->''"I dream of the day when I will learn to stop asking questions to which I will regret learning the answers."''
-->-- '''Roy Greenhilt''', ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''

A character hears something that ends up {{Squick}}ing the hell out of them, such as the sex lives of people they desperately try not to think about in the same sentence as the word "sex" (such as [[ParentalSexualitySquick parents]] or grandparents). Other bodily functions are the other most common variant, such as anything to do with bowel movements or a woman's menstrual cycle. Especially while the speakee is eating.

Named after a typical response for such information, usually abbreviated to [=TMI=] in ValleyGirl speak. Also known as an "Overshare" or -- among the computer nerdly -- a "sharing violation".

Compare with BreadEggsMilkSquick. Sometimes followed by NeverSayThatAgain, IgnoringBySinging, BrainBleach, or ChangeTheUncomfortableSubject. Can be a result of DirtyMindReading or ShowDontTell taken too far. Not related to ''Literature/MoreInformationThanYouRequire''. Contrast YouDontWantToKnow and DontAsk. Similar to SayingTooMuch. Not to be confused with IllNeverTellYouWhatImTellingYou, which involves giving away too much information that was supposed to be secret.


[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In a scene of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', Asuna has this reaction to Makie's... reports... about Negi's "reaction" to them having to squeeze him (while naked) against a wall behind them both, while in the girls' shower, to keep his presence there a secret.
-->'''Makie:''' I think he just "grew".\\
'''Asuna:''' [[AC:You don't have to report that to me!]]
** One of the few places where the translation improves on this:
--->'''Makie:''' Negi-kun's you-know-what is touching my you-know-where!\\
'''Asuna:''' [[AC:You don't have to report that kind of thing to me!]]\\
'''Makie:''' I think his you-know-what just got you-know-whatter!\\
'''Asuna:''' [[AC:Hey! Stop making stuff up!]]
** There is also a scene where Jack Rakan walks away and loudly says he needs to take a number 2, leaving everyone yelling in disgust. [[spoiler:He is lying, though.]]
* Tajima from ''Manga/BigWindup'' tends to do this concerning his deprived sex life and his habits on masturbation. One particular episode had him getting jumped by the other guys:
-->'''One of the players:''' Quiet man, there are girls on this bus!\\
'''Tajima:''' But if I don't do it, it might explode!
* In the ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic!'' novels, during TSR, [[BigBad Gauron]] tells Sōsuke that he fantasized dragging his dead body out of his AS and fucking it up the ass. Sōsuke is horrified, to say the least. And Gauron has the audacity to ask why he's making a face at him. It's made all the funnier by how Gauron attributes Sōsuke's worried and disgusted face to a HeroicBSOD, instead of the more obvious and immediate reason....
* In ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', [[AmbiguouslyGay Poland]] will just tell people how he has to pee as he goes to relieve himself.
* Lampshaded in ''Anime/ExcelSaga'' with Aesop, who has "sporadic anal enlargement syndrome". On the toilet, writhing in agony, he shouts, "Oh, it's big!". Excel immediately runs away. Hyatt, oblivious, asks "What is big?" Excel drags her away and tells her not to ask. The toilet appears out of nowhere in the middle of a baseball field just to make this joke.
* It's a well known fact in the ''{{LightNovel/Durarara}}'' universe that Shinra Kishitani is a kinky little bugger. About 90% of this can be attributed to the fact that Shinra is happy to tell ''anyone'' about whatever dirty thought comes to mind. [[VitriolicBestBuds Shizuo]] and [[{{Tsundere}} Celty]] have both tried to beat this habit out of him. [[TooKinkyToTorture This only encourages him]].
** Erika Karisawa has no problem with telling her friends that she fantasizes about them having gay sex.
* ''Anime/UltimateMuscle'': Suichin and Gazelleman state this (In the dub) when they learn [[Manga/{{Kinnikuman}} Sunshine]] wears earplugs and panda jammies to bed.
* In ''Manga/LuckyStar'', this is exactly what Kagami says one time in response to Konata mentioning the sweat from everyone at Comiket rising up and forming a cloud. Also invoked on different occasions when Konata talks about otaku stuff on a bus, mentions keeping her old school uniform for cosplay purposes, or says something about how boys don't have to worry about bras showing through when wet.
* ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' is really fond of this on multiple occasions. For instance, the episode about poor hygiene at Shinsengumi toilets and ''really'' meticulous explanation as to why.
* In ''LightNovel/SoICantPlayH'', Ryousuke's mother tells the story of how she and his father met. It's really heartwarming... until she says that they had sex that very same night, causing Ryousuke to complain that it ruined the moment.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* In the post-''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'' ComicBook/SecretSix mini-series, Ragdoll reveals that he's been spending his paychecks on a monkey house and a collection of little monkey outfits. Deadshot tells him not to tell them those things.
* During a shopping trip, Chase Stein of the ComicBook/{{Runaways}} tells his girlfriend Gertrude Yorkes that he's been wearing the same six pairs of boxers over and over since they ran away the first time, to which Gert responds, "Some days, it's very hard to love you."
** A much later issue sees 12-year-old Klara Prast trying to hang out with the older kids while they play Truth-or-Dare. Karolina asks Nico which of them is the best kisser. Chase tries to argue that he's the obvious choice. Nico shuts him up by loudly declaring that ''Karolina'' was, in fact, her best kiss. Things quickly go downhill from there, and by the end of it, a horrified Klara declares that she doesn't want to play with the big kids anymore.
* In ''ComicBook/DeathVigil'', we get this gem from Gunnar the Zombie Viking:
-->'''Sam:''' One at a time, men! There's plenty of bloodbath for all!\\
'''Gunnar:''' You talk nonsense, Samuel! There is barely enough blood here to wash my armpits!\\
'''Sam:''' ''(giving a thumbs up)'' Good to know, Gunnar! Gross, but good to know!

