** ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructs]] this in their [[XMeetsY Scoody Doo meets Jason]] sketch, where Scooby is found by the killer and does this (the killer catches him and slaughters him).

In many cartoons, especially ones by {{Hanna-Barbera}}, whenever a character starts running, they usually run on the spot for a few seconds before running away. It doesn't matter what they're running from, or why, but they always do this. A WheelOFeet is usually applied to this. It's common for this animation to be accompanied by about four seconds of "wacky" percussive sound effects followed quickly by a "slingshot" zip (perhaps best onomatopoeized as [[SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud "Whamma-lamma-bamma-ramma-zamma-whamma-lamma-bamma-ramma-zamma-zamma - ZING!")]].

* In the ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' episode where the Eds "break" physics, Eddy uses this to get rid of Sarah by running in place, hopping out of the "foot wheel" and sticking her into it, which forces her to run away at high speeds.

* Also happens whenever there's a dash button in a 3D Mario game. If you try to dash while standing still, Mario/Luigi/whoever will run in place, and then shoot off, identical to Sonic's Super Peel-Out mentioned above.

* The "Super Peel-Out" move of SonicTheHedgehog in ''SonicCD'' is this, in video game form.
* Appears in a few cutscenes of ''SuperMarioRPG'', such as Mario's first venture into Bowser's Keep.
** Also the standard action when running from battle against minor {{Mook}}s in the later ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' and ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi'' games.

* This trope is also [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]] in the animated ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld'' series. King Koopa, Hip and Hop do this when they are found by a giant Piranha Plant only for said plant to [[SwallowedWhole swallow them whole]].

--> If, when it starts to run, its legs pinwheel in the air for a humorous few seconds making binka-binka-binka noises, it is a Cartoon cat.
