* Inverted in ''Film/TheDarwinAwards''. An insurance investigator insists on using liquid soap in the shower specifically to avoid this trope, and even constructs a bizarre apparatus to prevent himself from falling down in the bathroom (where most home accidents happen). Of course, the apparatus winds up presenting problems of its own.



* In ''Film/JosieAndThePussycats'', Melody keeps dropping the soap in the shower. Of course, this has less to do with its slipperiness than it does with Melody's [[TheDitz stupidity]].
* ''Film/MidnightCowboy'' opens with Joe dropping a bar of soap while showering.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'', Fred is showering, and calls to Wilma, asking her where the soap is. She tells him it's probably where he left it - on the floor. Too late - by the time she's said that, he's slipped on it. Fred sarcastically responds, "Don't worry, I found it!"

* ''WesternAnimation/BluesClues'' has Slippery Soap ([[MeaningfulName yes, that's his name]]), the resident klutz of the Blue's Clues House. As his name suggests, he is a talking bar of soap. He's very clumsy and slips around a lot (so much that it almost ruins the gang's musical show in ''Blue's Big Musical Movie'').
