These are some very happy lizards.

Chuck: I have so many questions. My mind wanders.
Ned: You need to feed it warm milk and a turkey sandwich, let it curl up in a sunny spot and take a nap.

This page is for entire works that manage to be Heartwarming Moment. When you post a work, just remember to explain what in it is heartwarming.

If a work has one Heartwarming Moment but is otherwise not particularly heartwarming, post it to that page. Sometimes related to the other kind of sweet dreams.

Highly recommended to drop by this page if you've been over at Nightmare Fuel and plan on sleeping, or at Tear Jerker and need to invite some positivity back into your brain.


Examples

    Advertising 
  • The World Is Just Awesome. An ad... for the world, adventure, innovation, science, happiness, and life. (And the Discovery Channel.)
  • This ad for Schweppes.
  • This commercial for a Dutch coffee brand. "It's not what you say, it's what you do."
  • The Oreo Bedtime and Wonderfilled (the latter being sung by Owl City!) commercials.
  • This ad for Best Western hotels from 2002, with an extra helping of the Eiffel Tower Effect.
  • This advert for Animax Singapore. Awesome music and awesome imagery, you're bound to have some epic dreams.
  • The UK's "Hedgehog" campaign, a lovely series of PIFs featuring animated hedgehogs singing about road safety. They're widely regarded as some of the best road safety adverts ever made. They are:
  • This adorable commercial for Snuggles Fabric Softner where Snuggle is tucking in a sleeping baby named Cindy complete with a lullaby playing throughout this commercial.
  • Travel Nevada ads. Beautiful footage plus a great song will never fail to make you smile. Even as a YouTube ad you won't mind it. An example can be found here.
  • Most road safety PSAs take the Scare 'em Straight approach and show you the gory consequences if you don't buckle your seat belt, speed, drink-drive, etc. Embrace Life takes a very different tack and simply wants to remind you that you should look after yourself because there are people who love you and who need you to come home safe. It's simple, powerful, heartwarming and a tearjerker all in one and no one will not want to wear a seat belt the next time they get into a car after seeing it.
  • The "I'm a Pepper" Dr.Pepper commercial from the 70's, which feels like it could of come from some kind of musical. It's so happy and up-beat that it's hard not to crack a smile watching it.
  • This Japanese PSA from Greenpeace. It has an old man talking about how Whaling affected the seas. Then he makes up for the Whaling by saving a whale.
  • Mentos: The Freshmaker is a classic series of ads that function as this. People face simple, personal problems, such as Clothing Damage, or losing a belonging. Upon this happening, they pull out a packet of Mentos, and eat one. The fresh flavour clears their mind, allowing them to come up with a silly, yet fun solution, leading into the slogan. If that wasn't enough, all of this is set to one of the most uplifting jingles ever composed.

    Comic Books 
  • The Toon Treasury of Classic Children's Comics is pure, unleaded Sweet Dreams Fuel from start to finish. Loaded with over 60 classic comics from a large variety of artists (some of whom were even Golden Age animators!) bound in a pseudo-classic book-like fashion. The stories feature lovely artwork and stories handpicked by industry veterans like Art Spielgelmen (who you might know as the creator of the not-so-sweet dreams fuel-ridden comic Maus)—stories that they feel are worthy enough to be read by the children of today.
  • There is also the Craig Yoe book The Golden Collection of Krazy Kool Klassic Kids' Komics, which also has a large variety of comics from many classic artists. The story selection isn't quite as impressive as the Toon Treasury book, but it's still a worthy addition to any classic comic enthusiasts collection, a fun read for any age, and just as loaded with sweet dreams fuel.
  • Nine Lives to Live: Felix the Cat note  is a wonderful compilation of Sunday Felix the Cat comic strips penned by his creator Otto Messmer. Rich in imagination and fantasy, Felix embarks on many escapades, loaded with fun sight gags, good characterization, all told with Otto's imaginative rubberhose art style—even his props are fun to look at! If you're a fan of Felix, this book is a must have!
  • Another excellent Felix collection is the Craig Yoe book Felix The Cat's Greatest Comic Book Tales, offering a selection of stories that are truly ideal for children—loaded with lovely illustrations, cute fantasy stories, funny gags, and great artwork from Otto Messmer, Joe Oriolo and even Jim Tyer. It's also much easier to get hold of than the Nine Lives to Live book.
  • The Complete Milt Gross is yet another excellent collection from Craig Yoe, featuring a plethora of hilarious stories from one of the best comic artists of the 30's and 40's! The artwork is hilarious bizarre and full of energy, and Milt's slang and witty dialogue, as well as his funny cast of characters made this ideal for someone who wants a little more spice in their sweet dreams fuel.
  • Mickey and the Gang: Classic Stories in Verse is a truly excellent, LARGE book loaded with classic Disney comics, Good Housekeeping magazine poems represented with beautiful hand-painted illustrations, and is crammed to the bursting point with trivia and information on Classic Disney. Great to read to your kids before bed, and a true treat for any fan of Classic Disney.
  • E.C. Segar's Popeye anthologies are all excellent comics that have stood the passage of time. While his artwork is fairly crude, Segar created some of the most memorable characters in comic history, and his wit is as sharp as a razor. Even if you're already a fan of the Popeye cartoons, the original comics will only enhance your appreciation for the series even more.
  • Krazy Kat is a truly surreal, but sweet dreams fuel inducing series. Not much more to be said.
  • Pretty much any comic made by Winsor McCay will fall into this, but his legendary Little Nemo comics take the cake.
  • Calvin and Hobbes is pure sweet dreams fuel from start to finish, loaded with great artwork, truly imaginative stories, and some of the richest, funniest characters to ever grace the comics page.
  • Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane: This is the tonic to One More Day. Adorable, well-written, enjoyably fluffy, and barely wangsty at all despite being about a teenage girl in high school... a nice change from the ordinary comics fare.
  • Tiny Titans: Aw yeah, Tiny Titans! If you're depressed by the team's sky-high body count and the book's downward spiral, please check out this book. Whoever thought Trigon could be even remotely adorable?
  • Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade: Supergirl, her sort-of-evil clone and Lex Luthor's kid sister get into wacky hijinks. Just the thing if you're feeling stressed.
  • Scott Pilgrim: Once you get past everyone fighting and all the video game and music references the series is essentially a funny and sweet story about two people changing their shallow relationship habits so that they can work out together.
  • Enfants, c'est l'Hydragon qui passe. A tenderhearted story about a boy, his father, and a cool boat.
  • Every scene in The Sandman where Death shows up is this. Yes, even though she's Death.
  • Owly: An adorable comic involving a friendly owl and the animal friends he makes, relying on only visuals and word balloons with pictures in them to get its messages of friendship across.
  • Superman. Has there been a hero who's brought this much hope to people? He's a Messianic Archetype, The Paragon, The Cape, basically the ideal hero. He has the powers of a God but never once uses them to hurt or control people. Despite the fact he get's overshadowed by Batman lately. Superman has always been synonymous with Hope.
  • The Amazing Spider-Man vol. 3 Number 1 is the happiest comic ever written, just the image of the nicest person in the marvel universe alive and smiling is so universally radiant. The comic itself is about Peter Parker finding a new lease on life, fixing any damages that happened, and just being happy he's alive. If Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane is the tonic for One More Day, this issue is the tonic for Superior Spider-Man.
  • Just about anything written and drawn by Darwyn Cooke, whose known for works like DC: The New Frontier and his 2006 run on The Spirit. His stories and his retro art style perfectly encapsulate everything wonderful about comic books.
  • In a universe known for it's angst and Dysfunction Junction, Squirrel Girl is a breath of fresh air. She's an eternally happy, perky superheroine with the ability to talk to squirrels, is powerful enough to defeat titans like Doctor Doom and Thanos without breaking a sweat, and unlike the majority of heroes in her universe and others, she chose to be a hero not because of some great personal tragedy, but simply because she wanted to do good (and because she's a big fan of superheroes). The comics she's featured in tend to be hilarious (especially Ryan North's The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl) and a great example of Lighter and Softer not necessarily being a bad thing.

