* Officer Mike Brikowski from ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Cop Out" is a jerk from the start, who's fired after falling asleep on the job, and blames the Girls for it, thinking he's being fired because the Chief wants to downsize because of them. After trying and failing to get rid of them (and his plan foiled by more honest cops) he claims this was a story of a "good cop gone bad", Blossom disagrees, calling him a "bad cop gone worse".
