* In the ''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan'' episode, "Jeffy Sneaks Out!", Mario [[YouAreGrounded grounds Jeffy from going to the movies with Bowser Junior]] for repeatedly saying the F word, so Jeffy creates a clone of him from his Play-Doh (ItMakesSenseInContext) to take his place while he sneaks out. Play-Doh Jeffy causes havoc at Mario's house, and towards the end of the episode, the real Jeffy gets into a fight with Play-Doh Jeffy, and Mario gets a hold of officer Brooklyn T. Guy's gun, with intent to shoot the Jeffy impostor. Despite the two Jeffys looking nothing alike, Mario and Rosalina are unable to tell them apart. At first, Mario sings "The Bunny Do", but both Jeffys dance along to it. He then grounds both Jeffys, and the real Jeffy goes into a swearing fit, prompting Mario to shoot Play-Doh Jeffy.



** In "Doppelganger", at the vet's office, stray dog Baxter switches places with Duke and even spray-paints himself to look like him. The animals take him home instead of Duke. When the real Duke returns, none of the animals are able to tell them apart (even though they look ''nothing'' like each other, not to mention [[AccidentalMisnaming Baxter always gets everyone's names wrong]]), except for Otis, who knows that Pig's pet skunk, Skunky, absolutely loathes the real Duke.
