Also used by Raven in the same episode when she refuses for a final time the party the others have planned for her birthday and destroys everything with her powers.
  • ¡Mucha Lucha! is a perfect example of this. The Flea did one when his baby sister Pulgita is about to be killed by The Masked Toilet so he went inside the toilet and Pulgita beats up The Masked Toilet; at the end of the episode The Flea did it again when his scary story he told his baby sister when he tucked her in became true when The Masked Toilet wanted his shoes (The Flea said it three times).
    • In The Return of El Malefico, Buena Girl says this and she was too late because Rikochet read the code of masked wrestling backward, which set El Malefico free. Also, it was The Flea's fault because he tricked Rikochet into doing it while The Flea was controlled by El Malefico. At the end of the movie, El Malefico also said this because he failed to take over the world.

    • In SpongeBob's dream at the beginning of "Blackened Sponge", he plays rock, paper, scissors with Jack M. Crazyfish and sees him cheat by shifting from rock to scissors after SpongeBob draws paper. When the real Crazyfish does the same trick at the end of the episode, SpongeBob doesn't notice due to having two black eyes and this is his reaction.
    • SpongeBob screams one in "Best Day Ever" when Squidward's concert ends right when he sits down.
    • "Single Cell Anniversary" couples this with a Big "YES!":
      Karen: (in tears from Plankton's song) Krabby patty secret formula loading completed...!!
      Plankton: YES!
      SpongeBob: NO!
      (Karen shorts out from the tears and shuts down)
      Plankton: NO!
      SpongeBob: YES!
  • The Big "NO!" is a Running Gag throughout King of the Hill. Nearly always uttered by Hank, in a semi-nonverbal, almost primal-scream manner. One of the funniest parts of the show.
    • There's a pretty epic one in "Luanne's Saga", one of the early episodes. The face he makes as he does this has become something of a Memetic Mutation.
  • Sev Trek: Pus in Boots (the Australian CGI spoof of Star Trek: The Next Generation). Captain Pinchhard utters one of these upon hearing that Measly Cruncher is going to save the Enterforaprize for the 47th time. He stops this from happening by vaporizing Measly.
  • The Simpsons:
    • In the episode "Mayored to the Mob", bodyguard-in-training Homer practices his slow-motion dive. Making it funnier, the instructor is voiced by Mark Hamill (who starred As Himself in the same episode), who should know his Nooooos...
      (Homer gives a running dive with an unenthusiastic Big No)
      Instructor: Well, your dive wasn't bad, but I just didn't believe your 'NOOOOOO'! You gotta sell it! Remember, your 'NOOOOOO' is what gets you your next job! Now drop and give me twenty.
      Instructor: Better!
    • Used straight in episode "The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson", when Barney discovers he holds the black pickled egg that means he's today's designated driver.
      Barney: (after noticing the others have normal eggs and slowly seeing he got the black one) NOOOOOO! (crushes the egg in his hand and holds his head)
      Homer: (coming up to him) You got the black one.
    • Also used straight by Bart in "Black Widower".
    • Seymour Skinner does three in a row in "Bart's Comet", each with increased intensity; firstly, when he discovers that Bart has managed to discover a comet, something Skinner has dreamed of for years, when he briefly left Bart in charge of his telescope whilst trying to capture a less-than-complimentary hot-air-balloon depicting Skinner with a giant rear that Bart earlier released ("Noooo!"). Then, he realises that in his earlier grief he's released the hot-air-balloon, letting it float free to humiliate him further ("Noooo!"). Then, a paperboy drops the morning paper in front of him, with a headline reading "PREZ SEZ: SCHOOL IS FOR LOSERS": ("NOOOOOOOOOOOO!").
    • Skinner pulls a similar one in season 4's "Duffless".
    • Done yet again in "Homer and Lisa Exchange Cross Words". Homer makes Lisa so angry that she tells him that she's going to use Marge's maiden name (Bouvier) instead of Simpson. Homer drops to his knees and screams "NOOOOOOOOOOO!" Then another girl walks by and asks if he wants to buy some Band Candy. Homer's reply: "YEEEEEEEEEEEES!"
    • And then there's "Home Sweet Homediddly-Dum-Doodily":
      Ned: Do you reject Satan, and all his empty promises?
      Homer: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! (skin burns on contact with holy water)
    • "Guess Who's Coming to Criticize Dinner?":

