Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })This trope summarizes all the wacky hijinks that can commonly occur at a sitcom funeral. It's the comedic flipside of the serious Due to the Dead.
The protagonist will see something in the casket that belongs to them, and must retrieve it without being noticed by the mourners or violating the corpse. This many times will result in the person's watch, bracelet, or cuff link getting snagged on something in the casket (going as far as on the zipper of the deceased).
Or, he is asked to deliver the eulogy, and struggles because he either barely knew the deceased or hated them intensely.
If the deceased is cremated, dust to dust, Ashes to Crashes. The ashes are just waiting to be spilled, worn, consumed, or disrespected in some way. If it's a particularly black comedy, expect the coffin to be knocked over at some point, and for extra Black Comedy points, the corpse to be abused in some fashion.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Then of course there's always the "missing corpse/casket" situation, which often has the guest of honor rolling out of control down a street, dodging cars, fruit carts, sheets of glass, and other obstacles. And then there's the instance where a main character is declared "dead" to protect him from a bloodthirsty revenge-seeker, with matters sometimes becoming complicated when the villain discovers that his supposedly dead enemy is still very much alive.
Expect plenty of Black Comedy to be involved.
Or maybe the characters will play an Of Corpse He's Alive. This is the generally the opposite of the heartwrenching Meaningful Funeral, but there can be some overlap. Compare And There Was Much Rejoicing, Last Disrespects, or Speak Ill of the Dead, where the non-dead characters may indulge in this.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Or, finally, the heartwarming version that we get a bit in real life. The deceased was a comic and would abhor the idea of people wasting a day and a gathering moping about their passing. The funeral is full of good spirits as everyone shares their fondest memories of the passed and honours their memory with a smile. For funerals like this, see Cheerful Funeral.

Happy Days: The fifth-season, two-part episode "Fonzie's Funeral" had the Cunninghams stage a fake funeral for Fonzie to put him into protection from a mob whose leader, The Candyman, is wanted for robbery, money laundering, extortion, and counterfeiting (after Fonzie had gone to the police with $100 bills found in a hearse he was repairing). At Fonzie's "funeral" visitation, series' regulars and memorable guests saying their "farewells," and "Fonzie's mother" (Fonzie in drag) comforts the survivors. (The "funeral" allows the Cunninghams time to hatch a plan to catch The Candyman and his goons.)

The western spoof Support Your Local Sheriff begins with a group of pioneers burying a man (possibly) named Millard Frymore who joined their traveling party for two days before dropping dead of some unknown disease. The only music is supplied by a grizzled coot playing an accordion, some stray dogs cheerfully trample through the scene, and then someone notices gold in Millard's grave, leading to an all-out brawl. At least the poor guy got the eventual gold mine named after him.

Subverted in a similar rumored incident in Star Trek Online. Following the death of Leonard Nimoy, STO devs set up a memorial on the Vulcan Map (still there) and players held vigil there. One of the troll fleets showed up and began spamming the local chat and deployed several items that would break emotes or create lag for less dedicated computers when enmass. Unfortunately, their timing was off as the game developers (who had been accused of ignoring player complaints about such actions) were showing executives at CBS the fan outpouring on line. While the devs maintained to players that the above antics were legitimate game play, the devs recognized it for what it was and promptly tolled the devs, who cracked down on such fleets.

Ponce's funeral in his premiere episode of Clone High is played entirely for laughs, with his best friend JFK picking him up out of the coffin and punching him because he insists he's not really dead, and then jumping into the coffin next to him and closing the lid (only to pop out seconds later and state "I was in a coffin with a dead guy!" and run off screaming).

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air did something right with this one; Will's yelling at his uncle's Jerkass political rival leads him to have a heart attack. When his funeral comes around, all the mourners turn out to hate him (for very good reasons, mind you: for example, one of them was a Mexican gardener whom the rival hired to tend his garden and when it was time to pay, called Immigration) and most of them have showed up to make sure he is actually dead. Will — wracked by guilt — yells at them all for it, saying they should respect the dead, but when they ask who he is, he answers "I'm the dude that killed him" and receives rapturous applause. "Tough room."

In one issue of X-Men, Mystique has to scatter the ashes of Destiny, her friend and implied romantic partner. While most of the issue is emotional and introspective, at the end, Mystique declares that Destiny and her powers of future sight will finally be out of her hair forever, and tosses the ashes off a ship at the time/place specified in Destiny's will — at which point, the wind picks up and blows them right back into her face. She collapses in helpless laughter and starts singing "Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da". Oddly enough, given the actual tenor of their relationship, it's heartwarming in context. In one of the recollections in that story, before the ash-in-face scene, Mystique remembers Destiny saying, "I'll make you laugh even if it's the last thing I do."

In Coupling, the gang spend most of Jane's aunt's funeral reception desperately trying to stay clear of the Giggle Loop. This is Jeff's name for the situation in which someone trying not to laugh at an inappropriate moment finds the situation of trying not to laugh funny, so setting off said feedback loop. The concept is illustrated throughout by an increasingly precarious stack of pint glasses.
Additionally, while Jeff, Steve, and Patrick are all about to choke on their laughter, it was Jane who was the first to breaknote This was unexpected, since only the boys had discussed the Giggle Loop.

Blues Brothers 2000 involved Elwood trying to put the band back together, and finding Alan "Mr. Fabulous" Rubin working as an undertaker. Elwood and Mack prompt a chase through a graveyard as they disrupt a Russian Mafia funeral as part of their blackmailing Mr. Fabulous into rejoining the band. The graveyard is destroyed by the ensuing gunfire, when everyone at the funeral whips out AK-47s.
And by 'disrupt', they mean 'talk loud how they're going to rob the valuables off the corpse and sell his penis to med school as soon as the burial is over'.

In BoJack Horseman, some of the highlights of Herb's funeral include:
The actual way he died: Not from cancer, but from a car accident right after his cancer went into remission. He was tweeting while driving (about how good it is to be cancer free) and he slammed into a truck. It was not the crash that killed him, mind you, but the fact that the truck was full of peanuts and he was deadly allergic.
The stars of the show he wrote ditching the wake to go on a convoluted treasure hunt... Which suddenly turns into the investigation of a murder. Although it turns out the murder part was just a huge misunderstanding.
A whole bunch of people just coming in to mooch up to celebrities and network shamelessly. But when Herb's beloved friend, Henry Winkler (who never misses an opportunity to mention his most beloved role on tv... That one episode of Law & Order) expresses disgust at this, Princess Carolyn, who never actually knew Herb, goes on to make up all sorts of over the top stories about her doing charity work with him well into the night.
The great reveal: Herb's gold was actually the manuscript for his novel, which he hopes will become his legacy after he dies. It's terrible, and what looked like an odd mix of murder and plagiarism was actually a perfectly well intentioned attempt to stop the manuscript from being published and humiliating Herb.
And the fun does not stop there!
After Princess Carolyn convinces everyone she was very close to Herb, she gets to keep his urn with his ashes (which has the same plaid pattern he had on his shirt). The urn shows up again several times throughout the series... And most of those times, it falls and breaks.
Eventually, BoJack has an orphanage named after him... but he sends them an email with a typo and the orphanage is named... "Jerb Kazzaz Orpahange". Todd points out that Herb would have found it hilarious that BoJack could not even get that right.

