*** Part of the reason for the angry reaction to the pro-life aesop is that the episode is not exactly subtle when it continually refers to the creature as a 'baby'. The episode then tries to pass itself off as pro-choice by giving all the female characters the choice to kill the creature while the (all-knowing) male character takes off with a casual "It's not ''my'' planet." Clara makes the choice not to kill, and [[BabiesMakeEverythingBetter everything turns out okay]], with all the natural disasters and deaths caused by the creature being forgotten about.

* The New Zealand TV soap ''ShortlandStreet'' does this ''all the time''. The 1998 episode in which Jenny Harrison appeared on a television show to rant about the poor state of the New Zealand health service is probably the most anvilicious scene of Shortland Street in its 16-year history.

* The US version of ''QueerAsFolk'' was a tutorial on how to be an "acceptable" gay person in the US, running along the lines of: get married in Canada, [[NoBisexuals don't be bi]], don't be angry at homophobes, remember that God loves you after all, adopt children and be nice to your mother.

* The final scene of the final episode of ''Series/BattlestarGalactica2003'' is a ridiculously anvilicious message about the dangers of overdeveloping modern robotics. Or maybe "Treat your creations with respect", or "do not enslave artificial lifeforms".

* ''MacGyver'' had several of these episodes. Mostly about the environment.

* ''TylerPerry's'' ''Meet The Browns'' is chock-full of them: shoplifting, carrying a gun to school, growing marijuana, birth control, drinking, molestation, teen pregnancy, credit card over-reliance, and tons of others. At some point, they made it too obvious to miss. "Meet the Interrogation" touched up on how lotto addictions bleed you dry. "Meet The Christmas Spirit" went as far as to play up the Christmas spirit cliche by having an angel befriend Joaquin. But the real hum-dinger was "Meet the Big Payoff," sugarcoating that texting while driving will get you killed, which was basically a thinly-veiled obligatory public service announcement.

* [[Creator/{{NBC}} Green Is Universal]], a concept so heavy-handed and self-righteous that it couldn't be contained on just one network. Indeed, this bi-yearly theme appears on every cable and broadcast channel owned by NBC. NBC in turn is owned by General Electric, a polluter so massive and frightening that even CaptainPlanet would fear to confront it. [[{{Hypocrisy}} The irony]] is so thick and juicy that you could cut it with a steak knife.

* ''FullHouse'' invariably ended in someone learning [[AnAesop a lesson]]. Usually 'it's okay to pick on Kimmy Gibbler'.
** ''FamilyMatters'' was just as bad, especially during its first six or so seasons. With the episodes "Like A Virgin" and "The Gun" being the most {{Egregious}} examples.

* ''BoyMeetsWorld'' had many anvilicious [[AnAesop aesops]], particularly of the CantGetAwayWithNuthin variety. Perhaps it was the force of all those anvils that led the main character to be so unhinged in the final seasons.
