* The ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' episode 'Legends' sends GL, Flash, Hawkgirl and Martian Manhunter to a dimension that's [[RetroUniverse one giant silver age pastiche]]. Naturally there are exactly two cops in town, both red-haired Irish types with broad accents.

* ''Space Precinct'', a "Cops in Space" show made by Creator/GerryAnderson, starred [[strike:Gary Ewing]] Ted Shackleford as veteran former New York cop Patrick Brogan, but the Irish accent came from [[DaChief Captain Podly]], an alien played by an actor with a giant puppet head. Ridiculous stereotypical accent aside, Podly was still a perfectly competent cop and got a few badass moments.

* ''Film/LittleAnnieRooney'': A silent film can't demonstrate Officer Rooney's ethnicity with accents, so the title cards have him say stuff like
"'Tis proud I am."

* Frankenberry met a cop like this in one commercial where he was terrified of the Ghost Marshmallows in his cereal. ("What's with all the hankie-pankie, Frankie?" says the officer.)

* Invoked in ''TheJackBennyProgram'' whenever they did a mystery sketch: Jack played "that master super-sleuth, Captain O'Benny", and other characters playing his assistants got O's added to their names too: O'Harris, O'Day, O'Wilson... Although when Dennis Day tried to ham up the role with an Irish accent, Jack told him to "cut out the dialect".

* Comics where MickeyMouse is a detective (often Mickey's on-again, off-again freelance job) have a beefy uniformed police chief named O'Hara as Mickey's boss. He originally appeared with an accent, though in the 1960s it was dropped. In a few later cartoons (notably on ''HouseOfMouse''), O'Hara did appear with an accent. And it's back, too, in most new comics produced since the 1990s. It must be noted that with or without the accent, Mickey's O'Hara is a competent, long-suffering cop whose real problem isn't his own weakness -- it's that his chief of detectives, Mr. Casey, is an [[PoliceAreUseless overconfident blunderer]] (whom Mickey has inadvertently upstaged many times, leading to a friendly rivalry).
