HilarityInZoos is, essentially, just that sort of situation. Whenever a group of characters goes to the zoo, it's almost a given that ''something'' is going to happen. It might be played for either comedy or drama, but inevitably, as you might expect, AnAmusingCircumstanceOfSomeSortOccurs. A natural way to invoke EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys, but on the other hand, they might be ManiacMonkeys instead. May also lead to a hilarious EscapedAnimalRampage.

** The first from "Comicbook/WelcomeBackFrank", where Ma Gnucci and her {{Mooks}} pursued Frank into a zoo, and he, without much in the way of weapons, used the animals to fend them off, culminating in a darkly hilarious fate for Ma Gnucci herself.

* In ''AvatarTheLastAirbender'', Aang visits a zoo in Ba Sing Se. The animals are all in small cages and the zookeeper explains that the city won't give him any more money because nobody is visiting, so he can't improve conditions for the animals. Aang suggests building a new zoo outside the walls of the city, and offers to take the animals there himself. After all, he's the Avatar, so animals will listen to him! Naturally, HilarityEnsues as he tries to lead a massive group of wild animals outside of the city.
* In one episode of ''AngryBeavers'', Norbert gets arrested for a crime Dagget committed and sent to a zoo, which turned out to be a 5-star resort for animals.

* BeavisAndButthead join a zoo tour, hoping the guide will talk about the animals "doing it", which she only does after they leave in boredom. While they're in the reptile house there's a momentary power outage that gets them in a panic, and when the lights come back on they're in a compromising position, inadvertently holding each others...snakes.