    Fan Works 
  • The Light in the Darkness is considered one of the most heartwarming tells in the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fandom. Its pretty much distilled escence of the bonds of friendship between the Mane Cast from the series. It's gained the reputation for being Sweet Dreams Fuel enough to counteract the Nightmare Fuel present in Cupcakes.
  • Kalash93 gives us Songs Uncle Sings, a lighthearted, sweet short oneshot fic about how an uncle and a nephew bond and get to know each other through the power of music. It's all the more surprising that this little gem of feel-good innocence comes from a man whose works are not known for being the kind of thing you'd read to your children as bedtime stories.
    • While we're on the topic of pony fanfics, give How to Preen Your Chicken a shot. It brings the relationship between Rainbow Dash and Scootaloo to its peak in the sweetest way possible.
  • Also this, though it may actually creep/gross out some.
  • Wait wait wait, what?! No Blue Sky?! This thing is just brimming with Dream Fuel! Compare it to the ending of the game, and see just how sweet it is. It will fill your heart with feels, seriously. It even has its own page.
  • The Little Cherub series by Beautifulpurpleflame. The difficult parenthood of the Teen Titans.
  • Did I Ever Tell You is a short oneshot that perfectly encompasses the warmth of One Piece in general and the Straw Hats in particular.
  • Neon Metathesis Evangelion manages to be incredibly warm despite the source material, with the pilots growing ever closer. Notably, when Rei comes home to the apartment she shares with Asuka looking exhausted and ready to collapse, Asuka hurries to get Shinji who quite literally comes running and the two spend the rest of the night caring for Rei and even fall asleep embracing her.
  • Finding Dad is a romance story where the inherent cuteness works it's way into a three-act structure.
  • In contrast to some of the darker stuff in The Loud House fandom, "Mall Rats" is nothing but pure sweetness, having as its premise Lincoln grudgingly agreeing to spend a day at the mall with Leni but discovering her Hidden Depths and realizing that she's a lot cooler than he normally gives her credit for.

