Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'': While Jimmy's knowledge is obviously far beyond the point at which anything learned in a 5th grade class should be of much use, his "brain blasts" will often arise from an off-the-cuff statement or factoid from the beginning of the episode that allows him to complete his ideas.

* In ''Disney/WreckItRalph'', VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog speaks about how dying outside your own game will kill you permanently. [[spoiler:Ralph was about to sacrifice himself like this to save everyone, but was saved at the last minute...Turbo on the other hand.]]

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Mixels}}'' episode "Every Knight has its Day" has Camillot learning how decisiveness is key when it comes to the difference between forming a [[FusionDance Mix]] or a [[BalefulPolymorph Murp]], and his decisiveness ends up saving the day when he is the first one to take action during a Mixeloptor rampage at the zoo during a field trip.

* Used twice in ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'':
** The first time was in the episode "[[ValentinesDayEpisodes Dark Cupid]]", which started with the heroes' English teacher telling the class about how kissing is used to break spells in fairy tales. Ladybug later applies this method when her partner is affected by the villain's HatePlague.
** The second time was in "Princess Fragrance", which has the science teacher give a lecture on the flammability of perfume. Later, Ladybug has to get rid of a huge cloud of the stuff-and she just happens to be near a boat loaded with fireworks...

* In ''Literature/TheMagicSchoolBus'', usually the dangerous situation is the lecture, or an extension of it, and the resolution always conveniently requires them to recap everything they've learned that day. Arguably justified as intentional on Ms. Frizzle's part as an aspect of her teaching style.

** In a later episode, ExecutiveMeddling forced them to have a lecture about good nutrition and the five food groups. Ron falls into a vat of the Titan Formula and becomes a junk-food-eating-monster. Luckily Kim and her brothers know the cure for that! And to drive home the fact that they had to make this episode, Ron gives a AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle by warning kids [[SpoofAesop not to fall into vats of experimental super growth formula.]]

* Normally subverted in ''MightyMax'' whenever Max comes up with a clever plan to save the day. It's usually not until ''after'' the villain is defeated that Max gives the Chekhov's Lecture, either to the other characters or directly to the audience in the {{Edutainment}} sections at the end of each episode.

** Another episode has Bart rush out of a class on Roman numerals to steal the town's lemon tree back from Shelbyville. Later on in the same episode he ends up in a room with a choice of doors labelled I-X and a piece of paper that claims that the seventh door is the exit and all the others contain man eating tigers. In a subversion, he doesn't even remember the class but makes the right choice anyway thanks to his knowledge of ''Franchise/{{Rocky}}'' films. And in case you're wondering, the film in question Bart comes up with? [[spoiler: ''[[NumberedSequels Rocky VII:]][[OddlyNamedSequel Adrian's Revenge]]''.]]
** While needing to prevent a meltdown, Homer tried to remember what he learned about it. It turns out Hpmer wasn't paying attention to the lessons because he was focused on trying to solve a rubix cube. Back in presente time, Homer [[NeverMyFault blamed the still unsolved cube]].

* In the ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' episode "[[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderBitterWork Bitter Work]]," Iroh teaches Zuko all about the principles of [[ShockAndAwe lightning bending.]] These same principles are later applied when [[spoiler:Zuko deflects Ozai's lightning during his HeelFaceTurn, and later in the GrandFinale when Aang does the exact same thing. Incidentally, it was Zuko himself who taught this technique to Aang, figuring that one day it would come back to save his skin.]] Unlike most other examples, this one is very justified: [[spoiler:Azula]] was hunting Zuko and Iroh at the time, and [[spoiler:she]] is a famous lightning user. Iroh was merely teaching Zuko how to beat a specific, very strong opponent.
* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'': Spongebob's boating class goes on a field trip to a famous boat, where Spongebob annoys everyone (Mrs. Puff in particular) by rattling off useless trivia. The boat then appears to have activated and is barreling towards town, so Spongebob is called on to save the town. [[spoiler: Nope, the boat was being hauled by a smaller tug, and Spongebob's contribution to the whole mess was 1) start the disaster in the first place, and 2) crash the boat into a building.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'' episode ''"Spike"'' has Lilo to attend a family trivia contest. To get her family of aliens prepared for the questions about Earth's culture, she takes them for a sort of an educational walk around, in which they stop at a shop where Pleakley reads a T-shirt's label: ''"Wash with light colors only"''. During the contest, a question is given specifically for Aunt Pleakley: ''"True or false: Cotton t-shirts should be washed with light colors only."'' Pleakley feels smart for being able to answer correctly.
