Yet more subverting of the AnimationAgeGhetto: Here is a list of instances of EyeScream in western animation.
----

* Krumm from ''WesternAnimation/AaahhRealMonsters'' was a {{Cephalothorax}} who carried his disembodied eyes around with him. His dad Horvak has the same set-up, and in fact lost one of his eyes when it was mistaken for a musket ball and [[BeenThereShapedHistory used to fire the "Shot Heard 'Round the World".]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', there was a scene in "Too Young" in which the character Lemongrab is so afraid that his eyes actually roll back into his head, leaving only the whites exposed as he screamed horribly. *shudder* Jesus... Seriously- try looking up as high as you can. Sooner or later, it'll hurt. Imagine that happening to you.
** Jossed to a certain extent. In times of serious trauma, it is common for one's eyes to roll back into one's head, leaving the whites exposed. It's a natural instinct of the body to protect the eyes from seeing something horrible, or being damaged by something. Under these reflexive circumstances, it isn't painful, and the eyes go back to normal some time later. Still doesn't make the above mentioned scene less creepy, but at least we know he isn't in actual physical pain...
** In the same episode, Peppermint Butler gets spicy serum in his eye.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' Stan's one-eyed father provides a briefly shocking moment when Steve wakes him in the night and he turns toward the camera revealing he airs out his socket at night, because if it gets damp it grows mushrooms. Seeing what is normally covered by his patch out of the blue is momentarily startling.
** He stores spices in the empty socket, and can also drink through it.
** "Roger Codger" had Stan pull Roger's eye out with a fork when he thought that Roger was dead, and in "Frannie 911" during the montage of Roger's health deteriorating as he's forced to be nice, his right eye comes out of its socket after he irons Stan's vest. Apparently, Roger didn't suffer any visual impairments from those two incidents.
* ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'':
** In the Mooninites' first appearance, Meatwads realizes that they're not his friends after all when Err puts out a cigarette in his eye.
** When a toilet Frylock built destroyed Carl's body, leaving only his head, Frylock attempted to build him a new body out of black market organs he ordered from the Internet. Unfortunately, the organs were all eyes. He could move, barely, and every step hurt as much as you'd expect.
** The episode "Unremarkable Voyage" had Carl, Frylock, and Meatwad shrunk by Shake and they get revenge by crawling into his head and taking over his brain, or rather the nerves where his brain would be if he had one, to make him gorily kill himself. When Meatwad is returned to regular size and neglects to help Carl or Frylock, we later see they had to get out by blowing out one of Shake's eyes.
** Another episode has Shake stealing Frylock's laser contacts, and Meatwad later retrieves them by pulling out Shake's eyes (offscreen) and shoving them over his own.
** The episode "Universal Remonster" plays this trope for laughs, with Oglethorpe trying to activate a retinal scan, both times hitting the button for the wrong laser (no thanks to Emory not labeling the buttons) causing the laser to shoot his eyes out. Hilariously, he manages to get the retinal scan working after he gets his eyes back the first time...with his eyes ''in his hand'' held up to the laser.
---> '''Oglethorpe:''' "DAMMIT, I TOLD YOU TO LABEL THOSE BUTTONS! My eyes are [[{{Understatement}} throbbing]] from the laser!"
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' has Zuko's famous near-miss of getting ''shot in the face with freaking fire''. By his ''father''. His eye still works, however.
** It's still noticeably damaged, and is almost always partially closed.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtHead'' episode "No Laughing", Butt-Head stabs Beavis in the eye with a pencil. Beavis leaves it in for a while, then calmly removes it with a small spurt of blood.
* ''WesternAnimation/CelebrityDeathmatch'' features a whole lot of this.
** Mel Gibson pokes out Paul Hogan's eyes through the back of his head. Paul picks them up and shoves them back in their sockets.
** Cher and Sandra Bernhard are both left with one of their eyes hanging out of their sockets; unlike Cher, who's eye was simply hanging out for the duration of the fight, Bernhard's eye was pushed out of the back of her head with a champagne cork, and was left dangling through the hole in her head until Martha Stewart's punches sends it flying.
** Sammy Davis Jr.'s eye pops out and rolls across the ring floor when Jerry Lewis gives him a friendly pat on the back with too much force. Dean Martin even trips over it.