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* This trope is practically everywhere in ''Fanfic/AdoptionNightmare''. It's PlayedForLaughs thankfully.
* In ''Fanfic/KyonBigDamnHero'', Koizumi explained at Kyon's request that he gained his ESP powers when both Haruhi and him were undergoing puberty. At the beginning, he found it extremely difficult separating their feelings at first, which led to highly awkward situations. Kyon realizes his mistake and declares that he never wants to clarify that.
* Used twice in one episode of ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'':
-->'''Joey:''' I gotta go take a whiz.\\
'''Yugi:''' Too much information, Joey.\\
'''Yugi:''' Well, Joey, it looks like you learned an important lesson. The only way to kill a zombie is [[RemovingTheHeadOrDestroyingTheBrain to destroy the brain]].\\
'''Joey:''' I also learned that I'm secretly a furry.\\
'''Yugi:''' Once again, too much information, Joey.
* In the ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' fanfic ''[[Fanfic.MedicinalLullaby Medicinal Lullaby]]'', a pissed-off and frustrated Sakura gets [[InVinoVeritas a little too open while drunk:]]
-->'''Sakura:''' Sho...so...its okaaaay. Fuck, I need sex.
* The conversation in ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/39639/1/Estrus/Estrus Estrus]]'' reaches this point on numerous occasions, not least when [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy]] start comparing vibrator models.
-->'''Rarity''': That's enough! That is far more than enough!\\
'''Applejack''': Ah agree with Rarity, emphatically.\\
'''Rainbow Dash''': Awwwww, come on! We never talk about this stuff! We're bonding!\\
'''Fluttershy''': Can't we bond over something else?\\
'''Applejack''': Yeah, this is a bit much. I'd like to think you girls can always talk to me about whatever might be on yer minds... but there is some information ah really don't need. How y'all clop is definitely on that list.
* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7241394/1/Surrender Surrender]]'' when Franchise/HarryPotter and [[HeelFaceTurn a "reformed" Dark Lord]] are trying to determine if Dumbledore really was [[spoiler: planning Harry's death]] they end up dosing the entire Hogwarts staff with [[TruthSerum veritaserum]] and so end up learning far more about their teachers than they ''ever'' wanted to know--such as what the professors ''really'' think of their students, how both [=McGonagall=] and Slughorn had a crush on Tom Riddle before he got all reptilian, that both Snape and Slughorn were in love with Harry's mother, how [[AMindIsATerribleThingToRead Snape, being a natural Leglimens, can't help but read the minds of his hormonal teenage students and so is privy to all of their sexual fantasies regarding centaurs]], and that [=McGonagall=] really wishes Hermione would invest in a hair brush.
* In the Homestuck fan comic ''Webcomic/AlabasterTheDoomedSession'', it's a way of life. Most of the cast is specialized in the delivery of TooMuchInformation, to the [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=236&p=111 horror]] of their interlocutors.
* Done in the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' fic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3222880/1/A_night_out A night out]]'':
--> Garfield just laughed at that. "That's what I love about you two. You're exact opposite but have such a strong friendship."\\
"Friend Raven is the best girl friend that I have. She even helps me during the week of blood." Said Kory with a bit too much enthusiasm.\\
"Too much info Kor. [[IgnoringBySinging LA la la la]]." Said Garfield with his hands on his ears.
* In ''Fanfic/SuperheroRPF'', the Sassgardian's [[CassandraTruth headcanons]] cause this, when it dawns on people that they might be true. How close do you need to be to a dragon to know how their penises look anyway?
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10349675/26/Harry-Potter-and-the-Lightning-Scar Harry Potter and the Lightning Scar]]'':
-->'''Daphne:''' And you should hear what those boys say about ''you''--power is an aphrodisiac, you know, and you put on quite a display with that dragon.\\
'''Harry:''' Nope. Too much information. You stop that!
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7421567/19/Scandalous-Affair Scandalous Affair]]'', Luna has a bit of a problem with oversharing about her and Draco Malfoy's relationship.
-->'''Harry:''' You two are really getting along, then?\\
'''Luna:''' Of course. He is great in bed and a very selfless lover.\\
'''Harry:''' Too much information Luna.\\
'''Luna:''' No, too much information would be me describing what Draco did for me last night...\\
'''Harry:''' Don't want to know!
* In ''Fanfic/GodSlayingBladeWorks'', Odysseus is mostly unimpressed by modern ships and boats, except for the fact that they have bathrooms. He explains that back in his time, the lack of a bathroom made his voyages very uncomfortable. Circe says he didn't have to share that detail.
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8358170/3/The-Hero-and-the-Veela The Hero and the Veela]]'':
-->'''Harry:''' Not bad at all. I think if you started working out a little, you would look quite the little stud in that outfit.\\
'''Dobby:''' Dobby is already quite the stud ever since the girl elves learned that I was bound to you. They says your magic will make me powerful and good breeding stock.\\
'''Harry:''' Too much information Dobby but you go right ahead and have fun.
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9157305/12/Losing-Control Losing Control]]'':
-->'''Dorea Potter:''' What is it with you Potters and not manning up for your loves? Your father and grandfather were the same way and I had to practically rape Charlus to get him to admit his feelings for me.\\
'''Literature/HarryPotter:''' Geez Gran, way too much information there.
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3882344/45/Not-the-Only-Redhead Not the Only Redhead]]'':
-->'''Susan Bones:''' Actually, brother dear, Harry wasn't kissing me. I was kissing him. Can't keep my hands off him, to tell you the truth.\\

'''Tonks:''' It seemed like a good idea at the time, although I call him something else when he's howling in bed...\\
'''[[SpeakInUnison Susan/Ginny]]:''' TMI!
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11838558/1/Donor-Daddy Donor Daddy]]'', Hermione wants a baby but not a second husband.
-->'''Ginny:''' Eeww, Hermione, what are you going to do? Conjure a dick and have your way with it?\\
'''Hermione:''' No, I just need the sperm; artificial insemination. If I wanted a dick, I'd go out and buy a dildo.\\
'''Harry:''' Too much information!
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10819050/1/Too-Many-Travellers Too Many Travellers]]'', [=McGonagall=] was Head Girl when Tom Riddle was Head Boy.
-->'''[=McGonagall=]:''' He was a handsome boy. And he could do things with his tongue that...\\
'''Harry:''' Too much information!
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9788639/6/Of-Darkening-Souls Of Darkening Souls]]'':
-->'''Hermione:''' Stop playing with your robes or I swear to Merlin I will transfigure your fingers into jelly, and then we'll see how you manage to fiddle with them.\\
'''Harry:''' No need for threats, the velvet just feels a little funny. Not to mention the trousers are so tight I can feel my bal-\\
'''Hermione:''' Too much information!
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12188150/11/Like-Grains-of-Sand-in-the-Hourglass Like Grains of Sand in the Hourglass]]'':
-->'''Harry:''' I'm mad that you felt the need to hide this for so long, Dora. A few weeks, I get that. Even a few months were understandable. But you should have said something when we started dating. By the time you got my shirt off at minimum.\\
'''Hermione:''' Too much information, Harry.
* Ash's Pokédex in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' often reveals stuff that Ash and his friends didn't ''really'' need to know.
* In the ''Frozen'' fanfic ''Fanfic/DarknessBurning'', Anna spills too much about her sex life with her husband for her sister Elsa to handle:
-->''"Every time I've seen you, you've been holding Elias," she says because she still can't work out how or why she came out here. "Are you ever going to put him down?"''
-->''"I haven't seen him for two months! Besides, I did put him down, to sleep, and when Joe and I were-"''
-->''"I believe you," Elsa says. Sometimes, Anna can be a little too open in her speech.''

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* In ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', during the trolls' performance of "Fixer Upper":
-->'''Bulda:''' ''Is it the way that he runs scared?''\\
'''Male Troll 3:''' ''Or that he’s socially impaired?''\\

'''Anna:''' I did not need to know that...

'''Mal:''' Oh God! I can't ''know'' that!\\
'''Jayne:''' I could stand to hear a little more.
* From ''Film/PulpFiction'':
-->'''Vincent:''' I'm gonna take a piss.\\
'''Mia:''' That was a little bit more information than I needed Vince, but go right ahead.
** From the same movie, Christopher Walken's character didn't really have to tell young Butch ''how'' his father hid the watch from the Vietcong, but decided to leave [[AssShove that detail intact]]. And mentioned it many times. Then mentioned that he hid the watch in much the same way once Butch's father passed.
* From ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'':
-->'''Indy:''' How did you know she was a Nazi?\\
'''Henry Jones:''' She talks in her sleep. ''(followed by a shocked look from Indy)''
* The car commercial from ''Film/SouthlandTales''. For those who don't know what this is about, count yourselves lucky and be grateful. If you would like to join the agonized ranks of those who need BrainBleach... [[http://www.agonybooth.com/recaps/Southland_Tales_2006.aspx?Page=5 Here.]] [[HeroicSacrifice You will not be forgotten.]]
* In ''Film/BringItOn'', the following exchange occurs when Missy intercepts her brother Cliff as he's visiting the cheer squad's car wash fundraiser:
-->'''Missy:''' Hey, perv.\\
'''Cliff:''' Gahhh!\\
'''Missy:''' Hand over your fifteen bucks or get out of here.\\
'''Cliff:''' What are you doing?\\
'''Missy:''' [[AllMenArePerverts Making money from guys oogling my goodies]].\\
'''Cliff:''' Aww, I didn't need to hear that. That was an overshare.
* In ''Film/EasyA'', Olive has the following conversation with her mother:
-->'''Rosemary:''' I had a horrible reputation.\\
'''Olive:''' Why?\\
'''Rosemary:''' Because I slept with a whole bunch of people. [[BiTheWay Mostly guys]].\\
'''Olive:''' Mom!
* ''Film/WereTheMillers'': The American tourists the Millers can't seem to get away from are having marital problems.
-->'''Edie''': I'm not as tight as I used to be. Sometimes Don just falls out. It's like throwing a hot dog down a hallway.
* In ''Film/PaperMoon'', Addie tells Moses that Trixie is sick to keep him away from her for a while, but he wants to see her. Imogene then mentions that it's due to her period, which causes Moses to immediately back off.
* TheChosenOne in ''Film/KungPowEnterTheFist'' says this after Master Tang goes on a little too long about how a friend of his told him about the coming of the chosen one, ending with said friend accidentally killing a dog with his [[{{Gasshole}} noxious farts.]]
-->'''Master Tang:''' Oh, you won't ''believe'' what happened next!\\
'''The Chosen One:''' No, please.
* A RunningGag in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' is that Ash and his friends often find Dexter's information to be a little ''too'' descriptive for their taste, or sometimes revealing facts they didn't really need to know.

