** In the cartoon "The Hungry Goat", Popeye's commanding officer leaves for a day at the movie theater, and warns him not to harm the goat. Later, as Popeye is about to throttle the goat for eating the boat, the goat warns that the admiral could be watching them right now -- and sure enough, he is seen silhouetted against the screen, taking his seat. At the end of the cartoon, the admiral sees the damaged being done to his ship and runs back. He asks Popeye where the goat went, and we see the goat sitting with the audience, laughing.

* The Creator/OsamuTezuka short ''Broken-Down Film'' is full of these type of gags, seeing as it is presented as a [[StylisticSuck bad print of]] [[{{Retraux}} a silent-era cartoon]] set in the Old West. The characters are constantly reacting with the deteriorating film stock - wiping away the surface dust, for example, or escaping the villain while the film is misaligned.

** There's also the one with Plucky and Hampton breaking into Warner Bros. Studio through the sewers (Or was it busting out of jail? Either way...) with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reference. [[VideoGame/{{Klax}} This being the nineties]], everyone in the "audience" is vocal about having seen that one coming.

* In ''Disney/KronksNewGroove,'' Kuzco again interrupts to point out that ''this'' one is about Kronk and not ''him,'' actually bringing out the films' posters.

* In ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine,'' leaving Nowhere Land involved crossing a film sprocket line. (Unless that got remastered out...) During the Beatles' live action cameo John reports the sighting of Blue Meanies within the vicinity of this very theatre.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie'', Homer addresses (and insults) the audience. There's also a sign gag in front of the church which says "Silence thy cellphones!", which isn't an issue if you're watching it at home.

** While not actually produced for theaters (it's a TV show, after all), at least three gags [[PaintingTheMedium invoked it]]. One of these occurrences had Hamton J. Pig joyriding in the [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Batmobile]], and upon making a big swerve to dodge a building, he briefly flies out of the film strip. Another episode had Hamton threatening an [[AnthropomorphicPersonification anthropomorphic fire]], and the camera pans out to reveal that the scene is being played out on a film strip. The fire proceeds to burn the strip, comically reducing Hamton into a roasted pig. The WholePlotReference Christmas special had Buster at the edge of a film reel, contemplating suicide ala [[ItsAWonderfulLife George Bailey]]. He later does jump out... in joy, and lands right back in the "film" (this is after he is granted a second chance at life).

[[folder: Web Animation ]]

* The side effects of the Virus from the Strong Bad Email "virus" from ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'', particularly the scene where Strong Bad accidentally leaps off the screen and cannot jump back in, and at the same time, Homestar Runner (whom, as a result of him being affected by the Virus, has The Homestar Runner's torso) detaching his own head and using it to pick up certain icons on the navbar on the bottom of the screen. Then several windows resembling pop-up windows show up on the screen, one of them being an actual pop-up browser window, which most modern browsers will often block.

** ''WesternAnimation/GuidedMuscle'': At the end, after the Coyote falls for the Roadrunner's last trick and gets blown up by his own dynamite trap, he puts up a sign saying "Wanted: One gullible Coyote. Apply to manager of this theater."

* A trailer for ''Film/PinkPanther 2'' running in theaters in the Summer of 2008 showed Steve Martin as Inspector Clouseau sneaking into a movie theater; after the screen switches to a generic "please turn off cell phones and pagers" display, there is a ripping sound and Clouseau appears to cut a hole in the movie screen and step through. Upon discovering the audience watching him, though, he sheepishly steps back through the hole and ineptly tries to repair it with duct tape. The screen then becomes "rear illuminated" to show the movie logo and to highlight the silhouette of Clouseau tiptoeing behind it... followed by the silhouette of the Pink Panther himself.
