* ''VideoGame/SuikodenI'' stubbornly changes wine to "tea" in the North American dialog, except for a couple of slips. This persists even in cases where the graphics obviously depict sake services, or characters are clearly carousing.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66AYGjkN4vE This]] early MickeyMouse short titled "When the Cat's Away" deserves an extra special mention for showing the cat as being in love with his Moonshine, downing the whole jug in five gulps, promptly grabbing a rifle and marching over the horizon. To top it all off, it was made in 1929 during the Prohibition.

** Played straight in yet another episode, where several characters attend a New Year's party. All, including the adults, drink sparkling cider.

* In ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'', according to WordOfGod Helga's mother Miriam is a textbook alcoholic, even though you never see her drink liquor. All you see is that she makes smoothies. Lots and lots of smoothies. With "tabasco sauce" added, and in one episode, it looks like she reaches for Tabasco that's around wine-looking bottles...conveniently outside of their nine-year-old daughter's reach.

** ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' has the jester get badly drunk on wine, hiccup and pass out while the two kings celebrate. There's also a song dedicated to toasting wine.

* ''VideoGame/FarmVille'':
** In this legendary Facebook timesink, you can start a "Winery". In said winery, you will occasionally see your recipes randomly switch from "Sweet Saki, White Wine, and Red Table Wine" to "Sweet ''Energy Drink'' (without doubt, the funniest of the lot), White Grape Cooler, and Rich Grape Juice" and back again. In either case it's used as biodiesel.
** ''Farmville 2'' had an event that was obviously a wine-tasting festival, but it was insistently referred to as a "berry juice" festival, even though most of the berries involved were grapes.

** In the music video to "Take It Or Leave It", Riot is first shown at a party staring into a glass with ice in it before he slams it down in anger. The drink is purple like juice. While punch is something that ''is'' served at parties, his forlorn demeanor at the time implies [[DrowningMySorrows it should be something else]] and the fact he is a 80s rock star makes the image a bit unusual.

** Benson is often shown intoxicated at the Park gang's favorite joint, Wing Kingdom, seemingly drunk on chicken wings. He generally has wing sauce at the corners of his mouth and has a loud and rambunctious demeanor when he is eating wings.

* Subverted in the Great Rough-House War arc in ''Thimble Theater''; {{ComicStrip/Popeye}} and General Bunzo of Nazilia decide to drink to their new friendship. The King Blozo reminds them of the prohibition in the country. They counter that their drinking from a bottle clearly labeled "GRAPE JUICE". Blozo sniffs the bottle and remarks, "It probably ''was'' grape juice ''fifty years ago.''"

* Disney deserves a special mention here because of its consistent ''[[AvertedTrope refusal]]'' [[AvertedTrope to bow to this trope.]] [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney's animated movies]] predate many of the examples on this page, and they often [[AnAesop show the consequences of excessive drinking in a bad light]]. Just goes to show how ridiculous this type of censorship is.

** One example of Disney featuring people just casually drinking and not getting drunk happened in their adaptation of ''The Legend of Sleepy Hollow''. Early on, Brom Bones is shown as grabbing a large casque of beer and passing it out to his friends, and all of them drink. In fact, when Ichabod Crane is first seen by him, it's through a nice, frothy mug of beer.

The [[{{Bowdlerise}} censorship]] of alcohol or other drugs in a family-friendly work. Often, [[PragmaticAdaptation the media makes no attempt]] to disguise the ''effects'' of intoxication, only the source. Drinks will be changed into [[WineIsClassy "fruit juice"]] or "tea". Cigarettes and the like will likewise be changed into the most similar everyday object. The effects of being drunk are often attributed to [[DrunkOnMilk something else]] such as poison or sleeping potion, or a sense of being "relaxed". Too much tea, apparently, makes you so amazingly relaxed that you lose control of your legs, throw up in a corner and lose consciousness. A non-alcoholic variant, seen almost exclusively in dubbed anime, involves changing coffee into cocoa or hot chocolate because the characters involved are "too young" to be drinking coffee. (Similar to an old myth that drinking coffee while young will "stunt your growth".)

* Averted/Parodied in ''Franchise/AceAttorney'', in which the main character Phoenix Wright drinks not wine, but rather, grape juice, which happens in '''BOTH''' the Western and in the Eastern versions. Same with [[VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth Miles Edgeworth]] who is clearly seen drinking grape juice. In fact, that's creator Shu Takumi's [[TrademarkFavouriteFood favorite drink]]. Similar thing happens with [[MemeticBadass Inspector Tyrell Badd]] who seems to have a "cigarette", which turns out to be a lollipop. Obviously, all these things are PlayedForLaughs.

* Many cartoons set in the WildWest will invariably end up in a bar, where the protagonist will ask for either milk or a sarsaparilla, aka the "root" in root beer.

This often happens in family films. Any use of real drugs or alcohol will give a film a PG-13 rating, restricting profits. Television shows, which are made and/or aired by companies that also make films, tend to follow this lead. Note that in some cases, this is required -- for example, U.S. law prohibits depictions of cigarettes in television programming for minors, so those will always be edited out or into something more innocent. (Oddly, the law only prohibits cigarettes -- this is why Sanji from ''Manga/OnePiece'' has his cigarette airbrushed out in the American broadcast version of the Funimation dub, but Captain Smoker is allowed to keep his cigar.)
