Added DiffLines:

* Discussed by Creator/DougWalker in his review of the ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' first season episode "Avatar Roku," where the heroes try and fail to open a door just before a commercial break. Doug was sure that it would turn out they just had to push the doors to get inside instead of pulling, like they were doing, and was pleased when the writers did something much more clever.

Added DiffLines:

* In the German film "Münchhausen" (sorry, don't ask which one) the [[TheMunchausen selfsame]] Baron of Lies and the Young Hero compete for the love of the heroine. Their game of one-upmanship epically fails at the next door. One pushes, the other pulls, until the heroine shows them that it's a slide door.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'', the girls get locked in a room and ineffectually push and tackle the door, then Spike and DJ Pon-3 arrive and reveal it opens inward. The novelization [[JustifiedTrope provides a better reason]] why they couldn't escape: the door was bolted shut and DJ Pon-3 had to pry it open with a crowbar.

* On ''Webcomic/SequentialArt'', Scarlet and Art end up [[http://www.collectedcurios.com/sequentialart.php?s=108 both trying to push the same door at the same time from either side]].



* Happens twice in ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''. The first case is in "Read All About Ed", when Ed tries to deliver a paper to a fenced-in house, but can't pull the tall fence door open. He then tries to leap clean over the door, only to get his pants snagged on the top of the frame. When he calls Edd for help, Edd pushes the door open, smacking Ed into the fence in the process. The second case is in "Too Smart For His Own Ed", and this time it's ''Edd'' that falls victim to this. After Ed wins the spelling bee, Edd is left flustered and unable to think clearly, so when he tries to enter the cafeteria and can't push the door open, he thinks it's locked at first, until Ed of all people points out he was supposed to pull it. (Spelling pull right, but reading it backwards.)
