* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'': In "A Drain In the Economy", Scrooge's money washes into the (storm) sewer, explicitly referred to as a "storm drain" by Big Time Beagle. Huey, Dewey and Louie pursue it through the storm sewer system. The drain ends up going into the Duckburg reservoir and directly into the city water supply.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' really played with this one in a few episodes. New New York's sewers are actually the city of New York, and home to a community of mutants, who mention off-hand that they have a sub-sewer system (home to a community of sub-mutants, according to sub-urban legend). It helps that New New York's sewers connect with the subterranean ruins of old New York. Reality intrudes, however, when the Planet Express crew gets lost down there and Fry says that the only way out is through... a tube that's at most only a few inches wide ("Don't worry, it gets wider after about a mile").
