* A fantasy episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' reimagines Chief Wiggum and Principal Skinner as hard-living New Orleans police detectives. Wiggum is still from Springfield in this continuity (having fled town because of "massive corruption" on his part), but Skinner claims to have actually been born and raised in N'awlins. Their nemesis is the [[LargeAndInCharge corpulent crime boss]] Big Daddy, who is voiced by Gailard Sartain - who with his French last name could possibly be a real-life Cajun, despite hailing from Oklahoma.

Of course, characters don't have to be Cajun - or even French - to qualify. All they have to do is be from Louisiana - or somewhere near Louisiana - and fit the stereotype. And they can be from any part of the Gulf Coast, which stretches from southeastern Texas to Florida. Many people don't realize this, but the UsefulNotes/{{Houston}} area has the largest number of Cajuns outside Louisiana, especially after Hurricane Katrina (leading to some bitter irony when Harvey hit Houston), and there are significant Cajun communities across much of Texas.

* For some, ComicBook/{{Gambit}} of the Comicbook/{{X-Men}} is nothing more than a collection of various stereotypes about thieves and Cajuns all rolled into one that has only recently been given any major CharacterDevelopment. He was raised by your run-of-the-mill Cajun thieves' guild after being kidnapped at birth, and their leader was advised by a black Catholic [[HollywoodVoodoo voodoo priestess]] type! He has a Cajun accent so hardcore that even the writers of the ''X-Men'' books can't help parodying it now and then! Every time Gambit has a few issues in New Orleans, he ''will'' have scenes in the swamps, the French Quarter or both, and some mention of gumbo or jambalaya ''will'' be made, I gerr-on-tee it. One of his taunts in the game ''Videogame/XMenLegends'' even is "Watch out for ragin' Cajun!"

Note that Cajun does not mean from UsefulNotes/NewOrleans. In fact, New Orleans is specifically ''not'' Cajun, as the culture exists in the Acadiana region, whose urban center is [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lafayette,_Louisiana Lafayette]]. {{The Big Easy}}'s specific ethnic group is known as Creole. The word itself is a corruption of "Acadian", the term for the French-speakers of [[UsefulNotes/{{Canada}} eastern Quebec and the Maritime Provinces, particularly New Brunswick]]. That's right--the Cajuns are originally from Canada. They trekked down to Louisiana by several routes after the UsefulNotes/FrenchAndIndianWar resulted in the transfer of Canada to British rule. As a result, the Cajuns have a Southern U.S. culture with French-Canadian roots, and are an ethnic group mainly living in southwestern Louisiana, but many creators can't tell the difference. See TheOtherWiki [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cajun for further details]]. Hint: New Orleans is more metropolitan/city, and Cajun is more pastoral/country (except the aforementioned Lafayette).
