This works extremely well with bananas (because FreudWasRight, anyone can slip on a BananaPeel, and ''banana'' is an {{Inherently Funny Word|s}}), but it also works with apples, oranges, kumquats, lemons, tangelos, pineapples and, in one case, a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satsuma_(fruit) satsuma]]. Often makes use of a FundamentallyFunnyFruit.

* Captain Barbossa from ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' is often seen carrying around and/or eating an apple.
** Though his love of apples could stem from being unable to actually ''taste'' them for so long.
** In ''Curse of the Black Pearl'', when Jack is inspecting his new "crew" on the pier, he's holding a banana. It's never mentioned, it's not {{lampshade|Hanging}}d or {{Hand Wave}}d, it's just... there.
*** The audio commentary doesn't explain it either, Gore Verbinski and Johnny Depp simply going "The banana!" and then moving on. Could be an [[NoodleIncident inside joke]].

* Woody Allen's futuramic ''Film/{{Sleeper}}'' has him searching for food and coming across a farm where insanely large fruit is being grown. He picks a banana the size of a canoe, and when a guard runs up to catch him, the two slip repeatedly on the carpet-size banana peel.

* In [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney's]] ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'', the good guys' plan to sneak into the palace and save the emperor involves the comic relief trio [[DisguisedInDrag dressing up as women]]. If them pulling fruit out of the front of their robes as a [[TheReveal reveal]] wasn't amusing enough, one of them pulls out a ''banana'' (and not TWO, for that matter).

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' had this with Mayor Adam West giving Quagmire a banana and cryptically telling him that "[[ChekhovsGun When the time is right, you'll know what to do with it]]". Later, when Quagmire's being chased by an angry Cleveland, he remembers the Mayor's advice and throws the banana at Cleveland. It bounces off harmlessly, they stop, look expectantly at the banana on the ground, and after a few seconds, the chase resumes.

* In the Creator/MarxBrothers' classic ''HorseFeathers'', Harpo pulls a banana out of his pocket which has a zipper built into the peel. He eats a couple of bites; when called away, he re-zips the peel to save the rest of the fruit for later.