** Similar to above, Bjork punches Beck's eye out of its socket, and for added effect, stomps on it.
** Referee Mills Lane's glass eye is knocked out of its socket during the fight between Ellen [=DeGeneres=] and Dr. Laura Schlessenger. He even temporarily calls off the fight and demands the two fighters help look for it before finishing the match.
** The Dixie Chicks' Martie blinds TLC's Left-Eye, in her left eye, by jabbing her repeatedly with the bow of her fiddle.
** In quite possibly one of the show's most infamous instances of this trope, Motley Crew's Tommy Lee manages to kill porn legend Ron Jeremy by stabbing him in the eye...[[spoiler: with his penis]].
* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'': The NauseaFuel-heavy episode "Operation: P.I.N.K.E.Y.E." is about students at Gallagher Elementary getting pinkeye from water balloons launched by an unknown assailant. When their eyes crust over, the crust is later shown being used [[IAteWhat as an apple crumble topping]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'' - Courage gets this fairly often - his eyes sometimes fall out of their sockets when he screams. In more extreme cases, they burst.
* When ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'' attempts to put in her contact lenses for the first time. It quickly cuts away before she puts it in, but we hear her scream when in pain when she does.
* In ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' Princess Clara's father the king almost decides to gouge her eyes out with a fork to stop her from seeing Spanky.
* The first episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheDrinkyCrowShow'' shows, in painfully explicit detail, Drinky yank his own eye out with a clamp, then slice the optic nerve with a razor blade.
* An episode of the ''WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim'' cartoon featured Jim looking for a new sidekick, and one of the candidates was Turns-His-Eyelids-Inside-Out Boy.
* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' has Rolf deliberately ''squirting lemon juice into his eyes''.
* The ''WesternAnimation/ExtremeGhostbusters'' episode "The Unseen" involving an orb that summoned a demon who would steal the eyes of anyone who looked at it. The episode went so far as to show the empty eye sockets on two or three occasions, and at least showed the eyes flying right out of their sockets.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' episode "Timmy's 2-D House of Horror", Vicky's family sees horrible things through a magic pair of 3-D glasses such as Mrs. Turner serving spaghetti and EYEBALLS.
* In a two-part ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode, during their fight Lois claws out Stewie's eyes, but he apparently can see fine later.
** A couple of Peter's cutaway flashbacks also use this, such as the one where Peter is on a submarine, messes with the pressure knob instead of turning on the radio, and the eyes of all the submariners pop out of their sockets.
** In one cutaway they're hanging out with a big-horned demon from ''Film/Legend1985'' whose horns accidentally jab Quagmire in the eye and rip out one of Cleveland's.
** In "Lottery Fever", Peter shoots Joe's eye with a BB gun. When he appears later, it's shown he had to get a glass eye.
** In a first season episode, Lois tells Bonnie that someone lost an eye at bingo last week. A CutawayGag shows the bingo caller pull out a ball, announce it (yes, it's an I-ball), then drop it...and then he puts his eye out on the corner of the table when he bends over to retrieve it.
** In "When You Wish Upon a Weinstein", when Lois tells Meg that she doesn't think laser eye surgery is safe, it's followed by a CutawayGag of [[Franchise/StarWars Luke Skywalker]] trying to perform an incision on a woman's eyes using his lightsaber. When Obi-Wan tells him to use the Force, he ends up shoving it through the patient's eye and out the back of her head.
** In "Meg and Quagmire", we're treated to fangirls going stark-raving bonkers at the Teen Choice Awards; one of them rips out her eyeballs.
** In "April in Quahog", Peter tries crystal meth and rips out one of his eyeballs because it was "bugging him".
** In "Hannah Banana", when Chris baits Peter with a hat and crushes his head between two logs, it cuts to Peter in the aftermath and one of his eyes is hanging out of a now-broken lens on his glasses.
** In "Lois Comes Out of Her Shell", one of Stewie's turtle Sheldon's evil acts is replacing Peter's glasses with forks. Somehow, he's initially unable to tell the two apart.
-->'''Peter''': (forks shoved into his eyes) Okay, who replaced my glasses with forks? I mean, they're really good for seeing forks, but not for much else.
** In "Peternormal Activity", Stewie gets tired of Brian using a pair of glasses to make himself look smart, so he hits Brian with a baseball bat and shatters the glasses, causing the shards to get in Brian's eyes.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' episode "Mac Daddy", the first of Bloo's {{Imagine Spot}}s showcasing the ways Cheese can get himself injured has him squirting a pen into his eyes.
