* "[[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS6E7OnceMoreWithFeeling Once More, With Feeling]]" from the sixth season of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. The episode bizarrely sends up the musical genre (and its respective subgenres) as a whole, musical and dance genres from rock to ballet, and (in typical Creator/JossWhedon fashion) the series itself with wicked glee, yet also manages to fit plot and CharacterDevelopment in as well ''and'' come up with a plausible (for ''Buffy'') explanation for why everyone's singing.@@@** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_fcXR6t14k&feature=related THEY GOT THE MUSTARD OUT!]]@@@** It was so well-known it made it into Creator/Channel4's top 100 musicals at number 13, above such notables as ''Theatre/LesMiserables'' and ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera''...

* The episode "Bedtime Stories" of ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' is a spoken-word equivalent of this in which Marshall attempts to calm down Marvin on a crowded bus by telling him bedtime stories; the trope applies because the entire episode is spoken in rhyme (as are the stories). Creator/LinManuelMiranda guest stars as Gus, the guy sitting on the bus next to Marshall and Marvin, and supplies an entire free-style rap verse when Marshall is unable to rhyme the word "Canada" (Gus eventually uses the slant ryhme "janitor"). @@@** Then there's the episode "Girls vs. Suits", which ends with an extravagant musical number in which Barney declares his love for suits.
* ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'':@@@** The fourth season had its musical episode where Charlie actually wrote and then directed a musical, not that his friends would let it be that simple.@@@** Season 12 has "The Gang Turns Black" where the gang are watching ''Theatre/TheWiz'' on tv during a thunderstorm, and a jolt of lightning causes them to not only appear black to everyone else, but also be trapped in a musical as well.

* The second season of ''Series/{{Community}}'' had [[Recap/CommunityS2E11AbedsUncontrollableChristmas "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas"]] which, since it was also their homage to the Rankin Bass stop motion Christmas specials, had several short songs, and the third season ChristmasEpisode [[Recap/CommunityS3E10RegionalHolidayMusic "Regional Holiday Music"]] was a blatant ''Series/{{Glee}}'' parody.
