Moe / Western Animation

Go To

  • Futurama.
    • Come on...if you were Leela, you know you'd date Fry in a second. None of that pussyfooting around. It's all his heart, and the fact that he is so very, very, very lonely, being the oldest human in the world by a very long shot. Plus, he's nice to people who don't give a rat's ass about him, for no good reason at all. What's there not to like? Intelligence? Overrated! In fact, he's most adorable in his good-hearted loopiness.
    • Leela. How can you not hear orphanage stories and not want to give her a hug? One eye or two, who cares?
    • Kif. With the big head, large eyes, small nose, girlish voice and the borderline Woobieness, he's downright adorable!
  • OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes: KO is a walking catalogue of the trope, being a cheerful, weird little badass.
  • The Simpsons:
    • Maggie, the adorable Cute Mute baby who is always sucking on her pacifier (though she has a dark side).
    • Lisa, being a smart, caring, and idealistic Adorably Precocious Child.
    • Ralph, one of Lisa's classmates, qualifies due to his innocence and being a Cloudcuckoolander.
    • Ironically the character named Moe definitely averts this trope.
  • Kim Possible: Shego turns Moe when she gets hit by an attitude ray, which changes her personality to the opposite of her current one. That lady on the Dark Action Girl page? That's her.Seriously.
  • Sanjay and Craig:
    • The former is the show's most sensitive, sweet and gentle of the cast and the latter is a cuddly snake with attitude and a hidden soft side; they're also a couple of Cute Bruisers when the plot calls for it.
    • Megan and Sam are also pretty adorable.
  • Harvey Beaks: All of the kids on this series (except Princess) qualify in some way or another, but the biggest examples have to be Harvey, Fee and Foo, Claire, and Piri Piri
  • School For Vampires: Klot. Don't look at him - let alone talk to him - for long, or you'll find yourself offering him your blood voluntarily.
  • ChalkZone has a reputation for being this in comparison to its fellow Nicktoons, but the central trio of Rudy, Penny, and Snap exemplify this better than anything else in the series.
  • The Boondocks: Jasmine, the adorably precocious, saucer eyed, idealistic daughter of Tom.
  • Phineas and Ferb:
    • Candace can be this to the boys who love her crazy awesome Genki Girl attitude.
    • Phineas is such an adorably Nice Guy.
    • Isabella could weaponize her cuteness if she so wanted to. In-universe too, as Phineas has to recalibrate his cute detector so it doesn't mistake her for Meap.
  • Doug: Doug. He's so adorably sweet!
  • Recess:
    • Miss Grotke is a rare over 18 example of the trope. Personality speaking, she's like a misplaced Disney Princess. Sadly, a lot of her moe-ness is taken out of most dubs, where her cute, high-pitched voice is usually replaced with a lower, more boring one.
    • The main six when they were in kindergarten were just adorable as well.
    • Gus is one of the cutest members of the main six.
  • South Park:
    • When Kenny becomes "Princess Kenny", he becomes a direct parody of anime characters of this type, specifically young girls.
    • Butters is a sweet, naive Cheerful Child and by far the most innocent character on the show.
    • Tweek is an adorkable Nervous Wreck.
    • Kyle is so kind with girls he dates and willingly be a good brother to Ike when he in trouble.
    • Stan has a heart when he near animals especially with his dog Sparky.
    • Kenny's little sister Karen. She's got adorable Girlish Pigtails and is a bit sensitive due to her terrible home life, and is her older brother Kenny's Morality Pet.
  • Gravity Falls:
    • Mabel Pines.
    • Dipper, Mabel's utterly Adorkable twin brother. Try not to "d'awww" at the two of them in elementary.
    • Mabel's friend Candy also fits this, without a doubt.
    • Lil' Gideon intentionally invokes this.
    • .GIFfany, despite the fact that, or perhaps because, she is so crazy.
    • Pacifica has some surprisingly adorable moments in Northwest Mansion Mystery.
  • Timothy Goes to School: Yoko, Lilly, and Juanita are all very kind and nice around the other students and among the cutest characters in the series.
  • Ruby Gloom: The title character is the epitome of Perky Goth and her sunny personality is just so darling. Heck, pretty much everyone qualifies, actually; they're all monsters and creepy creatures, but they're the sweetest, friendliest, and most adorkable bunch of ghouls you could ever find.
  • Star vs. the Forces of Evil: Star Butterfly and Marco Diaz. Interestingly, the former is a Cuddle Bug and they tend to give each other hugs quite a bit.
    Star: Hugs!
  • Muppet Babies: Baby Beaker. Good golly! While all the baby versions of the Muppets are pretty adorable, between Baby Beaker's over-sized pajamas, mop-top hair, and higher-pitched meeping, he is about the cutest and most huggable out of all of them.

How well does it match the trope?
