It's interesting that a movie may have given impetus for another practice: blurring people's lips when they say an obscenity that has been "beeped" over. In the movie ''Film/TheBestLittleWhorehouseInTexas'' his deputy tells the sheriff how a local TV station broadcast a tirade the sheriff made when he came in contact with the reporter: "They bleeped you out but my momma read your lips on every 'hell', 'goddam' and 'shit'." So now, a number of programs not only 'bleep' someone's bad word, they also blur the area of their lips so you can't read them.

* To learn a new spell, Kukuri in ''Anime/MahoujinGuruGuru'' must watch the Kita Kita dance because the hip movements trace out a [[GeometricMagic magic circle]] she can use. Unfortunately, the only person around who knows this dance is an old man who wears a grass skirt. Fortunately, when Kukuri forces herself to watch the dance is pixellated for us viewers. Unfortunately, this is the only time this happens and the Old Kita Kita Man becomes a recurring character.

* ''Manga/YuruYuri'': Most things Chinatsu makes are pixellated. On the occasions where we get to see them, the reason for this practice becomes apparent: she is ''[[TerribleArtist that bad]]'' at artistic pursuits.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' plays this for comedy. If you try to cook something using ingredients that are incompatible, the resulting "dubious food" is so gross that it gets pixeled out.