    Films — Animated 
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas: All the characters are absolutely adorable and a lot of the songs are dangerously catchy. The finale where Jack and Sally have their ending duet is a Heartwarming Moment and if that's not a high note for a movie to end on, then what is? It's one of the very best films for Halloween, and with good reason.
  • The Land Before Time, typical of a Don Bluth film, has its tragic moments, but it balances it with some of the most beautiful portrayals of maternal and filial love ever shown on film. The soundtrack only makes it all the more heartwarming...
  • How to Train Your Dragon. Basically any scene with Toothless is this but especially the scene where he and Hiccup bond for the first time and definitely the ending.
  • Every. Pixar. Film. Ever. Even if you can survive the heart wrenches, the heartwarming moments and lovable characters surely makeup for it. Stand outs being the Toy Story franchise, Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, WALL•E, Up, and Inside Out.
  • The Disney Animated Canon features beautifully animated movies with sweeping soundtracks, lovable and relatable characters, and an idealistic, romantic viewpoint of the world, so it naturally has a lot of this. Examples include:
    • Tangled. Of note are the scenes where Rapunzel gets out of the tower for the first time, running about singing about how wonderful it is, and the festival where she drags in a bunch of complete strangers to dance with her.
      • Flynn/Eugene and Rapunzel's relationship is W.A.F.F. incarnate, especially with their duet "I See The Light", which is probably one of the most spectacularly beautiful sequences Disney has ever made.
      • The whole movie is a sweet dream, even with the appearances of Mother Gothel. It's a great, fun, heartwarming and cute little movie.
    • Frozen in spite of its title, will warm your heart. It will also make you cry. If Young-Anna and Young-Elsa playing doesn't give you the warm fuzzies, or you don't feel good about the sisters reconciling at the end, you probably have no soul.
    • Meet the Robinsons is the inspiration for many an idealistic, if not realistic dream of the future. Blue skies and Ghibli Hills are awesome. Don't forget the house of the future.
    • Lilo & Stitch is about a little girl befriending an adorable yet mischievous alien and teaching it the meaning of family. In addition to the film's optimistic tone, nearly all the main characters are fun and quirky. Two of the minor villains are even redeemed.
    • The Emperor's New Groove. Cute, funny, and so uplifting you won't care if it doesn't make sense. It has a great feel to it and it's near-impossible to watch it and not like it.
    • Bambi brings in the concept of heartwarming birth, and The Lion King, which also uses such a concept, has the song "The Circle of Life", which can be very heartwarming.
    • The scene from Oliver & Company where Fagan reads to the dogs and they fall asleep. Plus the song "Good Company" will give you the fuzzies.
    • Lady and the Tramp had the tagline "...and now his HAPPIEST motion picture!" and it lives up to this so, so much. The dogs are cute (and rendered in the typically beautiful hand-drawn animation of old-school Disney). They face some peril and adversity, but the only antagonists are of the One-Scene Wonder variety and not the kind seen in other Disney movies. They eat spaghetti while the chef serenades them. And eventually they give birth to adorable puppies.
    • Wreck-It Ralph, even with the appearances of Turbo and the King Candy Cy-Bug is still a heartwarming, funny, awesome, and wonderful animated movie with a massive emotional punch to it. It also has one of the most beautiful and memorable Like Brother and Sister relationships of all time, and the ending may probably cause tears of joy.
    • If you really want an example of this, please watch the (incredibly underrated) Disney film Bolt. In short, we get a beginning consisting of the main character as a puppy being adopted by Penny as an adorable little girl and Bolt going across the entire country with two other incredibly adorable animals in tow just because he loves his person so much, in the middle a montage of him doing adorable dog stuff as he gains his identity (all while they're bonding and a happy country/pop song is playing in the background), and at the end we get to see all the main characters happily living together in a Tastes Like Diabetes animation style and an incredibly sweet pop song. It is a testament to both Crowning Momentof Awesome and Crowning Momentof Heartwarming.
    • The Disney Fairies films themselves, Because Tinker Bell is cute and has Character Development unlike her Peter Pan counterpart and she also has five friends and a sister she didn't know she had, which also doubles as Major Sweet Dream Fuel.
    • If you get past the death scene and the whole "Baymax destroy" bit, Big Hero 6 is so sweet and cute. Bonus points goes to Honey Lemon, a girl who's so peppy and uplifting that she might possibility make all the Disney Princesses look so average and bland, and Baymax, the adorably chubby Gentle Giant robot you just want to hug. Balalala!
    • Zootopia, with its beautiful if complex message of diversity and acceptance, its beautiful scenery, and the friendship between Nick and Judy.
    • The "Pastoral Symphony" segment of the original Fantasia. Values Dissonance aside, it feels almost like an Ancient Grome version of Equestria set to Ludwig van Beethoven's sweeping Sixth Symphony.
  • Ice Age, especially the first and the third.
  • The LEGO Movie:
    • It makes tropers in their college age feel like a ten year old again, and it's probably one of the funniest and best animated movies ever made.
    • Uni-Kitty. She's a pink fluffy unicorn princess kitty filled with such sugary sweetness to make anyone smile.
  • Rise of the Guardians. Pitch Black aside, this movie really brings back the magic that was felt all around you as a kid, back when you believed in things like Santa Claus. Brilliant characters, music, a touching plot and FANTASTIC special effects, it has brought about a ton of fans/"believers" of all ages.
  • The Peanuts Movie is another one of those films that makes college-age tropers feel like little kids again, thanks in no small part to the lush visuals, faithfulness to the source material, and reusing of the old Snoopy soundbites. There's also the "Better When I'm Dancin" music video that has the Peanuts characters dancing to the song alongside its performer, Meghan Trainor, via Roger Rabbit Effect.

