* In ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'', with Dewey's set of dominoes. They averted the collapse many times, and Hal was really looking forward to the eventual release (trying to keep himself from giving in to the temptation to set them off)... and then he comes home and Dewey has already done it.
** At the end of the episode Hal has fully reconstructed the whole set and decides that he better captures it on video this time, only to slamming the door when leaving setting them off again.

* In ''{{Manga/Nichijou}}'', Yuuko and Mio are about to finish a card house, but Mai [[TheGadfly (as usual)]] messes with them, by sticking a cat toy through the house and dropping her glasses on it. Somehow it stays up. They get her to stop, but then Yuuko gets up to go to the bathroom, and the door closing somehow knocks the lamp off the ceiling, crushing the card house. Yuuko comes back in and puts the last two cards on top of the lamp.
