* Spoofed in an episode of ''EdEddNEddy'' where the discovery of a crate of "squirt guns" (turkey basters) inspires the cul-de-sac to get swept up in Old West flavor. On their way to a gunfight with the Kankers, Sheriff Eddy and his deputies spot three plots in the ground big enough to hold them. After getting spooked and running, we find out FarmBoy Rolf made them to give his pigs a mud bath.

* WesternAnimation/TexAveryMGMCartoons:
** One non-Western appearance of note is in Creator/TexAvery's "Dumb Hounded" (the first Droopy cartoon). As the wolf falls down a tall building, an undertaker jumps after him, measures him, and jumps back up.
** Also used in the Tex Avery cartoon "Little 'Tinker", in a series of gags in which a skunk is attempting to woo female forest creatures by impersonating Frank Sinatra, and some [[{{Anvilicious}} not-too-subtle]] jabs at how skinny Sinatra is are made by showing the skunk fall through a knothole on the stage, singing from an iron lung, being outweighed by a feather on a scale, and of course, at one point an undertaker comes up from behind him and measures him for a casket while he's singing.

* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' CattlePunk episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E3ATownCalledMercy "A Town Called Mercy"]], the town's undertaker is rather helpful, giving a motivational speech to the Doctor after he ends up marshall of the town. But he can't help pulling out the tape measure each time the Doctor turns his back to him.

This is the guy who will take a tape measure to you in the street, right before your big gunfight. He'd be fairly nondescript, if it weren't for that morbid cheerfulness with which he goes about his business.

* Undertakers in the ''ComicBook/LuckyLuke'' comics usually sport yellow or pale-greenish skin and are very cheerful at work, only sometimes miffed when some of their prospective clients are lacking professionality and shoo them away when they break out their tape measure. Some of them even keep pet vultures. ''Lucky Luke'''s first illustrator, Morris, also had the habit of using drawings of people he didn't like (especially teachers) for those roles.

The most used one is named Matthias Bones, has very pale-greenish skin and is said to be a caricature of Boris Karloff. Though often neutral he is not above giving instructions to the desperados and other villains about whom to kill, as he put straight a workaholic.

* Marshall (that's his name) in ''Film/CarryOn Cowboy'' is mistaken for dead early on and measured up by the undertaker. Later, when he is off to heroically save the town, the undertaker gives him a reassuring grin and tells him not to worry, he kept the measurements just in case.

* Wrestling/TheUndertaker, while well known as a wrestler, no longer fits the Western Character. He began as a mortician character before evolving as a guy has gone from using death to intimidate his opponents to a zombie to the GrimReaper to a DarkMessiah Cult leader to a BadassBiker and back again as TheArtifact. These days he's regarded as '''''the''''' best in the business, the guy who rolls around a few times a year for his Wrestling/WrestleMania streak or to take part in a hot angle.

* ''WebAnimation/TheBackwaterGospel'' focuses on a mysterious, silent undertaker who travels from town to town, and is said to never leave until he claims a body. Despite how ominious he is, the undertaker never actually ''does'' anything--every death that happens in story occurs either because of accidents, or from the townsfolks own paranoia.
