* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}''. When the team travels to West Virginia to meet Ray's brother Randy, they run afoul of a local sheriff who seemingly checks off every trait of a corrupt law officer, trying to kill Randy to steal his pot farm. It turns out he's actually a ByTheBookCop honestly trying to bring Randy in for breaking the law.

* ''Disney/RobinHood'': The Sheriff of Nottingham, who has a Southern accent despite the film taking place in England. Presumably the script team heard the word "sheriff"[[note]]which means something somewhat different in Britain, by the way[[/note]] and decided to stick to what they knew. See also Friar Tuck, who sounds like a Deep South PreacherMan stereotype, albeit the heroic GoodShepherd variety.

* ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'': [[spoiler: [[BigBad Lotso]]]] runs [[CrapsaccharineWorld Sunnyside]] with an iron fist. Since this is ''Toy Story'' the most "hick" he can display is the accent, but he's got "corrupt" to spare.
* Averted in ''Disney/TheRescuers''. The film has a location named Devil's Bayou, which could be located in Louisiana or Texas. Either way, it is a swamp with alligators in it. The swamp folks living there seem to have some hillbilly qualities, like Luke who drinks strong liquor that turns out to be gasoline. However, they turn out to be rather friendly, and actually aided in the rescue of Penny from Medusa, Snoops, Brutus and Nero.
