushies Oswald plushies]] which were insanely popular. Not to mention in 2006, Disney literally traded a ''human being'' (sports caster Al Michaels) to NBC in exchange for Oswald, showing that they [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming still truly care for him]] and that they want him to return home. And if you haven't yet cried for Oswald after hearing his story, try watching [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=369ZiUrwQTs this]] and see if you can keep a dry eye.
* Trembly Paw from ''WesternAnimation/PawPawBears''. He's a NervousWreck and whenever he sees something actually happen the other characters don't believe him and some even laugh at him about it. There's also the fact that he is one of the only Paw Paws without a plush doll. Had the show been more popular, he'd probably sell many plushies due to being a woobie.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'':
** [[OnlySaneMan Maurice]]. Poor guy bends over backward for [[{{Jerkass}} King Julien]] day and night, and barely gets any thanks for it. And how can you watch the [[HumiliationConga pilot episode]] and not want to give him a big hug? The fact that his species is one of the greatest examples of an UglyCute / {{Woobie}} animal alive certainly doesn't hurt (see here)=> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aye-aye. (Ugly Cute because, well, just look at one, and Woobie because they are often killed by Madagascar natives because of superstitions about them.) I personally consider the episode "Kingdom Come" to be Maurice's CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
** Stefano is good at Wangst, but we see him display this adorable set of PuppyDogEyes when he thinks Vitaly is missing.
%% ** Private is the Woobie of the penguin team.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb''
** Another villain example: Dr. Doofenshmirtz whenever he gives a backstory. [[RuleOfFunny His parents didn't even attend]] his own ''[[BeyondTheImpossible birth]].'' It helps that the reason they never came to his birth was because they just didn't even bother
** Poor Carl; he works hard as an unpayed intern for a boss who blames him for everything. The thirds season seems to play up his Woobie status by having him get captured while in a squirrel suit, having his relationship with Monogram (his boss), strained in an upcoming episode, "Minor Monogram", and even having him turn horribly evil in the season finale cliffhanger episode "World Without A Platypus". Throw in the fact that he's an adorable geek, you cannot POSSIBLY get any more Woobie than Carl.
* Pinky from ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain''. Despite his cheerful personaity, he undergoes BreakTheCutie quite a bit. In the Christmas episode, Brain makes him cry and he's also broken down in tears of pain during the Halloween Special, The Pink Candidate, That Smarts, Inherit The Wheeze, The Family That Poits Together Narfs Together and Operation Sea Lion to name a few episodes. Who wouldn't want to hug him after all the heartache he's been put through?
* Both Snitter and Rowf from ''WesternAnimation/ThePlagueDogs''. Snitter's master is killed by jumping in front of truck to save Snitter's life. Snitter is blamed for his master's death and sent to animal research lab, where this poor terrier receives experimental brain surgery. Rowf is drowned and then revived by "the whitecoats" simply so they can measure his will to survive. Even though, Rowf hates and fears "the whitecoats" he still believes it is a dog's duty to serve people. And on top of all this, every time you think something good will finally happen to Snitter and Rowf, something twenty times worse than what you can imagine happens. And even worse, [[spoiler:they don't get the happy ending they had in the book (in which Snitter's owner is alive and adopts them both). No, the last we see of them is that they're swimming out into the ocean with the faint hope of finding an island they can be safe on, but probably instead are just going to drown. [[TearJerker GAH!!!]]]]
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' has a few examples:
** Each of the girls have had their woobie moments, such as Blossom in "The Mane Event," Bubbles in "Octi Evil" and "All Chalked Up," and practically any episode (except "Moral Decay") that revolves around Buttercup.
** The Professor has a few woobie moments in the post-movie seasons.
** Ms. Bellum herself can also count, due to her employer getting a case of {{Flanderization}} in the post-movie seasons as well.
** Some of the villains can count as well, especially Mojo Jojo in "The Powerpuff Girls Rule!!" special.
* Yipper from the ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies2010'' episode "The Yipper Caper" spends most of the episode depressed because he thinks nobody want him. At least he gets his happy ending at the end of the episode.
* Gus Griswald from ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}''. Being a MilitaryBrat, his family always has to move from state to state, he has a FriendlessBackground, and he's always picked on by the other kids at school.
* WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty: Poor, poor Morty. He is often a guinea pig for his grandfather Rick's crazy scientific escapades, his parents bicker constantly, and these are just the tip of the iceberg...
