To present an idea about how the city is usually portrayed, '''NFL Films''' on the Saints' 2009 Super Bowl Run is the most accurate depiction of the city. In other portrayals, the town is always surrounded by swamps and alligators. The swamps, of course, are always a mere two minute jog from the French Quarter (which tends to comprise the entire city): a convenient change of scenery for the protagonist chasing a bad guy. Said chase scene will inevitably run into a Mardi Gras parade, because ItsAlwaysMardiGrasInNewOrleans, usually accompanied by the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w58XVr5YE8w Second Line march]] (a.k.a. That Mardi Gras song that everybody knows but hardly anybody can name). Somehow, the city's entire black population--which is always [[MonochromeCasting significantly smaller]] than in real life--is either a [[HollywoodVoodoo voodoo priest]] or related to one, and you can always expect a reference to the city's famous cooking, and I gerr-on-tee at least one local will have a Creole accent thicker than gumbo.

AnneRice of ''TheVampireChronicles'' fame later introduced (or at least popularized) the SouthernGothic version of New Orleans, in which the town is full of zombies, voodoo priestesses, ghosts, vampires, mausoleums, and creepy but elegantly gothic antebellum architecture. It has quickly become a standard trope about New Orleans by itself. Most depictions of New Orleans depict the "Big Easy" as it existed before Hurricane Katrina nearly destroyed it in 2005. For a few years afterwards, Katrina became a specter in any works based in the city, bringing its volatile weather and high crime rates to the forefront. Disney sought to bring the original Big Easy image back to popularity with ''ThePrincessAndTheFrog'', which incorporates ''all'' of the elements mentioned in the previous paragraph.
