* An episode of ''SpinCity'' had Mike voluntarily don a fat suit, at first just to prove that big people wouldn't have a hard time with the new state-of-the-art washrooms at city hall (it doesn't work), but then to see how it affected his everyday life.

* Subverted in ''TheSarahSilvermanProgram'' where Sarah gets in an argument if it's harder to be black or Jewish. She then decides to dress in blackface and try doing black things, while the black man she argued with puts on a fake nose, a yarmulke, and a t-shirt that says "I <3 Money", in order to try being Jewish. Both of them face scorn and hatred from the public for their offensive costumes. However, they both think their disguises are perfect and mistake the hatred they receive as actual prejudice against black and Jewish people respectively.

* In a ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' sketch, EddieMurphy [[MasterOfDisguise disguised himself]] as a white man (Mr. White). He discovered that white people give each other things. First the newstand worker encouraged him to just take a newspaper without paying, once a black customer left. When he went to a bank to ask for a loan with no collateral or credit, the black bank worker was ready to refuse him until a white worker excused him and instead offered Mr. White as much money as he liked "Pay it back whenever you want. Or don't. We don't care." And when he rode on a bus, as soon as the only black person on board left the driver pulled out secret wine bottles and all the passengers began partying.

* Variation: an episode of ''BoyMeetsWorld'' does this with Shawn doing "Chick Like Me" to see if girls really do suffer from as much sexual harassment as they claim. It ends with him decking the JerkAss who kept making unwanted advances toward him on their date. "[[AndThisIsFor That's for every girl I've ever known!]]"

* It's a well-known fact that {{Superman}}'s pal ComicBook/JimmyOlsen makes a disturbingly attractive woman when he dresses in drag to go undercover. When he does it in the SilverAge, though, don't be surprised if the [[AnAesop Aesops]] he learns are more along the lines of "it can be exhausting getting hit on constantly" than "the glass ceiling is unfair."
