* The episode, 'Gazpacho Stands Up', of ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}'' has the main character scribbling on things in an effort to "improve his handwriting." After he scribbles on the camera lens, Gazpacho tells him not to draw there, after which the camera adjusts during Chowder's response to show the effect of the scene. Gazpacho then requests for the camera to come closer so he can clean it off. After cleaning it, Chowder points to the opposite corner of the camera, where the "Cartoon Network" logo is placed on broadcast shows. Gazpacho explains that he has tried to remove it, but that it won't come off.

* ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeTheMovie'' has one in its [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DN034sBeF4c awesome intro.]] A Crimson Guard parachutes down and seems to have no other objective than to punch the screen, which visibly shatters when his fist makes contact...only to cut to another angle, showing that he is actually [[InvulnerableKnuckles punching a television crew's recording camera so hard that it shatters violently]]. A two-fer of literal Camera Abuse flipped around to become a FourthWallPsych.