    Films — Live-Action 
  • It's a little weird to put this here, considering the rest of the movie, but the ending of Raising Arizona is this.
  • Vanilla Sky is one long pop culture love letter, all about the sweet and sour of life. Without the sour, the sweet wouldn't be as sweet. If you've seen the movie, you get it.
  • The Back to the Future trilogy. Even though time travel can be pretty terrifying and tearjerking from time to time, it still proves that you can shape your own destiny. Plus it is filled to the brim with multiple levels of nostalgia-fueled goodness. It is the Trope Namer for The Power of Love.
  • Terry Pratchett's Hogfather. Even if you think all Christmas movies ever are sugar-iced, honey-coated, syrupy pieces of cheap tacky feelgood, this one will still manage to make you cry four to five times every time you watch it.
    • For example: Death himself, in the role of the Hogfather (Discworld's version of Santa), saving The Little Matchgirl.
  • Alfonso Cuarón's A Little Princess, HEART Jerking not withstanding.
    • And the Shirley Temple version too. Heck, Shirley Temple was usually sweet dreams fuel incarnate.
  • Miracle on 34th Street.
  • While the older version was good, the new Hairspray is pure Sweet Dreams Fuel, from the joyous dance numbers, to its giddy optimism.
  • Try, just try, to watch Sigur Rós' homecoming-tour documentary Heima without wanting to move to Iceland and just bask in a sea of ethereal post-rock, cable-knit sweaters, and geological anomalies forever.
  • The end of It's a Wonderful Life looks cheesy and cliche if taken out of context, but taken with the rest of the film it makes excellent Christmas-flavored sweet dreams fuel. Many people owe their holiday warm fuzzies entirely to director Frank Capra.
  • Amélie, a beautiful little film that is essentially one big Heartwarming Moment that helps to restore faith that people aren't all that bad...
  • Invoked Trope in The Sound of Music, used (in the film version) as a counter against a terrifying thunderstorm: Raindrops on roses, and whiskers on kittens! Bright copper kettles, and warm woolen mittens!
    • The film itself, to the point where it was joked that if the world was ever going to end, then that movie would play on every channel, entirely for its soothing qualities.
  • Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory: Almost literally, "Pure Imagination".
  • Singin' in the Rain. Quite possibly the greatest feel-good movie ever made.
  • Mike Leigh's Happy-Go-Lucky: Poppy's cheerfulness really rubs off on you. Unless you can't stand quirky happy people who joke a lot :D.
  • The Magicians Hat: Try doing a youtube search for "Thistle sings" - the song, the voice and the imagery is truly sweet (and has considerably fewer gawky forest creatures than its prequel). But the Heartwarming Moment comes at the end when the aforementioned Magician defeats the film's bad guy but in the process ends up being another victim of said bad guy's freezing curse (and due to the timing is not freed by the curser's death) and Fairy Queen, who has come to reciprocate his affection is able to remove the curse with her tears
  • The Muppet Movie: Life is like a movie, write your own ending, keep believing, keep pretending... Any time you hear "The Rainbow Connection" your heart will smile.
  • Guest from the Future, a children's Sci-Fi classic from 1980s Russia. The characters—both kids and grownups—are all likeable, especially Alisa, the future girl herself. She made a new generation interested in science and the future, and the actress, Natalia Guseva, became a scientist herself. And the theme music is always worth a listen if you want to feel good.
  • You Never Dreamed is also very adorable, and lets you know that no matter how hard it may seem today, love always works out in the end.
  • While Transformers is filled with Nightmare Fuel courtesy of the Decepticons, it also has the BGM Arrival to Earth. Why is it here? Because it's the theme of the Autobots when they, well, arrive on earth. It's majestic and fits the tone of alien robot guardians coming from the stars to save us better than anything else in the film, and accompanies what may just be the best sequence in any Michael Bay film.
  • While they are widely known for their dark and cynical films, a few of The Coen Brothers films may qualify, namely Raising Arizona, The Hudsucker Proxy, and O Brother, Where Art Thou?, mostly for their sheer insanity and optimism, even if they do involve baby kidnapping, people jumping out of buildings, and breaking out of jail, respectively. Also, watching The Big Lebowski can put you in a good mood, and even Fargo, one of their darkest films, can be sort of heartwarming.
  • The Wizard of Oz is a beautiful family movie, a great fantasy movie and a classic loved by millions of people around the world. Ignore all the hanging Munchkin stories (it has been confirmed to be a crane), reassure yourself that the Flying Monkeys are just actors in rather weird costumes, and sit back and watch your nightmares melt away with the songs, funny moments and the incredible acting.
  • To get rid of the Nightmare Fuel some more, recover from reading Creepypastas or outright destroy the Nightmare Fuel in your head completely, just try watching any of Charlie Chaplin's Little Tramp movies, and of course, Laurel and Hardy's movies. You'll be laughing in no time, and perhaps in your dreams as well.
    • Add Buster Keaton to that list. He'll remain stone-faced but you'll be hard pressed not to laugh.
    • Anything by the Marx Brothers, really, but especially Duck Soup. These are my spies, anyone?
  • Mary Poppins. A spoonful of sugar really helps those nightmares go down.
  • The Muppets. That. Is. All.
  • Guardians of the Galaxy: When it's not making you cheer or making you laugh your ass off, pretty much all of the movie is this. What else do you call an adventurous band of True Companions jetting around the universe to a mix-tape of '70s pop hits? Or a friendly walking tree who gives flowers to children and conjures fireflies from his fingers? Or a space pirate forgiving his adopted son—with one wordless smile—after getting a troll doll as a gift? Or a baby potted plant dancing to the Jackson 5?
  • A Mighty Wind, with its colorful characters, incredible music (one of its songs was nominated for an Oscar!!) and all-around optimism.
  • Despite being really silly and dumb, Space Jam is a Guilty Pleasure to many. It's hard not to smile at Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes playing basketball together. Not to mention that theme song...
  • Believe it or not, some of Kevin Smith's films can be this, especially the endings.
    • Clerks II, after over 90 minutes of Refuge in Audacity, ends on a rather sweet note. Talk about earning your happy ending.
    • Dogma is actually much more dark and violent than is other films, but God herself (yes, it's a her) is just the incarnation of this. Plus Alanis Morrissette's credits song.
    • Hell, even the ending to Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back could be this, depending on your sense of humor. While two stoners beating the shit out of several people sounds like it should be the complete opposite of this trope, it's just so satisfying to watch and resonates with anyone who's felt besieged by internet trolls, accompanied by a triumphant soundtrack by Stroke 9, it becomes plain awesome.
  • There is this little musical called Mamma Mia!; hour and half of incredibly upbeat jukebox musical about a wedding almost-not-quite gone wrong. If you can get past the relatively-cheesy premise and writing (you're on this page, so you probably can)... there is no way you get out of watching this without grinning like an idiot.
  • Star Wars. The ultimate tale of good vs evil, with romance, adventure, mythology, and redemption thrown in for good measure, all while being set to one of the greatest film scores of all time. Because let's face it, we all spent part of our childhoods wishing we could be Jedi Knights a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.
    • It also happens to be everything Shadow Raiders is not. The heroes of the latter were never able to defeat the planet destroyer that threatened them, but everyone knows that Luke Skywalker destroyed the Death Star, and Poe Dameron
went further by destroying a galaxy-destroying planet. Suck it, Shadow Raiders!

