* An early episode of ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' has Kermit introducing the show this way.
-->'''Kermit:''' How would you like to see 4,000 woodpeckers performing an aerial ballet while 87 gorillas and two dozen elephants do the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy? Well, forget it! Because, instead, we've got Joel Grey as a guest star, which, in a way, is like having all the excitement of everything I already mentioned without having to clean up afterwards.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' episode, "Be A-Fred, Be Very A-Fred", Grim goes to inquire about his laxative commercial. The very angry executive points to a chart that shows vast improvement in sales, saying, "This has ''nothing'' to do with us!" Then points to the one that does, showing the sales taking a downward spiral with a picture of a toilet at the current, lowest sales rating. (Clearly, a laxative commercial with TheGrimReaper in it was ''not'' a good idea.)

* A deleted scene from ''Film/WeWereSoldiers'' has a group of soldiers chatting about their new [[SergeantRock Sergeant Major]], a mean fellow by the name of [[FluffyTheTerrible Basil Plumley]]. One of them used to be stationed with Plumley, and tells the others a story related to him: [[EnsignNewbie A brand new lieutenant]] orders all of his men to put all of their ribbons and medals on their uniforms, so he can see what kind of men he is leading. One of his [[OldSoldier senior NCOs]] comes out without having done so, and the lieutenant [[TheNeidermeyer chews him out]], without the sergeant [[TheStoic visibly reacting.]] The sergeant goes back to the barracks, and comes out buck naked, save for a pair of boots, his ribbons and medals pinned ''directly to his chest'', and a Medal of Honor. [[note]]''That'' guy worked for Sergeant Major Plumley, and was scared ''shitless'' of him[[/note]]
