* ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'' is not actually an example, as each musical number is its own [[SurrealMusicVideo separate and self-contained animated sequence]] and not an insert in a larger plot. Nevertheless, it deserves mention for containing many of the usual elements, since each of its segments is to greater or lesser extent an abstract illustration of the music being played. Some segments are more abstract than others. The opening number, "Music/ToccataAndFugueInDMinor", is easily the strongest example. Compare the very straightforward animation for Beethoven's "6th Symphony".

The musical number in an animated musical in which the animation stops pretending to depict things that are actually happening in the world of the movie and becomes a more abstract illustration of the music. The Disney [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs Acid]] Sequence is not as common as it first seems -- they only belong here if they are not explainable -- usually a whacked-out moment of lighting and choreography, sometimes caused by hallucinations. If it is caused by a dream, see DreamBallet. If it is caused by substance abuse, see MushroomSamba. It shares some characteristics with the BigLippedAlligatorMoment, in that it frequently has nothing to do to with the plot and the characters never mention it again, but a Big-Lipped Alligator Moment, no matter how bizarre and random, is still assumed to have actually taken place in the physical reality of the movie.

* ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' uses MediumBlending to have Moana and Maui interact with Maui's 2D animated tattoos in "You're Welcome". Though for once, it actually plays a part in the plot: Moana is so enthralled by the surreal visuals Maui's song summons, she doesn't even notice when the song shifts from talking about [[IAmGreatSong how awesome Maui is]] to how he's totally going to steal her boat in a few seconds while she's distracted.

* Most of the musical numbers in ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'' are pretty damn bizarre. ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDkp7GysvbY Magic Dance]]'' isn't ''that'' weird, but ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsXtU0rZkAQ Chilly Down]]'' is a straight-up BigLippedAlligatorMoment sung by fuzzy red [[LosingYourHead self-decapitating]]...''things'', ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VppuD1St8Ec As The World Falls Down]]'' is a DreamBallet set at a MasqueradeBall with freaky masks, and ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJ9BHGX58vQ Within You]]'' takes place in a literal Creator/MCEscher maze.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'''s AnimatedAdaptation of ''ComicBook/EmperorJoker'' has one, courtesy of SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker in his VillainSong, "WheresTheFunInThat". It starts off with the Joker playing an electric guitar that came out of nowhere in the blackness, and as he starts singing with a microphone that also appears out of nowhere, the scene shifts to the prison cell and on to the Bat-Signal, where he uses his {{Impossible Shadow Puppet|s}} with his hands to devour the bat shape while on top of the beacon. He then suddenly [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever grows to monster size and attacks the town]]; makes toys out of police vehicles and monsters out of buildings in a manner worthy of ''WesternAnimation/TheTick''; uses AlphabetArchitecture to spell out "The Joker"; and {{dance|OfRomance}}s with the giant Lady Justice statue before dropping her into the water. He then flies upward into the universe, where [[DefaceOfTheMoon his face appears on both the Earth and the moon and the supernova]] before ApocalypseHow Class X-4 is enacted by the latter's kamikaze attack, destroying the universe and leaving a white form where it used to be. A chained-up Batman appears out of the void before the Joker himself approaches behind him, and then his henchmen appear along with Harley Quinn, doing a dance routine worthy of ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'', and it gets even freakier when the Joker recreates the universe using playing cards and sends Batman into the iron maiden near the {{Rube Goldberg|Device}} DeathTrap in front of Bat-Mite and Joker-Mite (who uses the former as a stringed mannequin) as the song is coming to a close. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4zlC8jAISk This video has to be seen to be believed.]] Justified, as Joker has just become a RealityWarper.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'': "Mother Knows Best" is downplayed, but too much is happening that isn't physically possible for it to taken for ''literally'' happening like that. Like the dozens of candles that suddenly appear on the stairs (there wasn't enough time for Gothel to have put them there); the spotlight (in a time before electricity...) controlled by Mother Gothel and how she makes projections (ruffians, poison ivy) in it; she cannot have had enough time to have painted the red "man with pointy teeth" on the floor. Note that Mother Gothel is usually regarded NOT to be a witch (which would be the only explanation for everything to be happening exactly as shown).
