* ''[[TheEponymousShow The Tony Danza Show]]''. Tony for a time had this parrot named "Rocky" on the show and he would constantly try to get it to do tricks and it ''never'' cooperated with him.



[[AC:Web Original]]
* During ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}'' there were multiple issues with the neighbors' dogs, who would often bark in the background of scenes and force them to reshoot. There's also one point on the blooper reel where WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic is giving his big dramatic speech with his back to the camera ([[FilmingForEasyDub meaning that he can say whatever and just redub it later]]) and starts going into a rant about how annoying those dogs are and how he's going to shoot them.
* If a Let's Player has a pet that could make noise or disturb them, they will at one point do so.
** While [[LetsPlay/ChaoticMonki Cry's]] cat doesn't ''work'' persay, it does interrupt his recordings at times, distracting Cry from narrating.
--> "There is a cat on my lap."
** LetsPlay/{{Markiplier}} has two puppies of his own. Mind you, those puppies are big labrador or golden retrievers. Whenever he ends up filming since getting them, there is a real chance that he will pause at one point to tell Chica that she's not supposed on stealing his socks, on licking his legs or mess with his chair.
** A whole episode of SeaNanners was about how he and the other players had a great time being amused by Hutch's dog barking and whining in the background. Also the episode where Miles the cat decided to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YucIpFYCo8 use his 5 seconds of fame to purr loudly into the microphone]].
* ''WebVideo/{{Jontron}}'', who often includes his pet parrot Jacques in his videos, naturally has come upon this problem more than once. So far, the incidents we know about have been:
** Trying to bite Jon's lips and ears (usually just a FunnyBackgroundEvent, but there's at least one time it kept the video from continuing).
** Crapping on the floor while Jon was trying to explain something.
** Taking suicide leaps off Jon's desk while he's trying to explain the same thing.
** Trying to clean Jon's teeth, which rather resembled doing the head-in-lion's-mouth circus trick.
** Shrieking while Jon's trying to explain something (a different thing this time), interrupting him ''three'' times in a row.
-->'''Jontron:''' ''*during the latter incident*'' ...are you fucking serious?
** His other bird, Cinnamon, is apparently even worse, as even if she doesn't show up often she's acquired a tendency to chew on Jon's face, leaving gashes that require makeup to cover up later.
* In one episode of ''WebVideo/BestOfTheWorst'', the cast decided to destroy the worst movie (''Python II'') in homage to the "best" movie (''Beaks: The Movie'') by covering the VHS tape in birdseed and letting a bunch of seagulls attack it. They quickly discovered seagulls don't eat birdseed, and in fact flew away when Mike scattered seed near them.

* Belle's cart horse Philippe and Aladdin's monkey friend Abu were left out of the Broadway adaptations of ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' and ''Disney/Aladdin'', respectively, both for logistical reasons.

** Also shown in a documentary reel about the making of ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' were Creator/GeorgeLucas' problems with the snakes. During one scene, Lucas had set up a ring of torches to keep the snakes away, but being cold-blooded reptiles, they are naturally drawn to sources of heat and kept slithering nearer. At one point, he just grabs one by the 'neck' and stares it in the eyes, yelling:

* The beaded dress worn by Kate Capshaw in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom'' was eaten by an elephant. You can almost see it in the campfire at night scene, when the elephant's head is just out of frame? it's eating the dress in front of the entire crew. The good news? It was covered by insurance (Spielberg notes that all he could write on the insurance claim for "cause" was "[[ADogAteMyHomework dress eaten by elephant]]" and [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer hope he was believed]]). The bad news? It was a dress made of genuine vintage crystal beads.

* Wrestling/{{WCW}} booked a match between Wrestling/{{Sting}} and [[Wrestling/JakeRoberts Jake "The Snake" Roberts]] where the finish was for Jake to sic a (real, but devenomed) cobra on Sting, only to have it turn on him. But Jake couldn't get the snake to bite him, so he ended up holding it to his face while it flailed stupidly.

** You'd think they'd have learned what a bad idea this was from Jake's run in the WWF, specifically the time where he'd sicced his cobra on Wrestling/RandySavage while the Macho Man was tied up in the ring ropes. That time it had worked ''[[GoneHorriblyRight too]]'' well, as the (devenomised) snake sank its fangs into Savage's arm and wouldn't let go, forcing Jake to desperately try and dislodge the annoyed reptile from Savage while doing his best to preserve {{Kayfabe}}.

** Another InUniverse example occurs in a season one episode where Phil and Lil recall how they appeared in a diaper commercial. Problems first arise when Phil doesn't do what the director wants, then [[AdultFear Lil wanders off onto the scaffolding chasing after her toy car when the Best Boy was supposed to be watching her.]] The set ends up getting wrecked by the both of them. Oddly enough, the camera was recording everything, and the producers loved the footage that they saw. Even so, Betty, understandably, refused to let her kids do another commercial despite the director's plea.

* Some scenes in ''[[Film/RoadTo Road To Morocco]]'' feature a live camel, the presence of which led to an [[ThrowItIn unplanned gag]] when the animal [[SuperSpit spit]] in Creator/BobHope's face.

* On an episode of the kids' game show ''Series/FamilyChallenge'', host Ray Combs learned the hard way something that [[Series/ThePriceIsRight Bob Barker]] once told him: "never let the contestant hold the microphone." He handed the mic to a five-year-old contestant who socked him in the head with it hard enough to make him bleed. He spent the rest of the episode with a band-aid on his head.
