* John Denver popularized the song "Saturday Night in Toledo, Ohio". It was written in 1967 when Randy Sparks and his group arrived in Toledo at 10 PM on a Saturday night, and found everything closed. Following a performance of the song on ''The Tonight Show'', there was a large public outcry from Toledo residents. [[AnswerSong In response, the City Fathers recorded a song entitled "We're Strong For Toledo".]] Ultimately the controversy was such that John Denver cancelled a concert shortly thereafter, but when Denver returned for a 1980 concert, he set a one-show attendance record at the venue, Centennial Hall, and sang the song as well to the approval of the crowd.

In fiction, the city is a favorite to mean a not-really-significant-place. Even its residents aren't immune to this. Once a tourism campaign for the city ("Tole'''do'''" as in things to ''do''), was turned into a ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Simpsons]]'' reference of "[[CatchPhrase D'oh!]]" instead of "Do".

"Do". While UsefulNotes/{{Cleveland}} holds claim to the name "The Mistake on the Lake", sometimes Toledo is called "The ''Other'' Mistake of the Lake".

* ''Series/TheDrewCareyShow'', set in DrewCarey's real hometown of Cleveland, makes several references to Toledo. A few notable examples include Mr. Wick being sent there by the Winfred Louder board for retraining, Mimi being rewarded for a good idea with a gift certificate that can only be used at their Toledo store (and only under some very specific conditions), and Drew's brother Steve attending a porcelain doll convention hosted by the city.

!!Tropes applying to Toledo:

* InherentlyFunnyWords: Toh-Lee-Doh. It's pretty fun to say all the "oh" sounds.
** For many years and two separate terms had a mayor named "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carty_Finkbeiner Carty Finkbeiner]]".
* NamesTheSame: With Toledo, Spain. No one is completely sure if the two cities are related by name or not, but they are official sister cities. When the work of the celebrated Toledo, Spain artist El Greco (15411614) came to Toledo, Ohio on tour in the 1980s, the Toledo Museum of Art called it "El Greco comes home".
** Although it is somewhat important to note that there is a pronunciation difference between the two cities. Toledo, Ohio, is toh-LEE-doh whereas Toledo, Spain, is toh-LEY-doh.
** Toledo, Spain has a street named Calle de Toledo, Ohio. [[http://www.bhalu.com/naveen/photo/spain-99/toledo/toledo-ohio.html Picture]]
** And Toledo, Ohio's major newspaper is called ''The Blade'', to honor the Spanish city's legendary steel industry.
* PretextForWar: Toledo almost came to that in 183536. The state of Ohio and the territory of Michigan both wanted the "Toledo strip", the entire strip of land bordering Michigan and Ohio including Toledo and stretching to Indiana -- due to subjective interpretation of both laws and geography. The dispute came to the point where both Michigan and Ohio assembled their militias. Finally, the federal government intervened before any formal hostilities and they gave the Toledo strip to Ohio. Ohio was a swing state for the upcoming presidential election ([[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything as it always has been]]), so President UsefulNotes/AndrewJackson wanted to keep Ohio happy, and Michigan was still just a territory with no electoral votes and no representation in Congress. In 1837, as one of Jackson's last presidential acts, Michigan was given statehood and that upper peninsula it still has today, [[WinWinEnding which ended up being rich in resources]]. (So who ''really'' lost? Wisconsin!) [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toledo_War Feel free to check out the full story on Wikipedia.]]
** While on the subject, the Toledo War has an interesting connection to the trope YouAreNumberSix -- Having a number instead of a name. Major Benjamin F. Stickney, an Ohio partisan, had two sons who were ''actually named'' "One" and "Two."[[note]]The assumption by their parents was they could choose their own names as they got older, but One and Two never did, seeming happy with their names.[[/note]] Two Stickney goes down in history for being responsible for the only bloodshed of the "war", when he stabbed a Michigan Sheriff's Deputy (whose injuries were non-life-threatening).
* WaterSourceTampering: Made national news when a citywide ban on drinking municipal water affecting 400,000 people was issued for about 48 hours, August 24, 2014. An algae bloom in Lake Erie -- caused by fertilizer runoff from the Maumee River, thus a manmade problem -- was releasing a toxin into the water supply and the citizens were warned against drinking and washing in it.
** Social media was having fun calling it the "(Empty) Glass City"
