* 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.

* 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.

* In ''Lupo Alberto'' (set in a WorldOfFunnyAnimals) the character Umperio is this and out of job, and often torments Alberto and Marta because they're his only hope.
** He once tried to change his job, but delivering pizzas the same way he delivered children got him fired due every single customer running at the sight, and he will ''not'' paint himself pink to pass himself as a flamingo and get a job as a dancer in a nightclub (a relative of his did it, and it didn't end well).
