* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FoDhrhGozE "Robin Hoof"]] segment from ''RawToonage'' took this trope and added some JayWard [[GenreThrowback throwbacks]] to the formula.

* The ''WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim'' series had ''every'' episode end with a cow dropping on someone out of the blue. This refers to the ending of the [[VideoGame/EarthwormJim first video game]], which is a BrickJoke and not this trope.

** "Hyper Psy-Crow" ''nearly'' averts it:
-->'''Psy-Crow:''' Oh well, HereWeGoAgain! ''(screen starts irising to black, when...)''\\
'''Jim:''' HOLD IT! You are ''not'' doing a "HereWeGoAgain" ending on ''my'' show!\\
'''Psy-Crow:''' Well, what kind of ending did ''you'' want, Mr. "Too-Good-for-Standard-Cheesy-Cartoon-Endings"?\\
'''Jim:''' ...What do you think?\\
'''Psy-Crow:''' ''(fearful)'' ...The cow thing?\\
'''Jim:''' Ummm... Cue the cow! ''(it gets dropped right on top of Psy-Crow)'' Guh-roovy! ''(episode ends)''

** [[VideoGameBaldursGate The first game]] actually had a [[LethalJokeWeapon spell]] (available only via cheat code) called Summon Cow that would drop a cow on the target's head for decent (but not nearly as much as the Wild Surge version) damage.

* The film ''RatRace'' parodies this -- right when the novelty of the Bus of Lucys should be wearing thin for Owen, he gets a windshield-full of literal cow.

* ''ABitOfFryAndLaurie'' parodied their own inability to end sketches in a similar manner to the Pythons: In one episode the now traditional shopkeeper sketch (in which Stephen is a very strange shopkeeper and Hugh a StraightMan customer) ends with Hugh accusing Stephen of ramping up the weirdness because he doesn't know how the sketch ends. Stephen assures him the sketch ''does'' have an ending, and he'll just go and get the script to prove it. It takes Hugh a while to realise he's not coming back.

Added DiffLines:

* Referenced in an episode of ''Series/NorthernExposure'', when Chris ''plans'' to hurl a cow from his homemade catapult as performance art, but changes his mind after being told the Pythons did this in their film; he wanted to create original art, not imitate a movie. [[spoiler:He flings a piano instead.]]

* Taken literally, sort of, by AbbottAndCostello during one of their live TV performances in the 1950s. In the middle of performing one of their many army skits, what appeared to be a cow (or a cow costume, to be more precise) suddenly fell from the rafters onto Costello, knocking him to the floor and causing Abbott and the rest of the cast to have a WTF? moment as Costello tossed the costume aside and the skit continued (all the while the audience is in hysterics). Since A&C occasionally incorporated faked flubs into their performances, it's unclear whether this was an actual mishap, or was intentional. It can be seen on a rare 1980s VHS release of A&C bloopers.