* Gregory draws comic strips in ''Literature/DiaryOfAWimpyKid'' and suggests giving improvements to other peoples' behaviours; and one of them was telling people not to discuss incredibly private and personal matters ''in the middle of a fast food restaurant''.
* One of Daniel Waterhouse's relatives in ''Literature/{{Quicksilver}}'' by Neal Stephenson
* Peter David is fond of doing this sort of gag in his ''Franchise/StarTrek'' novels.
-->'''Morgan:''' A Level One diagnostic is like having a gynecological exam from head to toe.\\
'''Soleta:''' Captain, request permission to forget what I just heard.\\
'''Calhoun:''' Granted, and I'll join you.
* Nutt, from ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'', generally speaks in lectures, and at one point gives Ponder a taste of his own medicine. He also tells the woman he has [[JustFriends a bit of a crush on]] that he is in fact staring at her arms, because they're such remarkably nice arms; this doesn't seem intended as flirting but rather a friendly compliment combined with wishing to clear up what he was doing. He also shares pertinent but wholly unnecessary details about his bodily functions, which is seen as part of his habit of being "precise but odd".
* ''Literature/SeptimusHeap'': Jenna isn't all too thrilled at hearing Septimus's detailed explanation of what the "Deadly Stinking Black Slush" is.
* ''Literature/{{Ghost}}'': On finding out [[spoiler:[[ParentalSexualitySquick that their parents are both into BDSM]]]], Pam and Courtney have this reaction, Courtney saying that she needs some [[BrainBleach brain floss]], and Pam's horrified reaction immortalized on the (now discontinued) [[MemeticMutation OH JOHN RINGO NO]] t-shirt.
* In ''Literature/IslandInTheSeaOfTime'', Marian Alston is mortified when her Fiernan lover Swindapa glowingly tells her family in considerable detail just how good Alston is in bed.
* This is what ends the first day of George Wickham's murder trial in ''Literature/DeathComesToPemberley''; a witness admits to the entire court she had heard an argument between the victim and his alleged murderer from the washroom.
* In the ''Series/VeronicaMars'' spin-off novel ''The Thousand Dollar Tan Line'', Keith jokingly asks Veronica if there are any [=MILFs=] in the market for a [[spoiler:cripple]], and she implores him never to use the term "MILF" in front of her again.
* In ''Literature/TheWitchlands'', when Kullen explains to his best friend Merik that his uncontrollable bursts of magic are connected to his attraction to Safi, he starts talking about the times he and his girlfriend Ryber were having sex. Merik is very quick to change the topic.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* The opening scene of an episode of ''Series/BrothersAndSisters'' has ''virtually the entire family'' reveal what music they lost their virginity to (with Kevin, the gay one, asking with which sex). [[ApronMatron Nora]] reveals that her first time wasn't with the man she would later marry, but another guy ([[ChekhovsGun guess who shows up later]]), it was to "Pretty Woman" and it was in the back seat of his car. As she starts on the height differential and how that was dealt with, the others collectively walk out, deciding that they don't need to hear this about their own mother.
* In one episode of Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit, Dr. Warner gets ready to list the contents of a puddle of vomit at a crime scene, all while Olivia and Eliot are eating lunch. Olivia asks for a warning first, then pushes away her salad, all while Eliot continues to munch away at his sandwich.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** A RunningGag is Anya eagerly telling the Scoobies details of her sex life with Xander that everyone (including Xander) would rather she kept private.
** The Scoobies reaction whenever the Buffybot, a SexBot that Spike has programmed to fulfil his desire for Buffy, gives them information on her relationship with Spike.
--->'''Willow:''' ''(thinking she's talking to Buffy)'' So just this one time you just did something kinda crazy?\\
'''Buffybot:''' It wasn't one time. It was lots of times, and lots of different ways. I can make sketches!\\
'''Willow:''' ''No!''
** And later:
--->'''Xander:''' Spike must have had her built so he could program her t--\\
'''Buffy:''' ''(horrified)'' Oh god.\\
'''Willow:''' Yikes. Imagine the things--\\
'''Buffy:''' No! No, ''no'' imagining. Any of you.\\
'''Xander:''' ''(raises his hand)'' Already got the visual.
* ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'':
** In one episode, Dr. Kelso describes how he and his crippled obese wife had sex the previous evening. Dr. Cox then suggests to the rest of of Kelso's involuntary audience that they forget about what they just heard.
** A teenaged patient asks Dr Cox how he's doing, and he replies that he's recently lost the ability to process dairy, leading to Carla saying "Woah! T.M.I! Am I right, Josh? Too Much Information?" Dr Cox then tells Josh that he'll have a word with his parents "and you can chat with [[TotallyRadical Nurse Early Nineties Catchphrases]]."
* In ''Series/BurnNotice'', Sam recounts a particularly nasty GroinAttack he suffered:
-->'''Sam:''' He held a switchblade to a very sensitive region of Sam Axe that only Elsa and Sandino get to touch.\\
'''Jesse:''' Who?\\
'''Sam:''' Sandino's my masseur.\\
'''Jesse:''' TMI, Sam. TMI.
* In ''Series/MyFamily'', Ben lies to Susan and then abruptly switches to the truth after she returns from a vacation.
-->'''Susan:''' ''(picking up her red dress)'' What ''happened'' to this?\\
'''Ben:''' Nick was wearing it when I was trying to strangle him down the pub. ''(Susan looks at him)'' Well, I was a bit tense, you know, because Michael stole all the doorknobs and held me hostage, and Abby burned my foot in the... uh... soup.\\
''(long pause)''\\
'''Susan:''' I think I prefer it when you lie.
* From the Canadian TV series ''Series/ButchPattersonPrivateDick'':
-->'''Blanche:''' Vance knew he wouldn't last a week in a maximum-security prison.\\
'''Butch:''' You know, once you get used to [[PrisonRape the sodomy]], the rest of it is pretty easy to take.
* ''Series/BabylonFive'':
** When Lennier sees Londo Mollari, who looks otherwise indistinguishable from humans, use a long tentacle that comes out of his torso to cheat at cards, he asks him about it. It leads to this infamous conversation:
--->'''Londo Mollari:''' ''[picks up a figure of the Centauri Goddess of Passion, a nude woman surrounded by tentacles]'' Here, the goddess Li. A synthesis of male and female Centauri. What, did you think these were for decoration?\\
'''Lennier:''' ... I am going to take a vow of silence about this entire conversation.
** Commander Ivanova also suffers from these periodically, with the best example being the time that Vir approaches her to ask what women want "when things get intimate." This leads to a very awkward discussion of Centauri sexual anatomy and practices. She also had the unenviable responsibility of of helping Delenn adjust to life as a partially-human female, and all the hygiene concerns that come along with it.
* In the ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' episode "Looking for ''Par'mach'' in All the Wrong Places", Bashir's reaction to Quark and the Klingon chick and then Worf and Dax's explanations of how they acquired their collections of bruises and cuts they come in to have treated at the end of the episode. The exact phrasing is more like, "I didn't really need to have that image running around in my head right now," and at the end he comments that [[CrowningMomentOfFunny he ''really'' needs to stop asking people what they have been doing.]]
** ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' has a similar example with the Doctor (no, not [[Series/DoctorWho that one]]) helping Vorik with his ''[[MateOrDie Pon Farr]]''; at one point, he starts telling Captain Janeway about other species' mating rituals until she [[DeathGlare glares]] him into silence.
** And in the same vein, there's the ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' episode "Cogenitor," in which our heroes meet a [[BizarreAlienSexes tri-gendered species]]. Trip wonders aloud how such a species would mate, and Phlox starts to provide a verbal explanation until Trip decides that he'd rather not hear it. Not to be deterred, Phlox then goes to a wall panel while cheerfully declaring, "Well, hmm hmm, I have ''pictures''!" Trip again decides that he'd rather not know.
* ''Series/ICarly'': Despite the subtleties, innuendos may be lampshaded in the show time by time.
** In "iCarly Awards":
--->'''Carly:''' You know, it's always been a dream of mine to host the iCarly Awards.\\
'''Sam:''' Whoa, too much information!\\
'''Carly:''' Hey, don't go there!\\
''(much later in the show)''\\
'''Sam:''' These guys take this ''(blows through bottle)'' to a whole new level.\\
'''Carly:''' This -- will ''blow'' you away. ''(laughs)''\\
'''Sam:''' ''(shaking her head)'' Oh, Carly...\\
'''Carly:''' Just watch.
* It's not as explicit, but when Col. Potter assumes command of the 4077th ''Series/{{MASH}}'' he learns more than he wants to when he's reviewing his officers. He's commended Major Houlihan, who appears to be the OnlySaneMan, for her spotless record, and then moves on to the next officer...
-->'''Potter:''' Major Frank Burns.\\
'''Margaret:''' JustFriends, sir. ''(realizing)'' I mean, not here, sir.
* In an episode of ''Series/MurphyBrown'', Murphy's a few hours away from getting it on with Peter Hunt... and she goes to ''Eldin'' for advice:
