* On ''Series/AdamRuinsEverything'', one of these (a parody of the Vlasic pickles mascot) appears to Emily (who has already had her baby), and hands her a black rock painted with the words "Postpartum Depression." He also hands one to Murph, explaining that men can get PPD as well.

For those wondering exactly how storks became associated with pregnancy: The tradition apparently started in VictorianBritain. The White Stork was considered a symbol of happiness, fertility, and prosperity. Storks were known to nest on chimney tops in England, so the mythology of storks dropping baby humans down the chimney was made quite quickly. (It must also be mentioned that the surgical masks worn by early gynecologists gave them a vaguely storklike face. Best [[{{Squick}} not to think about that too hard]]...)

* In the animated film ''WesternAnimation/{{Storks}}'', after delivery storks decided on doing a less difficult job, they wound up going into the online delivery business. Part of what motivated the storks into giving up the job was a stork going rogue and trying to keep a baby, which led to the homing beacon being destroyed. The plot revolves around what happens when the girl they've been forced to raise and the stork supposed to fire her accidentally reactivates the old Baby Making Machine and have to get a new baby girl to her home. The storks have also updated their delivery mechanisms and do pods rather than swaddles.

[[spoiler:Events ultimately lead to them going back to their original mission of baby delivery, complete with the classic swaddles.]]

* Disney's ''Disney/{{Dinosaur}}'' actually did this with a Pterodactyl. Who apparently found Aladar's egg floating in a river after an Oviraptor accidentally dropped it while stealing it from Aladar's ''real'' mother.

* In UsefulNotes/TheNetherlands, aside from the universally-known stork story, there's the story that babies grow / sprout out of curly kale, [[note]]Yes, ''that'' kale - the vegetable that has been a health food rage in the Western world since the mid-'2010s; ironically in the Netherlands it's an ''old-fashioned'' food.[[/note]] or sometimes cauliflower.

* There was a Creator/{{Disney}} animated short involving an ImagineSpot by Franchise/MickeyMouse about getting married to Minnie Mouse. He's out watering the garden, and a DeliveryStork drops a baby down the chimney. Then more arrive and do the same. He rushes in with Pluto to find Minnie lying in their bed, surrounded by a large number of baby mice, much to Mickey's dismay. Perhaps this is actually the real reason why Mickey should've stayed an uncle.
