* Classic [[ClassicDisneyShorts Goofy cartoons]] used to do this with a number of subjects (mostly sports).

** Goofy is not the only Disney character who has done this. DonaldDuck appeared on "How to Have an Accident in the Home" and "How to Have an Accident at Work". What makes these ones different from Goofy's is that instead of a faceless narrator, we have J.J. Fate, a fantastical duck dwarf.
* An entire episode of ''HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw'' ("Sebben and Sebben Employee Orientation") features the cast in a sendup of cheesy workplace orientation videos.

Satirical "How To" guides. The [[TheBlindLeadingTheBlind instructions are faulty]], or the person following them does it horribly, or the instructions are loaded with {{irony}} about how ''not'' to do it. One sure thing, [[RuleOfFunny the point is to laugh]], not to teach.
