** The ''WesternAnimation/{{Uncle Grandpa}}'' crossover episode "Say Uncle" declares itself to be non-canon
non-canon.
** In "Know Your Fusion," Sardonyx starts out by seeming pointing out a hole in the fourth wall, right before wall[[note]]"You've made quite the impression already. In fact, there's one in the wall over there *points at screen*, and there *points to the right*..."[[/note]], though there is a literal wall in that direction as well which she could also be referring to. The rest of the episode gets *incredibly* meta
is ''incredibly'' meta. This case is a little more ambiguous than most - she might not actually be aware of the fourth wall of the show itself, but she does act like a game show host, and this makes it very easy for the writers to throw a lot of self-reference into her dialogue.
** In "Steven's Dream," Steven and Greg are taking a tour of a Korean animation studio, which Greg ends abruptly when he sees *himself* ''himself'' being animated...

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' did this in their video game episode, where the characters could see their own life bars.
** LampshadeHanging near the beginning of ''Make Play'': "What did I tell you about breaking the fourth wall, Carl?"
** When the episode's song blames Baljeet for forgetting to bring marshmallows, he starts talking back to it, until Phineas says "Baljeet, would you stop arguing with [[MediumAwareness the soundtrack]]?"
** When they're building a giant robot dog, Baljeet says, "Like when you made that title sequence."
** Subverted in [[WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerbTheMovieAcrossThe2ndDimension the movie]] when we're treated to a duet by the two Dr. Doofenshmirtzes. The original Doof ends the song with, "Twice the evil... Double Doofenshmirtz, comin' at you Fridays!" Alt-Doof replies, "What, are we doing a TV show?" (It should be noted, Friday is typically the day new episodes premiere on the Disney Channel.)
*** Though the song does contain a line about [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Meap's]] voice actor.
** "Meapless in Seattle" gives us this gem:
-->'''Meap:''' My word, [[IFellForHours we've been falling for a long time!]]
-->'''Dr. Doofenshmirtz (in [[SuperDeformed chibi form]]):''' Yeah, it's been almost the whole commercial break.
** Another episode ended with everyone except Candace turning into a baby. Candace then hopes that [[{{SnapBack}} this doesn't carry onto the next episode.]]

* Staying with Jones, the entirety of his Daffy Duck short ''WesternAnimation/DuckAmuck'' is devoted to this very idea, with Daffy being tormented throughout by a mystery director. Daffy spends the entire short talking to the director who is constantly changing the scenery, props, and even Daffy himself with the use of a paintbrush, pencil, and eraser. And in the end, the director turns out to be Bugs Bunny!

** Quite a few characters do this, but the pony Pinkie Pie is easily the reigning champion; for her, there's pretty much NoFourthWall at all. In only the second episode, she babbles to the audience about how much fun it's going to be having Twilight Sparkle living in Ponyville, and even briefly interrupts the IrisOut.

** One of season 2's episodes is titled ''Ultimate Deadpool'', with said character even hijacking the ''series'' title screen for himself, just to let anyone not familiar with the character know ''exactly'' what kind of episode it's going to be.

** And speaking of season 2: "The Biggest Fan", being about an overly obsessed Sonic fanboy, obviously does this in spades, from jokes about Sonic's arms and sports tape to Mark (the fanboy in question) having several fanfictions, quite a few of which [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar are hinted at not being work safe]]. The fourth wall was never the same after that day...
