* ''Film/StarTrekGenerations''. While on a sailing ship holodeck program, Lt. Worf has to leap from the tip of the plank and grab his commander's cap (suspended overhead) as part of the ceremony marking his promotion. When he does this without falling off, Riker decides to make things more interesting by making the plank disappear. Evidently that was an error. Picard: "Number One, it's ''retract'' the plank, not ''remove'' the plank." (or, judging from Riker's grin, it wasn't.)\\

* OlderThanRadio example from ThatOtherWiki: "The earliest known use of the phrase is the latter half of the 18th century... the phrase 'walking the plank' is recorded in Francis Grose's 'Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue', which was published in 1788... In 1769, mutineer George Wood confessed to his chaplain at Newgate Prison that he and his fellow mutineers had sent their officers to walk the plank."

* Like the Woody Woodpecker example above, the ''[[WesternAnimation/DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines Magnificent Muttley]]'' segment "Muttley On The Bounty" has the snickering canine forced to walk the plank of the H.M.S. Bounty after biting Captain Bligh's (Dastardly's) hand when attempting to take a medal from him. Muttley walks to the edge then under the plank. When Blight wonders what went wrong and run onto the plank's edge, Muttley is on the deck sawing the plank off.

* A WoodyWoodpecker cartoon had Woody being forced to walk the plank several times by a pirate dog. Each time he did it, Woody would walk over the edge of the plank, upside-down along the underside of it and would then somehow come up behind the dog and jab him in the rear, causing ''him'' to jump into the water.
