* The GDR DEFA short "Guten Tag, Herr H" is a propaganda film (and a good one in that regard - none of the BRD laws are quoted untrue) with the premise that Hitler would came back 1970 after the general time lapse of Nazi crimes. It's a bit jarring that Hitler is shown rather just as a harmless bumbling moron.

* ''Literature/ErIstWiederDa'' ("Look Who's Back"), based upon the comedic novel listed below, in which the Führer himself ends up in present day Germany, and becomes a media sensation. An absolute riot. That is, before the MoodWhiplash kicks in and it's shown how a man as savvy and driven as Hitler could do some terribly catastrophic harm to a fragile and fearful modern-day Germany.

* Another UrExample is Ludwik Sempoliński's song "Ten Wąsik, Ach, Ten Wąsik" (That Mustache, Oh, That Mustache), that premiered in a Polish cabaret in May 1939. The lyrics mock Hitler as someone who stole Creator/CharlieChaplin's schtick, and the song's popularity led to Sempoliński going into hiding from the Nazi occupying forces (who actually had orders to detain him).

* ''Film/{{Downfall}}'' Hitler (of ''Hitler Rants'' fame) is one of the main villains of ''WebAnimation/TheFrolloShow'', and one of the most [[HarmlessVillain incompetent and stupid]]. Even when a question was specifically designed to send [[Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt Scanty]] on a risky mission ''instead'' of him...

* Downplayed, but there are multiple documentaries that take an obvious delight in lampooning Hitler by pointing out that, in real life, he actually ''was'' an absurd little man. What else is there to say about someone who wanted to build a Volkshall big enough that it would have ''its own internal weather system'' in Berlin[[note]]Berlin's soil is extremely soft; subsidence is still a real problem for construction[[/note]] and whose long, ''long'' list of quack remedies and prescription drug-abuse includes injecting bull semen into his bloodstream as a virility tonic?

* HarryEnfieldAndChums had a series of skits that portrayed Hitler, Goebbels, Himmler, and Göring as being super CampGay.
--> '''Hitler:''' Not too camp?
--> '''Goebbels:''' No, not the way you do it.

* One of Hergé's comic strips ''ComicStrip/QuickAndFlupke'' was made during the 1930s. In a some episodes the little boys dress up as Hitler and Mussolini. After World War II these innocent jokes were suddenly not that funny anymore and are kept out of the official Quick & Flupke albums.

* Probably the ultimate example of this trope '''ever''' in ''VideoGame/WolfensteinIITheNewColossus''. Hitler is 71 years old by the events of the game, [[spoiler:and is a physical and mental wreck. Over the course of his appearance he forgets about the casting for a propaganda film he wrote, waves a gun in the actor's faces, pumps an entire clip into Ronald Reagan on the suspicion he's a Jewish spy, stops to take a leak in an ice bucket in full view of the actors, ''misses'' the bucket and pisses all over the floor while ranting about his books and Jewish infiltrators. Then he ''pukes''. ''Then'' he leans into Helene's breasts seeking comfort from his "mother". Then he demands B.J at gunpoint to ''act as himself'' while completely failing to recognise him, and then ''chastises him for failing to properly capture B.J's personality''. And '''[[RunningGag then]]''' he stops halfway through a rant about his film to ''take a nap on the floor''. At this point the player has a chance to go up to the sleeping Hitler [[KickTheSonOfABitch and kill him with a single kick to the face]] [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing - and there's even an achievement for it!]][[note]]Though it also results in a NonStandardGameOver as every guard in the vicinity guns B.J down. WorthIt.[[/note]]]]

** [[DownplayedTrope That said]], he's ''still'' the power-mad, paranoid, genocidal dictator of a world-spanning white supremacist regime which commits countless atrocities against innocent people and is absolutely ''not'' PlayedForLaughs.

This was the default portrayal of Hitler (and the Germans as a whole) [[WartimeCartoon in most Allied media]] during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. German atrocities in eastern Europe, which were dismissed as Communist propaganda elsewhere, made this portrayal a little more controversial there. After Franco-Anglo-American citizens became aware of UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust in the late 1960s and 1970s, this trope became controversial there as well. This is because some people think that making fun of the Nazis makes the War Crimes and genocides they perpetrated seem less serious.

serious. Thus treating Hitler and the Nazis too flippantly may evoke reactions of "DudeNotFunny" Still, many people subscribe to Creator/MelBrooks' view that the Nazis' evilness itself qualifies them as AcceptableTargets.
