* No matter what he's doing, as long as he's in a semi-private place (like ''his office''), Sanderson of ''SomethingPositive'' is always, ''always'' seen with whiskey in his hand. Davan can sometimes be seen with a hip flask, which he once left unattended for several months, leading to his roommate, father, and foster sister accidentally mixing him a GargleBlaster.

* On ''TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack'', Captain K'nuckles regularly takes swigs from a flask of maple syrup -- and then shudders like he [[GRatedDrug just took a shot of whiskey]]. And then there was the time he chugged the whole flask and fell down the stairs.

** In "Larry and Steve," Creator/SethMacFarlane's ''WesternAnimation/WhatACartoonShow'' short which served as a prototype for ''Family Guy'', an airplane pilot who strongly resembles Glenn Quagmire in both appearance and voice lets a young boy take over piloting his plane while he goes to "take a wee nip of the creature." This can be considered GettingCrapPastTheRadar due to the short airing on CartoonNetwork and is also HilariousInHindsight knowing Quagmire's later sex-crazed personality, serving as a DoubleEntendre.

This versatile bit of business turns up in both comedy and drama and, depending on context, can say any number of things about a character. It may be used to portray him as [[TheAlcoholic pathetically dependent]]; or, conversely, to establish him as a low-grade BadAss, ImmuneToDrugs; or, if it's not habitual, to emphasize that he's under [[INeedAFreakingDrink unusual stress]]. Or the focus may be on the other characters' lack of reaction: they know this guy so well, they're used to it.
