* Most of the child actors from ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory'' were well-behaved. That is, except for Paris Themmen (Mike Teevee) who was an absolute nightmare while filming. Themmen opened a glass dome containing the wasp colony for the inventing room scene, which led to the set having to be evacuated and him getting stung multiple times. At one point Wilder himself said, "I'm going to shoot [him] in the head tomorrow."

* In ''Film/Maleficent'', the scene that kicked off the title character's HeelFaceTurn was when 2-year-old Aurora approached her in the woods and wasn't afraid, as if the child's innocence still saw the good in her. Unfortunately, the toddler actresses they tested were too frightened by Jolie's costume to go near her. They found the perfect solution by getting [[RealLifeRelative Jolie's daughter Vivienne]] to play the part, since she still recognized her mother and was naturally calm around her.

** An InUniverse example: Ms. Carol always comes up with a new fun phrase for a child to repeat as part of her popular children's show. Angelica sneaks backstage and overhears Carol exclaim that she thinks all children are little (Cue DiscretionShot). Angelica gleefully concludes that it's some sort of secret fun phrase and that she'll definitely be rewarded when Ms Carol asks her the question because she's the only one that knows the answer. Needless to say, HilarityEnsues and Ms. Carol is ruined.

** The first contestants on October 5, 1964 were dogs Suzie (star of the ''Folies Bergère'') and Suzie Jr. (her understudy), who proved to be a bit troublesome. Suzie got scared by the buzzer and kept barking for about a minute (the judge whistled instead for the rest of the round) and Suzie Jr. had to leave near the end to do some "business":

* Happens on ''Series/RupaulsDragRace'' in the Season 10 finale. During Asia O'Hara's lipsynch battle against Kameron Michaels, Asia intended to release live butterflies from various parts of her outfit, but the air-conditioning in the theater made them sleepy and sluggish.
