*The Aesop Rock song ''Get Out Of The Car'' specifically takes a stab at this trope, saying "knowing ain't half the battle, that's a bullshit quip written by some asshole", and proceeds to explain that, no matter how much you know, it won't necessarily change what you do about it.

** In UsefulNotes/TheNewTens, you might as well replace "And Knowing is Half the Battle" with "Your faithful student, Twilight Sparkle".

* ''Dooley and Pals'' ends with "Fun Facts" relating to the plot of the show. The better-known "Children's Ministry" version replaces this with "Fun Bible Facts" with a scripture passage relating to the aesop of the show. (This version was actually overseen by the company that made the secular version, rather than be enforced upon by Christian networks.)

* ''Anime/SailorMoon'' -- the "Sailor Says" segments which were created solely for the Creator/DiC North American dub. Some of these took ''extremely'' vague lessons out of the material. As [[Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses That Chick With The Goggles]] points out two good examples-- "[[ItMakesSenseInContext Today we saw buses vanish into thin air]]. If only we could make the smog that buses cause vanish into thin air, too! Even though we're just kids, we can carpool and make a difference." ...yeah. Another example given was that, although one episode actually had in it a lesson to believe in yourself and have confidence, because the episode was about an insecure artist who was afraid to draw what she really looked like because she didn't believe she looked good enough, the Sailor Says at the end of that episode was a reminder that DrugsAreBad.
