* ''WesternAnimation/TheRoadToElDorado'' used a sort of variant of the theme: When Tulio asks Miguel to think carefully about what Chel meant to both of them, a little bell can be heard as if symbolizing Miguel's thought process. When he comes to his conclusion ("Chel is... off-limits?"), a bell goes off like a game-show timer.

\n* Used at one point in [[TheFilmOfTheSeries the feature film adaptation]] of ''Series/TheBeverlyHillbillies''', when Elly May mentions that Beverly Hills has smog. Granny asks, "What's a smog?", and as the Clampetts ponder the matter, a truncated version of the original "Think!" cue plays, after which Jethro deduces: "[[ComicallyMissingThePoint I reckon it's a small hog.]]"

* ''Jeopardy!'' itself capitalized on this by changing its own theme tune to an upbeat remix of "Think!" in 1984. Various other themes had been used during the Art Fleming-hosted versions of the show (the original 1964-75 theme was called "Take Ten" and was written by Merv Griffin's wife at the time, Julann).

* In ''Film/TheSantaClause'', the theme plays while Scott Calvin's co-workers wait for him to finish eating.
* In ''Film/MusicAndLyrics'', Alex Fletcher plays the tune on the piano in hope of inspiring Sophie to write. It only makes her more nervous.

While he's thinking, [[IdeaBulb a lightbulb rises from his hat]] and the first eight notes of "Think!" plays. When he gets an idea, the bulb lights up, and his next line: "Go, go, gadget oil slick."
