- SpongeBob SquarePants (Heard once in "Wormy" & "Squid's Day Off" from a passing fire truck, and from an ambulance at the end of "Just One Bite." Also heard in connotation to fire--and thus fire trucks--in "Funny Pants" and "Squilliam Returns".)
- The Fairly OddParents (heard once from the firemen somehow in "The Land Before Timmy")
