Often, it's fun to jump rope. However, sometimes, jumping rope may not be as easy as you think it is. If you're {{The Klutz}}, {{The Fool}}, or maybe even the {{Butt Monkey}}, expect things to go haywire when you try to jump rope; you either get tangled up while jumping, the rope gets tied up around your feet, or the jump rope flies out of your hands and breaks a window or a vase.

Expect this trope to show up in {{Comedy}} or WesternAnimation.


[[AC:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* Within various {{hentai}} pics, it's not rare for a woman to somehow manage to snag her top off while attempting to jump rope. In some cases, she manages to put herself into bondage situations.
* A recurring gag in the first half-dozen or so episodes of ''Manga/{{Nichijou}}''

* A famous issue of ''ComicBook/SheHulk'' featured this. The cover art [[CoversAlwaysLie implied that she was about to perform a naked jump-rope show]]. The first few interior pages [[SceneryCensor hid her body behind the rope motion lines]]. Finally, it's revealed that she's scantily but street-legally clad.

[[AC:Live Action TV]]
* On an episode of ''Series/{{MASH}}'', Father Mulcahy was jumping rope as part of training for a race against a runner from another camp. The camera then zooms out to show Hawkeye and BJ are the ones twirling the rope for him, as Mulcahy says this is the only way he knows how do it.

* A few ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' strips had Snoopy getting caught in Lucy's jump rope.

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'': [[TheQuincyPunk Birdie's]] Super Move involves tying the opponent up in [[ChainPain chains]] and playing jump with it, slamming the opponent to the ground over and over.

* This happened several times to WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}}.
* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Dragon Tales}}'' episode "Rope Trick" had this happen to Zak and Wheezie when they were trying to learn how to jump rope.