Bones:
"The Double Death of the Dearly Departed" involved Brennan stealing the body, Booth handcuffing the mortician to the coffin, Hodgins watching Brennan and Booth carrying (and dropping) the body whilst giving a speech to guests who are oblivious to everything happening outside, Cam placing her sunglasses on the corpse, and culminated in tricking the murderer into confessing.
And Booth singing! (It's epic and really weird. But... Mostly Epic.)
A somewhat more subdued funeral for Vincent Nigel-Murray in "Hole In the Heart" had Brennan lead the rest of the team in singing the deceased's favorite song, "The Lime in the Coconut". The same thing (and song) happens for Dr. Lance Sweets when they’re scattering his ashes as that was also his favorite song.

In House, the titular character is forcibly taken to his father's funeral, and has to deliver the eulogy. (He hated his father and didn't want to go.) He uses this as a chance to get a piece of his father's skin to subject to a DNA test, which confirms his long-standing suspicion that the man was not his biological father. He also comments on his father's weak qualities in the eulogy, and says that 'if he was a better father, maybe I'd have been a better son'.
By the end of the speech, though, it's touched on touching. House says, essentially, that the person he is — good and bad — is because of his father.
Wilson also ups the wackiness factor by breaking a stained glass window at the funeral home, goaded by House, of course.
And in the series finale, at House's own funeral, most of the mourners stand up and say something nice about House. Wilson tries, but eventually breaks down and admits that House was an ass, and his death proves it: he selfishly died in a narcotics-induced haze, leaving everyone else to pick up the pieces. At this point a cell phone starts ringing, and Wilson goes on a tirade about that ... before discovering it's his cell phone, with a text message "SHUT UP YOU IDIOT". It's from House, who actually isn't dead.

In the L.A. Law episode "Izzy Ackerman or Is He Not," a pallbearer at the titular character's funeral can't handle the casket, and it falls. The body tumbles out, and the videotape of the proceedings reveals that the body isn't Izzy's — turns out the funeral home accidentally switched bodies, and sent Izzy off to be dissected. Leland manages to get the pieces of Izzy's body back from the various medical schools and research labs to which they were sent. It culminates in Izzy's head being shipped from a Florida med school and delivered to McKenzie-Brackman's offices. Two of Izzy's friends peer into the foam cooler to verify that the head is indeed Izzy's, resulting in this exchange:

Titus:
There's a Christmas episode of all things that dealt with this. Titus goes to the funeral of an ex-girlfriend — not because he loved her and wanted to say goodbye, but to make sure the funeral wasn't an elaborate ruse for her to attack him for dumping her (As mentioned in the episode, "Dad is Dead" and on the comedy special, "Norman Rockwell is Bleeding," Titus's first girlfriend was a 5'1, 100 lb. Jewish girl who, like Titus's mom, was beautiful, sexy, very smart, and a bipolar whack job who often abused him and used sex to manipulate him).
Another Fun In Funeral moment: after Juanita's suicide, Titus and Erin visit her lawyer for a will reading. According to the will, Titus and Erin have to eat apples for dinner should Juanita die. Not too bad, but Juanita was a homicidal, manic-depressive schizophrenic with touches of paranoia and multiple personalities. The "apples" that Erin and Titus have to eat is actually the name of the dog Juanita killed back in 1978 and kept in her freezer since then.
According to the comedy special "The 5th Annual End of the World Tour," Titus had to deal with his dad's funeral, who requested that he be put in a cardboard box note  Titus ended up putting his dad in a rental casket, with his brother, Dave, asking, "Who brought it back?" and peed on by everyone he angered in his life while Willie Nelson's "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" played. After the ceremony, Ken's body was to be cremated and Titus had to find a douche bottle and a hooker so Ken can be "run through one more time." Titus couldn't go through with that plan, so he spread his father's ashes all over some Victoria's Secret dressing rooms and at a Caesar's Palace casino in Lake Tahoe, Nevada while singing "Amazing Grace" with his brother, Dave, and his sister, Shannon.

The Simpsons: Several:
The most famous instance is "Homer's Enemy" which centered on the conflict between Homer and a new co-worker, Frank Grimes (a hard-working professional whose ethics conflict with Homer's gross inepitude and poor social graces). Eventually, Frank is killed after touching live electrical wires, and at the funeral, Homer falls asleep and mutters "Marge, change the channel!" The other funeral-goers and even Rev. Lovejoy to burst out laughing, and inspires Lenny to remark "That's our Homer!" The tombstone simply has "Grimey" written on it, Homer's nickname for Grimes which he himself despised; Lovejoy also referred to Grimes as "Grimey," as though he accepted the name with affection.
In a later episode, Homer is getting dressed for his wedding anniversary when he pulls out the program for Grimes' funeral ... and realizes he has completely forgotten who this guy is.
Maude's funeral in "Alone Again, Natura-Diddily" had a 21 T-shirt Salute, rather tasteless given that Maude was killed by a t-shirt shot at her with one of their bazookas. Also, a later episode reveals that, off-screen, Homer fell in Maude's grave. "I saw a gopher! What a day!"
After Krusty the Clown fakes his death in "Bart the Fink", the town turns out for his funeral, at which Bob Newhart is conscripted to provide the eulogy.
And there's always Homer's mom, who asked that her ashes be thrown away at a certain point at a certain time. Of course, this was really part of her plan to stop Mr Burns from polluting the Amazon.
The season four episode "Selma's Choice" (the one where Marge's Great-Aunt Gladys dies and Selma continues trying to have a baby before she hits menopause [which actually happened in a later episode]) actually had a funeral home sign that reads, "The Lucky Stiff Funeral Home — We Put the 'Fun' in Funeral". Bart also scares Lisa into thinking the corpse is still talking.
In one of the earliest episodes, "Bart the General", Bart — fearing a run-in with the feared bully, Nelson Muntz — imagines his funeral. As the parade of mourners pass by, Nelson spots the cupcake that Lisa had just left on her brother's forehead, cheerfully remarks, "Hey, they've got food at this thing!" before grabbing it for himself, and then declares "Here's one for the road, dude!" before starting to thuggishly punch Bart's corpse.
During The Tracey Ullman Show "shorts" era, there was "The Funeral," where Bart is (well) himself at his elderly Uncle Hubert's funeral. (Presumably this is Abe's brother or cousin.) First, Bart clenches his hands in sadistic anticipation of viewing Hubert's corpse at the visitation, only to collapse when he actually sees Hubert's body. Later, he helps "direct" the pallbearers to the gravesite, in preparation for the casket being lowered into the ground; a disgusted Homer grabs Bart before he can pull any other hijinks.
At Bleeding Gums Murphy's funeral in "'Round Springfield", Reverend Lovejoy refers to him as "Blood and Guts Murphy", mistakenly calls him a sousaphone player in the eulogy, and Homer uses the event to look for a hot dog vendor (who follows him everywhere, because Homer is apparently putting his kids through college). On a much sadder note, Lisa was the only mourner present (not counting her parents).
"The Wizard of Evergreen Terrace", Homer had an Imagine Spot about what his own funeral would be like if his life didn't amount to anything. While his friends are all successes (Lenny is President of the United States, Barney has multiple Oscars and Flanders is a Cardinal), his own body is placed in the back of a dump truck then thrown into the ground haphazardly. If that wasn't the worst part, his own family weren't in attendance, they were among the only mourners there, along with the robot from "Lost in Space" and Heckle and Jeckle, his feet are left sticking out of his grave, the two birds mock him, calling him a sack of crap and then two dogs come by and start biting his feet.

