* ''Your Friend the Rat'' (from the ''WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}}'' {{DVD}}): CGI are used for the framing scenes of Rémy and Émile. Traditional animation is used for the rest, with a stop-motion scene and a couple of live-action StockFootage shots.

** Monsters in claymation or ConspicuousCG, plunging them [[NightmareFuel straight into]] UncannyValley.

to:

** Monsters A handful of monsters were shot in a different medium like claymation or ConspicuousCG, plunging which had the effect making them [[NightmareFuel straight into]] UncannyValley.look like they were [[NightmareFueldredged up from the deepest, darkest crevasses]] of the UncannyValley. Special mention goes to King Ramses, because of the simple effectiveness that came from the awful [=CG=] that was used to animate him.

* ''Film/RunLolaRun'' has a recurring motif(?) of showing the title character's actions in an animated form.

* An unusual example in the French movie ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0064146/ The Brain]]'' (''Le Cerveau'', 1969). The eponymous Brain (played by Creator/DavidNiven) is exposing to his henchmen his plan for a future train heist... with the projection of a short animated film, [[MartyStu starring himself]]. The real heist go much less smoothly that the one shown in animation, of course.

* The Disney animated film ''Disney/TreasurePlanet'', in the same vein as other animated works at the start of the new millenium such as ''WesternAnimation/TitanAE'' and ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'', utilized both traditional and computer generated animation in almost equal measure to truly impressive effect. While nearly all of these movies bombed at the box office, few would argue it was due to their animation not looking nice enough. What made Treasure Planet particularly remarkable was that the character of Cyborg John Silver had all his cybernetic parts like his leg, arm, and eye, rendered in CG while the rest of him was traditionally animated. The end result is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2oxGAfIm5l0 nothing short of breathtaking.]] Sadly, due to the collapse of the theatrical hand drawn animation market that took place soon thereafter, the concept of blending pure CG with hand drawn animation never really had a proper chance to prove itself.

* ''WesternAnimation/PickleAndPeanut'' does this excessively for many of its gags inculding live-action, puppetry and photorealism.
* Each episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Popetown}}'' has a live-action introduction featuring some catholic school class before the animated part. Theoretically tied-in with the episode content, but rather pointless.

Live-action in cartoons is pretty straightforward; it just means there's a filmed part in a cartoon with live actors. An animated segment is the exact opposite, where a live-action show or movie gets a part that's given some traditional 2D, 3D, or stop-motion part. Animation warping technically keeps an animated show animated, but with a different style than the norm, like traditional 2D animation into 3D. It's probably easier to just list them all as Medium Blending for the moment, as some examples can get tricky with multiple different varieties.

*** Also this episode may also count because all of the things drawn with the magic pencil are represented in a crude 2d art style.
