* Some radio cuts of Nelly's "Ride With Me" censor the line "If you wanna got and get high with me/Smoking M in the back..." by replacing the word "high" with the sound of someone taking a drag (presumably on a blunt) and "M" with the sound of said toker exhaling.

* Used through an entire episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'', "Word of the Day", where Angelica overhears and starts using a (bad) word used backstage by [[DepravedKidsShowHost a disgruntled kids' show host]]. The sound effects became increasingly inventive/desperate. It started with the whirr of a floor polisher, and ended with a testcard tone. She still managed to get it onto national TV and cause the mental breakdown of [[StepfordSmiler the disgruntled TV host]], so it's all good.

* Used to the point of exhaustion in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. The very first episode has a perfect example when Kyle is cursing out the aliens who are taking his brother, Ike, after they ignore his heartfelt plea. The later seasons have less swearing and bleeping.

** SethMacFarlane once said in an interview that back in ''Family Guy'''s first two seasons, it was a big deal to even have a swear word bleeped, so they had to use sound effects. However, in the Season 3 premiere, they finally got a standard bleep.

It's gotten to the point where nearly every episode in recent seasons [[OnceAnEpisode has at least one bleeped-out swear word in it]].



* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'': When Heffer reads a chapter in a home improvement book about things you can say when the hammer slips, random sound effects come out of his mouth. Rocko asks to read the book himself, and finds the exact sounds written down.

* The PlayStation version of ''VideoGame/YouDontKnowJack'' has backstage chatter among the employees as it opens. One version has one of the staff complaining about something which is responded in kind with "KISS MY- (AIRHORN)" though the offender quickly apologizes.

Added DiffLines:

* Used in Creator/LRonHubbard's ''Literature/MissionEarth'' "dekalogy" to (bleep) out any word more objectionable than "damn" or "hell," which includes (bleep)tch and (bleep)ard. This is to avoid upsetting the delicate sensibilities of the robots supposedly translating this story so it can be published on Earth, who oddly enough don't censor all the murder, rape, murder-then-rape, torture, underage sex, etc. that happens in the story. Also, several racial slurs make it through without incident.

* The clean version of Music/QueensOfTheStoneAge's third album Songs for the Deaf put loud censor-beeps (akin to those commonly heard on TV)over all instances of "fuck" and one instance of "kill". [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0sRz2-WKfI Here's an example]]
