* Notably averted in the case of Honest Ed's, a long-lasting department store in Toronto known for its very reasonable prices. They even gave out free turkeys every year at (Canadian) Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, [[BeingGoodSucks lack of sales]] has driven them to close down in 2016.

** Daffy Duck frequently played the role of a pushy door-to-door salesman strong-arming a reluctant character into buying unwanted goods, as in ''The Stupor Salesman'', "Fool Coverage" and ''Design for Leaving''. In "Dime to Retire", he runs a hotel offering rooms for the meager cost of ten cents a night, and makes his money by releasing various animals into the room and charging guest Porky Pig outrageous "exterminator" fees to get rid of them. And, in "Daffy Dilly", he's shown to be a loud-mouthed street peddler trying to sell joke novelties to an uninterested crowd.
