* In a classic ''Series/SesameStreet'' sketch, a boy tries to catch fish, but instead pulls up letters in conveniently alphabetical order. Though he initially assumes that he won't be able to eat them, he ends up using them for soup.

[[AC:WesternAnimation]]
* Parodied extensively in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "The Deep South", when the crew goes fishing. Leela catches a boot with a ''harpoon''. Then she gets something that must be good, since it's 20 times heavier than a boot... and it's a crate containing 10 pairs of boots. She gets confident about the next one since the thing is clearly moving... and then pulls up a boot being eaten by Zoidberg. And they were fishing this at the exact center of the Atlantic Ocean.
* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', where Peter's terrible fishing trip results in a tire, a boot, a tin can and [[LampshadeHanging a book of clichés]].

* Happens to Yuuko at one point in ''{{Nichijou}}''. While she's fishing, she reels up an old boot and a kettle. She laughs it off and leaves... and then a giant peach, referencing Momotaro, floats by. [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Don't ask.]]
