* Parodied in the "DogCity" episode of ''Series/TheJimHensonHour''. From the POV of villain Bugsy Them, we see the two leads through two overlapping circles. Then the camera cuts to a wide shot to reveal that Bugsy isn't looking through binoculars -- he's just holding up a piece of cardboard with two overlapping holes and looking through it.

* Ray's Paragoggles do this in ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', with a few extra graphics added at the sides. One problem, though: Most of the standard VHS releases cut out the "binocular" matte and the graphics, but left the beeping noise intact!

* In the ninth episode of ''Anime/SoRaNoWoTo'', this is adverted when a single circle with crosshairs is seen: the [=POV=] is from Kureha's rifle, rather than Kanata's binoculars.

* The miniseries ''GenerationKill'', which is based on the story of a US Marine Recon unit in Iraq in 2003, uses several forms of these, including the binoculars, rifle/sniper scope, night-vision goggles, and the hand-held video camera. While the series is quite realistic otherwise, they still fall victim to using "two overlapping circles" with the binoculars.
