* The trappers in ''Film/CannibalTheMusical'' [[VillainSong boast in song about their superiority to the prospectors]].

** It has a ''double'' example: after suffering through one mishap after another that prevents him from getting into the tournament theater [[{{Otaku}} to see his favorite kung fu fighters in action]], Po throws all caution to the winds, ties himself to a chair with hundreds of fireworks bound onto it, and prepares to light the fuse. His (adoptive) father shows up, incredulously demanding what he's doing. Admitting that he does not dream of making noodles, he lights the fuse and lets out a proud, reveling crow that he loves kung fu... only to have the fireworks do nothing, apparently duds. His dreams crushed, he sadly takes his apron to go back to work--only to have the fireworks go off after all. Comedy gold.

* In ''Series/TheATeam'' episode "[[Recap/TheATeamS3E6DoubleHeat Double Heat]]", after the A-Team realizes that one of the crime bosses bugged Jenny's phone and now knows where her father is hidden, the scene switches to Mr. Olsen waiting for room service at the hotel. The viewer might think it's one of their men when the doorbell rings... and then Hannibal's voice comes from the other side of the door.
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Tyrion's description of the Wall in "The Night Lands":
--> '''Tyrion:''' "I found it surprisingly beautiful... in a brutal, horribly uncomfortable sort of way."
** Tyrion's confession in "The Laws of Gods and Men" quickly shifts into an angry TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.
** In "High Sparrow" it initially seems Jon might put Alliser Thorne in charge of the latrines, but instead that job goes to a random steward and Thorne is named First Ranger.
** Alliser Thorne initially moves to interfere in Janos' execution but then steps aside.
** Jon is taken aback and pauses when Janos Slynt begs for mercy, then carries out the sentence anyway.
** In "Kill the Boy", Ramsay subverts the expectations of both Reek and the audience by saying, "I forgive you."
** ClingyJealousGirl Myranda baits Sansa into the back of the kennels in what seems like an obvious trap to MurderTheHypotenuse, but it turns out to be a face-to-face encounter with Reek.
** Near the end of "Kill the Boy", Tyrion is pulled deeper into the water by a stone man as the screen FadesToBlack as if to create a cliffhanger to the episode. After a long pause, we fade back in for a final scene as Tyrion regains consciousness after being rescued.
** In "The Gift", Reek is sent to give a signal to Sansa's supporters outside Winterfell. Unfortunately, he obediently reports to Ramsay instead.
** Tyrion's attempt to break his chains is interrupted by someone looming over him, but rather than a guard it's another pit fighter who obligingly breaks the chains with his ''arakh''.
** When Jon returns to the Wall with thousands of wildling refugees in "The Dance of Dragons", known wildling-hater Alliser Thorne looks down on them with contempt for several moments before ordering the gate opened.
** Hizdahr arrives a bit late to the dais in "The Dance of Dragons" and says something very suspicious about ensuring everything goes according to plan, but his subsequent actions soon prove he had no involvement in the ambush.
** Arya is about to carry out her first assassination for the Faceless Men when her attention is diverted to one of the men on her personal hit list.
** Ramsay casually shoots two arrows at Rickon and misses. Then he draws a third arrow and takes careful, deadly aim. He misses that one as well. Then he hits with an arrow we didn't even see him loose.
* On an episode of ''Series/{{Selfie}}'', Henry is standing at his desk talking to someone off-camera, praising them. The camera cuts to his assistant (and a small, elephant shaped lozenge) Charlie who says "Thanks, I feel like I'm still on a journey of discovery and-" Henry cuts him off and says he was talking to the lozenge. It fits with Henry's {{Workaholic}} nature and his tendency to get excited about his work,
* One of the more brilliant examples is from the sketch comedy ''Series/TheKidsInTheHall'', in which two characters start the "WhosOnFirst" skit, but before long one of them realises what's going on and explains at length what the names of the players are and what bases they're playing.
* There's a great example in the ''Series/FatherTed'' Christmas Special: ''A Christmassy Ted''. Father Ted states he wants a nice normal Christmas with no excitement or unexpected interruptions whatsoever. There's an awkward lengthy pause, and then the doorbell rings. An abandoned baby has been left on the doorstep, causing Ted to start. Then a woman appears out of the darkness, picks up the baby and asks, "Is this Mrs. O'Reilly's house?" and Ted directs her next door. On returning indoors he says to Dougal, "Can you imagine how funny it would have been if it had been an abandoned baby? We'd have had real laughs getting into all sorts of scrapes." Dougal replies: "Well, no Ted, it wouldn't have been that funny."
* In the ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode "Objects in Space" a fight in the corridor wakes Jayne up and he whips a bed sheet off his wall revealing an arsenal of weapons (complete with heroic leitmotif). Then he wraps himself up in the bed sheet and goes back to sleep.
* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': "Double Or Nothing" has Angel give Cordelia a stake saying "you know what to do." It's implied that he is telling her to stake him if he loses the game and loses his soul, as well as Gunn's. (It MakesSenseInContext .) When he does lose, Cordelia stakes the demon he was playing with [[ImpaledPalm through the hand]]. This gives Angel the opportunity to cut off the demon's head.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Jonathan takes out a large gun and it's implied that he intends to shoot up the school. [[DrivenToSuicide He doesn't]].
** In the episode "Lovers Walk", Cordelia falls through a stairway and is impaled on a piece of rebar. There's a sad scene of her getting weaker and passing out, played out exactly as if she were dying. Cut to a funeral service being held at an open grave... and then the camera pans away to show Buffy and Willow walking past the Cemetary chatting about how Cordelia survived.
* One of the many {{Catch Phrase}}s on ''Series/GetSmart'' was the "Would you believe [improbable statement]?" routine, which almost invariably ended with Max being [[VerbalBackspace beaten down]] to something far more plausible than his opening line.
** At one point, he claims that "One of our agents was lost in the Pentagon for five days, would you believe it? Five days!" After the obligatory I-find-that-very-hard-to-believe... he begins attempting to remember on which day he entered the Pentagon. Of course, Max is a GeniusDitz of the first order, so...
** And then the movie ''Get Smart Again'' pulled one on that very gag: At the end, Max tells 99 "I love you more than the whole world. Would you believe it?" To which wife 99 replies "I believe it!"
** And then the remake movie uses it twice. The latter occurrence pulls this on the gag as above, when Max is asked about the whereabouts of a nuclear bomb and in turn asks, "Would you believe... in the piano?" [[spoiler: It is]]. The first time plays it completely straight and delivers a CrowningMomentOfFunny in the process:
--->'''Max:''' I think it's only fair to warn you, this facility is surrounded by a highly trained team of 130 Black Op Snipers.\\
'''Siegfried:''' I don't believe you.\\
'''Max:''' Would you believe two dozen Delta Force Commandos?\\
'''Siegfried:''' No.\\
'''Max:''' How about Chuck Norris with a BB gun?
* In ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', as Amy and Leonard bring Sheldon back from his cross-country trip:
-->'''Amy:''' Sheldon, I'm your girlfriend, but when you needed help you called Leonard and not me. You hurt my feelings.\\
'''Sheldon:''' Amy, could you give us some privacy?\\
'''Amy:''' We're in a car.\\
'''Sheldon:''' Cover your ears. ''[she grudgingly does so]'' Leonard, as soon as we get home, I want to have intercourse with Amy. ''[Leonard stares at him in shock, Sheldon glances at Amy]'' Okay, she can't hear us, we can talk.
* In ''Series/NUMB3RS'', the following dialogue occurs between Charlie and a rival mathematician:
--> '''Charlie:''' You're wrong. Its structure lacks originality or integrity.\\
'''Archrival:''' It's a classic organization based on tested and proven elements.\\
'''Charlie:''' It's a chain! It's a chain with irregularities that come with maintaining complex matrices.\\
'''Archrival:''' Oh, so you propose that a single point mechanism provides superior output?\\
''[Fleinhardt walks in]''\\
'''Fleinhardt:''' Enough! Surely, two eminent mathematicians can find ways to calmly discuss theory.\\
'''Charlie:''' ... We're not discussing theory.\\
'''Archrival:''' No. We're talking hamburgers.\\
'''Charlie:''' Pie n' Burger's the best, man. There's no question about it.\\
'''Archrival:''' In and Out is far superior.
* In one of the episodes of the second series of ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'', Edmund is shown doing what appears to be yelling at the Queen and Lord Melchett. After he is finished the Queen replies "And what did you say to him?"
* Most of the deaths in ''Series/DeadLikeMe''. Doomed fry cook picks up a very large knife and brings it down -- on a potato. The stove won't light so he pulls out a match -- and lights it without a hitch. He then proceeds to choke on a sandwich.
* ''Series/SixFeetUnder'' does the same thing as ''Dead Like Me'', setting up a death to make you think someone will die in one way, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXHDJb8io7Q only for someone else to die in a completely unexpected fashion.]] Example: a father and his daughter release a pigeon into the air. Pigeon craps on an actor's hat. The actor goes into a convenience store and uses the out-of-order bathroom to clean his hat, even using the broken toilet. The storeowner goes into the bathroom to start cleaning up while talking on the phone with his wife. The wife goes outside, still on the phone, and gets hit by frozen airplane waste.
* A notable one at the start of the second season of ''Series/NoahsArc''. [[spoiler:Noah is talking about this guy who he may be in love with, and based on the first season its implied to be Wade (the OneTruePairing). When we actually see the guy its Malik, who Noah cheated on Wade with earlier as part of a random hookup]].
* ''Series/SonsOfGuns'': Steph uses a shotgun to win an accuracy contest while the guys use {{Handguns}}.
-->'''Kris:''' I've been bamboozled!
* In ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' the gang find a tape of Robin which initially plays out as though it were porn. It's far worse -- she was a ''teen pop star.'' Though the line gets blurred a bit when they locate her later work, which has the visuals of a kids' educational show but a script that [[DoubleEntendre doesn't quite match]].