When the Dude and Walter go to scatter Donny's ashes in the ocean in The Big Lebowski, after a fairly-touching - although full of unnecessary references to The Vietnam War - speech from Walter, he scatters the ashes, but the wind is blowing the wrong way, and the Dude ends up covered. Also a subversion, in that immediately after the humorous moment the Dude explodes with rage, calls Walter out for turning the occasion into "a fuckin' travesty" and breaks down, thus turning a slapstick moment into a Tear Jerker almost instantly.

Following Oliver's death in Season 1 of Slings & Arrows, Geoffrey goes to view his body. As he lays his copy of Hamlet in the casket, Oliver opens his eyes and starts lecturing Geoffrey, who hisses "Shut up!" at him when someone else approaches. Later, at the memorial service, all goes well with people telling amusing stories about Oliver - until Geoffrey gets on. His initially touching speech eventually devolves into a rant about the New Burbage theatre festival. The memorial service ends when a fire-and-brimstone preacher delivers a sermon about how the theatre is Satan's trap for the unwary and gay people (like Oliver) are going to hell, at which point Anna pulls the fire alarm.

In Peter Jackson's Braindead, Lionel's mother has been turned into a zombie, forcing him to sneak into the back during the funeral and pump her full of tranquilizers. He succeeds just as they both crash through the door into the service, forcing him to pass it off as a deranged act of grief.

Mama's Family had several examples.
At Aunt Fran's funeral at the beginning of Season 3, Vint slams the hearse door, causing the casket to slide out and roll down the interstate on-ramp, while Bubba eats all the food at the wake, thinking it was a coming-home party for him.
In another episode, the family goes to Uncle Oscar's funeral and scatters his ashes on a lake, only to have a water-skier slalom through them.
In yet another, Mama has a dream about her own funeral, where everyone gets bored and decides to leave to go bowling instead.

In the filler "Laughing Shino" arc of Naruto, the title character accompanies Shino to act as the representative for a man whose father has just died. If he / his representative laughs at the funeral, he loses his inheritance, and he knows his relatives will do everything in their power to make ū happen. Shino is the obvious choice for a stand-in, but he's poisoned by a drug that causes him to laugh uncontrollably en route. Naruto has to take his place, and has a much harder time trying to ignore the antics of everyone else at the funeral. However, it's later revealed that the father was still alive and the entire situation was an elaborate ruse; when his children were children, they were a pretty poor family, but were happy and laughed. However, when they discovered the valuable medical properties of the herbs around, they got greedy and forgot what was important, leading him to do this. Shino ends up pointing out the flukes in his plan before helping him pull it off.

The Dukes of Hazzard: During the Coy and Vance era, there was "Ding Dong, the Boss is Dead," where the Dukes orchestrate a fake funeral for Boss Hogg when they learn a paroled mobster, sent to prison on Boss' testimony, is out for murderous revenge. Things become complicated when the mobster — who had continually called Boss to remind him he was coming for him — shows up at Boss' wake to "pay his last respects."

There's food getting sent over by Bob Benson in an attempt to impress Roger, Don getting so drunk off his ass that he vomits the moment a touching speech given by one of Roger's mother's friends ends, forcing Pete, Harry, and Ken to get him out, all culminating in Roger kicking everbody out when Mona brings in her new husband to pay respects.

My Hero had an episode where Thermoman's Bizarre Alien Biology acting up led to his secret identity, George Sunday, being thought dead by everyone. The idea was that he'd sit up in the coffin during the ceremony before his cremation and make Dr. Piers Crispin look like an idiot (which isn't particularly difficult). Two things combined to put it under this trope: a sudden attack of that same BAB problem that caused all this in the first place, and a B-plot featuring Mrs. Raven fusing therapeutic and stage hypnosis. Hilarity Ensues:

Community had the episode "G.I. Jeff", where Jeff has a fever dream where he and the Study Group are a part of G.I. Joe. Jeff, as Wingman, in his attempt to stop Destro from escaping, shoots at Destro's parachute, destroying it and sending Destro to his death. At Destro's funeral, naturally as a deconstruction of the cartoon, things go off the rails with Cobra Commander trying to deliver a eulogy, before devolving into the Commander lamenting he's never had to do it before and ranting about the death after years of A-Team Firing, getting interrupted by Vice Cobra Assistant Commander (Dean Pelton dressed as a version of Cobra Commander) calling, a now pissed-off Commander admitting to loving Destro, and Zartan muttering "Called it!" under his breath after said admission.

On your first visit to the Athkatla Graveyard in Baldur's Gate II, you'll encounter a panicked man called Nevin, who explains how his hated, tyrannical, stingy uncle Lester has just risen from his new grave as a zombie, killed every funeral-goer who couldn't escape, and is now after him. Lester promptly lurches onto the scene and angrily explains he rose from the dead through sheer indignation at the funeral he got: Nevin had a closed-casket ceremony to cover for the fact he'd buried Lester naked after pawning all of his uncle's clothes, bribed a drunken Talosian cleric with a few coppers to slur some drunken profanity over the casket in lieu of a eulogy, and the flowers laid out on the casket were freshly picked by Nevin from the local swamp that morning. Nevin angrily spits back that he had little choice, given that Lester's will had given all of his money and everything else of value that he had to Lester's favorite Calimshite whore. The player can either intervene, cutting the zombie down whereupon his nephew curses the fact he's going to have to rebury the mangled corpse, or just leave them be, whereupon Lester will kill Nevin and then shamble off in search of his mistress for "one last quickie".note Most players will side with Nevin, simply out of pragmatism if nothing else — killing Lester gives the party 7500 experience points and a random gemstone on his corpse, whilst letting him kill Nevin gives them nothing but the single gold piece they can loot from Nevin's body.

Scrubs has J.D. attending the funeral of one of his patients and ending up having sex with the widow, prompting him to quip "there's a lot of ways to grieve, but last time I checked, wheelbarrow style wasn't one". In another episode, Turk attends the funeral of one of the patients, but forgets the man's name(his wife tries to jog his memory by moving her head like a Bobblehead, but he doesn't get it) and accidentally mentions how bored he is too loudly. Another occasion has J.D imagine his own funeral during the funeral of a co-worker, in which he has had the choir singing "Party All The Time" and himself positioned upright in his own coffin with his arms wide open; his last request being a final hug from his own co-workers. Upon receiving a hug from Dr. Cox, he reveals that he has in fact faked his own death solely to receive a hug from Cox. Cox ends up breaking his neck and actually killing him. "Then we'd have my real funeral."
Dr. Murphy, already the cause of many death-related jokes, also appears as "the guy that is completely inappropriate" by telling the co-workers uncle that he did her autopsy. Later on, he wonders if he left his cellphone inside her.
During the same episode, J.D. is singing "It's A Beautiful Morning" before Carla reminds him where they are.

In Revenge of the Pink Panther, most of the world believes that Chief Inspector Clouseau has been killed, including his old supervisor Dreyfus, who had been committed to an asylum because of his murderous hatred for Clouseau. He recovers his sanity and his position upon Clouseau's death, and is asked to eulogize him, to which he ineffectively protests. Dreyfus, holding back his tears, delivers a moving performance — struggling to suppress his laughter. Clouseau sneaks into the burial in disguise and reveals his face to Dreyfus, who falls stunned into the grave.

