* In an almost literal capacity, Jack Skellington in ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' gets it in his skull that he and the rest of Halloween Town's citizens can take over Christmas that year. They make presents for all of the children in the human realm (all of which designed to frighten rather than bring joy), kidnap Santa Claus with Jack replacing him (putting him in danger at the hands of local criminal Oogie Boogie), and essentially hijack the season. It is not until the National Guard ''literally'' blows Jack back to his senses (out of the sky) does he try to set things right.

* On ''WesternAnimation/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.

** A minor example: "[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E5TanksForTheMemories Tanks for the Memories]]" has Rainbow Dash trying to stop winter from coming so she can keep her pet turtle from hibernating. At one point she makes a face reminiscent of the Grinch's.

** "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E8AHearthsWarmingTail A Hearth's Warming Tail]]" is mostly YetAnotherChristmasCarol, but the start of Snowfall Frost's story is about her trying to ruin Hearth's Warming for everypony. It includes the aspect of stealing some strappings of the holiday, although in this case it's to use as components for her memory-erasing spell.
