* The animated version of ''Radio/TheRickyGervaisShow'' employs this in the cartoon for KarlPilkington's diary entry about learning the word "wewe",[[note]] a reference to Wewe Gombel, a female ghost with drooping breasts who kidnaps children according to Javanese and Sundanese mythology[[/note]] which Creator/StephenMerchant pronounces "woo". When Steve reads Karl's comment that he could not imagine a situation where he would ever need the word "wewe", Karl is shown sitting at a table in a pub with a pint, looking around the room, then mouthing "wewe" (in time with Stephen's voice) with an expression of flat joy.

* The Goths of ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaPresentsTheRidonculousRace'' run on this trope. Even at their most joyful neither goes anything above deadpan and they even tell each other to calm down for being too exuberant even though their delivery is still completely flat.

* YuYuHakusho: At the start of Yusuke's first case involving Genkai, he and Kuwabara end up outside her shrine for separate reasons. After seeing the OldMaster for the first time, Yusuke is less than enthused about the case. Meanwhile, Kuwabara wasn't interested in special training, just some advice on how to keep his own power under control. So when she has everyone present draw lots to see who gets to move on to the basic tests,[[note]]She designed them as spiritual litmus paper; only those with sufficient spirit energy would change the paper to a passing color.[[/note]] Yusuke thinks to himself praying for a blank losing slip. What happens?

* In an episode from the Hanna-Barbera ''[[WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry The Tom And Jerry Show]]'', Robin Hood tries to get his Merry Men to laugh, and they all respond with a mirthless "ha ha ha...ho ho ho...hee hee hee." This kind of laugh becomes the RunningGag of the whole episode right up to the end, when the Merry Men break out of this habit and have a truly joyous laugh at Robin Hood's expense.