** While Rick is typically a drunken JerkAss, the Rick from G-19 Zeta 7 a.k.a. Doofus!Rick is definitely not the case. Because of Rick G19Z7 being soft-spoken and having no children of his own (which means no corresponding Morty), the other Ricks ridicule and ostracize him.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' pulls this off with Darth Vader.
* Rocko from ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' sure is one. He lives in a world where even his own friends would neglect him, or simply use him for their own ends, and everyone is out to trample him for just being so short.
* Misery from ''WesternAnimation/RubyGloom'' is quite Woobie-ish. She always looks sad and she's super cute and bad things always happen to her. Misery is an unusual case of Woobie and ChewToy actually overlapping. Her misfortune is nearly always played for laughs, her ability to shrug it off is a major part of her personality, and yet she ''still'' has moments where you just want to give her a hug.
%% * Megan from ''WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig''.
* Scaredy from ''WesternAnimation/ScaredySquirrel'' seems to be a mix of this and ThePollyAnna, considering the way Nestor treats him. He rarely breaks down crying [[TearJerker but when he does....]]
* ''WesternAnimation/SheepInTheBigCity'':
** Sheep. He's constantly being chased by the military to be used in a sheep powered ray gun, beaten up by a mean old rich lady, struggles to fit into the big city at first and has been abused by a bratty little girl who insists that he's a "doggie". Poor, poor Sheep.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':
** Butters is constantly mistreated and abused both by the boys and by his authoritarian parents (who punish him horribly for things he hasn't done, has had no control over, or shouldn't be considered as bad at all). And yet he still keeps a fairly sunny disposition. Even when he finally loses it and becomes supervillain Professor Chaos, his schemes are so endearingly pathetic (like stealing erasers and trying to flood the earth with a garden hose) that you still want to just give him a big hug and make him feel better.
** Pip, the British orphan kid that disappeared somewhere between the sixth and seventh season. He's constantly bullied and picked on by his peers for being different. And then he reappeared in the 201st episode...[[DroppedABridgeOnHim and got stepped on by Mecha-Streisand.]]
** Stan and Kyle also suffer from the effects of living in a CrapsackWorld like South Park. Stan lives with, aside from a decent sensible mother, an [[BigBrotherBully abusive older sister]], a ManChild father, and a suicidal grandfather, but the highest points of Stan's Woobie status were when [[spoiler: Wendy broke up with him for four seasons]], and the DramaBomb-laden "You're Getting Old". Kyle's life might be worse than Stan's considering what happens to him in more recent episodes, and not only that, but his parents are an over-bearing MamaBear and an AmoralAttorney that shifts between being a decent father or, on occasion, treating Kyle like a WellDoneSonGuy. Furthermore, in one episode Kyle gets sued and the plaintiff attorney is none other than ''his own father.''
** Kip Drordy from ''You Have 0 Friends''. Only someone with a heart of stone doesn't melt at this poor third grader's quest for Facebook friendship. It's very telling when a fan page created for him swells to 30,000 fans overnight.
** Kenny. He's poor and lives in constant poverty, his parents drink, do drugs and fight all the time to the point that he's completely desensitized to it. Not to mention that he [[spoiler: [[WhoWantsToLiveForever can't ever stay dead anytime he dies]] [[AndIMustScream and is the only one who remembers every single death he's had and no one believes him.]]]]
** Tweek is considered this by some, being an anxiety-ridden NervousWreck with [[AbusiveParents parents]] who feed him unhealthy amounts of possibly meth-infused coffee to deal with his "ADHD" and, by his father's own admission, have him work in the backroom of their coffee shop all day.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'': True to the comics, the sheer amount of crap poor Spidey gets put through over the course of this show is unbelievable.
* The titular character of ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' is a child-like, naive FragileFlower with NoSocialSkills, doesn't realize that everyone thinks he's annoying, and is so sensitive that he'll cry at the drop of a hat.
** Squidward is something of a JerkassWoobie, as somehow he gets the worst of almost any situation, though many times it's also due to his own arrogance and self-aggrandizement.
** Sandy has woodie moments too, namely being the only land dweller in an ocean full of sea creatures who worked her ass off to get respect from them. There's episodes like Squirrel Jokes where Spongebob (unwittingly) causes the poor girl to be publicly humiliated and heckled everywhere she goes.
