--->'''Narrator:''' Oh, how ''long'' can trusty Cadet Stimpy hold out? How can he ''possibly'' resist the ''diabolical urge'' to push the button that could erase his very existence? Will his ''tortured mind'' give in to its ''uncontrollable desires''? Can he withstand the temptation to push the button that, ''even now'', ''beckons'' him ever closer? Will he ''succumb'' to the ''maddening'' urge to eradicate history? At the '''''mere!''''' '''''push!''''' of a '''''single!''''' '''''button!''''' The beautiful ''shiny'' button!

** In the Season 4 episode "Mrs. Puff, You're Fired!", [[CaptainObvious Mrs. Puff is fired]] and replaced by a drill sergeant. After going over the "no eating" rule, he offers bon-bons. Most of the class (including Spongebob) were quiet enough to resist, but one student eats one and is thrown through the wall.

* In one ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' cartoon, Tom corners Jerry, who writes out his last will and testament and gives it to Tom, who notices that Jerry is leaving Tom his sole earthly possession: "One custard pie? Let me have it!" [[PieInTheFace He does.]]


** Free ACME Bird Seed. OTOH, it's subverted each time since the Coyote is the schmuck, rather than the Road Runner.
*** Also, it's very likely that whenever the Road Runner sees free bird seed lying around, he knows it's another trap, but he also knows it will fail, so he enjoys his free food anyway.

* ''WesternAnimation/TangledTheSeries'': "The Way of The Willow" has Queen Arianna receive from her sister a [[Film/{{Gremlins}} Mogwai]]-like creature known as an Uumlaut; cute, cuddly yet with only one simple rule that it ''must'' have its rattle at all times. It goes just about as well as you would expect.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'': In the season 2 episode "Prime Target", [[QuintessentialBritishGentleman Lord Chumley]] places a multitude of traps in his compound to ensnare Optimus Prime. There is a weeping woman that appears to be chained to a large heavy block. He isn't fooled for a second. The two Triplechangers, Blitzwing and Astrotrain, follow, and observe the scene, with Astrotrain wondering why Optimus Prime didn't save her. Blitzwing tells the woman to stop crying and stomps at her (or the block), which immediately snares him and coats him with a green liquid that hardens into an impenetrable crystalline coating. [[note]]It's unclear whether Blitzwing was actually taken in by the trap and trying to save the woman--which is HIGHLY uncharacteristic for a Decepticon--or whether he was simply trying to stomp on the woman (which turned out to be an illusion)[[/note]].
