* The Milton Berle "Makeup!" variation happens to Mr. [=MacAfee=] during the Ed Sullivan Show scene (it's plausible that this was done by the in-universe stage crew for the specific purpose of getting him to shut up, as he's being a bit of a pain).

* Shows up in ''Film/LordOfTheRings'', if you can believe that. Will Whitfoot, mayor of Michel Delving and the fattest hobbit in the Shire, is caught in the collapse of the Town Hole and emerges covered in chalk, thus earning the nickname "Flourdumpling". It happens off screen -- er, off page -- but still, there you are.
* The ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' episode "In Like Ed" featured this gag, produced by a baking powder smoke bomb [[ShoePhone shaped like a jawbreaker]].
** "Smile For the Ed" had Ed shouting "Makeup!" and ''poof''ing Eddy through the wall with a chalkboard eraser. The episode ends with him doing it to himself, producing this trope.

* ScoobyDoo has done this more than once, at one time this was the complete disguise for the [[MonsterOfTheWeek villain of the week]] who covered himself in flour. Must have been very convincing because when Shaggy and Scooby get covered in the stuff he thinks they're ghosts.
