* One of the ''[[TheUltimates Ultimate Avengers]]'' mini-series has a scene where the second Comicbook/BlackWidow refers her teammate Tyrone as an "African-American", despite the fact that he comes from England. Comicbook/WarMachine points this out and says that there's nothing offensive about calling him black, but Widow states that it still makes her uncomfortable and asks if "African-English" would be more appropriate.

* ''Series/{{Animaniacs}}'': During Slappy Squirrel's time as a golden age cartoon star, one of her adversaries was Beanie the Brain-Dead Bison. By the time of the show, the public has taken to referring him with the more PC term "the Cerebreally-Challenged Bison". Slappy, being who [[DeadpanSnarker she]] [[ScrewPolitenessImASenior is]], sticks with "Brain-Dead".



* There's an episode of ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' about prejudice. Near the end of the episode, Nozomu is about to have sex with a gay man because he thought that turning down his advances would be offensive. He did not enjoy it.

* In the ''{{Sealab 2021}}'' episode "Article 4", nearly everyone on Sealab abuses the affirmative action policy to get promoted to Captain... except for Quinn, who's [[OnlySaneMan too proud and too sensible,]] and Stormy, who's [[TheDitz too stupid]].

* In an episode of ''[[CliffordTheBigRedDog Clifford's Puppy Days]]'' the family was on a trip for "Fall Feast" instead of "Thanksgiving".
* In an episode of "WordGirl", Becky's family hosts a 'Holiday' party, where everyone brings their 'Holiday' cheese (which of course, Dr. Two-Brains steals). The thing is... Well, there's Christmas trees and all that, not really any sign of any OTHER holiday; and they even sing "Oh, Holiday Cheese," which has the exact tune as "O, Christmas Tree." The episode is named, "Oh, Holiday Cheese." Mr. Botsford also makes a reference to "The Christmas Song": "I'm gonna roast some nuts. And I'm gonna do it over an open fire!" There is a slight chance that all this was intentional...

** Speaking of which, SpeedyGonzales was a victim of this, as his cartoons were taken off the air for many years due to the idea that Mexicans would find the stereotyping offensive. The irony of it all is that [[MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales a whole lot of Mexicans actually LOVE Speedy]], and a few years and several petitions later, he's back on the air.

* When ''Richard Garriott's TabulaRasa'' was still running, it featured this trope for the holiday season. The AFS referred to it as "Seasonal Holiday Observance" or SHO, where major military bases would sport a "Festive Seasonal Holiday Observance Flora" (Christmas tree), under which soldiers could find "Holiday Hats" (a Santa Claus hat). The political correctness was probably tongue-in-cheek given the overblown military acronym style of the names.

* Common problem with "The Nigger of the Narcissus", a novel by nowadays classic JosephConrad... It has it in its title, so it is quite frequent to rise really heated debate in public libraries and schools. No racism intended in the novel, ''nigger'' being a completely acceptable term at the time for any black person.

** The HPLovecraft novella "The Rats in the Walls" features a black cat by the name "Nigger-Man", after Lovecraft's actual pet. It's changed (often creatively) in every adaptation.

* The English dub of ''Manga/{{Doraemon}}'' (as seen on DisneyXD) suffers this in spades. Among others, certain foods (including Doraemon's trademark dorayaki) were replaced with "healthy" alternatives (i.e., in order to remind the viewers of the importance of "healthy living"). However, Shizuka's doll being replaced by a diary is the purest (and thus, worst) example of this trope.
