** 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.

If an episode revolves around a haunting (or alien visitation) (or lake monster sighting) (or whatever) that turns out to be a hoax, the episode will end with a shot of a ''real'' ghost/alien visitor/lake monster/whatever.

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' episode "That's the Spirit" [[LampshadeHanging Lampshades]] and then [[SubvertedTrope subverts it]]. After discovering the haunted house was just a Halloween hoax, Phineas says "Isn't this the moment in one of these things when someone really turns into a ghost?". Spooky music plays, the camera focuses on the family behind the hoax for a moment before Russell just says "Dude that's it", and they wander off.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheWildThornberrys'' that took place in the Himalayas had Eliza searching for the Yeti who supposedly lived there. She eventually discovers that the "Yeti" is actually a doctor who [[ScoobyDooHoax dresses up like a monster]] to protect the local wildlife. At the end of the episode, a Yeti approaches and helps Eliza fight off some villains; later, Eliza thanks the doctor, but he explains that he wasn't wearing his suit at the time. Eliza ponders what this means, and a loud roar sounds from the mountains...

** In the original airing, this episode was followed by The Curse of Candace, where Candace spends most of the episode thinking she's a vampire due to some of Phineas's and Ferb's preset experiments. At the very end, they clear up the misunderstanding, she takes off her cloak... and then she crumples into ashen dust. So in a way, this is a [[DoubleSubversion double subverted]] BrickJoke.

A variant of SkepticismFailure. Compare OrWasItADream. Sometimes a case of AndYouThoughtItWasAGame. Occasionally, the characters ''do'' see the creature, but it's MistakenForAnImposter. Often occurs at the end of a CryptidEpisode. When a creature thought to be fictional is discovered in ReaLife, that's AccidentallyCorrectZoology.

* There are likely enough ghostly encounters in various Country songs to make a TV series out of.
** These range from the somewhat malevolent ''Ghost Riders In The Sky'' (the Johnny Cash version), to the friendly ghost of Country Music legend Hank Williams.
** There are two versions of the song ''The Ride''. The old version has the ghost of Hank Williams as the driver. The newer version has the ghost of Dale Earnhardt as the driver.
** Another popular song is ''Phantom 309'', by Red Sovine, which features the ghost of "Big Joe" (as well as that of the truck, itself), who gives the passenger a dime (the cost of a cup of coffee when the song was made). The story goes that Big Joe crashed his rig (said to be the fastest on the road) in order to avoid hitting a school bus full of children. His ghost sometimes returns to that stretch of road to give hitchhikers a ride to the truck stop.
*** "Big Joe" makes an appearance in a more recent song ''Big Joe, Red Sovine, and Phantom 309'', in which the ghost of Big Joe can't figure out how to operate a modern payphone that lack a coin slot (instead requiring a credit or calling card) and is met by the singer. The singer then invites Joe to join him for lunch and pays for the both of them. Joe's ghost thanks the singer and leaves, saying that his "friend, Red" is waiting for him out in the truck. It doesn't dawn on the singer until later that he has had an encounter with Big Joe and that the "friend" is likely Red Sovine, the singer of the original song.