    Literature 
  • Dragon Bones: Where the novel isn't Nightmare Fuel or Tear Jerker, it is this. There is a horribly mistreated stallion - who, after his horrible owner dies, gets to be taken care of by a nice, gentle young man, who introduces him to a nice mare. There is a mute girl ... who is under the protection of the local friendly ghost. Said friendly ghost is an immortal slave, magically bound to serve whoever the rightful owner of the castle is at the moment... but worry not, he has recently been inherited by a kind young man who feels very protective towards him. Ward, who is the young man in all those above examples, has a protection instinct towards anyone and everything that's smaller and weaker than him, and as he's a giant of a man, that's a lot of people. And animals. And supernatural creatures. Most fanfics concentrate on the heartwarming aspects of the work, making them pure Sweet Dreams Fuel.
  • Spring Heeled Jack, a half-graphic, half-novel about Victorian London's Batman as he rescues scruffy orphans with trinkets and takes on Mack the Knife himself, wittily and with great aplomb. When Philip Pullman does sweet, he does sweet. Makes you totally forget the real life Spring Heeled Jack was a terrifying rapacious abomination of Hell!
  • Lloyd Alexander's The Remarkable Journey of Prince Jen. Wise without being smarmy. Fun without being sugary. Harrowing without being Nightmare Fuel.
    • The cangue wasn't Nightmare Fuel? Or Li Kwang's adventure? Or the thirsty sword? But the paintbrush, kite and flute made up for a lot of it.
    • On the subject of Lloyd Alexander, The Arkadians does it for me. Retellings of myths? A truly happy ending? Rainbows? Can it get any better?
    • Arguably also The Cat Who Wished to be a Man. It's a very innocent outlook on humanity, and while some of it is depressing and frightening, there are enough genuinely witty or sweet moments to make it worth it.
    • A beautiful example of Earn Your Happy Ending from the above author. Taran and Eilonwy have been through danger and distress, fought battles and lost friends. They've got Belligerent Sexual Tension up the wazoo, they've nearly lost one another multiple times, and yet, at the end, They Do. Despite all the bad stuff that's happened, the ending causes major feels every single time.
    ''' And so they lived many happy years, and the promised tasks were accomplished. Yet long afterward, when all had passed away into distant memory, there were many who wondered whether King Taran, Queen Eilonwy, and their companions had indeed walked the earth, or whether they had been no more than dreams in a tale set down to beguile children. And, in time, only the bards knew the truth of it.
  • 14,000 things to be happy about by Barbara Ann Kipper. It's exactly what it says on the cover.
  • Audiobooks of A. A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh stories. A kind, grandfatherly voice narrating the adventures of the scatterbrained Pooh and his friends... The animated adaptations are good as well, but nothing beats the original stories.
    • Even just reading the books aloud is wonderful! Nothing is as adorable as reading about Pooh describing the lunch he packed while a series of little pictures show him packing said lunch.
  • Paddington Bear. You will never look at marmalade without a nostalgic smile ever again. Kind of like when you open a jar a Play-Doh.
  • Pretty much anything by Diana Wynne Jones can qualify as this. Slice of Life stories of friendship, romance and teamwork made interesting with magic!
  • Though you might wanna avoid Hexwood, Charmed Life, The Time of the Ghost, The Homeward Bounders, Dogsbody, Eight Days of Luke... They are totally amazing books, just not exactly what you'd call cheerful. Actually there are almost no books by her that are completely free of nightmare fuel. Still, that's what makes her awesome. You read about not nice things happening to nice people and end up with a warm fluffy feeling when it all works out. Only, like in a few of the titles above, sometimes it doesn't.
  • The entirety of Bridge of Birds, especially the ending.
  • Terrence Real's books (which sort of straddle the divide between Literature and Real Life) are made of Sweet Dreams Fuel. This editor is particularly reminded of a retelling of "Echo and Narcissus" in How Can I Get Through to You?
  • Oddly enough, Melina Marchetta's On the Jellicoe Road, despite being a pretty much non-stop Tear Jerker (or maybe because of?) has this by the bucketload.
  • Brian Floca's Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11. Yes, it's a picture book for little kids, but out of ALL the books that came out for the 40th anniversary of the moon landing, this one captured the beauty and wonder the best. ESPECIALLY the last picture, with the family running outside to play with the little toy rocket and the moon in the background.
  • The Secret Garden: A tale about the The Power of Friendship and the magic of nature. Its just great to see Mary and Colin enjoy life more and more each day with Dickon's help. Also applies to the 1993 movie and its beautiful soundtrack.
  • Dinotopia. Especially the very first one. A utopia of poets, writers, artists, and scientists? With friendly dinosaurs? Brilliantly illustrated? Oh yes.
  • The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou is like a happy, magical fairytale for grownups. Its whimsy and wonder are childlike without completely distancing oneself from adulthood.
  • So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish. We've followed Arthur Dent through so very much, from his house (and subsequently his planet) being demolished, going insane, and being given more reasons to say "So this is it. We're going to die" than any man should have in his lifetime. And in a few months, he recovers his planet (and subsequently his home) and finds true love with someone so right for him that she even makes the idea of leaving Earth once more bearable. It's remarkably sweet and somehow feels right to the point where the narrator can concede the point without losing the wit or the trademark simile-ing everything to death.
  • Connie Willis's Bellwether and To Say Nothing of the Dog. Particularly the second - all her trademark screwball-comedy dialogue, a charming homage to Victorian and Edwardian literature, and even in the darker bits, there's a sense that everything will turn out OK. Also, fluffy kittens.
  • P. G. Wodehouse's Jeeves and Wooster stories. They're just so innocent and silly that it's impossible not to smile through the whole thing.
    • Pretty much everything by Wodehouse, really.
  • Go break out the stash of books you read as a kid. Read one of your old Junie B. Jones books. You're welcome.
  • Doctor Dolittle. A man who does what he loves (talking to and helping animals) without caring about what other people think or how much money he earns doing so. His pets are all completely endearing, from Dab Dab the housekeeper to the parrot who first teaches Dolittle the animal's language. Turns to Tear Jerker when you realise the original form books have been out of print for 40 years.
  • The Little Prince. "You only see well with your heart. The essential is invisible to the eyes". Brings you happy tears.
  • As mentioned in the Films section, Death from Discworld is absolutely adorable — he doesn't quite understand humans, but he finds them extremely fascinating, and, in the end, he really cares about people, working hard to protect them from the Auditors.
    • Pretty much everything by Terry Pratchett can fall into this category, but ESPECIALLY his books for kids. Oh, and the final paragraph of 'Good Omens' (co-authored with Neil Gaiman).
  • Winnie-the-Pooh — AA Milne's stories are extremely heartwarming and funny, and reading one of the books will make you feel like a child again. And it comes with some inspiring wisdom too.
  • The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, if read with the original illustrations, has plenty of funny moments and the pictures are beautiful to look at.
  • The Silver Key. Yes, even HP Lovecraft can induce this. Mainly due to this story's lack of eldritch abominations, or the fact that it's a story about a man finally being able to physically go to the world of his dreams, and become a kid again. No Outer Gods or Great Old Ones to lure him into a trap, just straightforward re-entering your dreams. It seems against every other thing the man wrote, which is why it's sweet dreams fuel.
  • The Milly Molly Mandy stories.
  • Just about anything by Edward Lear, the Victorian author and artist famous for his nonsense poetry. His greatest hits include The Owl and the Pussycat, The Jumblies and The Quangle Wangle's Hat, as well as the wealth of limericks he wrote, which continue to entertain to this day.
  • Millions of people around the world will agree that, on the whole, The Lord of the Rings is not only a beautiful High Fantasy epic packed to the brim with amazing, 3D characters and plenty of awesomeness and badassery, but quite possibly the greatest form of escapism you can get. Just open The Fellowship Of The Ring and immediately you'll be partying with Bilbo, fighting the Nazgul with Aragorn, defeating the Balrog with Gandalf, chilling out with Legolas and Gimli, accompanying Frodo and Sam to Mordor and dancing with Tom Bombadil.
    • This quote helps to get through some pretty rough days:
    “There, peeping among the cloud-wrack above a dark tower high up in the mountains, Sam saw a white star twinkle for a while. The beauty of it smote his heart, as he looked up out of the forsaken land, and hope returned to him. For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach.”
  • Any book made by Rosemary Wells, such as the Max and Ruby series, Voyage To The Bunny Planet, Timothy Goes to School, and the Yoko series. They will make you smile with their cute illustrations and nostalgic overtones.
  • The "Cozy Mystery", by its very nature. They're a peculiar sub-category of mystery novels written by fans of the genre who want all of the wonder and satisfaction of a good mystery without the inevitable sex and violence and tragedy. Their mantra is essentially, "There's enough negativity in the world already, and even adults need to kick back with a simple, pain-free story every once in a while". The result? An entire sub-genre of mystery stories deliberately written to be as fun and happy-go-lucky as humanly possible, with an absolute minimum of death. Like "the pulps" before them, "the cozies" have managed to acquire a whole list of oddly specific genre conventions that seem calculated to give readers the warm and fuzzies. To elaborate:
    • Animal companions are an absolute necessity, and many cozies feature friendly cats and dogs as narrators. A novel about a mystery-solving cat running for President is par for the course.
    • Professional cops and private detectives are a no-no, as the hero of a cozy must be a good-hearted everyman (or everywoman) with a down-to-earth hobby or occupation, like a chef or a librarian.
    • Even when a murder kicks off the plot, it must happen in as bloodless a manner as possible (poisoning and defenestration are the preferred methods), and it can be nothing more than a plot device. Not even a murder can rob a cozy of its inherent sweetness.
    • A cozy must take place in an idyllic small-town setting, with as many lovably quirky characters as possible. Solving a mystery is the perfect bonding experience for neighbors who love each other.
    • Though the world of a cozy doesn't have the slightest whiff of demons, monsters, or the occult, ghosts frequently appear. They're invariably friendly, and always happy to offer helpful clues to our intrepid heroes.
    • It's considered perfectly normal to include recipes in a cozy novel, since nothing gets the reader into the spirit of a cozy like munching on something sweet.
  • Harry Potter. No matter how sad, dark, or scary the books get, there's a reason so many people consider this series to be their childhoods, and there's also a reason that, in spite of all the danger the characters get into, wanting to go to Hogwarts is pretty much a universal experience among bookworms. These books are so much more than a fantasy adventure series (though it is exceedingly good at being that). They're about friendship, bravery, tolerance, justice, and, above all, The Power of Love.

