* ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie'': Goofy drags his son Max to a cross-country trip like the ones he took with his dad (which he remembers very fondly, in a subversion of this trope). Along the way there's a stop at a [[SouvenirLand dilapidated theme park]] and a short fishing lesson interrupted by [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti Bigfoot]]. [[spoiler: Oh, and they never actually finish the trip. They do end up bonding, though.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/BirdyTheMighty'', Tsutomu's father abruptly declares that he's going to join his son in the bath for some "father-son naked bonding time" (which makes his wife say "Wait, what?!") Of course, the potential awkwardness is really cranked up since his son is SharingABody with an attractive female alien...and she's in the body when Dad walks in.

* Thane and Kolyat seem to be headed for this in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''. If Thane survives the suicide mission it's shown in the third game that they ''did'' manage to to connect, perhaps even better than they [[WhenYouComingHomeDad had before.]]

* Bart going fishing with Flanders (not really Bart's father, but in this specific instance clearly acts as father figure) in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie''. But, here this is very much appreciated by the boy. Earlier in the movie Homer did take Bart fishing, just with a bug zapper. Later there's an averted example where Homer invites Bart on a particularly badass motorcycle ride, which mends some of the rift between them.
