** In a different scene where a pair of cops are searching Mask!Stanley's pockets, they pull out several gag items, including chattering teeth and a rubber chicken. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that his whole demeanor is based on cartoons.

* A variant of this happens in ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants''; in "The Smoking Peanut", when a Zoo Worker tries to pull an egg off of Mr. Krabs, he accidentally pulls off all of his clothes instead, much to the crowd's disgust. The Zoo Worker gets it right the second time.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' has huge lists of electronic and breaking-and-entering equipment which can lead to this situation as easily as D&D. Luckily, the Reactive Myomer Pack now exists - a backpack made of smart materials that can shift the desired item to the top quickly on receipt of a wireless command.

** This also happens to the [[MattSmith Eleventh Doctor]] in "The Lodger", when he's reaching for his Sonic Screwdriver to protect someone from a perceived threat, and instead manages to grab an electric toothbrush.

* The ending of the ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}} Mata Nui'' Online Game has the main character pulling the various items he has acquired out of his BagOfHolding and tossing them aside during the final level, including flutes, letters, and magical light-giving rocks. Granted, though, his [[HeroicMime attitude]] is less "Now where did I put that thing?" and more "[[OhCrap OH CRAP]] GIANT BUG THINGS COMING FOR ME PLEASE SPIRITS LET THERE BE SOMETHING USEFUL IN HERE."