      Homer: Eh, I've had a good run. (prepares to take a bite)
      Lisa: No! (thinks) It's low-fat!
    • And parodied yet again in an episode where Grandpa is a Sprawl-Mart greeter, and gets knocked onto an out-of-control shopping buggy.
      Grandpa: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO— (cut to show that he's headed for a stack of lawn gnomes) —OOOOOOMES!
    • In "Homer's Barbershop Quartet", Chief Wiggum lets out one that gets twisted into a wolf-type howl at the moon.
    • In the beginning of "The Bart Wants What It Wants", Marge threw the Olympic Torch to the Olympic Administrators and the helicopter crashed and...
      Administrator 1: Are you okay?
      Administrator 2: Yeah, I'm ok...(looks at extinguished Olympic Torch) NNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
    • In "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular", alternate clips are shown including another ending as to who shot Mr. Burns. When he fingers Smithers as the culprit, Smithers gives a big no then adds, "Wait a minute. Yes."
    • Played for Laughs in "Marge Gets a Job". Smithers is finished cleaning the unirals until...
      (Homer bursts in)
      Homer: Oh, man! I really gotta— (unzips fly)
    • Apu does this when Taking the Bullet for James Woods in "Homer and Apu".
    • In "Sideshow Bob Roberts", Bart learns that his nemesis Sideshow Bob is to be set free from prison leading to Big No. However, he learns this in the middle of class while secretly listening to a radio, prompting a rather bemused response:
    Ms. Krapabbel: ... Well. Despite Bart's objections, the people of South Africa can now vote in free democratic elections.
    • In "Scuse Me While I Miss the Sky", Lisa, who doesn't want the town's lights on at night, lets one out as Mayor Quimby flips the switch turning on every light in town.
    • In "Homer the Vigilante", an angry mob shows up at the Simpsons' door after Homer fails to prevent a notorious cat burglar from stealing a cubic zirconium from the museum, leading to Jimbo losing respect for him.
      Jimbo: You let me down, man! Now I don't believe in nothin' no more! I'm going to law school!
      Homer: NOOOOOOOO!
    • In "Lisa's Date with Density", after she helped Nelson escape from the cops, he looks to see Skinner's reaction as he's cleaning his house after a rancid food attack:
      Nelson: Wait until he sees what I left in his birdbath.
      Skinner: NOOOOOOO!
    • "Treehouse of Horror IX" segment "Terror in Tiny Town" has Scratchy, after being transported from the TV, falling for Snowball II. Marge thinks it's sweet, then she tells him that he'll have to be neutered.
      Scratchy: (while holding his privates) NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
    • In "Catch 'Em If You Can", when Bart sabotages Homer and Marge's flight to Atlantic City:
      Bart: So, Mom and Dad are going to Atlantic City, but their luggage isn't. And Homer's getting the low-fat meal.
      (cuts to the outside of the plane that Homer and Marge are on)
      Homer: NOOOOOOO!
    • In "Fatzcarraldo", this is Homer's reaction to being told that Krusty Burger has replaced their ketchup with beet aioli as part of their new, healthier menu.
  • Many in Futurama. In particular, being a parody of melodramatic acting, Calculon the robotic soap opera star is prone to do this sort of thing a lot.
    • "Bend Her" has two in one episode. Calculon is being interviewed on a talk show with Coilette as another guest (who is Bender who changed his robotic sex and invented his own country to win multiple fembot Olympic medals). When asked to set the audience up for the clip they are about to show from a new episode, Calculon responds "No, I think it's self-explanatory." The clip shows Calculon screaming "NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOO!" (while a pirate inexplicably cooks burgers on a barbecue behind him). After the clip, Calculon nonchalantly replies, "Funny story: The script called for me to say 'yes' but I gave it a little twist." Afterwards, "Coilette" ends up engaged to Calculon but has to call the wedding off before the sex change becomes permanent. After... she fakes her death of at what would have been her wedding to Calculon...
      Dr. Zoidberg: (in the middle of eating and nonchalantly) I'm a doctor. He's dead.
      Calculon: No! NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOO! N! O! O! O!
    • Done again by Calculon in "That's Lobstertainment!", when Harold Zoid (Zoidberg's over-the-hill celebrity uncle) is trying to make a movie that will guarantee him an Oscar.
    • In "Mars University", Gunther the genius monkey decides to get a degree in business with his now only decent intelligence. causing Professor Farnsworth to shout a big no.
    • In "Love and Rocket", Bender dumps the crazy Planet Express ship while she, and the main cast inside her, are being chased by a large fleet from Omicron Persei 8. Cue big, shrieking no.