  • Reading just one panel of Calvin and Hobbes.
    "It's a magical world, Hobbes ol' buddy. Let's go exploring!"
    • Yes. C and H is awesome.
    • Hey, waitaminute. C and H is a sugar company. Coincidence?
    • The quote's a bit of a Tear Jerker, considering the strip it comes from is the very last C and H strip. Every other comic of its ten year run is made of cute.
  • Frazz is one of the cleverest strips being published today, and frequently gives the warm fuzzies besides!
  • Cul de Sac. Take Lucky Star, remove the Moe, make everyone grade schoolers, and watch yourself become all giddy as you read it.
  • Garfield. Yes, he's not the most lovable comic character around, but for anyone who grew up reading the strips, there's always a wonderful nostalgia that goes with it.

  • The Ku Klux Klan was listed in the now-removed Real Life section of the Nightmare Fuel pages, and quite rightly. But the method of their defeat, the complete changing of their image from a distasteful but marginally tolerable part of the American social fabric to a collection of hate-filled idiots, is most definitely this: Superman took them on, and won. No joke. For the serial "Clan of the Fiery Cross," one of the writers of the Adventures of Superman radio serial infiltrated a "klavern," as the Klan called their chapters, and loaded the script with every last possible bit of genuine Klan slang, methodology and doctrine. The Klan leadership was so panicked they even tried to get the serial cancelled by organizing a boycott of Kellogg's products in Atlanta. It didn't work.
  • Michael Fassbender reading "Dracula" from BBC's "Book at bedtime" radio series. It's a scary story, but he makes it feel like a bedtime story. Very soothing to listen to at night.
  • Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere, reimagined as a radio play, starring James McAvoy and Benedict Cumberbatch. Sweet dreams, tropers.
  • I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue. There's just something utterly delightful about a group of men in their sixties and seventies cracking silly (and often subtly dirty) jokes. On top of that, it's been running since 1972, with a lot of the original cast remaining.
  • The Joy Boys, for much of the same reasons as I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue. Two dorky university students cracking jokes and performing comedy bits. They are Willard Scott (see Live Action TV) and blind radio personality Ed Walker.