* In the fourth ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' film, a ''Martian Muck Leech'' attaches itself to Leela's eyeball.
** There's also an episode where Leela, after being complimented on her eye, touches it vainly, complete with indentation marks. The commentary track for that episode mentions that anyone who doesn't wear contacts is likely to be bothered by that scene.
** Supposedly, people squirm when they see Bender's eye being drilled into in the third movie, ''Bender's Game''.
** The [=eyePhones=] from "Attack of the Killer App". [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Exactly what it sounds like.]]
** In "The Duh-Vinci Code" Fry gets a nail lodged in his eye after attempting to use it to shut down a machine.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' episode "[[Recap/GravityFallsS2E4TheSockOpera Sock Opera]]", one of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Bill]]'s first actions upon possessing Dipper and becoming subsequently [[SenseFreak fascinated/entertained by inflicting pain on his new body]] is to pour soda in his eyes.
** In "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back the Falls", a gigantic Bill has his eye ripped out of its socket by the [=ShackTron=], then later he has spray paint sprayed into his eye, with Mabel remarking that she knows it hurts because she's accidentally done it to herself multiple times.
-->'''Bill:''' (after having his eye ripped out) Do you know how long that takes to regenerate?!\\
'''Bill:''' (after being sprayed) I just regenerated that eye!
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy''
** "My Peeps". After Billy is blinded after staring at the sun too long, an optometrist attempts to show him how simple and painless putting on a contact lens is. Unfortunately, he's putting a small realistic contact lens on a huge cartoony eye.
** In "[[Literature/HarryPotter Nigel Planter]] and the Chamber Pot of Secrets", after Grim accidentally hits Nigel in the eye with a miniature Billy (shrunk down so Grim could use him as a golf ball), he comes out of Nigel's eye socket then spits his eye out and puts it back in.
** In "Substitute Creature", Mandy hands Irwin a telescope then promptly punches it into his eye socket.
** In "Fear and Loathing In Endsville" Grim and Dracula are roasting scorpions for food when the angry giant mother attacks them for eating her children. When Dracula insults her she stabs him in the eye with her giant stinger.
** In "Complete and Utter Chaos" Eris' Apple of Discord sprouts mechanical legs and breaks out of Grim's bottomless trunk, then wakes Billy up by putting one of its legs in his eye.
* ''WesternAnimation/GrizzlyTalesForGruesomeKids'' includes the story of "The Peeler" a charecter from a Victorian nursery rhyme who punishes children who refuse to go to sleep by peeling away their eyelids using an old style potato peeler, and then carrying them around with him as a kind of macabre butterfly.
* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse2002'' had the hero defeat an EldritchAbomination by stabbing it in the eye and running it through.
* The "Bestest Friend" episode of ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim''. Zim is being stalked by his new best friend, Keef, for the whole episode, and in order to get rid of him, Zim [[spoiler:uses mechanical claws to RIP OUT HIS EYES and replace them with cybernetics.]] We all mourn the show's untimely cancellation, but with stuff like that going on, it's a wonder it lasted on Nickelodeon as long as it did.
** It's only shown in silhouette, but that's quite sufficient.
** There was also that episode where Zim crashed his ship into a giant screen. Said crash was jarring enough to knock one of his eyes out. After which he simply picks it up and sticks it back in.
** There's also the bit in "Walk of Doom" when he looks straight at the sun and his eyes burn and bubble.
* On ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'', Hak Foo has an attack he [[CallingYourAttacks calls]] "Monkey Plucks Two Peaches" which involves jumping on his opponent's shoulders and gouging out their eyes with two fingers. The first time he does this he was merely demonstrating his skills to Valmont and the Enforcers and stopped his fingers millimeters before they reached Tohru's eyes. When he tries this on Uncle, Uncle catches his hand in time.
* The ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'' episode "The Doomsday Sanction" had this nasty exchange...
-->(Superman uses heat vision to collapse the ceiling, but Doomsday easily lifts the rock off)
-->'''Doomsday''': "Ah, I remember. Those ''eyes''."
-->(Pins Supes to the wall, then punches him in the face with his ''spiked knuckles'')
-->'''Superman''': "Ahhhh!!!!"
