* On TheRealGhostbusters episode "The Halloween Door," a [[[MoralGuardians a prudish old man who hates Halloween]] invents a device that will make all the paraphernalia of Halloween disappear. The consequences in the supernatural world are dire, for this allows a horde of demons to return to Earth. And true to the "stealing Halloween" plot, Halloween is restored because the "true meaning of Halloween" is the joy of children at play, and a little girl (who even looks a lot like Cindy Lou) expresses her faith and lack of fear in standing up to the demon lord. The Grinch figure, in spite of having seen the chaos, still [[NeverMyFault denies that it was his fault]], and continues to hate Halloween and wish to suppress it.

* ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'' had one where Lois took away Christmas until the boys behaved themselves, which they did, until they decided to sneak behind her back to open the presents. Though Lois herself [[HeelRealization regretted stealing Christmas five minutes into it]], as part of [[{{Anvillicious}} the episode's moral]] that only the most black-hearted person would try to steal Christmas, a holiday the show defines as "unconditional generosity".
