* The second book of ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' repeats the Bonanza line several times - each time swearing to never use it again afterward.

* The children's book called 'The Meanwhile adventures', part of the Rover's adventures series by Roddy Doyle, is riddled with this trope, as is the basis of the entire plot.

* Parodied in the film ''SpacedInvaders'' as Blaznee spins through the radio dial while stuck on board the spaceship while it's hidden in the barn as "Meanwhile, elsewhere on the planet..." which lets him discover that the whole invasion [[spoiler: was caused by misinterpreting the Orson Welles ''War of the Worlds'' Halloween radio broadcast being done by a local radio station]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/AllInTheFamily'': "[AllInTheFamilyS8E3EdithsFiftiethBirthday|Edith's 50th Birthday]]" cuts between the attempted rape scene in the Bunkers' living room and the Stivic house, where Archie and Mike are arguing over the whereabouts of a punchbowl for the surprise party they've got planned for Edith.
* ''Series/{{Bonanza}}'': The Season 14 premiere, "Forever," uses this very darkly. When Mr. Sloan, a ruthless gambler, is unable to convince Little Joe's wife, Alice, to give up her music box and she attempts to flee, Sloan sics his giant muscleman on her to brutally beat her up. Viewers are spared watching a one-sided beating; instead, we see the trope kick in with Joe, Candy and Ben at work on the Ponderosa, anticipating what they think will be a hearty supper and an evening of visiting and fellowship with family over at Joe's new home.

* Parodied in ''[[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Movie]]'': "Meanwhile, thousands of miles away" was stated at [[RunningGag almost every scene change]], even when the scene was shifting between two rooms in a building. This is [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/index.php?title=Yu-Gi-Oh:_The_Abridged_Movie_-_Transcript&diff=309642&oldid=309637 alleged]] (anonymously) to be yet another ''Creator/MontyPython'' reference, but the closest actual ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' quote would be "Meanwhile, not very far away..."
* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhGXTheAbridgedSeries'': Meanwhile, At the toolshed...
* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'':
** The narrator says the Bonanza line to cue a scene of the all the side characters talking about the earlier series when they actually, y'know, did things besides watch fights on TV and collect the corpses afterward. The subsequent scene shift is the narrator delivering a deadpan "Meanwhile, back at the ''plot''..."
** Done a few other times, too, including the Hall of Justice version once.
* In ''Fanfic/TheSecretLifeOfDolls'', Creator/CleolindaJones parodies this, linking to this trope page:
-->''I will leave behind the Middle-earthers (and the annoyerist fugitives) for a moment, if only so that I get to say, "Meanwhile, back at the ranch" and mean it literally. So. Meanwhile, back at the ranch..."''
