* An episode of ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'' had Josh be repeatedly mistaken for a wanted criminal after playing one in a dramatization on TV, whose name was the "Theater Thug". This results in him getting beaten up and arrested repeatedly, to the point where he's in the same theater AS THE ACTUAL THEATER THUG and is beaten up and arrested while the real guy makes off with the theater's money. To make it even more of a MiscarriageOfJustice, he was being ''attacked'' by the Theater Thug before [[PoliceAreUseless the police come over and arrest him!]]

** "Too Many Roscos," where an experienced bank robber named Woody has a facelift so he can exactly resemble Rosco. He does this as he and his two associates run the patrol car driven by the real Rosco off the road and into a lake, kidnap him and allow the community to believe that the real Rosco to be presumed drowned. After the community begins mourning the presumably dead sheriff, "Rosco" reappears, much to the joy of the community. Although there are obvious clues that this man is an impostor--namely, by bungling simple facts while remembering in detail an expected armored car delivery to Hazzard Bank--the community is fooled, and this allows Woody and his friends to pull off a seemingly easy bank robbery. Had they stopped there...
