* In "Abraca-Cabbage" from the [[Creator/DisneyChannel Disney Junior]] series ''[[WesternAnimation/GoldieAndBear Goldie & Bear]]'', Goldie experiences essentially a sort-of G-rated version of this. While performing a magic show, one of her tricks was to turn herself into a cabbage. As she was supposedly turning herself back, a bird stole her magic hat, so she ran off to chase after it, leaving Bear to believe that she had become stuck as a cabbage and couldn't change back. At the end of the story, she wanders in on the eulogy that her friends are having for her, now that she's apparently doomed to spend the rest of her life as an inanimate cabbage. After listening to some touching words from the BigBadWolf ("Big Bad"), she pretends that Bear's shouted "Abra-cabbage!" has brought her back, before revealing the truth.

[[folder:Western Animation]] * Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode where Bart and Nelson play the roles of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. After a scene implies they've been hanged, they're shown hiding while their funeral is going on, grinning widely... only for it to be revealed that it's merely their corpses about to be lowered in the coffins (apparently there was a very good embalmer on hand or something, but probably RuleOfFunny is a more apt explanation). ** In another episode, Lisa lives in a redwood tree to prevent it from being cut down. She sneaks away one night to spend it with the family, at the same time the tree was struck by lightning and destroyed. The entire town believe her to be dead, and hold a large funeral for her, where the Rich Texan announces that he is turning the redwood forest into an amusement park in Lisa's memory. Lisa dramatically arrives, and announces her outrage. * In ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', in the episode "The Late Mr. Kent," Superman shows up at Clark Kent's funeral. * In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "A Pharaoh To Remember," the Planet Express crew stages a fake funeral for Bender to convince him that he will be remembered after he's gone. -->'''Bender''': Louder and sadder! ** There's also the end of ''Bender's Big Score'' where Fry, courtesy of time travel shenanigans, attends his own, non-faked, funeral. Well, technically the funeral of a time-travel duplicate, but still. ** Heavily parodied in the ShowWithinAShow ''All My Circuits'' by Calculon. * ''StrokerAndHoop'': Stroker faked his own death, as well as his son's and C.A.R.R.'s, in order to avoid a gang of ninjas, an then secretly attended his own funeral. Though Stroker later admits that bringing his son to his own funeral was a crappy idea. * In ''Huck And Tom's Mississippi Adventure'', Huck pretended to drown, then watched his funeral by looking through the church window after climbing a tree. * In "[[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E45DeadDuck Dead Duck]]", WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck "was late for his own funeral" and regretted about this. He visited his grave, though, and was deeply disappointed.
