Added DiffLines:

** Averted, since, in DM's own words 'The Statue of Liberty is hollow And I stood precisely where the hole in the middle is.'
* The opening titles to ''WesternAnimation/VictorAndHugo'' end with a safe (which they previously tried to blow open) falling on them, then the door falling down to reveal the brothers inside.


* ''WebComic/EightBitTheater'' played with this, using an armoire instead of a safe falling on Fighter. Fighter emerges from it and Red Mage launches a convoluted explanation that states that Fighter survived because his knowledge of cartoon physics warped reality itself. Then Fighter reveals that the bottom just was cheap particle board.
** Note that this is the Armoire of ''Invincibility'', making the whole thing that much more impossible... Unless of course it's as dysfunctional as everything else in this universe.

* On ''GarfieldAndFriends'', when a safe (27-ton, in compliance with a [[FalseReassurance promise]] [[ExactWords not to drop a 16-ton safe on him]]) is dropped on Roy for [[DisproportionateRetribution squeezing toothpaste from the top of the tube]]. Not only was he inside, but he was able to open the safe door from there. (The previous two lessons, incidentally, were punctuated by a falling upright piano and a 1988 convertible. Like the safe, he popped through the bottom of both.)

* One episode of ''DangerMouse'' did this with ''The Statue of Liberty''.
* This happens to {{Popeye}} in "What, No Spinach?" He is unharmed, of course - Wimpy instigated cafe owner Bluto to use the safe as a weapon specifically so it would get opened and he could get to the stash of food inside.
