* A non-humorous, punny example was used on an episode of ''TalesFromTheCrypt'': after the Cryptkeeper, dressed as a barber, snips someone's ear off, we hear the victim scream. The Cryptkeeper then holds up the severed ear, sings this and laughs.

* An old FunkyWinkerbean comic featured band director Harry Dinkle recounting his very first piano recital. He couldn't remember how Moonlight Sonata ended, so he ended with "Shave and a Haircut"

* In ''Film/TheBreakfastClub'', Vernon goes into the library to investigate the commotion caused by Bender falling through the ceiling of the bathroom; unknown to him, Bender is hiding under a table at the moment. Bender starts to sit up but bonks his head on the table, and Andrew nearby quickly raps the "and a haircut" part of the beat; Bender fist-beats "two bits" back.

* ''[[VideoGame/ParappaTheRapper UmJammer Lammy]]'': "I Am a Master, and You", Lammy's version of the Chop Chop Master Onion stage, eventually evolves into this quite subtly, eventually--unsurprisingly--finishing off with it.

Probably the most infamous seven beats of music in the modern world, or at least high on the list, this five-and-two lick appears everywhere. In music, it's a sting to end a piece; in other media, it appears in a joke and/or as a recognition signature, usually a knock--the first person taps out "shave-and-a-hair-cut," and waits for the "two bits" response[[note]]"Two bits" is old American slang for 25 cents, dating from the time of the Spanish Milled Dollar, which was worth 8 Spanish Reals -- one Real, or "bit", was an eighth of a dollar. This was why pirates called them Pieces of Eight. Incidentally, [[SarcasmMode good luck]] finding a barber that gives a shave and a haircut for 25 cents these days, and good luck, too, trying to incorporate inflation into a two-knock beat (ten bucks, maybe?)[[/note]].

** The ''MuppetsTonight'' version of the "Mana-mana" sketch (where the pink... ''things'' have been appearing whenever Kermit says "phenomena") ends with Sandra Bullock's psychiatrist character saying "you should see what happens whenever I say "Shave and a haircut"... Cue a giant furry monster appearing out of nowhere, lounged across her desk: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5Mc55P1i9g "Two bits!"]]
