* "Quinn the Eskimo" ("The Mighty Quinn") from ''Music/SelfPortrait'' by Music/BobDylan, which was CoveredUp in the UK by Manfred Mann's Earth Band. Zig-zags... or maybe subverts, or... Well, it does ''something'' unconventional with the trope by making the titular Inuk some kind of messianic figure.

* The final verse of the Christmas carol ''Winter Wonderland'' evokes this: "When it snows, ain't it thrilling / Though your nose gets a chilling / We'll frolic and play, the Eskimo way / Walking in a winter wonderland."

* [[TheFarSide Gary Larson]] made a lot of gags based on this trope.

* ''IceClimber'' is definitely set here, with yetis added in. There are no penguins though, keeping the theme strictly "North Pole."
* Holoska from ''SonicUnleashed'', the northern polar ice cap of Sonic's world and its own country.

* ''NanooksGreatHunt'', a fairly obscure animated series about an Inuit boy on a quest to save his father, who has been captured by a malevolent Polar Bear god. Set in the late 19th century or thereabouts, many episodes revolved around the culture clash between the traditional Inuit ways & the encroaching modern world.
* Averted in the Greenland episode of KikaAndBob (which is kinda surprising, considering that this animated series often embraces ethnic stereotypes): The Inuits of Greenland live in houses and resent being called "eskimos".

* In ''TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker,'' Zunari is a shopkeeper who is from "a very cold place" who looks the stereotype to a T. He wears his parka 24/7 even on the rather temperate island he lives on in the present. In its direct sequel ''Phantom Hourglass'' we find his apparent hometown and the people he was raised among. The Anouki (PettingZooPeople who are mostly humanoid penguins with reindeer antlers) are ice igloo-dwelling denizens of SlippySlideyIceWorld and ''all'' wear nothing but blue parkas (okay, there are two with yellow ones as part of a sidequest.)

Added DiffLines:

* The "Ben Colder" (Creator/ShebWooley) song "Don't Go Near the Eskimos" is absolutely chock-full of stereotypes about Eskimos and EskimoLand.

* ''BigMiracle'' is better than most considering it's based on a true story and depicts the Inupiat community realistically having to deal with the political implications of the whale rescue.
