* When Creator/TheBBC launched [=BBC2=] TV in 1964, the channel's stationery was headed by [[https://www.flickr.com/photos/aboutthebbc/6949612836/ a cartoon of a mother and baby kangaroo]]. For no good reason, the mother was called Hullabaloo and the baby was called Custard. A few months later when DavidAttenborough took over as controller of BBC 2, one of his first acts was to ditch Hullabaloo and Custard for being totally ridiculous.

* ''Literature/HortonHearsAWho'' (see below under Literature) has a kangaroo as the main antagonist, as has a Chuck Jones TV adaptation as well as a CGI film from Creator/IlluminationsEntertainment. {{Averted}} in both versions; aside from the fictional setting of the Jungle of Nool, in neither version does the kangaroo have an Australian accent (the TV version actually sounds like a snooty Brit). The CGI version even ignores the obvious "Joey" joke and [[NamedByTheAdaptation names the Small Kangaroo]] "Rudy" instead (probably because [[OneSteveLimit there was already a Who named Jojo]]).

* {{Averted}} in ''Literature/HortonHearsAWho:'' Sour Kangaroo is the villain (backed up by "the small kangaroo in her pouch"), but the setting is the fictional Jungle of Nool and there's nothing particularly Australian about them except their species. (If anything, they sound like snooty Brits.)

* A kangaroo can be seen adopting a frog in the episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' where Bart is forced to go to Australia to have his butt kicked for prank-calling them. When pursued, Bart and Homer attempt to get away in kangaroos' pouches, only to conclude that "[[ThisIsReality it's not like in cartoons]]".

* In ''Film/RiseOfTheGuardians'', Jack Frost pokes fun at Bunnymund's Australian accent by calling him the Easter Kangaroo. Of course, this is also ironic since rabbits are an invasive and highly destructive species in modern Australia.
