* Parodied in ''TinyToonAdventures'': Babs and Buster Bunny are appalled by Montana Max's carnivorous eating habits so they [[TheLudovicoTechnique strap him in a chair]] and show him a {{Squick}}-filled informative video on how his food is made ("This next part is kind of graphic, those with weaker stomachs should turn to the DisneyChannel"). Their plan works and Max reforms, so Babs and Buster celebrate with a vegetarian dinner. And then their carrots begin to scream…

* In ''StarControl 3'' you encounter the Harika/Yorn, a symbiotic pairing of two intelligent species. The Harika can eat nothing but Yorn, and the Yorn consider being eaten by the Harika the ultimate fulfillment, or at least a necessary sacrifice (as the Yorn breed too quickly).

** Not related to advertising per se, but this troper is reminded of a (thankfully much safer for kids) FarSide cartoon [[HilariousInHindsight with a startlingly similar premise]]. In this case, the victims are a group of cavemen who end up in the T-rex's mouth - and are promptly spat out after it finds what they taste like (they live, don't worry). The caption? [[CrossesTheLineTwice "In the days before soap."]]

* A sketch in [[WesternAnimation/MAD]] involved Mickey Mouse offering rat extermination services. He references this trope, pointing out how people are fine with a pig mascot that sells bacon, but not with a rat that captures mice.

* A very rare non-anthropomorphic example in {{Spongebob Squarepants}}. While cooking Krabby Patties, Spongebob falls madly in love with one of the patties, naming it [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Patty]]. After saving it from a customer order by replacing it with a shoe, he dates the sandwich in a [[FallingInLoveMontage montage]] such as going to the fair, rescuing it from hungry clams, riding down the river, and having dinner with it back at the Krusty Krab restaurant. Oblivious to the fact that his date has completely spoiled, Mr. Krabs forced him to accept that krabby patties are meant to be loved and eaten. Accepting this, Spongebob eats the rancid patty out of love and gets sick afterwards.
