* {{Sitcom}}s do this extensively, especially during TheEighties, usually punctuating a last gag. Kenneth parodied this in an episode of ''Series/ThirtyRock'', when he did his own personal freeze frame ending, while everyone else puzzled at him suddenly standing in a frozen MilkTheGiantCow pose.

This trope can be specific kind of [[BreakingTheFourthWall Fourth Wall-breaking]], in instances when a character looks directly into the camera, but still is not completely breaking the fourth wall as it is often treated as an addendum to the actual work. It may also be a PastelChalkedFreezeFrame.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Series/RedDwarf'' episode "Balance of Power" ends on a freeze frame of Lister leaping into the air in victory. This was done as a pragmatic measure: while filming the scene, the actor landed badly and injured his back, rendering the end of the shot unusable and preventing reshoots.

* ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Government_Inspector The Government Inspector]]'' by Creator/NikolaiGogol ends with the officials hearing that the ''real'' inspector wants to see them. According to the author's instructions, everyone is supposed to freeze in place (in thoroughly described positions) until the curtain falls over a minute later. Few performances have managed to follow these demands to a letter; Vsevolod Meyerhold actually used dolls for the scene.

''Because of various discrepancies with the new site, another yk is needed to be made in order to re-launch the trope from [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/discussion.php?id=nracwqg9mevyz61f8xs1d5oc here]].''
