* In an episode of ''Series/GeorgeAndMildred'', the water in the bathroom is off due to plumbing work. Rather than lug water upstairs to take a bath, George decides to bathe in an old tin bath in the living room. Mildred brings the women from her keep fit class home and George attempts to hide by ducking under the surface of the soapy water. HilarityEnsues.

* In the very first episode of ''Sesame Street'', Ernie is taking a bath in a tub located right in the middle of the living room, during which he matter-of-factly chats with Bert. Granted, the layout of Ernie and Bert's place had not really been established yet. Later episodes had the tub relocated to an implied separate bathroom, including the classic Rubber Duckie sequence.

* The (very serious) play (and later movie and opera) ''Theatre/LesFeluettes'' (''Lilies'') has one of these. For no apparent reason, the countess gives her son Vallier a bathtub, but sticks it out in the middle of the woods. Vallier's lover Simon appears and they have a night of passion ([[FanService memorably portrayed]])-- again, for no apparent reason, right there in the great outdoors in Quebec in 1912.

* ''Literature/DiaryOfAYoungGirl''. The Secret Annex in which the Franks and van Pels are hiding from the Nazis in doesn't come with a bath, though it does have running water, so they must bathe in a tin tub. However since everyone has different ideas of acceptable privacy, they all use different rooms in the house.

** The first part of that stereotype was TruthInTelevision. In the days before indoor toilets or hot running water were a standard feature of working-class homes, the only way to heat up water for a bath was a kettle on the stove.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'', the party is healed mainly through {{Healing Spring}}s. Especially in the second half of the game where the setting is more industrial, this inevitably leads to a few awkwardly-placed bathtubs. Possibly the weirdest locations are a laboratory building, a limousine, and a [[BreadEggsMilkSquick random room full of toys in a thunder-emitting tower]].
