* ''Series/SmallWonder'': One of the later episodes pits two robotic children against one another- the protagonist Vicki, and Russian rival Vladimir Godunov. At the very end, Vladimir's robotic nature is exposed, and his creator is left to protest [[spoiler:"You couldn't leave Godunov alone?"]] That one was so bad, even the ''studio audience'' could only moan at it.

Added DiffLines:

* An episode of ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' brings to a climax a plot-line involving Daphne developing an eating disorder and putting on a lot of weight[[note]]which was actually an attempt at HideYourPregnancy for the actress[[/note]], which everyone except Niles notices and awkwardly tries to avoid bringing up. When there is a confrontation at the end of the episode, Daphne ends up slipping and being unable to get back up under her own strength, leading Frasier, Niles and Martin[[note]]who, for the unaware, have the family name 'Crane'[[/note]] to try and help her. While they're doing so, Martin is struck by a thought: "Hey Daphne, I just realised something. It took three Cranes to lift you!" Everyone glares at him.

A short-{{short story}} (300 words on the average, although 500-word examples exist), ending in a pun or a punchline that is pretty obviously the only reason for the story's existence. The telling detail in a Feghoot is the [[LamePunReaction groan emitted by the reader/listener when he hits the punchline]]. In essence, an OverlyPrePreparedGag in short story form.

* One greentext on Website/FourChan tells of two Chinese twins named Ving and Ling. Ving hates his name, so he goes with Ling to the town hall and files all the necessary paperwork to change it to Lee ("like Creator/BruceLee"). At the last moment, he feels conflicted because he doesn't want to betray his family tradition, so Ling pulls out some money to pay the cancellation fee. But suddenly, their father appears, and he's supportive of his son's decision to change his name to Lee even if it goes against tradition. He embraces his son and declares: [[spoiler:[[Music/{{Journey}} "Don't stop. Be Lee, Ving. Hold on to that fee, Ling."]]]]

Bertram Chandler, is a tale of a dystopian future where fuel shortages have resulted in automobiles being made of clockwork and delivered by airship. When one such airship must jettison its cargo, a spectator on a nearby rooftop warns, [[spoiler:"Take cover! It's raining Datsun cogs!"]]

* Mister Peabody in the Peabody's Improbable History sketches from ''WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle'' would end on him making a summation of the historical goings on in a {{Pun}}.

to:

* The ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' episode "The Catfish" is about Gumball (cat) and Darwin (fish) [[InventedIndividual making up a person online]] to be their grandpa Louie's friend. Most of it leads up to the pun in the episode title.
-->'''Louie:''' Do you know what a cat and a fish pretending to be someone else online is called?\\
'''Gumball:''' [[RightForTheWrongReasons Cat... fishing?]]\\
'''Louie:''' [[WontTakeYesForAnAnswer No! It's called... wait.]] Actually, yes, that is what it's called.

** Among the objects Rocky and Bullwinkle encountered; The Ruby Yacht of Omar Khayyam and the Kerwood Derby.
** [[RuleOfThree Also]], the Aesop and Son segments would end with Aesop giving the moral of the story, followed by Aesop Jr. giving an alternate "moral" as a pun.
--->'''Jr.''': Dad, I think the lesson was "A chain is only as strong as its weakest mink!"
--->'''Aesop''': Takes after his mother, that boy does.
* The ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "More Crap" turns out to be this. The reason why Bono tries so hard at everything is because of a major case of envy. [[spoiler:He is literally made out of feces -- according to his father, "He will always be my Number Two."]]
** The rest of the joke is finding ways to say that Bono is the world's biggest shit.
* The ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' episode ''The Art of Ninjitsu'' revolves around the team trying to capture the "Golden McGuffin", an indeterminate object that is important to Robin, because... reasons. At the end, they find out that the McGuffin they were questing for is an egg, bacon and English muffin sandwich. Cyborg drops the [[ObligatoryJoke by-now-mandatory pun]]:
---> '''Cyborg''': "You mean we did all this for an [[UsefulNotes/{{McDonalds}} Egg McGuffin?]]"
