* ''Series/TheGoodies'' did an episode spoofing ArthurCClarke's ''Mysterious World''. Tim Brooke-Taylor & Co go into the Canadian Rockies in search of mysterious creatures, only to find that Graham Garden is faking their existence (including the inevitable spoof on the Patterson-Gimlin Film, which is given away by the zipper that Graham has to undo to take a piss). Eventually one of Tim's feet swells up to enormous size due to him constantly walking around steep slopes, and he has to flee into the wild (wearing a furry coat to keep himself warm) to prevent everyone who sees him [[DieLaughing laughing themselves to death]] over the sight of his Big Foot.

* ''FanFic/TheMansionverse'': Just like the ghosts of the Mansion, the Yetis of the ''Expedition Everest'' and ''Matterhorn Bobsleds'' rides are real in this continuity instead of mere animatronics.

* Creator/HPLovecraft short story ''Literature/TheWhispererInDarkness'', the Mi-Go (alien crustaceans from Pluto) inspired the legend of the Abominable Snowman. Somehow.

* Creator/HPLovecraft short story ''Literature/TheWhispererInDarkness'', the Mi-Go (alien crustaceans from Pluto) have hidden outposts in several remote parts of the Earth, including one in the Himalayas, where sightings of them inspired the legend of the Abominable Snowman. Somehow.("Mi-Go", although it has been adopted by the fandom to refer to the aliens, is actually just a Tibetan word for the Abominable Snowman, and is used only in that context in the original story.)

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'':
** Some versions of the Monster Manual include Yeti as potential encounters.
** Oddly enough, even in a world with dragons and vampires, Sasquatches are still mysterious and elusive, and the supplemental book ''Mystery Monsters Revisited'' offers pointers on how to keep these creatures -- along with related monsters like the mothman and Nessie-type lake monsters -- appropriately mysterious.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/CampLazlo'' episode "Radio Free Edward", two yetis raid the radio station, sending poor Edward cowering in a corner.

However, they both resemble sasquatches more, they're portrayed with brown fur rather than white fur (which is more in line with real-life sightings), and both are calm intellectuals who love rock 'n roll music. Another episode had one yeti fearfully asking another if campers were real.

Tall hairy humanoids who maintain a furtive existence in various remote corners of the world. "Bigfoot" and "Sasquatch" are different names for essentially the same entity, whose (ahem) stomping grounds are mostly in the [[TheOtherRainforest northwestern corner]] of the United States and the southwestern corner of Canada. The "Yeti" or "Abominable Snowman" is a variety found high in the [[TheShangriLa Himalayan Mountains]], commonly depicted (whether due to associations with familiar Arctic animals like the polar bear, or just the "snowman" association) with white fur in fiction, although the local legends described it with red to brown hair.[[note]]Bigfoot with white fur, however, have been spotted in Pennsylvania.[[/note]] Other lesser known varieties turn up in world-wide folklore and history under an assortment of names, such as the "Skunk Ape" of the swamps of the ''[[DeepSouth southeastern]]'' United States.
