* The short-lived but memorable NBC series 'The New Adventures Of HuckleberryFinn' had Huck, Becky and Tom fleeing a vengeful Injun Joe across time, space, legend and fiction. The three were live-action - almost literally everything else they interacted with was animated.

* ''WesternAnimation/PopeyeTheSailor'': Made possible by the "stereoptic process" (of FleischerStudios, invented in the 1930s), panning across 3-dimensional backgrounds in their cartoons[[note]]they constructed physical models on a rotating table, which was photographed with cels held in front of it one frame at a time[[/note]]. For an example of the effect, watch "Popeye the Sailor meets Sindbad the Sailor".

* ''Undertale'' is done in a 16-bit style, like something out of a SNES game. [[spoiler: Then we get to Flowey's boss fight...]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' (pictured above) has this as a founding artistic element: Some characters are two-dimensional, some are CGI, some are stop motion, some are PaperPeople, and there's even a couple people that are in some way live action (one character is a chinface, for example), etc. The backgrounds are photographs with some alterations added in CGI, while vehicles and objects may be CGI or two-dimensional. Footage shown in-universe is sometimes completely live-action.
** However, the [[BizarroEpisode most apparent example]] would have to be at the end of "The Money". As the Wattersons begin to lose everything they have, they start to lose ''themselves'', starting with Gumball losing his colours. As they attempt to recover their money, they start to warp the world around them, until only the storyboard is seen and they appear drawn on Post-it notes. After they sign the contract, the world returns to normal, but Gumball remains drawn in a Post-it because he refused to sign.
