Added DiffLines:

* The films made by Creator/{{UPA}} [[TropeCodifier codified]] the style as we know it today. The studio was revolutionary in its application of modern design to animation, which included bold lines and simple graphic shapes for the characters.

* Esurance insurance commercials.

[[folder:{{Web Comics}}]]
* Ditto for later installments of the webcomic ''Webcomic/MacHall''.
* Faye's flashbacks in ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent''.
* The entire run of ''Webcomic/{{Garanos}}''.
* Cast of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' is normally represented by chibi-like "sprites" with outline, but lose it and gain normal human proportions when in [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Hero Mode]].
[[/folder]]


[[folder:{{Video Games}}]]
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker''. Despite being a cel-shaded game, there are no outlines whatsoever, adding to the uniqueness of the particular style of cel-shading the game uses.
** On the other hand, this style of drawing is played straight in the game's 2D artwork, contrasting with the in-game graphics. Curiously, the redrawn art for the HD remake averts this.

[[folder:{{Western Animation}} - Television]]
* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' sported ''no'' outlines. Genndy Tartakovsky once mentioned how this contrasted with his last work, ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory''.
* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' actually ''did'' have outlining, it just wasn't thick nor was it present on every character.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/TheTomAndJerryShow The Tom and Jerry Show (2014)]]'': Averted starting from season 2, where it added outlines to make the show look similar to the original theatrical shorts.
* ''WesternAnimation/RubyGloom''
* ''WesternAnimation/{{The Xs}}''
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Sixteen}}''
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Stoked}}''
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretShow''
* ''WesternAnimation/InvisibleNetworkOfKids''
* ''WesternAnimation/NutriVentures''
* ''WesternAnimation/WildKratts'' had not-all-that-thick outlines for its original pilot episode, "Polar Bears Don't Dance", but [[ArtShift switched to an outline-free style]] for subsequent episodes.
