* ''Film/NeverGiveASuckerAnEvenBreak'': The absolutely crazy movie script that Creator/W.C. Fields reads to his producer, with him falling out of the airplane and onto the remote mountain house of the rich lady and her beautiful daughter, takes up the whole middle part of the film. Every so often there's a cut from the nested story back to the producer in his office expressing incredulity as the script gets crazier.

** In "Memory of a Memory", Finn [[JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind goes inside Marceline's memories]] and is tricked into helping destroy her memory of an important event. To fix this, Finn brings Marceline inside his memories, and shows her his memory of seeing her memory.
** "Five Short Tables" takes this to ridiculous levels when Fionna the Human and Cake the Cat (who are based on Ice King's in-universe RuleSixtyThree fan fiction) are subjected to a story by the Ice Queen about Flynn the Human Being and Jacques the Raccoon, who are being subjected to a story by Ice President about Lynn the Person and Janet the Fox.
* The episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E10TheSaddleRowReview The Saddle Row Review]] from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' works like this, where the top layer has Rarity reading the review, and then the action cuts between the middle layer where the characters are being interviewed about the main plot and the bottom layer of the main plot itself.
