* Played with in the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "Legends of the Dark Knight". Three kids, who have been telling stories up to now about how they think Batman is, stumble on [[KillItWIthFire Firefly]] as he's about to torch a place. One of the kids has a homemade BatSignal flashlight, and shines it through a hole in the ceiling... for a few seconds, before the batteries die. Batman arrives a few minutes later anyway, and the kid excitedly thinks Bats saw his signal. A moment later, Batman tells Firefly that he was tracking him and figured out his pattern.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' had their own hotline, but one episode had the Mayor sending a flashing heart signal into the sky. There was even a catchy song about it, "Signal in the Sky" by Apples in Stereo.
** It's TheArtifact: They had it in the original short, before the hotline was invented.
