* An example without falling: When Wilbur is coming in for a landing in TheRescuersDownUnder, Jake rigs up a bra as a drag line. Of course Wilbur ends up wearing the bra.
* A variant occurs in the WallaceAndGromit short ''The Wrong Trousers''. Wallace has various machines that automate routine daily operations, such as everything from waking up to getting in the van to go to work (this is a ''single continuous process'' that begins with Wallace still asleep when he leaves the bed). They rent out their spare bedroom (to a penguin, and even Wallace thinks that's a bit odd) at the same time Wallace buys automatic pants (that can walk around on their own, among other things) from NASA Surplus. The penguin substitutes the automatic pants for Wallace's regular ones in the morning routine machine as part of a fairly complex plot to perform a series of meticulously planned and executed burglaries.

* While a possible clever reference to Aladdin's movie, this trope was averted In a crossover episode of [[{{Disney/Hercules}} Disney's Hercules]] featuring [[WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries Aladdin]], Hercules got tricked into flying Pegasus into Agrabah's "Alley of a Thousand Sheets", where it looked like the clothesline was going to send him flying. In spite of Phil's complaints, he managed to muscle through and break the clothesline.

* In a more intentional version, [[CalvinAndHobbes Calvin]] fantasized about a machine that readied him for bed. To get him into his pajamas, it dropped him head-first into his shirt, then flip him so he would fall legs-first into his pants, all in one fluid arrangement. He apparently didn't think about that [[GroinAttack last part]] too hard...

A character falling, usually between two skyscrapers in a city, hits a clothesline on the way down, and ends up wearing something from the line. If the buildings are tall enough, he can hit several lines, acquiring one item from each, resulting in a hilariously mismatched costume by the time he lands. Alternately, he can get a full outfit off a single line. These can be combined, too, resulting in a gag where the character ends up with several impromptu changes of clothes before the sudden stop at the end.