In Red vs. Blue, command sends Sister as a new recruit because Red Team's commander (actually Blue Team's commander; Sister is colorblind)) supposedly died. Sarge refuses to believe that command could be mistaken, so he has the rest of his team give him a funeral. Grif turns his eulogy into a stand-up routine, Sister just insults Sarge because "old people are gross", and Simmons briefly talks about how Sarge was a great leader before trying to steal his job.
There was also the Blue Team funeral for Church and Tex, made more awkward because Church was standing right there with them, and Tucker refuses to do the eulogy.
While hunting for O'Malley in Season 3, Sarge and Caboose come across a dead Blue. Sarge is happy about this, but decides that he should at least give some respect to the dead:
In Season 17, after Agent Washington becoming mentally unstable due to a Reality-Breaking Paradox and filthy rich because Dr. Grey used that to perform some Insurance Fraud, Grey gave him this gem of an idea:

In an episode of Homicide: Life on the Street, Munch organises and attends the funeral of his ex-wife's much-hated mother, a literary critic. The only people who attend are Munch, his ex-wife, a shill who has been paid to sit in the front row and wail at the top of her lungs and the author Peter Maas, who has only turned up to make sure that she's dead owing to a bad review she gave of one of his works. Munch later ends up giving her a flattering, if tactfully-phrased, eulogy in front of his co-workers at a Christmas party later in the episode.

Murphy Brown:
In one episode, Murphy must eulogize a rival with whom she exchanged pranks.
In another episode, she's asked to eulogize a crew member who apparently adored her, but whom she can't remember a thing about. (The crew member is later proven to be fictitious; the other characters were trying to make a point about her treating the crew as if they were invisible.)
In a third episode, she and Frank are flying somewhere when the aircraft almost crashes; they pass out (due to oxygen deprivation?) and dream of their own funerals. Murphy receives an awful eulogy and Frank's ashes are spilled and swept under a carpet.
"Now look at me. Dead! In a dickie!"

In The Rocky Horror Picture Show , Brad sings Dammit Janet in a church, while not noticing a child size coffin being carried out in the background. In the remake, he and Janet dance over various graves, completely oblivious to the funeral procession in the background.

In Homestuck, Aradia is eager to try a human "corpse party," since trolls don't have funerals and since she doesn't know that they're supposed to be somber affairs.
After finding the dead body of Jade's dreamself, Grandpa Harley is seen mourning, with Jade preserved and stuffed in a silly pose in the background.
Roxy held a funeral for Rose, all by herself. It was actually a rather sombre and serious event, until Jaspersprite dug up the body and turned it into another sprite not long afterwards.

In Carole & Tuesday, one of Carole's part-time jobs involves fake-crying at a dead guy's funeral to give the impression there are plenty of people missing him. This being Carole, she sees a butterfly land on the priest's head and bursts out laughing like a madwoman.

Family Ties: The third season episode "Auntie Up" features Mallory's favorite aunt, Trudy Harris, dying of a heart attack in the living room. Mallory is deeply saddened, but the family is preoccupied with a garage sale at the house (for Alex's fraternity); a wake is held at the Keatons on the same day as the garage sale, and naturally hilarity ensues. Eventually, everyone is able to take Mallory seriously when she speaks up at the funeral and delivers an emotional eulogy.

In Suburban Knights, Ma-Ti's funeral alternates between serious and funny (on his overall heartwarming eulogy, The Nostalgia Critic has to explain why he was cremated - You Don't Want to Know how - and put in a can of Quaker Oats, and describes him as the most "hearty" person he's ever met; the "show your arms" by the That Guy with the Glasses crew has The Nostalgia Chick pulling her wig instead of a weapon; Paw Dugan plays Amazing Freaking Grace on a kazoo - which still sounds like a bagpipe orchestra!)

On 3rd Rock from the Sun Dick is asked to eulogize a hated professor. Oddly enough, because Dr. Hamlin knew everyone hated him, he asked Dick because he was the only one who would say it to his face. He didn't want a eulogy that wasn't about him. Inverted somewhat in that Dick's eulogy is actually very moving to the audience because he simply relates the bare facts.
While the humans present were astonished at Dick's beautiful prose, his fellow aliens mocked the triteness, asking why he didn't just phone it in.

In the DuckTales (2017) episode "The 87 Cent Solution!", Scrooge's (fake) funeral is an appropriately somber affair...until Glomgold crashes the event wearing a white sequined suit with dollar-sign-shaped shades, blasting DJ Khaled's "All I Do Is Win", throwing money around like he's at a strip club, and twerking at the corpse. He then attempts to climb on to Scrooge's casket to dance on it, but is stopped by his thoroughly-embarrased assistant.

My Name Is Earl,:
In an episode Earl tries to make up for accidentally kidnapping a guy. Problem is, the guy is dead (as a result of a mishap involving a Murphy Bed.) Earl decides to throw a funeral for him. Which is a noble thing to do, except he didn't really know the guy, and the deceased doesn't seem to have any friends or family. Earl invites all of Camden, who treat it as a party and not a funeral. (And Darnell is less than pleased to find that his favorite purple tux has been placed on the deceased.) It turns out that Josh did have friends, but they were all online. And they help Earl throw a proper funeral.
Another episode involved Earl's ex-girlfriend Faking the Dead to get back at Earl for doing likewise to her.

The WWE feud between Big Show and the Big Bossman may just take the cake for this one. Boss Man interrupted Big Show's father's (outdoor) funeral by driving up in a former police car with a loudspeaker mounted on the top and cracking cruel jokes about Show and his father over the speaker. Then, he chained Show's dad's coffin to his back bumper and dragged it off while Show desperately held onto the coffin (in what's often called "the coffin surfing incident" by fans). This was part of a longer feud, that also involved a "sympathy" poem by Boss Man that included the lines, "But if I had a son who was as stupid as you/I'd wish for cancer, so I could die too."
Said poem was followed by the beautiful sentiment "That's exactly how I feel about the Big Show's daddy being dead". The poem, coffin surfing and a summary of the whole feud can be seen here The poem is between 1:28 and 2:10. The funeral starts at 2:28.
The police vehicle driven by Big Bossman in the funeral scenes is a replica of the Bluesmobile from The Blues Brothers.
McMahon's justification for this angle was that Big Show's father in real life had actually been dead for nearly a decade before this angle.
The ridiculousness of the angle was later lampshaded with Big Boss Man, in a stable including Kurt Angle, retells the story. note (Indeed, in real life, anyone who crashes a funeral and engages in the behavior the Big Bossman did would likely be facing an extended jail sentence, heavy fines and other social consequences.)

In Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, at least once per book on average, Stephanie's Grandma Mazur wreaks havoc at the local funeral home (she gets quite aggravated by closed caskets, and finds ways to get that lid open). In several instances, either Stephanie or Grandma obtains important information as a result of the funeral home hijinks. They've also burned the place down on one memorable occasion (sort-of accident: Grandma was trying to shoot the baddies, who were planning to kill her and Stephanie. Grandma was apparently not aware those crates stacked against the wall contained ammunition, explosives, etc.).

In another issue is a piece entitled "What NOT to Do at a Funeral." Samples include: "DON'T try to amuse the guests with a hand puppet of the deceased," and "If you work at Disneyland, DON'T go to the funeral directly from work," with a panel drawn by Paul Coker showing a man in a Goofy costume sitting in the front row of the viewing.