    • "When Aliens Attack": Fry gets one off after a ship from Omicron Persei 8 blows up his sand castle, immediately after the Omnicronians blew up many world monuments gathered in the same part of New New York.
    • And Fry again in Into the Wild Green Yonder when Bender gives him back his game (he was playing Tetris) and Bender tell him he missed up the "L" formation he was making with the blocks.
    • Fry again in "Fry and the Slurm Factory", when Leela dumps the trough of pure Slurm he'd been eating from into the sewers.
    • Fry yet again in "Time Keeps on Slippin'" when his love letter to Leela ends up being destroyed.
    • Again Fry in "Put Your Head on My Shoulder", when Fry, whose disembodied head is attached to Amy, long story, does this in slow-motion when the credit card for the date drops. Fun fact: It was not actual slow-motion, Billy West did the deep-voiced "NO!" in real-time.
    • When the giant Bender in "Anthology of Interest I" finally shuts his eye bay after his untimely death, this is the first thing that comes out of Fry's mouth.
    • Bender in "Lethal Inspection" when he learns he wasn't built with a back-up unit.
    • In "The Duh-Vinci Code" when Fry accidentally destroys the Professor's Beard of Leonardo Da Vinci, only for him to find a hidden scroll in it a second later.
      Professor: No! Noooooo! But possibly yes.
    • Played with by Bender in "The Silence of the Clamps" where, after delivering a Big "NO!" as he witnesses Calculon getting clamped into a misshapen mess in front of the Robot Mafia, describes the scene in hilariously full detail in front of the chief of police, complete with imitation of said Big "NO!". When required to testify before a grand jury, he repeats his bit-by-bit exposition of the Robot Mafia's act, only to have the Big "NO!" reproduction interrupted by the prosecutor. He asks to let him finish, then lets out a brief "o" representing the end of the Big "NO!", then says that he is, in fact, finished.
    • In fact, there's so many that somebody made a 6-minute long compilation of them.
  • In a Robot Chicken sketch involving Archie and his friends dealing with deaths plaguing everyone, Moose lets out a Big Duh when Ms. Grundy is crushed by a car.
    • In the Star Wars special (third one), Vader slips on something, and falls. His hand gets stuck in the toilet, and the toilet flushes. Cue the: "NOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
    • In the first season finale parodying You Can't Do That on Television, the Bloopers host is being held prisoner and lets one out when he's told that the only movie his torturers have is Christmas with the Kranks.
    • In the "Heimlich Begins" sketch, the titular character lets out a Big "NEIN!" when his father chokes to death on candy after watching a movie.
  • Jackie Chan Adventures:
    • Shendu yells this after ending up possessing Valmont, instead of Jackie, which was what he intended. Almost all of the Demon Sorcerers scream this when they are banished back to the Netherworld through their portals. When they banish the Earth Demon, Jade hangs a lantern on it: "Here comes my favourite part. "NOOO!""
    • Uncle is also fond of the Chinese version "Iyaaaa!" — usually just before smacking Jackie around the head for doing something stupid.
  • Parodied throughout the Drawn Together episode "Terms of Endearment", in which Captain Hero screams "Nnnooooooo!!" at least 7 or 8 times. At one point (as the camera pulls back... and back... and then back some more, to reveal just how big a problem he's facing) Hero screams the Big No three times in a row, with dramatic pauses in between.
  • Often used by SWAT Kats villains such as Dark Kat and The Pastmaster when the heroes defeat them.
  • Done straight on a fairly regular basis in ReBoot. Bob, being shot into the Web at the end of season two, Enzo, after learning about Bob's fate, Dot in "Game Over" when it appeared that Enzo had been nullified, and said twice by Megabyte in two episodes toward the end. This YTMND does a rather good job of pointing out just how often this trope is played.
    • Lampshaded in the musical recap at the end of the third season:
      Singer: But Megabyte betrayed Bob and
      He threw him deep inside the pit.
      The pit was closed,
      and Bob was hosed,
      and all that he could say was-
      Actor Bob: Noooo!
  • The X-Men animated series:
    • A wonderful Big No can be found in episode 4 of season 2, "One Man's Worth part 1". The first occurrence is when Bishop shouts it as Professor X is assassinated in the '50s before he can found the X-Men, followed quickly by an epic Big No from Prof. X when he vanishes from the present. The episode ends with a repeat of the opening scene — but this time, it's in slow motion for the last few lines of dialogue, including Bishop's Big No. Behold.
    • Also there's a Big "NO!" from Apocalypse at the end of the four-part "Beyond Good and Evil".
