* A ''Series/{{MASH}}'' episode has Frank Burns stealing a wounded colonel's antique pistol, to pass off as his own and impress Margaret. The gun's disappearance is discovered, and Radar (who was in charge of the gun bin) is held responsible, facing up to fifteen years in the stockade. After Col. Potter goes on the PA and prevails upon the thief to return the gun, no questions asked, Frank goes to replace it in the bin and accidentally shoots himself in the foot. After he confesses the deed to Margaret in her tent, there's this exchange:
-->'''Frank:''' Oh, I did a terrible thing, Margaret.
-->'''Margaret:''' Well, it's all right now.
-->'''Frank:''' I should've known better.
-->'''Margaret:''' Well, at least you regret it.
--->'''Frank:''' Oh, never again. ''[{{beat}}]'' When you steal something, don't ever try to return it.

*** 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.

* ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' has a number of these. An example is at the end of the Indian casino episode, where Captain Hero preaches the moral of the story; that it was wrong for him to let innocent people die so he could make some money. Instead he preaches that although white people slaughtered the Indians and took their land, they shouldn't be allowed to have casinos because casinos bring out the worst in weak minded white people. He concludes his speech by yelling, "U.S.A.!" repeatedly while the crowd cheers along in a spoof of the film ''Rocky IV''.
