* In WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's review of ''FullHouse'', he reaches the end and awakes from a dream about the Olsen twins attacking him like the horrible spectres they are. He realizes he must have dozed off and tries to deliver his catchphrase ("I'm the Nostalgia Critic, I remember it so you don't have to") when he is suddenly ''attacked!'' By the Olsen twins! He wakes up with a start, and tries again...only to be ''attacked!'' After several more attempts he looks around nervously, says, "You know what I do and you know why I do it," and rushes off before he can wake up again.

If taken out far enough, and if all the many-layered dreams are substantially the same, what you can get is a GroundhogDayLoop.

* A Halloween episode of ''FamilyMatters'' had Carl suffer a dream-within-a-dream about the evil ventriloquist dummy. He spends most of the episode fighting it, only to discover it was all a dream...only to discover the dummy right next to him. Then he wakes up for real.'

* Lampshaded in the Disney's run of ''{{Doug}}'', when Doug thought Skeeter was vampire, dreaming of himself visiting his friend and finding the proof of Skeeter's vampire nature along with a notepad of people to bite with Patty being next. Doug rushes to her house only to find out Skeeter beat him to it what more it was ''Doug's'' turn to be bitten as vampire Patty points out. Soon his other now undead friends appear and advance on him. Doug then wakes up and relived it was a dream till Sketter and Patty bats suddenly appear. This makes Doug wake up for real moaning "I hate double dreams!"
* In ''RockosModernLife'', the episode "To Heck and Back" begins with Karen (a chicken) interviewing for a job. She gets the job, but it turns out that the job is being processed and packed to be sold at a grocery. The episode continues with Heffer and Rocko at the Chokey Chicken, where Heffer dies after choking on a chicken bone. When he arrives in hell, he is "oriented" by Peaches, a devil, and shows him clips of his sins. Eventually, Rocko manages to save Heffer, and he comes back to life. After a few minutes, Rocko reveals himself to be Peaches, and Heffer wakes up in his room. After calming down, Heffer's house turns into the giant head of Peaches, and Heffer finally wakes up at Rocko's front lawn. He goes to Rocko and meets Karen, the chicken at the beginning of the episode, who is headed to the Chokey Chicken corporation for an interview.

This trope is largely TruthInTelevision and is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_awakening a fairly common phenomenon]]. There is no known name for the true "dream within a dream" variant, however.

* Happened to Mrs. Puff in ''SpongeBobSquarePants''. Most of the episode had her in prison after [=SpongeBob=] drove a car off an "unfinished bridge" and down into a juice truck. Near the end of the episode she woke up and was back in the car, falling and crashing again. This time [=Spongebob=] was arrested. She looked down to see she was in a prison outfit and woke up again, with one of the prisoners in the car instead. She woke up again, giving up, "Oh, forget it."