    Theater 
  • Almost all of Shakespeare's comedies have at least a little of this in the final scene. Typically, there are Weddings for Everyone. A Midsummer Night's Dream ends with the promise of eternal love for all the couples, because the fairies are protecting them and will protect their children—plus, the laborers have put on their play, and everyone's going to continue partying, day in and day out, for the next two weeks.
  • Almost, Maine when it isn't being a Tear Jerker.
  • War Horse, because SERIOUSLY.
  • The Five Dragon Daughter - the allegory of Christ redeeming you in the form of a musical, dance filled, epic adventure, with a questing prince in a mythical Chinese-esque kingdom. The story turns out with all set right, and the original music is fantastic.
  • "No One Is Alone" from Into the Woods.
  • "All I Ask of You" from The Phantom of the Opera.
  • "Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music in universe, and out.

    Web Comics 
  • Question Duck, a Web Comic, is about a boy and his duck that goes around the world as Question Duck asks questions. General duck adorableness plus Scenery Porn just makes you squee whenever you see a new update.
  • Count Your Sheep. A webcomic about a young girl, her widowed mother, and the imaginary friend they share that helps out in the event of insomnia. Both funny and cute.
  • City of Reality, starts out in a world made entirely of good and friendly people.
  • My Cardboard Life, a Slice of Life comic about people made from materials such as cardboard, paper, and tin foil (et cetera) is consistently adorable without being sappy or Tasting Like Diabetes. The character designs are cute, the puns are surprisingly funny, and the art is quite awesome.
  • Awful Hospital, full stop. Irrespective of its foundation on (cartoonish) Nausea Fuel and Body Horror, it's an irresistibly adorable and heartfelt adventure about a mom looking for her baby in a hospital full of surprisingly benevolent, even sympathetic monsters. It has some very sweet and relatable characters and plenty of great jokes too, and some absolutely gorgeous and inventive character designs.
  • A Moment of Peace, despite its After the End setting, is one huge lump of this trope.
  • My Milk Toof. A web photocomic about two baby teeth going on adorable, kid-friendly adventures.
  • Rain, especially for anyone questioning their gender identity or orientation. The characters are adorable, the writing is good and it's got plenty of references for your inner geek.
  • Tripping Over You, with its perfect mix of sweet and funny moments.
  • Zoophobia, a highly underrated webcomic that, even when incorporating some intense or terrifying moments, combines Slice of Life with some good laughs and pure sweetness, with a cast of adorable, lovable characters, a bright color palette, and a wonderfully beautiful art style. It also holds the distinction of being one of few works where even the Anti Christ is a character you want to snuggle with.
  • Check, Please! is a web comic about a young southern male ice-skating champion named Bitters and his growing relationship with his ice hockey team. Warning: Tons of adorable bromances.
  • Lady of the Shard is absolutely sweet dream fuel, despite the tumultuous events that occur. The pure kindness of the main character, her devotion, and her decision to show the 'villain' kindness despite the danger they're all in is absolutely heart-melting. This is a lovely comic if one is in need of lady-centric relationships (friendship, romantic, platonic or otherwise).
  • Stutterhug a (mostly) extremely adorable webcomic about cute creatures done wordlessly.
  • 4AM shower is a webcomic with cute animals dedicated to embodying this trope. Each update is a self-contained dose of heartwarming. Every. Single. One.

  • Anything from Team Starkid. They're just a bunch of kids in college goofing around and being ridiculous, but they're all friends and it's so clear that they love what they're doing. Not to mention that for all the ridiculousness, all of their plays have this heart to them deep down. Couple that with all the amazingly talented actors and writers they've got with them, as well as the awesomely catchy music and the insanely quotable humor, and you've got something totally awesome.
  • The story Love. Being on a site dedicated to creepy stories just helps.

  • There's a lot of Nightmare Fuel in AJCO, especially during the Silo arc (in which all the characters are forced into a State bunker after nuclear warheads are sent at Pi-TEC). But in the midst of it, Egg - who is nearing the Despair Event Horizon following all of the horrors she's been exposed to - and a scared and lonely Kube comfort one another with sympathetic hugs and reassuring declarations of their intent to survive. It doesn't take them long to fall in love.
  • RWBY credits track "Gold," a bubbly tune about being a protective, comforting, and overall positive influence on somebody's life.
    Don't you worry about the dark / I will light up the night / With the love in my heart / I will burn like the sun / I will keep you safe and warm...
    • And "Wings", which plays over the end credits of episode 16.
    Dry your eyes now, baby / Broken wings won't hold you down / You'll take flight soon, baby / You'll be lifted up / And you'll be there...
    • Let's not forget All Our Days, a song about a girl pledging to do anything to keep her little sister safe, while also looking up to her as the years go by.
  • RWBY Chibi is this in spades. Whereas the main show went Darker and Edgier and had a lot of Tear Jerker moments, RWBY Chibi is like a warm safety blanket with lots of fun characters, including a few old faces. The only exceptions would be Episode 6 of Season 2 and a few instances of Comedic Sociopathy, but otherwise, it's as cute and innofensive as it gets.

  • OMFG DOGS. Just some cute puppies running around a rainbow background to the tune of a cute, bouncy instrumental tune. Guaranteed to make you at least crack a smile.
  • While Don't Hug Me I'm Scared is mostly known for its Nightmare Fuel, the friendship between the three main characters is pretty adorable. When they're not being taught "lessons", they can be seen doing activities such as watching TV, having a picnic, and playing a board game. And even when Red Guy escapes from the "puppet world," his main goal seems to be trying to help Yellow Guy and Duck Guy escape too.
  • This Tortoise Could Save a Life. It features a little tortoise eating a big strawberry while late Alan Rickman narrates in a somber tone how the video and all ad money that it collects goes to charity for refugees and children. Needless to say that it not only became a instant hit on social media with the video going viral (especially with the Tear Jerker of Rickmans sudden death), it is also simply adorable to watch the turtle struggle to eat that big strawberry.
  • Animal videos in general. One can spend years on the sweet side of Youtube, watching videos of puppies trying to howl, cats playing with toys, monkeys having a shower, owls getting petted and so on and so forth...

