* In an old ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short, Porky enters a bullfighting competition and has two friends dressed as a bull for him to fight. The friends get drunk and wander off, so Porky ends up fighting the real bull. It's only when the two guys appear singing drunkenly on the sidelines that Porky realizes the trouble he's in and starts running.
** In another, Elmer is stripped of most of his clothes by Bugs, and when he is about to gives chase, an officer shows up to arrest Elmer for indecency. However, as the officer is dragging Elmer away, he gets sidetracked by the Bugs Bunny cartoon that's playing and forces Elmer in so he can watch. In the [[ShowWithinAShow cartoon-within-the-cartoon]], Elmer sees Bugs dress up as an officer that looks identical to the one sitting next to him. Realizing the implications, he rips off the "officer's" disguise... only to find out that he's a ''real human police officer'', resulting in Elmer getting into ''even more'' trouble.
