* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short "Forward March Hare", in which WesternAnimation/BugsBunny joins the army and [[RealityEnsues is treated like you'd expect an anthropomorphic rabbit to be treated if inducted into the army]]: with disbelief or thoughts of one losing one's mind. Make what you will of the fact that Bugs also once starred in a WartimeCartoon[=/=]recruitment commercial for the US Marines. [[note]]Apparently they were less inclined to be picky; see the trope page for details.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/MK22'' is an Israeli animated comedy that is made entirely of this trope. It follows the increasingly zany happenings at a [[OpenSecret top secret]] nuclear missile silo deep in the Negev desert, as seen from the point of view of two enlisted men serving as quartermasters. Over its 10-episode run, the series manages to parody and hang lampshades on pretty much every aspect of service in the [=IDF=], and still has time to laugh as Israeli society in general.
