* The {{Sliders}} standard excuse for why they don't understand customs (or cutting edge technology) on the various worlds they slide into is that they're from Canada. It usually works, with the locals assuming Canada is just that different.
* {{Castle}} wants to travel to Montreal alone to investigate [[spoiler: his recent two-month-long disappearance]]; Beckett insists that it might be too dangerous. Castle (played by Canadian Nathan Fillion) responds with "It's Canada! How dangerous could it be?" to fellow Canadian Stana Katic.

* ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'' averts this for the most part. They got the usual mounties whenever they visit there but otherwise not too many sterotypical tropes. In an exception, an early episode named "Johnny Gets Mooned" features two Canadian astronauts that end almost every sentence with "Eh?". The flag the flies in front of Johnny's school is the provincial flag of Ontario. Considering some of the in-universe characteristics of the City of Porkbelly, it might be a case of ArtisticLicenseGeography.

* The ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' series, based in a surreal, video game-like version of Toronto, averts most of these stereotypes (it should be noted the author, Bryan Lee O'Malley, is Canadian himself), except for the occasional "eh." Also, American characters' dialogue will be spelled with words like "flavor," while the Canadian cast says "flavour."
** [[Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld The film]], with American audiences in mind, lampshades this trope in the intro, saying that the story takes place "In the faraway land of Toronto, Canada". There are plenty of jokes thrown in for Canadians, too, though, like the scene of Scott fighting Lucas at [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casa_Loma Casa Loma]], where a Hollywood movie is being filmed. At one point, Scott gets thrown through a backdrop of the New York skyline, tearing a hole over the Empire State Building. Through the hole, the CN Tower can be clearly seen.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'': [[EvilTeacher Crocker's]] Uncle Albert is from Canada, eh?

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' episode ''Test of Time'', [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Billy]], [[HeroicComedicSociopath Mandy]], and [[BlackAndNerdy Irwin]] are studying book reports. Mandy had ''Drums of the American Revolution'', Irwin had ''The Canadian Revolution'', and Billy had ''A Not-So-Brief History of Time''. While Billy was goofing off and not studying at all, Irwin called him on the phone 3 times. The first time, Billy was eating pie and Irwin was dressed as a Mountie. The second time, Billy was watching a monster truck show and Irwin was dressed as a lumberjack. The third time, Billy was taking a bath, and Irwin, oddly enough, instead of wearing an outfit stereotyping Canadian culture, wore a Little Bo Peep outfit.

** Then again, an early episode named "Johnny Gets Mooned" features two Canadian astronauts that end almost every sentence with "Eh?".
** It should be noted that the city of Porkbelly where the Tests live is located in Canada. The flag that flies at Johnny's school? It's the Ontario provincial flag.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'', a top secret Canadian spy [[spoiler: who's actually Joe the Janitor introduced earlier]] ends his explanation speech with "eh", but it's delivery makes it sound like it's mocking the trope.
** Kim also uses the trope earlier in the episode, commenting "Canada, eh?" when she's told that Drakken is in Canada.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Snails in the duo of unicorns Snips & Snails is a good, slightly more subtle example. He speaks at first with a lightened version of the stereotypical accent, to the point where it's ambiguous whether it's a Northeast American one or Stereotypical Canada, Eh? one. Confirmed finally when he in one scene adds the 'Eh?' to one of his sentences in frustration. (Possibly an inside joke as the show is produced in Vancouver)
** He's, of course, voiced by "notorious" Canadian voice actor, Richard Ian Cox. Oddly, this is one of his first roles where he plays up the stereotypical accent, which he doesn't actually have.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' has a pancake restaurant called Paul Bunyan's. Its jingle:

* In the ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' books, Canada is an outright evil place. They're the ones responsible for inhumane genetic experimentation on minorities like the Weapon X program. They've put mutants in concentration camps and gassed them, including women and children. Basically, Marvel Canada = UsefulNotes/NaziGermany.

** {{Wolverine}} of the [=X-Men=] was their first Canadian member, and very proudly so, though he hardly advertises the fact. It's made complex because John Byrne made him Canadian, and Marvel didn't care because at the time, they didn't think he'd be a major character. As his popularity grew, Marvel repeatedly tried to ''retcon'' his history to make him American, with no success. He's now generally recognized as Canadian in the comic.
