* In the ''Series/{{MASH}}'' finale, Major Winchester breaks the classical record he was listening to after [[spoiler:he finds out the band he had formed got killed in an ambush.]] This may or may not be an example of the trope; in 1953, when the Korean War ended, large-diameter shellac records were still quite common.
** The show had a few of those. One episode had Hawkeye and BJ breaking all of Winchester's records by smashing them against their heads.

* ''WesternAnimation/BeanyAndCecil'' took this UpToEleven in the episode "D.J. the D.J." when Dishonest John gets Cecil to produce his song as a record. He sings "Kid, your records are going to sell like hotcakes!" and stuffs a huge stack of LPs into Cecil's mouth and [[VisualPun pours syrup over the records]]. Then he adds, "I think that you're [[HurricaneOfPuns going to be a smash!]]" and hits Cecil on the head with a huge mallet, shattering the records.* In ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMeetsTheBooBrothers'', Shaggy is fed up with the ghosts' song and dance number at one point, swipes the record off their record player, and smashes it on the ground as if it were made of glass.

* Averted on ''LeaveItToBeaver'' in the episode "Dance Contest." Fed up with Theodore and Larry dancing and fooling around to his cha-cha instructional record, Wally attempts to remove it from his phonograph, only he forgot to remove the record changer arm, so he winds up breaking the vinyl LP in half.

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jV5jdjrsVRU early '80s titles]] to ''TopOfThePops'' end with a vinyl record exploding into fragments in mid air. (Although this clearly wasn't dramatic enough, as the titles were later updated to have an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEgK1uNzEpY exploding TV instead]]).
* The modern ''Series/NevermindTheBuzzcocks'' opening has vinyl records fall and shatter on the ground. Different record covers are occasionally shown. This is probably in homage to the ''TopOfThePops'' example above.

* In a "Mr. Know-It-All" segment from ''WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle'', Bullwinkle tries to get disc-jockey Boris to play his hit record.
-->'''Boris:''' I'd like you to hear ''my'' latest hit! ''(hits the record with a hammer)''
-->'''Bullwinkle:''' Sounds more like a hit-and-run.

* In a scene in ''Film/DuckSoup'', Harpo produces a record when Trentino tells him to [[VisualPun see his record]]. An enraged Trentino tosses the record up in the air, and Harpo shoots it like he was shooting skeet, to which Chico awards him a cigar.