Schitt's Creek:
The first season episode "Carl's Funeral" in which Johnny Rose is invited to give the eulogy for a townie he did not know. This leads to a comic monologue by Eugene Levy that devolves into Johnny melting down and describing what a hell the Roses's lives have become since moving to the town. Moira, who had told Johnny about a similar experience she had had at the funeral of a former co-worker and how she had sung her way out of it, breaks into "Danny Boy" to save Johnny.
In the sixth season, Johnny, Roland and Stevie think they are going to view a motel they are interested in purchasing but arrive at the former owner's open casket funeral. Initially, Roland starts lying to save face, but Johnny shows Character Development by telling the truth to the owner's widow and apologizing. Turns out she and her husband knew Stevie's aunt and she invites them in to pay their respects.

The Venture Bros.:
In "Past Tense", the Ventures crash their jet into a cemetery where a funeral is taking place, piercing the casket and dismembering the deceased. This is followed by plenty of humorous banter in the midst of the other funeral they're attending.
In "Bot Seeks Bot", villains attend the funeral of Boggles The Clue Clown, an Expy of The Riddler. He left one final riddle for his nemesis Captain Sunshine, about a "type of jack". When Sunshine can't unravel it, the answer is given by The Clue Clown's spring-loaded corpse erupting from the casket, with "a jack in the box" scrawled on a note pinned to his chest.

Something*Positive:
An early strip shows Davan attending the funeral of his childhood friend, Scotty, who committed suicide. His grief quickly takes the form of rage towards Scotty, which he then takes out on the corpse. Literally, taking the corpse out of the coffin to shake it and yell at it. In the background, J. Grant, making a cameo, urges Davan to "let the legions of the dead know we living will no longer be oppressed by their cold clutches."
Another one features Davan laying out his plans for his own funeral, where he will be dressed in a smoking jacket and propped up in a chair so that people can have their photos taken with him. There will be attractive cocktail waitresses (to make sure Jason attends) and marshmallow roasting on his pyre, after which Aubrey will be given his skull to mount on her wall.
Yet another includes Faye referencing this trope in regards to Davan's paternal great-grandfather.
Another strip had Peejee sending a wreath to the funeral of a female supervisor who'd spent the last few weeks sexually harassing her (and was threatening to sue her when she was killed by a Canadian Trapdoor Alligator). Unfortunately, the floral service screws up the order... and a giant "You'll Always Be My Valentine!" wreath shows up instead.
Another reveals that when Aubrey and Peejee were passed out from alcohol, Jhim stripped them naked, posed them together in Davan's bed, and took pictures, which he then arranged to have on display at the reading of his will.
After the passing of the well-despised Avagadro Pompey, one of the many enemies he left behind hopes that his funeral ends up a "miserable little circus". Cue Kharisma walking by in her funeral dress made of measuring tape, as Davan comments that a good circus needs a clown. Sanderson also managed to leave a final gift behind in the casket.

2point4 Children had Ben struggling to organise the funeral of his Sitcom Arch-Nemesis, Jake the Klingon. Under the terms of Jake's will, the funeral was a Star Trek costume event (Original Series only, much to Bill's annoyance: "There weren't any women in the original series!") It turns out Jake isn't dead, he set the whole thing up to humiliate Ben.

The last issue of New Avengers (2015) opens with the team holding a funeral for Sunspot. The only person who really takes it seriously is Songbird (who’s eulogy quickly turns melodramatic), with most of the other guests cracking jokes or engaging in Seinfeldian Conversation. The only attendees are the team themselves (not even all of them), the New Mutants, some AIM mooks, and an alcohol-serving robot butler. It’s also fake, and part of a sting operation to bust the Scientist Supreme. Sunspot busts out of his coffin to beat up the bad guy in question.

Seinfeld:
George has to get a copy of his girlfriend's father's death certificate to qualify for an airline fare discount. He fails to acquire this and tries to substitute a picture of him with the coffin, to no avail.
There's also "The Susie". The concept of having a funeral for a fictional person is funny enough, but made even more funny by the fact that J. Peterman somehow has the idea that he slept with Susie on the job and bring it up during the eulogy, AND that minor character Mike Moffit bursts into the funeral to say Susie didn't commit suicide, but was murdered by Jerry Seinfeld (long story).

In Gintama, episode 231 has Gintoki and company attending a funeral for the owner of a restaurant they were regulars at, which the foreword states will be a solemn, dignified affair. It goes well up until Kagura gets involved, then takes a nosedive from there after she completely messes up at paying her respects properly, which provokes the owner's ghost into trying to ensure the processions go smoothly by force. It ends up having the opposite effect due to how horrified Gintoki and Hijikata are of him (Made worse by the fact that only they can see him), which leads to them making even more mistakes, wrecking his coffin and launching his corpse into a delivery truck among other things.
Part of a later story arc has everyone attending a funeral for a not-quite dead Kagura, which after a series of mishaps, leads to them all thinking that the proper way to pay their respects is to crush the coffin with a giant boulder...

The entirety of the film Death at a Funeral. As the name would imply. Hijinks include: Alan Tudyk's character gets high on acid because he and his girlfriend thought it was Valium and eventually ends up wandering around naked on the roof, Peter Dinklage's character crashes the funeral to blackmail the family because he was the closeted patriarch's lover (and characters freak out over the pictures), and a crabby, handicapped old man curses at every chance he gets. And then said old man shits on his bathroom assistant's hand when he sits on it. And he meant to do it.

During The Tracey Ullman Show "shorts" era, there was "The Funeral," where Bart is (well) himself at his elderly Uncle Hubert's funeral. (Presumably this is Abe's brother or cousin.) First, Bart clenches his hands in sadistic anticipation of viewing Hubert's corpse at the visitation, only to collapse when he actually sees Hubert's body. Later, he helps "direct" the pallbearers to the gravesite, in preparation for the casket being lowered into the ground; a disgusted Homer grabs Bart before he can pull any other hijinks.

In Life in Pieces, John decides that having a funeral themed party for his 70th birthday party would be fun way to hear the sort of things his family and friends would say at his actual funeral. Greg rips of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Heather's family sings, Matt stumbles through a speech before being kicked offstage by John, and Joan breaks down and angrily berates her husband for being so heartless.

Saved by the Bell: The College Years had a professor die and at the funeral Dean McMahon accidentally drops her phone into the casket and her arm gets stuck in it just when she's forced to give a eulogy.
Zack actually interrupts the funeral - telling everyone that the professor wouldn't have wanted them to sit around and be sad, but instead to live life to the fullest. He even suggests they all go outside and play a game. After Zack promises to honor his professor by enjoying life before rushing off, McMahon criticizes his lack of respect... just as her phone - still in the casket - rings.

The cast of Lexx spends an episode hiding from authorities in an Ohio funeral parlor. The director has them attend to a grieving family — unwisely, for as Xev puts it, "we're from a parallel universe, and people there are mostly put in the protein bank and fed to a giant insect."

My Girl uses this in a Crosses the Line Twice sort of way. The protagonists live in a funeral home, and the elderly mother is senile and has a habit of singing to herself. On the day of a funeral in the house, Vada is supposed to be watching her but Grandma gets up and walks into the funeral - and starts singing at the top of her voice. It's Played for Laughs.

The Batman: The Animated Series episode "The Man Who Killed Batman" featured the Joker truly mourning Batman, placing a cape and cowl in a coffin, and then adding a "Kick Me" sign, causing Harley Quinn to observe "You know what's great about you, Puddin'? You really put the 'fun' in funeral." After an emotional eulogy, he sticks the low-level guy held responsible for Batsy's death in the coffin and rolls it into a pit of acid. while Harley plays "Amazing Grace" on a kazoo (one of the funniest moments of the entire series; reportedly, the kazoo solo was done all in one take, as everyone was cracking up, making it impossible to do it again). And then he wipes away a tear and then perkily discusses dinner choices.