-->'''Doomsday''': "Let's see you do that again."
** Near the end of the fight, Supes' eyes heal offscreen, allowing him to blast Doomsday with a surprise heat vision shot.
** The episode "Only A Dream". As part of Superman's nightmare, his heat vision activates continuously, like Cyclops from ComicBook/XMen. He tries closing his eyes, and the beams destroy his eyelids!
** Superman using Darkseid's own Omega Beam vision to hurt him by simply clapping both hands over his eyes in the ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' finale. It left the New God potentate with some pretty horrific facial scars.
* ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'': In the episode "Won't Crack or Peel", Henry and June enter a staring contest with [[NoFourthWall the audience]]. June has to take a leak, so she keeps her place by ''plucking her eyeballs out, [[{{Squick}} sticking them to the screen, and leaving them there.]]''
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' has a mild case in "Low Budget" when Kim pretends to put on a contact lens. She pokes herself in the eye without flinching, but a single tear falls from her eye.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' the music producer Dick Knubbler, after losing too much oxygen in the submarine, has his eyes explode.
** And a particularly glorious one from [[HumanoidAbomination Salacia]] in the season 1 finale.
--> "Be blind."
* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' had a villain who was a giant eyeball with tentacles. At one point, his eye gets irritated, and he hears a street vendor advertising his eye drops...but the street vendor is also selling hot sauce on the same cart. Guess which one the villain grabs.
* Surprisingly frequent in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. It's always PlayedForLaughs, though.
** In the episode "Swarm of the Century", Rarity finds out how [[ExplosiveBreeder parasprites]] reproduce when one barfs a glob of brown slime into her eye... which then pulls itself off of her eye and becomes a new parasprite.
** In the episode "Green Isn't Your Color", Twilight Sparkle accidentally pokes herself in the eye while swearing to keep Fluttershy's displeasure with her modeling career a secret.
--> '''Twilight Sparkle''': Cross my heart and hope to fly, stick a cupcake in my... ''AUGH!''
** In "Sisterhooves Social", Granny Smith accidentally pokes herself in the eye with a megaphone when her rocking chair swings too much.
** Twilight gets another one in "It's About Time" when she accidentally looks into the sun with her telescope. This one results in an "emergency" EyepatchOfPower, courtesy of [[CrazyPrepared Pinkie Pie]].
** Pinkie herself gets one in "A Friend In Deed". Although nothing actually ''happens'' to her eye, seeing the eyeball poke through a keyhole (and ''look around'') is definitely cringe-worthy.
** In "Hurricane Fluttershy" Rainbow Dash crash lands and has a head-on collision with a tree, which results in her eyes ''popping out'' from the other side. The creaky sound as she tries to pull herself free is pretty squicky by itself.
** In "Keep Calm and Flutter On", Discord pulls his eyes out when making a pun about rolling his eyes.
** Narrowly averted in "Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3", where Twilight Sparkle catches Rainbow Dash's spitwad a few inches away from her eye. Twilight angrily points out that if she didn't catch it, she could have been blinded.
** In "The Lost Treasure of Griffonstone", Gilda's grandfather is blind in the left eye with a long scar running across it, hinting it was clawed or scratched out in the past.
** In "The Crystalling, Part 1", Baby Flurry Heart climbs onto Pinkie Pie's face and pokes her hoof in her eye, but Pinkie doesn't even flinch.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Down and Dirty", the girls fight a giant elephant monster with multiple eyes. Buttercup finishes it by punching it in one of its eyes, causing it to burst.
** In "The Rowdyruff Boys", after the girls beat an octopus monster it lands on top of Bubbles, she then bursts through its eye.
** In "Bubblevicious", during Bubbles' fight against the holographic monsters she kicks one in the eye, then later punches another's eye off.
** In "Sun Scream", while the Girls are flying, a bird flies by ''and its beak pokes Buttercup in the eye.'' Ouch!
* On ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'', Matrix gets his eye slashed out by the User during a Game and ends up replacing it with a [[EyepatchOfPower cybernetic replacement]].
* In the ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' episode "Peeps", the [[FacelessEye titular character]] get blinded by a laser from Rigby during a staring contest. More subtly, Mordecai wins said contest because his eyes stop blinking. The irritation gets bad enough to vaporize eyedrops with radiant heat.
