* ''Film/ToughGuys'' (1986). Archie Long (Kirk Douglas) is invited to a disco by a much younger woman, who tells him to wear something "hot". As he's been in prison for the past thirty years he doesn't know what to wear, so Archie goes to a clothing store where the CampGay owner, [[TheTelevisionTalksBack watching from a monitor screen]], makes Archie wear a series of outfits until he's satisfied.

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': Candace in "Flop Stars", Stacy's commentary.
** Also from the episode "Boyfriend From 27000 B.C.", where Candace tries to find a costume for Stacy's costume party.
** Carl gets one in "Undercover Carl," accompanied by his theme song. [[WholesomeCrossdresser "Now he's wearing a pinafore!"]]
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' - episode "Legends of the Dark Mite!" Done by Bat-Mite to Batman. Each of the costumes is some manner of MythologyGag.
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' - Suitably, Roger has a Costume Test Montage (multiple times throughout the series). Having a loose FourthWall, Rodger sometimes gleefully announces the trope he's invoking.
* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' - Dee Dee and her friends do this to Dexter after he crashes their slumber party in "A Tribe Called Girl".
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** Episode "Bart the Lover"
** In one episode, when Lisa feels that Maggie is now the smart one in the family, she feels insecure and decides she needs to find a new identity, and tries several outfits. Nothing feels right.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** In the first episode, Rarity does one of these to Twilight Sparkle. "Too green! Too yellow! Too poofy! Not poofy enough!"
** At the start of "One Bad Apple", Apple Bloom goes through one of these while trying to dress to impress her visiting cousin Babs Seed.
* In the episode "Clothes Minded", ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' tried a bunch of different outfits after her original mission duds got ruined. At one point, we see a montage of Kim trying various options, none of which meet Ron or Rufus' approval.
* ''WesternAnimation/CloneHigh'': Joan of Arc suffers through no less than two makeover costume montages by Abe and Cleo respectively, and Gandhi gets one courtesy of Kennedy. (The winning outfit is of course an exact duplicate of JFK's clothes, plus wig.)
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' short "Buster's Guide to Dating", Babs rejects [[LimitedWardrobe her usual outfit]] and starts running in and out of her closet in different outfits. Finally, an animated animator's hand paints the scene yellow and Babs ends up in... [[spoiler:[[LimitedWardrobe her usual outfit]]]]! "Perfect! Thanks."

what Garth should wear for his date.

* When Virgil is first deciding to be a superhero in the ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'' cartoon, he has a montage like this with Richie as the arbitrating audience. One of his costume ideas (a dead ringer for [[{{WesternAnimation/Superfriends}} Black Vulcan)]] "looks like a battery advertisement." Most of them are either stupid or too similar to someone else's look. It's a fascinating window on his character that he already had all this stuff in his closet.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Sixteen}}'', this happens when Jen and Caitlin critique of what Garth should wear for his date.
* In ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'', when Wander loses his magic hat in "The Bad Hatter", Sylvia takes him to a hat shop where he tries on many potential replacements in front of a mirror, such as a tiny top hat and a wizard's cap.

* Discussed in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', in Season 8 "Quagmire's Dad", but with sex changes. When Quagmire's dad decides to get a sex change to become a woman, Peter has this to say:
-->'''Peter''': You know what we should do? We should put on some '80s music, and then every few minutes have him come out of there as a different sex, and we'll go ''(crosses his arms and shakes his head "No")'' And then like the fifth or sixth sex, we'll go like this ''(gives two thumbs-up and nod "Yes")''