    • As well as one from Wolverine in "Out of the Past: Part 2" when Yuriko was touched by the M'Kraan Spirit Drinker.
    • In addition, there's one from Cyclops in "Reunion, Part 1" when Sinister and his gang kidnaps Jean.
  • Another Big No scene sadly fails in X-Men: Evolution, when Nightcrawler reacts too slow to stop an angry Rogue from pushing Mystique's petrified body off a cliff and has to see it shatter into a thousand shards right in front of him, shortly after finding out that Mystique was his mother. Again, the scene would have been so much better without the slow-motion yell. When recapping that episode in the introductions to later ones, they put the "NOOOO" back at normal speed. It's much more effective.
  • Transformers:
    • Optimus Primal gets quite a few in Beast Wars, most notably in the cliffhanger of the first season finale, and when the Axalon is destroyed in season 3.
      • Inverted with Megatron, as he usually says "Yesssssssssssssss."
      • Last episode of Beast Machines. Megatron's final word? "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
    • And in Armada, Optimus Prime gets one of these when Smokescreen dies.
      • Megatron later gets one when Starscream of all people is killed by Unicron.
    • Parodied in the "Bee in the City" script reading of Transformers Animated, with David Kaye using his Beast Wars Megatron voice (to enthusiastic approval from the crowd). Upon his defeat, he vows to return, ending with a big "YEEESSS!"
    • In Animated, the Autobots discuss having to leave, and Bulkhead wonders how Sari (human sidekick) will take it. Bumblebee says she's a big girl and can handle it. Cut to Sari screaming NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! at the top of her lungs.
    • Not to mention the episode "Nature Calling" when Prowl smashes Bumblebee's only battery, rendering him unable to see movies in the middle of nature. His "NOOOO!" was truly epic.
    • Transformers: Prime:
      • Knock Out does one when Starscream punishes him (by scratching his precious finish) in "Speed Metal".
      • Miko does one when Bulkhead almost gets beheaded in "I.M.I.".
      • Arcee yells out a "No!" when a replication of Unicron was about to kill Optimus.
      • Megatron gets a magnificent one during "Orion Pax Part 3" when Jack restores Optimus's memories and the Autobots escape.
      • In the Grand Finale, Optimus' reaction to Bumblebee's apparent death is half this, half an inarticulate scream of rage.
    • Transformers: Rescue Bots:
      • The episode "The Riders of Midwinter" has Dani scream "No" after hearing that the canister containing everyone's Midwinter Morning presents has sunk to the bottom of the ocean.
      • At the end of "Cody's 11", Madeline Pynch yells a Big No after learning that her getaway car is actually Quickshadow and that Quickshadow is going to deliver her to jail.
    • Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2015): "Defrosted" has Fixit scream "No" after the handheld video game he was engrossed in gets shattered by the Bee Team returning from their latest mission.
  • In The Spectacular Spider-Man, the Sandman gets one of these after seeing the results of his Transformation Trauma into a living sand being.
  • Littlefoot gets one of these in The Land Before Time IX: Journey to Big Water, as he watches Mo lead the swimming sharptooth away.
  • Used in American Dad! by either Stan, Francine or Hayley when they believe Steve and Roger were killed by a lightning-struck treehouse. Rather effective due to how strangled and broken it sounded. Steve also gets a particularly good one.
    • Stan has had a couple of these.
  • Avatar: The Last Airbender
    • There's a slow-motion one from Zuko in the Grand Finale when Taking the Bullet for Katara. Cue "must run in the family" jokes...
    • It really does; Iroh has a (much less dramatic) one when he sees June get hit with her Shirshu's paralyzing tongue.
    • Sokka has one in "The Desert", right before Aang creates a giant mushroom cloud.
    • Sokka also lets out one in "The Cave of Two Lovers", when he finds he's trapped in a cave with the nomads.
    • Parodied in the Who Would Want to Watch Us?? episode when Actress Aang lets out a nice 9 second "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" as she "dies".
    • Katara has one in the Puppetmaster when Hama nearly forces Sokka and Aang to kill each other using Bloodbending.
  • The Legend of Korra (Sequel Series of Avatar: The Last Airbender):
    • Unavaatu pulls out one while being spirit bent and destroyed by Korra.
    • Korra also has one of these in the Book 1 episode "Endgame" when she sees that Mako is about to have his firebending removed by Amon. Even though she has already had her own powers removed, her desperation to save Mako leads to her finally unlocking airbending.
  • Big City Greens uses this a lot.

