This trope is OlderThanTelevision, from the old days of French Farce. It arrived on television in 1930s. In live theater, certain kinds of screwball comedies are known as "door slammers" for a climactic scene or scenes where the whole cast is chasing one another, in one door and out another, everyone just missing everyone else by an instant; notable examples include ''Theatre/AFunnyThingHappenedOnTheWayToTheForum'' and ''Theatre/LendMeATenor''.

Also called a "Freleng Door Gag", after Warner Bros. director Creator/FrizFreleng, who may not have created it but took it to [[UpToEleven a whole other level]].

* As you might expect, more than one ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' game uses this, often as a puzzle.
**
The GameBoy SNES/Genesis game ''Scooby Doo: Mystery'' has one in its first mystery. On the upper floor of an old ski lodge is a hallway with seven doors (the one at the end of the hall is locked). Opening each of the other six doors in turn you'll be chased by the Phantom every time, and yes there's at least one point where two Scoobys cross paths literally breaks the trope, as the six doors suddenly open all at once and Shaggy and Scooby exit from the locked room, allowing you to reenter that room and progress the game.
