* In one sketch on ''The Carol Burnett Show'', Carol was a queen and Tim Conway was an inept guard. Harvey Korman, as the king, wanted to know why such an inept person would be assigned to the royal personage. Carol said that Tim got the position through meritorious action in combat � he had swallowed a grenade. She opened Tim's mouth and spoke into it. "Hello...lo...lo...lo...lo."

* On one episode of the "Disneyland" series, WaltDisney demonstrates the use of sound effects on cartoons with the help of DonaldDuck. He shows how the right sound effect can make Donald's head seem hollow when it is hit by a mallet. Donald is not amused, especially when the demonstration moves on to heavier objects.
* 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.

[[AC: {{Anime}} & {{Manga}}]]
* Baikinman from ''Franchise/{{Anpanman}}'' is like this.

[[AC: {{Commercials}}]]
* The people who "Could've Had a V-8" get a DopeSlap accompanied by a hollow sound effect.
* Used in a Guinness beer commercial starring Rutger Hauer as Draught Guinness and Rutger Hauer as Canned Guinness.
-->'''Draught Guinness:''' Just so you can tell us apart, he sounds different.
-->'''Canned Guinness:''' ''(Identical voice)'' Do I?
-->''Draught taps on Canned's head. There is a hollow metallic clang.''
-->'''Canned Guinness:''' I see what you mean.

[[AC: {{Film}}]]
* Combined with InOneEarOutTheOther in ''Film/LoadedWeapon1''. When Emilio Estevez romantically blows into Creator/KathyIreland'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.
* Film/TheThreeStooges did this whenever they hit each other in the head (which is often), especially Curly.

[[AC: {{Literature}}]]
* Unusually used as an actual plot point rather than (just) a brief gag in ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory''. In the book and most adaptations, Veruca Salt is tested by squirrels to see whether she is a "bad nut" -- bad nuts sound empty when tapped -- when she tries to claim one of them for herself. A squirrel taps her on the forehead, and when this produces a hollow sound, they dump her where all bad nuts go -- down a garbage chute.

* 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.