* On ''Series/HaveIGotNewsForYou'', the chairman's scripted jokes often include things along the lines of:
-->"This is the news that Anne Robinson has had her face injected with Botox. Deadly poisonous and liable to induce vomiting, Anne Robinson presents ''Series/TheWeakestLink''."
* Angus Deayton carried this style of joke over to ''Series/WouldILieToYou''; on both shows, it stayed after he went. Often, part of the joke is for the setup to be long enough for the GenreSavvy audience to figure out what's coming.
* One recurring sketch on ''TV To Go'' features an ex-con ranting about how much the world changed while he was in prison. One sketch had him going on a lengthy rant about the huge increase in surveillance and CCTV in the UK, which he follows by him relating how he and an accomplice had recently scouted a jewelry store, made sure it was clear then broke in by throwing a brick wrapped in newspaper at the window. The next day, the accomplice was arrested. Why? Because the newspaper was delivered to his house [[TooDumbToLive and still had his address written in the front page]].
* ''Series/{{Community}}'':
** Two students look at a problem on a chalkboard and say that it's unsolvable. After they leave, Troy looks at the problem and picks up a piece of chalk... then puts the chalk in his pocket and walks away.
** Also, this quote:
--->'''Troy:''' Uh, guys, what does a pregnancy test look like?\\
'''Jeff:''' ''[distracted]'' Eh, it looks like a thin piece of plastic with a thing on the end of it?\\
'''Troy:''' Okay, so this is definitely A '''GUN'''!
* The the first three episodes of the first season of ''Series/TheAlmightyJohnsons'' grabbed the viewers' attention with nudity and sex. But went on to keep them with storyline and writing.
* In one episode of ''Series/{{Chopped}}'', during the judging of the Dessert round, Scott Conant makes a remark to one of the chefs that the sauce he made with his dessert tasted like baby aspirin. The chef took that as a bad thing and hung his head in shame until Scott added, "...which is something I loved when I was a kid."
* ''Series/Daredevil2015'':
** In the season 2 premiere "Bang", the Kitchen Irish guys are set up to be the series' antagonists, as their leader gives a speech inciting his troops to a campaign of violence to retake Hell's Kitchen. Then Frank Castle machine-guns them all in about a minute.
** In "Dogs to a Gunfight," the NYPD Emergency Service Unit has set up a trap for Frank Castle, using a lowly Irish mob grunt named Grotto as bait. A semi truck cab comes barreling into the yard where the cops are waiting. The ESU officers light the truck up, riddling it with bullets. They open the cab door, and find not Frank Castle, but the body of the Dogs of Hell biker we'd seen a few scenes earlier cleaning the truck while listening to "The Price of Punishment" on his headset. It's a diversion, making the police look the other way while Castle takes his shot from a nearby water tower.
** In "No Regrets," Stan Gibson's Yakuza bodyguards, who got knocked out by Matt and Elektra in the bathroom, are summoned along with Gibson to Hirochi's office to be lectured for their failure. [[{{Fingore}} The bodyguards tie pieces of string around their pinkie fingers, awaiting their amputation.]] Hirochi instead shoots the bodyguards in the head.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** In "A Good Man Goes to War", Amy, held hostage by Madame Kovarian, consoles her newborn daughter Melody by promising her, "There's a man who's never going to let us down. And not even an army can get in the way." Her speech sounds like she's talking about the Doctor, until she tells Melody, "That man is your father. He has a name, but the people of our world know him better... as the Last Centurion." At which point the audience realizes that she was talking about Rory.
** Since Moffat took over the show, people who seem to talk about the Doctor while meaning someone else have become commonplace. Most notably the opening narration of "A Town Called Mercy" is ultimately revealed to refer to [[spoiler:the MonsterOfTheWeek, who is more of an AntiVillain on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge, and quite noble once his hunt is over.]]
** Episode titles sometimes do this. "The Next Doctor", "The Doctor's Daughter" and "The Doctor's Wife", for instance.
* A staple of Chandler's jokes on ''Series/{{Friends}}'', especially when he talks about his parents and seems to be talking about his mother, but is actually talking about his (transvestite) father.
* ''Series/{{Frasier}}'': In the episode after Roz first announces her pregnancy, Daphne and Martin repeatedly question her on whether or not she's told the father, and on each occasion either Frasier or Niles suddenly walks in on their conversation, strongly implying that one of them is the father (more likely Frasier, since she still didn't get along too well with Niles at this point). As it actually turns out, [[spoiler:the father is a previously-unmentioned barista at the local coffee shop]].
* ''Series/{{QI}}'': "There are LOADS of female comedians, you just don't see them because they [[ConspiracyTheorist are rounded up and kept in a pen outside Harridge. You can adopt one online.]]
* The ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' episode "Nocturne" has a really good one. For the first half, it's about Clark and Lana trying to rescue a boy named Byron from his abusive parents, who keep him locked in the basement and claim he drowned years ago. However, when they do get him out of the house (they'd only met him at night before this), it turns out his parents ''weren't'' abusive. [[spoiler:Ever since he was part of a [=LexCorp=] experiment to handle antisocial behavior, entering sunlight causes him to [[HulkingOut get some freaky big abs]] with a side order of UnstoppableRage and super-strength that rivals Clark's.]]