In Trolls, there is a flashback scene of Branch ruining several parties in which he shouts about the Bergens coming and tips something over: a birthday party where he tips over a pile of presents, a wedding where he tips over a cake, and a funeral where he tips over the casket, letting the dead troll, also dressed as a clown, roll out with a squeak noise.

In Man on the Moon, after Andy Kaufman (played by Jim Carrey) found a bit of Gallows Humor in a fake treatment for his cancer, it cuts to his funeral... where he'd, apparently, requested a sing-a-long be performed by those in attendance.

Mystery Science Theater 3000:
One episode had Joel and the 'bots lying in faux-coffins, discussing their ideal funerals after watching the boring one held in The Gunslinger. Servo can't decide between something educational that explains his embalming methods, or a circus-like extravaganza ("I want elephants, Joel, lots of them"). Crow on the other hand wants a beach-themed funeral, complete with kegger, "couples sneaking off to neck, prop me up so I can surf!"
In the final episode of the revival season, for the Invention Exchange Max presents the Rip Taylor Urn Cannon, which fires ashes like confetti, designed to make funerals more interesting.

In The Boondocks episode "Wingmen", Robert Freeman is asked to read the eulogy, written by the deceased, at the funeral of a jerkass war buddy named Moe. He gets about halfway through, his voice increasingly incredulous, until he eventually gives up, speaks his mind, and finds out that nobody else really liked the guy either. In the end, though, Granddad does show some affection, displaying his inheritance on the mantel even though it was really just one last prank.

Attempted unsuccessfully in Men at Arms. The funeral of Beano the Clown involves things such as a trombonist clocking a musician in the row ahead of him during the funeral dirge, then getting punched in turn and knocked into the bass drum, starting a brawl, and Beano's ashes going down someone's pants. But since the whole thing is choreographed and performed by rote, like all other routines done by the Ankh-Morpork Guild of Fools, it's explicitly noted to not be the least bit funny to the non-clown witnesses.

On NewsRadio Dave eulogizes an obscure employee he knows nothing about. And who turns out to have been an asshole. And a Klan member. Bill McNeil's funeral episode falls under this as well, seeing as most of the episode is about Matthew talking nonsense about hidden messages about Raven's, wondering what the contents of Catherine's private message was, and general lighthearted treatment of it, save from a downer moment or two.

In the Futurama episode "A Pharaoh to Remember", the gang stages a fake funeral for Bender, who listens in from his own casket. He's at first pleased, but grows more bitter ("LOUDER and SADDER!") before he erupts in anger.
In the same episode, Bender admires an alien culture that devotes masses of slaves to things that glorify their leaders, and when his death comes around, there are some exaggerated ancient Egyptian-derived ceremonies (including a dump truck full of personal possessions from his garage), an Elton John-esque singer filking "Benny and the Jets" who is also thrown in, and, before all of that:

Jennifer is anxious to tell, but Ben angrily silences her and continues. But just as the three miners accompanying him are about to leap in, Ben winds up his eulogy quickly: "I hope you'll make him happy up there... for-ever-and-ever-I-stake-this-claim—Amen!"

When Ted discovers this, he goes into a blind panic and yells at Mrs. Doyle who really should have stopped him. Cut to the funeral, where ambulance sirens are blaring, most of the mourners are being treated at the scene, a burning hearse lies wedged in the grave and Dougal in the middle of it all going, "Sorry about that." And then the hearse explodes.

Just before she goes, she chips a tooth, goes to a slightly inattentive dentist, and enters the service doped up on laughing gas. Hilarity Ensues and the service ends with Lisa leading the guests in a round of an upbeat hymn while Ray cowers with embarrassment. (Note that this is technically not possible, as laughing gas's effect ends within minutes of ceasing intake.)

In Home Improvement, when Al's mom dies in the final season, Tim ends up delivering the eulogy, which of course means that it includes a Hurricane of Puns regarding her weight (she was Tool Time's biggest fan, etc). But the last laugh comes indirectly from Wilson, when he starts calling the list of pall bearers. It was awfully long because he'd reached about ten names and was still going at fade-out.

Six Feet Under occasionally featured realistic versions of this. The biker funeral resembled a massive party while the funeral of a gay guy featured a small opera skit complete with stage and costumes.
In addition, one of the spoof funeral supply commercials in the Pilot had the product being advertised with the song "Shake Your Booty" playing, dancers dancing and the announcer saying that it "Puts the fun, back in the funeral". The actual product appears during Nathaniel Sr.'s funeral which is anything but fun. Except for Nathaniel Sr. himself maybe.
In "A Private Life," Nate goes to pick up a body in an abandoned building, and finds a candle-lit trail of photos with captions by the psychotic Billy, culminating in a covered body and leading Nate to assume he's committed suicide. Nate pulls back the cover, whereupon Billy jumps up and yells "Gotcha!" When Nate fails to see the humour in his prank, Billy says, "If you mix up the letters in 'funeral' you get 'real fun.'"

Beer Fest begins in a dark room with a man playing a beer/coin game with a mob boss and his goons who nearly beat up the other guy...just kidding, it was the priest and his assistants. As the funeral begins a tv is wheeled out to reveal the deceased giving a heartfelt and jolly eulogy from his hospital bed looking down on his open casket. He toasts and chugs several pints of beer during his speech. Once complete, he pulls his own plug and immediately flatlines while still on the tv screen.

Benny Hill's funeral was exactly like one of the sketches from his show (with the coffin being hidden, transported to different places, used as a sled and there was even a mourner dressed in a Black Bra and Panties).
Another sketch had Diablo Cody delivering a long eulogy only for the deceased to come out of her coffin and question Diablo's presence and whether or not her mom even read the suicide note.
Yet another had Casper's cousin, Jasper the douchebag ghost, possessing the corpse at a funeral for some hijinks.
In the first DC Comics speical, Superman, Batman, and Green Lantern attend the funeral of Captain Carrot of the Zoo Crew, and Green Lantern is trying his best not to laugh when he sees that the memebers of the Zoo Crew are all cartoon animals. Batman also lets out a snicker when he finds out that one member is a mouse named Little Cheese.
The second DC Comics special sees Batman stop his eulogy for Green Arrow, much to the horror on those attending, and rant about how Death Is Cheap in the DC Universe, noting that Green Arrow will probably be back in some fashion considering everyone attending the funeral have themselves died and came back at some point. Not only do those in attendance applaud to this fact, but sure enough, one of the people attending Green Arrow's funeral is Oliver Queen himself, proving Bruce's point.

He confesses right away that he's not a "mourning person", and finds something about funerals highly amusing.

Another episode explains that Richmond was moved from his executive office to the IT department's server room during the culmination of his transformation from Yuppie to Goth, at which point he showed up at the funeral of Denholm's father wearing a creepy goth outfit (Complete with face paint), and gave Denholm's grieving mother a Cradle of Filth CD.

In The Jeffersons episode "Not So Dearly Beloved," George is railroaded into giving the eulogy for an employee he despised, and as he delivers a euphemism-laden eulogy, voiceovers reveal the attendees' thoughts, leading to a silent "roast" of sorts as everyone remembers the way the deceased screwed them over. The funeral reaches a climax as George bobbles the urn and nearly spills it all over the attendees.

