* There's a subversion in ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' as well: during a vehicle chase there is constant cuts between Rigby looking forward and screaming and two men carrying a glass sheet... then the vehicles pass by the street next to the guys carrying the glass... who promptly drop the glass and take out their phones to take pictures of the chase happening next to them. Rigby was screaming at a picture of a dog with a hat that Aylene sent to him.

* Similarly to the above: the Belgian travel company Eurostar ran an ad campaign to promote new rail service from Belgium to London in 2007, which featured two workmen carrying a sheet of glass about to collide with a John Cleese lookalike doing the famous Silly Walk from [[MontyPythonsFlyingCircus Monty Python's]] "Ministry of Silly Walks" sketch. The tagline: "Watch out! London is just around the corner!"

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Storks}}'', Junior has to go through a maze of glass panes inside a warehouse.while being chased by wolves. Since birds can't see glass, he ends up hitting each and every one until he finally makes it out, only to then run into the classic sheet being carried by two men.

* Possibly the UrExample: a 1910 children's book called ''The Slant Book'' (it really is slanted in shape) is about a baby carriage gone runaway down a steep hill and the mayhem it causes to the delight of the child inside. At one point the cart goes through a sheet of glass, but as everything is PlayedForLaughs no one gets hurt. You can read the book [[http://www.gutenberg.org/files/17254/17254-h/17254-h.htm here]]-- oh, and we get a [[FruitCart spilled cart]] and a HydrantGeyser too!

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': Since windows in ''Star Trek'' tend to be made of transparent aluminum (and lead into space), characters generally have to make do with being thrown through various pieces of glass furniture. A good example is "Conspiracy," where Riker takes a surprisingly long time to get thrown through a glass coffee table. (However, glass furniture seems a bit more prone to being intentionally smashed in fits of rage. As Deanna once enquired of Worf, "Did the table do something wrong?")
* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine''. Likewise, in "Tacking Into the Wind," in the absence of suitable windows, Worf simply has to be thrown through an objet d'art made out of a vertically positioned sheet of glass. Never mind what a large fragile sculpture is doing in a military installation during a war (or how it's even survived repeated attacks on the station unshattered until that moment).

* Played with in ''Series/MakoMermaidsAnH2OAdventure''. As Zac and Evie attempt to move Rita (stuck in her mermaid form, and using her magic to turn herself invisible) somewhere out-of-the-way, a random student walks toward the "empty" space between them, sees them, stops for a moment, and completely nonchalantly walks around them, as though expecting the sheet of glass.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' ''Bubble Boy'', this trope had been taken [[UpToEleven Up To Eleven]]. The Rowdyruff Boys (plus Bubbles, minus Boomer) had played a game where they would spit at a plane and see who hits. Of course, they all missed. But when the first two boys did it, it was sent into space just as two astronauts were replacing the lens for their satellite. You know what happened next.
