Agony Of The Feet: Animated Films
  • Anastasia steps on the Prince's feet during every few seconds of their dance in Cinderella III: A Twist in Time.
  • Near the beginning of The Thief and the Cobbler, Zigzag does this after stepping on one of Tack's tacks. It's also how he wins at the end.
  • In Pinocchio, Jiminy Cricket does it after kicking a billiard ball.
  • Lampshaded in Animalympics (1980). As the voiceover says "the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat", the last phrase comes out just as the polar bear carrying the torch through a desert starts hopping and blowing on his poor, sand-scorched feet.
  • A classic example is Starscream in Transformers: The Movie. As Autobot City transforms, he gets his foot stuck in a closing door. He has to blast it (and his foot) to get out, leading to the classic whine, "Owww, my foot!"
  • In My Friends Tigger & Pooh: Super Duper Super Sleuths, Tigger lifts a rock using super-strength that he's gained, but then drops it on his foot when the super-strength disappears. He manages to free his foot and then says that it's okay because it only hurts when he hops.... "Owie, owie, owie! Why am I hopping?"
  • On The Great Mouse Detective, Olivia stomps on Fidget's good foot, eliciting cries of, "Ow, my foot! My only foot!"
  • This also happens to Chef Louis in The Little Mermaid, after a pan falls onto his foot while he is chasing after Sebastian.
  • Patou the dog from Rock-A-Doodle actually bites the evil owl's foot in order to save Edmund (who was turned into a cat by the owl's magic) from being eaten.
  • In 9, 2 kicks the Cat Beast's corpse in a sort of "Ha-ha, take that!"/celebratory manner, and then hops around holding his foot.
  • On the DVD release of The Lorax, there's a special feature in which the viewer can watch the characters playing with objects from the Once-ler's cart. If you select the cart to get more items, the Lorax kicks it and then hops off the screen clutching his foot.
  • Thumbelina in Thumbelina, when Mrs. Toad (an anthropomorphic toad wearing high heels) steps on her foot.
