* In the ''BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "Batgirl Returns," the eponymous Batgirl agrees to help Catwoman find out who framed her for the theft of the Jade Cat statue, on the condition that she turn herself in to the police if she gets caught in a double-cross. Sure enough, when Catwoman tries to kill the real thief and take the statue for herself, Batgirl makes sure she surrenders. The cops make it to the end of the block before Catwoman slips out of her handcuffs, kicks them out of the car, and steals it.
--> I said I'd let them take me… but I didn't say how far!

*** Similarly, in "Scary Godparents", fairies can be out on the street on Halloween night without being discovered because the kids are all in costumes trick-or-treating and will simply assume the fairies are costumed kids as well.

*** Similarly, in "Scary Godparents", fairies can be out on the street on Halloween night without being discovered because the kids are all in costumes trick-or-treating and will simply assume the fairies are costumed kids as well. In general, this is hardly a problem, considering the general populace is dismissive of the existence of fairies.
*** Oddly enough, fairies don't have to worry about being seen non-human, non-magical races.

* The ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' BaseballEpisode "Gone Batty" features a rather unfair matchup between a team of big, muscular bullies called the Greenvile Goons, and a team of much smaller, weaker guys called the Sweetwater Shnooks. After the Goons gain an overwhelming lead of 157 to nothing, the Shnooks decide to have their mascot, a baby elephant named Bobo, act as relief pitcher. The Goons complain to the umpire, but he angrily shouts at them, "There's nothing in the rule book that says an elephant can't pitch!" and tells them to play ball.

(And that's ''very'' bad news for the Goons, because after getting over an initial bout of stage fright, Bobo is seriously able to turn the game around.)
