* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' features a bunch of criminals finding a way to pass time in the local jail by grooving out and starting a somber jail tune together. They start humming, then finger snapping, then lead up for one person to play a harmonica solo. The guy can't play the harmonica at all, and completely whiffs, but the others continue grooving to the mood.

** In the season three episode "Jakovasaurous"."Jakovasaurous" which opens with the boys out camping, and Cartman playing a calm little tune on a harmonica. He then introduces a new song he just wrote; "I Hate You Guys" (which uses the opening chords from Bad to The Bone)

* Happens in ''JohnnyBravo'' when Johnny becomes mayor (due to a bizarre clause in the town charter that says that the village idiot become mayor if the mayor and the town council become incapacitated by bad tuna) and drafts a law saying that it's now illegal for nerdy dweebs to be seen in public, leading to Carl getting tossed in prison. Cue him playing a harmonica in a jail cell with a pissed-off cellmate looking on.

When various characters are trapped or held captive (say, during a jail scene) the harmonica may be played, as BackgroundMusic if not by an actual character. It's also done in isolation, such as being stranded or lost in the wilderness. Or just camping or boredom, which borderline qualifies as the previous. Sometimes associated with WildWest settings.
