* The famous ''Series/SesameStreet'' scene announcing the death of Mr. Hooper subverts this trope. Everyone in the cast loved actor Will Lee, so they all fought back genuine tears. They barely got through it. One line didn't come out quite right, so a second take was attempted. The cast didn't make it through the second try. As a result, the first take was used, in an unusual application of ThrowItIn.

* In series 3 of ''Series/{{Skins}}'', there's a scene where magician JJ breathes fire. Kaya Scodelario, Luke Pasqualino and Jack O'Connell (Effy, Freddie and Cook) were all told that the fire would be added in post-production as a special effect - nobody told them that they'd actually taught Ollie Barbieri how to perform the stunt. Kaya's scream is completely genuine.

** Specific example: One teaser has Elliot telling old jokes and having everyone else finish them for her. She finally shrieks [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=PEliTwhqtHw#t=24s "STOP FINISHING MY AWESOME JOKES!"]] Sarah Chalke didn't tell anyone she was going to play the line like that, and J.D.'s holding his ear and yelling "Oh my God!" was a real reaction on Zach Braff's part.

** Sort of subverted in the episode "Urgo", where Creator/DomDeluise ad-libbed a lot of his lines and unintentionally made it difficult for Christopher Judge not to break his character's stoicism. As a result, he has fewer scenes than usual in this episode.

* Speaking of the Muppets, in the TV special ''The Muppets Celebrate Jim Henson'' Steve Whitmire had only recently taken over the role of Kermit The Frog from the recently deceased Henson. He was told prior to filming that there would only be a small group of the core Muppet performers there with their signature characters. The rehearsals were emotional and difficult for everyone involved so when filming finally came around [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming every single living Muppet performer and almost every character they could cram in at the time (including ''Sesame Street'' characters) crowded into the tiny set in a show of support for Steve.]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pd72rX6c6Kk Here it is in all its glory.]]

* In the episode of ''HomeAndAway'' with Sally's first wedding, Gypsy stands up and interrupts Kieran's vows to reveal that he had been hitting on her since he arrived. While filming this scene, Kimberly Cooper hit her legs on the pew in front of her, meaning that the tears in her eyes were "''reeeeeal'' pain tears."

** The series' next Lois Lane (Noel Neill) was also subjected to this in the episode "The Golden Vulture," which ends with Clark Kent clinging to the side of a boat and asking Lois to help him up. Noel wasn't warned before filming began that George Reeves would then pull her into the water. (Jack Larson confessed in an interview for the dvd extras that this was because Clark was supposed to this to Jimmy Olsen, but he refused.)

** A lot of segments with Jim Henson and Frank Oz (particularly as Ernie and Bert) are loosely scripted and are largely the two actors playing off each other. One segment ends with the painting in the duo's apartment falling off the wall, but it fits so well as a punchline that the camera keeps rolling (and Bert, not missing a beat, screams with surprise).
