* ''When the Eds come across a cursed boomerang in an episode of WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'', they eventually manage to throw it into the distance. It comes right back with enough force to pin them all to a tree branch. Interestingly, it was the first point in the episode where the boomerang actually returned to the thrower at all.
