* CrapsaccharineWorld: The protagonists would seem to lead pretty carefree lives, if it wasn't casually shown that they have to scavenge for food and are incredibly vulnerable to the hazards and dangers of being so small, from both animals and the elements. They don't even seem to have regular shelter.
* EggFolk: One episode is about the characters looking after an egg they accidentally knocked down. It's animate like them but has no limbs to move on its own, and is an insulting {{Jerkass}} that makes heavy demands of them. Funnily enough it's more like the egg shell itself is animate, as when the chick hatches from it lives independently.

The series follows the hilarious adventures of four small-but-mighty best friends: Twig, Rocksy, Leaf, and Very Berry. The pals live in an unkempt yard belonging to a trio of equally unkempt humans and, despite the obstacles they face, are always up for whatever life throws at them. Whether they’re soaring on soda lids, getting stuck in a ball of sticky goop, or worshipping a broken toilet, each day holds the promise of new adventures and surprises.
