Western Animation / Yakkity Yak
was a short-lived show created by Australian animator Mark Gravas for Nickelodeon
It was a show about Yakkity, a yak who dreams of becoming a famous comedian, and his friends, an anthropomorphic pineapple named Keo (don't ask why) and a female human named Lemony (and on some occasions, a robot girl named Penelope).
Yakkity Yak provides examples of:

- Big Bad: Gary.
- Butt Monkey: Mr. Highpants and Rondo Jr.
- The Cutie: Penelope and Lemony! D'awww...
- The Ditz: Despite being rivals, Yakkity nor Rondo Jr. aren't really that distinct from each other.
- Expy: Lemony is oddly similar to Lisa Simpson, only without the use as an Author Tract.
- Also, Gary, the Big Bad in certain episodes, is very similar to a ceratin villaionous character from SpongeBob SquarePants, what with his constantly failing evil plans to steal the secret recipe for some specific food.
