* ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps'': "[[VideoGame/NaziZombies Call of the Dead]]": The premise of this map is as follows: ''Film/DawnOfTheDead1978'' director George Romero is making a zombie film, and the lead roles include Creator/SarahMichelleGellar (star of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''), Creator/DannyTrejo (star of ''Film/{{Machete}}''), Robert Englund (Freddy in ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'') and Michael Rooker (of ''Series/TheWalkingDead''). Then real zombies show up and the actors have to put what knowledge of horror films they have to good use...that is load up on all the guns they can find and blow the everloving crap out of anything that moves.

* ''Series/DesigningWomen'':
** In the episode where Charlene has her baby, DollyParton appeared in a dream sequence as her "Guardian Movie Star."
** Like way too many to name, Dolly Parton has also done this on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. On the other hand, there aren't many who've also played themselves on ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks''...

* The cast of ''Series/FullHouse'' got to meet and hang out with Music/TheBeachBoys, partly owing to the fact that John Stamos (Uncle Jesse) is friends with the band in real life.



* ''Series/{{iCarly}}'': Has done this over the years. With artists and bands such as The Plain White T's, Music/GoodCharlotte, David Archuleta, and Music/OneDirection. David Archuleta is the only one that did not sing, and Good Charlotte are the only ones that were not actually on the webshow, as they performed at an awards show that Carly and friends were nominated for an award. One Direction's episode in particular was promoted as a special episode and [[JustHereForGodzilla brought huge sales to their episode on iTunes]].

* ''Series/TheMiddleMan'': Featured BoyBand Varsity Fanclub in one episode. Not terribly unconventional, except, that they were actually alien dictators who were intent on conquering Earth, and the episode ended with them being ''killed off''.

* ''Series/TheSteveHarveyShow'': Has episodes featuring Snoop Dogg, Puff Daddy (as he was known then), Lil Bow Wow, and Teddy Riley all playing themselves, but only Lil Bow Wow gave a performance. Ron Isley was also a frequent guest star, as one of the members of The Hi-Tops.
* ''Series/TouchedByAnAngel'': Did this in almost every episode, with guests ranging from Travis Tritt to Charlotte Church to Rosa Parks. Yes, Rosa Parks.

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': Loves to subvert this trope, by having celebrity show up and be given relatively minor roles. This is most obvious with their singing guests. They had Bowling for Soup, who did their theme song, come to play the extended them- except no one recognised them, 'cause they were in the future. In "Summer Belongs To You" the boys somehow managed to hire Clay Aiken and Chaka Khan for a single song. The ultimate example would be the "Family Christmas Special", where Kelly Clarkson spends the entire episode trying to sing, but Phineas keeps stopping her because he doesn't want her to work on Christmas.

** Does this a bit, what with it being a show that, in-universe, has celebrity guest singers and dancers perform, but it's mostly the latter, with dance crews such as Instant Noodles, Quest Crew, the Elektrolytes, and even the ''Jabbawockeez'', and whichever dancers win Disney's "Make Your Mark" contest. Carly Rae Jepsen guest starred as herself and had a few lines before her performance. Most of the songs that the [[ShowWithinAShow Shake It Up Chicago]] dancers dance to are from DisneyChannel IdolSingers from ShakeItUp and other shows on Disney.
** Creator/ZendayaColeman and Creator/BellaThorne have had numerous songs appear on the show, and other cast members such as Caroline Sunshine, Adam Irigoyen and Kenton Duty also had songs of theirs played on the show. No mention of the artists who perform the songs are ever made, which brings in CelebrityParadox about someone that is each one of their doppelgangers being singers.Roshon Fegan has rapped on the show and had a song or two of his appear in the show, but it wasn't his characters songs. Other celebs from the DisneyChannel include, Music/ChinaAnneMcclain, Creator/OliviaHolt, Adam Hicks and Coco Jones.

** {{KISS}} appeared in one episode focused on a series of their concerts, and integrated themselves into the Back Story. Gene Simmons and Lois had "history" from high school. And by history, I mean lots of sex.
