* An Internet phenomenon was the spoof {{redub|bing}}s of the original ''G.I. Joe'' shorts by Fensler Films, which usually turned them into [[{{Detournement}} something utterly incoherent and surreal]] ("[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qu51vkm0SuQ&list=PLDDA0985AA94E4A3D Alright, give 'im the stick - DOOOOON'T GIVE 'IM THE STICK!]]").

* ''Series/{{Eureka}}'' has a series of [=PSAs=] called ?Live Smart, Eureka? featured on the Season 2 DVD. They consist of reminding the really smart scientists that what they are doing could potentially be really dumb.

** Then Popeye goes on to explain how millions of tiny germs, too small to be seen, are on their hands, so they need to wash them. (Popeye [[ContrivedCoincidence just happens to be examining his stamp collection at the time, giving him a magnifying glass within reach.)

Added DiffLines:

* Each strip of ''Webcomic/{{Megamanspritecomic}}'' has one tagged at the end, vaguely relating to the strip.

* ''The ComicStrip/{{Popeye}} and Olive Show'' had various safety messages, usually featuring Popeye's identical quintuplet nephews, between the shorts.

* ''The ComicStrip/{{Popeye}} and Olive Show'' had various safety messages, usually featuring Popeye's identical quintuplet nephews, between the shorts. Many of them had a seedy fellow named "Mr. Stranger" who represented any AdultFears caused by criminals (he'd often be driven away by Popeye or by falling victim to whatever he was encouraging.

** Interestingly, season 1 of My Little Pony has the EI rating, while season 2 does not. The production team apparently decided this change of rules was ''awesome'', and thus made "Lesson Zero": Twilight is unable to learn a new lesson about friendship and [[SanitySlippage goes nuts]] with fear. At the end of the episode, Princess Celestia tells Twilight she only has to write letters when she feels she has learned something, effectively freeing this from being mandatory and expanded the responsibility to include the others element bearers. Since then a "Twilight writes a letter" scene has been rare but the general form remains more or less constant.

Since then a "Twilight writes a letter" scene has been rare but the general form remains more or less constant. This also expands the "Twilight Sparkle writes a letter" so that other main characters also retell what they learned throughout the episode.


Added DiffLines:

** Season 5 and beyond [[AvertedTrope have dropped the Aesop-giving scenes at the end of each episode]]. The episodes still teach morals, but they're no longer explicitly spelled out at the end.

* At the end of each episode of ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'', Gadget, Penny and Brain would teach the kids a safety tip (usually at least tangentially related to the episode's story) like "exercise is good for you" or "always wear a seatbelt".

This often looked really out of place, since normally Penny was about 1000 times smarter than her uncle. Turning into a normal ignorant kid and having her uncle correct her behavior did not jive with the rest of the show.

* Several [=PSA=] segments were prepared for ''Franchise/TransformersGeneration1'', another Hasbro property produced by Sunbow and Marvel Productions concurrent with G.I. Joe. The segments even used the "and knowing is half the battle" line (and the scripts from the G.I. Joe [=PSAs=] almost ''verbatim''), but they never aired. These were placed as unlockable bonuses in the [[Anime/TransformersArmada Armada]]-based [=PS2=] game, and are also available on some DVD releases of the show. The most hypocritical one had an anti-sexism message, at a time when there were no female Transformers, and came from Powerglide, who had an episode that season where a human woman fell in love with him (presumably, the [=PSA=] would have aired after that episode...).

* ''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.)
