* In ''WesternAnimation/TheBookOfLife'', Manolo proposes to Maria by making a pathway out of candles to guide her to a tree on the outskirts of town, where he performs a song for her. It doesn't work out, but [[DiabolusExMachina not in]] [[OurHeroIsDead the usual way.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/IDreamOfJeannie'': When Major Nelson finally proposes to Jeannie (that is to say, makes a proposal of his own free will that eventually results in him marrying Jeannie later in the season), he does so by merely introducing her to Dr. Bellows and General Shafer as his fiancé. MakesSenseInContext as Jeannie has been willing and eager to marry the then Captain Nelson as early as the second episode of the first season.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'': In the [[TheMovie cinematic]] [[GrandFinale series finale]], the marriage proposal manages to be heartfelt, in character and very much atypical. [[spoiler: Miss Brooks finds out she's been ''de facto'' engaged to Mr. Boynton when Mrs. Davis introduces Mr. Boynton's mother as her new boarder in Miss Brooks' place (so Mrs. Boynton can be close to her son without having to live with Mr. Boynton and Miss Brooks). Miss Brooks then goes to the zoo to meet up with Mr. Boynton. WithThisRing comes into play as Miss Brooks finds a ring in a box of Cracker Jack, which is promptly stolen by a female monkey. Nonetheless, Miss Brooks and Mr. Boynton leave arm in arm and see how the wallpaper Miss Brooks' selected will look in their future home.]]