    • Gramma in "Blue Tater" when Cricket touches a blue potato and believes he'll get bad luck from it.
    • Bill in "Swimming Fool" when a family wants to get in the hot dog and see him naked. Then by Cricket in the same episode at the end of his Daydream Surprise when he detaches in the water.
    • Done musically by a hot dog vendor in "Gramma's License".
    • Even the flashbacks are prone to this. In "Family Legacy", Young Gramma screams it as her father is about to sell the farm. In "Greens' Acres", Young Bill screams it when Gramma thinks of selling the farm to Quisling.
    • By the Cyber Knight leader in "Cyberbullies" when her drone is destroyed.

  • Danny Phantom
    • When Danny's family and friends (and teacher) are about to be blown up to their doom in an alternate timeline, Danny cries one out, complete with slow motion movement.
    • Vlad later gets one in another episode when his perfect clone is destroyed by Danny and his Opposite-Sex Clone. For just one word, it's brilliantly acted.
  • In one episode of the 2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, Baxter Stockman lets out a big "WHY?" after Bishop brought him back from the brink of death (as a result of the events in "Insane in the Membrane"), which robbed him of finally resting in peace after everything he lived through in the series. It...comes across a bit narm-y.
  • Kim Possible:
    • In "Stop Team Go", after using hundreds of mooks to destroy the gurken jar, Dr. Drakken puts the jar under a big laser beam, and he fires it. The result was a big crater on the floor, and the jar was unharmed. Cue Big No.

