** Also by the same author, in ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}'' the Sock Eater does this when the wizards surprise it, because its instinct to flee is being countermanded by its desire to keep eating the Lecturer's socks. Its mouth keeps chewing while its legs ineffectually scrabble around underneath it.

In many cartoons, especially ones by {{Hanna-Barbera}}, whenever a character starts running, they usually run on the spot for a few seconds before running away. It doesn't matter what they're running from, or why, but they always do this. A WheelOFeet is usually applied to this. It's common for this animation to be accompanied by about four seconds of "wacky" percussive sound effects followed quickly by a "slingshot" zip (perhaps best onomatopoeized as [[SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud "Whamma-lamma-bamma-ramma-zamma-whamma-lamma-bamma-ramma-zamma-zamma - ZING!")]].

to:

* In the ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' episode where the Eds "break" physics, Eddy uses this to get rid of Sarah by running in place, hopping out of the "foot wheel" and sticking her into it, which forces her to run away at high speeds.



to:

* Also happens whenever there's a dash button in a 3D Mario game. If you try to dash while standing still, Mario/Luigi/whoever will run in place, and then shoot off, identical to Sonic's Super Peel-Out mentioned above.


* The "Super Peel-Out" move of SonicTheHedgehog in ''SonicCD'' is this, in video game form.
* Appears in a few cutscenes of ''SuperMarioRPG'', such as Mario's first venture into Bowser's Keep.
** Also the standard action when running from battle against minor {{Mook}}s in the later ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' and ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi'' games.
