* On an episode of ''GarfieldAndFriends'', this is how Garfield distinguishes Odie from a set of robotic clones: the ''real'' one's head sounds hollow. * In an episode of ''TinyToonAdventures'', Buster is climbing out of a hole in the ground and calls out to Babs that he's "spelunking". When she assures him that there is "a medicine you can get for that", he shoots [[AsideGlance a pained glance at the camera]] and knocks on her forehead, which gives off a hollow metallic sound. * In one episode of ''RockosModernLife'', Filbert does this to Heffer not because Heffer's normally stupid[[note]]he is, but that's beside the point[[/note]], but because he's become completely non-responsive. Rocko and Filbert realize that this is because Heffer's brain has literally been stolen by the TV and they have to voyage inside to get it back.

* An Al Brodax {{Popeye}} cartoon had Popeye playing "Yankee Doodle" by knocking on his head and manipulating his mouth to produce the sound of a vibraphone. * ''WesternAnimation/TheBeatles'' cartoon "We Can Work It Out" concludes with the boys agreeing that they'll have good luck as long as they stay together, and, saying in unison "Knock wood!", they knock on Ringo's head.

It looks better this way when unformatted.
* In ''The Gendarme and the Extra-Terrestrials'', the titular policemen are trying to prevent an AlienInvasion. Their only clue is that the aliens are made of metal and so their bodies sound hollow when you strike them. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxndAfkyzAs Panic almost sets when the characters discover that ''their'' heads are hollow as well]].

* Unusually used as an actual plot point rather than (just) a brief gag in ''CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory''. In both the book and the second film, Veruca Salt is tested by squirrels to see whether she is a 'bad nut', bad nuts sounding empty when tapped. A squirrel taps her on the forehead, and when this produces a hollow sound, they dump her down the garbage chute with the other 'bad nuts'.

* Combined with InOneEarOutTheOther in ''LoadedWeapon1''. When Emilio Estevez romantically blow's into Kathy Ireland's right ear we hear a sound like someone blowing across the top of an empty beer bottle and the hair covering Kathy's left ear billows in the breeze.

spelling and clarification
* In one episode of ''RockosModernLife'', Filbert does this to Heifer not because Heifer's normally stupid, but because he's become non-responsive. Rocko and Filbert realize that this is because Heifer's brain has literally been stolen by the TV and they have to voyage inside to get it back.