-->'''Murphy:''' I'm a mother, for God's sake; I've got stretch marks.\\
'''Eldin:''' ''Too much information! Too much information!''
* In the documentary ''Series/WorstJobsInHistory'', a scientist gives the host and [[ButtMonkey hapless participant]], Tony Robinson[[note]]In a role oddly reminiscent of his role in ''Series/{{Blackadder}}''[[/note]], an unpleasant overview of a food-taster's duties, including what would happen if the food was poisoned with arsenic. Around the time the scientist starts talking about "purging," Robinson gives in and says "that's enough."
* Tying in with the RealLife medical examples below, the opening sequence of ''Series/TheCommish'' showed the title character absent-mindedly munching a pepperoni sandwich while reading a book titled ''Tissue Decomposition: A Homicide Primer''. In the pilot episode, the protagonist squicks out an evaluation board (sent to evaluate him for a high-ranking position in another city) by nervously babbling on about the above topic while they're all having lunch.
* There's an episode of ''Series/{{Cheers}}'' where Cliff engages in slang with another mailman. Norm says "I thought about asking Cliff what he meant, but then I realized -- he might ''tell'' me!"
* ''Series/{{Misfits}}'': "All right. Yes. It's my wank-sock."
** Also, when Simon is under the influence of Alisha's pheromone manipulation:
--->'''Simon:''' I want to rip your clothes off and piss on your tits!\\
'''Nathan:''' That's the kind of thing you should keep between you and your Internet Service Provider...
** Half the dialogue from this show qualifies as TooMuchInformation. But Nathan and Kelly manage to take it to new heights in season 2, when their agent, Laura, asks to know about their previous misdemeanors so she's prepared if the media find out. Nathan proceeds to tell a ''horrible'' story about picking up a (probably heavily sedated) girl in a dentist's waiting room, having sex with her, and accidentally "tripling" himself mid-coitus (it's "when you cum, puke and shit yourself all at once")
--->'''Laura:''' ''(looking shellshocked)'' Anything else?\\
'''Kelly:''' I once shagged a monkey.\\
'''Nathan:''' Technically it was a gorilla.
* One episode of ''Series/{{Friends}}'' had Chandler's mom reveal on national television that she gets a craving for kung-pow chicken after sex, followed by Chandler yelling, "That's too much information!"
** Tom Selleck's first episode as Richard gives us this exchange:
--->'''Monica:''' I am dating a man whose pool I once ''peed'' in.\\
'''Richard:''' I didn't need to know that.
* In an episode of ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'', Peg starts being a little overly friendly with another man, not knowing that he's gay and with someone else. When the guy's concerned partner shows up at the house, Al is willing to talk to him and give him advice (especially when he finds out the guy can cook) but he does ''not'' want to hear about their sex life, stopping him when mentions that.
* From the ''Series/HannahMontana'' episode "I Honestly Love You (No, Not You)":
-->'''Lilly:''' Miley, I know how he feels. I can tell by the way he looks at me! Even when I have a pimple. I never told you this, but... that's why he calls me "Lillypop".\\
'''Miley:''' I could've gone my whole life not knowing that.
* In one episode of ''Series/GreenWing'' the majority of the cast are eating dinner at a restaurant playing a game where each of them tells the best and the worst of who they've been compared to, in terms of looks (e.g. Naughty Rachel has been compared to [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]] and [[Franchise/TheMuppets Miss Piggy]].) Statham comes in late from a telephone call and the game isn't explained very well, so he tells of his best and worst sexual encounters. The worst was with a woman who was on a very heavy period and the best was the mother of two of the characters. After he finishes there's a long pause and the conversation is moved along.
%%* "[[{{SNL}} The Lov-ahs]]." Dear ''God'', "[[SickeninglySweethearts The Lov-ahs]]."
* ''Series/BestF<riendsWhenever'':
-->'''Barry:''' Naldo, why were you eating a hot dog in my tuxedo?\\
'''Naldo:''' Cause I wasn't going to eat a hot dog ''naked''.\\
'''Barry:''' It's really my fault for asking.
* ''Series/{{Baggage}}'' turns this into a GameShow, by having potential dates hope that their embarrassing personal secrets don't leave too much of a negative impression on a potential bachelor(ette). It's even got Jerry Springer.
* A running gag in the ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' episode "The Day the Magic Died" when the girl's father and his fiancee are visiting is that she goes on and on about their great sex life, to the point that Phoebe and Paige use the first opportunity to flee, leaving poor pregnant Piper who has to stay in bed to fend for herself.
* In the ''Series/VeronicaMars'' first season episode "The Wrath of Con", a flashback shows Veronica, Duncan, Lily and Logan playing "INever". Duncan says, "I've never seen my parents have sex." Lily has, she drinks, and begins to describe it in detail; Duncan, her brother, can't handle this, covers his ears and face and pleads for Lily to stop.
* In ''Series/TheWestWing'' episode "Take Out the Trash Day", Josh tells C.J. Congress will only approve funding for teachers if they agree that in Sex Ed classes kids will be taught "abstinence only". C.J. replies, "I would not have trouble passing such a class." Josh gets an expression like he'd rather not have heard that.
** Later in the episode, President Bartlett is reading a report on what should really be taught in sex education classes (which Sam has renamed "everything but"):
--->'''Mrs. Landingham:''' Would you like to share what's in that report, sir?\\
'''President Bartlett:''' With you?\\
'''Mrs. Landingham:''' Yes.\\
'''President Bartlett:''' No.\\
'''Mrs. Landingham:''' May I ask why not, sir?\\
'''President Bartlett:''' Because I'd rather not be in therapy for the rest of my life.
** Then there's the second season episode "The Midterms", and this conversation between Charlie and Leo:
--->'''Charlie:''' Zoey and I are going out. I'll be on my pager.\\
'''Leo:''' You're going out?\\
'''Charlie:''' Yeah.\\
'''Leo:''' You're taking extra protection, right?\\
'''Charlie:''' (''taken aback'') Hey, Leo...\\
'''Leo:''' [[ItMakesSenseInContext Secret Service protection, Charlie]]! But thanks for loading me up with that image.
* The more socially awkward characters in ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' tend to have this problem. Sheldon has a habit of discussing his bathroom habits, Leonard's mom freely discusses her sex life (and also [[CallingYourBathroomBreaks calls her bathroom breaks]]), and pretty much everything that comes out of Amy Farrah Fowler's mouth.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'':
** In the episode [[Recap/SupernaturalS09E02DevilMayCare "Devil May Care" (S09, Ep02)]], Dean says "okay, overshare" after Kevin says,"It's been a bad couple of days, I haven't slept, I haven't eaten... I’m pretty backed up."
** When Sam decides to tell Dean why he trusts Ruby (a demon), he also reveals his very sexual relationship with her.
--->'''Dean:''' Sam!\\
'''Sam:''' Yeah?\\
'''Dean:''' Too much information!\\
'''Sam:''' Hey, I told you I was coming clean.\\
'''Dean:''' Yeah, but now I feel dirty.
* ''Series/BronBroen'': [[AmbiguousDisorder Saga Norén]] is prone to this. Her idea of idle conversation in one episode is announcing that she had just gotten her period that morning.
* On an episode of ''Series/PushingDaisies'', Ned worries what would have happened if [[ItMakesSenseInContext he'd been attacked by bees]] while in his underwear, and Emerson immediately shushes him with, "Don't go putting that image in my head."
* ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'':
** A group of naval officers are lost at sea in a raft.
--->'''First Sailor:''' Still no sign of land. How long is it?\\
'''Second Sailor:''' That's a rather personal question, sir.
** The school play of "Seven Brides For Seven Brothers".
--->'''Headmaster:''' Fetch hither the master on duty that the seven brides may marry the seven brothers.\\
'''Padre:''' (''entering'') Sorry I'm late, Headmaster--I've been wrestling with Plato.\\
'''Headmaster:''' What you do on your own time, Padre, is written on the walls of the vestry.
* In Season 5's episode of ''Series/TheWalkingDead'', "Self Help", Abraham and Glenn have a moment, where Abraham praises Glenn for staying with him and staying true to his word that he would help him get Eugene to Washington, D.C. Abraham then ends the conversation by declaring he's going to get himself some ass. Glenn says, to the awkward silence, "More than I really needed to know, but okay."
* Moss from ''Series/TheITCrowd'' sometimes had this reaction to relatively innocent subjects, such as learning that a colleague was having a baby.
* Woody the Coroner from ''Series/{{Psych}}'' invokes this...the wrong way.
-->'''Woody:''' As anyone good at foreplay can tell you, electricity always leave a mark. I know, I know, TMI: [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Tell More Information]]. You see, a flashlight battery and a paper clip--
* In ''Series/HappyEndings'':
** Season one's "Barefoot Pedaler":
--->'''Penny:''' You just admitted to sleeping with thousands of women. Plus, you're married and you're going to Wisconsin by ''bus''. And only two of those things are turn-ons.\\
'''Max:''' So, which two were the turn-ons?\\
'''Penny:''' A lady never tells! Wisconsin and buses. ''(groans from the others)''\\
'''Brad:''' Me too!

