* ''Main/{{Chespirito}}'' did a few of these in several of his programs, the most memorable being one in ''Series/ElChavoDelOcho'', where the cast holds a trial in Quico and Doña Florinda's house against El Chavo for killing Quico's cat with a bicycle. Profesor Jirafales was the judge, Don Ramón the defense attorney and Doña Florinda the prosecutor. In the end [[spoiler: el Chavo is declared Not Guilty when he explains that he ran over the cat to avoid hitting a man who was [[DistractedByTheSexy "standing like an idiot in the middle of the street watching a pretty lady"]]. That man was Profesor Jirafales himself.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': "The Trial" is about Steven being put on trial [[spoiler:by Homeworld for shattering Pink Diamond]]. Technically it's his mother Rose that's on trial, but as he has her gemstone and is her {{reincartion}}, most gems perceive them as the same person. Complicating matters is that Steven thinks he's guilty (so to speak), but can't give an actual account of things because he wasn't there. He's also given a lawyer who's motivated to help him [[PunchClockHero because she'll be killed if he's found guilty]].

* ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' had a recent example with "A Few 'Gurt Men" in which it starts out with Tina, Gene and Louise doing a pretend trial based on the fairy tale "Snow White" before it turns into a real trial in which the kids must find out who ate Mr. Frond's yogurt during lunchtime.

** This was remade in a skit starring el Dr. Chapatín, the main changes were that it happened in an actual courtroom, he ran over a lady's dog with his car, and instead of [[spoiler:[[DistractedByTheSex the judge looking at a pretty woman,]] he was jay walking while drunk.]]

*** "Dax" looks like it's going to center around the question of whether Jadzia and Curzon [[TheNthDoctor Dax]] are considered the same
person under Bajoran law, much as "The Measure of a Man" centers around the question of whether Data is considered human under Federation law. [[spoiler:In the end, Curzon [[ClearTheirName gets exonerated]], so it doesn't matter.]]
