** In the Russian animated version, it's definitely inflated by lungpower. What's more, Piglet tries inflating it first, and only succeeds in inflating ''himself'' -- and nearly floats away before Pooh catches him.

* Subverted in one ''EncyclopediaBrown'' story. A witness claimed he saw a man known for handing out balloons abducting a child when one of his trademark balloons flew into a tree and got stuck. The witness said he climbed the tree to retrieve it when he saw the balloon man put the kid in his car and drive off. Encyclopedia deduced the witness was lying because the aforementioned balloon man always inflated his balloons by mouth, and therefore would not have flown.

See also {{Balloonacy}} for when the same balloons, inflated with human breath, actually can lift something else up. Related to RuleOfFunny, TheyJustDidntCare, and CriticalResearchFailure.

* ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'' had two examples involving Dick Dastardly. In the ''The Great Cold Rush Race'', Dastardly inflated an inflatable version of the Mean Machine from ''inside'' it to overtake the other cars into first place, but it backfired when Muttley tapped him on the back, inflating Dastardly. In ''Wheezing to Washington'', Dastardly uses his breath to inflate a giant baloon hoping to send the other cars away by popping it. The baloon floats while Dastardly is inflating it, allowing the cars to pass.

* Happened in ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'', where Shrek and Fiona inflated a frog and a snake, respectively, that then floated like helium ballons.