* Possibly the UrExample: ScreaminJayHawkins with "Constipation Blues."
* In [[Music/WeirdAlYankovic Weird Al]]'s song, "Trapped in the Drive-thru", the husband's voice reminds the voice box lady of a guy named Paul she cheated Geometry test answers off of last year. The husband replies and talks about another Paul he knew. Paul was his plumber, who is bald, has a bladder problem, and has a toe infection. The voice box lady says, "Mr., please! You can stop right there! That's more than I needed to know!" Yes, this is a song!
* [[Music/ToshimitsuDeyama Toshi]] doing an MC for Music/XJapan at the Wiltern in Los Angeles: "We've gained a lot, but we've lost a lot too. We've been fucked and we've been sucked."
* Music/ThePolice song "Too Much Information", oddly enough, is a subversion of this trope -- it's about someone who simply has too much knowledge in their brain.
* Likewise the case for Music/DuranDuran's "Too Much Information", as it is really about the effect of media bombardment.
* Played straight with the Music/JoanJett song "TMI" -- it's a ProtestSong about social media and tabloids that are bombarding everyone with too many details about what people are eating, wearing, and sleeping with and all the other pointless details all the time.
* Music/TheOffspring's "Spare Me the Details". The story is that the narrator's girlfriend got drunk and had sex with some other dude, and now his friend seems to want to tell him about the event in graphic detail (it's referred to as a "play-by-play" at one point) -- partially because he doesn't want to think about the event in general, and partially because the specifics are way, ''way'' more information than he wants to hear.
-->Now I don't need to hear\\
About the sounds they were making\\
And I don't need to hear\\
About how long it was taking\\
Or how the walls they were shaking
* Music/CarlySimon's "We Have No Secrets" finds its narrator addressing this with her lover.
-->We share a cast of characters from A to Z\\
We know each other's fantasies\\
And though we know each other better when we explore\\
Sometimes I wish\\
Often I wish\\
That I never knew some of those secrets of yours