* In an episode of ''Series/NewGirl'', Cece is extremely horny and wants to have sex with Schmidt, who for once insists that he has too much work to do. Eventually, she says that she's willing to have sex "anywhere". He asks her if that includes "Fantasy Location Number Three". She hesitates, rolls her eyes and says "All right." [[spoiler:It turns out that he meant the trunk of his car.]]
* On ''Series/{{ER}}'', Carter and Maggie Doyle's relationship appears to be classic BelligerentSexualTension. . .until she takes him to a shooting range and suddenly freaks out because she's just spotted her insanely jealous ex-''girlfriend''. Meaning that they were just basically two people who just couldn't get along.
* ''Series/OneThousandWaysToDie'' revels in this in its later seasons. In one particular example, a burglar attacks the owner of the house he is breaking into with a bat. The victim's wife tries to revive him with CPR, but to no avail: he is dead, and the segment's death name and number appears...'''''BUT''''', the victim regains consciousness only moments later, for he had Lazarus Syndrome, a condition that causes a spontaneous return of circulation and, with it, life and consciousness. The victim gives chase after the burglar, who, freaked out that the guy he had just murdered is alive, falls off a balcony and to his own death.
* ''Series/{{MASH}}'': Hawkeye flirts with a nurse, as B.J. and Margaret look on.
-->'''B.J.:''' Look at that brazen hussy over there. And the woman he's with!
* One of those ''Franchise/LawAndOrder'' two-chatting-bystanders-stumble-across-a-body segments had two cops discussing the elaborate party which the male officer and his wife just threw for their little guy's birthday. He's telling his partner about how the birthday boy made a mess of the cake, but managed to open his own presents, when she breaks in to suggest that, maybe, it's time the couple should start thinking about having ''kids'', not just a dog.
* In audience quiz games on her show, Creator/EllenDegeneres often uses bait and switch questions that seem to be related to one topic but then change to something only marginally-related to the original topic, such as talking about Barack Obama's trip to Cuba, but then asking for movies Cuba Gooding was in.
* In the ''Series/CSIMiami'' episode, "Smacked", the show changes (CommericalCut typically right before a commercial break) from the main plot to clips of an unidentified man doing things that would be needed to make something out of wood and metal. As the story continues, the KillerOfTheWeek turns out to be [[spoiler: the cousin of the serial killer who committed murders similar to the current ones]]. When the episode comes to an end, the unidentified man in the aforementioned changes turns out to be the serial killer's [[spoiler: coffin maker. Or rather, the maker of ''his'' coffin. The killer wanted Caine's team to focus in on his cousin - who he knew was killing people to make up for his "short-comings" in a previous tag-team killing]]. [[spoiler: {{Anticlimax Then the serial killer commits suicide via a peanut butter sandwich.]]
* ''Series/BoardwalkEmpire'':
** The show [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Er5FU13wpSI intercuts]] between two Internal Revenue agents getting a tax evasion warrant and what seem to be a group of tax collectors going to Salvatore Maranzano's office acting on that warrant. Only when they're in his office are they revealed to be assassins sent to kill him and the two agents getting the warrant are actually talking about Al Capone.
** An interesting one in "The Ivory Tower". Near the beginning of the episode, Jimmy buys a necklace. Later on, he gives his wife an also expensive bracelet instead of that necklace, so it's already fishy. Then, he can't have sex with her because his son is napping in the same room. He looks frustrated, so he goes to a Broadway rehearsal. Backstage, a great-looking woman is jumping with joy when he sees her, so the audience assumes it's an old flame and Jimmy's there for a booty call. He gives her the necklace from the beginning of the episode. And then it turns out it's his ''mother''. This sets up their underlying OedipusComplex.
** In "21" Mrs. Van Alden is visibly aroused after watching Nelson perform a raid of a restaurant selling illegal liquor. We cut to a shot of a headboard rhythmically pounding...from Nelson testing out the springs by pressing with his hand. However, the scene ends how you think it would.
** In "Age of Reason", Lucy's water has broken, and we see Van Alden in the hospital, looking like [[PanickyExpectantFather he's shitting a brick with nerves]]. He's allowed into the hospital room....of the Prohibition agent who was burned in the explosion.
** Nucky, Eli, and Manny Horvitz pull it on Jimmy in "To the Lost": Manny isn't a prisoner and Eli's really on Nucky's side. Unfortunately, Jimmy [[DrivenToSuicide doesn't care]].
** Manny Horvitz is set up for an apparent long arc in the Season 3 premiere, having become an enforcer for Nucky between seasons, and convincing him to let Manny part ways with Mickey and give him his own distillery in exchange for killing a rival. He's shot by Richard Harrow at the end of the episode, just as he opens the door to go looking for that rival.
