* In the Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse, Time Lords [[NeverGetsDrunk are very hard to get drunk]]. Ginger pop, however, hits them hard. Shakespeare once spiked the Doctor's beer, and Hilarity Ensued. (Though unlike in the MorkAndMindy example, it's the ginger that's an intoxicant, not the carbon dioxide.)

* ''Captain Future'' has two examples. First, one of the characters has a pet called Eek who eats metals, preferring heavy ones. Large doses of silver or gold were shown to make him rather drunk. Also, in one of the books, Otho (a shapeshifting android), disguised as a human, goes to investigate in a bar. First, he drinks a bottle of GargleBlaster without any visible effect, then he orders wine... laced with radium chloride. That one works.

* Played literally in Creator/AndreNorton's ''Plague Ship'' (part of the ''Solar Queen'' series). The protagonists are trying to trade with a CatFolk race for valuable gemstones. The problem is, the aliens are unwilling to sell the gems for regular goods... but once they get a sniff of catnip and valerian...
