* The eleventh "WesternAnimation/TreehouseOfHorror" episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' combines this with a parody of ''Series/TheBradyBunch''. Lisa and Bart, playing Hansel and Gretel, are captured by a witch, who claims she needs to get ready before her boyfriend comes over. She says that his name is "George Cauldron," a deliberate reference to Jan Brady saying she had a boyfriend named "George Glass" after [[LineOfSightName seeing a drinking glass on her nightstand]]. After Homer saves the children from the witch by pushing her into the oven, a man arrives--his name is George Cauldron, and he's looking for the witch so they can go to a concert.
** In "Stark Raving Mad", Homer is sent to a psychiatric hospital, and Marge tells the hospital director that, if he speaks with him without mentioning their son Bart, he'll see that Homer is sane. The director is surprised that Bart is actually real and immediately has Homer released.

** In "Don't Fear the Roofer", Homer makes friends with a roofer called Ray Magini, but when asked to prove the man's existence, he can't - because he fails to appear whenever Homer is sure he will. Homer is sent for psychological treatment (electroshock)... and right after the treatment is done, Ray appears in front of everyone, proving Homer was right.

*''Series/{{Castle}}'' has quite a number episodes that pit Castle's child-like belief in the supernatural against Beckett's rational skepticism but most of them usually go for the MaybeMagicMaybeMundane ending. However, there are two notable exceptions:
**In the 6th season episode "Time Will Tell," an episode about (gasp) time travel, Beckett [[spoiler: spills her coffee on a letter that had been a key piece of evidence in the case after the case is over. The murderer had been using a stained copy of that letter to try to track down an intended victim but the cops had used the pristine original to find him first. The stain Beckett made that afternoon matched the one on the murderer's copy even though his copy predated the spill of the coffee.]] The incident is not really "in your face" proof, but it is chilling because the only possible explanations are "time travel" or "1 in a million coincidence."
**But the 7th season episode "Clear and Present Danger" takes the cake for playing this trope straight as an arrow when it turns out that the victim really was killed by [[spoiler: "the invisible man." (Well, an invisible ''wo''man). A scientist working for a shadowy government agency made a breakthrough and had created a functional invisibility suit which was then, in an ironic twist, used to murder him. Beckett adjusted reasonably quickly to the reality of invisible people walking about and Castle's paranoia and creation of an "invisible man trap" suddenly seemed unusually reasonable.]]

** The Garfield segments got in on this at least once. In "Heatwave Holiday," Garfield, Jon, and Odie deal with the titular heatwave by setting up a Christmas display in the middle of July. Soon, everyone in town follows suit, and the group even exchanges presents--right before a news announcement reminds everyone that it's still, you know, ''July.'' That night, as Garfield sleeps, we hear sleigh bells; the fat cat wakes up and goes into the next room, where he speaks to someone just offscreen: "Oh, it's you...no, it's not Christmas. Sorry." Garfield goes back to bed and comments that of all people, "''he'' should know better"--and a loud "HO HO HO!" is heard.
