->''"You wear cartoony boxer shorts, you're begging to have your clothes stolen"''
-->-- ''WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}'', after having [[MuggedForDisguise mugged two Germans for their clothes]].

[[ComedicUnderwearExposure Exposing a character's underwear]] is always good for a laugh. This goes double if they have underwear with a silly or embarrassing print on them. Boxer shorts with polka dots, or better yet hearts on them seem to be popular. To the extent where it seem like nearly everyone in cartoons wear these. Well, that or [[EpilepticTrees these boxers cause trouser accidents]].

Presumably, the fact that they wear utterly tasteless undies adds to the character's discomfort at being de-pantsed, especially if they try to maintain a hard-man reputation.

On the other hand, a female character in this type of underwear can be pretty potent fetish fuel, especially if she looks much too mature to still be wearing them. If a woman is caught in nothing but, say, Snoopy panties, expect a male character to suddenly "remember" how much he's always admired the ''{{Peanuts}}'' gang (which, in fact, is similar to what happened to Chris Tucker in one of the ''Film/RushHour'' films, only with a tattoo instead of panties).

And no, this doesn't necessarily mean WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}} will be on the underwear--though that's not ruled out.

* There was a Wisk Plus laundry detergent ad a while back that had a woman magically teleport the clothes off of a bunch of [[HotMenAtWork hunky construction worker types]], leaving them in their [[MrFanservice underwear]]. [[RuleOfFunny Naturally]], one guy had bunny rabbit print undies, leading to this memorable exchange at the end of the ad:
-->'''First Guy:''' You got ''bunnies'' on your shorts?
-->'''Second Guy:''' ''[archly]'' '''[[KillerRabbit Killer]]''' bunnies.

[[AC:Childish women's underwear]]
* A recent ad for Carls, Jr., hamburgers shows [[ItMakesSenseInContext a Turkish beauty queen walking out onto a hotel pool area]]. She strips off her gown and sash, leaving herself in nothing but a bikini swimsuit illustrated with little cartoons of the burger she's advertising, which looks like childish underwear when viewed from a distance. One mother covers the eyes of her little son, but whether this is DeliberateValuesDissonance or because the bikini looks like silly underwear cannot be determined.
* For one of Metlink's "Fare Evasion Karma" poster, it depicted a lady who was walking with her skirt tucked in her underwear, unaware. Such underwear was depicted as white and adorned with hearts.

[[AC:Other-print boxers]]
* Near the end of Mercedes Lackey's song "The Oklahoma Weed-Whacker Massacre," about a man whose mind snaps under the pressure of competitive lawn maintenance, leading him to run around slicing people's clothing off with his weed-whacker:
-->Next thing you come to see,\\
Well, there's Tulsa County Sheriff,\\
Standin' there in front of God and CBS and who knows who,\\
Wearin' nothin' but his boots\\
And the belt that held his pistol\\
And his TV Tummy-Toner\\
And his best Smurf boxer shorts.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
