* This occurs on an episode of ''Series/HoneyIShrunkTheKids''. On episode "Honey, I'm Wrestling with a Problem and the Chief", that parodies a famous ''Film/TheThreeStooges'' short, Nick and his friend, Joel, do this wearing a long trench coat, a hat and a fake beard, and they do this to sneak into a wrestling arena to try to help Wayne and police chief Jake. Joel brings along his accordion and tries to play "Pop! Goes the Weasel" to see if Jake could hear it and fight better so he could win.

* A more obscure version of this trope was performed on an episode of ''WesternAnimation/Jabberjaw'' where Clamhead and Shelly got turned into sharks. The two of them and Jabber are forced to run an obstacle course for sharks, but they wind up making an escape when they get inside the pipe tunnel and run off with it. Much to her dismay, Shelly was in the middle, despite the fact that it was her idea, and she wasn't too thrilled about Jabber standing on top of her.

** Later, in "Onion Gang", Onion and his pals pull this off for real. They're so small that, including Steven, there's ''five'' of them (plus a baby) in the trenchcoat. The episode's wiki page even links to this page!

The episode's wiki page even links to this page!page! Somewhat subverted in that they weren't trying to accomplish any kind of grownup purpose, but just did it to freak people out and take funny pictures of them, something Steven was somewhat alarmed to discover.
