* When WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants made a movie of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, cameraman Patrick left the lenscap on so he wouldn't misplace it.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/HuckleberryHound'' short "Huck of the Irish", Huck is sent to Ireland by the magazine employing him to take pictures of the elusive leprechaun. At the end of the cartoon, Huck reveals to us that despite having been congratulated by his boss for taking the pictures, he forgot to take the lens cap off.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/HuckleberryHound'' short "Huck of the Irish", Huck is sent to Ireland by the magazine employing him to take pictures of the elusive leprechaun. At the end of the cartoon, when he showed the pictures to his boss, they were all black, leading his boss to believe that [[GlamourFailure leprechauns cannot be photographed]]. Huck reveals to us that despite having been congratulated by his boss for taking the pictures, it was actually because he forgot to take the lens cap off.

* ''Literature/AutobiographyOfRed'' has a variant. It describes a sequence of art photos made by the main character, Geryon, one of which is just a shot of his pants leg and shoe. This is because another character saw he was about to take an ill-advised photo of some soldiers and pushed the camera out of sight of them at the last second. Geryon apparently decided to ThrowItIn.

* Happens on ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', when Dee Dee takes photos of his lab and plans to show it to their mom. Fortunately for him, his lab is barely seen due to Dee Dee's fingers being in the way. Unfortunately, Dexter had just gone through an entire JamesBond {{homage}} episode to get the photos, which makes Dexter's adventure a ShaggyDogStory (unless you count him taking down a cruel boss at the photo lab).
