* ''TheSimpsons'': Bart mentions that due to TV he has a very poor memory and can't remember even 8 seconds in the past. The rest of the family laugh at him. "No, really, I can't! It's a serious problem." They continue to laugh. After a moment he starts to laugh too; then while still laughing he anxiously asks "What are we all laughing about?"

* In one episode of ''Series/RubyGloom,'' Iris tells a joke so she can break the record for "Best Joke." Ruby is the only one who gets it and starts to laugh. Pretty soon, anyone who hears it, including a squirrel and the moon, start to laugh as well. Poe then congratulates Ruby for breaking the record for "Most Contagious Laugh."

* In a cross with TensionBreakingLaughter, ''Film/InAndOut'' has a bunch of old ladies doing a bunch of confessions. "My husband has three testicles!" leads to awkward silence... but once one starts to laugh, everyone joins her.

* During the Dressrosa Arc of ''Manga/OnePiece'', Pica, one of Donquixote Doflamingo's henchmen, is a giant brute that can assimilate stone. His only flaw? His uncharacteristically high-pitched voice. Luffy ends up laughing hysterically when he hears Pica speak, which in turn also gets the group he was unintentionally leading into a charge to join in.
