* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', "Swarm of the Century", Ponyville gets overrun with locust-like creatures called parasprites. The parasprites are eventually led back to the Everfree Forest, but by that point the town has been thoroughly ransacked, and Pinkie Pie [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DI7YDIaU-4I literally plays a sad trombone]] to close out the episode.