* One of the clips in Creator/DonHertzfeldt's short ''Rejected'' involves a multi-tentacled alien pulling out someone's eyes. That there is no blood and they come out with a silly "pop" helps [[NightmareRetardant make it less cringeworthy]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'', Ren often poked Stimpy in the eyes once through his nostrils, and often when Ren got punched in the face his eyeballs would often be hanging out of his sockets, and one particularly painful looking example is when Jimminy Lummux smashed Ren's face with his guitar and there is [[ArtisticLicenseBiology a bone sticking out of one of his eyes]].
** In "Lumber Jerks" Ren got stung in the eye by a hornet.
** In "Farm Hands" Ewalt gets his eyeball yanked out by a crow, but apparently he feels no pain.
** In "Sammy and Me" upon getting his Sammy Mantis kit one of the items Stimpy gets is a false eye which he inserts like a lightbulb into one of his own eyes.
** In "Insomniac Ren" near the beginning Stimpy pulls his eyes out then squishes them into a container like someone would do with contacts.
** There was a scene in the episode "Sven Hoek" in which Ren graphically described how he would torture Sven and Stimpy. Although we didn't SEE anything, the sound effects of him gouging out their eyes played over the soundtrack. It was insanely unsettling.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/RocketMonkeys'' episode "Scare-Larious", Wally appears in front of Gus when he's brushing his teeth, causing the latter to squirt toothpaste into his eyes and exclaim "IT BUUUUURNS!" then calmly add "But minty fresh."
** In "Bro to Bro" Wally shoots a goop gun into his eyes, blinding him.
* ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' seems to have a lot of fun with eyeballs. A TV sucks Heffer's brain out through his own twisting, elongated eyeballs in "Boob Tubed". Rocko's toad boss extends his own eyes and shoves them into Rocko's sockets when intimidating him. And don't even get started on ''[[ShowWithinAShow The Fatheads]]''...
** Mrs. Fathead bludgeons Mr. Fathead with a parking meter and one of his eyeballs shatters like glass. [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Then the elf living in his eye becomes irate.]]
** "Gaze into my Nipples of the Future."
** In another episode Rocko, when he becomes a giant, gets punched in the eye by Really Really Big Man.
** In the Halloween special, Rocko gets a piece of candy lodged in his eye socket and Filbert pulls it out, causing his eye to stretch and snap back in place.
** When Rocko gets contact lenses, Heffer checks them out by poking at them.
** Then there was that hammerhead shark who was a batter, and took a baseball straight to one eye, which got knocked ''through'' his head and into the other end, '''dislodging the other eyeball completely'''. He was fine later, but ''damn''.
** In another episode, Rocko gets asked to TurnYourHeadAndCough while the doctor is [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything clenching his eyeballs]].
** In "Popcorn Pandemonium", a baby seated next to Rocko pulls his eye out and begins chewing on it while it's still in its socket.
** In "No Pain, No Gain", one of the exercise machines at the gym puts suction cups on Rocko's eyes and pulls on them.
** In "Canned", when Rocko gets a job as a product tester at Conglom-O and Ed purposely tries to get him killed with the inventions, Rocko tries out a machine that changes the shape of the user's nose. It works for him, but when Ed tries to use it he remembers that he has no nose, and the machine turns his eyes into noses.
* The legendary [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjgHbRrnjhU Sandman Animation]] from 1992. [[spoiler: The titular Sandman jumps around the boy's bed, then swipes at his eyes when he opens them.]] Especially the [[spoiler: post-credits sequence, oh god the post-credits sequence.]]
* The short Australian CGI spoof ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSPy_4HYqGs Samurice]]''. Ricesashi plucks out the eyeballs of the first ninja rice that attacks him.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', particularly Homer but other characters as well have suffered some painful eye trauma on a few occasions.
** Homer gets his face caught in a hose and one of his eyeballs is protruding. It happens again when Willie strangles him.
** In a flashback with him and Marge as kids, he accidentally stabs himself in the eye with a switchblade and has to wear a patch for a while.
** Patty puts out a cigarette in Homer's eye.
** Homer hides from Bart in the Krusty Burger playplace ballpit and Bart pokes his eyes until you hear a loud squirting sound.
