* In the time of the Roman Empire, Emperor Domitian banned mimes from public performances. This was not a Caligula-esque act of a mercurial tyrant, however, but one of calculated censorship: by precluding public performances mocking/satirizing the government, Domitian sought to restore/enhance public respect for the state.

* [[AvertedTrope Averted]] in ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', in which one is part of a troupe of performers consisting of a mime, TheBard and TheJester. While the bard and jester bicker constantly and call each other hacks, they both agree without question the mime is an artistic genius. It becomes a RunningGag that other people (even the BigBad) agrees the mime is the only member of the troupe who is flawlessly talented.

** Marcel Marceau and his equally-talented brother Alain picked up mime during WorldWarTwo while fighting for [[LaResistance the French Resistance]]. They used it as a way to entertain the Jewish children they were smuggling over the border to Switzerland (and keep them quiet in the process, so as to avoid being caught by the Nazis). Suffice it to say that those children (and subsequent generations) don't hate mimes as a result.

* ''Series/{{Cheers}}'': One episode saw a mime enter the bar in full makeup and performing his trade. The regular cast were generally bemused by his antics. Another episode had Diane practising the craft. She pronounced it "meem."

Another episode had Diane practising the craft. She pronounced it "meem." Sam, on the other hand, dislikes Mimes and gets annoyed when Diane asks her instructor to the bar; this time he winds up annoying everyone present until he's asked to leave.
