* PlayedForLaughs in ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub''. The members of the Host Club (especially [[UpperClassTwit Tamaki]]) are depicted as well-meaning, but [[ShelteredAristocrat hopelessly out of touch]] with the middle- and lower-classes. For example, they regard instant coffee and instant ramen as interesting novelties, and the Hitachiin brothers mistake Haruhi's description of a kiddie pool for that of an inflatable raft.

* Camden, the setting of ''MyNameIsEarl'' started off as a typical rural-south town. Although it ''did'' have a trailer park (and a few zany characters therein), it wasn't too over the top. By Season 4, it underwent {{Flanderization}} into a bizarre and backwards CloudCuckooland.

* On ''MyNameIsEarl'', Earl is solving an item on his list related to this: taking advantage of [[NaiveEverygirl young women]] from a nearby Amish-like village (which is now facing a shortage of women, seeing as Earl and Randy showed them what they were missing!) The village is described as being ''so'' extremely Luddite that even ''the wheel'' is looked upon as an abomination.

* While AccentuateTheNegative is his general style, [[http://joshreads.com/ Josh Fruhlinger]] (a.k.a. Blog/TheComicsCurmudgeon) seems to reserve a special level of contempt and disdain for the newspaper comic ''{{Pluggers}}'', which typically chronicles the exploits of older, more rural individuals. Each one is rephrased as a way to say that such individuals are, among other things, alcoholics, abusers, morons, or occasionally racists.
** And don't forget all the meth labs and cross burnings in [[SnuffySmith Hootin Holler]]!
** As well as the denizens of [[MarkTrail Lost Forest]] -- which is rather bizarre, since these days, [[GreenAesop over-the-top environmentalism]] is more generally associated with elitist, middle-to-upper-class liberals.

* In the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' {{DLC}} [[DeepSouth 'Point Lookout']], one branch of enemies are... Well, [[RefugeInAudacity grossly exaggerated]] hillbilly stereotypes. They live in run-down wooden shacks. They dress in torn workers' jeans. They are hideously deformed by inbreeding. Their mental capacity has devolved to the point where they can only speak short sentences (in thick dialects, of course) and [[DumbMuscle attack everything that moves]], wielding double-barrel shotguns, [[AxCrazy axes]] and {{shovel|Strike}}. They brew moonshine. [[IAmAHumanitarian They eat people.]] Also, they are registered in the games programming as creatures rather than NPC's
