* Subverted in the ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' episode "Super Squatter". Master Shake refuses to pay the bills because they're too expensive and flushes them down the toilet. Frylock ends up giving him a talking down to when their electricity, water and heat get shut off.
** It gets better - Shake, being immune to learning lessons, solves the problem by stealing power from Carl's house, which burns down due to "bad wiring" (Carl is [[ItMakesSenseInContext too wasted to care]]).

* A common variant used in many cartoons was someone calling the power or gas company and saying that they could not or refused to pay their utility bills. Said service would be cut off before the caller could hang up the phone.

* In ''MacHall'', Ian neglects to pay the electric bill in lieu of buying some new video games. Oops. (Of course, in a later strip when the power goes out again, Ian is immediately blamed, even though that time it isn't his fault)
