* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' season 2 episode "[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/StevenUniverseS2E19NightmareHospital Nightmare Hospital]]" has Connie's mother, Dr. Maheswaran, confiscate Rose Quartz's sword from Connie. Justified because she's a doctor and has seen what kids playing with dangerous things can lead to. Subverted because she mistook her daughter as playing with the sword, and refused to budge even when Connie and Steven explained she was ''training'' to ''fight'' with the sword.

* [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] and [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in ''MonsterHouse'': Mr. Nebbercracker cultivated the "scary, cranky old man" image, and would snatch the toys that ended up landing on his lawn [[spoiler: to protect kids from trying to retrieve them, because his house was sentient, possessed by the vengeful spirit of his wife who had big issues with nasty, pranking hooligan children and couldn't tell them from non-malicious children being playful. The truth is that he was a kind-hearted sweet old man who was happy to give the toys back once the danger was over]].

* There was an episode of ''CrossingJordan'' where the FunHatingConfiscatingAdult in Jordan's childhood neighborhood had recently died and a skeleton was found in the baseboards of her floor soon [[spoiler: turns out that it was the remains of her husband who she killed several years ago to protect her mentally disabled son. This trope was played with in the sense that over the course of the investigation, she was shown to be a more of a human being.]] Though they did find the cedar chest where she kept all of the toys.

* ''TheTroop'': Jake and Phoebe each have something confiscated by their neighbor. Jake's takes advantage of [[spoiler: the neighbor having been temporarily petrified by a Basilisk]] to get their stuff back from his box of confiscated toys.
* Brent and Hank of ''CornerGas'' lived near one of these as kids, and as middle-aged men they raid his shed to get their toys back.

* Mrs Munson from ''KidVsKat'' has confiscated hundreds if not thousands of toys in her lifetime, keeping them all locked away in her garden shed. She's been doing this for so long that when Coop manages to return all the toys to their owner's a grey haired senior is thrilled to get his long lost kite back.

* Miss Mucus from ''CampLazlo'' has a room in her trailer full of toys she has confiscated. Scoutmaster Lumpus also has elements of this but, in his case, he tend to confiscate items so he can use them himself rather than to deprive the children of them.

to:

* A brief gag in ''Film/AChristmasStory'' has the children in Ralphie's class wear fake buck teeth when their teacher comes in. Without saying a word, she holds out her hand and the students hand them over. The teacher isn't so much shown as fun-hating than no-nonsense though, and the fact that the students know the drill and she already has a drawer full of confiscated novelty items implies this is far from the first time they've done something like that.




to:

* In the children's book, ''The Wonderful Farm'', one story has an unusual variant in that the girls have their ball confiscated by an angry old ''goose'', who proceeds to lecture them on not taking proper care of their things (they were, the ball had just flown past one of them and had the bad luck of rolling too close to the pond). Interestingly, he is quite happy to play with it himself and let his own children play with it. The girls, meanwhile, spend the rest of the story trying to get it back to avoid a scolding from their parents. [[spoiler:In the end, the family's donkey uses some clever trickery and the goose ultimately relents.]]
