* In ''The Unadulterated Cat'', Creator/TerryPratchett describes various games cats play to amuse themselves. One of them is Wet Cement. The basic play is simple; run through some wet cement. Scoring maximum points, however, requires careful judgement and timing, to hit the cement when it's still wet enough to leave clear paw-prints, but hard enough that flattening it out again is going to be a tough job.

* A famous gag in ''Film/GentlemenOfFortune''. The fake breakout involves the characters getting into an empty tanker. They get the wrong car by mistake, so not only are they away from the planned hiding spot, they also need new clothes thanks to this trope.

* A RunningGag in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' episode, "Spike's Babies" has the characters from the show run through the wet cement of the pathway to Stu's barbecue grill, forcing him to smooth it out every time. This prompts Stu to put up a rope fence, which the babies are able to crawl under. Towards the end of the episode, after Stu falls into the cement, he gives up and decides to let everyone leave their handprints into the cement.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' episode "Stop, Look Ed", Eddy shows his contempt and disregard for rules by casually walking into wet cement despite the caution signs (and Edd) telling him not to. As he gives his sermon on "rules being meant to be broken" to the other kids, Eddy walks out of the cement, his feet encased on two rectangular cubes of solid concrete.
