** Next, the game changed into ''The Leakiest Sink'', a fairly poor take-off of ''TheWeakestLink'', where two players would have to take turns sitting inside the booth while a celebrity guest pulled one of six plugs apparently attached to it somehow. One of these plugs would start up the gunge tank, so the danger increased as the game went on and the chance of picking the 'right' (wrong?) one got higher.

* ''Series/ThirtyRock'' subverted this in one episode where [[TinaFey Liz Lemon]]'s old classmates [[spoiler: planned to "Carrie" her at their school reunion. They were convinced not to by Jack Donaghy. Then double subverted after it's revealed Jack isn't the classmate they mistook him to be, causing them to try it on Liz again. It misses, but she's naturally pissed at the attempt and decides to quit trying to make amends with them.]]

** The show was a big hit when it aired on {{Nickelodeon}}, which adopted the slime part into... well, everything. Especially in TheNineties. To this day, various in-studio shows and events take joy in dumping green stuff on people.
* ''Series/ICarly'': Nevel, with "guacamole" that resembles good ol' {{Nickelodeon}} green slime.

* ''Series/AllThat'', being a {{Nickelodeon}} comedy, embraced this repeatedly, but particularly memorable was a combined {{lampshade}}/ [[SubvertedTrope double subversion]]: A baker has sent the cast a roomful of cream pies, far more than they could possibly eat, in appreciation of the show. Several cast members ask pointedly what to do with the excess pies, when their ButtMonkey stage manager walks in. Someone decides to bring the extra pies to the zoo for the zebras. Stage manager calls them on it, and one explains that the baker had also sent over a large cake explicitly for throwing at him.

* Almost every episode of ''WorldOfQuest'' features the Prince being covered in something. Usually three or more times.

* ''FanboyAndChumChum'' characters are prone to this, but especially Fanboy. He has been sneezed on, covered with Frosty Freezy Freeze, gotten a PieInTheFace several times, been assaulted with eggs, had the school cafeteria food all over him and once his costume got so dirty it actually ''came to life''.

& The music video for singer/songwriter Lisa Hannigan's song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYdPtcx-4mo "Knots"]] starts with her singing cheerfully in a white dress, playing a white ukulele against a white background. Then a hand comes in and sprays paint on her dress. Then more paint gets sprayed on her. Then more. By two minutes into the song her dress is completely multi-coloured -- and then they start spraying paint in her face. Because they could only do it in one take, they couldn't stop, and she admitted that while making the video was great fun, it wasn't easy singing while completely blinded with paint.
