* In every episode of ''TheMonkees'', slapstick gags are punctuated by the music.

* Used in ''TheBluesBrothers'' when the eponymous duo are trying to sneak into the performance, with the band playing "Minnie the Moocher" as the music (although being heavily musically inclined, the two are doing it on purpose).

* Pretty much anything with JerryLewis in it incorporates this at some point or another. Justified, since he always played a piece of dummy music whenever he was doing scenes on a set, so that he could use the tempo as a structure for his act, and then replace it with another song with a similar tempo in post-production. He said in a behind-the-scenes video of "The Day The Clown Cried" that he learned this from CharlieChaplin, who said he never went on set without a violin or another instrument providing music to structure his own act.

* Done to an almost ludicrous degree in ''DownWithLove'', which was an homage and period piece for movies from the sixties. Even a character blinking merits musical stings.

* Two scenes in ''HudsonHawk'' features two thieves robbing places while...[[BigLippedAlligatorMoment dancing and singing]]. For them, [[YouFailLogicForever it's a way to remain synchronized]].

* In a rare live action example, ''TheDickVanDykeShow'' used it to great effect -- but then, Creator/DickVanDyke is something of a walking cartoon when he wants to be.

Scoring a segment such that the music punctuates the physical motions occurring. This is a technical term coined in [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation the early days of animation]], though the practice of synchronizing actions to the rhythm of the music goes back much earlier.
