Puns on the country name (Cameroon lists shrimp), the country's specialty (Chile lists Chilean wines, Japan includes "Hello Kitty, {{Haik|u}}ai, Tamagochi, Sudoku, and Wasabi"), {{Punny Name}}s sometimes based on what the country has (South Korea has "Kim Sam-Sung, Kia, Hy Un-Dai e Kun Gui-Fu") and sometimes not (Slovakia: "Swarowský, Bratislavský, Hondačívik and [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Robotnik]]"), it has everything, including phonetic puns that only work in Portuguese (Germany has "Weissfüder", which in English would be something like "Gofükurself").

* The "wood" "[[HehHehYouSaidX wood]]" scene from ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'':


->''"Well... I had an Uncle Richard that tried to bring nude theater to a festival in Waterdeep... Exposure is usually good for an actor's career, but even so, a cold reception for the play caused the cast to shrink steadily. Blackballed, my uncle tried to recruit from the thieves' guild, but they wouldn't let their nick-ers go. 'Just bare with me,' he would say, but they were afraid of being stripped of their dignity. He gave up the lead to attract new members, and eventually the production's genius was uncovered, even with his part left out."''

In {{anime}}, the GagSeries is also famous for using the Hurricane of Puns. Japanese comedy is quite fond of puns and malapropisms, because of how certain words and names in the Japanese language can be misquoted or alternatively written. This is one reason why many WidgetSeries don't translate into other languages very well, or get treated to a GagDub instead. Puns that must be explained [[DontExplainTheJoke usually end up not being funny.]] ({{Woolseyism}} is when it does work out, usually with the dub replacing the jokes with more local ones that are the same in spirit instead of sticking to a literal translation.)

* The 4Kids dub of ''Manga/OnePiece''. Almost unarguably, one of the reasons it was such an appalling failure was the fact that it was essentially a nonstop hurricane of puns. Even with the most serious villains and in the most desperate situations, every time a character spoke, it was deliver yet another horrible pun. The worst part, and the main deviation from the original as described a couple entries below, was that most of them ''made no sense''.

* The creator of ''Manga/SailorMoon'' is said to love puns. Tsukino Usagi, read last name first as Japanese people read names, also sounds like "rabbit of the moon", which is a (universal) reference to the bunny-shaped shape one can detect when looking at the moon. This is the case for all of the Inners, as their surnames all end in "no".
* In ''Manga/HajimeNoIppo: New Challenger'', one of the later episodes has Ippo visit with the family of the gym's new rookie, Itagaki... only to find out that the entire family is addicted to bad puns. During the supper, they let fly with such a multi-directional hurricane of terrible, terrible puns, that even Ippo - an experienced boxer known for his inhuman toughness - is up against the ropes, desperately searching for any subject - ANYTHING - that will allow him to stop the barrage.. Takamura later acknowledges Itagaki's father as the better one when it comes to bad puns, evidenced by him calling Mr.Itagaki "master."

* Yet another [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]] example is their dub of ''Anime/UltimateMuscle'', alo known as ''Kinnikuman Nisei''. In this case, though, the puns (along with the goofy and over-the-top voice acting) actually ''work to the show's advantage'', thanks to the ''Manga/{{Kinnikuman}}'' series itself being an action-comedy. Thus, despite it getting the [[{{Bowdlerise}} usual treatment]] that 4Kids is known for implementing, ''Ultimate Muscle'' is still considered one of their better dubs.

* The ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' comics probably have one of the highest pun to panel ratio known to man. Naturally, all translations require intense {{Woolseyism}}, which the translators thankfully deliver. Probably the best example comes from English translation of the very first book, ''Asterix the Gaul'', after a potion causes the Romans' hair and beards to grow uncontrollably. It'll give you a good idea of what the books are like:

** Pig is trying to watch ''Film/GoneWithTheWind'', but it keeps getting interrupted by a car ad, and the salesmen is Chinese, likes the Hoover Dam, and is recovering from a drug problem. The punch line is "Frank Lee's car lot... High? Don't give a dam." The next panel has Rat saying that it's "Frankly, my dear."

** It was done in the first movie as well, for a different shape. Eventually, after a suitable length of time had passed, Austin's 'love-interest-du-jour' would end up saying something along the lines of 'Okay, we've given the villain enough time to get away by punning', leading to general agreement and a quick exit.
** And again in the third where it even gets {{lampshade|Hanging}}d by Music/OzzyOsbourne saying they did the exact same joke the previous two movies. Further parodied in that he used the words everyone else was deliberately avoiding ("Boobs!") but in a non-mammarial context. The joke is that they're ''all'' out of context. The satellite was shaped like a pair of breasts (Boobs), and Ozzy was bitching about how everyone doing the joke is stupid.
* ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'' features a lengthy battle sequence wherein comic relief robot C-3PO finds his head accidentally placed on a battle droid's body, and a battle droid head placed on his body. Many painful puns about being "quite beside myself" ensue. "She seems to be on top of things." ''Attack of the Clones'' turned Obi-Wan into a DeadpanSnarker.

* ''Literature/ThePhantomTollbooth'' was filled with these, many of which the book's intended target audience is unlikely to get--although probably not as many as some adults might think, since the children most likely to read and enjoy the book are intellectual-type kids with an appreciation for puns and wordplay.
