* Used in ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone'', where Rudy and Penny are trying to design a robot, but because they have different views on how it should work (Penny wants it to be helpful, Rudy wants it to be a superweapon), the design turns out a mess and after being erased, it goes on a helpful/destructive rampage in chalkzone. Even worse, Rudy's [[ArchEnemy archenemies]] Scrawl and Craniac discover it and decide to use it in a scheme they were concocting.

** In another episde, while making omelettes Edd uses a spoon to take a small amount of butter from a stick. Eddy thans him and takes the stick. Eddy has a habit of not measuring ingrediants in cooking and simply using as much of it as he can find.
* Shown in one of the "Aesop and Son" segments of ''WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle''. In the tale, a bunch of animals cook a stew but won't let a bear eat any of it because he didn't contribute any ingredients.

* In episode 13 of ''LightNovel/AmagiBrilliantPark'', Tricen is told by Seiya that his first promotional video for the park is too bland, and has him redo it with more input from the other characters. They give him varying suggestions based on what they think it should include, such as Moffle wanting more action-oriented stuff. When Seiya sees the second video, he wonders what the heck it's supposed to be about, and ends up running the first video instead. Tricen then reveals that he uploaded the second video online, and Seiya is shocked to find out that its garnered almost [[ViewersAreMorons a million and a half views]], along with over seventy thousand comments.
