* The ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' episode "Scavenger Pants" has Squidward sending [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick away to find various objects [[SnipeHunt as a means of getting them out of his hair]], but each hunt backfires when they keep actually finding what he asked them to.


* ''WackyRaces'' issue #6 (Gold Key, April, 1972) had "The Scavenger Scramble," in which the racers had to gather specific items--a real-gone muffler, a drop of dirty motor oil on the driver's right palm, a strip of a worn-out tire, and a parking ticket. A big purse is up for grabs to the winner, and [[TeamRocketWins Dick Dastardly wins it]]. He wins a large, flowery woman's purse. (Penelope Pitstop was first at the finish line but she lost because for a "real gone muffler," she had a psychedelic scarf instead of a beat-up exhaust pipe.)
