Inspiration for ''Series/TheLWord'' ([[HideYourLesbians in spirit, anyway]]). Also see NotUsingTheZWord and NWordPrivileges, as well as the frequently related CountryMatters.

* In "Franklin and the Grump" on ''Literature/{{Franklin}}'', Mr. Groundhog invites Franklin into his home for cocoa after Franklin returns his container of cocoa mix that he had left behind while fleeing from folks that wanted him to either tell him that there's either going to be an early spring or more winter. Franklin promises not to TalkAboutTheWeather, but then notices Mr. Beaver's various meteorological instruments and comments that he "must know a lot about the weather," then covers his mouth and says that he forgot he wasn't supposed to talk about "the W-word." Mr. Beaver, however, says that he loves talking about the weather, it's just that he doesn't like everyone pestering him about Groundhog Day because there are always going to be those who don't like the answer they hear.
