* ''Series/{{Cheers}}'': In "What is Cliff Clavin?", [[GameShowAppearance Cliff goes on]] ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'', but despite a runaway lead of $22,000 (more than both his opponents ''combined''), he loses when he wagers everything in Final Jeopardy and gets it incorrect. Norm, who accompanied Cliff along with Woody to the taping, [[GenreSavvy foresaw this]]. Since this episode, Creator/AlexTrebek tends to warn players not to [[PersonAsVerb "pull a Clavin"]] (endanger a definite win) in FJ.

** One cartoon was a spoof of the 1950s drama ''The Millionaire,'' and had Popeye as the mysterious benefactor who gives out $1 million cashiers' checks to Olive, Wimpy, Swee' Pea and even Brutus. He goes out in his sailor suit to see how they had been spending the money (Wimpy buys a cattle farm but can't summon the heart to grind up an innocent cow into hamburger; Swee' Pea buys the mother of all-day suckers; and Olive is getting the mother of all makeovers). Brutus uses his millions to buy up and bury all the spinach farms in the world, leaving Popeye with no spinach--except the green wad Brutus shoves in his mouth (we all know what happens next). At the end, Popeye says he's seen what money did to his friends so he gave his last million to the sailor's relief fund.
** Another had Wimpy the heir to a fortune. He is to be a referee at a prize fight in which Popeye is a participant. Wimpy bets every dollar he has on the opponent, and during the fight, his butler KOs Popeye out cold. Wimpy is counting Popeye out but, busrting into tears, he doesn't have the heart to double-cross his pal. He gives Popeye some spinach, Popeye knocks out his opponent, and Wimpy says goodbye to his money.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}}'' has the Ghost With The Most inheriting a healthy sum of money on the condition that he doesn't "juice" anybody (play a prank). He turns the other cheek when other denizens insult him, but when they insult Lydia...well, B.J. may kiss his money goodbye but it's for a principle he stands up for.

* The ''TomAndJerry'' cartoon "Million Dollar Cat" has Tom inheriting $1 million under the provision that he harm no animals--even a mouse. This gives Jerry the chance to yank Tom's chain throughout the cartoon until the conclusion when Tom's camel complains of a broken back--he rips up the will and sets about thrashing Jerry, stopping long enough to say this to us (in Bill Hanna's voice):
-->'''Tom:''' Gee. I'm t'rowin' away a million dollars. '''''BUT I'M HAPPY!!'''''
