* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSwanPrincess'', Prince Derek orders his musicians to dress up as animals so he can have target practice, and they're not happy about it (even if he is using blunt training arrows). What results is a [[HurricaneOfPuns Hurricane of Visual Puns]], including "This masquerade is more than I can bear!", "I've got the lion's share [of humiliation]," and multiple calls of "{{Duck}}!" only for the duck to ask "What?" and get shot.

* ''Series/{{Scorpion}}'s'' 2017 HalloweenEpisode ended with the team leaving for a costume party. All of their costumes were visual puns. Ralph (who has a crush on Sylvester's punctuality-obsessed assistant) goes as an Early Bird (a bird with a worm). Sylvester goes as The Devil's Advocate (he's just passed the bar exam and wears devil's horns). Happy goes as a Sad Sack (a paper bag with a sad face drawn on it). Tobey goes as a Ceiling Fan (he simply wears a sign around his neck that says "I Love Ceilings!!!").

* The cover of Music/{{REM}}'s ''Lifes Rich Pageant'' is a picture of bassist Bill Berry coupled with a picture of some bison, as a visual pun on "Buffalo Bill". This also qualifies as a StealthPun, since the cover art has nothing to do with the album title, and the actual words "Buffalo Bill" don't appear anywhere else either.

** "Yankee Doodle Bugs" has Bugs explaining American history to his nephew Clyde. Among other jokes, he says that Manhattan was bought from the Indians "for a song" (Indian being given sheet music) and describes the Boston Tea Party in terms of tea with "tacks" (which is both shown visually and made into a verbal pun).
** "Bugs Bunny Rides Again" has Sam telling to Bugs to leave because "[[NotBigEnoughForTheTwoOfUs This town ain't big enough for the two of us!]]" Bugs runs offscreen, we hear sawing and hammering noises, and then Bugs reveals he made the town bigger.
** In "The Daffy Doc", WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck is a doctor's assistant and gets kicked out for causing trouble in the operating room.

** Both "Hyde and Go Tweet" and "Lighthouse Mouse" have Sylvester, faced with a monstrous bird/mouse, freeze in horror, and then collapse into a pile of cat bits on the floor. The pun is that he's "falling to pieces".
