* Beverley's father (Adam's grandfather) in ''Series/TheGoldbergs'' - he could well be poster boy for this trope.

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 closely related to Yiddish).

** Murphy again, in ''Film/TheDistinguishedGentleman'', assumes a stereotypical Alter Kocker voice and mannerisms when campaigning over a loudspeaker from within his campaign van when it drives through the "Jewish retirees" region of the city.

* Tommy Solomon (an alien who pretends to be a largely secular Jewish teen) in ''Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun'' occasionally acts this way when he drops his cover. Of course, it was a 90s sitcom and they never showed the aliens' true forms, so this instance of the trope was personified by the (also Jewish) Creator//JosephGordonLevitt. No accent, but he'd play up the patronizing crankiness and other mannerisms to a hilt on these occasions.

* Miracle Max and his wife in ''Film/ThePrincessBride''. Miracle Max is explicitly written "old Jewish coot" in [[Literature/ThePrincessBride the original book]]. WilliamGoldman the author (who remember, [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis claims he is adapting a centuries-old story]]) even hangs a lampshade on it on several levels. The movie version of Miracle Max was, on VH-1's ''I Love The 80s'', referred to as "a little Jewish troll." Max's being played by the then thirty-something Billy Crystal only makes it funnier...
