** In another episode, Barney sleepwalks to his fridge, and he drags Fred out of bed with him since [[ChainedHeat they're both glued to a bowling ball]]. Subverted; it turns out Barney was faking it because he was afraid to tell Fred he was hungry.

* One episode of the anthology series ''Murder in Mind'' featured Deborah, a student (Creator/KeeleyHawes), who suffered from episodes of sleepwalking. Then she woke up one morning to find herself clutching a bloodstained hammer, and her cheating boyfriend was nowhere to be found. [[spoiler:The boyfriend turned up at the end, alive and well. Not so Deborah's best friend, who she'd subconsciously realised was the woman her boyfriend was fooling around with.]]

* An episode of ''Series/TwoAndAHalfMen'' displays an unusually realistic example of sleepwalking. Alan wanders around at night doing things like vacuuming and baking, seeming for all the world like he's awake, apart from his speech consisting of absolute nonsense and the fact that he hasn't turned the vacuum on (he provides its sounds himself) and that he didn't bring a mixing bowl, resulting in his "baking" leaving a mess all over the dining table. Another episode reveals that Charlie routinely makes surprisingly good homemade chili while he's blacked-out drunk.

* {{Trope Maker|s}} for the "arms extended in front" pose is ''Film/TheCabinetOfDrCaligari''.
* FrankensteinsMonster and zombies are usually portrayed as walking like this, with hands outstretched. While they're not ''technically'' asleep, they are resurrected dead -- death often being compared metaphorically to a permanent sleep. In the original Universal film series Frankenstein's Monster only did this after an incompatible brain transplant, making him blind. And arguably, making him no longer the same character. It was then [[Creator/BelaLugosi Ygor]]'s brain in the monster's body. Most parodies of the Universal Frankenstein use this pose though, without bothering with the reason ''why''.
* In ''Film/{{Phenomena}}'', main character Jennifer is a sleepwalker, and the plot of the movie kicks off when she witnesses a murder while sleepwalking. Notably, during her second sleepwalking episode, she actually ''realises'' that she's sleepwalking and tries to snap herself out of it. She fails, but then [[spoiler:she hears a gunshot and wakes up.]]
* One of the side effects of an experimental antidepressant called Ablixa in ''Film/SideEffects'' is sleepwalking. Emily, who has tried many other antidepressants to no avail, is determined to keep taking it despite sleepwalking, during which she prepares food for three people... even though it's just her and her husband at the apartment. Then, one night, [[spoiler:she stabs her husband during one such episode]]. In the end, her psychiatrist finds out that [[spoiler:this was all a scheme by Emily and her former psychiatrist to cause the stocks of the manufacturer of the drug to plummet and cash in on the knowledge; killing her husband, whom she secretly hated, was a bonus; her new psychiatrist's ruined career was just collateral damage]]. Fortunately, the psychiatrist [[spoiler:ends up proving himself a MagnificentBastard, and the women end up paying for their crimes]].
* In ''Film/SecondhandLions'', Hub is a sleepwalker who does weapons drills by the lake at night.

* Wilhemina Packard from Disney's ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'' is said to sleepwalk, though we don't see her do it. The fact that she [[FanDisservice sleeps in the nude]] probably has something to do with it. The other characters wear sleep masks because of this.

* ''Series/ElChavoDelOcho'' has a two-parter episode in which Don Ram�n, mortified by the fact El Chavo is always hungry, starts sleepwalking at night, and leaving an empty plate inside his barrel. Do�a Clotilde also sleepwalks, apparently due to her "little yellow-chested sparrow" escaping from its cage (and [[HilarityEnsues mistaking Don Ram�n for it]] while she's asleep). For some reason, Quico and Do�a Florinda are also seen sleepwalking.