** Gary, especially in episodes like "Have you seen this snail?" and "Pet Sitter Pat".
** Poor Mrs. Puff never gets a break, in dealing with her most devoted pupil.
%% * Supergirl from ''WesternAnimation/SupermanBatmanApocalypse''
* ''WesternAnimation/SuperNoobs''
** Memnock and Zenblock. Both of them could be seen as a couple of the unluckiest characters in the show. They constantly have to deal with having to train a bunch of selfish children who they accidentally recruit to be virus warriors because they didn't know anything about Earth and they constantly have to satisfy the many petty demands of such children. They also get put into a lot of life threatening situations "License To Noob" featured both Memnock and Zenblock going through a really bad day as both of them get a bad case of swink eye and when they task the Noobs with getting the needed medicine for their condition and lend the Noobs their ship to get the medicine, they end up getting framed for galactic traffic violations and ticketed severely and their ship also gets wrecked. " A Noob Divided Cannot Noob" also had Memnock and Zenblock move out of the house they were forced to live in as the house was too uncomfortable and small for both of them and the stress from all that also caused their vitriolic friendship to easily shatter to pieces although it is restored in the end.
* ''WesternAnimation/TazMania''.
** Wendell T. Wolf. He's the LastOfHisKind and his personality and voice are nearly identical to Creator/WoodyAllen, he is mistaken for a silly-looking dog and has become very clingy towards Taz due to his loneliness. And to make him even more of a Woobie, he was orphaned as a child and constantly bullied, having his stuffed animals ripped apart.
** Axel, considering how Bull Gator treats the poor guy.
* ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'':
** What do you get when you put an {{Adorkable}} TeenGenius through hell? Donatello. [[OneMarioLimit Yes,]] ''[[OneMarioLimit that]]'' [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 Donatello.]] He's the one who gets captured by aliens, sent to a BadFuture, [[BrainwashedAndCrazy mutated beyond recognition]] and, generally, gets the [[StealthPun short end]] [[SimpleStaff of the stick]]. On top of everything, he's a TechnicalPacifist and [[TheProfessor a reptile of science]], which, respectively, conflict with the fact that he also happens to be a ninja and a mutant. There are some episodes where you just can't help wanting to give him a hug.[[note]]Watch ''The King'' and the end of the Outbreak arc-- that is to say ''Adventures in Turtle Sitting'', and ''Good Genes Parts 1 & 2''.[[/note]]
** Leatherhead from the ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'' incarnation. He was a pet as a regular alligator, until his owner's parents found him and flushed him. He was then captured by the Kraang and subjected to experiments and ColdBloodedTorture that left him experiencing fits of UnstoppableRage at '''hearing''' the word Kraang that he can't control and causes him to do things he's horrified with after he snaps out of it.f
** April has been hunted, orphaned, kidnapped, seen her dad mutated--twice--in front of her and outright betrayed or abandoned by friends and family, and learned her whole life has pretty much been a lie. All at 16. If that isn't enough to send a girl screaming into therapy, I don't know what is.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'':
** Peter Sam, especially around Season 4. For proof of his adorable Woobie-dom, see [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2eHouZvFek here]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kK8HW81dHhg here]]. It doesn't help that he looks really cute with his Giesel ejector-style funnel.
** Percy gets in on this at times, due to the excessive number of accidents he suffers (only a few being his own fault). He's also one of the younger, more naive engines and frequently gets dismissed or bullied around because of it.
** Toby becomes one in later episodes, where he suddenly gains a huge inferiority complex and is [[LovableCoward rather meek and cowardly]]. He is also occasionally picked on for his outdated build and [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer being a tram]].
** Thomas himself in later seasons. He is extremely loyal to his friends and insists on making them happy and being useful, however his naivete and carelessness almost always leads to him making matters worse, setting up a BreakTheCutie moment by getting chewed out by the Fat Controller or upsetting one of the other engines.
* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'':
** Otto Osworth. Otto was living in a horrible orphanage where a nun named Sister Thornly often singled him out to force him to do hard labor type chores a 7 year old couldn't possibly do by himself, all because he broke one of her big rules: no reading. It's impossible for this kid to not read, and for someone that just wants, mind you ''loves'' to read history for the fun of it, it’s really sad that he would be ostracized and berated for something so innocent, and pretty endearing. Also when he is finally with a closest thing to a 'family', Tuddrussel and Larry aren't always to the task. Like when they completely '''ABANDON''' him on a desert island and he had to find for himself, living off sand and salt water and almost getting killed by monkeys; all because Tuddrussel and Larry were having a petty argument. And that isn’t the only time they’ve done that to him ether, and all for very stupid reasons.
