* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' frequently makes use of spoof Aesops. One memorable instance occurs at the conclusion of an episode where Lisa has persuaded UsefulNotes/BillClinton to issue an executive order overturning the results of an elementary school band competition;
-->'''Clinton''': If something doesn't go right, just complain until you get what you want.\\
'''Marge''': That's a pretty lousy lesson.\\
'''Clinton''': Well, [[TakeThat I'm a pretty lousy president]].

** In "Monty Can't Buy Me Love", Homer offers an unusual version of the BeYourself Aesop to Mr. Burns:
-->'''Homer:''' To be loved, you have to be nice to people. Every day. But to be hated, you don't have to do squat!

** From "Web Weirdos":
-->'''Jake''': Love like theirs will always find a way. [[ItMakesSenseInContext It'll crawl all over you and drain your body fluids, poisoning you slowly until you pass out.]]

* ''ComicStrip/PhoebeAndHerUnicorn'':
-->'''Phoebe:''' I now understand that hair is ''far'' more important than pencil toppers. \\
'''Dakota:''' That's a stupid moral. \\
'''Phoebe:''' At least it's not a cliche.

** At the end of ''The Beast with a Billion Backs'', after Bender "rescues" all the citizens of Earth from FluffyCloudHeaven and they all start bickering about various things (like Kif breaking up with Amy because she gave in to Zap Brannigan's sleazy charms while Kif was [[spoiler: temporarily dead]]), Bender announces that the moral of the story is that true love is all about having to wrangle with jealousy and other negative emotions.

* In the noveltytune "No Anchovies, Please" by the J. Geils Band, a curious young housewife calls a phone number she finds at the bottom of a can of anchovies. She's subsequently kidnapped by a shadowy organization and transformed into a bowling ball. Her poor husband sees and recognizes her later while he's watching ''Bowling for Dollars''. The lesson? "Next time you place your order, don't forget to say....'no anchovies, please.'"

*** Interestingly, the Healthy Eating Aesop was played completely straight in the first half of the episode, with Ron becoming more and more obese in his desire to prove Healthy Eating to be a lie, and it was starting to not just to impact his health negatively, but to put a strain in his relationship with Kim. So, the episode had something akin to FOUR aesops for the price of one, two enforced Spoof Aesops to go with the RuleofFunny that the series partly runs on, one Aesop about healthy living played straight before being solved humorously, and a maybe accidental, maybe on purpose Aesop about relationships being affected due to selfish pride and contrariness.
