* In a version of the Christmas song "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" sung by Creator/JohnDenver and Series/TheMuppets, Miss Piggy ends up interrupting the song when Gonzo sings "Now give us some figgy pudding", thinking he said "''piggy'' pudding". He has to explain that he said ''figgy'' as the pudding is made of figs though, in annoyance, he mutters "and bacon".

* Sam Cooke's "Twistin' the Night Away" had an interesting lyric. "He's dancing with the chicken slacks." What the heck are chicken slacks?! (actual lyric is "he's dancing with the chick in slacks"). A Boston-based soul band, The Chicken Slacks, would later name themselves after the mondegreen and further reference it with a bumper sticker they sold at early shows: "I Danced With The Chicken Slacks".

* In one ''{{Partiallyclips}}'' comic, a musician realizes (mid-performance) that the lyrics to ''[[Music/TheBeatles Eleanor Rigby]]'' isn't "Picks up her eyes", which ruins his interpretation that Eleanor is some kind of alien. This completely ruins his appreciation of the song.

* This little bit from ''{{WebSite/Snopes}}'' on [[http://www.snopes.com/disney/films/rafiki.asp an old Disney picture/audio book]] certainly counts.

* LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys popularized a Mondegreen in the Western versions of the first ''VideoGame/MarioParty'' (as well as all versions of the sequel): Wario's losing quote. It's actually "''[[ForeignCussWord So ein mist!]]''" [[WordOfSaintPaul according to the voice actor]], but to English-speaking ears it sounds like [[MemeticMutation "D'oh, I missed!"]].

* This is half the humor of ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtHead'': standard phrases come into the duo's head and comes out as a DoubleEntendre.

* ''VideoGame/Overwatch'' has quite a few of these in the form of [[CallingYourAttacks ultimate callouts]], which are often in different languages, but perhaps the most notable was Zarya's "Ogon po gotovnosti" ("Fire at will!"), which sounded remarkably close to English upon hearing it, in the general vein of "I'm going for the tobelstein!" Lampshaded by Blizzard, where one of her unlockable sprays is titled "Tobelstein."
