* Creator/{{ABC}} forced the producers of ''Series/{{Roseanne}}'' to do an episo-''ahem'', {{infomercial}}, about Disneyland. The producers retaliated by doing an episode about one of the characters being brainwashed while working at (almost literally) a Nazi theme park.

*** And ''Series/FamilyMatters''... hell, pretty much every ABC sitcom in the '90s was forced to take a trip to [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disneyland]] at some point, where wonder and romance invariably bloomed. Paris episodes were mandatory too for some reason.
*** ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'''s Disneyland episode even had a brief CrossOver when Corey ran into Dana from ''Series/StepByStep'' (which was also filming there that week).
*** Even [[Series/TheMuppetShow the Muppets]] went to Walt Disney World. JustForFun/StatlerAndWaldorf, true to form, still complained... about the place having nothing to complain about.
*** [[Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch Sabrina]] did a Disney World episode specifically to promote the opening of Animal Kingdom (as well as the Animal Kingdom Lodge resort which didn't actually open for another 3 years).
*** Add ''Series/ModernFamily'' to the list, as they did a Disneyland episode.
*** And ''Series/TheMiddle''.
*** ''The Chew'' has also done a yearly taping on location at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.

Added DiffLines:

** The US version is also taped at Ride/UniversalStudios Hollywood; so near the end of each season there's usually a segment showing the finalists enjoying the park.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/AmericasFunniestHomeVideos'' has the most blatant examples of Disney plugging of any ABC Series. Every season the grand prize will always be a trip to one of the Disney parks, and at least part of every season's finale always takes place at a Disney park. Clips are often shown featuring Disney characters or franchises, and to make it worse, a Disney-featured clip sometimes wins the episode (or season's) grand prize.

Added DiffLines:

* A common pro wrestling trope is the name a recap or highlight segment after a sponsor or sponsor's produce, which in 2007 meant Wrestling/{{TNA}} had the questionable named "''Film/{{Superbad}}'' move of the night".

** ''TheBradyBunch'': The 1973 episode "The Cincinnati Kids" was a 30-minute plug.
** ''ThePartridgeFamily'': An episode that aired earlier in 1973 � "I Left My Heart in Cincinatti" � was ''also'' a 30-minute plug.
** A few episodes of ''LetsMakeADeal'' (both ABC daytime and syndication) offered a trip to the otherwise mundane destination of Cincinnati so the winning contestant could visit King's Island. (Coincidentally, daily passes for the duration of the week-long trip, along with vouchers for the concessions stands were thrown in.)

* Because the network in ''Film/TheTrumanShow'' is devoted to showing Truman's entire waking life, ProductPlacement is done by his family and friends (i.e. the supporting cast) delivering {{Enforced Plug}}s in his presence. An inappropriate and out of place plug is eventually one of the things that cues him in to the [[TrumanShowPlot fakeness]] of his situation.

* In an episode of ''Series/{{Frasier}}'', a caller to Doctor Frasier Crane's radio shrink show, identifying herself as "Pam", complains about her parents-in-law, who live just across the street. They are unable to respect the boundaries, keep inviting themselves over, criticise her cooking and housekeeping, interfere in ''everything'', hijack the childcare, her husband is no help as he's dominated by his mother, and, oh God, they're coming across the street ''right now''. Pam drops to all fours, hides on the floor, begs for silence, pretends they're not in - but wails that they'll let themselves in and check ''anyway'' - and kills the call. Had the caller identified herself as [[EverybodyLovesRaymond Debra]], it might have given the game away...[[note]] ELR and ''Frasier'' are both handled by CBS Television Distribution, and there are other overlaps between production companies with an interest. Unravelling all this is eye-watering, though.[[/note]]
** This scenario was, in fact, the opening credit sequence to several seasons of Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond...