* In a strip of ''ComicStrip/{{Zits}}'', Jeremy comments on Pierce's stylish "socks", which are actually tattoos, while they're getting changed in the locker room. Pierce explains that they cut down on laundry, and goes on to say that he's considering replacing his underwear as well.
-->'''Jeremy:''' Shut it down, dude!

[[folder:Stand-up Comedy]]
* ChristopherTitus made reference to this trope when he asked his father how he was conceived (he wanted a romantic story of his parents that didn't end with the cops getting called). His father was... detailed.
-->'''Papa Titus''': She could do this thing with her leg and a nightstand-
-->'''Titus''': *hands spread* Dad! *waves his hands mouthing 'no'*
** Later...
-->'''Papa Titus''': So things get hot and heavy and I realize 'alright, I'm gettin' ready to drop the hog!'
-->'''Titus:''': *hands spread* Daaaad! I don't know what that means, but PLEASE don't say it again!
** Then...
-->'''Papa Titus''': And in the middle of it son! I mean, I am knee-deep-
-->'''Titus:''': DAD!

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* TabletopGame/{{FATAL}} is notorious for this.
* In ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'', the entire Venusian species will not shut up unless they're trying to be stealthy and have no taboos about discussing any topic, often horrifying their Earthling party members.

* ''Theatre/NextToNormal'' has a mother who's trying a ''little'' too hard to [[StepfordSmiler pretend that everything's great]] spring this on her daughter:
-->'''Diana:''' I'm going to go have sex with your father.\\
'''Natalie:''' Great, thanks. I'm so glad I know that.
* In ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', this is Jefferson, Madison, and Burr's reaction when Hamilton refutes their accusations of speculation by going into great detail about the affair for which he was blackmailed... and then Hamilton shares all the details with the entire world in "The Reynolds Pamphlet". Historical accounts of the meeting note that Hamilton's accusers[[note]]in reality, Burr and Madison were not involved and the matter unfolded over several years[[/note]] were satisfied with the initial proof but he ''insisted'' on telling them all the sordid details.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/RuneScape'' gave us this (paraphrased) example during one of the quests:
-->'''Player Character:''' How do you "accidentally" trip and carve half a map into someone's wooden leg?\\
'''Captain Donnie:''' Well, I was drinking rubbing alcohol mixed with gunpowder and cinnamon when...\\
'''Player Character:''' I'm leaving now.
* In the third ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' game, Mr. Grossberg's "gut feelings" about how the case is going come from a lot lower than his gut. And he tells you about it every five minutes. It's his hemorrhoids. After the case, Mia asks him to stop talking about them.
** Also Phoenix's recurring defense line of proving an unindentified person in a mask/costume/uniform not to be the defendant goes along the lines ''"Anyone could wear that! Even me!"''. In case [[spoiler:3-3]], it culminates in him saying the same about a [[FanserviceCostumes waitress uniform]]. The judge requests to spare the court from further [[FanDisservice mental anguish from the image]].
* ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal'':
-->'''[[FakeUltimateHero Captain Qwark]]:''' I thought we agreed to put that jungle business behind us!\\
'''[[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys Skrunch]]:''' [MONKEY NOISE]\\
'''Qwark:''' It was mating season! How could I have known she was your sister?\\
''(notices Ratchet and Clank, laughs nervously)''\\
'''Qwark:''' How long have you two been standing there?\\
'''Clank:''' Too long.
* ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'': "Some krogan believe that testicle transplants will improve their virility, counteract the effects of the genophage. It doesn't work, but that doesn't stop them from buying. They'll pay ten thousand credits for each one -- [[BizarreAlienBiology that's forty thousand for a whole set.]] [[CutLexLuthorACheck Someone's making a killing out there.]]"
** Shepard says this to [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 Thane]] when he's describing the drell race's ability to perfectly recall any memory.
--->'''Thane:''' Thinking about a moment brings back the smell of cut grass, the warmth of another hand on yours, the taste of another's tongue in your mouth. Wouldn't you rather lose yourself in such a memory, rather than spend a night alone?\\
'''Shepard:''' Isn't that a rather personal memory to talk about?
** In [[VideoGame/MassEffect3 the third game]], Liara has this reaction to her father [[spoiler:Matriarch Aethyta]] reminiscing about her mother "Nezzy"'s [[BuxomIsBetter magnificent rack]], complete with WolfWhistle.
--->'''Liara:''' You don't need to tell me everything.
** This is also James' reaction to being told by EDI that [[InterspeciesRomance Shepard and Tali got together]] in the last game (if that's the case). Followed by a sarcastic [[UnwantedAssistance "Thank you, EDI"]] from Shepard.
** Eve complains that she ''really'' gets upset when Mordin, discussing her treatment, starts rambling on about the many ways she could die horribly.
* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' has a conversation where Anders and Isabela realize that they had an [[NoodleIncident undescribed sexual encounter]] in the first game's brothel. Hawke or Varric will cut the conversation short when Isabela mentions Anders' "[[PowerPerversionPotential electricity thing]]".
** Hawke also walks in on [[ReallyGetsAround Isabela]] exiting her appointment with [[CombatMedic Anders]] (who runs a clinic) for STD treatment.
*** Alternately, Hawke can walk in on Anders treating Seneschal Bran for an STD he is implied to have caught from Isabella. This only happens if the player has previously gone to Fenris' house and overheard him talking to Isabella about not having to pay property taxes.
** In one banter between Isabela and Aveline when asking about Aveline's new husband, Isabela is either providing a glimpse at her rather odd attitude to sex, or pulls a rather mean prank on Aveline:
--->'''Isabella:''' How good is [[SecondLove Donnic]]? Is he cock-sure?\\
'''Aveline:''' ''(sighs)'' Just get it out of your system...\\
'''Isabella:''' Did he curl your toes? Dwarf your beard? Arl your Emon[[note]]Arl Emon is a major [=NPC=] in the first game.[[/note]]? Shank your Jory[[note]]Ser Jory ends up getting shanked in Dragon Age[[/note]]? Praise your Maker[[note]]"Praise the Maker" is the local form of "Thank God"[[/note]]? Grope your grinder? Established his canon? Dampen your Divine[[note]]The Divine is the female Pope of the Chantry[[/note]]? Grey your Warden[[note]]The Grey Wardens are an order of warriors, and the PC of the first game is a Grey Warden[[/note]]? Pamper your Paragon[[note]]The deified ancestors of the dwarves[[/note]]? Float your Frigate? How about: Satisfy a demand of your Qun[[note]]A divine order of the world worshiped and obeyed by the Qunari without question[[/note]]? Or did he cup your Joining[[note]]The Joining ceremony of the Gey Warden involves drinking from a cup[[/note]]? Or did he master your Taint[[note]]A magical disease spread by monsters[[/note]]? That's an old one.\\
'''Aveline:''' Yes, alright! He's an incredibly proficient lover. Happy?\\
'''Isabella:''' [[HypocriticalHumor Well, that's rather personal, don't you think?]]
* ''VideoGame/PokerNightAtTheInventory'': [[Webcomic/PennyArcade Tycho]] has a bad habit of inserting his highly detailed [[BestialityIsDepraved animal fetishes]] into the conversation.
-->'''Strong Bad:''' ''(singing)'' Too much information, man. You're Too-Much-Information Man.
* ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' does this twice.
** Magnus inquiring why Pit goes in the hot springs fully dressed.
--->'''Pit:''' The angel's code of conduct says I must always be ready for duty!\\
'''Magnus:''' Guess you wouldn't be an angel if you didn't do things by the book.\\
'''Pit:''' Yeah. And, I don't want to steam the sacred buns...\\
'''Magnus:''' '''[[{{Squick}} We're done talking about this.]]'''
** Arlon tells Pit and Palutena that he will gird his loins for their arrival. Pit is noticeably disturbed.
--->'''Pit:''' TMI! Nobody wants to hear about your loins!
** Pit is at it ''again'' in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. For Wii U]]'' during Wario's episode of Palutena's Guidance. While she does try to be helpful in describing his attacks, the conversation invariably ventures towards his {{fartillery}}. Pit is disturbed.
--->"...This job is really the worst sometimes."
* In ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'', most characters have a subtitle that describes a little about them, like Mordecai "The Hunter" or Marcus Kinkaid (No Refunds!). Guess what boss character Nine-Toes' title is? ''"Also, he has three balls."'' Yeah, we ''really'' didn't need to know that.
** Then in VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}, a conversation can be heard in the Crimson Raider base between the original vault hunters:
--->'''Lilith:''' ''(talking to Roland)'' If you die, I'm going to be really pissed!\\
'''Roland:''' Noted...\\
'''Lilith:''' ...And if you live, I'm tearing those clothes right off your body.\\
'''Roland:''' Also noted.\\
'''Mordecai:''' Eegh, Lilith. Nobody wants to hear that!\\
'''Brick:''' ''(lewdly)'' Go on...
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'': A TMI conversation actually happens ''after'' the female [[HelloInsertNameHere Avatar]] walks in on [[LoveableRogue Gaius]] in the bath.
-->'''Avatar:''' Gaius, I am SO sorry about earlier! I had no idea you were in the bath...\\
'''Gaius:''' Aw, no worries. At least I hadn't taken off my smallclothes yet, eh? Er, but I did want to mention I'm usually in much better shape. With the stress of this blasted war, I've been eatin' more sweets than usual. Usually I'm a real piece of eye candy. Belly like a washboard, glutes like a lumberja--\\
'''Avatar:''' Okay, then!
* ''VideoGame/BanjoTooie'': After beating Canary Mary in a minecart race, Mary rewards Banjo and Kazooie with a Jiggy, stating that it was wedged under her wing for days, much to Kazooie's disgust. Later, when they win a rematch and win a Cheato page, Mary begins to say where it was wedged in, and Kazooie promptly shuts her up.
* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'' has Snake's Codec call to Otacon while hiding in a trash can/dumpster. When Otacon asks Snake how he knows how it is where the household dumps their waste, Snake explains in full, such as it smelling bad from last night's leftovers from dinner, as well as bugs crawling around his face, apparently roaches, a lot of them, as well as something crawling up his leg, leaving Otacon completely grossed out by the end. When questioned by Otacon whether he even feels sick from this, Snake mentions that he's perfectly willing to even crawl into a toilet as long as it at least allows him to hide from the enemy effectively.
* Part of the ending of ''Spandex Force'' is the following exchange.
-->'''Player Character:''' The Crossdresser! What a lovely gown you have on.\\
'''The Crossdresser:''' Why thank you. I just thought I'd celebrate your victory. I even put on a matching corset and stockings and--\\
'''Player Character:''' TOO MUCH INFORMATION!
* ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness'' has the renowned "Netherworld's ultimate zombie", featuring "the fists of a Dark Karate master, the legs of the fastest demon in the Netherworld, the brain of Mahogany, a famous sorcerer, the iron body of Hercules...and ''a horse wiener''". Notably, only the latter freaks Laharl out, but barely for just being "too much information", rather for being an ''equippable item'' that gives a significant power boost while on the first playthrough.
* Happens in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Golden'' if the MC goes gets lost with Naoto during the ski trip. When they end up holed up in an abandoned cottage and forced to wait out a blizzard, Naoto awkwardly blurts out that the "[[IntimateHealing huddling together to share body heat]]" thing only works if your clothes are wet or one person has a dangerously low body temperature, before realizing that the advice was completely unsolicited.
* ''VideoGame/Injustice2'' has an exchange between Captain Cold and The Flash:
-->'''Captain Cold:''' Good thing you're wearing longjohns.\\
'''The Flash:''' [[GoingCommando I'm totally commando under here!]]\\
'''Captain Cold:''' ...ugh, ''TMI''!

* In ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'':
** [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20010617.html This strip]] has the narrator keep changing the scene because everybody is talking about things you ''really'' don't want to hear about. Finally, he ends up with Schlock explaining the inner workings of carboscilicate amorph reproduction to Admiral Breya -- or rather, him wrapping up such an explanation. The narrator comments: "That was either too much, or too little information. Either way, it's disturbing." The last one was arguably too little information; it turns out not to be disgusting at all -- just a bit creepy.
** [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2000-11-30 Gerbils are better than rats]]. On the next page, Schlock describes the differences he noticed and Tagon gets "disturbed in a visceral way".
** "[[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2007-11-21 Objection, Your Honor. Too much information.]]"
* In [[http://www.gpf-comics.com/d/20010905.html this strip]] from ''Webcomic/GeneralProtectionFault'', Uncle Wisebottom is telling Nick about the physical side-effects of the Inventor's Gene (Read: ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder), and mentions the effect it may have on the sex life. Noticing Nick and Ki's facial expressions, he archly comments "So… which is more embarrassing: Me talking about YOUR future sex-life, or the thought of ME having sex?"

* On [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=322 this page]] of ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'', Antimony would rather not hear the details of how Ysengrin helped Red "[[ICannotSelfTerminate pass her test]]".
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0188.html as seen in the page quote]].
** Likewise, the prequel book ''Start of Darkness'' includes a scene where the still-human [[BigBad Xykon]] is telling [[TheDragon Redcloak]] and his brother Right-Eye that he needs to "drain some charges from the wand" because these days his prostate is "the size of a baby's head". Redcloak (and the reader) really, really didn't need that mental picture.
* ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' breathes this trope. Nothing is spared the characters, not even their parents' sex life.