** Arnold Rothstein is mad at Nucky for failing to keep his part of an arrangement and makes another agreement with his rival, Gyp Rosetti. He's actually giving Rosetti a false sense of security before he orders a hit on him.
** "Sunday Best" opens with Eli secretly stashing unseen objects around his yard, looking suspiciously over his shoulder each time. It turns out that they're just Easter Eggs.
* At first, we're led to think that Henry "Pop" Hunter in ''Series/LukeCage2016'' got his nickname from his father figure tendencies. Luke even seems to think that. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lEifVc1cZ0 Actually, it was because that was the sound his fists made when he was a young street brawler]]. Snap. Crackle. ''Pop''.
* In the beginning of the ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' episode [[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS2E3MakingFriendsAndInfluencingPeople "Making Friends and Influencing People"]], we're led to believe that Simmons has defected to HYDRA, complete with her coming home to find Coulson waiting for her demanding "you thought I wouldn't find out?". Turns out, he's just [[TeamDad concerned]] about the fact that she's not been eating well while [[ReverseMole working undercover]].
* Throughout season 2 of ''Series/BreakingBad'', we get small glimpses of a future incident. The full sequence shows that ''something'' happened in the White residence. A group of people in hazmat suits clean up the house's pool, Walt's car for some reason has a broken windshield, and there are two bodies which the audience is led to believe are Walter's and Jesse's. What actually happened was [[spoiler:that two planes crashed mid-air and the bodies were two passengers unrelated to the main plot, even though the accident was an indirect result of the characters' actions]].
* ''Series/IronFist2017'':
** In the second episode, Colleen Wing appears to get ambushed by a group of thugs, and dispatches them with ease...who turn out to be her students, who she's teaching to apply their skills in the real world.
** In another episode, Colleen finds some of her students watching a video of her [[FightClubbing cage match]] on their cell phone. Naturally, she's not pleased...because cell phone use is forbidden in her dojo (she's also not pleased about her cage matches either, since she participates in them to pay the bills and she has to admit she's a {{hypocrite}}).
** In "Felling With Tree Routes," Madame Gao arrives at the executive suite in the Rand Enterprises building, walks into Danny's office, and tells Danny that he needs to take better care of himself...because his office has terrible feng shui. Madame Gao, a woman who leaves men like [[ComicBook/TheKingpin Wilson Fisk]], [[FourEyesZeroSoul James Wesley]], and [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Harold Meachum]] scared out of their wits, is complaining about ''interior decorating''. She leaves Danny a bonsai tree and reminds him to water it.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has so many that [[BaitAndSwitch/TheSimpsons it has its own sub page]].
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''
** In the early episode "Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo", Kenny (who dies horribly in almost every episode) is continually subjected to a series of extremely hazardous situations. But nothing ever happens and he survives to the end of the episode for the first time.
** Another example is the episode "Mecha-Streisand". Instead of being trampled by [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever the giant metal Barbra Streisand]], Kenny gets strangled playing tether-ball.
** Happens multiple times in the more recent episodes when you expect Kenny to die like being held at gunpoint, but doesn't.
** If there is an episode where the preview involves anything that will get a large portion of the fanbase going "Ha ha, they're making fun of X" the actual episode will likely portray X in a much more endearing manner, while those that see it as cheap, AcceptableTargets will be the ones on the receiving end of a TakeThat. These episodes typically center around Cartman. One notable example is "Poor and Stupid", with regard to NASCAR and its fanbase.
** Part 2 of "Cartman's Mom is A Dirty Slut!"... WILL NOT BE SHOWN TODAY to bring you this special showing of Terrance And Philip! (To explain, this episode was supposed to [[RiddleForTheAges reveal Cartman's father]] after the previous episode left fans hanging for SIX WEEKS. Fans were not pleased.)
** In "You Have 0 Friends", the whole sequence of Stan trapped inside the world of Facebook is a homage of Film/{{TRON}}, and it appears that everything is all set for the inevitable Lightcycle race... when the bikes are abruptly replaced with a game of TabletopGame/{{Yahtzee}}.
** In "#[=HappyHolograms=]," the last few minutes of the episode seem like they're going to be bringing in Mr. Hankey to save the day, but it ends up being ''LetsPlay/PewDiePie,'' instead.
** In "You're Not Yelping", the father of the new Mexican family hopes their restaurant does well so they won't have to move back to "that horrible place". [[spoiler:It later turns out he was talking about Boise, Idaho.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'':
** Bender has been rigged to a bomb which is set to go off on his most frequently used word. As it goes through the list, it starts to get to his catchphrase, "Number 5:Bite... Number 4: My... Number 3: Shiny... Number 2: Daffodil..."
** In "Bender's Game", when the characters enter a cave called the Cave of Hopelessness:
--->'''Frydo:''' Mr. Wizard, why is this place called the Cave of Hopelessness?\\
'''Greyfarn:''' Oh, fear not, lad. 'Tis named for its discoverer, Reginald Hopelessness...\\
'''Frydo:''' Whew!\\
'''Greyfarn:''' ...the first man to be eaten alive by the Tunneling Horror.
