* In ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' film WesternAnimation/ChannelChasers, one of the BlandNameProduct shows is a WesternAnimation/BluesClues parody called Clint's Hints. The Steve analogue is [[LaughingMad visibly insane.]]

-->'''George''' [''dejectedly'']: Hey, kids. Where y'wanna go? That's right. To Uncle Nutzy's Clubhouse. [[SarcasmMode And boy, oh boy, are we gonna have big fun today. We're gonna have so much fun,]] we'll forget about how miserable we are, and how much life sucks, and how we're all gonna grow old and die someday.\\
'''"Little Weasel" Kid''': I wanna go home!\\
'''George''': Shut up, you little weasel! [''pause''] Okay. Right now, I'd like to show you one of my favorite cartoons. It's a sad, depressing story about a pathetic coyote who spends every waking moment of his life in the futile pursuit of a sadistic roadrunner who ''mocks'' him and ''laughs'' at him as he's repeatedly ''crushed'' and ''maimed''! '''HOPE YOU'LL ENJOY IT!!'''

* ''Uramichi Onii-san'' loves to play with this trope. He's a miserable dreg outside of work, likes to bully his juniors on the show, and drinks and smokes constantly. On show, he's not much better-- practically all the kids know about his personal issues and he complains about his life on live TV or gives out advice the kids really don't need to be hearing, often to worrying results. The thing is, he actually likes the kids he works with. It's just that life just keeps bleeding into TV.

** Comedian Creator/SoupySales has also been a victim of urban legends fitting this trope, most often those where he supposedly tried to sneak the word "fuck" into his comedy bits on his children's TV show ''Lunch With Soupy Sales''. The most common example is Soupy and Fang reciting the alphabet, but Fang forever identifying the letter "F" as "K," and finally a frustrated Soupy admonishing the puppet, "How comes every time I see 'F,' you see 'K'?" On the other hand, the story about how he once instructed his young viewers to get the "funny green pieces of paper" out of their parents' wallets and purses and send them to him happens to be ''true''.[[note]]* In January 1965 on his morning children's show, Sales suggested to his young viewers that they find the wallets of their sleeping fathers and take out "some of those funny green pieces of paper with all those nice pictures of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Alexander Hamilton, and send them along to your old pal, Soupy, care of WNEW, New York." He also said: "Hey kids, last night was New Year's Eve, and your mother and dad were out having a great time. They are probably still sleeping and what I want you to do is tiptoe in their bedroom and go in your mom's pocketbook and your dad's pants, which are probably on the floor. You'll see a lot of green pieces of paper with pictures of guys in beards. Put them in an envelope and send them to me at Soupy Sales, Channel 5, New York, New York. And you know what I'm going to send you? A post card from Puerto Rico!". The reaction from outraged parents came fast and furious, and WNEW-TV pulled Soupy Sales' program off the air by the following Monday. Anyways, Soupy Sales program resumed broadcasting two weeks later, and his program ran on WNEW for close to another two years. By the way, he only got a few real dollars, along with a lot of Monopoly play money.[[/note]]

* Not officially confirmed, but Italian singer Cristina d'Avena is said to ''hate'' children, despite having a long (since 1982) career in shows with singing children, and as singer/songwriter of cartoon themes [[note]]If you see a cartoon in Italy, there is a 50% chance that the theme is composed, written ''and'' performed by Cristina d'Avena. If it's on a Mediaset channel, chances raise to 90%[[/note]]. It's possibly justified by the fact that her career is exclusively child related: the only other work she's done with music has been Christmas carols, and her only acknowledged acting role has been a cartoon character in a real life short series.

** During the Golden Age of Radio, a legend was created whereby a local children's radio host named Uncle Don uttered the comment, "[[http://www.snopes.com/radiotv/radio/bastards.asp That ought to hold those little bastards!]]" after one of his shows. Uncle Don was the genial grandfatherly type gent who would read a bedtime story for children at 7 p.m. (local time), after which he said a gentle good night ... until the night where after his show he snarled the infamous remark, unaware his radio mike was still on and could clearly pick up his statement; the story goes on to claim that a flood of calls to the radio station's management resulted in Uncle Don's swift cancellation and his dismissal from radio. The legend has been told about many radio and television performers over the course of several decades, and predates Uncle Don's career by a few years.
