* In ''Comicbook/MsMarvel2014'', Kamala is grounded forever after her parents find out that she snuck out to the party in the first issue. She is grounded even more forever in issue 5 when her midnight snack convinces her parents that she snuck out again. Grounding her is pointless anyway [[spoiler: [[ComicBook/SecretWars2015 Since the world's about to end.]] ]]

* Subverted in ''Series/FamilyTies'', Mallory makes a mistake and her father says to her, "You're Grounded until further notice." She looks at him like he's crazy, and says, "You can't ground me, I'm over 18!" Her father looks at her mother in stunned realization that she's right. "Darn, that worked so well when she was younger."

to:

* In the ''Series/LabRats'' episode "Memory Wipe", this is said verbatim by Davenport to the kids after he finds them spying on him. Leo's attempt to erase his memory of him giving the punishment goes wrong.



* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' used this as Huey, Dewey and Louie (disguised transformations of the criminal group, the Beagle Boys) made several attempts to steal the lucky dime, they also made a major mess, breaking things. That, however, made their rich uncle pissed off at his nephews, resulting in a major punishment by saying "HUEY! DEWEY! LOUIE! YOU ARE DEFINITELY GROUNDED! YOU NEED TO GO TO YOUR ROOM!" Mrs. Beakley, disguised as a evil witch, finds 2 of the Beagle Boys in his nephews' room (as much as Huey) and forces 2 of her minions to find his lucky dime so she could steal it for her own evil purposes prior to making her extremely powerful so she used the real Huey and Mrs. Beakley as her kidnapping bait to lure Uncle Scrooge into her trap, thus leaving the fake version behind in their room, making Magica turn Dewey and Louie back into their normal selves as much as Huey back into [[spoiler: Burger Beagle]], causing Scrooge to say his name). Episode was "Send in the Clones".
* [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig Zagged]] in ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop''. In "Axed By Addition" Pete threatens to ground PJ forever if he fails his math test, a threat the latter takes very seriously and even [[PlayingSick plays sick]] in order to get in one last day of freedom. Once Pete finds out the truth, he yells at PJ for not guessing he was bluffing... and then says he's grounded forever for ''that,'' though he has a change of heart when he finds out that [[ShaggyDogStory PJ didn't even fail in the first place.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'': Johnny's dad threatens to ground Johnny and his sisters FOREVER! One of the sisters reminds him that he can't ground them past 18, [[VerbalBackspace so he says he'll ground them UNTIL 18]].

** Johnny's dad did this quite frequently. In "Johnny Long Legs", he threatens to ground the kids [[LongerThanLifeSentence for two lives]].



* ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012'' had this after Blythe Baxter made her first attempt to rescue her Littlest Pet Shop friends from a runaway truck filled with sweets, Roger Baxter grounds her and [[spoiler: takes away her cell phone]]. While Blythe is grounded, her Littlest Pet Shop friends recover her confiscated cell phone and continued to film a reaction of the same incident, with Roger Baxter in hot pursuit of the same runaway truck filled with sweets, resulting in a major death of his dummy pal (while getting a traffic ticket by a police officer). Roger [[spoiler: later apologizes]] to Blythe, [[spoiler: forgives her]] and joins her in his father/daughter race. The name of the episode is "(Sweet) Truck Ride".
** Another episode had Blythe Baxter (also grounded), seeing other people in her dreams (especially Karina Ivanov from "So You Skink You Can Dance"). The name of the dreamscape-esque episode [[spoiler: where Blythe Baxter is grounded]] is loosely based off this trope, "''Main/GroundedForever''", is none other than "Grounded" (often referred to as "The Dreamscape of Blythe Baxter", which counts as a major reference to ''Film/{{Dreamscape}}'', causing ''Creator/DHXMedia'' to place a allusion to the 1984 film of the same name in their 2012 animated series).
* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheGoblinKing'' ends with [[spoiler: the Goblin King]] grounding Willow for 1,000 years. Of course, they're immortal, so it is most likely a normal length of time for such a punishment. As [[spoiler: the Goblin King]] takes the evil magician with him for 1,000 years, the magic show was seriously canceled and [[spoiler: definitely closed]] by the employees who operate the amusement park.

* In an episode of ''Series/SaluteYourShorts'', Sponge is given permission to use his computer in order to connect to a phone line (use of phones is usually prohibited at camp). When the others find out, they use it behind Sponge's back and let him face the bum rap when they rack up an absurdly large phone bill. Sponge later laments that he's grounded for the rest of the summer, and if he comes back to camp the following summer, he'll still be grounded, and if he ever has kids and they come to the camp, they'll be grounded as well.
