* An epsiode of the short-lived ''WesternAnimation/GeorgeOfTheJungle'' [[ContinuityReboot reboot]] has George contract a rash called "Itchy Swell-itis". The only cures are to down [[IfItTastesBadItMustBeGoodForYou a bitter-tasting medicine]] or refrain from scratching it. Since George lacks the self-control to do either, his friends step in via a ConeOfShame. This causes George to think that being "supportive" means not letting someone do what they want, and flees, discovering a hidden utopia full of animals in the same boat as he, and happily spend their lives perpetually scratching themselves. Thus, George [[MisfitMobilizationMoment rouses them all to band together]] and teach their friends the error of their supportive ways. Now you're probably thinking the Aesop will be something along the lines of "sometimes it is necessary to endure unpleasant things", or "what you want and what you need are often two different things, and those who care about you have to put what's needed first". However, never once is there shown a downside to scratching at a jungle rash the rest of one's life, and George's friends pretend to be swayed by their performance, only to [[SlippingAMickey trick them into taking the medicine]].

* ''Fanfic/EigaSentaiScanranger'' was written to give the author an outlet to vent his hatred of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' and glorify ''Franchise/SuperSentai'', but he seemed to forget to say what kind of show he '''wanted''' if ''Power Rangers'' was all wrong. The obvious answer would be he just wanted translated Sentai shows, but with how ''Scanranger'' was about an all-original team of wisecracking multi-ethnic heroes protecting America from LaughablyEvil space aliens, it seems more like it was ''based on'' ''Power Rangers'' than anything.

* The ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' episode "Walk on the Wild Side" seems to start out with a "girl power" message, as the female mutants form a crime-fighting team after they get fed up of not being appreciated after Scott's ChronicHeroSyndrome causes him to act like a shining knight and unthinkingly ruins the Aesop Jean was trying to teach Amara. Towards the ending, Cyclops and Nightcrawler decide to spy on the girls as they track down and confront a gang. The girls finally call it quits when a female police officer tells them that what they're doing is wrong... But after they leave, the policewoman turns out to be Mystique in disguise. Plus, saying "you shouldn't form a vigilante crimefighting group" is a moral that will probably never work when fronted by something like ''X-Men''.
