* The ''[[HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw Harvey Birdman]]'' episode, "Sebben & Sebben New Employee Orientation / Juicer Instruction" video has a number of instances where the audio or filmstrip skips, skipping a piece of information that was about to be disclosed, or connecting two unrelated topics in the middle of the narration. As well as, of course, cutting away from the Employee Orientation into how to use your new juicer.

* ''Film/BlazingSaddles''. As Bart approaches Rock Ridge, Gabby Johnson's shouts are obscured by the tolling of a bell, and are misheard by Sam Johnson as "The sheriff is near".

* ''Film/BlazingSaddles''. As Bart approaches Rock Ridge, Gabby Johnson's shouts are obscured by the tolling of a bell, and are misheard by Sam Johnson as "The sheriff is near". It doesn't help that Gabby's normal speech is peppered with "authentic frontier gibberish".

* Played for laughs in the ''HancocksHalfHour'' TV episode "The Radio Ham". Our hero is a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amateur_Radio ham radio operator]] who receives a Mayday call from a sinking yacht, but is unable to write down its position because events - a power failure, an angry neighbour and a blown circuit - keep preventing him. Eventually the yacht is saved by one of Hancock's regular correspondents, much to his disgust, and he gives up the hobby.

Added DiffLines:

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/DonkeyKongCountry'' Diddy and Funky are in Funky's biplane and are told by DK over the radio NOT to read a certain piece of paper that has a terrible spell on it. Unfortunately due to static the "not" part gets cut out of the message.

* In Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy, a Grebulon ship (which is on an exceptionally long-haul flight across the galaxy and whose crewmembers are in stasis) suffers this with their orders after an asteroid ripped through their ship which destroyed the system which held their identites and their mission plan. The only instructions they end up with are to land a safe distance from something and monitor it.

* ''[[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh Tron 2.0]]'' is loaded with this. For about three-quarters of the game, Jet's receiving incomplete, cryptic, and static-filled transmissions from Ma3a or "Guest." In "Guest's" case [[spoiler: it turns out Alan is making do with an old arcade game and junk from the storage closet he's locked in]]. Unfortunately, the poor communication ''does'' kill [[spoiler: Alan doesn't realize it's his son that's trying to help Ma3a]] and Jet doesn't get the message [[spoiler: ''not'' to compile the Tron Legacy ([[Film/TronLegacy no relation]]) code]] until it is ''way'' too late.

* In this ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'' [[http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/2004-08-09/ strip]], the PointyHairedBoss calls Dilbert and says "Go through my desk and look up the billing codes". Due to poor cell phone reception in the Boss's area, what Dilbert hears is "Go throw my desk off the building." Due to the fact that nobody likes the boss, Dilbert and Alice do just that [[http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/2004-08-10/ the next strip]].
