* There is a Myth/{{Norse|Mythology}} story in which Thor must disguise himself as Freya in order to trick the giants and get his hammer back (and yes, the hammer stands in for exactly what you think it does). The giants, who are apparently not all that familiar with human(oid) sexual dimorphism, fall for every one of Loki's excuses about why "Freya" looks so haggard, has such a big appetite and can eat an entire cow, has a ''beard'' and can drink so much mead in a single gulp.

Everything goes swimmingly until the hammer is brought out to bless the marriage, at which point Thor starts [[KickingAssInAllHerFinery Kicking Ass In All His Finery]].

* A Series/FullHouse episode titled "Fraternity Reunion" centers around Danny and Joey dressing as women in order to sneak their way into a sorority house reunion in order to take back a stuffed fraternity seal that was stolen from them in college. In typical Joey fashion he gets to into character and loses his wig in a limbo contest. Danny makes a mad dash for the seal and is subsequently revealed to the women as also being a man. They're both taken down by the women and are arrested by one of them who turns out to be a cop through some sort of TvTrope/HollywoodLaw no doubt.

* In the martial-arts films ''Come Drink With Me'' and its sequel ''Golden Swallow'', the female character Golden Swallow is able to pass as a man simply by wearing men's clothing. The fact that actress Creator/ChengPeiPei is an incredibly beautiful woman and makes no attempt to disguise her voice is unnoticed by almost everyone.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'', Betty and Wilma enter a television contest for cooking the best cake, and they win. The prize is a huge amount of money, except that they have to bake the cake on television in the show. Unfortunately, right at the wrong time, Betty and Wilma get the measles and are quarantined. Seeing the prospect of great money slipping away, Barney and Fred "disguise" themselves as women. They successfully maintain their disguises, and successfully bake the cake, but blow it by using "Brand B" flour instead of the advertised brand.

* As the page quote indicates, the WWII comedy ''Film/AllTheQueensMen'' (allegedly BasedOnATrueStory) completely destroys any possibility of seeming authentic because the actors (including EddieIzzard) make absolutely no attempt to be believable as women.

* ''BarneyMiller'' - the detectives were assigned to disguise themselves in drag to catch criminals - Dietrich took to the job with good humor, but never realized he just looked like a big guy in a dress.

* The Buffalo Brothers in ''Literature/{{Relativity}}'' are a pair of StupidCrooks. At one point, they need to get a message to the heroes, but they don't want to get caught, so they disguise themselves as old ladies. The disguises weren't very good, and probably wouldn't have worked anyway, but the fact that one of the brothers had a beard just made it beyond obvious.

* In ''Manga/DontenNiWarau'' Tenka disguises himself as a woman so he can spy on Chutaro. Since it's played for laughs it looks just way over the top and nobody's buying the disguise, anyway.