This culminates in an attempt to sex up the widow upon hallucinating her scantily clad and wearing a "Pigs Welcome" sign. After he apologizes to everyone and runs off, Bernice fears there's something wrong with him, whereupon Duckman says, "Seemed perfectly normal to me."
In "Love! Anger! Kvetching!", the episode ends with the burial of Duckman's horrific uncle, featuring a balsawood coffin and a song specially composed for the occasion:

In Last Action Hero, some dead mobster's body was filled with toxic gas, to kill the mob bosses attending the funeral. Not really funny per se, but the stuff they did to prevent the hit certainly counts.
That, and the bomb is activated by pulling the dead mobster's (appropriately named Leo "the Fart") finger. And the whole assassination plot is summed up by the immortal line, "Leo the Fart is going to pass gas one last time."

Two and a Half Men:
An episode featured virtually every sitcom-funeral trope imaginable, from the hilarious, angry, and hate-filled eulogy to Jake's Gameboy getting left in the coffin to Charlie scoring with the widow.
Another had Charlie having an Imagine Spot of his funeral. It includes open bar, James Earl Jones reading his eulogy, and another (sarcastic) eulogy by Alan.
Charlie's actual funeral in the first episode of season 9. Alan's eulogy was interrupted by Charlie's ex-girlfriends insulting the deceased, and Evelyn used the occasion to remind everyone that Charlie's house is up for sale.
"I didn't come all this way to spit on a closed casket!"

In Monster Factory's Sweeps Week series, Greg Montgomery gets deleted. Dharma Finklestein plans a "memorial rager" in an empty field that reads "GREG" in the dirt, setting up a bonfire pit, grill, and hot tub, and inviting Will Smith, Geoffrey, Jazz, and Carol Seaver. The wake features people setting themselves on fire, sleeping in the deceased's coffin, and Jazz going on a camping trip with the widow, all culminating in Greg climbing out of his coffin, the field now reading "GREG RULES".

Men in Black 3 had the funeral of Agent Zed. The first part had K talk about not sharing a detail about his boss's life, which was around 3 sentences(and hyped to be a hell of a speech). The next speech was from Agent O (the new chief of MIB) telling what an alien said, in her native language. She spoke gibberish.

Vinesauce: Joel holds a "funeral" for his bootlegged, red, PlayStation 2 controller. Yes, seriously. He writes the "engraving" in Comic Sans, sings a very funny parody of "My Heart Will Go On" using a crappy MIDI as background music, makes a joke about Danny DeVito, and proceeds to buy a new controller. It can be found here.

The Golden Girls:
They did this for when Dorothy's six foot, three hundred pound, cross dressing (but straight) brother Phil dies. His wife has him dressed in a teddy to be buried and Sophia gives the priest an exaggerated story of how smart and gifted Phil was. Dorothy tries to fix the problem Sophia makes by telling the priest. The priest responds with that he can just look at a person to know about them. Hilarity Ensues. Taken even further when four shapely, black-clad and veiled figures show up at the funeral; they weren't sluts, they were Phil's poker buddies.
In another episode, despised neighbor Frieda Claxton dies of a sudden heart attack after Rose tells her to "drop dead!" Mrs. Claxton has no family to take care of the final arrangements, so to assuage Rose's guilt, the housemates undertake the matter. The only person who attends besides the four main characters is a woman who gives a beautiful eulogy...then realizes she's at the wrong funeral. When she finds out whose funeral it really is, she kicks the coffin. Then the funeral home cremates Mrs. Claxton by mistake.

In Johnny English, the titular character chases down a hearse that's holding a coffin which contains the crown jewels of the British throne, but inadvertently chases down the wrong car after the original hearse shakes him off. The new hearse he's following is carrying a corpse to a graveyard for a funeral. He questions the mourners and the priest, thinking they're all actors engaged in a cover-up and paying remarkable attention to detail ("Real tears! Do you get paid extra for that?"). Bough shows up and stops English from further embarrassment by claiming to be a doctor from the "Lunatic Response Unit" here to recover "Gunter", who wasn't supposed to be let out until 2028. English goes along with the "escaped mental patient" cover ("fwbib, fwbib!") until they're out of sight.

The Dream SMP hosted a funeral for Jschlatt after his death in the Manburg Civil War. Nobody except BadBoyHalo took it seriously, resulting in Schlatt's pictures being shot off the walls or defaced with penises, people stealing his body parts (renamed items placed in a chest, as Minecraft-corpses disappear upon death), Tommy and Tubbo playing with his bones, and to cap it all off, Quackity singing a horribly autotuned song about how Schlatt is burning in hell, before eating his heart.

The Mary Tyler Moore Show: The classic "funeral" episode, and widely hailed as the funniest sitcom episode ever, is "Chuckles the Clown Bites the Dust." Aired early in the show's sixth season, Chuckles, the host of WJM-TV's children's show, is killed during a freak incident at a circus parade; an elephant goes wild and during the rampage, Chuckles — dressed as a peanut — is caught in the chaos, knocked down and trampled beneath the pachyderm's weight. When the death is announced, Mary had berated her fellow co-workers for not taking Chuckles' death seriously and instead laughing at the silly circumstances of his death; "He was dressed as a peanut and the elephant tried to shell him," remarks one. Then, when the funeral takes place, Mary suddenly breaks out in uncontrollable hysterics ... and then the priest presiding tells her that, as a clown, Chuckles would want her to laugh, at which point she starts bawling uncontrollably instead..

Men with Brooms has a brief scene, less than thirty seconds long, of the private funeral service for Coach Foley, by way of introducing Gary Bucyk, a funeral director. What should be a simple cremation service goes awry when:
1) The conveyer belt's motor shorts out, causing 2) the recording of Amazing Freaking Grace to play in reverse, along with 3) Causing the coffin to start moving away from the oven and towards the end of the belt. They try to keep the coffin from falling off the end, only for it to 4) Tip over onto its end, the lid popping open and 5) Coach Foley's body almost falling out, only to be caught by 6) Gary grabbing the Coach by the face and throwing him back in the coffin, only for 7) the belt to start moving the right direction, Gary's coat to get caught in the lid of the coffin when it slams shut, 8) Dragging him onto the conveyer belt with the casket and being dragged towards the oven, all while the grieving family sits and watches, horrified. All of this in a scene that again, lasts less than 30 seconds.

In Concession, during Mariam Jansen's funeral, Roland complains about the boring food: "The old lady may be dead, but my taste buds aren't!" When a guest says she wants to say to her, "ey, c'mon now... Just get up already..." Angie shouts, "That's what SHE said!" Roland high-fives her, and Thonnen is visibly angered. Things take a turn for the dark later as that night Roland's clothes get stolen somehow, leaving him naked outside, while Thonnen is raped to continue the family line.

Family Guy:
In the episode "Peter, Peter, Caviar Eater", Peter attends the funeral of one of Lois' relatives. When he learns she left her a vast inheritance, he starts dancing with the corpse. The funniest part of this is when everybody stares in horror at what Peter's doing. His attempt at getting out of this is to drop the corpse and say "Oh my God. She's dead."
In one of the cutaway gags involving Quagmire (more specifically the one in the episode "Airport '07" that was a DVD-exclusive scene), there is a funeral of a woman who was implied in the eulogy to have died a virgin, only for Quagmire to pop out of the coffin and dance away in his underwear, heavily implying that he committed necrophilia (on a side note, the DVD commentary for this episode stated that the censors only objected to this scene because the woman who died was a virgin, not because of the heavily-implied necrophilia).
During a near-death experience in "#JOLO", Peter pictures his own funeral — fat hula dancers flank his coffin, while three monkeys in bellhop costumes sing "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer". Meanwhile, all the mourners are eating soft pretzels, and a midget clown riding a dog throws a pie in Meg's face.

