* EddieMurphy's character pretends to be one in ''Film/TheDistinguishedGentleman'' when campaigning for Congress when his van drives through a Jewish neighborhood, throwing around Yiddish words. Of course, he is earlier revealed to be fluent in Yiddish.

* In Creator/IsaacAsimov's '' Second Foundation'' (volume 3 of the original ''{{Foundation}}'' Trilogy), Preem Palver appears to be a rustic farmer - and speaks with an Immigrant Yiddish accent (which Asimov was completely familiar with). [[spoiler: Subverted, as far from being an unintelligent hick, Palver is the First Speaker of the Second Foundation.]]

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.
