* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' has a single example in the episode "Beat With a Schtick". Bloo [[PoorCommunicationKills misunderstands something the newest resident says]] and concludes that he wants to beat him up. Consequently, Bloo tries everything he can to leave the house and takes it UpToEleven by settling for expulsion. He confesses everything he'd ever done including putting hot sauce into everyone's food and framing "Jolly Buttons". Mr Herriman is shocked by this and explains that they had Jolly deported. Bloo says "I know. He still sends me postcards" He then holds up a note composed with letters cut from a magazine. It reads [[ImpliedDeathThreat "I Will Get You."]]

We see her stitching it together on a sewing machine! Later when Roger is on the phone with the police, he says that he's certain it's Cruella because "who else sends ransom notes that are dry clean only?"

* OlderThanTelevision: The original example was from the ''Literature/SherlockHolmes'' novel ''Literature/TheHoundOfTheBaskervilles'', where it wasn't a ransom note, but a warning. Holmes was clever enough to identify the newspapers that had been chopped up, by the font, and the type of scissors used to do it.

One word in the message was hand-written, because the word 'moor' is not likely to be found in the typical London newspaper, and the sender apparently didn't think of cutting out individual letters.
