** In "Hare Remover", Elmer tried to capture a rabbit to use as a test subject for a formula. He decided to use the trick of the box that shuts down when someone pulls the stick. The trick was so old Bugs commented having heard about them from his ''grandfather'' and not believing (until then) he'd see one himself. He deliberately fell for it so whoever bothered setting it wouldn't feel disappointed.

* ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'': Subverted in "The Hero". Brad Starlight insists on taking the long and dangerous route through Lord Drakor's Labyrinth of Delusion because the bright and cheerful-looking shortcut is such an obvious trap, but it turns out to be perfectly safe (though Brad only discovers this ''after'' getting horribly injured).

** In the Season 4 episode "Mrs. Puff, You're Fired!", [[CaptainObvious Mrs. Puff is fired]] and replaced by a drill sergeant. After going over the "no eating" rule, he offers bon-bons. A student eats one and is thrown through the wall.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'': The box in "The Farnsworth Parabox". Lampshaded by Farnsworth, who muses how enticing the box is because he told them not to open it.

** While touring an animation studio, Rocko and Filbert come across a window with a sign "Don't tap on the glass," which they don't take seriously in the least. As it turns out, tapping on the glass causes the windowpane to shatter completely, and take out a bit of the neighboring one.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' parodying AroundTheWorldInEightyDays, the pair are in rural Italy. [[GreatBigBookOfEverything Pinky's guide on local customs around the world]] has an important chapter on various wacky facial expressions and peculiar gestures that rural Italians find incredibly offensive. After Pinky demonstrates them to Brain, Brain winds up accidentally performing every literally single offending expression and gesture as he attempts to communicate to the villagers, resulting in [[HilarityEnsues hilarity and pitchforks ensuing]].

** Perhaps the most potent distillation of Schmuck Bait was the History Eraser button from the episode "Space Madness". Ren tells Stimpy to guard said button, and tells him that something incredibly bad may or may not happen if someone were to press the button, so he must under absolutely no circumstances touch it. Ren leaves, and the annoying narrator promptly enters the scene with the following:
