* ''Series/GoodLuckCharlie'': The parents make a deal with their neighbor: If they cut down their tree she will agree to bring her noisy dog in at night. The two oldest kids, Teddy and PJ are had a treehouse when they were kids and they want their kid sister to have the same experience, so they are against it. In the end, the parents decide not to have it cut down, only for the tree to end up falling down. This actually happened ''twice''.

Then it turns out the annoying dog didn't belong to said neighbor; it was a BatmanGambit just to get them to get rid of the tree. This actually happened ''twice''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheWire'' has a rather cynical version in the opening of the third season. The whole neighborhood gathers to watch the demolition of some high-rise housing projects. Most people are glad to see them go, even those who grew up there, because they had been a focal point for some of the worst drug and violent crime in the city. Small-time dealer Poot, however, expresses sadness and nostalgia, mainly because that was where he lost his virginity. His friend Bodie mocks him for his AnythingThatMoves reputation, and Bodie says the real tragedy is that they're about to lose a prime drug market.
-->'''Bodie:''' Man, why didn't you say? They probably wouldn't be tearing this tower down now. They could put a big-ass sign in the front. "Here's where Malik Carr first got his dick wet."

Compare SavingTheOrphanage and CommunityThreateningConstruction where it's more than someone's childhood memories being destroyed.

destroyed. DoomedHometown is an even broader version, largely used to boot the hero on his way to a life of adventure.

* Played with in ''GrossePointeBlank''. John Cusack's character returns to his home town to find that his old house has been razed and a convenience store put in its place. He then helps demolish ''that'' building when an attempt is made on his life.

* One of the ''{{Film/Beethoven}}'' sequels has the family keeping the dog go on a roadtrip with the father attempting to relive his (heavily NostalgiaFilter|ed) childhood trip. Disaster ensues (criminals follow them, one of the parks was taken over by a Japanese company, the RV loses its windshield...) Towards the end the dad breaks down since the trip wasn't that great the first time either (their dog was carsick).

* ''Series/MadMen'' has an episode highlighting how the demolition of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pennsylvania_Station_(former_building) old Penn Station]] to make way for Madison Square Garden was seen as this by many New Yorkers. Don, who's from Central Pennsylvania, and a few others who aren't from New York can't bring themselves to care as much as those who were raised in the city.
