* Lampshaded in the ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheAlienInvaders'' when the villains of the story tell Fred, Daphne and Velma about how they found a gold mine some old miners in the past were digging in. But said miners gave up and left when they were only a few more feet from a gold deposit. Naturally the villains are happy to gain from their loss.

As soon as he leaves, ''[[RainOfSomethingUnusual donuts start falling from the sky]]''.
