* 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.

[[spoiler: Considering it's the first instrument she said she had to find, but she doesn't use it for her One-Pony Band, the trope is borderline {{Parodied}} since she apparently [[GenreSavvy saw it coming.]]]]

* The CBS daytime version of ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' has one of the [[UrExample earliest examples]] and easily the [[TropeMaker most recognizable]], used after double overbids in the Showcase end game and many pricing game losses. These were also used on several other Goodson/Todman game shows. Heard on ''[[Series/DoubleDare1976 Double Dare]]'' and the original version of ''Series/CardSharks'' in truncated form, and the 1980s versions of ''Card Sharks'' in full. Consists of the first four notes of TPIR's main theme played off-key on a tuba, followed by a trombone "groan". Listen to it [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YrIj4I7ecg here.]]
