* ''WesternAnimation/SylvesterAndTweetyMysteries'' has one episode where Granny and her pets go to Pamplona and Sylvester has to constantly run away from bulls. Bonus points for getting the festival's name right.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': In "Peter's Got Woods", Peter sends Brian to a PTA meeting in his place and he is surprised to find Quagmire there because he is single. Quagmire says that he has slept with so many women over the years that he wouldn't be surprised if he had a 20-year old son somewhere. Soon enough, the show cuts to "Madrid, Spain", represented by a Spanish colonial villa in what appears to be a desert, where a woman (speaking in an [[ShownTheirWork unexpectedly good Spaniard accent]]) berates an adult son that looks [[UncannyFamilyResemblance just like Quagmire]] with a ponytail and a {{Film/Cantinflas}} [[{{Spexico}} 'stache]] for coming in late. Before leaving again, the son goes on a much-less-well accented rant ending with "I'm going to see a bullfight!".

* The episode "El Toro Bravo" of ''Series/CriminalMindsBeyondBorders'', starting with [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the title itself]]. Two killers involved in the bullfighting business see themselves as a master and apprentice matador when they "bullfight" foreign tourists who disrespect the bulls or the festival itself during [[ItsAlwaysMardiGrasInNewOrleans the Running of the Bulls of Pamplona]]. And the police can't catch the killers sooner because everyone in Spain is a sucker to the Catholic Church and [[AristocratsAreEvil old names]], even after they have [[ImpoverishedPatrician fallen in disgrace]] [[IdiotPlot in the most nonsensical way possible]]. Throw in some [[SymbologyResearchFailure bizarre references]] to ''Literature/DonQuixote'' and Basque nationalism, techno-Flamenco in the beginning and bullfighting-inspired music at the end, and more Spanish flags and 1950s Bull Run posters than you can hang on ''Series/Westworld'''s [[{{Spexico}} Mexican village set]], and you have your Spanish episode.

* ''Series/EmptyNest'': In "Harry's Excellent Adventure", Harry travels with his brother to Pamplona for the Running of the Bulls. They hang in a very narrow and typically Mediterranean whitewashed alley, [[{{Spexico}} drinking tequila]], until the bull herd suddenly runs on them unnanounced and they have to flee. On the wall behind there is a poster announcing a corrida with Gitanillo de Triana and Manolete, two bullfighters that died on the arena in 1931 and 1947, respectively.

* The level "Black Velvetopia" in ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' which, in typical TimSchafer absurdist style, combines Toros Y Flamenco with tacky black velvet paintings, neon &... ''high school gym class.'' Capped off with a BullfightBoss battle, of course. Somewhat justified in that the level is not an actual place, but rather a representation of the mind of a Latin-American former wrestler with a combination of OCD, chronic depression and deep-seated insecurity issues relating to an incident in high school.

** Daredevil also fought a villain called the Matador very early in his career. This culminated in a battle DD won by butting the Matador with his horns.
*** Matador's StartOfDarkness is as priceless. He was once a corrupt matador that drugged bulls with sedatives hidden in ''banderillas'' because he was afraid of them. This ended when Bruce Banner witnessed it and turned into TheHulk (''"The bull has no chance. This is not sport!"''). After being exposed as a coward, Matador decided to exact revenge ''[[DisproportionateRetribution on mankind]]''... [[WeAllLiveInAmerica by becoming a criminal in]] [[BigApplesauce New York City]]. Uh?

* An episode of the classic ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'' cartoon featured the Running of the Bulls... ''in Lisbon.''
** Which of course, looked like your stereotypical Spanish town, apart from the mentions of them being in Portugal.
* One episode of ''TotallySpies'' had the spies going to Spain. Not only was Madrid placed MUCH higher on the map, the city seemed to have come out of the 19th century... oh yeah, and there were bulls, of course.
* ''SylvesterAndTweetyMysteries'' had one episode where Granny and her pets go to Pamplona and Sylvester had to constantly run away from bulls. Bonus points for getting the festival's name right.
* ''FamilyGuy'': In "Peter's Got Woods", Peter sends Brian to a PTA meeting in his place and he is surprised to find Quagmire there because he is single. Quagmire says that he has slept with so many women over the years that he wouldn't be surprised if he had a 20-year old son somewhere. Soon enough, the show cuts to "Madrid, Spain", represented by a Spanish colonial villa in what appears to be a desert, where a woman (speaking in an [[ShownTheirWork unexpectedly good Spaniard accent]]) berates an adult son that looks [[UncannyFamilyResemblance just like Quagmire]] with a ponytail and a {{Film/Cantinflas}} [[{{Spexico}} 'stache]] for coming in late. Before leaving again, the son goes on a much-less-well accented rant ending with "I'm going to see a bullfight!".
* Largely averted in ''TheSimpsons''. The one episode where bullfighting is a plot point ("Million Dollar Abie"), is because the Old Hispanic Guy convinces Springfield to transform the local football stadium into a bullring, and Spain is not even mentioned (though the last scene is a clear ShoutOut to the Running of the Bulls).

** In "YOLO", Homer gets again in touch with his childhood penpal - Eduardo from Barcelona. He read Homer's letters while sitting in one of the very bell towers of the Sagrada Familia and sent Homer a photo of himself dressed as a bullfighter. He speaks in a Castilian accent (a Catalan one was probably asking too much) and is religious but also a womanizer ("[[UpToEleven Eight wives, two hundred children!]]"). He also takes Homer to Springfield Tapas ("Formerly Chintzy's Small Portions", perhaps the reason there is a [[{{Spexico}} picture of two tacos]] on the wall) and his scenes are accompanied by guitar and castanet music.
* The Spanish player in ''{{WesternAnimation/Hurricanes}}'' is named Toro [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign Contrais]]. Though human, he has stereotypical bull-like attributes, being large, bulky, broad-chested, raven-haired and overconfident in the field, and he hails from [[ItsAlwaysMardiGrasInNewOrleans Pamplona]]. In one episode he was expelled from the team and he made career as a [[{{Spexico}} luchador]] named "The Masked Matador".

** Despite the episode actually being shot in location around Seville, the scenes of Sydney and Nigel travelling to Seville were shot in a 19th century steam train catered to tourists. In real life they would have flown directly to Seville or to Madrid and then taken the train to Seville, which is a high-speed line, but God forbid anyone showing 21st century Spain as being in the 21st century.
