* In the Spanish dub of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' short "I'm Mad", Wakko's line "Gotta use the potty, better stop the car!" is translated into "Tengo que ir al baño para la potty", with the translators leaving the word "potty" in English rather than translating it as "orinal" [[note]]though this may be because it's also used as the Spanish word for "urinal".[[/note]]

* The ''Fanfic/TouhouM1GrandPrix'' has "[=JudgEE=]" for ever time judging comes up. There are also a few skits with not-quite-english, one of the worst (for [[RuleOfFunny comic effect]]) was in the 3rd contest when Tewi tried to do an English routine... while only knowing a few words. Made funnier as even the other comedian realizes it's wrong.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' are translated to Spanish for latin america, but the musical interludes are not. Translating dialogues is one thing, but translation the lyrics of a song in a way that they remain true to the original lyrics and also fit well in the song is not an easy task (even in the music industry translated lyrics in CoverVersion songs are rare). As a result, the episodes make an odd jump from characters speaking in Spanish, to the same characters singing in English and with different voices (as the voice actors are not the same).