** Larry 3000, a sophisticated, sensitive robot that was once serving kings and presidents and worked as an ambassador for Earth until world peace was ultimately accomplished, then everything went downhill. Without a job and considered almost useless he went to work for Time Squad and got saddled with Buck Tuddrussel, while a lot of HoYay goes on in the show you can't help but feel sorry for a robot that's reduced to cooking and cleaning for two humans without so much as a thank you and is often reduced to tears because of Tuddrussel's JerkAss attitude towards him.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/TimothyGoesToSchool'': Timothy, Yoko, and Grace have all been this, but espicially Yoko.
* Furrball and Fifi from ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures''. Furrball is usually homeless or one of Elmyra's pets, and is often abused. Fifi lives in the junkyard and is usually lonely and upset due to every male running away from her because she is a skunk, and usually isn't much better off than Furrball, often also being abused and ignored.
* ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'':
** The ducklings that Jerry helps. The first one is the duckling in "Just Ducky". He can't swim, which separates him from his mother and siblings, and Jerry tries to get him away from a ravenous Tom. But when [[spoiler: Tom nearly drowns in the pond, the duckling learns how to swim in order to save him.]] The second one is the mallard duckling from "The Duck Doctor". He gets shot in the wing by Tom in hunter garb, and Jerry takes care of him, but the cat keeps shooting at the poor thing. Lastly, there's the duckling in "Downhearted Duckling". He laments on how "ugly" he is, and wants Tom to eat him for that reason. Jerry tries to boost the duckling's self-esteem, but all attempts failed. [[spoiler: But the duckling gets out of his funk when a female duckling calls him "cute".]]
** Tom. Sure, he's a JerkAss sometimes, but every episode he's put through everything cartoon violence has to offer. One episode was when Tom's family went on a trip, leaving Tom with canned fish to eat. The problem? Jerry has stolen the can opener, ''for no reason other than to tick Tom off''. If you have ever had an annoying little brother, you can relate to the poor cat.
%% * Benny the ball from ''WesternAnimation/TopCat'' and to a lesser extent, Choo-Choo.
* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'':
** ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' had Transmutate, a [[UncannyValley malformed]], mentally challenged RobotGirl [[spoiler: who died in a battle between Silverbolt and Rampage, the only ones who cared for her, when she tried to stop them from killing eachother.]] She was a case of a Woobie and horror in one.
** ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'':
*** Skywarp. Maybe it's the pantophobia[[note]]fear of everything[[/note]], maybe it's the likelyhood that he gets picked on the most out of all the clones. Whatever it is, you just wanna give the guy a BIG hug (of course, he'd probably be scared of that too.).
*** Sari Sumdac becomes one in the second and third seasons, starting when she gets kicked out of her home by the CorruptCorporateExecutive that had taken over her father's company and being told there's no legal proof she even ''exists''. Ouch.
** Poor [[spoiler:Blurr, whose boss turns out to be an undercover 'Con (Shockwave, no less), and who immediately becomes a Woobie when Shockwave apparently murders Blurr by crushing him into a cube!]]
%% ** Bluestreak from ''[[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers G1]]'', when you think about what happened to him in the past.
* A good deal of characters from WesternAnimation/TotalDrama suffer this, with a few from each season. The most notable ones include:
** ''Island'': [[TheChewToy Tyler,]] who is constantly kicked around during his time on the show and is seen ''crying'' after his elimination due to his fear of chickens, and [[{{Adorkable}} Cody,]] primarily in "Paintball Deer Hunter" where he is [[BearsAreBadNews brutally mauled by a bear.]]
** ''Action'': Trent and Gwen, with their ill-fated relationship.
** ''World Tour'': DJ due to his animal curse making him hurt animals, much to his grief. Also Gwen due to receiving all the blame for the love triangle. Tyler (again) due to Lindsay failing to remember him.
** ''Revenge of the Island'': Dakota after her [[ExtremeDoormat severe abuse as an intern]] at Chris' hands, Cameron who's is constantly picked on due to his BubbleBoy status is positioned to make us feel sorry.
