* In one episode of ''GarfieldAndFriends'', Garfield mentions while [[NoFourthWall speaking to the audience]] he has a particular dislike of cartoon characters who overreact with {{Wild Take}}s (which, ironically, describes the hypochondriac Wade Duck on the same show pretty well).
* In an episode of ''TinyToonAdventures'', Plucky Duck gets stuck in a WildTake.
* Averted in ''{{Daria}}'', whose shtick involves rarely reacting noticeably to any sight gag beyond a subtle change of facial expression.
** She made a DoubleTake in the BeavisAndButthead episode ''Sporting Goods'', though.

* A particular take is someone coming across something harmless that they find scary, like a rat or cockroach, and then screaming while grabbing at another person.
