* The 1997 version of ''WesternAnimation/TheMrMenShow'' had framing device segments involving live action characters that were each tied to a particular theme such as exercise or carnivals.
* ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'' is framed by segments involving Bob and Larry reading children's letters on a countertop that usually related to the episode's theme. When the show was broadcast on TV in the mid-2000's, these segments were replaced by ones that took place at Bob's house. In Brazil, the show was part of a show called ''The Vegetable Friends'' involving costumed character versions of the [=VeggieTales=] cast playing in their house in between the stories, and it also included music videos where the characters traveled to different places.
** ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTalesInTheHouse'' is the only piece of the franchise that does not use a framing device.

* ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'' featured an episode told through Princess Carolyn's great-great-great granddaughter. She tells her about Princess Carolyn's really bad day (such as her miscarriage and inability to conceive, firing Judah, and breaking up with her boyfriend), along with some "worldbuilding" side plots involving other characters. [[spoiler: At the end of the episode, it's revealed that the granddaughter is entirely fictional, and was made up by Princess Carolyn as a story to keep herself happy.]]