** ''All-Stars'': Gwen (again) for the same reason above. Cameron (again) due to getting stalked by Sierra, before having his mind messed with.
** ''Pahkitew Island'': Samey who has been [[ExtremeDoormat abused all her life]] by her BigSisterBully, [[ActualPacifist Ella]] is [[BreakTheCutie constantly attacked by]] Sugar for no reason.
* Kitty Katswell on ''WesternAnimation/TUFFPuppy'', due to the numerous AmusingInjuries she suffers.
* Luxor from ''WesternAnimation/{{Tutenstein}}''. It must really suck being a servant to a JerkAss pharaoh, but his most woobie-ish moment is in Something Sphinx where he thinks he's being replaced by a monkey servant and is so sad about it he walks away, not even bothering to pick up his ball of yarn.
* Koala Man of ''WesternAnimation/UglyAmericans''. They guy chokes in the first episode and [[ZombieAdvocate Mark]] is the only one who moves to help him. He can't reach the elevator button on his own--too short. He gets picked out as a possible problem when Honest Abe comes to town, and the cops tell him he is "in for a world of hurt," as he whimpers. It gets you cheering when he steals a plate of cookies, though.
* The latter in the ''Franchise/WallaceAndGromit'' relationship, receives a fair amount of ill-treatment in "WesternAnimation/AMatterOfLoafAndDeath", "WesternAnimation/TheWrongTrousers" and "WesternAnimation/ACloseShave".
* Corneil from ''WesternAnimation/WatchMyChops'' fits this nicely. He tries to keep being a talking dog a secret between he and Bernie. Bernie often jeopardizes this and the poor guy is on the edge of a panic attack.
* The rat from the ''WesternAnimation/WhatACartoon'' short [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jt5EXJCGyvQ O Ratz: Rat In Hot Tin Can]]. All he wants to do is stay warm and yet he is constantly getting beaten, abused and hurt by people and run over by cars.
* Moosel from ''WesternAnimation/TheWuzzles''. There are times where you just want to wrap the poor moose-seal hybrid in a big hug and tell him everything will be okay. The fact that his voice actor passed away thus ending the series somehow only amplified his {{Moe}} factor. In the Hollywuz episode, Hoppo pretty much treats the poor little guy as a doormat and in Moosel's Monster, the other Wuzzles yell at him for his over active imagination causing him to slowly waddle home. With tears in his eyes, Moosel laments that no one would want to be his friend with his overactive imagination not even himself.
* ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'': [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Jack Spicer]] may be the self-proclaimed "Evil Boy Genius" but no matter how much he tried to prove that he can be as evil as the ancient warriors, his limited powers, his weak will, along with having no magical powers means that both the Xiaolin Warriors and the Heylin never took him seriously as a threat. It got to the point that his triumph in the BadFuture comes across as a ThrowTheDogABone moment for Spicer.
* ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'':
%% ** Nightcrawler, Rogue, and Toad. Really, ''all'' of the kids turn into {{Woobie}}s at some point or another.
** One episode is devoted to Scott being kidnapped by Mystique, knocked out, and waking up in Mexico with his glasses stolen, leaving him forced to stumble around blindly, being attacked by wolves, falling off of cliffs, and being beaten up by Mystique. And she implies that she intends to keep knocking him out and abandoning him in even more remote places.
%% ** Can't forget X-23. Poor girl.
%% ** The 90's ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' series gives everyone their woobie moments, but after "Bloodlines," Nightcrawler takes the cake.
%% ** Wasn't Jubilee the most classic woobie example of the '90s ''X-Men'' from beginning to end though? Nightcrawler always handled his sorrow stoically.
%% ** Special mention should also go to Morph's season 2 return (and especially his season 4 cameo), which not only make him a Woobie, but occasionally turn Wolverine, of all people, into one too.
%% ** In ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen'' Forge and Toad pretty much serve no other purpose to their teams other than to stand there and be adorable Woobies. Although [[spoiler: the amnesiac Jean Grey]] has her moments.
* H.E.L.P.eR on ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''. Similar to Woodhouse on ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'', H.E.L.P.eR is the long-suffering domestic servant who essentially raised the show's protagonists, but is generally treated as a broken-down machine without feelings. He frequently suffers terrible mishaps and is often broken and all but destroyed, with few of the characters batting an eyelash.
