Don't worry, mooks are fine!

In kids shows we are always ensured that mooks didn't die

I couldn't find this trope so I made this in case it doesn't yet exist.

In kids shows and such, since heroes can't be shown killing mooks if they defeat mooks in usually lethal ways(like shooting down enemy airplane) we always see establishing shot that confirms they didn't die. So if enemy airplane gets shot down, we see them parachuting out, if mooks crashes the car we see them getting out, etc.

This causes rather weird pacing since camera shots that confirm their survival tend to be rather slow and long.
