* ''What on Earth'', an old Canadian cartoon by Kaj Pindal which purports to be an educational film by Martians, who looked down on the earth and naturally assumed that cars were the dominant life-form, and humans some kind of parasite they hadn't gotten around to ridding themselves of.

* Ford Prefect of ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' uses his name because he believed that cars were the dominant species. To explain the joke to foreign audiences (because the Ford Prefect was only sold in England), the film adaptation shows that Arthur first met Ford when Ford stepped into the street to shake hands with an oncoming car (an actual Ford Prefect to boot) and Arthur saved his life by tackling him out of the way. [[note]] While it's not obvious at first, in the ''Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy'' canon, humans aren't the dominant species on Earth. In fact, we're only the third most intelligent species on the planet, after mice and dolphins.[[/note]]

* ''Good Boy!'' ultimately subverts this trope: The aliens in question ''are'' dogs, and they had sent some of their number to earth to colonize it and subjugate humanity in the first place, so the inevitable listing of the ways dogs are "really in charge" does occur. But Hubble, the dog sent to check up on their progress, is ultimately not impressed. And neither is his superior, who apparently had something more like total enslavement in mind.
