* Done ''accidentally'' in ''Film/ProblemChild 2'': at her hen party [=LaWanda=] greets two nurses right after eating a cream pie... And because Junior had previously swapped her blood sample with that of a rabid dog, the nurses take that as confirmation she's already showing symptoms and restrain her.


* In the {{Droopy}} short "Wags To Riches," Spike puts shaving cream on a sleeping Droopy and phones in a report of a mad dog, but a fan blows the foam onto Spike's face just as the dog catcher arrives.

** In the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short "The Waggily Tale", when Junior dreams he is a dog, his owner brushes his teeth with shaving soap, causing him to be mistaken for a mad dog.
** In another ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short, "Porky's Party", WesternAnimation/PorkyPig's dog Black Fury uses shaving cream to get rid of the hair that grew as a result of his getting into the hair tonic. When Black Fury comes out of the bathroom, everyone panics and runs away from him.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MarthaSpeaks'' episode "Ain't Nothin' But a Pound Dog", Martha the talking dog falls into the bathtub and gets soap on her face. She goes out to look for her collar and the humans she's trying to get it from think she's mad (probably because of rabies) due to the fact that she has froth on her face and is chasing them.


* Creator/BillCosby's stand-up routine "Roland and the Rollercoaster" deals with his crazy friend Roland, who used to do things like keep soap chips in his mouth. When people think Roland's head has been turned around by the roller coaster (due to Roland wearing his clothes backwards), there is a throwaway line from someone seeing Roland: "And he's got the rabies!" It's a good Brick Joke as it usually takes the audience a few moments to remember the soap chips in the mouth (which was mentioned early on in a fairly long story).

* One comic strip in ''{{Viz}}'' ran a story about the then recent opening of the Channel Tunnel. An apparently rabid French dog emerged on the English side, and the main character exclaims "Oh no! In a [[MillionToOneChance million to one scenario]], a rabid French dog has made it through the Channel Tunnel!" The dog is shortly followed by its owner who explains that far from being rabid, it ate some soap, which it had mistaken for cheese because [[DirtyForeigner we do not have soap in France]].
