Animated Outtakes

Lights, Camera, Animate!
Lots of live-action TV shows and films produce outtakes, as do audio works, live performances, and all kinds of other media where physical, existing things, are involved.

Of course, the animated world isn't real. Ergo, the only things that exist in it are what was intended to exist, Off-Model notwithstanding: Given the difficulty in well animating lengthy projects, this is normally only what is necessary (and sometimes not even that).

Then you get some people who will do anything if it's fun. They make Animated Outtakes.

Sub-Trope of Animated Actors. See also Hilarious Outtakes.

Examples

Advertising
  • A series of yoghurt commercials is a "behind-the-scenes" making-of featuring animated yoghurt bottles messing up by being too lively (the yoghurt is supposed to give you energy, of course).
  • The Burger King Whopper Commercial featuring Homer Simpson. Nuff said.
  • The ads for Japanese convenience store chain Family Mart starring Hatsune Miku has these. They include Miku getting distracted by birds and having her voice break while singing the jingle. Two of the bloopers might even be real, which is an actor sneezing as well as a man walking out of the store and interrupting the shot, but Miku is still animated in them to preserve the realism.
Anime and Manga
  • The creators of Berserk release bloopers, but these are actually the voice acting outtakes on top of the correct animation... and then at the end they have the animated characters in a "scene" apologizing.
  • Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within has a hilarious fake gag reel on the DVD release, including such gems as Gray stumbling and "accidentally" shooting Aki.
    • As well as the cast performing the Thriller dance.
  • On Kill la Kill, the mistakes made by the English voice actors were made into animated versions, and shown at AnimeExpo.
  • Pokémon gets into the act for a special episode during the XY saga in which they make a movie starring numerous Pikachu.
  • The end credits of Stand By Me Doraemon feature a reel that mostly consists of slapstick mishaps, since it silently played over the ending song. One scene involving the title character coming out of his portal drawer apparently took 50 takes.

Live-Action Film
  • Traumschiff Surprise has various bloopers at the end of the film, but one of them is the animated alien dancing to the theme song.

Live-Action TV
  • Lizzie McGuire: The animated version of Lizzie, who narrates some parts of the show as a Talking Head, gets bloopers at the end of the episode with all the real characters, too. Given that some of the animated segments included in the episode deliberately portray the cartoon Lizzie as clumsy and frequently messing-up, the outtakes are typically messing up words, facing the wrong way, or being "pranked" by the crew.

Video Games

Western Animation
  • For its CGI-animation feature A Bug's Life, Pixar had the actors record new dialogue as if the characters were messing up their lines or breaking character (see Animated Actors). They later did the same with Toy Story 2 and Monsters, Inc. — Disney even removed the outtakes from Monsters, Inc., then put them in after the film had been out for three weeks, to incite audiences to go see it again. After a while, Pixar decided they were in danger of falling into formula, so they did away with the outtakes, starting with Finding Nemo. Informationnote  on these outtakes can be viewed here.
  • Barbie in a Mermaid Tale abused the hell out of this for the DVD release: it features outtakes for scenes that don't even appear elsewhere on the DVD.
    • All the recent Barbie movies abuse this one. Unfortunately, they're really animated in the exact same way as the rest of the movie, which ruins the humour (Worse, the "jokes" rarely make any form of sense; they're often clips of the ridiculously hyper-intelligent animals dancing around).
  • The blooper reel for Brother Bear. Try to watch 1:19 without completely losing it.
  • In The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, two episodes (the one with Sheen learning kung-fu; the other with Jet Fusion, a Brosnan-era James Bond expy, on his wedding) featured these kind of bloopers.
  • The first Daria movie "Is It Fall Yet?" has these comprised of still photos, featuring such hilarious moments as Mr. DeMartino's bulging eye coming completely out of its socket and Daria and Jane posing seductively on Tom's car.
  • Cartoon Network once had a recurring interstitial called "Bloopers of the Cartoon Stars".
  • The first episode of The Emperor's New School has The Stinger be an outtake where Malina is holding the wrong item.
    Kuzco: It's supposed to be a scroll, not squirrel. PROPS!
  • The Lion King: For the Blu-ray release, the animators made a short blooper reel. Most memorably, the "Rafiki drops infant Simba" gag, already overdone in various parodies, was officially done. Many of the outtakes were designed around voice acting errors.
    • The original character animators even got to reanimate their scenes.
  • In 1938, as part of Warner Bros.' annual in-house gag reel, Bob Clampett lovingly animated Porky Pig hitting his thumb with a hammer:
    Porky Pig: Son of a bi...bi...son of a bi...bi...son of a bi..bi...gun. Ha, ha, ha! You thought I was gonna say "Son of a bitch", didn't you?
    • There's also the short cartoon Blooper Bunny, which is mostly made up of outtakes from Bugs Bunny's "51 ½th birthday celebration". One of the funniest moments comes from Daffy Duck. After berating Elmer Fudd for one screwup, he slams into a loose floorboard:
      Bugs: Ehhh...NOW can we cut?
      Daffy Duck: You smug son of a... (DIRECTOR CUTS)
  • In the Animaniacs episode "Cutie and the Beast", Dot keeps blowing her opening line. We see take after take being shot until she gets it right, and they have to skip ahead to later in the script because they took up too much time.
  • Lissi und der Wilde Kaiser was given these, because bloopers are tradition with Bully Herbig films.
  • A "blooper reel" exists for My Little Pony: Equestria Girls – Friendship Games. Highlights include Fluttershy fitting a ridiculous number of animals in her backpack, Principal Cinch indulging in Swivel-Chair Antics, and Rainbow Dash going flying with her pony counterpart.
  • The Incredibles has a "bloopers" segment as a DVD extra. Some of the segments are this trope (like a bit where Elastigirl swings from the monorail car and smacks into a pylon), while others are legitimate animation errors (like a bit where the physics go wonky and make Violet's hair fly around wildly). None of these bits are fully rendered, and the deliberate jokes are little more than animatics. The whole thing comes across like a compilation the animators made to amuse themselves, which somehow got released to the public afterwards.
  • Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie has animated bloopers on the DVD bonus content, which makes sense with the series sense of the different characters being actors in the main series. Notable ones include a plane passing above ancient Israel, Larryboy being on the clothesline that snags the van, Junior and Laura Corpsing when they should have been arguing, and Jonah falling off a cliff but luckily he landed in the safety net. There's also an Easter Egg video exclusively of different lines for the talking Jonah plush toy.
  • An episode of KaBlam! had Henry and June show a outtake reel, though they were all of Henry. June finds it funny, but then trips as she's going to turn the page (due to her clumsiness).
  • This promo for Kim Possible shows an "outtake" where Drakken goes off-script to improvise, gettting into an argument with Shego while Kim tries to encourage them back to work.
  • There was an "outtake" in King of the Hill where Luanne's breasts popped out of her shirt [covered with a black bar] as she was talking to Hank in the alley, which prompted everyone to laugh, and Hank said, "Come on, Luanne; you already got the job."
  • The Proud Family has some at the end of the episode "The Legend of Johnny Lovely".
