Incidentally, the phrase ''alter Kacker'' literally means "old shitter." It's the Yiddish equivalent to the American slang phrase "old fart." Also incidentally, it means the exact same thing in German (which is the basis of Yiddish).

* In the final few episodes of ''{{Soap}}'' Jodie (Billy Crystal) did some past life regression hypnosis and got stuck as a 90 year old Brooklyn Alter Kocker originally from Minsk.
* On ''NorthernExposure'' transplant Joel mentions them back in his "old country" of Queens, NY from time to time.
* Several older characters on ''{{Seinfeld}}'', including the Mandelbaums and at times Jerry's own father, Morty. At one point they have an argument which degenerates into nothing but the word "ehh!". Jerry's Uncle Leo is probably the most stereotypical of an old, grumpy Jew.

Added DiffLines:

Newer depictions often swap out the Yiddish accent for a working-class New York one with the [[YiddishAsASecondLanguage occasional Yiddish word]] dropped in; the second and third generations are alter kackers now.
