* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' has them accidentally discovering a new swear word, which they proceed to use constantly. Ms. Keane hears them say it in class and punishes them, but of course [[InnocentSwearing the girls don't know its a bad word]], and when they ask her what they did, she answers, "[[YouKnowWhatYouDid You know perfectly well what you did!]]"

** Anther time, aliens had been making clones of Fred, and ''they'' were acting like assholes and ruining his reputation. It had a happier ending though, because when Fred told them how it happened, Wilma, Barney and Betty simply thought he was under stress from his diet, and said he could go off it. [[DudeWheresMyRespect Fred was upset]], until he realized he [[HellYesMoment was off his diet.]]

There is an interview with one of their subordinates who said that Dimsdale would nail his head to the floor on a regular basis. Part of the joke was that Dimsdale never said why the minion needed to be punished, and the minion never asked, taking it as a given that he must have done ''something'' to deserve such treatment, even though he kept trying to apologize.
