* An example from the subscriber section of ''{{Drowtales}}'' happened in a story where the users put in options, and the story [[{{Rule34}} naturally devolved into porn]]. The next page showed Ariel punching Liriel to get the story back on track, since the premise of the section is that it's the daydream of a character telling it to the audience. Other stories in the same section have had other types of cow droppings including the story itself getting canned if it's derailed too far.

* Many scenes in ''TheDementedCartoonMovie'' end with characters getting crushed by Mr. Big Shoe, characters getting crushed by a one-legged shoe-wearing giant (who himself gets crushed by Mr Big Shoe once), characters getting crushed by Mr. Weight, or Zeeky H. Bomb suddenly appearing to say "zeeky boogy doog," a phrase which reliably sets off [[StuffBlowingUp nuclear explosions]] and sometimes an EarthShatteringKaboom.

* 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.

* 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.]]
