* 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.)

* Averted in the ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'' episode "100 Proof Highway", which not only shows characters in a drunken state but explicitly attributes this to the effects of alcohol. It should be noted, however, that this is a VerySpecialEpisode and, as such, focuses on the dangers associated with drinking liquor, including the fact that [[TruthInTelevision too much of it can get you killed]].

* Disney deserves a special mention here because of its consistent ''refusal'' 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.

** In the Funimation dub of the flashback episode about [[IdiotHero Luffy's]] past, Shanks and his pirates are drinking lots of sake and rum. Also, when Shanks offers kid Luffy some juice and Luffy drinks it, he turns around and exclaims "I don't know one pirate who drinks ''juice''!"
** Strangely that was actually not a case of this trope the original had the same thing except with milk instead of juice

** During Usopp's fight with Chu, he throws a bottle of sake at him and then shatters it with his slingshot. A short time later, he fires a Flame Star at Chu, which ignites the alcohol on him, forcing him to run to a rice paddy. In the 4kids dub, he throws soda at him, and proceeds to set it on fire.
