Combination of sight gags and reaction shots originally from silent film and vaudeville taken to a predictably ridiculous extreme. These include:
- Aside Glance
- Double Take
- Eye Take
- Flip Take
- Glasses Pull
- People Fall Off Chairs
- Shrug Take
- Spit Take
- Wild Take
Examples of The Take include:
- In one episode of Garfield and Friends, Garfield mentions while speaking to the audience he has a particular dislike of cartoon characters who overreact with Wild Takes (which, ironically, describes the hypochondriac Wade Duck on the same show pretty well).
- In an episode of Tiny Toon Adventures, Plucky Duck gets stuck in a Wild Take.
- Averted in Daria, whose shtick involves rarely reacting noticeably to any sight gag beyond a subtle change of facial expression.
- A particular take is someone coming across something harmless that they find scary, like a rat or cockroach, and then screaming while grabbing at another person.
