** Krusty's first TV appearance on a ''Tracy Ullman Show''-era ''Simpsons'' short called "The Krusty the Clown Show" sees the clown portrayed as boorish and having a normal voice, wearing normal hair and no face makeup. His over-the-top characteristics were not added until the show was picked up for a series and the season 1 episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS1E12KrustyGetsBusted Krusty Gets Busted]]."

* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' had a parody of this when the old host of the ''Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?'' game show goes crazy after finding out his girlfriend is cheating on him. He drives them to her house and makes them memorize the day they met, the day she said she loved him. The skit ended with him crashing his car and dying.

* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' had a parody of this when the old host of the ''Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?'' game show host Kevin Shinick (voicing himself) goes crazy after finding out his girlfriend is cheating on him. He drives them to her house and makes them memorize the day they met, the day she said she loved him. The skit ended with him crashing his car and dying. This is more amusing when you realize that A. Schinick was actually a writer, creative director, and voice actor for ''Robot Chicken'', and B. Most fans of ''Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego'' disliked ''Where in Time...''', so this dark bit of AdamWesting was well received by those that caught on.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''WesternAnimation/FiremanSam'' special "Alien Alert", we have Buck Douglas, a television presenter of the TV show "Alien Quest". Lots of fans love him, even Norman Price, and want to be on his show. But, when fans are not around and/or he's off screen, [[spoiler: he dresses up like an alien and remote-controls toy UFO's, starts fires (both by accident), and sends a huge space signal to outer space to surprise everyone in Pontypandy. Although, he's not that mean, he's not even against "The Hero Next Door", nor his fans. He feels sorry for what he has done after Fireman Sam caught him and showed his fans that he's a ''mean person''.]]

* The ''Series/{{Dinosaurs}}'' episode "Georgie Must Die", essentially a TakeThat toward ''Series/BarneyAndFriends'', portrayed Georgie the Hippo as a greedy scumbag [[BitchInSheepsClothing using the persona of a kindhearted kids' show host as his cover]] who only cares about [[OnlyInItForTheMoney getting lots of money from his merchandise]].

* ''Webcomic/PerryBibleFellowship'' did a comic about a Depressed Kids Show Host: [[http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y204/MmeGiryPwnsYou/PBF247-Catch_Phrase.jpg "Gee Golly Jeepers!"]] Notably, it is no longer on the original PBF site.

Added DiffLines:

* ''It's the Tie!'' had this as the punchline for the strip "Glossophobia", where a man nervous about speaking in front of the audience considers and heartily accepts the option of [[ImagineTheAudienceNaked pretending that his audience is naked]], the final panel revealing that he's to perform [[Series/BarneyAndFriends in a dinosaur costume]] and that his audience consists of children.

* ''{{Viz}}'' has the character of "Roger Mellie, the Man on the Telly," a foul-mouthed alcoholic and perverted TV presenter who in several strips lands a job on kids' TV and inevitably reverts to type in front of the horrified audience.

* There were plans for a sequel for William Lustig's ''Film/{{Maniac}}'', which was supposed to follow such a character but it was scrapped due to its main star's untimely death. It sounded like a remake of ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070572/ The Psychopath]]'' (aka ''An Eye for an Eye''). A short promotional video for the film is [[http://www.imdb.com/videoplayer/vi1519911193?ref_=tt_pv_vi_aiv_1 here.]]