* In [[http://wapsisquare.com/comic/fringe-paranormals/ this]] (warning! spoilers) strip of ''Webcomic/WapsiSquare'', Justin goes into a little too much detail about something that a previous girlfriend had him do.
** Slightly lighter note: Monica's catching up with an old friend and makes the mistake of asking him about [[http://wapsisquare.com/comic/12152003/ a nickname he's acquired]].
* ''Webcomic/EerieCuties'' occasionally have things like this. When Mrs. Delacroix, with a nostalgic [[LuminescentBlush blush]], [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/d/20110126.html mentions]] her... fond memories of Chloe's mother, following by a mass JawDrop and Brooke covering Nina's ears.

* ''Webcomic/AkiChansLife'', when Ritsuko points that Asuka may be a virgin mother… [[http://jimmywolk.studenten-froendenberg.de/eng/aki.php?browse.2.30]]
* ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'': Pretty much any scene involving Ruby (who is basically something between a deconstructed {{Ingenue}}, a SourPrude, and a ButtMonkey) can end with her learning more than she wanted to know -- especially if her sister Amber's private life is involved, though anything involving gay sex is also well out of her comfort zone, and CampGay Dillon doesn't always know when to shut up. As she puts it, hanging around with Dillon and Amber [[http://www.stickydillybuns.com/strips-sdb/you_will_always_be_my_favorite_girl "is like tuning my TV to the 'Uncomfortable Realizations Channel,' 24-7".]] The next problem for her is that she becomes increasingly fascinated by sex, specifically [[YaoiFangirl gay male sex]], without quite losing this reaction. Hence she ends up [[http://www.stickydillybuns.com/strips-sdb/between_two_men asking Angel about Angel's rather complex sexuality]] -- but [[http://www.stickydillybuns.com/strips-sdb/now_is_good her brain melts when Angel answers.]]
* As Sandra says in this ''Webcomic/SandraAndWoo'' strip, "[[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/09/08/0306-too-much-information/ Tell me less]]".
* ''WebComic/HeroOhHero''[='s=] [[http://www.neorice.com/hoh_248 Noah]] isn't impressed when one of his classmates starts describing his dreams.
--> "STOP! And never speak of this again."
* The trope is narrowly averted in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1131 Elliot stops Ellen]] just before she gives him the details on what [[SchoolgirlLesbians she and Nanase]] have planned involving superhero tights.
** [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2449 Later on,]] Susan has just been informed that [[spoiler:Adrian Raven is her distant ancestor, and that Diane is his daughter (and by extension, Susan's some-number-of-greats-aunt)]].
--->'''[[spoiler:Raven]]:''' I... I'm pretty sure I know how ''we'' must be related, too... there's not a lot of moments it ''could'' have happened without me ''knowing,'' and... my goodness. I was in my ''[[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld actual twenties]]''...\\
'''Susan:''' We can sort out how many details I should hear about this later.
* To judge by Sonya's expression in [[http://www.ma3comic.com/strips-ma3/goodie-goodie_facade the last panel of this]] ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' strip, Yuki is telling her [[InterplayOfSexAndViolence more]] about their recent SlapSlapKiss interlude than Sonya is happy knowing...
-->'''Sonya:''' Oh you're into kinkier stuff than your goodie-goodie facade lets on. ''I'' had never been "fisted" before.\\
'''Yuki:''' Oh, ''that!'' Actually, [[GroinAttack I punched you in the vagina]] and my hand got caught. Sorry 'bout that, I guess.
* ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'': Yeon and Ja get into a heated argument about who would be a better supporter of Viole, and it quickly devolves into this:
({{Beat}}, everybody has white eyes of shock and Prince is laughing his ass off in the background)\\
'''Ja:''' Chest...? Don-- Don't joke with me! You think a woman's chest is some sort of blessing? Then I, too, will... ''(fiddles at his fly)''\\
'''Everybody:''' ''(with readied weapons)'' DON'T!
* [[https://derpibooru.org/836141 This]] ''Celestia's Servant Interview'' comic ends with an anonymous questioner asking what Trixie thinks of the fact that she's been drawn as an anthro with the MostCommonSuperpower. Trixie is... stunned.
* In ''Webcomic/LeftoverSoup'' Jaimie [[http://leftoversoup.com/archive.php?num=482 tells a little too much]] to Gina.
* Way too many instances to count happen in the roleplays of ''WebComic/WhiteDarkLife''.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''Literature/NewYorkMagician'': When Michel asks Kevin how the latter knew his Nana.
-->"Ahh." He smiled, creasing into a grin. "What a woman yer nan was, boy."\\
"Okay, that's already told me way more than I wanted to know about that part."
* A regular problem with Team Kimba in the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'', usually due to Generator wanting to talk about her relationship with Thuban. Who's mutating into a dragon.
** Oddly enough, it's the least sexual romantic relationship compared to the other 5 original characters and their characters....
*** The fact that her mutation has stunted her growth and left her with the physique of a ten year-old boy, probably has something to do with it.
* ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony,'' multiple times. In two separate episodes, Rarity creeps out Twilight or her own backing choir by describing her fantasies about Prince Blueblood (leather outfits, torture chambers, and branding irons are involved). In "Random Eye Magic", Twilight's activities during Winter Wrap Up are completely innocuous, but she [[InnocentInnuendo accidentally describes them in the worst possible way]], so Applejack announces she'd rather not know. In "Shameless Self Reference", Twilight starts to ask Rainbow Dash about her sonic rainboom, but she gets GenreSavvy and immediately rescinds her question. Dash tells anyway, and Twilight wishes she hadn't.
* In the ''WebAnimation/WeeblAndBob'' episode "Paper", Bob is disgusted by Weebl freely admitting that he's aroused by the lead singer for [[Music/{{aha}} a-ha]].
-->'''Bob:''' Stop, stop! That is far too much informations!\\
'''Weebl:''' Too much, or too sexy?\\
'''Bob:''' Too much.
* ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'':
** Episode 12.5: The meaning of dakka.
--->'''Emperor:''' [[AC:It is the common Ork word for rapid firepower and multilaser masturbation.]]\\
'''Kitten:''' Right... I didn't need to know that...
** Episode 17: The Emperor's sex life before the Age of Strife causes [[spoiler:Magnus]] to go ''La, la, la, I can't hear you'' and Custodian to put a bucket over his helmet so that he wouldn't hear it. For a good reason.
--->'''Emperor''': [[AC:As far as I knew, none of the people I'd introduced to the "Big E" had been able to handle it, and most of them had pretty... explosive climaxes. Again, literally.]]\\
'''Kitten''': I-iiii... didn't need to know any of that.\\
'''[[spoiler:Magnus]]''': This is the kind of knowledge that should remain a mystery.\\
''(the Emperor continues talking about this anyway)''
* ''Podcast/RandomAssault'': A lot of the things Matt or Kate say.
** Kate's infamous "lemon" story.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Ed on ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' does this from time to time (like randomly announcing "I forgot to wear underwear, guys" in "Shoo Ed").
** "I found my sensitive side cause it has a rash!"
* The Mayor in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'':
-->'''Mayor:''' A "Beefy Betty" doll! I've always wanted one of these.\\
'''Narrator:''' TMI, Mayor... Too much information!
* Lois in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''
-->'''Lois:''' Yes, women are such teases, that's why I went back to men.\\
'''Meg:''' Yeah, uh, well, thanks for sharing that... ''(leaves room)''\\
'''Chris:''' ''(scoots closer to Lois)'' [[GirlOnGirlIsHot Go on]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks''
-->'''Grandpa:''' And for your information, children, I had relations with Kristal last night.\\
'''Huey & Riley:''' Aw man, why would you share that? How am I supposed to have nice dreams tonight, man?!
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Eight Misbehavin'", Homer enters the Kwik-E-Mart to find Apu sitting in the ice cream freezer:
-->'''Apu:''' By chilling my loins, I will increase the chances of impregnating my wife.\\
'''Homer''' Whoa! To much in-for-mation! Thanks for the mental picture! Why don't you tell us what you REALLY think?\\
'''Apu:''' ''(annoyed)'' Will you stop spouting those hackneyed quips!
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'':
-->'''Lana:''' I mean, what do we really know about Conway?\\
'''Archer:''' Only that he's not circumcised.\\
'''Lana:''' ... okay, glossing over how you came across that piece of information--\\
'''Archer:''' [[ItMakesSenseInContext We touched penises]].\\
'''Lana:''' No. ''Glossing''!
** Similarly, in "Movie Star:"
-->'''Pam:''' So now we start Operation...um...\\
'''Cheryl:''' Dick Sledge.\\
'''Gilette:''' Do you wanna...\\
'''Pam:''' Not really, but it's like sour milk; you just gotta take a whiff. What's the story, neckbones?\\
'''Cheryl:''' Freshman year in my stupid college, I had a huge crush on this guy named Dick Sledge. But he never even noticed me; he wouldn't even sign my cast when I broke my own arm. So one day I decided to sneak into his apartment and see what kind of music he liked, or turtles, or roll around in his clothes or whatever...\\
'''Pam:''' But you were so busy sniffing his jock you didn't notice him come in.\\
'''Cheryl:''' Yeah, and I must have blacked out because I don't remember stabbing him at all.\\
'''Gilette:''' Why did you have a knife?\\
'''Cheryl:''' It wasn't a knife; it was a stupid pair of scissors! ''(picks up a pair of scissors)'' And it was his fault for grabbing me with his throwing hand! ...they said he could have gone pro.\\
'''Gilette:''' OK, glossing over why you broke your own arm...\\
'''Cheryl:''' So he'd sign my cast...
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible: So The Drama'':
-->'''Ron:''' Augh! You kissed a synthodrone!\\
'''Kim:''' I never kissed him. But I wanted to.\\
'''Ron:''' Okay, too much information.
* In ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', the official measure of penis size is called "TMI." (This is likely a play on "BMI," an actual measure of weight).
** In "Imaginationland" Steven Stotch gives a little ''too'' much information on what he thinks has happened to Butters.
--> '''Steven Stotch:''' "We don't want to jump to conclusions but... we're worried that somebody kidnapped Butters, sodomised him over and over an-d then fed his genitals to wild animals."
** "Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery" has a running gag where two graveyard employees just assume whoever stole Kyle's grandmother's corpse is a necrophiliac and go into way too much detail about what they think he might be doing with the body. Including one demonstration of what they think it might sound like using their fists and a jar of mayonnaise.
** In "Le Petit Tourette" Cartman fakes having Tourette's Syndrome as an excuse to swear as much as he likes. However, as time goes on, him saying whatever he likes at any time causes him to lose his ability to filter what comes so out of his mouth, so he starts to involuntarily blurt out embarrassing things about himself, like how he wets the bed, how he and his cousin once touched wieners, and that he was lying about having Tourette's Syndrome.
* [[WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong Fu Dog]] names this trope to keep Lao Shi from talking about an... interesting... experience from his youth; "TMI! Know what that stands for? Too Much Information!"
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' has this gem.
--> '''Reporter:''' We now go live with breaking news from helicopter 2 flying above the hotel!\\
''(Vlad's clothes fly away and the walls disappear into invisibility; Vlad's towel then flies away)''\\
'''Vlad:''' Oh, butter brittle!\\
''(Sam and Tucker laughing loudly as they watch an embarrassed, naked Vlad through an incorporated TV-screen in the control panel)''\\
'''Tucker:''' Can you say "too much information"? ''(laughs)''\\
'''Sam:''' Maybe when I'm done suppressing my gag reflex. ''(snickers)''
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Fillmore}}'': in the first episode, they encounter a GranolaGirl potter who proclaims that she couldn't have graffiti'd the school bathrooms:
-->'''Jean Grace''': I can't help you there. I don't believe in ''indoor plumbing'', and I have ''never'' set foot in a school bathroom. I always go out-\\
'''Ingrid''': Uh. Don't even wanna know.
* In ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', one incident involves Mabel afflicting Grunkle Stan with magical honesty teeth. It turns out that his discretion was also lost in the process, and between his earnest attempts to confess all of his many crimes to the authorities and bellowing every minor health issue his ageing body encounters at the top of his lungs, the twins rapidly reach the end of their collective tether.
* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'': In "A Haunting in Crystal Cove", as Fred tells the gang about his dad's recent strange behavior, which included running screaming through the house and sleeping in the yard.
-->'''Daphne:''' My mom was doing that for a while, but it just turned out to be really bad gas, according to the men who took her away.\\
'''Shaggy:''' I hear that. Like, a couple of late-night jalapeño-stuffed clam poppers and it's another all-nighter on the porcelain.\\
'''Scooby:''' Raggy, ''please!''
* This from ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'' episode "Carl Wheezer Boy Genius":
--> '''Carl:''' I didn't think Elkie would like a hefty nerd with glasses who plays with llamas and sleeps with a blanky and has unsightly spots all over his—
--> '''Sheen:''' (covering Carl's mouth) TOO MUCH INFORMATION!

