In classic ''Scooby-Doo'' style they manage house attraction, and ends up standing in front of a medieval display just as {{Mook}}s are coming in from all sides. Fred announces that he has a plan; the camera pulls away for ''three seconds''; we pull back to the display, and the group has somehow managed to climb into two suits of armor in two seconds flat.(Fred and Shaggy), a full princess ensemble (Daphne), a bearded scholar's outfit (Velma), and a metallic gargoyle (Scooby).

* The ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' episode "Helga's Locket" sees Helga trying to recover her locket with Arnold's picture--which she's just engraved with both her name and a poem declaring her love--from Arnold's Grandpa after she drops it. At one point, she sneaks into the boarding house basement just when Grandpa and Arnold are trying to open the locket, and quickly disables the fuse box to keep them from seeing the engraving. Helga grabs the jewelry and hides a nearby box when the lights come on, and Grandpa, being GenreSavvy, pulls open the lid to find the thief...however, the box [[ContrivedCoincidence just so happens]] to be filled with mannequin heads. Helga remains still and manages to escape detection (despite being the only "mannequin" with, you know, ''hair and facial features'').
