* This [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdH--kRrLdo 1993 Energizer commercial]] features the Witched Witch of the West trying to fricassee the Energizer Bunny, and winding up all wet as a result.

* {{Claymation}} Dominos Pizza mascot [[{{Foil}} The Noid]] was as bad as Wile E. Coyote at times, in commercials like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myhWLagUhEs this one]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Str8GOl-iYA this one]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZD5gMsy-nuc and especially this one.]]
* There was an Advertising/ErinEsurance commercial where burglars tried to break into Erin's house. Her cat dumps some stuff onto the burglars, causing the dynamite they had set up to blow up on them.
