* ''TheElectricCompany'' had a cool collection of these to conclude skits. A few were specific to certain themes, such as for {{Western}} (trumpet sounding like a horse whinny) or medieval parodies ({{Parody}} of BaroqueMusic, with concluding {{Rimshot}}-like bell). Even Fargo North Decoder had one that parodied the opening theme for the sketch.

* Similar to the ''Series/DoctorWho'' example above, both ''EastEnders'' and ''Series/TheBill'' have had very distinctive "drumbeat" stings, which would punctuate the final scene of an episode at the point of a cliffhanger, and lead into the credits.
* ''The Saturday Night Armistice'': The ''EastEnders'' sting was parodied in a segment suggesting that there was a drummer constantly following the characters around waiting for an appropriately dramatic moment.