  • Amazing Phil. His videos tend to be very positive and cheerful, especially when he interacts with his best friend, danisnotonfire.
  • The Laughing Chewbacca Mask Lady video has evoked this reaction in a great many people. Honestly, how can someone getting this much joy out of life not stimulate joy in others? So sweet were the dreams of the masses, the lady became instantly famous.
  • "Cloud" is a short made by college artist Mr Haliboot about a little cloud who falls down to Earth and befriends a young girl. Trust me, you will get cuteness diabetes after seeing this.
  • Youtube user Crispy Toast's "Rights and Wrongs" series. They're videos showing the right and wrong thing to do in certain situations, like going to a movie theater or eating at a restaurant. The characters who do the right thing are always treated nicely, and the characters who do the wrong thing go through all sorts of Amusing Injuries and other punishments. The series is very lighthearted despite some cases of profanity.
  • Pencilmation is literally drawn with Sweet Dreams Fuel, and virtually every one of its light-hearted, sweet and fun episodes is a great way to look at your crummy little sketchbook doodles in a more positive light.
  • Rebel Taxi, aka Pan Pizza. If you're tired of overly angry, loud, negative-accentuating Caustic Critics, then Pan makes for a nice change of pace. In addition to being utterly hilarious, hearing him so honestly gushing over what he loves is just so nice to listen to.
  • Why humans are adorable.

    This Wiki 
  • This page is like a nest for these things.
  • Sugar Wiki, of course! It just gives off a feel of joy on every page.
  • Trying reading all of the Heartwarming Moments pages. And then the Tear Jerker pages.
    • This page, too! Try reading through the Heartwarming Moments page and then this one and then not feeling like you're on top of the world.
    • Seconded. Just reading all the examples brings up so many happy memories (of the examples you've experienced personally) and so much hope and curiosity about the ones you haven't.
    • Read all the Moment of Awesome pages too,
    • Funny Moments can sometimes provide these.
  • Just discovering this wiki is a heartwarming moment for some. It's clear from the very first page one reads that this is where stories go to be celebrated.
  • The Triumphant Reprise page, being about dark or sad songs being turned on their head into a happy song, can give great examples of concentrated SDF.
  • The You Are Not Alone trope page is a little overemotional at times, but mostly it's just very genuinely encouraging.
  • Ditto for the You Are Better Than You Think You Are page.
  • The 'And the Fandom Rejoiced,' pages. Did you think you were the only one who cared about (insert obscure work here)? Of course not.
  • The page image of Strawberry Shorthand. Just look at that tortoise ^_^ And the caption is just perfect.
  • The first line in the description of Special Snowflake Syndrome.
  • The Anti-Nihilist is this for some. Hearing about the multiple ways that people make something so beautiful out of something as depressing as nihilism is very touching.
  • The real life page for Mean Character, Nice Actor is very sweet. It's so nice to read the stories of actors who were nice to the other people on set when the cameras weren't rolling.
  • So My Kids Can Watch is perhaps one of the cutest trivia items on here! It's so great to see how the actors listed care so much about their children. It's especially adorable to hear how the kids react to seeing their parents in a movie or other work.

  • Cute Overload. To the point where it could be used as a very very cheap therapy. It's hard to have a bad day when there's a website devoted to cute.
  • BBC Radio nightly Shipping Forecast. No, really. There's a beautiful orchestral arrangement called "Sailing By" played in between the preceeding programme and the actual forecast (as a buffer, both to allow sailors to easily tune into the station and to fill time before the shipping forecast starts at 00:48hrs precisely), which is Sweet Dreams Fuel alone. Then there's the forecast itself, whereby the weather report for the seas around the coasts of the British Isles is read calmly at dictation speed. The whimsical names of the sea areas, the news of rough conditions at sea while listeners are safely at home and the hypnotic pace of the forecast make the programme popular beyond those solely interested in nautical weather. It's a Great British institution, and it aids a restful sleep.
  • It Made My Day, Gives Me Hope and Love Gives Me Hope, three websites with the goal of recording little moments of joy.
  • Bogleech. Yes, seriously. It's a site made by someone who absolutely LOVES all the creepy crawly, wiggly icky, creatures in the world. What does this mean, and why is it Sweet Dreams Fuel? Because it shows that, no matter how many people may dislike something (or someone) for not being aesthetically pleasing, there are some people out there who thinks that it/him/her is great. The whole idea of the site is just unbelievably sweet if you view it from this perspective. And educational too! ...But then, if you happen to scare easily, you may want to view the site during the day, find the aesop by sunset, and then go to sleep with that happy thought in your mind.
  • Any Disney Theme Park, particularly because of attractions like Soarin', Philarmagic, Muppet*Vision 3D or the like. Hey, they don't call it the "happiest place on Earth" for nothing, even the sight of the Castle and meeting your favorite characters (Mickey, Minnie, Pooh, Tigger, Tinker Bell, Periwinkle, Rosetta, Iridessa, Cinderella, Ariel, Jasmine, Rapunzel, etc.) can make you feel emotional.
  • This video for the Ringtone Tiger Boo. Also counts as an Ear Worm.
  • TED Talks. There's something about people talking about technology and how great the future will be that makes you feel happy.
  • Pick up a copy of the audiobook version of Clockwork Angels, a novel based off the album by Rush. The audiobook is read by Neil Peart, Rush's drummer and lyricist, and while he isn't exactly the greatest actor in the world, his voice is deep and booming and soothing and kind of has a "grandfather-telling-you-a-bedtime-story" quality to it, even if the plot of the novel (set in a dystopian steampunk universe) doesn't necessarily constitute itself to a bedtime story. Neil's voice is just so sonorous and relaxing.
  • This HBO special from 1999, full of sweetly sung lullabies and animated children's stories. Nostalgia + Cute kids musing on dreams = Pure sweetness.
  • Any art or illustration made by Penny Parker. Especially the ones featuring animals and rabbits. The bunny comes are the cutest ones to look at.
  • Calm.Com, by design is supposed to be this. It contains footage of rainstorms, rivers and slow paced music in order to do what else but calm you down.
