* In ''Series/BeakmansWorld'', one particularly dangerous demonstration involving ammonia and strong acids has a comical quick cut beforehand of all the characters turning in place with klaxons blaring and rotating red lights flashing before cutting a particularly urgent "Don't try this..." warning. On the whole, however, this trope is actually avoided, as with careful following of the instructions and parental supervision, you could do most of the experiments shown at home. The "safe" stunts had their own warning: "Experiments should be performed only with adult supervision, and all appropriate safety precautions should be taken. All directions should be followed exactly, and no substitutions should be used."

*** TechnologyMarchesOn: With the adoption of flat-screen TVs that don't need a electron gun to show pictures (and therefore don't react so much to magnets), this skit doesn't age well.
