* The 1960 ''{{Popeye}}'' cartoon "I Yam Wot I Yamnesia" takes this to absurd psycho-semantic extremes. Popeye, Olive, Wimpy and Swee'Pea are enjoying a day in each's company, and while Popeye is playing "bullfight" with Swee'Pea, he conks his head and in the process conks Swee'Pea in the head. The two suddenly exchange personalities and voices with each other. In attempting to cure them with a mallet, Wimpy hits himself and Olive in the head, causing ''them'' to switch personalities and voices.

* ''TheFlintstones'' often had Fred switch to an alternate persona as a result of a bowling ball to the head. Years later, an episode of ''HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw'' ("The Dabba Don") would reference this, as Harvey uses the Bowling Ball To The Head defense to explain Fred's apparent Mob connections.