In My Family, a patient of Ben's dies just after telling him he's been having an affair. It later emerges that for the years it had been going on, he was telling his wife that he was going golfing with Ben, leading her to believe they were much closer than they actually were and asking him to give the eulogy. Throughout the episode, Ben tries to keep what is going on from Susan, while both the wife and mistress keep visiting him to talk about the patient, leading Susan to become suspicious that he is having an affair. This culminates in her bursting into the funeral, Ben blurting out the truth, and then declarations of "He loved me!" from the man's wife, mistress... and boyfriend.

Avenue 5: In the second episode, the crew and passengers have a funeral for Joe by placing him in a coffin and ejecting it into space... but the coffin's weight means it doesn't get enough momentum and is stuck in orbit around the ship, leaving everyone to watch as it constantly circles them. Later, they have another funeral for some passengers who died from wounds sustained in the original accident, and try to solve the problem they had with Joe by using lightweight coffins and bursts of compressed air to push them past the ship's gravity well. But the gravity gets reset just as they're launched, robbing them of that momentum and leaving them also orbiting the ship.

This trope is also seen in the movie Amazon Women on the Moon, in which a grieving widow watches her dead husband's funeral turn into a "celebrity roast", and she is ultimately compelled to give a classic roast-style speech (the deceased's "rebuttal") as her eulogy.
This funeral is so much fun that the last scene of the sketch shows the funeral home's sign, telling passers-by that the funeral has been held over several weeks.

The Tonight Show: During the early 1980s, Johnny Carson and the show's comedy troupe did a parody of the E.F. Hutton commercials (tagline: "When E.F. Hutton talks, people listen"). The parody ad was set at a funeral visitation, where a young stockbroker is talking with one of the deceased's brothers; as soon as the stockbroker says "E.F. Hutton," all conversation and mourning immediately stops and everyone turns their attention to the gent ... including the deceased guy (Carson), who sits up in his casket to hear what the guy has to say!

In Awkward., Ricky Schwartz's funeral (or more accurately, his shiva) shows several of Ricky's heretofore unknown paintings, including a self portrait of himself as a pimp with several scantily clad women around him and several paintings of women with huge breasts, apparently inspired by his busty female family members, and the fact that he was breastfed until he was 8. Jenna also eats some of the apparently awful-tasting food, which led to her spitting it into a nicely decorated vase...that turned out to by Ricky's urn. His candlelight vigil turns into a drunken Wild Teen Party, but not before several girls (and some guys) reveal that Ricky broke their hearts and they hated him.

Only Fools and Horses featured an episode where Del Boy and Rodney buy a couple of urns from Trigger. One of them turns out to have the ashes of Trigger's grandfather, Arthur, in it. The entire episode centers on Del and Rodney trying ever more ridiculous ways to dispose of the ashes, while genuinely trying to be thoughtful. At one point, Rodney's grandfather sits up talking to the ashes, while Del responds, pretending to be Arthur. Eventually the ashes are accidentally sucked up by a street-cleaning machine; after some initial horror, Del and Rodney reflect that maybe Arthur would have wanted it that way, since he was a road sweeper. Then they find out that there are more ashes in the other urn; Trigger's grandmother married twice.
In part 2 of the 2001-3 Christmas trilogy, Del Boy and Rodney decide to give their beloved Uncle Albert a burial at sea, by scattering his ashes from the boat they were on (Albert was, before, during and after the war at separate points in the past in both the Merchant and Royal Navy). After doing so, they notice Rodney's wife Cassandra's contraceptive tablets at the bottom of the urn, where Del Boy's son Damien had hidden them as a joke, resulting in Cassandra getting pregnant while they were all dirt poor. As well as desecrating his great uncles ashes, Damien also used the urn as target practice for his toy NERF gun.

Yu Yu Hakusho: Zig Zagging. Yusuke attends his own funeral as a ghost. To his disgust, he finds that some of his classmates are laughing and smiling, causing him to think that they only came just to get extra credit. Then he sees Keiko crying over his death, and Kuwabara mourning over his death and commenting that he was supposed to be there for him. Then he notices Iwamoto and Akash, who seem to be rather glad that he was already dead. But Mr. Takanaka confronts the two, and proceeds inside their house. He follows him, and seems to be a little bit surprised to see the teacher mourn over his death. He also sees his mother, also doing the same. The kid whom he saved is also there with his mother, and as they leave the kid tells his mother that he was really a nice guy even though some people there were angry at him. Seeing how much he's missed by his childhood friend Keiko, his mother, his rival Kuwabara, and his homeroom teacher gives him the resolve necessary to go through some difficult ordeals to get himself resurrected.

The Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye:
Because the Scavengers didn’t know him that well (and didn’t even really like him), Flywheels’s “funeral” (for lack of a better term), ends up consisting of Misfire insulting the deceased before the group robs his corpse. They don’t even bother to bury him before leaving.
One story arc involves the Lost Light crew being invited to Thunderclash’s funeral... which isn’t really a funeral because Thunderclash isn’t dead yet. It’s more of “preemptive wake” than anything, and mostly consists of a dance party. Also, despite everyone insisting that they loved Thunderclash and will remember him dearly, nobody actually seems all that sad to see him go. And this all happens before the monsters show up...

In the Deadpool issue Funeral for a Freak, Deadpool, who had died in the previous issue when he turned against the agency he had been working for, was able to attend his own funeral. What made this issue unique was that the entire issue was "Silent", with no dialogue. Deadpool plays various gags on the mourners as a ghost, such as getting a blind woman — Blind Al, for those familiar — to fall into his grave. He eventually crosses to the afterlife, where Death is waiting to seduce him, but is returned to life before anything occurs.

An episode of Hot in Cleveland features the gals crashing a funeral in order to obtain a rare copy of "Soap Opera Digest" which featured Victoria. Such things as climbing into the coffin, losing a ring, and believed the deceased was in fact murdered all occur.

The music video for Rammstein's "Haifisch". Let's see, two women Till slept with get into a cat fight, the remaining band members discuss right there who to replace him with, said band members spend it fantasizing about how they would have killed Till (well, except Paul, he just fantasized about getting spanked by Till), and then they get into a fight, and to top it all off, it turns out that Till had faked his death the entire time and ran off to live on a tropical island.

Night Court:
One episode featured a case where a funeral director decided he would in his words "put the fun back in funeral" including a bumper sticker on the casket saying "I'd rather be breathing".
Another episode ("Baby Talk") featured the ashes of the late Herb being kept by Harry. Problem was that Art mistook the label for herbal tea and used it to test the coffeemaker, leading to the hilarious line, "Art, this wasn't herb tea! This was Herb!", followed immediately by them both turning to Dan, at the coffeemaker, with the mug to his lips.

Star Trek: The Next Generation: In "The Next Phase", Geordi LaForge and Ro Laren are presumed dead in a Teleporter Accident (in reality, they have become "out of phase" due to a Romulan device). Data is put in charge of planning the funeral, but Worf tells him that in Klingon culture, when a friend like Geordi has died, and earned a place among the honored dead, it is a time to celebrate. So, in the spirit of the New Orleans example below, Data throws a bouncy, jazzy wake. When they show up, Ro is shocked and Geordi is amused. Of course, when the pair are rescued from that state right at the shindig, they tell the gang to keep going considering they really have something to celebrate now.
