* 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.

* One of the passengers -a cook- in ''{{Titanic}}'' as it goes down does this as he and the protagonists hang on for dear life on the upturned bow of the ship. Considering his position, it'd probably be his last chance to do so. As it happens, this cook was a real man, Charles Joughin, who did survive the sinking, despite being in the freezing water for two hours or so. Some have suggested that the alcohol he drank kept him alive, but this claim is in doubt (given that one effect of alcohol consumption is an ''increased'' risk of hypothermia).
