** [[ComicStrip/USAcres Roy]] spent an episode with [[Franchise/CareBears The Buddy]] [[{{Expy}} Bears]] where they dropped sixteen ton safes on him whenever [[TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong he did something different from the group]]. At the end of that episode, Roy got them to agree into not throwing him one sixteen ton safe. They dropped ''two''. In a later episode when he's around them again, they assure him that they do not have any sixteen ton safes. Instead, when they inevitably [[RunningGag drop a safe on him]], it's ''twenty-seven'' tons. And before that they threw other stuff.

** In another "Treehouse of Horror" tale, "Hell Toupée," Snake is [[AllCrimesAreEqual sent to the electric chair for smoking inside the Kwik-E-Mart]] (it was part of a "three-strikes" offense stipulation). After Snake's body has been burned, Homer buys Snake's hair and wears it as a wig to cover his baldness. What he didn't realize was that Snake's soul was still inside the wig, and once the wig was on the soul gained access to Homer's brain and overrode his personality, forcing Homer to take revenge on all the witnesses who got Snake sentenced to death - including Bart. Homer, finding the murdered bodies of Apu and Moe and not realizing that Snake was behind the killings (and, more to the point, that he is ''himself'' Snake when the wig is on), promises to protect Bart by boarding up the door to his room. "There," he reassures Bart, "now nobody can get in." Then Snake takes over his mind and he sneers: "Or out."
