* In WebVideo/SuburbanKnights, WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob was unable to use a whip for his IndianaJones costume, due to customs officers taking it off him on the way there. He ends up using a belt to compensate.

* Just like in the comics version, Granddad of ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' does/threatens this often...Seeing his IndianaJones-esque skills with a belt, you can't blame Riley for freaking and running like hell.

* In at least one episode of ''TheAndyGriffithShow'', specifically, "Mr. Mc Beevee." Opie is accused of stealing a quarter, and refuses to concede that Mr. Mc Beevee (a telephone lineman, who gave the coin to Opie) is imaginary, and Andy makes an implied threat that if Opie doesn't bend, he could face a whipping. The incident is averted when Andy decides he needs to believe his son.

* Subverted in ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle''. Lois calmly asserts that she will spank Malcolm if he does not remain grounded and stay on his cot, who was objecting as they were having to sleep in cots in a school gym (the neighboorhood was evacuated because of a chemical spill) and the punishment was not really appliable. When Malcolm disobeys her, she puts him over her knee, everybody else in the gym watching...And she gives him a light tap. The purpose of the "spanking" was not to punish him with pain, but with ''embarrassment''. This ends up backfiring as the soldiers overlooking the whole evacuation throw her out, because the other families thought she was going crazy.

* In ''GetOnTheBus'', Flip tells a story about the time he tried out for his school's track team against his mother's wishes. She showed up at the tryouts with a belt so thick nobody could actually wear it, and, well... let's just say Flip hates wearing belts to this day.
* In ''RockNRolla'', in a flashback, we briefly see Lenny Cole getting ready to take his belt to his rebellious son, the future [[TitleDrop rock'n'rolla]] Johnny Quid.

[[folder:Comedy]]
* Cited by many Black stand-up comedians. {{Sinbad}} even had a routine wherein his mother turned into a superhero for the express purpose of catching him and giving him a whupping. It was for talking back to her (which you ''did not do'' with your parents back in the day) during lawn cutting day, and then turning around while she was reprimanding him. She beat him so bad, it was Monday when he woke up.
* Creator/BillCosby referred to this in many of his stand-up routines, including his mother's threat to "knock the black off of him".
** His infamous routine "To My Brother Russell, Whom I Slept With" has him detail their father threatening Bill and his brother with '[[NoodleImplements The Belt]].' Said belt is described as "nine feet long, eight feet wide, and it had hooks on it that would rip the meat off your body if it ever hit you".
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nn5jlrxcpkI Here's]] one from a comedian named Russell Peters. "Somebody's gonna get a hurt real bad," indeed.
* DoubleSubverted by comedian Katt Williams:
-->''"Look, I know all comics come on stage and say you need to beat your kids, but as a father, let me just say publicly that maybe we should stop beating our kids... [[CrossesTheLineTwice publicly]]."''
* Pretty common with a lot of ethnic groups, especially Irish. Creator/DenisLeary:
-->''"Hey, my dad used to beat the shit out of me, and looking back I'm glad he did. And I'm looking forward to beating the shit out my kids. Aren't you?"''
** (Leary's routines from ''after'' he became a father make it clear his kids have got him totally wrapped around their fingers.)
* Rex Navarette would fondly recall the usage of his mother's '''toe''' on him in Church.
* Steve Geyer recalled how his mother would tell him to bring her something to spank him with. At first, he would bring "a ''belt'' with a ''buckle'' on it", but eventually wised up and started bringing her sheets of notebook paper (don't laugh, he still has paper cut scars back there). Then she moved on to Hot Wheels tracks.
-->'''Steve:''' And then, one day, I thought to myself, "Steve, get a clue, she's spanking you... with your own toys?!" Yeah, glad I never got that wood-burning set I wanted, though.
* One black comic mentioned that her mom once spanked her with a wet towel for lack of anything better. "My ass said 'Motel 6' for a week."
* It also happens with redneck stand-up comics. Creator/JeffFoxworthy stated that getting a "time out" in his family meant that "our dad would take time out of his busy day to blister our butts!"
* Creator/BillEngvall, who states that there's nothing like "the sound of a belt clearing belt loops".
* Russell Peters did a routine about the time he tried to defy this trope. He'd gone over to a friend's house and seen how he talked back to his parents. When asked, the boy told him that they couldn't touch him because of child services. The comedian then imitates the boy upon returning home (responding to being nagged about chores with "fuck you dad"). His father, naturally, is less than impressed, and demands he front up for punishment. The comedian then tells his father that if he touches him he'll call child services. His dad's response? "Let me get you the phone." The father points out that there's a 23 minute gap between the call being made and someone arriving at the house, and that in that time, "somebody gonna get a hurt real bad."
* Christian comedian Mark Lowry said that when you heard the sound of his dad's belt flying through belt loops "you knew ''JUDGEMENT had come!!''
* DoubleSubverted by Creator/LouisCK in a routine where he rants about how ridiculous corporal punishment is. "Kids are the only people it's okay to hit! They're the most defenseless, and they're the only people it's okay to hit!."
* Dylan Moran once quipped about his disappointment in the corporal punishment laws, saying how that there are only so many ways you can say things to a child before going over to "have an encounter."
--> "And I was rather saddened by this, I used to '''bound''' home from work to strike my children!"

* ''TheBoondocks'': There's a reason why Granddad's CatchPhrase is "Boy, where's my belt?!"

to:

* ''TheBoondocks'': Nick Fury does this to a corrupt military general in an issue of ''ComicBook/ThePunisherMAX''. To explain why, the general had put together a cell of middle eastern terrorists and sent them on a plane, which they were to hijack. The plane was then blown up by the Russians, killing the US funded terrorists and the innocent people aboard. Don't worry, he and his associates get a better punishment for it later.
* Any issue of ''ComicBook/TheBeano'' in days gone by would have included at least two instances of this.[[note]]Corporal punishment in the Beano lasted long after its abolition in schools and was [[OurLawyersAdvisedThisTrope only really confronted]] when Scotland, home of the comic, passed laws to make physical punishment of children into illegal child abuse. It was well into the 1990s when the father of ComicStrip/{{Dennis the Menace|UK}} kept his slippers exclusively for wear on his feet, and the long-suffering teacher of the Bash Street Kids hung up his cane for the last time.[[/note]]
* WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck in the [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse comics]] doesn't have a belt, but he'd often chase his nephews with a stick. Used to, anyway. This is practically nonexistent in the modern strips, and these days the boys aren't in need of this kind of treatment anyway, being usually more competent and mature than their uncle.
* The comic ''ComicBook/LoveAndRockets'' have several kinky references to Hot Wheel tracks.
* ''ComicBook/ZipiYZape''. But using a mattress beater, a good ol' spanking or the dreaded "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Mice Room]]"

In one the father warns the oldest daughter, who is snootily correcting his grammar, that he will dangle his belt over her "double negative" if she doesn't shut up. In an inversion of this trope, he hands his belt to his son Rusty, who has resigned himself to a whipping and, admitting he was in the wrong, tells Rusty to spank him.
