** In ''Porky Pig's Feat'', Daffy and Porky use one to try and escape a hotel without paying. The hotel manager catches them at the bottom and gives Porky a hotfoot that sends them flying back up the Bedsheet Ladder to their room. Daffy stops along the way to ogle in a window and wolf whistle -- going down and again going back up.

* In ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' when the pigs took over the show and threw Kermit and Fozzie into the boiler room. Fozzie suggested they escape by tying sheets together and going out the window. Kermit then pointed out a flaw in Fozzie's plan: What window?

* ''Literature/{{Rapunzel}}'': "Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your [[RapunzelHair hair]]!" Slightly unusual in that the braid was also the only way ''up'' the tower, and it was intended for other people to access said tower. The main illustrations that show her wrapping it about some kind of hook are wise. The hair could probably take the weight; it's keeping the weight from unrooting your hair that's the problem, and a hook would do it. Creator/TheBrothersGrimm have the prince bringing her stuff to make a replacement rope when she gives the game away. Apparently he never thought of just bringing ''a rope''.

Note: This was tested by the ''Series/MythBusters'' and ''confirmed'' -- Grant was able to climb down a 14-story building using a rope made from prison bedsheets. Kari did it with [[RapunzelHair human hair plaited into a rope]], while Tory did the same thing with ''toilet paper''.
