* Tails from ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' is probably the first Kid Appeal character Creator/{{Sega}} made, featuring in just about every cartoon as Sonic's best friend. Later games feature him as the smart one, but he's always been perfectly capable of keeping up with Sonic (meanwhile, both of the animated series made him into more a weak but lovable sort, with the [=SatAM=] version [[AdaptationalWimp turning him into]] [[DistressedDude a nearly-useless prop for Sonic and the team to rescue]], whereas the more humorous ''Adventures'' version still got a few moments of competence now and then).
** Charmy came later, and was followed by Cream and Cheese.

** Cheetor from ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' is also yellow, fast and the youngest one on the Maximal Team. And if that weren't enough to tell that he's the kid of the team, he's got ''freckles''. Unlike Bumblebee however, he is actually quite a competent warrior and [[CharacterDevelopment later became]] TheLancer to Optimus Primal. In ''Beast Machines'', he's replaced in this role by Nightscream

*** This role was then taken over by Holi in ''Anime/TransformersVictory'', who was blue but otherwise a combination of all this trope's aspects.

** Hot Shot, from ''Anime/TransformersArmada'', also yellow, falls under the third version. A bit of a goofball but [[LetsGetDangerous surprisingly competent in battle]]. His role was handed off to Ironhide in ''[[Anime/TransformersEnergon Energon]]'' and then 180'd right back to him in ''[[Anime/TransformersCybertron Cybertron]]''.



** In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', Bumblebee became the Ankle Biter, in accordance with the show's more serious tones, being based more on his film counterpart. But he's still paired with the youngest of the human characters.

** Emiru Aisaki from ''Anime/HugttoPrettyCure'' is an even straighter example, since she's the youngest of the Cures (being in elementary school while the others are in middle school) and has elements of TheTeamWannabe since she secretly dresses up as a Cure and wishes she could be one before [[AscendedFangirl joining the team for real]].

* Parodied in the WesternAnimation/{{Pixar Short|s}} ''Mr. Incredible and Pals'' (presented as a ShowWithinAShow in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' universe), where Mr. Incredible and Frozone are joined by the bunny Mr. Skipperdoo, whose contribution to the plot is looking cute and occasionally bouncing up and down.

He sings songs about how he loves summer, despite being a snowman (he doesn't understand the concept of melting yet), and generally acts like a young child with a man's voice. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen In development]] the writers toned down his original personality because he was deemed too annoying instead of amusing. Olaf ended up appealing well to both younger and older audiences.
