* ''ComlicBook/AchilleTalon'' has a strip where the locals advertise an upcoming block party by parading around with signs reading "Fete de quartier! Grand repas de sanglier!" (Block Party- Boar Banquet). Unfortunately, what with everyone jostling and walking at different speeds, they ended up reading "Fete du sang! pas de quartier!" (Feast of Blood! No Quarter!)

* {{Played with}} in an episode of TheBoondocks. Huey assembles an army of sign wavers to try and shut down Jasmine's lemonade stand, but when Huey tries to start a riot, they just stand around swaying ineffectually. One of them explains that they ''will'' shut down the lemonade stand...even if it takes several years.

* One episode of ''JohnnyBravo'' started off with Johnny at a war protest. He was yelling, "I love pie! I love pie!", and holding a sign saying as much.
* An example from ''TheSimpsons''-in "Itchy and Scratchy and Marge", Marge's anti-''Itchy and Scratchy'' protest, triggered by Maggie whacking Homer in the head with a mallet after she watched one of the cartoons, starts with Marge and the other family members marching outside the show's production company. Homer's sign is a detailed explanation of what happened to him and Maggie's says "Stop Me Before I Kill Again". Bart changes his sign to "'''Don't''' Ban ''Itchy and Scratchy''". As the protest grows, additional signs include "Save the Cartoon Animals," "Bring Back ''Wagon Train''" and "What If A Mouse Blew Up A Cat And Nobody Cared".
