* ''WesternAnimation/HomeMovies'' features commentary on a few episodes of their DVDs. One of the more bizarre ones being for the season 3 episode, "It's Time To Pay The Price", which begins Brendon Small and H. Jon Benjamin doing a improvised jam session, and it doesn't stop until around halfway through the episode!

* Creator/JohnCarpenter has made commentary tracks for most of his films, which tend to be very entertaining. The ones with Creator/KurtRussell in particular are clearly two good friends reminiscing and catching up.

Though its inclusion is increasingly common, there are several famous directors who refuse to allow commentaries to be recorded for their [=DVD=]s. The most famous examples are Creator/StevenSpielberg and Creator/DavidLynch. Spielberg says he doesn't want to distract the viewer from watching the movie and anything he has to say about the film can be found on the DVD features. Creator/WoodyAllen has stated that he hasn't seen any of his films since they were released (and most of the [=DVDs=] don't even feature stereo sound). Allen has also given the explanation that he thinks movies should stand on their own merits.

Lynch is insistent on the DeathOfTheAuthor issue and doesn't want to give his own, 'definitive', interpretation of the MindScrew works he's famous for (it's for the same reason that he's a master of the ShrugOfGod).

* ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse'' movies from ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' onward each have a director's commentary on their [=DVDs=] and/or Blu-Ray Discs, which sometimes also features comments from other crew members and/or an actor. As of 2016, Marvel Studios stands as one of only two Disney-owned studios (along with Creator/{{Pixar}}) to regularly include commentaries for their latest movies.

* About one episode on every disc of the American release of BusouRenkin has commentary. The Episode 6 commentary was quite hilarious.

** Jane Espensen recorded commentary for some of the episodes she wrote for in ''Buffy'' season 3, which provide a decent insight into the production process and what it was like to write each episode [[ShowRunner alongside Joss Whedon]]. The one for the episode "Earshot" in particular includes a brief note about how she's [[ViewersAreGeniuses surprised more people don't seem to laugh]] at the fact that [[WrongGenreSavvy Giles assumes]] Buffy's skin irritation is maybe due to something like "[[ComicallyMissingThePoint using a new fabric softener]]", considering her [[ChekovsGun recent exposure to a demon's blood]] and the fact that "[[NamesToRunAwayFromVeryFast they live on the Hellmouth]]!"

**Specifically, they ''begin'' the commentary sober, but openly declare at that point that they will be drinking during it and you can even hear the alcohol being opened and served. In case you thought they were faking it though, there's an entire segment where the commentary cuts out...and then picks up as if nothing happened.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' has Creator/TimBurton, Henry Selick, and DannyElfman doing the commentary. It's at the mid-point; interesting, but a lot of info was already mentioned elsewhere.
