* Stories of this type routinely appear on Drew Curtis' {{Fark}}, usually with a variation on the tagline "[[SarcasmMode Ugly-ass]] baby [[MadLibsCatchPhrase [noun] born in [place]]]." (The more "ugly-ass" the description, the more [[TastesLikeDiabetes pancreas-killingly adorable]] said baby critter will be.)

* Parodied in the Creator/WillFerrell movie ''Film/AnchormanTheLegendOfRonBurgundy'', which included a news broadcast concluding with a waterskiing squirrel, and ongoing coverage ([[SeriousBusiness "Panda Watch"]]) of a pregnant panda at the San Diego Zoo. The climax of the movie takes place at the birth of the pandas. ''No one'', not even Veronica Corningstone, who is annoyed about being assigned to sappy human interest stories, questions the significance of this story, and none of hordes of journalists at the zoo that day notice when several people nearly die after jumping into the grizzly enclosure.

Part of a NewsBroadcast, usually the last segment, in which clips of stories involving footage of [[Literature/HarryPotter waterskiing budgies]], squirrels adopted by mother dogs, [[CatUpATree cats rescued by firemen]], [[InvertedTrope firemen rescued by cats]], or otherwise [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter crowd-pleasing cute 'n' sappy animals]] are shown to boost [[RatingsStunt ratings]]. In the event of a lack of fuzzy critters, the [[InspirationallyDisadvantaged Special Olympics]] or [[BabiesMakeEverythingBetter large litters of human babies can sometimes fill this role]]. Often (incorrectly) referred to as [[HumanInterestStory "Human Interest" stories]], despite the general lack of anything interesting (or human).
