** The show's studio audience by the latter half of the run was actually filled with hardcore fans of the show that were excited to be there (versus the "Hey you're visiting Hollywood, come in and watch a TV show being filmed!" that many shows did) and maybe at times were a little...overboisterous (the many moments where its obviously breaking the flow of the characters waiting abnormally long times to speak or continue a conversation because the crowd's going crazy)[[note]]In one of David Garrison's return guest shots, the applause at his entrance goes on for so long that he actually breaks character for a moment, comically looking at his watch.[[/note]] , but they crew and actors were always extremely offended at the notion. They didn't NEED sweeteners/canned laughter.

Added DiffLines:

** Additionally, the frequent scenes in which charcters are climbing the stairs to Sheldon and Leonard's apartment are filmed in piecemeal fashion (each floor being a redress of the same set) and impossible to pull off with a live audience.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' episode [[Recap/TheAmazingWorldOfGumballS5E8TheTest "The Test"]] Gumball decides to try and break out of his role as [[LoserArchetype the loser]], which causes the show to turn into a lame, outdated sitcom centered around Tobias. As well as the show [[StylisticSuck suddenly having poorer video and sound quality]], it adds a laugh track that, as Sarah points out, gets louder the worse the joke is.

* ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' parodies the use of laugh tracks in the episode "Old Lady House: A Situational Comedy", where Dennis puts sound effects over surveillance footage of Charlie and Mac's moms to make a sitcom out of their exploits, with characters noting that the laugh track turns what would otherwise be [[DudeNotFunny problematic situations]] into something funny and palatable.

* On one episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'', the cast were making their own parody of a sitcom. There was CannedLaughter every time somebody made a joke, no matter how cheesy or lame it was. Later, [[ButtMonkey Stumpy]] walks in through the door, and a laugh track plays, causing him to get annoyed.

** Original series episode "The City Of Clipsville" was the girls and the Professor looking back at their past. It ends with the voiceover and superimposed caption "''The Powerpuff Girls'' was recorded in Burbank in front of a live studio audience," with canned laughter and applause over it.

Added DiffLines:

* ThePowerpuffGirls revival episode "Somewhere Over The Swingset" had the girls entering an alternate world Townsville where everything is 50's sitcom perfect and every line is met with canned laughter/reactions. The girls even want to know where the laughter is coming from.
