Captain Obvious: Web Animation

All examples found in cartoons on the internet are here!
  • The red and blue unicorn from Charlie The Unicorn:
    Blue Unicorn: Charliiee. Chaaaarliiieee. Chaaahrliiee. Chaaar....
    Charlie: I'm right here, what do you want?!
    Blue Unicorn: We're on a bridge, Charlie!!
  • Gordon's thoughts in Freeman's Mind after two hours of killing hostile soldiers, culminating in escaping heavy caliber machine gun and rocket launcher emplacements.
    Gordon: You know, I'm really starting to think maybe this whole thing isn't a rescue operation.
  • Homestar Runner:
    • Teeg Dougland from the short-lived Limozeen cartoon:
    Singer: You know those guys from that band, Limozeen? Well they turned their tour bus into a space machine! They're still Limozeen...
    Larry: We're still Limozeeeen!
    Singer: But they're in space!
    Larry: But we're in space!?
    Teeg Dougland: (walks in) I'm afraid I've got some bad news, boys. You're in space.
    • "I am Homestar, and This is a Website!"
  • From Red vs. Blue after Donut has been caught in an explosion:
    Simmons: Sarge! We really need to get Donut airlifted out of here!
    Sarge: Would you put that in a memo and entitle it "Shit I already know"?
    • Also:
      Tucker: Hey dude, the jeep blew up!
      Church: (two feet away from said jeep when it blew up) No kidding. Thanks for the update, Tucker.
    • Again:
      (as Tex is beating an Omega-controlled Simmons)
      Tucker: Hey, Church! I think Tex is over here!
      Church: Thanks for the update!
    • From Revelations, Tex is beating the absolute shit out of the Reds and Tucker. At one point, they drop a large container on her which she is able to hold up and throw back at the Reds. F.I.L.S.S. gives us this bit of wisdom.
      F.I.L.S.S.: I knew that would not work. Agent Tex is a bit of a badass.
  • In Ultra Fast Pony, Twilight Sparkle dips into this occasionally.
    • In the very first episode:
    Twilight: According to this book I'm reading, the world is going to end soon! I think that might be bad.
    • In "Shameless Self Reference":
    [Rarity falls from Cloudsdale towards the ground.]
    Twilight: I'm not sure, but I think that might end badly.
    • In "Derp and Destruction":
    Twilight: Well guys, in our attempt to run away from Derpy, we've made it here, into the desert!
    Rainbow Dash: Thanks for the update, Captain Obvious.
    Twilight: Hey, there's nothing wrong with a little recap.
    Fluttershy: It hasn't even been five minutes yet!
  • Taken rather literally in this Lego animation.
