* In an episode of ''MyWifeAndKids'', Michael tries to help Jay study for her psychology test using what he calls "[[IncrediblyLamePun Psy-Kyle-Ogy]]", using rebus images to teach key terms (example: Lion + Shaquille O'Neill = Rorschach). This causes Jay to fail the test, so she gives him a "Psycolo-Jay" image reading "[[LysistrataGambit Booty on Lockdown]]". After Michael successfully convinces her professor to give her a retest, Jay hands him another image and walks off:

* Randal Graves has one in ''WesternAnimation/ClerksTheAnimatedSeries'': '''Monkey + Burrito + Dying Leonardo - Burrito + (Due to the recent lawsuit by Dustin Hoffman over the alleged unauthorized use of his likeness, the face of Dustin Hoffman in Randal's cartoon brain calculation will be played by Al Pacino!) = Film/{{OUTBREAK}}!!'''

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': Cartmans take on Osama bin Laden (e.g. holds up pic of rooster and lollipop) shows that the rebus can also come without solution (which the viewer adds on the fly). Of course, the gag is a nod to analogous ones on Looney Tunes.

It should be noted that this doesn't actually have very much to do with an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rebus actual rebus]], which is where a word or phrase is represented by images of objects, whose names are homophones... Which, in turn, should not be confused with [[Comicbook/DoomPatrol Rebis]]. It should also not be confused with SpeakingInPanels, which shows a story in a bubble. And certainly not with [[Literature/{{Rebus}} a hard-bitten Scottish policeman]].

* Occasionally done in {{Archie}}. If one character thinks another is a nut, a thought bubble with a nut (of the construction-related variety) will be their only reaction. Once, Archie's and Reggie's antics were observed by a background character for a while, until she finally turned away, with a thought bubble with a screw and a baseball.
