* In ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'', this happens to WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck and WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck in the Ink-n-Paint Club. After several minutes of trying to sabotage one another's piano playing, Donald [[RefugeInAudacity fires a cannon at Daffy's piano]], flooring his own and destroying Daffy's. Both of them, along with their pianos, are dragged off-stage with hooks.

Real {{Vaudeville}} shows would DropTheCow on bad or overly long acts with [[HooksAndCrooks "the hook", a shepherd's crook]] extended from offstage to pull away the performer. Oftentimes by the neck. But in cartoons, you don't even need to be on a stage to get the hook. Any bad performance can get the hook, even if you're performing on top of a fence - it just reaches out from BehindTheBlack and drags you offscreen. Wearing a red-and-white vertically striped shirt and a straw boater makes you especially susceptible to this, as does dancing while holding a cane. Spending a while dodging the hook, continuing to perform all the while, before eventually getting snared is a common feature.

* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' [[AnimatedMusicVideo PMV]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmJ2Bkx2C5A "Beat It"]] features one in the post-music video part, when Animated James's OC asks Flash Sentry if he doesn't mind not being included in the video, because... nobody likes him. Cue Flash struck speechless, and a vaudeville hook slowly reaches for the pegasus before pulling him offstage. Then Ms. Harshwhinny walks in, carrying the hook, and Animated James gives her money.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents'' special "Fairy Idol", the losers of the singing competition get this treatment. When Juandisimo was one of those disqualified, he cried out "No! I am too sexy for the stick!".
