* In the theatrical and DVD versions of ''Film/Gremlins2TheNewBatch'', there comes a point where there seems to be a problem with the projector and the film breaks, leaving a blank white screen. It turns out to be gremlins in the projection booth, who wickedly decide to replace the film with a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naturism naturism]] film, and an usher calls upon HulkHogan to restore order.

* ''Series/{{Roundhouse}}'' (an obscure Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} SketchComedy) definitely had this going on, with NoFourthWall and craziness galore.

** In "WesternAnimation/ThugsWithDirtyMugss", an audience member steps up in silhouette and tries to leave, telling the Killer "this is where I came in." Killer makes him sit back down, thinking the guy is going to squeal to the police that the Killer and his gang is going to rob the safe of [[PunnyName Lotta Jewels]]. Cross-dissolve to the police chief. The audience member steps up again and tells the chief of the Killer's plan.

** The WesternAnimation/BugsBunny cartoon ''Hare Tonic'' has Bugs convincing Elmer that he has "the dreaded disease rabbititis." When Elmer catches on and chases Bugs out of the house, Bugs tells him that the audience is coming down with rabbititis. As Elmer runs back inside, Bugs reassures the audience that they're just fine, because if they were sick, they would see red and yellow spots before their eyes, and they would start swirling around until everything went dark. Sure enough, red and yellow spots appear on the screen and swirl around until the screen fades to black... after which we hear Bugs snickering. This is actually extremely common in the Merrie Melodies/Looney Tunes short. See also:
** "The Ducksters", featuring Daffy as a sadistic game show host; he shoots a member of the 'audience' for warning Porky. Also- "Have you got a doctor in the balcony, lady?!"
** In the WesternAnimation/PorkyPig cartoon "The Case of the Stuttering Pig", the villain gloats about his evil plan and tells the audience that there's nothing they can do about it, and singles out "the guy in the third row" as a "softie". At the climax, he suddenly got clocked with a flying theater seat courtesy of "the guy in the third row".
** In "Rabbit Every Monday" Yosemite Sam threatens a silhouetted person with his gun and tells him to sit back down, which the person does while yelping a meek "Yes Sir!" He then turns to the audience and declares "That goes for the rest a' ya![[note]]And I'll do it, too![[/note]]"
** The Bugs Bunny cartoon ''Rabbit Punch'' ends with Bugs Bunny about to be [[ChainedToARailway run over by a train]]. As the train barrels toward Bugs, the film breaks. Bugs walks onto a blank screen and announces, "Ladies and gentlemen, due to circumstances beyond our control, we are unable to continue with this picture. And, uh, confidentially," he adds, holding up a pair of scissors, "the film didn't exactly break."
** Similar ending to the WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck cartoon ''My Favorite Duck'', where the film breaks while Porky Pig is chasing Daffy Duck with a gun. Daffy then appears and offers to finish the cartoon as a narrative and gives a brief and inflated description of him beating Porky with his bare hands leaving him "groveling at my feet!" Only to have Porky sneak up behind him and club him over the head to end the cartoon.
** In the short ''Daffy Duck and Egghead'', after several silhouette interruptions, the annoyed character on screen ''shoots'' the patron who falls dead.

** The best "doctor in the house" moment came in "Hair-Raising Hare": chased by a monster, WesternAnimation/BugsBunny runs through a door, slams it shut, leans up against it panting and begs of the audience, "Is there a doctor in the house?" A silhouette stands up and raises a hand: "I'm a doctor." Bugs pushes off from the door, pulls out a carrot, and gives his CatchPhrase: "Eh, what's up, doc?"

** In the WesternAnimation/BugsBunny cartoon "High-Diving Hare", Yosemite Sam is pounding on a door shouting "Open the door!" - he then turns to us and says "Ya notice I didn't say 'Richard'!" before resuming pounding. "Open the Door, Richard" was an old vaudeville routine (later a popular song).

** 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.
