** A show of it was a {{Crossover}} featuring characters of ''Anime/MazingerZ'', ''Anime/GreatMazinger'', ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' and ''Manga/GetterRobo''. In that movie, the most famous GoNagai HumongousMecha battled an ugly, massive prehistoric animal had survived in the depths of the oceans and had been mutated after feeding with huge quantities of oil spills.

* ''[[{{Superman}} Superman For Earth]]'', a 1990s Earth Day comic printed entirely on recycled paper. Notable for not always having easy answers; when Superman takes all the garbage away, one of the people protesting the landfill thinks "But where ''will'' it go?"

* ''[[{{Superman}} Franchise/{{Superman}}:
** ''Comicbook/KryptonNoMore'' had a strong anti-pollution message.
Superman becomes increasingly concerned with protecting Earth. However, when he decides to take radical measures to protect the environment, Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} interferes and reminds him that they cannot make decisions for humanity.

** Amusingly, any faction (controlled by the player), even the Morganites (oddly enough), can easily out-green the Gaians if they pick the right choices, without all the smugness. But the fact remains that having a high Planet rating (i.e., being eco-friendly) is one of the best things to have in the late game so high mineral production doesn't result in a boil of mindworms the size of Kentucky chowing down on your citizens' brains.
*** But the Gaians still get an extra + 1 Planet, letting them get one point higher than any other faction if they choose all of the green social engineering choices.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' has done a number of these, including: "The Birdbot Ice-Catraz" (oil spills), "The Futurama Holiday Spectacular" (deforestation, petroleum depletion, and honeybee deaths), and the movie "Into the Wild Green Yonder" (land development). However, the morals usually take a backseat to comedy.



* Parodied on ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'', when an IdenticalStranger of Beezy poses as him in order to pass a number of enviorment related laws. As you might expect from this show, no lesson is really learned.

** One of the episodes that deconstructs this Aesop is the one in which Homer has to take care of an endangered bug he found in the backyard that's going extinct naturally, due to the fact that it screams incessantly, will die without constant reassurance and is sexually attracted to fire ("Are you sure God doesn't want it to be dead?"). It makes the actual intriguing argument that humans ''preventing'' animals from going extinct naturally via natural selection can be just as disruptive as driving a species to extinction via hunting, pollution, or habitat loss. [[HalfwayPlotSwitch Then it naturally forgets about the message for the second half of the episode.]] Of course, given the minuscule likelihood of an inherently TooStupidToLive creature evolving, and the incredibly long timespan over which natural selection ''naturally'' occurs, it would just have turned into a BrokenAesop or SpaceWhaleAesop anyway.