** In "The Problem with Popplers", the crew wants to find a name for a new food:
--->'''Bender:''' They're tasty, right? Let's call 'em "Tasty-cles".\\
''[{{collective groan}}]''\\
'''Leela:''' We can't call them that.\\
'''Bender:''' Why not?\\
'''Leela:''' It sounds too much like those frozen Rocky Mountain oysters on a stick. You know, Test-cicles?
** The Mars University Professor Fisherprice Shpeekenshpell (a robot with [[NonindicativeName a Mattell See 'n Say]] for a head) continually talks with programmed lines like "The cow says 'Moo'" (apparently he proved that 50 years ago and had been coasting on it ever since). When it comes time to vote on Amy's doctorate:
--->'''Professor Katz:''' We shall now vote, "Yay" or "Nay". Nay.\\
'''Wernstrom:''' Nay!\\
'''Bubblegum:''' Hell, nay!\\
'''Shpeekenshpell:''' The horse says, "Doctorate denied".
** From the first episode.
--->'''Cop:''' Keep you big nose out of this, Eyeball!\\
'''Leela:''' ''No one'' makes fun of my nose.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' is loaded with these! [[BaitAndSwitch/FamilyGuy So many that it has its own page too!]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'' episode "'Til Deaf" when two kids placing the letter R over the "ELECTIONS TODAY" sign outside the high school. They actually placed it over the letter I.
* Happens sometimes on ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'', a show full of {{Running Gag}}s:
** In "Voyage to the Bottom of Buford", Candace uses a disposable camera to document the boys' adventures; meanwhile, Doofenshmirtz has invented the Media-Erase-Inator. That seems to fit perfectly, but the ray actually ends up erasing a stop sign, causing a traffic accident which knocks over a water tower, and the resulting wave of water destroys the camera.
** In "Gaming the System", Candace gets sucked into Phineas and Ferb's video game when she was in the middle of getting ready for a date with Jeremy. Meanwhile, Dr. Doofenshmirtz has created a laser that puts fancy dresses on anyone who is shot with it. Right before Jeremy shows up, Perry and Dr. Doofenshmirtz fight and cause the laser to accidentally go off and shoot... everyone in the yard except Candace. Soon after that, Perry gets out of the dress he was wearing and it falls on Candace (and somehow does her hair).
** "S'Winter": Doofenshmirtz creates the Meltinator ray, leading one to think that it will melt the boys' mountain of snow. Instead, it shorts out the city's power when he plugs it in, shutting off the fans that kept the snow cooled, and the snow melts on its own.
** One unrelated to the show's running gags occurs in "A Real Boy". Candace gets Stacy to hypnotize her into not wanting to bust the boys anymore, with the result that the phrase "Holy guacamole!" will make Candace give up her urges to bust her brothers, and "Leaping lizards!" will make her go back to normal. When Candace heads off on her date with Jeremy, the two of them spot a ''literal'' leaping lizard, and Jeremy rattles off several treacherously-close synonyms for the code phrase, which actually ends up being said by a passing kid.
** In "Flop Starz", Candace attempts to show her mom a building with an ad for the band Phineas and Ferb started. Then Doofenshmirtz' robot building starts going towards the building, making it look like it's going to crush it. However, Perry manages to turn it away at the last minute. Then it turns out that the building was scheduled for demolition right at that moment anyway.
* On ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'', just before Jimmy is about to perform a particularly irresponsible stunt, Beezy tells them to be careful not to break his dad's PricelessMingVase. Jimmy performs the stunt...and misses the vase entirely. Beezy dances around and celebrates... and spikes the vase.
* In the first episode of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Twilight Sparkle has been told by her mentor to make some friends, but she has absolutely no interest in doing so. However, every pony she interacts with makes some kind of "we're gonna be friends" comment, causing her to have a reaction of some sort (spit take, eye twitch, etc.). When the last pony, Pinkie Pie, throws her a party so "now you have lots and lots of friends," Twilight nearly hurks her drink... not because of Pinkie's comment, but because she accidentally took a big sip of [[BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce hot sauce]].
* In the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' episode [[Recap/JusticeLeagueUnlimitedS1E5ThisLittlePiggy "This Little Piggy"]], Franchise/WonderWoman gets turned into a pig by Circe. Toward the end, Batman offers to bargain with Circe to get her back.
-->'''Circe:''' I want something from you that's ''very'' precious. Something you've worked ''very'' hard to conceal. Something when gone, you can never reclaim. Something... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57zFkL9GSZA soul-shattering.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'':
** There is a classic short that ends with this. WesternAnimation/BugsBunny has to deal with some hillbilly hawks. The short ends with a series of gags that end with one of the hawks shooting the other every time he hears the word "four" (or any homonym of that word). At the very end, it shows Bugs dressed like a golfer about to yell out "Fore!" but then he stops himself by saying, "Nah. Why should I get in on the act?"
*** Subverted: Bugs starts to sing the first couple of lines of [[spoiler:"I'm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover"]]. On repeat.
