* Parodied and subverted in an episode of ''Manga/KOn'' it appears the girls are looking on Sawako Yamanaka and following her around the school then we cut to a group shot and it's just them peering through rolled up booklets and they're standing right behind her.

* ''RocketPower'', "Double-O Twistervision" has a scene showing two movie villains through a cutout of two circles, so as to simulate the Binocular Shot.

* Done in {{Freakazoid}}, with the titular character switching from viewpoint to viewpoint to establish where he is... "Palm trees? ''Hula girls!'' Pineapples? ''Hula girls!'' Surfboards? ''Hula girls!'' ''Hula girls!'' ''Hula girls!'' Of course, it all adds up! [[CompletelyMissingthePoint I've landed somewhere in Norway!]]"

* 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.

* Used for a racist gag in the ''WesternAnimation/PrivateSnafu'' short "Censored," in which a Japanese soldier's "slant-eyed" POV through binoculars is portrayed with a butterfly-shaped mask.
