* 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.

** 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. [[{{Klax}} This being the nineties]], everyone in the "audience" is vocal about having seen that one coming.

** In the cartoon ''How Green is My Spinach'', a DangerouslyGenreSavvy Bluto creates a formula that wipes out all the spinach in the world, including Popeye's. As Bluto sweeps the floor with Popeye (literally), the narrator[[note]]Voiced by Jackson Beck, who also voices Bluto in all the Famous Studios-era color shorts[[/note]] asks, "Can this be the end of our hero? Can't anybody save him? Is there a can of spinach in the house?!" The short abruptly goes from a color cartoon to black & white live-action, showing people watching the cartoon (still in color) in a movie theater. A worried boy pulls out a can of spinach from a grocery bag, yells, "Here, Popeye, catch!", and tosses it to the screen. [[OnceAnEpisode You can probably guess the rest.]]

* At the end of ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', [[Creator/RobinWilliams the Genie]] actually lifts up the film and says, "Made you look!" This one is based on early reactions by test screenings; after test audiences starting leaving the film early during a cut Arabian Nights reprise, the animators replaced with the Genie-as-the-moon laughing, causing anyone who's leaving early to turn back wondering if there's more of the film left.

* Tenchi Masaki's near-death out-of-body experience in the 19th ''TenchiMuyo'' OVA episode was represented as the classic clattering of a malfunctioning projector and film sliding out of position. Never mind that it was made in the 21st century on computers for a DVD release.
