* In one BarneyBear cartoon, "Barney's Hungry Cousin", Barney tries to hide from another bear, out to steal his picnic food, inside a phone booth. As he is about to take a bite of a sandwich he has, the phone in the booth rings and he answers it. The other bear pops his head out through the mouthpiece of the phone and eats the sandwich, while the rest of his body is standing in another phone booth next door to this one with nothing between the two booths!

* In Franchise/TheDCU, this is a famous way of traveling for TheAtom. He would call someone, and when the receiver is picked up, the superhero would shrink sufficient to enter the phone lines and emerge at the other end. However, one modern story had him forgetting that the call would involve satellite relay and he had a really rough trip.

* ''Series/{{Danger 5}}''. Our heroes take control of a Nazi airplane, but the pilot has locked herself in the cabin. Ilsa picks up the intercom phone, presses her gun against it and pulls the trigger, blowing the pilot's brains out. The same gag (of sorts) is reused again in the early episodes of Season 2 where Khruschev sends items to Ilsa over the phone system. (Namely a babushka bomb, a "drug orange" and a "well done" sticker.)

** One example would be Tex Avery's ''Doggone Tired'', a short about a dog trying to sleep while a rabbit places the phone on his pillow, with the operator jabbering away. The dog strangles the handset, thus somehow strangling the operator (complete with tongue lolling out the receiver).
** On the ''MerrieMelodies'' short ''A Pest in the House'', a hotel guest keeps going down to manager Elmer Fudd every time he's disturbed to punch him in the face. At one time he simply calls the front desk and punches Elmer through the phone.
** BugsBunny once answered a quiz show in a phone booth and the prize money comes through the change slot.
