Sometimes TruthInTelevision, but [[OlderThanTelevision older]]. It was most notably the subject of a RunningGag on the popular radio series ''Radio/FibberMcGeeAndMolly'' - the former trope namer. Has nothing to do with actually [[StuffBlowingUp blowing up]] closets.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'': This is a small RunningGag whenever someone opens a closet, and have a bunch of knick-knacks avalanche on them. For example, "Lights Out" begins with Rabbit storming into Pooh's house after he allowed the bear to borrow his shovel, but Pooh forgot to return it. Pooh states he left the shovel in his closet and Rabbit, dismissing Pooh's warnings, opens the door and gets trampled in junk. The last item to fall is the shovel, which Pooh gleefully hands to a nearly buried and grumbling Rabbit.
-->'''Rabbit:''' Pooh, I want my shovel back, right now! And I'm going to get it!\\

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales1987'': It happens to Huey, Dewey and Louie when Scrooge opens their closet in "Raiders of the Lost Harp". The nephews had been told to clean their room. Clean their room they did, but they stuffed everything in their closet. It was too bad they didn't deflate their rubber life raft first!
