* There was an episode of the ''Anime/{{Little Lulu}}'' anime where Wilbur's butler was replaced by a [[DrillSergeantNasty stricter butler]] who anticipated all of the tricks that Lulu and the others were going to pull on him. Finally, they come up with a plan to work together to get rid of the mean butler. One of the tricks involved Tubby stuffing a handkerchief in the tailpipe of the limosine, and when the mean butler checked the tailpipe, the handkerchief came loose and he wound up with a face full of smoke and soot from the tailpipe.

* In the first episode of ''DadsArmy'', while having a discussion of how to take on a tank with improvised weapons, Jones suggests plugging the exhaust with spuds (potatoes). Mainwarrign points out that it wouldn't work because tanks have long, thin exhaust pipes. [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Jones asks why they can't use long, thin spuds.]]

* Happened in ''{{Eastenders}}'', with a potato. A man put it in his enemy's car's tailpipe and sniggered as the car sputtered. He stopped laughing when the pressure ejected the potato into his shop window.

* A variation was used in ''PushingDaisies'': the murderer shoved a potato into the tailpipe of Ned's car to fill the car with exhaust and knock out Ned and Emerson during a stakeout.

Added DiffLines:

* The potato version is used in the ''Literature/JungleDoctor'' story, "Jungle Doctor Pulls A Leg" to prevent a con-man/thief from escaping before the authorities can arrive to arrest him. It works perfectly, possibly because the ancient vehicle wasn't able to generate sufficient compression to push the vegetable out of the exhaust pipe.

** Parodied in the "Trial of the Century" episode of ''ClerksTheAnimatedSeries''. Judge Reinhold (the actor, acting as the courtroom judge) is lured away from Dante's trial by Axel Foley, who "needs (his) help!" - and they spend the evening stuffing bananas in people's tailpipes and watching them stall, but the fun ends when the local grocer reveals that he's ran out of bananas. Then Judge Reinhold wakes up ("No! Axel! Come back!"). "I had that dream again!"

* A clear ShoutOut in the super-short-lived ''WesternAnimation/{{Clerks}} the Animated series'': one episode revolved around spoofing courtroom dramas and featured actor Judge Reinhold as...well, an actual judge: the Honorable Judge Reinhold. The episode became a crazy patchwork of dream sequences, usually ending in a CatapultNightmare for the character having the dream. In Reinhold's dream, his final verdict is interrupted by Detective Axel Foley, the lead character of the ''Film/BeverlyHillsCop'' series, bursting into the courtroom and telling "Billy" he needed his help. (Judge Reinhold played Detective William Rosewood in the 'Film/BeverlyHillsCop'' films). Reinhold eagerly drops his black robe and rushes to Axel's aid. The two spend many happy hours stuffing bananas in tailpipes and laughing as cars malfunction...until the fruit vendor runs out of bananas, at which point it's Reinhold's turn to catapult awake.

* In an episode of ''GoofTroop'', Max and PJ lie to their fathers about joining the baseball team, so they try various methods to keep them from going to the games and finding out the truth. One of those methods is filling Pete's exhaust pipe with cement.

* In a ''WesternAnimation//CodeLyoko'' comic, Odd tries to do this to a bunch of bulldozers pipes. It works as well as one would expect.
