* ''Film/IAmAFugitiveFromAChainGang'' is probably the TropeCodifier with its extensive use of this trope. Months fly off a calendar several times, like when Allen is waiting out the months during his second stint on a chain gang.

* Rather creatively used in ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures: [[TheMovie How I Spent My Summer Vacation]]''. The calendar in question has a picture of Tweety on it, who comes to life, flies off the calendar, and turns the page to the next month. The next month has a picture of a boat in a storm [[MatchCut which is the location of the next scene]].

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' episode, "Battle of the Boy Bands", when Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles form their own boy band, they have to come up with a name, and a montage is shown. This includes the usual montage tropes, such as the WastebasketBall and SpinningClockHands. When it gets to this trope, it is revealed to be [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] with this line from Sonic:
-->'''Sonic:''' "Knuckles, stop tearing pages off that calendar!"

Added DiffLines:

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies''. The kids had entered in a local radio contest, and Nanny explained to them it would take a week for them to find out the results, as well as how long a week is. We then see the pages on a daily calendar dropping off, only for it to be revealed that [[ExtremeOmnivore Animal]] was simply eating them.

* An early episode of the anime ''SteamDetectives'' uses the X'ed days variation as the Machine Baron counts down to a significant date, and plays it pretty much straight.

* Parodied and invoked on ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball''. Principal Brown is leading the school band, and they don't have much time to practice. When someone suggests a TimeCompressionMontage, he says they don't even have time for ''that'', so he just tears the pages off a calendar while the band plays to give the impression of one.

* Subverted in ''Anime/SpaceDandy'' whem a calendar bound with Pyonium energy causes a time loop. Within the attempts to get it unstuck, Dandy pulls out a bazooka at one point and ''literally attempts to blow it up'' to no avail.
