* On one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'', Tigger breaks a mirror in Rabbit's home, and Rabbit tells him that means seven years bad luck. Tigger dismisses it, as it wasn't ''his'' mirror that broke, and he tries to help Rabbit avoid bad luck, which just results in Rabbit getting one misfortune after another. Eventually, it's revealed that the mirror belonged to Pooh, so Tigger tries to help him avoid bad luck, with the same results. Eventually, after everyone but Tigger suffers from bad luck, it become apparent that Tigger is the one who is unlucky, so he's cast out. The others feel sorry for him and reverse the bad luck by "fixing" the mirror (taping a picture of Tigger onto the mirror so that he thinks it's his reflection).

Christopher Robin later reassures Pooh that the whole "broken mirror equals seven years bad luck" thing was just a mere superstition.

s/grow/ground/ it's clear from the context what was meant.
* ''ComicBook/LuckyLuke'': Lucky Luke discovers his opponent Phil Enfer is superstitious and uses this to his advantage by luring him into a saloon which has a black cat crossing by, a mirror lying on the grow which Phil steps on and breaks and a calender falling down notifying it's Friday the 13th. When Luke stands in front of the saloon mirror he knows Phil won't dare to shoot at him, because it might break, thus making him able to fire at him and defeat him.

* In an episode of ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'', Rose gets a call from her sister in St. Olaf, telling her that there's a drought problem, and town natives are being asked to remain celibate for the duration. (An old local superstition says that refraining from sex will cause rain to return; more acceptable than[[VirginSacrifice the usual ideas about that, probably.]] While Rose is one to adhere to tradition, she makes the mistake of taking Blanche's advice and not telling Miles about it, and their relationship starts to suffer as a result. (Fortunately, at the end, Rose gets a call from her sister again who tells her - clearly in the middle of sex - that it's raining, and Rose learns not to listen to Blanche.)

[[spoiler:This takes place after he breaks the MagicMirror they'd been chasing for the whole series, too.]] An interesting aspect to this is that when the seven years' bad luck is first brought up, it's in the context of having broken a ''magic'' mirror, rather than an ordinary one--suggesting that this rather than superstition is the reason the bad luck is magically enforced.

* ''{{Series/Mash}}'': Col. Potter makes Radar remove a Korean good-luck totem from the middle of the camp because it's blocking traffic, after which a bunch of bad things happen -- from a lighter not working to a bus crash (literally). Radar puts a horseshoe up in Potter's office to ward off the bad luck.

* A sort of version occurs in ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar''. Rico gets a fortune saying he will meet a foul end. Skipper assures him that it's just a superstition. Julien, wanting Rico to believe the fortune, sets up a bunch of incidents to make Rico believe he's having bad luck.
