** The ''Series/{{Angel}}'' spin-off would also play with the trope. A vampire Angel sired is giving him the IHateYouVampireDad speech, accompanied by much PunctuatedPounding.

** And of course it's PlayedForLaughs in that all teenage girls think being grounded means the end of the world. Which in Buffy's case is [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt literally true]].

-->'''Penn:''' Well, you were right about one thing, Angelus. The last 200 years has been about me sticking it to my father. But Iíve come to realize something--itís you! ''[he jumps up and kicks Angel in the stomach]'' You made me! ''[kicks him in the face, then double fists him a couple of times]'' You taught me! ''[Angel drops to the floor and Penn jumps on his back]'' You approved of me in ways my mortal father never did! You are my real father, Angelus.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': In the episode, "Postcards from the Wedge", Bart Simpson is grounded after causing the school to be demolished. Now this was a first for the series as a whole, due to the fact that usually Bart is sent to his room, or punished in other, different manners. The only time Bart really was grounded was in the comic book story, "When Bongo's Collide". But this episode marks the first time this trope was acted upon and stood for the rest of the episode, as we see Bart suffer from this punishment in the episode's final scene.

It would remain the last grounding in the series, until Season 27's "The Marge-ian Chronicles", where Lisa Simpson would be grounded for the first time ever.

** {{Deconstructed|Trope}} in [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_jihYz-YgA Caillou has had enough!], in which Caillou is grounded by his dad simply for watching ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated''. This time, his mom finally takes action, and calls Boris out. Boris initially tries to defend himself by saying Caillou needs to behave better and that his groundings work, but Doris says otherwise. Eventually, though, Boris calls Caillou an "out-of-control brat" and paints himself as the OnlySaneMan, even going as far as to ground Doris. This results in a slapfight, and Doris grounds Boris, condemning him to the closet as Caillou and Rosie (who heard everything) rush to call the police. The next video, "Caillou's Terrible Fire Drill!", sees Caillou freaking out during a fire drill, and Boris, of course, grounding him. However, Doris tells Caillou to disregard him, as the events of the previous video have stuck, and Boris is still being held hostage in the closet.

* ''WesternAnimation/Disney'': Just about every Disney Channel show has a reference of some sort towards being grounded, both live-action and animated. These include, WesternAnimation/TheProudFamily, WesternAnimation/PepperAnn, WesternAnimation/LloydInSpace, WesternAnimation/GravityFalls, WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan, etc. And that's just the animated series.

* ''Series/BykerGrove'' has a storyline in which character Jemma Dobson is grounded for attending an all-night rave (popular when the episodes in question aired in the early Nineties) when she knew her father wouldn't approve. This means she will miss a vital audition for a film which is being shot locally, but her father refuses to lift the punishment, saying it will make her think twice about going to any more all-night raves. On learning that her sister is trying to take her place at the audition, Jemma sneaks out of the house and goes to the audition, only to land herself in more trouble when she unwittingly accepts a lift in what turns out to be a stolen car.