    • Ron has a couple throughout the series (including a truly epic one in "A Very Possible Christmas" (Season 2, episode 16).
  • Being a Star Wars animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars has instances of the use of the Big "NO!" trope:

    • ARC Trooper CT 27-5555 "Fives" screams one when Hardcase tells him that he's going to sacrifice himself to destroy a Separatist Supply Ship after the shields to the reactor core were raised.
    • Obi-Wan does it a couple of times: first, a quick one when Zygerrian Prison Warden Keeper Arguss activates the control panels to the slaves' quarters to drop them all into the pit of doom below. The second time is right before Savage Opress gives Adi Galia the finishing stab with his lightsaber after impaling her with his horns.
  • The Powerpuff Girls

  • Played for laughs in Metalocalypse, where Big Nos are Nathan's catchphrase, and he lets them out quite regularly. They are usually accompanied by the camera flying down Nathan's throat. One example comes when Nathan lets out a NOOOOOOOOOO! upon Nick Ibsen revealing Dethklok's parents.
    Nick Ibsen: You are all going to be reunited with your families.
    (a panel opens up, revealing the families of each of the five band members)
    Nathan Explosion: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! You're going to pay for this!
    Nick Ibsen: Pay for what? Journalistic integrity?
    • The bit on flying down the throat comes from the episode "Murdering Outside the Box". When Nathan learns that someone is embezzling from the band, he suddenly goes into the Big No sequence, and from the "down the throat" bit the show goes into the opening.
    • It also happens when Nathan, after having death-growled the entire works of Shakespeare to sell as an audiobook, learns that an extremely-inebriated Pickles "like...TOTALLY forgot to hit record, man." The strain of recording the growled version of "Hamlet" having taken its toll on Nathan's larynx, the Big "NO!" was rasped rather than screamed.
    • It's hard to identify due to the polyphony of the crowd chanting, Nathan screaming, and Skwisgaar panicking, but this is what Pickles is yelling at the end of the Depths Of Humanity in The Doomstar Requiem.
  • The Buzz Lightyear of Star Command episode "Plasma Monster" has Booster react this way when Plasma Boy's girlfriend tells him they can still be Just Friends.
  • Ace Lightning: The characters in this mixed media show are based on superhero stereotypes, so this was going to show up sooner or later — except that it's not one of the CGI characters that do it — it's a human, in the last episode, when he thinks Ace has been shot.
  • In Street Fighter, Guile gives one when Cammy defected to Shadaloo and gives Bison a big kiss. Note the Soundtrack Dissonance.

    • During "The Strongest Woman in the World," a young Chun Li yells this in a flashback as she witnesses M. Bison killing Chun Li's father.

  • In the Freakazoid! episode "House of Freakazoid", Freakazoid is pressured to pursue a villainess through a sewer, but repeatedly refuses because he hates the smell of poo gas.

    • Played straight in the The Fairly Odd Parents Shadow Showdown video game; Timmy shouts it after his TV breaks in the introduction, and again upon seeing he's missed the Crash Nebula season finale at the end.
    • And parodied in "Pixies Inc", where, after being foiled, the Pixies let out a big no—with no emotion.
    • Cosmo and Jorgen in "Cosmo Rules", when they learned they're cousins. Their Big "NO!" lasted nearly 24 hours as the scene showing the sun setting and rising again suggested and then Jorgen fainted and Cosmo added ..."WAY!" Cosmo was enjoying the idea and even planned cousingly activities for him and Jorgen. Albeit not all of them were fit for male cousins.
    • Crocker in "Formula for Disaster" at the end when he is trapped on a bus headed to Cincinnati he yells "NOOOOO! Not Cincinnati!" A sign saying "Welcome to Cincinatti! Crocker free since 1983" may have something to do with it.
    • Chester also did this in "The Boy Who Would Be Queen:" when A.J. fell in love with Timmy's girl form "Timantha."
    • On the Oh Yeah! Cartoons short "The Temp", Jeff gives off one as he's dragged back to the North Pole, with his fellow elves telling him to "Be one of us!"

