An episode of ''Series/TheOfficeUS'' also featured the book. Dwight Schrute attempts to use it to entertain the children of his coworkers on Bring Your Daughter To Work Day, only for Michael to quickly intervene due the disturbing nature of the stories, telling Dwight, ''"The kids don't want to hear some weirdo book that your Nazi war criminal grandmother gave you."''

''[[http://www.gutenberg.org/files/12116/12116-h/12116-h.htm Der Struwwelpeter]]'' (Shaggy-Peter or ''Shockheaded Peter''), written and illustrated by Heinrich Hoffmann, is an 1845 German children's book filled with cautionary tales. These cautionary tales are more grim than others, however -- they often end in death or dismemberment for the child. They are a source of plenty of NightmareFuel, too.

An episode of''VanDerValk'', a long-running British crime drama, features a SerialKiller who takes revenge on his victims by subjecting them to the same fates as in the stories. Interestingly enough, the "Johnny Head-in-Air" victim, although intended to drown, does in fact live.
