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. 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 reachs for the pegasus before pulling him offstage. Then Ms. Harshwhinny walks in, carrying the hook, and Animated James gives her money.