    • In "Cat Orgy", when Skyler discovers his trashed guitar.

      Mormon: We were just about to do a play about how much stealing hurts you deep inside. Come join us. (the Mormons lift Saddam over their heads and carry him off)
      Saddam: No! NOOOOOO!
    • "Something You Can Do With Your Finger" parodies the Star Trek: First Contact example above, when Randy prevents Stan from being in his boy band. Incidentally, they actually use the sound clip of Picard's breakdown from the movie for that scene.
      Stan: Why can't I be in a boy band?
      Randy: (firmly) Because I Said So.
      Stan: Cartman said we're going to perform at the mall at three o'clock! My friends are gonna be pissed off at me!
      Randy: (still pretty controlled) Let them be pissed off.
      Stan: Dad, I don't understand. Just let me do this one thing and then I'll...

    • In the episode "I See London, I See France", Rocko and Heffer are on a bus tour of Paris with a bus driver who is determined to keep his passengers on the bus at all costs, so much so that he chases them around the city after they escape. By the time the two board a plane home, the bus driver delivers an epic BIG NO as the two fly off into the sunset.

Al lets it out when he asks Chris if the prize money is safe, only to find out it was burned in the volcano. It's hilarious because it parodies the cheesiest moments in Star Wars history.

Near the end, the duckling realizes that Tom intends to eat him and prepares to take a long walk off a soup spoon into a bubbling pot, "If my nice mommy wants a duck dinner..." Tom utters a Big No as he catches the duckling. A "No!" made all the more impressive by the fact that Tom and Jerry usually don't have speaking voices...

  • The Sheep in the Big City episode "My, How Ewe Have Changed" has General Specific capturing Sheep when he returns to the farm for a barbecue reunion with his old friends.

  • In Babar, Babar pulls one when he discovers his mother's dead body.
  • In the Oh Yeah! Cartoons short "Super Santa: Vegetation", the villain Dr. Carmine Miranda yells "No" after his mutant vegetable minions are turned back into normal vegetables.
  • Nature Cat
    • The titular character himself does this various times throughout the series, particularly in the episode "Slime Time" when he finds his yarn ball gone and yells out, "NOOOOO!", complete with a Skyward Scream.
    • Ditto for Hal, especially in the special, "Ocean Commotion" after Daisy told him that there is no way the ocean's current cannot stop moving as Hal's chew-toy Mr. Chewinsky floats away. And again near the beginning of "Moth Frolic-Fest" after he discovers that Nature Cat, Squeeks, and Daisy frolicked with butterflies for the whole day without him, much to his dismay.
  • Jonny Quest: The Real Adventures has a really cringeworthy one with the closeup of the really primitive "Quest World" CGI face. One look may give you nightmares:
  • 2 Stupid Dogs: The episode "Door Jam" ends with Little Dog repeatedly screaming "No" when he and Big Dog are trapped inside the Y-Mart while the can they spent the episode trying to get by entering the Y-Mart is on the other side of the door. It zooms to outside the Y-Mart's parking lot, the whole city, and then the world as he keeps screaming "No!"
  • Star Trek: Lower Decks:
    • In "Moist Vessel", Ensign Tendi screams "NOOOOOOOOOO!!!" when Lieutenant O'Connor is dying from being crushed by a large rock.
    • In the flashback of "Cupid's Errant Arrow", Ensign Mariner shouts "NOOO!!!" when her friend Angie is attacked by a Harvongian shape-changer.
  • Used as the last lines of the Rocket Power Halloween Episode by the rocket gang when Ray announces to Violet that they'll only get a piece of candy once per visit to trick or treat, followed by a howling wolf.
