Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'': In "Fish and Visitors", after Yosemite Sam takes a shower at Bugs's house, we get treated to [[SarcasmMode lovely]] shots of a dirty toilet and a large wad of Sam's hair in the shower. [[ScreamingAtSquick Bugs reacts accordingly]].


* TropeMaker and UrExample: ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' would use these almost OnceAnEpisode. Some particularly nauseating examples can be seen in episodes like "Nurse Stimpy" or "Ren's Toothache" (which is the episode the page image is from).

In the latter episode, Ren's teeth [[MirrorCrackingUgly are so ugly that the bathroom mirror breaks]].


** There's also the episode "Wormy" where the titular caterpillar turns into a butterfly, and upon seeing the closeup, Patrick and [=SpongeBob=] are so terrified they think it's a monster. (Fun fact: the close-up is of a horsefly, not a butterfly.)

(Fun fact: the close-up is of a horsefly, not a butterfly.)

Added DiffLines:

** Used again in "[[Recap/MickeyMouseS3E13CouplesSweaters Couple's Sweaters]]" when Mickey suffers the effects of the dry, itchy sweater he's wearing, including chapped lips and rashy skin.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Tea at the Treedome'' features [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UxYkB3BE5HE some rather disturbing close-ups of SpongeBob]]. This is the first example of this trope in the series, since it is in the first episode (which used a ThreeShorts format rather than a Two Shorts one).

Added DiffLines:

** Gary's food in "Bunny Hunt" has a ''disembodied finger and ear'' inside of it.


* Extremely frequent in newer episodes of ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'', but a few older ones did this too. "Nasty Patty", anyone?

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Turbo}} FAST'' episode "Zoo Lander" gives one of Skidmark and White Shadow's greasy, sleep-deprived faces after they spend 37 straight hours playing a video game.

Added DiffLines:

* Name an episode of ''Series/BarRescue'' that involves an infestation, a dirty kitchen, or any shoddy equipment, and chances are something is going to be zoomed in on.

Added DiffLines:

* The [[LethalEatery Dur-T]] [[DisgustingPublicToilet Cafe]] in ''VideoGame/Mother3'' is basically made out of these, looking '''considerably''' more detailed and realistic than most other things in said game while also being '''incredibly'''-visibly dirty and dilapidated and featuring object descriptions such as "lots and lots of old chewed gum has been stuck onto the bottom of this eating table", "the floor is completely covered with mold spores", and "moldy, rotten, withered old anchovies and the like are stuck to the record inside the cigarette-stain-and-old-ketchup-covered jukebox".


* In ''Anime/CowboyBebop'', near the end of the episode "Toys In The Attic", both Spike and the viewers are treated to a downright-''[[EldritchAbomination horrifyingly'' detailed close-up of [[spoiler: the true form of said episode's infamous [[ItCameFromTheFridge Fridge Monster.]]