** A clip from a Warner Bros. gag reel (not meant for public release) shows WesternAnimation/PorkyPig hitting his thumb with a hammer. He starts to stammer "Son of a b-b...!", but in his usual fashion, he changes what he's going to say after he finishes stuttering. In this case, he changes it to "Son of a gun!" However, the ''real'' switch is, Porky goes BreakingTheFourthWall and says to the audience, "You thought I was gonna say son of a bitch, didn't ya?"
** In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'', Daffy tries his hand at inventing. His speech indicates he's invented a time machine... but he's invented a suitcase.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy''/''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' crossover, Billy spills mustard on his father's pants. He reasons, out loud, that there's only one group of kids who can help solve his problems, and grabs the phone... where he calls the cast of ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''... who ''then'' tell him to call the Kids Next Door.
* In the pilot episode of ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'', the Delightful Children from Down the Lane say at the end that the girl they chose to prevent the Kids Next Door from taking their birthday cake (that they refuse to share) was a horrible choice that they never should have used. The girl makes this face and gets angered, not because of what the Delightful Children said, but because the Delightfuls' cake was coconut flavor, which she hated.
* {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in ''WesternAnimation/TheEmperorsNewSchool''. Kuzco claims to have the perfect way to get into a store he's been kicked out of. Cut to a llama with a head and feet that look suspiciously like Kuzco's walking into the store. Kuzco then jumps out from offscreen and attacks the guard. Kuzco then stops the show and says, "You're probably wondering what [[LampshadeHanging that llama that looked just like me]] had to do with my plan: absolutely nothing."
* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'':
** In the episode "Unfortunate Cookie", Dee Dee comes into Dexter's lab to tell him about a Chinese finger trap she found in her box of fortune cookies. Dexter responds by saying, "How can it be?" and begins a mathematical lecture about what we think is the possibilities of that happening, but it turned out he was just complaining about how Dee Dee keeps coming into his lab.
** In the episode, "G.I.R.L. Squad", Dee Dee and her friends come into Dexter's lab to ask him what "Lick crime" means. Dexter gives the girls a tour of stuff they might need to help them with their mission, which eventually leads to a teleporter, which Dexter winds up using to teleport the girls out of his lab so they won't bother him.
** In the episode, "Dexter is Dirty", Dexter starts yelling at Dee Dee after she fails to help him up while he's laminated. She starts to look sad and imagine herself out in the snow, but it turns out she's picturing herself sledding down a mountain, and this gives her the idea to use Dexter as a sled.
** In the episode "Coupon for Craziness", Dee Dee is about to give Dextor (Dexter's hyper counterpart) a cookie, but he says he's not allowed to have sweets. Dee Dee says, "Oooooooohhh!" That means...she gives Dextor the other cookie!
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'', Timmy's parents congratulate him on being a local hero after he pretends to capture the Goatnapper, leading to this exchange.
-->'''Timmy:''' Uhhh... guys? You'd still love me even if I wasn't a hero, right?\\
''[beat; both parents look at each other]''\\
'''Mom:''' Well of course we would, honey.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'':
** In Slappy Squirrel's debut cartoon, "Slappy Goes Walnuts", Doug the Dog sets out a xylophone for Slappy to play that's set to explode when she hits a specific note. Slappy decides to play "Those Endearing Young Charms", and the viewer is set to believe she'll keep hitting the wrong note, which is [[XylophoneGag a joke that's been done to death]] in the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' franchise. The thing is, she actually ''does'' hit the correct note, and the explosion ends up going off on Doug the Dog.
--->'''Slappy:''' [[LampshadeHanging Old gag, new twist]].
** One Hip Hippos sketch has the hippos in an American Gladiator spoof. After a number of contests with an athletic duo, the score is tied (the hippos' lack of athletic ability in some events made up for by their bulk giving them unexpected advantages in other events). The final tiebreaking event is to eat their way across a swimming pool full of beans and hot dogs. Easy hippo win, right? Their opponents sure think so and are ready to throw in the towel, but decide to give it a shot anyway. [[spoiler:And the human opponents win easily, when the hippos deliberately throw the event. They're the ''[[{{Hipster}} Hip]]'' Hippos, remember? They'd never eat something as common as beans and hot dogs.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'': At the beginning of the episode, "Just Desserts", the narrator talks about how Townsville is safe from crimes. He talks to a random guy who acts like he doesn't know what keeps Townsville safe from crime while the Powerpuff Girls are behind him playing. The narrator tells the man to look behind him, but it turns out he was actually referring to a prison further out in the distance.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies2010'' episode, "Beauty is Only Fur Deep", Champ tells the Pound Puppies the story about how he lost his fur and his self-esteem in a flashback. As he tells the story, he keeps coming to parts where he could have possibly lost his fur. For each one, Niblet interrupts by saying, "Is that how you lost your fur?" but it wasn't. It turns out he lost his fur...from eating a piece of boysenberry pie! (He's allergic to boysenberries.)
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', incest is teased between CreepyTwins Eska and Desna when its mentioned that [[ThereIsOnlyOneBed there is only one bed]] in the hotel room they are staying in. Eska clarifies that it is not a mistake. "Desna sleeps in the tub."