** In the movie, Homer receives a hammer claw to the eye. The fact that it's also a fake-out - viewers are led to believe he's going [[{{Fingore}} to smash his thumb]], but he stabs himself in the eye instead - changes it somewhat from a squick moment to a giggle one. ("I'll teach... you to laugh... at something that's funny!")
** It happens all the time in ''[[ShowWithinAShow Itchy and Scratchy]]'' in the most brutal ways possible. Somehow in-universe, it seems to be hilarious.
*** In "Skinless in Seattle" on "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS7E4BartSellsHisSoul Bart Sells His Soul]]", Itchy saws off the top half of the Space Needle, the point of which lands in -- you guessed it -- Scratchy's eye.
*** In an untitled cartoon from "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS2E9ItchyAndScratchyAndMarge Itchy & Scratchy & Marge]]", Itchy knocks Scratchy's eyes out with a sledgehammer and replaces them with a pair of lit {{Cartoon Bomb}}s.
** Played for laughs when a war veteran with an eyepatch tells a story: "Lost this eye in Haiti. I was drinking a Mai Tai and forgot to take the little parasol out."
** [[ButtMonkey Gil]] being kicked out of the Springfield Men's Mission. Strapped for cash, he goes into a shop on the other side of the road named 'Sell your Eyeballs for Money!' {{Squick}}. You don't see this, but you still hear two plucking sounds in succession.
** Flanders had his kids act out violent Bible stories for a movie he was going to make and after acting out the story of Cain and Abel, one of the kids looks like he has his eyeball hanging out of its socket.
** Lenny seems to have eye issues: "My eye! I'm not supposed to get pudding in it!"
** In the kickboxing episode, Homer and Bart agree that there is nothing funnier than self-inflicted violence/pain .. and Homer gets the straw from his drink shoved into his eye.
** After Homer gets a bucket glued onto his head, Bart tries to drill eye holes for him with predictable results. Oddly, he takes it completely calmly: "Easy, easy...(squish) Too far."
** One Christmas episode has Homer giving Lenny a cube with pictures as a gift, mentioning he even cut the sharp corners off so it won't hurt so much if it hits Lenny in the eye. He promptly demonstrates how little it hurts by hitting Lenny in the eye with it.
** The primary side effect to Lisa's happy drug in "A Scorpion's Tale": dangling eyeballs. Ew.
** Marge trying to watch a solar eclipse raw. She's awestruck by it until the sun comes back out and completely burns her eyeballs to nothing. Complete with a bloodcurdling scream for good measure.
** In "Treehouse of Horror XXII", Homer is paralyzed by a spider bite; later, unable to defend himself, he is treated to a similar spider crawling up his nose and, yup, into his eye sockets.
** Sideshow Bob sings about Bart: "I've grown accustomed to his face! And dream of gouging out his eyes!"
** In "The Ziff Who Came to Dinner", Lenny has a bit part in a horror movie where an evil doll kills his character and sews buttons into his eyes. According to Lenny, the buttons were actually held on with ''hot wax''.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''
** The episode "Good Times With Weapons", where [[ButtMonkey Butters]] gets a ninja shuriken straight into the eye! ''Owww.''
*** And the adults were too distracted by Cartman's wardrobe malfunction to care.
** Two of Kenny's deaths involved his eyes being removed: in "Starvin' Marvin" one of the mutant turkeys pecks out one of his eyes, and in "Spooky Fish" the killer fish eats one of his eyes after pulling him into the bowl.
** Done quite graphically to Franchise/StrawberryShortcake in "Imaginationland". To say nothing of the woodland critters' input on the matter.
* ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'':
** By watching enough episodes, it's clear that [=SpongeBob=] is very literal when given eye-related orders. If he's told to keep his eyes peeled he will rip the skin off his eyeballs.
** In "No Free Rides", when Mrs. Puff steals [=SpongeBob=]'s new boat, he attempts to pepper spray her but has the can pointed backwards and sprays himself.
** Played with in the episode "Graveyard Shift" when [=SpongeBob=]'s eyes ''scream''.
** In "The Fry Cook Games", Patrick rips a lemon in half, then puts both halves on his eyes and screams in pain.
** In "Krab-Borg", Mr. Krabs prepares to salt a hardboiled egg, but [=SpongeBob=] calling to him causes him to get the salt in his eyes.
** There was a scene in the episode "Wet Painters" where [=SpongeBob=] sees a microscopic drop of paint on Mr. Krabs' first dollar and his ''eyes crack open, causing his irises to ooze out''.
