Cartoons are known for their comedic elements, and tickling can be a source of humor. The exaggerated reactions and physical comedy associated with tickling can create funny situations and entertain the audience, especially younger viewers. The playful and lighthearted nature of tickling lends itself well to the comedic tone of cartoons. Tickling scenes provide an opportunity for animators to showcase exaggerated movements, facial expressions, and reactions. The squirming, flailing, and laughter resulting from tickling can be visually amusing and add to the comedic effect of the cartoon.

On this page we are going to summarize the main tickling scenes found in western cartoons (not anime). We will link to the respective articles, if any, to elaborate on their content. It’s a work in progress, visit this page periodically for new update.

Mysticons (S2X10)

Laughing excessively can overstimulate the tear ducts, causing tears to flow. The physical act of laughing, particularly when it involves intense or prolonged bouts of laughter, can stimulate the lacrimal glands, which produce tears. This can result in tears streaming down our faces, even though we may not be feeling sad or upset.

In “Mysticons”, Emerals is tickle to tear (literally).
