* ''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.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/TomandJerry'' cartoon ''Muscle Beach Tom'', Tom uses a helium balloon to inflate Jerry into a balloon and send Jerry floating away high into the sky. Jerry later exacts revenge by inflating Tom's bathing suit (filled up with helium balloons) into one balloon with a helium canister before pricking it, sending Tom floating away high into the sky.

* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' used this frequently. As did ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry''.
** Semi-averted when Wile E. Coyote is blowing up a large balloon to use as a lighter-than-air device. The air rushes back out and inflates him, but he merely bounces along the ground. (He does get airborne when, hanging onto a large bomb for ballast, he suddenly expels all his air and flies around madly like a deflating balloon.)

* In at least two episodes of ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'', Dick Dastardly's schemes involved these kinds of balloons. One was an inflatable version of the Mean Machine, which Dastardly inflated from ''inside'' once it got large enough. An exception occurs in "The Baja-Ha-Ha Race", where Dastardly and Muttley use inflatable cows and bulls as a roadblock.
