** According to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keith_Moon#Destructive_behaviour The Other Wiki]] [[TheWho Who]] drummer Keith Moon was leaving a hotel then he told the limo driver, "I forgot something. We've got to go back!" Back at the hotel, Moon went to the room and hucked the TV out the window into the pool. As he got back into the limo, he told the driver, "I nearly forgot."

* The opening credits for ''{{SCTV}}'' include a montage of people defenestrating their [=TVs=] in rage because the station is on the air. Buildings the [=TVs=] were thrown out of include high-rises, suburban tract houses, mansions, and a grass hut (probably referencing the African nation of Togo, a running joke on the show).
* Inverted in ''TheYoungOnes'': Vyvyan attempts to throw the TV out the window... only for it to bounce off the glass.

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'' Harry mentions in a letter to Sirius Black that in the course of a tantrum over being put on a diet by his parents, Dudley Dursley threw his UsefulNotes/PlayStation (A CriticalResearchFailure because the scene takes place in the summer of 1994 and the PS1 didn't come out in Europe until Fall 1995) out the window. "Bit stupid, really. Now he's on a diet ''and'' has nothing to take his mind off it."

* During Johnny's rampage at the end of ''Film/TheRoom'', he throws a television out of a window. The scene is not meant to be comedic, but is because of {{Narm}}. He lifts the television with little effort, making no attempt to handle it as a real television and not a lightweight prop.
