* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'': Princess Bubblegum [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mbjc26jQfN1rvw0eoo1_500.png plays this trope straight most of the time]], with a seemingly limitless wardrobe of gowns and pouffy dresses, but also subverts it frequently, as she seems just as comfortable wearing a hoodie and leggings, with her hair pulled back in a ponytail. She's probably also the only princess on this list that you'll see wearing a [[MadScientist labcoat]] over her gown.
* A number of dresses show up in ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', for various reasons, whether a costume party, or magical holiday fairies. One former tooth fairy, not a ghost of Christmas Past, wears a blue HappyHolidaysDress that has snowflake decorations and gauze layering.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' episode, "King Yakko", Hello Nurse is the kingdom's prime minister, and wears a magenta dress with ermine trim on the skirt, and a blue cloak.
* These show up in the WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts.
** The DamselInDistress in "The China Shop" wears [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/deathbeforedisco/4000628412/in/photostream/ a blue 18th century dress]] with purple bows and ribbons, and a pink petticoat.
** The girl in "The Moth and the Flame" wears [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/deathbeforedisco/3999863307/in/photostream/ a red dress]] with a short pink skirt, and a collar and hem trimmed with white fur.
** The Cookie Queen in "The Cookie Carnival" is given a [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext dress made out of food]]. It has a cupcake paper as a skirt frame, blue and white eclair creme to make the frilly overdress, heart candies decorating the middle of the skirt, and the only non-food related item is a blue GiantWaistRibbon. [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/deathbeforedisco/4000540664/sizes/o/in/photostream/ The concept art]] showed the dress being red and white. And she's not the only one, as "[[http://www.flickr.com/photos/deathbeforedisco/3999775417/ Miss Strawberry Blonde]]" wears a skirt that is a strawberry shortcake where the layers get wider from the top down.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'' has a few, some in the show, but most in the credits pictures.
** Quinn's [[PinkMeansFeminine pink]] middle ages dress, with [[PrettyInMink white fur trimming]] in "Fair Enough".
** Erin's wedding dress in "I Don't", with the massive bell skirt, lace, and loads of floral trimmings.
* Some show up in ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers''. An odd case is a blue one in worn an opera with an ermine cape and little ermine overskirt. The odd part was the Chip later found and put on a small one [[WeNeedADistraction to distract the episode's villain]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' had a ShoutOut to ''Beauty and the Beast'', where Elisa Maza once wore Belle's golden ballgown on Halloween while Goliath wore Beast's dress suit.
* In ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible: So the Drama'', Kim is seen wearing a mildly pimped-out prom dress, which gets charred by a [[HumongousMecha Diablo's]] laser beams, prompting her to shout, "Do you know how much babysitting I had to do to buy this dress?"
* WesternAnimation/LadyLovelyLocks and her friends [[http://listenup.rubberslug.com/gallery/inv_info.asp?ItemID=332456 wore similar dresses]] that each had medium poofy sleeves, and three rings of frills on their skirts. Otherwise the dresses varied in with the ruffles, ribbons, and other details. Duchess Ravenwaves wore a dark purple dress with puffed sleeves and leaf-like layers of different colored fabric on the sleeves and skirt.
* Despite being equines, the ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' series and toy line finds ways to dress them up. We saw this from a FashionShow in [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTVSpecials the second TV special]], to Rarity from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' being [[TheFashionista a fashion designer]] with a penchant for creating these.
** "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E14SuitedForSuccess Suited for Success]]" is about making dresses for her friends, but their TakingAdvantageOfGenerosity turned the dresses into ImpossiblyTackyClothes. They made it up to her by completing the dress she designed for herself. In the meantime, Rarity sang a song about making fancy dresses, "Art of the Dress".
** The practicalities of Pimped-Out Dresses are lampshaded, Rarity spends one party standing in a corner ordering everyone to keep well away from her for fear of damaging it, any amount of strenuous effort tends to leave them disheveled, and they make sure to take them off before actually getting into a fight (with Rarity seen carefully smoothing them out and folding them up despite an 'in progress' invasion occuring).
* When the girls in ''WesternAnimation/PrincessGwenevereAndTheJewelRiders'' are in regular clothes, they can be pimped out. Gwenevere has worn a pink mini dress with gold stars decorating it, and a pink dress with puff sleeves and a three-tiered skirt.
* The eponymous ''WesternAnimation/PrincessSissi'' wears many in the show.
** There is [[http://www.cinemarx.ro/filme/poze/Princess-Sissi-Princess-Sissi-408648,253550.html#photo a yellow dress]] with a blue petticoat, blue ribbons and pink bows on the skirt, and gold decorations on the bodice.
** [[http://www.cinemarx.ro/filme/poze/Princess-Sissi-Princess-Sissi-408648,122596.html#photo A green dress]] with puff sleeves, white ruffles on the hem and neckline, and several strips of yellow frills on the front of the bodice and skirt.
** [[http://www.fanpop.com/spots/princess-sissi/images/26911877/title/screens-screencap A blue dress]] with white trimming and pink bows on the skirt and neckline.
** [[http://www.fanpop.com/spots/princess-sissi/images/26911867/title/screens-screencap A white dress]] with a pink petticoat and neckline, puff sleeves, and a string of pearls worn around the waist.
** Finally, there is [[http://www.cinemarx.ro/filme/poze/Princess-Sissi-Princess-Sissi-408648,253549.html#photo her wedding dress]], with OperaGloves, flowers, frills, and puff sleeves.
* In the video ''WesternAnimation/PrincessSydney Christmas: Three Gold Coins'', Sydney wears a few dresses, such a a red HappyHolidaysDress with a thick, white fur hem and neckline, and a coronation dress with an ermine cape and ermine-trimmed skirt.
* The eponymous ''WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower'' wears a white MiniDressOfPower that has loads of [[GoldMakesEverythingShiny gold decorations]], a gold CoolCrown shaped like wings, and a short red cape.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'', Courtney wears a [[GracefulLadiesLikePurple purple dress]] in the episode "The Princess Pride", that is basically a PaletteSwap of {{Disney/Cinderella}}'s dress, save for the fancy [[EverythingsSparklyWithJewelry diamond]] [[CoolCrown tiara]]. In the episode "Niagra Brawls", she wears a white version of that dress as a FairytaleWeddingDress.
* The ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' have fancy dresses and gowns on certain occasions, they have plenty of them to give the Barbie a run for her money.
%%* Of ''course'' ''Franchise/EverAfterHigh'' would have this.