* In ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales'' as the dragons are searching for Max and Emmy who got shrunken by shrinking violets. As the search continues...
-->'''Wheezie:''' AHA!\\
'''Zak:''' Aha?\\
'''Cassie & Ord:''' Aha?\\
'''Wheezie:''' A purple button! I just LOOOVE purple! And I especially LOOOVE purple buttons!\\
'''Zak:''' I thought ya found Max and Emmy!\\
'''Wheezie:''' Oops. Sorry...
* Done in the bloopers sketches on ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken''.
** A man tries to fix a lawnmower while his wife tells him not to hurt himself and that it would be better for a mechanic to do the job. The man tells her he can do it if she would just be quiet. Then their daughter announces she's pregnant.
** Footage is shown of the actors playing Cylons in ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|1978}}'' having trouble moving around in their costumes. In the final segment one Cylon moves slowly toward a banana peel on the floor… only to be hit by a wrecking ball.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/MarthaSpeaks'' episode, "Dogs from Space", Martha opens a refrigerator and takes out bread, Bologna, pickles, ketchup, mustard and mayo and says, "I know exactly what to make out of this!" What do you think she's going to make? A sandwich, right? No! She makes what she calls "a delicious mess"!
** Also, in the episode, "Martha Smells", while Martha is trapped in a box, she sees Weaselcraft and Pablum talking about a talking dog they are trying to catch, and she says to herself: "I feel bad about that talking dog they are after...Wait a minute!...I gotta finish that peanut butter!"
** In the episode, "Dog Fight", while Alice and T.D. are quarreling with each other, Martha interrupts the fight by yelling, "Stop it!" Alice and T.D. stop thinking Martha was talking to them, but she was actually talking to a flea that she was trying to scratch.
* In the ''WesternAnimationWesternAnimaton/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' episode "The C Team", Alvin and his brothers meet Mr. T having lunch at a diner. At one point, his food flies off the table he is sitting at. Theodore grabs his bag of French fries and is about to eat them when Mr. T butts in and says, "You can't eat those fries!" Theodore gets into his usual apologetic mood until Mr. T follows up what he said with: "...without ketchup."
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'':
** The episode "The Return of Slade" brings up the titular villain in the first few minutes, then according to a transition card he's defeated offscreen over the course of 3 episodes and a made-for-TV movie.
** The episode "Batman vs. Teen Titans: Dark Injustice" was almost entirely this, for the episode was about April Fools Day pranks.
* Overlaps with BlackComedyBurst in the ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' episode "Are You Happy Now?", where in one scene it looks like Squidward is about to hang himself, then it turns out that he's just hanging a birdcage.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'' episode, "The Day I Was Born", Cow asks multiple people about the day she was born, but each tells her a completely different story. It turns out the Red Guy told her the true story. The story is shown in flashback with Chicken and his Dad in the waiting room at a hospital, and they hear the Red Guy yelling, "Push! Push!" You would think Mom is in there giving birth to Cow, but then suddenly Mom appears right next to Dad asking what's going on in the room! The Red Guy was actually telling himself to push the cart he was wheeling out which Cow was laying on.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'':
** In the Pilot, Stumpy [[MakesSenseInContext needs to touch a wall before Quack Quack can get there]], when he sees a pair of roller skates lying next to a chainsaw and gets an idea. Instead of using the roller skates to skate to the wall, he activates the chainsaw and puts it on the ground so it drags him along.
** In one episode, [[NotSoHarmlessVillain Olaf]] captures Kaeloo and Mr. Cat, and tells them to "prepare to suffer"... before [[HollywoodToneDeaf turning on some music and singing]].
** In the episode "Let's Play Happy Rotter", the cast read a book series called "Happy Rotter" (an obvious parody of Literature/HarryPotter). They decide to role-play as the characters, and Kaeloo and Stumpy get into a fight over who gets to play the (male) lead.
-->'''Stumpy:''' Happy Rotter is a ''boy''!
-->'''Kaeloo:''' So?
-->'''Stumpy:''' And [[{{Hermaphrodite}} you're a...]]

* Farmer's Insurance has a series of commercials showing some of the more bizarre things they've covered. One of these is referred to as a "Truck-cicle". We see a reenactment of the incident which shows two men ice fishing. One of them parks his truck on the ice and climbs out with a massive drill, implying he causes the truck to break through the ice by improper drilling. Instead, he puts his foot through the ice while carrying the drill and causes the truck to break through from the crack that forms from that.

** In the same episode, Sam and Max find Flint Paper in Stinky's Diner ready to eat a plate of spaghetti. If Max uses his physic abilities, he predicts Flint will be collapse onto the table dead with a hatchet in his head. The solution is to give him a miner's hat and get him to wear it while eating. The player's reasoning would most likely be that the hatchet hits the hat without harming Flint. What actually happens is that the light on the hat illuminates the peanuts in the tomato sauce and he gets up to complain, causing the hatchet to miss him.