[[folder:Real Life]]
* Never sit behind old women on a bus. Really.
** Similarly, never use the word "prostate" around men over 50.
* It's found on many Medical-related humor lists that a sign that you're in the Medical Profession is that ''You see no problems in discussing graphic medical problems over food, especially if it's something like meaty dishes or Spaghetti and meatballs''.
** Pathologists seem to have a particular knack for this, as well as, say, demonstrating the flexibility of a trachea. Apparently, some professionals of the ''postmortem'' medicine have a running competition regarding who can get the most hapless interns to faint.
* [[AllNaturalSnakeOil The Cure-Zone forums/discussion area]] is notorious for this. A very common quack cure discussed there is various types of "colon cleansing." You will learn ''far'' more about other people's bowel habits and bowel movements than you EVER want to know.
* People who have autistic spectrum disorders may not always know when something is inappropriate (due to their blindness to social cues) and can invoke this trope.
* Often occurs between friends of any combination of gender and/or sexuality when the details of sexual encounters are brought up in conversation.
** Which leads to a long-standing joke that, if a woman wants to get out of work (and has a male boss), all she needs to cite are "lady problems", and he'll quickly give her the day off to avoid hearing the {{Squick}}y details.
* Don't ask [[Music/HidetoMatsumoto hide]] fans how he died. If they say "it was an accident" rather than "it was suicide," TAKE THAT AT FACE VALUE. If you ask "what kind of accident," you ''will'' likely learn [[EroticAsphyxiation what kind]] of accident those fans think it was.
* Music/MinoruNiihara from the band Music/{{Loudness}}. Do NOT read his personal blog unless you want to become very intimately acquainted with the problems of his anus.
* In her last Oscars special, Barbara Walters got ''{{Film/Precious}}'' actress Mo'Nique to reveal that A) she hasn't shaved her legs since the first time she tried it (the actual shaving bit wasn't bad, it was the hairs ''growing back'' that hurt), B) she's in an open relationship with her husband, and C) [[BreadEggsMilkSquick she got "inspiration" for Mary Jones]] from [[BrotherSisterIncest a brother]] who she hasn't talked to since he apparently squicked her out while holding one of her newborn twins.
* There are people who give too much information in their tweets. Made fun of in [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2008/04/23/le-twittre Penny Arcade]].
** Similarly, Facebook or Foursquare.
*** Or any social networking site, for that matter.
* For good or ill, after children grow up to become adults there is often a sudden revelation of things that have been going on around the family that they wish they had never found out about. Examples include finding out about the sex lives of the new adult's parents or that a family member that they liked is really a sex offender.
** But these are nothing compared to figuring out that you're inheriting a ''negative'' amount of money-- a mountain of debt. On the other hand, you ''must'' know that.
* In June 2010, UsefulNotes/{{New Zealand}} Prime Minister John Key was interrogated by media over his cuts to early childhood teacher numbers. When asked if he was happy to send his own children to a centre with fewer qualified teachers, he reminded media that his children were teenagers, and when asked what if he and his wife had another child, he replied "I would be extremely worried because I've had a vasectomy". In a later interview, Key also remarked that he had a [[http://www.nzherald.co.nz/entertainment/news/article.cfm?c_id=1501119&objectid=11531913 tendency to urinate in the shower]].
* Be very careful what you ask a pregnant woman or new mother about the health of her or her child. The number of embarrassing questions they have to answer, combined with more medical appointments than she has likely had in her whole adult life, means that pregnant women often forget that people generally don't want to hear about, for example, blood and discharge, stitches or anyone's bowel movements.
