* Used as a joke in an uncut episode of '' Series/{{Friends}}''. It is in an episode (8-15) where Monica does not want to watch a birthing video with Rachel, because Monica already freaked out over the footage. When Rachel remarks that Monica also wants to have kids, Monico answers: "I do. But...the stork is gonna bring mine..."

* In the ''ComicBook/ZipiYZape'' story ''El tonel del tiempo'' ("The barrel of time"), the twins use the titular barrel to time-travel to the day they were born. They come out of the barrel as babies, with the stork holding both of them... and have to pull off one of their shenanigans to prevent their own delivery from suffering a last-minute change of destination.

* The 1958 [[FamousStudios Noveltoon]] short ''Stork Raving Mad'' has a stork trying to delivery a baby on rush delivery, but the baby he's carrying tries to stop him because it doesn't want to do what babies do, like take baths and eat castor oil.

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.
