* An episode of ''Series/WorstCooksInAmerica'' that coincided with ''actual'' Oktoberfest had it as a theme for the episode. Contestants had to make their own wurst using the meat grinder and sausage-filler attachment on a stand mixer...and use [[StockYuck natural casings]] for the sausages. There was also an appearance by a band wearing lederhosen.

* In the ''{{Discworld}}'', the human population of {{Uberwald}} is pretty much this trope. ''Quaffing''[[note]]spilling whilst swinging the mug woidly[[/note]] of beer from ornate ceramic mugs with badly secured lids, whilst singing jolly songs like ''Ich bin ein Rattedarschedschwein'', is a RunningGag

This has partly to do with the fact that many American units were assigned the southern part of Germany as their occupation zone at the end of WW II and as such most of their military personnel took their experiences of bucolic Bavaria as the archetype of all things German back home. hollywood and TV then ran with this selectibve memory. [[note]] A British joke about post-WW2 occupation is "The French got the wine. The Russians got the women. the Americans got the scenery. '''We''' got the rubble.[[/note]] Another contributing factor is that a significant portion of the German immigrants to America came from the rural regions of Southern and Eastern Germany - notably Bavaria. To this day one will find German Americans proudly operating [[TheGoodOldDays traditional]] Biergartens and breaking out the Lederhosen, steins, sausage, polka, and sauerkraut at any opportunity, much to the chagrin of any modern Germans trying to shed exactly this folksy image. While the intention is an honest celebration of their heritage, it can reach a point of MisaimedFandom and SelfParody at times, similar to the enthusiasm of those of [[{{Oireland}} Oirish]] [[UsefulNotes/TheIrishDiaspora descent]].

[[GermanHumor By the way, Germans do have a sense of humor]]. Although a stereotype, it's still better than [[ThoseWackyNazis the other thing Germany is known for.]] But not much. Invoking this stereotype will give you a very hard time making friends with any Germans.

It's pretty likely that the beer is being served by one of those wenches with gravity-defying blonde braids and big breasts pushed up by the 'uplift bodice' on her dirndl. If so, expect ''[[StandardSnippet Oh Du Lieber Augustin]].''

* In the ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' episode "The Bus Boy" there's a fat German boy in lederhosen (an {{Expy}} of Uter). His story involved him dancing around eating food and commenting how good it was.
