* Despite being Japanese, ''Manga/{{Monster}}'' complete averts it and is actually one of the most realistic portrayals of the [[WestGermany Bonn]] and UsefulNotes/TheBerlinRepublic in non-German fiction. It even deals with the difficulties of [[EastGermany east German]] officals integrating into a new society that [[WhyWeAreBummedCommunismFell regards their former government as criminals]], which is quite difficult to explain to outsiders.

** The subtitle in ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory'' says "Düssel''heim''". Nevertheless, the town has a distinct Bavarian look. Which is ironic, since the entire movie (including all city scenes) was shot in and around Munich, essentially making all locations a subtle case of this.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'', a rather Bavarian-looking band plays in the background while Fievel and his family board their ship to America in ''Hamburg''. Sigh.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Series/StarTrek:DeepSpaceNine'' episode ''The Maquis, Part 1'', Benjamin Sisko is visited by his old friend Calvin Hudson. They reminisce about the time when they were stationed together in the New Berlin colony, and comment about how they looked like in lederhosen. Lederhosen in the New Berlin colony make about as much sense as ten-gallon Stetsons in the New Boston colony, but never mind.

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 selective 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]].

In Germany, everyone is fat, constantly [[GermanPeculiarities drunk on beer]], dressed in lederhosen suspenders, eats nothing but sausages and pretzels, and gets totally ticked off [[Series/FawltyTowers whenever somebody mentions]] [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII The War]]. If you're lucky, you might get a mention of more recent events - such as the BerlinWall and [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff David Hasselhoff]].
