Added DiffLines:

** Also, Creator/AlecBaldwin. What makes this especially funny is that in the earlier episode Homer had actually worked as an errand boy for Baldwin (and Creator/KimBasinger and Creator/RonHoward too) and had spent a great deal of time with him. The voice of the marine biologist should have been ''very'' familiar to him.
** Artie Ziff (Jon Lovitz) once visited Moe's. As he walks in, he sees several of the other characters whom Lovitz had voiced throughout the show's history. They all greet him in Lovitz's/Ziff's voice.
** Similarly, at the end of Bleeding Gums Murphy's "death" episode, [[TheLionKing Mufasa]], [[StarWars Darth Vader]], and Creator/JamesEarlJones all appear as ghosts in the sky alongside Bleeding Gums. When Murphy tells them to go away, they all say "We're sorry" in the same voice triple-recorded.

* Winked at in ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks'' episode "Or Die Trying", which starts off with a trailer for [[ShowWithinAShow Soul Plane 2: The Blackjacking]]. Among the numerous celebrities noted to star in it is John Witherspoon, Robert's voice actor.
** Additionally, John Witherspoon actually ''plays Robert'' in an in-series music video, "Eff Granddad." Robert's comment: "That's the dude from Film/{{Friday}}!" Robert [[ActorAllusion also mentions Friday]] many other times throughout the series, once referring to it as his favorite movie.

* A weird AnimatedActors example; in the ''WesternAnimation/DuckDodgers'' episode "Talent Show A-Go-Go", Dodgers (who is credited in the opening credits as being played by Daffy Duck) steals Tom Jones' voice. In the past, Tom Jones gets Dodgers' voice, and complains he sounds like Daffy Duck.
* A ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode has Greg attempt to play an Estelle album to the disapproval of Garnet, Estelle's character.

** Both RickyGervais and SteveBuscemi have appeared twice on the show - once as themselves and different episodes playing separate InkSuitActor characters.
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/MenInBlack: The Animated Series'', the worms write a [[Film/MenInBlack movie treatment for MiB]] which gets produced, starring Creator/WillSmith and TommyLeeJones... and the CGI version of the worms who look more like the Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles than their actual selves. J complains that Will Smith looks nothing like himself.

* The ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' episode "Buster And Babs Go Hawaiian" had a brief visual gag involving RobinWilliams as Literature/PeterPan in ''Film/{{Hook}}''. The very next episode ("Henny Youngman Day") featured Robin's FunnyAnimal [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed counterpart]], Robin Killems. Not that big a paradox, though, considering [[RuleOfFunny the nature of the show]]. And if you accept the premise of AnimatedActors, "Killems" could just be a cross-species impersonator.

* Parodied in ''PhineasAndFerb'' when they make a movie to make Candace famous. Through some careful editing, they make Candace look like Ashley Tisdale, who is Candace's voice actor.

* The [[RockyAndBullwinkle Fractured Fairy Tale]] "Sleeping Beauty" had a Prince Charming that was a caricature of Walt Disney. He used the Sleeping Beauty mythos to create an amusement park around it.

* In the final arc of ''WesternAnimation/{{Spider-Man The Animated Series}}'', Spidey visits several alternate universes each with their own Spider-Man. In one of those, Spider-Man doesn't exist -- but the comics and films do, and its "Spider-Man" is an unnamed actor who plays him. Spidey then meets StanLee and talks to him until Madame Webb arrives to take Spidey back. When he sees Webb, Lee remarks "Who is that exotic woman?". Madame Webb was voiced by Joan Lee, Stan Lee's wife.
* In one ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' episode, Darkwing tries to sell a screenplay about himself, but the studio rejects him. He threatens: "I think Creator/{{Disney}} will be more forthcoming!"
** To clarify, Darkwing was actually trying to sell the script of a licensed comic book about himself, as he decided to personally write the script after seeing the initial treatment negatively portraying him as a coward. However, to get him back, the head of the company refuses to publish the comic, resulting in said Disney line. Interestingly enough, at the time the episode aired Disney actually did have their own temporary comic company, and one of the titles they published was a mini-series that adapted the show's 2-part pilot.