** In "Krabby Land", [=SpongeBob=] realizes that kids enjoy seeing others in pain when he creates a bubble that pops and gets soap in his eyes. He follows up by pouring the whole bottle of soap into them.
** In "[=SpongeBob=] Meets the Strangler" [=SpongeBob=] tries to help his bodyguard (actually his would-be-killer) reach a window by attempting to jump onto his back wearing cleated shoes. He misses the back, and the cleated shoes land in both of the guy's eyes. His eyes aren't gouged out, being a kid's show and all, but it doesn't decrease the {{Squick}} value.
-->'''Strangler:''' Get your feet out of my eye sockets!\\
'''[=SpongeBob=]:''' I'm trying, but my cleats are stuck in your corneas!
*** When the Strangler is being arrested, one of the officers for seemingly no reason other than RuleOfFunny handcuff his eyes.
** In ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobSquarePantsMovie'', King Neptune's bald head causes a man's eyeballs to smoke and burn from brightness. Later, when Mindy is showing [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick what's happening in Bikini Bottom without them, she shows them Neptune having a squire trying to give him spray-on hair only to accidentally spray it in Neptune's eyes, covering them in hair.
*** When Dennis returns late in the film after being stepped on by the "cyclops", [=SpongeBob=] attempts to reason with him and offers him his bubbles. His bubble wand catches the wind and fires a stream of bubbles in Dennis's eyes.
** In "Fear of a Krabby Patty", Plankton (posing as a therapist) tells [=SpongeBob=] to close his eyes tighter than he already has them, then he tells him to close them tighter than that, which causes [=SpongeBob=]'s eyelids to tear like paper.
** In "Skill Crane", when Squidward comes home after being unable to win at the crane even once, he finds that he can't pick up anything with his tentacles anymore, beginning with the TV remote. In a lapse in judgment he attempts to push one of the buttons with his eye, then screams bloody murder and falls under the table.
** In "Ghost Host", the Flying Dutchman tries several mildly scary things in order to disturb [=SpongeBob=], and, towards the climax of the episode, appears as a huge snake with a huge, grotesque baby's head, which melts, turning into an effigy of [=SpongeBob=], whose eyes elongate into hideous wiggling white worms and squiggle onto the floor. As well as the fact that spiders came out his eye sockets and mouth.
** "Blackened Sponge" featured several different depictions of [=SpongeBob=] getting a black eye. Though it shows multiple objects impacting with his cornea, there's nothing too graphic or violent because, again, it's a kids' show.
** In "Money Talks", during Mr. Krabs' dream of him [[DealWithTheDevil selling his soul to the Flying Dutchman]] to gain the ability to talk to money, he wakes up when the Dutchman reaches into a bag and throws dust in his eyes.
** In "Toy Store of Doom", when [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick run out of the Toy Barrel after being stuck inside all night, [=SpongeBob=]'s eyes burn from the sun.
** In "Enchanted Tiki Dreams", [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick annoy Squidward at work by squirting mustard in their eyes.
** In "Whelk Attack," Sandy asks [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick to lend her their corneas. They remove their corneas like contact lenses and give them to Sandy, then there's a shot of [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick with ''gaping holes where their pupils should be''.
** In "Company Picnic", [=SpongeBob=] flicks a pickle in Squidward's eye, and Squidward then accidentally squirts hot sauce into it, setting it on fire. Mr. Krabs puts his eye out with a fire extinguisher.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Squidbillies}}'' episode "Lipstick on a Squid", part of the Cuylers becoming makeup testers is that they have their eyes propped open and rubbed with deodorant.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'': [[Recap/StarWarsTheCloneWarsS3E18TheCitadel "The Citadel"]] -- Jedi Master Even Piell already lost one eye prior to ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'', and the strike team sent to rescue him manages to enter his cell with the perfect timing to prevent an interrogation droid from removing the other one.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'': [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS2E20TwilightOfTheApprenticePartII "Twilight of the Apprentice"]] has the scene where [[spoiler:Maul]] blinds [[spoiler:Kanan]] with a lightsaber. It's mainly concealed by showing the actual attack [[SecondPersonAttack from the POV of the victim]], and later by the victim finding a mask to wear. However, there's a FreezeFrameBonus where the extent of the damage can be seen, and it's as gruesome as you'd expect.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode "Super Watermelon Island", when Steven leads the Watermelon Stevens against Malachite and they all ColossusClimb onto her, one of them punches her in one of her four eyes.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'' has an instance in the first season episode "Cold-Blooded" where a brutal serial killer accidentally kills himself when he falls and stabs himself in the eye with his own knife.
