* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' has Fred and Barney trying to help a pop-music group that has an "alien" gimmick get to the concert, at the same time that the radio announcer uses an ad [[WhatAnIdiot that says nothing more that "the aliens are coming! Run!"]] [[YouMayPanicNow in a very dramatic and alarming]] ''Radio/WarOfTheWorlds''-style fashion, and ''this'' makes the rest of Bedrock pull out the TorchesAndPitchforks.

Run!"]] [[YouMayPanicNow coming!" in a very dramatic and alarming]] ''Radio/WarOfTheWorlds''-style fashion, and ''this'' makes the rest of Bedrock pull out the TorchesAndPitchforks.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' episode "Smells Like Victory", an experiment gone wrong leaves Dexter's lab all smelly and dirty, which leads to a paranoid general mistaking it for a ground base for "evil filthy aliens". Meanwhile, Dexter is convinced by a garbled transmission that the safety-mask-wearing soldiers busting into his lab are the evil filthy aliens.

* One episode of ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' had Honey's younger brother Yasuchika accuse him of being an alien simply because he eats three cakes at once ''in less than a second'' once a week.
* ''FrankenFran'' helps an actress who has fallen for a male lead who is obsessed with anime features, and wants to star opposite him in live-action adaptations. She insists on ever more extensive surgery but fails to take Fran's advice at the hazards in her rush to bed the actor, and cosmetically falls to pieces. He flees in terror, then goes on so many talk shows raving about Grays trying to abduct him that he doesn't get any more roles.
* A running gag in ''ShinryakuIkaMusume'' - [[HotScientist Cindy Campbell]] and her [[StupidScientist colleagues]] are convinced that [[CuteMonsterGirl Ika Musume]] is from outer space, and they would very much like her to [[TheyWouldCutYouUp visit their laboratory]].

* In SpiderRobinson's ''The Free Lunch'', when the protagonists notice that there's something very odd about some of the attendees at the theme park where they live, their initial deduction is aliens. [[AuthorAppeal This being Spider Robinson]], however, they're actually time travellers.
