* ''VideoGame/TheSecretIslandOfDrQuandary'' begins at a carnival whose three main attractions are a ripoff "fortune teller", a Ferris wheel that's clearly about to fall apart any day now, and a midway game that sucks your soul into a doll and strands you on an island if you win.

* ''SheepInTheBigCity'' had "Oxymoron's Happy Fun Family Park", an amusement park organized by the notoriously incompetent Oxymoron Inc. The park is ''literally'' just an empty, muddy field strewn with trash and broken glass, with the marketing being based on that you're supposed to tailor your own experience at the park - in other words, just running around using your imagination.

* Played with in the ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'' episode "The Carnival of Doctor Kalihari", where the titular carnival is only crappy because a crook and his cronies have taken it over and are using it to fleece people. The Defenders (four of whom are exposed to a shrinking potion, meaning most of the episode is spent trying to obtain the antidote before they shrink away to nothing) eventually return the carnival to its rightful (and honest) owners, who give all of them lifetime passes.

* Thomas Ligotti's short story "The Gas-Station Carnivals" takes place at one. The attractions and rides are miniatures; the hypnotist and sideshow freaks are costumed attendants; and there's an air of oil-soaked dinginess about the whole thing. And then there's the [[NightmareFuel Ringmaster]]...

* ''Firecracker Jim's Family Funtime Carnival'' in {{Brickleberry}} is this trope in spades. Among its more noteable features are games such as "Meth Eating Contests", Whack A Mole with real moles, and a rollercoaster named The Paralyzer, that just comes to a dead stop in the middle of the track.

* The carnival from the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Cow Days" is so bad that the townspeople called Shenanigans on it at the end. "Shenanigans" is apparently a South Park term for chasing the offender out of time while beating them with brooms.

* The title characters of ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' have created several of these as part of Eddy's scams, including "Barnacle Ed's" from "Floss Your Ed". Smile Town in "Here's Mud In Your Ed" is literally just an empty, trash-strewn alleyway behind a cardboard facade to which Eddy tricks Jimmy into paying for entrance.
