* The "Hey, Roosta, I've Just Had This Really Hoopy Idea Incident" sequence in ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'', in which Zaphod's cunning plan to escape AFateWorseThanDeath is to teleport both himself and his friend Roosta to the world's most horrible discotheque (full of robot dancers who make the club look full, and nozzles on the wall that spray hot artificial sweat at attendees). It's shameless {{Padding}} of the "the hero escapes and gets captured again" variety, albeit thinly justified by it turning out that Zaphod's captors set the whole thing up just to fuck with his head, but groovy as well as hilarious.

The music used for this sequence is a horribly distorted version of Music/TheBeeGees' "Stayin' Alive" played backwards with beats removed. It's shameless {{Padding}} of the "the hero escapes and gets captured again" variety, albeit thinly justified by it turning out that Zaphod's captors set the whole thing up just to fuck with his head, but groovy as well as hilarious.hilarious. -->"They are passing out! Spray them with adrenalin! Make the lights flash faster!"

** The sequel has Goofy and Sylvia shaking their groove thing to, well, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ait5pRVCd2g "Shake Your Groove Thing"]]. There is a bit of a lampshade over the outdated aspect of the music, with the DJ blowing dust from the record and the Disco ball coming from a trap full of spiderwebs.

* In ''Film/TheNakedGun 33 1/3: The Final Insult'', there is a flashback of the characters during the '70s in an appropriately Disco setting. Part of the gag is that the actors weren't made up to look any younger -- they are just dressed in Disco-era fashion and with longer hair (including Nordberg [O.J. Simpson] with a FunnyAfro so big he can't get through a door). Even more absurd, the Anna Nicole Smith character appears as a grown woman in the disco scene, even though the actress herself had barely reached puberty when the '70s ended.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' episode "Gang Busters", Hampton keeps messing up the music genre the characters are singing (rap), and one instance has him disco dancing while Fifi, Shirley, and Elmyra sing "Disco Inferno".

* ''Literature/TheTripods'' is about a VichyEarth kept in MedievalStasis by [[AlienInvasion alien invaders]], so something of an AnachronismStew moment occurs when a spy infiltrating the alien city walks into a bar for their human collaborators called the Red Parrot, and finds a [[StandardDiscoEquipment light ball shining multi-coloured beams]] over dancing men and women.