* On ''WesternAnimation/SuperMansion'', when Lex gets angry at Black Saturn she makes one of his cans of energy drink explode in her hand and gets it in her eyes. This is followed by a less comedic example in the first season finale when [[spoiler: during her battle against Rex after revealing herself as TheMole, she's blinded by a blast from Rex's gauntlet.]]
* Plucky Duck of ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' gets stuck in an advanced WildTake (the "Clampett Corneal Catastrophe", an {{homage}} to Creator/BobClampett), transforming him into a giant eyeball with legs. After being pushed through the nurse's office door, he bounces off the walls, causing Elmyra (the aforementioned nurse) to cower in fear and protect herself with a very sharp scalpel. It gleams in the light, just in case you were unsure of just how razor sharp it really was.
** In "Duck in the Dark" Plucky has a sleepover at Buster's and spent most of the night watching horror movies. Every time he closes his eyes he sees monsters at one point he tries to wake up Buster, but he has changed into a disgusting looking monster that has one of his eyeballs hanging from a nerve.
* One ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' cartoon has Jerry tricking Tom into looking at ''something'' in his hands. When Tom looks, Jerry promptly punches Tom in the eye, causing him a lot of pain.
* Played at in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie''. Besides the dramatic beginning and ending, the only dialogue from the final battle between Optimus Prime and Megatron consists of Megatron screaming, "I'LL RIP OUT YOUR OPTICS!"
** The ''Transformers'' wiki, Teletraan-I, interprets the scene differently: "I can ''see'' the splinter... It's ''right... there...''"
** There's also the scene where the Autobots get inside Unicron by crashing a rather pointy ship through one of his optics, which he ends up clutching in pain. Also, when they end up escaping Unicron, they do so by crashing through his other previously unwounded optic.
* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'':
** The Decepticon Breakdown is captured by human baddie Silas and disassembled so they can learn more about his inner workings. They start by gouging out his eye- er, optic. Granted, he feels no pain because they disabled his pain receptors, but the look of sheer horror on his face afterwards shows he's still suffering.
** ContinuityNod when [[spoiler: Megatron pulls a YouHaveFailedMe on Silas (ItMakesSenseInContext) and gives him over to Knock Out, who was... understandably upset about Breakdown]].
-->'''Knock Out:''' I will leave no fiber or ''fiber optic'' unexamined.
** Another example was during a fight three or so years ago in [[spoiler:an exploding Space Bridge between Cybertron and Earth where Arcee shoots out Shockwave's only]] eye. While the titan of a scientist was caught in the blast, [[spoiler: it was revealed that he had survived even that and even managed to repair the damage in the ensuing years.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''' Brock Samson gouged out the eye of his would-be lover and [[LoveAtFirstPunch frequent enemy]] Molotov Cocktease; he keeps it in a jar for sentimental value.
** That was nothing compared to Dr. Venture getting punched in the face and realizing that his eye is ''hanging out of its socket by a nerve''. They even [[ImpairmentShot showed a few seconds of his eyesight]].
** The shots from the POV of Venturestein, a corpse reanimated by Dr. Venture. At one point, a fly crawls over his eyeball. Then, while still on his eye, it gets ''swatted''.
** In the pilot, Brock drives his thumbs into The Monarch's eyes, and inserts his wings in him.
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/XavierRenegadeAngel'' features a vulture ripping out a dying man's eye and then flying away. The camera then briefly switches to perspective of the eye as the crow flies away.
* Features briefly on ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' in the battle between Match and Superboy. Match shoots heat vision straight into Superboy's eyes, and they visibly smoke for a moment while Superboy screams in pain. It didn't do any real damage, but it wasn't pleasant to watch.

%%* This troper saw a 1940s WesternAnimation/BugsBunny ripoff of unknown origin (didn't look American) where the Fudd stand-in bear-man hunter gets knocked in the back of his head, and his eyeballs pop out and ''dangle by their optic nerves'' - gah.
