Added DiffLines:

* An unusual variation occurs in the ''WesternAnimation/KatieAndOrbie'' episode "Sore Throat." Katie comes down with tonsillitis, but she doesn't have surgery; it's just treated as an ordinary {{Sick Episode}}. As outlined at the top of this page, this is more often {{Truth in Television}} than the surgery nowadays.

** The episode titled "Gerald's Tonsils". It was also created [[WrittenInInfirmity around the time his voice actor hit puberty]], and rather than replace him with another boy (or a [[CrossDressingVoices woman]]), they used tonsillitis to explain the deeper voice.

* First episode of ''WesternAnimation/GravedaleHigh'' (a show about an AllGhoulsSchool) has Sid the Invisible Kid going to the hospital as he has Tonsillitis. Smart idea from the writers considering that, as an invisible kid, his anatomy is the most human-like of the monster character other than been invisible. Also because a Hospital is perfect for making jokes about the different kids' monster nature (a vampire that go to the blood bank, a mummy with new bandages, a zombie girl mistaken as a very sick patient, etc).

* Referenced in ''ImAMarvelAndImADC'': [[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} Rorschach]] and {{Deadpool}} visit a guy in the hospital after Deadpool shot him. Deadpool talks like a soothing parent and utters the ice cream line.

* In the ''Series/{{AdventuresInWonderland}} episode "Take My Tonsils... Please!" the Mad Hatter has his tonsils removed. This is an odd episode, as much of it takes place in a realistic hospital without any of the usual Wonderland wackiness, though by the end it reverts to the standard hijinks as the still hoarse-voiced Hatter tries to replace himself with an identical robot to host a TV show.

SubTrope of SickEpisode. Something of a ForgottenTrope because since the late 1990s tonsillectomies are done much less frequently than they were in the past, and their effectiveness is debated. Nowadays wisdom teeth removal is often used in its place.
