- Buddy the Elf is perhaps the ultimate example. He's basically a big hearted, cheery, ever optimistic child in a grown man's body.
- George from Faeries (1999) is eternally energetic, optimistic and chipper...much to his sister's extreme annoyance.

- Oh from Home is the most happy-go-lucky and optimistic of the Boov, as well as very energetic.
