* Possibly an UrExample: In 1939, some Nazi leaders denounced the popular music-hall song [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lambeth_Walk "The Lambeth Walk"]] as "Jewish mischief and animalistic hopping." So Charles Ridley of the British Ministry of Information took some footage of Nazi troops from ''Film/TriumphOfTheWill'' and [[OlderThanTheyThink remixed it to make it look like they were dancing]] to (you guessed it) the Lambeth Walk. Comics historian Creator/MarkEvanier remarks, "It is said the film was shown for Joseph Goebbels and he exploded and ran screaming from the room in anger. If so, that alone was reason enough to make it." You can watch it on his blog [[http://www.newsfromme.com/2011/11/12/todays-video-link-561/ here]].

* A lot of liberal comedians [[InvokedTrope have tried to do this]] to {{Donald Trump}}, [[SubvertedTrope but it only works on people who already thought he was an idiot (usually self-righteous liberals)]]. Everybody else either just laughs at the jokes then contuines to support Trump/not care that he's President, defends him from it or just doesn't listen to it. [[http://www.newsweek.com/donald-trump-assassination-johnny-depp-kathy-griffin-snoop-dogg-628503 Though recently the "jokes" have been getting a bit extreme]], so much so, [[DudeNotFunny that even Trump-hating liberals are getting appalled]].

* ''Literature/ErIstWiederDa'' ("Look Who's Back") is a comedic novel in which the Führer himself ends up in present day Germany, and becomes a media sensation. At least, that's the general plot. The book opens with Hitler blithely wondering why Germany isn't an uninhabitable wasteland as per his SaltTheEarth instructions shortly before his actual death. Initially, Hitler's naivety about the modern world is portrayed as amusing, and possibly even endearing, but once he gets a grasp on modern media such as the Internet, he quickly adapts to and even starts to exploit these inventions to great and chilling effect, managing to gradually worm his way into popularity with the ills of intentions. It should be noted though that this portrayal of Hitler aims not to make yet another caricature (unlike countless others) but to portray him as a people person, someone funny but trustworthy, to explain how he got so far in RealLife. In a way, this is much more terrifying than the bumbling idiot or screaming madman portrayals typically seen.

** 1943's ''Scrap Happy Daffy'' has Hitler losing his shit after reading about Daffy's scrap pile ("?!#@#@!! Non-Aryan Duck!"). He sends a goat to destroy it and it looks as if the Nazis won until Daffy gets some divine intervention.
** Hitler, Hirohito and Stalin appear in very bizarre caricatures in the nightmare scenes from 1943's ''Tin Pan Alley Cats."
