* Parodied in ''[[Film/TheAddamsFamily Addams Family Values]]''. When Morticia is having a baby, one of the other kids in the waiting room with Wednesday and Pugsley claims ''their'' new sibling came from some bizarre amalgamation of the stork and seemingly every other baby euphemism in existence. Pugsley tells her, "Our parents are having a baby too." Wednesday then deadpans, complete with dramatic zoom-in, "They had ''sex''."

* In the [[WesternAnimation/PixarShorts Pixar short]] that accompanied ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'', ''Partly Cloudy'', this trope was used, and the question as to where the storks obtained the babies they delivered was answered. They are made by clouds, and the lead characters are a cloud prone to making extremely dangerous animals and his partner a very battered stork. The stork the short focuses on has the bad luck to work with a [[DarkIsNotEvil storm cloud]] who only makes dangerous animals. They're good friends, but the friendship gets ''really'' strained after the cloud makes a porcupine. And then Mr. Stormcloud shows off his (unfinished) ''[[EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks shark]]''... and the stork [[TearJerker flies off to another cloud]], [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming only to return with a set of football armor]], [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome ready for more]].

* In ''Theatre/SpringAwakening'' (which takes place in 19th century Germany) Frau Bergmann is still trying to use this story with fourteen-year-old Wendla[[note]]sixteen in TheMusical[[/note]], who becomes frustrated and insists her mother finally explain to her what ''really'' happens. She doesn't, and [[TearJerker this ends very, VERY badly.]]

* The Spanish film ''Adiós, Cigüeña, Adiós (1971)'' (which means "Goodbye, Stork, Goodbye") is all about a gang of Spanish children stoutly defying this trope by working out the facts of life for themselves as they help their friends Arturo and Paloma through their TeenPregnancy. At various points in the movie, several of them express their irritation at adults for thinking they'd actually fall for the old myth about storks bringing babies.
* In [[TheFilmOfTheBook the live-action movie]] of ''Film/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas'', Who babies (and the Grinch) are shown floating into Whoville in baskets. Oddly enough, one Who notes that his new son bears a strong resemblance to his wife's boss...
** There's also a strange (even for him!) Dr. Seuss book and film entitled ''The Hoober-Bloob Highway'' in which new babies are sent from ''space'' down a magical spiral-shaped highway. Before they're sent down, a creature named Hoober-Bloob lets them choose what species they want to be born as, where they'd like to grow up, and then gives them a briefing to prepare them for life. This is undoubtly the most convoluted fictional answer to the question "Where do babies come from?"
* Used as the basis of an in-universe joke in the film ''Film/ChildrenOfMen'':
-->'''Jasper''': So they call together all the great scientists, all the philosophers and thinkers, to ask the big question: why can't women have babies anymore? And all through the talk, there's one man in the corner who says nothing, just eats his dinner in a very loud fashion. And eventually the speakers get tired of the sound of his chewing, so they ask him from the podium, "If you deserve to be here, what do you think the answer is?". And he looks up, and says, "I don't know. But this stork is delicious!"
* The "Every Sperm Is Sacred" scene in Creator/MontyPython's ''[[Film/MontyPythonsTheMeaningOfLife Meaning of Life]]'' starts with a stork dropping a baby down the chimney. Inside the house, it then falls out from under the mother's skirt. The beleaguered woman just glances up and asks one of the dozens of kids to pick it up.
