* An early sketch on ''Donny & Marie'' has Nipsey Russell making a NewhartPhoneCall to the plumber from his flooded kitchen.

* In an early ''Series/SesameStreet'' Muppet sketch, Ernie has just come out of the bath, but he has forgotten something. As Bert tries to guess what Ernie forgot, Ernie realizes that he forgot to turn off the bathtub faucet. At the end of the sketch, the apartment has filled with water.



* In ''TheSimpsons'' episode where Lisa has to contend with being the authority figure of the house when Marge ended up injured from a clock falling on her, Lisa is calling Marge, and it's revealed after briefly talking to Marge that Lisa is currently on a stool in a flooded house, with Homer and Bart playing Marco Polo. It's strongly implied that Bart and Homer caused the flood.
** Homer did a variation in the beginning of one episode, where the entire house was covered in waterfalls before running out of the house to go to Moes, although in this case, we actually ''see'' how he did it: After the kids were unable to take a bath due to the water heater being broken, Homer attempts to fix it with a crowbar, thus causing the water heater to explode in a geyser.
* In the ''{{Popeye}}'' cartoon "Happy Birthdaze", he brings new friend Shorty to Olive's house. Shorty uses the bathroom to wash up, and when Popeye opens the door, a flood of water washes him down the sewer in the road. ''Twice.''

** In another ''Popeye'' short, "Floor Flusher", Popeye and Bluto flood Olive Oyl's house as they try to fix a broken pipe under her kitchen sink.



* Preventing this trope is why, if the temperature drops below 32 degrees Fahrenheit/0 Celsius, you should have all faucets both indoors and outdoors turned on just enough to drip - which leaves water and air circulating through the system enough to prevent pipes from freezing and bursting.

* In ''FoxTrot'', during the time where Roger has to housesit for Andy while she's out of town, Roger is calling her reporting what's going on at the house, and wonders when she's going to be back. The final panel reveals that he is waist-deep in a flooded kitchen; Jason remarks that even ''he'' knew how to properly operate the dishwasher (implying that Roger messed up so badly on the dishwasher that it resulted in the flood). They eventually got rid of the flood before Andy gets back, although not without having to contend with a swamp.

* ''CalvinAndHobbes'' had Calvin calling his dad at work, apparently to make small talk. The final panel reveals the real reason he's calling: He somehow managed to flood the house, and the waterline is high enough to reach the top of the stool that Calvin is currently on. The next strip references this event, where Calvin's father retorts angrily after Calvin gives him the poll results of his "reign" as dad, revealing that the reason he took away dessert from Calvin is that Calvin flooded the house.
