** The Christmas special segment set in World War II ended with Marge breaking into a Nazi-filled movie theater, ''Film/IngloriousBasterds'' style. Ater Marge tears through the cinema screen (which is playing a Nazi parody of ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}''), Hitler tears off his moustache and puts it on Goebbels who's sitting next to him.

* The British propaganda ministries often liked to lampoon Hitler and the Nazis, including [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYdmk3GP3iM setting Nazi newsreels to dance music]] and editing pictures of Hitler in grotesquely obscene ways. So did the Soviets, although [[http://lurkmore.so/images/1/1a/%D0%9A%D1%83%D0%BA%D1%80%D1%8B%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%BA%D1%81%D1%8B-%D0%90%D0%BB%D0%BA%D0%BE%D0%B3%D0%BE%D0%BB%D1%8C.jpg their humour]] was somewhat darker and more complex, leaning more towards satire (mocking Hitler's [[StraightEdgeEvil vegetarianism]], for example) rather than outright denigration. Even when Hitler was satirised, the human costs of the Soviet-German war were still paramount. For instance, there are several versions of '[[http://lurkmore.so/images/e/e6/%D0%9A%D1%83%D0%BA%D1%80%D1%8B%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%BA%D1%81%D1%8B-%D0%90%D0%BF%D0%BE%D1%84%D0%B5%D0%BE%D0%B7_%D0%B2%D0%BE%D0%B9%D0%BD%D1%8B_%D0%B2_%D0%BD%D0%BE%D0%B2%D0%BE%D0%BC_%D1%81%D1%82%D0%B8%D0%BB%D0%B5.jpg trying to spot The Final Victory from atop the literal mountain of German soldiers who died trying to make it happen so far']].

* ''Series/WhiteRabbitProject'' has Hitler getting more and more whimsical after being secretly fed estrogen-laced food by British secret agents in the "Estrogen" legend in the ''Crazy [=WW2=] Weapons'' episode. Culminates in Hitler's breast becoming ''enlarged'' followed by Hitler reenacting the opening of ''The Sound of Music''.

** Naturally, he appears in "[[Recap/FamilyGuyS7E3RoadToGermany Road to Germany]]" when Brian, Stewie and Mort are trapped in WW2-era UsefulNotes/{{Poland}} and later, Germany. He only appears in the end where he and Stewie enact a parody of the MirrorRoutine from ''Film/DuckSoup''.

This was the default portrayal of Hitler [[WartimeCartoon in most Allied media]] during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. German atrocities in eastern Europe, which were dismissed as 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.

** In [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS14E19OldYellerBelly "Old Yeller Belly"]], Lisa and Santa's Little Helper watch an old ''Film/RinTinTin'' movie, where the dog bites Hitler for no other apparent reason than the fact that they both appeared in black-and-white movies.

Then Santa's Little Helper sees a mailman that looks like Hitler and attacks him.

* On ''Series/TheLarrySandersShow'', Creator/JonStewart attempts this trope when he's Larry's guest host. A skit features Hank Kingsley as "Adolf Hankler", host of a German version of ''Series/{Jeopardy}}'' in which the answer to every question is "the Jews". Guest Creator/JasonAlexander is so offended that he leaves before Stewart can interview him, and the network (which had warned Stewart about the sketch) immediately stops production on the episode and airs a rerun instead.

No, this doesn't intend to excuse or underplay anything done under his regime. The point is that instead of being treated as some kind of boogeyman or evil incarnate, he's treated as something stupid, for reasons stated in the above quote. Focus is often put on Hitler's actual personality and behavior outside German propaganda - that he was a short, somewhat goofy-looking man prone to hysterics and narcissism, pretty much the opposite of the image he tried to portray to his supporters.
