* It wasn't caused by poor housekeeping, but ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' has a demon god and hell dimension hidden in [[Creator/SigourneyWeaver Dana Barrett]]'s fridge. There are no cold cuts, only ZUUL!! Of course, when Venkman inspects her fridge later on, he does tease her about her eating habits.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' has two examples. One is in "Welcome to the Chum Bucket"; when [=SpongeBob=] is trying to cook a patty in an unfamiliar stove, the burger grows a hand and starts crawling towards him. A later episode had "The Appetizer" from "Squilliam Returns", which Mr. Krabs had to fight off with a chair.
** Then there's "Born Again Krabs" where Spongebob finds an old patty underneath the grill. After multiple unsuccessful attempts from Mr. Krabs to sell it, Spongebob put it in a cage because it ''growled'' at him.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' has the episode ''Dr C And the Women'' where the guys return to Clevelands old delikatessen, which was abandoned when he moved to Stoolbend. Peter proceeds to eat some leftover egg salad that has been standing in room temperature for 6 years, and when he gets bad stomach cramps from that, [[TooDumbToLive he tries washing it down with some milk]].

* The first episode of the 1983 British sketch show ''{{Alfresco}}'' has a song about a couple who are so lazy they haven't cleaned the house for decades and there are alien lifeforms in possession of the fridge and kitchen. Never mind - the house is on fire so all they have to do is wait and their problems will all be over.

* In an episode of ''MarriedWithChildren'', metal band Anthrax is snowed in at the Bundy's house. Desperate for food, they eat "Mom's mystery pack", a foil-wrapped substance that apparently not even Al will touch. It's described as moving and hot (despite being in a refrigerator), and causes hallucinations among the band, and later on sings along with Edd "Kookie" Byrnes.

* There was a brilliant running gag in one episode of ''{{Roseanne}}'' involving a carton of milk that's been left in the fridge too long.

* ''BlackBooks'' has more than one example. When they call a cleaner (after a scene of Bernard: "I was gonna warm it [a frozen pizza] and eat it later. Everybody does that, that's normal! You are looking for things to complain about!" Manny: "What do you call these?" Bernard: "Wasps!"), he does the trick of putting on a white glove, streaking it across something, and the fingertip comes away black. The thing he chooses to sweep across? The air.

* According to rumor, there's a carton of milk that was left in a dorm refrigerator at MIT so long that the cardboard started to break down. The students responded by [[DuctTapeForEverything wrapping it in duct tape]] and have supposedly continued adding more duct tape whenever the old tape started to fail. At this point, it's nothing but a giant wad of duct tape that may or may not have once contained a milk carton at one point.

* In somewhat of a subversion, in a later ''Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' sequel, Arthur Dent eats the least hairy things in his fridge after returning to Earth after a long expedition in space, thus killing a disease which would have otherwise wiped out half a hemisphere.

Added DiffLines:

* In the original version of ''Series/TheMuppetShow'', Gonzo goes to SpecialGuest John Denver for help, saying he thinks his mold garden is plotting against him. He claims the talking, mobile fungus appeared because he forgot to clean his refrigerator before going on vacation, and the moldy food that resulted was "too cute to throw away". (Then the fungus appears, telling him they need the refrigerator light replaced, again, because "we were playing puffball and Reggie hit a ''long'' one.")
