* In the infamous ''Series/TwilightZone1959'' episode'' "A Nice Place To Visit", this trope is actually [[IronicHell used as a punishment]].

* Al Bundy's hell in the ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' episode ''Damn Bundys'' shows the devil (play by Robert Englund) punish him by giving him only Weenie Tots (his favorite food) to eat because it'll make him go to the bathroom for long periods of time (the reason ''why'' is his favorite food) and not allowing him to see his family ever again, so from his perspective, is heaven.

* In {{GWAR}}'s song ''Go To Hell'', the band go to Hell "Because we need a vacation" (Of course they have a twisted definition of fun and think it sounds fun because they've heard that it has "a sea of urine where rats eat your face")
* AliceCooper's "Wish You Were Here" (from the 1976 album ''Alice Cooper Goes to Hell'') comes very close to being the TropeNamer with its "Having a wonderful time, my dear - wish you were here." Ultimately a subversion, as the rest of the album makes clear that the song is ironic.

* The DCU Hell isn't supposed to be like this, but when SelfDemonstrating/{{Lobo}} got sent there, he turned it into one by throwing wild parties, until he finally got kicked out. (Naturally, Heaven didn't want him either, making him pretty much immortal since then.)

* {{Invoked}} in the 1920's short film ''The Devil's Cabaret''. TheDevil is concerned about the fact that there are not enough people going to hell, so he puts on a show with singing and dancing to show people that hell can be fun and entice more people to go there.

* In ''TheOnion'', [[http://www.theonion.com/articles/hell-now-a-thriving-epicenter-of-gay-culture,33928/ Hell is apparently a "thriving epicenter" of gay culture]]. Aside from little quirks (like six-headed go-go dancers), it's described as a decent place.

* Although ''BillAndTedsBogusJourney'' mostly features [[IronicHell Ironic Hells]] tailored to the characters, a deleted scene would have added some aspects of this; before catching Satan's attention, the duo would have been forced by a demon to break rocks with hammers. Bill discovers he actually really enjoys doing so.

* Hell starts out as a spectacularly horrible aversion in ''TheSalvationWar'', but once the human invasion force arrives things improve noticeably, [[spoiler: with Julius Caeser recreating the Roman Empire. They even find oil and tons of minerals in hell]].

* Toyed with in the first series of ''BlackAdder''. After being appointed Archbishop of Canterbury, Edmund is charged with ensuring a nobleman leaves his lands to the crown instead of the church. He does this by explaining that Heaven is for people who like praising God and watering pot plants, while Hell is for pillage, adultery, and so on. Judging from the man's reaction just before dying, this is probably not true.
